It Seems Benicio Del Toro Won't Return As 'The Collector' In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol. 2 Benicio Del Toro's character, the Collector,  didn't really get to do very much in either of his Marvel movie appearances (post credits in Thor: The Dark World, and a slightly bigger part in Guardians of the Galaxy), but it did seem that he was being set up to play a more prominent role in the events of the MCU moving forward.

Guillermo del Toro is a busy man. After having helmed the recently-released Crimson Peak, the director wasted little time in starting to line up his follow-up project. He is now in talks to direct a remake of The Fantastic Voyage, a 1966 sci-film about a submarine crew who are shrunk down to microscopic size to travel inside an injured scientist and repair his brain damage (without the benefit of Dennis Quaid). Fans of del Toro’s giant monster movie Pacific Rim will undoubtedly take note of one particular detail about The Fantastic Voyage, though: it is not Pacific Rim 2.

Turns Out ‘Crimson Peak’ Is Actually a Gothic Romance: 15 Movies With Misleading Trailers Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak is a deliciously dark and twisted piece, set in the most gorgeous, most decrepit haunted house you’ve ever seen and anchored by three mesmerizing performances from Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, and most especially Jessica Chastain. It’s also not the horror movie that’s being sold in the trailers, but a Gothic romance. Think Jane Eyre plus ghosts, not The Conjuring plus corsets. That’s not such a bad thing if you happen to love costume dramas, but it can be an unpleasant surprise if you don’t.

Jessica Chastain on Crimson Peak, The Huntsman & More [WARNING: This interview contains SPOILERS for Crimson Peak.] In just a few years’ time, Jessica Chastain has gone from being a relative unknown to an an A-list actress thanks to films like The Tree of Life, The Help, and Zero Dark Thirty. In the past year alone she’s starred in Interstellar, The Martian, and as of this weekend, Crimson Peak, Guillermo del Toro’s cinematic love letter to gothic horror and romantic melodrama. In Peak, Chastain plays Lucille Sharpe, sister to Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston) and an all-around  wonderful pianist.
