Scooby-Doo Will Return To Theaters, Get The Details

17 August 2015 4:13 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Warner Bros. has been working hard for years to try and get a new Scooby-Doo movie off the ground. It began in 2013, talk continued in 2014, and now in 2015 it looks like the project is actually happening. This is because the film now has a brand new director attached to make it a reality. According to Deadline, filmmaker Tony Cervone has been tapped by Warner Bros. to take the helm if a new animated Scooby-Doo film - and it makes sense when you consider his past work. The guy is a veteran of the Looney Tunes world, and even had a hand in making the 1996 film Space Jam (serving as an animation director). Meanwhile, Charles Roven and Richard Suckle are attached to the movie as producers, having previously produced the last Scooby-Doo movies, but it's still a funny development when you consider that the last project they worked on together was »

An Animated Scooby-Doo Movie Will Arrive In 2018

17 August 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was 11 years ago that Warner Bros. last tried to deliver a successful Scooby-Doo movie into cinemas – and they would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for all that pesky live-action business. For we all know that the Scooby Gang works best in animation – and it would seem that the studio behind the legendary cartoon has come to accept this, too. Warner Bros. has now confirmed that an animated Scooby-Doo film will arrive in theatres in 2018.

Scooby-Doo was created in 1969 by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, and was conceived as a Saturday morning cartoon about four teenage friends and their titular talking Great Dane. The group works together to solve mysteries that appear, on the surface, to involve elements of the supernatural. The show has continued in various guises, on and off, for thirty six years, and has enjoyed enduring fandom and popularity across generations of children and adults. »

Henry Cavill Confirms Justice League Kicks Off Pre-Production In January

13 August 2015 9:37 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last night, Henry Cavill visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his latest release Guy Ritchie's spy comedy The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and of course, the conversation naturally shifted to another one of his highly anticipated films, the Zack Snyder-directed Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. While he mostly discussed his insane Superman diet plan, which includes a very interesting cardio routine, he did happen to confirm that the upcoming two-part Justice League film, also directed by Snyder, will begin pre-production in January 2016, which is not long before BvS hits theaters in late March. Check out the funny clip below and sound off with your thoughts in the usual spot! “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”is written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer »

More Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Details Revealed

31 July 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Empire’s cover story on next year’s superhero blockbuster Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was chock-full of new photos and information about what’s surely the most anticipated film of 2016 (all necessary apologies to Finding Dory fanatics), and thanks to Batman-News, we’ve now been able to sort through every sentence of that magazine’s story to pull out some very interesting tidbits.

It was already known that Wonder Woman was beginning to shoot this fall and that Justice League was set to begin filming next spring, but the story indicates that pre-production on the latter film is already well underway.

Additionally, the piece confirms Zack Snyder’s status as the linchpin in Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe. Along with his producer and wife Deborah Snyder and producer Charles Roven, Snyder is overseeing the entire cinematic universe and even has a whiteboard in his office with the whole Dceu sketched out. »

Snyder Talks Wider DC Cinematic Universe

29 July 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Continuing our look at Empire's feature story about Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" film, Snyder has also gone into more detail about the overall DC cinematic universe plans that Warner Bros. Pictures are beginning to play out - an initiative that really gets going with "Batman v Superman" and builds from there:

"What we are doing is ground up all the way. It is one giant story. The first thing we had was the Justice League concept. The other movies, in a way, have to support that. That is our Wonder Woman, our Aquaman. They have their own creative concepts that supports them, but they do serve Justice League in the coming together of those heroes.

I want all the other directors of the other films to be able to stretch their legs and do what they want, but at the same time there is a big interconnected universe. »

New Details On Batman v Superman's Dark Knight; He Put The Suicide Squad In Prison

29 July 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The latest edition of Empire Magazine includes tons of new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice details, with a particular focus on Ben Affleck's Batman. As has been the case ever since he was cast, much of that focus revolves around the fact that the Gone Girl star is playing an older Caped Crusader than we're used to seeing. "We are playing him 45 or 46," director Zack Snyder confirms. "He has been Batman for 20 years. All the history is there. Was there a Robin at one time? Possibly." This interview obviously took place before the trailer was released as producer Charles Roven also teased the fate of a certain Boy Wonder. "He has lost those near and dear to him, and not necessarily from old age of disease..." That could of course also refer to Batman's other allies, especially as Jim Gordon's fate in the DC Extended Universe isn't all »

'Wonder Woman' Gets Chris Pine as Boyfriend Steve Trevor

28 July 2015 7:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two months after Chris Pine entered talks to portray Steve Trevor in Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman, The Wrap reports that the actor has closed his deal for the coveted role. The deal reportedly includes options for multiple movies, so it's possible that he could also be popping up in Justice League Part 1, Justice League Part 2 or any of the other upcoming movies on Warner Bros.' DC Comics slate. The site also reveals that Steve Trevor will be "more than just a love interest" for Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, and there will be "plenty of action to keep him busy."

This deal also means that Chris Pine will not be playing Hal Jordan in another DC superhero movie, Green Lantern Corps. It was rumored that the Wonder Woman negotiations were a "smokescreen," and he was really in talks for Green Lantern Corps., but that proved to be untrue. »

'Batman v Superman' Introduces Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves

28 July 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though it has been rumored for quite sometime, today we get official confirmation from DC All Access that actress Tao Okamoto is playing Mercy Graves in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The character was originally created for Superman: The Animated series back in 1996. And this is the first time she has been seen on the big screen. Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad has similar origins. Instead of springing forth from a comic book, she was created for the Batman animated series back in 1992.

Tao Okamoto was personally selected by director Zack Snyder for the role after her appearance in The Wolverine. The character can be seen in the second Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer as she leads the dead body of super villain Zod through Lex Corp Industries, a hold over from Man of Steel. Early in the production process, Warner Bros. claimed that »
