Neil Gaiman is one of the most celebrated fantasy/fiction authors around at the moment, and several of his works have been turned into TV series and movies. For example there was the Stardust movie, the Coraline animated movie, American Gods, and more recently, Amazon picked up Good Omens (a book he wrote with Terry Prachett) and made that into a TV series as well.
The origin story of Batman’s nemesis, the Joker, has been shrouded in mystery for decades as there doesn’t seem to be a definitive story of how the Joker character came to be. As some of you might have heard, there is a standalone Joker movie in the works directed by Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix, and now its official teaser trailer has since been released.
Director Zack Snyder was set to direct the DCEU’s Justice League movie, and he did for a while, at least until a family tragedy struck where he was forced to take a break from work. He eventually handed the reins over to Joss Whedon where massive reshoots were made that affected the end result of the movie.
DCEU’s Suicide Squad had a lot of promise in its premise, but unfortunately the movie wasn’t particularly well-received when it was released. We know that a sequel is in the works but apparently it won’t be a direct sequel to the first movie. Instead it is expected to be a “total reboot” of Suicide Squad.
If you were hoping to see more of Jared Leto’s Joker character in a possible standalone movie, you might be disappointed to learn that according to a report from Forbes, those movies have been shelved. We had previously heard a report that a standalone Joker movie starring Jared Leto could be in the works, but it seems that it will no longer be the case.
Have you ever wanted to read all the comics you want without having to buy each and every issue? That’s what comiXology is hoping to entice readers with when they launched their comiXology Unlimited subscription service, which one could call the Netflix of comics. Now it looks like DC’s comics, or at least some of it, will be part of that subscription.
Following the critical success of the Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot, it didn’t come as a surprise that a sequel was greenlit. The movie was initially confirmed for a release on the 1st of November, 2019, but unfortunately it seems that the movie has since been delayed where it will now be released in the summer of 2020.
DC announced plans for a standalone The Flash movie several years ago, and the movie has been plagued with all kinds of problems since. Not only have we seen several directors drop out, but last year it was reported that the movie would have to be rewritten from scratch, thus delaying its release even further.
James Gunn is the director best known for helping to write and direct Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies. However as some of you might have heard, Gunn has since been let go by Disney following controversial tweets that he made a decade ago, resulting in the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie being put on hold.
It’s safe to say that the first Green Lantern movie was not the best superhero movie we’ve seen. Even its star, Ryan Reynolds (who has since had huge success playing as Deadpool), admitted as much. However it seems that the Green Lantern movie could be getting a reboot, and this time it could come with one of Hollywood’s biggest names attached to it.
Considering that Joss Whedon created Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it seemed like he would have been a good fit for Warner Bros. Batgirl movie, in which he was slated to write and direct the standalone film when he came on board the project back in 2017. Unfortunately it seems that will no longer be the case.
It seems like the developers at Rocket League love their crossovers because not only did they do a crossover with Nintendo by introducing Mario and Luigi themed cars, but the later DLC for the game will also see them team up with DC through the upcoming “DC Super Heroes” DLC pack.
Superhero comics and stories are meant to appeal to as many people as possible, although there are some titles and characters that are limited to older audiences. Marvel’s Deadpool is a perfect example and it is safe to say that it is one of the few “superhero” movies to get an R-rating. Turns out that despite the rating, the movie has gone on to do extremely well for itself.
Several days ago, Zack Snyder teased upcoming footage for the Batman V Superman movie. For those who can’t wait to watch the movie, you’re in luck as the additional footage has since been released. However, we should caution you that there will be spoilers in this footage as there is additional dialogue that we have not seen in previous trailers.
