Justice League reshoots

The making of Warner Bros.’ long-brewing Justice League is as fraught with drama as almost anything you’ll see in a theater this year. Following financially successful but critically despised movies like Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, DC Films changed its tactics and wanted to lighten things up a little bit. Part of that decision involved hiring Joss Whedon to come in and rewrite sections of the film’s screenplay, and ultimately Whedon stepped into the director’s chair to direct reshoots when original director Zack Snyder stepped away due to a death in the family.

Those reshoots and their impact on the movie have become a central talking point for fans and we’ve spent a long time speculating about what the final film will look like. Some of us have seen it already, but now, just a few days from its official release, one of the movie’s producers has come forward and revealed the ratio of Whedon’s Justice League reshoots to the footage Snyder originally shot for the superhero sequel.

Rampage first look

Update: The first poster for Rampage has arrived and we’ve added it to the post below.

Looking at a new photo of Dwayne Johnson standing in the rubble of a destroyed city, you’d be forgiven for thinking he’s on the set of San Andreas 2, the planned sequel to his earthquake disaster movie from 2015. But these new images are actually our first look at Rampage, a movie adaptation of the 1986 video game which – perhaps not coincidentally – reunites Johnson with San Andreas director Brad Peyton. Dwayne Johnson vs. giant monsters? Yep, safe to say this one’s going to make some money.

Ben Affleck Batman

What is the deal with Ben Affleck‘s Batman? It seems every month there’s a conflicting story regarding the man fans call Batfleck – he’s either staying for more Bat-adventures or he’s getting ready to jump the DCEU ship. Now Affleck himself has offered an update on the part, and confirmed that his Bat-days are limited, and that he’s looking for a “cool way” to leave the DCEU. Is Ben Affleck done with Batman?

Fury Road Lawsuit

Oh, what a lovely day for a lawsuit. George Miller, who created a modern-day masterpiece with Mad Max: Fury Road, is not content to just sit back and make a Fury Road follow-up without getting his just rewards. The Aussie filmmaker wants the WB to pay-up on a bonus they originally agreed on. Warner Bros. doesn’t see it that way, and so both Miller and Warners will now hop into souped-up vehicles laden with spikes and race forward into the wasteland of due process. What will become of the potential Fury Road sequel now?

Wonder Woman 2 release date

Wonder Woman was exactly the booster shot the DCEU needed, so it only makes sense that Warner Bros. and DC want to get to Wonder Woman 2 ASAP. After previously committing to a December 2019 release date for the Amazon warrior’s return, Warners has now moved the Wonder Woman 2 release date up to November 2019. And it looks like star Gal Gadot is officially locked-in to return.

Justice League Featurette

We’re just a few days away from Justice League hitting theaters, bringing the DC Comics superhero team altogether on the big screen for the first time ever. We’ve seen plenty of footage in the trailers that have been released over the past year and a half, and now Warner Bros. Pictures is in the final stretch of their marketing push to show off even more from the blockbuster flick.

A new Justice League featurette goes behind the scenes of the movie showing off Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher having a good time between takes. Plus, there’s a new clip showing off more of the conversation that happens between Bruce Wayne and Arthur Curry when the billionaire vigilante goes searching for metahumans to help defend Earth against an impending threat.

Wonder Woman 2

One of the biggest hits of the year is Wonder Woman. The film is currently the second highest grossing movie of 2017, and it raked in $821.7 million worldwide. Not only did it make some serious bank, the critical acclaim for the film was through the roof. That means Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment were happy to greenlight a sequel. But if a new rumor is to be believed, unless the studio does some house-cleaning behind the scenes, the sequel could be a jeopardy.

A new report indicates Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot won’t sign on to reprise her role as Diana of Themyscira in Wonder Woman 2 if Brett Ratner remains on board the franchise as a producer. Ratner was recently accused of sexual harassment by several actresses, including Olivia Munn, Natasha Henstridge and most recently Ellen Page, and it sounds like Gal Gadot won’t stand for having someone like that involved with a franchise that is meant to be empowering to women all around the world.

Steven Soderbergh Fury Road

Steven Soderbergh has always been a filmmaker very open to praising fellow artists, and in a recent interview the Logan Lucky director sang the praises of George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road. In a bit of effusive praise for Miller and his directorial skills, Soderbergh commented on how incredibly well-staged the action set pieces in the recent Mad Max sequel were, and how they left him awestruck. Read the Steven Soderbergh Fury Road thoughts below.

Steven Spielberg Advice

Christopher Nolan‘s recent Dunkirk is not your typical war epic. It’s not so much obsessed with focusing on battles as it is avoiding them. Yet Nolan wasn’t above looking to past war films for inspiration, particularly one of the most famous war films ever made: Steven Spielberg‘s Saving Private Ryan. In a new interview, it’s revealed that Steven Spielberg gave advice to Christopher Nolan during the making of Dunkirk.
