Lobo

It was only a matter of time before Michael Bay even considered jumping aboard another blockbuster film. It’s practically his bread and butter. But after directing five Transformers films and a few gritty ones in between, it looks like Bay is looking to direct a superhero film. Well, at least one that fits his sense of direction. According to new reports, Bay is in talks to direct an adaptation of Lobo, about a grungy space bounty hunter who has crossed paths with some of DC’s most notable intergalactic heroes and villains. More on the story below.

Warner Bros. Hires Walter Hamada To Save DC Films

Justice League

The DCEU ended the year on a very sour note. Despite Wonder Woman being a critical and commercial hit, grossing $821.8 million worldwide, the film was followed up by Justice League, an all-star DC superhero film that failed to meet box office expectations and was panned by a majority of critics. The latter only grossed a meager $651 million. And as a result of the film’s poor performance, and reports of the film proving to be a huge financial loss, the studio was forced to go through some major restructuring.

Now we are beginning to see those moves starting with the hiring of Walter Hamada, one of the executives behind the massively successful The Conjuring horror movies made by Warner Bros.’ New Line division. More on the story below.

Warner Bros. Revamping DC Movie Creative Forces After ‘Justice League’ Underperforms

Justice League

It was pretty inevitable that Warner Bros. would be making an executive decision in the wake of Justice League‘s lackluster box office performance. The numbers don’t lie — the film won’t be making a profit. At least not anytime soon. Not with the millions that went into those reshoots and marketing. That being said, the studio had to do something in order to right the ship, which by all accounts, was sinking, and sinking fast.

And that is exactly what they are doing. In a major shakeup, WB is removing key figures from their current positions and is considering merging DC movies into the studio’s main film production arm. More on the story here below.

Geek Peek: First Look At ‘Aquaman’ Will Make You Want To Hit The Gym

Aquaman title card image header

One of the biggest problems for Justice League was introducing three new heroes to the DC superhero universe. This did not give much room for any narrative or exposition as the ensemble film had to squeeze out time to give some origin stories to The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg. However, all will be getting standalone origin stories of their own. At least we hope. But one that is for certain is Aquaman.

The film will see Jason Momoa reprise his role as Arthur Curry, the half-man half-Atlantean who is trying to figure out his place on land and in the ocean. Now we have our first look at the upcoming superhero film, which is being directed by James Wan (The Conjuring). Check out the first look here below.

WB Projected To Lose Up To $100 Million On ‘Justice League’

Justice League

Justice League‘s disappointing turn out at the box office last weekend could give way to a huge financial blow to Warner Bros. Normally, a film that grossed $94 million would be a cause for celebration. But when you factor in the cost of production and promotional material, a low $94 million is not even enough to cover a fraction of the overall film. In fact, Justice League is already lined up to becoming the lowest grossing DCEU film since the universe was launched back in 2013.

These low numbers could have a negative impact on the future of the DCEU has a whole. More on the story below.

Justice League Banner

Justice League
Director: Zack Snyder
Screenwriter: Chris Terrio, Joss Whedon
Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, Ciarán Hinds
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 120
Release Date: November 22, 2017

It’s easy to go into watching Justice League with very low expectations considering how the entire DCEU is filled with bad to god-awful films, with the exception of Wonder Woman. That film was a huge step forward in the right direction for the superhero universe, as it used themes of hope and optimism to do some course correction.

But with Justice League looking like it did in the trailers, one would think that the film would be a step back. However, that isn’t the case. While it is flawed, Justice League has a lighter tone, is funnier, and isn’t as bleak as some of its predecessors. That being said, it is a DCEU film. But at least it is a DCEU film that takes another step in the right direction. Check out my full review below.

Here We Go Again, Ben Affleck Considering A Graceful Departure From Playing Batman

Batman v Superman Ben Affleck Bat Signal

So the ongoing saga of whether or not Ben Affleck will continue to play Batman after Justice League continues. This has been pretty much a thing since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice failed to live up to expectations. Affleck has gone on record saying he doesn’t want to play as Batman anymore, only to pull a 180 just days – sometimes hours later – and say he is committed to the role for the foreseeable future. The actor has played The Batman three times so far: once in Batman v Superman, another in Suicide Squad, and a third coming up in this week’s Justice League.

But it appears that Affleck has grown tired of the superhero world and is setting his sights on hanging up the cape for good. However, unlike previous attempts to exit the DCEU, the actor is now reportedly looking for a “graceful and cool way to segue out of it.” More on the story below.

Deathstroke

When Ben Affleck teased that Joe Manganiello would be playing Deathstroke in The Batman, fans were elated. The most deadly assassin in DC comics would finally make a cinematic appearance. But as we all know, The Batman fell apart. The film then found new hope when War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves took over as director. However, this also meant that the film would be getting a whole new script. Which put Manganiello’s role as Deathstroke into question. The actor, himself, was even unsure if he would appear in the film.

Now there are reports that Gareth Evans (The Raid and The Raid 2) could direct a standalone film based on the assassin tentatively titled Deathstroke. However, there is still no word yet if Manganiello will play the role. More on the story below.

And to make sure it stays that way, Warner Bros. will be releasing one more trailer this Sunday. Plus there are a few new character posters.
