Harley Quinn Is In Ready Player One??? Plus, More Easter Eggs From Trailer!

7 hours ago

This morning at the Warner Bros. Hall H panel, Steven Spielberg unveiled the first trailer for Ready Player One to the audience.  The movie is based off the popular novel written by Ernest Cline that follows a young man on a scavenger hunt to win a massive prize.  The hunt takes place in a virtual reality where characters and artifacts in pop culture appear.  Throughout the trailer there were some Easter eggs dropped of the characters and artifacts we will see. The obvious one that everyone saw and cheered about was the Delorean from Back To The Future, but there were several more you may have missed. Take a look below at the others we noticed throughout the trailer.

Harley Quinn and Deathstroke

30 seconds into the trailer we see the main character, Wade Watts, put on his homemade virtual reality headset and go into the Oasis.  We see Wade walking »

The Latest Thor: Ragnarok Trailer Is Here And It's Awesome!

22 hours ago

Not too long ago everyone in Hall H got the first glimpse of the latest Thor: Ragnarok trailer and now Marvel Studios has released the trailer along with the movie poster.  Expanding further on the teaser trailer that was released earlier we see the new duo of Thor and Hulk team up to save Asgard.  After watching this trailer, this movie has a very different tone and style than the previous two Thor movies.  After seeing this trailer, I think that this may end up being my favorite Marvel movie.  What do you all think?  Let us know in the comment section below.

In Marvel StudiosThor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok--the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization--at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, »

Stranger Things Season 2 Comic-Con Trailer Is Another Nostalgia-Fest

22 July 2017 4:44 PM, PDT

If you’ve somehow managed not to hear about it, Stranger Things was a surprise hit last year from Netflix. In addition to being a great story, it was buoyed by memorable doses of nostalgia. From the wood paneling on the walls to the synthesized score and nods to classics like Close Encounters of the Third Kind, it was a wonderful trip down memory lane for those growing up in the period. With its second season, the show was tasked with the difficult job of pushing the story in bold new directions without losing what made it special. Far too easy is it for a show to lose its way, but if the new trailer from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con is any indication, it’ll be well worth the wait.

Below is the synopsis for Season 2 of Stranger Things:

“It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are »

DC's New Ongoing Title To Feature Duke Thomas Aka The Signal - Sdcc 2017

22 July 2017 4:20 PM, PDT

The announcements continue to roll out for DC Comics during several of their panels here at San Diego Comic-Con. During their Dark Nights: Metal and Dark Matter panel they announced another new ongoing series coming soon featuring Duke Thomas called Batman: The Signal and it will be written by DC Talent Workshop alum Tony Patrick.

Duke Thomas had made his debut in DC Comics New 52 Batman #21 during an arc called Zero Year where he assisted Batman. Then during the arc called Endgame, the Joker kidnapped Duke's family and used them to try and recreate Bruce Wayne's parents' murder right in front of him. Batman managed to save Duke, but Duke's parents unfortunately were lost to the Joker's gas. Later he became part of the group of Robins during the time that Bruce Wayne was gone. When DC launched Rebirth Batman had returned and offered Duke a position, »

Creed 2: Ivan Drago Confirmed For Sequel

22 July 2017 3:35 PM, PDT

Not too long ago, good ol’ Sylvester Stallone took to social media to post a cryptic photo of Ivan Drago from Rocky IV. In the picture, he looked to be standing toe to toe with the young Adonis Creed. It came with the message “sins of the father,” which would seem to imply that Drago would be returning, and that Creed may be taking on the former foe’s son.

Today, Stallone took to Instagram once again to share the progress of the script. In the photo, we see, Stallone’s handwritten script (which is woefully illegible), and in a caption, he confirms Drago’s involvement in the story.

Check it out below:

Just Done .... if you are curious , around 439 handwritten pages translates into about a 120 page typed screenplay ...#writers cramp #rockybalboa #drago #adoniscreed #MGM

If you’ll recall, Drago is the man responsible for the death of Rocky’s friend and Adonis’ father, »

The Flash Movie Reported To Introduce Flashpoint - San Diego Comic-Con 2017

22 July 2017 2:40 PM, PDT

Today, at the San Diego Comic-Con, several logos were shown which would give the audience a general direction of the DC films. Much to the crowd's surprise, when The Flash came up it displayed a very well known (to comic readers) image of the Flashpoint logo. This has several ramifications, including the future of the Batman character.

