Two familiar faces from the DCEU are back for Justice League. As part of an official announcement from Warner Bros, Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor and Wonder Woman’s queen of the Amazon, Connie Nielsen, are officially joining the movie. They’ll appear with our main Justice Leaguers as well as alongside JK Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Amber Heard and Ciaran Hinds. With this announcement also came a new EW image from Wonder Woman that shows Diana stealing the mystical Amazonian sword dubbed “god killer.” EW also says this is the very same weapon we saw her wield in Batman v Superman against Doomsday. Wonder Woman debuts in theaters on June 2, 2017 with Justice League hitting five months later on November 17th.

EW revealed a new image from the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes that also names a character that has a direct link to the original series. The concept art shows a peaceful moment between one of the apes and a human character revealed to be named Nova. Nova is the same character from the original Planet of the Apes, played by Linda Harrison opposite Charlton Heston. EW confirms the Nova in War for the Planet of the Apes is the same character thus offering up the strongest piece of connective tissue between this new franchise and the original.

NEWS RUNDOWN

20th Century Fox is serious about reminding fans of its Alien series that we’re in for a bloody, R Rated film. The studio tweeted another image from Alien: Covenant, this one featuring some blood covered walls of a medical room, signaling some kind of alien attack or chest bursting escape. We’ll have to wait to see what it all means when Alien: Covenent hits theatres on May 19th, 2017.

Michael Fassbender revealed on Josh Horowitz’s podcast happysadconfused, via a report from EW, that he met for a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Fassbender offered no real specifics, nor did he reveal for what role he was up for; only that he did have a conversation with Lucasfilm but was too busy shooting another project at the time.

The first teaser trailer for James Gray‘sThe Lost City of Z has been released. The movie is based on a true tale of British military man, Percy Fawcett, (Charlie Hunnam) who becomes an explorer in search of the lost city in the Amazon. The movie also stars Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland and will premiere on April 14th 2017.
