Warner Bros. and DC announces that The Batman is full steam ahead with Matt Reeves at the helm but will focus on a younger Batman. This will pass the cowl from Ben Affleck to a new actor.

Blumhouse partners with Universal to bring The Invisible Man to the big screen. Saw Co-creator and Upgrade director Leigh Whannell has been set to direct. Whannell has also been rumored to be writing a reboot to the ’80’s classic Escape from New York.

This will reunite Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham who will reprise their respective roles from the Fast and Furious Franchise. Funko has come out to say that they will be jumping to the big screen in the style of The Lego Movie. They will hopefully be bringing together Deadpool, Wonder Woman, The Care Bears, along with so many more.

Main Topic
