I’ll give em’ one thing, that’s a rad poster. San Diego Comic-Con happened. It should actually be called “San Diego Blockbuster Movie Tentpole Franchise Preview-Con” because it looks like actual comic books gave movie studios a whole bunch of material to work with and then left the building awhile ago. Do they even HAVE actual comics at SDCC? DC announced a whole mess of superhero movies coming down the pike (via Digital Spy). We’re talking YEARS of super-hero movies. And yet, still no Wonder Twins flick. For shame! Here’s the round-up. (For those of you who don’t care, I’m sure we’ll eventually have a non-geek post soon.)
Justice League drops on November 17, and they premiered a new trailer for it. It’s basically a big cartoon, but Ezra Miller seems like he’ll be fun as Flash, my respect for Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman is increasing, and I think we’re all in agreement about Jason Momoa as Aqua-Piece Of Ass (despite the crispy highlights). You can watch below.
James Wan made that creepy puppet on the bike from Saw. He’s also directing the Aqua-Sexy Slab Of Beef flick that comes out on December 21, 2018. (The puppet will probably get his own movie at some point, because they’re already re-booting Saw.)
Shazam! comes out on April 5, 2019 (he’s like Superman except he’s magic and wears red and gold). Suicide Squad 2 will also be coming out in 2019, but there’s no release date yet. Hopefully, the whole movie will be Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, because she was the only (barely) redeeming part of THAT piece of ess. Ray Fisher as Cyborg gets his own solo flick coming out on April 3, 2020. And Green Lantern Corps (thankfully sans Ryan Reynolds) comes out on July 24, 2020.
Those are all the definitive release dates. DC Movies that are on the way that they haven’t nailed down just yet when you should expect Burger Kings tie-in cups include Wonder Woman 2 (it will have the same director Patty Jenkins and it might be set in the 80s!!!), The Batman (which looks increasingly like Batfleck might be headed towards the exit on), Flashpoint (a Flash-centric movie), Man of Steel 2 (you mean he didn’t really die?), Black Adam (Shazam!’s arch-nemesis to be played by Dwayne Johnson), Batman’s former sidekick (and comic book ass icon) Nightwing’s getting a movie (is anyone else getting tired?), and Joss Whedon (yay) is directing Batgirl.
Pause for breath. Continue. Harley Quinn along with Catwoman and Poison Ivy will assuredly not have their boobs played up for horny fanboys in Gotham City Sirens. And Justice League Dark (all of their magic superheroes) is on the way. Jesus, it’s like they’re trying to plan our lives!
Oh, and there’s also THREE movies coming out that they haven’t even identified the title and characters involved on 11/1/19, 2/14/20, and 6/5/19. One of those better be the Wonder Twins. Hell, it better be Wonder Twins parts one, two, and three!
Right now I would like to watch a movie where Meryl Streep, Toni Collette, and Tatiana Maslany play three women suffering from multiple personality disorder. And it’s a musical. That’s probably the only thing that can cleanse my palate from CGI superhero overkill at this point.
