Guy is a huge fan of Tom's work and securing him would be a major coup. There have been conversations and, although nothing is set in stone and things are subject to change, he's certainly one of Guy's favoured choices. It just depends on schedules whether he'll be able to sign up.


Bumblebee

Hailee Steinfeld has confirmed to News Australia that she is indeed staring in the Transformers spinoff.

I am so excited to know that is the next movie I am working on. Obviously I'm coming to Australia and when I come back, we start shooting.


Avengers 4

Speaking with the Telegraph , Chris Evans revealed he agreed to extend his six-picture contract for a fourth Avengers because "it made sense. It's going to wrap everything up."

I had six films in my Marvel contract, so I could have said after the third Avengers I was done, but they wanted to make the third and fourth Avengers films as a two-parter. They said they had so many other characters to fit in - Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant Man - and couldn't get them all into one movie.


Mary Poppins Returns

Rob Marshall revealed to EW why Julie Andrews declined to cameo in the film.

Julie was incredibly gracious, and we talked about it in a very general way but she made it clear right up front. She said, 'This is Emily's show, and I really want it to be Emily's show. I don't want it to be, "Oh, here comes that Mary Poppins." I don't want that. I really want her to take this and run with it, because she will be brilliant.'

He's somewhat a religious figure or spiritual figure. Spirituality is something that exists in Wakanda in the comics, and it's something we wanted to have elements of in the film. Forest's character, more than anything, is a major tie-back to T'Challa's father. Zuri is someone he looks to for guidance.


Bride of Frankenstein

Speaking with THR , Dark Universal producer Alex Kurtzman is really excited Bill Condon is directing Bride of Frankenstein.

I think that variety is going to be our good friend when it comes to the evolution of Dark Universe. You obviously want to set a somewhat consistent tone, so that people know what to expect when you see these movies, but it would be ideal for each movie to have its own identity, which is largely going to be dependent on who is directing the films and who is starring in the films. I'm really excited to see what Bill Condon does with Bride of Frankenstein .

This is a guy who did Gods and Monsters , which is one of my favorite films ever. He uniquely understands James Whale and what those monsters represent and Frankenstein's Bride. I want it to feel like a Bill Condon movie. As an audience member that's what I would want, and I would apply that to all of our films.

One of the things we wanted to do was talk about what Claire was doing in those 20 years as well. The way we've structured the season allows you to experience both [Jamie and Claire's lives] at the same time.
