Hm. Now this is actually a rumour I heard a week or so ago: that producer Charles Roven who has been very hands on on just about every DC superhero movie from Batman Begins on, would have his role diminished as part of the restructuring of DC Films.
[I wrote this the Monday after the movie opened, then forgot it was in my drafts folder. Since it’s doubled the Chinese box office of the first film in one week, and has yet to open in Japan, it looks like it might hit $1 Billion overseas. But not $450 Million in the U.S. Anyway, […]
Film festival award winning idea looks to evolve into feature film that reinvents the heroine.
Here’s a fun little “what if..?” to start off your new year. The mastermind behind the Academy Award nominated District 9 and the less well regarded Elysium was secretly working on his own version of an Alien sequel, at least at the conceptual stage. Blomkamp took to Twitter, via an unverified account, last night and posted […]

Marvel’s best characters (minus Ursa Major) have been assembled into a team for a series of bizarre webisodes online, for poorly-defined reasons which seem to amount to WELL WHY NOT?
Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez put Wolverine in the corner
Okay so that Allie McAmazon version of Wonder Woman didn’t work out as a TV pilot. Despite being re-elevated to Trinity Status as one of DC’s big three, Wonder Woman is still languishing in the development purgatory that so many DC characters seem to swim around in. But how’s this for an electrifying concept for Diana: a film directed by DRIVE’s kinetic stylist Nicholas Winding Refn and starring-MMA fighter-turned-actor Gina Carrano.
