Justice League Aquaman Jason Momoa

The DCEU is undergoing a rebrand in the wake of Justice League‘s flop. And directors are taking note of distancing themselves from the film with stories that serve the characters rather than lead up to the ensemble event.

While Aquaman may be the only DCEU film to hit theaters later this year, WB is now releasing a batch of new images from the upcoming film. In addition, director James Wan spoke about his vision for the character and why the film will distance itself from Justice League. More on the story below.

Walter Hamada’s Plans For DC Films Could Include A Major Rebranding For The Studio

Justice League

It’s not easy to understand what exactly is going on with Warner Brothers’ DC film properties. For one thing, they have two Joker films, an uncertain future with other DCEU titles, and a number of previous titles that have failed to live up to expectations. The only reasonably good DCEU film the studio has is Wonder Woman. And after a series of stumbles, the studio is looking to Walter Hamada to steer DC in the right direction.

Hamada, who was named president of DC Entertainment-based film production at Warner Bros. in January, will have to figure out its future. This includes sorting out the DCEU films and giving its much darker ones a new banner. More on the story below.

Rumor: Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’ Could Be A Reboot and Move On Without Ben Affleck

Batman v Superman Ben Affleck Bat Signal

It wouldn’t be The Batman without the rumor mill churning out another rumor about it being Ben Affleck‘s last DCEU film. Rumors of the actor trying to find a graceful exit have been floating around since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice failed to meet expectations. But the actor stuck to his film commitments, and if we are to believe the rumors, he wants out any way possible.

So, one way was The Batman, a Batman standalone that he was supposed to write and direct. While he wasn’t able to crack that script, the film could still be used as an outlet for his exit. Now there are reports that the film could just be rebooted entirely, and without Affleck. More on the story below.

Gal Gadot and Chris Pine In Wonder Woman

Production on Wonder Woman 1984 has finally begun. While we could go on and on about how Wonder Woman is one of the only decent film in the DCEU (actually it’s the only good one), you don’t care about that. It’s the headline.

Yes, Chris Pine is back. So while the other Chrises are playing in the Marvel sandbox, it looks like Pine has found a way to come back to DC’s. Only now we should get ready for parachute pants, frizzy hair, and pilot jumpsuits. Check out the image below.

Geoff Johns Exits DC Entertainment Position; Will Write ‘Green Lantern Corps’

Geoff Johns To Write Green Lantern Corps

The long-gestating Green Lantern Corps hasn’t been in the news much since it was announced at Comic-Con a few years back. Since then, we’ve seen very little of the character in the DCEU. In fact, one lantern made an appearance in the opening sequence of Justice League. But Green Lantern Corps is just one of the many titles to be announced in recent years. Unfortunately, Justice League‘s poor box office performance, forced Warner Bros. to rethink their plans for the DCEU. This included revamping the creative forces behind it. And now it looks like there will be even more changes. But they will be positive ones.

Reports are saying Geoff Johns, who was the head of DC Entertainment, will be stepping down from his position. He will, however, be staying at WB and stick close to DC. That’s because Johns will be launching his own production company, Mad Ghost Productions, within the studio all the while writing the script for the Green Lantern Corps movie. More on the story below.

Now we know. According to new reports Spielberg, along with his Amblin Entertainment, are set to produce Blackhawk, a World War II title that features DC characters. The film is also being developed for Spielberg to direct. This is the second major collaboration between the two since Ready Player One. More on the story below.

Batgirl

After Joss Whedon dropped out of directing Batgirl, there was a call to add a female voice to the film. So Warner Bros. has given us just that.

In light of Whedon’s exit, Christina Hodson, the writer of the upcoming Bumblebee Transformers spinoff and Birds of Prey, will now be penning the script for the latest DCEU title. Now let’s just hope it doesn’t become another title that stays in production hell. More on the story below.

Ava DuVernay

Ava DuVernay became the first woman of color to direct a major motion picture that was over $100 million budget. Now the director will do it again with her second feature, which will be another pricey adaptation, but of a different sort.

She will go from A Wrinkle In Time to a big screen adaptation of DC’s The New Gods for Warner Bros. More on the story below.

The Killing Joke

The history of the Joker is never told the same way, but there is one arc fans refer to as the definitive backstory for the Clown Prince of Crime, Batman: The Killing Joke. So it should come as no surprise that director Todd Philips would want to look at it for his Joker origins film.

A new report says Phillips will be drawing some inspiration from The Killing Joke, in which a failed comedian falls into a vat of acid bleaching his skin and warping his mind, for the still untitled Joker origins film. More on the story below.

Joss Whedon out as Batgirl director

Some things aren’t just meant to be. Despite making the jump from Marvel Studios to DCEU, it looks like Joss Whedon‘s vision for Batgirl won’t come true. It’s been confirmed that the Justice League director has exited the project, leaving Batgirl without a director. More on the story below.
