DCEU News: Details on The Elseworlds Banner, Their New Direction, and DC's Continuity

Image
DC Entertainment has kind of struggled with the launch of their Cinematic Universe. Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman were mixed at best, Suicide Squad was poorly received, and Wonder Woman was (thankfully) a mega-hit. Abraham Riesman of the Vulture spoke with the creative officer, Geoff Johns about some behind the scenes details. I've picked out the things I found most interesting, but for the full story click the link above.


Geoff Johns and Man of Steel
When Man of Steel, DC's first film in their new cinematic universe came out, it was a completely different situation. One person close to Man of Steel said: “Geoff Johns and Diane Nelson [President of DC Entertainment] were reading scripts, and Geoff Johns, to his credit, was concerned that there was not enough lightness or humor, given who the character is. Geoff definitely raised that point, but that current administration didn’t care that much about what Geoff Johns thought.” After their failed attempt at making a movie …

Danny Elfman is Bringing Back the Classic Superman Theme for JUSTICE LEAGUE

Image
After Joss Whedon brought Danny Elfman on to work on Justice League, many have been wondering what the legend has been working on. Well, it looks like we finally have an idea of what to expect, he gives us new details on Justice League's soundtrack, as well as his approach to the DC Universe. Some of what Elfman said might be considered a spoiler so consider this your warning.

In an interview with Billboard, Elfman talked about how great it was to jump back into the DC universe 28 years later: "It was great. It was like I never left because I’m using the same thematic material that I used back then. It never actually went away [Laughs.] It just was great fun."
"There are a few little fan moments. I instated a moment of the Wonder Woman theme that Hans Zimmer did for Batman Vs. Superman, but I also had two minutes where I had the pleasure of saying, “Let’s do John Williams’ Superman.” and that for me was heaven, because now I have a melody to twist, and I’m using it …

Michelle Williams in Talks to Join VENOM Movie

Image
Sony Pictures is finally moving ahead with its Venom movie, a new take on the iconic Spider-Man villain. The studio has made some noteworthy casting choices so far; Tom Hardy has been cast as Eddie Brock, while Riz Ahmed will play an unnamed character. Now, we have another one to add.

According to Variety, Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams is in talks to join the cast of Venom. The role is described as a district attorney who is "possibly" Brock's love interest. While unconfirmed, this character is most likely Ann Weying, who was rumored to be in the movie this past summer.

Williams tends to avoid blockbuster films, with the exception being 2013's Oz: The Great and Powerful. Instead, she has kept focus on more prestige movies. However, if her deal closes, Venom will serve as her comic book movie debut. That, along with the film's other casting decisions, promises a potentially special entry in the genre.

Venom will begin production next month under the directi…

SMALLVILLE Star Tom Welling Has Some Ideas About a Potential Appearance on THE FLASH

Image
Ever since the start of The CW's shared universe of DC shows - dubbed the Arrowverse - fans have wanted to see Tom Welling reprise his role as Clark Kent/Superman from Smallville. The actor turned down the chance to appear on Supergirl, while he did join Vertigo series Lucifer this season. However, it turns out Welling isn't completely opposed to returning to the DC Multiverse.

Speaking with Nuke the Fridgeat a Fox Fall TV party, Welling had this to say after a lengthy conversation about The Flash and the Multiverse. "I am willing to go on The Flash and I have a few ideas on how it can happen if the network asks me. In fact, I think I can make it happen."

The Flash has heavily dealt with the concept of alternate universes since its second season. In fact, that's how Supergirl was able to cross over with the other shows. They can easily depict the world of Smallville as one of these alternate Earths, setting up a crossover. Or, they can have Welling play an entire…

Warner Bros. Releasing TEEN TITANS GO! Movie Next Summer

Image
Teen Titans Go! has been a surprise hit for DC and Cartoon Network. The animated series, which has run for four seasons so far, is a slapstick spin-off of the original show. Its style of humor and DC Universe references helped give the series a vocal fanbase. And now, the Titans are heading to the big screen.

Per Deadline, Warner Bros. will release a Teen Titans Go! animated movie on July 27th, 2018. The film was previously slated for a June 1st release, where it was just called "Untitled WB Animation Film." No other details, such as a voice cast and director, have been revealed just yet.

