Whether you like it or not, the world of Internet journalism is one that demands you stick your nose where it doesn’t rightly belong. After all, how are we going to learn about all those rumors and spoilers if someone doesn’t go out and gather the info? While this does lead to some degree of anger from spoiler-hating fans (myself included) and production companies in general (re: the “Star Wars Freakout” incident), it’s just a fact of the modern age. Now, some nosey journalist may have just stumbled upon some interesting information regarding the Warner Bros. casting of the Justice League film, including the main evil-bad-guy. Scroll on to see the three names he discovered. (more…)
Recently, Nerd Bastards’ own Jason Tabrys discussed whether or not toy tie-ins to blockbuster movies are still relevant. Jason landed somewhere in the middle on whether or not that’s a good or bad thing, but toys and action figures are still a valuable side of the business regardless of what Jason Tabrys thinks. (JK, love that guy!) Anyway, in toy business meets show business news today, Warner Bros has announced that they’ve renewed their 15 year deal Mattel in a new multi-year contract. (more…)
DC and Warner Bros are still playing major catch-up with Marvel Studios but it seems like they are diving headfirst into the future of their superhero films.
If a new report is to be believed, DC and WB have a huge slate of films planned, starting with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. What follows that wildly anticipated film? A whole lot, including Shazam, Wonder Woman and even a Green Lantern and Flash team-up film.
That’s quite an undertaking, DC. Let’s take a look at how it’s laid out. (more…)
Though most involved in the production of the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice flick are keeping tight-lipped about what to expect, it always seems as if movie-making geek guru Kevin Smith has some sort of inside track on the entire thing. Thankfully for the fans, he’s not quite as quiet as the rest of them (or is being specifically contracted by the studio to leak selective information?). The latest bit of news to come out of the man’s mouth involves Warner Bros./DC’s plans to turn Batman v Superman into a fully-fledged franchise mega-builder. Read on for the info. (more…)

If you thought the just-announced Justice League movie was the pinnacle of DC movies then you were wrong. Nope, Justice League might just be the very beginning.
If a new report is true, Warner Bros. is diving headfirst into the DC movie game. How many more comic book films based on DC properties are they planning? Rumor has it nine projects are in development. That’s right, nine. I swear to God, if Martian Manhunter isn’t one of them…
This Just In: The sun is round, people get easily offended on the internet, and there will be a Justice League movie following Batman and Superman: Friendship is Magic; this according to The Wall Street Journal, the acknowledged primary source for nerd news.
To direct Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavil), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and all the other eventual members of the Justice League (who will play Snapper Carr?!?!), Warner Bros. will once again turn to Zack Snyder, the man behind both the Man of Steel and its upcoming sequel as they hope to release the Justice League: Rise of the Superfriends as soon as 2018. (more…)
A short while back, actress Gal Gadot confirmed that she had been signed up to play the iconic character of Wonder Woman in more films than just the 2016 Batman vs. Superman flick. And while she avoided detailing the exact scope of her contract, it has now come to our attention that there are very specific films that Warner Bros. is looking towards with regards to her involvement. Apparently, after Batman vs. Superman is over, she shall, if the studio continues to pursue its super hero movie barrage, be getting a spot in the Justice League film as well as a solo Wonder Woman flick. Read on for more. (more…)
Only yesterday we, and most of the nerdosphere, ran with a story from Fandango claiming Arrow star, Stephen Amell had been in discussions about appearing in Warner Bros.’ eventual Justice League movie. Later on Facebook, Amell made it clear that notion was utter “bullshit”. (more…)
Arrow is DC Comics’, Warner Bros.’, and the CW’s surprise hit. It’s managed to not only please comic fans and the CW’s teen audience alike, but also reinvent the emerald archer for a whole new generation. Green Arrow, or simply The Arrow as he’s now known, has almost the same name recognition as DC’s biggest hitters, Batman and Superman, and that’s all thanks to Arrow and its star, Stephen Amell. In a couple of recent interviews, Amell confirms he did have “studio level” talks about appearing in WB’s eventual Justice League movie and that another of DC’s famous characters will get name-dropped in an upcoming episode.
