We finally have a ton of new details about Zack Snyder’s upcoming ‘Justice League’ movie.

Some rumored titles for Zack Snyder’s Justice League recently popped up online, and a few of them sounded just a little bit silly. For a while now, the two-part superhero ensemble has been referred to as Justice League: Part One and Justice League: Part Two, though fans have wondered if Snyder and Warner Bros. might rename the two films, similar to what Marvel is planning for Avengers: Infinity War. That doesn’t appear to be the case, as DC’s Geoff Johns has revealed the actual Justice League title and…well, it’s nothing fancy.
When studios split films into multiple parts, there’s a few options for titles. They can go the simple and effective route of ‘Part One’ and ‘Part Two,’ or stylize it a bit à la Quentin Tarantino and Lars von Trier with ‘Vol. I’ and Vol. II.’ Or they can go the colon route, adding a subtitle that either works well or sounds horrible.
Jena Malone never got to make her big screen debut in the DC Cinematic Universe. Her mysterious character was cut from the theatrical version of Zack Snyder‘s ‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ but now we have the very first look at her.
Jeremy Irons isn’t one of those actors that’s going to say what you want to hear…unless you didn’t particularly like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and what you want to hear is that he agrees with you. Zack Snyder’s ambitious superhero project failed to impress critics and inspired a wave of negative reviews — all of which Jeremy Irons believes the film rightfully deserved. And he was in it, so he should know.
Jesse Eisenberg’s wildly eccentric portrayal of Lex Luthor was certainly one of the more divisive elements of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but whether you loved or hated his take on the iconic Superman villain, you have to admit that the movie was never boring when he was on screen. And it looks like he’s not going anywhere anytime soon, as Eisenberg has confirmed that Lex Luthor will appear in Justice League — or at least Part One, anyway.
We’ve seen more than one character take up the Robin mantle in various Batman comics, shows and films throughout the years — which makes the identity of the dearly departed Boy Wonder in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice somewhat intriguing. There are a couple of likely possibilities, each of them with their own plot implications, and while there’s been a fair amount of speculation, the big Robin question may have just been answered.
Remember when we all pretty much assumed that the Justice League villain would be Darkseid, one of the most powerful beings in the DC universe and a guy who was heavily teased throughout Batman vs. Superman? Ahh, those were the days. As Justice League continues filming in London, a new report suggests that Mr. Darkseid is not the film’s villain as we all assumed. Instead, it’s something even more exciting!
Just kidding, it’s Steppenwolf.
In another bit of news that lends credence to the rumors of tension between Zack Snyder and Warner Bros., Ben Affleck has been officially promoted from mere Batman to Executive Producer-Man on Justice League. Snyder is currently in production on the film in London, having begun less than two weeks after Patty Jenkins wrapped principal production on Wonder Woman.
When something goes wrong, we often revisit and analyze the past to find warning signs that were previously overlooked. If you apply that logic to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel, for instance, then you could find yourself reading old interviews with Zack Snyder to try and figure out if maybe we knew all along that these were the kinds of superhero movies he was going to make...
