J.J. Abrams and Michael B. Jordan discussed Superman with Warner Bros.

The future of DC Comics films is starting to shape up with a mix of blockbuster hits (Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Shazam!), character deep-dives (Joker, The Batman), and chaotic team-ups (Birds of Prey, The Suicide Squad). But the future of one of DC Comics most iconic superheroes is still up in the air.

A lengthy report from Variety details the future of Warner Bros. superhero films, including details on how prevalent Arkham Asylum will be in The Batman and a contract option for several stars of The Batman and Birds of Prey to have their own standalone or show up in sequels. After the runaway success of Joker, Warner Bros. is more open to R-rated superhero movies, especially since Marvel isnt really fulfilling

Theyre on the upswing, BoxOffice.com chief analyst Shawn Robbins told Variety. They had a rocky period, but theyre starting to find their footing.

A key Warner Bros. goal is to finally get a Green Lantern movie off the ground with Geoff Johns set to write the script (with J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot expected to get a first look at the project). The Ezra Miller-helmed Flash movie thats been in production hell for several years is still on the docket despite Millers key role in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. But the biggest enigma remains one of the publishers most famous comic book character: Superman.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. discussed Superman and how to make the character relevant to theater-going audiences with both Abrams and Michael B. Jordan, the latter who gave Warner Bros. his own pitch for the character. But with his own slate of films in the works for the next few years, Jordan currently isnt attached to a Superman film, and the chances of seeing a Superman film debut in theaters before 2023 is highly improbable.

More than almost any character, Warner Bros. has struggled in recent years with bringing Superman to the big screen. Superman Returns fell flat, and although Henry Cavills turn in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Justice League has its fans, those films were largely panned by critics. And while reports that Cavill had left the role (like Ben Affleck did with Batman) surfaced last year, Cavill has since pushed back.

Mindy Kaling discussed a Kamala Khan adaptation with Marvel Studios

Uncategorized

BTW

Kamala Khan, one of the most popular new Marvel characters of the past decade, may soon receive a live-action adaptation.

While promoting her new movie Late Night, writer/actress Mindy Kaling confirmed that she’d spoken to Marvel Studios about adapting Ms. Marvel.I think the people Ive spoken to Marvel about it are so excited about the character and I think that theyre trying to figure out what to do with it, she told MTV News. I told them I would help in any way because I truly love her.

Kaling steered clear of making a definitive statement about working on Ms. Marvel herself, but indicated that Marvel is considering making one in general.

Kamala Khan has appeared in animated shows and Marvel video games, but a live-action version would be a much bigger deal. Fans were already speculating about aMs. Marvel spinoff franchise fromCaptain Marvel (kind of like how Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was introduced inCaptain America: Civil War), with producer Kevin Feige teasing the idea last year. But as Kaling points out, the Disney+ streaming service also creates more opportunities for TV adaptations.

In the aftermath ofAvengers: Endgame, Marvel has kept surprisingly quiet about future plans. That’s because Phase 3 of the MCU technically doesn’t end until Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out next month.Phase 4 will include sequels for Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther,and Doctor Strange, along with Black Widow, Shang-Chi, and The Eternals, but there could still be room for a Ms. Marvel movie there too.
