The Flash truly seems to be the most problematic film in the DC Extended Universe so far. For one, the film has already lost two directors in Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa, although Matthew Vaughn and Robert Zemeckis have both recently been rumored to take over (and Sam Raimi and Marc Webb said to have passed on the chance).
Secondly, and most importantly, the movie has seen a ton of rewrites. Typically, when a script receives so many rewrites, it’s to fix a recurring problem. How much of a problem? There is no way to know. However, according to a rumour on Reddit, the script is done and now tells the perfect “coming of age” story. Found on r/DCEULeaks, the anonymous poster “Self.Dceuleaks” had some good news regarding the script:
“The Scarlet Speedster (2019): The script has been completed and approved after Many drafts and rewrites. The »

Cartoon Network will host Warner Bros' DC Super Hero Girls animated series, which starts next year...
Warner Bros and DC Entertainment are set to bolster the female representation in their animated output, teaming with Cartoon Network for a show entitled DC Super Hero Girls. Despite the on-the-nose title - which it shares with a toy range, a series of online shorts and some straight-to-video movies - this sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

Cbr's report tells us that the animated series will feature "fresh character designs and storytelling" from producer Lauren Faust, an Emmy winner, who's known for her work on Powerpuff Girls, My Little Pony and Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. Sam Register - Warner Bros' animation boss, and overseer of Teen Titans Go! and Justice League Action - is also on board as an exec producer. »
Less than a year after signing on to bring DC’s dark fantasy universe to movie screens, Doug Liman has stepped down as director of Warner Bros.’ “Justice League Dark,” individuals close to the production told TheWrap. WB is now looking for another director to take the helm, with “It” director Andy Muschietti among the top contenders. Based on the DC comics, “Justice League Dark” features the wizard-for-hire John Constantine, elemental Swamp Thing, the ghost Deadman, magician Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon as they team up to battle threats beyond the ability of the traditional Justice League. Plot details are being kept under wraps. »

Sources tell Variety that director Doug Liman has left the project. Insiders say the reason is schedule-related, as Liman is also attached to direct Lionsgate’s “Chaos Walking,” which recently received a greenlight. Sources say the studio has already started meeting with other directors and should have a replacement for Liman lined up shortly.
Warner Bros., the studio behind the adaptation, had no comment.
While plot details are being kept under wraps, “Dark Universe” revolves around a dark Justice League team that consists of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon. The film will play a major role in the new D.C. Cinematic Universe.

It looks like DC Super Hero Girls is about to become a full fledged cartoon series. Cartoon Network will bring the animated action-comedy from Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment to air in 2018 with My Little Pony’s Lauren Faust and Justice League Action’s Sam Register acting as producers.
The series will expand the direct-to-dvd movies and webisodes that were launched in 2015, showing DC’s famous female heroes and villains navigating the social structure of high school while becoming superheroes. The official synopsis for the series is below:
The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara and Barbara, alongside their Super Hero friends have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from some of the most sinister school-aged Super-Villains of the DC Universe. After all, being teens is tough enough, what with school, friends, family and »

While some of DC’s heaviest hitters continue saving the day a global scale in the publisher’s flagship team-up book, Justice League, up and coming scribe Steve Orlando has been carving a different niche with a ragtag team consisting of Batman, Black Canary, Lobo, the Ray, the Atom, Vixen and Killer Frost over in the pages of Justice League of America.
In the latest episode of DC All Access, co-host Jason Inman had the privilege of chatting with Orlando about the soon to be released issue #7. Aside from placing the antagonistic focus on the attention seeking Terrorsmith, readers will definitely want to keep their eyes affixed to the possibly budding romance involving Caitlin Snow and Ryan Choi.
Personally, I think the character of Killer Frost is one of the biggest crossover draws to be co-headlining this series aside from Batman. In addition to luring in fans of The Flash TV series, »

Wonder Woman/Diana, Supergirl/Kara and Batgirl/Barbara next will grapple with high school life (as well as fight some crime!) on Cartoon Network, as the DC Super Hero Girls online shorts get reimagined as a full-on animated action-comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation.
Featuring “fresh character designs” and storytelling from Emmy-winning producer Lauren Faust (Super Best Friends Forever, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic), DC Super Hero Girls is set to land on Cartoon Network in 2018.

