Superhero Buzz: Future 'Spider-Man' Villains Named, Plus: Could Phil Lord and Chris Miller Direct 'The Flash'?

17 hours ago | | See recent news »

With Spider-Man: Homecoming arriving in theaters next month, there's a lot of discussion about the future of that rebooted franchise, while Star Wars' loss of directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller could be DC's gain. The latest in superhero movie news:   Lord and Miller's DC Meeting Following the surprising news that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were exiting the Han Solo Star Wars spin-off in the middle of production, The Wrap reported that the duo met with DC Entertainment about directing The Flash. They worked on the project two years ago as early treatment writers but weren't attached to helm the movie, which is due in 2020. Currently it's expected that Robert Zemeckis will sign on to direct Ezra Miller as the...

Han Solo Upheaval: Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s ‘Star Wars’ Exit

21 June 2017 9:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last July, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller took the stage at London’s Star Wars Celebration to provide the first official update on their still-untitled Han Solo standalone feature. It was a giddy event, with the filmmaking pair talking animatedly about their affection for the character — one that Miller billed as “one of the most iconic characters of all time” — and introducing the newly cast Alden Ehrenreich to a packed house filled with cheering fans.

Now, nearly one year later, the pair have unexpectedly departed the project, leaving the fate of the feature — one that has been in production for months, and reportedly has “several weeks” left, along with a planned series of reshoots for the summer — without a director and Lord and Miller without their latest passion project.

Announced via an official Lucasfilm statement on Tuesday afternoon, the departure shook up Hollywood and left plenty of lingering questions. We may have a few answers, thanks to a slew of reports hitting the wire as the industry scrambles to make sense of one of the few times in recent memory when Hollywood news was actually shocking.

Blame Creative Differences (No, Really)

If nothing else, it does seem that the old Hollywood chestnut of “creative differences” is to blame in this case. In yesterday’s official statement on the duo’s exit from the project, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said, “Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways.”

The filmmakers added in their own portion of the statement, “We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew.”

But those differences might have stemmed from a number of places, including clashes with high-powered producers and collaborators who ultimately decided the fate of Lord and Miller’s project.

They Clashed With Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan

Over at Variety, an exclusive report holds that the pair left the project “after months of conflict with producer Kathleen Kennedy, others from her LucasFilm team, and co-writer and executive producer Lawrence Kasdan.”

The report adds that “while Kennedy wants to make a splash by hiring young indie directors such as Gareth Edwards (‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’) and Rian Johnson (‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’), she’s ultimately unwilling to empower them to make their own creative decisions.”

Lord and Miller, however, have long worked within the studio system on such wide-ranging films as “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” and “21 Jump Street” — both successes that smack of their special brand of humor — and likely did not expect to be so closely monitored while executing their vision. The outlet’s examination of the surprising departure holds that the directors “were stunned to find that they were not being granted freedom to run the production in the manner that they were accustomed to. They balked at Kennedy’s tight control on the set.”

The producer reportedly wasn’t a fan of their “shooting style and process of interacting with actors and crew,” which tends to be free-wheeling, collaborative, and open to improvisation. In what will likely be the defining color quote from the entire incident, a source told Variety,” It was a culture clash from day one. She didn’t even like the way they folded their socks.”

The Hollywood Reporter bolsters that report with their own, adding that “the friction was felt almost immediately when the movie began shooting in February, sources say, but the directors always thought it could be worked through…the duo also didn’t feel they had the support of producer Allison Shearmur, who was acting as Lucasfilm’s representative on the London set.”

Both Variety and THR report that Miller and Lord’s culture clash also extended to “Star Wars” mainstay and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, with Variety adding that, “Like Kennedy, he questioned many of the pair’s directing choices.”

THR’s own report holds that “the style and vision of Lord and Miller clashed with that of Lawrence Kasdan, the legendary screenwriter behind the classics ‘Empire Strikes Back’ and ‘‪Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ who also wrote, with his son, Jon Kasdan, the script for the Han Solo stand-alone.”

And that free-wheeling style? It could be to blame, with THR weighing in that “Lord and Miller have a comedic sensibility and improvisational style while Kasdan favors a strict adherence to the written word — what is on the page is what must be shot.”

Lord and Miller’s Exit Was Sudden

THR reports that the pair “were said to have been blindsided by the firing, which they learned about Monday, according to one source, although another disputed that account.” The duo had both moved to London months ago for pre-production and production.

As of now, the film has “gone on a short hiatus to review what had been shot and to clear the air.”

