NYCC has brought us lots of cool news, and the latest is this trailer for John Wick 2. Keanu Reeves’ action-packed revenge thriller John Wick became a resounding success back in 2014, not because it did anything new per se, but simply because it excelled at being exactly the type of popcorn-accompanying B-movie you’d want it to be. (It also served as the inspiration for Keanu, that Key & Peele parody with the kitten.) Common will be in the sequel as the “newest hitman,” as you can see in this trailer. EW reports that at the NYCC panel to promote the film, Common said: “It’s an assassin’s love story.” He implied that the “love story” unfolds between Reeves’ character and his own, which is probably just a joke……. unless it isn’t?????

  • This week, the internet has gotten some small glimpses of Wolverine 3, now officially titled Logan. Today, we’ve got another image, which shows why the movie will be rated R: it’s a pic of a severed hand holding a shotgun. Yikes!
  • Finished watching Luke Cage yet? Great, then you can read Simone Missick’s comments about Misty Knight’s possible bionic arm.
  • We love all these Supergirl/Arrow crossovers–but don’t worry, none of that is a sign that Supergirl will be losing her show and getting absorbed into some other DC show. Producer Andrew Kreisberg assured EW that Supergirl’s new home on the CW is safe. Plus, he shared some other deets about the upcoming season.

That about wraps it up for us here at TMS. What’d you see out there today?
