Outrage Over Superhero Casting

8 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Warner Bros Pictures and DC Comics recently released their full slate of upcoming comic book movies through the year 2020. Outside of Justice League and Wonder Woman, two other announcements really stood out. The Flash and Aquaman will be getting their own films in 2018. With The Flash TV show just premiering to great numbers it makes sense to bring that character to the cineplexes. Well DC has other ideas about who will be playing The Flash.

Along with the announcement of the film, it was announced that The Flash would be played by Ezra Miller. The young actor is best known for his roles in We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Critics have praised his performance in both films and he is looking like a standout star of this generation. Well that wasn’t enough for comic book fans.

Ray Fisher Talks DC "Cyborg" Film Reveal

19 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Best known as a stage actor, Ray Fisher has garnered a lot of attention for landing the plum role of DC hero Cyborg in the various upcoming films of Warner Brothers' DC cinematic universe.

Before the announcement last week, it was already known Fisher would have a part in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Beyond that though it was anyone's guess as to what he would be in, even Fisher himself was in the dark.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, the actor revealed that he had no idea Warners would announce a full "Cyborg" solo movie in 2020 until just a few hours before the announcement when the producers revealed the news to him:

"I didn't know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character. When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information [the Cyborg film], I found out then and there. »

Akshay Kumars Jaanwar to release opposite Shah Rukh Khans Happy New Year

22 October 2014 3:38 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

What Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck couldn't do, Akshay Kumar has dared to attempt. Take on Shah Rukh Khan in his Diwali domain.

While the Brad and Ben starrers Fury and Gone Girl were pushed ahead so as to not clash with Shah Rukh's Happy New Year, Akshay Kumar's Jaanwar creeps stealthily into the theatres alongside the Srk monster-release.

Suddenly out of the blue Shah Rukh Khan has competition. If we can call it that. Shah Rukh's eagerly awaited Happy New Year which no other film dared to take on, has now an Akshay Kumar starrer to reckon with.

The film is Suneel Darshan's 1999 hit Jaanwar which is being flash-released this Diwali in a new digitally enhanced avatar.

Explaining his decision to suddenly release the film on the same day as Happy New Year producer-director Suneel Darshan says, "The re-release was over-due. And what better time than Diwali? »

Ray Fisher Talks About ‘Cyborg’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

22 October 2014 2:29 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Sometimes things work out for the better.

Actor Ray Fisher was taken by surprise after Warner Brothers announced a “Cyborg” movie set for release in 2020. The actors discovered the new just a few hours before it was publicly revealed earlier this month.

“I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character,” Fisher told Entertainment Weekly. “When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.”

He signed on in March for a cameo in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and recently wrapped shooting on his part. He kept plot details a secret, but confirmed meeting many other superheroes like Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Batman (Ben Affleck).

So what can he say about this movie? »

The Conjuring Director James Wan To Helm A DC Comics Movie?

21 October 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier today, it was announced that The Conjuring director James Wan had officially signed on for the horror film’s sequel, which was recently delayed and is now slated for release in 2016. However, buried in that news story was a little hint pointing toward another project on Wan’s slate: A DC Comics film.

Wan’s Conjuring 2 directing gig comes with a nice producing deal at New Line Cinema, but Warner Brothers is interested in keeping him behind the camera for as long as possible. They see him as “an emerging major filmmaker” and they hope he will grow in that capacity on their lot. So, what better way to keep Wan around for a bit longer than hand him the reins to one of the recently-announced high profile comic book films slated for release between 2016 and 2020?

The director will reportedly “make an important movie for New Line and Warner Bros or DC. »

'Cyborg' Star Talks 'Justice League' and 'Batman v Superman'

21 October 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Warner Bros. announced in April that Broadway star Ray Fisher will make his feature film debut as Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was believed to be a smaller role that would expand in Justice League. Little did we know that Warner Bros. planned on making this 27-year-old actor a major part of their DC Comics movie universe, after last week's announcement that he will have his own Cyborg movie in 2020. During a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor also confirmed that he will star in both Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, along with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and his stand-alone Cyborg movie.

The actor revealed that he was just as surprised as the fans, since he was told only a few hours before last week's huge announcement that he will be getting his own Cyborg movie. »

Ray Fisher didn’t know about Cyborg solo movie until the official announcement from Warner Bros.

21 October 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ray Fisher – who is set to portray Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in the DC movie universe – was just as surprised as fans when it was announced there would be a Cyborg standalone film in 2020. The actor found out at the same time the fans when Warner Bros. and DC announced their film line up last week.

Fisher told Entertainment Weekly: “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character, when I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.”

Newcomer Fisher will first be seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will likely appear in both Justice League movies before taking the lead of his own movie in 2020.

So look out for Fisher »

DC's 'Cyborg,' Ray Fisher, didn't know he was getting his own movie

21 October 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Nobody told Ray Fisher the plan. The 27-year-old had no idea he was set to explode into Hollywood movie stardom, top-lining as the title character in a Cyborg movie set for release in 2020. In fact, producers called the New Jersey-born theater actor on Oct. 15 with the heads-up only hours before Warner Bros. publicly revealed its slate of mega-budget superhero movies tied to the DC Cinematic Universe—Wonder Woman, The Justice League, Suicide Squad, and Shazam among them. “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character,” says Fisher, who was hired in »

Shia Labeouf has had quite the tumultuous year, and he knows it. And now he's explaining it—or at least, he's trying to. "Metamodernism has influenced a lot of my action in the public in this last year and a half," Labeouf told Interview magazine. Ah, metamodernism. Knew it! Besides waxing philosophical about schools of thought, Labeouf also talked to Interview about what famous men have tried to help him along in his career, and what famous men he's, uh, stalked. It's all a part of an apology tour of sorts he's been on the past few weeks, where he's »

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival has announced the first of this year's many award recipients for the upcoming 30th anniversary edition of the event. They've kicked things off with their most prestigious honor, the Modern Master Award, and hey — when you've got a guy like Michael Keaton in the thick of an Oscar hunt, who better to receive such an accolade?

These are always wonderful affairs, deep dives into an artist's career with clip packages and the whole spiel.
