J.J. Abrams confirmed that the Star Wars: Episode VII script is finished, and that he’s meeting with actors, including Breaking Bad‘s Jesse Plemons.

Director Zack Snyder’s untitled Batman-Superman epic starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill has moved to May 6, 2016, more than nine months later than originally planned.
