Ben Affleck in Hollywoodland

This weekend, Ben Affleck makes his debut as the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But as fans of the actor already know, he’s played Superman once before, too, sort of: in the 2006 drama Hollywoodland, he plays actor George Reeves, who portrayed the Man of Steel in the 1950s TV series Adventures of Superman.

Naturally, then it was only a matter of time the internet thought to mash up the two performances and pit Affleck’s Batman against Affleck’s own Superman. Watch the Batman v Superman trailer parody Affleck v Affleck after the jump.  Read More »

Batman v Superman Clips

We’re less than a week away from seeing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice debut on the big screen, giving DC Comics fans the cinematic match-up they’ve been dreaming about for years. So far the trailers and TV spots have fans divided on their excitement for the battle, mostly due to their enjoyment or distaste for director Zack Snyder, but the box office tracking indicates this is undoubtedly going to be a huge movie.

If you’re desperate for as much footage from the movie as possible, you can check out five Batman v Superman clips. They’re basically extended bits of footage of snippets that we’ve seen in the trailers. We get a bit more of the battle of words between Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), but characters like Alfred (Jeremy Irons), Lex Luthor (Jesse Eiesenberg) Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne) get some more screentime as well. Plus, one clip shows us a saucy exchange between Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince (Gal Gadot).

batman v superman - dc movie universe

One of the more interesting topics of conversation at the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice press conference revolved around the creation of the DC movie universe. Director Zack Snyder revealed that the idea of one cinematic universe was not influenced by Marvel (sure…) but instead was the result of the story he wanted to tell in his Man of Steel sequel. The universe came from that idea, and evolved into a much much bigger plan.

Batman v Superman Footage

It’s a shame the buzz hasn’t picked up much for Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeBad timing hurt the first teaser, which was released the week we saw the immensely satisfying Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser. The footage revealed at Comic Con was an improvement, but the third trailer was a tonal mess. The reveal of Doomsday didn’t help matters. The fourth trailer we recently saw raised expectations for some.

By this point, we’ve seen quite a bit of footage from Zack Snyder‘s superhero showdown, so, of course, someone cut it all together. Watch the video below.

Batman v Superman Trailer

With enemies like these, who needs friends, right? The final Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer shows Batman (Ben Affleck) basically preparing to go to war with Superman (Henry Cavill). And to be sure, Batman makes a pretty solid argument in favor of taking down the Man of Steel. “He has the power to wipe out the entire human race,” says Bruce. “If we believe there is even a 1% chance that he is our enemy, we have to take it as an absolute certainty.”

What we know that they don’t, however, is that this is just a prelude a long and beautiful friendship, or at least frenemy-ship. As the part after the colon in the title suggests, they’re eventually going to wind up on the same team against the real villains. But as the Batman v Superman final trailer shows, it’s gonna take a whole lot of action and fistfights and big shiny explosions to get there. Watch it after the jump.  Read More »
