Justice League - Flashpoint Movie

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.

wrath of khan reboot

We may see Khan in the flesh yet again. The genetically engineered baddie may appear in a rumored spin-off series of Star Trek: Discovery, one that Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer is attached to.

Reports have surfaced that Meyer’s secret Star Trek project is a Wrath of Khan reboot miniseries, depicting Khan in his exile before Wrath of Khan took place. Or, this could all be hearsay and we were all…khanned. Get it? No, okay.

Close Encounters of a third Kind

On July 3, 2017, Sony Pictures posted a mysterious teaser trailer on YouTube under the title “This Means Something.” The teaser trailer shows a UFO encounter from the point of view of air traffic control. The video ends with the iconic music notes from Steven Spielberg‘s 1977 film Close Encounters of a Third Kind and on-screen text sending viewers to a mysterious website to sign up to “receive updates on UFO sightings.” Is Sony planning a Close Encounters sequel or remake, or is this something about the film’s 40th anniversary?

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.

Aladdin Rumor: Tom Hardy as Jafar?

You’d think after the uproar that arises over every whitewashing debacle — Ghost in the Shell, Aloha, Pan, Exodus: Gods and Kings, The Last Airbender, and more that I could list but it would take approximately 10 years to do so — Hollywood would stop doing it. Or at least, stop and think, “Hey, maybe this is a bad idea.” But no, producers and directors keep going back to the age-old “the white actor is the default” adage, even if the source material calls for the exact opposite.

To be fair, I may be working myself up into a frenzy over a rumor that will never come to fruition. The rumor is pretty heinous though: Guy Ritchie, who will be adapting Disney’s live-action version of Aladdin, wants to cast Tom Hardy as the movie’s villain, Jafar.

justice league reshoots rumor

Reshoots are a part of the movie-making business. And it can seem overzealous to simply report on the fact that reshoots are happening — trust me, I’m as tired of these kind of stories as you are, especially when they act like this is something out of the ordinary. In many cases, they’re a good thing and help make a good movie great. But when reports say that Justice League has essentially been “remade…twice” after “significant” reshoots, and is looking at even more reshoots down the barrel, that’s seems — well — significant.

aquaman villain rumors

Aquaman‘s villain roster is in serious danger of overflowing.

Not only will Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman be facing off against Black Manta, Ocean Master and King Nereus, he will reportedly have to fight off the carnivorous critters known as The Trench. If that name doesn’t sound familiar, that’s because these sea creatures are a fairly new addition to the DC Comics canon — playing a pivotal part in Aquaman‘s New 52 relaunch.

Update: Screenwriter Rhett Reese chimed in to say that there’s no truth to this story. We have kept the original post intact, mainly because it’s still a pretty handy guide to characters who could pop up in the X-Force movie.

Spider-Man Rights

When Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced a partnership that would allow Spider-Man to become part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans lost their minds. The fact that Sony had the rights to Spider-Man initially meant that Marvel Studios previously could never bring the wallcrawler into a movie with The Avengers, but Tom Holland debuted as the webslinger in Captain America: Civil War, and now he gets his own new franchise starting with Spider-Man: Homecoming in July.

The future of Spider-Man will already include the next installment of The Avengers franchise and a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, but that’s currently as far as the partnership between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures goes, according to Kevin Feige. However, if Guardians of the Galaxy franchise star and Avengers: Infinity War cast member Dave Bautista is to be believed, there’s a chance Marvel Studios may end up being completely in control of Spider-Man’s future again.
