Diane Nelson, Former DC President, Deletes Twitter After ‘Joker’ Praise Leads to Harassment From Dceu Fans

Former DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson has exited Twitter following online harassment from fans of the DC Extended Universe, Entertainment Weekly reports. Nelson, who ran DC Entertainment from 2009 to 2018, started receiving criticisms from Dceu supporters after sending out a positive reaction to Todd Phillips’ footage of Joaquin Phoenix in full clown makeup for “Joker.”

“Love It!” Nelson wrote on social media. “Great story, great actor, specific and strong vision from talented director. What DC should have been doing since Nolan. Even if die hard fans struggle with his vision. #goodmoviesaregoodmovies“

Dceu fans interpreted Nelson’s remark as a dig at Zack Snyder, the creative visionary behind the Dceu as director of “Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and “Justice League.” Snyder’s films received severe critical beatings in the press, and “Justice League” was a box office bomb as the lowest-grossing Dceu release to date.

James Wan Explains Why He Wanted Aquaman To Be An Isolated Story

James Wan was super excited to be involved in the DC Universe, but he made it clear that if the gig of directing Aquaman was going to involve him stepping in to be a big name with limited control of production WB had the wrong guy. Wan told Comicbook he wanted to be the person to flesh out Aquaman’s world, and luckily, he was given what he wanted:

"It was very important for me early on to be allowed to make my own film and to have my own voice be in there. After Furious Seven and Conjuring 2, I didn't want to be a director for hire. After Furious Seven, that's kind of who I was to some degree, but after that, I don't want to be that guy again. So, it was very important for me to be able to bring my own stamp, my own visual aesthetic,

‘Aquaman': 7 Things We Learned from Our Edit Bay Visit with James Wan

With Aquaman, James Wan gets to introduce superhero fans to a whole new world of fantasy and adventure -- and it's a world that's right here on Earth. The first solo film for Jason Momoa's Atlantean hero first introduced in Zack Snyder's Justice League will travel to Atlantis and back in a globe-trotting superhero movie that puts a priority on heart and humor, and building a colorful world of wonders (including some signature James Wan's creature creations.) With Aquaman arriving in theaters later this year, I recently joined a small group of journalists at Warner

Aquaman Footage Reveals Origin Story and Adventurous Tone

Mike Cecchini Sep 24, 2018

James Wan breaks down three key Aquaman movie scenes.

“What could be greater than a king? A hero.”

The first Aquaman trailer was unveiled in July, and warmly received by fans. And while the movie hasn’t had to operate under a Star Wars-esque veil of secrecy, Warner Bros. has still done a remarkable job keeping many details of the film under wraps. But lest you think they’re hiding anything, we have details on three key scenes from the film, which were screened for reporters by director James Wan. While much of the footage was still a work in progress, it drove home many of the key takeaways from that first trailer, from the high adventure tone to the film’s color pallette to its sense of humor.

Aquaman’s origin story wasn’t explored in Justice League. What we got was an indication that Arthur

How The CW’s Arrowverse has achieved what the Dceu never could

George Chrysostomou on The CW’s Arrowverse and the Dceu…

It’s no secret that The CW is continuously killing it in terms of faithful and fun adaptations of famous DC characters. Whilst the shows are not everyone’s cup of tea, for those who stick with them it is clear that a lot of effort has gone into building a comprehensive universe that feels both consistently fresh and appropriately fleshed out. The jewel in the crown for these four Arrowverse series – Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supegrirl – is the crossover episodes, which bring all of the TV series characters together in thrilling and suspenseful tales that are both adventurous and character driven. Some have even gone as far to claim that the last crossover episode, Crisis on Earth X, was the better version of the Justice League, relying on the writer’s saviour – the multiverse

Kevin Smith Says It’d Be A Mistake To Stop Making Superman Movies

For the first few years of the Dceu, Warner Bros. held up Superman as the star of the franchise. But after a string of disappointing movies – not to mention Henry Cavill’s reported departure from the role – it’s clear that a shakeup’s in order, and that could mean putting Clark Kent’s saga on ice for at least a few years.

If you ask writer, director, and podcaster Kevin Smith, however, Warner would do better to keep the Man of Steel alive. Speaking on the Fatman on Batman podcast, the one-time writer of the ill-fated Superman Lives explained why he thought that taking a break from Superman stories is not the way to go.

“That’s a mistake,” Smith said. “I think you need to keep your big guy vital. This is the very first superhero ever created, the ‘king of the superheroes’ if you will, the one

Zack Snyder reveals that Atom was cut from Justice League

While it seems likely at this point that we’ll never learn just what exactly Zack Snyder had in store for us with his version of Justice League, we do keep getting occasional nuggets of info regarding the filmmaker’s original plans for the superhero team-up, and now comes word of another DC hero who almost appeared in the film.

