With enemies like these, who needs friends, right? The final Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer shows Batman (Ben Affleck) basically preparing to go to war with Superman (Henry Cavill). And to be sure, Batman makes a pretty solid argument in favor of taking down the Man of Steel. “He has the power to wipe out the entire human race,” says Bruce. “If we believe there is even a 1% chance that he is our enemy, we have to take it as an absolute certainty.”
What we know that they don’t, however, is that this is just a prelude a long and beautiful friendship, or at least frenemy-ship. As the part after the colon in the title suggests, they’re eventually going to wind up on the same team against the real villains. But as the Batman v Superman final trailer shows, it’s gonna take a whole lot of action and fistfights and big shiny explosions to get there. Watch it after the jump. Read More »

Zack Snyder is basically the God of the DC Comic movies right now. With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he’s not only setting up the two titular characters for future films, but also Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and maybe more. What he did with these heroes in the upcoming superhero pic will, most likely, heavily influence what Warner Bros. does going forward.
What does former Batman director Christopher Nolan think about the new direction Snyder is taking Bruce Wayne in, though? Does he miss the character at all?

We’re about two months away from seeing several DC Comics superheroes converge on the big screen for the first time ever in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. If the most recent theatrical trailer didn’t show enough, the TV spot with Superman denting the Batmobile and footage from the DC Films TV special last week gave us plenty more teases of what to expect from this clash of comic titans. And now a couple more Batman v Superman TV spots show off just how tense things are between the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) and the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck). Watch! Read More »
Can you think of a more romantic spot for a first kiss than when you’re surrounded by hundreds, if not thousands, of dead bodies? Doesn’t exactly set the mood, does it? Lois Lane (Amy Adams) was into it, though, and she even cracked a joke (“It’s downhill after the first kiss”) amongst the chaos. It’s one of the tone deaf moments of Man of Steel‘s third act, which has been dividing fans ever since the film’s release. But to this day, director Zack Snyder stands by the destruction of Metropolis.
After the jump, Zack Snyder defends Man of Steel and discusses the repercussions its destruction will create in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice could be a very good movie, but you wouldn’t know if from much of the marketing. The trailers have been all over the place. Some of the clips have been baffling. And yet, I’ve been wondering if the issue here has been entirely about the advertising and not necessarily the movie itself. None of the actual footage looked bad taken on its own, but the way it was being presented to us felt half-baked.
The CW aired a big special about the burgeoning DC superhero movie universe last night (with the stilted title of DC Films Presents: The Dawn of the Justice League) and, naturally, new footage from director Zack Snyder‘s upcoming superhero showdown was unveiled. And while there is enough new footage included here to be worthy of your dissection, what’s really interesting is the footage we’ve already seen. When presented with flair and competence, stuff that looked rough before looks a helluva lot better.

Ever since the first teaser for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we’ve been treated to Ben Affleck‘s Batman kindly asking Henry Cavill‘s Superman if he bleeds. This bizarre exchange has been the subject of countless raised eyebrows and more than a few stifled in-theater chortles. You can say a great many things about the trailers for Zack Snyder‘s superhero epic, but everyone seems to be in agreement that this is one odd line of dialogue upon which to hang so much of your marketing.
Now, thanks to a newly released clip from the film, we get to see that line in context. Does it sound better when performed in a proper scene? Does Superman have a response to it? Does it feel any less creepy?

Some fans were apprehensive when Warner Bros. Pictures announced that Jesse Eisenberg was playing Superman’s arch nemesis Lex Luthor in this year’s blockbsuter comic book battle Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, as we’ve surmised from some viral marketing materials, this isn’t the Lex Luthor that fans are used to. Aside from the hair (which will eventually disappear), it’s clear that this character is pretty far removed from previous iterations in almost every way, save for his efforts to destroy Superman.
In a new interview with Eisenberg, the actor revealed that director Zack Snyder originally approached him for a completely different role. In addition, he talks about the bewilderment that comes with taking a role like this and the relief that this version of the character brought to him. Read More »
