Joining a departing Mystique, Thor: Ragnarok might see the last appearance of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, with the actor teasing his end in the MCU.Hopefully he’ll continue dressing up as him, though.
James Gunn, however, has been teasing rebirths for Guardians of the Galaxy, sharing images of Groot’s Last Supper and a storyboard look at Starlord searching for his father.“I…AM…JESU-‘Groot’. I mean ‘Groot.'”
Meanwhile, we at Flickering Myth have been teasing Paul Feig to direct Captain Marvel. April Fools (we hope).Melissa McCarthy would play the lead.
Mark Hamill was in a similarly Star Wars pranking mood, promising to reveal a “stunning Episode VIII plot point” on Twitter. Hopefully Adam Driver wasn’t engaging in some early April tomfoolery when he praised director Episode VIII Rian Johnson. That would be really mean.
In Star Wars spin-off news, Ewan McGregor has said he’s not “at liberty to say” whether he’s spoken to LucasFilm head Kathleen Kennedy about an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie. Which means he almost definitely has. He’s very interested in the potential spin-off, but he’s got to make the “really really, really good” Trainspotting 2 script first.
Elsewhere in movie land, Disney are planning a live-action film based on Snow White’s sister, Rose Red.How’d you like them spin-off apples?
…and the latest, increasingly attractive image from Baywatch has been posted online.
To play us out, here’s the week’s best trailer. Richard Linklater’s ‘spiritual sequel’ to Dazed and Confused – Everybody Wants Some.
May the Movies be with you.
