BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Back in late October, it was reported that Warner Bros. was looking for a female director to helm their upcoming solo superhero film Wonder Woman - and today it looks like they have made their choice. New reports are surfacing saying that the producer/director Michelle MacLaren is now in negotiations with Warner Bros. to helm the Gal Gadot-starring film.
Any director contemplating the solo Wonder Woman movie has to deal with a handful of unknowns at the moment. They havenít see Gal Gadot in action. They donít know, fully, how the character will be introduced in Zack Snyderís Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And they donít know how the movie landscape will change between now and 2017.
DC Comics and Warner Bros. has finally started to get their cinematic universe off the ground, but even so, there was a long time when nothing was being done on building a connective world with these iconic superheroes. Hereís the reason for the delay.
In 2017, the Wonder Woman movie should prove to be a rather major event. Starring Gal Gadot in the titular role, the solo film will be the first live-action feature about the legendary comic book character, and the movie should play a huge role in further establishing the growing DC Cinematic Universe. But what can we actually expect to see unfold plot-wise?
DC is said to be seeking a female helmer for Wonder Woman. Should they follow through on this, that would make whoever lands the gig a major part of superhero movie history. To date there have only been two women who've been entrusted with superhero adaptations.
Lynda Carter still stands as the de facto representation of the warrior princess, even though it has been roughly 35 years since the actress last portrayed Wonder Woman in any function of note. So itís to Carter we turn when we wonder how Wonder Woman should be portrayed on screen in the developing DC universe, and the actress has some great thoughts.
When will we finally get a Wonder Woman movie? The infamous Amazonian will be introduced in Snyderís movie when it reaches theaters on May 6, 2016.
This past summerís San Diego Comic-Con was a rather disappointing one for comic book movie fans. While many Ė including myself Ė had incredibly high expectations of big reveals, we were actually left learning very little big news. This past week, however, has been what I expected Comic-Con to be.
DC has a unique opportunity to define a new chapter of Wonder Woman's legacy with this 2017 movie. With the right director, DC could craft something spectacular and iconic with Wonder Woman. But who'd be up to the task of taking on a superheroine movie that even Joss Whedon found tricky? Here are five filmmakers who could do Wonder Woman justice.
Zack Snyderís Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has spent most of its time filming out in the Midwest, targeting cities like Detroit and Chicago, but the production has apparently been putting together something gigantic in the middle of the New Mexico desert.
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 thereís a lot to take in, but weíve got you covered! Hereís everything we know so far about DCís films.
Could the DC Cinematic Continuum finally have its act together? Something tells us the middle road houses the actual truth, as we've picked three winners and three losers from today's news blast.
While Marvel hunkers down for a Civil War, Warner Bros and DC just answered by laying out their complete movie plan through 2020 Ė including standalone films for The Flash, Aquaman and multiple Justice League movies.
Should humor be banned, completely, from DCís pending movies? Absolutely not. Itís OK to strike a serious tone with your characters (and somber Batman basically demands it). But some of the characters on the planned DC slate need levity and a lightheartedness if audiences are going to swallow their comic-booky exploits.
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 donít 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!
A rumor began circulating this summer claiming that the companies have seven titles currently in the works, including Justice League, Wonder Woman and Flash and Green Latnern projects. Itís hard to say exactly how much of that information was accurate in terms of naming in-development projects, but one thing is definitely for sure: there are a lot of DC Comics movies set to be unveiled over the next few years.
Or maybe it's something more. If Warner Bros. is serious about establishing their own superhero universe, they'll have to have a lynchpin, and it need not be one character. Batman and Superman are clearly the most visible heroes in DC's cinematic world thus far, but in the comics they hold down the foundations of the superhero world alongside Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman's new costume was unveiled at Comic Con today, and the fans went nuts. After the initial reaction, however, there's bound to be a lot of people wondering what happened to their favorite hero's color scheme of red, blue, and gold? Read on for an interesting theory that might answer your questions.
Our very own Eric was hunkered down in Hall H to witness the exclusive footage. Surprisingly, Warner Bros. led off their anticipated panel with Batman v. Superman instead of making fans wait. As the footage happened, Eric reported.
In the world of comic book movies, there is perhaps no bigger event in the world than San Diego Comic-Con. Every year, the major studios arrive in the coastal Southern California city to present previews of their biggest genre and fan-driven projects Ė and perhaps the most anticipated ones are the big blockbuster superhero films coming out over the next few years.
Zack Snyder claims that he hasnít films any scenes with Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman yet. The director went so far as to say ďSheís working out and getting buffed and ripped.Ē But she hasnít filmed any scenes yet, according to the director.
Just like we have with many of the other major blockbusters set to come out over the next few years, we have researched and gathered as much information about the development of the Justice League movie as we could possibly find to try and put together a picture of what we can expect from the superhero team up movie.
DC Comics has long had distinct advantage over Marvel where big screen adaptations are concerned. While the latter sold off the movie rights to many of its most popular characters years ago Ė including Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four Ė the former made a partnership with Warner Bros. pictures years ago that kept all of the companyís characters under one roof. Only now, however, does it appear that DC is finally taking advantage of this fact.
All in all, a total of six new projects were "revealed" to be following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, and the list contained weird surprise after weird surprise. Three movies a year coming for two straight years. No new Batman movie on the horizon. Shazam and Wonder Woman getting solo movies in the immediate future. Man of Steel 2 not happening until 2018.
