In a historic move, Warner Bros. has tapped Chinese-American Cathy Yan to direct a DC spinoff based on Harley Quinn, starring Margot Robbie, according to Deadline.
Why it matters: This makes Yan the first Asian female director ever to helm a superhero film and also makes her the second female director DC has hired (after Patty Jenkins who directed “Wonder Woman”).
After an arguably tumultuous year for DC movies, Warner Bros. has decided to excite everyone with the announcement of a leadership change in the beginning of 2018.
At the center of this massive change is the promotion of talented film producer Walter Hamada, who will oversee the production of its comic book movies as DC Film’s new president. He will be taking the reins from Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, who were placed in charge of DC Films in 2016 after the disappointing performance of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
There is no question that international action star Daniel Dae Kim can pull off any superhero role, even the iconic Superman from DC Comics.
The talented Korean American actor certainly has the build, looks and charisma of someone who could classify as superhero material. That is why a GIF image of him simply removing his glasses has sparked buzz on Twitter about him being fit to play the man from Krypton.
A Japanese photographer has been mesmerizing both photography and comic book fans by merging the worlds of DC and Marvel comics into surreal and meticulously done images.
The Osaka-based photographer, who uses the Instagram handle Hot.kenobi, creates playful, fun scenes with eye-popping visuals using the action figures of our favorite heroes from rival universes, which he posts on his social media accounts.
