Like Star Wars, but wish it were a little more like Batman v Superman? Zack Snyder has you covered. The DC director has taken it upon himself to mash up the Batman v Superman trailer with Star Wars, reframing the conflict as “Dark Side Knight v Superjedi.” It’s a cute little exercise, but one that’s bound to ruffle some feathers in both fandoms — especially once you realize this means he’s cast Batman as some sort of Sith lord.

Batman and Superman’s actual battle in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may have been over in minutes, but the debate over the movie has raged on.

Chadwick Boseman is a bonafide Marvel superhero now, having made his debut as Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War in May. But he’s a superhero fan, too, and like a lot of us he set aside some time earlier this year to check out that other big superhero-on-superhero movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Unfortunately, also like a lot of us, he came away disappointed.
Where Boseman differs from the general moviegoing public, though, is that he knows firsthand what the process of making a big-budget superhero movie is like. The Marvel star recently shared his thoughts on what exactly went wrong with Warner Bros. / DC’s Batman v Superman. Read More »
If you’ve already seen Suicide Squad this weekend, you know that there are plenty of references to the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, not to mention some easter eggs and set-ups for future films in the DC Comics cinematic universe. However, there’s one blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-detail that changes our perspective on a certain event that’s only alluded to in the aforementioned superhero battle.
In Batman v Superman, there’s a key moment where Bruce Wayne takes a moment to glance at the suit of his former sidekick Robin as it’s displayed in a glass case. Spray painted on the suit is, “Ha ha ha! Joke’s on you, Batman!” We’ve all accepted this to mean that The Joker killed Robin, however, a little moment in Suicide Squad indicates that he wasn’t the only one responsible.

When Lucasfilm announced earlier this month that Alden Ehrenreich would lead the Han Solo anthology film, they were just confirming what fans already knew — the trades had revealed the casting months ago. But not every report and rumor pans out so nicely. For example, there’s been a lot of speculation that Ehrenreich’s Han Solo could cameo in this winter’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, director Gareth Edwards has gone on the record to shut down the rumors.
Meanwhile, over at Warner Bros., Suicide Squad director David Ayer is battling a pesky and persistent fan theory of his own. Many have wondered if Jared Leto‘s Joker could be Jason Todd, whose defaced costume was seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Ayer insists that’s not the case. Read More »

The first 10 minutes of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (and the Ultimate Edition) is a flashback where Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) rushes into Metropolis to help save as many people as he can. The sequence takes us back to the climax of Man of Steel where the world engine is dispatched with, but Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod (Michael Shannon) have it out one last time, destroying much of the city in the process. However, Batman v Superman only gives us Bruce Wayne’s perspective while Man of Steel focuses on Superman. But one fan has fixed that.
A new video put together by a fan takes footage from both the Batman v Superman opening scene and the Man of Steel climax and combines them into a singular scene where we get the perspective of both of our heroes during this destructive action sequence.

Last week I watched Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition. I’m sure you’ve read about this — it’s Zack Snyder’s three-hour director’s cut of the film. The Ultimate Edition has had quite a few positive reviews as opposed to the half-hour shorter theatrical cut which was eviscerated by critics and moviegoers. The Ultimate Edition is a better film than the theatrical cut, I’m sure of that. So why did they release an inferior version of the movie in theaters? Why can’t the Zack Snyder release his director’s cuts theatrically?

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
One of the problems that some people had with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was the fact that Batman seemed to be a little too eager and willing to kill people without hesitation. The Dark Knight is known for showing restraint when it comes to dealing with criminals, almost always choosing to let the law deal with them instead of flat-out taking their lives. However, in Batman v Superman, the more grizzled, reckless take on the Caped Crusader just didn’t seem to care. Now a new video runs through the Batman kill count from Batman v Superman.
