It is no surprise that Wonder Woman was this weekend’s top grossing film grossing a whopping $223 million dollars!

Wonder Woman surpassed everyone’s expectations as is being hailed as one of the greatest superhero films to date and the best film the DC Cinematic Universe has released to date. Even more impressive, however, are the records the film has broken. As of now it is the biggest opening for a female director ever! This breaks a glass ceiling in Hollywood and will definitely open opportunities for female directors in the action genre.

“X-Men Spinoff, “New Mutants'” Movie Cast Sunspot & Moonstar, Amidst Accusations of Whitewashing!

The movie world of Marvel Comics’ X-Men continues to grow as Fox has decided to explore the other X-Teams (splinter teams of mutants related to the X-Men) and more mutant heroes. One of which has been The New Mutants. The film is set to be released on Apri 13, 2018, and it looks like the most of the cast has been found.

Recently, however, two more important roles, those of Sunspot and Moonstar have cast with Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why) and newcomer, Blu Hunt!

As you may already know Roberto Da Costa, AKA “Sunspot” is a mutant with the ability to absorb solar energy, to augment his strength, fly, and fire intense heat. His skin is blackened in the process, hence his code name. Moonstar AKA “Danielle ‘Dani’ Moonstar”, originally called “Mirage” in the comics, is a psychic mutant who can create telepathic illusions of her enemies fears and desires. Eventually she is able to harness her psychic energy into powerful arrows that can harm others similar to Psylocke’s “psychic dagger.” Moonstar is also an excellent fighter. Moonstar’s inclusion on the cast is not only critical to the source material of the movie, but the plot of the film as the director has stated the film will be a horror story of sorts, based off the New Mutants’ Demon Bear story line.

The highly anticipated superhero film has received an amazing, and surprising, 96% from the film critic site which is highly coveted!

It looks like Warner Bros. finally got it together behind the scenes and are delivering some serious storytelling when it comes to The Amazon Princess. This means we are going to see a lot more female superheroes on the Big Screen and makes this film the highest rated female-led superhero to date!

The DC Cinematic Universe is rapidly expanding! It jump-started with Man of Steel and now includes Batman vs. Superman, Suicide Squad; the Wonder Woman solo film debuts next month, Justice League is set for this fall, and Flash, Aquaman, Batman, Shazam, and The Green Lantern Corps all have films set to be released over the next few years.

Writer/director Joss Whedon’s Batgirl should be the next DC female superhero movie to hit theaters following director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, according to a key architect of the larger DC Extended Universe. This information was brought to light over the course of the red carpet premiere event for Jenkins’ DCEU tentpole in Shanghai, ahead of the movie’s debut in Chinese theaters on June 2nd (e.g. the same day that it bows in North America).

Reports of Whedon working on a DCEU solo film for the Batgirl/Barbara Gordon character only emerged back in March of this year, though there had been reports about the character joining the DCEU via a Birds of Prey ensemble movie, prior to the announcement concerning Whedon’s project. The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron filmmaker isn’t wasting any time moving forward with his next comic book film adaptation either, based on the latest comments from DCEU producer Deborah Snyder.

As confirmed by multiple sources at the Wonder Woman Chinese red carpet event on Twitter (including, this second source), Deborah Snyder said Whedon’s Batgirl should reach theaters before the potential Wonder Woman sequel. While a 2018 theatrical release date sounds like a stretch at this stage, this suggests that 2019 is a real possibility for when Batgirl could hit theaters. Currently, the only DCEU movie officially scheduled to arrive that year is Shazam.

This is awesome news! Batgirl is definitely an icon and one of the most popular superheroes on the planet and she has been a part of the Batman mythos for over forty years. It is definitely time we see her get her own spotlight! There is no casting news for the film, but we did hear a horrible rumor that Miley Cyrus was trying on the Batgirl costume…What do you guys think of a Batgirl solo film? Will you be watching? Sound off below!

“Hellboy” Reboot Set to Be Scarier, Bloodier and More Gruesome than Ever!

Reboots are a dime a dozen these days and while there are some we could honestly do without, there are others we all have just been dying to see.

The film franchise “Hellboy” is one of them.

According to the screenwriter for the film, this reboot of Hellboy will be darker and more gruesome than the previous films.

Fans of the film franchise have been asking for a third and final installment in Guillermo del Toro’s series, which starred Ron Perlman as the titular character, for years now, and they have yet to see their wishes fulfilled. After some back and forth with everyone involved in the series, earlier this year, del Toro finally said that a third Hellboy movie ‘simply isn’t in the cards’, but that didn’t mean audiences were done with the character forever. Game of Thrones’ director Neil Marshall will be helming an R-rated reboot of the franchise based on a screenplay from Mignola, Andrew Cosby, and Christopher Golden, which will see ‘Stranger Things’ actor David Harbour taking over for Perlman as Brother Red.
