Superman black suit

At this point, it’s safe to say Justice League is a misfire. Critics didn’t care for it, it underperformed at the box office to the point that it’s caused a shake-up behind the scenes at Warner Bros., and all anyone wanted to talk about was Henry Cavill‘s weird CGI face hiding his mustache. As rumors abound about deleted scenes, cinematographer Fabian Wagner confirms that the film originally featured Superman black suit scenes, recalling the outfit used for Superman’s resurrection in the comic books following The Death of Superman arc. At some point, this idea got scrapped. Sorry, everyone. More details about the Superman black suit in Justice League are below.  Read More »

‘Justice League’ Finally Gets Superman Right

Superman in Justice League

After two movies that misunderstood what makes the Man of Steel tick, Justice League finds fun new ways to let Superman be Superman again. All it took was a brutal death and a sudden resurrection.

Spoilers for Justice League follow.

man of steel aquaman

The world (or ocean) of the DC Extended Universe may be a lot smaller than we anticipated. The shared cinematic universe was born fairly recently, launched from Zack Snyder‘s 2013 Superman origin movie, Man of Steel. But it turns out Snyder was laying the ground for Justice League and beyond, with a secret (so secret you don’t even see it!) cameo from none other than Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Frank Miller Superman comic

Comic book writer and artist Frank Miller believes he’s never had a “meaningful crack at Superman.” He’s now taking his shot with a new Superman project. The author of The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City, and Batman: Year One is revolving his Superman story around the Man of Steel’s younger years. “It’s telling his beginnings from when Pa Kent discovered him in the cornfield, and the little boy goes to youth, and then to manhood,” Miller said. According to artist John Romita Jr., who worked with Miller on “Daredevil: The Man Without Fear,” Superman: Year One isn’t exactly a retelling of that familiar tale.

Below, Romita Jr. discusses the Frank Miller Superman comic.

Man of Steel 2 director

Man of Steel was the first movie to kick off the DC Expanded Universe that would eventually include a new version of Batman, as well as the first big-screen iterations of Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg, all coming together to form the Justice League. The assembly of the DC Comics superhero team and the individual movies for each of the superheroes on the team has kept Warner Bros. Pictures kind of busy, but now they may be ready to bring their attention back to The Big Blue Boy Scout.

A new report indicates that Kingsman: The Secret Service and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn is the studio’s top choice to direct Man of Steel 2 and they’ve already had “preliminary conversations” about working together on the sequel. Find out more below. Read More »

Man of Steel sequel

Update: Henry Cavill‘s manager Dany Garcia has confirmed that another Superman standalone movie is a top priority right now:

“Henry has a big appetite,” she told Newsweek about Cavill’s Hollywood ambitions. “We’ve been in a five-month period of time where he’s re-strategizing, acquiring property , he’s filming [‘Justice League‘] now, he’s in development for the Superman standalone… he’s beginning to expand that world. It’s beautifully teed up. In a year from now, or two years from now, he’s going to be a force globally.”

I wonder how the Superman world will be expanded.
