Crime has a new/old/adorable enemy when The LEGO Batman Movie soars into theaters next year. And we’ve got the film’s first official poster for you in today’s Movie Morsels. Plus, the latest on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Indiana Jones 5, and more!
The LEGO Batman Movie
Although Bruce Wayne hits the screen in this week’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I’m personally far more interested in seeing next year’s The LEGO Batman Movie. Starring the voices of Will Arnett (reprising his role at the Caped Crusader from The LEGO Movie), Ralph Fiennes, Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera, Zach Galifianakis, and Mariah Carey, the film hits theaters February 10, 2017. Photos arrived online yesterday, and now we have the movie’s poster, in which Gotham City is rendered within the Bat Symbol…
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
And speaking of Batman v Superman… Two new featurettes have landed, one focusing on the film’s IMAX release and the other on that former champion of the oppressed, now bringer of darkness, despair, and misery: Superman.
Snyder’s latest stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, and Gal Gadot.
And speaking of Gal Gadot… Word on the streets is that her Wonder Woman shows promise in Batman v Superman, but doesn’t get enough time to showcase the breadth of her powers or character. So I’m hoping director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman solo film will finally do the Amazonian princess justice when it debuts on June 23, 2017. Hot Toys has just unveiled images of its new figure based on Gadot’s Wondy, offering perhaps our most detailed look yet at her costume in the DC Extended Universe…
Indiana Jones 5
Why did Harrison Ford agree to do an Indiana Jones 5 after Crystal Skull was so poorly received? It’s not like he needs or even appears interested in the money. The answer says, Ford, is Steven Spielberg. Here’s what the actor had to say about his decision when he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night…
Finally today… Though Olympic figure skater Tony Harding’s story helped inspire the new screen comedy The Bronze (starring The Big Bang Theory‘s Melissa Rauch), the infamous athlete is getting the proper biopic treatment in I, Tonya. The film is set to star none other than Hollywood’s new golden girl Margot Robbie, last seen making a cameo in The Big Short and soon to appear as the one and only Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. No director has been announced yet, but a script has been written by Steven Rogers. (No, not that Steve Rogers!)
