Remember last month when the rumor mill thought Chris Pine would be playing Steve Trevor in an upcoming Wonder Woman movie? Well, that may be a smoke screen to hide an even bigger announcement: Pine is the Green Lantern, Hal Jordan.

The full rumor is even crazier. Apparently, the Green Lantern Corps, which acts as an intergalactic police force, will be active on Earth when the first Justice League movie is released in 2017, and two Green Lanterns will be joining Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman in their fight. That's right, both classic Lanterns, Hal Jordan and John Stewart, will be active simultaneously in DC's movie universe.

The question remains, who will play John Stewart?

If you were worried about Matt Smith's career after leaving Doctor Who, you can stop now. The 11th Doctor was just officially announced to star in a yet-to-be-named role in the next three Terminator movies.

The movie already has Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Connor, and an appearance by Arnold himself. With the good guys pretty much set, we wonder if Smith will try his hand at villainy?

What do you think of the news?

In an interview with the folks running Daredevil on Netflix, /Film uncovered this neat tidbit of information:

Daredevil fans might appreciate one trivia tidbit about why Rosario Dawson’s character on the show is Claire Temple, rather than Linda Carter, aka Night Nurse. The simple reason is that we might see Night Nurse in a Marvel movie! “The feature side had plans for her down the road so that was the only time we ran into a conflict,” DeKnight said. “So we just used another name.”
With Marvel's slate of movies between now and 2019 already announced, it's not hard to figure out which upcoming Marvel hero she'd most likely be hanging out with, btw... it's Doctor Strange.



And since we know Rachel McAdams is in talks for the female lead, we can only cross our fingers and hope for the best!

Russian, metal-skinned X-Men alum, Colossus is coming to 2016's Deadpool. Along with fellow mutant Angel Dust (Gina Carano), Colossus will tie the movie to Fox's over-arcing X-Men franchise. Unfortunately, the man who's played the role since X2 (2003) will not be coming along.

Daniel Cudmore has confirmed via Twitter, that he will be stepping down from the role. Even though he starred in three movies, Cudmore never really got a chance to explore the character. Here's hoping they give Colossus more screen time in the future.

Who do you think should play Colossus?
