Image result for cw crossover

A recent Television Critics Association that includes a number of executive producers from DC’s television division has delivered info on the fall crossover schedule for the CW Network. Network president, Mark Pedowitz shared that Supergirl and Arrow will take place on Monday, November 27th, while Flash and Legends will happen on Tuesday the 28th.

When asked why there would be a date change for Arrow, specific to the crossover, Pedowitz said, “We felt that it would be better and tighter in storytelling,” but also added, “Next year we may go back to four nights.” The event is still going on and a number of EPs have yet to speak on panels, so there still may be more info to come. We’re interested in your thoughts on a 2-day vs 4-day crossover. Let us know!

Dear Suicide Squad 2: Please Stop (Another Director Is Out)

Is there any more apt a name for a movie franchise right now? According to Deadline, Jaume Collet-Serra is going to be directing Dwayne Johnson in Disney’s, The Jungle Cruise, making him unavailable to helm the follow up to Warner Brothers money-making, but not so great bad-guy team-up. Collet-Serra had been seen as the front-runner for the film prior to this announcement.

At this point, they’ve lost Mel Gibson, Ruben Fleischer (Gangster Squad,) and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) and as studios usually like to announce release dates with the signed director, we’ll be waiting on when we should expect this film until they figure this one out. A better idea may be to take after the name of the movie itself, and cut their losses now. Your thoughts?

Warner Bros Is Going To Develop A Red Son Live Action Movie

Well Warner Bros figures since there are different variations of Superman why not use them all in live action movies.

It started with an exchange between Mark Millar and Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts which saw the latter reveal that Warner Bros. had turned down his pitch for a Superman: Red Son movie but Den of Geek claims to have heard from “very, very, very reliable sources” that the studio is looking to bring the Mark Millar penned comic to the big screen at some point in the near future.

Millar has said on Twitter that Warner Bros. has met with at least two filmmakers to discuss the property and provided a statement to the site in which he says, “I’ve got pals at Warner Bros but never discussed it with them. I think they’re just going through their back catalogue of big books and hoping to lure in good directors as opposed to any particular interest in developing Red Son.”

Now this is far from confirmed as happening just yet, but between the comments made by Vogt-Roberts and Millar and the site’s claims that they’ve heard it’s potentially in the works, the signs are looking good.

Superman: Red Son is a very interesting DC Comics property to adapt and isn’t exactly the Superman tale we expected to see on the big screen next. Man of Steel 2 has seemingly been stuck in development hell for a while and it’s not clear right now whether Henry Cavill would play a Russian (and somewhat villainous) version of the character or if the studio would recast him and new versions of Batman and Wonder Woman. It also feels like an R-Rating would suit this property well.

Do you think that Warner Bros needs to tackle this story with them already having the regular versions of the heroes going forward?
