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. ...
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.

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.
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.
Justice League, Part One no more. As has been rumored for some time, Zack Snyder’s follow-up to this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will get a name change before it hits theaters next year — kind of. Originally announced as Justice League, Part One, the actual title of the movie will be… Justice League.
The Suicide Squad just hit Hollywood. In advance of the anticipated summer movie, due out Aug. 5, Warner Bros. is displaying a wide selection of costumes and props featuring DC Comics’ off-kilter band of baddies for visitors who go on the studio tour. This week, Warners previewed the exhibit, which also includes artifacts from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in its museum. In the coming months, the studio will rotate in new pieces from upcoming DC-based films like Wonder Woman and Justice League, as well as its stable of TV shows, including Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl.
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is one of the brightest spots in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a dark superhero spectacle critics and audiences are otherwise split on. Before the Israeli actress lassoed the role though, there was a lengthy list of other lovely ladies in the mix to finally bring Wonder Woman to the big screen (Friday Night Lights’ Adrianne Palicki got the closest, playing the Amazonian in a failed 2011 TV pilot). Here’s a look at those would-be Wonder Women (with the help of some fan-made art).

Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg make a magnificent seven. With that in mind, director Zack Snyder says his upcoming Justice League team-up will pay homage to one of cinema’s all-time classics: Akira Kurosawa’s The Seven Samurai. Snyder’s Justice League, the sequel to his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set for November 2017, will be structured in similar fashion.
Ostensibly, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel. But, as the second half of the title suggests, the Zack Snyder-helmed superhero smackdown also serves as the launchpad for an interconnected series of DC Entertainment-based films, a slate that includes at least a dozen films over the next several years. BvS not only introduces Ben Affleck’s Batman into the same world as Henry Cavill’s Superman, but we also get a big dose of Gal Gadot’s mighty Wonder Woman and quick glimpses of Ezra Miller’s Flash, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Together, the quintet will dawn into the Justice League.
It may be men with capes who dominate the action in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but as a recent Fandango poll makes clear, it’s Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman who’s the main draw of Zack Snyder’s blockbuster superhero team-up. While BvS goes out of its way to introduce DC Comics’ famous Amazonian heroine – in order to help lay the foundation for an upcoming all-star Justice League film – Wonder Woman will get her own proper origin story June 23, 2017 courtesy of director Patty Jenkins (Monster). And by the looks of the latest picture released from the production, she’s going to be joined in that stand-alone saga by a trio of equally formidable females.
