Batman: Bad Blood
Fan-favorite character Batwoman makes her long-awaited screen debut in DC Entertainment’s latest animated feature, Batman: Bad Blood. If watching a flame-haired warrior woman battle ninja nuns is up your alley (and if it isn’t, you don’t have a pulse), check out the trailer in the video below…
A sequel to this year’s Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood is directed by Jay Oliva, and features the voices of Yvonne Strahovski as Batwoman, Jason O’Mara as Batman, Stuart Allan as Robin, Sean Maher as Nightwing, and Morena Baccarin as Talia al Ghul. It arrives in 2016.
The Last Witch Hunter
Vin Diesel’s The Last Witch Hunter continues to look like the fall season’s biggest wild card in its latest clip and TV spots. Directed by Breck Eisner and co-starring Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood, Julie Engelbrecht, and Michael Caine, the action fantasy opens on October 23rd.
The Gray Man
While we’re still bummed to hear that Charlize Theron may not be back for the next Mad Max movie, we’re psyched to know that at least she’s in discussions about another meaty action role. A new report indicates that Theron is up for the role of a gender-swapped version of the hero in Mark Greaney’s novel The Gray Man, described as a “CIA op-turned-assassin who is forced to evade adversaries as he saves the lives of daughters he didn’t know he had.” How the role will differ with a woman playing it remains to be seen, and no director is attached yet, but we know the script is by Captain America: Civil War helmers Joe and Anthony Russo.
Untitled Darron Aronofsky Film
Hollywood’s hottest actress Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to star in Darren Aronofsky’s next film, which is as yet untitled. The filmmaker is looking to start shooting in the spring.
The zombie apocalypse continues to show no signs of dying anytime soon. In a press release, Lionsgate announced that it is teaming up with comic publisher Double Take (a division of Take-Two Interactive Software) to produce a the film adaptation of the company’s graphic novel Z-Men. Written by Jeff McComsey, it’s described as “the flagship title in Double Take’s recently launched universe surrounding the classic horror franchise Night of the Living Dead.”
