Because super heroes make money, Warner Bros. is taking advantage of their relationship (i.e.: copyright contracts) with DC to produce as many super-powered television shows and movies as they can. They’ve done a damned fine job so far with Gotham, Arrow and The Flash. Now we’ll be seeing what may be the first modern, live-action series featuring an African-American hero with Static Shock.

Now, this is what it looks like to have some concrete casting information. Oliver Queen will once again be dealing with a rogue’s gallery regular, as longtime adversary Brick gets introduced to live action villainy. For those of us who have no idea who this guy is, Danny Brickwell was a gangster who saw prime opportunity in Star City’s temporary void of underworld bosses. While most of the shady characters around town saw chaos, Danny jumped at the chance to showcase his own brand of order, mostly through drug sale. This storyline took shape after the comic storyline ‘Green Arrow: City Walls’ and established Brick as a real problem for Arrow’s ample quiver of solutions. And bringing him to the small screen is an actor who is used to playing hard-to-kill characters. (more…)

While he may only “work in black and sometimes very, very dark grey,” the powers that be over at Warner Bros. want to capitalize on the Lego Batman’s incredible popularity in the LEGO Movie. Everyone loved that crazy guy, and not in the gritty, dark as all get out Batman we’ve known in comics and the big screen. It was more like Adam West and Christian Bale had a love child that sounded a hell of a lot like Will Arnett. Wanna know more details? (more…)

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…)

‘Harry Potter’ Director Signs Up for Potter Spin-off ‘Fantastic Beasts’

He may have spent over six years toiling on the final four Harry Potter movies, but British director David Yates is far from done with the magical world of J.K. Rowling. You may recall that in the works is a new spin-off trilogy based in the Harry Potter universe, but not based on any published Harry Potter materialCalled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the movie promises all the magic and wonder of the eight previous Harry Potter films but telling all new stories that don’t crossover with any characters we’ve already been introduced to. I suppose Warner Bros. plans to not just capitalize on the Harry Potter brand, but the knowledge and experience of the Harry Potter series’ most experienced director. (more…)

Don’t Worry, Warner Bros Has Plans for Harley Quinn

When Harley Quinn first appeared in the an early episode of Batman: The Animated Series called “The Joker’s Favor,” she was an instant hit with fans. Like a couple of aspects of TAS, Harley eventually made her way to the mainstream DC Comics universe where she has flourished, appearing in numerous comic book series, including her own solo book. So it should really come as no surprise that the character is so highly in demand for those working on DC properties in other media, like, say Arrow. But if you’re waiting for Stephen Amell’s archery-friendly vigilante to face off against Mr. J’s Girl Friday, you’re going to be sadly out of luck. (more…)
