The Long Halloween
is a two-part film, and its’ first half will debut this spring or summer. There have been no reports made for the second part of the movie. Smallville
star Jensen Ackles will portray Batlman in the movie, and the rest of the cast includes Josh Duhamel as Harvey Dent, B illy Burke as James Gordon, and Troy Baker as Joker.Fans haven’t seen Rivera appear in television or film since her role in Step Up: High Water
in 2018. She is best known for her role in Glee
from 2009-2015. Though an unfortunate circumstance to see her final performance posthumously, it is refreshing to hear her talents onscreen for the last time.
Rivera sadly passed last July as a result of a drowning accident after she and her son Josey rented a boat at Lake Piru in Southern California. The boat was long overdue to be returned when the lake’s staff discovered Rivera’s son asleep aboard the boat. The star’s body was found five days later, and reports believe the actress died saving her son, who is now 5 years old.
Rivera’s former Glee costars will honor her at the 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards on April 8. Glee actors Amber Riley, Jane Lynch, Jenna Ushkowitz, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Chris Colfer, Darren Cris, Jacob Artist, Vanessa Lengies, Alex Newell, Harry Shum Jr. and Becca Tobin will appear in the awards tribute to recognize Rivera and her groundbreaking character Santana. The special tribute aims to pay homage to LGBTQ teens and Rivera’s character as this is the 10th anniversary of Santana’s coming out on the show.
