Dolph Lundgren is the perfect casting to play the Atlantean King Nereus in #JamesWan's adaptation of #Aquaman. With a long list of formidable characters under his belt, the strong and fearsome king of the deep will be a swim in the park for Dolph's commanding stage presence.
The origin of Wonder Woman is not your typical tale and needs to be told. In today’s society, women’s rights, value, and strengths are rightly accepted to be equal to men. In the 1940s the idea of a strong, confident, sexual woman was not an image readily promoted in society. William Moulton Marston's vision of a new Amazonian comic book character changed all of that with the creation of Wonder Woman.
Believe it or not, it's now been a year since we received the extended cut of Suicide Squad. While some fans were satisfied, others are still a bit peeved over the lack of screen time for Jared Leto's version of the Joker. If you're one of those fans who are still feeling like you wanted more from Suicide Squad, it might be time for you to hop onto Amazon and pick up a book that will no doubt fill in a lot of gaps. Longtime DC Comics writer Marv Wolfman adapted Suicide Squad director David Ayer's original script to give us "Suicide Squad: The Official Movie Novelization." And yes, it is better than either version of the movie.
Harley Quinn is no doubt one of the brightest stars in Suicide Squad. As a character, she's manipulative, funny, psychotic, and unpredictable ... which is exactly how Harley should be. Margot Robbie really knocked it out of the park with her performance as the former psychiatrist turned criminal sidekick.
The problem with Justice League and the problem with the entirety of the DC cinematic universe is the vision of Zach Snyder. I realize that laying the blame for what many perceive as a significant failure on one person is a little unfair, but hear me out. I like the movies that Zach Snyder has made in this universe. I like Justice League but the fact of the matter, for me, is that these movies fail to transcend into being truly great movies because Zach Snyder isn’t a great director, just a pretty good one.
Don't get me wrong, superheroes are cool and all, but come on! Who doesn't love the bad guy? Villains have the most introspective and oftentimes interesting stories associated with them, and for good reason.
When Ben Affleck signed on to be a part of the DC Extended Universe, he became a pivotal cog in the entire production of the cinematic universe, not only as the next iteration of the Dark Knight himself. With a massive role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice the once-penned-sequel to Man of Steel, along with major production roles behind the camera as producer to Justice League and writer/director/star in his own solo film, Affleck seemed as though he was ascending into the upper echelon of Hollywood elites.
