And is it just us, or do the preview pictures from series 9 prequel The Doctor’s Meditation feature a rather familiar chalice? Considering we last saw the goblet in the hands of a regenerating Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) in The Night of the Doctor, could this spell doom for Peter Capaldi’s incarnation of the Time Lord?
Er, probably not actually. Be a bit bad form to off the Doctor before the series has even begun…
Not all superheroes are quite so touchy-feely these days, however – certainly not the antiheroes of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, who wrapped filming this week (see below), or the warring heroes of Captain America: Civil War who looked to be getting quite fighty in newly-released concept art (above). Still, always nice to see Hawkeye and Ant-Man palling up for stuff.
Luckily, there’s still some fun to be found in superhero news this week – check out this video of the rigmarole Paul Bettany had to go through to get glammed up as the Vision for Avengers: Age of Ultron. No wonder the heroes are so angry and frustrated these days – must take ages to go out in the evenings.
Star Wars snippets
An exciting one this week, where we were given both a vague quote about a character and a 15-second advert for upcoming Star Wars sequel The Force Awakens. They do spoil us.
