RiverdaleSUPERMAN'S NEW BACKSTORY GIVES LOIS LANE THE CREDIT SHE DESERVES04/26/17 @ 8:25 pm EST
actor Ross Butler, who plays Reggie Mantle, is being replaced due to outside commitments making him unable to film the second season, according to showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
“We love what Ross did with the role of Reggie [this season], but because of his commitments to other projects, we couldn’t use him nearly as much as we would have liked,” Aguirre-Sacasa told TVLine
. “[Next season], we want more Reggie on our show - he’s Archie’s rival! - and because Ross is unavailable to come back to Riverdale
, we’re looking for a new Reggie. Those are big shoes to fill, but we’re confident we can find an actor who is as funny and sexy as Ross. And of course we all wish Ross the best.”
Although the "other projects" are unspecified, the only other project Butler is publicly working on is the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why
. The first season debuted in late March, but unlike Riverdale
has yet to be renewed for a second season. TVLine
, however, said the streaming show "is a lock" for renewal.Riverdale
's first season is scheduled to conclude May 11, with a second season expected in early 2018.

Spoilers ahead for Action Comics #978, on sale today.M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN'S SPLIT AND UNBREAKABLE SEQUEL GLASS GETS RELEASE DATE04/26/17 @ 8:18 pm EST
In a minor retcon that will please a lot of Lois Lane fans, Superman revealed in today's Action Comics
#978 that Lois Lane was "too smart" not to have figured out his identity before he revealed it to her in 1991's Action Comics
The comment comes in the context of a Superman who knows that something isn't quite the same as it was before Mr. Mxyzptlk arrived and two versions of himself were "merged" to form a new reality in "Superman Reborn."
The specifics of that encounter with Mxy have already started to fade, though, and Superman only remembers that merged reality and his new history. It's an opportunity for the Man of Steel to examine his personal history, to make sure that time isn't broken as a result of his showdown with a Fifth Dimensional imp, and ultimately for the readers to get a sense of what does and doesn't "count" in the newly-merged reality.
Shortly after Superman proposed to Lois in the '90s, he confessed his secret to her, telling her that she deserved honesty from him. After a brief period of shock, Lois acclimated and agreed to marry him.
When that moment comes back around in the Fortress robots' history of the era, though, Superman stops the recording to say that while his wife would never admit it, she was too smart not to have known. The playback computer agrees with him, and the pair move on.
It may seem to non-fans like a very minor change -- the idea that Lois knew before Superman told her doesn't change the fact that she did not confront him about it, and he was allowed to tell her on his terms. Still, what it will do for Lois Lane fans is to reinforce that she isn't a world-class, Pulitzer-winning journalist who somehow managed not to notice that her boyfriend and a personal friend she used to see on a weekly basis were the same person.

CARS 3 - OFFICIAL TRAILER #5 [HD]04/26/17 @ 8:14 pm EST
M. Night Shyamalan scored another box office hit in January when he released Split
, a psychological thriller with X-Men
's James McAvoy playing a serial killer with split personality disorder.
In classic Shyamalan fashion, the movie ended with an epic twist: Split
was actually a superhero movie - a supervillain origin story to be accurate. And that supervillain existed in the same world as Bruce Willis' superman character David Dunn, from Unbreakable.
's big twist ending has been revealed, fans have been waiting for official confirmation on a threequel that will pit McAvoy's character, Horde, against Willis' David Dunn - and now we have it. As Shyamalan himself announced today, the Threequel will be titled Glass
, and it will hit theaters on January 18, 2019.

helped pave the way for the fighting game genre… and it's still going very strong today. I'm thrilled to be working with Capcom on this book, and the same amazing team that put together Art of Atari

Ewan McGregor is in talks to star in Disney's Christopher Robin
Disney's live-action film, which will be helmed by World War Z

(1926) and The House at Pooh Corner
(1928), and other poems. Disney adapted the tales into several animated projects, including the 1988 series The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

TOKYO GHOUL LIVE-ACTION MOVIE DEBUTS CREEPY NEW POSTER04/26/17 @ 10:58 am EST
Director James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
opened to a stellar $6.6 million in its first three foreign markets on Tuesday as it began its international assault in 37 territories this weekend, a week ahead of its May 5 launch in North America.
So far, the Disney and Marvel sequel is pacing well ahead of the first film. Guardians Vol. 2
debuted to $4.5 million in Australia, including previews. That's three times more than Guardians of the Galaxy
did in August 2014. It is also the second-highest opening day for any Marvel release behind 2012's The Avengers
.Guardians Vol. 2
posted similar gains in Italy on Tuesday with $1.4 million. And in New Zealand, its opening-day haul of $700,000 represented the biggest first-day take of the year so far.
Tracking suggests the quirky superhero tentpole could approach or top $100 million in its overseas debut.
In North America, Guardians Vol. 2
is tracking to launch in the $130 million-$150 million range, well ahead of the original's $94.7 million launch. The first film was a surprise hit and went on to earn $773 million globally, a rousing number considering it featured a rag-tag group of lesser-known superheroes.
