Robots Root – The Batgirl We Need 30 Mar 2017
Welcome to today’s edition of Robot’s Root, your 3,333rd source for standard nerd news of the moment!
Up top, in a surprise announcement via Variety, Joss Whedon is set to write and direct a Batgirl solo film. The deal isn’t done, but still, that we hadn’t heard anything about it until now is pretty impressive as far as Hollywood scuttlebutt goes.
Meanwhile, in space… this:
– I previously expressed some concern that the third prequel in the Planet of the Apes series looked bland compared to the first two… this trailer gives me more to chew on. I’m fascinated by Bad Ape and a few of the others. New trailer released today…
– Ladies and Gentlemen: Australian Sharknado!
– Interesting read on the new MST3000 relaunch, starring a few familiar faces…
– Santa Clarita Season 2? CHECK!
– Here’s some largely unsubstantiated talk about Jordan Peele being courted for Akira, now. I mean hey, could happen.
– Welp, supposedly Brad Pitt was close to Cable for Deadpool 2, as evidenced by solid concept art and a quick takedown notice. But now Leitch said schedule issues pushed him out. However, Michael Shannon recently noted he wasn’t interested. Hm.
– Silicon Valley in one month YAASSSSSSSSS!
