In Case You’re Wondering How the Characters of AQUAMAN will Talk Underwater, Here’s Your Answer

Remember in Justice League with Mera and Aquaman had a conversation in a big bubble underwater? That was kinda silly because, as many of you already know, Atlanteans don’t need air to talk.

After fans criticized that scene and wondered if they would be doing that in the standalone Aquaman film, director James Wan teased on Twitter:

"Fret not, no 'air bubbles for dialogue' in my underwater world."

This led to a lot of speculation as to how the Wan would handle the dialogue underwater and apparently the fans have been overthinking it. While talking about the film with EW, the director made it very clear how he was going to have the characters talk underwater.

"People are overthinking it. They’re just gonna talk!"

So, the characters will speak normally while hanging out in the depths of the ocean. Wan then adds one other little detail. He says there will be a little visual effect as Atlanteans speak, and suggests sound waves.

I imagine that we'll get a little taste of this in the upcoming trailer for the film. I can't wait to see what that trailer entails! I've seen a lot of great stuff from the film, but most of the visual effects in that footage were unfinished.

Jason Momoa will be joined by Willem Dafoe as Vulko; Temuera Morrison (Green Lantern) as Tom Curry; Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables films) as Nereus; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II(The Get Down) as Black Manta; Ludi Lin (Power Rangers) as Murk; with Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring films, Watchmen) as Orm/Ocean Master; and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna. 

Aquaman will center on Aquaman as a reluctant ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis who is caught between land dwellers that are always polluting the globe and his own people who are ready to invade the surface.

Aquaman is set to be released December 21, 2018.

Honest Trailer For THE INCREDIBLES – “The Best Fantastic 4 Movie Ever Made”

We've got another great episode of Honest Trailers from Screen Junkies and this time they set their sights on Pixar's The Incredibles. With the sequel coming out this weekend, it only makes sense that they would release this now.

It's pretty crazy that it took 14 years to get a sequel to this movie, but it happened and according to those who have seen it already, the movie is a perfect sequel! You can read all the positive buzz for it here.

One of my favorite things about this Honest Trailer is how they make a point of saying that The Incredibles is the best Fantastic 4 movie that's ever been made.

I also like how they point out that the villain of Syndrome has become more relevant over time as he's a perfect prediction of today's entitled fan culture. He's a fanboy who turns against his heroes when they don't live up to his expectations... sound familiar?

John Cena and Jackie Chan are Teaming Up For the Action-Thriller PROJECT X

John Cena is replacing Sylvester Stallone in the upcoming Jackie Chan action-thriller called Project X.

The film is set at a Chinese-run oil refinery in the Middle East. Chan will play a "Chinese private security contractor who is tasked with extracting oil workers from a refinery that’s been attacked." He will team up with a former U.S. Marine played by Cena, when he learns that the attackers’ real plan is to steal the oil.

The movie is set to be directed by Scott Waugh (Need For Speed). Cena and Chan should make a good on-screen team, but I still would have liked to see the Chan and Stallone team-up. There's no word on why he's no longer involved. 

Cena has been blowing up in Hollywood recently. He's come a long way since The Marine. He just starred in the film Blockers and he's also going to be in the upcoming Bumblebee movie and another film called The Janson Directive.

The Punisher star Jon Bernthal is in negotiations to join Matt Damon and Christian Bale in Fox’s upcoming Ford vs. Ferrari movie. The movie is based on A.J. Baime’s 2010 book Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans, and it's being directed by James Mangold (Logan).

The story follows an "eccentric, determined team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary Carroll Shelby (Damon) and his British driver, Ken Miles (Bale), who are dispatched by Henry Ford II and Iacocca with the mission of building from scratch an entirely new automobile with the potential to finally defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans World Championship in France."

Bernthal will take on the role of Lee Iacocca, who spearheaded the development of the Ford Mustang. The car debuted in 1964 and it became Ford's most successful launch since the Model A.

The movie also stars Caitriona Balfe as Miles’ wife and Noah Jupe will play their son. The script comes from screenwriters Jez and John-Henry Butterworth who worked on the film Edge of Tomorrow

There's a solid team of talented individuals working on this untitled movie which means it's probably gonna be great!

