It’s no secret that Hollywood has a hard time embracing older women (related: this brilliant Amy Schumer sketch), but there’s one who will never have to struggle to get work: Wonder Woman. The immortal superhero has been alive for centuries (depending on which origin and continuity you prefer), and in case you were worried that the new Warner Bros. iteration of the character would try to make her more human, you needn’t worry anymore.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
There have been rumors floating around about Lex Luthor’s role in Batman vs. Superman, but there’s been little confirmation about anything involving Jesse Eisenberg’s take on the character. So far, we pretty only know that this version of Luthor is still bald, thanks to the first official image of Eisenberg in character. That’s it, really. But a new rumor suggests something a little more interesting for Superman’s longtime nemesis.
Jared Leto’s Joker will be an important component in Suicide Squad, but we may get to see him on screen before then, as it’s being reported that Leto will make a cameo appearance in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman before he makes his formal debut in Suicide Squad. If the rumor is true, it looks like DC is definitely taking another page out of the Marvel handbook, which isn’t exactly a bad thing. In other Joker-related news, those laughable tattoos from our first official look at Leto in character might not actually be a part of his look.
Beyond the recent Batman vs. Superman trailer, we still don't know a lot about the upcoming superhero rumble. Particularly, why are Superman and Batman even fighting each other? It might seem weird to seek superhero movie guidance from an astrophysicist, but when that astrophysicist is Neil deGrasse Tyson, whose voice you heard in the aforementioned trailer, you take notice. Especially when he starts describing the Batman vs. Superman plot and the main crux of the beef between these two superheroes.
For better or worse, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel took more than a few pages from the Christopher Nolan school of superhero filmmaking, placing Superman and his foes in a bleak, gray world. The video above asks a very interesting question: What if he didn’t? What would Man of Steel (and the upcoming Batman vs. Superman) look like if Snyder let the natural colors of Superman’s costume and his world do what colors do best?
Despite the Batman vs. Superman trailer leaking online over the weekend, Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder still went ahead with their big IMAX presentation yesterday in over 35 cities across the U.S. and Canada. It should have been the first time anyone saw the trailer, but after the leak, everyone had seen it. So Snyder had to give the fans a little something extra...
IMAX theaters are screening a special event on Monday to hype next year's Zack Snyder movie Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it's not clear exactly what attendees are going to get, but at the very least they can expect to pick up a couple of pretty sweet posters. The original plan was that attendees would be the first to see the trailer for the movie, which introduces Ben Affleck as our new sourpuss Batman, and sees the return of Henry Cavill as our joyless Superman. Gal Gadot also stars as a presumably grinchy Wonder Woman, but she isn't in the trailer.
That plan got nixed when the trailer was leaked online, forcing Warner Bros to release an official high definition version on Friday night, which you can watch right here. Since seeing the same trailer on the big screen won't be enough to satisfy everyone attending the IMAX event, Snyder has promised to reveal new footage from the movie, but on Twitter on Sunday night he also revealed another incentive; a couple of posters that will be given out to attendees.
Warner Bros. has planned one of the most ambitious trailer launches in history for their upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. On Monday, April 20, fans can attend a special event at IMAX theaters around the country where the new Batman v Superman trailer will debut after a special introduction from director Zack Snyder. They spent this week teasing that big unveiling with previews of the preview on Snyder’s Twitter feed. This was a carefully orchestrated media event.
Arthur Curry has never looked finer. Late Thursday night, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder tweeted a first look at actor Jason Momoa in the role of Aquaman, a member of the big screen Justice League making his debut in next year's Bat/Supes throwdown.
One of the chief criticisms of ‘Man of Steel’ was the way that Superman dealt with his epic battles—primarily, that he wasn’t concerned enough about ensuring the safety of the citizens of Metropolis, and how he recklessly used the entire city as his battleground. Thanks to the outspoken dissatisfaction with the film’s climax, it seems as though the script for ‘Batman vs. Superman’ will address those complaints and try to make Superman a more likable and cautious hero.
