Fandom News (2)

Hi guys! Today I'm here with some more fandom news! This is a (semi)weekly feature where we round up some Fandom News we've seen around the internet.

First thing's first I'm the realest.
Rick Riordan has announced he is writing a new series titled Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, which is about Norse Mythology! The first book with be released in October 2015. The title will be published in the back of Blood of Olympus but on Goodreads it says that the title is The Sword of Summer. Maybe it isn't final? On Rick's blog post, he specifically said that the name Chase, is not a coincidence. So I'm already thinking up some theories. Perhaps Annabeth has a long lost brother? I don't think it's her kid because then kid would be named Magnus Jackson, so… Blood of Olympus published October 8th! You can read the first chapter here.

Some pretty cool stills from Mockingjay have just been released! Along with that, the first song from the Mockingjay soundtrack has been dropped! It's by Lorde and titled Yellow Flicker Beat. Listen to it here:

Have any of you read Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs? It's being turned into a movie and Asa Butterfield has been considered for lead! He'd stared in Ender's Game and The Invention of Hugo Cabret, and in Miss Peregrine's, he'd be playing Jacob Portman. Read about it here. The movie is expected to hit theaters March 4, 2016.

After all the success with The Maze Runner movie,  Aidan Gillen from Game Of Thrones has been added to the cast of The Scorch Trials. He'll be playing the antagonist! Read more here. Rosa Salazar from Insurgent has been added to the cast as well!

This isn't very book related, but Fandoms don't exclude! For all the X-Men fans here, you can watch some deleted scenes from Days of Future Past on Hypable!

Lionsgate is going to release five short films based off Twilight characters! Read more about it  here and here.

MINOR SPOILERS FOR THE SELECTION. For those of you who don't know, Kiera Cass is writing another two book in the Selection Series! One will be a novella bind up and the other one, titled The Heir takes place after America and Maxon get married. This has already been announced a while ago, but the gender of the baby they're having was announced on Epic Reads! You can watch Kiera's announcement video here and read some excerpts here.

That's it for now! Have you seen any Fandom related news around? Share with us in the comments!