The Teen Titans Go! film is the latest recent project starring the team. They headlined two movies in the DC Animated Movie Universe - Justice League vs. Teen Titans and The Judas Contract. Additionally, DC will release a live action Titansseries on its streaming service next year. So yeah, great time to be a Teen Titans fan.

Stay tuned for more news as we have it.

SUPERGIRL Casts Legion of Superheroes Member Saturn Girl for Season 3

Image
Supergirl has been teasing the arrival of the Legion of Superheroes for a while now. The team's ring was spotted in the Fortress of Solitude back in season one. Also, Mon-El has a lot of connections to the group in the comics, and the season two finale showed him going...somewhere through a portal. Is this where he meets the Legion?

Regardless, we'll be meeting at least one member of the Legion this season. It has been announced that actress Amy Jackson has been cast as Imra Ardeen, aka Saturn Girl. Ardeen is a "strong-willed" hero who "...uses her telekinetic ability to help those in need. She was born on Titan, one of Saturn’s moons, and arrives on Earth to help Supergirl battle one of her biggest threats."

This marks Saturn Girl's second live action portrayal, following Smallville. With this character set to appear, how long until the rest of the Legion shows up?

Stay tuned for more as we have it. Supergirl returns on Monday, October 9th at 8 PM EST …

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE Grosses an Estimated $39 Million in Opening Weekend

Image
Following the success of 2015's Kingsman: The Secret Service, 20th Century Fox quickly put a sequel into development. Subtitled The Golden Circle, the follow-up has now hit theaters. Despite mixed reviews from critics, the film has easily won the top spot at the box office this weekend.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Kingsman has opened with an estimated $39 million in North America. While that's behind the $40 million+ projections, this puts the sequel ahead of the first film's $36.2 million opening weekend, and it's the fifth biggest September opening ever.

Overseas, Kingsman earned $61 million, bringing its worldwide opening to $100 million. The sequel's production budget is $104 million (not counting marketing), so unless it has terrible legs in the coming weeks/months, it should have no problem turning a profit. So, how long until that Kingsman 3 announcement?

Stay tuned for more box office updates as we have them.

ARROW Star Stephen Amell Promises We'll See Oliver Queen's Goatee...Eventually

Image
The CW's Arrow has taken its time to gradually introduce Green Arrow's more comic book-y characteristics, such as his mask, politics, and even the name "Green Arrow." But one thing that hasn't shown up is Oliver Queen's signature goatee. We saw a future version of Oliver with the beard on DC's Legends of Tomorrow, but that's about it.

Stephen Amell previously explained that he didn't grow a beard out during the first five seasons because he had to shoot flashback scenes too, when Oliver didn't have a goatee, while he refused to wear a fake beard again after Legends. So, when is it coming?

At Salt Lake Comic-Con (via Comic Book), Amell was asked once more about the future of Green Arrow's facial hair. He says that before Arrow ends its run - whenever that happens - we'll see the goatee. "I promise you, before the series - not season, series - ends, we will have at least one shot with the iconic goatee."

Arrow will begin its si…

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is Now 2017's Highest Grossing Superhero Movie Worldwide

Image
Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming has been one of the year's biggest hits, successfully breathing life back into the franchise. The reboot recently got a big boost from its release in China. And now, it has passed yet another benchmark - a big one at that.

At an estimated $874.4 million, Homecoming is now the highest grossing superhero movie of the year worldwide (via Box Office Mojo). Its domestic gross is $331.9 million, while its overseas gross is $542.5 million.

Homecoming passes Marvel Studios' other blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($863.4 million). DC Films' Wonder Woman is at $819.6 million, while Fox's Logan ended with $616.8 million. (Wonder Woman still retains the #1 spot domestically, with $411.7 million.) We still have two more titles on the way - Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok and DC's Justice League - so Spidey may not have the top spot when the year is over. But, as of right now, it does.

