Joss Whedon Has Already Departed His New HBO Show
Get your first look at a big red dog in the teaser for Clifford the Big Red Dog. Josh Boone discusses why The Kid won’t be a part of the new adaptation of The Stand. Plus, new rumors about potential characters in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series, a brief tease for Lucifer’s return, and what’s up on the next episode of Star Trek: Discovery. To me, my spoilers!
Clifford the Big Red Dog
A new teaser has our first look at the live-action Clifford, the Big Red Dog. He’s red. And big!
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Josh Boone revealed neither Marilyn Manson nor his cover of “The End” will not appear in The Stand after all.
Later in the interview, showrunner Benjamin Cavell chimed in, “we thought we were going to be able to restore the character of The Kid, but there really isn’t a lot of reason for The Kid to exist.”
Get those salt shakers ready: A new report from The Illumuninerdi alleges Naomi Scott, Kim Hart, Elena Houghlin, Thuso Mbedu and Anula Navlekar are Disney’s top choices to play Riley, “a female BIPOC whose character details are being kept under wraps” in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series at Disney+. Additionally, Disney is looking to cast characters named (presumably codenamed) “Tia”, “Harold” and “Bella”.
