Actor Ray Stevenson has joined the cast of the Star Wars Ahsoka series as an Admiral of some sort but isn’t playing Grand Admiral Thrawn.

“It looks like we’re finally getting some more details about the Rosario Dawson-led Ahsoka series, scant though they may be. In the latest casting news, we learn that Ray Stevenson, known for playing Volstagg in the Thor movies, has been announced as a villain in the series. The only detail we have other than that is that he will be playing an admiral. And no, this is not the admiral Ahsoka was on the hunt for when she made her live-action appearance in the second season of The Mandalorian. That would be Grand Amiral Thrawn.”

“In May, LEGO will release a 1,222 piece set from Guerrilla’s latest game, Horizon Forbidden West. And though that game isn’t out until Friday, fans of the franchise will surely recognize this unmistakable machine: the Tallneck. The Tallneck is one of the few docile species in the world of Horizon; it’s a key ally in opening up the map of main protagonist Aloy’s work. Each section of the map has one Tallneck and Aloy must figure out how to get to the top of it to unlock the rest of the area. That was true for Zero Dawn and it’s true for Forbidden West too.”

The lawsuit between Warner Brothers and Village Roadshow is getting nastier each day.

“It turns out that Village Roadshow’s lawsuit against Warner Bros. over the day-and-date streaming release of The Matrix Resurrections was merely the first prong in a multi-pronged attack against Warner Bros. and its commitment to HBO Max. The suit, filed last week, suggested that Warner Bros. launched the new Matrix sequel on streaming specifically to tank its viability at the box office and stop Village Roadshow from making any money, jeopardizing its position as a co-owner and co-financier of the series. It also accused WB of not consulting Village Roadshow on the new release strategy despite working out ‘acceptable accommodations; with stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss as well as director Lana Wachowski.”
