While principal photography on Zack Snyder's 'Justice League' has been completed, the director, alongside his producer wife Deborah have announced they are stepping down from the production after the death of their daughter, Autumn. Warner Bros have announced that 'The Avengers' director Joss Whedon will step in to complete the film which will hit cinemas at the end of the year.




According to the Hollywood Reporter, Whedon will complete post-production and limited reshoots on the film although studio president Toby Emmerich is adamant that the film won't deviate too far from the tone set by Snyder, saying "We're not introducing any new characters. It's the same characters in some new scenes. He's handing the baton to Joss, but the course has really been set by Zack". Tragically, the Synder's lost their 20 year old daughter to suicide in March.


Featuring Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), the Flash (Ezra Miller), Superman (Henry Cavill), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa), 'Justice League' is set to be the DC comics version of 'The Avengers', which the studio is hoping will bring in the huge revenue that eluded last summer's 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'.

See Tom Cruise run from the 'Mummy' in final trailer

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: May 19, 2017 5:10 am

After laying dormant for nine years since the release of the ill-received 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor', Universal Studios has opened up the sarcophagus of the franchise for a new mega budget reboot starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella, which has just released its final trailer ahead of next month's theatrical release.



The new 'Mummy' reboot is being built from the ground up to launch a cinematic universe of the studio's classic horror icons, including The Invisible Man, The Wolf Man, Van Helsing and Dracula. As the kick-starter for a new multiverse, there's quite a bit of expectation on its shoulders for first time director Alex Kurtzman, but it sure looks like it's off to a good start. Even if it's a complete disaster, it will still be better than the last 'Mummy' film.


'The Mummy' is set to scare cinemagoers in 2D, 3D and IMAX cinemas worldwide from June 9, 2017.

In a surprise announcement, Netflix has announced that production on the 10 episode series 'The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance' is currently underway, which is said to take place many years before the film. The original concept designer Brian Froud is back on board, as is the Jim Henson company - so expect lots of live action puppets.

It's currently too soon to officially announce when 'The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance' will hit Netflix, but a 2019 release seems more than likely.