The Pair May Already Be Lining Up Their Next Feature

Lord and Miller previously wrote a treatment for DC’s “The Flash” back in 2015, and a new report holds that they may be on deck to direct the film, which has already cycled through directors Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa on its way to the big screen.

The Wrap reports that the pair met with DC during a planned production hiatus from the film. The outlet holds that “the duo met about the possibility of directing ‘The Flash’ after Rick Famuyiwa left the project over creative differences last year, according to multiple individuals familiar with the project, adding that “it was unclear whether they were already considering an exit from the ‘Han Solo’ project” at the time of the meeting.

The Flash will next appear in “Justice League,” played by Ezra Miller, who first appeared in last year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” While the standalone feature has struggled to find a director, there have long been rumors that Robert Zemeckis would step in — but could Lord and Miller best him for the gig?

The Project May Be Close to Locking a New Director

Inevitably, Lord and Miller’s exits opens the door for another director’s splashy entrance. At Deadline, a new report holds that Ron Howard is the current front-runner to take over the film. Other names like Kasdan and Joe Johnston have been floated already, but Deadline seems set on Howard stepping into the role.

The outlet reports, “In Howard, Disney’s getting a pro who can step right in and keep the picture on track for a May 2018 release. He has been busy as ever and recently agreed to direct a feature docu on Luciano Pavarotti while developing numerous features that include an adaptation of the publishing phenomenon of ‘Hillbilly Elegy’…he might well step right in here and keep the Solo film on track.”

THR holds that “Lucasfilm and owner Disney have already targeted their replacement, although the companies are keeping mum.”

In its official statement, Lucasfilm promised that a new director will be announced soon, and that this decision would not immediately affect the film’s release date, which is still tentatively set for May 25, 2018.

The Flash: Could The Former Han Solo Directors Hop On The Dceu Project?

21 June 2017 8:06 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Yesterday, we were hit with the bombshell news that Han Solo directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller would be stepping down as directors of the Star Wars spinoff. The cited reason was creative differences, and based on the reports that followed, it sounds like that is most definitely the case. As even Lord and Miller acknowledged, it’s a tired, clichéd line, but that doesn’t stop it from being true in this case.

Click Here To Learn More About Their Firing

However, this does bring up one big question: what’s next for Lord and Miller? Admittedly, I’m not too worried about them. They’re talented filmmakers, and they’ll go on to direct amazing things in the future. That being said, we can’t help but wonder what’s next on the docket. A new report from TheWrap points to an interesting DC project.

According to the outlet, Lord and Miller met with DC Films during the production hiatus of the Han Solo spinoff film about the possibility of taking on The Flash. Sadly, that’s all the information we have about it, but it could potentially lead to them helming the long in-development project.

The Flash has had a bit of an arduous history. A couple years back, Lord and Miller wrote a story treatment for the film. They were offered to direct it, but declined due to their busy schedule. Seth Grahame-Smith signed on to write the screenplay and direct the script, but dropped out in April of 2016. Not long after, Dope director Rick Famuyiwa hopped on board to helm the project — he even went so far as to cast Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. However, creative differences got the better of his relationship with DC Films, and he dropped out that same October.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that The Flash would have a page one rewrite, and rumors started to fly about who could possibly take the helm of the project. Now, with Lord and Miller free from the Han Solo film — and with the previously-mentioned meeting having been rumored by TheWrap — is it possible that they’ll hop from Disney to Warner Bros. to take on the Scarlet Speedster? It almost feels like a poetic inevitability. They did, after all, write the original treatment, so it'd be nice to see things come full circle.

What do you think of this news? Can you see the pair taking on The Flash? Let us know your thoughts down below!

Lord and Miller spoke with Warner Bros. about directing The Flash during Han Solo production hiatus

21 June 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night it was reported that directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have exited the Han Solo Star Wars Anthology movie due to “creative differences”, with the duo reportedly fired from the production after their vision clashed with that of screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan.

Prior to their exit, production on Han Solo was put on hold in order for Lucasfilm to take stock of their progress on the film, during which time Lord and Miller are said to have been in touch with Warner Bros. about potentially directing the DC Extended Universe solo movie The Flash.

The Lego Movie and Jump Street helmers were previously attached to The Flash back in 2015, penning the treatment for the movie. Since then, both Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa have been attached to direct, before exiting themselves due to creative differences.

At present, Robert Zemeckis is said to be the front runner to direct The Flash after both Sam Raimi and Marc Webb passed on the opportunity. Matthew Vaughn has also been rumoured as a potential candidate.

The Flash will star Ezra Miller as the Scarlet Speedster alongside Kiersey Clemons as Iris West and Billy Crudup as Henry Allen. It is currently without a set release date.

