Warner Bros has officially announced that Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman movie will be titled Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice title is obviously playing upon the announced Justice League follow-up. Principal photography starts today in Detroit, MI.
I really hate they are going for a V instead of “Vs.” and also the “Dawn of Justice” subtitle makes it feel like how Marvel Studios titled Captain America: The First Avenger to get people to see the film, billing it as the prequel to the big superhero team-up. But did they really have to do that kind of promotion for a Batman vs. Superman film? Shouldn’t those name brands have been good enough?

Zack Snyder‘s reveal of Ben Affleck‘s new Batsuit was international news. Fans everywhere analyzed the photo like it was evidence in a murder trial, dissecting the costume’s texture, the size of specific elements, Affleck’s muscular structure, and more. Snyder specifically released the photo in black and white, leaving the color of the suit up for debate. Photoshoppers everywhere took the hint and colored-in the image giving fans a bunch of options of what the suit might really look like.
Some might remember, long before the world saw the suit, director, Batman fan and friend of Affleck Kevin Smith admitted he’d seen it. “You have not seen this costume in a movie, on film before,” Smith said at the time, “For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending.” Well, the photo Snyder released kind of looks like other suits, so Smith clarified his original statement. He said the suit he saw was the Frank Miller-designed, Dark Knight Returns combo of blue and grey. Read More »
Zack Snyder revealed both the new Batman costume and the Batmobile from his upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman. It’s a moody black and white shot, and we don’t really get to see the full car, but I think the fact that Ben Affleck‘s Batman is standing next to it, in costume, is more than enough to make up for that. See the first image of the new Batman suit and Batmobile below. Read More »

The potential Justice League roster just expanded by one in Zack Snyder‘s new vision of the DC Universe. Theater actor Ray Fisher (not the football player) has been cast as Cyborg in Batman vs. Superman. Since Fisher just played Muhammed Ali in a play staged in New York, he should have the chops to sign on as Cyborg. Read More »
Directing a massive superhero film has lots of privileges. Money? Sure. Fame? Of course. But also the ability to geek out and see things before anyone else in the world. In a new interview, Zack Snyder – the director of Man of Steel and 2016′s Batman vs. Superman – admits he doesn’t know when fans will get to see the new Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman costumes. But he has a huge of them photo up in his office, geeks out over it daily, and really wants to upload it. He just knows he can’t.
He also talks about the first moment Batman was mentioned as a possible foil for Superman in the sequel, what it will be like when they finally show down, the “rivalry” with Marvel Studios and, oddly, Slashfilm. Read the quotes below. Read More »
