Wonder Woman has a love interest! According to Variety, Chris Pine is in talks to join the cast of her movie as Steve Trevor. There were obviously rumours that Scott Eastwood would be playing that character, but the site adds that he was given the choice to test for that role or take on a guaranteed supporting part in Suicide Squad. As an up and coming young actor, it's fair to say he probably made a smart choice there, but there's still no word on who he is playing in the Dccu. Patty Jenkis is directing the 2017 movie which was written by Jason Fuchs. In the comics, Trevor was Wonder Woman's love interest in World War II, and when that was retconned, he was her love interest in the present day and also the go between for the Justice League with the United States government. There's no word on »
Lena Dunham. Tracee Ellis Ross. Amy Schumer. Gina Rodriguez. Kate McKinnon. Ellie Kemper. The Hollywood Reporter assembled a TV Justice League of wonderful comedy geniuses for their latest roundtable and Nothing was off limits in a wide-ranging (and glorious) conversation about vagina patches, sexism, the lack of women in late night TV, racism and more. The stars of Girls, black-ish, Inside Amy Schumer, Jane the Virgin, Saturday Night Live and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt could not be more different, yet they've all faced very similar challenges in Hollywood. Except when it comes to nudity. "I stopped wearing the nude patch after the first season of Girls. There's not one guy who works on that show who »
Recently we laid eyes on Lex Luthor’s new comic look, and we also saw new costumes for the many members of the Justice League. Now, DC Comics has revealed Cyborg’s new look which showcases a more “loose” version of him, instead of the bulkiness he’s previously had. In the comics, Cyborg “dies” only to be regenerated into this new form. Along with the new costume seen above, check out a new four page preview for Ivan Reis and Dave Walker’s Cyborg #1 below! Cyborg #1 hits the shelves on July 22. How do you like this new look? Sound off below with your thoughts! »
Well this was inevitable. In the wake of Marvel’s Avengers series and just ahead of Warner Bros.’ Justice League “prequel” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, 20th Century Fox is reviving its own “team of superheroes” property The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Based on the Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill graphic novel of the same name, the story finds Victorian-era literary characters such as The Invisible Man, Dorian Gray, Captain Nemo, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde teaming up to fight bad guys. Per Variety, Chronicle and Predators producer John Davis is onboard to produce this new adaptation through his Davis Entertainment banner. Fox first attempted a feature film adaptation of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in 2003, with an ornery Sean Connery leading a cast that included Shane West as Tom Sawyer, a character the studio added in order to make the property more appealing to younger viewers. »

Cotrona (Superman), Megan Gale (Wonder Woman), Adam Brody (The Flash), and Common (Green Lantern) set for the main roles, before things fell apart. Warner Bros. now has other plans […]

There's a lot of fascination surrounding feature films that never quite made it to production. Just today, we learned of Cary Fukunaga's departure from his planned adaptation of Stephen King's It. I'm certain much will be made of the circumstances surrounding that decision and the promise of what could have been. That promise is ever intriguing, and one of the most compelling cases in recent memory is George Miller's axed Justice League movie. With superhero films reigning supreme in the entertainment industry and Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road dominating the cultural sphere after reaping commercial success and critical praise, curiosity about his abandoned Justice League film has reached a new peak. Australian director Ryan Unicomb and producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell, are set to indulge that curiosity with a documentary exploring the untold story of how Miler's Justice League movie fell apart.

In the lore of comic book movies that never made it out of development, director George Miller's planned Justice League is among the most buzzed about. After Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road became a commercial and critical hit, curiosity about his Justice League film has been renewed. Titled Justice League Mortal, the film had a cast ready to go, with stars including Armie Hammer (Batman), DJ Cotrona (Superman), Megan Gale (Wonder Woman), and Adam Brody (The Flash) on board. Warner Bros. announced the film in 2007 for a 2009 release before deciding to pull the plug. Read more Marvel Legend Reveals What Stan Lee Initially "Hated"

