It should tell you something that we have run multiple versions of these reminder guides for the state of Warner Bros.’s DC Entertainment movie universe. But it’s not every week that your whole understanding of the fragile state of a movie universe gets turned upside down by talk of one of its biggest stars exiting,…
The DC cinematic universe might have just gone through the death and rebirth of Superman, but an explosive new report suggests that it could be losing its Man of Steel for good.
Attentive fans might have noticed that Shazam’s suit in, y’know, Shazam shifted a little between the early images, the trailer, and newly released marketing materials. That’s apparently just how it goes.
After Apple announced plans to acquire Shazam at the end of 2017, the deal was put on hold when the EU launched an antitrust investigation to determine if it would decrease competition between streaming music providers.
Even more names are being added to the potential director list for Bond 25. Black Lightning recruits another DC superhero. Brian Henson offers an update on Netflix’s Dark Crystal series. Plus, more sneak peeks from Deadly Class, a new look at the next season of The Walking Dead, and more. Spoilers now!
Lois Lane could make appearances beyond the big DC/CW superhero crossover. Detective Pikachu’s Rob Letterman promises photorealistic, Rocket-Raccoon-esque Pokémon. Netflix’s new astronaut drama adds a Man of Steel. Plus, more American Horror Story teases, and a new look at The First. Spoilers, away!
As much as diehard fans of Warner Bros.’ DC movies might not want to admit it, the fact of the matter is that most of the studio’s film so far have been, well, not great. The studio’s less-than-stellar track record made it kind of difficult to get too excited for Shazam!, a property you wouldn’t immediately think…
As DC Comics has transmogrified over the last 20 years, Geoff Johns has been at the very center of—or, at least, extremely close to—the engines of change. His title is different nowadays, but he’s still going to be working on deepening interpretations of the company’s iconic characters.
It’s clear from our first good look at Shazam! last week that it isn’t going to be the sort of comic book movie we’ve come to expect from DC—which means there are going to be some pretty distinct changes from the source material. Mark Strong’s big villain of the film, Dr. Sivana, is apparently no exception.
After Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League, all of which exist in the same universe, Shazam! looks like it’s going to be a breath of fresh air for the DC Extended Universe. Very happy, very silly fresh air.
The big show is on! Comic-Con officially began last night in San Diego and the crew of io9 is there to experience it first-hand and bring you all the fun. Our own Beth Elderkin and Germain Lussier took a stroll around the show floor on Preview Night to give you a sneak peak at what to expect.
James Wan returns to horror with a sci-fi twist on the killer doll trope. Henry Cavill is still telling us what he wants out of a hypothetical Man of Steel sequel. The Y: The Last Man TV show adds an intriguing character. Plus, new pictures from Doctor Who, and what’s to come on The Originals. To me, my spoilers!
Kevin Feige promises the end of the MCU as we know it in Avengers 4. The Walking Dead’s incoming showrunner says the next season will see female characters step up. Plus, our first look at Shazam!’s kid-version of Billy Batson, some timey-wimey Flash set photos, and a new look at Nic Cage’s cult movie Mandy. Spoilers…
Christopher Lloyd is game for a fourth Back to the Future film. The Walking Dead recruits another time-skip character from the comics. Danielle Panabaker will head behind the camera for The Flash’s next season. Plus, a new look at Fear the Walking Dead’s return, and what’s to come on The 100. To me, my spoilers!
While it was initially thought that This Is Us star Ron Cephas Jones was the frontrunner to join Warner Bros.’ upcoming Shazam! as a key DC Comics character who plays a pivotal role in Billy Batson’s journey to becoming a hero, it turns out that that’s probably not the case.
As DC Entertainment’s president, Geoff Johns has had a hand in the production of some of the company’s most stellar television, film, and comics projects in recent memory, including The Flash, Wonder Woman, and Doomsday Clock. Now, though, Johns is stepping into a new role that will give him more time for creating…
Well, this is interesting: according to David F. Sandberg, director of the upcoming Shazam!, the DCEU film will technically share a universe with his previous film.
Zachary Levi’s Shazam, as we’ve seen from the one major look we’ve gotten of his costume, is something of a change of pace for the DC Extended Universe. He’s brightly colored, cheery, goofy, and he likes himself a soft drink (can you imagine Batfleck drinking a Dr. Pepper? I didn’t think so).
The new Men in Black film adds another intriguing cast member. David F. Sandberg discusses Shazam’s movie suit. Argo City returns in new Supergirl pictures. Plus, good news for Krypton, a tiny look at Matt Groening’s new fantasy series, and teasers for Arrow’s next season. To me, my spoilers!
