Hey friends! We had some technical difficulties with the site recently which caused us to have to sort of restart everything we had planned. But, sometimes that’s a good thing in the Entertainment world, and we think it may be a good thing for us. We have a TON of new features coming up, and plans that will make Poor Man’s Spoiler even better than it’s ever been before! So stay tuned!
We’ve been working on compiling all the information out of Comic Con and it’s been a hell of an undertaking. To make it a bit easier we’ve decided to give you two HUGE posts with all the important info right here. (We’ve split it into two parts, with the first part consisting of all the stuff you may not have heard about. Part 2 will feature our full rundown of the Arrowverse shows, Gotham, The Walking Dead and a few other big players.)
Actor Taron Egerton is rumored to be in talks to star as none other than Sir Elton John in the biopic Rocketman.

I’m going to start this off by saying take every single part of this with a grain of salt, maybe a ton of salt to be honest. At the Comic Con panel for IDW’s Ghostbusters 101 comic book. Original Ghostbusters Director, and Producer of the entire franchise, Ivan Reitman let some small tidbits out about upcoming Ghostbusters films.
