Jordan Peele might be remaking Candyman. Now THIS is a remake I can get behind. – Bloody Disgusting
The Ritual of Chud is going down in IT: Chapter 2 film and I feel a little nauseous. –Geek Tyrant
His Dark Materials has already been greenlit for S2 and it hasn’t even premiered yet. Bodes well for one of the best children’s book series ever written. –Geek Girl Authority
And now we know why, because HBO has signed on to co-produce His Dark Materials. So we will all be watching it on HBO. –Vulture
Netflix releases a trailer for She-Ra:
Kit Harrington has revealed that he is in the running to play Batman. –BatmanNews.com
Joshua Jackson as Captain Kirk? Why isn’t this a thing already? Here’s a really great argument for this casting choice. –Comic Book Resource
American Gods S2 is supposedly in shambles and it’s disheartening. –Variety
Check out this creepy trailer for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina:

And speaking of actors on Mad Men, apparently Jon Hamm would play Batman if asked. Bless his heart. –Geek Tyrant
Aaron Paul joins S3 of Westworld. -io9
Henry Cavill is out as Superman. Huh. –Screenrant
But then this happened:
WB’s statement regarding the story of Cavill being out as Superman: “While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.” Not really a denial is it?

Wait. What the hell is going on now?

And now I’m done caring. Poor DC. Always a bridesmaid, never the bride.
And a tweet to end the week:
Possible Superman replacements:
– Nic Cage
– Idris Elba
– Wonder Woman
– the guy who punched Richard Spencer
– Maxine Waters
– the lady who gave Trump’s motorcade the finger
