Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Wonder Woman: Last month, we heard that Ares, the God of War and son of Zeus, would be a villain in Wonder Woman. Now comes word that the character is “a mix of CGI and practical effects” and is played by David Thewlis (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, above), who was added to the cast back in November. It’s also reported that Ares will be the primary villain in the movie, which is due in theaters on June 2. [Batman News]


Logan: Hugh Jackman has confirmed that Logan will feature his final performance as the titular character, but fans have still been wondering if the movie will have a postcredits stinger, which has become almost de rigeur for the superhero genre. Reports from early screenings indicated no such scenes were shown, but now a new report claims that the release version will include an added scene, either midway through the credits or at the very end. Logan opens in theaters on March 3. [Collider]

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast Clip: A new clip from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast features Emma Watson leading a rendition of the song “Belle,” which introduced the character in the original animated movie. Dan Stevens and Luke Evans also star; the movie opens in theaters on March 17. [Movieclips]
