Lena Hedly (aka Queen Cersei of Game of Thrones) had a nice feature in The LA Times’ Hero Complex this week that highlights her upcoming role in the new Dredd movie (which is based on the late 70’s era Judge Dredd comics). She describes her Dredd character, Madrigal, as “a prostitute who then kills her pimp and takes over his drug-running business.” SOLD! (photo via LA Times Hero Complex)
Robert Kirkman talked about Michonne, The Governor and other matters of import Re; The Walking Dead Season 3 to the good people over at Spoiler TV this week.
Here is a new Prometheus tv spot which doesn’t really seem to show all that much new stuff from the upcoming film aside from reaffirming that it will be awesome. Also of note, this film will be rated R. (via Shock Till You Drop)
Well, would you look at this! Wise, old man Tobey Maguire interviewed up and coming whippersnapper, Andrew Garfield about all things Amazing and Spidey. (via Page 6)
(MILD SPOILER ALERT) Unless you were deader than Agent Coulson this weekend, it will not be news to you to hear that The Avengers made over 700 million bucks in just under two weeks, making it the most successful movie opening basically EVAR. Basking in the afterglow of sweet comic book movie success, Marvel will have you know that, “The Avengers isn’t just a film, it’s a franchise.” To which I say, NO FRIKKIN DUH, Marvel. Joss Whedon, on the other hand, spent the day after the biggest weekend of his life giving a shout out to his “peeps” over at Whedonesque in a rambling post/interview with the long time Whedon fansite’s moderator about how he hasn’t forgotten – and will not forget – those of us who loved him when. At the link he also reaffirms that Dr. Horrible 2 will be made and that he hopes to return TV in the near future. The man of the hour also explained, along with Avengers producer Kevin Fiege, just what that postscript at the end of The Avengers might mean… (via ComingSoon.net, Whedonesque, and /Film)
In Avengers related news, Gandhi got so excited after seeing The Avengers last weekend that he agreed to appear in Iron Man 3, while Edgar Wright was so emboldened about the IP army of Marvel superheroes that he started dropping Antman teaser tweets this weekend. (via /Film and Spinoff Online)
When he’s not busy being a tweet tease, Edgar Wright’s been, well, busy. His latest joint venture with Simon Pegg, The World’s End, is set to start filming in September (via Deadline)
Last up – Deadline reports that the Kickass kids, Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, all have to sign new deals before Kickass 2 can start filming. Good for them! I hope they have fun rolling around in all that money. Kickass 2 is set to be released in 2013 by Universal.
Peace out, people.
