“We’re on track to deliver a slate of films that will delight audiences everywhere thanks to the efforts of the many exceptionally talented people invested in the success of this universe.”

That’s Greg Silverman, President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production at Warner Bros., talking about the studio’s upcoming slate of DC movies. It’s not only the obvious studio sentiment, it’s what fans all over the world want to believe. They hope one of the biggest, most powerful movie studios, controlling some of the most beloved characters, is going to treat them right in a way we can all treasure.

While that statement very well might end up being true when the films hit the theaters, at the moment, it’s a bit more difficult to believe. The Hollywood Reporter has a fascinating and scathing report on the construction of the DC Cinematic Universe. It cites numerous examples that no one knows exactly how this is all going to come together. One example? Five writers were hired to write competing versions of Wonder Woman. Three writers were hired to do that for Aquaman, and more. Read more about the upcoming DC movies below. Read More »

VOTD: What If ‘Man of Steel’ Was in Color?

Man of Steel in Color

Seems like everyone has a strong opinion about Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, and technology allows some to express them more vividly than others. The film’s color palette, seemingly crafted to make the film sit alongside Christopher Nolan’s Batman films while also creating a more “modern” Superman, doesn’t sit well with some fans who want a sunnier man of steel. One group has gone so far as to re-color the movie with a bright color palette more in keeping with Richard Donner’s 1978 film. Check out the video essay that presents Man of Steel in color.

Batman v Superman costumes

Last week was a weird one for Zack Snyder and his film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film’s first trailer was briefly teased on Instagram, then released online in low-quality bootleg form, forcing Warner Bros. to officially release the trailer days in advance of its planned theatrical IMAX debut. (That’s still happening tonight.) But that’s all out there now, so we’ll just move forward. Now you can get a look at the primary Batman v Superman costumes thanks to a video featuring NBA star DeAndre Jordan checking out a Warner Bros. exhibit of the suits and new Batmobile.

UPDATE: B-Roll footage has now been put online with a much more detailed look at the costumes. Read More »

Batman v Superman trailer

Here’s the first full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it sees the world of DC’s comic book heroes reeling from the aftereffects of Man of Steel.

As humanity struggles to come to terms with the presence of the godlike Superman (Henry Cavill) we hear a clamor of voices discussing the post-Superman world. Some sound like real-world quotes — are Charlie Rose and Neil deGrasse Tyson heard early on?  — while others, such as Jesse Eisenberg‘s Lex Luthor, are definitely unique residents of the DC Movie Universe.

And then there’s Jeremy Irons as Alfred, who is heard in voiceover after the rumbling dies down, and Ben Affleck, whose Batman looks incredibly huge even without armor. The confrontation promised by the movie’s title is teased with a question phrased as both a command, and a threat: “Tell me… do you bleed?”
