Joss Whedon Was Working On Justice League Before Zack Snyder’s Departure

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Zack Snyder had decided to pass the reigns of Justice League over to Joss Whedon following the tragic death of his daughter back in March. While the filmmaker was hoping to take the helm of upcoming reshoots and oversee the post-production process, he ultimately decided he couldn’t do so and asked The Avengers director to take his place and finish the movie ahead of its November 2017 release.

Now, however, Justice League and Wonder Woman producer Charles Roven has revealed that Whedon was actually involved in the production even before Snyder decided to depart.

“We’re excited about the film, of course, but we were saddened by the events that caused Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder to have to leave and turn the reins over to Joss Whedon. He was already working with us on some of the scenes for that additional photography »

Spider-Man: Homecoming UK release moved up two days

25 May 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK fans have become accustomed to getting the chance to see Marvel Cinematic Universe movies earlier than our American friends, and it seems that the inclusion of Sony on Spider-Man: Homecoming won’t change that tradition.

As noted by Digital Spy, Sony has announced that the Tom Holland-headlined reboot has been brought forward to Wednesday, July 5th, two days earlier than it debuts in North America.

Just yesterday, we got a pair of two trailers for the solo movie, which is being directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car) and marks Spider-Man’s solo McU debut following his introduction in last year’s Captain America: Civil War. Watch the new trailers here.

Wif Launches Campaign Encouraging Audiences to See “Wonder Woman” Opening Weekend

24 May 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Wonder Woman

We know where we’ll be next weekend — watching Gal Gadot kick ass on the big screen. After years of anticipation, Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” is opening in theaters. And we’ll be in attendance to support the superheroine. Women in Film (Wif) is hoping you will be, too. The non-profit has launched a campaign encouraging folks to see “Wonder Woman” during its opening weekend, June 2–3.

“‘Wonder Woman’ is an action-packed tale of female empowerment, directed by the unstoppable Patty Jenkins,” Wif writes. “Join forces to help Wonder Woman reach her destiny as a box office warrior in the big leagues. Together, we can catapult ‘Wonder Woman’ to an incredible opening weekend — blazing a trail for female superheroes and their stories for years to come.”

To say that there’s a lot of pressure on “Wonder Woman” to do well at the box office is an understatement. All big-budget blockbusters come with high expectations, but “Wonder Woman’s” success or failure will have an impact on how many female protagonists we see in franchises — and who will direct these films. There are still outdated perceptions in Hollywood that women don’t go see movies, movies about women don’t perform well at the box office, and women-directed films don’t have commercial potential. These are myths — but they are myths that many decision-makers continue to buy into. The stakes are unjustly high for “Wonder Woman,” but as Wif notes, “to support female-driven content, the best thing you can do is organize a group to see the film on opening weekend.”

Head over to Wif to commit to the campaign by signing up.

Pre-sale tickets for “Wonder Woman” are now available at AMC, Arclight, and Fandango. The latter just announced, via press release, the results of its biggest survey ever: “Wonder Woman” was voted the most-anticipated summer movie, beating out titles such as “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” More than 10,000 people voted.

According to the release, “Wonder Woman” is “currently outpacing 2011’s ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle.” That movie went on to earn over $370 million worldwide. A separate Fandango survey of “Wonder Woman” fans found that 92 percent are excited to see a standalone female superhero movie, 87 percent wish Hollywood would make more movies featuring female superheroes, and 73 percent watched the “Wonder Woman” TV show when they were kids.

“It’s a thrill to see ‘Wonder Woman’ command the top spot on our most anticipated summer movies list,” said Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “Early screening reactions are positive, with audiences responding favorably to the film’s exciting blend of action, adventure, humor, and romance. Plus, fans have been waiting their entire lives to see a live-action ‘Wonder Woman’ movie, and the film’s breakout star Gal Gadot makes it worth the wait.”

Wif Launches Campaign Encouraging Audiences to See “Wonder Woman” Opening Weekend was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

‘Wonder Woman’ Tops ‘Spider-Man,’ ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ as Most Anticipated Summer Movie

23 May 2017 8:14 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Gal Gadot‘s “Wonder Woman” was voted the summer’s most anticipated movie by fans in a Fandango survey released Tuesday, ahead of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” Rounding out the top five of movies opening Memorial Day weekend and beyond are Universal’s Stephen King adaptation “The Dark Tower” and Christopher Nolan’s WWII epic “Dunkirk.” Other films on the top 10 include “Despicable Me 3,” “The Mummy” and “Baywatch.” The Warner Bros.-DC Films release “Wonder Woman,” opening June 2, is also currently outpacing “Captain America: The First Avenger” in advance ticket sales at the same point. »

‘Wonder Woman’ Is Most Anticipated Summer Movie, According to Fandango

23 May 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros.’ “Wonder Woman” is the most anticipated summer movie, according to a survey of moviegoers by the online ticketing service Fandango.

The Silver Chair director Joe Johnston on where the Narnia movie series is heading next...

We learned a little while back that Joe Johnston, of Captain America: The First Avenger and Jumanji vintage, is to direct the reboot of the Narnia film series. He’s set to start work on The Silver Chair in earnest this year.

He’s also, though, via his YouTube account, begun answering questions about the movie and his plans for it. And in there is some new information.

With thanks to Den Of Geek reader Andrew Martin for alerting us to this, Johnston confirms in the Q&A that The Silver Chair is a full reboot of the movie series. “Everything is new”, he says. “This is the beginning of a brand-new trilogy. We will make reference to characters and events in the other films as the book does, but think of »

Tom Holland wants to play Spider-Man for the next 20 years

21 May 2017 7:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Holland made his debut as the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, and will soon be headling his own big screen adventure in Spider-Man: Homecoming, before reuniting with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel.

