DC's stranglehold on the TV superhero game got even tighter with last week's news that a 'Titans' series may fight crime on TNT, but the comic company's latest adaptation effort doesn't belong to the cape persuasion. Neil Gaiman 'Sandman' comic spinoff 'Lucifer' may fall into its own series on FOX, as the network adds a put pilot order to its ranks.
Comic-Con 2014 is just around the corner, which means lots of big announcements are on the way. While Marvel has certainly been on top of their game as far as carefully planning the phases of their superhero properties, we've wondered exactly what DC and Warner Bros.' game plan was for the next few years, now that they've got 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' in motion. Now, new reports have emerged regarding WB's upcoming slate of comic book movies, including 'Justice League,' a 'Wonder Woman' solo movie, and a Green Lantern and Flash team-up.
In a move that surprised no one (or, let us rephrase, should have surprised no one), Warner Bros. formally announced that 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder will be helming the long-awaited 'Justice League' movie after he's finished with 'Batman vs. Superman.' With his Superman sequel set for release on May 6, 2016, the premiere date for this DC superhero team-up is projected for around 2018, and the studio has more it wants to accomplish before then.
Word broke last month that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who made his directorial debut with 'Don Jon,' will next tackle a big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's gothic comic book classic 'Sandman.' Since then, we haven't heard much, but now Gordon-Levitt has opened up a bit about his plans for the film in a new interview. So what can we expect from this highly-anticipated project? Something "spectacular," he promises.
