Omega Wednesday: DC Comics News

Good day to all of you! It’s Omega Wednesday once again and I’ve got all the DC Comics News for you.

Movies

In film, Warner Bros. has just released this weekend a new trailer for our Amazonian Princess. The trailer features Diana’s origin story. We see her mother Hippolyta showing her the outskirts of Themsycra and its wonders. Then we get to see the sword Diana would someday wield. In the trailer, we also get to see her aunt and other Amazonians training her and on the background we hear Hippolyta telling them to train Diana in the most fiercest manner. We also get to see Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor and Diana Prince in London. The trailer is action-packed and looks like Diana is going to kick so much ass in World War I. Check out the trailer below:

In other news, Warner Bros. is looking at Matthew Vaughn, the director of Kingsman, to  lead Kal-El to a more happier tone. According to Collider, the studio is talking to Vaughn for “prelimenary” developments and are still far for the “deal-making stage”. Vaughn is no stranger to comic book movies for he directed other superhero movies such as X-Men: First Class and Kickass,  Vaughn and Mark Millar previously came up with a story and pitched it to Warner Bros. Back in 2010, Vaughn told MTV News that discussions were “very brief” on the project with the studio and in the end they greenlighted Christopher Nolan and David Goyer who in the end turned to be 2013’s Man of Steel. Matthew Vaughn, in the meantime, has his eyes on his second entry on the Kingsman’s series entitled Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Hopefully, we’ll get the Superman film we all deserve.

Meanwhile, Ben Affleck just released a message in Facebook that he had just been released from rehabilitation and has completed treatment from his alcoholic addiction. The Batman actor said that this was one step of many towards to a positive recovery. In Facebook he says,

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step. I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”

Ben Affleck announced last January that he’ll be stepping down to direct the Batman-solo film. And recently, Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves is going to direct the said film.