If you do not know, in the comic, the animated film, or the CW version of Flashpoint, The Flash, basically against his own moral objections, went back into time and saved his mother from being killed by his arch-nemesis, the Reverse-Flash. Of course, this was actually The Reverse-Flash's plan all along, as he is a master of manipulation, and it set the future into a whole new setting, mainly where Barry Allen (The Flash) did not have powers.

Luckily, after trials and tribulations, Barry was able to get Batman's help, but this »

Warner Bros. Shows Off Logos For Upcoming DC Films…Which Movies Are Still On The Way?

22 July 2017 2:08 PM, PDT

The DC Extended Universe has been a tough beast to follow. A couple years back, they released a multi-film slate that extended through around 2020. It seemed overly ambitious at the time, and it seems like that may have indeed been the case. They counted their eggs before they hatched, and after seeing how these films performed, were faced with the reality that they would need to change course after the first few films. It became clear that after Justice League, things would be changing.

The studio has spent the past year developing several projects — these included sequels and spinoffs of successful films, and standalones for superheroes that have yet to see the light of day on the big screen. But given that we have no idea what the current status is of their slate, how many of these movies are actually set to actually hit the big screen?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi New Promotional Image Shows Off New Character

22 July 2017 1:45 PM, PDT

The countdown to the second installment of LucasFilm’s new Star Wars trilogy continues. The Last Jedi will be in theaters in just a few short months. Lucasfilm, as secretive as always, has not been forthcoming with many details. While The Last Jedi has no official presence at Sdcc we do have a new promotional image. A close up shot of Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley), and one of the better looks at the new character Rose, who is played by Kelly Marie Tran.

In the photo, Finn can be seen wearing the jacket of Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron, who curiously is not featured in the photo. Rey adorns a smoky gray outfit and is holding Luke’s old lightsaber, positioned in a fighting stance. Kelly Marie Tran’s character, Rose, is also shown, and is thought to be a maintenance worker in the resistance.

Justice League Sdcc Trailer Shows A Post-Superman World

22 July 2017 1:11 PM, PDT

Today in Hall H, Warner Bros. presented a new, extensive four-minute sneak peek of their upcoming film Justice League to a crazy huge audience (seriously, hundreds of attendees with wristbands were turned away). Luckily for everyone else, they also took to YouTube to post the trailer for all to see.

Justice League has been an interesting film to follow. Some fans have been unconvinced of its quality. Since the release of Batman v Superman, negative rumors have followed the production. From rumors of extensive reshoots to the departure of director Zack Snyder, it's a film that has seemingly faced every obstacle in the book.

Ben Affleck Addresses Batman Concerns: ‘I Am The Luckiest Guy In The World’

22 July 2017 12:48 PM, PDT

Actor Ben Affleck certainly seems to be taking the world for a ride. For the longest time, he was rumored to be helming a standalone Batman film, and when it was finally officially announced, he only seemed to distance himself even further. All of a sudden, on the heels of the less than stellar reception of Batman v Superman, he seemed to be backpedaling. 

Earlier this year, he stepped down as director of The Batman, and Matt Reeves took his place. But Affleck was still officially on board as Batman and Bruce Wayne. Earlier this week, we reported on a new rumor that Affleck was looking for a way out of the universe, and that DC was planning a way to go forward with The Batman without him.

Why Spielberg Joined Ready Player One, And Why It’s So Complex

22 July 2017 12:11 PM, PDT

It’s no easy feat making a movie, as evidenced by the countless terrible films out there. While it’s easy to criticize everything under the sun, the reality is that the process is like threading a needle, and there are countless places for things to go wrong. When adapting a known property, like Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One, that problem is amplified, as you then also have to worry about a fanbase’s reaction to said property.

