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. Watch the Batman v Superman and Man of Steel mash-up after the jump. Read More »
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?

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. How many people do you think Batman killed? Place your bets. Read More »

That’s the entire sequence with Bruce Wayne’s parents dying, as well as his witnessing to the fight between Superman and General Zod from Man of Steel.
But what you’re probably really curious about is the Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition reviews. Is this new cut of Batman v Superman worth checking out? Does it change the minds of anyone who didn’t like the theatrical cut? Find out after the jump. Read More »
Whether or not you liked Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice when it hit theaters earlier this year, there’s a good chance that you’re curious to see the 30 minutes of footage that’s being put back into what is being called the Ultimate Edition.

It’s not chock full of new footage like the previous trailer was, but there are glimpses of some new shots, as well as the special features that will take you behind the scenes.

Thunder crashes in the distance as lightning flashes on a gothic-looking rooftop. The iconic Bat Signal shoots a beam of light into the sky as Commissioner Gordon looks out over Gotham City. On the other side of the rooftop, Batman appears, flanked by Wonder Woman and the Flash.
“How many of you are there?” asks Gordon.
Batman dryly responds, “Not enough.”
I’m on the set of Justice League watching a scene be filmed for Zack Snyder’s follow-up to the divisive Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was supposed to get fans pumped about the rest of the DC Extended Universe film slate. Instead, got them worried. Warner Bros. is clearly aware of this, as evidenced by the steps they’ve taken to right the ship. But what about the other directors tasked with fleshing out this world? Are they concerned about the sour reception to Batman v Superman, and what it might mean for the rest of the franchise?
Aquaman director James Wan weighed in on the Batman v Superman backlash, and he seems to be taking it in stride. Though it sounds like he’s learned a thing or two from it — for one thing, he promises Aquaman “won’t be very dark.” Well, kind of.

Jeremy Irons‘ Alfred Pennyworth was one of the best parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a welcome font of warmth and humor in an otherwise pitch-dark movie. Nevertheless, he’s well aware of the drubbing that the film has received from critics, and he’s even inclined to agree that it “deserved” those terrible reviews. But don’t worry — he sounds more optimistic about Justice League, in which he’ll reprise his role as Batman’s loyal butler. And not just because the role gives him “a bit of an income,” as he puts it. Read More »
