            and "Metamorpho" isn't??

            man, its bad enuff that bringing a comic to life on-screen lately means the almost every character has to wear some type of dark-colored, leathery knock-off, but do we now have to re-imagine their names too?

            • Ben Affleck Has Written His Own 'Batman' Script
              For the fans who found Ben Affleck's Dark Knight to be the highlight of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, some good news: not only will he return for the Justice League movies, but there's the possibility of an additional Batman movie based on Affleck's own take on the character.

              In a Hollywood Reporter cover story with William Morris Endeavor's co-CEOs Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell, Whitesell reveals how many movies Affleck has currently signed up for when it comes to DC's Caped Crusader.

              "He's contracted to do at least Justice League One and Two, so at least three times wearing the cape," he says, adding, "there's a script that he's written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that's out there as an option."

              This isn't the first time the Affleck-originated Batman movie has been raised. During San Diego Comic-Con last year, THR reported that the actor/director was developing a stand-alone Batman project with DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns, with Affleck tentatively attached to direct, as well as star in.

              In addition to the movies Whitesell mentioned, Affleck's Batman will also make a cameo appearance in August's Suicide Squad, which includes a number of the hero's comic book villains as lead characters (His rumored presence was confirmed in footage from the movie released during Comic-Con last year).

                • Really? They try to bring levity to a movie called "Suicide Squad", but they couldn't manage it in a movie with Superman in it?

                    Meh, reshoots to change tone aren't all that rare. It's just a lot of times we don't hear about it.

                      Actually I find this story to be pretty strange.

                      So all the "reports" are really citing this article from Birth.Movies.Death (no idea how credible the site is), and he says WB is spending "tens of millions of dollars" on these reshoots so they wouldn't just be minor things/

                      However with the release date being 4 months out all the major stars would've already moved onto other projects since the movie should basically be done at this point so I'm not sure how that would work. Plus if this is WB reacting to the BvS negative press wouldn't their first move be to fire Snyder since he starts filming JL in 11 days?

                      If I had to guess I'd say this report is false and these are just the standard reshoots that every movie does.

                        Metamorpho has the other name too though, 'the Element Man.' Which IMHO sounds just as badass as Metamorpho. Nobody bats an eyelash at 'Magneto' despite it sounding funny, but 'Geo-Force' is a bit too on the nose. Right up there with 'Arm Fall Off Boy.'

                            • Warner Bros. Mulls Releasing Fewer Films as 'Batman v. Superman' Stalls
                              With Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, has Warner Bros. finally turned a corner?

                              After an abysmal run of expensive underperformers including Jupiter Ascending, Pan and In the Heart of the Sea, the studio launched its effort at a Marvel-style film universe with the DC Comics movie that had been touted as proof the regime installed in 2013 and headed by chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara was getting on track. But a dizzying 69 percent plunge that followed its March-record $166.1 million domestic opening ($422.5 million worldwide) means Batman is not a clear win.

                              Some competitors say the film may turn a profit but hardly will be the money gusher studios hope for when they pour massive resources into making a giant tentpole with a big star — with a budget in this case said to be in excess of $300 million, and Ben Affleck. "The biggest problem," says the head of a rival studio, "is that it is not turning [DC] into Marvel. The audience has communicated, as have the critics." One agent notes BvS likely won't get to $1 billion despite launching the universe with "two of the most iconic characters in history." Pointing out that Jurassic World pulled in $1.67 billion globally, he continues, "you can't tell me Batman v. Superman is so much less valuable."

                              Several sources say Warner Bros. executives were convinced they had the goods with BvS and were shocked when negative reviews began pouring in. Now, with DC movies dated through 2020, the outcome has led to a flurry of rumors that the studio will make adjustments — maybe add a new producer? — rather than allow BvS director Zack Snyder to proceed with the two-part Justice League. But sources with firsthand knowledge of the situation say the studio has no such plans. One says the filmmakers naturally will evaluate what went wrong with BvS, but when it comes to Justice League, "we're not going to take a movie that's supposed to be one thing and turn it into a copycat of something else."

                              Many top industry executives believe the troubles with BvS are the latest sign of the instability created when Time Warner chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes ousted Alan Horn as president in 2011. That set the stage for the infamous executive bake-off and the exit of Jeff Robinov, then head of the successful film group.

