Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Henry Cavill Wayne Manor

Remember when it was reported that Henry Cavill departed from the role of Superman after talks between WB and Cavill’s WME reps for a Shazam! cameo fell through? Well, that appears to have been an over exaggeration. At least, that’s what Aquaman star Jason Momoa is saying. The actor, who played the King of Atlantis alongside the Man of Steel in last year’s Justice League, says Cavill is not giving up the role.

So what about those reports that Warner Bros. is not only not moving forward with any new Superman projects but instead making Supergirl a high priority? More on all of that below.

Movie Review: Aquaman

Aquaman

Aquaman
Director: James Wan
Writers: David Leslie, Johnson-McGoldrick, Will Beall
Cast: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman
Studio: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 143 Minutes
Release Date: December 21, 2018

Aquaman may be one of the most iconic superheroes in the DC lineup, but the character himself has a reputation for being one of the silliest superheroes. Furthermore, his introduction in Zach Snyder’s Justice League did not do him any favors. That being said, Jason Momoa‘s portrayal was a radical change for the one-dimensional pasty white hero. Instead, we got something that truly represented the character’s struggle of living in two worlds while acknowledging his overall cheesiness.

This helped lay the foundation for his own standalone film. Directed by James Wan, Aquaman sees the return of Momoa playing the aquatic eponymous hero in a globe-trotting superhero epic. By embracing many of the title character’s foibles and cheesiness, the film turns out to be one of the best DCEU entries to date. And while that is an easy bar to cross over, its world-building and willingness to have fun expands the cinematic universe and opens the door for the DCEU to explore bold and new possibilities. Check out my review of Aquaman here below.

That’s because the DC female heroine ensemble will actually be called by the aforementioned title. More on the report below.

Young Bruce Wayne and Alfred To Appear In The Joker

The Joker will be a hard-boiled crime drama that is also a gritty character study and a broader cautionary tale. Todd Phillips‘ film will be part of an all new banner of DC films that expand the DC universe with new and unique storylines that aren’t a part of the current DC Extended Universe. Joaquin Phoenix will play the title character. The film, which is said to be influenced by The Killing Joke, is currently in production

However, it is making some big news as seven more people have been cast. What’s even more interesting is that these latest castings confirm that a young Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth will be appearing in the film. More on the report, below.

The Flash Starring Ezra Miller

At some point in time the DC Extended Universe looked like the alternative choice to everything Marvel Studios.

Case in point, The Flash, which has been hit with production delays, release date push backs, and directors coming and going.
