BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Avengers: Age of Ultron has probably prompted more remakes, mashups and spoofs than any other film in internet history. Now watch our superheroes in the style of Zack Snyder's Watchmen.
Actors never know what they’ll be doing when they get the news of a lifetime. For Ezra Miller, his revelation that he was going to play the Flash in the Man of Steel-led DC cinematic universe came when he was having a bit of an Eat, Pray, Love situation. There was a lot of eating in a foreign place, and we’re sure there was a lot of love and praying going around after Zack Snyder dropped the news.
As the director of Man of Steel as well as the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League movies, Zack Snyder clearly has quite a bit of sway when it comes to the growing DC Cinematic Universe at Warner Bros. So far this clout has led him to direct some huge blockbusters, but it seems it may also be opening the door for his friends.
We have until 2017 before we’ll see the first part of the Justice League movie hit theaters, and apparently things are moving along well…in fact, a little too well. Why is this a problem? The latest rumor suggests that, like with Man of Steel, the script is the main issue with Justice League. Only this time around, it’s for the opposite reason.
The Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice fight scenes between its two leads will consist of a cocky billionaire going toe to toe with an alien who really doesn’t have any weaknesses at all - but apparently this won’t be as preposterously one-sided as one might think it would be.
Making movies is hard work that takes a long, long time - and that's especially true for major blockbusters like Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film was in production for more than half of the year in 2014, with the cast and crew working side by side to make the best feature they could.
For many fans of the comic book movie genre, the word "Watchmen" tends to evoke a rather confused, frustrating, bittersweet set of opinions. For actor, comedian and geek auteur Patton Oswalt, it was apparently no different. Watch as he sits down with one of the film's stars to express that.
One of the biggest rumors to spring up at the end of last week was that Zack Snyder's upcoming comic book movie epic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would be split into two films, but now a pretty high-up source has done his part to debunk the stories.
There's a big rumor going around that Batman V Superman could be split into two films with the first coming a lot earlier that we had expected.
Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is trying to contain an impressive number of secrets as it works its way through production, and certainly on that list is the identity of the character who will be played by Holly Hunter. The Academy Award-winning actress first signed on to the production back in Apri, but the actress, filmmakers and studio have been playing coy about her role.
What surprises me is that Zack Snyder is still filming. We have been running reports of Batman v Superman shooting since earlier this year, and the notes have been flooding in for months. Snyder could have enough in the proverbial can for 11 Batman v Superman movies.
Reading Christopher Nolan's thoughts on how movies should be made just makes us wish he would have taken Justice League when he had the chance. See what he had to say about a key piece of the comic movie landscape after the jump.
So far, all signs are pointing to Ben Affleck's Batman radically different from the normal Caped Crusader that we're used to seeing on the big screen. The new Batman, so far, has been described as more seasoned and older than we're used to seeing him. But at the very least we know what hasn't changed: he still has the voice that makes the ladies pay attention.
Given its title and release date about one year before Justice League is set to come out, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is expected to feature many more heroes than just those mentioned in the title (and no, I'm not talking about Wonder Woman).
This past summer’s San Diego Comic-Con was a rather disappointing one for comic book movie fans. While many – including myself – had incredibly high expectations of big reveals, we were actually left learning very little big news. This past week, however, has been what I expected Comic-Con to be.
Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII are without question the two biggest Hollywood films currently in production, but what's strange is the fact that there appears to be a bizarre rivalry that exists between them. As it turns out, there is one man fully responsible for the whole thing.
Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is set to return to the old stomping grounds of both Man of Steel and Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight movies to turn one of the Midwest's great cities into Metropolis for four or five days in early November.
Batman v Superman is reportedly getting ready to shoot scenes in what could wind up being Wayne Manor. This story, however, comes with a twist. The house that is said to be in use is a rather decrepit old brick building with boarded windows and an unkempt lawn. Obviously this isn’t a typical description of the stately manor from DC Comics, but it could tell us something interesting about what Zack Snyder and his crew are doing with their incarnation of Dark Knight.
The ball is in your court now, Mr. Snyder. What are you planning to share next? Listen to our Monday Movie Memo, perhaps. Take a few of our suggestions. Let’s keep this game going, gentlemen.
Ben Affleck has gotten a lot of stick for his casting as The Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. But that's not going to stop him from leaving it all on the field, in fact he has a secret weapon in his arsenal that he thinks might win the day. Let's just hope it doesn't misfire.
