Ever since the first teaser for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we’ve been treated to Ben Affleck‘s Batman kindly asking Henry Cavill‘s Superman if he bleeds. This bizarre exchange has been the subject of countless raised eyebrows and more than a few stifled in-theater chortles. You can say a great many things about the trailers for Zack Snyder‘s superhero epic, but everyone seems to be in agreement that this is one odd line of dialogue upon which to hang so much of your marketing.
Now, thanks to a newly released clip from the film, we get to see that line in context. Does it sound better when performed in a proper scene? Does Superman have a response to it? Does it feel any less creepy?

Now that 2015 is over, we’re in a bit of a dead zone for movies with a lot of junk being dumped in January. Usually this period of disappointing options on the big screen lasts through February and into March, but for me, next month brings three of my 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2016. But what about the rest of the year? Find out what other movies I’m looking forward to with the full list after the jump! Read More »
All right, folks, it’s time to put on your rumor hats, because the internet has a fresh one regarding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With the movie just a couple months away from release, we’re probably going to start hearing more and more about this big launch into the larger DC Comics cinematic universe, and this new rumor is something that will take us straight into Justice League. Get the details on this other Batman v Superman villain after the jump, but beware of potential spoilers! Read More »
Some fans were apprehensive when Warner Bros. Pictures announced that Jesse Eisenberg was playing Superman’s arch nemesis Lex Luthor in this year’s blockbsuter comic book battle Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, as we’ve surmised from some viral marketing materials, this isn’t the Lex Luthor that fans are used to. Aside from the hair (which will eventually disappear), it’s clear that this character is pretty far removed from previous iterations in almost every way, save for his efforts to destroy Superman.
In a new interview with Eisenberg, the actor revealed that director Zack Snyder originally approached him for a completely different role. In addition, he talks about the bewilderment that comes with taking a role like this and the relief that this version of the character brought to him. Read More »
Even though the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is just over a couple months away, it doesn’t feel like it. Sure, the excitement is high, but it’s just strange for a movie of that scale to come out in March. But since we’re so close to the release, it’s time for the onslaught of TV spots to begin. Director Zack Snyder just shared a new tease of the movie and it features a taunt from The Dark Knight that fans will love to hear, especially after Superman damages his ride. Watch! Read More »

Based on the reaction to last month’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, fans aren’t quite sure what to make of Jesse Eisenberg‘s take on Lex Luthor. The character looks bubbly, smarmy, and conniving, and a little different from the Luthor fans know. But I’m all for trying something new with a comic book character, especially one we’ve seen as much as this villain, so I’m looking forward to seeing what director Zack Snyder and the actor have done with Superman’s adversary.
In October, Fortune ran a “profile piece” on the mad genius, and now Wired (via ComicBookMovie) has run a Lex Luthor interview as well. Get to know a little bit more about the businessman after the jump.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has already moved once to avoid a head-to-head battle with a Marvel Studios property, but now they might find themselves facing off against a different Marvel Studios property. A new report claims the second season of Daredevil will land on Netflix the exact same day Batman v Superman hits theaters, forcing geeks to pick a side in the great Marvel vs. DC war, once and for all. (Or, you know, to slightly adjust their weekend schedules to make room for both.) Read More »

Although we’ve seen plenty (maybe even too much) from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the next films on Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe roster remain a bit more mysterious. Suicide Squad stole the show at Comic-Con this summer with an excellent first trailer, but hasn’t revealed any new footage since, and we’ve yet to see any footage at all from Wonder Woman, which just began shooting last month.
That won’t change today, but at least we finally know when it will. A new Suicide Squad trailer is reportedly coming to The CW next month, along with the very first sneak peek at Wonder Woman. Get more details after the jump. Read More »

One of the most promising aspects of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is how different Ben Affleck‘s take on the Caped Crusader appears to be. This isn’t Michael Keaton’s neurotic weirdo or Christian Bale’s angry young man – this is a tired, middle-aged vigilante whose fear and rage has boiled over into general world-weariness. Whether the film is ultimately good or not (and no number of lousy trailers can fully diminish every speck of hope), at least this Batman will stand apart from the others.
The difference between Batfleck and his predecessors can be seen in the film’s new take on the Dark Knight’s base of operations, the Batcave. Glimpsed in several of the trailers, this version of Batman’s laboratory/armory/garage/museum certainly looks like a refreshing take on the most famous secret lair this side of the Fortress of Solitude and two new photos are here to drive that point home.
