FEAR THE WALKING DEAD Episode 207 SHIVA Photos / Preview [Video]

We are already up to the mid-season finale of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 7 titled “Shiva”. We get to see some action as the shattering even from the previous episode kicks off this episode, trying hard not to spoil anything here. The “sneak peek” video ends with a very insane twist ending. I did not see that coming at all. The “Next On” video feels like an entirely different turn of events; this will be an eventful episode. This Fear the Walking Episode airs on Sunday, May 22, 2016, at 9:00 pm EST.

Dolph Lundgren as Cable in DEADPOOL 2!?

Dolph Lundgren as Cable in DEADPOOL 2!?

FOX and Marvel already greenlit Tim Miller‘s Deadpool 2 (2017) film, and they are playing with ideas for Cable as he will be a very important character in the Deadpool sequel. Dolph Lundgren chimed in an interview with Nerdist that he has not seen the first Deadpool (2016) movie yet but based on a picture he saw of Cable, he can definitely pull off the role. Curious what you think of this Deadpool casting news, I wouldn’t mind it but then again… He is not cast in the movie but was just toying with the idea of the Cable role; he did play Punisher in The Punisher (1989).
