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 »

When the latest trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was unleashed recently, many were blown away by the sight of Batman and Superman squaring off for the first time. But as we pointed out later, there are plenty of little things to notice that hint at what’s coming in the forthcoming big screen battle.
One of the more surprising reveals in the trailer was what seemed to be confirmation that Batman’s trusty sidekick Robin appears to be dead. The above shot from the trailer has a message, presumably from The Joker, written on Robin’s suit, which appears to be in a display case as a memorial to The Boy Wonder. But fans have been wondering if we’ll actually see Robin in action in some sort of flashback.
The answer appears to be yes, and a new rumor even tells us who might be wearing the suit in the flashback. Find out more about Robin in Batman v Superman after the jump, but beware of spoilers! Read More »
Just recently we featured a quick little edit of some footage from the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer where Bruce Wayne witnesses the final battle from the end of Man of Steel. But now the DC Comics superhero match-up gets a whole new face…literally.
YouTube user and TV writer David Elmaleh has created a mash-up of Batman v. Superman and The Social Network, which features the DC Comics cinematic universe’s new Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) in the lead role. The battle for Facebook between Mark Zuckerberg and The Winklevoss twins has never been so epic, and the David Fincher movie looks like a true battle for the ages.

IMAX is usually a super-sized cinematic format, but in this case it is actually shrinking something a bit. (And not for Ant-Man.)
It hasn’t even been a week since WB premiered the first full-length Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, but there has been more than enough time to examine that long batch of footage in detail. But if you want a different sort of detailed look at the footage, a slightly shorter, theatrical IMAX edit of the Batman v Superman trailer will be in theaters this weekend — or, if you don’t care about seeing it on a huge screen, you can check it out below.

Even though we’ll just be seeing The Dark Knight taking on The Man of Steel on the big screen for the first time in March of 2016, there’s a long history of rivalry between Batman and Superman that goes back decades.
