James Wan Leaving Aquaman

The Conjuring business is booming. Director James Wan‘s universe of horrors is about to gain one more chapter with this week’s Annabelle: Creation, which our own Ethan Anderton praised as a “suspenseful, scary and superior follow-up to Annabelle.” Two future additions to the Conjuring universe are in the pipeline: a third adventure with the Warrens and The Crooked Man movie.

Below, Wan discusses making the spin-offs different flavor and why he won’t rush The Conjuring 3.

aquaman Comic-Con

The next DC Comics movie from Warner Bros. Pictures may be Justice League, but several of the characters from the superhero squad have yet to get their own feature film. Wonder Wonder made her solo debut with box office that’s still rolling in this summer, but the next solo superhero adventure will takes us to see.

Aquaman will give the king of Atlantis his own movie for the first time in the character’s history. Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) already made his debut as the hero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will get even more screentime in Justice League, but fans are anxious to see how the character fares when he’s on his own. Warner Bros. gave fans a taste of what’s to come next year with a sneak peek at Aquaman, and you can find out more about it below. Read More »

Fast and Furious 9 director

Earlier this week, we wrote about how there’s a chance The Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray might not return for the upcoming Fast 9. But this is one of Universal’s biggest moneymakers, so somebody has to take on the tremendous challenge of leading the massive production as the series barrels toward its planned ending. Who could successfully shoulder the weight of a long-running film franchise yet still deliver an entertaining spectacle in a quick and efficient manner? I’ve come up with 10 filmmakers I think are up to the task, so read on for my list of who could be the Fast and Furious 9 director.

the conjuring 2 spoiler review 6

The Conjuring is one of the best horror movies of the 21st century so far and The Conjuring 2 is one of the best horror sequels ever made, so the news that The Conjuring 3 is officially in the works at Warner Bros. is music to my ears.

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.

So today is a day of speculation. As Matt Reeves and Mat Ross emerge as apparent frontrunners, it’s time to do that thing where we make a list of people who should direct the next Batman movie.

Most of all, this an excuse for us to just goof off and daydream while Warner Bros. figures everything out.
