    It sounds Fleming'esque (I mean partly it is obviously) At the very least sounds like the sort of title you could imagine them coming up with for a non Fleming Bond novel.

    I can just see the conversation between Tom Baker and Matt Smith now.
    "What do you think of the title?"
    "Which one? There appear to be two, Eclipse and Shatterhand."
    "But you see that's where everyone's mistaken. It isn't two separate titles, but rather one whole title. Shatterhand Eclipse. Now what do you suppose that means?"

    Surely it would be a conversation between Daniel Craig and Sean Connery? ;)

    I thought he played a compelling character in Mission Impossible 6. Cavil has the looks and the build, I wouldn't mind his casting.

    I'd imagined Jon Hamm as Superman, probably would've been better than Cavill.

    Oh, that is awesome! I love both of those shows (and I'm a really sad Fleabag is over) and she has really proved to me that she's a terrific writer. I'm very curious to see what she brings to the script.

    I also hope this leads to a role in the film itself. :D

    L3-37 was the best part of the movie.

    She's a great writer and exactly the kind of creative shot in the arm the franchise needs. So good on Craig.

    I just hope it's the same "script polish" Whedon gave Twister.

    If it's confirmed this is great news, as @CorporalClegg says, the writing on the franchise really needs something new!
