Aquaman

Suicide Squad is out and kicking butt at the box office despite withering reviews. Wonder Woman is in post-production and expected to be one of the big blockbusters of next summer. Justice League is still filming and hopes to pack theaters and reap riches the following November. Next on deck is Aquaman, which has yet to begin filming under the direction of James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7) but is locking up a fine cast headed by star Jason Momoa (who makes his screen debut as DC Comics’ Atlantean warrior king in Justice League).

Now it has been revealed which villain Aquaman will oppose in his first big screen solo adventure: Black Manta, one of Arthur Curry’s greatest foes. More below.

Man of Steel

Three years after it launched DC Comics’ cinematic universe with a $668 million global box office gross, the Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot Man of Steel is finally getting a standalone sequel, as an unnamed source familiar with the developing film at Warner Bros. told Umberto Gonzalez at The Wrap.

Plans for a sequel were changed not long after Man of Steel was released in the summer of 2013 when Snyder announced at that year’s San Diego Comic-Con that the follow-up would pit Superman against Batman. The end result, released this past March, was Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which also featured the first appearance of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and Cyborg.

Ben Affleck as Batman

In addition to his central role as Batman, Ben Affleck is fast becoming one of the critical creative forces behind the camera in the DC Cinematic Universe. He reportedly performed on-set rewrites of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice script and will also be writing the future solo Batman movie (rumored to be titled The Batman) as well as directing the project.

Recently, the multi-talented Affleck earned himself another hat to wear as he has taken on the role of executive producer on next year’s Justice League Part I, in which he is also obviously returning as Batman.

Suicide Squad Margot Robbie

Warner Bros.’ next major DC Comics movie event Suicide Squad, a full-throttle action picture built around the premise of a group of supervillains being recruited by the government to take on dangerous assignments they can also be blamed for in case anything goes horribly wrong, recently entered a round of reshoots in an effort by the studio to add some fun and humor to what was shaping up to be a pretty grim flick.

The studio unveiled a new fast-paced trailer for the film during Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards 2016. You can watch it here below.

‘Man Of Steel 2’ May Be Put On Permanent Hold

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Henry Cavill Wayne Manor

Last week brought news that Mad Max: Fury Road‘s George Miller was rumored to be in talks to direct Man of Steel 2. Of course given how close the filmmaker was to directing a Justice League film back in the in the late 2000s, it was long overdue. And perhaps Fury Road‘s success convinced WB that the director deserved such an honor. However, there was no mention of a sequel during SDCC, and the film isn’t officially scheduled for a release, tentative or otherwise. Still Warner Bros. may be waiting to see how successful Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad are before they confirm anything, which makes sense.

However, there is a new report saying that WB may actually be putting Man of Steel 2 on a permanent hold. More on the story below.

From Fury Road To Metropolis: George Miller Could Direct ‘Man Of Steel 2’

Warner Bros. is proceeding carefully with their plans for a shared cinematic universe based around their DC Comics properties (a lot of which rides on next March’s release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) to compete with the unassailable Marvel Studios. They had originally planned a sequel to 2013’s Superman reboot Man of Steel to kick off the summer of 2018, but the tentatively-titled Man of Steel 2 was taken off the roster as James Wan’s Aquaman moved into position as Warner/DC’s big 2018 summer tentpole release. Meanwhile, a solo Batman reboot starring Ben Affleck has been dated for November of that year.

Unlike Marvel Studios’ blockbuster line-ups, which are usually set in stone but remain subject to the occasional alteration, the DC Comics Shared Cinematic Universe release schedule appears to be in constant flux. Even though Man of Steel 2 is not in active development at Warner Bros. for the moment, that can always change, and fast.

The usually reliable Latino Review is reporting on some interesting new rumors surrounding Warner Brothers’ long-term plans for the expanded cinematic universe it is creating based on DC Comics’ stable of iconic superheroes.

The first is that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck will possibly both direct and star in The Batman, a reboot of the Dark Knight franchise. His Oscar-winning Argo scribe Chris Terrio (who also worked on the scripts for Dawn of Justice and the studio’s Justice League feature — the latter of which will be released in two parts with the first tentatively scheduled for a late 2017 release and the second for the summer of 2019) will write the script for a possible November 2018 theatrical release. This would put the most popular DC character in direct conflict with Marvel Studios’ eagerly awaited Captain Marvel, which will be their first female-headed blockbuster event.

A variant of the Batman character poster has been released that gives us our first clear look at Ben Affleck decked out in the classic cape and cowl of Gotham’s nocturnal vigilante. You can check it out here below.

Well, that was fast. Warner Bros. Pictures has planned to unveil the long-awaited teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on Monday following the premiere of 15 minutes of footage on select IMAX screens across the country. Then the trailer would debut online and
be attached to screenings of Mad Max: Fury Road.

That was the initial plan anyway, but following the unanticipated leak of the trailer yesterday, the studio has apparently (and wisely) decided to grant it an official release a few days ahead of schedule.

You can check it out in glorious high-definition here below.
