Justice League

According to a revitalized Nikki Finke, Warner Bros. is going to announce their DC plans at this year's Comic-Con. Describing that plan as ambitious would be an understatement. If true, that is.

Harrison Ford has fractured one of his ankle in a freak accident on the Episode VII set when a door fell on him. Filming will continue while he recuperates, Disney said in a statement.

Sigourney Weaver's character died in the first Avatar, but she'll be back for the sequel. How? Apparently, she is playing a different character, according to James Cameron.

There's a rumor going around that Jason Momoa has been cast as Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He didn't make it as Conan the Barbarian, but could he have found his niche as Aquaman?

Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, the pair who wrote the 2011 comedy hit Bridesmaids, are working together on a new comedy. Besides starring, Wiig is also planning to make her directorial debut with this movie.
