The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is forced to recast Commander Lyme and picks up a Game of Thrones star!

Image
It has unfortunately been announced that due to a scheduling conflict actress Lily Rabe has had to step down from her role of Commander Lyme for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

This may cause some awkward moments since Rabe was able to shoot The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 but will be changed to a different actress for Part 2.

The role of Commander Lyme was picked up by actress Gwendoline Christie who is currently best known for her role on HBO's Game of Thrones as Brienne. Christie definitely fits the description of Commander Lyme better than Rabe does and we know from Game of Thrones that she can certainly have the badass warrior look.

Are you upset that Lily Rabe has had to step down from the role? Do you think that Gwendoline Christie will be a convincing Commander Lyme?

Spider-Man in real life! A great Improv Everywhere video!

Improv Everywhere's newest video in their "Movies in Real Life" series focuses on New York's favorite web-slinger Spider-Man. This new stunt has a person dressed as Spider-Man swing down from a 20 story building in Manhattan in order to save a girl who is being kidnapped.

This is a really fun stunt but to me the best part is that this young woman is being held over a guy's shoulder, who is wearing a ski mask, screaming for someone to help her and nobody does anything. Yet when she screams that she sees Spider-Man everyone stops, looks, and points in excitement. Oh New York you are too much.

J.K. Rowling commented about how the project came together by stating,
“When I say he made Fantastic Beasts happen, it isn’t P.R.-speak but the literal truth. We had one dinner, a follow-up telephone call, and then I got out the rough draft that I’d thought was going to be an interesting bit of memorabilia for my kids and started rewriting!” The films will not be …

Check out this amazing infographic created by Emil Johansson that chronicles the timeline of the One Ring from Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The timeline tracks the ring through Middle Earth over the course of 4,860 years as it traveled from ring bearer to ring bearer (all seven of them). The impressive thing about this infographic is that it also breaks down the War of the Ring. Look on as the One Ring is forged by Sauron in the Second Age and destroyed as Gollum falls into the depths of Mount Doom in the Third Age. Johansson has done an amazing job with this infographic and all Tolkien fans out there will love it.

Set photos reveal Captain America's new outfit for Avengers: Age of Ultron!

Image
Some more set photos have surfaced for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron and this time they are coming all the way from the set in South Korea. These new set photos reveal the new outfit that Captain America will be wearing in the film. It should be noted that it is not actor Chris Evans in these photos but his stunt double.

It's hard to see from these angles but the new outfit for Captain America looks pretty cool. It'll be nice to see a more straight on and closer look to really see what the outfit looks like. Though it is hard to make out the whole outfit, I'd love to know what you think of what you can see so far. 

Avengers: Age of Ultron will hit theaters on May 1, 2015.
