For a while it’s been known that Steppenwolf would be the villain for the upcoming Justice League movie, but what wasn’t known was who would be playing the role of the character. Initial rumors were that Charles Dance would play the part, however, those rumors turned out to be false. Instead, Ciaran Hinds will be playing the big, bad villain who is the uncle of Darkseid.

Filming has wrapped on Zach Snyder‘s Justice League and the cast and crew let loose and partied hard. Aquaman (Jason Momoa) posted a bunch of party pictures to Instagram including the one above with Batman (Ben Affleck). There’s still a ton of effects and editing to do, and don’t be surprised when re-shoots are announced in a month or so, it’s just the way things are done in Hollywood these days. Hopefully there will only be one edit of the film and not some cobbled together out of three different versions… yeah we’re looking at you Suicide Squad. Click on through and enjoy the party!

2017 is already shaping up to be one blockbuster of a year. Two of the most anticipated movies are slated to come out that year. Thew New Power Rangers film is set to debut in March of 2017 while Justice League will hit theaters later that year. So it only makes sense that the two combine their marketing powers to form one giant campaign. Initially, the idea sounds really silly, but one could argue that it’s so silly it could work. However, don’t expect this to be a crossover you see on the big screen. The Power Rangers and the Justice League will come together starting January 11, 2017 at your local comic book shop.

Before you think that shooting on Justice League is through, think again. While the in-studio portion of principal photography seems to be over, there’s now location shooting before the cameras, and you know what that means: spy pics! There’s no bigger paparazzi draw than a major Hollywood production out in the open, except maybe an actress that’s just gone through a high-profile ugly divorce, and Justice League is, unfortunately, a two-fer in that regard. So as the production is shooting in Iceland, Warner Bros. beat the spoiler crowd to the punch by revealing Amber Heard as Mera in all her Queen of the Seven Seas glory.  (more…)

After just a little under six months of filming, principal photography on the Justice League movie recently completed and to commemorate the committing DC Comics premier super team to celluloid, director Zack Snyder tweeted out a  sizzle reel. Clocking in at 90 seconds, the video showcases a bunch of behind the scenes shots and a few glimpses of new footage, all accompanied by the requisite Zack Snyder crunchy guitar riff because the 90s only end if you let it.

Heck, we even get a little taste of a certain man who is super. (more…)

Yes, it is #BatmanDay. If you didn’t buy Batman a present, you’ve still got a couple of hours, but it looks like today it’s Zack Snyder that’s handing out the gifts. As you may have heard, there’s presently a Justice League movie in production, and while it features the Dark Knight as a key figure within it, it also features one of his main allies, Commissioner Gordon. Gotham City’s top cop has a small but pivotal role in the Justice League film, and it will be up to Academy Award-winner J.K. Simmons to bring him to life again, and now we know what Simmons will look like in the film. (more…)

On Monday, rumor had it that  Jared Leto would be reprising his role as the Clown Prince of Crime sooner rather than expected, which had many DC fans quite excited. Suicide Squad, which didn’t  feature a whole lot of Jared Leto’s version of The Joker, who has expressed extreme displeasure with the lackluster use of his character for all the time he put in. Those of us who liked his take on the character were looking forward to the possibility of him showing up in future films in the universe. Well, it seems that we now have a possible answer to our desires.

When Warner Bros made Man of Steel, it was supposed to be the beginning of a DC cinematic universe. Much like Marvel has been crushing it with their cinematic universe, DC was going to start making legit superhero films. Unfortunately, DC has been going through some growing pains in building their cinematic universe. While their films have been commercially successful, many disagree about the quality of the films. While some have disliked the story or editing, many agree that the films were just too “dark.” In Man of Steel, we had a 9/11-esque battle with massive collateral damage.  In Batman v Superman, Batman was a murder-prone.  While trying to differentiate themselves from the sunnier Marvel films, DC might have taken it a step too far. Needless to say, there’s a need for some course correction.

There’s a lot riding on Justice League, more so than usual when it comes to one of these huge, tentpole superhero movies. It was just a few months ago that Zack Snyder‘s continuation as a creative force in the DC Extended Universe was in doubt after the lackluster performance and reception for Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But despite that it was full steam ahead with Justice League anyway, and concerted effort’s been made to show off this Snyder joint as one that’s learned the lessons of the past. But if one person knows about the behind the scenes drama of Justice League it’s new Commissioner Gordon, J.K. Simmons, and he said that he enjoyed the laid back tone on the set. (more…)
