With production set to begin soon on Marvel's Doctor Strange, the cast is starting to come together. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Michael Stuhlbarg is in talks to join the cast in an unspecified role, which another report from Variety claims is Nicodemus West, a scientific rival of Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Both reports reveal that principal photography will begin this December in London. In the Marvel Comics, Dr. Nicodemus West was the surgeon who operated on neurosurgeon Stephen Strange's hands after a horrific car accident. While the doctor was able to save Strange's hands, he was left with significant nerve damage and was unable to perform surgery again. Burdened with guilt over this ordeal, West followed Strange to Kamar-Taj, but he arrived just days after Strange had completed his mystical training with the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton).

We got our first real look at Kristen Wiig as Cheetah in the just released Wonder Woman 1984 trailer. Since her announcement, comedic actress Kristen Wiig has always seemed like a surprising choice to play the role of villain. Known mostly for her time spent on Saturday Night Live and comedies such as MacGruber, Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters, her ability to play a fighting comic book bad guy has been completely untested. Well, here is director Patty Jenkins to explain why she cast Wiig, and why we should be excited to see the results when Wonder Woman 1984 is released in theaters this summer. "We were super fans of Kristen, and we love how funny she is, but also I've been a huge admirer of what a great actress she is for a long time. So when we needed someone to go all the way from one end of the spectrum of being funny, sweet Diana's friend, all the way to a totally different place, we knew that Kristen Wiig would kill it, and she went beyond our wildest dreams." It all sounds very … [Read more...] about Wonder Woman 1984 Director Explains Why Kristen Wiig Was Cast as Cheetah
After much speculation, it has been confirmed that Furious 7 director James Wan will direct Jason Momoa in the standalone Aquaman movie for Warner Bros. and DC. The move brings James Wan back to Warner Bros., where he made the hit horror movie The Conjuring. He is currently working on the sequel to that film, The Conjuring 2, for sister studio New Line. James Wan's impressive track record solidified Warner Bros. and DC's decisions to bring on the director to help further extend and create their DC Cinematic Universe, with Furious 7 grossing $349 million in the states and $1.5 billion worldwide to become the second highest grossing movie of 2015 behind Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Last year, the internet became aware that Sebastian Stan, who plays The Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, looks a hell of a lot like a young Mark Hamill.
