‘Batman vs. Superman’ Script Addresses ‘Man of Steel’ Violence Criticisms

Warner Bros.

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.

Jason Momoa Unleashes a Deluge of ‘Aquaman’ Details

Jason Momoa

The rumors that ‘Game of Thrones’ star Jason Momoa would be joining the DC Cinematic Universe as Aquaman flooded the Internet long before Ben Affleck was cast as Batman. When Momoa’s casting was made official through an announcement a few months, the news was greeted with a shrug. We already knew the worst kept secret in superhero moviedom! However, the announcement did mean that Momoa was allowed to stop dodging questioning (or outright lying) and chat about the character. And he has just revealed a few more interesting nuggets of information.

Every week or so it seems that we’ve been reporting on more cast, character, and plot additions to ‘Batman vs. Superman,’ a film that we’re starting to assume is at least four hours long—which is why the latest report regarding Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero showdown film is pleasantly surprising. As it turns out, there will be at least one major Batman character (no, not Bruce Wayne’s parents) who is already dead when this movie begins.

KGBeast To Appear In ‘Batman V Superman,’ Maybe Be The Best Thing In It

Ten Nights of the Beast, DC Comics

I've already checked out of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 18 months in advance, so every announcement about the upcoming Zack Snyder film and its attendant roster of spinoffs and franchises has been idle curiosity. Until, that is, it was announced that the KGBeast would be making an appearance.

As longtime CA readers may recall, the Beast is one of my all-time favorite villains. Originally created by the team of Jim Starlin and Jim Aparo in a four-part story called "Ten Nights of the Beast" that ran in Batman #417 - 420, the KGBeast was an assassin for hire who battled Batman in one of the most over-the-top stories of all time. And while I can hardly believe I'm saying this, he's kind of the perfect villain for David S. Goyer and Zack Snyder's version of the cinematic DC Universe.

At a presentation to investors on Wednesday morning, Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara unveiled his studio's blockbuster movie slate for the next few years through to 2020, finally confirming the titles for an ambitious number of movies based on DC Comics superhero properties.

The announcement confirms that we will finally see a long-awaited Wonder Woman movie in 2017. Gal Gadot will reprise the role after 2016's Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The announcement also includes the expected Justice League movie -- and a sequel -- the previously announced Suicide Squad movie, and pictures starring Justice League members Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Cyborg. This means DC now has one superhero movie in the works with a female lead, and three with non-white leads.

The ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Batmobile Was Stolen… By A Stormtrooper (Sort Of, Not Really)

A pretty wacky rumor sprung up over the weekend. It seems that, according to certain sources, the Batmobile from 'Batman vs Superman' had been stolen from the set, which meant that some car thief was driving around Detroit in their brand new tank. The rumor was quickly put to rest, but not before director Zack Snyder was able to joke about it.

Batmobile Photo Is Most Colorful ‘Batman V. Superman’ Image We’ve Seen Yet

While director Zack Snyder did share a look at the 'Batman vs. Superman' version of the Batmobile, it was parked in a warehouse and half-covered in smoke. In short, you couldn't really get a good sense of what it would look like in action. Today, we get a much better look at what Batfleck's Batmobile will look like in 'Batman vs. Superman' as Bruce Wayne's whip has rolled onto the film's set for the first time.

Why So Serious: Warner Bros. Reportedly Orders ‘No Jokes’ In New DC Comics Movies

superman why so serious

Comics fans have become well acquainted with the notion that sometimes, creative people learn the wrong things from successes. It's why certain comics have been dominated for going on 30 years by a "dark" and "mature" sensibility that often comes off as grim, self-serious and overcooked.

Well, get ready for that way of thinking to make its way to movie theaters very soon. According to a report at Hitfix, Warner Bros. has a strict rule for its upcoming DC Comics movies: "No jokes."
