With Marvel Studios getting all the attention these days (you heard Spidey is coming back to Marvel, right?) We haven’t heard much from the DC camp. Sure, hearing about the casting announcements and rotations on the upcoming Suicide Squad movie (which is gonna a be nuts!) makes for a good proverbial snack, DC/Warner Bros. need to give something more. Well more they have given!
How about our first look at Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman from Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice? That ought to do, right? (more…)
It’s long been common knowledge around the Geek Train that Warner Bros. was putting together a live action ‘Teen Titans’ television show. Of course when producers get their hands on a piece of merchandise, they have to change things around, so none of the Titans will be teens at all. These adult heroes will be led by Robin and will feature a largely female cast from what we’re hearing through the grapevine. If you follow that vine long enough, you’ll land knee-deep in Nerdist country where Jessica Chobot reports on a leaked script of the pilot, and everything she knows about it. Well, now we know what she knows, and we’re gonna sing like birds. Birds Of Prey, that is. Hint, hint. Hawks and Doves, that is! Hint! Hint!
I’ve said too much… (more…)
There’s more to Aquaman than the hackneyed “he talks to fish” joke. He’s far cooler than most people ever give him credit for. He’s a born leader, handles hardships like a boss, and gets shit done. The moment the character grew a beard and jabbed a trident on the stub that was once his left hand, cemented him as a total bad-ass in my book. I mean seriously, why would anyone doubt a guy that has the potential to summon a Sharknado? Still, the vast majority of pop culture enthusiasts just think of him as that homoerotic water boy who rides giants seahorses.
While recent media outings like the DC Animated feature Justice League: Throne of Atlantis have tried to reintroduce the king of the 7 seas to some decent fanfare, Aquaman’s cool factor tows the line to a small (maybe not so small) pocket of fans who appreciate and understand him. It will be real interesting to see how the characters star meter rises (or falls) when Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa dons the scaly orange suit and raises the royal trident when he appears in Batman v Superman and the eventual Justice League movies and Aquaman standalone film.

With Warner Bros. set on quickly expanding their DC Cinematic Universe, it comes as no surprise that more news is starting to surface regarding the future of Guillermo del Toro‘s movie adaptation of Justice League Dark. Having managed to juggle his fantastically busy schedule; writing and handing in a finished screenplay to the suits at Warner just before Christmas, this is by no means a transient money-grabber for the ever-proverbial workaholic. Guillermo has been working on the project alongside the studio for many years now, and it seems that both parties want to knock things into gear–or at least kick-start the creative engine. With no solidified release date in sight yet, we have news on potential characters who could be set to feature in the dark superhero franchise. (more…)
Apparently Hollywood has been working on a remake of seminal holiday-horror classic Gremlins for years now. Perhaps my subconscious mind has switched to an autonomous mode of denial simply bypassing such desecrating thoughts, preventing a system overload after the deluge of information regarding Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters, which already melted my noggin. On the other hand, perhaps they’re just planning on remaking everything that has nostalgic value from the 80’s and it simply didn’t register in my brain amidst the copious other announcements of reboots of 80’s franchises. One thing is sure, nothing is sacred anymore, so you’re going to have to be prepared for the worst, because it seems originality has become somewhat less profitable these days. (more…)
This is a pretty wild rumor, in fact it’s a ridiculous and far “out-there” rumor to be precise. However, with Warner Bros. yet to comment, we can have a little fun with it. The rumor is regarding an image that appeared online on Friday that looks like it has come from promotional material for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. On the image, it has the movies coming in two parts, with Part I titled Enter the Knight, and going to theaters on October 23, 2015, and Part II, Dawn of Justice, due on the original release date, March 25, 2016.

The casting line-up for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie is looking pretty impressive thus far. We’ve got famous faces that range from Will Smith to Tom Hardy to Margot Robbie and some of our favorite villains will be making an appearance. But one name still remains stuck in the void – who shall play the Suicide Squad’s commander, Amanda Waller? Rumors are saying that it shall be Oscar-nominee and multi-award-winning actress Viola Davis. And while that rumor has yet to be confirmed officially, Davis has stepped up and spoken a bit about the potential for the role and what she’s doing to prepare. Read on to hear what she has to say.

Marvel may be out there releasing dates and information about their up and coming movies for the next 100 years, but DC and Warner Bros. have been mum about most of their newest summer blockbusters. So much so, that it looks like despite the big announcement about bringing her to the big screen, recently announced director Michelle Maclaren says Wonder Woman hasn’t even been given an official green light yet. (more…)
Some people may think of Aquaman as the lamest super hero in the Justice League line-up, but the actor slotted to play him – Jason Momoa – is looking to change that perspective. He’s been barred from speaking on it for a while now, but since the official announcement of his casting went through, he’s now free to drop some details. While chatting at the recent Comic-Con Experience in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the actor had plenty to say about his upcoming role, including a few tidbits about his contract as well as who he’d prefer to see sitting in the director’s chair for his solo flick. Scroll on for all the info. (more…)
A previous report that Christopher Nolan was being eyed to direct an adaptation of the popular Ernest Cline novel Ready Player One was only partially right. As it turns out, Nolan’s is one of a number of marquee filmmakers who are on the studio’s shortlist to make the movie version of the award-winning book. Warner Bros., who is developing the adaptation and, frankly, are hungry for a new franchise, see potential gold in an idea that’s been described as one part Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, one part The Matrix, and one part The Da Vinci Code. So who all is looking to be recruited? And is one of them ready to step into the world of Ready Player One? Buckle your seat belts, because there’s some pretty provocative names on the list. (more…)
