After last year’s epic Batman v Superman announcement, everyone expects Warner Bros. to give fans tons of big news at Comic-Con this year. We’d already heard pretty definitively that the next bit film, Justice League directed by Zack Snyder, would hit in 2017. Given the casting of characters such as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, WB and DC seem to be readying other major superheroes for spin offs. Now, a rumored schedule has been released that shows the potential Warner Bros. and DC schedule through 2018. Not on the list? Batman. What is on the list? Shazam, Wonder Woman and a Flash/Green Lantern team up. See the Warner Bros DC schedule below. Read More »

Fans everywhere analyzed the photo like it was evidence in a murder trial, dissecting the costume’s texture, the size of specific elements, Affleck’s muscular structure, and more. Snyder specifically released the photo in black and white, leaving the color of the suit up for debate. Photoshoppers everywhere took the hint and colored-in the image giving fans a bunch of options of what the suit might really look like.
Some might remember, long before the world saw the suit, director, Batman fan and friend of Affleck Kevin Smith admitted he’d seen it. “You have not seen this costume in a movie, on film before,” Smith said at the time, “For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending.” Well, the photo Snyder released kind of looks like other suits, so Smith clarified his original statement.

By now you’ve probably read a bit about plans for May 6, 2016. Marvel Studios first claimed the release date for an unspecified film, only to be challenged when Warner Bros. moved Batman vs. Superman to the same date. Kevin Feige said Marvel wouldn’t budge and officially named Captain America 3 as the film opening that day. The head of Warner Bros. then stood firm on the date and the company placed another movie in the classic DC late-July slot.
But no one in a million years thinks both Captain America 3 and Batman vs. Superman will open on the same date. Now, the chairman of Disney Studios said the company is “struggling” with the Captain America 3 release date. Read More »
Directing a massive superhero film has lots of privileges. Money? Sure. Fame? Of course. But also the ability to geek out and see things before anyone else in the world. In a new interview, Zack Snyder – the director of Man of Steel and 2016′s Batman vs. Superman – admits he doesn’t know when fans will get to see the new Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman costumes. But he has a huge of them photo up in his office, geeks out over it daily, and really wants to upload it. He just knows he can’t.
He also talks about the first moment Batman was mentioned as a possible foil for Superman in the sequel, what it will be like when they finally show down, the “rivalry” with Marvel Studios and, oddly, Slashfilm. Read the quotes below. Read More »

It’s a strange spot to be in for a composer. Yet it seems that whatever reservations the composer had are now slipping away, as he says in a recent interview that he’s going to work on ideas for Batman vs. Superman. Read More »
