George Miller directing Man of Steel 2

As we wait to see whether or not Warner Bros. Pictures will move forward with a sequel to Mad Max: Fury Road, it sounds like director George Miller could end up getting behind the camera for another sequel at the studio.

John Schnepp, the director of the documentary The Death of Superman Lives, has reportedly heard that Miller has been lined up to direct Man of Steel 2, the follow-up to Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot from 2013. Find out more about George Miller directing Man of Steel 2 below! Read More »

Tyrese Gibson as Green Lantern

Grammy winner turned actor Tyrese Gibson already counts two big franchises in his career with Transformers and Fast and Furious, but early this year we learned the actor was campaigning hard to be the new Green Lantern for the developing DC Comics cinematic universe.

Gibson seemed to hint that a big announcement was coming at Comic-Con, but the only thing we learned in San Diego was that the reboot of the aforementioned DC Comics property was called Green Lantern Corps., essentially confirming the previous rumor that there would be two Green Lanterns taking the lead this time, almost in a buddy cop kind of scenario.

Now the actor has confirmed that he has met with Warner Bros. Pictures about playing Green Lantern, but that’s about all he can say right now. Find out more about the potential of Tyrese Gibson playing Green Lantern below. Read More »

Ben Affleck directing Batman

With the San Diego Comic-Con just a couple weeks away, we’re likely going to get an onslaught of new information and sneak peeks at whatever Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have in store for the DC Comics cinematic universe.

The new comic book sandbox won’t kick into full gear until Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives, and then we’ve got a whole slew of DC heroes headed towards the big screen over the next few years. We’ve already got a full slate of films lined up through 2019, but it sounds like some of those plans might be expanding if a new rumor is to be believed.

Reportedly, Warner Bros. has Ben Affleck lined up to direct his own solo Batman movie for release in the fall of 2018. Find out more about Ben Affleck directing Batman after the jump. Read More »

warner bros dc movies

The Internet has made a sport of questioning how Warner Bros. is handling their DC properties. First fans scoffed at Man of Steel. Next they hated Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman. Many felt a Batman v Superman movie was a rush. Ditto for Justice League. Then there was Jared Leto’s Joker make-up, the loss of Michelle MacLaren as Wonder Woman director and the fact they’re using multiple screenwriters to figure out many of these movies.  It’s like Superhero Movie Whack-A-Mole, there’s always something to hit.

So it’s nice for one of the people responsible for those decisions to finally get his say. That would be the head of film production at Warner Bros., Greg Silverman. He, along with marketing president Sue Kroll and CEO Kevin Tsujihara are the three people most directly responsible for green lighting movies at Warner Bros. In a new interview, Silverman explained the strategy of having multiple screenwriters tackle some of the DC movies, how their DC movies will attempt to be different from Marvel’s and more.

Justice League concept art

Just this past week, we learned a documentary is in the works that will chronicle the abandoned attempt by director George Miller to adapt the DC Comics superhero team Justice League for the big screen. Now the team behind the documentary is getting some buzz started for the project by revealing art via Twitter.

What claims to be the official Twitter account for the documentary, tentatively titled Miller’s Justice League Mortal, has revealed three pieces of concept art created when the film was still developing several years ago. Two pieces feature Wonder Woman in action, while the other shows what Aquaman potentially could have looked like. Check out George Miller’s Justice League concept art after the jump. Read More »

Justice League
