NEW PHOTOS OF ‘THE BATMAN”S BATMOBILE

EZdH6-xVcAAHIe3
While we’ve already seen photos of the new designed Batmobile , we finally have a closer and more detailed look.

The project is being directed by Matt Reeves, whose credits includes directing ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ (2014) and my first impression is that we’ll see something simillar to Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’- trilogy; in other words, a closer-to-reality Batman.

That is supported by the fact that Reeves’ is said to have “re-worked the story to focus on a younger Batman, hoping to emphasize the detective aspect of the character to a greater extent than previous films“.

The role as the caped crusader at night and billionaire Bruce Wayne in the day will be portrayed by Robert Pattinson, known for his role as vampyre Edward in the ‘Twilight’- saga.

Because of the Co-vid19 pandemic, the project has been postponed since March and the release pushed. It was initially planned for June, 25th 2021, and moved to October 1st, 2021.

The Guardian has reported that high-end movies- and TV- projects are now greenlit to resume production and that includes ‘The Batman’, ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ and the second season of Netflix’s ‘The Witcher’.

Here are the new photos.

IS HENRY CAVILL’S FUTURE IN THE DCEU FINALLY DECIDED?

EZdQqwVWkAEjXb-

Almost two weeks ago, news that the Snyder cut will see daylight stunned the Internet.

It’s ‘Justice League’s original director Zack Snyder’s vision of the fifth film in DC Comics’ based movie universe, also known as DCEU (DC Extended Universe). It gathers Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash. The theatrical cut was around 2 hours long and severe edited due to Snyder’s withdrawal from the project. It will however premiere on HBO Max next year and it’s said to double up the fun – it’s a 4 hours long footage that has yet to be decided upon if it will be released as a movie or splitted into a 6- parts series.

To top this great announcement, Comicbook.com has learned that Henry Cavill, the actor playing the role of Superman in ‘Man of Steel’, ‘Batman v Superman’ and ‘Justice League’ will make a return into the DCEU franchise. It is however, according to the same source, likely that he will be used in supporting roles or cameos, BUT they also state that “Warner Bros. and DC Comics are still figuring out where the character best fits in upcoming films“.

This announcement comes after a long period of negative reports and speculations about the future of Cavill’s Superman.

I can’t wait for the Snyder Cut to finally arrive and see where the DCEU will be heading. ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ (‘Wonder Woman 2’) should hit theaters in August and there are more DCEU- tied projects planned, among these a solo ‘Batman’ feature. The first ‘Wonder Woman’- installment, ‘Aquaman’, Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘Joker’ (Oscar winner) and ‘Shazam!’ were very well received by critiques and audiences.

[TV] THE ARROWVERSE IS CONFIRMED TO COEXIST WITH DCEU

So ever since the Arrowverse premiered its second show – ‘The Flash’, the shows contained by it have had a cross-over event every season where some were guesting others’ shows.

This season’s was titled ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ and was the biggest ever, loosely based on the April 1985 – March 1986 crossover comic series, which rebooted the entire franchise at the time.

‘Crisis’ on TV was unfolded during all DCTV shows with episodes on ” ‘Supergirl'(5×09), ‘Batwoman'(1×09), ‘The Flash'(6×09), ‘Arrow'(8×08), and ‘Legends of Tomorrow'(5×01) on The CW. The ‘Supergirl’, ‘Batwoman’, and ‘The Flash’ episodes aired in December 2019, while the ‘Arrow’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ episodes aired in January 2020. Additionally, events in the Black Lightning episode “The Book of Resistance: Chapter Four: Earth Crisis”, airing between Batwoman and The Flash, and a two-issue comic featuring characters and concepts not able to appear in the live-action episodes, tie into the event.”

The BIGGEST SURPRISE to the event was a brief cameo from DCEU’s ‘The Flash’ – Ezra Miller – meeting his Arrowverse counterpart – played by Grant Gustin. This makes it clear that even though there are different shows, movies and actors, these works, all based on DC Comics’ universe, are now officially in the same multiverse, on alternate Earths. It’s all connected.

We already knew that shows as ‘Titans’, ‘Smallville’ and more also are part of the Arrowverse. There were a couple of cameos confirming this. DC fans must be exalted now, as the whole DC Universe feels more stable and got more to offer. Everything is canon, so just enjoy it.

THere were recently also the news that all Arrowverse shows have been renewed for one more season.

This… this awesome moment:

[TV] THE CW HAS RENEWED ALL OF ITS DC SHOWS

This is more than one week old but I feel as it should be covered.

Since 2012 with the premiere of ‘Arrow’, The CW has been home of a couple of DC series that followed as a result of the mention series’ success and fans quickly named the DCTV universe ‘Arrowverse’.

More than seven years later, five other shows air on the network:
‘The Flash’ is the second longest- running, after ‘Arrow’, is on its sixth season and is greenlit for at least one more.

DC’s ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ and ‘Supergirl’ will be getting a sixth season as well. ‘Black Lightning’ has had its first cross-over event tied to the rest of the Arrowverse with ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ and will return for a fourth season.

The newest addition to the line-up is ‘Batwoman’, a show that also shows lot of potential and will also return for at least a second season.

‘Arrow’ has two episodes left ’til its series finale. It’s not cancelled, it’s ending and there’s a spin-off series planned.

[MOVIES] NEW ‘BIRDS OF PREY’ TRAILER RELEASED

‘Birds of Prey’ is the next DC movie to hit theaters and the eighth film in the DC Extended Universe, right after ‘Man of Steel'(2013), ‘Batman vs Superman'(2016), ‘Suicide Squad'(2016), ‘Wonder Woman'(2017), ‘Justice League'(2017), ‘Aquaman'(2018)and ‘Shazam!'(2019). This year’s ‘Joker has performed very well but is not connected to the DCEU.

Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) joins superheroes Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez).

Since earlier, it is known that Jared Leto will NOT reprise his role as the Joker leading to his partner – Harley Quinn – teaming up with the other (and mentioned) female anti-heroes in a plot that leads them into saving a young girl from an evil crime lord.

Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is the main character and was introduced to the big screen by the same actress in 2016’s ‘Suicide Squad’.

Cathy Yan is the first Asian woman to direct a superhero movie. She is second woman to direct a DC film after Patty Jenkins (‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘Wonder Woman 1984’). The film is R-Rated, which at least for me, is spicing things up.

There have been more trailers released prior to this.

‘Birds of Prey’ opens in US theaters February 7th.

[BOX OFFICE] ‘JOKER’ HAS PASSED $1 BILLION

Joker has passed $1 BILLION at the Box Office

The greatest revelation of the year, without doubt, is Joker.

Being a DC and low-budget movie, few expected it to became the phenomenon it did. Top that with an R-Rating and things would’ve seemed logic.

But… surprise, surprise! It’s the first R-Rated movie in the history to cross the $1 Billion mark and also with the lowest budget in the highly exclusive $1B club. China is also a big market, yet Joker was banned over there, making these figures even more impressive.

I’ve seen it at the theaters and enjoyed it. Already in one of the first scenes (the one on the buss) it was revealed to me that Jaquin Phoenix IS a GREAT ACTOR. He has through this movie a great impact.

I think they did the things the way they did for the fans to speculate and to leave all doors open for, what I hope will become, more stories about the great DC villain. The ball is in your half, Warner, WE WANT MORE!!
