Dawn of the Justice League

Justice-League-Movie-Logo-Black-BGLast week dozens of comic and movie websites got the chance to visit the set of Justice League. Many, myself included, viewed this as a sort of “damage control” on Warner Bros.’ part. After the less than expected final total for Batman V Superman, an executive shake up at Warner Bros, and rumors of director Zack Snyder having more pressure put onto him after the “failure” of BvS, it’s not hard to imagine that this set visit would be designed to try and turn the tide of the public perception of the film.

SPOILERS

Three years. Three years of casting rumors, movie announcements, news of the studio being afraid of the finished project, and of fans wondering if Warner Bros could pull off their own cinematic universe based on the characters in DC comics. It’s been a long road, but we’re finally here. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has been released, and with it, the DC Cinematic Universe has begun. Read the rest of this entry

Batman V….

imageThe Batman V Superman hype train is rearing up yet again, this time releasing a brand new (and MUCH better) trailer. With Deadpool out of the way and Civil War dropping in May, it’s clear sailing for WB’s upcoming mega movie to clean up at the box office, But when looking at the marketing materials for this film, it’s looking more and more like WB want you think that this is a Batman movie guest-starring Superman, as opposed to a Batman AND Superman movie. Nearly all of the marketing, especially the newest trailer, have a strong focus on Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight, which begs the question: what’s Warner Bros so afraid of? Read the rest of this entry

Batman V Superman: Civil War

ImageWell, it’s certainly been a pretty busy two weeks, hasn’t it? With the Captain America: Civil War trailer and the latest Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, we’ve had plenty of nerdy cinematic goodness to feast on. Naturally though, we nerds have to decide which trailer was better. Hitting just a week apart (and both premiering on Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel), and featuring two major superheroes battling, it’s almost impossible not to compare Civil War and Batman V Superman’s latest sneak peaks. Right now, it seems like Civil War has the upper hand, but why is that, exactly? Read the rest of this entry

On Leaks and Trailers

picstitchMy, my, my. What a week for nerd news. Not only have we gotten a ton of information on Star Wars The Force Awakens, Battlefront, and Rogue One, but we’ve also gotten a brand spankin’ new trailer for the upcoming restart of the franchise. Not to be outdone, we also got a look at Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice this week as well.

Actually, Batman V Superman was outdone. By Star Wars. Read the rest of this entry

Hello, Mr. Luthor

lex-luthor

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we finally have our look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. And he looks pretty much exactly how we all expected him to. He’s bald, smug, and looks pretty sinister. If I was judging Eisenberg on looks alone, I’d say he’s going to be an awesome fit. Read the rest of this entry

Let’s Ride Some Sharks, My Sun and Stars

10292538_10101487226014051_416943994327306903_nLate last night, Zack Snyder tweeted out the first image of Jason Momoa as Aquaman.

And he looks incredibly badass.

Now he’s not exactly like the Aquaman we all know and love from the comics. Yeah, he’s got some blonde streaks in his hair, but the Arthur Curry we know doesn’t have hair quite that long (well, at least not since the 90’s). In fact, this Curry has more in common with Momoa’s take on Conan The Barbarian and his more famous role as Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones than the Aquaman that appeared on Superfriends, and that’s a-okay in my book.

Round Robin

32255It’s been a busy week for Warner Bros. Not only have they released their slate of the upcoming DC superhero movies (leading into 2020), they’ve also potentially let slip that yet another superhero may be making an appearance in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice: Robin.

Not just any Robin though. Rumor has it that we’ll be seeing Carrie Kelly, the Robin from The Dark Knight Returns pop up in the film, played by Suckerpunch’s Jena Malone.  If this is true, it’s another cue that Zack Snyder is using from Frank Miller’s classic to influence the film, and it also brings up a lot of different questions, like “does this mean there have been other Robins”, “is Batman REALLY this old”, and “Carrie Kelly, really?” Read the rest of this entry

To The Batmobile!

This week we got our first real glimpse of the Batmobile in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. And guess what? The Internet pretty much hates it.

But guess what? It’s exactly like every other Batmobile that’s appeared in a Batman movie. Read the rest of this entry
