Slightly shockingly, Aquaman 2 is finally in the works.

Slightly, because normally this would have been green-lighted the moment Warner Bros started having difficulty hearing people because of all that MONEY.

Almost two months after opening its billion dollar hit Aquaman,Warner Bros. is starting to put the pieces together for a sequel. The studio has tapped David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, who co-wrote the first movie, to begin penning a new installment, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.  James Wan, who helmed the first movie and worked with Johnson-McGoldrick on The Conjuring 2, is making a deal to return as producer, as is Peter Safran. It is unclear at this stage whether Wan would return as director.

Ben Affleck NOT going to be Batman in 2021’s The Batman.

He’s hanging up the cowl: “Warner Bros. is dating their next rendition of Batman for June  25, 2021. This is the one that Matt Reeves has been attached to as writer and director. Ben Affleck, we hear, will not be donning the Dark Knight’s tights after playing the Caped Crusader in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Justice League and that’s because this movie will focus on a younger Bruce Wayne. “

The New ‘Shazam!’ trailer.

I like how Shazam! is playing up the he’s-a-kid bit in this one.

Other details: this is clearly meant to be Philadelphia (‘Penn City,’ and the buses are SEPTA). I’m down with that; it’s as close as New Jersey’s gonna get to its own DCEU superhero. Come to think of it: it would be absolutely hysterical if Shazam shows up in later DCEU movies. Wonder Woman and Superman would be appalled that a kid’s out there risking his life, Cyborg would probably mope, the Flash would be confused about why people are freaking out, Aquaman would probably be chill with the whole thing and get yelled at by the others accordingly — and Batman would have a plan.

They gonna make a Plastic Man movie.

Oh boy oh boy oh boy: “Classic DC Comics hero Plastic Man is getting the big-screen treatment.  Up-and-coming screenwriter Amanda Idoko has been hired to pen the script for what will be a comedic action-adventure for Warner Bros. Bob Shaye, the former co-founder of New Line-turned-producer will executive produce.”  That was half of my reaction, at least.  The other half? Well, Kevin Kulp summed it up pretty well: (more…)

Aquaman’s early showing theaters expanded.

As you might remember: Aquaman is being shown a week early to Amazon Prime members who buy a special ticket.   Wait. Did I mention this, actually?  No.  OK: Aquaman is being shown a week early to Amazon Prime members who buy a special ticket.  I already got my ticket, so there you go. (more…)

Birds of Prey update: no Batgirl, villain to be Black Mask.

Interesting. No Catwoman, either:  Birds of Prey will feature Harley Quinn, Huntress, Black Canary, and Renee Montoya, who *I* remember as the smart Gotham City cop in The New Batman Adventures but who is apparently the second Question in regular continuity (also, gay**).  According to the the gestalt of the various synopses and revelations out there, these four will be teaming up to save a child Cassandra Cain (who later grows up to be a Batgirl) from the crime boss Black Mask.  (more…)

This is not the Aquaman trailer.

It is, however, a link to some pictures from the Aquaman movie, which looks like it’s going to be drawing from the established Aquaman continuity.  …Don’t give me that look. Batman: The Brave and the Bold made Aquaman cool.  It’s perfectly all right now to know that he has a half-brother named Orm that has a Loki-like relationship with Aquaman, which is absolutely why he’s in this movie because audiences ate up the Thor-Loki sibling dynamic with a spoon*.

It ain’t really Tweet of the Day territory, but it’s interesting.
