Ghostbusters 2020: Release Date, Story, Returning Cast & Updates

The Ghostbusters franchise will continue with Ghostbusters 2020, and there’s already so much we know about the film. So far, the movie franchise includes 1984’s Ghostbusters, 1989’s Ghostbusters II, and the 2016 female-led Ghostbusters reboot.

The series kicked off in the early 1980s by following the fictional Ghostbusters team – parapsychologists Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Dr. Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), Dr. Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis), and their friend Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) – on their various adventures as a ghost removal service. The sci-fi comedy concept was such a hit with audiences that it spawned a sequel and a reboot and has gone on to be the subjects of animated TV shows, comics, toys, apparel, and more. Given how beloved Ghostbusters is, it’s no wonder a new Ghostbusters film is on the way.

With production already underway and a release date set, it’s officially time to get excited about the next Ghostbusters film. Here’s everything we know so far, from the cast to the director, to which original cast members will return.

Ghostbusters 2020 has its sights set on becoming a huge summer hit. The forthcoming Ghostbusters film is set for release on July 10, 2020. This means the film will be released at the height of the summer moviegoing season and will be competing against films like Ryan Reynolds’ Free GuyTop Gun: MaverickWonder Woman 1984, and Artemis Fowl. From there, it will come up against films like Christopher Nolan’s TenetJungle Cruise, and Morbius through the rest of the month.

Jason Reitman will direct Ghostbusters 2020Reitman’s career has taken off as a director over the last decade or so. His feature-length film debut was 2005’s Thank You For Smoking, starring Aaron Eckhart. He then moved on to the acclaimed Juno written by Diablo Cody and starring Ellen Page, Up in the Air with George Clooney, Young Adult with Charlize Theron, Labor Day, and most recently, the Hugh Jackman political drama The Front Runner.

Reitman is an established director, but he is also the son of Ivan Reitman. Fans of the first two Ghostbuster films know Ivan directed them. It’s possible Ivan is in an advisory role while Ghostbusters 2020 films because he appeared in an on-set photo with the movie’s stars: Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, and McKenna Grace, posted by Reitman on Twitter.

The Ghostbusters 2020 cast has arguably been the most exciting aspect of the film’s development. When news of Reitman’s Ghostbusters film first broke in early 2019, it was reported it would center around four young teens. Over time, the two young leads became The Haunting of Hill House‘s McKenna Grace and Stranger Things‘ Finn Wolfhard, who will play siblings. The Leftovers actress Carrie Coon will play their mom. Paul Rudd is also starring in Ghostbusters 2020, and he made the announcement with a video of him standing in front of the Ghostbusters HQ in New York. Furthermore, relative newcomers Logan Kim and 20-year-old Celeste O’Connor joined the cast in supporting roles. While details on their characters weren’t revealed, it can be presumed that they’re playing the other two kids.

There have also been a lot of questions regarding whether any of the original Ghostbusters cast (Aykroyd, Murray, Hudson, Weaver, Annie Potts, and Rick Moranis) would make an appearance. Since Ghostbusters 2020 was announced, various cast members have been hinting at their potential involvement. Potts has teased the return of Janine around the time filming began. Weaver also confirmed in early June she, Murray, and Aykroyd would be shooting scenes for the film. It’s unclear how involved the original cast members will be in Ghostbusters 2020, but it may not matter as much. Seeing the original gang back together will undoubtedly be a huge selling point for the film going forward.

While there will certainly be ghosts, comedy, and all manner of hijinks in Ghostbusters 2020, there is currently no clear indication of what the core story will be about. An official Ghostbusters 2020 synopsis has yet to release, but based on the actors involved and the set photos that have appeared online, it seems like it will be a family story set outside of the confines of New York City. Perhaps more concrete details on Ghostbusters 2020‘s story will release once production comes to an end.

Reitman has confirmed Ghostbusters 2020 film is a direct sequel to Ghostbusters II and won’t reference any of the events from the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot. At a Ghostbusters fan event, Reitman said he “wanted to make a love letter to the original movie” with his Ghostbusters film. Because of the likelihood of the original Ghostbusters (with the exception of Ramis, who passed away in 2014) returning in some capacity, the Ghostbusters 2020 might not only be a love letter but a bridging of the generational divide between the senior Ghostbusters team and the Gen Z team. Plus, it will turn the film into a symbolic passing of the torch, too.

There has been some prickliness between the 2016 cast and director Paul Feig and Reitman during the film’s pre-production. Feig and Leslie Jones, in particular, voiced their disappointment with the sequel insofar as it seemed to exclude their film from the Ghostbusters canon. Reitman indirectly responded to the comments, tweeting in February: “I have nothing but admiration for Paul and Leslie and Kate and Melissa and Kristen and the bravery with which they made Ghostbusters 2016. They expanded the universe and made an amazing movie!” Feig has expressed interest in a sequel to the Ghostbusters reboot, but it’s unclear if that will materialize.

