Well, that was fast. We just learned that Sam Raimi was on a shortlist of potential directors to helm The Flash. Robert Zemeckis and Matthew Vaughn are also among the top names.

But just after that list was reported, word is that Raimi has taken himself out of the running. And that’s just the beginning. Another potential director we didn’t know about, Marc Webb, is also passing. It appears that Barry Allen will be without a father in the standalone film as well, as Billy Crudup has also dropped out.

The Flash Starring Ezra Miller

Warner Bros. isn’t giving up on the cinematic version of The Flash. Though the Scarlett Speedster has only made two cameo appearances, with his first major one coming in Justice League, he has yet to appear in his own standalone film. After the studio had a falling out with Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa over creative differences, the studio went back to the drawing board, canned ditched Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s draft, and opted to use a script written by Joby Harold (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword).

Now WB is ready to find a director. It’s being reported that Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit), who had been previously rumored, is still in the running, while the studio has also had meetings with Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class, Kingsman) and Sam Raimi (Evil Dead and Spider-Man trilogies). More on the story below.

Movie Review: King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword review header

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword
Director: Guy Ritchie
Screenwriter: Guy Ritchie, Joby Harold, Lionel Wigram.
Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Annabelle Wallis
Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 126 Minutes
Release Date: May 12, 2017

The legend of King Arthur has existed for well over a millennia, and as such has given way to countless interpretations of stories, TV shows, and films. So while we may be familiar with the name, there will always be a new way to look at the legend, a new way to tell the story, and a new way to rake in the cash. So just as superheroes are popular now, Guy Ritchie is giving audiences a reason to look at iconic literary characters. But while his previous efforts from the Sherlock Holmes films to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. may have been richly stylized and highly entertaining, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword suffers from a serious case of style over substance.

Check out the full review below.

Dunkirk trailer header

While Christopher Nolan has stepped away from the superhero genre for quite some time, he’s still in the business of large-scale epic films. The Interstellar director will be taking audiences to the past by revisiting one of the most critical events in World War II. Dunkirk is based on the real-life aftermath of the Battle of Dunkirk, which saw the Allied Forces (Britain, Belgium, Canada, and France) suffering a major blow to their military force and then stranded on the French coast. With the German army surrounding them, the Allied Forces execute Operation Dynamo, which helped evacuate the stranded soldiers in what is considered one of the most successful rescue missions of the war.

Check out the newest trailer for the film here below.

Joss Whedon To Write and Direct ‘Batgirl’ For WB

Batgirl

So much for superhero fatigue. The genre continues to dominate at the box office and no matter which side of the studio you are on, as long as it is successful we will be getting more of these films.

But after a few missteps, WB is ready to do some course correction by hiring the right directors – or at least getting out of their way. In the latest inspiring hire, WB is close to a deal with Joss Whedon to write, direct, and produce Batgirl. Which seems fitting since he was working with DC on a Wonder Woman movie before Marvel snatched him up for two Avengers films. More on the story below.
