Masters of the Universe Release Date

The road to get a Masters of the Universe movie in theaters again has been paved with endless pit stops and speed bumps. Countless directors have flirted with the property, and plenty of writers have taken a crack at the script, including writers Alex Litvak and Mike Finch, who initially worked on the script over six years ago, circling back to try again most recently. Now we have some good news, some potentially decent news, and some great news regarding the development of the fantasy adaptation.

The good news is, Sony Pictures has officially given a 2019 release date to the film. The potentially decent news is there’s a new writer on board. And the great news is that McG is no longer involved as director. Find about the Masters of the Universe release date and development after the jump. Read More »

Green Lantern Corps Director

Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment already have Aquaman shooting this year, taking the December release date vacated by Avatar 2. But they also hope to have another piece of the DC Expanded Universe in front of cameras before the end of the year. One of the less likely options was Green Lantern Corps, a film that doesn’t have a director (just like The Flash), but there may be one waiting in the wings.

A new rumor indicates that Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice writer David S. Goyer, who is co-writing Green Lantern Corps with Justin Rhodes, might end up directing Green Lantern CorpsRead More »

Eventually, someone is going to write the comprehensive book about the superhero movie boom of the past fifteen years and it’s going to be a fascinating read. In the meantime, all we can do is pick through the rubble, dredge up trivia, and examine the broader strokes of how this genre, and the people making these movies, have changed.

And sometimes, an interesting nugget of information bubbles to the surface. In this case, it’s a quote from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice screenwriter David S. Goyer, who called the mere idea of a Batman vs. Superman movie terrible. Over a decade ago. While promoting Batman Begins. Which he also wrote.

krypton series update

You can’t bring up Man of Steel on the internet without wading into some kind of big argument about the moral implications of Superman punching buildings or how Marvel is better or some other kind of nonsense. But surely we can all agree that the film’s prologue, set on the planet Krypton shortly before its destruction, is pretty fantastic stuff? (Ed. note: No. But go on.) In just a few scenes, director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer craft an entire science fiction world that demands further exploration. Any movie that features Russell Crowe dodging laser blasts while astride a giant bug-dragon is okay by us.

So the idea of an entire TV series set on Krypton, titled, uh, Krypton, sounds appealing, even if the ending is pre-determined by Superman lore (Spoiler alert: everyone dies). And while it’s been a year since the show was officially announced, Goyer has revealed in a new interview that yes, the show is still in the works, thanks for asking.

Check out Goyer’s Krypton series update after the jump.

Batman Superman

When Zack Snyder shot Man of Steel, he did so about two years before its release date. Despite early reports, it looks like he’s following a similar schedule for the sequel, Batman vs. Superman. The release date for the film is July 17, 2015 and a recent article stated filming would begin in early 2014. However, the film’s screenwriter, David Goyer, recently teased that the movie is a bit “a further a long than what I think people realize.” So how soon could Batman and Superman do battle on camera? A European casting call says three weeks from now, October 18.

Man of Steel

Note: This article contains spoilers for Man of Steel.

The final act of Man of Steel is filled with a few things that caused all kinds of controversy. Besides the wanton destruction of Metropolis, many fans were not happy that Superman resorted to murder to defeat General Zod. Their argument is that Superman, a being who is (ideally) utterly good, would never have killed his enemy. He’s beyond such actions, and a “no killing” policy has been adhered to for decades in many of Superman’s stories.

David S. Goyer, however, disagrees. The writer of Batman Begins, Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman vs. Superman recently spoke about his work in the DC Universe. He doesn’t think the “Superman doesn’t kill” rule is necessarily valid in the films. He also suggested the act will have ramifications moving forward, in films such as Batman vs. Superman. Read his quotes and more below. Read More »

Read his quotes, as well as a updates on Wonder Wonder, Aquaman and The Flash. Read More »
