Hey, everyone! Thanks for being patient while I work on these larger updates. I’m excited to have this one finished and posted just in time for Keystone Comic-Con in Philadelphia! You can find me there this weekend in Artist Alley at Table B3! I hope to see some of you there!
WARNER BROTHERS DEVELOPING ‘SUPER PETS’ MOVIE!
Warner Brothers are developing an animated movie based on ‘Super Pets’, the pet companions of DC heroes, led by Krypto the Superdog. The movie will be written by Alan Stern. The movie is intended for theatrical release and is not part of DC’s long-standing animated universe. This is the 24th DC movie announced as being in development!
‘JUSTICE LEAGUE VS THE FATAL FIVE’ ANIMATED MOVIE ANNOUNCED!
The movie will be released in 2019!
Guys, several people in the entertainment media business seem to be implying through cryptic tweets that something big is about to go down at Warner Brothers regarding Henry Cavill and the rape comments he made in a recent interview. If they fire him I swear to god!
Do you think DCU will be successful? I hope it can be huge for DC
Hmm. I think there will be a lot of buzz and praise for ‘DC Universe’ when it first launches, enticing people to subscribe, and it will do pretty well. However, there is a limited amount of DC content and after a couple of months making your way through the library, once the nostalgia of watching old movies and shows wears off, I think there could be a big drop off. Maintaining subscribers after the first few months will be what determines whether it is a success, and that will rely solely on new content, and so far there are only 5 new shows announced. That’s not enough to keep people subscribing month after month in my honest opinion, they will need to massively increase the output of new content, but we’ll see. I’m excited for it!
DC news has been quite slow since ‘Justice League’ came out but its all about to kick up a gear – we should have a new Aquaman trailer this week, new trailers for the Titans and Harley Quinn DC Universe shows before it launches around August, Wonder Woman 2 has started filming so set photos should start coming out, the first Shazam trailer should be out not long after that, Lego DC Super-Villains game should be released and a new Rocksteady Superman game officially announced, then Aquaman is released in December. The rest of 2018 will be jam packed, can’t wait!
Hot(?) take. I feel Shazam! Is going to be the DCEU equivalent of cw's arrow. As in, it's going to the Superman movie people want. Either way, really excited.
I feel more like it’s going to be the DCEU equivalent of Deadpool. Meaning it will be very self-aware and make fun of itself, but in a more family-friendly manner. The first look immediately reminded me of some of the original Deadpool posters.
NEW PHOTO FROM GEORGE MILLER’S CANCELLED ‘JUSTICE LEAGUE’ MOVIE REVEALED!
Back in 2008, before the DCEU existed, George Miller was directing a blockbuster movie called ‘Justice League Mortal’. The movie got cancelled before filming began due to the Hollywood Writer’s Strike, but not before an entire cast was assembled and full costumes were developed. Above you can see what the official cast would have looked like in the movie. From left to right – Armie Hammer as Batman, DJ Cotrona as Superman, Adam Brody as the Flash, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, and an unknown actor as Green Lantern!
A Shazam event will be streamed live from Entertainment Weekly’s Facebook page today at 6pm-8pm. Probably cast Q&A plus maybe a first official look a the costume will be revealed. I dunno, we’ll see!
I feel like the shazam movie has no budget whatsoever
The official logo looks like a random 12 year old made it in their bedroom with clipart in 2002. We knew that DCEU movies were going to have their budgets reduced after ‘Justice League’ failed to make a profit but I didn’t expect it to be so drastic. After the costume and now the logo, I’m worried.