Recently, the above image from Snyder’s cut of Justice League surfaced, showing Silas Stone (Joe Morton) alongside another S.T.A.R. Labs scientist – only it turns out this isn’t any old scientist, as Snyder has revealed on Vero that it is actually Ryan Choi, a character better known to DC fans as Atom.

In the DC comic book universe, Ryan Choi is the third character to assume the identity of the superhero Atom, who much like Marvel’s Ant-Man, is able to shrink his body to subatomic levels.

Japanese Aquaman Trailer Goes All in on Epic Underwater War

Japanese Aquaman Trailer Goes All in on Epic Underwater War
Aquaman is now three months away from opening in theaters and Warner Bros. and DC Films are starting to ramp up the promotional campaign. Jason Momoa returns to his Arthur Curry role for the first standalone film for the aquatic superhero, who often ends up at the butt of the joke. Momoa and director James Wan are hoping to take Curry and bring a cool edge that has not been present in the comic books or previous animated shows. While it's too early to tell if they succeeded on their "make Aquaman cool mission," they certainly packed a lot of underwater action into the international trailer.

The first trailer for Aquaman was shown to an enthusiastic audience at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer was released online simultaneously and DC fans were generally pretty happy with what they saw. However, the lucky attendees were treated to some more footage,

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to score HBO’s Watchmen

HBO has announced that it has enlisted Oscar and Golden Globe-winning Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails to compose the score for Damon Lindelof’s upcoming TV adaptation of Watchmen.

Reznor and Ross began working together as composers on David Fincher’s The Social Network, winning the Oscar and Globe Globe Awards for their efforts. They have also scored Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, as well as the Gillian Flynn adaptation Gone Girl and feature documentary Before the Flood.

Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.

A Great Underwater Battle Ensues In New International Aquaman Trailer

If Arthur Curry spent much of Justice League battling Steppenwolf and those pesky Parademons on Earth’s surface, then Aquaman is all about plunging Jason Momoa’s titular DC hero beneath the waves, where he must prove his worth as the would-be king of Atlanta.

Doing so won’t be easy, of course, as his half-brother Orm (Aka the Ocean Master) is plotting war against the surface world – not that you can blame him, really, given how the human race has spent the past number of years dumping waste and other pollutants into the world’s oceans.

Armed with a full battalion of soldiers and armored sharks, it’s fair to say that Orm is a force to be reckoned with, and today’s newly-released international trailer brings us that little bit closer to the fraught relationship between Patrick Wilson’s warlord and his estranged sibling, Arthur Curry, who is

Birds of Prey Gets Tarantino-Inspired Working Title, Begins Shooting in Early 2019

Birds of Prey Gets Tarantino-Inspired Working Title, Begins Shooting in Early 2019
Birds of Prey gets a working title and a production start date. Warner Bros. and DC Films seem to be crawling from the Justice League wreckage to start fresh with Aquaman getting ready to hit theaters and Todd Phillips' Joker movie currently shooting in New York City. Now, Birds of Prey can finally be added to that list. The Margot Robbie-starring film is expected to begin production on January 14th, 2019 in Los Angeles. In addition, it is believed that a casting announcement will be made by the end of this month, but that has yet to be officially confirmed.

While the production start date for Birds of Prey is certainly great news for DC fans, the working title is more of a nod for fans of film in general. The working title is reportedly Fox Force Five, which should ring a bell for any fans of iconic Quentin Tarantino masterpiece Pulp Fiction.

Lionsgate Developing Horror-Thriller Movie ‘Cobweb’ With Roy Lee, Jon Berg (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Lionsgate has launched development of Chris Thomas Devlin’s horror-thriller “Cobweb” with Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee and Jon Berg in advanced negotiations to produce.

The studio bought Devlin’s spec script in which a boy’s abusive parents have always told him the voices he hears in the walls of his house are only in his head. But when he discovers that they’re real, he conspires to let them out.

Andrew Childs is the executive producer. Jim Miller and Meredith Wieck are overseeing the project for Lionsgate.

Lee founded Vertigo in 2002 with Doug Davison. His credits include “The Ring,” “The Grudge,” “It,” the Lego movies, and “The Departed.”

Aquaman's Hot and All, but Do You Actually Know What His Powers Are?

Aquaman's Hot and All, but Do You Actually Know What His Powers Are?
With the release of Aquaman inching closer with every passing day, people are starting to wonder whether the superhero's powers stack up to the likes of Wonder Woman and Superman. Aquaman may have been mocked for decades for simply "talking to fish," but Arthur Curry (Aquaman's real name) is nothing to laugh about. Here's a quick guide to what his powers actually are.

