Thanks to Marvel, superhero movies and post-credit scenes basically go hand in hand. Recently, Marvel has really played with that expectation, going super excessive with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and including a knowing wink in Spider-Man: Homecoming. DC movies, on the other hand, have never felt beholden to…
Though Warner Brothers and DC were slow to begin building their own shared cinematic universe in a fashion similar to Marvel’s, there was no reason to believe that they wouldn’t be able to pull it off successfully in their own time. Looking at the current state of things, though, that’s becoming increasingly difficult…
Suicide Squad, a bad movie, made quite a bit of money—meaning that regardless of how little most people cared for it, Warner Bros. never doubted the possibility of making a sequel. According to a new report from Deadline, though, the studio continues to have trouble finding a director.
Though he doesn’t have traditional super powers like most of his friends, Batman’s got a lot going for him. He’s a handsome, rich, athletic white guy with virtually endless resources at his disposal. And yet, every so often, people come along who feel as if that’s not enough to make Batman a real superhero.
Thursday’s DC Animated Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con was a fairly subdued affair. But apparently DC and Warner Bros. saved all their big surprises for last night’s premiere of Batman and Harley Quinn—because now we know that not one, not two, not three, but four more major DC animated movies are on the way.
Diana of Themiscyra has taken her place at the top of DC’s movie trinity—at least, at the US domestic box office. This morning, Wonder Woman officially topped Batman v Superman for the highest domestic box office within the DCEU, and even did so like it was possessed by the speedforce itself.
As the star of one of Marvel’s biggest franchises, no one would fault Chris Pratt for crapping all over DC. In fact, from the famously brazen and charismatic star, you might expect it. But when asked about the rival franchise, Pratt was objective but honest.
There’s something heartwarming about seeing your favorite science fiction and fantasy films turned into kids’ books. Morphing brutal, hard-R rated content in happy, funny ways is the trademark of artist Joey Spiotto, who’s about to debut another new series in this vein.
In an interview on Friday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin made a joke about everyone sending their kids to go see Lego Batman, a movie that he helped produce. So now Senator Ron Wyden, a Democrat from Oregon, is calling for the Office of Government Ethics to investigate Mnuchin for violating ethics rules. It’s…
Congratulations to Alessandro Bertolazzi, Giorgio Gregorini, and Christopher Nelson. I mean that sincerely, because in addition to actually doing some great makeup work but who also had to work under what I imagine to be truly unnecessarily awful conditions.
The 2017 Oscars are tonight, and while scifi and comic book fans didn’t get everything they wanted this year, there are some cool nominations that are worth getting psyched about. What are you hoping takes home the trophy this time? And just how pissed are you that Deadpool got snubbed?
Looks like WGN America is moving quickly to turn DC/Vertigo comic Scalped into its next TV hit. The network has announced that actor Alex Meraz has been cast as the lead actor in the pilot.
Warner Bros and DC continue to make sarcastically amazing directorial choices. They’ve reportedly sought out Mel Gibson, the guy who’s gone on anti-Semitic rants and said he wanted his ex-girlfriend to get gang-raped, as the person they’d like to direct the next Suicide Squad movie.
On Monday night, the United States senate confirmed the executive producer of Suicide Squad, Steven Mnuchin, as Treasury Secretary. This is, perhaps, the most twisted presidential cabinet in our nation’s history.
Not since Tuxedo Mask have we seen a hero with such epic control over the sassiness of his cape.
Suicide Squad director David Ayer has come out and said he wants a “time machine” so he could go back and make the Joker the main villain of the film. Cause that’s exactly what the movie needed ... more excuses for Jared Leto to send people dead pigs.
The Young Pope is HBO’s delightfully absurd new drama that aims to finally answer the Church’s oldest question: What if the pope was a young, chain-smoking bully with a hot bod and a twisted thirst for power? Despite its prestige television presentation, the show is a lot more Twin Peaks than House of Cards. In the…
Jyn and Cassian facing off with Krennic. Bodhi working communications. Chirrut and Baze fighting on the beach. The space battle. The Imperials. And finally, Darth Vader and the ending. Trying to put the many, many pieces that are part of Rogue One’s third act together wasn’t quite as hard as stealing the Death Star…
In a recent interview, Charles Roven, producer of all the DC films so far, explains why he’s stepping back from the universe, what Wonder Woman and Justice League will be like, and defends the box office of Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman.
