When each of these URLs are searched, you're redirected to the Warner Bros. website, or told that the page isn't available, which basically confirms that WB and DC want these sites secured for future use. So, this is exciting, right guys?? Well, kind of…maybe…I guess so? This isn't all that big of a news story to me for a few reasons:
- We already know a Justice League film is coming, so that's no shocker.
- Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been teasing his involvement in a Shazam film for awhile now, so this more-or-less just gives us more proof that the studio is serious about moving ahead with it.
- A Wonder Woman movie is a no-brainer, since we know they've cast Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. They would be stupid not to franchise the hell out of her character, since both DC and Marvel have had cold feet about giving us a female-led superhero movie—not to mention the fact that Wonder Woman is the most iconic female superhero of all time. A great Black Widow film, a great Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) film, a great She-Hulk film? They'll STILL pale in comparison to a good Wonder Woman film. Name recognition is everything. But, I digress. This shouldn't come as a shock to anyone that they're moving forward with it, since Gadot is signed on for a multi-picture deal.
- We already know that Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad are named as writing two completely separate scripts for Aquaman so that DC and WB can have their pick at which one they like better. That news broke around mid-August, so is the fact that they cemented the domain name cool? Yeah, a little, but none of the four domain names jump out at me.
It's not like news broke that Warner Bros. is buying up a domain name for a new Green Lantern reboot, or a Martian Manhunter film. Each of the films mentioned have previous history, so it's cool that we have something semi-tangible and something that makes it that much more real to us that these films are coming, but overall? I'd call this more of a "Oh, that's cool" news story instead of an "OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS, DID YOU HEAR??" type of news story.
What do YOU think? Am I right in this regard, and there isn't a whole lot to get pumped over? Am I wrong, and this is stellar news that should get the blood pumping? Let us know in the comments section! Thanks for reading, everyone! My name is Sam Lascio, and I am a Fanboy!
