With Justice League gaining most of the headlines of late, development on Shazam! has been quietly moving forward. The DC adaptation is still set to release in 2019 according to director David F. Sandberg, with pre-production moving quickly and the project getting some solid hires under its belt.
Stephen Amell says that Crisis on Earth-X is so big, The CW will have to change its approach to its annual crossover events moving forward. Next week, The CW’s biggest Arrowverse crossover ever kicks off on Supergirl and Arrow on a special night. The following evening will see the four-part even wrap up with The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow at their regular time. From what’s been seen so far in the trailers, it is a project unlike anything the network has undertaken since launching the Arrow in 2012, which gives Amell’s comments plenty of added weight.
Disney-Pixar’s Coco is on track to continue the studio’s Thanksgiving winning streak after claiming victory over Justice League at the Friday domestic box office. The latest from the revolutionary animation studio is following in the footsteps of prior Disney hits like Frozen and Moana, which posted the two biggest Thanksgiving openings ever in the U.S. with $93 million and $82 million respectively. Justice League, meanwhile, continues to have a sluggish start as it hurtles toward commercial disappointment.
Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke look has been fully revealed with the actor sharing a proper image of his DC character on social media. Despite Justice League proving to be a divisive movie, similar to its DC Films predecessors such as Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, there are a handful of brilliant moments in the movie. This includes the exciting post-credit tag that officially debuts Manganiello as Slade Wilson.
Director David Ayer has finally put to rest the long-standing rumor that Jared Leto’s Joker was originally meant to wear a Batman suit in Suicide Squad. This never-realized idea, as well as others both real and imagined, if taken together collectively, could be used to create an entire alternate version of Suicide Squad that might arguably be better than the real movie (though enough people liked the real movie to push it to $745 million at the worldwide box office).
