Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

The Dawn Of The Justice League & Wonder Woman Logo

Hoping to capture our attention in a big way today, Warner Bros. and DC have been drip-feeding little nuggets from the Justice League, culminating in a TV special that will launch looks at some of the new films and introduce a second Suicide Squad trailer. Until then, we have a logo for Wonder Woman and an image of the Justice League.

First up is that logo for Wonder Woman to go along with the film that will pencil in a lot more of the character's backstory following her introduction in this year's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Played by Gal Gadot, we'll meet Princess Diana and some of her family (including her mother, played by Connie Nielsen) as she has her first encounter with US air intelligence officer Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), a man who will have a huge effect on her life, and she on his. We've yet to see much from the film, which is still in production, but we'd expect a few more images to arrive soon enough.

Then there's the Justice League image – do these people not smile for a group portrait? – which offers a first glimpse of The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) alongside Bats (Ben Affleck), Supes (Henry Cavill) Wonder Woman (Gadot) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa). Looks like Green Lantern, who is still yet to be cast, won't be popping up in Dawn Of Justice, unless he was the one using the awesome power of his ring as a camera to snap the others... "In brightest day, in blackest night, No picture shall escape my sight. Because the lens is great!"

He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
