For the better part of 2014, Zack Snyder has been filming arguably the biggest superhero movie ever made: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The sequel to Man of Steel is not only the first time two of the biggest superheroes ever will appear together on screen, the film is the set up for a DC Comics universe that extends through at least the year 2020.
If rumors of the film’s plot didn’t make it sound massive enough, the fact it’s been in production since April, with innumerable different sets, locations and photos revealed, only bolster the point. This is going to be an epic film when it finally hits theaters March 25, 2016.
Well that epic film is now in the can. Production on Batman v Superman has wrapped. Read more about the Batman v Superman filming below. Read More »

Before this Summer’s Man of Steel, Zack Snyder‘s most successful film was 300 from 2007. The visually stunning take on Frank Miller’s graphic novel grossed over $200 million domestic. The film was so influential in fact, not only is there a sequel coming out next year, but numerous others films continue to duplicate its aesthetic. Much of that was due to the work of cinematographer Larry Fong, who went on to work with Snyder on Watchmen, Sucker Punch and then with J.J. Abrams on Super 8.
Fong didn’t work with Snyder on Man of Steel (that honor went to Amir Mokri) but it seems the pair could team up again. A since-deleted update on Fong’s website listed the DP’s next project as Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman, starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck. Read More »
