Even though production on Justice League is underway across the pond in London, we still haven’t confirmed the full cast for the first big screen assembly of DC Comics most iconic superheroes. It’s a forgone conclusion that Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher and Jason Momoa will all be back as Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman. It’s also probably likely that Henry Cavill will be back as Superman, though considering the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, maybe he’ll sit the first part of Justice League out.
Now one more member of the supporting cast has been revealed with Jeremy Irons coming back as Alfred, presumably offering guidance and assistance to The Dark Knight as he attempts to round up the other superheroes for Justice League. Read More »

Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice offered a smorgasbord of reasons to get riled up and annoyed and angry, from the inane and nonsensical plot to the cinematic Doomsday who looked like a third rate cave troll to a Superman who was an all-powerful stick-in-the-mud. But now, nearly a month after its release, one aspect irritates me like no other: the portrayal of Batman as a remorseless killer who dispatches his enemies with machine guns and explosives.
While some fans have speculated that this iteration of Batman has been driven to murder after years of psychologically agonizing crimefighting, a piece of concept art nips this theory in the bud while also dragging (the deceased) Robin through the mud. It turns out that Robin’s weapon on display in the Batcave isn’t what you think it is.

Even before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hit theaters, we knew that there was an R-rated version of the comic book flick coming to home video. Dubbed the Ultimate Edition, the new cut was going to add 30 minutes of footage back into the movie and spice it up with a little more violence that would push it to being an R-rated feature. The only way fans were going to see this was when it hit home video, but now Warner Bros. is reportedly considering releasing the Batman v Superman R-rated cut in theaters. Find out more below.

Just when you thought Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice couldn’t get grimmer or grittier or more x-treme, director Zack Snyder reveals that he had to cut one sequence because it was too dark. Yes, the director of the superhero movie that features executions, suicide bombings, sex slaves, gnarly underground fight clubs, abducted women with demeaning phrases written on their heads, and deeply unpleasant bathtub sex decided that one scene took things a little too far. Even Snyder has his limits, apparently.

Ever since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hit theaters, fans have been buzzing about the possibility of a standalone Batman movie starring Ben Affleck. And after Gal Gadot‘s truly epic debut as Wonder Woman, it’s no wonder people seem hyped for her upcoming standalone movie. But what about the third member of the DC trinity? Will Henry Cavill‘s Superman ever get to fly solo again?
While there’s no Man of Steel 2 on the Warner Bros. release schedule just yet, Cavill and director Zack Snyder aren’t ruling one out. It’s just that they need to find the right time. Or get the right script. Or they’re waiting to see how things shake out with Batman v Superman. Or something.

One of the chief complaints about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been a convoluted, unnecessarily complex story. But from my perspective, one of the more enjoyable and promising elements of the film were the seeds planted for the movies that will feature the rest of the heroes who will form Justice League. Even though the little teases of heroes like Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg aren’t pulled off as smoothly as the movie-stealing appearance of Wonder Woman, they certainly piqued my curiosity.
Now a new interview with producer Deborah Snyder gives a hint as to what we can expect from a standalone The Flash movie, and it involves teaming up with Cyborg, who had one of the more confusing Justice League appearances in Batman v Superman. Find out what Deborah Snyder had to say about The Flash movie after the jump. Read More »
Ben Affleck proved to be an excellent Bruce Wayne. Even some of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s harshest critics admitted the actor was suited for the role. We got an angrier, more vulnerable and more damaged Bruce Wayne. As depicted in the film, this version of Bruce Wayne has plenty to be angry about. In a new interview, Snyder discusses one particularly painful moment in Batman’s backstory.

In just a few weeks, Justice League starts production. Since this will be the first time Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg will be seen on the big screen at the same time, it’s bound to be bigger than even Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Of course, that all depends on whether or not the fans who were disappointed by Zack Snyder‘s comic book battle are willing to give him another chance for the DC Comics superhero ensemble.
We’re still not sure what the story will be in Justice League, but it sounds like Jesse Eisenberg may not be reprising his role as the villain Lex Luthor, at least for the first part of the two-part DC Comics flick. Read what Eisenberg had to say about Lex Luthor in Justice League after the jump, but beware of spoilers for Batman v Superman. Read More »
