Comic-Con is nearly upon us, and you can bet Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment are going to bring out the big guns when they show off Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in San Diego. Before that, the studio has released some new photos from the movie to hold fans over until the good stuff arrives next week.

The new photos from the first big-screen battle between The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel show us plenty of new stuff, including Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, but with a healthy mane of hair; a shot of Batman in his steel suit with the bat signal; Superman (Henry Cavill) being worshiped by a crowd; and a couple shots of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, one of which also has Gal Gadot as Diana Prince.

Ben Affleck directing Batman

With the San Diego Comic-Con just a couple weeks away, we’re likely going to get an onslaught of new information and sneak peeks at whatever Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have in store for the DC Comics cinematic universe.

The new comic book sandbox won’t kick into full gear until Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives, and then we’ve got a whole slew of DC heroes headed towards the big screen over the next few years. We’ve already got a full slate of films lined up through 2019, but it sounds like some of those plans might be expanding if a new rumor is to be believed.

Reportedly, Warner Bros. has Ben Affleck lined up to direct his own solo Batman movie for release in the fall of 2018. Find out more about Ben Affleck directing Batman after the jump. Read More »

Kevin Smith comic book movie

In a world full of comic book adaptations, one would think that a massive comic book fan and filmmaker like Kevin Smith might get the chance to bring one of the character’s from ink to screen. However, Smith’s writing and directing style hasn’t exactly shown the potential for tentpole material (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing). Sure, Smith has written comic books, but that’s much different than creating a feature film around them.

However, Smith was recently asked about the potential of him ever directing a comic book project. And while he dismisses the thought of that ever coming to fruition, he did offer up an intriguing character that he would like to bring to life. Find out the character who would be at the center of this hypothetical Kevin Smith comic book movie after the jump. Read More »

Justice League by Alex Ross (header size)

Fanboys who read movie websites aren’t the only ones who realize Marvel is beating DC at the movie theater. A 7th grader was tasked with writing a company for a school project and he chose DC Comics. He wrote that he’s a huge fan of DC’s properties but asks “How does DC plan to compete against Marvel movies when Marvel seemingly dominates the live action superhero movie industry?” Good question, kid!

Here’s the best part. Not only did DC respond, but the company answered his question by discussing distributors and claiming “our movies by far exceed all of Marvel’s in sales.” Read More »
