Ben Affleck As Batman With Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder made a few visually stunning comic book film adaptations before he was brought in to helm the DC Extended Universe. Once there, he brought a darker and more brooding tone to the DCEU, which was a stark contrast to the lighter and funnier Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though this darker superhero universe had its fan base, it never could achieve the same level of success as the MCU. And it didn’t help that there were those who were opposed to Snyder’s interpretation of these beloved characters, many of whom went against their codes or just against the source material in general.

Case in point, Batman. Then played by Ben Affleck, the DCEU’s version saw Batman kill. Something of which he has done before, whether that was freely, inadvertently, or something that could be debated. But the Dark Knight is perhaps known for his no kill policy. It is a policy that Snyder doesn’t care about. In fact, he has one thing to say to you if you don’t like his Batman killing: “Wake the fuck up.” More on the report below.

The Flash Starring Ezra Miller

Just when things were looking good for Warner Bros. DCEU after the release of Wonder Woman and Aquaman, The Flash brings back memories of how the shared universe continues to struggle. In the latest bit of news, Ezra Miller reportedly seems to be very unhappy with the direction that the speedster is heading towards in the standalone film and is now working with DC comics writer Grant Morrison on a brand new script that will compete against the one being written by directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. And this news comes at a time when Miller’s contract to play as Barry Allen expires this coming May. More on the report here below.

The Dark Tower

It looks like Deadshot will be coming back for Suicide Squad 2, which is now going by the title The Suicide Squad. Just not the Deadshot you know. Will Smith, who was the first to play Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot, was forced to exit the role because of scheduling conflicts. But it didn’t take too long for Warner Bros. to find his replacement. According to new reports, the studio is eyeing Idris Elba to play the role of the sharp shooting assassin.

Not only that, Warner Bros. is “barreling towards the casting process,” as the studio is loving what screenwriter James Gunn has turned in. More on the report below.

Things for Warner Bros.’ DCEU are looking a lot brighter. Following the successes of films like Wonder Woman and Aquaman, the studio is looking to release more character-driven films rather than episodic pieces that lead up to a larger ensemble effort. It’s an approach they likely should have taken right from the start instead of trying to mimic Marvel’s highly successfully cinematic universe. As such, WB will continue forward with these standalone efforts.

Warner Bros. chief executive Kevin Tsujihara confirmed that this will be the studios’ approach to DCEU films for the foreseeable future. More on the report here below.

Will Smith Exits ‘Suicide Squad 2’ Due To Scheduling Conflicts

Will Smith

Sorry folks, it looks like you won’t be seeing Floyd Lawton take another contract in Suicide Squad 2. Will Smith, who introduced us to the cinematic version of the character, won’t be coming back. While the script was one of the weakest parts of the first film, Deadshot himself was one of the best parts of the film.

Sure, we’ve seen some key actors stay and others leave before. But Smith is not leaving for the reasons that Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill (…maybe) exited. Scheduling conflicts contributed to this parting of ways. More on the report below.

Aquaman The Trench Spinoff

A good DCEU film is hard to come by, especially when it is based on one of the cheesiest and easily mocked DC heroes. But James Wan was able to pull off the impossible with Aquaman. Not only is it a hit with critics and audiences, but it was more than enough of a box office success for it to spawn a developing spinoff.

New reports confirm that an Aquaman spinoff titled The Trench is being developed based on the fanged amphibious creatures of the same name which pursued Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard) towards the deepest and darkest part of the ocean. More on this below.

Kevin Smith Reveals Zack Snyder Had Plans For A ‘Justice League’ Trilogy

Justice League

Zack Snyder’s true vision for Justice League never came to fruition. Designed as a two-part film, Justice League would be the first time that DC heroes banded together to fight off cosmic threats. Unfortunately, lackluster films that came before it forced the two parts to become one part. Not only that, but Snyder left the project after principal photography, leaving Joss Whedon to take care of the post-production work. But with all of the last-minute reshoots and mustache gate, the film ended up being a major disappointment. Which is probably why many asked to see a Snyder cut well after it failed to meet expectations.

But never let it be said that Snyder did not have a bold vision for the DCEU. In fact, what was rumored to be a two-part film in the very beginning was actually a trilogy. At least, according to Kevin Smith. More on this below.

Batman v Superman Ben Affleck Bat Signal

Batman may be known as “The World’s Greatest Detective,” but the cinematic iterations of the character have failed to live up to that moniker. However, The Batman director Matt Reeves wants to change all of that by giving us “a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale.”

Though this project has been in development for a long time, these new details prove that they are taking their time to shape the upcoming film into something worth waiting for. More on the report below.

James Gunn

After being fired as the director of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for highly controversial tweets that were made over a decade ago, James Gunn made a significant return to superhero movies by being hired by Warner Bros. to write the script for DC’s Suicide Squad 2 this past October.

The script he was writing wouldn’t be considered a true sequel but rather a soft relaunch of the franchise, so the title has been changed to The Suicide Squad. Now, he’s making the move to direct the film as well. More on the report below.
