We pretty much knew that Zack Snyder would end up directing Justice League, but now that Warner Bros. has revealed official plans for its giant DC Comics movie slate, there’s an interesting detail. Snyder is confirmed to direct not just one Justice League film, but two films.
More interesting are the titles. This isn’t one film and a sequel, but a two-part story. Zack Snyder will direct Justice League Part One for release in 2017, and Justice League Part Two for 2019. Read More »

Okay, so as I said yesterday, we usually try to focus on entertainment news and avoid celebrity stories, but the Star Wars Episode 7 cast and crew taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge felt entertainment news-worthy enough to feature on the site. I honestly thought that was the last of those videos we’d feature on /Film but now the comic book superheroes are taking the challenge in full costume: Henry Cavill and Amy Adams both took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on the set of Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in their film costumes. I’m going to call it the Superman Ice Bucket Challenge.
Thats right, Cavill is wearing his complete Man of Steel Superman suit and Adams is dressed as reporter Lois Lane. We absolutely needed to share this video in case you missed it. And one Ice Bucket Challenge is nothing for Superman, so they give our favorite alien superhero something extra. Watch the Superman ice bucket challenge video embedded after the jump now.

UPDATE: Ben Affleck is currently shooting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We’ve seen photos of him on set, he appeared at Comic-Con to promote it, but not much has changed in regards to his feelings.
In September 2013, the actor praised the script’s unique take on the character, the work of director Zack Snyder, and discussed how he got cast – with Warner Bros. showing him clips of previous superhero casting backlash. Now, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said all of this again. We’ve got the new Ben Affleck Batman quotes, along with the old ones (and a video), below.

While photos of the main heroes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have been released, we have yet to see images of the heavy. That would be Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. We’ve heard rumors about how the character plays into the story, having to do with the destruction in Man of Steel, but we hadn’t heard how he plans to wreak havoc on Batman and Superman themselves. We now have an idea thanks to quotes from an extra on the film and another site.
If true, these are massive, massive Batman v Superman spoilers so beware. Read More »
We’ve known Ben Affleck was going to be the next Batman for almost a year. Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. made the surprise announcement on August 22, 2013 and even then, the vision was incredibly strong. “[Affleck] has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne,” Snyder said at the time. That quote, plus the connection to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, made it clear the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Caped Crusader was a much different version than we’re used to.
Now, one of the film’s producers has honed in on exactly how much older Bruce Wayne is than not just Clark Kent, but previous Batman’s before him. Read the Ben Affleck Batman info below. Read More »
The biggest news this week came from Warner Bros, who gave release dates to ten upcoming DC Comics movies through 2020. Nine of those are untitled and the first, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, will be out March 25, 2016. While untitled, we have a pretty good idea what a few of those movies are going to be. Justice League is a lock. Wonder Woman has a good shot. Shazam is a strong possibility and a few others.
Fortunately Dan Fellman, Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution, spoke to Entertainment Weekly and said some of the titles will officially be announced later this month. He also commented on the seemingly strange strategy of opening a massive blockbuster in March and teased that Justice League might follow Dawn of Justice quickly. Read about the potential Justice League release date and more below. Read More »
This is so good. Friday morning, a Detroit radio station was talking crap about how Aquaman could fit into Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Then someone named Zack called into their show. This person claimed to be director Zack Snyder, and having talked to Zack Snyder in the past, I’ll say it sounds just like him. /Film has since independently confirmed, yes, this is Zack Snyder.
The director wouldn’t say if Aquaman was in the movie or not, but defended the character’s abilities and how they might match up against, say, those of Superman. Listen to the Zack Snyder Aquaman phone call below. Read More »
