The status of The Flash has been in doubt for years. Originally announced back in 2014, Ezra Miller’s first solo outing as the Scarlet Speedster was due to land in 2018. Since then, the project has been in development hell and gone through a number of directors, with the film’s problems compounded by the DCEU changing course after the failure of Justice League and Miller being busy with the ongoing Fantastic Beasts franchise.
Few films in the Star Wars saga mined its past as readily as Rogue One did, a spinoff/prequel/multi-million dollar retcon that reintroduced iconic characters in unexpected ways. So, you may not be entirely surprised to learn there was one more familiar face billed for an appearance before circumstances dictated otherwise.
Now that we know Captain Marvel 2 is officially in development, information on the sequel is beginning to become more clear. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who both co-wrote and directed the first film, will not be returning. They will, however, stay on as producers and are reportedly in talks to direct a Disney Plus series. As such, Marvel is now said to be looking for a female director to step into the chair for the follow-up.
Last year’s Joker became the most profitable comic book movie ever made, and the first R-rated film to gross a billion dollars, against a budget of just under $63 million.

The Hollywood Reporter brings word tonight that Captain Marvel 2 is now in development with the writer of WandaVision penning the script.
The Saw franchise has been around since 2004, and like the vast majority of long-running horror brands, the law of diminishing returns set in a long time ago. The first installment is still the most fondly-remembered of them all, and brought something different to the genre when graphically-violent ‘torture porn’ was still all the rage, before the series focused more on the elaborate and gruesome traps cooked up by Tobin Bell’s Jigsaw as the main selling point.
Get ready, True Believers, because Black Widow is officially hitting cinemas in exactly 100 days! We haven’t had an MCU movie since last July, and we’ve still got another few months to go yet, but this abnormally-long gap between Marvel films is shrinking, as the counter will be on double digits from tomorrow. And to celebrate, the studio has dropped this new short promo, promising that Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff is on her way.
Robert Englund finally explains the story behind his supposed Star Wars audition all those years ago and sets the record straight.
With all of the recent news that followed in the wake of the recently-released Morbius trailer, which sparked all kinds of online debate about whether or not Sony’s Marvel movies will tie into the MCU, how Spider-Man will fit into both cinematic universes and whether or not the studio is already building towards a Sinister Six spinoff, you would be forgiven for not noticing that Venom 2 is set to hit theaters just three months after the Living Vampire makes his big screen debut.