Superman Returns On This Striking Justice League Poster; Trailer Reveal Planned For San Diego Comic-Con

20 June 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

How fitting is it that Warner Bros. and DC plan to unveil the new (and perhaps final?) trailer for Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s Justice League at San Diego Comic-Con next month?

Last year, the studio showcased a special reel of footage to those in attendance at Hall H and now, almost a full year later and with Snyder’s ensemble movie fast approaching the finish line – with the help of Joss Whedon (Batgirl), of course – Warner Bros. is reportedly ready to roll out the second full-length Justice League trailer.

Word comes by way of Twitter, which also unearthed the film’s brand new poster (see below). It retains the same style and color scheme of previous Justice League one-sheets, wherein all DC icons stand shoulder to shoulder, staring off into the distance at some unseen threat. But this time, Superman returns. And not a moment too soon.

Rumor: Aquaman Costumes To Be Shown Off At Comic-Con, Will Introduce Nth Metal

It’s no secret that Wonder Woman is the superhero movie of the moment – and for very good reason, it seems – but with the cameras already rolling Down Under, DC fans are quietly beginning to keep a close eye on the standalone Aquaman outing.

Headed up by horror maestro James Wan – in fact, Arthur Curry’s solo movie will reportedly have a horror slant when it makes land late next year – Aquaman will herald the return of Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as DC’s King of the Seven, after he was first introduced to the grand Dceu via a small cameo role in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. But if Zack Snyder’s titanic event movie handled the King of Atlantis rather poorly, Wan’s spinoff will look to portray Aquaman in a new light and maybe – just maybe – reinstate his status as a badass icon among the DC roster. »

Rumor: The Caped Crusader Will Be Returning To Gotham During Its Darkest Hour In The Batman

4chan is at it again. With Wonder Woman reigning supreme at the box office – for the record, Patty Jenkins’ DC origin movie has racked up $440 million worldwide, and is now the third highest-grossing domestic film of 2017 behind Beauty and the Beast and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – the DC Extended Universe has been thrust under the microscope once again, and 4chan has relayed the latest helping of DC-related speculation for us to dissect.

Coming to us by way of Reddit, before we get into things, it’s important to stress that 4chan’s report ought to be filed firmly in the rumor cabinet for now – remember, Warner Bros. plans to keep a lid on its release plans for the likes of The Batman, The Flash, and Gotham City Sirens until Justice League swoops into theaters in November.

Looks Like Iris West Will Crop Up For A Cameo Role In Justice League After All

13 June 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was almost written in the stars. Kiersey Clemons, the up-and-coming actress who first turned heads and raised eyebrows as Cassandra “Diggy” Andrews in Rick Famuyiwa’s rather excellent Dope, landed the coveted role of Iris West in The Flash solo movie last year, during which time Famuyiwa was still attached to direct.

Sadly, that reunion wasn’t to be, after Famuyiwa bowed out of the standalone project citing creative differences – the same reasoning for Seth Grahame-Smith’s abrupt departure – and though nothing has been set in stone at the time of writing, Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn has reportedly emerged as the latest frontrunner to helm the Barry Allen solo gig. Whether that holds true will be told in time, but one thing’s for sure: The Flash isn’t quite out of the woods yet when it comes to those production woes.

Justice League Dark and Batgirl next on DC movie slate

7 June 2017 10:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jun 8, 2017

Warner Bros wants to get Joss Whedon's Batgirl film, and Justice League Dark, filming in 2018...

Wonder Woman is currently atop the box office, off the back of the best reviews that the DC Extended Universe has earned to date. Justice League pick-up filming is getting underway in London ahead of its November release. Aquaman is filming right now too.

But what follows next? The Flash is still hunting for a new director, and The Batman is awaiting director Matt Reeves’ time, meaning it's unlikely to appear before 2019. We know that Suicide Squad 2 is likely to film at some point next year too, if Warner Bros can find a director for it.

Yet it seems the next priorities for the studio are actually changing. The focus seems to be on Joss Whedon’s Batgirl movie, and the planned Justice League Dark film. It’s being reported »

Justice League Success Will Determine Future Dceu Movies

6 June 2017 5:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It wasn't Batman V Superman, the first time these heroes ever shared the big screen together in live-action, that managed to bring hope to the DC Extended Universe. It wound up being Wonder Woman, which totally ruled the box office this past weekend and wowed critics and fans alike. One might think that would lead Warner Bros. to respond and firm up some future plans based on that success, but it sounds like they are actually going to play the waiting game a bit. According to one analyst, it is Justice League that will really determine the future of the Dceu.