Will the Amazonian be the woman who finally breaks the Hollywood glass ceiling?
Wonder Woman, starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot as Princess Diana of Themiscrya, premieres on June 2, just 12 days away, and the fate of all the superwomen and their eponymous movies who would follow her lies in the ability of her sword-wielding, shield-bearing, gold lassoing hands and her armor-plated breast to vanquish the biggest and baddest super-villain of them all: Box Office.
I’ve watched every trailer and clip that Warner Bros. has released, and though they were all great, the very best of all of them, im-not-so-ho, was Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Every time Ms. Gadot showed up, whether it was in her guise as Diana Prince or as Wonder Woman, the movie morphed from an overbearing, weighted down slog through mud into »

Announced back in March, Sony are pushing forward with their R-rated Venom spin-off movie by revealing that Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) will be putting on the symbiote suit with Ruben Flischer (Zombieland) directing. The movie goes into production this Fall, and will not be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Read more here.
Speaking of long-gestating projects, and Universal Studios may have found their replacement for Antoine Fuqua on their Scarface remake by arranging talks with David Ayer (Suicide Squad). Ayer is not confirmed yet, and he’s got a busy schedule coming up with Suicide Squad spin-off Gotham City Sirens over at DC and Warner Bros. Read more here.

Developed and manufactured in partnership with Prime 1 Studio, we are proud to present Darkseid from Justice League New 52. Darkseid is the ruler of Apokolips and Darkseid’s Elite and was a major player in the cosmic war that was the Final Crisis. Unto the hell that is Apokolips came Darkseid, pure hatred personified, a merciless tyrant who demanded unwavering devotion and abject fear from all his subjects. A being of unparalleled strength, Darkseid nevertheless preferred not to sully his gloves with combat unless provoked to action. His eyes emitted the formidable Omega Sanction, ray beams that could disintegrate, teleport, or resurrect depending on the dread lord’s wishes. »

As a fan of DC Comics this year is pretty exciting. We are a few weeks away from Patty Jenkin's Wonder Woman and a couple of months away from Zack Snyder's Justice League. If that wasn't enough, we know that James Wan is currently filming Aquaman starring Jason Mamoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman and Patrick Wilson. A few weeks ago Warner Bros. Pictures released the Justice League trailer where we got a really good look at the King of Atlantis, and a brief glimpse of Queen Mera. Although there had already been an image of Mera released earlier, yesterday Wan treated us to our first look at "Lady" Mera on set via his Twitter.
Check out the image below.

It’s hard to imagine Vixen as a member of the DC Universe for over 35 years now, an early victim of the DC Implosion before arriving as a guest-star in Action Comics. She’s been a constant presence if not a major one, but was exactly in the range of secondary characters ripe for development for television since her powers were not entirely special effects-laden.
Interestingly, she was brought to The CW through their CW Seed website, a way to expand the Arrowverse with original content. In 2015, there were six short animated episodes that performed well enough that a second season arrived last October. The dozen episodes have now been edited into a 78-minute feature, Vixen the Movie, out now from Warner Home Entertainment.
The series is only kinda sort of close to the source material as we learn of Mari Jiwe McCabe’s (Megalyn Echikunwoke) upbringing in the African land of Zambesi, »

Warner Home Entertainment is commemorating Wonder Woman’s 75th Anniversary leading up to the June 2 release of Patty Jenkins’ feature film. Joining in on the fun is this week’s rerelease of 2009’s animated film, directed by Lauren Montgomery.
This new edition, out as a Combo Pack with Bu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD, comes with just one new extra (the old ones remain): What Makes a Wonder Woman with a nice assortment of people chatting about her cultural significance, including Jenkins, Montgomery, Phil Jimenez, William Moulton Marston biographer Jill Lepore, and a few others for good measure.
Here’s our original review, which remains unchanged:
The DC Universe series of animated features got off to a rocky start with the Superman vs. Doomsday offering but has gotten steadily better. New Frontier was pretty amazing and now they offer up Wonder Woman, which may be the closest we get to »

This review contains minor spoilers.
DC isn’t messing around with “The Lazarus Contact,” pulling out all the stops to ensure it’s a worthy follow-up to “The Judas Contract.” We’ve already been treated to a fantastic start in Titans #11; now, it’s time for the two teams to collide in Teen Titans #8. It’s a superhero party for the ages, and the Justice League isn’t invited.
So, what happens this time around? Well, when the Teen Titans realize that Wally West (Kid Flash) is missing, they head off to the older Titans for answers. El douche himself, Damian Wayne (Robin), demands an explanation from his former partner Dick Grayson (Nightwing), who finally admits to making a deal with Deathstroke years ago. What’s this deal, you may ask? Your guess is as good as mine right now, since the contents of their pact are never revealed here. »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword found itself struggling at the box office this past weekend, grossing just $15.4 million from its domestic opening, and a further $29.1 million from international markets, including $5 million from China.
According to THR, the Guy Ritchie-directed medieval fantasy is expected to gross no more than $145 million globally. Given that Warner spent $175 million making the film, and many millions more on its marketing campaign, it has been reported that Warner will be looking at a loss in the region of $150 million.
Should the studio take that kind of hit, it would surpass the $125 million loss that Paramount suffered on Monster Trucks, making it the biggest box office bomb of the year to date. Fortunately for Warner Bros., the studio has some big hitters on the way this year in the likes of Wonder Woman, Dunkirk and Justice League, which should help to soften the blow.
