To recap, it was announced back in May that Justice League director Zack Snyder was stepping away from the film in order to take care of himself and his family after a personal tragedy. In his stead, Avengers filmmaker Joss Whedon was going to carry the ball down field to the end zone, but with the caveat that he was going to be handling some pre-planned reshoots that he was already preparing with Snyder before his departure. In other words, Whedon would be honouring Snyder’s style and choices in finishing the film. But what if that isn’t really the case? (more…)
While Ben Affleck will be doing appearances and press for Warner Bros. Justice League this weekend, word is making the Internet rounds that the powers that be at WB are planning on gracefully recasting Affleck from the role for future movies. Now this isn’t to say that Affleck might still don the cowl for one more movie after Justice League, but going forward Warner Bros. is most likely already looking for another actor. (more…)
The latest addition to the DC extended universe has raised the bar for the company’s cinematic output. Wonder Woman has far surpassed anyone’s expectations. Through the stellar performance by not only Gal Godot as Diana Princess of Themyscira, but from the equally brilliant supporting cast, from Chris Pine as Steve Trevor at Diana’s side to the host of Amazonian warriors to raised her. It has been long established that Diana herself will return to the DCEU, in Justice League, which is due for release later this year, if nothing else. Director Patty Jenkins has already expressed an interest in returning for a sequel, but nothing has been confirmed yet. (more…)
A few days back Heroic Hollywood‘s head honcho, Umberto Gonzalez, revealed that a new intro for the DC Extend Universe will debut before Wonder Woman (he was asked about it on twitter and he replied “CONFIRMED! It’s 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥” so yes there is a new intro and I am guessing 5 fires is a good thing? Bad? Should someone dial 9-1-1?) Now just hours away from the early screenings of the new DCEU film a it has apparently leaked online. (more…)
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…)
