BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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!
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. It’s 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.
Tomorrow could very well end up being one of the most memorable days in the history of comic book movies. Both Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios will be delivering presentations to the crowds of Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, and what's expected is a slew of major announcements about future superhero films. But while everything will become official tomorrow, that's not stopping stuff from leaking out early.
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 – and perhaps the most anticipated ones are the big blockbuster superhero films coming out over the next few years.
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 – including Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four – the former made a partnership with Warner Bros. pictures years ago that kept all of the company’s 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.
Clearly WB's got an interest in the character. They also have an interest in Darkseid, who has long been rumored to be the baddie for Justice League, which totally makes sense.