Reitman released a teaser trailer in January 2019 featuring iconic Ghostbusters mobile the Ecto-1. In this Ghostbusters 2020 teaser, the camera pans in on something under a tarp in what looks like a barn or warehouse. A wind blows the tarp up to reveal the Ecto-1 and the Ghostbusters logo. The footage was specifically shot for the teaser and most likely won’t be featured in any future trailers or in the film itself. Filming on Ghostbusters 2020 began in June in Calgary. If the film doesn’t experience any production hiccups and follows a traditional timeline, it’s possible the first trailer will arrive in late 2019 or early 2020. This will allow enough time to build excitement for the Ghostbusters 2020‘s summer release and build its marketing campaign for added visibility.

James Holzhauer Returning to Jeopardy! for Tournament of Champions

James Holzhauer is set to return to Jeopardy! for the Tournament of Champions. Legendary and perdurable Jeopardy!, consisting of host Alex Trebek and blue box panels, has sported a fair share of champions over the years. Former contestant Holzhauer took Jeopardy! by a storm with his dominating gameplay and snagged 32 consecutive wins – putting him on track to surpass Jeopardy!’s all-time champion, Ken Jennings.

Earlier this year, Trebek revealed in a somber message that he’d been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Trebek’s announcement coincided with the game-changing antics of Holzhauer, and viewers of Jeopardy! became enthralled by Holzhauer’s winning streak and Trebek’s hosting performances. In April, Holzhauer became the second person ever to surpass $1 million in non-tournament play. He attributed his vast array of knowledge to children’s literature – claiming those books were easier to mentally digest than adult reference books. However, Holzhauer’s time on Jeopardy! came to an end when he lost a game to librarian Emma Boettcher, albeit with the correct answer. Ultimately, Holzhauer walked away with $2,462,216 in earnings, and a steadfast reputation on America’s favorite game show. Now, the Jeopardy! podiums will feature Holzhauer behind them once again.

According to EW, Holzhauer has a guaranteed spot on the upcoming Tournament of Champions. The special-edition of Jeopardy! has also added Boettcher to the slate, setting up the two former champions to potentially face-off for a second time. Vying for a grand prize of $250,000, the 15 players are compiled from contestants who won the most games since the previous tournament. The game will also feature winners from the College Championship and Teacher’s Tournament. Holzhauer is the most recognized contestant, and tops the list with 32 games under his belt – the second highest is Josh Hill with 7 games. The ten-day event is set to air in syndication from November 4 to 15.

Trebek has since revealed that his cancer is nearing remission. Despite speculation of Jeopardy! seeking out a replacement host, Trebek is still under contract with the show for the next three years. Trebek and Holzhauer appear to have formed a unique bond from their time together on the show. Recently, Holzhauer donated a portion of his game show earnings to battle cancer in Trebek’s name. A seemingly odd amount, the $1109.14 donated is attributed to Holzhauer’s daughter’s birthday – November 9, 2014. Since the Tournament is set to air during that time, perhaps an honorable mention will be given to the date if Holzhauer is still competing.

Trebek’s battle with cancer and Holzhauer’s winning streak made season 35 of the seemingly docile game show a hot commodity. Fans are eager to see Holzhauer compete against Boettcher, however, the tournament would generate more buzz if Jennings were attached – especially after his comments regarding Holzhauer’s streak. Nevertheless, Holzhauer returning to the platform will provide a new level of excitement and entertainment for Jeopardy! – and further boost talk of Holzhauer replacing Trebek as host.

Every Returning Character In Avengers: Endgame

WARNING: Major spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.

Marvel Studios closed out their 22 film story in style with Avengers: Endgame and brought together one of the biggest casts ever put to screen to do so. The Endgame cast is even larger than the one that was made for Avengers: Infinity War and finally delivered on the every character scene that was hyped since last year.

For much of Avengers: Endgame, the main cast is reduced as much as possible. This is really the story of the original six Avengers and their latest, and some cases last, attempt to save the universe. In order to do this, it requires the remaining heroes to travel through time to try and bring back those who were snapped before by Thanos. This plot structure allows for many past MCU characters to return in Avengers: Endgame, as well as the snap victims to be brought back before everything is said and done.

The end result is a film that features almost too many characters to count. Luckily we’ve compiled a complete list of all the Avengers: Endgame characters. Whether they were alive from the start, returned at the end, or made brief appearances during time travel scenes, here’s everyone who appears in Avengers: Endgame.

Avengers In Endgame Who Survived The Snap

The Avengers’ ranks were depleted thanks to the Sokovia Accords, but the amount of people who have been true Avengers has never been that large. The original six Avengers were all noticeably still alive at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, with few additional survivors.

