Every time a costume is revealed for a new superhero movie, the internet goes into overdrive to analyze it, nitpick it, and discern the purpose and meaning of every design choice. It happened when Justice League director Zack Snyder revealed Batman’s newest suit last week and it’ll continue to happen until the comic book movie craze comes to an end (which may coincide with the sun burning itself out).
Of course, every final costume design is the result of dozens of other options being thrown the wayside. Countless sketches are whittled down to stack of fully rendered paintings. The best of that stack may get a quick 3D dimension sculpt. Ideas are blended and merged. No final design is reached easily. And that’s why alternate designs are so fascinating – we can see what could have been, what was ultimately rejected in favor of what we got. Currently on the table: alternate takes on Cyborg and The Flash that are quite different from how they actually turned out Justice League.

The upcoming Justice League sees Ezra Miller‘s The Flash teaming up with a whole bunch of other DC superheroes. And it looks like at least one of his new pals will be staying by his side for a while. A new report indicates Cyborg a.k.a. Victor Stone, played by Ray Fisher, will make an appearance in Rick Famuyiwa‘s The Flash solo movie due out in 2018. Both characters made their DC cinematic universe debuts in this spring’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and will fight together in next year’s Justice League. Read More »
When Warner Bros announced their Hall H line-up for San Diego Comic Con International 2016, Justice League was mysteriously absent.

Thunder crashes in the distance as lightning flashes on a gothic-looking rooftop. The iconic Bat Signal shoots a beam of light into the sky as Commissioner Gordon looks out over Gotham City. On the other side of the rooftop, Batman appears, flanked by Wonder Woman and the Flash.
“How many of you are there?” asks Gordon.
Batman dryly responds, “Not enough.”
I’m on the set of Justice League watching a scene be filmed for Zack Snyder’s follow-up to the divisive Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

It’s been a couple of years since we heard about Ang Lee‘s 3D boxing drama that was said to focus on the boxing world in the 1960s and 1970s, when heavyweights like Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier ruled the ring and grabbed people’s attention. The project was set up at Universal, but ended up taking a backseat so Lee could direct Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk instead.
Now the project has life again, this time at Jeff Robinov’s Studio 8, and Lee is already scouting locations for the project. He also has an eye on two stars to play Frazier and Ali. Find out who they are after the jump. Read More »
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.

The potential Justice League roster just expanded by one in Zack Snyder‘s new vision of the DC Universe. Theater actor Ray Fisher (not the football player) has been cast as Cyborg in Batman vs. Superman.
