In a recent interview with Beyond The Trailer, the director that the plan was that the film “must be true to itself.” He also talked about studios getting involved and tweaking the vision of filmmakers and storytellers.

He was quoted as saying:

I think really the big pressure on me is just for it [Justice League] to be exactly true to itself. And I know that sounds obvious but we as storytellers and as filmmakers a lot of times there’s a lot of different powers that push and move and change what you’re doing as you’re doing it. But I think with this process and this project, it really is an amazing opportunity just to, and what I think the fans want, is just a very pure and exact version of the movie.”

Yes! Things have begun rolling for House of Dragon, the prequel series for ’s Game of Thrones.

House of Dragon will reportedly take place 300 years before the start of its predecessor, charting the history of House Targaryen.

Thankfully, casting for the upcoming series is underway, as revealed by EW. HBO hasn’t released any official casting details yet but since the series is based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood, it can be assumed that several characters from the novel will be seen.

Just when many were hoping the film would herald the reopening of theaters in a time when cinemagoers have sorely missed the activity, Tenet has been removed for its slated August 2020 release date.

Chairman Toby Emmerich had this to say about the development:

We will share a new 2020 release date imminently for ‘Tenet,’ Christopher Nolan’s wholly original and mind-blowing feature. Our goals throughout this process have been to ensure the highest odds of success for our films while also being ready to support our theater partners with new content as soon as they could safely reopen.

We are not treating ‘Tenet’ like a traditional global day-and-date release, and our upcoming marketing and distribution plans will reflect that.”

Well, the shift is understandable considering the continued fight against the pandemic. We only hope that an alternative to a planned theatrical release would be considered should the company want to make another release shift.