In other news, Homecoming is just a few milli…

Rumored GAMBIT Plot Details Reveal Villain, X-MEN Connections and More

Image
For a while now, 20th Century Fox has been developing a film starring X-Men character Gambit, who will be played by Channing Tatum. The movie has had trouble locking down a director, while Tatum confirmed that rewrites are underway, following the success of Deadpool and Logan. Now, we may have some details on the film's plot.

Splash Reporthas published an alleged plot breakdown for Gambit, confirming its ties to the X-Men franchise and its heist tone. Here are the highlights...

Gambit is called the Ocean's 11 of comic book movies, exploring Remy Lebeau's career as a thief and his heists. The movie also showcases Lebeau's romance with Bella Donna Boudreaux, which is forbidden by their families.For the film's biggest heist, Lebeau is hired by Nathaniel Essex, aka Mister Sinister. Essex Corporation was teased in the X-Men: Apocalypse post-credits scene, so it was only a matter of time before he showed up. Leabeau is tasked with recovering a trunk owned by the Boudreaux …

Rumor: Two Characters Have Been Cut from JUSTICE LEAGUE

Image
We're now less than two months from the release of DC Films' Justice League, which is now well into post-production following lengthy reshoots. Apparently, Warner Bros. is now testing a cut of the movie to lucky audiences. While specific details are (obviously) under wraps, rumor has it that this cut has removed two characters from the film.

Sources tell Batman-News that Iris West, played by Kiersey Clemons, has been cut from Justice League. The site has also backed up the rumor that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor has been removed from the movie as well. There was no reason given for exactly why either charater was cut. Of course, this probably isn't the final version of Justice League, and it's possible that Iris and/or Lex will be added back in later. But as of right now, they're no longer in it.

Clemons was cast as Iris, aka Barry Allen's love interest, for The Flash standalone movie, which has now become Flashpoint. But she had also filmed some scenes fo…

Plot Details for the Next Arrowverse Crossover Announced; The Ray Has Been Cast

Image
Last year, The CW brought together all four of its DC Comics shows - Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow - in a three-part crossover event. This year's crossover event is planning to go bigger, with a wedding at the heart of the story and a new hero making his live action debut.

The CW has announced that this year's Arrowverse crossover is called "Crisis on Earth X." The story sees our heroes back together, this time to celebrate the wedding of Barry Allen and Iris West. However, villains from Earth-X crash the wedding with a "deadly agenda."

The CW has also released the following key art, which was drawn by legendary artist Phil Jimenez. The artwork features a list of heroes appearing - even Captain Cold?! - as they face their enemies.


Executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg weigh in on this year's crossover, as well as Jimenez's art. "We conceived this year’s crossover to be evocative of the annual …

Fox CEO Talks NEW MUTANTS' Tone and Potential Wolverine Recasting

Image
The X-Men franchise has been going for a whopping 17 years so far, and with several more films in development, there are no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The next installment is New Mutants, a horror story that unites a group of teenagers with mutant abilities. This week, we have some new details on this film's approach, as well as the cinematic future of the franchise's most popular face.

In an interview with Variety, 20th Century Fox CEO Stacey Snider comments on the studio's future plans for the X-Men saga. She confirms that they intend to "vigorously" explore the property, but each film will have its own unique tone and personality. New Mutants is no different. "New Mutants is about these teenagers who are just coming into their powers," Snider says. "It’s like watching mutants go through adolescence and they have no impulse control, so they’re dangerous. The only solution is to put them in a Breakfast Club detention/Cuckoo’s Nest institut…

Damon Lindelof's WATCHMEN is Getting a Pilot Order

Image
Alan Moore's Watchmen is once again looking to be adapted, this time by Damon Lindelof.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that HBO has ordered a pilot for the Lindelof project. The deal with HBO will also commission additional scripts for a potential series order.

If the Lindelof project makes it before cameras, it will be the second adaptation of the beloved graphic novel after Zack Snyder's 2009 film. Reviews were generally mixed for that film, with some reviewers considering the narrative to be too dense for a feature film. Hopefully Lindelof & co. will have success translating Rorschach and the gang to the small screen.

Watchmen is currently in development. Stay tuned to Watchtower of Babel for more DC news.

