? Star Trek co-writer/co-producer Roberto Orci swears that despite whatever Karl Urban said, Benedict Cumberbatch is not playing Gary Mitchell in Star Trek 2. He also says Cumberbatch and Alice Eve are canon characters, though (Nurse Rand?) and everybody else is new. This is annoying the shit out of me. JUST TELL US THE VILLAIN. IT’S JUST A FUCKING STAR TREK MOVIE. IT’S NOT A STATE FUCKING SECRET. (Via /Film)
? Sam Raimi is no longer directing the World of Warcraft
movie, in case you accidentally remembered he was still supposed to be doing that. (Via /Film
? Full disclosure time: I saw the news that Jessica Biel was in talks to play Viper back on Wednesday or Thursday of last week. I didn’t report it, because “talks” are bullshit. These are things that may be happening, not things that are happening. They’re not news. Anyways, after seeing every other nerd site in existence report the same non-news, I caved a couple of hours ago
and posted it… only to immediately discover those talks fell through
pretty much the minute my article went up.
So I am done posting things that are obviously not news. I can’t say I won’t post rumors, because some rumors are big enough they are news. But I will do my damnedest to stick to reporting things that are actually happening, not things that may be happening, to the best of my ability.
