There were lots of articles that took speculation and reports that Elijah Wood and Orlando Bloom were in talks to reprise their respective Lord Of The Rings role in The Hobbit as fact that they were returning, but I did apparently miss this report that Wood’s reps have confirmed the actor is confirmed “to star”:
All the major networks appear to have passed up David E. Kelley’s spec script for a modern take on Wonder Woman, and it appears unlikely anyone else will pick it up due to the expected costs. Deadline has the best analysis as to why each likely passed on it. ABC’s parent Disney now owns Marvel, while Wonder Woman is a DC Comics product, which is owned by Warner Bros. – but CW, jointly owned by CBS and WB, couldn’t afford it. It isn’t dead yet though, but in cold storage – Kelley could thaw it out a later time when the situation improves.
