News from The Hall Of Justice:
DC Developing Live-Action METROPOLIS TV Series Revolving Around Lois Lane And Lex Luthor:
Syfy is currently hard at work developing Krypton, a prequel TV series following the adventures of Superman’s grandfather long before Kal-El was born. Now, another Man of Steel-themed prequel is in the works in the form of Metropolis, a live-action show developed by DC for its new digital service.
That launches later this year and will bring Titans with it but this show is targeting a 2019 debut and the first season will consist of thirteen episodes. Gotham executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon are writing the story and will serve as executive producers on the project. Stephens will write the pilot and Cannon will direct but, we won’t see a ten-year-old Clark running around saving the day!
Instead, Metropolis is going to revolve around Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane and the villainous Lex Luthor in the years before Superman arrived in the city. That means he’ll still be off in Smallville doing his own thing and won’t appear in the show. That could change given time but it seems DC is looking to put the focus solely on Lois and Lex’s respective journies before they met the iconic DC Comics hero.
The logline says the show will follow “Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets.” Does that mean they’re working together?
SHAZAM! – Movie Synopsis –
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).
The DC Films brand is expanding into standalone movies, starting with a Joker origin story from The Hangover director Todd Phillips. Now Variety is reporting that The Master star Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to play Joker in Phillips’ movie.
Specifically it is reported that Phoenix is Todd Phillips clear frontrunner for the Joker role, but that studio negotiations have not yet begun. However, Phillips and Phoenix reportedly had a very successful meeting late last year, and it’s now just on Warner Bros. to sign off. Rumor has it that Leonardo DiCaprio was first sought for the role, but didn’t come to a deal.
The DC Standalone franchise is still waiting on an official branding name, but this Joker origin story will no doubt be an important launchpad for this division of the brand, which will offer moviegoers storylines and characters
