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.
With a full fledged sequel to Zack Snyder‘s 2013 Man of Steel (reportedly) back on the DC Extended Universe’s ever fluctuating film slate, the assumption was that Zack would be back to bring the next Superman solo movie to the big screen. Well, that might not be the case. Collider is reporting that ‘sources’ close to the Warner Bros. Superhero films are saying that the top choice is for another director to helm a second outing for the Man of Tomorrow (in the current franchise.) (more…)
This June a legend 75 years in the making arrives on the big screen. The Amazonian warrior princess Wonder Woman is set, if the hype is to be believed, to conquer the box office. The latest trailer custom designed to designed to whip that hype up into a frothy fervor debuted tonight, taking Diana from a little princess to the warrior destined to defend the world. (more…)
Other than last years Comic-Con teaser/sizzle reel and a couple of officially released images, things have been kind of quiet on the forthcoming big screen debut of The Justice League. With the film knuckle deep in post-production, director Zack Snyder has released one of his patented “we making a movie” behind the scenes stills of someone hard at work color processing a scene. Of course that scene shows off Batman mid being all Batman-y. Classic Zack, amiright? (more…)
With production set to start on Aquaman this summer the gentle tide of information on the DCEU film is slowly starting to roll in. The films star, Jason Momoa, took a break from his grueling (most likely trident centric) preparations to talk with Digital Trends.
Fans and detractors have spent decades making jokes at the expense of the King of the Seven Seas, how did Momoa approach playing the Justice League’s monitor duty marathon champion and chief fish translator? (more…)
When he first was announced to be Batman, the Internet violently reacted to Ben Affleck. Fans thought that he was going to be the worst part of Batman v Superman. However, he turned out to the best part of the movie and gave us a very strong Batman. Although the movie wasn’t a critical hit, fans were excited for this new take on the caped crusader.
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…)
Last summer it was unofficially announced that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was locked into play super villain Black Adam in an adaptation of Shazam! based on the classic DC superhero. Unofficially, meaning Shazam! was not, at the time, listed as part of DC/Warner Bros. slated of upcoming movies. Everything regarding a Shazam! movie was coming straight outta The Rocks mouth, with the larger than life action star voicing his excitement for the role, that he’s had multiple talks with the studio, and that they almost rolled him out to announce a Shazam! movie at San Diego Comic Con 2015 but backed out last minute. It’s been discussed that Shazam! and other DC superheroes that have been sitting in the Warner Bros. bullpen had been waiting on reception/performance of Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad. With the success, or, not so successful (according to critics) recent DC films, people are unsure of where to stand in their views of the DCEU future. It has been confirmed, however, that a Shazam! movie is moving forward and will, in fact, take continuity within the other DCEU films! (more…)
DC’s ambition to craft a full-blown cinematic universe immediately after Man of Steel hasn’t exactly been working out for them. Both Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad, two films fans insisted would improve upon Man of Steel, fared even worse with critics and audiences. As of right now, a combination of studio interference and bad creative decisions are causing an unfortunate cycle for the DCEU. (more…)
You might think that being the guy that helped guide Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy to two-and-a-half billion dollars at the global box office might buy you a little slack, but that seems to not be the case for Charles Roven. Roven, who was the producer of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel, and Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, is reportedly the latest casualty in the studio shake-up at Warner Bros. after the less than uproarious reaction to the official launch of the DC Comics Extended Universe. He will be taking a step back to take on a more overseer role for the DCEU films. (more…)
