DC Entertainment


What once seemed to be a pet project of Guillermo del Toro‘s has now become a full blown Warner Bros./DC Entertainment joint, and work on Justice League Dark is persisting despite del Toro bailing for other (greener?) pastures. Uber-producer Scott Rudin is now rallying the cause, and as Warner Bros. struggles to get original recipe Justice League off the ground – part one is due in theaters in 2017 – it seems that Dark is coming along with progress in the casting of this other League. Sources have leaked the names of three potential JL Dark members, as well as some additional casting details that might make you think this is really the League to watch in the coming months.

As the DC Superhero Girls theme song urges, “Get your cape on!”  Announced earlier this year, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have teamed up with Mattel, Random House Children’s Books, and LEGO to create a whole new universe centered around empowering young girls.  We hadn’t seen or heard very much since that initial announcement, but now, especially with today’s launch of the DC Superhero Girls website, the project seems to be on full-throttle.  According to USA Today, the franchise will be producing “toys, books, graphic novels, digital content, apparel and animation that tap into the current strength of superheroes and female empowerment in pop culture.” (more…)


Despite the fact that this whole DC Extended Universe began with 2013’s Man of Steel, the next phase of a solo Superman adventure seemed oddly an after thought during last year’s announcement of the DC Entertainment film slate through 2020. Sure, Supes is one-half of next year’s Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and he’ll almost certainly lead the two-part Justice League movie, but Man of Steel 2 or whatever it’s going to be called – well, “limbo” would be a fairly accurate description of its current status. But now we get word that the situation may be simpler, and the news from Warner Bros. is that if you’re holding your breath for the next Superman standalone, you should probably stop. (more…)

NBC Developing Work-Place Comedy Set in… The DC Universe?


Marvel Studios gets all the glamour with their movie series, but without a doubt, Warner Bros and DC Entertainment presently own the TV side of things. The upcoming television season will feature the return of Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, and iZombie, which will be joined by Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and eventually, Titans. Room to grow? Absolutely! In Hollywood, success breeds opportunity, so why would DC Entertainment stop at just seven series across four networks? To that end, some fascination news today. DC Entertainment has a pilot approved for production at NBC. The hook? It’s a single-camera, work-place comedy a la The Office. Color me intrigued… (more…)

Done Deal! Chris Pine is ‘Wonder Woman’s Steve Trevor


Even before they had the idea to create a great big interconnected universe of movies, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have been trying to crack the “Wonder Woman code.” It’s been start and stop for a long time at the studio as they’ve tried to develop a big screen Wonder Woman movie with a long line of various writers and directors each trying to do what shouldn’t be that impossible: make a gosh darn Wonder Woman movie! Well, here’s a positive sign. It seems like Gal Gadot now has a male lead and co-star for her first solo Wonder Woman adventure. Get ready Chris Pine, you’re about to beam up to Paradise Island. (Or possibly crash-land.) (more…)


Whatever happened to Michael Cera? He used to appear in two or three movies a year, but aside from the fourth season of Arrested Development and a memorable appearance in This is the End, he seems to have all but disappeared from the landscape. Appropriately enough, Cera’s next big role will only require his voice and not his actual person, and it will require him to team-up again with his Arrested Development uncle Will Arnett. What weird sort of project brings these two Canadian actors together again? Why it’s the LEGO Movie spin-off The LEGO Batman Movie, and Cera will play the Boy Wonder to Arnett’s Caped Crusader.

This past weekend at San Diego Comic Con, there was loads of insight into the new seasons of Arrow and The Flashcasting announcements, new costumes, sizzle reels, the works – but the treatment for one show was somewhat lighter by comparison. Sadly, there was no new footage from Legends of Tomorrow, perhaps because the show hasn’t started shooting yet, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t opportunity for more promotion. So let’s call this a remix. A very creative re-edit of the history of the DC Comics TV-Universe so far with a bit of that old comic book style thrown in. Green Arrow, the Flash, Atom, Firestorm and the rest of the gang are here to get you caught up on what happens Tomorrow. (more…)

SDCC15: ‘Suicide Squad’ Footage Description!


After attendees waited in line for hours and hours (or, in some cases, days and days), the Warner Bros. Pictures panel finally kicked off the Saturday Hall H programming at San Diego Comic-Con.  After so many hours of waiting, was the panel worth it? Oh, you betcha.  Of course, we cannot post a video of the footage (not that you would want to see this awesomeness on a cell phone video), but we can tell you that not only do we know a bit more about Suicide Squad – we are all in.
