‘Wonder Woman 2’ Sets Release Date
It’s official: Gal Gadot will return for a Wonder Woman sequel, which has received a release date from Warner Bros. Wonder Woman 2, the follow-up to this year’s superhero hit, will hit theaters Dec. 13, 2019. Talks with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins to return are ongoing, and she has not officially been announced as being aboard the project. Gadot will next appear as Diana Prince in November’s Justice League, alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s Flash and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg as the DC superhero dream team. Wonder Woman is holding better than any superhero film in more than 15 years at the North American box office. It has grossed more than $389 million at the domestic box office to date and passed Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 over the weekend.
‘Justice League’ Extensive Re-shoots Causing Headaches for Star Schedules
Warner Bros. and DC are spending big money to ensure that “Justice League” builds on the creative success of “Wonder Woman” instead of serving up a “Suicide Squad”-style disappointment. The studio, which had no comment on the scheduling trouble, is spending approximately $25 million on extensive reshoots that have dragged on for roughly two months in London and Los Angeles, according to multiple insiders. Like “The Avengers,” “Justice League” centers on a group of superheroes who band together to save the world. The ensemble nature of the comic book movie, and the fact that its cast includes several of the most in-demand actors working in Hollywood today, is creating scheduling headaches that have prolonged the shooting.
Superman’s mustache will be digitally removed as Justice League faces extended reshoots
Henry Cavill, who is also currently shooting the upcoming sixth Mission: Impossible movie, is apparently sporting a mustache for his role in the spy caper, and Paramount has contractually blocked him from shaving it off. Instead, Warner Bros. will digitally remove the offending ’stache in post-production for Justice League, in what can only be described as the true magic of cinema. Then again, maybe Warner Bros. should just let him keep the mustache. After all, facial hair is the surest sign of an evil version of a character, and like I’ve already argued, we all know Superman is totally going to turn out to be evil in Justice League anyway.
Josh Brolin Further Transforms Into Cable for ‘Deadpool 2’
Since his casting announcement, Brolin has been getting into character, both mentally and physically — showing off his readiness by posting updates on his workouts, trolling Ryan Reynolds and getting a Cable-ready haircut. On Wednesday, Brolin posted a photo of a mold being taken of right half of his face. That side of the character’s face is scarred and features a cybernetic eye in the comics. “Insanity on the brink. Face is morphing into something machine, fierce, hair sliced, arm machined, bulged. Where is Deadpool?!? Looking. Looking. All I got are these two…molding me, prodding, turning me into something hard,” Brolin wrote.
