After helming Wonder Woman since the launch of the New 52, Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang will be handing over the keys to DC’s premier heroine to Meredith and David Finch, with Meredith writing and her husband David providing the art. The shift in the creative team is part of an overall facelift for the title, with even the storylines changing as they veer away from the Greek myth-centric stories that Azzarello and Chiang told and instead start looking into Diana’s relationship with the Justice League and how it affects her duties with the Amazons.  (more…)

This Just In: The sun is round, people get easily offended on the internet, and there will be a Justice League movie following Batman and Superman: Friendship is Magic; this according to The Wall Street Journal, the acknowledged primary source for nerd news.

To direct Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavil), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and all the other eventual members of the Justice League (who will play Snapper Carr?!?!), Warner Bros. will once again turn to Zack Snyder, the man behind both the Man of Steel and its upcoming sequel as they hope to release the Justice League: Rise of the Superfriends as soon as 2018.  (more…)

I know. Marvel’s kicking DC’s @$$, Warners is grapsing desperately to catch up, Zack Snyder is a hollow, talentless hack; all the talking points for why Man of Steel 2 (AKA: Batman Vs Superman) will be handing its lunch money to Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016. But let’s put all that aside for the moment and talk about expectations. Not yours or mine, but the director’s. Snyder is talking about his own ideas, how he struck upon the notion that led to the movie known to all Batman Vs Superman, and he’s also talking about those initial screen tests for the costumes on the holy trinity: Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman. (Sadly, the above image is as close as you’ll get to seeing it for yourself… For nooooooowwwwwwww…) (more…)

Leaked Poster Reveals ‘Batman versus Superman’ Title

With CinemaCon officially wrapped up there seems to be a few dangling threads. Late last week, twitter was abuzz with the possibility that there might be a few reveals trickling out of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel; most notably the big reveal on Ben Affleck‘s Batsuit in celebration of DC’s launch of Batman’s 75th anniversary celebration. Those fires were kicked up a notch when Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara told the New York Times that announcements (note the plural) on a unified DC cinematic universe were imminent.

Well, the weekend has come and gone, and so far we haven’t see any sign of those announcements (save for those Green Lantern rumblings.) But, that might not be entirely true. The folks over at SpoilerShoot.com have posted a handful of pictures late last night from what was reported to be the abandoned launch for DC’s foray into the joined comic book universe market.  (more…)

‘Man of Steel’ Sequel Won’t be Closely “Tied” to the Comics?

- 03-04-14Comics, Film Posted by Brent Cook

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder- who recently sat down with Hero Complex to discuss a variety of Batman Vs. Superman topics, such as fan reaction to casting and when shooting will begin- gave something of an explanation of why we are all so confused over the news coming out of the pre-production. “What explanation could he have for Ben Affleck as Batman, or Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor?!” I hear you scream at your computer screen in a violent fit of rage. Well, because the Man of Steel sequel plans of “explode” the universes that we know and love, and create something new entirely. (more…)

Costume Designer Talks What Wonder Woman Might Wear

Thank you for clicking this article. I know that the subject of Gal Gadot playing Wonder Woman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel is a sensitive one, and is somehow more sensitive than when Ben Affleck was cast as Batman for the movie. Anyway, despite Gadot’s somewhat public appeal to convince over-anxious fanboys that she’s working hard to work out, I suspect she’s not going to win anyone over till the credits roll on Batman Vs Superman, or whatever it’s called.

But now time for a serious question: what is Wonder Woman going to wear? Oscar-nominated costume designer Michael Wilkinson (American Hustle) took time out of his Oscar weekend to talk about his work on the upcoming superhero movie, particularly in regard to Wonder Woman’s outfit. (more…)
