Tilda is apparently set to play Strange's immortal mentor The Ancient One.

The character is traditionally depicted as an old bearded man, but after they couldn't find the right fit, Marvel decided to cast a wider net and go with a bolder choice!

Innerestingly, this will be the SECOND time Tilda has taken on the role of a previously male character in a comic book movie; in 2005 she played the archangel Gabriel in the Keanu Reeves version of Constantine.

Doctor Strange is directed by Scott Derrickson and is set to hit theaters November 4, 2016.

Looks like our casting bet was a sure thing!

But according to Latino Review, this thing is a done deal! All there is left is to sign the papers and make the announcement!

If the baby-faced 18-year-old really is our high school aged Peter Parker, we're guessing Marvel will make it official with the quickness.

Spidey will make his movie debut in Captain America: Civil War, which has already begun filming!

Filed under: TV NewsLena DunhamAllison Williams

no title

There may still be five more episodes of The Simpsons this spring, but we're already looking forward to next season's premiere!

That's because when the show's 27th year starts up, the cast of HBO's Girls will be there as guest stars!

[ Related: Perez Hilton Cameos On An Episode Of The Simpsons! ]

Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, and Zosia Mamet will all be joining Homer and his family for the first episode of Season 27.

So far all we know about the episode — entitled Every Man's Dream — is that Homer and Marge will file for divorce (OH NO!), which will lead the patriarch of the FOX family to start dating Lena's pharmacist character.

While the Girls creator will be heavily featured in the premiere, her three co-stars each lent their voices to at least few lines, so it's practically a reunion!

Ch-ch-check out the pics (above) to get your first look at the animated Girls.

Will U be tuning in this Fall??

Filed under: Film Flickers

The Suicide Squad has found its villain!

It looks like this actor is making the jump from one comic book universe to another!!!

The upcoming DC flick Suicide Squad has apparently found it's villain, as Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has reportedly been cast to play Killer Croc, a popular foe of Batman!

If you're wondering why this is such a big deal, it's probably because the 47-year-old actor was previously in Thor: The Dark World, meaning he's making the jump from Marvel to DC!

If all of that isn't exciting enough for Adewale, he will also be appearing in the upcoming season of Game Of Thrones, although there's not much info on his character, Malko!

Is it just us, or does this guy have a knack for landing the most badass action roles ever??? Congrats, Adewale!
