Hal Jordan shortlist

Green Lantern likely won’t appear until 2019’s Justice League: Part Two. We still don’t know which version of the character we’ll see first in the DC Cinematic Universe, but producer Charles Roven has said the character’s (or characters’) role in part two is tentative. We may not even see Hal Jordan or Jon Stewart until Green Lantern Corps in 2020.

We still have a while to go until Green Lantern Corps, but already a shortlist naming six actors Warner Bros. is considering for the role of Hal Jordan has hit the web. The list includes some of the usual suspects and, oddly, Ryan Reynolds, who already played Jordan in the mediocre 2011 film. Below, check out the Hal Jordan shortlist.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake

Over eight years ago, talk of a Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake began. Hot Tub Time Machine director and Grosse Point Blank co-writer Steve Pink was hired to write and direct the remake, based on the wonderful comedy starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, which was itself a remake of the 1964 film, Bedtime Story. Pink eventually departed from the project, which is up and running again with Rebel Wilson and (possibly) Anne Hathaway in the starring roles.

sterling k. brown

Sterling K. Brown is having a moment. He won a well-deserved Emmy for playing prosecutor Christopher Darden in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, a tricky role that required him to radiate intelligence and charisma while also portraying a man who makes all kinds of poor choices. He immediately followed that with a lead role on This is Us, which has become a big hit for NBC. And like any actor having a moment, he’s been sucked into the world of comic book movies with a role in the upcoming Black Panther.

And the hot streak continues with Shane Black’s The Predator.

Animated Spider-Man Movie

UPDATE: Sony has officially announced a release date for their animated Spider-Man movie, along with another director and confirmation that Miles Morales will be the main character. You can find the details below.

Even though Sony Pictures appears to have Spider-Man back on track thanks to their collaboration with Marvel Studios to bring the webslinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the studio is still working on a completely different version of the wallcrawler.

An animated Spider-Man movie was first announced at CinemaCon back in April of 2015 with The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller producing alongside Avi Arad and Amy Pascal. The movie was originally slated for a release in the summer of 2018, but has since been pushed back to Christmas. However, we still haven’t heard how this animated Spider-Man movie will be different from the new live-action Spider-Man franchise, other than breaking new visual ground.

That changes today if a new casting call is to be believed, as it indicates that we might finally see a version of Spider-Man that fans have been clamoring for since The Amazing Spider-Man was in development a few years ago. Read More »

Green Lantern Sterling K. Brown

Of all the films on the upcoming DCEU slate, Green Lantern Corps might be the most mysterious. Yes, it’s got a release date — and, as of last week, screenwriters — but not much more than that. We don’t know who’ll direct it, who’ll star, or what the story will be.

In the absence of any concrete information, then, let’s engage in the time-honored traditions of wishful thinking and wild speculation. First up, actor Sterling K. Brown has also noticed Green Lantern Corps has yet to cast any leads, and would like to throw his hat into the ring. And next, director Duncan Jones — who, to be very clear, is not officially associated with the film in any way that we know of — has some thoughts on how to make the story interesting.  Read More »

Deadpool 2 Cast

Just yesterday, we learned that Deadpool 2 would still very much be a solo adventure for the Merc with a Mouth. But co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick did promise that it would still be populated with “a lot of characters.” We know that a couple of those characters are supposed to be Marvel Comics favorites Cable and Domino, but there’s also room for some of the characters from the first movie to return. So which of Deadpool‘s supporting cast members will make a comeback in the sequel? Find out below. Read More »
