Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to Play ‘F—ing Hilarious Weirdo’ ‘Doc Savage’ in Shane Black Adaptation

5 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Get ready to see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson karate chop his adversaries while out-smarting: the “Fast & Furious” actor has signed on to star in “Doc Savage,” Johnson said in an Instagram post on Monday. Written and directed by Shane Black (“The Nice Guys”), the film is in development at Sony Pictures. Johnson called Doc Savage “the world’s first superhero,” noting that popular pulp magazine character from the 1930s and 40s predates Superman. In fact, the comic book hero was often called “a superman,” which eventually inspired the creation of the Man of Steel. Also Read: Johnny Depp Is Being Blackmailed by Amber. »

Examining Hollywood Remakes: Man of Steel

18 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Since it’s Memorial Day, this seems like a good time to dissect the remake of the film about a (super) man who represents “truth, justice and the American way.” This week, Cinelinx looks at Man of Steel.

 He may not be quite as popular as Batman anymore, but there is no comic book superhero is who is more iconic and influential than Superman. He is one of the most well-known fictional characters world-wide (along with Sherlock Holmes, Tarzan and Dracula). Just as the introduction of the man of steel in 1938 began the super hero genre in comics, the debut of Superman: The Movie (1978) in theaters initiated the cinematic super hero genre.  It spawned 4 sequels (counting Superman Returns) and a spin-off (Supergirl). Years later, after numerous Marvel films had pulled in big wads of box office cash, Warner Brothers joined forced with Legendary Pictures to re-film the story of the last son of Krypton. »

Jeremy Irons says Batman v Superman was “overstuffed” and “very muddled”

29 May 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s probably pretty safe to say that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wasn’t the rip-roaring success that Warner Bros. wanted to kickstart its DC Extended Universe. The film took a bashing from critics, as well as a large section of fans, and it seems that Alfred Pennyworth actor Jeremy Irons shares many of the same complaints.

“Deservedly so,” said Irons, when talking to The Daily Mail about the film’s negative reviews. “I mean it took $800 million, so the kicking didn’t matter but it was sort of overstuffed. It was very muddled. I think the next one will be simpler. The script is certainly a lot smaller, it’s more linear.”

It’s likely that Irons is referring to Justice League when he mentions “the next one”, given that he’s returning as Alfred, although he could also be referring to the solo Batman movie, where »

Green Arrow Movie Won't Happen Says Stephen Amell

28 May 2016 12:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite The Flash TV show flourishing on The CW, DC and Warner Bros. are planning a movie that uses the same Barry Allen character only with a completely different cast. This big screen outing will also be darker in tone, tying in with Justice League and the rest of the Dceu. The same can't be said of The CW's other popular superhero series Arrow. Despite that character being a massive fan-favorite, DC and Warner Bros. aren't planning to bring Oliver Queen to the local theater any time soon. In fact, it may never happen.

Arrow just wrapped up Season 4, and has already been renewed for Season 5. Despite its popularity, it does not tie into Batman V Superman and the Justice League spinoffs at all, which hasn't sat well with some fans. While Grant Gustin's Barry Allen is getting a multiplex doppelganger in Ezra Miller, Stephen Amell will be the »

Comics: Forget Nazi Captain America, You Won't Believe What Happened To Superman This Week

26 May 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Captain America is secretly a Hydra villain and Dr. Manhattan is possibly the creator of the DC Universe, so it's no wonder that the death of Superman has flown under the radar. His demise has been on the cards for a while, but after defeating a deranged man imbued with his solar flare energy, a year of being exposed to the fire pits of Apokolips and attempting to regain his stolen powers by bathing himelf in Kryptonite finally took its toll on the Man of Steel and he perished in the arms of Wonder Woman as his body cosumed itself from within. The following took place in Superman #52: Chances are that the New 52 Superman isn't even the real Man of Steel (you can find more on that theory by clicking here), but the original DC Universe's Superman is going to take over the role regardless. He'll be joined by »

DC Rebirth: Has The Cast Of Watchmen Already Started Appearing In The DC Universe?

