Normally, environmental issues are not a big topic of discussion here on /Film. But when the star and director of one of the most anticipated films in history talks about it, well, we listen.
The movie is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and director Zack Snyder, along with Batman himself, Ben Affleck, have released a video for National Save the Bats Week. In it, you’ll learn why bats are important to a healthy ecosystem, why some bats are in danger of extinction and what you can do to help. Check out the Batman v Superman bat video below. Read More »
Earlier this year, Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder called a local Detroit radio station to defend Aquaman. This was before Jason Momoa was officially announced as the character, so it created a bit of a stir. Plus, how often do major film directors call local radio during production to talk about their film? Not often.
Well, Snyder is at it again. The production of Batman v Superman is almost done in the Detroit, Michigan area and the director called the same radio station to thank the city for their support. He also offered an update on the production, teased returning for Justice League and more about Aquaman. Listen to the audio and read his Batman v Superman Detroit quotes below. Read More »
Some very cool, and very plausible Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rumors are circulating this week. They both concern Batman, whose whole entry into the new DC Multiverse is bathed in shadow. We do know he has two Batsuits in the film. The one in the above photo as well as the Bat Armor revealed in the Comic-Con teaser (you can read about that here). What we don’t know is exactly what the Bat-Armor does. A new rumor adds some exciting, but very spoilery details to our understanding of it, however.
The same source also reports Batman has not one, but two Batmobiles in the film. That would be a first. Below, read more about each of these Batman v Superman rumors. Read More »
Besides the fans, the biggest winners of the recent DC Warner Bros. announcement were Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher. With a simple press release, each went from up and coming actor to movie star with their own franchise. Momoa, who’ll play Aquaman, is obviously thrilled. We have yet to hear from Miller, who plays The Flash. Now Cyborg’s alter-ego, Ray Fisher, has spoken out.
The actor, best known for his work on Broadway, told Entertainment Weekly he had no idea DC was planning a Cyborg solo movie when he first signed onto play the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In fact, producers didn’t tell him of the plan until hours before the official announcement was made. He also confirmed he’s long since finished shooting his part in Snyder’s film and met several other members of the Justice League. That could give a hint as to what the role actually is in the film.
