BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
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.
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.
Headís 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 DCís pending movies? Absolutely not. Itís 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 Ė and heís impervious to pain Ė 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 will we finally get a Wonder Woman movie? The infamous Amazonian will be introduced in Snyderís movie when it reaches theaters on May 6, 2016.
When it comes to Man of Steel it sounds like Superman is going to venture from Smallville and Metropolis to the streets of our nationís 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. Itís 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.
