10 Ways Bumblebee Differed From The Comics

The Transformers franchise is known for having a wide roster of popular robot fighters who hail from both the Autobots and the Decepticons – the two sides of the eons-long Cybertronian war. When it comes to the former faction, the only one who could rival their immovable leader Optimus Prime is the underdog Bumblebee: a small Transformer who’s best known for switching into a yellow Volkswagen Beetle.

Due to his popularity, Bumblebee was added into Michael Bay’s Transformers movies and even got a solo-movie but there were some important details left behind in the blockbuster series’ source material. Over the years, Bumblebee has changed in the comics in ways that the movies don’t show or merely hinted at. Here are 10 such ways that the Bumblebee seen in the movies differed from the comics.

Chinese box office down 2.7% in first half of 2019 as market woes start to bite
Local productions were hit hardest, grossing a combined $2.15bn (RMB14.8bn), for a 47.5% market share.

China’s box office decreased by 2.7% to $4.5bn (RMB31.17bn) in the first half of 2019, according to figures from Chinese industry website Mtime, as a range of issues, including tightening censorship and the recent tax clampdown, started to take their toll on an unpredictable market.

The decline marks the first time since 2011 in which box office has not shown positive growth in the first half of the year, a period that includes the most lucrative box office season, Chinese New Year (late January or early

It director in talks for DC Films’ The Flash solo movie

Warner Bros. and DC Films’ long-percolating The Flash solo movie looks set for another shake-up behind the scenes, with THR reporting that It director Andy Muschietti is in line to become the latest filmmaker to take a crack at the Scarlet Speedster.

As per the site, Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein recently stepped down due to creative differences, echoing the fates of Seth Graheme-Smith (The Lego Batman Movie) and Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), both of whom were attached to direct the project at one point or another.

In addition to Muschietti coming on board to direct, WB and DC are also keen to bring in Bumblebee screenwriter Christina Hodson to pen a new script, having presumably been impressed with her work on next year’s Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).

That means the studio has rejected the most recent draft of the script,

The Flash solo movie is still alive, yet the team trying to bring the Scarlet Speedster to the big screen behind the scenes is in for yet another huge shake-up.

According to a new report, both Andres Muschietti and Christina Hodson are circling the project as a new package deal. The offers haven't been made just yet, but things are said to be trending in the right direction. Prior to this turn of events, Game Night directing duo John Francis Daley

No offer has been made yet, but if the deal goes through Muschietti will also produce the movie with his partner and sister Barbara Muschietti and Michael Disco.

Muschietti would replace “Spider-Man: Homecoming” writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who were signed last year to direct the film after replacing “Dope” helmer Rick Famuyiwa, who left the film in 2016. Seth Grahame-Smith was also attached to direct at one point.

Ezra Miller remains attached to play Barry Allen, also known as The Flash in the DC Extended Universe movie. Miller has portrayed The Flash in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Suicide Squad” and “Justice League.” The Flash character originated during the 1950s when police scientist Barry Allen gained super-speed when bathed by

DC's The Flash Movie To Hire It Director Andy Muschietti and Bumblebee Writer Christina Hodson

We’ve got some big news to share with you regarding WB and DC’s The Flash movie and I think it’ll make fans happy. According to THR, It director Andy Muschietti is in talks to direct the film and the studio is looking to hire Bumblebee and Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson.

It was previously reported that star Ezra Miller was clashing with writer and directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. The actor didn’t like the light-hearted tone of their vision and ended up hiring acclaimed comics author Grant Morrison to write another script that would be a bit darker.

The studio was going to look at both scripts and then decide how they wanted to proceed. Well, it looks like the studio decided to throw both scripts out the window and are going to start from scratch with a new team. Ezra Miller is

Both he and Famuyiwa left the project over creative differences with Warner Bros.

Dave Bautista Slams The Fast And The Furious, Says They’re Not Good Movies

Though Dave Bautista ranks alongside Dwayne Johnson and John Cena as one of the most successful wrestlers-turned actors, the Guardians of the Galaxy star believes that his career and talents are a bit different than The Fast and the Furious and Bumblebee leads.

