BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
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.
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.
Among the announced films, we can guess that Justice League and Man Of Steel 2 are accounted for, likely films directed by Zack Snyder. With Sandman probably directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, that leaves Shazam, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern & The Flash without a director.
With DC Comics launching a new sneak attack regarding their plans to start their own cinematic universe, perhaps now's a good time to learn about just what their putting together.
