    Wonder Woman Pushes the DC Extended Universe to $3 Billion Worldwide

    The DC Extended Universe has now earned $3 billion at the global box office.

    The success of Wonder Woman is such that the movie is now the highest-grossing DC Extended Universe film at the domestic box office -- but this week, the Amazing Amazon helped the studio pass another benchmark that saw her working with Man of Steel and Suicide Squad, rather than being pitted against them.

    The movie has earned over $700 million at this point, despite opening lower than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and being banned in some countries due to star Gal Gadot's ties to the Israeli military.

    Man of Steel earned $668 million worldwide, while Batman v Superman took home over $873 million and Suicide Squad managed $745 million. Wonder Woman currently sits at just under $714 million.

    Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

    Those are great numbers but damn it's crazy that The Avengers movie's done a billion on their own.

    Imagine what Infinity War will do

    She would be a good fit for the role because she is only 21 and killed her role in "13 Reasons Why"

    Will ‘13 Reasons Why’ Star Katherine Langford Play The Lead In ‘Batgirl’?

    According to the Daily Mail, Langford is currently up and running against Elle Fanning and Bella Thorne for the iconic female superhero role. The publication also revealed that an artist working at Warner Brothers was asked to create a list of actresses he would recreate. Additionally, the publication claims that the official lead star for the movie will be revealed on July 20.

    In March, “Batgirl” director Joss Whedon told Variety that it is highly unlikely that they will cast a very popular lead star for “Batgirl.” “I think this is somewhere where you go and find Batgirl and then you cast her. I mean, I’m not against movie stars, they’re great, but you need somebody who is just right,” he said.

    Langford is fairly new in the industry. The Australian actress just gained fame after starring in Netflix’s teen drama, “13 Reasons Why.” In the 13-episode series, Langford played the role of Hannah Baker, a high school student who committed suicide after being bullied and raped by her schoolmates.

    Last month, Langford opened up to Deadline on what it was like landing in “13 Reasons Why” as her first and biggest break in the industry. According to the actress, she learned so much from just being cast in the series. “I think I grew as an actor because there were so many things to learn, and so many hard parts of life to play out in Hannah’s journey. One of the challenges I overcame on ‘13 Reasons Why’ was just knowing the technicalities of what it’s like to be a working actor,” she said.

    Meanwhile, Netflix has renewed “13 Reasons Why” for Season 2, and it is expected that the sequel will also have 13 episodes. The upcoming installments will focus more on the other characters’ journeys post Hannah’s death, but the lead character will still be heavily featured in the show. The series also stars Dylan Minnette as Clay Jensen, Brandon Flynn as Justin, Christian Navarro as Tony, Kate Walsh as Mrs. Baker and more. As of late, the official release date for “13 Reasons Why” hasn’t been announced yet.

    nah she looks like Alicia Silverstone. Barbara Jordan should be way more attractive than that but not too cute or hot. I used to always think that nikki cox from that old wb sitcom that was like married with children should play her but she was too hot.

    I had a dc animated marathon last night starting with son of batman and ending with justice league flashpoint. I watched son of batman and batman badblood back to back. son of batman wasn't that bad except they made slade look like a bitch. I haven't read much batman lately. does Damien still have superpowers?
    also I watched a few episodes of jlu and I remember that old superman cartoon from '88 when wonderwoman used to guest star sometimes. now wonder woman can fly were in superfriends and the old live action tv series she couldn't. how is it that wonder woman is able to fly and since she can fly why have a supergirl? she was unnecessary. justice league gods and monsters was dope also I haven't watched these movies in years.

    Matt Reeves Promises He's Making The Batman His Way

    When it comes to Batman, fans are notoriously protective of the dark knight. Bruce Wayne may be capable of taking care of himself, but DC diehards tend to go to bat for the Gotham icon to keep him far away from Hollywood flubs. So, naturally, fans are stoked to hear Matt Reeves is also standing up for Batman as he begins work on the hero’s first DCEU standalone.

    The director sat down to chat with Uproxx about his upcoming film War for the Planet of The Apes. It was there Reeves touched upon The Batman, and the director said he clearly laid out his expectations for the hero to Warner Bros. once he was contacted about the gig.

    “When I come in, what I say is, “Look. First of all, you’re asking me if I’m interested in this franchise. I am. I love this franchise. I’ve loved it since I was a kid. But here’s the way in which I’m interested in it. And if you’re not interested in it in that way, then that’s totally fine.” And the good news was, they said, “Yeah, we’re really interested in that way.””

