BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Everything there is to know about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is here, including release date changes, new casting and all the latest news on the Batman vs. Superman project in one place.
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.
Aquaman fans, your tired, downtrodden road to a movie adaptation is almost at its glorious end. If this latest news is true, Warner Bros is more than serious about bringing the man who would be king to the big screen in the near future.
Head’s up! We have a bald-faced rumor regarding the looks of a certain super villain in Batman v Superman: Chrome Dome of Justice.
Should humor be banned, completely, from DC’s pending movies? Absolutely not. It’s OK to strike a serious tone with your characters (and somber Batman basically demands it). But some of the characters on the planned DC slate need levity and a lightheartedness if audiences are going to swallow their comic-booky exploits.
Because he is Superman – and he’s impervious to pain – the buckets of ice water just keep coming. Two. Three. Four. By the time we get to buckets five and six, the crew of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice have graduated to plastic garbage pails filled with chilled liquids.
When it comes to Man of Steel it sounds like Superman is going to venture from Smallville and Metropolis to the streets of our nation’s Capital, Washington, DC.
Momoa's been outspoken about this before: he apparently turned down the role of Drax in Guardians Of The Galaxy because he didn't think the role would push him as a performer and actor. Which might have been a bit too harsh, particularly to star Dave Bautista: what Momoa more likely dislikes is the pressures of these big films, and how they seem to dominate conversations.
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.
It's true that this year is an excellent case study, at least in regards to the domestic box office. The two biggest films of the year domestically are Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Lego Movie, which bowed in the spring. And aside from Transformers, no other film opened at the level of The Winter Soldier until Guardians Of The Galaxy, an August release.
If this approach is accurate, then Superman is indeed taking a backseat to Batman, and again being turned into a too-powerful demigod with questionable judgment, and not the hero who believed in the good of people and fought to protect the ideals of his adopted planet.
With dates for nine untitled films being announced this week, DC Comics has sparked the speculative fires at any and every movie site in town. If you're tired of Marvel running the show, and want to see some competition, continue reading on!
A rumor began circulating this summer claiming that the companies have seven titles currently in the works, including Justice League, Wonder Woman and Flash and Green Latnern projects. It’s hard to say exactly how much of that information was accurate in terms of naming in-development projects, but one thing is definitely for sure: there are a lot of DC Comics movies set to be unveiled over the next few years.
Or maybe it's something more. If Warner Bros. is serious about establishing their own superhero universe, they'll have to have a lynchpin, and it need not be one character. Batman and Superman are clearly the most visible heroes in DC's cinematic world thus far, but in the comics they hold down the foundations of the superhero world alongside Wonder Woman.
In the world of comic book movies, there is perhaps no bigger event in the world than San Diego Comic-Con. Every year, the major studios arrive in the coastal Southern California city to present previews of their biggest genre and fan-driven projects – and perhaps the most anticipated ones are the big blockbuster superhero films coming out over the next few years.
The Cinema Blend offices have been buzzing these past few days as we all get ready for one of the biggest events of the year in our industry: San Diego Comic-Con. The massive geek-fest will be kicking off on July 23rd, and just like every year we will once again have a team on the ground (including myself) covering the expo.
With the DC Comics Universe starting to expand in a big way in both film and television, many have been speculating about the possibility that they could one day cross over. Stephen Amell is going on his third year playing Green Arrow and Grant Gustin is just about to get his own series as The Flash - and fans have wondered if they could one day wind up being a part of a Justice League that also includes Henry Cavill's Superman, Ben Affleck's Batman, and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman.
Zack Snyder claims that he hasn’t films any scenes with Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman yet. The director went so far as to say “She’s working out and getting buffed and ripped.” But she hasn’t filmed any scenes yet, according to the director.
Zack Snyder pulled short of explaining, in detail, the nature of the relationship between Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) in the 2016 super-mega-blockbuster, emphasizing that the “v.” in the title helps “keep it from being a straight 'versus' movie, even in the most subtle way.”
Jason Momoa just refuses to acknowledge that he might be playing Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It was a couple weeks back when more than a few unnamed sources confirmed the casting, but the Game of Thrones star has been evading the question ever since.
