Brandon Molale has wanted the role for years

Is Benedict Cumberbatch going to play Martial Manhunter or a villain in BvSOJ?

They're not going to have both Martian Manhunter and Cyborg in the Justice League, and Cyborg has already been cast.

I could see Cumberbatch as Brainiac. He plays smart guys well. (Khan in Star Trek and Sherlock Holmes.)

re: Future DC Extended Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

I think the notions put forward by Alan Moore translate very well to what the movie companies are doing with their licenses. Marvel are building a mythology and ensuring that threads between characters link successfully and that this continues throughout their future productions. DC/WB seems to be handling this less well. They are rebooting Batman for the third time in 17 years and Superman for the second time in less than 10 years. I think the more characters are rebooted, repeated or rehashed the less inclined audiences are to embrace them. We see this with a character like Spiderman. I hope DC has a more solid game plan going forward, but i think throwing all their main characters into the boiling pot at the same time is not the best of first steps.

Superman hasn't been rebooted twice. We had Donner's Superman and then Man of Steel. That's one reboot. Superman Returns wasn't a reboot. It was in the Donner continuity.

Batman has been rebooted twice, not three times. Burton/Schumacher to Nolan to Man of Steel is two reboots.

Also, using Spider-Man as an example of people hating reboots is a poor choice. People just hate bad movies period, and other than Spider-Man 2, the Spider-Man movies haven't really been that good.

Batman Begins was a good reboot, and people loved it. X-Men First Class was a quasi-reboot, and it was well received as well. So saying people hate reboots is not really accurate.

People are just getting tired of Spider-Man because those movies have a poor track record period; it's not really related to it being rebooted at all.

Superman was rebooted for one reason, they needed to have leverage in the legal battle against his creators' families over ownership. There was one scenario where they were going to lose the rights to his iconic design elements.

People claim this, but I have never seen proof. DC rebooted the whole DCU, not just Superman. The New 52 was a complete reboot of everything. The New 52 was done because sales were extremely poor. Using gimmicks like relaunching with shiny new #1 issues and killing off characters is a gimmick to boost sales that has been in use since the 1990s.

re: Future DC Extended Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

Apparently the plan was to reboot Superman (maybe some others), because Morrison's plot for Action was supposedly done before the new 52 came about... maybe this was because of the lawsuit, who knows? But poor sales caused them to do a full reboot (well, not really, because of Johns on GL and Morrison on Bats, but close enough) out of Flashpoint. The problem in my eyes was that it was so sudden, and unlike, say, Shooter's early Valiant, poorly mapped out (hence the two Lobos, the contradictions, hiring Liefeld, etc.), with what seemed like constant editorial interference to try to smooth things out. But hey, it did boost sales, and that's what mattered to them. Plus they got the underwear-on-the-outside look off of Superman in time for MoS.

Superman Returns was at least a soft reboot, asking us to disregard the last two movies in the previous series.

1. Superman Returns might have been a continuation in idea, but most saw it as a reboot. Totally new cast...yeah....thats a reboot thanks.

2. Batman has been rebooted 3 times. The Burton/Schumacher, Nolan and now the Snyder version. Thats 3.

3. You missed my main point, being that its better to build a universe of characters with a cohesive plan rather than throw them all together without thinking too much about giving each character time to grow and their subsequent space within the world you are creating and their relationships with other characters.

And i am not saying that all reboots can be bad, i am saying that people get tired quicker when they keep reseting characters, rather than trying to iron out issues and make the character between developed on the big screen.

I think he meant that Burton/Schumacher wasn't really rebooting from a previously launched franchise. They were the baseline so the next 2 are the reboots.

I always just thought Superman was rebooted simply because fans didn't really care much for Superman Returns

re: Future DC Extended Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

FINALLY found this thread. News from Warner's CEO about DC's output up to 2020.


Quote:
Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara announced planes for a two-part Justice League movie along with six other films.

The Justice League will be directed by Zack Snyder and broken into two parts with the first being released in 2017 and the second 2019.

The rest of the films are as follows:

Staring in 2016 will be The Suicide Squad. This is in discussion with 4 A-list stars according to the announcement.

In 2017 will be Justice League pt 1 and Wonder Woman.

2018 will bring us The Flash and Aquaman.

2019 gets Shazam (with Duane Johnson) and Justice League pt 2

And finally 2020 gets Cyborg and Green Lantern.

‘The Flash’ Movie to Star Ezra Miller, Out in 2018
October 15, 2014 | 09:19AM PT Justin Kroll

Hot on the heels of DC Comics icon “The Flash’s” small-screen success on The CW, Warner Bros. has confirmed that a standalone “Flash” movie is coming in 2018. The film will be unaffiliated with The CW series and will feature a new actor in the role: Ezra Miller.

During the Time Warner earnings meeting Warner Bros. Chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara announced “The Flash” would bow in 2018.

No writer or director are attached at this time. Bewkes also announced that a movie focused on DC Comics’ Aquaman will bow in 2018 with Jason Momoa set to star.

“The Flash” story revolves around Barry Allen, a scientist who awakes from a coma and is gifted with the power of super speed. Allen is a part of the Justice League and it is expected that Miller will have some sort of cameo in the upcoming pic “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” where that team is likely to be unveiled.

Warner Bros. also announced several other films scheduled to bow in the next several years including a “Wonder Woman” movie slated for 2017 and “Justice League: Part 2″ in 2019.

Grant Gustin stars as the Scarlet Speedster in the recently-launched CW “Flash” series, which set ratings records for the network in last week’s debut.

Miller was most recently seen in “Madame Bovary.” He is repped by Paradigm.

re: Future DC Extended Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

WB just said that the schedule does not include the upcoming solo Batman & Superman films, so there's even more.

I wonder if they could be filming all this shit at once like Lord of the Rings and just release the films whenever.

I don't have much hope for the DC Cinematic Universe. They seem to be casting people for their looks more than their acting range

Yup WW announced before Marvel announces a female lead.
Aquaman announced and Namor has never been mentioned on the Marvel side.
And I bet Suicide Squad is released before Sinister Six.

re: Future DC Extended Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

I'm a bit excited about Aquaman with Jason Momoa and a rebooted Green Lantern. Hopefully by 2020, the stench of the Reynold's version will have dissipated.
