What's Popping: Star Wars, 'Justice League,' Spider-Man, Wolverine, and 'The BFG'

Star Wars

The cast for Star Wars: Episode VII has been revealed! John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original cast comprised of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.

We all know Zack Snyder will be directing the Justice League movie because he's the one Warner Bros. has entrusted to spearhead their superhero movies. Well, it's official.

Will the next Spider-Man reboot feature Miles Morales as the web-slinging hero instead of Peter Parker? Not a chance, says producer Avi Arad.

Hugh Jackman's tenure as Wolverine may be coming to an end. Jackman says he's "99.9% sure" that the next solo movie would be his last.

Steven Spielberg has signed on to direct DreamWorks' adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's book The BFG and will shoot the movie sometime next year. So much for him directing Robopocalypse next.
