Justice League by Alex Ross (header size)

Fanboys who read movie websites aren’t the only ones who realize Marvel is beating DC at the movie theater. A 7th grader was tasked with writing a company for a school project and he chose DC Comics. He wrote that he’s a huge fan of DC’s properties but asks “How does DC plan to compete against Marvel movies when Marvel seemingly dominates the live action superhero movie industry?” Good question, kid!

Here’s the best part. Not only did DC respond, but the company answered his question by discussing distributors and claiming “our movies by far exceed all of Marvel’s in sales.” Read More »

Man of Steel Poster header 2

Warner Bros. made it clear last week that they were eager to move on a Man of Steel sequel when they fast-tracked the project with director Zack Snyder and writer David Goyer returning — days before the first Man of Steel had even hit theaters. Now a new report reveals just how impatient the studio is. According to a source, Warner Bros. is hoping to push out Man of Steel 2 by 2014, with Justice League following the year after.

That’s a tight schedule for any movie project, let alone ones as expansive and expensive as these two. Good thing, then, that Snyder and Goyer have already started thinking about where to take Superman next. Hit the jump to get the details and read their comments.

Though Guillermo Del Toro always seems like he has a dozen projects on his plate, very few of them are actively being shot; they’re all in various stages of development. From time to time, he dabbles on one or another until new life is breathed into it. He’s currently focused on finishing Pacific Rim for a July release, prepping Crimson Peak to be his follow-up and, in an exciting turn of events, pitching his DC Comics monsters team up picture to the studio.

We’ve heard that team-up film may be called Heaven Sent, then Dark Universe. Some places are now calling it Justice League Dark, but Del Toro confirmed he’s set to tell the Warner Bros. executives about it soon. Read some of his ideas below. Read More »
