Merry Tuesday everybody, today it’s all about Marvel and DC.
No Green Lantern Until Justice League Part 2… Maybe.
If you’ve been paying attention to the news surrounding Justice League Part 1, then you will have noticed the conspicuous absence of one member of the League. Honestly, I just thought that the studio weren’t prepared to go anywhere near the character after the Ryan Reynolds fiasco of 2011 and I wasn’t far off. Warner Bros. president, Greg Silverman, has said that they want to treat the character with the ‘reverence’ he deserves. Unfortunately that means that the earliest he will see the big screen is in the 2019 Justice League sequel or potentially in a different film, after that one.
Zendaya Cast In New Spiderman Film
We don’t know much about the new Spiderman reboot but it has now been confirmed that Zendaya (Shake It Up!, K.C. Undercover) will be joining the cast as a character called Michelle. Who is Michelle? We have no idea, but this will be Zendaya’s first non-Disney film role. Having grown up watching her on Disney channel, I really hope she does well.
J. K. Simmons Cast As Commissioner Gordon
Zack Snyder has cast none other than J. K. Simmons in the role of Commissioner Gordon for the new Justice League film. He played a great John Jonah Jameson Jr. (even typing that, I have to stop five times) in the original Spiderman franchise. Gary Oldman was the last person to hold this role in the Christopher Nolan trilogy so J. K. Simmons is quite a change.
That’s all for today but I’ll be back tomorrow with a little guide to Allegiant before its UK release this week and there’ll be more news on Thursday.
Are you ready for another incarnation of the Green Lantern? Do you want to see another Spiderman reboot? J. K. Simmons moving from Marvel to DC, brilliant or awful? Let me know in the comments.
