Henry Cavill Hopes That The Justice League Movie Won't Happen Right Away
In hindsight, Zack Snyder's Man of Steel wasn't quite the bridge to a Justice League movie that we all thought it would be. While the film did contain some hints at a larger DC Cinematic Universe, with references to Batman's Wayne Enterprises, Supergirl and Cyborg, it didn't have anything nearly as epic as, say, Nick Fury appearing in the post-credits sequence of Iron Man to try and recruit Tony Stark for the Avengers Initiative.
Can Man Of Steel 2 Really Open In 2014?
Part of me thinks that Snyder and his team should be given time to develop what they have started in Man of Steel. At the same time, I can understand Warner’s sense of urgency, and a desire to strike while the iron is hot.
Man Of Steel Writer Explains How Superman Leads To The New Batman
There's no moment in Man of Steel that explicitly announces itself as the beginning of a larger superhero universe, the way Nick Fury arrived at the end of Iron Man to tell him he wasn't the only superhero on their radar. But if you pay even the slightest attention to the way superhero movies are made these days, you know that Man of Steel is intended as the kickoff to a much, much bigger world of films
Justice League LEGO Spoof Might Be Closest We Ever Get To A Movie
The plot of this clever short features exactly what you would want from a Justice League movie, with The Joker teaming with Lex Luthor for a diabolical plot that is foiling Batman, Superman and the entire team. The humor, meanwhile, pokes fun at everything we know about JLA.
Zack Snyder Confirms He'll Be Offered Justice League If Man Of Steel Succeeds
It must be a weird kind of agony to be Zack Snyder right now, having a completed movie that he probably knows is pretty good, but not yet knowing how the audiences will receive it-- and how they have the power to completely transform his career.
Christopher Nolan Won't Be Doing Justice League, Man Of Steel May Open Doors To Larger Universe
For as long as Warner Bros. has been talking about doing a Justice League movie, fans have questioned why the studio would choose against going the Marvel route - creating a cohesive cinematic universe that puts all of the superheroes together in one world.
Ryan Reynolds Isn't Eager To Reprise Green Lantern In Justice League Movie
Despite making $219 million worldwide, the big budget CGI spectacle (that cost a whopping $200 mil to make) was loathed by critics, some of whom are big fans of the comics in their own right. This contributed to the decline of Reynolds' prospects as a viable leading man. And he has no interest in making the same mistake twice. Well, "very little" interest anyway.
Christopher Nolan In, Christian Bale Out In Latest Justice League Rumors
Gossipy high schoolers probably don't have as many rumors floating around them as DC’s upcoming (or is it?) Justice League movie does. This film has already in theory mingled with more actors and directors than most of Warner Bros. yearly output. So let’s take a look at the most recent facts and fictions
Why Christian Bale's Batman Absolutely Needs To Be In Man Of Steel
DC and Warner need that moment. It instantly would shift a modicum of momentum back into JLA’s favor, proving that the powers behind the massively successful Dark Knight trilogy were on board with what until now is only a speculative Justice League movie. The project, for the first time, would feel real.
Christopher Nolan Taking Over Justice League, And Bringing Bale Back As Batman?
We've gotten really worried about the Justice League movie lately, with news that Warner Bros. had thrown out Will Beall's script for the film, and a lot of us worried the movie-- like George Miller's attempt years ago-- would fall apart entirely. But of course, Justice League carries enormous potential for the studio, their version of the massively successful The Avengers, and they're not going to give up that fast. Especially if they've got an ace up their sleeve to make it happen with aplomb
Three Reasons The Justice League Movie Won't Open In 2015, Or Probably Ever
News moves fast around here, and it’s wholly possible JLA fans missed an important piece of recent information, so here are the three reasons why I’m convinced the Justice League movie will NOT be in theaters in 2015 (and why I believe we’ll likely never see it at all).
Ben Affleck Was Asked To Play Batman In The Justice League Movie?
Latino Review editor Elmayimbe tweets a “Fanboy Fact of the Day” that when the studio courted Affleck or the director’s gig, they also wanted the actor to play Batman in the ensemble. Is it true? Maybe, but what does that gets us? It's still not happening.
Has The Justice League Script Been Scrapped?
When Warner Bros. released Ruben Fleischer's Gangster Squad in January there were a lot of comic book fans who muttered, "Uh oh" under their breath. Those who have been following the developing Justice League movie know that Gangster Squad writer Will Beall has been handling the project's script for a while now...
Man Of Steel's Box Office Will Determine The Future Of The Justice League Movie
If Marvel Studios' Iron Man hadn't been a hit all the way back in 2008, it's hard to say if they would have been able to build the massively successful Marvel Cinematic Universe that we have today. The Jon Favreau film made $585 million worldwide during its theatrical run, which was able to propel the company past the disappointing Incredible Hulk and eventually on to The Avengers, which now stands as the third biggest box office hit of all time.
Has The Justice League Lineup Been Revealed?
When making a superhero team-up film one of the obvious first things that needs to be determined is which superheros will actually make the team. For example, while characters like Black Panther, Ant-Man, and Wasp have all been members of The Avengers at one point or another, while making the film Marvel Studios and Joss Whedon ultimately settled on a lineup of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye.
