STAR WARS

A major question on "Star Wars" fans' minds has been whether any of the original cast will reprise their roles for the upcoming trilogy. Latino Review has begun the rumor that Harrison Ford will return as Han Solo for Episode VII. Should the rumor be true, it would be a huge get for the new trilogy. Stay tuned for more info as it develops.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Brian Singer has been in the news quite a bit while doing press for his film "Jack the Giant Killer" and has gotten the opportunity to tease more about "X-Men: Days of Future Past." While speaking with HitFix, Singer stated he'd be able to "correct a few things" with the "First Class" sequel.

"This movie's gonna be not only quite epic, 'Days of Future Past,' but it also takes place in completely different times than the 'X Men' movies have taken place," Singer told HitFix. "There'll be new technology, new things we haven't seen before in 'X-Men' films. Certain characters and certain story and certain drama that hasn't be done yet, so it's not so much sequel. It's more of its own kinda thing."

This week, Singer confirmed "Game of Thrones" actor Peter Dinklage would join the "Days of Future Past" cast, and Variety reports Dinklage has actually been cast as the film's primary villain. No other word was given on his role.

MAN OF STEEL

It's been a while since there was any concrete "Man of Steel" news, but star Henry Cavill spoke with Total Film Magazine about the film, and Comic Book Movie has posted excerpts from the interview.

"This is not a movie about Zack Snyder directing something, or Henry Cavill playing a character...It's a selfless movie about a character who is going through what he is going through," Cavill told Total Film. "He wants to do the right thing, but he's fallible, like the rest of us. He messes up, and that makes us love him more."
