One of the chief complaints about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been a convoluted, unnecessarily complex story. But from my perspective, one of the more enjoyable and promising elements of the film were the seeds planted for the movies that will feature the rest of the heroes who will form Justice League. Even though the little teases of heroes like Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg aren’t pulled off as smoothly as the movie-stealing appearance of Wonder Woman, they certainly piqued my curiosity.
Now a new interview with producer Deborah Snyder gives a hint as to what we can expect from a standalone The Flash movie, and it involves teaming up with Cyborg, who had one of the more confusing Justice League appearances in Batman v Superman. Find out what Deborah Snyder had to say about The Flash movie after the jump. Read More »

Last night, The CW aired the awkwardly titled DC Films Presents: The Dawn of the Justice League, which existed for one reason and one reason only: to get you and everyone else excited about Warner Bros.’ new superhero universe.
And did it work? Well, we got that wild and lively Suicide Squad trailer, our first glimpse at footage from the still-filming Wonder Woman, and a whole bunch of co-host Kevin Smith mugging for the camera, so you be the judge. Overall, we’d say whole presentation left a positive taste in the mouth, which is more than we can say for most of the recent Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailers.
The special also teased superheroes who will be introduced further down the line, offering a fresh glimpse at Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash via some new new Justice League concept art.

In an effort to help hype tonight’s TV special DC Films Presents: The Dawn of the Justice League on The CW, Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled a piece of Justice League concept art featuring the whole team standing together. And that means we get our first look at what Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller may look like as Cyborg and The Flash, respectively. But where is Green Lantern?

Besides the fans, the biggest winners of the recent DC Warner Bros. announcement were Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher. With a simple press release, each went from up and coming actor to movie star with their own franchise. Momoa, who’ll play Aquaman, is obviously thrilled. We have yet to hear from Miller, who plays The Flash. Now Cyborg’s alter-ego, Ray Fisher, has spoken out.
The actor, best known for his work on Broadway, told Entertainment Weekly he had no idea DC was planning a Cyborg solo movie when he first signed onto play the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In fact, producers didn’t tell him of the plan until hours before the official announcement was made. He also confirmed he’s long since finished shooting his part in Snyder’s film and met several other members of the Justice League. That could give a hint as to what the role actually is in the film.

In the year 2115, two robot scientists will compare 1989 and 2009 using the original version of Teen Witch and United Artists‘ Teen Witch remake starring the girl/”global brand” above, Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical, bright backgrounds). Cue robotic eye rolling. I checked on IMDB and thankfully, the cornerstone of the cheeky original, Zelda Rubenstein (right) is still alive, so UA better call her up for a tween-appealing cameo or face a spell not worthy of Carol Anne.
This might not be totally accurate, but I believe the original movie ranks on 20somethin’ girls’ endearing nostalgia-meter right around where American Ninja or Cyborg ranks with dudes of the same age. So it’s not exactly a female Fletch, but Tisdale has her bedazzled work cut out for her. Can she top the original’s rather amazing signature musical number entitled “Top That!”? That is a rhetorical question, but we’ve included the link to “Top That!” for your enjoyment. Yes, it’s friggin’ worth it.
