Tyrese Gibson Wants Green Lantern Bad

According to Latino-Review, Actor Tyrese Gibson, Fast Five & Transformers, has been posting pictures of himself on Facebook and Instagram dressed as DC’s alien-powered-ring-bearing superhero Green Lantern in order to lobby himself as the John Stewart in a Green Lantern Reboot.

It would make sense for DC to pick John Stewart as Green Lantern instead of Hal Jordan in order to avoid any reboot fatigue that could be caused by 2011’s Green Lantern movie that starred Ryan Reynolds, Safe House, as Hal Jordan.

Jane Goldman Working On DC/Vertigo’s Fables Movie

According to Latino-Review, Producer David Heyman, Harry Potter films, has been announced that Writer Jane Goldman, X-Men: First Class & Kick-Ass,  has been attached to write the script for the upcoming DC/Vertigo Comics film, Fables, directed by Nikolaj Arcel. Heyman recently spoke with SpinOff Online about the project:

I’m drawn to stories about outsiders, and I think the Fables are outsiders. They’re people torn from the place where they were raised, by the Adversary,”

She went on to talk about the film’s story saying:

Our approach is that they’re people who are all separate, and how they ultimately have to form the community in order to survive. They’re all inhabiting their own little universes within this world. But they have to form this community, and that really appealed to me. I just think the characters are so vivid. And I also think the Farm is, again, very human. That’s what I like. It’s a challenging film.

Producer David Heyman talked about the Fables movie’s writer and director saying:

“Nik Arcel did a draft, and now he’s supervising Jane, who’s doing a draft. Hopefully it’ll come in and we’ll be able to move to the next stage. All these things always take longer than you want. And Fables is not easy, by any means, but I think it’ll be pretty great.”

Batman VS Superman Choreographer On Big Fight

According to Latino-Review, Guillermo Grispo, fight choreographer for upcoming superhero movie, Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice, recently spoke with Los Andes Diario’s Estilo section to talk about the movie and the big fight scene between DC’s two crime-fighting titans, Batman & Superman. Grispo was asked what it was like preparing the fights for the movie, to which he answered:

“I was fascinated. I’m telling you, for me, I like both of the characters, but Batman I really love. In 2007 I almost worked on the second part of Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, but ultimately questions about the contract were not resolved and my world collapsed. Luckily, afterwards, Zack brought Batman into this project, making it an origin of the Justice League. Which means being in charge of the entire franchise and all the sequels that will be Zack’s next projects.”

Grispo goes on to talk about how great it is to work with Directo Zack Snyder once again & then goes into more detail on what we should expect from the big battle:

“Look, at Warner Bros., they are very strict, so I can’t say much, but it’s no surprise if I say Batman and Superman come face-to-face in the movie. It’s one of the most important sequences and I was actively involved in the design of the fight: the exchange of punches and the physical movement were put together with my partner Ryan Watson.

There’s a thought that Batman has no chance, that the other [Superman] will squash him like a bug. But when you see the movie, and how it all comes out, there’s a very intelligent explanation as to why they would have a firsthand confrontation though it seems to be totally to Batman’s disadvantage.”

The fight choreographer went on to talk about how Batman will be using a different fighting style in the movie compared to past Batman movies, saying:

“Now Batman is going to fight the way I’ve always dreamed seeing him fight… he’s a character so prepared in martial arts that you can do a lot of things with him, but filmmakers usually don’t go all the way with it. Even in the last Nolan movies the action scenes aren’t very good from a technical, martial arts point of view to things like choreography, filming, bad camera movements…

But hey, don’t get me wrong, Nolan is great, my hats off to him. He makes fascinating stories, but I think that he did not pay too much attention to the fights. Those are the kind of details that Zack, being so physical himself, loves preparing. I think there’s going to be a big difference when you see these Batman fights in comparison to the previous ones.”

Possible DC Suicide Squad Spoilers/Rumors

Latino-Review has recently uploaded an article on DC’s upcoming superhero team movie, Suicide Squad, revealing possible plot details!!! GASP!!!! Apparently the website has information from two different sources featured down below.

suicide squad bulletholes

WARNING!!!! SPOILER ALERT!!!!

WARNING!!!! SPOILER ALERT!!!!

WARNING!!!! SPOILER ALERT!!!!

Source #1 reports:

Deadshot and Harley Quinn meet early when Deadshot is assassinating an inmate that is being transported from Arkham. Quinn disrupts the hit when she tries to break Joker out and both are captured and taken to Amanda Waller’s prison.

Waller has Joker moved to the prison as a means to keep Quinn in check. He spends most of the film in a cell, very much like Hannibal Lecter, until he breaks out in the end. 

Boomerang is already in the Squad and there is a contention between he and Deadshot, Deadshot killed his father.

The team is tasked on a mission to prevent ‘bio weaponry’ from being sold to Lex Luthor by a human trafficking gang. The gang is handing over the Enchantress to Luthor who it is implied wants her for magical abilities. They kidnap her and take her back to the prison where she is kept in an underground area, which has all sorts of genetic freaks imprisoned including a King Shark.

Rick Flag is there as a watchdog over Waller. The twist is his character is revealed as being in league with the villain, Rick Flag Snr at the end. (This is what I believe may have been the reason Hardy left) It is out of left field. They want the weapons that Waller has amassed.

There is a lot of action in the script but it primarily deals with Deadshot, Harley Quinn and the Joker. Flag is more of a government agent than anything else before his reveal as a villain.

Source #2 reports:

A draft of the script has been finished and is being circulated between several executives pending a rewrite. The first part of the film concerns the capture of Lawton and Harley Quinn and afterwards they are taken to a maximum-security prison run by a warden called Waller. They are implanted with explosive devices and forced to be part of a mission where they are attacking an arms dealer’s convoy. They are supposed to steal a weapon but end up capturing a woman called June, she has a split personality and her evil side is a sorceress.

Waller is tracking down and capturing every super powered hero and villain and it is implied that she is after Batman but he is not in the film, only mentioned and shown on camera footage. The film is being used as a set up for the franchises villains and not only the Suicide Squad. Belle Reve (the prison) is home to many of villains beyond the leads. The script ends with a prison riot where most of them escape, including the Joker. The Joker has a large part in the movie but doesn’t get involved in any action scene until the very end during the riot where he kills several people.

The script has been getting much praise in the studio. The rumor is Tom Hardy left because of the changes to his characters although he is in two of the main action scenes.
