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.

Suicide Squad Jared Leto as The Joker header image

It’s no surprise that Jared Leto‘s Joker in Suicide Squad was one of the most interesting takes on the character. It wasn’t like the comic books or the dark and grungy Joker. And that is one thing you have to respect in David Ayer’s film. But it also wasn’t a well-received character.

That being said, he is a part of the DCEU now. And for those who have been dying to know if he would get his own film, well, the studio has answered that question. New reports are saying WB is putting a Joker movie into development with Leto starring and executive producing. More on the story below.

‘Justice League’: Danny Elfman To Compose Score

BAADASSSSS!   |

Danny Elfman

Now that Joss Whedon has taken on the responsibility of completing production on Justice League in time for its release this fall following Zack Snyder‘s departure from the movie due to a death in his family, he has brought on the always amazing Danny Elfman to compose the score for the much-anticipated DC Films blockbuster.

The hiring of Elfman comes just as Whedon is about to commence with the filming of additional scenes in London. Obviously this isn’t Elfman’s first time creating original music for a big-budget superhero movie; his score for Tim Burton’s first Batman in 1989 captured the film’s madness, melancholy, adventure, and Gothic atmosphere perfectly and continues to influence composers to this day. He also created the themes for the first TV series of The Flash, which aired for one season from 1990-1991, and Batman: The Animated Series.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Rumors of the tentatively titled The Batman having “serious script issues” were a cause for concern as it put a direct light on what many were fearing. That WB execs didn’t care about the quality of the script and were just happy that the film can make bank overseas. However, Bret Easton Ellis, who was the source of that rumor, backtracked on his comments and clarified that he was merely reporting on a second-hand rumor.

Moving on to much better news, Joe Manganiello, who will play Deathstroke, is talking a little bit about The Batman, its tone, and working with Ben Affleck. Check out what he had to say below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Ben Affleck‘s standalone film is in pretty good hands, as not only is the actor reprising his role for the solo feature, he is also going to direct it using a script he co-wrote with Geoff Johns, who will also produce alongside Jon Berg. Though we know the major players and that the antagonist would be mercenary-for-hire Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello), the official title of the movie was largely unknown. Until now. During the press junket for The Accountant, Affleck said the title for his standalone Batman film would be The Batman.
