superman in justice league

Warner Bros. dropped an extended first look at Justice League during last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but it wasn’t until this past weekend that we saw the first official trailer for the film. We already have an extensive breakdown of the new footage, but one thing you won’t see in the trailer is any sign of Henry Cavill’s Superman. But have no fear, Super-fans: director Zack Snyder is strongly hinting that we’ll see the Man of Steel on screen again very soon. Read More »

Justice League - The Flash

Over the weekend, the first official Justice League trailer debuted online, bringing us the first footage from the movie since a sizzle reel was released at Comic-Con last summer. Even fans who haven’t been impressed by Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad were interested in seeing what Zack Snyder could do with a whole roster of DC Comics superheroes at his disposal.

After watching the Justice League trailer countless times, we have a more in-depth breakdown of the new trailer, taking a closer look at just what the hell is going on in this first union of Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). But sadly, there’s no Henry Cavill as Superman yet.

Justice League Trailer

Following a barrage of new posters and trailer teasers, the new Justice League trailer is finally here.

Zack Snyder is back as director to bring DC Comics’ biggest superheroes together as a team for the first time on the big screen. Though Superman (Henry Cavill) is still in the ground, we know at some point he’ll be back to join the rest of the superhero squad. In the meantime, Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) are left to face threats to the world themselves, and according to Bruce Wayne’s Knightmare vision from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, eventually that will include Superman himself.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Watch the new Justice League trailer after the jump. Read More »

Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL

After Hans Zimmer completed his work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he shared the news that he was no longer scoring comic book movies. “[Batman v Superman] was very hard for me to do, to try to find new language,” he told BBC Hardtalk. “I did Batman Begins with Chris [Nolan] 12 years ago, so The Dark Knight trilogy might be three movies to you; to me, it was 11 years of my life.” A part of the reason why he might’ve struggled to find a new language is because, during those 11 years, he was inspired by what Christian Bale brought to Batman.

Below, learn more about why we won’t have the pleasure of experiencing more Hans Zimmer Batman scores.

Aquaman in Justice League

The first Justice League trailer showed Aquaman strutting around on land, tussling with Batman and trying his best to stay hydrated. But he really belongs to the sea, and now we’ve got our first halfway decent look at the underwater kingdom he calls home. Director Zack Snyder has shared a brief snippet of footage showing Jason Momoa swimming around underwater, offering a much better idea of what he’ll look like in action.

James Cameron Sci-Fi Documentary Series

James Cameron might be one of the most famous and well-regarded filmmakers working today, but he still takes inspiration from his peers and even from those who’ve followed him. During a recent interview, Cameron rattled off the names of some contemporaries that inspired him — including Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder and Deadpool director Tim MillerRead More »

Batman v Superman Visual Effects

Even though Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice didn’t come away with an Academy Award nomination for Best Visual Effects, it must be said that there is still some outstanding post-production work done on the comic book movie. No matter how you feel about the movie itself, you can’t deny that there are some incredible visual effects seen on screen.

Director Zack Snyder wanted to make sure everyone knew just how much hard work went into creating Batman v Superman, so he put together a VFX reel that’s nearly 12 minutes long, showing everything from digital destruction to animation tests for Doomsday to shots that were created entirely with computer generated imagery.

Batman v Superman Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck

I like Zack Snyder. That needs to be said first. His Dawn of the Dead remake is a superbly constructed, savvy joy. 300 is so much more interesting and beautiful than you remember. Watchmen is flawed but audacious, tackling un-adabtable source material with raw nerve and bravery. Sucker Punch is a disaster, but it’s the kind of well-intentioned disaster I can completely get behind. Man of Steel is one of the most handsome blockbusters ever made and the stuff that infuriates me also fascinates me.

It brought me no joy when it turned out Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was total rubbish and one of the most disappointing movies I’ve ever seen in a movie theater. I want him to succeed! And I also want him to move on and leave DC superheroes behind, because it’s increasingly clear that he doesn’t gel with them. However, some fans disagree as they have launched a petition calling for Snyder to helm The Batman now that Ben Affleck has vacated the director’s chair.
