Holbrook recently led an all star cast for the Netflix original series, Narcos, where he put on consistently impeccable acting so this might be great news for the next Wolverine blockbuster. On the flip side though, Old Man Logan was so amazing, and this news pretty much confirms it's not going to happen; so, some of us out here are wondering, why Fox, why?



Ah well, Holbrook should make for an interesting villain, right?

The loathing runs very deep here, guys. Just last week, Marvel released this year’s Spider-Gwen Annual, an 'alternate-reality series' that portrays a black female Captain America as a hero. The villain's known by everyone as the Mental Organism Designed as America’s King, or more crisply, “M.O.D.A.A.K.”

M.O.D.A.A.K. wails incessantly about 'foreign filth' and how he wants to squeeze 'n crush America in his allmighty powerful hands...

Readers have already been quick to note the glaring similarities between the comic's villain and Donald Trump himself:

Judging by Latour's Twitter feed, which touts a marked dedication to a hatred targeted at Trump, you've gotta think the talented Marvel artist really was inspired enough out of a passionate hatred to create a villain that exists solely to make fun of Trump.

Vulko was created by Bob Haney and Howard Purcell. Vulko's a talented Atlantean politician who plays an invaluable role as a mentor (also the city's eldest dignitary) to Aquaman. Before Aquaman's reign, Vulko was around for his birth where he fought and argued against the curse of Kordax.

We're not sure just yet how much screen-time Dafoe will be getting, but we do know he's set to appear in the full Atlantean-royal costume.

The second film in the Star Wars Anthology Series will be focused on Boba Fett, according to The Wrap.  The first film, Rogue One, is set to be released in 2016, then this untitled Boba Fett film will follow in 2018.  No plot details have been revealed, but the film just lost its director, Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic Four), who says he's moving on to pursue original creative opportunities.  Rumor has it that Disney pushed him out due to concerns over Trank's behavior during the filming of Fantastic Four.  Either way, Disney is now tasked with finding a new director to helm the film. 

In the extended Star Wars Universe, Boba Fett escapes the Sarlacc pit he was doomed to in Return of the Jedi and carries on with his bounty hunting.  The film could pick up at any point along his timeline and be filled with exciting new adventures.

In a recent long-winded, tell-all blog post the creator of Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin delivered some heavy felt news; we won't have our hands on the 'Winds of Winter' for some time now.

This means Martin's missed another crucial deadline, and perhaps almost worse, season six of the show will now air before it's original source material hits shelves.

Martin explains a bit on what's going on in the following excerpt from his 1800-word long blog post:

Believe me, it gave me no pleasure to type those words. You're disappointed, and you're not alone. My editors and publishers are disappointed, HBO is disappointed, my agents and foreign publishers and translators are disappointed... but no one could possibly be more disappointed than me. For months now I have wanted nothing so much as to be able to say, "I have completed and delivered THE WINDS OF WINTER" on or before the last day of 2015. But the book's not done. Nor is it likely to be finished tomorrow, or next week. Yes, there's a lot written. Hundreds of pages. Dozens of chapters. (Those 'no pages done' reports were insane, the usual garbage internet journalism that I have learned to despise). But there's also a lot still left to write. I am months away still... and that's if the writing goes well. (Sometimes it does. Sometimes it doesn't.) Chapters still to write, of course... but also rewriting. I always do a lot of rewriting, sometimes just polishing, sometimes pretty major restructures.

Let's just keep our fingers crossed the unexpectedly long wait is worth it.
