Three years ago, Superman got his own Christopher Nolan-influenced movie reboot, full of brooding portents and Kryptonian politics. Man of Steel was a pretty good movie, albeit one with serious flaws. Now the sequel is out, and it deals with a lot of the same ideas and themes. And fumbles them completely.
From the beginning, Supergirl has been a flawed show with a lot of heart. The “problem of the week” storytelling has occasionally fallen a little flat, but the characters have gotten sharper and sharper. But last night’s episode, “Manhunter,” proved Supergirl has become essential viewing.
Despite being on television continuously from 1988 to 2010, Superman has only had two interpretations on the big screen in the past 40 years: Richard Donner’s Silver Age-inspired fella who eradicates memories with a kiss, and Zack Snyder’s Superman. The latter version is back in a couple days, facing off against…
Film editor Miguel Branco has gone and taken most of the films adapted from DC Comic properties, and it makes them all look pretty good together, even if they’re not part of the same cinematic universe.
Every cinematic blockbuster is accompanied by a massive publicity campaign that carpet bombs the public with trailers, trailers for trailers, TV spots, more trailers and exclusive glimpses to make sure that it’s a huge hit on opening weekend.
We’re only weeks away from the premiere of Batman v Superman. And it remains to be seen if that movie will retroactively justify some of the most widely-hated choices in Man of Steel. Based on Zack Snyder’s comments over the last three years, we can guess that it won’t.
Here’s a version of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice that I’d enjoy watching. Someone went and set footage from the Adam West, George Reeves and Lynda Carter Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman shows and it works wonderfully.
There are not many people fond of the ending to Man of Steel—especially Superman’s infamous bout of neck-snapping—and there are many who eagerly await the day for Zack Snyder to apologize for the wanton destruction and general not-Superman-ness of it all. Today is not that day.
Zach Snyder just dropped a new teaser for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice on Twitter, showing off a bit of new footage that we’ve seen hinted at in earlier teasers.
This was shown in Morning Spoilers earlier today, but I think the fact that the Supergirl TV series has made a supercut of all the people Kara has saved over the course of the show’s eight episodes, because I don’t know what purpose it serves ther than as a reminder of all the people her cousin Kal-El failed to save…
Crisis on Infinite Earths—the epic 1985 DC comics saga brought together disparate heroes across DC’s vast multiverse, and eventually smooshed it all together into a single line of continuity. But now we actually have enough live action adaptations of DC’s heroes for this pretty rad fan mashup, in the style of Crisis.
“I want to see that again” was probably your first thought after watching Mad Max: Fury Road. The second may have been “I wonder what director George Miller is doing next.” He hasn’t decided yet, but he’s currently talking to DC movie people about potentially doing the second Man of Steel.
Warner Brothers recently held a well-received screening of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice for the crew and studio. Based on his performance as Batman/Bruce Wayne, it’s looking like Ben Affleck commitment to direct a stand-alone Batman film will be expanded to a trilogy.
The recent Suicide Squad footage gave us a glimpse of Batman’s cameo in the film—but there’s even more to it than we realized. A new interview with Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder and his collaborators has revealed a lot more about how these films will connect up.
Could Superman actually face the music for his actions in Man of Steel? The members of Amazing Spider-Man's Secret Six may not be whom you're expecting. A Doctor Who rumor gets an intriguing non-denial. See tons of clips and promos for Gotham, Doctor Who, Defiance and Star Wars: Rebels. Spoilers right now!
Greetings, dear readers! I regret to inform you that the price of stamps is going up yet again. I know it feel like I — I mean we, the totally real U.S. Postal Service — just raised them, but our costs are unfortunately still rising. Mainly bullets. Bullets and food. It's the post-apocalypse out here people. You can…
On top of introducing a brand new Batman and the first big-screen version of Wonder Woman, the Man of Steel sequel just added another hero to its roster. According to Variety, theater actor Ray Fisher will play Cyborg, aka Vic Stone.
The rules have changed for superhero movies. Any studio that's serious about being in the game is openly trying to copy Marvel's comic-book-esque strategy of a shared universe and an interlocking series of series, with crossovers. But which studio is most likely to succeed in grabbing at Marvel's crown?
Another classic Star Wars character may be coming back, and there's a huge Terminator Genesis casting announcement. Another supervillain is coming to Agents of SHIELD.
