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:

Cast This: Superman

  • JoBlo
The DC Universe received a bit of a shake-up last week when THR reported that Warner Bros. would be parting ways with Henry Cavill after contract talks with the actor broke down. Henry Cavill has played Superman in Man Of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and Justice League, and Warner Bros. had been hoping that the actor would make a cameo appearance as Superman in Shazam!, but once the talks fell...

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

Zack Snyder Reveals Justice League Originally Included An Atom Cameo

Love him or loathe him, or even if you’re somewhat indifferent to his cinematic oeuvre, Zack Snyder is among the best in his class when it comes to visual filmmaking.

From Watchmen to 300, Man of Steel to Dawn of Justice, there’s no denying that Snyder’s cinematography is easy on the eyes, even if the copious amounts of CGI tend to be a little overwhelming.

Such was the case with Justice League, which ultimately disappointed on so many levels. Some of those faults can be traced back to Snyder, of course, but between Joss Whedon coming on board at the 11th hour and Warner Bros. slapping a two-hour mandate on its epic DC crossover, it’s likely that the Justice League theatrical cut is pretty different from the one Zack Snyder had envisioned.

5 Actors Who Could Replace Henry Cavill as Superman

5 Actors Who Could Replace Henry Cavill as Superman
Henry Cavill may have taken his last flight as the Man of Steel. Reports crashed the internet with news that Cavill would not appear as Superman in Warner Bros. upcoming Shazam!. Talks between Henry Cavill's representatives and the studio broke down. The rumor being that Warner Bros. wanted to take the DC Universe in a different direction. Shifting their focus to a Supergirl film adaptation and recasting the role of her cousin. Cavill then committed to filming The Witcher series for Netflix. Followed by a mysterious instagram post where the actor captions, "Today was exciting #Superman." While wearing a "Krypton Lifting Team" t-shirt no less.

It's no secret that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment want to emulate the success of their rivals at Marvel Studios. Henry Cavill's Superman films, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League all underperformed. If Ben Affleck is indeed also out as Batman,

Henry Cavill Confirms He's No Longer Playing Superman in the Strangest Way

Henry Cavill Confirms He's No Longer Playing Superman in the Strangest Way
Henry Cavill's days as the Man of Steel are officially over, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The news comes amid a few big shakeups in Warner Bros.'s DC cinematic universe, which recently saw the departure of Ben Affleck - who appeared as Batman in Batman v. Superman and Justice League - and a renewed focus on an upcoming Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story about the teen superheroine. That means, if the studio sticks to DC comics lore, Cavill wouldn't be able to appear in the film anyway, since Superman's age wouldn't line up.

The reason for the 35-year-old British star's exit is reportedly due to a breakdown of contract negotiations between Cavill's representatives and Warner Bros., who were trying to enlist him for a cameo in the upcoming DC superhero comedy Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi and is set to hit theaters in April.

Zack Snyder Explains The Purpose Behind Batman’s Goggles In Justice League

Basically every Batman movie has seen the Dark Knight don a new version of the Batsuit. After all, it works both in and out of the universe. On the one hand, it makes sense that Bruce Wayne would keep upgrading his crime-fighting gear, while on the other, Warner Bros. have to sell some new toys. And sure enough, for Justice League, the second proper appearance of Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader, he wore a completely new costume.

Dubbed the Nite Owl look, the most notable addition of Batman’s Justice League armor was a pair of goggles, which resembled those worn by Dan Dreiberg in DC’s Watchmen. Seeing as Zack Snyder directed both of those movies, the similarity probably wasn’t an accident. Though we haven’t heard from the man himself on the connection between the two vigilantes, Snyder did take to Vero recently to clear up what Batsy’s goggles actually do.

Justice League Stuntman Shows Off New Look At Batman’s Tactical Suit

DC movies can sure be messy creations, with divisive works like Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League aspiring to cram so many characters and plot points into a single story that’s it’s often easy to miss the attention to detail that goes into all this dimly lit action.

