On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (Friday May 19th, 2017) Perri Nemiroff, John Rocha, David Griffin, and Wendy Lee discuss the following:
- Wonder Woman early reactions
- James Wan shares first image of Mera from Aquaman
Aquaman director James Wan released the first shot of Amber Heard as Mera. Mera will make an appearance in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and he already released the first shot of her back in October of 2016. Now, compared with the newest look by Wan, it appears we’ll be getting a very different take from the director than Snyder’s darker pallet we’ve come to expect from his films. Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and is set to hit theaters on December 21, 2018. Perri, what do you think about this new image of Mera?
Fox recently set release dates for Deadpool 2 as well as its new spinoff, New Mutants, but the studio also confirmed that the main X-Men franchise will continue with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which will explore the Dark Phoenix story arc with Sophie Turner’s interpretation of the character. Now the question becomes, who of the original quartet of Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult will be back for the installment? Speaking recently on Josh Horowitz’s podcast Happy Sad Confused, Fassbender seemed to confirm that he’ll be reprising his role as Magneto. When asked if we can expect to see him in any of these future X-Men movies, he responded: “Possibly. Yeah, likely.” Rocha, do you think we’ll really see Fassbender back on screen as Magneto?
