Rumor: Live-Action Zatanna Movie In The Works
According to DCEU Mythic, Warner Bros. Picture is reportedly in the process of developing a new live-action DC film which is rumored to be centered around magic-wielding superhero Zatanna Zatara. Despite being one of the main characters in the popular animated film Justice League Dark, the outlet notes that this movie is separate from Bad Robot’s previously announced project about the team. If this new project would be proven true, this will mark Zatanna’s live-action DCEU film debut and first-ever solo outing.
Created by Gardner Fox and Murphy Anderson, Zatanna Zatara made her first appearance in Hawkman #4 in November 1964. She is the daughter of a famous stage magician named Giovanni Zatara, who have debuted during the Golden Age of Comics. Naturally, Zatanna inherited his father’s magical powers and career as a professional stage magician. Some of her cool powers are the ability to control the elements, telekinesis, telepathy, teleportation, and manipulation of reality.
The Boys Season 1 Blooper Reel Released
Amazon has unveiled to fans a profanity-filled and hilarity-fueled blooper reel from the first season of the adaptation of Garth Ennis’ The Boys.
In Season 2, The Boys are on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social-media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.
Series co-creator Eric Kripke refers to the second season as “crazier, stranger, more intense, more emotional. In fact, it’s too much, so the Surgeon General has insisted we air the first three episodes on September 4, then air the remaining five episodes weekly after that. We wanted to give you time to freak out, digest, discuss, come down from the high before we give you another dose.”
Ron Howard Confirms Willow 2 Is Still In Development For Disney+
In a recent Q&A event by The Bearded Trio, when asked about the previously announced spinoff series for the iconic 80s’ film Willow, Oscar-winning filmmaker Ron Howard honestly answered that he can’t really reveal any big announcements about the potential series but he did confirm that the sequel is still currently in development.
“Well, if I say anything too concrete it’s gonna go viral because anytime I say anything about Willow, people take it all very seriously,” Howard said (via JoBlo). “I will say that, let’s see…what can I say? It’s still in development. It doesn’t have a green light. Warwick Davis is thrilled by it and if we are lucky enough for it to go, he would come back as Willow.”
He also revealed they have already started scouting for filming locations in the UK with scripts still being developed. “We are far enough along that in a very tentative way, locations are beginning to be scouted, and we don’t know where we’re going to shoot, but we have gotten some research photos back from Wales. It’s nice to think about where our old knock bar was, and again no idea if we’re gonna get to make the show but we’re having a wonderful time developing the scripts under Jonathan Kasdan who is leading the charge.”
An American Pickle Trailer Released
HBO Max has released the official trailer for director Brandon Tost’s forthcoming comedy film adaptation of An American Pickle, providing us with our first look at Seth Rogen as he portrays two identical characters who are both from different timelines. The film will be available for streaming on August 6, 2020.
An American Pickle is an adaptation of the 2013 New Yorker novella Sell Out by Simon Rich, who adapted his own script. Brandon Trost, the cinematographer of Rogen films This Is the End, Neighbors, and The Interview, will direct.
Rogen will star in dual leading roles in the film. Rogen will play Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling laborer who immigrated to America in 1920 with dreams of building a better life for his beloved family. One day, while working at his factory job, he falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for 100 years. The brine preserves him perfectly and when he emerges in present-day Brooklyn, he finds that he hasn’t aged a day. But when he seeks out his family, he is troubled to learn that his only surviving relative is his great-grandson, Ben Greenbaum (also played by Rogen), a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can’t even begin to understand.
