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 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.

Stephen Amell Confirms He Had Justice League Talks; Teases Next DC Character to be Mentioned on ‘Arrow’

- 01-22-14Comics, TV Posted by Sarah Moran


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.

If you’re not going to have your fill of The Flash by the time he spins off from The CW’s Arrow, then you’ll have plenty more to cheer about come 2015. (more…)
