Although we’ve had an eye on Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman for a while now, we actually don’t know a whole lot about it at this point. It’s confirmed that Patty Jenkins will direct, with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine starring. Beyond that, we don’t know what it’ll be about, who the villain will be, or when and where it takes place.
All we have to go by right now is rumor and speculation, and on that front one particularly interesting tidbit is making the rounds today. While an earlier rumor indicated Wonder Woman would be set in the 1920s, this new one says it’ll go back even further than that. More about the possible Wonder Woman setting after the jump.

Before Ben Affleck was officially locked down to direct, co-write and star in his own solo Batman movie at Warner Bros., the story started as a rumor following a test screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice attended by the film’s crew and studio executives.
While the reaction to the screening was reportedly overwhelmingly positive, a new rumor says Warner Bros. now wants to make some changes. Supposedly the studio thinks that Batman v Superman needs more of Ben Affleck as Batman in the movie and less of Henry Cavill as Superman. Why? Well, the reasoning is that Affleck is blowing Cavill off the screen, so they think more of The Dark Knight will only help the movie. Details on Batman v Superman adding more Batman to the flick below! Read More »

A few weeks ago, Michael Shannon sent the Internet in a tizzy when he casually revealed Zod would have flippers for hands in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Did this back up certain rumors about a certain transformation? Was he actually talking about flippers, or just flipper-shaped prosthetics? For that matter, why’s Zod in Batman v Superman at all?
Well, Shannon’s finally got some answers for us, sort of. The actor has walked back those Zod flipper hands comments, claiming that it was all a joke and he made the whole thing up. And while Shannon is involved with Batman v Superman, it’s a voice-only role. Read his clarification after the jump. Read More »

The third Marvel series for Netflix, Luke Cage, should begin shooting soon, and we’ll see the show in 2016. The series follows Daredevil, which had its first season debut earlier this year, and Jessica Jones, which just finished it’s primary shoot, and will debut later in 2015. Luke Cage will star Mike Coulter as the title character (who gets his introduction in Jessica Jones) but at this point we don’t know much more about the show.
There’s a rumored Luke Cage synopsis doing the rounds, however, and since the character is probably an unknown to mainstream audiences we’ll indulge it, even if the description is basically just a condensed synopsis of early Marvel Comics issues. Read More »

A new rumor recently popped up saying that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was in talks to take over the Man of Steel franchise from Zack Snyder. But considering the movie isn’t officially on Warner Bros. Pictures’ schedule for their DC Comics cinematic universe, it didn’t sound like it was an immediate concern for the studio.
Now another rumor seems to confirm a lack of urgency to get Man of Steel 2 off the ground as the project is reportedly on “permanent hold.” But what does that even mean? Read More »

In 2013, Marvel got back the rights to Blade. Since then, there have been on-again, off-again rumblings of a new Blade movie or TV show — some of it coming directly from Blade himself, Wesley Snipes. Now a new report adds an interesting wrinkle to the ongoing speculation.
Rumor has it the next Blade movie won’t center around Eric Brooks — the Blade played by Snipes in earlier films — but will be about his daughter, Fallon Grey. More details on the possible female Blade movie after the jump. Read More »
