Nightwing movie

Dick Grayson will be following his famous mentor right into the DC Extended Universe. Warner Bros. is plotting a Nightwing movie, with Chris McKay in talks to direct. McKay actually has some very recent experience with the character: he last helmed The Lego Batman Movie, which prominently featured Dick Grayson (voiced by Michael Cera) as Batman’s overeager sidekick.  Read More »

Ben Affleck Batman

UPDATE 2/23/17: It looks like Matt Reeves will be directing The Batman after all. Warner Bros. officially announced the hire today, with president and chief content officer Toby Emmerich saying they were “thrilled” with the decision. The press release (which you can read here) oddly does not mention Ben Affleck, even though he officially remains on board to produce and star, but Erik Davis has confirmation from the studio that Affleck is still set to play Batman.

Our original story from 2/10/17 (with our update from 2/17/17) follows.

The LEGO Batman Movie End Credits

The LEGO Batman Movie is in theaters right now, and if you haven’t taken the time to experience the exquisite joy that comes from watching this great piece of Dark Knight cinema, you should fix that immediately. As our own Jacob Hall pointed out, the movie is basically a road map for being a better fan, not just of Batman, but of anything. Furthermore, it’s a movie that has a lot of fun, including plenty of references and jokes made at the expense of the rest of the Batman movies and TV shows.

Along with referencing all the Batman that came before it, The LEGO Batman Movie also lets Batman do something that he’s never really done on the big screen before. In the end credits sequence of the movie, LEGO Batman and his crew of new friends and familiar villains participate in what is basically a big poppy music video, complete with Will Arnett delivering a Batman rap. Warner Bros. has officially released the LEGO Batman Movie end credits scene online for you and your kids to watch over and over again until you get sick of that song. Read More »

Kong Skull Island Clips

The onslaught of Kong: Skull Island marketing is underway as Warner Bros. and Legendary throw everything they can at audiences to convince them to see this latest iteration of the classic movie monster. This new King Kong comes with quite an epic promise of having him meet up with Godzilla sometime down the road (and a post-credits scene after Kong: Skull Island may hint at what’s to come in that regard), but the question is whether Kong stands strongly on his own.

A new batch of Kong Skull Island clips have surfaced online over the past few days, giving us more insight into the human characters who encounter Kong and the rest of the mythical monsters on Skull Island. In addition, we get to see some pretty incredible shots of Kong, showing us that the visuals in this movie will be quite stunning. And if that’s not enough, then an IMAX featurette should help pique your interest.

King Arthur Legend of the Sword trailer

If you keep forgetting that King Arthur: Legend of the Sword hasn’t actually come out yet, you’re not alone. Indeed, if you keep forgetting it exists at all, you’re probably not alone there either. After all, it’s been nearly two years since Guy Ritchie entered production on his medieval fantasy epic, which was originally supposed to open in summer 2016. Even Warner Bros. barely seems to be paying this film any mind — they haven’t released a new trailer for its would-be franchise-starter since Comic-Con.

But with about three months to go until release, the studio is finally getting around to marketing it for real. Today, we’ve got the new King Arthur: Legend of the Sword trailer, starring Charlie Hunnam as the legendary leader and the Young Pope Jude Law as the villainous Vortigern. Eric BanaAstrid Bergès-FrisbeyDjimon HounsouAidan Gillen, and Eric Bana also star.  Read More »

Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Justice League

David Thewlis was officially announced as part of the Wonder Woman cast back in November, but since then we’ve heard barely a peep about what he’ll actually be doing in the movie. He hasn’t even appeared in any of the promotional material yet — watching the trailers and TV spots, you’d probably have no idea he was in the movie at all. But today, we’ve finally got a bit more insight into his role in the film. It turns out the former Order of the Phoenix hero has gone full villain.  Read More »

Shazam

DC’s Shazam has been in development for several years now, but it hasn’t shown any serious forward momentum since it cast Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam back in 2014. With that 2019 release date slowly creeping up, though, Warner Bros. is finally ready to take its next big leap forward. The studio has reportedly tapped director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) to direct.

The House Trailer - Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler

After Saturday Night Live alums Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler made a mockery of the world of figure skating in Blades of Glory, they’re teaming up to create an illegal underground casino in the heart of suburbia

The House basically looks like Casino by way of the writers of Neighbors (Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien). Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler are desperate to get enough money in order to send their daughter to college. Jason Mantzoukas serves as the catalyst for this totally outlandish and unrealistic idea, and he looks like he’s going to be the MVP in this entire endeavor.

Like so many other big stars before him, Mel Gibson is considering going the superhero movie route. But not as an actor — as a director. Warner Bros. reportedly wants Gibson to helm the sequel to Suicide Squad, which, despite the negative reviews from critics and the polarized reactions from fans, earned a healthy chunk of change at the box office last summer.
