The Flash Movie Reported To Introduce Flashpoint - San Diego Comic-Con 2017

1 hour ago

Today, at the San Diego Comic-con, several logos were shown which would give the audience a general direction of the DC films. Much to the crowd's surprise, when The Flash came up it displayed a very well known (to comic readers) image of the Flashpoint logo. This has several ramifications, including the future of the Batman character.

If you do not know, in the comic, the animated film, or the CW version of Flashpoint; The Flash basically against his own moral objections went back into time and saved his mother from being killed by his arch-nemesis, the Reverse-Flash. Of course, this was actually The Reverse-Flash's plan all along, as he is a master of manipulation, and it set the future into a whole new setting, mainly where Barry Allen (The Flash) did not have powers.

Luckily, after trials and tribulations, Barry was able to get Batman's help, but this »

Warner Bros. Shows Off Logos For Upcoming DC Films…Which Movies Are Still On The Way?

1 hour ago

The DC Extended Universe has been a tough beast to follow. A couple years back, they released a multi-film slate that extended through around 2020. It seemed overly ambitious at the time, and it seems like that may have indeed been the case. They counted their eggs before they hatched, and after seeing how these films performed, were faced with the reality that they would need to change course after the first few films. It became clear that after Justice League, things would be changing.

The studio has spent the past year developing several projects — these included sequels and spinoffs of successful films, and standalones for superheroes that have yet to see the light of day on the big screen. But given that we have no idea what the current status is of their slate, how many of these movies are actually set to actually hit the big screen?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi New Promotional Image Shows Off New Character

2 hours ago

The countdown to the second installment of LucasFilm’s new Star Wars trilogy continues. The Last Jedi will be in theaters in just a few short months. Lucasfilm, as secretive as always has not been forthcoming with many details. While The Last Jedi has no official presence at Sdcc we do have a new promotional image. A close up shot of Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley), and one of the better looks at the new character Rose, who is played by Kelly Marie Tran.

In the photo, Finn can be seen wearing the jacket of Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron, who curiously is not featured in the photo. Rey adorns a smoky gray outfit and is holding Luke’s old lightsaber, positioned in a fighting stance. Kelly Marie Tran’s character, Rose, is also shown and is thought to be a maintenance worker in the resistance.

Justice League Sdcc Trailer Shows A Post-Superman World

2 hours ago

Today in Hall H, Warner Bros. presented a new, extensive four-minute sneak peek of their upcoming film Justice League to a crazy huge audience (seriously, hundreds of attendees with wristbands were turned away). Luckily for everyone else, they also took to YouTube to post the trailer for all to see.

Justice League has been an interesting film to follow. Some fans have been unconvinced of its quality. Since the release of Batman v Superman, negative rumors have followed the production. From rumors of extensive reshoots to the departure of director Zack Snyder, it's a film that has seemingly faced every obstacle in the book.

We've seen a trailer for the film already, but this new look gives us our longest look at the movie yet, and we have to say, it looks like a good time. Of course, it's hard to tell just from »

Ben Affleck Addresses Batman Concerns: ‘I Am The Luckiest Guy In The World’

3 hours ago

Actor Ben Affleck certainly seems to be taking the world for a ride. For the longest time, he was rumored to be helming a standalone Batman film, and when it was finally officially announced, he only seemed to distance himself even further. All of a sudden, on the heels of the less than stellar reception of Batman v Superman, he seemed to be backpedaling. 

Earlier this year, he stepped down as director of The Batman, and Matt Reeves took his place. But Affleck was still officially on board as Batman and Bruce Wayne. Earlier this week, we reported on a new rumor that Affleck was looking for a way out of the universe, and that DC was planning a way to go forward with The Batman without him.

Why Spielberg Joined Ready Player One, And Why It’s So Complex

3 hours ago

It’s no easy feat making a movie, as evidenced by the countless terrible films out there. While it’s easy to criticize everything under the sun, the reality is that the process is like threading a needle, and there are countless places for things to go wrong. When adapting a known property, like Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One, that problem is amplified, as you then also have to worry about a fanbase’s reaction to said property.

