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.

The internet was abuzz yesterday following reports that Cavill had hung up his cape and parted ways with Warner Bros. But a cryptic new Instagram video from the (former ?) Man of Steel himself may have confirmed that this is not the case. Or it is? We have no idea.

henry cavill exits superman

Updated: In a statement responding to reports of Cavill exiting the role of Superman, Warner Bros. said, “While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.” Our original story continues below.

stan lee cameo

Stan Lee‘s cameo power is so strong that he’s started to move across the aisle to DC movies. The Marvel Comics legend has become an ubiquitous presence in Marvel movies, appearing in both Marvel Studios and X-Men movies for the past few decades.

dc films plans

Two Joker movies? One and a half Harley Quinn spin-offs? A Ben Affleck-less Batman movie? At this point, we’ve given up trying to make sense of Warner Bros.’ DC Films plans. But newly appointed DC Entertainment film production president Walter Hamada is doing his best to make them sensible once again.

That includes seemingly rebooting much of the DC Extended Universe, and potentially launching a new label to encompass the multiple standalone and off-universe films that Warner Bros. has in the works. Because that will make people less confused over both Jared Leto and Joaquin Phoenix playing the Joker.

Justice League reshoots

Everyone’s favorite game coming out of Justice League has been the increasingly fruitless question of “who gets credit for my favorite scene: Joss Whedon or Zack Snyder?”

Joss Whedon took over the reshoots for Justice League after director Zack Snyder had to leave the DC Extended Universe superhero ensemble due to a family tragedy. But the hoopla surrounding the reshoots, which reportedly drastically changed the film at the behest of Warner Bros., sent fans into a tizzy, with many embarking on a treasure hunt for scenes that hinted at Snyder’s “original vision.” (They couldn’t find it, and instead petitioned for a non-existent “director’s cut.”) But in the weeks since Justice League‘s release, we have learned a little more of who shot what — and the newest revelation is a little surprising.
