Will Poulter will reportedly no longer be starring in Amazon’s upcoming Lord of the Rings series.
Reported by Deadline, Will Poulter has left the long-gestating Lord of the Rings series on Amazon Prime Video due to scheduling conflicts. Amazon had never confirmed Will Poulter for the unknown role in Lord of the Rings but he had been set to star in the show since September.
Will Poulter, who recently starred in Midsommar, was unable to stay on with the Lord of the Rings series due to Amazon’s recent production schedule shit. With Amazon renewing Lord of the Rings for a second season, the show is set to go on a 4-5 month hiatus after filming the first two episodes from the first season. This hiatus will allow the Amazon show to map out and write the second season scripts for Lord of the Rings. This shift in production schedule has made it impossible for Will Poulter to stay on for the Amazon series.
Unfortunately, we have no idea as to who Will Poulter would have been playing in the Lord of the Rings series on Amazon. Seeing as the show is still in the pre-production phase, we’re sure we’ll find out who exactly he was meant to play as the television drama begins filming.

New ‘Titans’ Photos Show Off Aqualad And The Original Team
DC Universe has released eight brand new images from the upcoming fourth episode of the second season of Titans entitled, "Aqualad".
"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.
These new images give fans a new look at Drew Van Acker as Aqualad as well as a couple of new looks at the original team united together for action. In particular, we get our best look at how the Aqualad suit translates onscreen in live-action form.

They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl.
