Power Rangers Saban’s “Power Rangers” follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Here is what we know so far. Director Dean Israelite told IGN, “I read the script and was really surprised by it and thought there was a really cool, contemporary, mature but still playful, buoyant and fun take on the material, and was updated in a really interesting way.” Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz – a writing team whose credits. »

Five years ago almost to the day we reported on the approach of a Starship Troopers reboot coming from Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. With no further announcements the project languished and Miller and Stentz jumped on board to write Top Gun 2. Don’t fret though – Variety have announced that Columbia are digging deep […]

Another reboot of a ’90s classic is in the works and this time it’s Paul Verhoeven’s sci-fi film “Starship Troopers.” Per the Hollywood Reporter, Columbia Pictures is rebooting the cult classic and has assigned Mark Swift and Damian Shannon, the writing duo who penned the upcoming “Baywatch” film and the 2009 remake of “Friday the 13th,” to write the script for the new possible franchise.
The studio is not planning on remaking the original film. Instead, it will be going back to the original themes expressed in Robert A. Heinlein’s novel about the military life of a soldier who moves up the ranks as mankind fights a war against alien bugs. No staff from the 1997 movie will be involved in the new reboot.

You may have forgotten, but half a decade ago, producer Neil Moritz (the ‘Fast & Furious‘ franchise, “xXx,” “Stealth,” “S.W.A.T.”) snapped up the rights and plotted a remake of “Starship Troopers,” with fellow producer Toby Jaffe also working on the project. Writers Zack Stentz (“Thor” and “X-Men: First Class”) and Edward Miller were tasked with knocking out a draft of the script, and a couple years ago described their movie as “[l]ess a satire, and more an actual adaptation of the [Robert A.

With the trailer for next week’s episode of The Flash, “Monster,” focusing heavily on the threat of a Kaiju-like beast and Earth-19 Harrison Wells – and understandably so – I find it quite refreshing that this generous bounty of promotional stills offer a glimpse at another major running plot thread.
What I’m referring to is that of Caitlin Snow’s gradual transition to becoming Killer Frost, which we’ve been led to believe will be come to fruition sooner rather than later. Perhaps she and the rest of us will get some answers as to what the heck is going on when she pays a visit to her mother, Dr. Tannhauser. With Caitlin previously having met her villainous Earth-2 counterpart, seeing her emotionally grapple with this transformation should make for some compelling television, to say the least.
Our titular hero, The Flash, is also not forgotten »

In tonight’s episode of The Flash, Harry returned to Earth-2, but realizing that they still need his help, the team decided to find a different version from an alternate Earth. In the end, they settled on the Harrison Wells from Earth-19, but the promo above makes it clear that there may be more to their new ally than meets the eye.
The first Harrison we met was the Reverse-Flash in disguise. Tom Cavanagh played him and the real version in flashbacks, while his Earth-2 counterpart would first show up during season two. As a result, there have now been four different versions of the character in the series, so it will certainly be interesting to see what this one is up to.
This isn’t all we have to »

Ever since we were all shocked by the news that a Booster Gold movie was confirmed to be in development this past May, information regarding the project has been rather scarce. Furthermore, many of us have wondered how the lovable time travelling superhero would gel with the currently ongoing DC Extended Universe, which focuses mostly on more well known characters or those who are currently among the ranks of the Justice League in the comics.
Well, I guess we won’t have to worry about that because Booster’s debut silver screen outing will seemingly exist in a universe unto itself. Greg Berlanti, the king of superhero adaptations on television, happens to be one of the creative minds behind the project and recently confirmed as much:
“As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds. It’d be a separate thing.”

Well, it seems that – as it stands at the moment – the project won’t be part of the wider DC Extended Universe, with Berlanti telling Vulture that: “As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds. It’d be a separate thing.”
Berlanti went on to reveal that the film has emerged from an aborted TV project that he was developing for Syfy with Andrew Kreisberg, which was ordered way back in 2011. After talks with DC Entertainment chief creative officer – and DC Films boss – Geoff Johns, it was then decided to focus on bringing the character to the big screen.
If you’re unfamiliar with Booster Gold, he is the alter-ego of Michael Jon Carter, a 25th »

Most of Warner Bros/DC Comics television prospects right now are connected and — since Man of Steel — they've made an effort to connect their film universe as well. That's why one film not existing in that universe is so surprising, though I'm not sure whether to be disappointed or excited by this latest reveal. While Booster Gold appeared on Smallville years ago (played by Eric Martsolf), a live-action project featuring just him hasn't been able to happen even though there's a lot of story potential. Booster (aka Michael Jon Carter) was created by Dan Jurgens in the '80s and hails from the 25th century. He's a regular guy. He was a star athlete who lost it all when he started betting on his own games and losing on purpose. Disgraced, he wound up with an overnight gig watching a museum where, along with a security robot named Skeets, he »