Ewan McGregor Will Play Danny Torrance in Stephen King’s THE SHINING Sequel DOCTOR SLEEP

Ewan McGregor has been cast in the lead role of Danny Torrance in Warner Bros. adaptation of Stephen King's Doctor Sleep, which is a sequel to The Shining. I was wondering who they would cast in this role and McGregor is freakin' perfect! 

The film is being directed by Mike Flanagan previously directed Oculus, OuijaGerald's Game and Hush, all of which were solid movies, especially Gerald's Game which was another Stephen King story.

The studio is not only developing this sequel to The Shining, they are also developing a prequel called Overlook Hotel. The films have been in development for years, but since IT was a huge hit, they are really interested in moving forward with these.

The Shining centers on Jack Torrance, his wife Wendy, and their son Danny as they live in the haunted Overlook Hotel during the winter season to take care of it. It's there that the hotel possesses Jack and he slowly becomes possessed by the hotel and nightmarishly torments his wife and son.

Doctor Sleep takes place several years after the events that took place at the Overlook Hotel. It focuses on Jack's son Danny who is now a middle-aged man. He is still traumatized by what happened at the hotel all those years ago and he throughout his life he had to deal with anger management and alcoholism issues. However, in an effort to get his life back together, he gives up drinking and settles down in a small town in New Hampshire. It is at this point in his life where his psychic abilities start to resurface and he develops a psychic link with a 12-year-old girl named Abra Stone. Turns out this girl's life is being threatened by a tribe of paranormals who suck the energy from people. They are led by a man named Rose the Hat and Danny has to save her from them.

What do you think about McGregor taking on the role of Jack's son Danny Torrance?

New WONDER WOMAN 1984 Details Involving Cheetah, a Lynda Carter Easter Egg, and Steve Trevor Rocks a Fanny Pack

We've got a few little new details to share with you regarding Wonder Woman 1984! We saw a couple official photos recently of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Now we've learned some new details regarding Kristen Wiig's character Cheetah and a couple of other fun things that were spotted in a set photo.

First, here's the new information that was revealed involving Cheetah. This news comes from Vulture entertainment reporter Kyle Buchanan

That seems like the version of the character in the Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp's Wonder Woman: Rebirth storyline. In that story, Barbara Minerva is an archeologist who was considered Diana Prince's best friend. She ends up being cursed by the god Urzkartaga, which is what results in her transformation into Cheetah. She blames Diana for this and ends up being her enemy.

This is just speculation on the information given, but it seems like a good bet that the film's story could go in that direction. 

Then below you'll find a set photo below of Diana Prince and Steve Trevor. In that photo you can see Gal Gadot wearing a similar outfit as Lynda Carter from the original 80s series. The other funny thing that I noticed is that Steve Trevor is rocking a fanny pack! Classic 80s! 

The Director of VENOM Isn’t Ruling Out a Spider-Man Appearance in the Franchise

the-director-of-venom-isnt-ruling-out-a-spider-man-appearance-in-the-franchise-social.jpg

When it comes to if Spider-Man is appearing in the new Venom film, we've heard that he won't be in the movie and we've heard rumors that he will. We just don't know for sure! Now the director of VenomRuben Fleischer, is weighing in on the question. When asked by Empire about Spidey potentially making an appearance in the movie, Fleischer said:

"This feels very much like Venom’s movie. It’s the introduction of the character. As to where it will go in future movies, and who he’ll run across, I can’t say."

While Fleischer doesn't give a definitive answer, he's not ruling out the possibility. Yeah, it would be kinda cool to see Spider-Man show up in the film, but he's not a main part of the story, there's no reason to include him. It would pretty much just be for fan service. 

If Spider-Man did appear in Venom, it would also make things a little weird and confusing because these are two completely separate universes. It's already been made very clear that Venom will not appear in any Spider-Man or any other MCU movie. 

The more I think about it, the more I hope that Spider-Man doesn't show up in Venom. Just let Spider-Man do his thing in the MCU. appearing in a film like Venom would just seem like a step backwards for the character. Would you like to see Spider-Man show up even if it's just some kind of brief cameo?

The movie also stars Tom HollandMichelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate and Woody Harrelson. It's set to hit theaters on October 5th.