26 May 2016 7:44 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

DC Rebirth #1 featured the shocking reveal that Watchmen's Dr. Manhattan is responsible for stealing a decade's worth of history from the DC Universe and possibly creating that world in the first place. However, will some familiar faces from the classic Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons series join him? While it's possible that these are the original versions of the rest of the team (particularly in the case of Ozymandias), chances are that Dr. Manhattan could have inadvertently recreated his old friends in very different roles, and based on some of the evidence and theories you'll find below, it seems as if writer Geoff Johns may have been sewing the seeds for a reveal like that for quite some time now... Ozymandias - This mysterious hooded character first appeared in Geoff Johns' short-lived Superman run and could be seen monitoring the Man of Steel and claiming to have played »

Batman v Superman Producer Dropped from Several DC Movies

25 May 2016 1:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Warner Bros. announced that DC's Geoff Johns and Warner Bros.' Jon Berg have been brought on to run the studio's new superhero division, dubbed DC Films. The move was said to be part of a larger re-structuring throughout the studio, with different executives being put in charge of specific genres and franchises the studio controls. This re-organization was said to be part of the fallout from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which has made $327.8 million domestically and $870.9 million at the worldwide box office, but it was trashed by many fans and critics alike. Today we have news that producer Charles Roven is shifting roles at the studio, as the studio continues to restructure.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Charles Roven, who has been producing superhero movies at Warner Bros.' since 2005's Batman Begins, is transitioning to an executive producer, who won't be involved in the »

Molly Jackson: Smells like Un-Confidence

25 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

When they announced the new DC Comics logo not too long ago, I wasn’t a fan. However, I was content to sit back and let others write about it. Our own fearless editor Mike Gold wrote a fantastic piece about the new logo. You should read it. And then it was time to move on, to reading Rebirth, the new DC reboot which will be available by the time you are reading this. (Yes, your reading list grew quite a bit in a few minutes.)

I was all ready to move on, until Jim Lee decided he needed to explain the logo. Not the reason for the change, just explain the actual logo to fans.

On Instagram, Jim Lee revealed that “The nooks and angles are meant to evoke the Superman ‘S’, the Wonder Woman ‘Ww’ emblem and the Bat logo.”

The problem with Lee’s response is that »

Producer Charles Roven is to slightly change roles, as Warner Bros continues its post-Batman V Superman alterations...

Following the response to Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Warner Bros has been making behind the scenes changes to the team overseeing the DC movie universe, as it looks to do some 'course correction' work. We suspect you already know that the reaction to Zack Snyder's movie wasn't as positive as Warner Bros was hoping (and the box office fell a bit short too)Already, we've seen Geoff Johns and Jon Berg put in place to oversee the DC movie universe, and Seth Grahame-Smith is no longer directing The Flash movie.

Now we learn of a change in role for producer Charles Roven, who has been involved in DC movies since 2005's Batman Begins. He's produced Man Of Steel through to next year's Wonder Woman, but after those, »

More Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Fallout As Future DC Films Lose Producer Charles Roven

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Gallery 1 of 36   

Click to skip

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was a very divisive movie, and regardless of whether you loved or hated it, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that Warner Bros. must have been massively disappointed by both the critical and commercial response (an adaptation pitting the Dark Knight against the Man of Steel failing to reach $1 billion is downright embarrassing).

Now, the fallout from the reception to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice continues, as a new report reveals that producer Charles Roven – who has been working on DC Comics adaptations since Batman Begins in 2005 – will no longer serve in that capacity on movies like Aquaman and The Flash. Studio sources claim it’s a time issue because he can’t be everywhere at once, but common sense says that Warner Bros. aren’t too happy with the guy »

‘Batman v Superman’ Aftermath: Producer Charles Roven’s Role May Be Reduced in Future Movies

24 May 2016 4:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has been moving to change the role of Charles Roven after the mild disappointment of “Batman v Superman,” with the veteran producer becoming an executive producer on several upcoming DC superhero movies rather than day-to-day manager and producer.

Roven and Deborah Snyder are the producers on “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which delivered somewhat disappointing results with $870 million in worldwide box office after two months in theaters.