  • Robert Downey Jr. – Tony Stark/Iron Man: The first MCU hero to ever grace the screen makes his tenth, and ultimately final, appearance here. He helps find the solution to time travel and goes to the past to steal the Space Stone. Even though it is the snapping of his fingers that defeats Thanos, he pays the ultimate price to fix the universe.
  • Chris Evans – Steve Rogers/Captain America: The oldest MCU hero returns and remains integral to the story all the way through. He is responsible for getting the Mind Stone in the past, and proved his worthiness to wield Mjolnir as he attempted to hold off Thanos. Once they were victorious, he goes back to the past to return the Infinity Stones, but stays there to grow old with Peggy Carter.
  • Chris Hemsworth – Thor: The God of Thunder is an overweight drunk who must find the strength to face Thanos one more time. He’s tasked with getting the Reality Stone and eventually gets his rematch with the Mad Titan. He is not the one to ultimately save the universe, but accepts this, deciding to leave Asgard behind to join the Guardians of the Galaxy.
  • Scarlett Johansson – Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow: She’s had red on her ledger as long as she’s been part of the MCU, and Natasha finally gets the chance to wipe it clean here. Nat makes the sacrifice play on Vormir to give the Avengers the Soul Stone, giving the Barton family a shot at a reunion.
  • Jeremy Renner – Clint Barton/Hawkeye: The sharpshooter is back after sitting out Avengers: Infinity War, but the latest MCU film doesn’t waste time showing he also suffered losses from the snap. Clint takes on the Ronin guise for the purposes of this movie, and even has to protect the Infinity Stones in the final battle. He does survive the fight and gets an emotional reunion with his resurrected family.
  • Mark Ruffalo – Bruce Banner/Hulk: After the complications Bruce and Hulk experienced in the past, the perfect medium has been found in Professor Hulk. He helps figure out time travel and has to get his hands on the Time Stone. He later volunteers to put on the Iron Man made gauntlet to bring back those who were lost in the snap. He’s successful in doing so, but the snap causes severe – and potentially permanent – damage to his right arm.
  • Don Cheadle – James Rhodes/War Machine: Rhodey is always surprised and somewhat confused by what he doesn’t understand (see Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron), and time travel is the latest example of that. He does come around to the idea and needs to steal the Power Stone from Morag. Ultimately reverting to a new look Iron Patriot armor, Rhodey is left mourning the loss of his best friend.

Other Avengers: Endgame Characters Who Survived The Snap

Beyond official Avengers members, Avengers: Endgame brings back many other MCU characters who survived the snap. Some of them have been working with the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes since the incident occurred, while others have not been seen or heard from in this universe for some time. Here are all the pre-existing MCU characters who survived the snap and returned for Avengers: Endgame.

  • Josh Brolin – Thanos: The Mad Titan is surprisingly killed off in the first 20 minutes of the film after already destroying the Infinity Stones, but his role grows thanks to time travel. The 2014 version of Thanos returns and attempts to protect his future self’s plan. He is ultimately defeated as well, as his own confidence in taking down Tony Stark allows the human to get the Infinity Stones back, resulting in Thanos and his entire army being dusted.
  • Paul Rudd – Scott Lang/Ant-Man: Thanks to a curious rat, Scott is able to escape the Quantum Realm five years after he entered, but it was only five hours for him. He devises the time travel solution to the Avengers’ biggest problem and becomes the guinea pig to work out all of the kinks. It is partially his responsibility to get the Space Stone, and then helps save Hulk, Rocket, and War Machine from drowning when Thanos attacks Avengers HQ.
  • Karen Gillan – Nebula: The daughter of Thanos is able to tell the Avengers what his location is at the onset, but continues to work the Avengers after the snap is not able to be reversed initially. She then has to find the Power Stone, but her memory network betrays her and the entire team. It alerts the past version of Thanos of what they are doing, bringing upon the ultimate destruction, but she kills her past self to help fix this and takes her place as an official member of the Guardians of the Galaxy at the end.
  • Bradley Cooper (voice)/Sean Gunn (motion capture) – Rocket Raccoon: The sweet rabbit is the last true member of the Guardians and once again has to be the captain to get Thor back in the game. Rocket gets the Reality Stone from Asgard in 2013 and takes part in the final fight that ends in their victory. He then recruits Thor to the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the team begins to search for a new mission.
  • Brie Larson – Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel: She joins the team shortly after the snap occurs, but she also leaves them almost just as quickly. After she saves Tony and Nebula and once Thanos is killed in the present day, Carol leaves Earth to go back to patrolling the galaxy. She only returns at the very end to help swing the balance of power in favor of the heroes.
  • Tessa Thompson – Valkyrie: Her absence from Avengers: Infinity War was highly recognized by viewers, but the Thor: Ragnarok breakout makes her return now. She’s living in New Asgard and joins the final fight with the return of her pegasus. After helping save the day, she is crowned the Queen of New Asgard.
  • Gwyneth Paltrow – Pepper Potts: The wife to Tony Stark, Pepper is happy to finally have a regular life with the billionaire after he steps away from the superhero game. She finally gets the chance to suit up properly in the Rescue suit and take part in the final fight at Avengers HQ, where she has to say goodbye to her love.
  • Benedict Wong – Wong: After quickly removing himself from the events of Avengers: Infinity War, Wong waits until the end to return. He helps teleport the Avengers’ own army to Avengers HQ to fight Thanos, with their spells helping protect them from the firepower raining down on the war zone.
  • Danai Gurira – Okoye: The head of the Dora Milaje remains in contact with the Avengers following the snap, but doesn’t get too involved in what they are doing. Okoye does make her grand return to combat with the rest of Wakanda at the very end to fight Thanos’ army.
  • Winston Duke – M’Baku: The Black Panther scene stealer and ruler of the Jabari tribe only returns for the final battle at Avengers HQ, where he’s shown running into the heat of combat.
  • Taika Waititi – Korg: The warrior days of the wise-cracking Kronan are behind him at the start, as he is busy playing video games, but Korg does get involved with the battle at Avengers HQ.
  • Jon Favreau – Happy Hogan: Tony’s former security guard is only briefly featured here, present for his longtime friend’s funeral.
  • Ty Simpkins – Harley Keener: Last seen in Iron Man 3, the Chattanooga native makes his long-awaited return, just not under the best circumstances. The special connection he shared with Tony Stark was enough to see him attend his funeral.
  • William Hurt – Thaddeus Ross: He’s been a longtime adversary to the Avengers, and despite their sometimes contentious relationship, Ross is shown attending Tony’s funeral.
  • Emma Fuhrmann – Cassie Lang: After the five-year time jump, an older Cassie is shocked to see her father after all these years. There’s no signs that she’s become a hero of her own during this time, but they are reunited for possible future adventures.
  • Miek: The insectoid creature is still alive after a brief scare at the end of Thor: Ragnarok and is largely relegated to eating pizza in New Asgard in his small appearance here.
  • Angela Bassett – Ramonda: The mother of T’Challa and Shuri previously stated that she survived the snap and returns here reunited with her children as they overlook Wakanda.
  • Marisa Tomei – May Parker: Confirmed to have survived the snap by the Russo brothers, Peter Parker’s aunt returns to attend Tony Stark’s funeral with her nephew.

