While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jason Momoa revealed that he had to keep the secret that he was cast as Aquaman for four or five years. Is it really possible that he was cast that long ago?

You can feel Zack Snyder‘s fingerprints all over Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — for better or for worse, it really feels like a Zack Snyder film, right down to the fact that most of the characters seem to share Snyder’s taste for vests. But you probably didn’t know that Snyder is actually, physically in the movie. His cameo is so small that it’s basically impossible to pick him out, but cinematographer Larry Fong has revealed where exactly you can find him. Read More »
Since we’re coming to the end of 2016, movie studios are starting to push a preview of what’s in store for the big screen in 2017, especially on the blockbuster front. It’s going to be another crowded summer, but one of the more anticipated movies of the year won’t be arriving until this fall, and that’s Justice League. But that’s not stopping Warner Bros. Pictures from stirring up some hype.
Even though we have still a little under 11 months away from the release of Justice League, the studios included mention of the movie in their 2017 movie preview press kit. Within their brief bit of information on the superhero ensemble movie, they included one cast member who hadn’t yet been confirmed by the studio, and one that we hadn’t heard of at all yet.

Earlier this year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice united a good chunk of the Justice League: Ben Affleck‘s Batman, Henry Cavill‘s Superman, and Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman. But next year’s Justice League will see them recruiting still more members, including Ezra Miller‘s The Flash. Sure, we’ve already seen the big-screen version of the Scarlet Speedster in Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, but those were mere cameos. We’ll get to know him a whole lot better in Justice League, and a new photo today offers a better look at him and his fancy costume.
See it below, along with some commentary from Miller about his character. Read More »
For awhile now, Warner Bros. Pictures has had their release slate for the DC Extended Universe locked down for the next few years with some minor changes here and tehre. However, there has been another change made to the schedule in order to accommodate a movie that wasn’t part of the original ambitious schedule for DC Comics movies down the pipeline.
Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice all the way back in August of 2013, but it wasn’t until the following summer that we got word of Warner Bros. developing a new solo Batman movie. Since then the movie has grown to be quite an anticipated project with Ben Affleck working on the script with DC’s Geoff Johns as well as getting behind the camera as director.
Now we have an idea of when to expect Ben Affleck’s movie, reportedly titled The Batman, in theaters, because one of DC’s scheduled superhero movies is being pushed back for it. Find out more about Ben Affleck’s Batman movie release date below. Read More »

Like Star Wars, but wish it were a little more like Batman v Superman? Zack Snyder has you covered. The DC director has taken it upon himself to mash up the Batman v Superman trailer with Star Wars, reframing the conflict as “Dark Side Knight v Superjedi.” It’s a cute little exercise, but one that’s bound to ruffle some feathers in both fandoms — especially once you realize this means he’s cast Batman as some sort of Sith lord.

The Batman is in good hands right now. Putting aside whatever you think of Zack Snyder‘s portrayal of the character, it’s Ben Affleck who has the keys to Batman franchise. The director of Gone Baby Gone, The Town, and Argo is making the next Batman film, so there’s reason to look forward to the future of these movies. We still don’t fully know what to expect from Affleck’s vision for Batman, but we do know what the franchise would look like if The Dark Knight Returns writer Frank Miller had his druthers.
Below, learn Frank Miller’s Batman movie idea.

Two weeks ago we got our first look at Mera, the Queen of Atlantis and wife of Aquaman (Jason Momoa). She plays a role in Zack Snyder‘s Justice League, which recently wrapped shooting in London, but the size of her role in that film remains unknown. We do know the character will have a large part to play in James Wan‘s Aquaman. The director, who envisions the film as a “swashbuckling action adventure” and a “high seas adventure story,” says Aquaman and Mera are far from married at the start of Aquaman.
Below, learn more about the Aquaman and Mera relationship.

Right now Zack Snyder is hard at work on Justice League over in Iceland, where we just got our first look at Amber Heard as Mera, the Queen of Atlantis. The film marks the continuation of the DC Extended Universe that began with Man of Steel and grew with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The latter film allowed Zack Snyder to realize his dream of bringing his take on Frank Miller’s more grizzled version of The Dark Knight to the big screen. The Caped Crusader ended up being played by Ben Affleck, but at one point Snyder had someone else in mind, and it’s actually still possible for him to follow through on that. Read More »
