Quentin Tarantino Star Trek Movie In Development, May Direct

https://screenrant.com/quentin-tarantino-star-trek-film-direct/

Quentin Tarantino is developing a new Star Trek movie for Paramount alongside J.J. Abrams, and may wind up directing it. Abrams is responsible for the resurgence of Star Trek in film over the last decade after relaunching the franchise back in 2009. With an entirely new cast headlined by Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, and Zachary Quinto, the reboot fared well during its first two outings. Unfortunately, Star Trek Beyond did not meet expectations last year at the box office despite critical praise, and the once-considered fourth film has been lost in space ever since.

The Star Trek name is too big of an IP to keep sitting dormant – even though it is still living on through Star Trek Discovery – from theaters. It is no surprise Paramount is looking for another way to bring the franchise back, but it may come from one of cinema’s most talented minds.

Deadline is reporting Quentin Tarantino recently pitched an idea for a new Star Trek film to Abrams and Paramount and it was very well received. Paramount is looking to assemble a writer’s room to flesh out Tarantino’s idea at the moment, and if all things go according to plan, Abrams will stick around as a producer. Depending on the rest of the development process and his schedule, it is also possible that Tarantino could direct the film.

It’s Zack Snyder vs. Joss Whedon as we break down the Justice League that MIGHT have been. Did the reshoots and rewrites by Joss Whedon save the film or would Zack Snyder’s original cut be a classic? We use Superman’s bad upper lip CGI to tell you where Whedon stepped in vs Zack Snyder plus an article on Digital Spy to piece together this pieced together superhero flick.

Justice League: Our Review Notes

1.     The pivot to humor: very evident in this film saved it. There’s no question.

2.     Bad upper lip CGi

3.     The Trump of movies; either people loved it or hated it

4.     Superman: Vibrant colors. We actually get a real Superman: full of hope,

5.     Reminded me briefly of Season six of Buffy when he went dark.

6.     No real plot if you think about it

7.     What about that closing scene?Wonder Woman Ben Affleck

SNYDER VS Whedon:

http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/justice-league/feature/a843529/justice-league-zack-snyder-cut/

The Russian family wouldn’t exist in Snyder’s version – the family are a Whedon addition and they don’t make a lot of sense. (Why that family? Where’s everyone else? Why don’t the Parademons break in and eat them? Are Parademons so weak they can’t get through a minor barricade?) But at least it leads to that funny gag involving The Flash pushing the car and Superman carrying a building, so it was worth it we guess?

The first proper meeting of the League appears to have been completely retooled by Whedon, and it’s the first sign that he completely changed the Superman narrative (pretty much every shot of Superman in this film has a wobbly lip, which means his dialogue was totally redone).

This is roughly the same as Snyder’s intended cut structurally, with significant reshoot changes. For instance, we assume we would have had Superman come back from the dead in the comic-referencing black suit we were promised on Henry Cavill’s Instagram in this scene.

Also, sources say a Cyborg premonition sequence – which would have played just before the team enacted the whole ‘bring Superman back from the dead’ plan – would have happened here.

It would have tied the plot more closely to the Knightmare sequence from BvS, suggesting that this is the evil Superman from that vision.

The subsequent fight between Superman and the League was all Snyder, but would have run longer, taken place at dusk, and would have involved more collateral damage. (Cyborg’s cut “You should probably move” line is from this scene.)

In Snyder’s version, we would have had more shots of the world reacting to the threat, as red skies cover everything. We would also have had far fewer lame quips from Batman.

There also would have been a resolution of a thread involving Aquaman’s trident, which Batman gives back to him in one of the trailers (the released film doesn’t tell us why he has it, or show us him handing it over).

Again, all the Superman stuff is Whedon’s, except for a couple of interactions between Superman and Cyborg – which presumably happen after this cut shot of Cyborg trying to deal with the Mother Box on his own (man, Cyborg was hard-done-by in the studio cut).

Also, Snyder wanted Wonder Woman to decapitate Steppenwolf, presumably because he killed so many of her people. Whedon changed it to that whole thing about the smell of fear (what is it with Joss and smells?) leading to his downfall at the hands of the Parademons, who won’t kill a terrified Russian family, but they will kill their boss (anti-climax much?).

The first post-credits sequence, in which Flash races Superman, is Whedon. The second post-credits sequence (aka the one that doesn’t look like it was shot on a VHS camcorder) is Snyder’s

Netflix’s ‘The Punisher’ Totally Reboots His Marvel Origin Story

https://www.inverse.com/article/38383-marvel-netflix-punisher-origin-reboot-mcu-comics

As Marvel’s The Punisher heads to Netflix on November 17, it’s worth observing how much Frank Castle has evolved. On the surface, TV’s Jon Bernthal looks the same as Frank Castle does in the comics: Black clothes? Check. Leather trench? Check. White skull? Ammunition belts? Check, check. But behind the scary arsenal, and inside his actual skull, there lies a different Frank Castle than we’ve known since 1974. In short, the origin story of the character is now totally different from the comics.
