Since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just recently unveiled the Ultimate Edition on Blu-Ray and DVD, the DC Comics movie has been talked about all over again. While the Ultimate Edition has been said to improve upon the theatrical cut of the film, it still undoubtedly has its problems, and a new video essay attempts to explain what the fundamental flaw is in Zack Snyder‘s comic book sequel, and it makes quite a valid point.

On Saturday, Warner Bros. revealed the first footage from the upcoming Justice League to a packed audience at Comic-Con. And then it arrived online. It would be unfair to call this a trailer – it’s obviously been put together from a movie that isn’t close to being finished, focusing on simple dialogue scenes instead of the VFX shots and action beats you’d expect from this sort of thing.
And yet, it still looks promising! There’s an attitude on display here that simply wasn’t present in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which certainly lends credence to all of that buzz about director Zack Snyder attempting a serious course correction for the DC movie universe.
So how about we go through this thing frame by frame? I’m sure we’ll find something to talk about.

When Warner Bros announced their Hall H line-up for San Diego Comic Con International 2016, Justice League was mysteriously absent. So its not shocking that Zack Snyder brought his still-in-production film to San Diego — its more like an expected surprise. They revealed a new piece of Justice League concept art, giving you a better look at the Aquaman and Flash costumes. We also got a sizzle reel, which you can watch below.

The first 10 minutes of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (and the Ultimate Edition) is a flashback where Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) rushes into Metropolis to help save as many people as he can. The sequence takes us back to the climax of Man of Steel where the world engine is dispatched with, but Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod (Michael Shannon) have it out one last time, destroying much of the city in the process. However, Batman v Superman only gives us Bruce Wayne’s perspective while Man of Steel focuses on Superman. But one fan has fixed that.
A new video put together by a fan takes footage from both the Batman v Superman opening scene and the Man of Steel climax and combines them into a singular scene where we get the perspective of both of our heroes during this destructive action sequence.

Last week I watched Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition. I’m sure you’ve read about this — it’s Zack Snyder’s three-hour director’s cut of the film. The Ultimate Edition has had quite a few positive reviews as opposed to the half-hour shorter theatrical cut which was eviscerated by critics and moviegoers. The Ultimate Edition is a better film than the theatrical cut, I’m sure of that. So why did they release an inferior version of the movie in theaters? Why can’t the Zack Snyder release his director’s cuts theatrically?

Whether or not you liked Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice when it hit theaters earlier this year, there’s a good chance that you’re curious to see the 30 minutes of footage that’s being put back into what is being called the Ultimate Edition. The alternate cut of the movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD next month (though it will hit Digital HD a few weeks earlier), so a new trailer has arrived to tout the home video release. It’s not chock full of new footage like the previous trailer was, but there are glimpses of some new shots, as well as the special features that will take you behind the scenes.

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.

Visiting the set of Zack Sndyer‘s Justice League, we were told that we would not be interviewing any of the film’s cast. And especially not Ben Affleck, whom I’ve heard typically doesn’t do press while he’s filming a movie. We were watching them film a scene that features Commissioner Gordon meeting with a few members of the Justice League (read about that scene here). As production wrapped for the day, the costume department removed his bat cowl, leaving him with a damp head and eyes ringed with black eyeshadow. On his way to his dressing room, Affleck stopped to say hello to us.
Christian [Bale] never let reporters see him with the raccoon eyes, proving that Christian is a much smarter man than I am.
