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…)
After a few months of wild speculation, sourceless rumors, and multiple postings of that same old ‘Sad Batfleck’ picture, we have an actual update on the semi-confirmed forthcoming Ben Affleck written-directed-staring solo Batman movie.
Matt Damon’s better half was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (Jan 9) promoting a sadly non-Batman related film, Live By Night (come on, the title is sooooo close,) and offered a brief statement on the status of the much-scrutinized DCEU production. (more…)
Whether you’re a fan of DC’s foray into a combined universe and its recent submissions of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice or the poorly reviewed Suicide Squad, it’s hard to pass up on an opportunity to see DC’s biggest and baddest on the screen together for the first time. Justice League has finally put out some new promotional material and it is looking good! They have released the final look for five of the heroes, including Cyborg. (more…)
Once upon a time, when the world was shinier and newer and less depressing, the biggest casting news to come out of the DC Cinematic Universe was the casting of former Daredevil star Ben Affleck as everyone’s favorite Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The internet came close to shaking itself down to its apoplectic foundations over such a perceived misstep by Zach Snyder and company, the Boston accent memes were many, and the future of the Justice League seemed more threatened than it ever had by the likes of Darkseid.

2016 had its share of movies. Sure, some of them were duds, but overall, it was a pretty good year for the box office, and an even better year if you were a superhero geek! Now that 2016 is almost done, we have to look forward to the plethora of awesome movies in the pipeline for 2017. Fandango, everyone’s favorite website for purchasing tickets often polls their users to see what they think. They recently asked users what movies they are looking forward to for 2017 and the results were interesting (if not predictable).
2017 is going to be a make or break year for the DC Extended Universe. That’s weird to say given its bold entry into the shared universe sweepstakes this year, but let’s face: given the reaction to Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, there’s a lot of work to be done in getting all the fans onboard. Warner Bros., of course, is eager to make converts of everyone, even opening up the set of Justice League to film critics earlier this year. Now, as we really look forward to the new year, the studio is again hoping to tease us in a positive way, with the following picture that sees three key Leaguers themselves look to the future. (more…)
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! (more…)
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.
