On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (Tuesday November 7th, 2017) Mark Ellis, Clarke Wolfe, Jon Schnepp and Ashley Mova discuss the following:

1) Disney having preliminary talks to buy 21st Century Fox TV and Movie properties

2) Justice League runtime mandated by WB CEO

3) Opening This Week

4) Jessica Chastain interested in playing adult Bev in IT Chapter Two

5) ‘Shazam!’ casts Asher Angel as Billy Baston

6) Mail Bag

7) Live Twitter Questions

Coming from a report at CNBC, it looks as though Disney is looking to expand its already impressive slate of film and television IPs by holding preliminary talks with 20th Century Fox to buy their film and tv properties; meaning X-Men, Deadpool and Fantastic Four could conceivably fall under the Marvel umbrella of films should the deal make. The report notes that this is very early on in the process, with CNBC noting that the two studios are not talking at the moment.

In a new report from The Wall Street Journal, the 1 hour and 59 minute runtime of Justice League was no accident and actually a mandate set forth by WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara after Batman v Superman’s critical reaction (and runtime itself at 151-minutes). The report notes that a lot of the post-production work was spent melding the tones of Whedon and Snyder’s work into one seamless movie; and while early cuts failed to achieve the right combination, audience scores over the later cuts reportedly mirror how Wonder Woman scored.

OPENING THIS WEEK

In a new interview with Jessica Chastain about her role in the upcoming Molly’s Game, Screenrant asked the actress if she would be interested in playing the adult version of the fan favorite character of Beverly Marsh in 2019’s follow up to the highest grossing horror movie of all time IT.

THR reports that Disney star Asher Angel has signed on to play Billy Baston in Shazam. The DC superhero story centers on a boy named Billy Batson who can transform into an adult superhero by uttering the magic word Shazam! Angel plays Jonah Beck, the love interest for Mack on Disney’s Andi Mack; and will be joining already cast Zachary Levi, Mark Strong and Grace Fulton in the David F Sandberg directed film.

    Schnepp, please make the jump to TV, you make me laugh so damn hard, and provide such an amazing perspective I could watch you break things down everyday. Keep it up brother!

    It's Billy Batson, not Baston

    Wait….at 4:53 we find out that WB owns 80% of all media and people are complaining about Disney?

    I smell a bias. Somehow it's never a problem for WB to have that much control but as soon as Disney tries to get in on the act people act like it's a travesty.

    I honestly don't care if any of the Collider crew expresses their personal viewpoints (like Schnepp). It's free speech man. If you don't like it, go watch something else. Nothings keeping you here.

    We need "The Baby X-Men" and "The Baby Avengers!" Amirite? Who's with me?

    I wish Collider would recognize that they live in a left wing bubble. The US is a center right country as a whole. It doesn't make sense to piss off half your potential audience. Your not that big.

  • CHELLOVATE 10 / 11 / 2017 Reply

    It's actually Billy BATSON guys! C'mon Schnepp!

  • Jason Hughes 10 / 11 / 2017 Reply

    Hey, I love FOX NEWS!!!

  • Donovan Carlson 10 / 11 / 2017 Reply

    Shut the fuck up about FOX News you ball of grease. It's not like left-wing news is any better. God! It's like you can't go a single video without getting political about something. All you do is virtue signal every chance you get. We're here to talk about movies, not politics.

  • Bryan Sowder 10 / 11 / 2017 Reply

    Analysts have put Fox's entertainment division (their IPs & library) at 20-30 Billion so this would be Disney's most expensive acquisition of all time….way bigger than Lucasfilm, Pixar, Marvel or anything else they have ever bought.

  • Harper Winter 11 / 11 / 2017 Reply

    I Prediction next Disney will be Talks To Acquire DreamWorks Animation & Oriental DreamWorks from Comcast

    You can't compare "Avatar" to "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" One franchise has a SIX film advantage/history…

    Slow down there "Sweaty"… And IMO those film's will "Crash and burn, Mav"

  • Vincecouk 12 / 11 / 2017 Reply

    Dredd is absolutely a top 20.

  • Pest 138 12 / 11 / 2017 Reply

    Avatar was a mediocre movie at best, people went for the special effects which were really cool but for me it had zero "re-watchability".(is that a word?)

  • DBuckyBoy 13 / 11 / 2017 Reply

    All I took from this is; Ashley: I have an eager beaver … I just wanna get to the juice!" … Just me? 😛
