batman flashpoint

Call it Justice League 1.5: Flashpoint will now boast more than half of the members of the Justice League, with Batman joining Wonder Woman and Cyborg in a feature appearance in the reworked solo Flash film.

With the Dark Knight’s inclusion in the adaptation of the massive crossover event that rebooted the DC Comics, it adds to chatter that Flashpoint could usher in a new era for the DC Extended Universe. That is, if Warner Bros. is still planning to move ahead with its potential universe-rebooting film after Justice League‘s disappointing opening weekend.

Disney and Lucasfilm already have your money next month. They know this. You know this. They can afford the luxury of keeping details about Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the dark. It feels like we’re going into Rian Johnson‘s new movie mostly blind, which is an odd feeling in 2017.

So when a new international TV spot shows up offering our first real look at Benicio del Toro‘s mysterious Star Wars character, we can’t help but take notice. Who is this guy? And why are the trailers hiding the fact that an Oscar-winning actor is among the new additions to the film’s cast?

Justice League reshoots

Justice League is now playing in theaters everywhere and if you went into the film hoping to see all of the flashy stuff on display in the multiple trailers, you might’ve been disappointed. There are numerous moments from the previews that aren’t in the final film, which, when combined with talk of the extensive reshoots that happened after Zack Snyder left and Joss Whedon took over, implies there’s a drastically version of the film floating around out there. In the wake of the film’s release, even more details about Justice League reshoots have surfaced.

Lizzy Caplan Gambit

20th Century Fox’s Gambit solo movie was originally scheduled to hit theaters over a year ago, but several starts and stops and a revolving door of directors kicked its release back to 2019. And since the movie has just found a director in Gore Verbinski, important casting decisions are happening: Lizzy Caplan, the star of movies like Cloverfield and TV shows like Masters of Sex, has been cast as the film’s female lead. But who is she playing?

X-Men Spiderman Movie Universe

A couple of weeks ago, we heard that The Walt Disney Company had conversations with 21st Century Fox about possibly buying some of their major assets, including the 20th Century Fox film studio and some Fox-owned TV networks like FX. Those talks ended up not going resulting in any deals, but now a new report says that Comcast and Sony have also had separate conversations about potentially acquiring 21st Century Fox’s assets, which would be depressing for a number of reasons.

But hey, while Hollywood as we know it enters into a possibly unrecoverable downward spiral, at least we might get to see some unexpected comic book movie crossovers! X-Men and Spider-Man in the same movie, anyone?

Justice League Zack Snyder cut

We’re now living in a post-Justice League world. After years in development and a troubled production that saw original director Zack Snyder step away due to a family tragedy and be replaced by Joss Whedon, the movie finally hit theaters this past Friday and pulled in $94 million at the box office. That’s a lot of money, but contextually, it’s a disappointment for WB executives; $94 million is the lowest opening weekend haul of any movie in the DC cinematic universe thus far.

Many fans aren’t thrilled with the final product, and now a petition is circling that is begging WB to release a Justice League Zack Snyder cut on home video. We’ll take a quick look at that below, and also examine why Whedon’s writing credit contradicts a recent report about the extent of his involvement.