Ready Player One has yet another layer of complications added to that. Not only is the plot incredibly dense, but it’s packed with references to old-school pop culture. During the Warner Bros. Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, screenwriter Zak Penn expressed how difficult it was to adapt such material for the flick.

“This was definitely the most complex movie I’ve ever worked on. There’s so much material. »

Wonder Woman 2 Script Currently Being Written By Geoff Johns

4 hours ago

It’s no secret that Wonder Woman was a huge success for Warner Bros. Surprisingly enough, the studio seemed ill-prepared for how much of a success it would be, and didn’t have a script or story ready to go for the sequel. So unprepared were they that they didn’t even get Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins on board for the sequel.

When last we heard, Jenkins and DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns were hard at work at writing the treatment for the flick, and ahead of the San Diego Comic-Con panel, Johns revealed that they had moved forward to the next stage.

Speaking with Yahoo! Movies, he said:

“I’m working right now on the Wonder Woman 2 script. I just started.”

As of right now, there is no release date for Wonder Woman 2, but Warner Bros. recently locked down two mystery movie dates for 2020, so it’s »

New Justice League Poster Looks Like An Alex Ross Painting

4 hours ago

Today is a big day for Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Universe. After a bit of a mixed year for them (Wonder Woman was a huge success, but behind-the-scenes drama seems to be plaguing their productions), they could use a successful Hall H panel to show that they have more going on than another solid Wonder Woman movie.

While it remains to be seen whether or not they’ll be able to deliver, the official Justice League Twitter account posted a new poster that some comic book fans may appreciate.

Check it out below:

On a surface level, it may look a bit odd, but some fans may note that it resembles an Alex Ross painting. With it’s lighting, and the positioning of their faces, they very much look like the look of the heroes you’d see in his lineup. Admittedly, it’s not a poster that »

DC Extended Universe: Did Jason Momoa Tease A Big Announcement From Warner Bros?

5 hours ago

The DC Extended Universe didn’t exactly start off on the right foot — and no, I’m not talking about Man of Steel or Batman v Superman. I’m talking about Green Lantern. In the midst of Marvel’s growing Cinematic Universe, Green Lantern hit theaters, and it seemed as though Warner Bros. was interested in establishing their own world they could similarly exploit. But we now know that wouldn’t end up being the case.

Green Lantern was a total failure on every level, and the film garnered so much hate that it set things back a bit for their world. Now, it’s been unclear just how long the studio plans on waiting until they introduce an actual Green Lantern character. A couple years back, when announcing their slate, they had Green Lantern Corps on the list, but being such a key member of the Justice League, it »

Spawn Movie Getting Produced By Blumhouse

6 hours ago

You know it’s been about six months or so when you start hearing Spawn news. Every six months for the past few years, comic book artist Todd McFarlane announces some progress has been made in the long in-development Spawn film. 

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con we got yet another update from McFarlane via a Facebook update. While it’d be easy to dismiss this yet again, it sounds like the project may finally be making some Real progress. In the update, not only will he be directing the flick, but that Jason Blum of Blumhouse productions would be producing it.

While this is still a far cry from actually seeing the movie in theaters, it’s certainly a step in the right direction. I’m especially excited by Blumhouse’s involvement. Over the past few years, they’ve done an amazing job creating low budget high concept horror flicks, »

Harley Quinn vs. The Joker Film In Development At Warner Bros.

7 hours ago

Warner Bros. certainly seems to be working towards capitalizing on the success of Harley Quinn. While Suicide Squad may have been received negatively by critics, there’s no denying two things: the film made some real cash money, and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was a big hit with fans. Warner Bros. has already started development on two films that may further utilize her.

The first Harley Quinn-led film is Gotham City Sirens, and the second is Suicide Squad 2 (we still don’t know for sure if Harley will be in it). It sounds like Warner Bros. is aiming for a trifecta of villain-led films. According to a new report from Screen Rant, they are hard at work at a Harley Quinn vs. the Joker film. As of right now, that’s supposedly only the working title, and there are no plot details.

