SUPES' TRUNKS ARE BACK FOR ACTION #1000!01/19/18 @ 1:09 pm EST
Wonder Woman’s next adventure may be just over the horizon.
Rumor has it that the sequel to DC Films’ Wonder Woman
will be announced this Saturday at Comic-Con International: San Diego during the Warner Bros. Hall H presentation.
The decision to announce has not quite been finalized yet but, if “all goes as planned,” the sequel will be announced with Wonder Woman
director Patty Jenkins returning to direct, according to The Hollywood Reporter. If things don’t go “as planned,” it could be inferred that Jenkins hasn’t yet signed on the dotted line.
Warner Bros. hasn't commented officially on the sequel to Wonder Woman
, but rumors are already swirling concerning where and when the movie will take place and who the villains may be.

'DAREDEVIL' FILMING IN MANHATTAN MONDAY01/19/18 @ 12:23 pm EST
During the recent TCA press tour, /Film
talked with writer Justin Marks on his screenplay for the developing live-action "Jungle Book" sequel.
“In the second film, the idea is to go further through the [Rudyard] Kipling [material] but also go into some of the Disney resources from the ’67 film that maybe didn’t get to see the light of day in the first film,” Marks said. “If you look back to Bill Peet’s work on the original film, some of which was thrown out by Walt Disney, Jon [Favreau] and I really dove deep into the Disney archives to see some of the ideas. We were like, ‘Wait, that’s a great idea. We really need that in the film.’ So we’ve built it out like that.
“There is so much more Kipling to adapt,” Marks continued. “I just finished a draft of it quite recently. Even in the first film, we really looked to the other Kipling stories for inspiration, The Elephant and the history and the mythology and the creation of the jungle.”
"The Jungle Book 2" doesn’t have a release date yet.

NEW 'ARROW' CLIP RELEASED01/18/18 @ 8:43 pm EST
Peter Wyngarde, the actor best known for roles on "Jason King," "Doctor Who" and "Flash Gordon," has passed away. He was 90.
The BBC reported that the actor had died at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London following a long illness.
Besides his genre work, Wyngarde appeared in Robert Rossen’s "Alexander the Great" (which starred Richard Burton) and Jack Clayton’s horror classic "The Innocents." Wyngarde (and Jason King) was a partial inspiration for the character of Austin Powers, a pastiche of '60s and '70s British spies.
Few know that Wyngarde has an unexpected comics legacy thanks to former "X-Men" artist John Byrne's affection for the British TV series "The Avengers": The X-Men villain Jason Wyngarde (Mastermind) was partially inspired by Jason King and Peter Wyngarde. (via ComicBook
)DF News offers its most sincere condolences to Mr. Wyngarde's family, friends and fans.

Source: The Wrap | Categories: DC | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment
is reporting that “This is Us” actor Ron Cephas Jones is in talks to play the Wizard in New Line’s DC film “SHAZAM!”
According to the comics origin of the former Captain Marvel, now called simply Shazam, it is the Wizard who lights up the spark of magic that transforms a teenage Billy Batson (Asher Angel) into a fully adult-sized hero (Zachary Levi).
The key, as all Gomer Pyle fans know, is having Billy say the word "SHAZAM," an acronym for the gods and heroes whose attributes the youth takes on: the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury.
“SHAZAM!” starts production next month ahead of a release on April 5, 2019.
