Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

Zack Snyder Shares a Closer Look at the ‘Batman v Superman’ ‘Knightmare’ Costume

Batman v Superman Knightmare

Here’s something that bothered me about that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice nightmare sequence: why does he continue to wear the mask? I get the body armor; I can even set aside the whole ‘Batman-doesn’t-kill’ thing and accept the machine gun he wears during the sequence. But why the mask? If we assume that the world has ended, there’s no real reason for him to keep his civilian identity a secret, and it’s not like audiences were going to be confused at who Ben Affleck was playing in the movie. Has Bruce Wayne just gotten used to getting up every morning and putting on eye blac

Gal Gadot Describes Her First ‘Wonder Woman’ Costume Experience

Wonder Woman
Warner Bros.

One of my favorite parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was Gal Gadot’s costume as Wonder Woman. Not only was it a much-needed splash of color in an otherwise monochrome film, it was also a nice departure from the overly bulky superhero costumes that have become the norm. Ben Affleck might be a great Batman, but there were times when he looked a little bit like Ralphie’s brother in A Christmas Story, too padded up to put his arms down, let alone fight his way through a warehouse of bad guys. Wonder Woman, on the other hand, looked every bit the agile warrior we were hoping for.

No, That’s Not Gal Gadot, That’s Just a Creepily Accurate Wonder Woman Statue

Prime 1 Studio

Since arriving on the scene, Prime 1 Studio has been delivering the goods. The company's high-end statues have been impeccable, though pricey, creations that have not only captured their subjects with incredible detail, but with personality as well. It's hard to find any flaws in Prime 1's catalog already, but this new Wonder Woman 1:2 scale statue might have set a new bar for what to expect from the company.

The ComicsAlliance Halloween Costume Spooktacular 2016

Untitled-2

After a month of anticipation, "Treehouse of Horror" binges, and spooky Twitter names, Halloween is finally upon us. This special day means so much to so many people, and one of the greatest joys it gives us is licensed costumes based on comic book properties. Some of them are incredibly detailed and accurate to the source material, some of them are hilariously bad, and some, somehow, manage to be both.

We've rounded up some of the best comics-themed Halloween costumes from this year to provide you with some last minute inspiration for the big night.

Hot Toys’ Batman is a Faithful Recreation of a Very Glum Chum [Review]

Hot Toys Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Batman Figure

I did not particularly care for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. As a film I found it rather lacking, but there were elements that I would agree had some merit. Wonder Woman was cool, the fight choreography was solid, and some of the practical design work was very sharp. One element that I just never got on board with however was the new Bat-suit. I know it was more authentic to the version on the printed page, and wasn't quite as bulk or overly realistic like previous Bat-suits, but it just didn't work for me. It looked like it was cobbled together from duct tape and not befitting a superhero.

With that in mind, it's still possible to appreciate the work that went into creating Batman's new look. That's just as true for the on-screen version as it is the miniaturized action figure versions that have been circulating since the film's release. This month, Hot Toys takes its pass at the Batfleck, and even though I'm still not sold on this particular design, it's arguably the most authentic version of Batman you'll get without stealing one of Ben Affleck's suits.

Ben Affleck on the ‘Batman v Superman’ Reaction: ‘It Was Interesting’

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a tale of two heroes and a tale of two outcomes. The film made $873 million worldwide. But it was also a deeply polarizing film, satisfying many hardcore DC fans but putting off others with its dark tone and heroes that I would characterize as, how should I put this, kinda dumb. It will lead directly into the Wonder Woman and Justice League movies, along with an entire DC Extended Universe, but the film was so dark and dour, that it made a lot of viewers less excited than nervous about all the stuff to come.

Check Out These Early Costume Designs for DC’s Flash and Cyborg

Justice League
Warner Bros.

I’ve always enjoyed seeing movie costume designs that did not make the cut. So many of these first drafts at superhero costumes are completely different from the final product; sometimes I find I even enjoy the out-of-left-field designs for characters like Batman and Superman more than the ones that ended up in the movies. Either way, these designs shine a light on the revision process that takes places as the film crew hones in on the final look for these iconic characters.

Batman Voice Actor Kevin Conroy Has a Complaint About ‘Batman v Superman’

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

It’s been non-stop Suicide Squad coverage since David Ayer’s DC villain team-up hit theaters last week, but if you’re looking for a superhero intermission, Kevin Conroy is at your service. The veteran Batman voice actor would like to take you back a few months to WB’s previous DCEU installment, and share his thoughts on Zack Snyder’s hero-vs-hero epic. Spoiler: They’re not entirely positive thoughts.

Which Is Better: ‘Batman v Superman’ or ‘Suicide Squad’?

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

Suicide Squad has only been in theaters for a week, but it’s already become a flashpoint for fan discussion. (And yes, that was a DC pun, thank you very much.) Does the movie’s plot make sense? Does it matter? How much of David Ayer’s original vision wound up in the theatrical cut? And maybe the most contentious debate of all: Is the movie better than Warner Bros.’ previous entry in the DC Extended Universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?