Matthew Vaughn Expresses Interest in Directing a FANTASTIC FOUR Movie

Image
Director Matthew Vaughn has a long history with comic book movies. The filmmaker has made 2010's Kick-Ass, 2011's X-Men: First Class, and the two Kingsman movies. Additionally, he has been considering the idea of tackling Warner Bros.' Man of Steel sequel, while he opted out of directing two previous X-Men sequels.

But another comic book movie in Vaughn's filmography is 2015's Fantastic Four, on which he was just a producer. That film was an absolute flop commercially and critically, ending plans for a sequel. However, Vaughn now wants to give this property another chance.

In an interview with CinemaBlend, Vaughn says that he would like to make his own Fantastic Four movie, mostly just to make up for the last film's failure. "The other one I've felt an obligation to do is, I wouldn't mind maybe making a Fantastic Four film to apologize to everyone out there that maybe it didn't go very well for them. It's brilliant. One of my favorites is the…

Full Trailer for Netflix's THE PUNISHER Released

Image
After a series of short promos and other marketing, Netflix has finally released a full trailer for its next original Marvel series, The Punisher. The trailer showcases Frank Castle's mission, fueled by the loss of his family and a mysterious conspiracy. We also see him doing what he does best: killing people in a very bloody fashion...all set to "One" by Metallica.

Check out the trailer below, and stay tuned for more as we have it. The Punisher premieres sometime this year on Netflix.

Review: KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

Image
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the sequel to 2014's surprise hit, Kingsman: The Secret Service. A film about espionage, suits, and action. The Golden Circle is much more of the same, but it has a few twists and turns along the way. Does the film live up to its predecessor or is it like many of the bad sequels we've seen in the past? Well, let's find out.

The story is relatively straightforward, The Kingsman need to take down the worlds biggest drug cartel (The Golden Circle), lead by Poppy (Julianne Moore). Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and Merlin (Mark Strong) need to get help from the Statesman, Kingsman's American counterpart. That's pretty much it. There are more things that factor into the story, but that would be stepping into spoiler territory, and where's the fun in that? The story is a little weak but it could've easily been made worse if it wasn't for the cast. Everyone did a fantastic job! They all owned their roles and really elevated the film. That&…

Patty Jenkins Explains Why WONDER WOMAN Doesn't Have a Post-Credits Scene

Image
DC Films' Wonder Woman was the breakout hit of the summer, becoming one of the most beloved superhero movies in recent memory. Following this success, Patty Jenkins signed on to direct and co-write a sequel, which was announced for a December 2019 release. (With Star Wars Episode IX now scheduled for that date, expect Wonder Woman 2 to move.)

One thing that set Wonder Woman apart from its recent counterparts was the lack of a post-credits scene. The majority of modern superhero films include an extra scene in the middle or after the credits, usually to tease the next movie in the franchise. However, with the exceptions of Suicide Squadand maybe Justice League, the DC Extended Universe has avoided that trend.

In an interview with Toronto Sun, Jenkins explains exactly why she didn't add a post-credits scene to Wonder Woman. Basically, in terms of style and tone, it wouldn't have made sense. "I’m not always a believer in post-credit scenes. I feel like they make sense i…

Marvel Studios May Be Reviving POWER PACK Movie

Image
Back in 2005, Marvel Studios unveiled its original slate of independent films, bringing multiple comic book characters to the big screen. Most of these characters have gone on to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, whether it's on the big screen or television. But one property that has yet to be tackled is Power Pack, a team of four siblings who are given powers by a dying alien.

Now, it looks like the property may be coming after all. According to That Hashtag Show, Marvel Studios has "revisited" the idea of making a Power Pack movie. Jonathan Schwartz, who has been involved with Marvel Studios since 2009, has been given creative oversight on the film. Apparently, the plan is to make a Spy Kids-esque story.

Power Pack would certainly make sense for Marvel's future slate. The studio is expanding its cosmic properties, with James Gunn overseeing them and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 expected to set up the next decade or two of Marvel stories. It also makes sense to ap…

Matthew Vaughn Describes His "Feel-Good, Heroic" Vision for a SUPERMAN Film

Image
Earlier this year, it was reported that filmmaker Matthew Vaughn was the top choice to direct Warner Bros.' Man of Steel sequel, aka Superman's next solo film. Vaughn recently confirmed talks about tackling the character, and now, he breaks down exactly what his vision for a Superman movie would be.

