Live-Action Zatanna Movie Reportedly Moving Forward at Warner Bros.


According to DCEU Mythic, Warner Bros. Picture is reportedly in the process of developing a new live-action DC film which is rumored to be centered around magic-wielding superhero Zatanna Zatara. Despite being one of the main characters in the popular animated film Justice League Dark , the outlet notes that this movie is separate from Bad Robot’s previously announced project about the team. If this new project would be proven true, this will mark Zatanna’s live-action DCEU film debut and first-ever solo outing.

Created by Gardner Fox and Murphy Anderson, Zatanna Zatara made her first appearance in the Hawkman comic books in November 1964. She is the daughter of a famous stage magician named Giovanni Zatara, who have debuted during the Golden Age of Comics. Naturally, Zatanna inherited his father’s magical powers and career as a professional stage magician. Some of her cool powers are the ability to control the elements, telekinesis, telepathy, teleportation, and manipulation of reality.

Even though she hasn’t yet made her live-action film debut, she had first made her live-action appearance in popular DC series Smallville and was portrayed by Serinda Swan. However, DC fans got more familiar with her through her appearances in various animated series such as Batman: The Animated Series , Batman Beyond , Justice League Unlimited , and Young Justice as well as in most recent TV shows DC Super Hero Girls and Harley Quinn .

If the solo Zatanna movie would later be confirmed by Warner Bros., it would officially become a part of the studio’s growing list of ongoing live-action projects including James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad , Matt Reeves’ The Batman , Andy Muschietti’s The Flash , Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam , Ava DuVernay’s New Gods and more.

Man, these weeks are just flying by. What a year, amirite? Imagine talking to your kids or grandkids about 2020 — the year everything in the world seemed to just stop. It has truly been a bizarre experience.

Speaking of bizarre, suddenly you couch potatoes are clamoring for Yellowstone ! I’m so proud. The first season snuck its way on the list a few weeks ago, and now the Top 5 consist of all three seasons. Remarkable what good word of mouth will do for a flick/show/series, eh? Season 3 takes the top spot from The Invisible Man , which endured a long road to the top, but must settle for fifth place this week.

Surprisingly, Trolls World Tour made a huge splash at No. 2. The DreamWorks animated flick has amassed quite the audience since its digital release way back on April 10.

Otherwise, the list remains fairly intact from last week give or take a few titles. Despite the additions of Yellowstone , friggin’ Harry Potter refuses to avada kedavra*. In fact, it has wingardium leviosaed* its way around the Top 20 for nearly a month. Again, no issue here, the series is great. But there are literally millions of films for you to watch, people?

Doom Patrol Season 2 Episode 4 Recap


In the previous episodes of DC Universe’s Doom Patrol , Dorothy accidently broke Danny the Brick, and Jane was jailed in the Underground. In Doom Patrol Season 2 Episode 4, the Doom Patrol and the Dannyzens throw a party to help Danny the Brick.

Dorothy was upset about what happened to Danny the Brick. Though she had lived on Danny the Street for years, she hadn’t been allowed above ground. The Dannyzens arrived to help get Danny the Brick back together and eventually make them a street again. Maura Lee Corrupt suggested throwing a party.

Rita put makeup on Dorothy when she asked after confirming that, while she was eleven years old, she had lived a hundred and seventy-five years. Niles didn’t like it, but Dorothy assured him she was older than he thought. The party started like a quiet cocktail party, but things picked up after Dorothy sang “Pure Imagination”. However, it was her bedtime, and she had to leave the party.

The Candlemaker taunted Dorothy and her other imaginary friends like Hershel.

Rita was having trouble controlling her powers. Flex told her she needed a clear mind She asked Flex to use his powers to help her orgasm again like he had done on Danny the Street to help her clear her mind. We saw in her past that she had witnessed her mother sleeping with someone to get her part. Rita ended up echoing her mother’s words when Dorothy asked her if she was beautiful.

