Weekly Recap – Wonder Woman Reshoots, Doctor Strange Rules Box Office

Sometimes it’s difficult to get all the most important film news in one time-saving article, so that’s why our Fly has decided to bring you a new ‘Weekly Recap‘ of the previous week’s biggest movie news every Monday.

This week has seen Marvel triumph yet again at the box office, while it’s closest rival DC Comics is continuing to see it’s newly conceived Cinematic Universe struggle to get a footing.

See below for the highlights from last week (31 Oct – 6 Nov):

Wonder Woman Ordered Back to London For Reshoots

Thing’s certainly aren’t getting easier for Warner Bros. struggling DC Cinematic Universe, as the latest blockbuster, Wonder Woman, has seen it’s post-production disrupted after the studio announced it would film two weeks worth of reshoots.

Despite production heading back to London, it’s not necessarily due to the recent accusations that the film is ‘a mess’, and may in fact just be for the purpose of filming additional footage – something very common in Hollywood.

Doctor Strange Works Magic On Worldwide Box Office

Marvel Studios really can’t seem to do much wrong as far as cinema audiences and critics are concerned, with it’s latest offering, Doctor Strange, earning an eye-watering $350 million worldwide in under a week.

The newest character to receive the big-screen treatment has won over critics, with leading man Benedict Cumberbatch proving he’s one of the studios most exciting stars, so much so that Marvel has already signed him up to appear in next year’s Thor: Ragnarok ad 2018’s colossal release Avengers: Infinity War.

With such a huge turnover in only it’s first week of release, Doctor Strange could go on to break the billion dollar mark once it’s cinematic run has come to an end.

Deadpool 2 Taking Over Vancouver In January

Despite losing director Tim Miller recently, Ryan Reynolds and the Deadpool 2 crew are heading to Vancouver in January as production on the eagerly anticipated sequel begins.

Clearly Reynolds and the money-wigs over a Twentieth Century Fox are confident enough that directors will be queuing to take over the record-breaking franchise, as they’ve officially announced the production start date.

It has been rumoured that leading man Ryan Reynolds was trying to get Oscar-winning visionary Quentin Tarantino to take up the reigns, having been first choice for the directors helm back when Reynolds was still trying to get the project off the ground.