                              Ultimately, Bewkes promoted Tsujihara to the top Warners job and created a committee to run the film studio that includes president Greg Silverman and marketing and distribution chief Sue Kroll. It's fair to say things haven't gone so well since. (Warners' loss was Disney's gain, with Horn presiding over that studio as it has become dominant.)

                              In an era of turmoil and transformation, even competitors aren't eager to see a legacy studio like Warner Bros. struggle. Warners long has been known for its commitment to filmmaker- and star-driven projects, but sources see signs of a change in culture, though the studio denies there is one. Several executives and agents say Warners seems to be greenlighting fewer homegrown movies as it focuses on silos that echo those that generate so many hits for Disney (Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar and Disney Animation). In Warners' case, the silos are DC Comics, Lego and a planned franchise spun off from the Harry Potter series. Tsujihara has touted that trio as the linchpin of his film strategy, and now, much like Disney, has eschewed all but a few original live-action films. Overall, sources say there is an understanding Warners is aiming to release fewer homegrown films than the industry-leading 21 it did in 2015. The studio still will make some movies from "family" directors including Affleck, Clint Eastwood, Christopher Nolan and Todd Phillips. But the emphasis is elsewhere. One insider says the studio will remain a dominant distributor, but "when you get to almost a movie every other weekend or a period where there's a movie three weeks in a row, that's too much."

                              Warners maintains there has been no change in policy. "Warner Bros. has historically had the biggest, most diverse slate in the motion picture industry," says a rep in a statement. "We did last year, we will this year, and we will continue to do so into the foreseeable future." (The studio says it will release 18 movies this year and is projected to release 19 in 2017.)

                              But a person who does extensive business at Warners says it has entered a phase that's not only about the number of releases. "It's not dramatic, but it is uncharted territory for them," he says. "They were always filmmaker-driven — that might now not be the case as much. They had a bad 18 months. How could there not be some kind of reaction to that?" Says another executive with business at the studio: "It's a strange path to a greenlight now. It takes longer."

                              Warners could have some bright spots this year. Suicide Squad (Aug. 5) might be the fan hit the DC universe needs. The studio will have a potential draw for adults with Eastwood's hero pilot pic Sully (Sept. 9). And on Nov. 18, Warners will launch what seems its surest four-quadrant bet, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. But, notes analyst Steve Birenberg of Northlake Capital Management, "Time Warner has some work ahead, and it would be helpful if the next movie in the DC relaunch were more widely praised."
                              Warner Bros. Sets Two Mystery DC Films For 2018 and 2019
                              Just a few hours after a report in The Hollywood Reporter claiming that Warner Bros. would be releasing fewer movies in the years ahead to focus on LEGO, Harry Potter and the DC Cinematic Universe, the studio has at least made good on one of those promises. Warner Bros. has official set release dates for two mystery DC Cinematic Universe projects in 2018 and 2019.

                              While the title for these films has yet to be announced, they will be released on Oct. 5, 2018 and Nov. 1, 2019. One of those films is almost assuredly Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie, which was originally rumored for a November 2, 2018 release date. The other is anyone’s guess, really. The 2019 date could potentially be for Wonder Woman 2, or, if you’re really feeling optimistic, another standalone Superman film.

                              Here’s what the current DC Cinematic Universe schedule looks like:

                              Suicide Squad — August 5, 2016
                              Wonder Woman – June 2, 2017
                              Justice League Part One – November 17, 2017
                              The Flash – March 23, 2018
                              Aquaman – July 27, 2018
                              Untitled DC Film — October 5, 2018
                              Shazam – April 5, 2019
                              Justice League Part Two – June 14, 2019
                              Untitled DC Film — November 1, 2019
                              Cyborg – April 3, 2020
                              Green Lantern Corps – June 19, 2020

                              There was some speculation that Warner Bros. might pump the brakes on the superhero movies following the disappointing reaction to Batman vs. Superman, but they have clearly taken that speculation and thrown it right into the garbage. The studio is instead doubling down on their superhero franchises even if it kills them.

                                so....wat, should they shorten it to "Geo" (keeping with the "ending with an 'O' -theme) to become acceptable or something?

                                and personally, Id LOVE for there to be an "'Arm Fall Off Boy" to show up in a movie somewhere, as long as his ability was made more impressive than that guy who showed up in that ish of LSH........
