Debris

NBC is trying their hand at an X-Files style show again. This time called Debris, and it is starring Riann Steele (Ant Man and the Wasp, Legacies, Magicians) and Jonathan Tucker (Westworld, Snowfall). Created by the Almost Human creator, J.H. Wyman. This will be the first NBC pilot from 2020 to go to series. Both pilots they had this year got picked up, the other one though, La Brea, won’t go to series until later this year.

“two agents, played by Steele and Tucker, from two different continents, and two different mindsets, must work together to investigate when wreckage from a destroyed alien spacecraft has mysterious effects on humankind.”

Rumor Mill

 

The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It

New Line is likely to move the third movie from Sept. 11, back to sometime next year.

 

Fable

Rumors abound about the XBox exclusive series. With Microsoft renewing the patent for the game just days before it expired, speculation has it that there will be a new Fable game as a launch title for Series X.

 

Bat-ffleck

MORE BATMAN RUMORS! This time they are saying that Ben Affleck has actually signed a deal to return to the cape and cowl. With the rumors continuing, saying that WB is actively working on a proper multiverse. So ALL of the Batman actors could be making some sort of return.

 

Flashpoint

Michael Keaton is said to be playing Bruce and not Thomas Wayne in a new set of rumors. They also say that we STILL won’t be seeing Jeffrey Dean Morgan return as Thomas, as the character isn’t even in the script.

 

Superman

DC is rumored to be making Supes the head of The Authority in the comic books… a pretty questionable move if real.

 

Justice League: Rebirth

Reportedly in the works with JJ Abrams being eyed to direct. A soft-reboot… but only if you don’t believe the other rumors.
