This week everyone one is back in the house and ready to tackle some geek news and answer these burning questions without pulling a “Porkins”. Starting with what’s up with those Man of Steel 2 rumors? Pacific Rim 2? Yes? No? Who will The Justice League face in the 2017 film? The Lockdown on the new Transformers shared universe movies, Yes, I said movies as in plural. Who is the Bastard Executioner? The Mist is coming to TV? DC is canceling titles again, find out what they are. Plus, what’s new to view on Blu Ray and DVD with Jason and why is Sam Jackson such a bad ass actor yet Mace Windu is the most monotone Mother f**ker of all time. So get ready to be informed and offended this week on The House of Gozer Podcast and we promise, We Can Hold it.
Finally Justice Has Been Served.
Finally recognized for co -creating Batman.
“DC Entertainment and the family of Bill Finger are pleased to announce that they have reached an agreement that recognizes Mr. Finger’s significant contributions to the Batman family of characters. “Bill Finger was instrumental in developing many of the key creative elements that enrich the Batman universe, and we look forward to building on our acknowledgement of his significant role in DC Comics’ history,” stated Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment. “As part of our acknowledgement of those contributions,” Nelson continued, “we are pleased to confirm today that Bill Finger will be receiving credit in the Warner Bros. television series Gotham beginning later this season, and in the forthcoming motion picture Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
IN THE RUMOR MILL THIS WEEK
- This was in fact the original pitch for the Man of Steel sequel. Which is weird since it’s not a Superman centralized story and it just sounds like old sequel thinking. Expand the universe not the character. Batman Forever is a good example.
- In BVS he is again sharing screen time but at least it’s Superman’s character were dealing with and how he is fitting into the world and how he is struggling with how he is perceived. It’s a much stronger concept.
Speaking of DCEU are you ready for a Buddy Cop movie featuring Booster Gold and Blue Beatle?
- Directed by Greg Berlanti and written by Zac Penn.
- it would pair 25th century hero celebrity Booster Gold with teenager Jamie Reyes who uses his super suit to fly and other powers.
- It’s a Live Action movie – Not animated. So more like this, I guess.
- Problem stems from Legendary Entertainment head Thomas Tull who in not well liked it seems.
- Legendary Pictures had a deal with Warners striking success most notably with Nolan’s Batman movies and Pac Rim which made 411 million world wide.
- Legendary’s new 5 year deal with Universal started with clunkers Blackhat and Seventh Son which were both distributed through Universal. While Legendary opted into two Universal movies Jurassic World and Straight Outta Compton both huge success’s.
- Universal has invested in 3 Legendary films, Krampus, Warcraft and the Matt Damon sci-fi film Great Wall. The last two Universal is seeing as problematic. Not to mention Universal pulled out of Del Toro’s Crimson Peak all together.
- So basically, Universal is not taking any money ricks.
- With Warcraft and Great wall not looking very promising and Pac Rim 2’s budget ( Over 200 million ) Universal is not taking any risks.
Could have been made if Legendary and Warners still had the deal?
- Universal Backed out of Kong: Skull Island entirely which led to Tull taking Skull Island and Kong to Warners, which is leading to a crossover with Godzilla.
