The first concerns what some believe to be the new look that WB will be giving Aquaman, while the other suggests that Zack Snyder was already paving the way for Aquaman’s appearance back when he made Man of Steel. Read on for the latest unconfirmed speculation. (more…)

Some may be disappointed that Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic series isn’t getting a proper television series (instead being regulated to a 2-hour movie), but it looks like one of Morpheus’ co-stars is getting to move to the small screen instead. You may remember him from the ‘Season of Mists’ story arc (Sandman issues #21-28), though he has been present within the DC universe in one form or another since as far back as the early 60s. His name is Lucifer and this fallen angel is now the subject of a new pilot being produced for Fox. (more…)

Jesse Eisenberg Talks About Creating a “Real Psychology” For Lex Luthor in ‘Batman v Superman’

There are few things that have ever set the internet on fire like the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman in WB’s upcoming Batman v. Superman.  The ire expressed by millions was almost painful and a true indication of just how attached some fans are to their vision of the characters that mean so much to them.  After Affleck, the announcement of Jesse Eisenberg landing the role of supervillain Lex Luthor was almost lost in the shuffle for many when, really, this was the news that should have affected fans even more than Affleck’s Batman.  However, some recent remarks Eisenberg made to Total Film may give some credibility to Zack Snyder’s vision of the DC Cinematic Universe moving forward.

Is The DC Cinematic Universe Following a “No Joke” Policy?

There is no doubt that there are plenty of differences between the movies that Marvel continues to pump out and the movies that WB/DC continues to give audiences.  One of the biggest differneces, of course, is the tone of these movies.  While Marvel loves to give fans some laughs with their superhero action, DC prefers to keep things a bit darker, and for the most part any laughs that come from the audience are almost ironic in response to what’s going on in the film itself (“Want to see a magic trick?”).  If you follow the comic books released from each of the publishers, you may even believe you understand why. A new rumor, however, may give us a better answer to why the DC Cinematic Universe seems so depressing. (more…)

Jason Momoa is Tired of Hearing About Aquaman

As someone who’s a part of Hollywood, Jason Momoa obviously has some thoughts on the industry. It also seems he’s not terribly afraid of voicing his discontent, especially when it comes to his as yet unconfirmed role as Aquaman vastly overshadowing his recent film Road to Paloma. Momoa not only starred in Road to Paloma, but directed it as well, obviously making it more of a personal investment than his rumored role as Aquaman. But fans just don’t seem to care all that much, which is what prompted him to take to Instagram and post the below picture:  (more…)

Clancy Brown Cast In ‘The Flash’

When you tell most people that Clancy Brown has been cast in anything, they’ll probably be like “who?” Then you show them a couple legendary movie role pics and everybody’s all “Oh yeah, that dude.” The 55 year-old actor has built his career around supporting superstars, always the “top kick.” He’s one of those go-to guys for when you need a brusk jerk giving orders. Well, now the ‘Sleepy Hollow’ actor has been tagged for Flash duty, playing a part described as “a tall and imposing man, with a face carved from years of duty.” Seen that before, as the voice and character performer has cashed a lot of checks from playing parts fitting that description. If anyone still has no idea who I’m talking about, let’s get a reminder of just who this guy is and find out what he’s doing on ‘The Flash.’ (more…)

As excited as everyone is for the new NBC series, Constantine, the one question that has been on many minds is how this new show will affect Guillermo del Toro’s long awaited Justice League Dark movie.  This is a valid concern, considering John Constantine is a key, founding member of the team.  Well, the ever-busy filmmaker has finally addressed this question.

One of the more interesting topics of gossip going into 2015 had revolved around a cinematic showdown between Disney/Marvel’s Captain America 3 and Warner Bros./DC’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Both films were to face head-to-head and compete for box office supremacy in sharing an initial release date May 6th, 2016. Believing in their brands, and tuning into a massive stock in interest amongst eager fans, as well as taking into consideration an already loaded summer movie schedule, both studios stayed firm to their planned release. The titans of industry were, up until recently, locked in an eternal game of “chicken”, with neither Studio wanting to budge. Some people have called it a pissing match, a duel of egos. While insiders will tell you that’s hardly the case at all. Truth be told, there is a science and business to release dates. But, for the sake of fun, watching these two studios stare each other down had left curious fans wondering how it would all play out.

Well my friends, the war is over. One studio has caved while the other stands tall pounding its chest and letting out a roar of victory. (more…)
