Will J.K Simmons return as J.J Jameson? Agent Carter broaches the mystery of Black Widow and Telltale’s Game of Thrones gets an episode 2 today and tomorrow.

Film

The Ben-Hur remake has officially begun shooting, with the cast list also being announced, you can see for yourself here. Originally starring Charlton Heston as the eponymous character, the new cast is mostly fresh faced, besides that of Morgan Freeman.

The Pacific Rim universe, according to writer Zak Penn, is a rich mine of mythology, so the sequel that’s on the cards, has the potential to revisit the world of the first film while shining new (well thought out) light on the Kaiju.

Would you like to see J.K. Simmons back in the role of Spiderman‘s J.J.Jameson? That’s a trick question; everyone does. You might be in luck then, as he may have spilled some of the beans in a recent interview, revealing that there could be something on the horizon for our favourite yelling newspaper mogul.

Television

Marvel’s A.K.A Jessica Jones has cast the Matrix star Carrie-Ann Moss as an original character for the show, who will apparently hold a lot of weight with the goings on of NYC and the events of the show.

A few new images from Game of Thrones season 5 have been graciously given to us from upon high. More Cersei looking moody, more Baelish looking sneaky, more unsullied romance! Game of Thrones returns on April 12th.

Tonight’s Agent Carter episode ‘The Iron Ceiling’ will not only feature Captain America‘s Howling Commandos, but will, reportedly shed light on one of the biggest mysteries of the MCU, no, not how all these people have perfect hair no matter what, but the mystery of Black Widow. The video included in this link is one of those region specific pests, but you only have to wait until tonight for the episode.
