Each character will be joining the Justice League (although we don’t know what that’ll mean with regards to the Lanterns – likely either one will join the team, or the whole bunch will fight the Justice League, you know how superhero meet-ups tend to work).

Gal Gadot will be Wonder Woman in her movie next Summer, which’ll be set in the past, during the War. She’s also been seen, of course, in the trailers for Batman Vs Superman.

Jason Momoa’s Aquaman will be in cinemas in Summer 2018, with Blake Lively apparently cast as Mera.

Before, as the final part of the movie wave so far revealed, we come to the Green Lantern Corps. No date has been set for this movie yet, and nobody has been cast for it –¬†or even who the lead Green Lantern will be. Hal, John, Guy or Kyle? We’ll have to see.

Jason Mantzoukas to Write the ‘Battling Boy’ Movie

battlingboy

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the upcoming film version of Paul Pope’s ‘Battling Boy’, but this week saw the announcement that writer Jason Mantzoukas is up to script the feature. Mantzoukas is best known as a comedic writer and actor (as well as prolific podcaster), which may well hint towards the intended tone of the movie, which’ll apparently also mix animation and live-action. He’s also a noted fan of comics, making this a really intriguing hiring move.

Published by FirstSecond, ‘Battling Boy’ was first released in 2013. It’s a fantasy following a young boy with godly powers who is sent down to another world in order to… well. battle a load of monsters, basically. It’s styled like Norse fantasy, with a lot of fighting, mythical concepts, and that heavy distinctive Paul Pope artwork.

Patrick Osborn will direct the movie once it leaves pre-production.

Right, heynongman.
