Warner Bros Is Possibly Going To Recast DCEU’s Iris West

IMG_20171127_165634

In today’s “Of course Warner Bros Is making a questionable decision” news. Before she even has a chance to debut in the DCEU it seems as if Kiersey Clemons may be looking for a new role.

So reports are beginning to surface suggesting that Warner Bros. is looking to recast the role of Iris West ahead of its seemingly problematic The Flash: Flashpoint film.

Just in case you may have forgotten because of course you haven’t seen her, Actress Kiersey Clemons WAS set to make her debut as Iris West in this year’s Justice League ahead of her appearance in Flashpoint.  Her cameo in the film was ultimately cut, but the sequence did manage to leak online shortly after Justice League hit theaters.

Oh yeah in case you needed another reminder of how much catastrophe is involved with this project there STILL is no director attached to Flashpoint. Also the initial future of this film rested on the overall success of Justice League so who knows what is really going to happen with this film.

Here is where you insert a Kanye shrug.

Test Screenings of Justice League Are Garnering Positive Reviews

As of this post we are 9 days away from DC’s Mightiest Heroes converge on the big screen. Now there are many fans both die-hard and casual who are concerned about how this film will turn out. Critics destroyed Batman V Superman, Suicide Squad was constantly asked how did all that could go wrong, actually go wrong with such an incredible ensemble cast.

Then there was the emergence of Wonder Woman which took the world by storm and is still garnering both repeat and new viewers.  So with Justice League the question came caan Warner Bros and DC maintain that momentum.

Well we may have an answer to that. With Warner Bros. being known to test screen their films, they have decided to present it to audiences with no knowledge of comic books and comic backstories, which is pretty much what they did with Wonder Woman before it premiered.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the most recent test screening to Justice League has been seen with audience scores similar to what Wonder Woman earned back in May of this year before it’s debut.

WSJ notes that Justice League is on track for a domestic opening over $100M -which if it’s is getting the same praise as Wonder Woman it’s totally possible.

What do you think? Do you agree it has the potential to hit the $100million mark opening weekends

Ben Affleck All But Confirms He Won’t Stay On As Batman

We here at the Trusty Sidekick have been claiming for a while now that Ben Affleck would never make it to Matt Reeves solo Batman movies as the lead and this little nugget all but confirms it. In a press junket for Justice League, dropping next Friday, Affleck is asked how many times he’s played Batman and how many times we should expect to see him in the cape and cowl. We have the video set to start with the question – and…

Not even 5 times? With Justice League being number 4? That means, other than a likely pop up in another character’s movie (I’m guessing Flashpoint – if it happens,) Affleck and Reeves will never end up on set together. This obviously becomes more disappointing if Justice League does well and sets the DCEU on the right track as far as films go, and of course further grows my desire to fight Ben in the streets. I will be ranting about this next week on the podcast, but make sure you find our current episode, here!

Black Adam in the “Suicide Squad”?

landscape-1494926449-the-rock-black-adam

For the past week  there has been so much talk about New Line Cinema & DC’S “SHAZAM!”. From who will play the titular character and his youthful counterpart to who will potentially be his nemesis. But the question has constantly come up about SHAZAM’s greatest opponent Black Adam & where would he fit in with the film.

Well we all know that Dwayne Johnson is set to be Black Adam in an upcoming solo film that does not include the aforementioned SHAZAM. But now we may be finding out where he is making his debut.

Now according to an exclusive from The Wrap, the plot of Suicide Squad 2 will revolve around “members of Suicide Squad [who are] tasked with tracking down a weapon of mass destruction.” That weapon is apparenty…. you guessed it …..or maybe you didn’t Black Adam.

So this shouldn’t come a too much of a shock. Because Johnson himself teased a surprise introduction for the villain earlier this year, when he told Fandango: “We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam that I can’t reveal, in terms of where we will see Black Adam being introduced.” Granted he didn’t say much but he kinda told us it would be in another movie before his own solo film.

Even though Suicide Squad 2, doesn’t have a set release date yet it’s expected to begin early 2018.
Are you pumped up for this potential cameo or would just rather see Black Adam in SHAZAM?

Prepare All The Steroids – Zachary Levi Is Playing Shazam

In what may be the start of a series of bad ideas, Warner Brothers has tapped Zachary Levi, best known from his run on NBC’s Chuck, to be Shazam. Not a lot of details have been released so far, but Levi is going to need to put on a little weight to play the hero who is a combination of 6 great gods (Solomon, Hercules, Achilles, Zeus, Atlas and Mercury.)

The movie is directed by David Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation) and will come in 2019, giving Levi plenty of time to add a few pounds.
