When Ben Affleck stepped back from directing The Batman, we knew changes were coming. Turns out those changes are total. In a new interview, director Matt Reeves confirmed what many had long suspected. He won’t be using the original script Affleck was working on with DC’s Geoff Johns.
Superman: The Movie is still one of the most iconic and influential superhero films of all time, its legacy being felt in the superhero movies being made today. But it, and the man who swooped in to save it—the legendary Richard Donner—perhaps made their most important impact as inspirations for the careers of both…
At the start of the year, Geoff Johns teased his return to comics writing with a simple teaser image: The glowering brow of Watchmen’s Dr. Manhattan. Now we know just what he’s up to, and it has huge ramifications for the DC comics universe.
About a year ago, news broke that the DC/Vertigo comic Scalped was going to become a TV show on WGN America. Not much has happened since but then, out of almost nowhere, actress Lily Gladstone has been cast as one of the leads.
When Ben Affleck gave up directing duties on the solo Batman film, it was obvious things were grim. And while the latest rumor seems to suggest they’re just getting worse, at least this time there may be a silver lining.
And it’s a pretty reasonable assumption to make that he’ll be the writer behind anything Watchmen-related that happens this year in DC Rebirth.
Director Rick Famuyiwa, who made last year’s underrated gem Dope, has left the Warner Bros and DC film The Flash due to “creative differences.” And while that news definitely sucks, maybe there’s a silver lining.
In their first interview since taking over the DC Films, the men put in charge of righting the ship after Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad admitted that the tone of the previous films has been wrong—and as a result, many changes are being made.
Legends of Tomorrow has added another new hero to its time-traveling team: Courtney Whitmore, a.k.a. Stargirl. She’ll be played by Sarah Gray, whose TV resume includes Wayward Pines, Lucifer, and Bates Motel. She also has a supporting role in the upcoming Power Rangers movie.
When Clark Kent joined the Daily Planet at the end of Man of Steel, it was obvious there was more to come. However, that ended up being Batman v Superman followed by Justice League, two team-up movies that have the iconic hero as a supporting player. That’ll change very soon.
This is bizarre news. Not just because Wonder Woman has wrapped production and we’ve only just learned who wrote the script Patty Jenkins shot, but because what many assumed would be a DC movie out of the direct hands of Zack Snyder’s involvement is in fact very much connected with the filmmaker.
Steven Spielberg confirms George Lucas’ involvement with Indiana Jones 5. Karl Urban really wants Dredd 2 to happen. Arrow casts a former Walking Dead star as a new villain. Plus, a Power Rangers teaser poster for a teaser poster, and more Spider-Man Homecoming casting. To me, my Spoilers!
Last week, we were fortunate to visit the London set of Justice League (read about it here). While on set, Ben Affleck approached the journalists in his full batsuit (minus cowl) to talk not just about that movie, but his solo Batman film. Here’s the short version of what he said: It’ll be ready when it’s ready.
One of the biggest criticisms about how Warner Bros. was handling its DC properties was there wasn’t one person overseeing it all. It was a large group of people, too many cooks in the kitchen, and that diluted the overall vision. There was no equivalent of Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige. Well, DC Films has finally…
Greetings, mail-keteers! Besides figuring out Marvel’s Inhumans plans (as well as the TV future of Ms. Marvel), we’re going to learn how much input DC Comics’ Geoff Johns has on the WB movies, what the most unsatisfying part of Game of Thrones is, and why Syfy loves handjobs! (Reminder: Somehow I technically get paid…
We’re still several months away from meeting our newest big screen Batman, but rumors are already surfacing about what Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight may be up to in his first solo outing. The good news is that these newest rumors happen to pretty plausible.
It’s been rumored for a while, but now Warner Bros. has finally
managed to roll a big enough wheelbarrow full of cash convinced Oscar-winning director Ben Affleck to direct and star in the first new stand-alone Batman movie of the new DC cinematic universe, from a script by DC Comics’ Geoff Johns.
Thanks to the straight-to-home video Flashpoint movie, the new animated universe based on DC's New 52 relaunch is officially here. The first movie in this brand-new DCAU? Justice League: War, based on the first six issues of the Justice League comic by Geoff Johns — here's the trailer.
Justice League #22 comes out today, featuring the very beginning of DC's summer mega-event "Trinity War" (not to be confused with all those previously released "Prelude to Trinity War" issues). To celebrate it, DC released this Johns-narrated video which explains what "Trinity War" is... and then how it ends. The hell?
DC Comics is releasing the massive Absolute Edition of Geoff Johns' best-selling Blackest Night mega-event this Wednesday, and io9 is proud to reveal the book's true cover.
