There's a reason why people have been pretty tight-lipped with 'Batman vs. Superman' details. It seems that everyone, even the extras, face a $5 million lawsuit if they divulge anything at all. But that hasn't stopped one member of the film's background talent, who went to local Detroit news station with some new story details, including the identity of Batman's sidekick, Robin.
Yesterday, Warner Bros. released its official upcoming release schedule, including -- surprise! -- a 'Wonder Woman' movie scheduled for 2017, putting them ahead of Marvel, who still haven't announced their own solo female superhero film. And while we know the origin of Wonder Woman in 'Batman v Superman' will be the less compelling New 52 version from the comics, there's still hope that WB can make a really interesting and fantastic 'Wonder Woman' film by doing the right thing: hiring women to make this movie.
The Warner Bros. announcement on Wednesday of ten upcoming movies based on DC Comics properties neatly fills in a calendar of dates that the studio previously provided -- and help flesh out an extraordinary timetable of DC and Marvel superhero movies over the next six years from Warner Bros, Marvel Studios, Fox, and Sony Columbia.
ComicsAlliance's own graphics maestro Dylan Todd put together a timeline that reveals what those six years look like, including 29 confirmed release dates between now and the end of 2020, with several dates and titles still to be announced. For anyone who remembers the days when just one Spider-Man movie seemed an impossible dream, it's an astonishing representation of how comic book superheroes now dominate popular entertainment.
Although the bulk of shooting on Zack Snyder's 'Batman vs. Superman' thus far has taken place in Detroit, Michigan, the production has also gotten to work in New Mexico where something big is going down. A large compound of buildings are currently being constructed in a desert environment and fan speculation about what could be going down here has already started to run wild.
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its second installment of the year with season premiere followup “Sara,” as the team grapples with Sara's death, and Roy is forced to reveal Thea's whereabouts, while in flashback Oliver acclimates to his new Hong Kong surroundings, and has a chance encounter with Tommy (Colin Donnell).
Ryan Gosling is taking lots of meetings this week, and in the war between Marvel and DC, a new battle has emerged: the battle over Ryan Gosling's soul. Gosling is being considered for not only the role of 'Doctor Strange,' but also for a part in DC's 'Suicide Squad' film, which, as it was announced earlier today, is being directed by David Ayer. And buried somewhere else in all this news: Gosling might also play Houdini.
For a long time, Marvel had their eye on Joaquin Phoenix to star in 'Doctor Strange.' In fact, he was far enough along in his negotiations that Marvel hoped to bring him out on stage at Comic-Con to introduce him to the crowd. Phoenix, in case you haven't noticed, is mercurial and negotiations stalled. And, then they stalled some more. And, then finally Marvel decided to move on completely. Now, here we are back at square one as Marvel has a completely new shortlist of actors to star in their next superhero film. We previously told you about Ewan McGregor, but who else does Marvel have their eye on?
Not to be outdone by the big 'Captain America 3'/Civil War announcement from earlier this week, Warner Bros. dropped some superhero news of their own. They've confirmed their 2017, 2018 and 2019 superhero movies as well as announced some new casting for members of the new Justice League.
Second episodes of television shows are hard. They might be the hardest one a show ever has to pull off, since it has to establish the template by which the show moves from pilot to actual series. Gone is the burden of having to set up a world, but present is the burden of having to build it out on a weekly basis. A show has to plan for the future but stay entertaining in the present. “Fastest Man Alive” represents 'The Flash' experiencing a few growing pains as it makes its shift into weekly entertainment, but it’s by no means a bad episode. The good far outweighs the bad, and much of the bad can be easily fixed over time.
