Warner Bros Changing Directions With DC Films

Published

on

After the disappointing box numbers from Justice League, Warner brothers have made some sweep changes to their creative teams. Warner Bros attempted to fast track their DC cinematic universe to match Marvel and the approach has backfired.

Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara says he wants DC Films to find their own identity, rather than copying Marvel.

“Warner Bros needs to continue doing what it’s always done: producing the biggest, most diverse slate in the business. That’s what’s made us successful. We can’t do what Disney’s done. It’s worked really, really well for them, but it’s not who we are. We need to continue to create a balanced slate of all types of movies and all genres,” Tsujihara said.

Warner Bros also admitted to the misguided decision not include Superman in the marketing campaign.

“The bizarre decision not to have Superman included in the marketing stopped ‘Justice League’ from potentially hitting $100 million opening weekend,” said one insider to the Wrap.

Justice League will earn $96 million in its opening weekend. By comparison, Man of Steel opened to $116.6 million, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earned $166 million in its first weekend, Suicide Squad earned $133.7 million in its opening weekend, and Wonder Woman has a record-breaking $103.2 million opening weekend.

Published

on

The long-rumored Space Jam sequel finally has been greenlit.

Lebron James will star and produce the film with Black Panther director Ryan Coogler. Warner Bros has the film slated for a 2019 release.

“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” says James, “It’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”

Michael B. Jordan Says Creed II Is About More Than Revenge

Published

on

Michael B. Jordan is ready to entire the ring again in Creed II.

In the sequel, Adonis Creed will go toe to toe against the son of Ivan Drago. Jordan spoke about Victor Drago’s motivation in the film.

“Victor’s storyline is very layered,” Jordan told the Toronto Sun. “The two guys are similar in a lot of ways…Adonis feels, naturally, a certain animosity towards Viktor and Ivan, and then there are other themes in there: the maturity of growth, the importance of family, of legacy, is what makes Creed so special. It’s not just about revenge.”

When asked if he would be willing to carry on as Adonis Creed for four decades, similar to Stallone, Jordan said he’s definitely up for it.

“If I’m lucky. I want to keep making them as long as they’re good,” he said. “I always want to keep my finger on the pulse. Forty two years, I mean, who knows?”
