Justice League is set to be Warner Bros. biggest superhero team-up film yet, with metahumans we’ve met and a few we haven’t coming together to fight against injustice. Even those who aren’t traditionally members of the team are in for this fight, including a few of Wonder Woman’s Themysciran compatriots.
Tom Cruise’s The Mummy is the beginning of a new Dark Universe for Universal Studios, and as such is tasked with connecting this film to a bunch of other ones in the franchise. The Creature from the Black Lagoon, the Bride of Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, and a bunch of others will soon be hitting the big screen, all under the Dark Universe umbrella. So, what fits them all together? The plot device — I mean, the Prodigium, of course.
Because the one thing this world has been clamoring for is a Suicide Squad sequel, we’ve got a few updates on Deadshot and the gang’s next adventure. For one thing, the script is being written right now, and it looks like, although it doesn’t officially have a director, the movie is on track for a production start sometime next year.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That seems to be the motto of the production team behind both John Wicks, as they’re bringing back their star, their director, and now their screenwriter for the third go-round. Derek Kolstad, who penned both John Wick and John Wick Chapter 2 is back on the team for John Wick 3.
Universal’s Dark Universe is kicking off with Tom Cruise’s The Mummy, which is only a week away(!!!). While we know that this movie will, indeed, feature a mummy who is hunting down Tom Cruise for some reason (I mean, weren’t we all, at some point in our lives?) a few things still remain a mystery. What is Russell Crowe’s Dr. Jekyll’s role in all this? How did Cruise and his team of archaeologists stumble upon the mummy’s tomb anyway? And why does she want Tom Cruise so badly?
With production soon underway on Godzilla: King of the Monsters, it’s time for Warner Bros. and Legendary to start checking the boxes of the next installment: Godzilla vs. Kong. Much like movies with “vs.” somewhere in their title, this one will feature two characters likely beating the living daylights out of each other, perhaps before becoming friends by bonding over their moms. And since this monster cinematic universe is akin to indie directors moving from the sandbox to the big kid playground, Warners has settled on their next small-time director for their big-time blockbuster. Adam Wingard, whose credits include You’re Next, The Guest, and Blair Witch, has been tapped to helm Godzilla vs. Kong.
One of my favorite things is those fake “honest” photoshopped movie posters of all the nominees that some out when Oscar season rolls around. Last year Martin Scorsese’s Silence turned into Godfellas, Arrival became War of the Words, and Hell or High Water was retitled Buying a House is Hard. For Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn thought he’d (as always) have some fun with Easter eggs, and made some fake movie posters of his own for Nathan Fillion’s Simon Williams cameo.
Nowadays, watching a superhero movie without a post-credits scene or two feels almost incomplete. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gave us an unprecedented four mid-credits scenes, and a few MCU movies before that had had at least two. But the DCEU is different, with both Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman eschewing the post-credits scene rule in favor of letting the movie end at the credits and allowing audience members to go the heck home. However, Suicide Squad did have one — which featured Amanda Waller handing over her files to Bruce Wayne. No doubt that was meant to connect Suicide Squad to the Justice League, but does that mean the upcoming Wonder Woman will also have a scene after the credits have rolled?
Godzilla: King of the Monsters seems to be working all the Prestige TV angles it can find. After locking down Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown and Bloodline’s Kyle Chandler, he film has just cast Charles Dance, a.k.a. the winner of Game of Thrones’ Number One Dad award.
Since online pirates tend to view “don’t steal stuff” as more of a guideline than an actual rule, it’s no surprise that eventually they’d start taking aim at Hollywood. And, hey, why not start big, with, say, Disney, the biggest studio in the business? And instead of pilfering something like Coco, how about going after, I dunno, maybe Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth installment in one of the most recognizable brands worldwide? Well, that’s exactly what a group of hackers apparently did.
Michael Fassbender is about to grace our silver screens once again in Alien: Covenant, playing an android named Walter, a synthetic engineered to assist spacefaring humans on their long journeys to distant planets. He’s established himself as a great dramatic/genre actor, even becoming a cornerstone of the X-Men franchise. But there’s one kind of movie he has yet to dip a toe into, though he}d very much like to. Yes, folks, Michael Fassbender wants to get into comedy.
Alien: Covenant hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but that doesn’t mean that Ridley Scott can rest on his laurels just yet. With Prometheus, he expanded the Alien universe, and with Covenant he’s poised to expand it some more. That leaves plenty of room for his prospective slate of future Alien films, starting with his Covenant follow-up, which is currently untitled, but will be ready to film in a little more than a year.
