Wonder Woman 1984 Photos

When Wonder Woman was released in 2017, Warner Bros. was in the midst of trying to build its DC Film universe. It had laid the foundation with Man of Steel and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and was attempting to quick-bake itself a cinematic universe that would culminate in the team-up film Justice League. But when Wonder Woman hit theaters just a few months before Justice League, it became a box office sensation, attracting audiences for its standalone nature that barely made any allusions to the greater DC Film universe.

That standalone success was something that director Patty Jenkins would double down on in Wonder Woman 1984, the not-a-sequel to Wonder Woman that takes place decades before Wonder Woman is supposedly introduced to the world in Batman vs. Superman. But how exactly does it fit into the wider DC Film universe, or DC Extended Universe, when Wonder Woman is doing her duty to protect humanity in a very public fashion? Producer Charles Roven explained it all to /Film during a set visit to Wonder Woman 1984.

dc movies streaming

HBO Max’s rollout wasn’t as notoriously bad as Quibi’s, but the team behind WarnerMedia’s new streaming service probably would have benefited from being a little clearer about the availability of certain movies and shows on the platform. That extends to its roster of DC-centric content, because while the company previously announced that movies like Justice League, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and more would be leaving the service on July 1, it has since changed course on that. Now those movies (and several others) will be available on HBO Max through December of this year. Get the details below.

Nightwing movie update

It’s been almost two years since Warner Bros. and DC announced a solo film about Nightwing, aka Dick Grayson, and director Chris McKay has been relatively quiet about it as the script approaches completion. Things have been so quiet, in fact, that some fans have been wondering if the project is still happening at all. But according to McKay, the Nightwing film is still a possibility. Read his latest quote below.

the flash

The Flash may be the fastest man alive on the comic book pages, but when it comes to the big screen, he’s positively sluggish.

The Flash standalone movie has been hit with yet another delay, as Warner Bros. pushes back the expected production start date for Ezra Miller‘s solo superhero film. Now it seems that Miller, who was cast as the scarlet speedster back in 2014, will have to wait at least three more years until he gets his solo movie.

Hamada has been named the DC Movies president, tasked with shepherding the embattled DC Extended Universe past the critical and commercial stumbles that climaxed with last year’s Justice League.

DC Extended Universe

Why so serious? Because we’ve all been duped for years, that’s why.

When word came out earlier today about Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s revamped take on their cinematic universe, you may have noticed that we didn’t refer to it as the DC Extended Universe, or “DCEU,” in our article. That’s because we’ve discovered that we’ve all spent the past few years looking like fools: it turns out that term is an unofficial name that was literally made up by a reporter as a joke and was somehow adopted into mainstream usage by every outlet that writes about movies.

shazam actor

Superheroes often have to balance alter egos — the face they show to the public, and the facade they fight evil with in order to protect their loved ones. It’s a fascinating Jekyll and Hyde dynamic that goes on almost every superhero — except for the majority of the Avengers, who fight with their identities out in broad daylight.

But what if a superhero literally had two personas, split between their public identity and their heroic one? That’s exactly what Shazam does, and how the film version plans to cast its actors, with the separation of the superpowered Shazam and Billy Batson, the kid given magical, transformative powers. It’s not quite as existential as it sounds.

the batman being in the dceu

UpdateThe Batmadirector Matt Reeves has clarified his remarks about The Batman not being “part of” the DC Extended Universe. He confirmed on Twitter that The Batman will still take place in the DC universe. See more below.

***

The state of The Batman movie has been in a state of flux since its inception. At first, Ben Affleck was set to direct, then not. Matt Reeves came on board and decided to throw out the original script in favor of his own. And most recently it’s been speculated that Ben Affleck won’t even end up starring in the film.

Now, it seems that the one thing that we thought was taken for granted that The Batman would fall under Warner Bros.’ growing DC Cinematic Universe, may not be true. Reeves confirmed that when he joined the project, Warner Bros. allowed him to approach The Batman as a standalone movie that he says won’t be connected to the larger DCEU.

Justice League Reshoots

Frenzied reports of the goings-on of the Justice League reshoots have DC Extended Universe fans concerned that this spells Doomsday for massive superhero team-up movie. But Justice League star and Caped Crusader himself, Ben Affleck, is swooping in to save the day and say, don’t worry. Um…we think?

Affleck commented on the upcoming Justice League movie, which was directed by Zack Snyder before he left due to family tragedy. Former Marvel Studios favorite Joss Whedon, who had recently jumped across the aisle to direct Batgirl, stepped in to handle reshoots. The two-director situation is unusual, but shouldn’t have fans too worried, Affleck said, diplomatically calling Justice League “an interesting product of two directors.” Interesting.
