Contrary to reports, Warner Bros. and DC Films’ “Justice League” has not undergone massive reshoots, multiple people with knowledge of the film tell TheWrap. “There has been no additional photography to date on ‘Justice League,’ we have planned and will shoot additional pickups early summer,” says one studio insider. “Additional photography has always been planned like most pictures in general but certainly for a tentpole of ‘Justice League’s’ size and scope,” the source continued.
Ahead of this summer’s ‘Wonder Woman’ we’ve been given a glimpse at how Diana Prince (Gal Godot) became the fearless warrior, in the Origin trailer. Similarly, ‘Wonder Woman’ will (ideally) thinly tread the origin tale before focusing on her adulthood and time fighting alongside Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor in Europe. It is, however, where the film seemingly starts, as we witness Diana grow up through the use of either flashbacks or a contextual, chronological series time-hopping scenes.
The original king of the monsters Kong is back on screens at last – but preparations are already underway for a rematch with that other challenger for his crown. ‘Godzilla Vs Kong’ is lined up to hit screens in 2020, following on from Warner Bros and Legendary’s 2014 ‘Godzilla,’ current release ‘Kong: Skull Island,’ and the upcoming ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters,’ a follow-up to the 2014 movie which is expected to see some more iconic Toho kaiju enter the fray. As The Hollywood Reporter notes, ‘Godzilla Vs Kong’ is intended to be “the culmination (at least at this point) of the company’s series of movies featuring silver screen super species,” so all concerned are naturally keen to get it just right.
Disney is the worst of the ‘big seven’ major studios for hiring black directors, according to a new study. The University of Southern California’s Annenberg’s Media, Diversity & Social Change Initiative has found that the studio employed not one black director for any of its biggest movies of the last decade. The study took in the 100 top-grossing movies each year from 2007 to 2016, and in terms of diversity, the studio did bring in five female directors and four Asian directors in that period.

Ben Affleck will no longer direct himself in the next solo Batman film, after deciding to step down following discussions with Warner Bros. He will however, still produce the film. Called ‘The Batman’, the film will be the first standalone Batman story in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) after Affleck’s version of the character debuted in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ last year and appeared briefly in ‘Suicide Squad’.
The fallout from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice continues to ripple through Warner Bros. Current exec vp Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, DC’s CCO who successfully launched the comics label’s foray into television, will co-run DC Films, according to multiple sources.

Director Cary Fukunaga has spoken at length on why he walked away from the long in-development big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s novel ‘It’ - and his remarks paint a fairly scathing portrait of his producers at Warner Bros and New Line Cinema. - Director Wes Craven Dies - James Wan Hints At Monster Movie - Laments of Nightmare On Elm Street Reboot Make-Up Artist Fukunaga had been attached to ‘It’ since 2012, and says he “was trying to make an unconventional horror film. They didn’t care about that. “In the first movie, what I was trying to do was an elevated horror film with actual characters. Interestingly, Fukunaga would seem to allude to Freddy Krueger when hinting at his efforts to make iconic villain Pennywise “more than just the clown, after 30 years of villains that could read the emotional minds of characters and scare them.” Memorably portrayed by Tim Curry in the 1990 TV mini-series adaptation of King’s novel, Pennywise was set to be played by Will Poulter in Fukunaga’s film, although it is unclear whether or not the actor is still on board now that the project is up in the air.