In an interview with the Tampa Bay Times a few months back, he said that he didn’t like when people compared him to Cena or The Rock, and here’s why:

“Those guys are wrestlers who became movie stars. I’m … something else. I was a wrestler. Now, I’m an actor.”

He also explained the distinction between a serious actor and a movie star, saying that with The Rock in particular, he doesn’t find him to be a very great actor.

“Rock was, in a way, a movie star before he was even a movie star. There is something about him that’s really special.

Comic Book Review – Transformers/Ghostbusters #1

Ricky Church reviews Transformers/Ghostbusters #1…

I was born in the late 80’s. Before I was old enough to get into a lot of the things I enjoy now, such as Batman, Superman or James Bond, I gravitated towards the original Transformers cartoon series and Ghostbusters. More than any other 80’s property popular at the time, the adventures of the Autobots and Ghostbusters drew my young brain in a way G.I. Joe or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles couldn’t. So imagine my reaction when Idw announced their plans to celebrate both franchises 35th anniversaries with a Transformers/Ghostbusters comic crossover written and drawn by Idw’s usual Ghostbusters team Eric Burnham and Dan Schoening. Coming off the recent Star Trek vs. Transformers crossover, does Transformers/Ghostbusters #1 offer something different enough while meeting some high levels of anticipation?

The story begins on Cybertron with a slight alteration to the G1 Transformers continuity.

Warner Bros. Is Reportedly Looking at Daisy Ridley to Star in DC's Batgirl

With Daisy Ridley’s run on Star Wars complete, she is open to all kinds of different film projects. She could even take on a new franchise if she wanted to at this point.

Well, it looks like she might get that chance with DC. According to a report from We Got This Covered, Warner Bros. is looking at casting Daisy Ridley and Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why) to star in Batgirl. Ridley is said to be their top choice at the moment.

Nothing is confirmed. This is just a rumor, and we don’t even know if the studio has been meeting with actresses yet. If Ridley or Langford are really up for the role, I’d actually be fine if either one of them were cast. It was previously rumored that the studio was looking at Kristen Stewart for the role. Jane Levy (Evil Dead) also wants in on the action.

James Gunn's The Suicide Squad Shoots September Through January in Atlanta?

  • MovieWeb
Warner Bros. is reportedly getting ready to start production on their long awaited The Suicide Squad. It looks like shooting will take place at the end of September in Atlanta and go all the way through January 2020. Gunn has been teasing his storyboards for the sequel on social media and casting is currently taking place. Many Hollywood productions have been boycotting Georgia and the Atlanta area over a controversial new abortion bill, so it would not be surprising to see Gunn's production move elsewhere.

The Suicide Squad is believed to start production on September 23rd and last until January 31st. While director James Gunn hasn't confirmed, it is believed the movie will be more of its own thing as opposed to a straight sequel to David Ayers' 2016 movie, which sounds like the right direction to go down. While Suicide Squad was a hit at the box office, it was torn

Comic Book Review – Transformers #7

Ricky Church reviews Transformers #7…

After taking a bit of a break from the main plot in the previous issue, Brian Ruckley emphasizes how much more drastic the situation on Cybertron has become in the aftermath of Rubble’s murder. Transformers #7 is pretty effective in its emphasis of what this means for many of the characters going forward, whether it’s through Bumblebee’s grief or the political ramifications Orion has to deal with. Ruckley moves pieces into some interesting places that makes the series more intriguing.

It’s somewhat surprising to learn Rubble actually died at the end of Transformers #5. As the audience’s mouthpiece and eyes for the reboot, as well as being a pretty central character, the fact Ruckley has taken him off the board is a game changer for the series. On the one hand, it’s shocking Rubble has died before getting to really know Cybertron

And of course, throughout this all, we have the beloved toy line, which has now enthralled generations and remains one of the biggest selling toy brands of all time.

To celebrate the 35th anniversary, the lovely people at Hasbro were kind enough to send us over a free sample of some of the latest Transformers toys – and there’s certainly plenty to love for old school Generation One fans here this year.