It’s very possible that Warner Bros. »

Netflix’s Bright Trailer: Humans, Orcs, Elves…Everyone’s Just Trying To Get Along

8 hours ago

Netflix may be a bit of a juggernaut in today’s Golden Age of television, but they’re anything but on the film front. Earlier this year, audiences booed Okja at the Cannes Film Festival — not because it was bad, mind you, but because mere pretentiousness. In short, they’re up against a lot of film snobs stuck in their ways, so it’ll be more of an uphill battle for them to achieve the same kind of success.

This year, they have a few major releases. Already on the streaming on the service are War Machine and Okja, and later this year will see two more films released. The first major one is Death Note, a horror/thriller from The Guest director Adam Wingard. However, while that may be an anticipated film for manga fans, director David Ayer’s new film, Bright, is definitely the biggest one coming in »

The Murder Machine

Surprise Iron Fist Announcement During The Defenders Sdcc Panel

15 hours ago

Marvel is known for having surprises during their H Hall panels at Sdcc and this year has been no exception.  At the Defenders panel Jeph Loeb made the announcement that Iron Fist would be getting a second season shortly after the cast had come onto stage.  This announcement came to news for everyone including the cast members.  While there was a roar from the crowd the person who was the most excited was Finn Jones himself.  You could tell that he didn't know this news before the panel because the smile and celebration on his face was purely authentic.  

While this announcement was new at the panel, it was an announcement that should've been suspected.  Even though the first season of Iron Fist wasn't critically well received, it still drew a lot of subscribers to watch most of the season.  With the success of all the other shows we can »

Punisher Teaser Shows Frank Castle Still In A Dark Place - Sdcc

17 hours ago

Jeph Loeb promised there would be surprises during the Marvel Defenders panel, and he wasn't wrong.  During a short speech about the history of Marvel Television and a surprise award presented to Jeph, Jon Bernthal causally walked onto stage without any introduction and gave Jeph a big hug.  John had made it halfway down the stage before the crowd realized it was him.  After a little banter between the two Jon introduced a short clip for the crowd.  

The teaser showed a compilation of Castle hunting down different individual and killing them in a different way.  The opening shot we get is Castle sitting in on a bed with a guitar playing a tune.  The shot flashes back and for to him sitting by himself and a flashback with himself teaching his daughter how to play guitar.  Then quick shots of Frank around the room in despair shows us that »

Plastic Man Returns With DC Comic's New Team The Terrifics - Sdcc 2017

18 hours ago

DC Comics

With only a few weeks away from DC's release of Dark Days: Metal #1, we today at San Diego Comic-Con we got some information about a team that is going to spin off into DC's post Dark Days: Metal line called Dark Matter

Thanks to Newsarama we learned that Jeff Lemire will be returning to DC Comics and alongside artist Ivan Reis to debut a new superhero team or family called The Terrifics. The team will consist of Mr. Terrific, Metamorpho, Phantom Girl and Plastic Man. The image that features the team is displayed on one of the walls at the DC Comics booth and the inclusion of Plastic Man had raised a lot of eyebrows with comic book fans.

Patrick O'Brian or Plastic Man had been absent from the DC universe for a while now only to show up again frozen in a sphere that resembled »

Game Of Thrones: Is Melisandre A Targaryen? - San Diego Comic-Con 2017

21 July 2017 3:30 PM, PDT

In the Game of Thrones press conference, a scene was revealed today that shows Daenerys Targaryen (Dany) meet up with Melisandre. Now keep in mind, Hodor (actor Kristian Nairn) was asking most of these scripted questions, and the roar was so loud we could barely get any true meaning, but the scene shows Melisandre walking in to greet Dany, with little regard.

Let us examine a few things, without spoiling any backstories written.

Targaryens are supposedly immune to fire, although we have only seen one such person claim this ability. This of course would be Dany. Her brother may have been immune, but molten gold dumped on one's head would pretty much kill anyone.

We know after the first episode of last year that Melisandre is ancient, and that only her necklace keeps her, and her -- ahem -- body looking young. So why would she go to Dany? Melisandre's »
