Jared Leto’s portrayal of the Joker might have been divisive for the fan community…but for DC and Warner Brothers it was good enough for a second round. Leto first played The Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad and promptly stole every scene he was in. This is one of two Joker films looking to start production in the next year or so. The DCEU is starting to get as crowded as the MCU.
Lex Luthor, Starro, heck… .even Ultra-Humanite! The Justice League has a long list of dastardly villains and nefarious nemeses but the only one that has come close to defeating Earth’s greatest (DC Comics) heroes is a little bit of hair on Superman’s lip. Well, that’s what the internet wants you to believe at least.
Yes, I am sure by know you have heard the whole torrid tale of Henry Cavill‘s $25 million dollar mouth brow. Reportedly (if you scan the headlines that have been trending for the past few days) this is the latest in a long line of doom and gloom rumors surrounding this fall’s DC Extending Universe epic team-up movie, Justice League, surely meant that the production was in turmoil… Okay, maybe not so much. Superman (AKA: Cavill) took to social media to make the following comment. (more…)
Warner Bros. has confirmed today that their next film to be shot for the DC Extended Universe will be none other than Shazam! Let’s not forget that Justice League is currently wrapping up its post-production while Aquaman is still filming so we won’t be seeing an adaptation of Shazam! on the screen just yet. The film is currently scheduled for a release in 2019.
If you had predicted that the highest grossing film of the summer blockbuster season was going to be a DC film, you might have been laughed at. Sure, the films of the newly minted DC Extended Universe are big box office draws, but in a year where we have already had heavy hitters like the Fate of the Furious, Logan, and of course Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, it seemed unlikely that a DC film would rack up the charts. That was before Wonder Woman.
Now before you start desperately trying to invent transdimensional travel to find which wonderful alternate timeline lucked out with a mid-90’s Batman v Superman staring John Cusack and Bruce Willis, it turns out the following trailer is actually the masterwork of YouTuber Frank Ireland (under the name ChiefBrodyRules.)
Ireland really did an amazing job of this, extra points too for casting Denzel Washington as Commissioner Gordon. Check it out!
A few days back Heroic Hollywood‘s head honcho, Umberto Gonzalez, revealed that a new intro for the DC Extend Universe will debut before Wonder Woman (he was asked about it on twitter and he replied “CONFIRMED! It’s ?????” so yes there is a new intro and I am guessing 5 fires is a good thing? Bad? Should someone dial 9-1-1?) Now just hours away from the early screenings of the new DCEU film a it has apparently leaked online. (more…)
We have less than three weeks before the release of Wonder Woman, the DC Extended Universe’s (DCEU) first female solo comic movie (and in fact, the first female-centric superhero movie in general). Even with Wonder Woman not out already, Warner Bros is already looking forward to their future films they have on the horizon. At least two of those will feature female heroines. As expected, we will be seeing a sequel to Wonder Woman. In addition, Joss Whedon will direct a Batgirl film.
We’ve known for a very very (very) long time that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (famously from Fast and Furious and infamous for The Tooth Fairy,) will star as the immortal Egyptian anti-hero in the someday coming
Captain Marvel Shazam/Black Adam movie that is apparently still someday coming, but who’d be playing the good guy that the former wrestler turned actor’s bad guy? Well Mr. The Rock Johnson, who is also reportedly producing the film, did give a not so subtle hint to We Got This Covered on who he’d want to see suited up as the scarlet draped acronym powered hero. (more…)
With the countdown to the film’s release on now (and the marketing finally starting to pick up the pace,) star Gal Gadot premiered the final trailer for Wonder Woman at the MTV Movie and TV Awards tonight. Will the next film in the DC Extended Universe be the godsend the Warner Bros./DC Films franchises are hoping for? Can the first female lead superhero movie live up to the hype and do the Themysciran princess justice? Well, a smart person would wait to make an informed decision by watching the movie first, but for that you have to wait till June 2nd.
Anyway, here’s that final trailer: (more…)
If you’ve been wondering why Wonder Woman, the forth coming Warner Bros. movie featuring not only the 75 year old character’s first big screen solo effort but also arguably the biggest female lead superhero film ever (sorry 2005’s Elektra,) seems to be a little light in the promotional department well you are not alone. It really does feel like the film is getting less attention marketing wise than the previous DCEU outing, the much loved and maligned Suicide Squad, or even Justice League which doesn’t come out till this November.
Well, with a little over a month away till the Themyscira Princess’ movie hits theatres, the latest episode of FOX’s Gotham dropped a new TV spot for the film. (more…)
