Green Lantern Corps movie

A year ago, we learned that Batman Begins and Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer was hired to write the script for DC and Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern Corps movie alongside writer Justin Rhodes. Not long after, there were whispers that Goyer might end up directing the movie as well, but that rumor remains unconfirmed and the movie is still currently without a director.

Since then, we haven’t heard any concrete updates about the project. But that’s changed today, since an outlet caught up with Goyer yesterday and got him to confirm that the movie is “still in the works.” But it’s what he said next that paints a more interesting picture.

teen titans go to the movies trailer

Finally, a Teen Titans movie. Except er, it’s Teen Titans Go! And there’s a 15-second fart joke that takes up one-third of this trailer. And they all have their own customized Wonder Woman costumes.

I guess that’s the price us long-suffering Teen Titans fans have to pay to see Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven, and Beast Boy in their original team incarnation on the big screen. How did such a good, character-centric animated series build a legacy that resulted in people seeing this team for the first time as these hyperactive caricatures? Anyways, here’s the trailer for the Teen Titans Go! To The Movies feature film.

Justice League extended cut

As you surely know by now, Justice League didn’t do so hot at the box office. In fact, its modest $227 million domestic haul was just outgrossed by Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle this weekend. That’s right, one of the biggest superhero tentpoles of 2017 was just beaten by a (hugely entertaining) rebootquel of a moderately-beloved children’s movie.

And Warner Bros. knows they have to do something to save the ailing DC Extended Universe. They’ve shaken up their executive structure and hired a new DC Films president. But one thing they haven’t done is give into the ludicrous demands of the fans demanding a “Zack Snyder cut” of the movie — a cut that probably doesn’t actually exist. But with the impending release of Justice League on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital, new information is surfacing on a possible extended cut of the comic book movie. Maybe (hopefully) that will finally satisfy Snyder fans.

Ridley Scott may have taken a hands-off approach to Denis Villeneuve‘s ambitious critical darling Blade Runner 2049, but it appears that he wants to tackle another sequel to his seminal sci-fi classic Blade Runner.

The 80-year-old director keeps piling up potential projects, with news that he’s in talks with Disney to adapt the Merlin Saga and now his somewhat nonchalant statement that he’s considering a return to the Blade Runner franchise. Now it’s just a question of whether Warner Bros. would want to invest in another sequel to the sci-fi series after Blade Runner 2049 disappointed at the box office.
