Shazam trailer

Wonder Woman has a few moments of humor, Justice League has a handful of jokes, and Aquaman‘s drumming octopus showed a sense of self-awareness, but Shazam! looks to be the DC movie that relies on comedy the most. The good news? That approach seems to be the correct one for the story of a young boy who’s given the power to turn into a superhero when he utters a special word. Check out the latest Shazam trailer below. Read More »

future of warner bros

In the mid-to-late 2000s, Warner Bros. couldn’t be stopped. They were releasing hit after hit – big moneymakers like Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, the Harry Potter movies, and The Hangover, branding themselves as a filmmaker-friendly studio that would foster creativity and support directors in their visions. Compare that with, say, the colossal behind-the-scenes mess associated with Suicide Squad, and it’s clear that something changed.

But the studio hopes to return to those golden days, and they’re going to do it by focusing on making good movies instead of getting caught up in how much one of their DC superhero films connects with another. Read a new quote from WB head Kevin Tsujihara below, which also includes his desire to make more Mad Max and The Matrix films.

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.

Future DCEU films

The DCEU has had a bumpy few years, with only Wonder Woman truly standing out as a genuinely enjoyable film. Now, with Aquaman poised to splash into theaters, Warner Bros. film chairman Toby Emmerich has an innovative new plan for the future of the DCEU: make good movies. What a crazy idea!

aquaman trailer

There’s more to Atlantis than meets the eye. A new Aquaman image reveals that the glorious, underwater kingdom is not the shining city on top of a coral reef that mythology would have you believe. Instead, the Atlantis in Aquaman seems to be subject to the same rival rulers and political turmoil that have plagued human history — just with more great white sharks and sea dragons. Which, to be honest, is infinitely cooler than the lame horses that human warriors have been saddled with.

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.

Peter Jackson has kept something of a low-profile recently, but a new report indicates he’s ready to get back in the game. The filmmaker is weighing two different options: he’ll either join the DCEU for a new film, or he’ll head over to Amazon to help with their very expensive Lord of the Rings TV show.

harley quinn movie

Harley Quinn has had a meteoric rise to the front of Warner Bros.’ DC film slate, becoming the focus of three potential movie projects. And that’s based solely off of Margot Robbie‘s splashy appearance in 2016’s Suicide Squad — and the marketability of the character’s striking costume to the Hot Topic crowd. But while the states of the character’s potential spin-offs — the Joker and Harley Quinn movie, Gotham City Sirens — are still one big question mark, Robbie has been steadfastly pushing a Harley Quinn solo movie for the past few years.

But Harley might not be flying as solo as you would think.

No one could’ve predicted this, but Justice League has ended its theatrical run as the lowest-grossing DCEU film to date. Even Suicide Squad somehow made more money than DC’s huge superhero team-up film. So what happened with the Justice League box office?
