Rumor Mill


Cassian Andor
Jimmy Smits and Alistair Petrie are currently in talks to reprise their roles as Bail Organa and General Draven.

Snyder Cut
While still just a rumor, it seems that it won’t be for long. Reportedly Snyder showed a version of his movie to AT&T execs, who loved what they saw and greenlit the funds required to finish.

Batwoman
With the reveal of the face of Bruce Wayne in a recent episode of Batwoman, the rumor mill is churning out all kinds of Batman related stuff. The largest of which is saying that we will FINALLY be getting Bats in season 2 of the show, played by Warren Christie (who kinda played him already).

Green Lantern
The HBO Max series is stirring up the internets... 
The series will very likely play into the new movie (duh…)
It will also NOT feature Hal Jordan or John Stewart because they are said to be the focus of the movie, it will instead have 2 storylines to follow, one in the past and one in the present. The past will focus on Sinestro’s fall and the death of Abin Sur, and the present story will show the recruitment of Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz. 
There are even rumors involving season 2. Those being that it will continue the split timeline approach, this time showing Hal Jordan training with Sinestro in the past and then Hal again in the present training John. With Guy Gardner making an appearance as well.

The OA
Season 3 is now being rumored for the end of 2020
