Warner Bros CEO Hints At Possible Wonder Woman Return to the Screen

wondyNew52

At an entertainment law conference this past Saturday, Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara straight out said that, “We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV.”

DUH.

Maybe he caught wind of the overwhelmingly positive response to Rainfalls fan film. I certainly hope so.

Unfortunately, the statement didn’t coincide with an announcement of any kind. But this hopefully means that Warner Bros has something in the works.  Personally, I’d like to see a movie.  DC has always considered Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman to be the three superhero icons of their universe.  It absolutely floors me that they haven’t been able to get a film project off the ground.  Bats had two or three movie franchise reboots, Supes has had three. Wonder Woman can’t get one? Fucking bullshit.  So it’s nice to hear that Tsujihara recognizes the missed opportunity here.

GODFUCKINGZILLA!!!!!

SHIVERS! FUCKING SHIVERS! Turn your speakers up to 11 and marvel at how fucking good this is!

My good friend, Mike Dent, sent me this new teaser trailer for the new Godzilla movie and HOLY FUCK!!!!! Oppenheimer’s “I am become death, destroyer of worlds” speech is frighteningly haunting as the camera slowly pans across the devastation left by what I’m assuming was an epic kaiju battle. This new Godzilla appears to be bigger than previous versions and that snout is certainly a little shorter. But the silhouette looks menacing and powerful, exactly the way he should be!

I was skeptical at first, but I am totally on board with this new Godzilla! I also kind of want Gipsy Danger to punch him in the face because crossover! It needs to happen!!!!

Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver to Appear in Age of Ultron

Though we haven’t had official word from Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson Elizabeth Olsen will be playing the Scarlet Witch in Age of Ultron. Casting of Quicksilver is still at the rumor stage, though Aaron Taylor-Johnson seems pretty likely.  I don’t know much about Olsen so I have no real opinion on the announcement. BUUUUUUUT Wanda and Pietro Maximoff are both mutants.

That’s right, I said it. MUTANTS.

As far as I know, Fox still owns the movie rights to the X-franchise which means the rights to the term “mutant.” Does this signal the possible return of X-Men to the Marvel proper universe? Or will Marvel have to come up with clever ways to refer to their abilities?  I could imagine someone saying something like, “Hey, asshole, don’t use the ‘M’ word around me” or “wow, their powers are inhuman.” Some shit like that. Although in the case of Wanda, they could just call her a magic user.  Still, they’re mutants and you can’t really get around that.

A proper Avengers vs. X-Men movie would give fandom the hardest nerd boner in the history of nerdom.

Smaug The Stupendous

“His name is Bilbo.”

My only regret is not seeing this trailer on a giant movie screen with surround sound. We finally get to hear Cumberbatch’s voice as Smaug and holy fuck, I can just imagine my seat rumbling in the theater and he speaks. Just wow!

So I’m probably reading too much into this, but I thought Thorin Bushy Brows decided that Bilbo was a bro at the end of the first film. From the sound of the trailer, it seems that Thorin Cranky Shield is all pissy with Bilbro again. Sooooo did the broship of the first one never happen? Or does Bilbro bro too hard for Thorin Smouldery Eyes? I’m sure it’s going to be amazing, but that characterization seems off to me. But like I said, I might be reading too much into a throwaway line in a trailer.

Looking forward to it, although not looking forward to the high frame rate 3D nonsense. 2D for me all the way!

Wonder Woman Fan Film Puts DC And Warner Bros to Shame

I don’t know if it’s just blatant sexism or if they just don’t know what to do with her, but I’m so terribly dismayed that Warner Bros can’t get Wonder Woman back on screen.  If that failed TV reboot is any indication, I’d say they just don’t know what to do with her.

Well, Rainfall Films is tired of waiting for someone over at Warner Bros to get their head out of their ass.  They dedicated most of 2013 to filming Wonder Woman: Rainfall.  And even though it’s a bit heavy on the slow mo for my tastes, it’s stands as a fine example of how awesome a live action Wonder Woman show or movie could be.  I love the interpretation of the costume.  It echoes the comic very well and looks absolutely badass.  I also like that she silently dispatches her assailants without any banter, though it would have been nice to see Rileah Vanderbilt get some lines.

I hope this is a wakeup call to Warner Bros to get their shit together.  We’ve got a bajillion different live action Batmen, there’s a bunch of live action Supermen, Linda Carter is getting lonely out there on Wonder Woman island.

Watch all of Mortal Kombat: Legacy II!

It’s been about two years since the original Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series dropped which I quite liked.  They spent a lot of time getting the origins out of the way so that this sequel could be more action packed.  Part of me is sad that this didn’t get a theatrical release.  I would have loved to have seen this on the big screen.  But I’m happy that it got made at all.  I feel like Legacy and Legacy II really show the potential that this franchise always had for awesome action drama.

The embeded playlist will play all ten episodes so sit back, relax, and enjoy the ass kicking!

Age of Ultron Teaser

I was pretty surprised when Marvel announced that Avengers 2 would be titled Age of Ultron. The first film teased pretty hard that the next Marvel big bad would be Thanos. But I guess we’ll be seeing Thanos face off against the Guardians of the Galaxy to make way for Henry Pym’s worst idea, although from this short teaser, I feel like they’re implying that Tony Stark had something to do with the movie version of Ultron. I looks like he’s emerging from an Iron Man helmet, but I could be seeing things.

I’ve never been a fan of Ultron so I can’t say that I’m terribly excited to see him on screen. But I’ve been liking what Marvel has been doing with their movie universe. I just hope it has nothing to do with the big ass summer comics crossover of the same name.
