TV
Syfy Cancelations: Happy! And Deadly Class have both been cancelled over on Syfy.

Halo: According to /Film, 343 Industries head Kiki Wolfkill said in a recent interview that they are aiming to have a GoT level of character and plot development, without all the brother sister love.

Swamp Thing: After its first EPISODE the order was put in to cancel the series. The whole first season WILL air in its entirety (10 eps instead of the originally planned 13). There was a nasty rumor going around that there was a funding issue with a grant they production was given from the state of NC. Though such reports were unfounded.

Movies
Halloween… 3?: Jason Blum is apparently “discussing stuff” with Jamie Lee Curtis. No real details what that “stuff” might be, but io9 seems convinced that it has to do with a follow up to last year’s Halloween movie.

Black Adam: Jaume Collet-Serra is in talks to direct. Also did Jungle Cruise with the rock.

Svalta: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are celebrating 20 years as partners with a new horror movie for Orion Pictures.

Marvel Rumor: As we get rolling into phaze 4 the rumors have started to rumble as to who the next big bad will be for the MCU. The first rumor that has been heard from multiple sources is Green Goblin/Norman Osborn. With the Disney/Sony contract for Spider-Man about to get re-negotiated, this one might have some legs. Also, there are rumblings of future plans for an update to the Avengers. New Avengers, Young Avengers, and Dark Avengers are all apparently fair game.
