If the long-awaited official announcement of the Justice League Snyder Cut wasn’t enough, fans of the DCEU must have thought Christmas had come early twice over when it was confirmed a few days later that Henry Cavill’s Superman would also be making a return to the interconnected superhero franchise, seemingly drawing a line under the constant speculation surrounding his future.
It doesn’t seem to be a project that’s being fast-tracked right now, but as far as we know, Warner Bros. is still working on the Green Lanterns Corps movie they’ve been planning for years. The idea has always been to make this reboot of the Emerald Knights a kind of cosmic buddy-cop story, starring the most famous Lanterns, Hal Jordan and John Stewart. Various names have been linked to play Jordan over time, but what about Stewart?
Netflix is great for hot new original content. Indeed, the streaming site invests a fortune into producing their own movies and TV shows and most of the time, they knock it out of the park, with many Netflix titles going on to become global sensations (see: Stranger Things, Extraction, The Irishman and more). But the platform is also great for discovering hidden gems, with tons of licensed content getting another chance in the spotlight.
The theatrical release of Justice League rightly came under criticism for featuring one of the worst villains in the history of comic book movies thanks to Steppenwolf, but let’s not forget that Suicide Squad also boasted two antagonists that were just as bad. Both the awfully-rendered Incubus and Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress did a movie that was already butchered by studio interference absolutely no favors, and only made the troubled production zero-for-three for bad guys if Jared Leto’s Joker is also taken into account.
Almost as soon as the official confirmation of the Justice League Snyder Cut brought the two and a half year campaign to an end, the focus seemed to immediately shift straight onto the DCEU’s other notable project that was released into theaters unrecognizable from how the director had originally pitched it.
We only just got Birds of Prey earlier this year, but Margot Robbie has already got one more movie outing as Harley Quinn in the bag in the form of The Suicide Squad. There are hopes for further adventures for the Clown Princess, too. And whatever form they take, DC fans are sure praying they’ll involve Poison Ivy, as they’re desperate to see the Harley/Ivy relationship explored on the big screen.
Taking to Twitter, Chris Evans has voiced his opinion on the George Floyd incident, saying that it doesn’t surprise him at all.
Another month is now about to come to an end and that means we can all look forward to tons of fresh content coming to Netflix. Indeed, this week alone will see over 30 new movies added to the platform, many of which are big, notable titles.
Adam Sandler movies continue to dominate on Netflix, proving that subscribers just can’t get enough of the beloved actor and his work.
Marvel Studios have had the rights to Ghost Rider since 2013, but they’ve seemingly had little interest in rebooting the character as part of the MCU. The Robbie Reyes version showed up in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4, with star Gabriel Luna initially set to return to the role in a spinoff show on Hulu, but that got the axe last year.
