The first teaser for Thor: Ragnarok dropped today, and while we wait for the Vox article telling us that the use of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” is insensitive in this political climate, you can see Thor’s new cut, Jeff Goldblum being Jeff Goldblum, and an alien dude shooting an M-16. And for some reason the Hulk is using weapons. Kinda defeats the purpose of being the Hulk, no? Please don’t comment, nerds.

If you were worried you’d suffer in silence through a ridiculously long Justice League becauseZack Snyder is out here thinking he’s Peter Jackson, sorry. Shit’s gonna be long.
IMDb has listed Justice League‘s runtime as 170 minutes or 2 hours 50 minutes. That’s a good 20 minutes longer than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s theatrical cut which came in at a little more than two-and-a-half hours.
Zack Snyder claims this is just the “first cut” and The Wrap seems pretty confident it’s not since their “individual with close knowledge of the project” told them, The Watchmen was 163 minutes and Batman vs Superman was 151 and they had to add 30 mins to the “Ultimate Cut” for the movie to kinda make sense. So yeah, Justice League probably won’t be 170 minutes. It’ll be like 165 minutes. 45 minutes of that will be Snyder’s usual slo mo bukkakke and 50 minutes will probably the theater blowing on the cartridge because the video game is skipping.
The cast (minus Gal Gadot) showed up at CinemaCon. They look like they each got a different dress code in their invites.
Warner Bros. is adding Batgirl to it’s DC Extended Universe, and apparently Joss Whedon is doing everything.
Whedon is nearing a deal to write, direct, and produce an untitled Batgirl pic for Warner Bros. as part of its DC Extended Universe. No other producers are currently attached. Toby Emmerich, president and chief content officer of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, is overseeing with Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. The new project originated in the past month following a meeting between Whedon, Berg and Johns.
Before this gets trashed because they didn’t hire a woman to direct or didn’t cast a Muslim Asian to play a character named “Barbara Gordon” or because the title of the movie is “Batgirl”, let’s take a moment to be happy that a Batgirl (or whatever she identifies as) is coming to the big screen after years going through like 4 Superman’s and 47 Batman’s. We can also take a moment to realize this will probably be the first good DCEU movie since it has a director who acts like he’s directed before. Oh, and I casted it for you already. Cool thanks.
Scarlett Johansson is a far left liberal and far left liberals hate her now, but loved her back in January. Much like with their genders, the far left’s acceptance tends to be fluid (haha nailed it!). She’s was in NYC last night promoting the movie white people in NYC will boycott, because they think will help solve racism or whatever they read on Slate. She wore this dress.
I didn’t post the new Justice League trailer here because this isn’t a video game site, and I’m not doing to let DC fool me again. I will post the new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer though, because I actually laughed at some of the jokes and it has actual acting and I could tell the whole thing wasn’t shot entirely in front of a green screen. It has a shit load of Iron Man and Michael Keaton as Vulture. It looks pretty great since Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. aren’t involved in any way.

Back in December it was announced that Amy Schumer was going to play Barbie in Sony’s live-action adaptation of Mattel’s most famous toy. Amy Schumer. The one in the banner pic. That’s who Sony decided would be great as Barbie. Amy Schumer. They chose Amy Schumer to play Barbie and thought that was a good idea. I can’t stress that enough. Anyway, she dropped out of the movie, so I assume it no longer takes place in an alternate universe on Planet Tumblr.
“Sadly, I’m no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts,” the actress said in a statement to Variety. “The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I’m bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen.” “We respect and support Amy’s decision,” a spokesperson for Sony said in a statement. “We look forward to bringing Barbie to the world and sharing updates on casting and filmmakers soon.”
I’m kind of disappointed, because I was looking forward to seeing Patton Oswalt or whatever as Ken. Not sure if it’s scheduling conflicts because Barbie was supposed to get “kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough” and Amy Schumer thinks she is perfect and will have a psychotic break if you say she’s not. Amy Schumer. The one in the banner pic.
Here’s some Dove Cameron pics I forgot to post. I assume she won’t have any scheduling conflicts if Sony decides not to plus size wash the material.
In case we’ve yet to realize Hollywood is mining every successful franchise for a reboot of that money it made in the past, Warner Bros. is now planning a reboot of The Matrix. Great.
It’s still not clear what shape the project will take, but sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Warner Bros. is in the early stages of developing a relaunch of The Matrix, the iconic 1999 sci-fi movie that is considered one of the most original films in cinematic history, with Zak Penn in talks to write a treatment. Sources say there is potential interest in Michael B. Jordan to star, but much must be done before the project is ready to go.
The Matrix is horribly dated, and lets not talk about the two sequels. If they wanna save money and still make it have the same social message, just make the plot about Neo staring into his phone for two hours then having to learning karate by watching a YouTube tutorial.
