Ladies and gentlemen, I have some Freddy Krueger news that kind of sucks.
We have social media to thank for the following news that confirms we will NOT be seeing Robert Englund portraying Freddy in any new Nightmare on Elm Street movies. Take a look at the tweet for yourself:
This is kind of a bummer for me, because he is still THE Freddy Krueger to me and he delivered the creepiest most nightmare-inducing performance as Freddy. In 2010's Nightmare on Elm Street, Jackie Earle Haley took the role on and did a suitable job. I just think bringing Englund back might have been epic.
Just remember, before [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) pitted two of the most badass superheroes against each other, New Line Cinema did so with two of the freakiest horror villains ever -- of course I'm talking about Freddy vs. Jason.
