Justice League

Production on Justice League took a tragic turn when Zach Synder had to step down and thus left the film in Joss Whedon’s capable hands (having directed The Avengers). The DC franchise did need a boost, which it received with Wonder Woman, and the only likely source it would come from would be Zach Synder whose cut of Batman vs Superman was far better received than the theatrical cut so it was sad, however understandable, to see Zach Synder leave the project.

Peter finds this difficult as he desperately waits for a call from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) that will be the starting point of his career in The Avengers.

Of late Marvel and Disney have been giving opportunities to up and coming directors to have a crack at the big time. Shane Black was given Iron Man 3, the Russo brothers were given Captain America: Winter Soldier (which would lead to Captain America: Civil War) and James Gunn was given both Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Due to the success of What we do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Kiwi director Taika Waititi was the next director given the chance to play with a big budget.

Happy Death Day

Theresa "Tree" Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) dreads her birthday because it reminds her of her mother, (who shares the same birthday) who died three years previously. Her misery is further compounded when she is killed by a baby face mask wearing killer. However, Theresa “wakes up” again and quickly realises that the events of the day are the exact same as the one before. To break free from this never ending curse, Theresa must find a way to break it and perhaps finding the killer’s identity may do just that.
