Exactly one year ago, Warner Bros. and DC Comics announced their insane 9 movie line-up that will take them through 2020. It sounded very ambitious, and some didn't think it was possible. But here we are, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is in the can, undergoing post-production work as it rockets towards its March 2016 release date. The second movie on the slate is Suicide Squad, which is currently shooting in Toronto. More than three quarters of the film has been completed, and we've already seen the first teaser trailer.

Two months after Chris Pine entered talks to portray Steve Trevor in Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman, The Wrap reports that the actor has closed his deal for the coveted role. The deal reportedly includes options for multiple movies, so it's possible that he could also be popping up in Justice League Part 1, Justice League Part 2 or any of the other upcoming movies on Warner Bros.' DC Comics slate. The site also reveals that Steve Trevor will be "more than just a love interest" for Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, and there will be "plenty of action to keep him busy."
This deal also means that Chris Pine will not be playing Hal Jordan in another DC superhero movie, Green Lantern Corps. It was rumored that the Wonder Woman negotiations were a "smokescreen," and he was really in talks for Green Lantern Corps., but that proved to be untrue. »
“Nope. No way. Not after Ghostbusters 2.”
The sequel to the live-action/animation Looney Tunes movie Space Jam (Michael Jordan, Bill Murray) has had the cliff face disappear from underneath it more times than Wild E. Coyote in pursuit of Road Runner. After today’s Warner Bros. Entertainment’s announcement that they’re partnering with NBA player LeBron James and his production company SpringHill Entertainment, however, the sequel might be back on/believe it can fly again.
In a piece of speculative connect-the-dots investigating, Capital New York reporter Alex Weprin noticed the following:
The plot thickens. Just a month ago, Warner Bros. filed new trademarks for Space Jam. Today they announce the LeBron James partnership. Warner Bros. CEO and Chairman Kevin Tsujihara said of the partnership:
“LeBron James has one of the most powerful, well-known brands in the world and we are excited to be in business with him and his partner, »

Posted via her Instagram a couple of days ago, Trainwreck star Amy Schumer has a new photoshoot in the latest issue of GQ Magazine, which sees the comedian in several racy poses with the droids of Star Wars, C-3Po and R2-D2. The shoot caused quite a stir, but a group of people it seemed to really upset where Lucasfilm, who released a statement about the shoot.
“We’ve seen some conversation on this and want to set the record straight. It’s not surprising that GQ would want to capitalize on the cultural cachet of Star Wars, but Lucasfilm and Disney did not authorize, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner.”

Ezra Miller.s The Flash was a very small component of Warner Bros.. presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, showing up on screen during a montage of concept art that teased the development of the DC Cinematic Universe. It included Wonder Woman, Cyborg and a Green Lantern Corp. movie that will happen years from now. While we wait, Miller dropped a few details about his hero, and why he decided to play him. Ezra Miller was speaking with MTV about his role in Judd Apatow.s Trainwreck, where he plays a magazine intern who works with Amy Schumer. But eventually, MTV asked Miller about The Flash, which will hit theaters on March 23, 2018 (or, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice slot). When asked why he.d be interested in playing this hero, Miller explained how Barry Allen.s Flash, during the Silver Age of comics, originally was conceived as a way »
Ezra Miller dropped by MTV recently to promote not one but two of his new movies - the Amy Schumer-led comedy Trainwreck and the real life indie drama, The Stanford Prison Experiment. While there, he opened up a little more about playing 'The Flash' on film in Zack Snyder & Warner Bros' DC Extended Universe. Unsurprisingly, he was his usual entertaining and, um... eccentric self, but he also had plenty of great stuff to say about his interest in the character. "Barry Allen is the hero of the Silver Age, who follows a lot of really interesting discoveries in physics," Miller claimed, "It's like, where he comes from, we've figured out the event horizon was there, and then he was the character that was created through our mythos machine of comic books to break that event horizon so we could explore in fantasy. I think that's an interesting »
The dust has finally settled on Comic-Con 2015, and we're left with quite a few awesome souvenirs. One of the best being the brand-new, full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which helped cap off a memorable panel for Warner Bros. that also included The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Pan and a surprise appearance from David Ayer and his Suicide Squad cast. As huge as that collective is, the Batman v Superman trailer brought down the house, giving us Much more than the underwhelming first trailer from April.
The trailer offered our first look at Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) in action, Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) doing his best Kurt Cobain impression and an explanation of exactly why Batman (Ben Affleck) has beef with Superman (Henry Cavill). But the trailer was just the tip of the iceberg, with Zack Snyder and the entire cast shedding some much-needed light on this iconic story. »
The original big screen version of Batman was one of the determinative movies of my youth. Michael Keaton was great as a troubled billionaire by day / masked vigilante by night, and his nemesis, the ruthless Joker was one of the finest villains of movie history. He was a crook to begin with, but a bath in a vat filled with unspecified chemicals turned him not just into a bleached man, but a madman as well. His memorable appearance in Tim Burton’s Batman was due not just to his quotable words (Ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight anyone?) but to the wonderful acting of multiple Academy Award winner Jack Nicholson.
The time passed, and Batman sequels appeared, but none of them could live up to the quality of the “original” one, not even its sequel directed by the same Tim Burton (Batman Returns, 1992). From there on the franchise has gone downhill, »

As the Warner Bros. presentation began in Hall H at Comic-Con this morning, the studio took an opportunity to tout its DC Comics Universe. A video played on the screens surrounding the audience that began with images of the various comics before touting the films that WB has scheduled coming up with concept art and logos: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Suicide Squad Wonder Woman Justice League 1 & 2 The Flash Aquaman Cyborg Green Lantern Corps. While it was neat to get brief glimpses at concept art of Ezra Miller as The Flash (the film very much looks to be WB/DC’s “fun” superhero movie), the biggest news to come out of this video was that the Green Lantern reboot expected in 2020 will indeed be titled Green Lantern Corps.

Here's the thing. I'm cranky, I'm old(ish), and the last thing I honestly could've cared about is the long rumored "Young Han Solo" spinoff movie. But kudos to Disney and Lucasfilm for getting my attention by hiring two of the sharpest and cleverest blockbuster writer/directors around to make this thing happen. THR reports that Phil Lord and Chris Miller will direct a "Star Wars Anthology" spinoff film centered on a young Han Solo, and it will be their next effort behind the camera. Following "Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One" next year, the initial plans was for the Boba Fett movie to land in 2018. However, that has been changed around, with the untitled Han Solo movie now officially slated for Memorial Day 2018. However, the trade notes that with Lord and Miller taking this on, it likely means their involvement with Warner Bros.' "The Flash" will end, with that »

As we stand less than a year away from what could be the definitive comic book showdown with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Superman himself, Henry Cavill, wants you to know that the face-off/team-up epic is Not a sequel to Man of Steel. In fact, he reveals that the long-term vision for the Kryptonian could depend on how Warner Bros. readies the rollout of its cinematic universe. In an interview with EW, Cavill discusses why the success of his dynamically destructive debut in the 2013 Superman relaunch has yet to even yield plans for a proper solo sequel. It seems that the road-map for the DC cinematic universe that Man of Steel launched will first shift attention to establishing other heroes in the lineup, such as Ben Affleck.s Batman, Ezra Miller.s The Flash, Gal Gadot.s Wonder Woman, and Jason Momoa.s Aquaman. According to Cavill: There »
