Captain Cold Comes to The Flash

wentworth millerThe CW‘s The Flash has added a villain. Executive Producer Greg Berlanti has announced that actor Wentworth Miller will be joining the series playing Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold. Miller is most known for his role on the series Prison Break. Captain Cold is a rather iconic villain and one of the Flash’s signature ones, especially as the leader of the band of villains known as The Rogues.

So far Miller is only set for one episode, but his character and his Rogue compatriots play too much of a role in the Flash’s world to not be in more. The pilot features his fellow Rogue Weather Wizard. Expect to see more of them to show  up.

It’ll be interesting to see the take on the character as he’s played both villain and recently the role of hero. I’m expecting the classic villain.

Batman 1989′s Preview Video

The creation of 1989′s Batman wasn’t as easy as you’d think it was. In an interview with fansite 1989Batman.com, the above short’s director Andrew Gillman states that Warner Bros. found itself in a “difficult situation” after taking on the new Batman film.

Warner Brothers had found themselves in a very difficult situation at the time. The marketing director at Warner told me that Adam West had been going to various media outlets stating that he should be Batman, that his Batman was the only true Batman, and that this dark thing that Warner was doing had nothing to do with Batman at all. This caused a problem for Warner Brothers because it created doubts in the minds of the film distributors and merchandisers around the world.

Warner Bros. had to pitch the movie, and the result is what you see. A nice piece of Batman film history to celebrate this film which debuted 25 years ago today.

Rumor of DC’s Movie Line-up. Take it With a Grain of Salt.

Justice League RevampThe rumor mill was churning today, with news being passed along like a bad game of telephone. A report today came out from Nikki Finke, former Deadline honcho, claims to list DC‘s upcoming movies through 2018.

May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2

 

 

 

 

There had been talk of a Metal Men and Suicide Squad movie for sometime in 2016 but that project fell off the schedule.

Finke claims to late start to Batman V Superman is due to DC attempting to get this all settled down.

There’s numerous reasons I expect this all to be bullshit and click bait. One is, it ignores projects we’ve been told are being worked on, like the Justice League Dark film. The second big reason I don’t believe this is the history. It was about this time last year that it was rumored Cable, X-Force, Deadpool, Aquaman, the Flash, and Wonder Woman were all being announced as movies at SDCC 2013. We all know how that turned out.

While I’m sure DC is putting a plan together, I’ll believe this when I hear it directly from DC.