Characters Brought Back In Avengers: Endgame

The snap wiped out half of all life across the universe, but that’s reversed in Avengers: Endgame, meaning that everybody who turned to dust in the last movie is back for the final fight against Thanos.

  • Tom Holland – Peter Parker/Spider-Man: The friendly neighborhood hero returns after being snapped on Titan, making his grand entrance during the battle at Avengers HQ. He has to say goodbye to his mentor Tony Stark and then attend his funeral, before going back to school and trying to move on.
  • Benedict Cumberbatch – Stephen Strange/Doctor Strange: He sacrificed the Time Stone knowing he would be snapped on Titan for the chance that the only path to victory out of 14,000,605 scenarios came to fruition. Strange helped teleport an entire army to Avengers HQ so the final fight could occur, and got to see first hand how Thanos was defeated. He then attended the funeral (he knew was coming) for Tony Stark.
  • Chadwick Boseman – T’Challa/Black Panther: The recent star of the MCU was surprisingly snapped in Wakanda but returns here to lead the Wakandan army during the battle that ensues at Avengers HQ. He then heads back to Wakanda to watch over his country with his family.
  • Anthony Mackie – Sam Wilson/Falcon: Snapped after the Battle of Wakanda, Falcon returns for the final fight at Avengers HQ. He survives the battle and attends Tony’s funeral. Then, after Steve Rogers doesn’t return from his time travel mission, he sees an aged Steve sitting on a nearby bench, who offers him the Captain America title and shield to carry on the legacy.
  • Sebastian Stan – Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier/White Wolf: The first victim of Thanos’ snap shown, Bucky returns to fight at Avengers HQ. He isn’t who Steve chooses to carry on the mantle, but he doesn’t appear to be upset in the slightest with this decision.
  • Chris Pratt – Peter Quill/Star-Lord: His blunder on Titan was partially responsible for the snap happening at all, but he returns here to fight at Avengers HQ. He encounters the past version of Gamora and begins searching for the version he knows after attending Tony Stark’s funeral. We last see him aboard the Benatar with the Guardians of the Galaxy searching for a new adventure.
  • Evangeline Lilly – Hope van Dyne/Wasp: She disappeared at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp, but Hope returns to join the fight at Avengers HQ in support. After the superhero adventure, we last see her spending a night relaxing with Scott and Cassie.
  • Vin Diesel (voice)/Terry Notary (motion capture) – Teen Groot: The anthropomorphic tree-like creature was snapped in Wakanda and now returns to fight at Avengers HQ. He’s protected by Rocket and attends Tony Stark’s funeral, before he rejoins the Guardians of the Galaxy aboard the Benatar to go on a new adventure.
  • Dave Bautista – Drax the Destroyer: He was snapped on Titan after failing to stop Thanos and returns now to join the battle at Avengers HQ. He attends Tony Stark’s funeral before heading off on a new adventure with the Guardians of the Galaxy.
  • Pom Klementieff – Mantis: An addition to the Guardians of the Galaxy in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, she was snapped on Titan and reappears at Avengers HQ. She attends Tony Stark’s funeral and then boards the Benatar with the rest of the Guardians.
  • Letitia Wright – Shuri: The Black Panther break out was snapped off-screen in Wakanda and makes her return during the battle at Avengers HQ. She then heads back to Wakanda to be reunited further with her family.
  • Michael Douglas – Hank Pym: Snapped at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Hank returns at Tony’s funeral, but this isn’t all. He briefly is shown during a time travel sequence in 1970, where the young S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist is still perfecting his shrinking tech.
  • Samuel L. Jackson – Nick Fury: The man who started the Avengers Initiative and was snapped at the end of Avengers: Infinity War makes a quick return to attend Tony Stark’s funeral, remembering his first recruit.
  • Michelle Pfeiffer – Janet van Dyne: Snapped at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Janet only returns to attend Tony Stark’s funeral at the very end.
  • Linda Cardellini – Laura Barton: Laura is snapped right at the beginning of Avengers: Endgame, and it takes all the way until the very end for her and the three Barton kids to be reunited with Clint.
  • Cobie Smulders – Maria Hill: A recurring character throughout the MCU makes another return after being brought back from the snap to attend Tony Stark’s funeral.
  • Jacob Batalon – Ned Leeds: Peter Parker’s best friend from Spider-Man: Homecoming returns to have a reunion with Peter at school. His fate in the snap was never confirmed, but his lack of aging should point to him being a snap victim too.