DC’s THE FLASH Movie is Said to Be Inspired By BACK TO THE FUTURE and More DC Entertainment Details

Ever since Batman v Superman was released, DC Entertainment has been on a path to making films comic book films with a lighter tone. They tried to fix that aspect of Justice League by letting Zack Snyder go and bringing in Joss Whedon, but that didn't really work out for anybody.

Wonder Woman gave the fans what they were looking for and now James Wan's upcoming Aquaman film is said to be the film that will set the DCEU on the right path. This new direction that DC Entertainment is taking now set to spill over into the solo Flash film.

A new report from THR gives us an update on The Flash film, which is being written and directed by John Francis Daly and Jonathan Goldstein (Game Night, Spider-Man: Homecoming). According to the report Back to the Future is going to be their main inspiration for the film.

The Flash, which will finally begin production in early 2019 with Ezra Miller starring, has abandoned the somber themes it had been expected to tackle. The film now has the Game Night team of John Francis Daly and Jonathan Goldstein on board, and it’s looking to Back to the Future as a touchstone.

The movie was previously said to be called Flashpoint which hinted at the story that it would tell. But, who knows if things have changed over the past few months. One thing's for sure, it's not hard to imagine a Flash movie inspired by Back to the Future. That could be fun, especially with the tone. 

There are a few other things that were revealed. The report notes that Todd Phillips and Joaquin Pheonix's Joker origin film will have a lower budget of about $55 million. It's also said that it will be released under a new brand for the darker DC films called "DC Dark" or DC Black".

They also talk a bit about the new person in charge of the DC properties at Warner Bros. His name is Walter Hamada and he is re-evaluating everything being developed and he doesn’t want to make any big movie slate announcements that stretch years out into the future. A source says:

The exec, who successfully oversaw the Conjuring movies at New Line, inherited a slate in disarray and has quietly spent months sorting through projects. “He walked into a shitshow, and he’s trying to clean it up,” says one insider familiar with the scene.

What do you think about the direction they are taking the DC films, specifically with The Flash being inspired by Back to the Future?

Evangeline Lilly Explains That AVENGERS 4 is Headed Into LOST Territory

evangeline-lilly-explains-that-avengers-4-is-headed-into-lost-territory-social.jpg

While fans continue to speculate about what will happen in Avengers 4, Evangeline Lilly opens up a bit about the film and explains that it's headed into Lost territory. When talking about how the two compare to each other, she tells NDTV:

"When I heard about Infinity War [and Avengers 4] and the direction that they’re heading, I did have this moment of realizing, oh, wow, there’s a bit of a déjà vu for me with the Lost franchise."

She goes on to talk about what fans can expect and how it will feel for them as the story continues to unfold:

"We are hitting that [Lost] season 4 space. Where everything’s about to shift, and you’re about to lose the solid ground underneath you. And [Ant-Man and the Wasp], of course, will play a part in that."

Well, that sounds like something completely crazy is going to happen! The fact she is saying this is more proof that I think Marvel is going to do something completely unexpected. Something that no one will see coming, and that's so exciting!

Jeff Goldblum Says He’d Want to Make Another FLY Movie With David Cronenberg

jeff-goldblum-says-hed-want-to-make-another-fly-movie-with-david-cronenberg-social.jpg

David Cronenberg's The Fly is one of the most grotesque films I've ever seen. I love it! But, even to this day when I watch it, I still get a little sick to my stomach. 

There is another remake of The Fly in development that is being directed by Slight helmer J.D. Dillard, but that should be scrapped for a new film that involved David Cronenberg and Jeff Goldblum

In a recent interview with Bloody-Disgusting, Goldblum says he would fully support another Fly movie and he'd even try to be involved with it if David Cronenberg was involved. He told them:

"I don’t think my character would be involved because of course I got tragically mutated with the fly and then the machine, oh boy. But maybe I show up as a grandchild of the original Seth Brundle, or Seth Brundle had a brother. Had a brother that emerges in some ways! Who knows, I don’t know but David Cronenberg was a thrill to work with. Boy, if he was involved I’d like to work with him again, I’ll tell you that."

Even if David Cronenberg didn't come back to direct a Fly movie, he and Goldblum still need to work together on some kind of film project! Hell, I would prefer that over another Fly movie! Let's get these two talents back together to make another crazy-ass movie!
