Here we are again for yet another YA Onscreen! I can breathe easier now that I have seen Infinity War and yet…also not. Can it be next year yet? I guess I’ll amuse myself with news for the next 51 weeks. Read on!
According to Riverdale writer Britta Lundin, fan fiction has made TV more diverse. Do you agree?
I have this entire sequence in my head about Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch were filming Infinity War and spent their time in between shooting discussing the merits of playing Sherlock Holmes. Downey started getting jealous of the more recent success Cumberbatch was having with the role and was determined to get the last word in, so he called up Jude Law, and before you can say Bob’s your uncle, there was a sequel in the works for Christmas 2020. Your move, Cumberbatch.
This has been on the books for awhile but with the advent of actual actors attached to the piece, it looks like things are finally moving forward for the Starz adaptation of Daniel O’Malley’s The Rook. Emma Greenwell, formerly from The Path, is going to be the lead role, Myfanwy Thomas. Olivia Munn sounds like she’s getting a new-to-the-show role, and others have also been cast. I urge everyone to read this book before seeing the show, so you, too, can join me in probably being disappointed by the fact that Stephenie Meyer has her fingers in this.
Has Marvel solved their villain problem using Thanos (most definitely major IW spoilers)?
I don’t know what Lili Reinhart is wearing here, but she and Cole Sprouse are formally announcing their relationship, and they look quite cute.
Broadway is reuniting on TV: Laura Benanti is going to be guest-starring on Sutton Foster’s show, Younger, as a self-made billionaire.
Drew is probably more smiles than usual as the third season of Santa Clarita Diet has been confirmed.
No, no, you could not, Mr. Hiro:
Ali Wong will be joining Tiffany Haddish in voicing a character on her new Netflix cartoon, Tuca & Bertie.
Watch the new season 5 trailer for Arrested Development. Anyone else want to rewatch it now?
Meanwhile, the actors of the show are calling out to be paid after this remixed season 4 was released, as it will be given to Fox for easier syndication formatting (but would currently mean they wouldn’t get any of the benefits of said venture).
Are you happy with where Supergirl’s Kara and Mon-El are at currently? Chris Woods is.
That’s it for the week. Let us know your thoughts below!
