Rumor: Wonder Woman Could Appear In ‘Flashpoint’

Wonder Woman Could Appear In Flashpoint

When Warner Bros. announced a Flashpoint film as a part of their DCEU slate, it meant that their comic book movie universe could be in for a change. In the comics, Flashpoint is the result of Flash going back in time to rescue his mother only to find out that time has changed in the present. Meaning that he didn’t have his powers, Thomas Wayne became the Batman as the result of his son dying, and the entire world is at war with Themyscira and Atlantis.

Now there’s a rumor that Wonder Woman could be appearing in the Flashpoint movie. Find out more on this story below.

Wonder Woman

Things are shaping up well for Wonder Woman 2. After a long period of negotiating, Warner Bros. announced Patty Jenkins would return to direct the highly anticipated sequel, with a massive pay increase that would make her one of the highest paid female filmmakers in the industry. She will also be co-writing the script with Geoff Johns.

Now the two will be joined by an “Expendable” writer. But it’s not that kind of expendable. New reports confirm that The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham will be joining the team. More on the story below.

Matt Reeves Clears The Air, Confirms ‘The Batman’ Is In The DCEU

Matt Reeves

In the past few days, DC fans have been wondering what the heck is going on over at Warner Bros. Two different Joker movie announcements in two days, one is a Joker origin story not set in the DCEU, and the other a Joker and Harley movie that isn’t related to Suicide Squad 2 or Gotham City Sirens. While there are many trying to make some sense of this, one person who is clearing the air surrounding his movie is The Batman director Matt Reeves.

Yesterday, Reeves said WB told him that The Batman is “a standalone, it’s not part of the extended universe.” At the time, many speculated that it would be somehow related to the Joker origins movie and that Ben Affleck was no longer a part of this particular project. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. In fact, Reeves took to social media to confirm that The Batman will in fact be a part of the DCEU. Check out what he had to say below.

Joker and Harley Quinn Movie In The Works Starring Jared Leto, Margot Robbie
The Movie God   |  

Jared Leto and Margot Robbie as The Joker and Harley Quinn

I sure hope you like the Joker and Harley Quinn, geeks. Because a whole lot of them are incoming. We first saw the Batman villains together in Suicide Squad, played by Jared Leto and Margot Robbie. The actors will also be reprising the roles in the upcoming Suicide Squad 2 and Gotham City Sirens. On top of all of that, we just found out two days ago that a Joker origins movie separate from the established DC extended universe is being developed. That project, however, will cast someone new to play the diabolical prankster.

Now comes word of a new project in the works. The movie, which doesn’t have a title yet, will focus on the Joker and Harley Quinn characters, with Leto and Robbie due to play them here as well.

Matt Reeves Says ‘The Batman’ Is A Standalone Film That Is Not A Part Of The DCEU

Ben Affleck as Batman

If there was one DCEU film that has been giving Warner Bros. the biggest headache, it would have to be The Batman. The film which would see Ben Affleck reprise his role as the titular character has been going through a series of behind-the-scenes troubles that have prevented it from entering production. Affleck stepped down as the director because he felt unable to give the film the attention it needed. Then came the rumors that he no longer wanted to be Batman. And now there is word that Warner Bros. will be launching a new banner with DC, that will tell new and unique stories with new actors playing iconic characters that will be separate from the DCEU, such as the just announced Joker origins film.

Now I bring that up because it appears that The Batman is heading in the same direction. In a recent interview director Matt Reeves says the film is a standalone, and is not a part of DC’s extended universe. More on the story below.

Ben Affleck Says We’ll See A Different Kind Of Batman In ‘Justice League’
eelyajekiM   |  

Batman v Superman Ben Affleck Bat Signal

When we first saw Ben Affleck as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he was anything but happy. The Dark Knight was a pessimistic curmudgeon who believed that Superman presented a danger to the world. However, Supes’ sacrifice made him change his ways. And we’ve seen a little bit of that change in some of the trailers for Justice League. He certainly had a fun time recruiting Barry Allen (Ezra Miller). But I can’t say the same for Aquaman (Jason Momoa). But these changes in tone signify that the DCEU is walking away from the dark tones the franchise has started off with. Wonder Woman was a nice way to start off, and bringing in Joss Whedon to direct Justice League will help tone down the darkness.

Now Affleck says audiences will see a different kind of Batman in Justice League. According to him, it will be a “more traditional Batman.” More on the story below.

Rumor: ‘Justice League’ First Cut “Unwatchable”; Reshoots Fixing Tone
eelyajekiM   |  

Justice League team first look

Movie reshoots are becoming less of a normal thing and more of something to be deeply concerned about. Oftentimes, studios would have reshoots set in place to work out some of the issues of the film. But now it looks like it’s casting more doubt than an assurance that the film will be good. Case in point, Justice League. The highly anticipated film made a huge splash recently when WB debuted the newest trailer at SDCC. However, it was then met with criticism for looking more like a video game than an actual film. Even worse, details about WB working on Zack and Deborah Snyder‘s exit from the DCEU were revealed. Then there were the reshoots that called for star Henry Cavill’s mustache to be digitally erased.

Zack Snyder’s Creative Influence In DCEU To Be Significantly Reduced
eelyajekiM   |  

Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder and his wife, producer Deborah Snyder, have been a part of the DCEU creative force since the very beginning. In fact, Zack Snyder has been a major presence having directed Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, some of Suicide Squad, and was an executive producer and/or writer for Wonder Woman and Aquaman. But it appears that the filmmaker’s creative input could be minimized significantly as the DCEU moves forward.

According to new reports, the Snyders “will no longer have anything like the level of creative influence that got the franchise to this point.” More on the story below.