Despite very bad reviews so far, Warner Bros. appears to be dedicated to pressing ahead with their DC Comics movie adaptations. One of those upcoming adaptations, the Booster Gold movie, will offer some relief to fans who are tired of the dark tone of the DC Extended Universe, but the movie actually won't be part of the Dceu. The creative team behind the project recently revealed that Booster Gold will be its own thing.
Greg Berlanti, who produces The Flash and Supergirl and is developing Booster Gold for the big screen, spoke with Vulture about the upcoming adaptation. Berlanti was very candid about the topic when asked if Booster Gold would be part of the DC Extended Universe. Here is what he had to say about it.
"As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds. It'd be a separate thing."
So that may be a bit surprising, »
Back in March, President & Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment Geoff Johns revealed that DC has big plans for Booster Gold "in the years ahead." After reading those comments, fans were unsure whether those plans were associated with Dctv or the DC Extended Universe. However, when it was announced that a Booster Gold movie was in development with Greg Berlanti (The Flash and Supergirl) rumored to be directing, fans figured it must be a given that our golden hero would be a part of the Dceu. Well, according to Berlanti, that's not going to be the case. "As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds. It'd be a separate thing," Berlanti said while talking to Vulture. He also revealed that he and Andrew Kreisberg had a Booster Gold TV show planned years ago, but it "never got off the ground." It was only after that project »
In what can only be described as a very mixed message from Warner Bros., it sounds like there's a very real possibility that there can -- and will -- be DC Comics films that aren't set in their shared DC cinematic universe.
We've heard this before, with the folks involved in Dwayne Johnson's Shazam movie being somewhat vague about its connections to the rest of the Dceu, and now comes this from Greg Berlanti, who's trying to get a Booster Gold movie going.
"As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds," Berlanti told Vulture. "It'd be a separate thing."
Berlanti, you may know, is the man behind the lighter, more colorful DC TV shows The Flash, Supergirl, Arrow, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow. He began developing a Booster Gold film when he couldn't get a TV show based on the cocky superhero from the future off the ground. »

Suicide Squad has done well for Warner Bros., despite very negative reviews, so they are moving ahead with their DC Extended Universe, and they have a lot more planned than many of us may know about. The studio has already officially announced a large slate of upcoming movies over the next few years, but a new batch of rumors has surfaced that details their larger plans, and there are a lot of them. Not surprisingly, those plans include a Suicide Squad sequel, but there is a lot of stuff likely nobody was expecting.
The rumored plans come from a Reddit post that was put together from various posts on 4Chan. This is not official word from Warner Bros.or anything like that, so the information is not absolute and is definitely iffy. With that being said, let's dig into these rumors, because there is a lot going on here. Starting with Suicide Squad 2, which again, »
A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.The Flash may be the fastest man alive, but Grant Gustin still has a ways to go. The star of The CW's DC series adorably raced and lost to Leo, the son of The Atom actor Brandon Routh. "Leo beat me in a race today. I wasn't ready," Gustin wrote next to video of the moment on social media. Routh, who also played the Man of Steel in Bryan Singer's Superman Returns, responded, "When your dad is #Superman & #TheAtom, but you heart #TheFlash…Huge props to the crazy talented »

While Lionsgate's Power Rangers reboot doesn't have an official panel slated for Comic-Con, this highly-anticipated movie still has a big presence in San Diego. During Preview Night last night, fans got to get their first look at the convention floor, where Lionsgate put the new Power Rangers helmets on display, along with the power coins that will be seen in the movie reboot.

"I'm attached to a few films now," said Berlanti.
The character was initially depicted as glory-seeking 'showboat' from the future, using knowledge of historical events and futuristic technology to stage high-publicity heroics.
But 'Booster' develops over the course of his publication history and through personal tragedies, evolves into a true hero.
"...'Michael Carter' was born poor in the 'Gotham City' of the 25th century, speaking 'Esperanto' as his first language. »

Earlier today, we reported that Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltenheimer is so confident in their new Power Rangers movie that they want to make upwards of 6 more sequels. Since we still have almost a full year before this movie hits theaters next March, it may be a bit premature to be discussing so many movies right now, especially since Paramount and 20th Century Fox prematurely announced sequels for Terminator Genisys and Fantastic Four that are now, at best, in limbo. Just hours after that Lionsgate conference call, new photos surfaced from the set, giving us our first look at the Putty Patrollers in their CGI green screen suits, as they take on the Red Ranger (Dacre Montgomery).
The photos came from Yvr Shoots, which reveals an action-packed fight scene in the middle of the street, with Dacre Montgomery's stunt double taking on a number of these Putty Patrollers before they are digitally rendered during post-production. »
