New York Comic-Con is in full swing today, so there are bound to be some big updates coming from the convention this weekend. Some viral marketing in conjunction with NYCC has already kicked off with a Fortune profile on the vegan hipster billionaire Lex Luthor Jr. (played by Jesse Eisenberg) from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and now another interesting tie-in has popped up online.
LexCorp has debuted a new video advertising the forthcoming release of Lex/OS, the world’s most secure and private operating system. This was teased in the aforementioned Fortune interview, and it’ll be interesting to see what comes out of this Batman v Superman viral marketing campaign. Watch the Batman v Superman viral video after the jump. Read More »

Ever since Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) was cast in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans haven’t been quite sure what to make of the actor playing Lex Luthor. It’s a completely out-of-the-box choice, which, to me, is exciting. The glimpses of his performance in the Comic-Con trailer teased an eccentric take on the character, but a new piece of Batman v Superman viral marketing gives us a better idea of what to expect from the new Lex Luthor. Learn about Superman’s adversary after the jump.

Before Ben Affleck was officially locked down to direct, co-write and star in his own solo Batman movie at Warner Bros., the story started as a rumor following a test screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice attended by the film’s crew and studio executives.
While the reaction to the screening was reportedly overwhelmingly positive, a new rumor says Warner Bros. now wants to make some changes. Supposedly the studio thinks that Batman v Superman needs more of Ben Affleck as Batman in the movie and less of Henry Cavill as Superman. Why? Well, the reasoning is that Affleck is blowing Cavill off the screen, so they think more of The Dark Knight will only help the movie. Details on Batman v Superman adding more Batman to the flick below! Read More »
Next spring, before Steve Rogers and Tony Stark square off in Captain America: Civil War, the big screen will see a comic book match-up that is unprecedented in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But two heroes at odds is nothing new, and a modern classic tale that pitted two now-iconic heroes against each other has been given a DC Comics twist.
It’s no secret that Woody and Buzz Lightyear weren’t the best of friends when Toy Story premiered in 1995, and now they’re given The Dark Knight and Man of Steel confrontation treatment in this cleverly edited Toy Story Batman v Superman mash-up. Watch below! Read More »
As of now, following his role as The Dark Knight in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, we already know that Ben Affleck is going to stick around as Batman for another solo movie that he will also write and direct. However, it sounds like Warner Bros. wants to stay in the Batfleck business for a little longer.
A new rumor has surfaced saying that a screening of Batman v. Superman just took place for the film’s crew and Warner Bros. executive, and Zack Snyder‘s working cut of the movie got a standing ovation from those in attendance. That’s not hard to achieve in a room of people that worked on a movie, but reportedly Ben Affleck does such a good job in this movie that the studio wants him for an entire Batman trilogy instead of just one more more.

When the new trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice debuted in Hall H at Comic-Con in San Diego, you could feel the excitement from fans. But how does the trailer play to more general audiences? Or more specifically, how does it play to the elderly?
That’s what Fine Brothers Entertainment, the folks behind those adorable Kids React videos (we recently featured some youngsters learning that Transformers existed before 2007), found out when they sat down some lovely old people to watch the most recent trailer for the DC Comics match-up for the first time. Their reactions might be more adorable than the kids.

Last fall, a rumor surfaced that Robin would be appearing in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and in a way unlike any version of the Dark Knight’s sidekick we’ve seen on screen before. This incarnation of the character was rumored to be female. And there were even rumblings that Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch star Jena Malone was playing the character.
However, we’ve since seen that Robin is likely dead in Batman v. Superman, seemingly killed by The Joker in a quick shot glimpsed in the most recent trailer that debuted at Comic-Con. The suit the sidekick wore doesn’t look to belong to a female with the physique of Jena Malone, and is likely a young man played by the director’s son Eli Snyder.
So if Jena Malone isn’t playing Robin, then just who is her character? We may finally have an answer. Find out more about Jena Malone in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice after the jump, but beware of potential spoilers! Read More »
Now that Comic Con has come and gone, and nearly every big superhero movie for the 2015 season has been released, Warner Bros. is getting a bit more free with images and stories from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The March 2016 release was previewed in a big trailer, and we just saw one set of new photos online yesterday.
Now we’ve got a new batch of Batman v Superman photos, featuring a bunch of the major cast members. The best images, however, are a pair of behind the scenes shots that feature Ben Affleck in the Batsuit.
Update: We’ve now got high-resolution versions of this batch of images.

Yesterday at the Television Critics Association Summer Press tour, Netflix presented a panel on Longmire, the series they rescued from A&E for a new season on the streaming service. After the panel I approached actor Bailey Chase for a further interview, and he gave me an exclusive story about his work on Batman v Superman.
More interesting, his comments shed a bit of light on one shot from the film that we’ve wondered about: the image of people on horseback seen in the Comic Con trailer. Read More »
