After more than five years, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is ready to set sail again. The first teaser and poster for the fifth film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales debuted during last night’s Fear the Walking Dead but does not feature Johnny Depp’s famous Jack Sparrow character. Instead, the one minute, fifty second spot features Javier Bardem’s zombie-ish Captain Salazar asking for Sparrow with a simple message: “Find Sparrow and tell him… death will come straight for him.”

Justice League has wrapped filming in London, and to celebrate, Jason Momoa shared a shirtless picture of himself on Instagram, thanking the cast and crew but apologizing that he won’t be able to make the wrap party as he prepares for the North. Though filming has wrapped in London, it’s not the end of the shoot. Filming will continue in a more remote location in the Westfjords of Iceland.

Ever since Force Awakens came out, the whole crew has been refuting claims as to whom Snoke may be, but I would love to hear who you all want Snoke to be, and who you actually think he is.
