1. Linda Hamilton at First Thought Arnold Schwarzenegger Was a ‘Poser’ on ‘The Terminator’ Set | IndieWire
“By our snotty definition, Arnold was a poser, a bodybuilder pretending to be an actor,” Hamilton said. “But because I was curious, I went and stood off the sidelines watching Arnold, and I bought it. The physicality and the stiffness, and all of the things that he was implementing. I was like, ‘OK, this might work.’”
2. Stephen Amell Gets Brutally Honest About DCU Recasting, After 11 Years Playing Green Arrow | ScreenRant
“I don’t know, man. I don’t know,” he told the site. “Those guys, the DCEU, they need to decide if they think that they’re better than television or if they want to participate. Because I get mixed messages, which to me just signals that, I don’t know. You guys do your own thing. We did our thing. I wish everyone nothing but the best. I want nothing more than amazing movies, but right now, they need us a lot more than we need them.
“I am a custodian for Oliver Queen, and [Grant Gustin] is a custodian for Barry Allen in the same way that… look, I don’t think anyone’s asking Tom Welling how he feels about who’s going to play the new Superman. Now, I get the proximity and stuff like that, but there will be another Oliver Queen. There will and it’ll be new and cool and exciting and however much the internet hates it is probably a direct indication as to how good it’s going to be.
“You’ve got to remember that these people aren’t picked at random. Very, very smart people think long and hard about how they’re going to go about this, and I’m sure that whoever they pick, if in fact they do, maybe they don’t care about the character, I don’t know, will do an amazing job.”

4. ‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’ Has Scene Created By 14-Year-Old School Boy | Deadline
Preston Mutanga, a 14-year-old boy, enjoys posting stuff online like many young people.
But Mutanga is genuinely using that gift, unlike the majority of youngsters his age. He made a Lego recreation of the first Across the Spider-Verse trailer and then got a rather strange invitation. To contribute to the actual film, he was asked.
According to a recent article in The New York Times, the movie’s production team contacted him. Due to their prior experience as The Lego Movie’s directors, writers-producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller had already planned a Legos scenario. serendipity follows.
The project could only be started by Mutanga after completing his schoolwork on school nights, as agreed by his parents.
Gisele Mutanga, Preston’s mother, told the Times, “I know Preston has a gift that was given to him by God, and once we identified that he had that gift, all we could do as parents was to nurture it and let him fly.”
“The Lego Movie is inspired by people making films with Lego bricks at home,” According to Lord, who spoke to the Times. “That’s what made us want to make the movie. Then the idea in Spider-Verse is that a hero can come from anywhere. And here comes this heroic young person who’s inspired by the movie that was inspired by people like him.”
5. ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Is Getting Some Emmy Buzz | TrekMovie
Next Monday, on June 15, voting for the Emmy nominations will begin, and some observers of the business are speculating that Star Trek: Picard might receive some attention. While Star Trek programs frequently receive nominations in the “Creative Arts” categories (makeup, hair, visual effects, etc.), the franchise has had less success when it comes to winning major Emmy awards. Jonathan Frakes, who played Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation, believes that this year might be different. He told ScreenRant: “TNG was the only Star Trek series to get the best drama nomination back in 1994. Maybe Picard will be considered. Maybe lightning will strike twice… It would be a great way to finish things up. Get Patrick a nomination, get the show nominated. It’d be just brilliant.”
