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?

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 »

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.

There has been a variety of cool news for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lately. A trio of new character posters just debuted, finally giving Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman her own poster, and there’s a chance that the film might end up getting a 70mm release thanks to Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.
And for Christmas Eve, we get a small gift from overseas with a new international Batman v Superman TV spot, and The Dark Knight isn’t afraid of taunting The Man of Steel at all. Read More »

In news that should come as no surprise the millions of people who went out of their way to avoid Mortdecai and Transcendence, Forbes has compiled its annual list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood and Johnny Depp is sitting not-so-pretty at number one. And when you look at the raw numbers, no one else is even close.
However, there’s a little more going on here than a great excuse to kick Johnny Depp and his collection of dumb hats while they’re down. The disparity between what “movie stars” are paid and what their movies end up grossing at the box office is shifting. The age of the movie star is effectively over and you can see this reflected in the full list below.

The next few months are going to be vital for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The subject matter of the movie alone makes it clear that a lot of people are going to see this thing no matter what – this is the first time we’ve seen a film like this in any capacity. However, the latest trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel, the one we picked apart frame by frame, the one that is being shown to record-breaking audiences around the world before Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is genuinely lousy. That doesn’t mean the movie is bad, or even that the raw footage in the preview isn’t good, but it’s a disastrous piece of marketing that seems to go out of its way to make the movie look as unappealing as possible.
The newest international TV spot for the film isn’t that bad. It’s certainly better edited and it’s a little more focused on the main even of the movie, Batman and Superman dishing out pain and punches and grimaces, than the meandering main trailer. Most importantly, it contains just enough new shots and moments to be worthy of your time and feverish analysis.
Watch the new Batman v Superman footage after the jump.

Since the movie is called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s understandable that most of the marketing has been centered around seeing these two superhero icons go head-to-head on the big screen for the first time. However, Wonder Woman stole the show in the latest trailer for the spring blockbuster, so it’s time she found her way to the spotlight.
Gal Gadot finally gets her own Wonder Woman poster along with two new posters featuring the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. However, they’re a little tainted by the big giant logos that are slapped on top of them. Read More »

Did you think Warner Bros. was going to cast Will Smith as a major character in their burgeoning DC superhero movie universe and then only put him in one movie? Even if Suicide Squad doesn’t light fandom on fire (which seems unlikely at this point), we’ll probably see a great deal of Smith’s Deadshot in the years ahead. After all, the DC universe’s greatest marksman is a strong utility player – you can slide him into just about any story, starring any superhero, and he’ll function as a worthwhile adversary and/or reluctant ally.
So perhaps it isn’t too surprising that new rumors suggest that Smith’s Deadshot will share the screen with Ben Affleck‘s Batman in the latter’s first solo film, which is due out in sometime in 2018. Or 2019. No one seems to know. In any case, Warner Bros. may have realized that Affleck and Smith sharing the screen was too huge of an opportunity to pass up and took the appropriate steps.