Avengers: Endgame Characters Who Return Via Time Travel

On the other side of this coin, Avengers: Endgame also brought back many characters through time travel. The film revisits five main times and locations – Camp Lehigh/1970, The Battle of New York/2012, Asgard/2013, Vormir/2014, and Morag/2014 – and each is used to bring back a familiar face or two. Here are all the characters who returned in Avengers: Endgame thanks to time travel.

  • Zoe Saldana – Gamora: The Guardians of the Galaxy star died in Avengers: Infinity War but returns here with the 2014 version of her, showing how she helped conquer planets and civilizations for Thanos. She makes it to the present day and her fate is unclear, as she could be among the latest batch of snap victims from Tony or be living a brand new life.
  • Tilda Swinton – The Ancient One: Doctor Strange’s mentor is shown fighting off Chitauri on top of the Sanctum Sanctorum during The Battle of New York from The Avengers. She encounters Professor Hulk during this time and, after initially saying no, gives him the Time Stone once he mentions Strange gave it up in the future.
  • Hayley Atwell – Peggy CarterCaptain America: The First Avenger‘s romantic lead and future founder of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns briefly during a scene in 1970 with Steve Rogers. She doesn’t see him during this scene, but the two are fully reunited during the end when Steve decides to stay in the past to grow old with her.
  • Tom Hiddleston – Loki: The trickster is shown briefly in captivity during Thor: The Dark World, but also is part of them revisiting the aftermath of The Battle of New York from The Avengers. He gets his hands on the Tesseract and teleports away, leaving his fate potentially up in the air.
  • Ross Marquand – Red Skull: The former head of Hydra returns in his new form on Vormir and guides Black Widow and Hawkeye through the process of getting the Soul Stone.
  • John Slattery – Howard Stark: Tony Stark’s distant father returns in a 1970 scene and sees him meet his fully grown son, although he doesn’t know it.

  • Tom Vaughn-Lawlor – Ebony Maw: The intellectual Child of Thanos was killed by Iron Man and Spider-Man’s plan in Avengers: Infinity War, but returns in 2014 to help figure out Nebula’s memory network and then joins the fight at Avengers HQ.
  • Carrie Coon (voice)/Monique Ganderton (motion capture) – Proxima Midnight: A Child of Thanos who first appeared in Avengers: Infinity War and died at the hands of Scarlet Witch returns here in her 2014 form to fight with Thanos’ army at Avengers HQ.

  • James D’Arcy – Jarvis: The longtime Stark butler, friend of Peggy Carter in Agent Carter, and inspiration for Tony’s A.I. of the same name returns during a 1970 scene with Tony and Howard Stark.
  • Maximiliano Hernandez – Jasper Sitwell: A supporting character throughout MCU Phase 1 was secretly working with Hydra and returns in an elevator during The Battle of New York from The Avengers.

New Characters In Avengers: Endgame

With so many familiar faces returning, Avengers: Endgame is short on new additions to the MCU. There are a few fun Community cameos that are included, but here are the few new characters that you need to know about.

  • Hiroyuki Sanada – Akihiko: The villain of The Wolverine, Sanada makes his MCU debut with a small role as a member of the Yakuza in Tokyo. He is hunted down and killed by Barton.
  • Morgan Stark: The daughter of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts was born after the snap. She spends most of her time in the film with Tony, but will now have to spend the rest of her life without him.

And there you have it, that is every character who appears in Avengers: Endgame. The cast is incredibly large, but so is everything – from the runtime to likely box office opening – about this film.

Original Batman Movie Series Returning to Theaters for DC 80th Anniversary

The original Batman movie quadrilogy – Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, and Batman & Robin – are returning to theaters for a big anniversary. 2019 marks the 80th anniversary of Batman’s debut in the pages of DC Comics, and it’s a momentous occasion indeed. Gotham’s protector is one of – if not the – most popular superheroes in the world, and while it’s been awhile since he’s really gotten his due on the big screen, The Caped Crusader certainly sports a colorful theatrical history.

Batman’s film debut came in 1966, in an unabashedly campy but still quite fun TV show spinoff of the classic Batman series starring Adam West as the titular hero and Burt Ward as Robin. Bruce Wayne’s alter ego wouldn’t return to theaters until 1989’s Batman, directed by Tim Burton, featuring Michael Keaton’s Bats squaring off against Jack Nicholson’s Joker. Keaton and Burton would come back for 1992’s Batman Returns, which added Danny DeVito’s Penguin and Michelle Pfieffer’s Catwoman to the mix. Unfortunately, Joel Schumacher’s 1995 Batman Forever and 1997 Batman & Robin were seen as big drops in quality by most.

