KINGSMAN 3 RELEASE DATE

 

 

With the upcoming James Bond installment delayed until 2020, another UK super-spy is stepping in to mind the gap. The rumored third movie in the Kingsman trilogy has been officially confirmed and will be released on Bond’s former release date of November 8, 2019.

ChloÉ Zhao TO direct marvel’s eternals

 

 

In an intriguing departure from her previous heartland-based indie standouts Songs My Brother Taught Me and The Rider, director Chloé Zhao has been brought on by Marvel to helm the next addition to their packed Marvel Cinematic Universe slate.

 

Eternals, based on the comic cook characters created by Jack Kirby, will center on a mysterious group of early human ancestors granted superpowers and near-immortality by otherworldly beings. The state of the MCU after the upcoming Avengers 4 is murky, with this new addition offering some insight into what fans can expect from Marvel in the years to come.

 

BIRDS OF PREY MOVIE RELEASE DATE

 

 

In other costumed crime-fighting news, Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn will be back for more mischief in 2020, and she’s bringing a few friends along for the ride.

 

Based on the all-women team-up comic Birds of Prey, the currently untitled film will feature Quinn meting out her own skewed brand of justice alongside other DC anti-heroines like Black Canary and Huntress. Casting for these roles is currently underway, but with a set release date of February 7, 2020, fans won’t have to wait too long for the return of Suicide Squad‘s scene-stealing star.
