EL FANBOY: “DCEU’s New Strategy Is Coming Into Focus, IT Is A Real MOTHER At The Box Office, More!”

On this week’s stacked edition of El Fanboy, MFR explains how Marvel and Lucasfilm are adapting the TV model of storytelling for the big screen- and the Pros and Cons of that approach. Meanwhile, WB and DC are trying to forge their own path by trying to have their cake and eat it, too, with the DCEU. Can that approach work?

Hint: At this point, it looks like the only difference between the DCEU and DCEU 2.0 is that a certain someone is out of the picture…

He also sheds some light on the production timeline for THE BATMAN, revealing how close we came to having a new Dark Knight film to enjoy next summer.

Other topics covered include:

– Matthew Vaughn Comments on How He’d Approach MAN OF STEEL 2
– Patty Jenkins Talks WONDER WOMAN 2
– IT Is Dominating The Box Office, HALLOWEEN Is On the Way, And FRIDAY THE 13TH Is Dusting Off The Ol’ Hockey Mask?!
– Impressions of the first image from the HELLBOY reboot, and what is UP with Lara Croft’s neck in the TOMB RAIDER poster?!

And much, much more!