In the decades since, Batman was resurrected via Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, and returned most recently via Batfleck’s involvement in the DCEU. He’ll soon be revitalized yet again for Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Next month, Fathom Events will give Bat-fans the chance to revisit the four 1980s and 1990s Batman films in theaters, likely representing the first chance many have ever had to see them on the big screen.

Batman (1989) will screen on Saturday, May 4 at more than 600 theaters in the US, at 1pm and 4pm local time. Batman Returns screens on Monday, May 6 at 4pm and 7pm, while Batman Forever shows on Sunday, May 12 at 1pm and 4pm. Finally, Batman & Robin graces theater screens on Tuesday, May 14 on 4pm and 7pm. Tickets are on sale now at Fathom Events’ website. While the prospect of people going to see the Schumacher films might seem odd, it’s important to remember that both have developed a cult fanbase in recent years due to their sheer silliness.

With Batman celebrating his 80th birthday this year, and no new Batman movies arriving until 2021, re-releasing these old school DC films to theaters offers dedicated fans an opportunity to celebrate Bruce Wayne’s anniversary in theaters. No disrespect intended to Ben Affleck’s portrayal, but here’s hoping that Reeves’ The Batman represents a proper Hollywood resurgence for The Dark Knight, in what will be his first big screen solo outing since 2012. In the meantime, fans can head to theaters and chill with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s quipping Mr. Freeze.

Game Of Thrones Season 8: Returning Cast & New Character Guide

Game of Thrones is back for its eighth and final season, so we’ve put together a guide to the massive cast of characters who will be returning, as well as the latest new additions.

After seven seasons, an impressive number of major characters have been killed off, but there are still dozens left for the final battles – between the living and the dead, and between Cersei and… everyone else. While most of the major players have been in place for a while, there are some new characters being introduced for the final season – although there’s no telling who will make it through to the finale.

From the Starks to the Lannisters, and from King’s Landing to Westeros, here are the characters set to appear in Game of Thrones season 8 – and who they’re allied with.

The biggest names returning are those that even the most casual fan should have no issue remembering. Jon Snow, a.k.a. Aegon Targaryen (Kit Harington), is now King in the North, focused on dealing with the White Walker threat, and in the season 7 finale became… intimate… with Daenerys. Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), is making her final bid for the Throne, with two dragons behind her (Rhaegal and Drogon), and will be standing with Jon Snow against the army of the dead. Here are the other characters returning in season 8:

  • Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner): Now Lady of Winterfell and a true survivor, Sansa has reservations about the alliance with Daenerys
  • Arya Stark (Maisie Williams): Returned home to Winterfell after training with the Faceless Men in Braavos.
  • Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright): Returned to Winterfell after becoming the Three-Eyed Raven north of the Wall.
  • Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey): Currently reigning Queen in King’s Landing and planning to sit out the war with the Night King.
  • Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage): Now Hand of the Queen to Daenerys and standing against his family.
  • Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau): Left his sister’s side in the season 7 finale to join the fight against the undead.
  • The Night King (Vladimir Furdik) – Leader of the White Walkers and their army of wights, currently marching south.
  • Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie): The former Kingsguard to Renly Baratheon and the protector of the Stark daughters.
  • Podrick Payne (Daniel Portman): Brienne of Tarth’s loyal squire, who joins her at Winterfell.
  • Gregor ‘The Hound’ Clegane (Rory McCann): Ex Lannister bodyguard and warrior who is now allied with the Starks.
  • Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan): An heir to the Iron Isles, and currently captured in King’s Landing.
  • Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen): Former ward of the Starks who is now on his way to rescue his sister.
  • Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk): Yara and Theon’s uncle, who is on his way to hire the Golden Company for Cersei.
  • Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen): Recently cured of Greyscale and returned to the service of the Queen.
  • Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel): A former slave turned translator and advisor to the Queen.
  • Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson): The leader of the Unsullied army.
  • Varys (Conleth Hill): The master of Whispers, who is now allied with Daenerys.
  • Edmure Tully (Tobias Menzies): Lord of Riverrun and the younger brother of Catelyn Stark.
  • Robin Arryn (Lino Facioli): Lord of the Vale and cousin to the Starks on their mother’s side.
  • The Mountain (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson): Serving as a resurrected bodyguard to Cersei.
  • Qyburn (Anton Lesser) : The disgraced Maester who ‘saved’ the Mountain is now serving as Cersei’s Hand of the Queen.
  • Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham): Stannis’ former right-hand man is now standing with Daenerys and Jon at Winterfell.
  • Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer): A many-times resurrected fighter and leader of the Brotherhood Without Banners, who was last seen at the fall of the Wall.
  • Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju): A wildling leader who was with Beric when Viserion destroyed the Wall.
  • Lyanna Mormont (Bella Ramsey): The fierce young ruling Lady of House Mormont
  • Gendry Baratheon (Joe Dempsie): The illegitimate son of King Robert, now working at Winterfell as a blacksmith.
  • Melisandre (Carice Van Houten): A priestess of the Lord of Light who believes Jon is the second coming of Azor Ahai.

The appearance of the Golden Company also means the introduction of a new character, the leader of the sellsword band, Harry Strickland (Marc Rissmann). He’s not the only character arriving in Westeros this season, either. Two potential Freys are going to become part of the show, with ‘Sarra’ (Danielle Galligan) and ‘Willa’ (Alice Nokes), assumed to be two of the only surviving Freys after Arya’s revenge bloodbath.

There’s no way to know which of these characters will make it into the final episode – or even past the first! There may even be a few other reappearances – Meera Reed (Ellie Kendrick) could return, despite having stomped off home after leaving Bran at Winterfell, or Daario Naharis (Michael Huisman), Dany’s man left in charge of Meereen. With a cast as massive of that of Game of Thrones, anything could happen – and fans are going to be glued to their seats to find out who actually wins the throne in the end.

Rogue One Prequel Gets 2021 Premiere; Alan Tudyk Returning As K-2SO

Lucasfilm’s Cassian Andor live-action Star Wars series is confirmed for a 2021 premiere on Disney+, and Alan Tudyk is returning as K-2SO. The actor first appeared as the character in 2016’s spinoff film Rogue One, where he quickly became a fan-favorite character. A reprogrammed Imperial droid, K2 was known for his blunt sense of humor and undying loyalty to Cassian. The two had a long history that was only hinted at in their lone big screen appearance, leaving viewers wanting to see more of the duo in action. A one-off comic exploring the origins of their partnership was published in December 2017.

Last year, Lucasfilm announced plans for a Rogue One prequel series, dubbed as a spy thriller revolving around Cassian’s time with the Rebel Alliance. Just based on the premise, many fans assumed K2 would be a part of the ensemble as well, though Tudyk himself played coy about his possible involvement when asked a couple months ago. But now, everyone knows the actor (and longtime Disney good luck charm) is going back to the galaxy far, far away.

Today during Disney’s Investor Day presentation, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy announced Tudyk’s role on the Cassian show. In their press release on the matter (via StarWars.com), the studio stated the series will go into production later this year in order to meet a 2021 launch date.

Tudyk’s return was always to be expected, but it’s still nice to see it be official. In Rogue One, he had strong chemistry with Diego Luna, and it’ll be fun to see them interact onscreen again. One of the benefits of the Disney+ platform is it gives the Mouse House’s various subsidiaries a place to tell long-form stories that the movies simply do not have time for. Similar to how Marvel is using the streaming service as an outlet for shows revolving around Falcon & Winter Soldier and Vision & Wanda, Lucasfilm is looking to flesh out various corners of their own canon to complement the feature films. If executed properly, the Cassian show will make Rogue One an even better movie, since audiences will get to see plenty other adventures Andor and K2 went on prior to their fateful mission on Scarif.

Sadly, fans still have a ways until they’ll actually get a chance to see what showrunner Stephen Schiff and his crew cooked up. The 2021 release date is likely a byproduct of production reportedly commencing in late 2019 due to Luna’s commitment to Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico. In all likelihood, episodes for the Rogue One prequel will be filming into 2020; The Mandalorian started principal photography in October 2018 and didn’t wrap until February 2019. Fortunately, there will be lots of other Star Wars content coming out over the next couple of years to make the wait a little more bearable.

Walking Dead: Chandler Riggs Interested in Returning as Carl Grimes

Over a year after saying goodbye to the long-running character, Chandler Riggs says he would be interested in returning to The Walking Dead as Carl Grimes. The character of Carl Grimes, the son of Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Lori Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies), was first introduced in the original Walking Dead comics created by Robert Kirkman. Riggs debuted as the youthful Carl on AMC’s adaptation of The Walking Dead beginning in season 1 and stayed on until the character’s death midway through season 8.

Almost from the beginning, Riggs’ TV depiction of Carl was criticized, and many jokes ensued as the actor aged too fast for the show’s relatively slow-moving timeline. Despite these issues, the show mainly stuck with the character’s arc from the comics, even depicting the gruesome moment when he loses an eye. Ultimately though, Scott Gimple and the TWD powers-that-be elected to move on from Carl and Riggs, killing the character off in dramatic fashion at the mid-way point of season 8. The decision to kill Carl was of course met with a lot of disapproval by long-time TWD comic book fans, as in the comics Carl does not die at the same point in the story but instead lives on to become an even more central character (and indeed is still alive to this day). The show made up for the loss of Carl by splitting his comics storyline between a post-time-jump Judith and Henry.

It’s been over a year since The Walking Dead removed Carl Grimes from the mix, but Riggs hasn’t entirely moved on yet. Speaking to the crowd at Walker Stalker Con London, Riggs said he would be open to making a return appearance as Carl if the opportunity arose (via ComicBook.com, h/t CBR). Riggs said, “Great, yeah, it’d be a lot of fun. I’m super down, yeah. That would be awesome.” In the meantime, Riggs has continued his acting career outside the TWD universe, scoring a role on the ABC show A Million Little Things.

It’s of course nothing new for long-dead characters to make return appearances on The Walking Dead, and not as zombies either. Recently, Jon Bernthal, Scott Wilson and Sonequa Martin-Green all made comebacks to the show that killed them off as part of Rick Grimes’ own departure episode (Rick is of course not dead and is expected to return in future Walking Dead movies). Such appearances are normally executed as part of flashbacks or hallucinations, and frequently give a little nostalgic jolt to proceedings as fans get one more chance to say goodbye to popular characters from the past.

