From “Aquaman” to “Wonder Woman 1984” to “Suicide Squad 2,” here's where every DC movie stands following the recent behind-the-scenes tumult.
Actor who played Perry White in "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman" will play Ant-Man ally Bill Foster in upcoming sequel.
“I can understand people saying ['Batman v Superman'] was too dark, or this was outside the tone of what I’m used to seeing with a Batman story," he says.
DC’s new superhero hit Wonder Woman is an origin story no doubt, but the backstory to Gal Gadot’s Amazonian warrior actually began to unfold more than a year earlier in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The folks behind DC Comics clearly did, and according to Wonder Woman star Ewen Bremner, they wasted no time in capturing the moment.
Some superhero sidekicks are so good that they need more screen time of their own, such as Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman, Idris Elba’s Heimdall, and more.
By Aaron Couch, The Hollywood Reporter Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is at the top of the pack for this year’s Saturn Awards Nominations, with the film bringing in 11 nominations.It was a good year for Disney in other ways as well, with Steven Spielberg’s The BFG tying Doctor Strange with 10 nominations and Captain America: Civil War recognized in eight categories. Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them brought in six nominations. ...
Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice dominated the 37th annual satirical awards show. The two films combined to “win” in every category except for worst supporting actress, which went to Kristen Wiig for her botoxed fashionista character in Zoolander No. 2.
One triumph of The Lego Batman Movie is its ability to simultaneously satirize and celebrate the legacy of the Dark Knight, a rich history spanning eight decades of comic books, TV shows, and, especially, films. From Will Arnett’s Christian Bale-inspired gravelly growl to callbacks to the 1940s serial, The Lego Batman Movie is overstuffed with cinematic references and inside jokes. The pilot immediately calls out the Joker, pointing out how his previous big-screen endeavors were thwarted by the Caped Crusaders, alluding to both 2008’s The Dark Knight and 1989’s Batman.
This year’s event features such nominees as “The Entire Cast of Once Respected Actors” from Collateral Beauty for worst screen combo and Zack Snyder‘s infamously poorly received superhero flick, Batman v Superman, up for seven different categories, including worst actor for stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill.
Pair vie for worst picture of 2016 with 'Dirty Grandpa,' 'Gods of Egypt,' 'Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party,' and 'Independence Day: Resurgence'
All the way back in 2013, there was a sleepy arthouse motion picture named Man of Steel. Among its players was actor Michael Shannon, who played the antagonist, Zod. When Shannon was interviewed by Fandango, they asked him if he had watched that film’s followup, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Remember that mid-credits scene in Suicide Squad? The frosty meeting between Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) ends with her handing over a folder full of metahuman files and him issuing a warning about her Task Force X, of which he definitely does not approve. “You should shut it down. My friends and I will do it for you.” And with that fans began drooling over the thought of a future film.
When Suicide Squad opened to huge box-office numbers but terrible reviews this past August, many assumed that the film’s hopelessly clumsy construction was the result of studio interference — and that, like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it would inevitably receive a longer, more coherently put-together second cut. At the time, director David Ayer definitively rejected that idea, telling Collider that while he had about 10 minutes of deleted scenes, “this cut of the movie is my cut, there’s no sort of parallel universe version of the movie, the released movie is my cut.”
Ben Affleck has taken a break from wearing his DC Comics cape and cowl to assume the role of a different kind of superhuman in The Accountant, Gavin O’Conner’s action-thriller about a man who, when not using his amazing intellect to crunch numbers, employs it for murder as a hired assassin. Speaking to Fox 5 DC, Affleck was asked for his own appraisal of the polarizing film, which grossed $863 million worldwide ($330 domestically) but was seen as something of a disappointment for not crossing the $1 billion threshold — a fate at least partially attributed to its negative critical reception (it currently stands at a lowly 27 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes). Some tones resonate with me that might not with you.” And as he says, Batman v Superman was deliberately based, mood-wise, on Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel, which itself was a far-from-cheery take on the iconic character.
Time Warner chairman-CEO Jeff Bewkes told investors Wednesday that there is “a little room for improvement” in the creative execution of Warner Bros.’ DC Comics movie slate. Bewkes said the studio has enlisted DC Comics entertainment president Geoff Johns and production guru Jon Berg to take a firm hand in guiding the upcoming DC releases.
In an interview with Deadline at the Venice Film Festival, 'Hacksaw Ridge' director expressed disgusted astonishment at the cost of modern superhero movies, and made it clear he wasn’t a fan of Zack Snyder's superhero showdown.
'Superman' actor Henry Cavill has revealed a photo teasing a black Superman suit he will presumably be donning for the upcoming Justice League film. And it hints at a major (but not unexpected) storyline from the comics.
Four months after its theatrical release — and two days before Comic-Con International — the DC Cinematic Universe-launching blockbuster, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, arrives on Blu-ray this week. Thirty one minutes more to be exact, which is the expanded running time of Zack Snyder’s R-rated cut. The new version — which has already been available on digital download — restores several elements missing from the theatrical cut, including some bruising, bloody action and an entire character played by Sucker Punch veteran, Jena Malone.
