It should tell you something that we have run multiple versions of these reminder guides for the state of Warner Bros.’s DC Entertainment movie universe. But it isn’t every week that your whole understanding of the fragile state of a movie universe gets turned upside down by talk of one of its biggest stars exiting, is it?

Director Matt Reeves has so far been pretty hush-hush about plans for his upcoming DC Entertainment film, The Batman. Finally, he’s opened up about the movie’s status, what role Ben Affleck might play, and the story we can expect. In short: Don’t believe those Year One rumours.
As much as diehard fans of Warner Bros.’ DC movies might not want to admit it, the fact of the matter is that most of the studio’s films so far have been, well, not great. The studio’s less-than-stellar track record made it kind of difficult to get too excited for Shazam!, a property you wouldn’t immediately think would be one of the major linchpins of DC’s (still relatively new) cinematic universe.
Aquaman is Warner Bros.' latest entry into the ever-expanding DCEU, but it's also something much more fascinating on a technical level. It's an action movie that takes place mainly underwater, something that could either be brilliant or absolutely terrible. While the first images from the film don't give us an idea of which way the tide will turn, they are pretty to look at.
Say what you will about Zachary Levi and his starring role in Warner Bros.' upcoming Shazam! solo movie, but you have to respect the man's unflinching pride in that (questionable) suit that the studio is taking its sweet time in letting everyone get a proper look at. You also have to respect his very considerate response to one "hater" recently.
A lot of bad edits, behind-the-scenes antics, and other questionable decisions turned DC's Suicide Squad from a cool antihero saga into a weird, confusing mess. Jared Leto's Joker took the biggest hit - making the much-hyped "method" character a glorified cameo. Now, director David Ayer is shining another light on the villain-that-could-have-been, revealing how the Joker's schemes originally included an alliance with Enchantress herself.
In the wake of the news that Joss Whedon is no longer attached to Warner Bros.' upcoming Batgirl movie, the burning question now is just who will write and direct? Here's a novel idea - give the project to a woman.
Mixed reactions to Justice League aside, Warner Bros. is going to keep on making movies based on DC Comics' vast stable of superhero characters. Of course, that's not going to change. According to a new Variety article, what will change are the people in charge of those films and the people performing in them.
There's no doubt Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn was the standout character in Suicide Squad. It's why, since then, we've heard the character will not only be in Suicide Squad 2, but possibly a Gotham City Sirens movie as well as a Harley and Joker movie. But the actress is reportedly working on a fourth Harley movie that has nothing to do with any of those.
Last week, a Change.org petition asking for the release of Zack Snyder's director's cut of Justice League made headlines. But, it turns out, even if Warner Bros. wanted to put out another version of the film, it's unlikely that Snyder even finished a director's cut in the first place.
