The thriller is going to be directed by Olivier Megaton(Taken, Colombiana), and is written by Karl Gajdusek(Oblivion, exec producer Stranger Things).

Angela Bassett (Ramonda) confirms that her character and Shuri (Letitia Wright) both survived Thanos’ snap, and are currently running things in Wakanda. This will make fans of Black Panther very happy, but still no word on how much of a role they will have in Avengers 4. (Source: Comic Book Movie)

Ravi Patel, Gabriella Wilde, and Natasha Rothwell are all joining Wonder Woman 1984. There is no word yet on any of the three actors’ role in the movie. Wonder Woman 1984 is already in production, and is set to debut November 1, 2019. Patel is currently working on a new reality development slate after his success with Meet the Patels, and is going to be in Flarsky, a Charlize Theron directed movie releasing in February. Wilde starred in The Three Musketeers, and Carrie. Rothwell is coming off of success with Love, Simon, and Insecure. (Source: DeadlineDeadline)

On December 21, fans will get to see Aquaman, and they’ll see classic elements from the comic books. Black Manta, and Mera look exactly like they were designed in the comic books, and now Aquaman himself will be wearing the classic orange and green costume. James Wan is a huge fan of the classic elements from the Aquaman comics, and it definitely is showing! (Source: Comicbook)

Geoff Johns is going to be writing Green Lantern, and its incredibly personal to him. He wants to do the movie right, but he’s not ready to talk about it just yet. Moving to his own production company is allowing him to work on things at his own pace, and not fall into the trap of doing too much. (Source: Comicbook)
