With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set to kick off another flurry of superhero blockbusters (and possibly be the biggest/best yet if the early word is to be believed,) the films lead dancer/80’s music enthusiast, Chris Pratt, had a few things to say about what the other guys (Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Universe) are doing, and (spoiler) it kinda sounds like he might not be as critical as die hard fans might want him to be.
Yes, while the fan community seems to continue to divide, Star-Lord himself joins his GotG director, James Gunn (and arguably the majority of the movie going public,) in enjoying BOTH DC and Marvel. Pratt gave praise to the DCEU films while speaking with io9, granted he did have one very valid critique about one film in particular. (more…)
Batgirl could be flying on to the big screen in the near future and she might be doing so with another ginger fan favorite phenom at the helm. Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. and Joss Whedon, yes the Buffy The Vampire Slayer guy, are close to inking a deal to put him in the pilot seat. (more…)
The big DC Films team-up movie, Justice League, is set to drop a whole new trailer this upcoming Saturday (March 25,) so of course that means a galactic threat level hype machine is currently laying waste to social media across the globe that would leave Despero envious. From Twitter, to YouTube, to Facebook and beyond, Warner Bros. social media interns have been enduring the first 3 cords of The White Stripes ‘Icky Thump’ on repeat as each member of the team has been getting their own 20 second teaser and character poster.
Aquaman was up first, shortly followed by a few other teammates: (more…)
After a few months of wild speculation, sourceless rumors, and multiple postings of that same old ‘Sad Batfleck’ picture, we have an actual update on the semi-confirmed forthcoming Ben Affleck written-directed-staring solo Batman movie.
Matt Damon’s better half was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (Jan 9) promoting a sadly non-Batman related film, Live By Night (come on, the title is sooooo close,) and offered a brief statement on the status of the much-scrutinized DCEU production. (more…)
After just a little under six months of filming, principal photography on the Justice League movie recently completed and to commemorate the committing DC Comics premier super team to celluloid, director Zack Snyder tweeted out a sizzle reel. Clocking in at 90 seconds, the video showcases a bunch of behind the scenes shots and a few glimpses of new footage, all accompanied by the requisite Zack Snyder crunchy guitar riff because the 90s only end if you let it.
Heck, we even get a little taste of a certain man who is super. (more…)
Coming off the already exciting trailers for Wonder Women and Justice League (which looks so so good) Warner Bros rounded out their super hero flicks from Hall H with the final trailer for Suicide Squad. This movie has had the best editors and graphic artists. Every trailer, including this one, has been fun and clean. Though with 2 weeks out until the premier, all the footage they’ve been releasing lately has been awfully telling, fearing that the best moments have already been shown in the trailers and TV spots. Much like the problem with Batman v Superman’s feverish marketing, no one should have to go into this movie and have a check list of moments and feel like they’ve seen the whole movie. So while this final trailer is fun as hell, maybe reserve from watching it if you want to go into the movie with some fresh blissful ignorance. (more…)
It seems like nearly every week something new hits the web regarding the upcoming David Ayer film ‘Suicide Squad.’ From trailers, to a prequel comic book tie-in to the film, talks of solo spinoff movies, and even discussions on the significance of Jared Leto’s Joker’s tattoos. The latest from the marketing powerhouse that is Warner Bros./DC Films are solo character posters of the cast. These new artist renditions give us a couple of unique and catchy styles highlighting each member of Task Force X, the woman who assembled them (Amanda Waller), and of course The Joker. (more…)
Warner Bros. and DC Films know there’s a lot riding on ‘Suicide Squad.’ After the mixed reaction from moviegoers and execs not exactly thrilled about the box office results from ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,‘ the studio NEEDS this film to do well. A great opening weekend, some good word of mouth, and perhaps this (different kind of) superhero movie will revitalize the plans for the DC Extended Universe. If it doesn’t fare so well or flops, this would be another huge blow to DC in their attempt to compete with Marvel. But from early reviews, it appears this movie has the potential to get them back on track. (more…)
It seems that nearly every week or so we get updates regarding the upcoming ‘Suicide Squad‘ movie from Warner Bros./DC Films. Promotional material spotlighting the film are making the rounds. Talks have been circulating on some of the individual characters getting their own spin-off films. They’ve even shared with fans the lengths Jared Leto has gone to in becoming the Joker. The latest is in regards to the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) announcing that the David Ayer-directed film will be given the rating of PG-13. But from the sounds of it, they narrowly avoided an R rating.
We are only two months away from the release of DC Films/Warner Bros. feature ‘Suicide Squad.’ As fans wait in anticipation, the studio has been teasing the film through the various trailers they have released. As the debut nears, expect more promotional campaigns to hype up the opening. The most recent came in the form of a promotion with SPLAT hair dye, a company known for their wildly outrageous dye colors. As an added bonus with your hair coloring, a mini comic prequel was included entitled “Suicide Blonde” which features the backstory of The Joker (Jared Leto) and Harley Quinn’s (Margot Robbie) relationship.
