While promoting her upcoming film “Spy,” Rose Byrne talked to MTV about the ’80s fashion she’ll be rocking as CIA agent Moira MacTaggert in “Apocalypse.”

“I like the ’80s,” said Byrne. “There’s the high pant. I’ve got a bit of a great high pant thing happening. I like a strong shoulder. I’m not a fan of the weird negligee under the blouse look… There’s a bit of a high denim pant and James McAvoy has this incredible suit, it looks like he’s in Spandau Ballet. That’s pretty major… [Moira’s] got some cool looks.” You can see the interview below.

FANTASTIC FOUR

In an interview with ComicBook.com, “Ultimate Fantastic Four” writer Mark Millar shared his thoughts about the upcoming reboot.

“I’ve seen chunks of it but not the complete movie, and it’s looking good,” said Millar. “What I’m really excited for is to see how many people are surprised by it. I remember everybody bitching about ‘Fantastic Four’ for about six months, then the trailer came out and everyone is like, ‘this is really good.’ I think it’ll surprise people.”

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2

“Avengers” fans hoping to see one of the team’s most iconic villains in a Marvel Studios movie had better brace themselves for this news: Kang the Conqueror’s film rights are owned by 20th Century Fox, meaning he won’t be showing up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe any time soon.

The news broke as part of a Facebook question and answer session held by “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn. When asked if the time-traveling menace known as Kang would ever go head-to-head with Star-Lord and his pals, Gunn replied, “Shi’ar and Kang are both owned by Fox. All decisions about who is in GotG2 were made a long time ago.”

LUCIFER

One Million Moms, an organization with the mission of combating “negative influences” in entertainment media, has struck out against Fox’s upcoming series “Lucifer.” The group has launched a petition in hopes that they can persuade the network to cancel the show. The petition describes the show as “a new series which will glorify Satan as a caring, likable person in human flesh.”

“The series will focus on Lucifer portrayed as a good guy, ‘who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell,'” it continues. “He resigns his throne, abandons his kingdom and retires to Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals.” The website also cites “graphic acts of violence, a nightclub featuring scantily-clad women and a demon” as a cause for the petition, in that the show “is disrespecting Christianity and mocking the Bible.” At the time of this article, the petition has just over 5,000 signatures.
