    In what is probably one of the smartest decisions I have seen a DCEU production make, the producers of ‘Shazam’ are crafting their film, which will indeed take place in the DCEU, entirely without Zack Snyder’s involvement. Apparently, that was a key negotiation point when they were talking about creating the film, and it is […]

    Ah, “what could have been” – in the realm of cinema, it’s a question asked by fans, studio executives, and creative types alike when a movie massively underperforms.  In most situations (but not all), movies tank simply because they’re bad, but other factors can come into play as well, including bad advance press, dislike for […]

    Quick warning to anyone who has not seen ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ there are some major SPOILERS ahead. Read at your own peril.

    Even though we all have heard the statements from Netflix saying that they will only be releasing 2 Marvel shows a year (which is why we have to wait for 2018 to get ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 2), it seems there is still hope that the company might be changing its tune when it comes to […]

    ‘Suicide Squad’ still won the weekend, but saw a perilous 67% drop off from its opening weekend.  (For comparison, the much more hated ‘Batman V Superman‘ dropped 69% in its second week.)  Taking in $43.8 million, it looks like the terrible reviews and meh word-of-mouth have severely deflated this film, which many were hoping would […]

    Fans already know that ‘Deadpool 2′ will include the characters Cable and Domino from Marvel’s long-running ‘X-Force’ franchise, which has also served as a home for Deadpool himself at times. ‘Deadpool’ was such a rousing smash that a sequel was a no-brainer and is due to begin filming early next year.  So who might be […]

    While already firmly established as a core member of The Justice League via his short-but-sweet cameos in ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Suicide Squad,’ audiences haven’t seen much of Ezra Miller as The Flash just quite yet.  As a result, he’s a bit of an unknown element to the DC Extended Universe, and […]