Just take the Caped Crusader’s most recent costume for example, which stuntman Richard Cetrone wore in last year’s Justice League. Earlier this week, he took to Instagram to show off the full body of the tactical suit which Ben Affleck donned in the fight against Steppenwolf, giving us a pretty good look at it. Overall, it’s not a bad design, and Cetrone wears it well, while exhibiting the appropriately brooding facial expression to match.

First Draft Of Suicide Squad 2 Script’s Complete, Will Deepen The Characters

Whether you asked for it or not, Suicide Squad 2 is on its way, and co-writer Todd Stashwick assures us that the first draft of the script is now completed.

For what it’s worth, the writer and actor seemed enthusiastic about what they’ve come up with so far, telling Discussing Film:

“We have finished our draft and I’m really proud of it.”

While the Gotham actor stressed that he “can’t say anything else,” Stashwick also added that his main intention for the Suicide Squad sequel is “to tell an exciting story, deepening these characters.”

While Stashwick may be happy with his work as it is, it wouldn’t be a surprise to find out that his script will be tinkered with considerably before the Gavin O’Connor-helmed movie sees the light of day. As with last year’s Justice League, the first Suicide Squad underwent extensive reshoots,

Emotional Fan Art Pays Tribute To Henry Cavill’s Superman

The announcement that Henry Cavill would be stepping down from the role of Superman was met with a wave of emotional reactions, not to mention plenty of speculation on who could or should be taking the actor’s place in the DC saga. Nonetheless, with no official confirmation on the news yet, there’s always the chance that we’re being a little premature in our responses.

This uncertainty is acknowledged in a quick caveat that fan and artist BossLogic included with their latest work. But otherwise, both the image and text serve as a heartfelt farewell to the Justice League star.

BossLogic’s tweet reads as follows:

“I started making a (Superman no more) tribute when I first heard the news thought I’d finish it. Seen the video, read the statement and still unsure what is going on with the future of #superman seems like they may be benching him for awhile.

Smallville’s Michael Rosenbaum Says He Wants His Lex Luthor Job Back

Smallville wasn’t to every DC fan’s tastes, but pretty much every Superman lover out there can agree that Michael Rosenbaum was superb as Lex Luthor. In fact, he’s probably the best screen version of the Man of Steel’s nemesis we’ve ever had, as Rosenbaum was able to get under the skin of the criminal mastermind and believably take him down the path towards darkness over the first seven seasons of the prequel show.

Naturally, fans have been wanting to see him play Luthor again ever since Smallville ended, most likely on Supergirl. Rosenbaum may have his sights set on reprising his villainous role on the big screen instead, though, as he recently made a joking (we think) comment on Twitter about replacing Jesse Eisenberg.

In response to those reports that Henry Cavill is out as Supes, Rosenbaum tweeted: “I wish Eisenberg was done at Warner Brothers.

With DC Universe, Warner Bros. Looks to Turn a Valuable Brand Into a Viable Platform

With DC Universe, Warner Bros. Looks to Turn a Valuable Brand Into a Viable Platform
“F—k Batman.”

When the trailer for “Titans,” the first original series for the new DC Universe streaming service, premiered in July, that line stood out. It was uttered by actor Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, who in DC Comics lore is not only the first Robin to Bruce Wayne’s Batman, but also leader of the (sometimes Teen) Titans, a group of young-adult superheroes. In their many iterations, the Titans have covered straightforward superheroics, soapy melodrama, and even slapstick comedy. The Warner Bros. Television-produced live-action “Titans,” however, is a darker, more f-bomb-friendly take than any before it.

“This platform allows us to reach creatively and do the kind of programming we’ve never done before,” says DC Entertainment chief creative officer Jim Lee.

That platform, DC Universe, officially launched Friday. The subscription app includes a digital comics reader with a sampling from DC’s nearly century-old library and a social-media platform.
