​The Divergent Series: Ascendant

The Divergent film franchise is deviating from its expected course. Instead of concluding with a fourth theatrical release, The Divergent Series: Ascendant , studio Lionsgate is now looking to complete the story arc with a television movie, which would also lay the groundwork for a potential spin-off series set in the same dystopian future.

Based on a trilogy of young-adult novels by Veronica Roth, The Divergent Series is set in a post-apocalyptic society where people are divided into factions based on their personality types. Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort starred in the first three films — Divergent ,Insurgent , and Allegiant — but it is not yet known whether they would return for the TV finale.

While 2014’s Divergent and 2015’s Insurgent were solid box office performers, the series never reached the heights of Summit and Lionsgate’s blockbuster Twilight and Hunger Games franchises, and this year’s Allegiant was a critical and commercial dud.

Ascendant had been scheduled to hit theaters June 9, 2017, with Lee Toland Krieger ( Age of Adaline ) directing.

Lionsgate declined to comment.

“Iron Man 4” is currently making headlines again after its notable absence in Marvel Studios much-anticipated panel at the annual San Diego Comic-Con 2016. Even though several fans are clamoring for the release of the “Iron Man” sequel, the future of the franchise remains uncertain.

At the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, one of the highly anticipated panel was Marvel Studios. Although “Iron Man” fans expect that the studio will drop some information about the fourth installment of the franchise, no details have been revealed about the possible development and release of “Iron Man 4.”

‘Iron Man 4’ Development And Release Remain Uncertain

Despite the fact that “Iron Man” lead star Robert Downey Jr. has been absent in the past San Diego Comic-Con events, his recent no-show has ignited some questions about the future of the franchise. According to Vine Report, Marvel Studios dropped some updates and sneak peeks regarding the upcoming films for Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Unfortunately, no updates have been released regarding “Iron Man 4.” Instead, the Marvel panel focus on their upcoming movies such as “Black Panther,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Doctor Strange” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

​Game of Thrones Adds Harry Potter’s Jim Broadbent to Season 7 Cast


Jim Broadbent is heading to Westeros for Game of Thrones Season 7.

The Harry Potter alum has been cast in a mysterious but “significant” role, according to

Entertainment Weekly. HBO and the Game of Thrones producing team didn’t give out any further details in order to prevent major storylines from hitting the web.

Previously, recent casting notices for the HBO epic were leaked, and while Broadbent fits the description asking for a “venerable priest” in his 60s with a “characterful face,” TVGuide.com has a different theory (and posted cast listings have been misleading before). We think Broadbent would fit in really well at the Citadel with Sam (John Bradley ) — possibly even as the head maester.

Broadbent won an Academy Award for his supporting role in the 2001 film Iris , and his storied career includes appearances in Cloud Atlas, Longford , Brazil , Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull , Doctor Who and much more.

Who do you think Broadbent could play?
