It Seems The Bat-Fleck Is No Longer The Batman

batmanaffleck_new

“Will he, wont he?” That has been a phrase that has been tossed around to both Warner Bros. as well as DC Entertainment representatives for nearly a year when it comes to the speculation of whether Ben Aflleck would once again don the cape and cowl for Matt Reeves The Batman film.

Now it seems that we may have that answer and to some it will be praised and to others they will be upset. That answer is seemingly that he wont, this is after the Trade’s report that Matt Reeves first script draft of his upcoming DCEU film will focus on a younger Batman thus taking Aflleck out of the role.

Reportedly Reeves turned in the draft of the first act around Memorial Day weekend. Now that is in no way a complete film and there is still a LONG way to go for a completed script. But the focus within is set to be on a younger version of the Caped Crusader. It’s been said that Affleck is highly unlikely to return at this point to the franchise.

Are you excited about this news? Are you upset? Is this the direction you want to see them go in with this film. Let us know your thoughts.

Have We Just Been Told The Official Title Of “Wonder Woman 2”

wonder-woman-1-1475246469

It seems as if thanks to the power of Twitter we have the OFFICIAL title for the sequel to the blockbuster hit Wonder Woman.

Both director Patty Jenkins and Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot both took to Twitter today to not only give us what seems like a confirmation of the follow-up films title but also the return of a very important character in Wonder Woman’s life.

Now in both of the tweets we see “Wonder Woman 1984” and the hashtag #WW84, so it is pretty safe to assume that “Wonder Woman 1984” will be the name of the film. As we already know that the film is set to take place in the 1980s.

But the most peculiar and HIGHLY QUESTIONABLE thing is in Patty Jenkins tweet showing the return of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. the biggest question that is and should be asked with that is “HOW?!?!?!”. If you remember in the first film he sacrificed himself during Wonder Woman’s final fight with Ares.  He blows himself up in an airplane carrying bombs and poison. Now if you tell me that at that LAST moment a Green Lantern returned to pull him out the aircraft or that in this instance Diana is just hallucinating then I think it will all play out. If not it’s pretty much a safe bet that we will see both Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot being questioned in the form of that of Ricky Ricardo, “You got some ‘splaning to do.”

Let us know your thoughts, are you intrigued to now know the potential title of the movie and what are your thoughts on the “return” of Steve Trevor.

KF_lr_57845fd140a5c6.45575171

It seems as if everybody’s hopes of having Wally West back as part of Team Flash on a regular basis have been brought down. Keiynan Lonsdale who played Kid Flash will not be returning as a series regular to The Flash nor will he be one of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow either.

But there is no need to be fully upset because he is not leaving the show altogether he will be in the season 5 premiere of The Flash but what happens after that is yet to be seen.

Ant-Man_and_the_Wasp_logo

New posters from the upcoming Marvel Studios, Ant-Man and The Wasp have been released and for the first time we are seeing what Michelle Pfeiffer looks like in her role of Janet Van Dyne the mother to Hope Van Dyne “the Wasp” played by Evangeline Lily.

In the look of Michelle Pfeiffer it should be noted that she seemingly has on a new suit, one that is more streamlined like the newer versions both Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne are wearing. Also Janet’s costume seems to have some green in it and not the same as the character was seen to have worn in the 1st Ant-Man film. Does this mean she joins the team full-time and does she take on a new moniker now that her daughter is The Wasp.

Let us know what you think about these new posters and what do you think about the look of Janet Van Dyne.

Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6,2018

The “Suicide Squad” Joker Is Getting His Own Movie

Jared Leto Joker

With the way everything else is happening in the DCEU this clearly seemed like the next step right? Well nonetheless The Joker from Suicide Squad will be getting his own film.

Warner Bros is looking to make a standalone of this version of the character that debuted in the 2016 Suicide Squad film. This film is set to have Jared Leto who portrayed the role to star and exec produce an untitled standalone film. This is set to pave the way for more future movies branching from off from Suicide Squad.

There currently is not a plot or any details for the film but the belief is that Warner Bros wants to further expand on  the “Suicide Squad” world with the different properties that lie within. It has already been announced that Margot Robbie’who portrayed Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad is getting her own film with Birds of Prey. 

Now this adds on to the “Joker” film catalog. As an origin film is on the way from Todd Phillips. Now this film is not set to be included within the current DCEU and the reason is to allow multiple actors as well as versions of characters to exist without any overlap. In that version Joaquin Phoenix has been tapped to play the clown prince of crime.

Let us know your thoughts on this. Are you excited? Are you looking forward to seeing a more expanded version than what we saw in the Suicide Squad film?
