BATGIRL---Warner Bros. Discovery head David Zaslav commented on cancelling BATGIRL, “We’re not going to put a movie out unless we believe in it. That’s it. The objective is to grow the DC brand, to grow the DC characters, but also our job is to protect the DC brand, and that’s what we’re going to do.
This idea of expensive films going to streaming, we cannot find an economic case for it, so we are making a strategic shift. We’re not going to launch a movie until it’s ready. We’re not going to launch a movie to make a quarter, and we’re not going to put a movie out unless we believe in it.”
Zaslav said Warner Bros. Discovery's plan is to create a DC movie universe similar to Marvel Studios, “You look at Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, these are brands that are known everywhere in the world. And the ability to drive those all over the world with great stories is a big opportunity for us. We have done a reset. We’ve restructured the business. We’re going to focus where there will be a team with a ten-year plan focusing just on DC.
It’s very similar to the structure that Alan Horn and Bob Iger put together very effectively with Kevin Feige at Disney. We think that we could build a long-term, much stronger, sustainable growth business out of DC, and as part of that, we’re going to focus on quality.”
He added, “We have seen THE FLASH, BLACK ADAM and SHAZAM 2. We are very excited about them. We’ve seen them. We think they are terrific, and we think we can make them even better.”
Walter Hamada, head of DC Films, almost quit because he was not consulted about the cancellation of BATGIRL, but he is discussing the situation with his lawyer. A source said, “He’s pausing. The decision has not been made to make this adversarial, yet.”
Co-director Adil El Arbi released a photo from BATGIRL showing Leslie Grace and Michael Keaton.





THE KILLER---John Woo will remake his 1989 movie on Peacock starring Omar Sy (JURASSIC WORLD).

THE BIKERIDERS---Tom Hardy, Austin Butler and Jodie Comer will star in this movie about a 1960s Midwestern motorcycle club that begins to turn into a sinister biker gang.

ALIEN---FX head Landgraf commented on the Noah Hawley tv series, “I’m a big fan of ALIEN and ALIENS, and I remember watching both of them in the theater and how shockingly original and surprising each of them was in its own way. And so, similar to his approach to Fargo, Noah decided not to take Ripley or any character from Alien — except perhaps the xenomorph itself — but go back and figure out what made the franchise so great and so durable in the first place and see if he could find an experience that felt like walking into a theater and seeing one of those first two movies, where you get caught off-guard. That’s all I can say at this point, though.”

ERIC LARUE---Alexander Skarsgard and Judy Greer will star in this movie based on the play about the mother of a teenage boy who shot shot three of his classmates. Michael Shannon is the director.

BOB MARLEY---Lashana lynch will play Bob Marley's wife, Rita, in the untitled biomovie.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES---the title for the Seth Rogen animated movie is TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: MUTANT MAYHEM.

TRIVIA---Robert Towne received an Academy Award for writing the screenplay for the classic CHINATOWN which starred Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway. Towne had a more modest start in 1960 when he was an actor/writer on Roger Corman's sci fi B movie THE LAST WOMAN ON EARTH in which he wrote the script and co-starred under the pseudonym of Edward Wain. The next year, Towne returned with his THE LAST WOMAN ON EARTH co-stars in Corman's CREATURE FROM THE HAUNTED SEA.

I can sort of understand WB's position on "Batgirl".
It's the same concept as "Springtime For Hitler"--something that was meant to lose money which would save money in the long run.
It would be funny if, like SFH, they released it and it made a TON of cash.

That "Creature From The Haunted Sea" is truly... disturbing.

That looks intriguing. A long trailer, and I am mystified.

OMG! 10 plus years out they still have dreams of duplicating the MCU?!
