IMO, Gotham City Sirens is the most likely since it won't have as heavy post compared with those others.

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

Things at DC seem like such a clusterfuck. The films we were banking on making are having behind the scenes issues so we're scrambling to find something to put on the release schedule is basically how that reads. Now yes there is that statement about how if there isn't a script for one of the proposed films they're happy with just having Aquaman but I somehow don't buy that and think they'll try to push forward with something.

As I said, the only one that feasibly could come out in Aug of next year is Gotham City Sirens, enough time to complete a script (which I think is being worked as they did hire a writer) and to film in the fall, but outside of that, no way those other four to get done give the amount of post production needed (Lantern and Dark Justice especially). I kind of have to question the validity of this news tbh.

Doesn't bode well for them to release a movie that is actually good in the near future.

They need to get their fucking shit together.

Come up with a plan and stick with it.

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

IDK, seems like hiring Matt Reeves and approaching Matthew Vaughn is a step in the right direction (not to mention James Wan working on Aquaman).

Given the bone-headed moves of WB/DC to date and all the issues they've had I'm inclined to believe it.

The problem with WB/DC is for every good decision they make towards stepping in the right direction its like they take five steps backwards again. People wonder why there's such negativity surrounding them its because the only thing they consistently do is make weird choices or we're hearing about behind the scenes drama on their films. They need to get their shit together.

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

Wasn't sure where to put this or how serious to take it since The Rock is always teasing something (not just DC):

The Rock Teases Early Introduction Of Black Adam In The DCEU

Quote:
“It’s definitely going to happen, sure. We’ve had great conversations with Geoff Johns and everyone over at DC. It’s an exciting time right now for everyone at DC because they are in a process now where they are building out [their DC universe] really nicely. 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.”
http://heroichollywood.com/rock-intr...ack-adam-dceu/

There were rumors of Black Adam getting his own movie, but outside of that and the obvious Shazam movie, the only other DC film he'd fit in would be Man of Steel 2, but that pretty much would be a similar plot to Man of Steel (i.e. two super-beings fighting one another); I'd much rather (FINALLY) see Brainiac.

Edit: I guess another project could be Green Lantern Corps.

He'll probably show up as a cameo in Justice League or Aquaman or Flash like Diana did in BvS.

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

I don't know much about the character or any interactions with Aquaman, but I wouldn't mind seeing a cameo in that movie. Seeing Momoa going up against The Rock could be cool.

Seems like there might be more interest (on Warner's part anyway) for a Black Adam movie before Shazam.

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

Obviously we'll see him when Batman is watching youtube on a computer screen, isn't that how most of these cameos go?

I just now realized that the Rock playing him means that Black Adam finally falls into the old stereotype: black in the name, lightning powers.

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

They just need to make a movie with nothing but cameos. It may be the only thing they'd be good at. Cause it sure as hell ain't storylines.

Don't forget that the video will be in a folder with the Black Adam logo.

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

In the story about Jenkin's not being signed for Wonder Woman 2, the article also says:

Quote:
And the studio had been focusing on putting together Justice League Dark, a supernatural team-up project, and Batgirl, a Joss Whedon-helmed film (among other Bat-offerings), as the likely next movies to go into production in the DC Comics universe.

Ben Affleck's Batman Future in Doubt as Warner Bros. Plots Franchise

Ben Affleck is heading to Comic-Con this weekend to promote Warner Bros.’ upcoming Justice League movie, set for a Nov. 17 release. But how many more times is he likely to put on the Batsuit? Probably not many, if ever again.

Yes, Warners’ film studio chief Toby Emmerich tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Ben is our Batman. We love him as Batman. We want to keep him in the cowl as long as we can." And Matt Reeves, who will direct the studio’s still-undated (and unwritten) The Batman, has said that he means to keep Affleck in the role. But a source with knowledge of the situation says that the studio is working on plans to usher out Affleck’s Batman — gracefully, addressing the change in some shape or form in one of the upcoming DC films.

Exactly when and how that might happen has yet to be determined, but it would be wise to bet against Affleck starring in The Batman. Already he has stepped away from directing the film and Reeves is dropping the script that Affleck wrote with D.C. Entertainment’s Geoff Johns.

Reeves also has acknowledged that he has a Batman trilogy rolling around in his head, and given his success making two-thirds of a trilogy out of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes, it seems fair to anticipate that Warners will want him to realize his vision.

In addition, Affleck will turn 45 in August, so he would be pushing 50 before The Batman arrives in theaters. If Reeves makes a trilogy, Affleck would be in his mid-50s at best by the time that’s done. Maybe Tom Cruise could pull that off but Affleck’s body hasn’t exactly been a temple.

And while male stars have been able to stretch their action-film relevance further in an age when there are fewer bankable young stars (Robert Downey, Jr. is 52 and going strong as Iron Man), studios favor the fresh-faced — look what happened with Spider-Man, successfully rebooted with 21-year-old Tom Holland. (Affleck also just dropped out of the Netflix project Triple Frontier, and it’s not clear what his next movie will be. His reps declined to comment.)

