Green Lantern Corps header

Like Marvel Studios, Warner Bros would like to release at least two superhero films a year. Last year, the studio released Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. This year they will be releasing Wonder Woman and Justice League. Next year puts that plan in jeopardy as they only have Aquaman scheduled for release. However, they clearly want to put one of five films into production, so they can keep releasing two a year. While we still don’t know if the film is going to be The Flash, Suicide Squad 2, Dark Universe, Gotham City Sirens, or Green Lantern Corps, there is a rumor that WB wants David Goyer to be the director of one of them.

More on the story below.

Green Lantern Corps header

Warner Bros. and DC have been setting up for their superhero standalone films post Justice League by introducing some notable heroes in the ensemble films. But one hero who has been absent is Green Lantern.

We learned that the next Green Lantern film wouldn’t be about one particular Green Lantern but the entire Green Lantern Corps, with the possibility that one of them would make a cameo appearance in Justice League. Whether or not the rumor is true remains to be seen, however, it looks like WB is pushing forward with the film’s development by hiring David Goyer and Justin Rhodes to write the script. More on the story below.

Guillermo del Toro May Direct ‘Fantastic Voyage’ Remake Produced By James Cameron
eelyajekiM   |  

Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro

James Cameron is currently developing those back-to-back-to-back Avatar sequels as we speak, which forced him to put his long-gestating projects like Battle Angel and a remake of the 1966 sci-fi film Fantastic Voyage on the backburner. Fortunately, Robert Rodriguez entered talks to direct Battle Angel, while Cameron stays on the project as a producer. So that leaves Fantastic Voyage without a director. However, it sounds like the remake may now get one.

According to a new report, Crimson Peak director Guillermo del Toro is in talks to develop and direct the remake. With Pacific Rim 2 on indefinite hold, the long-awaited creative team of del Toro and Cameron may finally arrive in the form of Fantastic Voyage. More on the story below.

David Goyer Defends Killing General Zod In ‘Man Of Steel’ (Again)
eelyajekiM   |  

Michael Shannon as General Zod

At this point, one would think we have moved past the fact that Superman (Henry Cavill) killed General Zod (Michael Shannon) in Man of Steel, two years after the release of the film. So if you still harbor any ill-will over such a decision, then you are not alone. But director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David Goyer had to defend Supes killing Zod on numerous occasions, both citing that the hero was put in a difficult situation and forced to make an equally difficult decision. Whether or not you agree with this, it’s clear that Superman’s actions in Man of Steel have had a polarizing effect on DC fans.

But it appears that some still haven’t gotten over their non-killing hero killing someone in cold blood. So Goyer is once again defending Superman killing Zod, because the events leading up to that moment justify Superman’s actions and “that’s the right way to tell that story.” More on the story below.

Blu-ray Review: Man Of Steel
The Movie God   |  

Man of Steel Blu-ray

Man of Steel
3-Disc Blu-ray/DVD/Digital l 2-Disc DVD/Digital l Instant
DIRECTOR: Zack Snyder
WRITER: David Goyer
STARRING: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Christopher Meloni, Antje Traue, Harry Lennix, Ayelet Zurer, Dylan Sprayberry, Richard Schiff
Warner Brothers
RELEASE DATE: November 12, 2013

“What was I supposed to do, just let them die?” … “Maybe.”

That’s part of a conversation had between a young Clark Kent and his adoptive father Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) after Clark saves a bus full of kids from certain death, and a good indicator of what kind of movie Man of Steel, the latest take on iconic superhero Superman, aims to be.

Directed by Zack Snyder, the movie opens on the planet Krypton with Jor-El (Russell Crowe) witnessing the birth of his son and then going to try and warn a council of leaders of the planet’s impending doom before General Zod (Michael Shannon) attempts a coup and things begin escalating toward a state of chaos and destruction. Thinking quickly, Jor-El recovers a crucial item in preserving the Kryptonian race and sends it along with his newborn child, Kal-El, the first naturally born baby on the planet in centuries, off to planet Earth.

There he lives for the next 33 years, dealing with many of the things we all dealt with growing up, while also trying to keep his special abilities as secret as possible. But when General Zod finally locates the adult Kal-El (Henry Cavill) he comes to Earth to get what he’s been seeking all these years, no matter what the cost.

David Goyer Addresses Controversial Man Of Steel Ending

Any sort of changes to an established comic book hero like Superman will be controversial in some shape or form. Some say that the third act of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel contained needless destruction, but the pinnacle act that was the most polarizing was what happened between Superman and General Zod at the end of the film.

SPOILERS for Man of Steel follow in the remainder of this article.

If you didn’t attend the San Diego Comic-Con this past Saturday or were one of the many people who couldn’t get into the coveted Hall H that day, then you might have heard that Zack Snyder dropped by to announce that the Man Of Steel sequel would hit theaters Summer 2015.
