If you missed the foreshadowing in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice then you weren’t really paying attention because they were laying it on a little thick. Okay, a lot thick. A lot of that was for the benefit of the upcoming Justice League – Part One, setting up a bad guy so big that it will require the epic team up of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash. The assumption has been that said villain was Darkseid, ruler of the war world Apokolips, but what if it isn’t? What if the villain teased in BvS is a warm-up act for Darkseid? (more…)
If you were wondering if Zack Snyder‘s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was trying to squeeze years of setup work for a DC Cinematic Universe into one film.. you’d be right, but perhaps we won’t see everything in this first film. There is the full on Justice League movie to think about. Justice League: Part One is due November 17, 2017, and a just released image from BVSDOJ has let the Big-Villain-In-Justice-League cat out of the bag.

The DC Comics and Warner Bros. associate may be Marvel’s biggest fans. Marvel paved the way for all comic book movies to take chances and bank on nerd love for movie tickets. But it didn’t stop there. DC is far behind Marvel in the cinematic game and just might bite their style in various respects. When Marvel’s ‘Age Of Ultron’ was announced, the concept of a robotic sentient then rumored the film appearance of Brainiac, the DC equivalent bad guy. Both Ultron and Brainiac are either robots or androids bent on winning at all cost. It goes further. Marvel has been quietly building on their Thanos storyline for over a decade, but his DC doppelganger Darkseid could fit into DC’s upcoming slate of Justice League movies in the upcoming years. Everybody has an opinion about this, but James Gunn is famous, so he has the top quote. (more…)
Whether you like it or not, the world of Internet journalism is one that demands you stick your nose where it doesn’t rightly belong. After all, how are we going to learn about all those rumors and spoilers if someone doesn’t go out and gather the info? While this does lead to some degree of anger from spoiler-hating fans (myself included) and production companies in general (re: the “Star Wars Freakout” incident), it’s just a fact of the modern age. Now, some nosey journalist may have just stumbled upon some interesting information regarding the Warner Bros. casting of the Justice League film, including the main evil-bad-guy. Scroll on to see the three names he discovered. (more…)
With a lot riding on the finished film, it should come as little surprise that Warner Bros doesn’t want to leave anything to chance when it comes to the Justice League film? Still, is the studio willing to throw out the script and start again from scratch with just two-and-a-half years till the release date? Well the latest rumor de jour answers that question with a possible maybe.
Badass Digest is reporting from its sources that initial reaction to Will Beall‘s script was surprise. Surprise that it was so terrible. Credit Beall’s inexperience (he has one season on Castle and the script for Gangster Squad as his sole credits), or the pounding studio pressure and what’s sure to be unhelpful develop process for a film this big, and you might be able to see how this project’s gone off track. Indeed, those same sources are saying that the nature of the script is what’s keeping the film from signing a director, and considering the movie in question is Justice League, that fact is doubling surprising.
So what’s going to happen? Two options are apparent, option one: the studio can start again from scratch immediately and try to keep the film on target for a 2015 release date with a possible miss; or option two: it can push ahead with the current script, hopefully get a good re-write in the next couple of months and stay the course for 2015. I guess they could always call the whole thing off until they get their ducks in a row (or more of a row), but that depends on how stubborn Warners wants to be in making sure Marvel doesn’t stay too far ahead of them. I doubt they’ll want to let The Avengers 2 come and go without having their own super-team in the bullpen. But all this may also be predicated on the success of Man of Steel. If that flick tanks, all bets are off.
Beall’s script will have seen Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and The Flash team-up to protect the Earth against Darkseid. No word on what, if anything, of Beall’s draft will survive.
More news as it develops.
So, the Justice League movie. They don’t have a director, they don’t have a script, they don’t have any stars, but they have a release date, and now they have a villain too.
And could it be any more obvious…
Everybody needs a break sometime, from the Man of Steel to Stormtrooper TK-471. It takes a lot out of a clone to shoot so much and hit so little. So where should the overtaxed and over worked Superhero head for a relaxing vacation? There’s a whole galaxy out there to choose from. With so many choices it could all boil down to that properly placed travel ad or commercial.
