Fisher revealed he already shot his scene for Batman v Superman back in July. “I met everyone in the Justice League except Henry Cavill [Superman] and Ezra Miller [The Flash],” Fisher said. “It was surreal. You get this idea of going to work on a Hollywood set as being really stressful and nerve-wracking. But it blew that stereotype away. If they did have stressful times, it wasn’t while I was there.”
Fisher also explained he was just as surprised as the fans by Warner's reveal of a Cyborg stand-alone film last week. “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character,” Fisher, said. “When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.”
Buried in the report though is word from New Line president/COO Toby Emmerich that Wan may produce or direct an upcoming DC Comics film. “James will make an important movie for New Line and Warner Bros or DC, "Emmerich said, "and that is definitely part of the plan, and a reason for bringing him into the family. He’s the only overall director with a deal here, because we see him as a class of one.”
With Wan's horror and action background, this opens up some interesting possibilities for a future DC feature film.
According to Variety, WB's newly created short-form digital division, Blue Ribbon Content, will develop and produce live-action and animated series for digital platforms, including spinoffs from their DC Comics franchise.
Static Shock - Live-action series from Reginald Hudlin (producer of Django Unchained, writer-director of House Party, and exec producer-director of TV series The Bernie Mac Show) features African-American super hero Static, a.k.a. Virgil Ovid Hawkins. Static Shock is based on the Static comic co-created by the late Dwayne McDuffie with co-writer Robert L. Washington III and artist John Paul Leon, originally published by DC Comics imprint Milestone Comics. Milestone Media co-founder and comic book artist-TV producer Denys Cowan (who was behind the original Static Shock animated series) is collaborating with Hudlin on the new series.
Batman: The Animated Series Experience - As previously announced, Blue Ribbon, DC Entertainment and Otoy are jointly creating an immersive virtual-reality entertainment experience in which the Batcave brought to life via interactive holographic video for virtual-reality displays. Otoy is collaborating with series producer Bruce Timm on the interactive narrative experience, which will be available on devices including the Samsung Galaxy Gear VR and the Oculus Rift.
CW President Mark Pedowitz said in a press release today, "We have had a fantastic start to our season this year, with The Flash launching as our most-watched series premiere ever, and Jane the Virgin recognized as the best new show this season by critics across the country. Over the past three seasons, we have made it our mission to grow and to broaden out our audience, and to keep raising the bar with the quality and impact of our new shows, and The Flash and Jane have both exceeded our expectations on all counts. I'm thrilled to announce full season orders for both of these terrific new series."
