In #Trending I’ll highlight and offer my opinions on any comic-related news that occurred during the week. This will included news about comic books, comic-related movies, TV shows, video games, etc. including sharing any hot trailers that were released. Let’s begin:
Fantastic Four trailer hits!
1) Bryne back for Apocalypse + Possible Fantastic Four crossover?: Rose Byrne will be returning to play Moira MacTaggert in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Writer/Producer Simon Kinberg has also hinted of a possible crossover with Fox’s other hero franchise, the Fantastic Four, saying “If we wanted to find a way to connect them to the X-Men, we could.”
2) Marvel Casting News: Doctor Who star, David Tennant, is joining the Marvel roster as the Purple Man in the upcoming Netflix series Marvel’s A.K.A Jessica Jones. Transformers actress Rachael Taylor will be joining him as one of Marvel’s oldest female characters, Patsy Walker/Hellcat
3) DC Casting News: Mehcad Brooks has been cast as James Olsen in CBS’s Supergirl.

You know, I feel strangely ambivalent about the new Ghostbusters. It’s good they’re making a major blockbuster-grade film with an all-women lead cast, sure, but I also feel like I enjoyed Ghostbusters enough thirty years ago I don’t much care whether I do it again.
I would have rather seen them do a mixed cast with maybe two male, two female. I’m not a big fan of the actresses cast either especially Melissa McCarthy. Her brand of humor does nothing for me…
