(As you may be able to tell, I have lost all ability to mask my disdain at all things DC movie universe. But on with the article… )
Ezra Miller (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”) has been cast as the Flash for an appearance in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but it is still unknown as to what capacity we will be seeing any of the second tier JLA-ers in. Miller’s casting also has led some non-disillusioned fans to speculate as to which of the men to bear the mantle of the Flash he will be playing.
Fox’s “Gotham” is already moving forward with plans for its second season, adding another future villain to its cast.
Nicholas D’Agosto (Masters of Sex) has signed on to play Harvey Dent. Although D’Agosto looks very young, he is in his mid-30s, so it appears that he’ll be a contemporary of Jim Gordon’s rather than young Bruce Wayne.
How exactly they’re going to play that remains to be seen. Personally, I’ll be eagerly anticipating all of the double entendres that will henceforth and forevermore be slipped into the dialogue whenever he’s around.
Sony Announced at SDCC that a movie based on the hit pseudo-zombie/survival game is in the works. Sam Raimi, producer of awesome shit like Xena: Warrior Princess and director of awesome until the third installment stuff like the Tobey McGuire Spider-Man movies, is attached to add producing this bad boy to his roster. Alongside him will be Naughty Dog’s own Creative Director, Neil Druckmann, also acting as a producer. The film will be distributed by Screen Gems and Raimi’s own company, Ghost House, so don’t be surprised by a possible Bruce Campbell cameo.
Also from game developer Naughty Dog, co-Presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra, writer Neil Druckmann and Game Director Bruce Straley will be acting as “Creative Architects” for the movie, keeping it as close to the source material as possible.
