Disneyland Still Doesn’t Have An Opening Date So Let’s Just Engage in Rank Speculation About It Instead

Hi everyone, you may recall that the last time we tried to glance at the crystal ball to see when Disneyland might reopen, Disney was accepting reservations starting on June 1, 2020. As we approach that date, there is a new cutoff for new reservations per Disneyland’s site (as of the most recent update as this goes to press of May 8) — July 1, 2020. Does this mean that Disneyland will be opening on July 1?  Does that mean that it definitely won’t be open before July 1? Officially, it doesn’t mean anything until Disney announces a reopening date, and the only thing certain right now is uncertainty, and any reservations made or held at the moment should be considered tentative until we hear something official from Disney one way or the other.

For those of you with Annual Passes, you can check out our last article on this topic for details on your options during the closure. For additional details on how other aspects of Disney travel are impacted, including the myriad different individual tickets, group tickets, special events and dining, please check Disney’s COVID-19 impact site.

So, we obviously don’t know when the park is going to open, but we can play soothsayer and have fun trying to guess, right? Well, I’m not going to wade into that minefield, but you’re free to do so. Here’s some info to help fuel your rampant guesswork, including some information that might, emphasis on might, offer some insight on what a COVID-19-era Disneyland Resort will look like:

So, once again, we really don’t know when Disneyland will reopen, but hopefully this gives you something to needle over in the interim while we wait for an announcement. As soon as we know, we’ll be sure to let you know!

Rumored: Johnny Depp “In Talks” to Play Joker in the New Batman Movie

Rumored: Johnny Depp “In Talks” to Play Joker in the New Batman Movie. Director and Producer Matt Reeves is currently working on The Batman, which is said to focus on the formative years of Bruce Wayne becoming Batman and hero of Gotham. Recently, rumors began spreading that Warner Bros and DC were “in talks” with actor Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean) to play the most iconic villain in superhero history, The Joker.

Kevin Smith shared the rumor stating, “There’s a big rumor going around that says they’ve been talking to Johnny Depp about possibly playing The Joker in Matt Reeves, The Batman movie. Now, this is the first anyone’s even heard about there being a possibility of a Joker in The Batman movie on the heals of the Joker which won Oscars and made over a billion dollars and [Joaquin Phoenix] just locked that part down. But it looks like, you know, now this is [an] Oscar bait part. Who the fk wouldn’t want to play The Joker? Heath Ledger won an Oscar, Joaquin Phoenix won an Oscar, and of all the actors out there that could possibly roll the dice on the joker, Johnny Depp? Actually kinda fking perfect.”

The rumor has NOT been confirmed by the film studios, but it does have fans wondering why Joaquin Phoenix is not being considered for the role. One possibility it the established timeline in Joker does not match up with the storyline in Matt Reeves’ version of The Batman, or that Reeves is looking to establish the character for multiple projects and simply wants to create his own casting choices for the roles.
