Booster Gold and Blue Beetle

Warner Bros. has about ten DC Extended Universe movies planned for the next five years, and it looks like they’re crowding in one more. Rumor has it a Booster Gold / Blue Beetle team-up is in the works, with Greg Berlanti directing and Zak Penn writing. In contrast to the dark and gritty vibe of the other DC projects, this one is envisioned as a buddy comedy. More details on the Booster Gold movie after the jump.  Read More »

Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins

Disney has already invested in Emily Blunt with a small role as Miss Piggy’s assistant in The Muppets and one of the lead roles in the Broadway musical adaptation of Into the Woods. Recently there have been rumblings that Blunt is under consideration for Captain Marvel along with Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation star Rebecca Ferguson, but the actress had an interesting theory as to why those rumors keep circling.

And now Disney has another role for which they think the star of Edge of Tomorrow and this weekend’s Sicario would be perfect: Mary Poppins. That’s right, according to a new rumor, the House of Mouse wants Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in the recently announced musical sequel set in Depression-era London, about 20 years after the original.

George Miller directing Justice League Dark

There have been a lot of rumors swirling about the future of the Man of Steel lately. The sequel to his 2013 revival from Zack Snyder has been rumored to be one of the projects that Mad Max: Fury Road helmer George Miller could direct, but the film has also been said to be on “permanent hold” until Warner Bros. Pictures really figures out what they want to do with the Big Blue Boy Scout.

In addition, there have been rumblings that Warner Bros. wants more Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and less of the Man of Steel (though Snyder may have had a reasonable explanation for that). Still things have been somewhat uncertain for the future of Superman in the DC Comics universe.

However, fans probably shouldn’t worry because Superman will always be an integral part of this comic book world, especially with Justice League on the way. And a new rumor actually debunks the “permanent hold” status of the sequel, revealing a potential Man of Steel 2 release date window as well as another potential DC Comics project for George Miller.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Evel Knievel biopic

Evel Knievel was the prototype stuntman for the current age, a media-savvy showman who rode a devil-may-care attitude (and a willingness to endure pain) to fame and fortune. His rise and fall story is unique in its specifics, and woefully pedestrian in its arc of human foibles.

Who else has attempted to ride a steam-powered “rocket cycle” across a mile-wide canyon? And who cares if he made it? Knievel’s failures did as much myth-building as his successes. He was also a jerk who let his appetites run away with him. He cheated on his wife more times than anyone can count, and attacked his former promoter with a baseball bat, effectively braining his own career in the process.

Channing Tatum is obsessed with Evel Knievel, and he and his creative partner Reid Carolin are producing a biopic about the late stuntman which Tatum may star in as well. Now the film is reportedly courting a new director, who might be perfect for Knievel’s story of obsession and mental and physical intensity: Darren Aronofsky. Read More »

Akira live-action

The development of a live-action adaptation of Akira is a story that has quite a few twists and turns, but is pretty simple to summarize: no one has been able to crack it. Warner Bros. and Appian Way have tried with a few different creative teams, most recently with director Jaume Collet-Serra (Non-Stop) set to make the movie. But WB wanted budget cuts, and it all fell apart.

Earlier this summer, however, development turned back on with Sons of Anarchy writer and Daredevil second season co-showrunner Marco J. Ramirez on hand to script. Now there’s a new Akira live-action rumor, that Warner Bros. is pushing for three films, and that Christopher Nolan is somehow involved. (Update: Or perhaps not; multiple sources have told me that Nolan has no part in this development.) Guess those budget cuts might not be as much of an issue now. Read More »

Rumor: ‘Wonder Woman’ Wants Eva Green and Sean Bean

Wonder Woman Sean Bean

A new report claims Sean Bean and Eva Green are being eyed for two villain roles in the Warner Bros. superhero movie, which stars Gal Gadot as the titular superheroine. More about the Wonder Woman Sean Bean and Eva Green rumor after the jump.  Read More »
