Joss Whedon talks about his rejected Wonder Woman movie

4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back before Joss Whedon hit the big time with his colossal Marvel hits The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, the director had his heart set on helming a Wonder Woman movie which Warner Bros. ultimately rejected.

One can’t imagine Whedon gets many projects rejected nowadays, considering the considerable success of his work on Marvel’s Avengers films, but this wasn’t always the case as back in the early 2000’s the director had his script for a Wonder Woman movie turned down, and Whedon recently spoke about the failed project during an interview with Empire Magazine.

“I worked really hard on that movie and it meant a lot [to me], but I don’t know if what I was trying to do would fit in with what [the studio’s] vision is. I had to take on the film that, well, nobody liked… We just saw different movies, and at the price range »

Over the weekend it was reported that Harry Potter star David Thewlis is portraying the main villain in Warner Bros.’ next DC Extended Universe release Wonder Woman, and during the New York Toy Fair, an action figure showing said villain – Ares – was on display, giving us our very first glimpse of the God of War from the Gal Gadot-headlined solo movie; take a look here, and let us know your thoughts on the design in the comments below…

The Walking Dead: season seven, episode 10 – New Best Friends

20 February 2017 2:55 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Rick makes like Russell Crowe in Gladiator by fighting for his life in a fetid arena. What does this portend? That we’ll see no more zombies or action for weeks, I bet

• Spoiler alert: this blog is published after The Walking Dead airs in the Us on Sundays. Do not read unless you have watched season seven episode 10, which airs in the UK on Fox on Mondays at 9pm.

The first thing you learn in Fighting Zombies 101 is to avoid their teeth. If you don’t, you risk being bitten and so inducted into their club with its limited lifestyle parameters. But what they don’t teach you is how to fight a walker in helmet and body armour covered with spiky blades. This was Rick’s difficulty after the woman with the unfortunate fringe pushed him into a junkyard pit and encouraged him to make like Russell Crowe in Gladiator. »

David Thewlis reportedly playing Wonder Woman’s main villain

19 February 2017 5:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Spoilers for Wonder Woman follow…

We’ve seen a lot of marketing material for Gal Gadot’s upcoming solo DC movie Wonder Woman over the past few months, but so far Warner Bros. has done a pretty good job of keeping the film’s main antagonist under wraps.

That being said, a report in January suggested that the Amazon Princess will find herself battling Ares, the God of War – something that was supported by a first look at the action figure tie-in line, which includes an Ares Build-a-Figure.

Well, Batman-News is reporting that Ares is indeed the main villain, and that he’ll be portrayed by Harry Potter star David Thewlis, through a mixture of practical effects and CGI (which the site speculates may be the reason he’s been absent from the film’s trailers).

Thewlis’ casting was first announced by Warner Bros. back in November of 2015, but »

Arnold Schwarzenegger rumored for a DC return with Wonder Woman role

13 February 2017 12:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Both DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins have randomly decided to follow Arnold Schwarzenegger on Twitter. Whether this is coincidental or not is up to readers, but generally when these things happen the end result pans out. For some perspective, Johns recently followed Matt Reeves, and shortly after the man got the job directing The Batman.

Given that the film has already been shot, the most likely scenario is that Schwarzenegger will be called in to do some voice work or motion capture regarding a probable monstrous physical transformation on the film’s primary villain, which is reportedly Ares.

Arnold does of course have previous DC experience, having played Mr. Freeze in 1997’s Batman & Robin. He will next be seen in the Darren Aronofsky-produced Aftermath [watch the trailer here], and has also been shooting the fantasy adventure Journey »

30 January 2017 5:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ewen Bremner is currently doing interview rounds for T2 Trainspotting (read our review here) but Digital Spy got a hold of him for some tantalizing details on the character he will be playing in this summer’s Wonder Woman.

“I play a character who’s enlisted by Wonder Woman to help save the world as part of a small, unlikely band,” said Bremner. “He’s a shellshocked soldier who’s been discharged from the war and is brought back to help on a secret mission.”

28 January 2017 2:40 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Fox has given a pilot order for a TV adaptation of Justin Cronin’s post-apocalyptic vampire novel The Passage, which has Ridley Scott (Prometheus) and Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) executive producing and Elizabeth Heldens (Deception) penning the script.

The official logline reads: “The Passage begins as a character-driven government conspiracy thriller and morphs into a post-apocalyptic saga with vampires. The series spans over a century and focuses on a young girl named Amy who must save the human race.”

The Passage was published in 2010 and became a New York Times bestseller; the first instalment of a trilogy, it was followed by The Twelve in 2012 and The City of Mirrors in 2016.

Rumour: Sources who have seen Wonder Woman and Justice League are saying “good things” about them

23 January 2017 4:34 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well this is a turn of events. Just last week a report came out that Wonder Woman was “very disjointed” (which followed a report last year that called it “a mess”), and there hasn’t been a lot of positive press about Justice League either. But a new report is suggesting something entirely different.

The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez (better known as El Mayimbe) is currently at Sundance and tweeted that he bumped into his sources who are saying positive things about both Wonder Woman and Justice League.

Also, of all places, ran into 2 different sources here at Sundance, 1 saw Ww 1st cut, the other Jl. They tell me good things about each.

— Umberto Gonzalez (@elmayimbe) January 22, 2017

Interesting to hear something positive about the films, but one has to question Gonzalez’s track record as of late. His ‘scoop’ that Deadpool would feature in Logan was shot down by everyone involved in the movie, »

Rumour: Wonder Woman is “very disjointed”

17 January 2017 12:31 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Take this one with a grain of salt, gang, as this seems to be third hand information. But according to a “DC insider” Wonder Woman is a mess.

On a recent episode of the Schmoes Know show, host Sasha Perl-Raver has insider information from someone who has seen the Gal Gadot-led superhero flick. She said the following on the subject:

“So, I don’t want to throw anyone under the bus. We have somebody within our community who has gotten insider information that broke my effing heart this week, because I have tremendous belief that Wonder Woman is gonna be awesome and I heard it stinks from the same person who told me that they heard that BvS stinks…The person who I spoke to…their response was ‘I’m very disappointed in what I saw, and it seems like all the problems are the same problems.