Roven has worked on all DC Comics movies since 2005’s “Batman Begins,” including “Suicide Squad” and “Wonder Woman.” He could continue to be a producer on some sequels to those movies, though no final decision has been made.

“Roven is a key member of not only the DC slate but of the Warner Bros. family,” a studio spokesman said.

Roven has a producer credit on “The Dark Knight” trilogy, directed by Christopher Nolan, on 2013’s “Man of Steel,” “Suicide Squad »

A new calendar, featuring the characters from David Ayer's DC villain team-up flick Suicide Squad, is on the way. A preview for said calendar brings with it some new images. This is where your eyeballs come into play. You may now use them to scope the images, which I've amassed for your viewing pleasure below.

It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do.

While people may obsess over the long-running feuds between Batman and Superman, or Captain America and Iron Man, the real battle is between the studios that oversee those names: DC and Marvel.

With the two companies releasing their tentpole blockbusters within a month of each other, the behind-the-scenes rivalry transitioned into the multiplex with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War – and thanks to a very observant listener to the Flickering Myth Podcast, we might have uncovered a secret joke from Marvel at DC’s expense.

This is an extract from the mailbag section of Flickering Myth Podcast #26 (18th May, 2016). Kudos to listener Tim Walden for bringing it up.

Unused Posters For Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Feature The Man Of Steel And Dark Knight

See Full Gallery Here

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice divided fans and critics alike when it was released back in March, and even a couple a months later, the debate about Zack Snyder’s interpretation of these iconic superheroes rages on. That’s sure to continue well into the summer with the release of an extended version of the movie on Blu-ray right around the corner, too.

However, regardless of the faults the movie may have had, there’s no denying that the battle between the Man of Steel and Dark Knight was quite a spectacle. Thanks to costume designer Michael Wilkinson, the heroes also looked great during that fight, and that’s something which is emphasized by the two posters in the gallery above which have only just now surfaced. These weren’t used to promote Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice for some odd reason, but it »

Can Geoff Johns Save the Dceu as the Guiding Force Behind the DC Film Division?

20 May 2016 6:49 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ever since the news came out yesterday that Geoff Johns will join with Jon Berg as the joint-bosses of the WB’s new DC Film Division, the hopes of many fans have been raised. With a new vision now overseeing the Dceu, will it climb out of its slump and start delivering films that live up to the potential of the characters?

 Has Warner Bros/DC found their own Kevin Feige? With DC lagging behind Marvel's movie franchises, many fixes have been suggested for the struggling Dceu. One of them is that the Dceu needs a single, focused vision to oversee its course, the way Marvel has Kevin Feige as the lord-and-master of the entire McU. For a time, it seemed like WB/DC had settled on Zack Snyder as their creative mastermind, despite the underwhelming results he’s delivered to them with Watchmen, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. »

Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Ruin: Column #3

20 May 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm. This entry will look at Batman Begins, Superman Returns, Green Lantern, and more. We'll explore all of the interesting parallels and forks in the road that brought us to where the Dceu is today. 

Last week, we left off in 2004. Warner Bros. was preparing to relaunch its two DC Comics icons Superman and Batman, after flirting with jumping straight to a Batman Versus Superman movie. They backpedalled on that idea and, instead, poured all of their resources into re-establishing the characters as solo entities first, with the hope that a team-up or clash would eventually be in the cards.

Batman Begins

The first of these new films would be Batman Begins. Christopher Nolan, fresh off of critical successes with a few smaller films, »

How do you solve a problem like Zack Snyder?

20 May 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s a question that divides many. Some don’t even believe it needs answering, particularly those who defended Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice against the legions of critics and fans who heaped scorn on it. Warner Bros themselves didn’t think it was a question at all, given how shocked the studio were that people *gasp* didn’t lap up Zack Snyder’s confrontation between the world’s two most famous and beloved superheroes. Batman v Superman infamously has been described, in terms of box office, as underwhelming at best and a flop at worst. The latter is somewhat hysterical – Snyder’s picture has still made almost $900 million worldwide. Not so long ago that would have made it a record breaking, monster hit.

Now we live in the post – Fast & Furious 7 world where every major franchise film with the budget BvS had is expected to clear a cool billion. »
