He certainly has the look!

Bodybuilder and four time Mr. Universe Mike O'Hearn has been making headlines for his campaign to play He-Man on the big screen (yes, that's a real movie that's still really happening). He's been hashtagging his Instagram photos with "#HeManTheMovie," leading some to believe he already landed the role, but it turns out he's just getting ready for when the time comes:

I want to thank all the supporters for sending good vibes in hopes I get the role of He-Man. I am working hard everyday so when the opportunity presents itself, I'll be ready.... To be clear, I do not have the role yet. The Internet is flattering but you can't believe everything you see on there. Again thank you for all of your support!


O'Hearn added that he's previously been considered for other blonde beefy roles in Hollywood, including Captain America and Superman. It's not hard to see why.

The ghost of a prequel past is rumored to be haunting Star Wars: VIII and Rogue One.

Take this all with a grain of salt, but apparently Darth Vader himself may be returning to a galaxy far, far away. According to fan site Making Star Wars, a fully functioning Darth Vader helmet and chest piece have been spotted in the props department, and a team of undisclosed professionals are headed to the UK to train Christensen for an appearance in at least one upcoming Star Wars film.

These rumors are pretty flimsy as of now, but it's entirely possible that Christensen could be involved in a flashback scene or a shot of Vader with his helmet off in Rogue One, which takes place between episodes III and IV. There's also a possibility that the film could introduce the dark clone of Anakin Skywalker, but let's not count our midi-chlorians before they hatch.

Would anyone you be excited to see Anakin Skywalker back in Star Wars?

In an interview with Time, Nintendo president Saruto Iwata crushed dreams and dispelled rumors that Netflix is involved with a Legend of Zelda tv show:

In early February, the Wall Street Journal reported that Netflix was developing a live-action series based on Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda franchise. But Mr. Iwata says those rumors are inaccurate.

“As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information,” says Iwata.

The show's existence seemed questionable to begin with, but if you're desperate to keep hope alive, note that Iwata does say the rumors are "inaccurate" and not flat out false.  Maybe there is something in the works, just not with Netflix.  Or maybe Netflix is working on something for Nintendo, just not a Zelda series.  Or maybe nothing is happening at all.  There's that possibility too.

Let's be real, this rumor from The Daily Star probably has exactly zero truth to it, so for now let's say there's a slight chance we could be welcoming Queen Bey to the Avengers.  

Apparently, Beyoncé moved from New York to LA earlier this year in order to reboot her acting career, and the MCU might be just the place for her to get her feet wet.  An unnamed executive at Disney was quoted as saying "we would love to have Beyoncé on board, almost certainly as a newcomer to the screen from Marvel’s existing catalogue of comic book characters."  The characters she's rumored to be in the running for are Boom-Boom, Blink, Tigra, or Hawkeye.



As hot of a Tigra Beyoncé would be, these are all pretty ridiculous options.  If she were to join the MCU, who would you want Beyoncé to play?  One of these ladies?  Someone else?

Clara Oswald (Coleman) has been The Doctor's companion since 2013, when Amy Pond and Rory Williams were trapped in the past by Weeping Angels. The Coal Hill School teacher has been through an Anniversary Special, a regeneration, and has surpassed all but Amy Pond as the longest serving companion of New Who, but it looks like that may end soon.

New rumors are suggesting that Jenna Coleman will be leaving the series sometime after Christmas to star in an ITV series portraying the early years of Queen Victoria's reign in England. The BBC has yet to comment on these new allegations.

Similar rumors were circling toward the end of Who's eighth season, but the actress returned for this year's season nine. If she does leave, I'm sure Clara would only want The Doctor to do one thing:



And remember her.
