Campbell, which is the story that brought us 1951's The Thing from Another World, 1982's The Thing, and 2011's The Thing. This one will include additional content from the expanded version of the story Frozen Hell,also from Campbell.

The Batman
Casting for Commissioner Pete Savage has just been announced (Alex Ferns). So at some point in the movie (likely the beginning) Jeffrey Wright’s Jim Gordon will not be police commissioner.