Ready Player One has yet another layer of complications added to that. Not only is the plot incredibly dense, but it’s packed with references to old-school pop culture. During the Warner Bros. Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, screenwriter Zak Penn expressed how difficult it was to adapt such material for the flick.

“This was definitely the most complex movie I’ve ever worked on. There’s so much material. »

Wonder Woman 2 Script Currently Being Written By Geoff Johns

22 July 2017 11:27 AM, PDT

It’s no secret that Wonder Woman was a huge success for Warner Bros. Surprisingly enough, the studio seemed ill-prepared for how much of a success it would be, and didn’t have a script or story ready to go for the sequel. So unprepared were they that they didn’t even get Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins on board for the sequel.

When last we heard, Jenkins and DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns were hard at work at writing the treatment for the flick, and ahead of the San Diego Comic-Con panel, Johns revealed that they had moved forward to the next stage.

Speaking with Yahoo! Movies, he said:

“I’m working right now on the Wonder Woman 2 script. I just started.”

As of right now, there is no release date for Wonder Woman 2, but Warner Bros. recently locked down two mystery movie dates for 2020, so it’s »

New Justice League Poster Looks Like An Alex Ross Painting

22 July 2017 11:00 AM, PDT

Today is a big day for Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Universe. After a bit of a mixed year for them (Wonder Woman was a huge success, but behind-the-scenes drama seems to be plaguing their productions), they could use a successful Hall H panel to show that they have more going on than another solid Wonder Woman movie.

While it remains to be seen whether or not they’ll be able to deliver, the official Justice League Twitter account posted a new poster that some comic book fans may appreciate.

Check it out below:

On a surface level, it may look a bit odd, but some fans may note that it resembles an Alex Ross painting. With it’s lighting, and the positioning of their faces, they very much look like the look of the heroes you’d see in his lineup. Admittedly, it’s not a poster that »

DC Extended Universe: Did Jason Momoa Tease A Big Announcement From Warner Bros?

22 July 2017 10:14 AM, PDT

The DC Extended Universe didn’t exactly start off on the right foot — and no, I’m not talking about Man of Steel or Batman v Superman. I’m talking about Green Lantern. In the midst of Marvel’s growing Cinematic Universe, Green Lantern hit theaters, and it seemed as though Warner Bros. was interested in establishing their own world they could similarly exploit. But we now know that wouldn’t end up being the case.

Green Lantern was a total failure on every level, and the film garnered so much hate that it set things back a bit for their world. Now, it’s been unclear just how long the studio plans on waiting until they introduce an actual Green Lantern character. A couple years back, when announcing their slate, they had Green Lantern Corps on the list, but being such a key member of the Justice League, it »

Spawn Movie Getting Produced By Blumhouse

22 July 2017 9:50 AM, PDT

You know it’s been about six months or so when you start hearing Spawn news. Every six months for the past few years, comic book artist Todd McFarlane announces some progress has been made in the long in-development Spawn film. 

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con we got yet another update from McFarlane via a Facebook update. While it’d be easy to dismiss this yet again, it sounds like the project may finally be making some Real progress. In the update, not only will he be directing the flick, but that Jason Blum of Blumhouse productions would be producing it.

While this is still a far cry from actually seeing the movie in theaters, it’s certainly a step in the right direction. I’m especially excited by Blumhouse’s involvement. Over the past few years, they’ve done an amazing job creating low budget high concept horror flicks, »

Harley Quinn vs. The Joker Film In Development At Warner Bros.

22 July 2017 8:20 AM, PDT

Warner Bros. certainly seems to be working towards capitalizing on the success of Harley Quinn. While Suicide Squad may have been received negatively by critics, there’s no denying two things: the film made some real cash money, and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was a big hit with fans. Warner Bros. has already started development on two films that may further utilize her.

The first Harley Quinn-led film is Gotham City Sirens, and the second is Suicide Squad 2 (we still don’t know for sure if Harley will be in it). It sounds like Warner Bros. is aiming for a trifecta of villain-led films. According to a new report from Screen Rant, they are hard at work at a Harley Quinn vs. the Joker film. As of right now, that’s supposedly only the working title, and there are no plot details.

It’s very possible that Warner Bros. »
