Zack Snyder Talks About Family Tragedy, Steps Down From 'JL'

We were very sad to hear about Zack Snyder's recent family tragedy today. After his daughter's death in March, the Justice League director is now speaking publicly about his loss. Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter that he and his wife are stepping away from the film, to focus on healing their family. Director Joss Whedon will take over filming of some additional scenes in England this summer, and finish editing the movie that is still set for a November 17 release.

Read the rest at The Hollywood Reporter.

The director's colleagues at Warner Bros. have been expressing their sympathy on social media, along with others who know and have worked with Zack and his wife.

We can't help but think that with all Zack had going on these last few months, he still wished Henry a happy birthday and tried to be there for the fans as he continued his work on Justice League.

Please join us in sending good thoughts his way.

Fans Share Their 'Durrell Challenge' Experience and Pics

We're starting the week with new photos from The Durrell Challenge that you have been sending in, along with your experience after meeting Henry.

This is Michaela's second trip to Jersey, and here's what she had to share:

It's the very first time I do this but I just wanted to share my challenge experience (I know it's already a week ago but I just returned back home yesterday):

What a fantastic day *beautiful weather *lovely people *Henry!!!*

It was my second time at the challenge: last year supporting this wonderful cause as a route marshal and this time running my first ever 13K. I really enjoyed it and I have to say a big THANK YOU to all the people at the course who were supporting us runners in an incredible way.

And of course not forgetting Henry, who really managed to join the challenge despite his busy schedule at the moment AND even took the time for photos being as kind and nice as ever. So here is mine.

Thanks to him I got to know the important work they do at Durrell and I am glad to be a part of it!

Hope to be back next year!

Greetings from Germany


Lisa Marie Beattie was also at the challenge. She sent us her photo with Henry, along with a brief comment that says it all. 

"Had an amazing day at Jersey and only went and met Superman!" 

We love hearing from you, thanks so much everyone.

Don't miss the rest of the coverage from Jersey (1/2/3/4/5), including our interview with Henry. He talks about what's next for him as ambassador for Durrell, favorite snack at Jersey Zoo and more!

The Durrell Challenge: Superhero Stroll Winner Meets Henry

"My daughter Lillian on the left with the 'S' on her t-shirt, won the Durrell Superhero Stroll competition to meet Henry."

Congratulations Lillian!

Kirby Hockenhull shared her photos with us, after her daughter won the chance to take a pic with Henry after participating in the Superhero Stroll.

The event made its debut at Jersey Zoo last Sunday, as part of The Durrell Challenge.

We had the chance to ask Henry last weekend what it meant for him to have children look up to him, as they participated in the Superhero Stroll:

"It's not about how it feels with kids looking up to me, of course it's an enormous honor. But it's the position of responsibility and the opportunity for me to be able to have an effect on kids and things which they may want to learn about. So, if they can gain an education from this and have a fun day out as well.. fantastic, that's a win."  

Catch everything else from The Durrell Challenge in our wrap. Thanks Kirby!

'Mission: Impossible 6' Update: Last Days In Paris

Director Chris McQuarrie has been posting a lot of updates from Paris, as he gets ready to wrap filming in that city that he's mentioned he truly enjoys.

A post shared by Christopher McQuarrie (@christophermcquarrie) on

While we're not sure if Henry is done with his work there (he was last spotted arriving on set Wednesday), filming has continued through the weekend.

A huge thanks to the cast and crew for their updates, and to the photographers who captured some of the action on the Paris sets.

As filming shifts to its next location, Tom Cruise has left to promote The Mummy. Keep checking back for production updates, as we follow the excitement leading up to the Mission: Impossible 6 release next July.

Henry Back In Paris, For More 'Mission: Impossible 6' Filming

Henry took a short break from filming Mission: Impossible 6 over the weekend, to host and participate in The Durrell Challenge in Jersey. But now he's back in Paris!

He was spotted by photographers outside the latest M:I6 set last night, for a scene that reportedly involved Vanessa Kirby.

Filming in France is about to wrap, but there's no word yet when the cast and crew will head to their next location. Earlier this week, The New Zealand Herald published the first pictures of a Mission: Impossible 6 set going up in that country. Filming is also expected to take place in London and India.

Keep checking back for production updates.

UPDATE: Director Chris McQuarrie broke the news on twitter, that Angela Bassett has joined the cast of M:I6. Deadline reports that she'll play the head of the CIA. 
McQuarrie and cinematographer Rob Hardy have also been sharing some cool behind the scenes pics from this past week, so check them out on their IG profiles.

M:I6 Location Taking Shape, Black Adam Ready To Fight Supes, Nomis Flashback

Today we have several updates on Henry's projects, so let's get right to it.

The New Zealand Herald has just published the first pictures from what's expected to be a filming location for Mission: Impossible 6. The paper says the buildings are going up in that country's Rees Valley. See the rest in their post.

Filming in Paris is in its last days (latest spoilery scene involving Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson), and Henry hasn't been seen on set since right before he went back to Jersey to participate in The Durrell Challenge. Look for updates as we get them.

Moving on to rumorland, the internet has been abuzz today about alleged Justice League reshoots. Here's the scoop from The Wrap, which does mention some scheduled pickups this summer. No word on whether that would include Supes.

In the meantime, Dwayne Johnson who is DC's Black Adam is ready to go up against Superman, and confirmed to Fandango "that's in the cards." All we have to say is.. BRING IT.

Finally, it seems like forever since Henry was in Winnipeg filming Nomis but it's only been a couple of months. This past weekend Kaiya shared this flashback of her mom with Henry. She was part of the Canada crew that worked with him during filming. Great shot!

Exclusive: Our Chat With Henry At 'The Durrell Challenge'

It's been such an exciting time here at HCN, thanks to Henry's busy filming schedule. But he still managed to make it back home to Jersey, to once again take part in The Durrell Challenge. We had the chance to catch up with him to talk about the 13K run, preparing for it, why your support means so much to him (yes, he reads your comments on his Instagram), and even his M:I6 moustache!

You can catch everything else from The Durrell Challenge in our wrap.

Henry's fundraising page will continue taking donations, with all money going to helping Durrell continue its animal conservation work around the world.

It's nice to see Supes again!.. not too long now before he makes his triumphant return in Justice League.

Awesome weekend that was certainly full of many firsts. I'm glad that my first ever trip to Europe could be in support of such a great cause as @thedurrellchallenge. When I first heard about this charity I loved that it not only supports the conservation of wildlife, but also the fact that it is truly a cause that brings all kinds of people from all over the world together - many I was fortunate enough to meet at the event. On top of all of that I had the pleasure of briefly meeting @henrycavill, the race ambassador, whose kindness, down-to-earth demeanor, and professionalism made the event that much more enjoyable. I'm glad I went on this adventure to experience and do something good. Definitely one for the books, and memories that will stay with me forever ๐Ÿ˜Š#wildlifeconservation #durrellchallenge2017 #cavillconservation #henrycavill #adventure #domoreofwhatyoulove #stopdreamingandstartdoing #ifnotnowwhen

The top Durrell Challenge fundraiser, Paula Morrell, got to spend some extra time with Henry and received some really cool gifts.

Young fans also participated in the Superhero Stroll.

And then it was time for the Justice League premiere raffle!

We have more to share with you, including our interview with Henry (UPDATE: It's in! WATCH), so stay tuned for that. And remember you can still contribute to his fundraising page. Let's do this again next year!

A huge thanks to @primula87_tmblr, Nella and Elizabeth for all your help today.
