Hellboy, Runaways, Avengers: Infinity War, And Other Film And TV Casting News

Hellboy, RunawaysAvengers: Infinity War, and other films and TV shows have made recent casting news.

These productions come from studios based primarily in the United States. The castings are subject to change.

Avengers: Infinity War

Samuel L. Jackson reveals that he has not been approached about appearing in Avengers: Infinity War or its planned sequel. Absent from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s last crossover film Captain America: Civil War, Jackson did not seem pleased about his character Nick Fury being snubbed for the next two Avengers films. However, the news comes sometime after it came to light that Fury would figure into the story of Captain Marvel, so fans can rest assured that they will eventually see one-time SHIELD director on the big screen again.

Runaways

Julian McMahon has signed onto the cast of Hulu’s original Marvel series Runaways. McMahon has previously worked in productions based on Marvel’s comics, portraying Doctor Doom in the first two Fantastic Four films. Little is known about his Runaways role aside from the fact that he is important to the show’s storyline.

Odeya Rush will co-star in the music comedy Dumplin’.

Castle Rock

Scott Glenn will play Alan Pangborn alongside Bill Skarsgard and Jane Levy in Hulu’s proposed Stephen King adaptation Castle Rock.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I’ve made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I’m not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school’s TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
