Based on the classic DC property, the project will mark the filmmaker’s first feature centered around characters from DC.  The announcement was made today by Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group.

In making the announcement, Emmerich stated, “We are so proud to be the studio behind Steven Spielberg’s latest hit, and are thrilled to be working with him again on this new action adventure.  We can’t wait to see what new ground he will break in introducing ‘Blackhawk’ to movie audiences worldwide.”

The screenplay for “Blackhawk” is being written by David Koepp, who has collaborated with Spielberg as a screenwriter on the blockbusters “Jurassic Park,” “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” “War of the Worlds” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”  Spielberg will produce the film together with Kristie Macosko Krieger, under the Amblin Entertainment banner, while Sue Kroll will executive produce, under her Kroll & Co. Entertainment shingle.

Spielberg noted, “It was wonderful working with the team at Warner Bros. to bring ‘Ready Player One’ to the screen.  They bring a blend of passion and professionalism to everything they do and have a tremendous history in this genre.  I am excited to reunite with them on ‘Blackhawk.’”

Spielberg’s next two films are the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise and “West Side Story.”

“Blackhawk” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

This is amazing news! The Blackhawks are an amazing part of the DC Comics family, and in the comics were a big part of the Allied Forces winning in World War II. Presently, Lady Blackhawk is even a superhero on “Birds of Prey,” an all-female superhero team led by Batgirl, Black Canary, and Huntress! We will definitely be keeping our eyes out for this film!

Warner Bros. Announces “Plastic Man” Movie in The Works!

Don’t hold your breath if you were waiting for the superhero movie genre to die down anytime soon. More and more superheroes are flooding the Big Screen and we could not be happier. The newest superhero to now get the movie works is none other than DC Comics’ Plastic Man! Patrick “Eel” O’Brian, aka Plastic Man was a criminal until he was shot and left for dead by the gang he ran with. Somehow a mysterious chemical made it into his wound granting him the ability to shape-shift and stretch into almost any shape he can imagine.

Plastic Man definitely is a popular hero, being a member of the Justice League and for awhile had his own cartoon series. The film will be written by Amanda Idoko, an up and coming writer in the film industry. She has worked as a staff writer on The Mayor,  a short-lived ABC series starring Brandon Michael Hall as a hip-hop artist who becomes the mayor of his city. There is no news on what Amanda’s take on the character will be but it is expected to be an action-comedic piece in line with the nature of the character and his rather silly overtones.

We have to say we are really glad Warner Bros./DC Comics is moving towards expanding the DC Cinematic Universe with new heroes. There is another Justice League movie set in the next few years and we may see an expanded line up if characters like Shazam, Batgirl, Supergirl, and Plastic Man join Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. They will definitely need the help if they are going after Darkseid (think Marvel’s Thanos, but bigger, gray, more evil, and with eye beams that can disintegrate anything)!

Marvel and DC Comics definitely hold a monopoly on the superhero film genre, but that does not mean a few of our favorite video game characters can’t join the fray. Apparently the popular video game company, Capcom, has announced one if its greatest heroes, Mega Man, is getting his own live action film!

Mega Man, as you may already know is a mostly blue robot created by philanthropic scientist, Dr. Wiley to help and benefit mankind peacefully. However, when Dr. Light’s former partner, Dr. Wiley, decides to use their robot creations in an attempt to take over the world, the robot that would become Mega Man is reformatted to become the heroic defender of humanity we know and love today.

There is no casting news on the film yet as it is in early development. We are very excited to see Mega Man to go the live action route. The special effects are going to be amazing; and getting to possibly see characters like Rush, Roll, Proto Man, Cutman, and Gutsman, is making us relive our childhoods. Mega Man’s success could even give way to a Capcom Cinematic Universe, meaning the return of franchises like Street Fighter to the big screen, and the debut of still others like Dark Stalkers! We will keep you posted as more Mega Man news as it becomes available!
