Birds of Prey

Warner Bros. has made some excellent progress when it comes to adding diversity in their DC films. They were among the first to have a solo female superhero film to be directed by a female director. And now they’ve taken another huge step with Birds Of Prey, an all-female DC superhero ensemble. Directed by Cathy Yan, the film will see Margot Robbie reprising her DCEU role as Harley Quinn, who will be joined by DC characters Black Canary, Huntress, Cassandra Cain, and Renee Montoya in a fight to defend Gotham City against one of Batman’s most notable villains, Black Mask.

While Robbie is the only confirmed actress to board the film, a new report says Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Justina Machado,, and more are being considered for various roles. More on the story here below.

Black Mask

Batman may have a lot of villains in his rogue gallery, but many of those A-list villains have appeared as different versions in all of the known film franchises. That being said, the current DCEU is building around the Batman family, which would, in turn, allow it to use other Batman villains that may not appear in the Caped Crusader’s films. Now, new reports confirm that Roman Sionis, aka Black Mask, will be the main villain of the Birds Of Prey film that is currently under development with Warner Bros. and DC Films. More on the story below.

The quality of the video game gameplaying experience continues to progress at an impressive rate. More and more games are weaving a cinematic feel that gives the player a more fulfilling and entertaining play. But it’s not the same for films based on video games. Most, if not all, are dead on arrival. The frustrating part of all of it is that these films take away the interactive experience and leaves them with something they could have enjoyed more at home.

Tomb Raider is a lot like that. On certain levels, it is one of the most physically demanding roles for Alicia Vikander, who takes up the title role. On others, it is yet another film adaptation of a video game franchise that repeats the same mistakes of its predecessors by failing to engage its audience with at least a decent story and relies too much on the video game elements to keep things interesting. Check out my full review here below.

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.
