One of the biggest criticisms about how Warner Bros. was handling its DC properties was there wasn’t one person overseeing it all. It was a large group of people, too many cooks in the kitchen, and that diluted the overall vision. There was no equivalent of Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige. Well, DC Films has finally…
After Batman v Superman, we all pretty much knew who the villain of Justice League would be, right? Darkseid. Lex Luthor seemed to tease him in one of the film’s final images, talk about a being from beyond in his last speech, and we even see his symbol in Batman’s dream. But this may not be the case.
Yes. I know that sounds impossible, but I’ll explain. It’s from the end of the movie, so spoilers ahead.
Despite the abundance of Batman v Superman’s negative reviews and the film’s swift, severe drop in box office sales since its debut a week and a half ago (even with an utter lack of competition!), Warner Bros. executives seem adamant in learning absolutely nothing from the movie’s problems.
Seven years ago before he became the face of DC’s cinematic universe, Zack Snyder adapted one of DC’s most famous graphic novels, Watchmen. And critical reaction was divided. All these years later, however, the movie holds up for me, for one simple reason: It’s incredibly gorgeous.
In Batman v Superman, one of the many teases to the larger DC Universe is Bruce Wayne’s Batcave memorial to Robin. Logic, and those ominous laughs painted on the chest, suggest the Joker killed him. Now we have confirmation, as well as a few more details.
Given its massive box office, you likely saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this weekend. And whether you loved it or hated it, chances are you had some questions about the portion of the movie you managed to stay awake for. As always, our patented Spoiler FAQ has the answers you seek!
There’s a reason Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice went with that slightly wordy title. In addition to featuring a showdown between the two DC heavyweights, Zack Snyder’s film was largely created to help set up a bigger DC Extended Universe. How exactly did it do that? We’ve got you covered.
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.
This week brings the latest Zack Snyder opus to the big screen, which led to the news that Snyder really wants to make Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead into a movie, which led all of us to talk about the last time Snyder put his id on rampant display: Sucker Punch.
Batman v Superman is already overstuffed with characters. Currently, it’s got everyone from Man of Steel, Batman, Alfred, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, Aquaman, the Flash... and originally there were going to be even more.
Some of the biggest questions about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have to do with the shared universe it sets in motion. How will it affect future DC Comics movies, and who is steering the ship? The film’s director, Zack Snyder, explained all that and more at a press conference today.
This news made my brain throw up a “404 File Not Found” page as a form of self-defense. It just couldn’t reconcile this with reality. I’m so tired, guys. I need to lie down for a moment.
A few days ago, many people were shocked—shocked!—at a pair of new studies that found that many Americans have authoritarian tendencies. They want a strong leader, who can sort out “those” people. This went against everything we had lazily chosen to believe about America! But it’s also pretty apparent if you pay any…
Even though there were early rumors that Warner Bros. might back a Brinks truck up to Christian Bale’s home in order to have him appear as Batman in the new DC movie universe, Zack Snyder says that was that never going to happen—but that doesn’t mean Bale still couldn’t have appeared in BvS.
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.
Oh, Zack. Never change.
Do you see it? Batman v Superman and Justice League director Zack Snyder posted the above photo on his Twitter account Monday and, in the back left corner, revealed our first look at the new Flash costume.
Warner Bros. has announced that Zack Snyder’s two-part Justice League film will start shooting on April 11. That’s mere days after the opening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice—and the news comes after several weeks of speculation and uproar overs rumors that the studio was worried about Snyder’s Batman v Superman.
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.