Superhuman Strength and Durability

Jason Momoa, the actor who plays Aquaman, had a pretty serious training regimen, with damn good reason. Swimming is one of the best exercises to tone your body, and that's kind of Aquaman's gig. Aquaman is half-Atlantean, a group of sea people who reside in, you guessed it, Atlantis. They are all stronger than the average human, but Aquaman is several steps above even them.

In the trailer, Aquaman breaks a metal sword with his hand and lifts a submarine. He also jumps

First Aquaman TV Spot Sees Orm Deliver A Threat

Arthur Curry is homeward bound in the epic first TV spot for Warner’s standalone Aquaman movie.

Pegged to arrive on December 21st, which is fast becoming one of 2018’s busiest corridors thanks to Bumblebee, Alita: Battle Angel and the wondrous, long-in-development sequel Mary Poppins Returns, the James Wan-directed spinoff is all about Arthur Curry plunging beneath the waves to explore Atlantis and the power struggle that lies within.

Orm the Ocean Master is plotting war against the surface world, on the belief that those pesky humans are polluting the seven seas and generally causing havoc to ocean wildlife. He’s not wrong, mind you, but his thirst for vengeance places Jason Momoa’s six-foot powerhouse on red alert, as can be seen in today’s incredible first TV spot for the December blockbuster.

Rocksteady Hiring Spree Reignites Rumors Of New Superman Game

A Superman game from the creative minds behind Batman: Arkham Asylum.

It’s a match made in video game heaven, if we’re being frank, though if Rocksteady Studios is working on a new DC title, it clearly wasn’t ready in time for E3 2018.

Leading up to the industry’s annual video game extravaganza, speculation was rife that Rocksteady was on the verge of unveiling its Man of Steel to the world, only for E3 2018 (and San Diego Comic-Con) to roll around without so much as a peep.

But if a new hiring spree is any indication (h/t Heroic Hollywood), then it would seem the video game developer is very much ramping up production on its mystery Superman title – assuming it is a Superman title at all. An example from the studio’s job section puts out the call for a seasoned Character Artist to join the team:

Zack Snyder Confirmed That The Atom Was Cut From Justice League

It looks like Zack Snyder was laying the groundwork for another DC superhero in Justice League. According to CinemaBlend, Snyder was going to introduce the character Ryan Choi in the film. Choi is The Atom.

There was one scene where Choi’s name appeared on a computer monitor in Justice League, it was also pointed out that there was a promotional image released that showed Silas Stone, the father of Cyborg, standing next to an unnamed scientist. Synder confirmed on Vero that the scientist in the image was Choi, who was played by Orion Lee (Star Wars: The Last Jed).

This scene was ultimately one of many cut during the post-production/reshoots phase once Joss Whedon came aboard to finish the movie. It’s still unclear whether or not Ryan would have actually been referred to by name. But Snyder did intend for him to exist in the DC cinematic universe.

10 Wonder Woman 1984 Rumors We Hope Are True (And 10 We Hope Aren’t)

While there are several female superheroes out there, Wonder Woman is no doubt one of the most iconic. Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, was created by writer William Moulton Marston and artist Harry G. Peter back in 1941.

She first appeared in All Star Comics #8 and her first feature appearance was in Sensation Comics #1. Wonder Woman has been included in numerous TV shows and movies over the years due to her inclusion in the superhero team Justice League.

The character has starred in hundreds of comics since her conception, but one of her only live-action TV shows took place in the ‘70s and starred Lynda Carter. The show ran for three seasons before ending in 1979.

Around 30 years later, Warner Bros. attempted to make another TV show starring Adrianne Palicki but NBC ended up passing on the show.

Currently, Gal Gadot is playing the character on the big screen for the DC Extended Universe.

18 Superhero Solo Movies Currently In Development (And 12 Possibilities)

Isn't it amazing that we're finally living in a time when we get to see our favorite superheroes interacting with each other on the big screen? Even though not every team-up is a huge success, it's still an amazing step forward from what fans have had in the past.

Remember when Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man all had their own movie series to worry about and fans could only dream they would one day meet? Thankfully, those days are over.

However, when comparing the superhero ensemble films from today with the solo outings from the past, fans are sometimes shocked to see just how well the older, single hero-driven films hold up - and this doesn't just apply for 20th century classics like Superman: The Movie and Batman, but also recent films, including Iron Man, Deadpool, and Black Panther.

Sure, other heroes may make appearances and the main hero sometimes has