Given his remarks, it seems Riggs would be more-than-willing to appear in a future flashback or dream sequence to put on Carl’s hat and eyepatch one more time. It remains to be seen if The Walking Dead can fit in a nostalgic Carl appearance as the show moves forward into season 10 and perhaps beyond.

Viola Davis Reportedly Returning for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad

Viola Davis is reportedly returning as Amanda Waller for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. While Gunn’s DC Extended Universe movie has been described as a “total reboot” of the property by producer Peter Safran, it’s becoming increasingly clear that’s not really the case. So far, Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney are both set to reprise their respective roles from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad (Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang) in Gunn’s film. Meanwhile, Will Smith was planning to reprise his role as Deadshot in Gunn’s movie, but had to pass due to a scheduling conflict, and has since been replaced by Idris Elba.

The Suicide Squad comic books revolve around a rotating roster of incarcerated super-villains who are recruited by the government to carry out jobs that are deemed too dangerous or illicit for DC’s superheroes to execute, with the promise of reduced jail sentences for their efforts (if they survive). As the team title implies, these missions have a tendency to get its members killed, and only a handful end up actually living to fight another day. Of course, their boss Amanda Waller is a constant, and it looks like the DCEU movies will follow suit in that respect.

Related: Why James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is NOT a Reboot

The Wrap is reporting that Waller will reprise her role as Waller from Ayer’s Suicide Squad for Gunn’s movie, based on intel from a source close to the project. Assuming that’s the case, it shouldn’t be too long before either Davis or Warner Bros. confirms the news.

As poorly as Ayer’s Suicide Squad fared with critics, it was a big box office success (grossing $747 million at the global box office) and featured a motley crew of characters that, for the most part, audiences seemed to like. That was certainly the case with Davis as Waller, who did a great job of capturing the character’s ruthless nature in a relatively limited amount of screen-time. Waller, as indicated earlier, is a bit like the Nick Fury to the Suicide Squad’s Avengers in the comic books, so it only makes sense for the character to appear in The Suicide Squad in some capacity. And seeing as the movie is shaping up to be more of a soft reboot than anything else (WB Chairman Toby Emmerich even called it Suicide Squad 2 at the studio’s CinemaCon presentation this week), there’s absolutely no reason to not have Davis come back and tackle the role again.

Of course, those who bit the dust in Ayer’s movie (RIP Slipknot and El Diablo) won’t be coming back for The Suicide Squad, so there will have to be some fresh additions to the lineup in Gunn’s film. It’s been reported that the new recruits will include obscure characters like Polka-Dot Man and Peacemaker, as well as super-villains like The Flash‘s King Shark. But again, knowing Waller, there’s a very good chance that she’ll end up sending one or more of these newcomers to the grave with whatever mission she’s got planned next for The Suicide Squad.

Jai Courtney Confirms He’s Returning For James Gunn’s Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad actor Jai Courtney has confirmed that his character, Captain Boomerang, will indeed be returning for James Gunn’s upcoming sequel, The Suicide Squad. As the movie’s title suggests, this will be as much a soft reboot as a sequel, focusing largely on a new group of villains as they’re rounded up to reluctantly form a crime-fighting team.

Other returning characters include Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, and the sharpshooter assassin Deadshot – though the latter won’t be played by Will Smith this time around. Due to scheduling conflicts preventing Smith from taking part in the sequel, Idris Elba is in talks to replace him as the character. Other DC villains that are expected to feature in The Suicide Squad‘s team include King Shark, Peacemaker, Polka Dot Man, and Ratcatcher, and Gunn reportedly wants Guardians of the Galaxy actor Dave Bautista to play Peacemaker.

Related: Suicide Squad 2’s New Characters Explained

While it definitely looks like the team is getting a shake-up, one character who will be returning is Courtney’s Captain Boomerang, a wily Australian thief with a talent for throwing sharpened boomerangs with deadly precision. Speaking o Business Insider, Courtney confirmed, “We’re getting ready to shoot in a few months’ time. There’s not much else I can reveal about it but, yeah, you’ll be seeing Boomerang back for sure.

Of course, we don’t know in what capacity Captain Boomerang will be returning, and some fans have theorized that Gunn’s movie will kill off members of the previous Suicide Squad en masse at the start of the movie, resulting in a need for new recruits. The team is so-called because the Suicide Squad are sent on extremely dangerous black ops missions, and since they’re criminals they’re considered expendable. In David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, poor Slipknot had barely started the mission before he tried to pull off an escape attempt and ended up getting his head blown off by the bomb implanted in his neck. Incidentally, it was Captain Boomerang who convinced Slipknot to try and escape, as a test to see if the bombs were real.

Though he doesn’t exactly have the most useful of skill sets, Captain Boomerang was a generally well-liked character in the first movie, owing to the fact that he mainly served as comic relief. He’s definitely the kind of lovable misfit character that Gunn could have a lot of fun with. As the actor mentioned, The Suicide Squad is expected to begin filming later this year, in September, so we can probably expect more casting news and character details to emerge soon.