We do know that Holland will also be back for a Homecoming sequel, but there’s some uncertainty over his future beyond that; producer Amy Pascal has suggested that Homecoming 2 may mark the end of the collaboration between Marvel and Sony, while Kevin Feige has said that Avengers 4 is “as far as it goes for now.”

Well, it seems that Holland himself is certainly thinking long term, revealing to Empire that he’s been speaking to the powers that be about his ambition to portray the character for 20 years:

“Peter Parker is a character we see [in the comics] as a 15-year-old boy and then as a 35-year-old man. »

Another International Trailer For Wonder Woman Zooms In As Zack Snyder Fuels Sequel Chatter

15 May 2017 7:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Patty Jenkins, Zack Snyder, Chris Pine and Gal Gadot – arguably the four creative pillars of Warner Bros. and DC’s imminent Wonder Woman – were all in attendance at the film’s Shanghai premiere yesterday evening, and they took the opportunity to debut the fourth (and surely final?) international trailer for the long-anticipated solo movie.

Not only that, but while speaking to those fans lining the red carpet, Zack Snyder allegedly confirmed that a Wonder Woman sequel is indeed in the mix, though the Justice League director stopped short of disclosing any further details. Until we hear anything official from the Powers That Be, take this one with a pinch of salt, as Warner Bros. is surely hedging its bets until those box office numbers begin rolling in in a few weeks’ time. Last we reported, the Patty Jenkins-directed spinoff was tracking for a domestic bow in the region of $65 million, »

First Wonder Woman Reactions Are In, And They’re Very Positive

13 May 2017 2:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Patty JenkinsWonder Woman is now only a few weeks away and excitement is starting to mount. There’s a lot riding on the film, what with it being Warner Bros.’ chance to get their DC Extended Universe back on track, and if it’s anything other than a bonafide hit, the studio’s plans for the future could be put into serious jeopardy. Not only that, but this being a female-led superhero movie also adds another layer of pressure for Wonder Woman to deliver, as everyone waits with baited breath to see if it can pull in the same numbers at the box office as other efforts in the genre.

Early projections are modest, but not terrible, and as is always the case, it’s going to be the reviews that ultimately determine its fate. Those are still at least a few weeks out, but until they arrive, we »

The 5 Highest Grossing Movie Stars Not in a Star Wars or Superhero Movie

13 May 2017 11:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Samuel Brace on the five highest-grossing movie stars not in a Star Wars or superhero movie…

Film’s landscape has changed dramatically over the years – as is to be expected. Gone is the age of the traditional American movie, the sweeping drama, the movie star led original tale that could drive audiences to cinemas just to get a glimpse of their face. We have since transitioned into the age of tent-poles; the franchise movie is now the dominant force at the box office, and leading the march are sub genres like the superhero movie, along with mega franchises like Star Wars. And all this got me thinking, just where are all the movie stars? Do they exist anymore? A train of thought that led to a little investigating into just who are the highest grossing movie stars in Us domestic history that haven’t appeared in a superhero or Star Wars movie. »

Spider-Man: Homecoming projected for $135 million domestic opening

13 May 2017 6:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re less than two months away from the return of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man as Marvel and Sony unleash their big screen reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming, and according to Box Office Pro, early projections are pointing to a $135 million domestic opening weekend for Tom Holland’s web-slinger.

Should Homecoming debut to $135 million, it would give the McU its sixth biggest opening weekend after The Avengers ($207.4 million), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191.3 million), Captain America: Civil War ($179.1 million), Iron Man 3 ($174.1 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($146.5 million). It would also be the second-biggest Spider-Man opening ever after 2007’s Spider-Man 3 ($151.1 million).

Homecoming certainly has plenty going for it; it’s Spidey’s first real introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe following his supporting role in Civil War, Robert Downey Jr. is on board as Tony Stark, and the trailers have been well received.

However, it should also be noted »

Read The Script For Joss Whedon’s Wonder Woman Movie That Never Came To Be

12 May 2017 5:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though he’s since been appointed at the helm of Warner’s Batgirl spinoff, two-time Avengers director Joss Whedon was once in the driving seat for a live-action Wonder Woman movie. That was back in 2005, right around the same time as Christopher Nolan’s groundbreaking Batman Begins.

Alas, Whedon’s pitch never came to fruition, and the director went on to wrangle Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on to the big screen in the most epic way imaginable – that by-now iconic 360º shot of Cap and Co. locking horns with the invading Chitauri is still fondly remembered to this day.

But just as Warner Bros. makes final preparations for Wonder Woman‘s arrival – June 2nd is the date your diaries – Indie Ground Films has unearthed Whedon’s rejected script for the Amazon Princess. Rather than electing Ares to be the primary antagonist, it seems the Firefly director was ready to pit Diana Prince against Strife, »

We need to talk about the disappointing Wonder Woman box office tracking

12 May 2017 5:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen on the box office tracking for Wonder Woman…

Last month it was reported that Wonder Woman, the latest entry in the struggling Dceu, was tracking around $83 million. While not a complete disaster, it really wasn’t a great number when compared to its contemporaries. However a new report yesterday stated it was more likely to be around $65-75 million domestically.

Now, as we’ve noted on this site many times, estimations and tracking are sometimes way off the mark. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was tracking top open to $160 million but actually earned $146 million. Logan was tracking $60 million, but actually brought home $88 million. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast was on track to earn $120 million, but it smashed expectations with $174 million. Kong: Skull Island was set to make around $48 million, but actually earned $61 million. The Fate of the Furious was said to make $400 million globally when it opened last month, »
