Batman and Robin

Batman & Robin is an objectively terrible movie, possibly still the worst superhero movie ever made. But it’s been 20 years now…can’t we all just relax?

It’s two decades later and director Joel Schumacher is still apologizing for the garish, neon-soaked nightmare that is Batman & Robin. And while I’m willing to forgive him on some things — the ice puns are unironically great — those bat nipples still baffle me and presumably everyone else. And Schumacher realizes this, explaining the thought process that led to him creating those infamous rubber nipples. And on that front, he’s not sorry.

How The LEGO Batman Movie Should Have Ended

This week brought The LEGO Batman Movie to Blu-ray and DVD to bring some darkness to your movie collection, and in honor of the home video release of The LEGO Movie spin-off, we have a new edition of How It Should Have Ended.

The LEGO Batman Movie gets a new ending that’s much more straightforward than the more recent installments of HISHE. It’s the first one in awhile that’s concerned only with the ending as opposed to some of the other scenes earlier in the movie. Plus, it makes for the perfect tie-in to the usual diner chat between Batman and Superman. As a bonus, this episode of HISHE is stop-motion animated with real LEGO minifigures that make it feel just like the real movie.

Venom won't be in a Marvel Studios movie

Earlier today, Spider-Man star Tom Holland confirmed that two more Spidey sequels are in the works, and I’m sure speculation has already begun about which villains the ol’ webhead might end up facing off against in the years to come. But there’s one character it seems like fans can safely take off the table: the alien symbiote Venom.

In a new interview, Marvel mega-producer and creative guru Kevin Feige explains why Venom won’t be in a Marvel Studios anytime soon. Hit the jump to learn what Feige said about the Venom MCU possibilities.

Wonder Woman Poster

The DCEU hit its first home run with Wonder Woman, finally giving one of DC Comics’ Trinity characters her own long-awaited live-action movie. Monster director Patty Jenkins absolutely crushed it, blending fantastical worlds, Greek myths, historical fact, and a period setting into a terrific synthesis of comic book movie images that felt like a real movie instead of just a collection of sloppily edited scenes.

Jenkins has earned bragging rights because of the film’s critical reception and stellar box office returns, but the director relayed a Wonder Woman reaction to fans on Twitter yesterday that means more to her than either of those things.

Shadowman movie

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is currently king of the mountain when it comes to telling interconnecting stories across multiple movies, but Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe and Universal’s Dark Universe are looking to build their own ongoing cinematic universes. Valiant Entertainment, a company looking to use their comic books as the basis for a cinematic universe of their own, has been waiting on the sidelines since 2012, and it seems like they’re finally inching closer to joining the fray with a film based on Shadowman.

Reginald Hudlin, a veteran director and producer, has been hired to take the reins on this one, and he’ll team with an acclaimed showrunner to rewrite the script.

justice league reshoot

Reshoots are a common part of the blockbuster movie business and while we can whip ourselves into a frenzy over news of “significant reshoots” or additional returning characters, the vast majority of additional photography exist for one purpose: to make a movie better. But with Wonder Woman surprising everyone with its critical acclaim and box office success, it’s no wonder that it may be affecting upcoming Warner Bros. projects…including the next big DC Extended Universe movie: Justice League.

Photos from the set of the superhero team-up movie suggest that Gal Gadot‘s role in Justice League may be bigger than originally intended. And honestly, I don’t mind.

Quasar

Guardians of the Galaxy series director James Gunn posted a tweet yesterday that is leading fans to speculate that the character Quasar might appear in the third installment of Marvel’s cosmic franchise. Was the tweet a sly tease, an unintentional slip-up, or just an observation completely unrelated to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3? That’s the question.

New Spider-Man Trilogy

This summer will bring Spider-Man: Homecoming, the solo debut of the new webslinger played by Tom Holland after his introduction in Captain America: Civil War, to theaters. This new beginning marks a unique collaboration between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, but just how far will it go?

There’s already a Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel set for release in 2019, and before that, Spidey will make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War. But as Kevin Feige said during a press day visit to the Marvel Studios offices on the Disney lot, “That’s as far as it goes for now.” However, if Tom Holland is to be believed, it sounds like the Spider-Man deal will go at least one movie beyond that.
