Joker Movie In The Works

Gamespot

Well it’s about time the King of Clowns had his own film!

Via Deadline:

EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros and DC are in the early stages of another Batman Universe spinoff movie, this one telling the origin story of the signature villain The Joker. The studio has set The Hangover‘s Todd Phillips to co-write a script with 8 Mile scribe Scott Silver. Phillips will direct the movie, and Martin Scorsese will produce it with Phillips. This will be the first film under a new banner that has yet to be named in which WB can expand the canon of DC properties and create unique storylines with different actors playing the iconic characters.

An intriguing part is the setting. The intention is to make a gritty and grounded hard-boiled crime film set in early-’80s Gotham City that isn’t meant to feel like a DC movie as much as one of Scorsese’s films from that era, like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull or The King Of Comedy. I’m told that Phillips and Silver are writing already, but there is nothing firm on where this will fit into the DC schedule.

Sci-Clops will keep you posted on this film’s progress!

Check Out This Superman Vs. Shazam Video!

ScreenRant

Newsweek

You know you’ve always wondered – who would win THIS one? Remember having this argument with your geeky kid friends? This cool DC video has a breakdown of this ultimate match. Who’s the most powerful hero of them all? You could make a good case for either of today’s combatants. Superman has strength, heat vision, freeze breath and is invulnerable to most standard attacks. But Shazam is infused with the power of the gods and can easily match Supes’ strength. Will Billy Batson’s magical abilities be enough to break the Man of Steel? Or will Superman take down Shazam like the child he really is? Video at the link below.

Flickering Myth

After watching this video, you’ll be asking yourself why the CW Flash can’t step up his game a little…

Is the Flash faster than Lightning? We’ll soon find out as the Scarlet Speedster takes on none other than Black Lightning in this week’s versus clip! They both fight for the side of justice and have shows on The CW, but that’s where the similarities end. Can Barry Allen channel the Speed Force and run circles around Jefferson Pierce?

The Flash Reborn With New Season 4 Costume, Elongated Man Cast

Flickering Myth

Glad to see they’re not adding another speedster to the lineup!

Via Flickering Myth: The Flash will be reborn this October when Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen emerges from the Speed Force for the fourth season of The CW’s hit DC superhero show, and Gustin has been chatting to EW about this ‘rebirth’ and how his character has been affected between seasons.

“The way I see it is, time is non-linear and everything is happening at once in the Speed Force. In someways he’s had an awakening and he’s had a rebirth. Our first episode is called ‘Reborn,’ and it is a rebirth for Barry, but he’s kind of scrambled, too, because he’s experienced so much so quick over the course of six months, even though for him it was an eternity. He’s not Barry when we see him for the first time.”

Video – Justice League: Who is Steppenwolf?

MoviePilot

He’s intelligent, extremely powerful and was created by the great Jack Kirby. Yes, we’re talking about Steppenwolf, the axe-wielding New God who will take on the entire Justice League when their eagerly anticipated movie arrives this November. But if you’re unfamiliar with him, don’t worry. In this DC All Access clip, we dip into the baddie’s comic book history, from his first appearance to the time he took on Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman in The New 52 (let’s just hope it goes differently in the film). Video at the link below.

Why Wonder Woman’s Olympian Gods Are Important For The DCEU’s Future

Great article which makes you think that perhaps we’ll see some of Wonder Woman’s gods appearing later on in movies.

Via Cinemablend:

Many of DC Comics’ superheroes have been thought of as “gods” walking among humans, and it’s a fitting analogy. But there are also true gods in the DC universe, and at the beginning of this month, Wonder Woman revealed that the deities from Greek mythology once existed in the DC Extended Universe. Zeus created humanity in the image of the Olympian titans, and for millennia they lived in peace among us. Unfortunately, all of them were killed by Ares during the War of the Gods, leaving only the Themyscirans to know about the threat Zeus’ treacherous son posed. Millenia later, Wonder Woman killed Ares, leaving her as the only Olympian left thanks to her demigod status.

 

Unless Wonder Woman 2 somehow brings the Olympian Gods back to life, it’s doubtful we’ll ever see them in the modern day DCEU. However, they still hold tremendous importance for the DCEU, both through a potential appearance in the new future and how they connect to other mighty beings from the DC pantheon. Let’s begin by looking ahead at Justice League, which is five months away and arguably the biggest movie of this franchise yet. Read more here