    “I remember this on Dawn, too. There would be moments where I came in for a pitch that was a certain version of the movie, and somewhere along the way, because they didn’t know me or whatever it was, they’d say, “Why don’t we do this?” And I would just simply say, “But that’s not the movie that we talked about. That’s not the movie I want to do.” And I have to say that they always backed down when it came down to that,” Reeves continued.

    “It’s kind of the way that I’ve always done it. And here’s the thing: I’m always happy not to do something. I’m usually looking for the reason to say no.”

    When it comes to The Batman, it does not look like Reeves is willing to shunt his vision for the studio’s sake. Fans of the DCEU will remember all the reports which suggested Warner Bros. toyed with theatrical cuts for Suicide Squad and even Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Wonder Woman avoided such pandering thanks to director Patty Jenkins and her steadfast vision, and it sounds like Reeves plans to do the same as his predecessor. And, for that, DC diehards are feeling rather grateful.

    Reports are saying Matt Reeves will NOT be using the screenplay written by Geoff Johns and Ben Affleck. They will be working on a new screenplay from scratch.

    Hopefully Johns and Affleck still participate in the writing though.

    Less studio meddling is good. Reeves sounds like he knows what he wants an honestly these comic flicks need filmmakers with confidence and a vision. Plug and play makes for wack generic films.

    Justice League Star Describes Movie Version of The Flash

    Ezra Miller has been among the highlights of recent Justice League footage and already had a solid grasp on his character upon receiving the part.

    Speaking to EW, Miller described his take on Barry Allen in a nutshell, saying “He’s this really endearing, altruistic nerd. He’s the 13-year-old Metallica fan, and Metallica says, ‘We lost our drummer in a freak accident. We need you to play drums, bro!’ I don’t even have drumsticks!”

    In addition to a love of Metallica, Allen also has a soft spot for the speed force. More specifically, finding out how it works and what it can affect. In a previous interview, Miller described what Allen sees in the speed force and why it fascinates him so much.

    "Martha Graham, one of my biggest inspirations, said in a quote, 'There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening.' To me, the idea of a quickening, the idea that the whole universe as we know it is essentially this composition of things moving at different speeds is an interesting idea. So the Speed Force being the force in the sense that it's a dimensional reality that is manipulating others, almost like a gravitational wave will manipulate others. That is what's interesting for my Barry Allen."

    Flash will appear next in Justice League, which currently has a 4.17 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings. The full synopsis can be found below.

    The Batman: How Will Matt Reeves' New Script Affect The DCEU?

    The DC Extended Universe Batman solo film (tentatively known as The Batman), has been through a pretty turbulent year, with star Ben Affleck dropping out of the director's chair, amidst rumors of development troubles with Warner Bros.

    War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves is stepping in to helm The Batman, and he has made it abundantly clear in recent days that he will be making his version of a Batman movie, and that his vision will be a totally fresh take from what Affleck and DC Films head Geoff Johns had conceived with their initial version of The Batman script.

    However, many elements of The Batman were already put in place before Reeves came along, including some new characters that would be introduced, and some connections to the larger DC Extended Universe that Johns and Affleck had envisioned. So, the question now is: How Will Matt Reeves New Batman Script Affect The DCEU?

    Ben Affleck

    the-batman-matt-reeves-ben-affleck-1009742.jpg

    With all the turmoil surrounding The Batman earlier this year, rumors began to swirl that star Ben Affleck was becoming frustrated with his role in the DCEU.

    It was said that Affleck was tired of everything from creative struggles with Warner Bros. to the never ending flood of questions, rumors, and speculation surrounding his Batman role and directorial choices. When Affleck dropped out of the director's chair, even more rumor began to swirl: was this simply the first step to Affleck eventually dropping out of the Batman role altogether?

    Of course, rumors are just that: rumors. Affleck always maintained that he's still playing Batman, and Reeves recently confirmed the same, saying: "Right now, that’s what is going on. For sure."

    Deathstroke

    deathstroke-the-terminator-dceu-198311.jpg

    One of the most anticipated elements of The Batman's storyline was seeing The Dark Knight take on a rumored lineup of villains from his rogues gallery - especially the new addition of True Blood star Joe Manganiello, as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke.

