Another casting announcement has come out regarding AMC’s “Preacher” adaptation. I think this is the universe telling me to hurry up and read the Preacher graphic novels. “. Young actor Ian Colletti (Fox’s Rake) has joined the drama pilot, from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Colletti plays Eugene Root, aka Arseface. Even with his horribly disfigured face and severe speech impediment, Eugene’s still the nicest kid you’ll ever meet and really looks up to Jesse. Stomach-churningly difficult to look at, Eugene’s the town’s reviled Frankenstein’s monster, but that won’t change his earnest, sweet and pure outlook on life. However, he is troubled by something terrible he’s done in the past — something he fears might have turned God himself against him.” I was already excited for this, but when you include a character nicknamed Arseface….I’m sold!
Meanwhile, the website Collider has learned that filming on Captain America: Civil War begins on April 1st. They’ve also received a plot synopsis that reads; “Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.” We won’t have to wait long to see the genesis of the conflict, which begins in Avengers: Age of Ultron, opening on May 1, 2015.
