Shazam Has A Release Date

The very intriguing upcoming DC film, Shazam, starring Zach Levi of Chuck fame, looks like it’s found it’s launching pad.

As previously mentioned on the site, David Sandberg will be directing, and now we have confirmed that the movie’s April 5, 2019 release date will be nestled nicely right between Marvel’s Captain Marvel which comes out in March, and Avengers 4, which drops in May.

For DC’s sake, they will hopefully ride both a successful Aquaman at the end of 2018 and a well-performing Captain Marvel to continued interest in heroes called that at some point, that gets them a lot of ticket sales. Tell us how you think it will do!

Gambit Flips The Fox Schedule

In what has surely become an even bigger catastrophe than previously expected, Gambit losing its director, Gore Verbinski has now created additional problems for the rest of the upcoming Fox mutant universe.

With no director, Gambit is leaving it’s Feb 14, 2019 date, paving the way for probably another 50 Shades sequel, and Deadpool is going to slide up from June 1st to May 18th, of this year. Gambit will fall four months back (for now,) to June 7th.

Here’s where it gets ridiculous: the much anticipated New Mutants film, originally expected to arrive on April 13 of this year all the way to February 22 of 2019! The obvious reason is that when it comes to showing year over year, having both New Mutants and Deadpool drop this year and only the Gambit disaster next year would cost everyone their jobs. This way, New Mutants will cushion the failure that follows and Deadpool can be the only kid on the sandbox this year (well, with Cable and Domino. And Negasonic – oh boy they are in trouble!)

Is Fox doomed? Should they cut their Gambit losses or is there hope? Tell us what you think!

Could Comedic Icon be heading to the DCEU

So more and more is this unstable universe ever potentially expanding. Now I know that it comes off as if that we here at The Trusty Sidekick are just anti-DC, in which we are not. We want for them to put out the best possible product of the use of iconic characters.

Well recently it was noticed that Monty Python star John Cleese started following Ben Affleck and Zack Snyder on Twitter. He was also followed by the Batman v Superman UK Twitter account and set photographer Clay Enos. This lead fans to believe that Cleese may have a role in Justice League, and now, more fuel has been added to the fire.

Now its popped up that a tweet from Cleese from last week where he posted a picture of himself getting ready for a live event in his dressing room, but included in front of him was a stack of comic books!

Look at the photo in and you’ll see that Cleese has “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns”, “Justice League: Origin”, and “Batman Noir: Black Mirror”.

While this doesn’t 100% confirm anything, it certainly adds fuel to the rumors that Cleese has a role in the DC Extended Universe. Let us know what you think and who could he possibly be.
