Game Of Thrones, Avengers: Infinity War, Green Lantern Corps And Other Film And TV News

Game of Thrones, Avengers: Infinity War, Green Lantern Corps, and other films and TV shows have made recent production news.

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

Green Lantern Corps

Rupert Wyatt is reported to be the front-runner for the director’s chair on Warner Bros.‘ proposed superhero movie Green Lantern Corps. Wyatt is best known for helming Rise of the Planet of the Apes and most recently oversaw production on the upcoming sci-fi film Captive State. If the rumor is true, he will be directing the studio’s reboot of its long-languishing Green Lantern property.

Avengers: Infinity War

Robert Downey Jr. seemed to indicate that his appearances in Avengers: Infinity War and its as of now untitled sequel may be his last as Tony Stark. Speaking to Australian outlet News.com, the Iron Man actor said that he wanted to “hang up [his] jersey before it’s embarrassing.”

Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones sound designer Paula Fairfield says that the the show’s eighth season may consist of feature-length episodes. This news is especially big as the season may only have six episodes in total, meaning that the producers will have more time to fit everything they want to in each segment.

Returning the Favor

Facebook has given the green light to Mike Rowe’s travel show Returning the Favor as part of the social media site’s venture into original programming.

Untitled Facebook Series

Facebook has also opted to produce an untitled documentary show focusing on Lonzo, Liangelo, and LaMelo Ball, a family of young basketball players who have taken the sport by storm.

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.
