Vertigo movie slate

When Warner Bros. announced a ten-film slate of DC Comics films last week, taking the studio all the way to 2020, you might have noticed one big omission. There was no Sandman, which we know Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been developing over much of 2014. But worry not (or continue to worry, if you’re afraid of the film), as Sandman creator Neil Gaiman says things are still moving along, and that we can expect another announcement. In short, Sandman isn’t part of the DC movie slate, because it is part of the Vertigo movie slate.  Read More »

‘The Conjuring’ Sequel Pushed to 2016 [Updated]

Conjuring 2 delayed

New Line had planned a Conjuring sequel for October 2015, but that plan has changed. Just weeks after the Conjuring spin-off Annabelle opened in the US, New Line has pulled The Conjuring 2 off the 3015 schedule, pushing it into 2016. The studio will still use that date for horror, and will release a different, as-yet untitled horror movie on the old Conjuring 2 date. Could this have anything to do with the good reception for Annabelle, which technically exists in the same series, but was a lot cheaper to make?  Read More »

Jason Momoa

Everyone knew Jason Momoa was Aquaman. The trades reported it, Zack Snyder talked about the character, and Momoa teased it, but no one would confirm it officially until Warner Bros. made a move. That finally happened last week, when the full DC Comics schedule was revealed. Momoa will play Aquaman in two Justice League movies and in a solo movie due in 2018. He’s also likely to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Because the news is out there, Momoa can finally talk about the role, and he’s got some good things to say. At a recent convention, the Game of Thrones actor talked about respecting the secrecy of the project, the honor he feels in playing the role because of his Polynesian heritage and what he thinks the solo movie might be about. Read the new Jason Momoa Aquaman quotes below. Read More »

Batman v Superman robin

A news report out of Detroit has a few big bits of information about Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman, and the biggest report is that a character long-speculated about will finally appear in the film.

Those who’ve been following along with Batman v Superman rumors probably know where this is going, but we’ll keep the real info after the jump for those who want to avoid detailed spoilers.

Update: One part of this story has been confirmed, though we don’t have final confirmation on Robin’s appearance (or lack thereof) in the film.

In the Heart of the Sea

Everyone knows the story of Moby-Dick, but fewer may be aware it was inspired by real events. Ron Howard‘s latest film, In the Heart of the Sea, tells that true tale.

Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, and Cillian Murphy star as crew members aboard the Essex, a 19th century whaleship from Nantucket, Massachusetts. In 1820, the ship was struck by a 80-foot sperm whale. The vessel sank, leaving the crew struggling to survive in the Pacific Ocean. Hit the jump to see the first In the Heart of the Sea trailer.

Suicide Squad

The announcement that David Ayer‘s DC Comics Suicide Squad movie was sandwiched between Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman and Justice League kind of made it seem like an afterthought. However, the first round of casting rumors has begun to circulate and they suggest, even if these actors don’t take the rolls, Warner Bros. has high hopes for the supervillain team-up film.

The Hollywood Reporter says that not only is Ryan Gosling being courted for a role, Will Smith, Tom Hardy and Margot Robbie all have offers to appear in the movie. Plus, while we may not know who is up for what role, El Mayimbe on Twitter says the team members who are in the script are Amanda Waller, Deadshot, Harkness and Vixen.

And if that’s not enough, Gosling is also interested in possibly playing Doctor Strange. Read more about the Suicide Squad movie cast rumors below. Read More »
