‘Spider-Man’ writer says James Cameron made Hollywood take superhero genre seriously

Throughout the 1990s, James Cameron fought long and hard to make his very own Spider-Man film.

Unfortunately for Cameron, and cinema fans, even though he was attached to write and direct a Spider-Man film for Carolco Pictures, the Oscar winner ultimately left the project after years of legal battles over the rights.

Ultimately, Columbia Pictures won this fight, which resulted in Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider-Man blockbuster. However, screenwriter David Koepp has revealed that he was still heavily inspired by Cameron’s work, especially when it came to Hollywood taking Peter Parker, and the superhero genre in general, seriously.

Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman Returns and Meets a New Enemy in Clip of Zack Snyder’s Justice League

Gal Gadot returns as Wonder Woman in the first clip of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, out on HBO Max in 2021

Wonder Woman is meeting one of DC’s greatest villains.

Gal Gadot returns to her superheroine in the first clip of HBO Max’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Darkseid was originally intended to be Snyder’s main villain in the film before he was replaced by Joss Whedon with Steppenwolf, one of Darkseid’s minions. Whedon took over for Snyder on the 2017 film after he stepped down following the death of his daughter.

After Wonder Woman views the mural, the clip cuts to the aforementioned villain on the planet Apokolips where he gathers a massive army.

HBO Max boss says Justice League Snyder Cut “not a precedent” after fans call for Suicide Squad Ayer Cut

Following the success of #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, fans have been calling on Warner Bros. to release David Ayer’s director’s cut of Suicide Squad. Speaking on The Vergecast, however, HBO Max boss Tony Goncalves rubbished fans’ hopes, saying their Justice League plans are “not a precedent” for other fan campaigns.

Following the streaming platforms’ announcement that Zack Snyder will release his cut of the critically-panned Justice League movie next year, Suicide Squad director David Ayer has been calling for the same treatment. Ayer posted on Twitter : “My cut would be easy to complete. It would be incredibly cathartic for me. The film I made has never been seen.”

This frank admission led to fans calling on the studio to #ReleaseTheAyerCut. Yet, they may have to campaign a little harder for anything to come to fruition. “Look, [the Snyder Cut] definitely [is] not a precedent,” HBO’s Goncalves said. “There’s different types of fandoms.

International Box Office Still Topsy-Turvy Amid Early Cinema Re-Openings; ‘Underwater’ Docks In Korea

Some international box office markets that are up and running — even if not at full steam — saw increases this weekend while others faced drops given good weather in some spots and an overall lack of new product.

However, Disney floated Kristen Stewart-starrer Underwater into Korea for the first time with a No. 1 start at $402K which is one of the better overseas openings for the underperformer that began rolling out globally in January. Disney/Pixar’s Onward also continued to lead Taiwan in its second week.

Local titles in Germany and Czech Republic were still atop the charts and the former continues to see strong drive-in business. Overall, however, there’s evidence that new releases — scant though they may be — are the ones drawing the most attention from moviegoers.

Henry Cavill Returning as Superman for Future DC Comics Movies

After news of Zack Snyder’s Justice League stunned many DC Comics fans, the hits just keep on coming as now it appears that Henry Cavill will once again reprise his role as Superman in future projects for Warner Bros. Pictures. ComicBook.com has learned that Cavill will reprise his role as Clark Kent, though for now a sequel to Man of Steel is not currently in the works from the studio.

Instead, it sounds like Cavill’s Superman will operate in a similar capacity to Marvel’s use of Nick Fury and the Hulk, appearing in films for a supporting role or even smaller cameos. The future of Cavill’s Superman has not yet been fully decided, and it sounds like Warner Bros. and DC Comics are still figuring out where the character best fits in upcoming films.

This new deal is part of the reason that Cavill appeared on director Zack Snyder’s live stream rewatch of Man of Steel last week, the same stream where Snyder announced that his cut of Justice League is coming to HBO Max.
