BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Just last week it was announced that a brand new documentary was in the works about Justice League: Mortal - the ultimately cancelled DC Comics blockbuster that was going to be directed by George Miller. Now, however, we have an extremely cool sneak peek at this project.
Nixed superhero mega-movie, Justice League Mortal, had big plans for 2009 with Mad Max mastermind, George Miller… until it all fell apart. Now, it seems that folks fascinated by the 86’d attempt are putting together a documentary film, illustrating what went wrong on this once-auspicious epic.
While there were previously some rumors, speculation and teasing that Dwayne Johnson may appear as Black Adam in a Warner Bros./DC film released prior to 2019's Shazam, nothing has thus far come to light to give fans any certainty. As we still can't etch it in stone, it now sounds a bit more promising that the highly-anticipated character may indeed pop up much sooner than we thought.
Joining me this week on the show is Cinema Blend’s own Sean O’Connell, and together we not only talk about the fresh new Aquaman look, but also exactly what Unite The Seven means both for and in the context of the DC Cinematic Universe. Hit the play button above!
As badass as Aquaman will look in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, it sounds he may not have much to do in the 2016 blockbuster compared to the other heroes.
In addition to leading the Aquaman solo film, Jason Momoa will also be one of the main members of the Justice League, which would be exciting for any actor, but the role is also important for another key reason.
We all know (or should know) by now that Fast and Furious and Transformers star Tyrese Gibson wants to be our new Green Lantern. The latest images he posted to Instagram, though, imply that he’s heading in the right direction to make this casting actually happen. And that direction is straight into the Warner Bros. studio.
Wondering who's going to play the Green Lantern in Zack Snyder's Justice League lineup? So's a particular Fast And Furious star who's thrown their hat in the ring.
We have until 2017 before we’ll see the first part of the Justice League movie hit theaters, and apparently things are moving along well…in fact, a little too well. Why is this a problem? The latest rumor suggests that, like with Man of Steel, the script is the main issue with Justice League. Only this time around, it’s for the opposite reason.
The more that James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy shares on his social media outlets, the more his fans learn that he really is a comic book fan, far beyond just the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
An email from within Sony Pictures Entertainment suggests that Warner Bros. and DC have recruited indie director Jeff Nichols to direct Aquaman.
Now that Jason Momoa has been confirmed as Aquaman in Warner Bros.’ developing Justice League universe, the Game of Thrones star finally has the greenlight to unleash all sorts of details about the role, his audition process, and the future of this aquatic superhero.
In the same way that Marvel Studios had to up its game when going from making solo movies to the first Avengers, DC Comics is going to have to bring all its got when it comes to making Justice League. This not only means uniting their biggest heroes, but also having them square off against an extremely dangerous threat with a very big plan.
After months of waiting, Warner Bros. and DC Comics finally gave fans what they were asking for: the planned live-action DC films. Starting with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, WB will release 10 DC films between 2016 and 2020. From solo films like Wonder Woman and Aquaman to ensemble films like Suicide Squad and Justice League Part One and Two there’s a lot to take in, but we’ve got you covered! Here’s everything we know so far about DC’s films.
This raises an interesting point when it comes to timelines. According to today’s reveal, DC plans a Justice League movie in 2017, and a sequel in 2019. Both of which will be directed by Zack Snyder. In between the two Justice League movies, there will be the Flash and Aquaman movies.
Justice League is only three years off, guys! Which means it's time to start guessing the plot and the villain, which might already be half done if this latest news bulletin turns out to be true.
If you're waiting for Zack Snyder's Justice League, you're going to have to wait until 2017. But if you're a fan of DC's Animated Universe, you're in luck!
Clearly it's an exciting time for Zack Snyder right now, as his Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice is one of the most talked about releases on deck for 2016. Things are about to get a little more exciting, as he and his crew are breaking out their passports and heading to lovely Morocco. But why?
Marvel Studios certainly has a jump start on the DC when it comes to building a cinematic universe, having been establishing itself as a brand since 2008, but don’t count the home of Batman and Superman out. In addition to having the big blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice scheduled to hit theaters in 2016, they have huge active plans for the entire rest of the decade. And this week we got a very limited peak into exactly what they have in the works.
With dates for nine untitled films being announced this week, DC Comics has sparked the speculative fires at any and every movie site in town. If you're tired of Marvel running the show, and want to see some competition, continue reading on!