Speaking with Collider, Vaughn explains what he would do with Superman if he was ever the opportunity, saying that he would return to the style of the original Richard Donner films. "I think my main take would be, it’s really boring but make a Superman film. I just don’t feel a proper Superman - I think Donner did it to perfection for that time. Just doing the modern - I wanna do a modern version of the Donner [version]. Go back to the source material… For me, Superman is color, feel-good, heroic. He’s a beacon of light in darkness. And that’s what I think Superman should be."

The original Superman film series, starring Christopher Reeve, is still seen by many as the def…

FEATURE: Five More X-MEN Spin-Off Movies We Want to See

Image
Few could have predicted just how long the X-Men franchise would last. 17 years later, and the series has put out ten movies to date. We've had the main trilogy set in the present day, with another trilogy exploring the past. We also have three Wolverine movies and a Deadpool film. Next year, Fox is releasing New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and Dark Phoenix. Movies featuring Gambit, X-Force, X-23, Exiles, and Alpha Flight are also in various stages of development.

Of course, that's not the end. The X-Men universe is vast, and it can easily live on for another decade or so. There is definitely potential to add several more spin-offs to the slate. Below, we've compiled a list of five spin-offs we would like to see.

Storm
Ororo Munroe is a key supporting player in the X-Men franchise. She was played by Halle Berry in four movies, while Alexandra Shipp takes on a younger version in Apocalypse and next year's Dark Phoenix. Beyond that, it's likely we'll see this Storm in othe…

NEW MUTANTS Movie Has Wrapped Production

Image
This summer, production finally began for Fox's X-Men spinoff New Mutants. This film is expected to be very different from its predecessors, with director Josh Boone calling it a "full-fledged horror movie" that does not have costumes or supervillains. Now, filming is done.

Boone took to Instagram to confirm that New Mutants has wrapped production, just a couple months after filming started. Now that principal photography is finished, Boone and his team can move on to editing and other parts of post-production. Hopefully, we'll get a teaser trailer soon too.


That's a wrap on @newmutants with @bluhunt A post shared by Josh Boone (@joshboonemovies) on Sep 15, 2017 at 6:19pm PDT
New Mutants is scheduled to hit theaters on April 13th, 2018. The 11th installment of the X-Men franchise stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Henry Zaga, Charlie Heaton, Blu Hunt, and Alice Braga. Josh Boone directs from a script that he co-wrote with Knate Gwaltney

This Recurring Marvel Netflix Character Will Return in THE PUNISHER

Image
Netflix is in the process of promoting its next Marvel original series, The Punisher, even though we still don't have that premiere date. The show was featured in the latest issue of SFX Magazine, and some scans have come online. Among them is a new still that features a recurring character from the Marvel Netflix shows.

The following image (via Comic Book Movie) features Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) threatening none other than Turk Barrett, played by Rob Morgan. Turk debuted on Daredevil, before moving to Harlem in Luke Cage. He also appeared in an episode of The Defenders.

Turk made it out OK from Daredevil and Cage, as they aren't into killing their enemies. But Castle shows no hesitation in putting down criminals, so could this be the end of Marvel TV's best character? Or will he live on another day and go back to Hell's Kitchen, where it's safe?


Beyond appearances from Turk and Karen Page, don't expect The Punisher to be too connected to the other shows. Bernt…

DC Movie News Bits: Matthew Vaughn Confirms MAN OF STEEL 2 Talks, SHAZAM Working Title, NIGHTWING's Circus Nods

Image
Earlier this year, it was reported that Matthew Vaughn was Warner Bros.' top choice to direct the Man of Steel sequel. Vaughn has a history of directing comic book movies, having done X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass, and the Kingsman series. Now, the filmmaker has touched upon the possibility.

In an interview with HeyUGuys, Vaughn confirms that he has had conversations with WB about the next standalone Superman movie. "I don’t know what I’m going to do next, but I have had chats about Superman, I love Superman." He goes on to admit that he can't help but feel excited whenever he's offered a big franchise film, whether it be superhero, Star Wars or Indiana Jones.

