Rounding Up The Week’s Superhero Movie News!


Over the past few days, a number of interesting stories relating to comic book and superhero films have hit the web. We have a pair of DC related stories, as well as a Marvel related story (one that actually ties into DC as well). It’s largely all good news too, which is always a pleasure. Sure, many may not find this sort of genre to be high art, but the movies are damn fun, so it’s well worth covering. The flicks in question range from just about to be released to in development, so there’s a nice gamut being tackled here. If you like superheroes, it’s a good day. Anyway, enough set up…on to the good stuff!

First up, we have James Gunn returning to the next Guardians of the Galaxy project. If you remember, about a year ago, he was fired after offensive tweets surfaced, dug up by online trolls. No one has wanted to take over the sequel from him, especially with Marvel still using his script. Well, apparently, months ago Gunn’s apologies were excepted and the MCU welcomed him back, though the news was only confirmed yesterday. Gunn is currently working for DC on The Suicide Squad, a reboot/sequel to Suicide Squad, so once he gets that made, he’ll head on back to party with the Guardians.

Next, Ezra Miller is so dedicated to making a Flash movie happen, he’s actually writing his own screenplay. As we see The Flash linger in development hell, his deal to play the part is winding down, so this is perhaps a final bid to remain with the character. We’ll see how DC and Warner Brothers like his take, but this could be an interesting development to take note of…

Finally, I wanted to share some Shazam! reviews, since the film is getting some really great early reactions. Here are a few:


Stay tuned for more on all of these stories as they develop!