As the night progressed, the party got wilder. Larry was awkward when trying to dance with a man and ended the night feeling lonely. Niles offered to dose Cliff with Ecstasy. While Cliff was high, he found himself dancing with a shadow. It turned out to be a sex demon, who’d been attracted to the party because of Rita’s orgasm. The Sex Men, Kiss, Torture, and Cuddles, arrived to stop it from birthing a baby whose cry would eliminate all the children of the world.

Though Jane was still locked up in the Underground, her other personalities had attended the party. When Dr. Harrison heard that children were in trouble, she braved Flex’s powers, presumably for Kay. It was Hammerhead who saved the day by shoving the baby back into the sex demon. When Cliff hugged her, Hammerhead let Jane out, and she was back as the primary.

Dorothy asked Danny if they were friends when she went back down to the party. They had been keeping her prisoner for Niles when Dorothy lived in Danny the Street. Danny confronted Niles and refused to take her again. At the end of the episode, Danny was a tire and took the Dannyzens with them.

Guillermo del Toro Confirms 45 Percent of Nightmare Alley is Shot


This year has seen a number of productions shut down around the globe, one of the most buzzed-about being Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of Nightmare Alley , and in a recent interview with IndieWire, the Oscar winner has revealed he and his crew got 45 percent of the film shot before it was halted.

In looking back at early March, when new Searchlight Pictures owner Disney announced production had come to a halt on the psychological thriller, Del Toro revealed that he approached the studio first to ask about shutting it down prior to their asking.

“ We reacted super fast, we proposed the studio to stop as opposed to being asked to stop ,” del Toro said. “ That saved us. Nobody to my knowledge in the cast or the crew got coronavirus. We were roughly 45 percent in. We were literally in the middle of a great scene. We went to lunch and talked to the studio and when we came back we said, ‘Everybody leave your tools and leave now. ‘”

The 55-year-old filmmaker expressed his hope to return to shooting the film in the fall, keeping his “ fingers crossed ,” while also looking on the bright side as his stop-motion musical adaptation of Pinocchio is slowly getting back to shooting, even working on recording ADR for the latter in the meantime. For both productions, del Toro has also penned 80-page documents laying out safety protocols and ensuring they stay intact for when cast and crew return to sets.

“ In stop-motion, you have many sets nearby one another in a warehouse like space ,” del Toro said. “ You can have 10 sets in one space. We had to create a protocol where we now space the sets a certain number of feet. We created different shifts so no one is exposed. In this moment, security is paramount. Health, safety is the number one concert. We got to get used to it. I don’t think we can go back to what we consider the old normal. Everything will be a little altered. ”

Nightmare Alley , written by del Toro and Morgan, will be based on the novel of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham, previously adapted into a movie by Fox in 1947. The novel “follows the exploits of Stanton Carlisle, a ruthless hustler who learns the tricks of the carny trade and uses them to establish himself as a spiritual guru, preying on the wealthy and the weak.”

Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper ( A Star is Born ) will the star-studded cast that includes multi-award winning-actresses Cate Blanchett ( Where’d You Go, Bernadette? ), Toni Collette ( Hereditary ), Rooney Mara ( The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ) along with Oscar-nominee Willem Dafoe ( The Lighthouse ) Ron Perlman ( Hellboy ), Mark Povinelli ( Water for Elephants ), David Strathairn ( Billions ), Richard Jenkins ( The Shape of Water ) and Holt McCallany ( Mindhunter ).

The 1947 movie starred Tyrone Power as an ambitious young con-man who teams up with a female psychiatrist who is even more corrupt than he is. At first, they enjoy success fleecing people with their mentalist act, but then she turns the tables on him, out-manipulating the manipulator.

Nightmare Alley will be directed by Oscar-winner Guillermo del Toro, who will also serve as a producer alongside J. Miles Dale with TSG Entertainment. Searchlight Pictures (formerly named Fox Searchlight) has worldwide distribution rights to the film.
