There’s been a lot of rumours about the status of Justice League recently, but in a development no one was expecting, it’s been announced this evening that director Zack Snyder is leaving the production in a critical time during its post-production to deal with a family tragedy. As Snyder and his wife and co-producer Deborah Snyder deal with their grief, the Justice League has been left in the capable hands of a filmmaker that knows something about bringing superhero teams to the big screen, The Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon.

All eyes are on Wonder Woman, which is just a few short weeks away from being released. While the DC Extended Universe series of films have made money, that have so far lacked a critical and fan excitement factor that’s enjoyed by DC’s esteem competition in the comic book movie race, so there’s a lot banking on Gal Gadot’s Amazonian princess to get the job done. Meanwhile, Justice League continues its journey through post-production towards its November release, but there may be a hiccup. One site is reporting that sources are telling them that Justice League isn’t so much undergoing reshoots as a total and complete reconstruction of the film. Twice. (more…)
This time a year ago we were trying to shake off the disgruntlement of our disappointment concerning Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. One of the places where BvS went wrong was that it it was just over two-and-a-half hours long while being almost incomprehensible plot-wise speaking. Almost immediately, Warner Bros. said, “Hey, if you want the plot to make sense, you should watch this Blu-ray version that’s over three-hours long!” So either because Warners has decided that longer is better, or because they only way they can do Justice League properly is with more time, get ready for an epic runtime for the DC superhero team-up movie.

Earlier, the long-anticipated Justice League trailer dropped for the upcoming DC Extended Universe movie. The action-packed movie is expected to unite Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash under Wonder Woman and Batman’s leadership as a new threat is emerging. The trailer was awesome and hit all the necessary chords needed to spark interest in the DCEU after such films as Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad weren’t as well received as expected. It looks like Aquaman is going to steal the show and once again Battfleck is still awesome! Each member of the Justice League looks to have their moments to shine and have awesome moments for the upcoming fi;m. If you paid attention today to the internet, everyone was loving it!
After parading mini character teasers and posters over the last few days, the new Justice League trailer has been unleashed. It’s fun, action packed, and by gosh, if Aquaman doesn’t steal the show. And, man, what a show it is. (more…)
The big DC Films team-up movie, Justice League, is set to drop a whole new trailer this upcoming Saturday (March 25,) so of course that means a galactic threat level hype machine is currently laying waste to social media across the globe that would leave Despero envious. From Twitter, to YouTube, to Facebook and beyond, Warner Bros. social media interns have been enduring the first 3 cords of The White Stripes ‘Icky Thump’ on repeat as each member of the team has been getting their own 20 second teaser and character poster.
Aquaman was up first, shortly followed by a few other teammates: (more…)

Other than last years Comic-Con teaser/sizzle reel and a couple of officially released images, things have been kind of quiet on the forthcoming big screen debut of The Justice League. With the film knuckle deep in post-production, director Zack Snyder has released one of his patented “we making a movie” behind the scenes stills of someone hard at work color processing a scene. Of course that scene shows off Batman mid being all Batman-y. Classic Zack, amiright? (more…)
Later on this year, we will see the next installment of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), Justice League. In the aftermath of Batman v Superman, Bruce Wayne will be gathering various metahumans to form a team to deal with an upcoming threat. As in most cinematic universe films, characters from previous films will be continuing their roles. We can count on Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman of course. In addition, we will be meeting new characters that will join the Justice League like Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg. That pretty much covers the superheroes, but what about the supporting players. The first two DCEU movies have dealt primarily in Metropolis, so many of the supporting characters were from Superman lore.
Another one of life’s great mysteries solved! When talking about the plot of the upcoming Justice League, it was revealed that the story would hinge around the search for three Mother Boxes left on Earth. One was left to the Amazonians, Wonder Woman’s (Gal Gadot) people, and another was left with the Atlantians, who are ruled by Aquaman (Jason Mamoa). But where is the third Mother Box? People who saw Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice thought they knew, and now their thoughts are confirmed. The third Mother Box did indeed merge with Victor Stone and turned him into the superhero Cyborg (played by Ray Fisher). (more…)