Forbes writer Mark Hughes recently wrote a fairly extensive article on the future of female superhero movies within the Dceu. Given the success of Wonder Woman, one might think that we will be getting a whole bunch. And soon. But that doesn't sound like the plan. Instead, they are »

Full Dceu Release Slate Will Reportedly Be Decided After Justice League Launches In November

6 June 2017 1:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A new report compiled by Forbes suggests Warner Bros. has no plans to announce firm release dates for any of its future DC movies – Aquaman notwithstanding – until gauging the performance of Justice League in November.

Those allegations were buried in a piece about Wonder Woman, its success, and why scheduling issues will likely prevent director Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot from re-teaming anytime soon. Don’t worry, both are still contracted for the next chapter in the story of Diana Prince, but with Jenkins attached to develop a TV series – not to mention Gadot’s commitment to Justice League – it’ll be some time yet before moviegoers catch a glimpse of a Wonder Woman solo movie that takes place in modern-day America.

New Dceu Intro Hints at Green Lantern in Justice League

Did you get out to see Wonder Woman this weekend? If the box office take is any sort of indicator, and it most definitely is, there is a good chance you are one of the many who got the chance to see what most people are calling the first great movie in the DC Extended Universe. Those of you who did see it were treated to the brand new Dceu intro which is pretty much a short love letter to DC Comics fanboys and fangirls who have been wanting to see these characters on the big screen. Not only is the intro pretty cool, but it is absolutely loaded down with DC Heroes, and that could mean big things for the future.

Warner Bros. has, unfortunately, not yet officially released the new Dceu intro online. However, because so many people saw the movie over the weekend, many fans have already checked it out. »

Wonder Struck: Interview with Wonder Woman's Gal GadotWonder Struck: Interview with Wonder Woman's Gal GadotBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine5/31/2017 10:00:00 Am

You’ve already met the new Wonder Woman.

Gal Gadot was introduced as DC Comics’ Amazon princess last year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, when the Israeli actor’s sly portrayal of the third most enduring superhero in comic book history stole the show from her caped co-stars. Only Supes and the Bat have been continuously published longer, having been around since the late 1930s.

Wonder Woman has been in print since late 1941, except for a few months during the 1980s.

There’s much more to learn about the demigoddess, though, and this year moviegoers are going to get two big lessons. The standalone Wonder Woman movie opens this month, and in November she and Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne will go about forming »

There’s A Storm Coming In This International TV Spot For Justice League

30 May 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Diana Prince and Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader are left with little choice but to unite the league in this international TV spot for Justice League.

Barring the brief exchange between Gal Gadot’s Immortal Warrior and Batman at the beginning, you’d be forgiven if today’s promo left you with a general feeling of ‘been there, done that.’ Nevertheless, set against a suitably remixed version of “Come Together” by The Beatles, up above you’ll see all six costumed crusaders come together in the face of a common enemy. And though Warner Bros. is keeping a firm lid on the actual specifics of Justice League‘s story, those who have seen Batman V Superman will know that Ciarán Hinds’ all-powerful Steppenwolf isn’t too far away, and that’s before you even factor in Darkseid and those Mother Boxes.

In the fallout of Batman V Superman, when Zack Snyder’s admittedly divisive event film ushered in the Dawn of Justice, it was always inevitable that Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel would spend much, if not all of Justice League‘s marketing campaign waiting in the wings.

That’s because, by the time the credits rolled on Batman V Superman two years ago, the latter had sacrificed himself for the good of humanity, leaving Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor to gloat that Superman’s death (?) had left the fate of the planet in a precarious place. Cue the advent of Ciarán Hinds’ all-powerful Steppenwolf.

The Flash: Alleged Tidbits Fuel Speculation That Matthew Vaughn Has Been Offered The Barry Allen Solo Gig

30 May 2017 6:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Had things panned out differently, the DC Extended Universe would be carving out room for both Aquaman and The Flash in 2018. Granted, the former is still on course to light up theaters next December, but creative trouble and internal changeovers have ostensibly beset the Scarlett Speedster’s spinoff movie ever since it was first announced to the world.

Seth Grahame-Smith came and went, as did Dope helmer Rick Famuyiwa, forcing Warner Bros. to quietly pluck The Flash from its original 2018 release slot and place it on the shelf, where it’s remained ever since. That being said, over the past few weeks there have been some promising signs of progress, after Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) Sam Raimi, and VFX whizzkid Robert Zemeckis all became linked with the troubled standalone pic. Still no word on whether Warner Bros. has reached a final decision – mind you, Raimi has reportedly bowed »
