BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
Earlier today, fans got their first full look at the new Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The problem was that the the shots were taken by a fan on the street, and were unfortunately not very high quality. The good news is that director Zack Snyder has come to the rescue to deliver an official and utterly badass real look at the Caped Crusader's new ride :
Zack? If you are reading this, drop me an email. I have a lot of good questions about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the direction you hope to take this entire DC Cinematic Universe.
Spies have been all over the Michigan set for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, eager to catch a peek at any little snippet or detail for the recently rescheduled superhero mash-up. As such, each small piece of information has been analyzed and scrutinized beyond belief. Which is how we arrive at the photo above, which allegedly shows an interesting portrait being carried around.
Wonder Woman's new costume was unveiled at Comic Con today, and the fans went nuts. After the initial reaction, however, there's bound to be a lot of people wondering what happened to their favorite hero's color scheme of red, blue, and gold? Read on for an interesting theory that might answer your questions.
DC Entertainment co-publisher Jim Lee is throwing some serious shade on literal comic book interpretations.
Yesterday, Snyder took to his Twitter account to reveal our first look at Ben Affleck as Batman, and fans have been buzzing about it ever since. Practically every pixel of the image is fascinating, from the shrouded figure in front to the stylish vehicle in back to the dark, moody atmosphere that takes over the whole thing.
Last summer, Warner. Bros and director Zack Snyder announced that they had hired Ben Affleck to star opposite Henry Cavill in the untitled Man of Steel sequel known as Batman vs. Superman, and ever since then we’ve been waiting and begging to catch even the slightest glimpse at what we can expect from the latest big screen version of the Caped Crusader.
That's a major gamble for the studio, so the next few months will be spent very carefully selecting the roster for this superteam. The worst possible scenario is that these characters are too familiar, too generic, and ultimately bleed into each other. DC's got a long bench, but there's a massive fall-off from Superman and Batman to the next tier of heroes.
Of course, the shared universe is really what Marvel boasts over DC. The article claims that DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson has been encouraged to “develop diverse and even contradictory takes” on classic characters.
The next four years of the DC Cinematic Universe, all in the hands of one man. But is that a good idea?
While Man of Steel ended up being one of the most divisive blockbusters of 2013, it's hard to deny its success. Made for an expensive $225 million, the film wound up being a great investment for the folks at Warner Bros., as the Superman film wound up making nearly $670 million worldwide. The high grosses were enough to secure director Zack Snyder the job of helming the sequel, the still untitled Batman vs. Superman, and now comes news that he has secured the job of directing the Justice League movie as well.
Snyder seems confident in his portrayal of the Last Son Of Krypton, however. Comparing it to Watchmen (while squashing that silly Gilliam beef), a film which he most certainly has not acknowledged its critics, Snyder says he's brought the character into the real world.
The director of Rise Of The Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’Hoole is going to save movies from the Terry Gilliams of the world. SHOTS FIRED.
Trying to introduce The Joker into this universe, which leans heavily on science-fiction (so far) and already has to juggle introductions for Bruce Wayne and Wonder Woman, could be the straw that breaks the sequel’s back.
For the past few weeks we've been hearing regular rumors regarding the possibility that Wonder Woman could show up in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie, and today those rumors have been confirmed. It's now being reported that Gal Gadot has signed on to play a key female lead role in the Man of Steel sequel, and thanks to a quote from director Zack Snyder we now know that she will be playing Princess Diana of Themyscira.
"It was fantastic. I'm already a flag waver for this movie, but the costume, it blew my mind," Smith said. "I think everyone is just gonna be like 'Holy ****!' It's its own thing, man. It's like we haven't been down this path at all."
Holy sidekick scoop, Batman! Grayson, as you know, is the adopted son of Bruce Wayne who assumed the identity of Robin so he could fight crime alongside of Batman. As Dick grew older, he dropped the Robin moniker and assumed the mantle of Nightwing.
"Zack [Snyder] hasn't talked to me about it, so I don't have to worry about it! I'll worry about it when I have to worry about it, and then, if I'm lucky, I'll have an idea," Zimmer says. "If I have an idea, I can do something with that, but if I don't have an idea, then my good idea is going to be, 'Get somebody else.'"
