The cast to Marvel's next new super hero franchise is getting bigger and better. Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Tilda Swinton are already confirmed to star in Marvel's psychadelic, magical movie, Doctor Strange. Now, confirming her casting as the female lead, True Detective star, Rachel McAdams will head to the Scott Derrickson project.

While we still don't know who she'll play, the most likely candidates are Clea, a mystical ruler of a parallel dimension:



Or Morgana Blessing, author and occasional subject of possession by the Sorcerer Supreme:



Both are potential love interests and/or antagonists to Benedict Cumberbatch's former surgeon turned super Sorcerer.

French actress Léa Seydoux from Blue is the Warmest Color and the upcoming 24th James Bond pic, Spectre, is reported to have been offered the female lead in Fox's upcoming Gambit solo film. Something of a passion project for Channing Tatum, the actor has been attached to star since the movie was nothing more than a rumor floating around Hollywood.

Léa will reportedly be playing Bella Donna Boudreaux, the daughter of the leader of a New Orleans' assassin's guild, and Gambit's first love. The two are married to unite her father's guild and the theives' guild to which Gambit belongs. Things quickly turn south and after the nuptials the card throwing cajun must flee.



Bella Donna, of course, has her own mutant powers similar to Gambit's, plasma blasts. Will she be an aide to or antagonist of Tatum's anti-hero? The best bet is on a little of both.

We'll see how Channing's cajun accent compares to the natural accent of the French actress. If she accepts the role, this movie could sound weirder than Costner's Robin Hood.

Hugh Jackman's final performance as mutant bad-ass Logan is coming in the third Wolverine solo film, but it looks like he'll be getting a hand from another X-Men cast member, Sir Patrick Stewart.

“There is a project in development. I understand that Professor Xavier will be making more than an appearance, however, and that intrigues me.”


The movie is reportedly exploring the Old-Man Logan storyline that's been popular in the comic books lately. Sir Patrick also seems to confirm that news.

“The idea of an old Wolverine – I’m really looking forward to Hugh Jackman getting old. You know, damn him. He looks so great! So I’m hoping to see him covered in prosthetics, you know? And then he’ll make me look better if that’s the case.”

Move over Equestria Girls - Friendship Games, we got a real My Little Pony movie on the way. Lionsgate and Hasbro are teaming up to bring the Friendship is Magic team to the big screen in 2017. And since everyone loved Idina Menzel as Elsa, why not nab another Wicked alumnus:

"We are pleased to partner with Hasbro to bring their brands to audiences in new and exciting ways... Meghan McCarthy and the My Little Pony cast are a very talented and cohesive team whom we’re happy to be working with and we’re excited about the addition of the very talented Kristin Chenoweth, as we explore new aspects of these characters and new story opportunities for the franchise." - Erik Feig, Lionsgate Co-President
You know it's going to be a musical when you got Kristin Chenoweth.

It's not news that people care passionately about Spider-Man. With the X-Men, the wall crawler is easily Marvel's most famous hero, so his inclusion in the successful MCU is a win by any standards. Unfortunately, when Tom Holland takes over, it'll be the third incarnation of Spidey since 2002, and people are getting a weary of the reboot glut.

In response to this dread, the internet has responded by releasing endless rumors, seemingly just to rustle nerd's jimmies. Here's the rundown.
