After a low-quality bootleg did the rounds twenty-four hours ago, Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. released a legit version of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer.

Batman v Superman trailer

Here’s the first full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it sees the world of DC’s comic book heroes reeling from the aftereffects of Man of Steel.

As humanity struggles to come to terms with the presence of the godlike Superman (Henry Cavill) we hear a clamor of voices discussing the post-Superman world. Some sound like real-world quotes — are Charlie Rose and Neil deGrasse Tyson heard early on?  — while others, such as Jesse Eisenberg‘s Lex Luthor, are definitely unique residents of the DC Movie Universe.

And then there’s Jeremy Irons as Alfred, who is heard in voiceover after the rumbling dies down, and Ben Affleck, whose Batman looks incredibly huge even without armor. The confrontation promised by the movie’s title is teased with a question phrased as both a command, and a threat: “Tell me… do you bleed?”

Lucas Till Xmen

Thought ditching the old-timers from X-Men: Days of Future Past would make X-Men: Apocalypse a bit less cumbersome? Maybe so, but there are still members of the younger cast roster signing on for the new movie. Bryan Singer‘s mutant extravaganza continues to grow with the confirmed return of Lucas Till, who played Alex Summers a.k.a. Havok in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Wonder Woman director quits

From the outside, director Michelle MacLaren‘s departure from Wonder Woman came as a surprise. Even as Patty Jenkins stepped up to replace her a few days later, we kept wondering what the heck had happened. From the inside, however, the split was far less abrupt.

A new report delves deeper into the “creative differences” that drove MacLaren away. Among other things, it reveals MacLaren envisioned Wonder Woman as a Braveheart-esque origin tale, while studio Warner Bros. wanted… not that. Get the inside story of the Wonder Woman director shakeup after the jump.  Read More »

Preacher Star

Update: Seth Rogen has officially confirmed Dominic Cooper will play Jesse Custer in Preacher.

Original story follows.

An English actor will play a Texas preacher who gains incredible power in AMC’s series Preacher. After being floated as a likely lead for the series some weeks ago, Dominic Cooper is finally in the process of making a deal to play Jesse Custer, “a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is able to influence people after after he merges with a heavenly creature.”

That’s a nice way of saying that Custer sort of merges with Genesis, the offspring of an angel and a demon, which gives him power that may rival that of God. Or that’s how it is in the comics, anyway; sounds like there will be a few changes made here and there as Preacher becomes a TV show.

While Marvel’s TV shows are definitely part of the same universe as Marvel’s movies, the characters overlap only occasionally. And when they do, it tends to be movie characters dropping by the show, not the other way around.

But it sounds like some of the MCU’s upcoming small-screen stars will get the chance to crash the big-screen party. According to a new rumor, Netflix’s Defenders team will show up in an upcoming Avengers movie.
