Zack Snyder DC Films

While Christopher Nolan kept DC Comics movies in the public eye with his Dark Knight trilogy starting in the mid-2000s, Nolan’s insistence that his movies exist in their own cinematic realm resulted in the higher-ups at Warner Bros. and DC looking for a new creative partner who could kickstart a cinematic universe to rival what was happening at Marvel Studios. They chose Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), who directed Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and (most of) Justice League, but a new report claims that Snyder’s influence over the DCEU will be significantly smaller moving forward. And if that weren’t enough, Suicide Squad director David Ayer might be leaving the DCEU entirely.

James Bond 25

Update: The New York Times is reporting that Daniel Craig will return as James Bond in the 25th 007 adventure due out on 2019. This is not an official announcement (they cite several anonymous sources), but it feels right. After all, there’s no way EON doesn’t want to give Craig’s version of the character a grand finale following the disappointing Spectre.

Our original story follows below.

cloverfield 3 release date

The third Cloverfield film, tentatively titled 2017 Cloverfield Movie, may have to change its working title. The release date for the sequel to 2008’s Cloverfield and 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane has been pushed back to 2018.

This makes it the second delay for the sci-fi movie originally titled The God Particle. The film is the third set in the Cloverfield universe, which has acted as a sort of connective tissue between original genre films that have been picked up by Paramount and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions.

Y The Last Man TV Show

An adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra‘s sixty-issue comic book series Y: The Last Man has been in the works for years –  first as a movie and then, thankfully, as a TV show, which is a much better fit for the sprawling tale.

But the show has been in the works at FX for a long time now, so what’s up with the delay? According to writer/showrunner Michael Green, you can blame the 2016 presidential election for the long wait.

shazam will be the next dc film

Update: DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns says Dwayne Johnson will not appear in the Shazam! movie. “We haven’t announced any casting yet,” Johns told Yahoo Movies. “But Dwayne isn’t going to be in this movie. He’s still doing Black Adam, but he won’t be in Shazam!” Our original article follows.

The future of the DC Extended Universe remained uncertain after Aquaman, the last DC Comics film with an official release date. But spurred on by the success of Wonder Woman, Warner Bros. had scheduled two more DC Films for 2020, mysteriously leaving all of 2019 blank. That is, until now.

The next DCEU film to hit theaters after Justice League this November and Aquaman in 2018 will be Shazam!, aiming for a 2019 release date. And while it doesn’t yet have a star to play the boy who magically transforms into a powerful and wise superhero, it does now have a director.

Christopher Nolan Netflix

There are a couple of things about Christopher Nolan, the man, that we know with complete certainty that he loves: wearing suits, and the idea of shooting movies on celluloid. After all, he’s part of the group of directors who essentially strong-armed the studios into continuing to purchase actual film so these people can continue using it for their productions. But here’s something the filmmaker doesn’t like: the way Netflix handles their original films.

In a new interview, the director candidly speaks about why he wouldn’t work with Netflix and dings their “mindless policy” of not supporting theatrical distribution. Read the Christopher Nolan Netflix comments below.

Mariah Carey TV Show

If you listened to the radio in the 1990s, you’ll probably remember how the music of Mariah Carey was totally inescapable. The pop diva experienced a staggering rise to fame and went on to become the biggest selling female recording artist in history, and after appearing on her own reality TV show on E! last year (entitled Mariah’s World), she’s now one step closer to being immortalized on the small screen in a different way: Starz is currently developing a new drama series based on Carey’s true life success story.
