The Justice League movie is a film that carries a lot of potential. It has enough time to get what Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice got wrong, right and has the opportunity to lead into a new set of films with a stellar cast. Adams, Batfleck, Cavill, Gadot, Miller and Momoa all return from BvsS with one huge addition. J.K. Simmons was added to the cast in early March to play Commissioner Gordon alongside Affleck’s Batman. Simmons is a huge signing for any film, let alone one that has the stature and potential of The Justice League. Best known for playing ever-so slightly heavy handed jazz instructor, Fletcher, in 2014’s massive success Whiplash Simmons has shown he has much more in his locker than a surly editor of a Spider obsessed newspaper. Recently a bearded J.K. sat down with DP/30 to talk about his future as Commissioner Gordon in The Justice League. (more…)
Word is making the Internet rounds that Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of Zack Snyder‘s Justice League. While one might expect Dafoe to continue his superhero movie villainous ways, the character he’s been cast for is one of the good guys and will appear in both parts of the Justice League movies. Which character and other assorted details are being held under wraps for the moment, which means one thing. Hundreds if not thousands of speculation posts on Defoe’s character. Let’s get started shall we? (more…)
With Man of Steel and Batman v Superman now completed and Suicide Squad coming this summer, DC Entertainment is continuing to build their cinematic universe. After next year’s Wonder Woman, the next film on their slate is Justice League Part 1 (currently beginning production). Many fans saw Batman v Superman filled with many Easter Eggs in the movie that seems to hint at an eventual confrontation with DC’s main baddie Darkseid. Not so fast… (more…)
The natural progression in storytelling is to start from the beginning and go until the end. However, it seems that this won’t be the case when The Flash and Aquaman hit theaters in 2018. According to a new report, both films will not feature an origin story like many super hero movies have done in the past. Instead, their solo films will be an extension of the story already being told in the Justice League movie that is set to come out in 2017.
Zack Snyder‘s Justice League has found its Police Commissioner Gordon in Oscar winner J.K. Simmons. Having already played J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man movies, this screenplay (written by Chris Terrio) shouldn’t feel like unfamiliar territory. Produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, Warner Bros. plans to release the film in two parts, with Justice League: Part One starting to shoot mid-April. After the former’s slated November 17, 2017 release, Part Two will arrive in theaters June 14, 2019. (more…)
DC sure is confident in their cinematic universe. While Man of Steel opened to mixed reviews from critics and fans, the polarizing response it got certainly isn’t slowing DC’s plans. It seems like DC is so enthusiastic about their film franchise that they want to get the ball rolling right away. That’s why the upcoming Batman V Superman will immediately follow up Man of Steel’s story by introducing Batman and Wonder Woman. There will even be small appearances from Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash. Moreover, the Wonder Woman solo film is already filming, so it’s clear that DC is wasting no time here. As if all of that wasn’t enough, we’ve got perhaps the biggest DC film of all time set to start shooting in less than two months.
Batman V Superman is soon going to hit theaters, heralding the greatest DC Movie Universe crossover ever. While superhero nerds across the world wait for the Brave And the Bold to make their very first cinematic debut, it’s important to remember about the JLA movie that never was, the brain-child of Mad Max‘s daddy, George Miller…
Cartoon Network is bringing back a duo as well-known as Batman and the Joker themselves. Their new quarter hour animated series from Warner Bros. Animation, titled Justice League Action, will feature iconic DC Entertainment characters- two of them being voiced by Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill. Hamill will return as The Joker to Conroy’s Batman/Bruce Wayne; a character Conroy hasn’t voiced in an ongoing animated series since 2006 with the end of Justice League Unlimited. This is Cartoon Network’s first DC Comics-based franchise series to be launched since, and most likely spurred on by, the immensely successful Teen Titans Go! (more…)
Dawn Of Justice hasn’t even been released and it has already been a point of contention, lots of hype and a torrent of fan speculation. Obviously, Warner Bros have a heck of a lot riding on the spanking new DC Movie Universe that they are going to throw at us and it seems like they are already pulling all the stops. Already, the new Suicide Squad trailer is ready to hit the Interwebs and the Cartoon Network animated series, DC Films Presents: The Dawn of the Justice League is about to prep us for the next big-budget incarnation of the Justice League of America.
In a concerted effort to get the hype-train rolling into full speed, Warner Bros has gone ahead to reveal their concept art for their new Justice League, as well as to present the full roster and look of Earth’s Bravest and Boldest.
