Joe Mangienello and Ezra Miller talk about The Batman and The Flash
 
Both actors will be facing off against Batman and Bruce Wayne one a friend and one a foe. Ezra Miller, though disappointed with the loss of Rick Famuyiwa, has been reading tons of Flash comics, and noted to IGN that one is naive and excitedly at the beginning of their journey, while the other is hardened and slightly cynical. Joe Mangienello stated that he met with Ben and talked about the plot, and that the film will be both new and familiar to fans, and that they are keeping the gritty tone.
 
Steppenwolf has been cast!
 
With actor Ciaran Hinds from Game of Thrones being cast as Steppenwolf, how much of the New Gods storyline will be part of the Justice League, and will Darkseid himself be cast and appear in the film? Should we expect a smaller role in the from of mocap, or will this villain rival what Thanos might be in Avengers Infinity War? 
 
Another Writer abandons “Sandman” Movie Adaptation!
 
Its been reported that Eric Heisserrer, Arrival Writer, has turned in what he worked on and left the project. He stated “I had many conversations with [Sandman creator] Neil [Gaiman] on this, and I did a lot of work on the feature and came to the conclusion that the best version of this property exists as an HBO series or limited series, not as a feature film, not even as a trilogy. 
 
Should we be worried about the DCEU?
 
With the loss of yet another Director on Flash, and the bad reviews that both Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad got from critics, can a turnaround happen under Geoff Johns and Jon Berg? WB CEO Kevin Tsuijhara thinks so, stating to the NY Times, "Quietly, we’ve been having an amazing year.  The narrative, over all, has not reflected that. People overlook our consistency."  Both Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad  were relatively savaged by critics, yet the combined total of both films is totaling over 1.6 billion, and Tsujihara has seen Wonder Woman and he says its great! Should we be worried?
 
Defenders brings back Elektra!
 
The Netflix 8 episode series “The Defenders” which is currently shooting in New York, and brings together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, has brought in Sigourney Weaver as the main villain, but now we have Elektra herself returning as well, as actress Elodie Yung is back to portray her. With Foggy Nelson, Trish Walker, and Misty Knight returning, we now see that The Hand is back in a very big way. Will Elektra now be the Black Sky under the control of big baddie Sigourney Weaver?