If you’ve had a chance to see Jodorowsky’s Dune or are fascinated by the approaching The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened? about Tim Burton’s attempt to bring the Man Of Steel to screens, you’ll likely be happy to learn that a new documentary team plan to chronicle George Miller’s scrapped plan to make a Justice League film. Director Ryan Unicomb and producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell have announced the project, which is working titled Miller’s Justice League Mortal. Originally announced back in 2007 aiming at a 2009 release, the film represented Warner Bros.’ last big push to build the DC Comics cinematic universe, with Miller recruiting the likes of Armie Hammer, Adam Brody, Common, Teresa Palmer and Megan Gale to star. But although the film got close to shooting, it had problems with the Us writers’ strike and faced budget issues. “We wanted to »
Following in the wake of such films as "Jodorowsky's Dune" and "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?," a new feature-length documentary is in the works about "Justice League Mortal," the DC Comics adaptation that "Mad Max: Fury Road" helmer George Miller was slated to direct before the project fell apart back in 2008.
Short film director Ryan Unicomb is teaming with producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell and Sydney-based writer/author Maria Lewis to develop the documentary which will reportedly be an unbiased account of the superhero ensemble project's gestation, development and ultimate disintegration.
Currently going by the working title of "Miller's Justice League Mortal," Unicomb is said to already have private investors lined up though he may augment that however with a crowd-funding campaign. The plan is to interview some of the cast and crew who would have been a part of the film along with showcasing some never-before-seen artwork and costumes. »

Take another look @ the origins of DC Comics' superhero 'Cyborg', aka 'Victor Stone' played by actor Ray Fisher in director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", two upcoming "Justice League" features and a standalone "Cyborg" film:
'Cyborg' was created by writer Marv Wolfman and illustrator George Pérez, debuting as a 'special insert' in "DC Comics Presents" #26 (October 1980). In 2011, Cyborg was established as a founding member of the "Justice League".
In the comic book origin story, Victor is the son of scientists 'Silas' and 'Elinore Stone', who use the young man as a test subject for 'intelligence enhancement' projects.
As the treatments begin to take effect, Victor's Iq grows to genius-levels, but he resents further treatment, striking up a friendship with 'Ron Evers', a young rebel who leads him into trouble with the law.

Now playing around the world is George Miller’s masterpiece Mad Max: Fury Road. Loaded with some of the craziest action set pieces I’ve ever seen, Fury Road is the kind of movie you need to see on the biggest and loudest screen. Trust me, Fury Road is not just a great action movie; it’s great cinema. As most of you know from the numerous trailers and featurettes, Tom Hardy stars as Max Rockatansky, a former cop who’s completely broken after losing his family. However, when Max crosses paths with Charlize Theron‘s Imperator Furiosa, he agrees to join her cause to help a group of girls reach a safe place and escape Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne).Fury Road also stars Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz, Courtney Eaton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nathan Jones and Abbey Lee. At the Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive video interview with George Miller. »

DC doesn't have the greatest track record with their cinematic endeavors, but when it comes to television, they've had some amazing hits. However, outside of animation, they didn't really branch out to many of their second tier heroes until Smallville hit the air. We were then introduced to not only the young Clark Kent, but eventually Green Arrow, Cyborg, Aquaman, Impulse and many other heroes before its ten year run ended. A year and a half later, producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg brought us Arrow, starring Steven Amell as Oliver Queen in a darker, grittier take on the hero (which has borrowed more than a little from the Batman comics), who has returned home to find that his city has been run down by corrupt politicians and a seedy criminal element. Taking on the guise of Arrow, he sets out on his own to take his city back, only »
The season finale of CWs the Flash has set up the introduction of the DC multiverse; a plot element that has been confirmed by series star Grant Gustin. We’ll see “Earth One and Earth Two in the near future.” Does this open up the possibility of the DC TV universe to connect to the film continuity?
CW’s super hero series the Flash has wrapped up its excellent freshman season, with a very busy finale that wrapped up the first year story arcs and establishes a convoluted new time stream where the architect who set the shows major events in motion—the Reverse Flash—never existed, and yet the Flash (Gustin) still does; despite the fact that it was the actions of Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanagh) that gave him his powers. (Hopefully they’ll explain how that works in season two) The show ended on an epic cliffhanger where »

Back in October, Warner Brothers officially released its ambitious slate of DC Comics adaptations. The ten-film lineup includes such films as Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, two Justice League films, and solo pictures for Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Shazam, Cyborg and Green Lantern. While solo Batman and Superman films are also expected to be crammed somewhere between now and 2020, one character is noticeably absent from this roster: blue skinned Czarnian anti-hero Lobo.
Back in 2012, Journey 2: The Center of the Earth director Brad Peyton was brought on with The Matrix producer Joel Silver to bring DC’s resident intergalactic bounty hunter to the big screen, with Dwayne Johnson tentatively attached to star.
As you can see by WB’s DC slate, Lobo is nowhere to be found, and has likely fallen into the treacherous realm of Hollywood limbo, where many finished screenplays and ambitious ideas sit »
