New ‘Iron Man 3’ trailer teaser released

2:30 pm EDT, October 22, 2012

We got our first look at the Iron Man 3 trailer yesterday with a 17 second trailer teaser and now we have a 10 second trailer teaser giving us our first look at Guy Pearce.

Marvel is hitting us with so much Iron Man 3 news we can barely keep up. With the first trailer teaser hitting yesterday and the teaser poster hitting just minutes ago, they’ve now released the second trailer teaser, which is laughably short, but still gives us our first look at Guy Pearce, who will be playing the villain Aldrich Killian aka ‘Extremis’ in the film, who works with nanotechnology.

For those who aren’t quite familiar with the history, Killian and Maya Hansen (old gal-pal of Stark) create the Extremis technology, which is a tool designed for the military which allows nanotechnology to bond to a human being (Could Pepper be kidnapped to be tested upon?). The military later pulled the funding for the project, and Killian (Pearce) decides to move on with human trials with Extremis. Now, this is all comic-lore and may not translate to the film’s plot, but we see a woman slamming Stark against a wall, which could end up being Maya Hansen – Killian’s partner.

If it turns out to be her, their story is that Maya explains to Stark that Extremis is a military nanotechnology serum, which is an attempt to recreate the Super-Soldier Serum (Captain America), which melds with the brain and forces the body to rebuild itself from scratch. The design for the new body can be programed prior to its injection and can be used to create superhuman abilities, giving it highly sought after military applications. Maya had initially taken the military contract to fund her anti-cancer research. Stark would later go on to be injected with the serum, so that he could defeat a certain villain in the comics, so we may see some crossover here where he’ll need the serum to get Pepper back from whichever villain has abducted her.

Tomorrow’s full trailer should give us a better idea of where Marvel is going with the new film and if you can’t tell – we’re excited.

Iron Man 3’s full trailer will be released Tuesday, October 23 and the film will hit theaters May 3, 2013.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