Warners could hypothetically create dual Batmen, keeping Affleck in the role for a planned Justice League follow-up while letting Reeves cast his movie with a different star. But that hardly seems likely. The first Justice League already is at an inflection point: Director Zack Snyder has stepped away in mid-production and his successor, Joss Whedon, is said to be doing extensive reshoots. (Note that Justice League member Superman is played by Henry Cavill, 34, The Flash is Ezra Miller, 24, Aquaman is Jason Momoa, 37, and Wonder Woman is 32-year-old Gal Gadot.) And a second Justice League movie would be years down the road. THR reported Thursday that Shazam!, with a yet-to-be-cast title star, will be the next DC movie to shoot.

Of course, Batman transitions have happened before. Starting in 1989, Warners has made films with Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale and Affleck. As a source with ties to the situation observes, there is precedent in the Batman comics for Bruce Wayne handing off the mantle to others, and even for two different Batmen cleaning up the streets of Gotham simultaneously.

The landmark 1993 Knightfall storyline left Wayne temporarily paralyzed, leading him to appoint a vigilante called Azrael as his Batman replacement. When Azrael went rogue, Wayne came out of retirement to stop him and then swiftly retired once more, appointing Dick Grayson (AKA Robin) as the new Batman. That was so successful that when Wayne was assumed dead in 2009, Grayson took on the cowl for a second time. (Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises even went this route, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's John Blake getting the keys to the Batcave after Bale's Bruce Wayne was presumed dead.)

In the comics, Grayson stayed on as Batman even when Wayne returned to work as The Dark Knight, with the two different Batmen splitting appearances between the various comic books. Bruce Wayne took Batman Inc. and Batman and Robin, while Grayson's stories ran in Batman and Detective Comics. Grayson also appeared monthly in the Justice League of America series during this period, arguably making him the more high-profile of the two characters.

Warner Bros. could even go with the Batman Beyond approach. The fan-favorite animated series (1999-2001) saw an elderly Bruce Wayne train a young man called Terry McGinnis as his apprentice, with Wayne teaching him to take over the role as Batman. Of course, there's a downside to the passing-the-torch scenarios: It's hard to imagine fans or Reeves being excited about following someone who is not Bruce Wayne for a Batman trilogy.

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

It was announced at the San Diego Comic Con that Shazam is the next movie getting filmed.

And the more I see of the Flash's movie costume, the more I hate it. WB better pull off some CGI wizardry in post to give that suit more life.

Honestly I don't have a lot of interest in Shazam aside from Dwayne Johnson playing Black Adam.

Zack Snyder's future at Warner Bros.' DC movies: Limited at best, dunzo at worst

Quote:
Zack Snyder, primary engineer of the DC Comics movie universe since Man of Steel, whose creative vision has been polarizing to say the least, will take a significantly smaller role with the franchise going forward, as will his wife, producer Deborah Snyder, Mashable has learned.

For its part, Warners strongly denied the notion that the Snyders would no longer be actively involved in creative decision-making.

At the forefront of that effort is Geoff Johns, who swiftly ascended from the comic-book world to become president and chief creative officer at Warners' DC division last year, reporting to Diane Nelson, president of DC Entertainment. His close creative partner and secret weapon will be Joss Whedon, who stepped in for the departing Snyders to finish Justice League. As Variety first reported on Monday, extensive re-shoots are under way on that film, and more than the usual regularly scheduled pickup shots; sources confirm that while Snyder's action sequences are useable, a wide swath of story and dialogue are being redone.

To some, the same can possibly be said for Aquaman director James Wan and Matt Reeves, the War for the Planet of the Apes director who is taking over the directing chair from Ben Affleck on the planned Batman movie. It's early yet, but Reeves' reputation after Apes could not be more sterling, his world-building chops are clearly first rate and the studio will throw its support to him.

Another person whose involvement is now in question: David Ayer, the Suicide Squad helmer, who is still listed as the director of the Harley Quinn-led spinoff Gotham City Sirens. That film was not featured in Warner Bros.' Comic-Con sizzle reel of nine upcoming DC movies last weekend, and sources say Ayer won't ultimately be part of their plans. Ayer's rep flatly denied that he's off the project, saying it's still in development and that the script is not yet complete.

But there are other signs that he's moving on: Ayer seemed to signal his discontent with his WB/DC experience at his Comic-Con panel on Thursday for Bright, the fantasy buddy-cop film that Netflix gave him $90 million to make.

At least they're cutting of Ayer after one movie, unlike Snyder.

What did Ayer say about DC/WB? I saw he complained about the studio movie process in general, but didn't see specific comments about them.

IDK how much of the blame Ayer has for Suicide Squad. Seems like he was handcuffed in what he could make (limited time to write a script, studio bringing in a trailer company to edit, etc).

"I don't think people realize the situation filmmakers face," he said, stressing that Netflix didn't intervene in his process — they just let him run with it. "[Bright] isn't like, some bullshit standard issue studio PG-13 movie. I was able to do some real shit here," said Ayer, who has directed exactly one PG-13 movie in his career: Suicide Squad.
Should've included that but I cut it down to the more interesting parts. It is a long article.
