Warner Bros. Pictures has reportedly just registered websites for four DC Comics movies in the works according to Tech Times.
The registrations would indicate Justice League, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam are part of their immediate plans. Specifically the company just registered the following domains: JusticeLeagueFilm.com, ShazamMovie.com, WonderWomanTheMovie.com, and AquamanMovie.com. All four sites currently redirect to the Warner Bros. Pictures official homepage.
The studio announced release dates for nine upcoming DC Comics movies a while back, all were for untitled projects. This would seem to lock down titles for almost half of those, though when these projects will be "officially announced" is unknown at this point.
It has been known for a while that Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye character had a cameo in the original "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" screenplay, but it was cut before it went into production. Co-director Joe Russo has spoken with Screen Rant this week and explained the cameo in detail and why Hawkeye was in the story:
"What it was going to be, we were trying to complicate the relationship between Cap and his S.H.I.E.L.D agent friends. If Hawkeye got a call from S.H.I.E.L.D saying Captain America is a fugitive, would he listen to that call or not listen to that call?
That sequence actually was heartbreaking for us to cut it. I think it ultimately might have been a conflict with Renner's schedule. But there was a great sequence where Hawkeye was chasing Cap through Washington D.C. there was an awesome sequence where they confronted each other in a ravine on the outskirts of D.C. and Hawkeye was shooting a series of arrows closing in on Cap, Cap closing in on him.
And then Cap took him down and he realized for the first time that Hawkeye was trying to trick S.H.I.E.L.D, where he whispered something into Cap's ear that Cap had a tracker on his suit and to punch Hawkeye to make it look real, because there was a Quinjet hovering above where they were watching the feedback back at S.H.I.E.L.D.
So it was a cool sequence. But look, there's a million iterations of films, and especially when dealing with Marvel movies where characters can come in or come out during the creative process. And you keep working and working like a Rubik's Cube till you find the right configuration where everything lines up. So even though we lost that sequence, I think we may have streamlined the movie and made it a little bit more propulsive."
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Blu-ray hits stores on September 9th.

[This is a review of Under the Dome season 2, episode 10. There will be SPOILERS.]
One of the more adverse side effects of being trapped Under the Dome is the increased likelihood that any given conversation between two or more characters will somehow devolve into a long winded opportunity for some unnecessary exposition. This has been well documented throughout the series’ run, and after 23 episodes it becomes clear the residents of Chester’s Mill have been stricken with some ailment rendering them unable to talk with one another without also explaining everything that has recently happened, even if the event in question occurred while the other ...
