Yes! District 9, Chappie and Elysium all had great action scenes. I’m actually sort of confident this will come out good.
“EXCLUSIVE: MGM is developing a new installment of RoboCop and has set District 9 director Neill Blomkamp to helm the picture, which is titled RoboCop Returns. The studio hopes to revive a franchise that began with the Paul Verhoeven-directed satirical sci-fi action thriller that Orion released in 1987. Original writers Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner are producing and exec producing, respectively. Justin Rhodes, who co-wrote the Terminator film that Tim Miller is shooting, will rewrite the script that Neumeier and Miner wrote years ago as a planned sequel to Verhoeven’s hit, an installment that never happened. That duo is creatively involved in moving forward their creation for the first time since the original. ”

This really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. It’s almost like WB & DC have gone nutty. Hollywood Reporter has the full story.
“The Joker origin movie is officially a go at Warner Bros.
Joaquin Phoenix recently finalized his deal to star as the arch-nemesis of Batman and shooting is set to begin in September in New York.
Todd Phillips is directing the film and co-wrote the script, which the studio describes as being an “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.” Scott Silver co-wrote the script.
Warners has yet to stake out a release date for the film, which goes against the grain of most comic book movies that have flags planted years in advance. But the Joker stand-alone pic is meant to be different from other comic book superhero movies.
The project’s budget is in the $55 million range, significantly lower than the tentpoles that dominate the form. And the stand-alone is meant to be darker and more experimental in tone and content (at least as experimental as a studio can be with established brands such as DC), which is described as being akin to a crime drama.
That said, there is a chance that the movie could be ready for release as early as late 2019, depending on various factors.”

Today, DC Comics announced that its launching a new imprint geared toward “edgy, provocative” takes on some of everyone’s favorite superheroes called DC Black Label.
In the early 90s, DC launched some of the most popular, enduring stories not just in comics but in all of fiction under its Vertigo label including Preacher, Y: The Last Man, Fables, A History Of Violence, and The Sandman. These titles were original properties geared towards courting an older audience, mimicking the content of R-rated films. It looks like DC now has plans to do another Veritgo label but this new one is focused on DC characters like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.
DC Black Label will launch with Batman: Damned, penned by Brian Azzarello and illustrated by Lee Bermejo on September 19. Batman: Damned is a bi-monthly series that unfolds in 48-page issues. The Black Label was originally going to start with Superman: Year One, but that title has been delayed until November. Here’s DC’s entire lineup:
