Justice League - Flashpoint Movie

Update: Buried in a Deadline article about actress Gal Gadot being cast in a film called Deeper, the outlet says Gadot will reprise her role as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Wonder Woman 2, “the Justice League films and the spinoff for The Flash.” Our original article from August 6, 2017 follows.

During the Warner Bros. Pictures panel at San Diego Comic-Con, a surprising reveal came when referencing the first solo feature film for The Flash in the DC Extended Universe. The title of the movie, scheduled for release in 2020, was named as Flashpoint in a flash series of moving title cards that unfurled before the DC Comics part of the Warner Bros. panel began.

The reveal of Flashpoint as a title in development was a huge deal, mostly because that story arc has a massive impact on the DC Comics universe. The storyline imagines a DC Comics universe where Barry Allen (who will be played by Ezra Miller) didn’t get his speedster powers and never became The Flash, which also ends up effecting the rest of the members of Justice League, and if a new rumor is to be believed, we’ll get to see how that impacts at least one of those superheroes in the Flashpoint movie.

Superman The Movie Extended

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a three-hour extended cut of Richard Donner‘s 1978 classic Superman: The Movie! But what’s it doing up there? Oh, I see now, it’s preparing for its long-awaited home video release later this year. Naturally.

Warner Bros.’ Archive Collection has finally decided to give Superman fans the chance to own this rare, newly-remastered extended edition for themselves, and considering how Henry Cavill’s modern cinematic interpretation of the Man of Steel isn’t exactly cheery, it seems like a great time to bring Christopher Reeves‘ smiling, unabashedly positive take on the superhero back into our lives.

matthew vaughn young wolverine

Matthew Vaughn may already be eyeing a Kingsman trilogy, but back in 2011, he almost helmed an X-Men period-piece trilogy.

Or something of the sort. Vaughn launched the floundering X-Men franchise back into relevancy with, ironically, a flash to the past with 2011’s refreshing and bright X-Men: First Class. The superhero movie was set in the 1960s and was anticipated to be the first of several period-set X-Men movies, with a possible sequel centering around a young Wolverine in the ’70s. But the Kingsman came calling and Bryan Singer returned instead to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past. But that won’t stop Vaughn from being nostalgic for the past.

captain marvel in avengers 4

Who knows what the future holds? Marvel, apparently, because they’re scheduling films until the end of time, and currently in the midst of shooting them as well. Avengers: Infinity War isn’t even out yet, but production is already underway on the next Avengers film, which means eagle-eyed set spies are already picking out actors left and right as if they were deconstructing the Zapruder film. This scrutiny has apparently revealed none other than Captain Marvel will appear in Avengers 4. And rumors abound that another Marvel character, previously thought dead, might make an appearance as well. Let’s speculate wildly, shall we?

the punisher trailer

Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle was the highlight of the uneven Daredevil season 2. Marvel’s unhinged vigilante can be a tough nut to crack (and incredibly boring when cracked incorrectly), but this take on the character, deranged and broken and terrifying, felt like a home run. At least it felt like a home run during his limited screen time in a show about another Marvel hero. Now, we’ll have to see if he can hold up in an entire series built around him.

The first full The Punisher trailer has arrived online, offering an extended look at the latest Marvel series hitting Netflix this year.

Wonder Woman Honest Trailer

Even though Wonder Woman hit Blu-ray this week, the movie only just dropped out of the top 15 movies at the box office this past weekend. So far, Patty Jenkins‘ origin story for the DC Comics superhero has raked in $818 million worldwide, proving that there can be good movies in the DC Extended Universe, and that audiences want quality female-led superhero movies.

If you loved Wonder Woman, don’t worry, the folks at Honest Trailers aren’t here to rain on your parade. But they do have to point out that Wonder Woman isn’t without some flaws, despite the fact it’s a powerful, inspiring superhero tale that succeeds where all the other DCEU movies fall short. Watch the Wonder Woman Honest Trailer below. Read More »

Watchmen TV show

Earlier this year, news broke that Lost and The Leftovers co-creator Damon Lindelof was in talks with HBO to adapt Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal superhero graphic novel Watchmen into a TV series. About a month later, Lindelof denied having met with HBO about the project…but now, thanks to an Instagram post from the man himself, we know that he’s officially begun work on the Watchmen TV show.

wonder woman blu-ray

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

Remember physical media? It still exists! I swear! And while streaming is great, there’s something to be said for a Blu-ray release, especially considering not everything is available via streaming. So we’re going to dust off our physical media release column and take it around the track. There’s still life in this one yet. Join me, won’t you?

This week on Blu-ray we have the best film in the DCEU, a charming rom-com, a Steven Spielberg classic, and a beautiful film where Kristen Stewart eats a sandwich.
