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.

Batman dryly responds, “Not enough.”

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).

Willem Dafoe has one of the most interesting faces in the history of cinema. Capable of showcasing extraordinary kindness and demonic malice, his distinct look has allowed him to play everyone from Jesus Christ to the Green Goblin. The man is a treasure and his presence in any movie is gift.
So him being cast in Zack Snyder’s Justice League (alongside fellow national treasure and fellow Spider-Man alum J.K. Simmons) is only a good thing. No matter how this film turns out, it will still have had the good taste to have cast Dafoe and that’s something. But we have gathered here today because a few details about the role Dafoe is playing in Justice League have come to light. So, who or what is he playing?

Shortly after the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans were surprised to see that Warner Bros. quickly released a deleted scene from the movie. The scene in question revealed just how Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) came to be apprehended and imprisoned for the later scene when he’s confronted by Batman. However, it also raised more questions because it featured a previously unseen character with some levitating Mother Boxes briefly appearing before disintegrating and flying away from the scene. But if a new rumor about who the Justice League villain will be is true, we now know who this mysterious character is. Read More »
As the newest big-screen iteration of Batman, Ben Affleck already plays a key role in Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe. Affleck’s Dark Knight made his debut in this spring’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will be back onscreen for this summer’s Suicide Squad, and then he’ll get his own solo movie in the not-too-distant future with Affleck himself behind the camera.
And as if all that weren’t enough, Affleck is now digging even deeper into the future of the franchise. The two-time Oscar winner has signed on to executive produce the upcoming Justice League movie, which he’s already starring in for director Zack Snyder. Read More »
UPDATE: James Wan has responded on Twitter to rumors of trouble on Aquaman. See his comments below.
Just yesterday, The Flash lost director Seth Grahame-Smith, creating some uncertainty and instability for the future of the DC Comics film universe. The report cited creative differences between the filmmaker and the studio as the reason for Grahame-Smith’s departure, but it sounds like that might not be the only trouble Warner Bros. Pictures is having behind the scenes.
A new rumor from Birth.Death.Movies says James Wan is “feeling tremendous amounts of trepidation” about directing Aquaman, which he’s been attached to since last summer. Apparently Wan is in the midst of figuring out if he really wants to stay on board the comic book blockbuster featuring Jason Momoa in the lead role. Find out more about the potential of James Wan leaving Aquaman and more DC Comics movie woes after the jump. Read More »
