Orphan: First Kill

During a recent interview with Collider, Isabelle Fuhrman stated she believes audiences will be “shocked” by Orphan: First Kill.

I think people will be shocked by that story. It’s very different from what most people would expect and [Julia Stiles] is absolutely incredible in it, and we had a lot of fun making the movie together. It’s definitely a story about the two of us and our relationship, and Esther’s way that she came to the United States and how she found herself there.

Nightwing

Chris McKay told Den of Geek he hopes the Chris Pratt-starring The Tomorrow War will reignite Warner Bros. interest in his Nightwing movie.

What I hope is that Warner Brothers and DC watch The Tomorrow War and get really excited again about the Nightwing movie that we’ve been talking about, I hope that we get a chance to go out and make that Dick Grayson and Nightwing film. That particular part of Robin, growing from being under Batman to becoming Nightwing, and Bludhaven and all that stuff… It’s a really personal story to me.

Nightwing would be a hell of a lot easier sell if WB would do any actual planning with their movie franchises and introduce a Batman and Robin team that can grow together and then develop out. Just dropping a Nightwing movie out of the blue would be a weird ass move.