Currently, WB has yet to include Man of Steel 2 as part of its DC Extended Universe slate, but we do know it's in some level of development. Perhaps the studio is waiting until after Superman's resurrection in Justice League before greenlighting his next movie? Hopefully, we'll get some official …

SyFy's KRYPTON Casts DC Superhero Adam Strange

Image
At San Diego Comic-Con this year, it was confirmed that SyFy's Superman prequel series Krypton will feature several superheroes from the DC Universe, including Adam Strange and Hawkwoman. These heroes come in to stop a modern-day conspiracy that threatens to stop Kal-El's legacy from ever happening. Now, one of these heroes has been cast.

According to Deadline, Melrose Place actor Shaun Sipos has landed the series regular role of Adam Strange on Krypton. The character is described as "...a world-weary human, who finds himself stranded on Krypton as the unlikely mentor to Seg-El, Superman’s grandfather." 

As said earlier, Strange is one of several fan-favorite DC characters who will join the show; in addition to the heroes, we'll be seeing villains Doomsday and Brainiac. More and more of these characters will appear as the series progresses.


Stay tuned for more news as we have it. Krypton premieres sometime next year on SyFy.

NIGHTWING Director Praises Warner Bros.' Filmmaker-Driven Approach and Discusses Building the DCEU

Image
Following the success of Man of Steel in 2013, Warner Bros. began the process of building a cinematic universe based on DC Comics. So far, the DC Extended Universe has released four movies, with many more on the way. One of these films is Nightwing, which finally puts the spotlight on Dick Grayson.

There has also been a lot of talk about WB's "director-driven" approach to the DCEU. Some argue that these films aren't all that focused on the director's vision, especially with Suicide Squad's David Ayer. However, we also have Patty Jenkins having creative control on Wonder Woman, while established filmmakers like Matt Reeves and James Wan are making movies in this mega-franchise.

Now, Nightwing director Chris McKay shares his thoughts on WB's filmmaker-driven style. Speaking with Metro, McKay calls WB the most director-driven major studio out there, and that's no different with the DC films. He also says that this is what separates the DCEU from the Mar…

Ezra Miller Reveals the One Part of Flash's Costume That We Won't See in JUSTICE LEAGUE

Image
Following a couple of brief cameos in past DC films, audiences will be properly introduced to Ezra Miller's Flash in this fall's Justice League. When we meet Barry Allen, he'll be wearing an early version of the Flash costume that he made himself. He is expected to get a costume upgrade at some point in the movie. However, we now know one part of the costume that we won't see...at least in this film.

Speaking with Entertainment Weeklyon the Justice League set last year, Miller confirms that we will not be seeing Flash's iconic ring in the movie. "I can confirm, spoiler alert, his suit does not pop out of his ring [in the movie]. Things have to progress, you know? Original Barry Allen was clearly an incredibly, incredibly clever scientist. We acknowledge and respect that. We want to apologize to the fans who are mad about the ring thing."

In the comics, Barry has stored his suit into a ring, and when he's ready to use it, it just pops out. But The Fla…

AGENTS OF SHIELD's Clark Gregg is Getting Behind the Camera

Image
Clark Gregg is well known for his acting, but he also has a seasoned career behind the camera. He wrote the Robert Zemeckis film What Lies Beneath and wrote and directed the 2013 film Trust Me. Agents of SHIELD fans have long hoped that Gregg would direct an episode of the ABC show, and we now have confirmation that it's happening, thanks to a Tweet from Gregg himself.

I'm directing my first one starting this week. #DaisyDatesanAlien — Clark Gregg (@clarkgregg) September 12, 2017 If you saw the Season 4 finale, you'll know Gregg is being *quite* the tease.

[Warning: The Following Contains SPOILERS for Agents of SHIELD Season 4.]
The last time we saw Coulson, he was on a spaceship; presumably with the rest of the team. With Daisy dealing with the loss of Lincoln Campbell in Season 3 and continuing to confront the ghosts of her relationship with Grant Ward, Daisy dating an Alien is quite the interesting direction to take her character.

Is Gregg giving us a tiny morsel to tide us …
