Justice League Review

Justice League is a “step in the right direction” in that instead of tumbling down an upwards-climbing escalator on an endless loop, DC has now managed to brace itself on a bottom step, clutching the handrail in a dizzied, confused daze. Patty Jenkins blazed a trail for franchise improvement with Wonder Woman, but this Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon double-team steps right back into the Dceu’s own mismanaged stink.

Forced “humor” clashes with Snyder’s brand of glib intensity, action sequences rage with no captivation, backstory establishment gets tossed aside – but yes, it’s far more “fun” than Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. For whatever that’s worth? Marvel cultivated their rivaling luminescent, “bright side” universe through patience and genuine charisma – DC just wants to bottle the same magic, hellbent on replicating an existing formula without understanding.

The Justice League’s first venture is to prevent Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), a cosmic warlord,

Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown reportedly offered lead in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair

According to That Hashtag Show, Stranger Things’ breakout star Millie Bobby Brown has been offered the lead role of Kill Pole in The Chronicles of Narnia reboot The Silver Chair.

The site reports that TriStar Picturs made the offer back in April, although it’s unclear whether Brown has accepted.

Based on the sixth book in C.S. Lewis’ series, The Silver Chair sees an old Prince Caspian enlisting the help of Jill Pole and Eustace Scrubb to find his lost heir Prince Rillian.

The Silver Chair is being directed by Joe Johnston (Captain America: The First Avenger), in what is said to be his final outing as a director. Production is slated to get underway in New Zealand in 2018.

Brown, who can currently be seen in the second season of Stranger Things on Netflix, is set to make her big screen debut in 2019 with Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Millie Bobby Brown To Headline The Chronicles Of Narnia Reboot?

TriStar Pictures is swinging for the fences when it comes to its fabled Chronicles of Narnia reboot.

Six years after Voyage of the Dawn Treader limped miserably into theaters, the studio is said to be mounting a new take on C.S. Lewis’ fantasy epic, beginning with an adaptation of The Silver Chair. It’s a reboot that has languished in pre-production for almost a year, but That Hashtag Show brings word of an exciting new development: Millie Bobby Brown has reportedly been offered the chance to spearhead TriStar’s revival.

The Stranger Things actress is arguably one of the biggest child actors on the planet, and is already beginning to make in-roads into Hollywood thanks to her involvement in Godzilla: King of the Monsters – look for that one to debut in March of 2019.

As for this potential casting coup, That Hashtag Show warns that this offer was allegedly made in April,

Narnia: The Silver Chair Is Director Joe Johnston's Final Movie
We haven't heard anything about The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair since late April, when director Joe Johnston signed on. Sony hasn't issued a formal release date at this time, but the filmmaker put in an appearance at Paris Comic Con, where he not only confirmed that production will begin next winter, with prep work starting next July, but also that this will be his last movie as a director. Here's what he had to say, when asked during an interview if this will in fact be his last directorial effort, while also confirming the production schedule.

"That's the plan. It will take a couple of years to make the film as we won't be able to start shooting next winter in New Zealand, on the South Island, which will be summer down there. And post and the visual effects will take another year and it'll be 2019, and I

“That’s the plan,” said Johnson when asked if it will be his last movie (via Arts). “It will take a couple of years to make the film as we won’t be able to start shooting next winter in New Zealand, on the South Island – it’ll be summer down there – and post and the visual effects will take another year and it’ll be 2019, and I think I’m ready to go do something else.

Actor Jeff Goldblum has offered up some details regarding his return in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Goldblum, long a fan-favourite actor thanks to his peculiar mannerisms and interesting characters choices, will be returning as Dr. Ian Malcolm – last seen in The Lost World: Jurassic Park II – for the sequel to the immensely successful Jurassic World.

The series return has been a big success and has made Fallen Kingdom one of the most anticipated blockbusters on the Hollywood calendar. But just what can fans expect from Ian Malcolm’s return? Goldblum offers up some details to Radio Times.

If You Long For The Days Of Marvel One-Shots, Eric Pearson Has News For You

Once upon a time, the Marvel Cinematic Universe did not rely simply upon post-credit scenes to add content to the fabric that holds its franchise instalments together. It also created short films – known as Marvel One-Shots – that were designed to provide an opportunity for the giant brand to experiment with other, lesser-known characters, while filling the gaps in storytelling that inevitably open up within the confines of such a vast narrative endeavour. These short films became highly anticipated gems, and were included with Blu-ray releases of theatrical movies. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a Marvel One-Shot since 2014, but that may be a situation that’s heading for change.

Eric Pearson is a co-screenwriter (with Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost) for Thor: Ragnarok, which is about to release in cinemas. The movie is his first feature length script, but he’s highly experienced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – having worked his

Jeff Goldblum was offered a role in Captain America: The First Avenger

Jeff Goldblum is set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe this month as he takes on the role of The Grandmaster in Thor: Ragnarok, but it turns out we could have seen him as part of the McU much sooner as Kevin Feige has revealed that he was wanted for a small role in Captain America: The First Avenger.

“I think we spoke to him or offered him a role in Captain America: The First Avenger,” Feige tells Uproxx. “I think the role of the senator that was part of that Uso tour in the first Captain America film. And he either wasn’t available or wasn’t interested or whatever. And thank goodness, because that would have just been a small thing and instead we got to wait for the Grandmaster, which is about as amazing as a Jeff Goldblum ‘Goldblum-iness’ could be.”

‘Wonder Woman’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner, Eugene Brave Rock, Lucy Davis, Elena Anaya, Ann Wolfe, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Ann Ogbomo, James Cosmo, Martin Bishop | Written by Allan Heinberg | Directed by Patty Jenkins

Following her scene-stealing appearance in Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman finally gets her own movie. Yes, she brought the Junkie Xl theme with her, the whole thing revolves around the silly Dawn of Justice, and there’s an obscene amount of speed-ramping, but bear with it, because Wonder Woman is actually, refreshingly, breathtakingly good.

With a few additions, this origin tale tells the story of Wonder Woman as the comic book literate would recognise it: moulded from clay and raised as an Amazon warrior on the all-female island of Themyscira, Diana – daughter of Queen Hippolyta and King of the Gods Zeus – travels to the world of mortals

Thor: Ragnarok’s Jeff Goldblum Was Originally Eyed For Captain America

Before he was cast as Sakaar’s gleefully eccentric Grandmaster, Jeff Goldblum was approached about a totally different role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In anticipation of Thor: Ragnarok hitting theaters, Uproxx caught up with Marvel boss Kevin Feige, who reflected on Goldblum’s first foray into the bustling world of superhero movies. But had things panned out differently, ol’ Jeff Goldblum would have been drafted into the McU long before the God of Thunder touched down on Sakaar; in fact, the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom star came close to playing Senator Brandt in Captain America: The First Avenger.

If that name sounds familiar, it should; Brandt was the one responsible for recruiting the young Steve Rogers in the first place, and later transformed Chris Evans’ character into the star-spangled hero we know and love. Michael Brandon wound up landing the role in 2011, and it’s fair to say that
