Following Jared Leto’s surprising return as Joker in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Collider brings word that another casting addition has been made for the long-awaited Snyder Cut with Joe Manganiello set to reprise his role as Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke. His return for the reshoots might potentially indicate that Deathstroke will now have a much longer screen time, compared to his brief appearance during the post-credits scene in 2017’s Justice League. Manganiello and Leto will reportedly be joining Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, and Amber Heard for the four-episode HBO Max miniseries’ reshoots that are currently underway.
Makes sense that Zack Snyder would ask, though. The worst that’d happen is they’d say “No,” right?
“There’s not going to be any reshoots of any kind with any actors,” Gonzalez said. “It’s just additional dialogue. Here’s something that hasn’t been reported yet: (Snyder) did want to shoot and he wanted to do additional photography but HBO Max said no, that’s not happening. We’ll give you money for post-production, for special effects, for scoring, and even ADR but no reshoots of any kind on this movie.”
Coming out in 2022. That’s pretty much it, except that it’s Ezra Miller from JUSTICE LEAGUE as Barry Allen. I’m… down with that, I think. It is one of the aggravating things about the DCEU movies that I liked the individual superhero actors just fine, and that included Miller. As long as we don’t have to have a stupid origin story (dude’s fast. There you go), I figure that they can make a decent movie out of the Flash’s struggle to figure out what the hell he’s supposed to do with all this speed, anyway.
Honestly, they’re doing a better job with the standalone flicks anyway.
Not gonna lie, here. There’s one point in the HARLEY QUINN trailer (NSFW) when I laughed out loud when I realized what had happened. Can’t watch it, wouldn’t watch it, absolutely won’t have it around the kids — but I laughed. Because there’s some things you just don’t do in a super-battle, and what happened there was at the top of the list.
It’s been two weeks since Shazam! came out, after all. If you haven’t seen this movie (go see this movie) yet, you either don’t care about spoilers or you can stop reading at this point, because there’s gonna be a spoiler or two. Fair warning, and all that.
I was wondering why I hadn’t seen much on Swamp Thing before, until I realized that it’s for their DC streaming service.
It has… potential. Although it’s fairly obvious why DC decided to release it in-house, rather than shop it around. The combination of ‘slightly obscure’ and ‘straight up creeping horror’ is maybe a bit much for the networks to sustain, and they’ve got an existing platform to use. So that may work out for them.
Will I see Swamp Thing? Only if I subscribe to the DC Universe service. I’ve yet to be convinced that I should.
I fully plan to talk about Shazam! after that, because I have opinions about this movie and I want to give them. Before then, I absolutely encourage people to go see this flick. It is very nice, and at times even sweet, and I liked the direction where it went. DC shouldn’t make every superhero movie like this, but it’s smart that they made room for it.
PS: Shazam! would reduce the Justice League Lex Luthor to impotent incoherence within five minutes, tops. …And now I want to see that happen. I want this so, so badly.