    However, with this new 'start from scratch' approach Matt Reeves is taking, it's become very unclear whether Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke is still a part of The Batman's story. Back in the spring, the actor actually went on record to express his uncertainty about where things stand, saying, "Umm. Maybe. We’ll see,” when asked if he'd still be in The Batman. He has since joined Dwayne Johnson's Rampage movie, leading many to believe he's moving on from his hopes of joining the DCEU.

    Deathstroke has long been a fan-favorite anti-hero/villain of the DC Universe, and he gained a lot of prominence and exposure in recent years, thanks to things like DC Comics reboots, and DC TV universe series like Arrow. Manganiello was also one bit of DCEU casting that fans were overwhelmingly happy about, so losing him would be a major letdown.

    Tone

    the-batman-movie-fan-header-ben-affleck-1000888.jpg

    One reason that many fans were excited to see Ben Affleck taking charge both in front of and behind the camera was because the actor/writer/director had carved out a lane for himself as both a critically acclaimed and financially successful director, who specialized in telling gritty crime thriller stories (The Town, Argo), which featured some pulse-pounding action.

    Since Reeves has come onboard, fans have been wondering how the War for the Planet of the Apes director would approach The Batman from a tonal standpoint. Reeves himself has steadily affirming his planned approach to the film in press interviews, stating that he sees The Batman as a potential Noir detective story, which keeps things focused on the perspective of the main character. As he said in a recent interview:

    “What I see in Batman that I find so interesting is that, in a way, he reminds me of Caesar, in that he is a character with a really troubled past who is grappling within himself to try to do the right thing in a really imperfect world, in a corrupt world,” Reeves said. “That provides an opportunity, again, if you want to take that point-of-view storytelling — and I can imagine the story as being like a noir. The originals from the golden age were detective stories. I think if you can marry that with the personal, there’s a chance to do something very exciting.”

    Reeves has also made reference to influences like Alfred Hitchcock shaping his vision of The Batman; all in all, his take has been generally well-regarded by fans, who remember that the director's experience on films like Let Me In and the latter two chapters of the current Apes trilogy have all been darkly lavish and visually stunning character studies that would work well in a Batman context.

    DCEU Connections

    justice-league-blur-effect-229823.jpg

    One big question that must be asked at this point is this: with his desire to do a more personalized and character-focused Batman story, just how deeply is Reeves willing to connect The Batman to the larger DCEU universe?

    Geoff Johns and Ben Affleck were deeply woven into the fabric of the DCEU, as Johns has been heading up development of the cinematic universe from the start - and much more actively after the difficulties of Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad - while Affleck is on the ground level of it, as an actor as well as an architect.

    Reeves is coming from an outside position, and its unclear what the push-pull will be with Warner Bros. and DC Films regarding the obligation to include characters and potential setups that benefit the DCEU as a whole. Fans are hoping The Batman doesn't end up too isolated (like Nolan's films), or too weighed down with awkward and extraneous DCEU obligations (like Batman V Superman). There are definitely ways to balance larger connections with a more self-contained and focused storyline - see Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming for a great example.

    More Villains

    dceu-villains-alex-ross-201759.jpg

    As stated, it was originally rumored that The Batman script that Affleck and Johns came up with would feature multiple iconic villains, including Deathstroke, The Joker, and The Scarecrow. With Reeves now starting from scratch, no one knows what villain - or villains he may have in mind for the film.

    Actor Josh Gad has been steadily teasing that he could be playing the DCEU version of The Penguin - so is there any truth to that? According to Reeves: "No, no, no."

    Even Gad himself has admitted that, "...there’s no there there. The Internet just goes wild. I’m just having some fun putting things out there.”

    No matter which villains Reeves includes in his script - or who plays them - there are plenty of Batman storylines that keep things personal and focused on the Caped Crusader, while still including a nice colorful lineup of villains. "Hush" is one such storyline that hits all the marks being laid out by Reeves, in that it is, at once, a detective Noir story; a very personal story focused on both the Batman and Bruce Wayne sides of the cowl; and features an extensive lineup of Batman villains, DC Comics superheroes - as well as a compelling new villain (Hush) who is personally connected to Bruce Wayne.

    Whether Reeves is interested in a "Hush" adaptation or not, the point remains the same: we can get great Batman movie with multiple villains, without sacrificing quality.
