Some exciting rumors have, both fortunately and unfortunately (deciding on which side of the bed you lie), been squished today – beginning with a rumor suggesting “Star Wars : The Last Jedi’ director Rian Johnson has abandoned plans to make a new “Star Wars” trilogy.

 

The fine folks at SuperBroMovies had heard that Johnson might be off his “Star Wars” trilogy – but not so, it seems. The filmmkaker took to Twitter to clear up the rumors : “No it isn’t true, I’m still working on the trilogy,” Johnson wrote. “With all due respect to the movie bros, who I’m sure are lovely kind bros with good fraternal intentions.”

It was announced in 1997, shortly before the release of Johnson’s “Last Jedi” that the filmmaker would stay put with Disney and develop a new series of “Star Wars” movies – the plot of those unknown.

 

Meantime, the oft-reliable UK scooper ‘Mr H’ says yesterday’s news of an “Alien” TV show or happening is old – well, it ceased to be the moment Disney purchased Fox.

Here’s ‘Mr H’ :

 

Contrary to a rumor yesterday that Henry Cavill has actually filmed a cameo for “Shazam”, reprising his Man of Steel guise, we’re back to report that while a Superman of some suit might cameo in the movie it likely won’t be Cavill wearing the cape.

According to Forbes, it was the negotiations between Warner Bros and Cavill to do the cameo that was the straw that broke the camel’s back, ultimately resulting in the two sides seemingly going their own ways now.

The pic, starring Jim Carrey, is now moving from its November 8 release to February 14, 2020 next year so the blue guy looks better for y’all.

Rocky 7!?

Sylvester Stallone says he has a “great idea” for another “Rocky” film

While we’ll unlikely see Creed belting his glove again, Sylvester Stallone says Rocky Balboa isn’t out.

The actor  made the revelation today at the Cannes film festival, where his long career and latest ‘Rambo’ film are under the Croisette’s spotlight.

While ‘Sly’ hints that his participation in the “Creed” franchise might be two and out, the 72-year-old says a seventh “Rocky” film could be on the cards.

“I have a great idea for Rocky. He finds this fella who’s in the country illegally and it becomes a whole thing. It would be really phenomenal, really different”.

“It’s like a magician,” he continued. “Once you’ve seen how he does the tricks you’re not impressed any more. It’s the same thing with Rocky. You’ve seen everything, so you’re like, ‘How can it be different?’ That would be different. When you take him and throw him out of the country and he’s in another world. It could work.” he said.

Stallone didn’t say whether it’d be Balboa, who we last saw in 2018’s “Creed II”, training the immigrant.

The actor had intended for 2006’s “Rocky Balboa” to be the character’s swansong but returned to the role when the idea for the “Creed” films were presented to him.

Stallone was at Cannes to attend a a 4K restoration screening of his groundbreaking actioner “First Blood” and promote its fourth sequel “Last Blood”, which sees the long-suffering vet going up against cartels in Mexico.

“He goes out there and bad things happen,” Stallone said. “There’s going to be some serious vengeance in this movie. A lot of people are going to get killed.”
