While we have a couple years to wait until a feature-length sequel, the studio is giving us a little something in the interim.
Kiersey Clemons talks about wait to get going on DC Extended Universe's 'Flash' movie while promoting her new film, 'The Only Living Boy in New York'
With Wonder Woman continuing her assault on the box-office record books, it’s no surprise that the film’s brain trust is already cranking away on a sequel. Although no details have been announced yet — we expect some news at Saturday’s Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con — director Patty Jenkins and DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns are teaming up for the Amazon princess’ second solo outing. “I’m working right now on the Wonder Woman 2 script,” Johns told Yahoo Movies.
'We haven't announced any casting yet,' Johns says. 'But Dwayne isn't going to be in this movie. He's still doing Black Adam, but he won't be in Shazam!'
DC has invited a few of its super friends to the Comic-Con party. Here, neatly assembled in glass enclosures (which look not unlike The Collector’s menagerie from a certain rival universe) are Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg sporting their costumes from this November’s Justice League. The team (sans Superman) is the centerpiece of the publisher’s booth, prominently located in the main thoroughfare of the San Diego Convention Center. Yahoo Movies got up close with the heroes; click through for our snaps from the show floor.
As you may recall, Bruce Wayne's last Batmobile from Batman v Superman wasn't quite Kryptonian proof. That means that the upcoming Justice League movie will feature a new and improved model, and Yahoo Movies has your first look.
The “Wonder Woman” film offers yet another version of the Amazon’s genesis, cherry-picking from her various comic backstories and tossing in some new details.
Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) are getting together a bunch of their new super friends for what DC and Warner Bros. hope is a crime-busting good time in the upcoming Justice League, slated for Nov. 17. While we’ve glimpsed the new members in trailers and brief interludes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we haven’t really gotten a clear look at Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) until today, when Warner Bros. unveiled the screen costumes at the annual Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, along with a bunch of the studio’s movie-related merchandise. As we’ve noted before here (and here!), the looks are inspired by such video games as Injustice, Arkham: Batman, and DC Universe Online as much as the classic comics. Click through and check them out for yourself.
Mel Gibson is mulling joining the DC Extended Universe … as a director. Warner Bros. is courting the actor-director to helm Suicide Squad 2 and the sides are early in talks, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Sources say that Gibson is familiarizing himself with the material.
One triumph of The Lego Batman Movie is its ability to simultaneously satirize and celebrate the legacy of the Dark Knight, a rich history spanning eight decades of comic books, TV shows, and, especially, films. From Will Arnett’s Christian Bale-inspired gravelly growl to callbacks to the 1940s serial, The Lego Batman Movie is overstuffed with cinematic references and inside jokes. The pilot immediately calls out the Joker, pointing out how his previous big-screen endeavors were thwarted by the Caped Crusaders, alluding to both 2008’s The Dark Knight and 1989’s Batman.
"It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require," says the actor, who will still star as the Dark Knight.
Emma Stone imagined as Poison Ivy by artist Kode A., a.k.a. Christmas came early for Margot Robbie when Warner Bros. announced that her breakout Suicide Squad character, Harley Quinn, would be getting her own spin-off movie in the form of Gotham City Sirens. Based on the DC Comics title of the same name, which ran for 26 issues between 2009 and 2011, the movie will re-team Robbie with her Squad director, David Ayer, and partner Harley with two more Gotham City bad girls: cat burglar Catwoman and seductive eco-terrorist Poison Ivy, who has the power to control men’s minds through plant pheromones.
It takes a woman to win a war in Wonder Woman, the next superhero film in the DC Extended Universe. The new trailer explains why the Amazon princess Diana (Gal Gadot) leaves her isolated homeland to fight alongside American troops in World War I as Wonder Woman. Although she finds turn-of-the-century fashions restrictive — “How can a woman possibly fight in this?” she asks while trying on a corseted dress — her bullet-deflecting bracelets and warrior skills are definitely an asset to the Allies.
Arguably DC fans are most excited to see how the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ turns, hoping it’ll be the turning point where the studio can begin to compete with Marvel for big screen prowess. While ‘Wonder Woman’ is in cinemas next summer and Patty Jenkins’ production is shaping up nicely, it’s perhaps Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ that looks set to be the film that competes with Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ series. With all the buzz around the character, Snyder (who’s directing ‘Justice League’ and is responsible for ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’) has shared a brand new image of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman on Twitter.
Anyone who’s seen DC’s ‘Suicide Squad’ will be aware of a mid-credit sequence, but what exactly does it reveal and, importantly, mean?*The following contains huge Suicide Squad spoilers*
Where ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ failed, ‘Suicide Squad’ is expected to succeed, as its release at the start of August is set to truly kick-start the DC Extended Universe. To do just that it’s already been confirmed that ‘Suicide Squad’ will include an appearance from Batman, but it’s now been heavly suggested that the blockbuster might feature another member of the ‘Justice League’, too. Because it’s been speculated that Ezra Miller’s the Flash/Barry Allen will make his second appearance in the DCU in ‘Suicide Squad’, following on from his teeny tiny cameo in ‘Batman V Superman’.
There’s not long until David Ayer’s ‘Suicide Squad’ hits cinemas, but while DC will be crossing their fingers for a hit, analysts believe it’ll open to enormous profits.
Given that it was almost universally agreed that Gal Gadot’s appearance as Wonder Woman was the principal saving grace of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ it’s hard to believe that not so long ago many vocal fans were questioning the Israeli model-turned-actress’s suitability for the role. Having survived her baptism of fire, Gadot has just finished work on the ‘Wonder Woman’ solo movie, which is due in cinemas in less than eleven months time – and now, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we have four new looks at the star in action. It makes sense that her suit would be considerably less tarnished, given ‘Wonder Woman’ is set 100 years earlier during World War I, and sees the immortal Amazon princess Diana visit the mortal world for the first time.
You would have thought that following the tepid response to ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Warner Bros might proceed a little more cautiously with their DC Extended Universe. This comes shortly after it was alleged a solo Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) film is also being worked on. According to We Got This Covered’s unnamed source the studio are actually considering the future of the entire Task Force X, but they’re mostly interested in Joker, Harley Quinn, and Boomerang spin-offs.
