Jake Johnson may have to duck out of Jurassic World: Dominion. Amazon and Blumhouse are teaming up for a series of special horror films. Peacock has landed itself a mystical martial arts series based on Fonda Lee’s Green Bone saga. Plus, the CW has more comic book shows to give comic book posters to, and what’s to come on NOS4A2. Spoilers, away!
I was getting ready to go out and then this pandemic hit and so everything got pushed and the schedule got rearranged. And now we’re trying to figure it out because obviously I’m in Stumptown and we’re going into Season 2 of that. So we’re figuring out the scheduling and how and if we can make it work. But Colin Trevorrow, the director, is a good friend, we’re old friends and we’ve been talking a lot and we’re trying to figure out how to do it.
At one point I pitched that he has like a huge pony tail now and he’s got like an army jacket and he’s kind of going through some PTSD of what he lived through. I wanted the 70s glasses and he’s always smoking a cigarette, but luckily Colin said no so we’ll see what happens (laughs). I was like, ‘Man I think he should be tatted up from the ankles to the ears, he saw a dinosaur attack!’
In a recent interview with Den of Geek, co-writer Mattson Tomlin stated The Batman will explore the “soul” of Bruce Wayne.
I think that Matt Reeves as a filmmaker, if you look at any of his work, whether or not it’s Let Me In or Cloverfield or the Planet of the Apes movies, he’s always coming from a point of emotion, it’s never the big action thing. It’s always, what is this character’s soul? I think that really looking at Batman as somebody who has gone through this trauma, and then everything that he’s doing is then a reaction to that, rather than shy away from that, I think this film leans into that in some very fun and surprising ways. I think that’s all I can say without getting yelled at.
According to a new report from The Illuminerdi, Shazam 2 will begin filming in the spring of 2021.
