WOW! been quite a week for me...here are your notes for the latest episode of the Comic Talk Headlines!

TV
The Stand: James Marsden and Amber Heard are in deep negotiations to star in the CBS All Access Mini-Series. Marsden will potentially be Stu Redman, and Heard will be Nadine Cross. ALSO Whoopi Goldberg is in talks to play Mother Abagail. http://collider.com/the-stand-tv-show-cast-cbs-all-access
Star Trek on Nickelodeon: Deadline spoke with Alex Kurtzman, EP on all things Star Trek, who said the production on the still untitled Nickelodeon show is progressing nicely. Says the animation is on par with anything you saw in Love, Death, and Robots as far as the cinematography goes, but will still be very much for kids. https://deadline.com/2019/06/star-trek-discovery-picard-alex-kurtzman-interview-podcast-1202634037/
Harley Quinn: The animated series will premiere content at San Diego Comic Con this year. DC has a slew of pilots premiering alongside it, Pennyworth, Batwoman, and Prodigal Son. DC was vague about WHAT the Harley premiere will be, though if they are doing all those pilots, what’s one more? I just want to see how Tudyk and Bader play off one another. https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/06/24/warner-bros-tv-sdcc-2019-schedule/
Walking Dead: Gold Derby, an Emmys prediction and analysis site, is predicting Samantha Morton could bring the FX show their first acting nod for her portrayal of Alpha. https://www.goldderby.com/article/2019/samantha-morton-the-walking-dead-emmys-alpha-whisperers/


Movies

Silver & Black: Amy Pascal said in a recent interview (not the one where she told us that Tom Hardy was returning) that there is still a plan in the works for a Silver Sable/Black Cat movie… or 2? https://screenrant.com/black-cat-movie-sony-plans/
Swamp Thing: Now that the show has been cancelled, WB is reportedly considering a movie in the vein of horror, We Got This Covered is saying. Is this due to the fan response? https://wegotthiscovered.com/movies/warner-bros-developing-swamp-movie/
The Trench: What once was dismissed as pure rumor is now being hyped by James Wan. Wan told ComicBook.com that it will be very much a horror movie, though still definitely in the Aquaman world. https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/06/21/james-wan-aquaman-trench-spinoff-movie-details/
28 Days Later 3: Danny Boyle, Producer and sometimes director of the first 2 movies, told The Independent that he and production partner, Alex Garland, have a working idea for the third installment of the blood zombie franchise. Though with both of them entrenched in other projects who knows if it will actually get made, https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/28-days-later-3-danny-boyle-alex-garland-james-bond-interview-robert-pattinson-a8971776.html
