In an otherwise news-worthy day (Thanks, Marvel), the best news I have heard all day is that Warner Bros. is working on a live-action Plastic Man film, according to Deadline. Warner Bros. has tapped Amanda Idoko to write the screenplay, with her sole screenwriting credit for the upcoming film Breaking News in Yuba County, which stars Laura Dern and Allison Janney.
Any picks for who could play the fantastic Patrick “Eel” O’Brian in live-action? My pick is going to go to Matt Smith (Doctor Who, Terminator: Genisys). We’ll see if this goes anywhere, however, as the film has not been greenlit, and only has a screenwriter attached.

Zachary Levi, star of the upcoming DC Entertainment adaptation, has shared the latest Shazam! poster on his Instagram page and also teased that fans can expect a new trailer for film after the new year.

You can hit the jump to check out the latest theatrical poster in full.

While this rumor would put up in very early talks, Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has had discussions about a solo Zatanna film that would eventually lead into Justice League Dark. Given the production troubles by Justice League Dark, this would serve as a great lead-in, introducing audiences to the mystical side of the DC Universe.
Again, this is by no means confirmed, but early talks. There is no writer, no producer, no director, and certainly no star. With that in mind, who do you think could work as a big-screen version of the mystical magician given her numerous live-action renditions?
The Wrap is reporting that DC Entertainment is working on a live-action Blue Beetle film, starring the third incarnation of the character, Jamie Reyes. Arguably the most popular Blue Beetle, Reyes wields an alien device called the Scarab, giving him incredible powers, and an incredibly iconic suit of armor in the process.
Scarface reboot writer, Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, has reportedly been tapped to write the script. Zev Foreman (Colossal) will serve as executive producer for the studio. Currently no other details are available, but we should expect to hear more, soon.

Variety is reporting that newcomer Ella Jay Basco (Veep) is in final talks to portray Cassandra Cain, aka Orphan, in the upcoming DC adaptation, Birds of Prey. In the movie, Harley Quinn, Huntress, and Black Canary team up to protect Cassandra, the daughter of David Cain and Lady Shiva, from the terrifying mobster, Black Mask.
Cathy Yan is set to direct, with the film currently releasing on February 7th, 2020. We’ve got a ways to go before production begins on this one, but the cast has shaped up to be something quite special.
What an insane day for Swamp Thing news! After the surprise addition of Matthew Cable earlier today, it’s now being reported that Kevin Durand (The Strain) is in final talks to play Jason Woodrue, aka The Floronic Man, in the upcoming DC Universe streaming series.
Originally introduced in the pages of The Flash, Woodrue was released from prison by Avery Sunderland before going on to become one of Swamp Thing’s most prominent rivals throughout comic history.
Deadline is reporting that Henderson Wade (Riverdale) has joined the case of Swamp Thing as Matthew Cable, “a Louisiana lawman who finds himself in dire straits when supernatural evil threatens the town he’s sworn to protect.”
This makes quite the intriguing addition to the cast, as Matthew Cable has ties to both Len Wein’s original run of Swamp Thing, and Doom Patrol, which could lead to quite a fantastic crossover. Additionally, Cable also has ties to Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, being one of Morpheus’ Ravens after his eventual death. Perhaps we may finally see that live-action Sandman after all?
The DC Universe streaming series, Swamp Thing, continues to round out its cast, with the addition of Will Patton (Halloween, Armageddon) as the show’s villain, Avery Sunderland. According to Deadline‘s description on Sunderland, this take will “serve as the de facto patriarch of his Louisiana hometown, always giving back to the community. His benevolent veneer, however, masks a ruthless determination to harness the power of the swamp for profit.”
In the original comics, Sunderland was a minor character setting up the introduction of The Floronic Man, so it’s entirely possible we may see a major villain in the second season of the series.
