Wonder Woman 1984 Is a Sequel, How Is This Even a Question?

We haven’t heard much about Wonder Woman 1984 since it wrapped production last December. To be fair, the release date was pushed back from November 1, 2019 to June 5, 2020, so we’ve got a lot of time to go still. What we do know about the project is it will feature Gal Gadot once again as Diana/Wonder Woman, a returning Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as Barbara Minerva (aka Cheetah), and Pedro Pascal as a yet-to-be-revealed character (my best guesses are Maxwell Lord or Glorious Godfrey).

The future of James Gunn’s Suicide Squad just keeps getting more and more interesting. After reports that Margot Robbie might be reprising her role as Harley Quinn in the film—despite the fact that she’s got a perfectly solid new jumping-off point in Birds of Prey—and that Will Smith would not be reprising his role as Deadshot, Warner Bros. has made an interesting announcement.

Batman Makes a Soft Cameo in the Latest Shazam! Trailer

It’s a very interesting time for Batman in Warner Bros. and DC’s big-budget, live-action movies. Batfleck is no more, and as it stands now, the upcoming Batman solo movie has yet to find its titular hero, but that doesn’t mean the DCEU doesn’t already have another Dark Knight waiting in the wings.

How Shazam Will Use Childlike Wonder to Set It Apart From the Superhero Pack

If you want to know how Shazam is going to be different from the DC Entertainment films that preceded it, you need only reference two scenes: One in which the hero fights the bad guy in a toy store filled with DC superhero merch, and another where a big fight takes place at a festive winter carnival, complete with a giant Ferris wheel and dozens of games. Not your typical DC movie. Not your typical superhero movie, full stop. But that’s Shazam. Read More >>

James Wan Will Only Venture Into Aquaman’s Sequel Depths if the Script Is a Pearl

By the end of the weekend, James Wan’s Aquaman will have become the most financially successful superhero movie Warner Brothers and DC have ever produced together—a title previously held by The Dark Knight. That’d be a huge accomplishment for any filmmaker, but for Wan in particular given the studio’s recent pivot to focusing on director-driven projects. Read More >>
