Bautista Clears Up Guardians 3 Misunderstanding Regarding James Gunn
Dave Bautista is now clarifying statements he made back when Disney fired James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Bautista was very vocal about his distaste for Disney after they let Gunn go over some old tweets that featured some tasteless and disgusting jokes. Since then, the studio has brought the director back on board to helm the final installment in the franchise. But for a while, it looked like Disney was not going to change their minds over the situation, sending Gunn off to rebuild his career.

Back when Disney first made their decision to let James Gunn go, Dave Bautista went as far as to publicly ask to be removed from his contract unless the studio brought the director back for Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Gunn moved on to work with DC for The Suicide Squad and many assumed Bautista was going to join him. The

Aquaman Star Jason Momoa Wants To Be The Next Wolverine

In the wake of the Disney/Fox deal, Marvel fans have offered an abundance of suggestions on who the next Wolverine might be, from Keanu Reeves to Tom Hardy. And thanks to some recent comments from Jason Momoa of Aquaman fame, it seems that the internet now has one more name to bring into the conversation.

Having starred last year in the Dceu’s biggest hit to date, Momoa is hardly starved for work in the field of superhero cinema. All the same, at this weekend’s Celebrity Fan Fest, the actor reportedly mentioned that if he were to play any role in the McU, it would be Wolverine. And while it sounds like Momoa’s remark was purely hypothetical, his statement will no doubt inspire yet another wave of debate and fan art around the character that Hugh Jackman made his own for seventeen years.

WarnerMedia taps Denis Villeneuve for Dune: The Sisterhood TV series

Ahead of the release of Denis Villeneuve’s (Blade Runner 2049) upcoming Dune adaptation, Warner Media has greenlit a spinoff series for their streaming platform.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will be produced by Dune cowriter Jon Spaihts along with Brian Herbert and focus on an enigmatic order of women called the Bene Gesserit with the ability to control every aspect of their own bodies, as well compel others to obey them. While the order seems monastic in structure (they follow a leader called The Reverend Mother Superior), the group is also deeply involved in the plotting and politics of the wider Dune ecosystem.

According to Villeneuve, the Bene Gesserit was a facet of the Dune story that held a particular interest for him: “The Bene Gesserit have always been fascinating to me. Focusing on a series around that powerful order of women seemed not only relevant and
