May 18 – Rundown – Whedon on The Avengers 2, Dragon Age III – VIDEO



Briana has Joss Whedon’s thoughts on The Avengers sequel, info on how you can help shape Dragon Age III, and more in the Rundown.

MOVIES/TV:

– Joss Whedon may not be back in the director’s chair for The Avengers sequel. He is currently torn, saying that it’s a lot of work to tell telling Marvel’s story, although he has some cool ideas if he does end up making it. No news yet as to the expected release date for the sequel, but considering the first is still breaking every box office record it can get its hands on, it may not be for a while.

– The first trailer for Sam Raimi’s possession-themed film The Possession has possessed the internet. It focuses on a young girl who is possessed by a dybbuk, an ancient Hebrew demon. The Possession will possess theaters August 31, but you can possess the trailer below.

– Alex Russell, one of the telepathic stars of Chronicle will star in another movie about a “gifted” high school student. Russell will play one of the bullies that pushes Carrie over the edge in the upcoming remake for Carrie. The titular character will be played by Chloe Mortez, and Julianne Moore will be her insane mother. The cast for this is shaping up quite nicely, we can’t wait to see her wreak some havoc in 2013.
