Here’s a version of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice that I’d enjoy watching. Someone went and set footage from the Adam West, George Reeves and Lynda Carter Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman shows and it works wonderfully.
Rumors abound that DC Comics’ new “Rebirth” project will reboot its comics continuity yet again, and put an end to the “New 52" era that began in 2011. Although the current DC universe has often been a mess, it has also resulted in some fascinating new directions for its heroes. In case the end is nigh, we’ve looked…
Zach Snyder just dropped a new teaser for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice on Twitter, showing off a bit of new footage that we’ve seen hinted at in earlier teasers.
Wives and girlfriends of superheroes aren’t as hard-done-by as parents of superheros, but they’re a close second. Not only do they inevitably have a rough time, but everybody (including fans) hate them—which is no surprise. Each superhero girlfriend has a large number of factors working against her.
It sucks that Will Smith won’t be in the Independence Day sequel—but wait ‘til you hear the random explanation for his character being gone. Alas, this is standard practice. When stars decide not to come back, movies come up with rationales for writing them out, that go beyond “dog ate my homework.”
It’s been one hell of a year for DC Comics. Sure, they didn’t explode their comic book universe, but the heroes and villains of DC have gone through some big changes. Last week, we caught you up with what’s going on in Marvel’s “All-New” universe, and now, it’s time to catch you up on Superman and pals.
The star of any Batman movie isn’t the caped crusader, or the over-the-top villain he’s trying to defeat. It’s the Batmobile. The Dark Knight’s ride has seen countless design changes over the years, but it’s always been packed full of wonderful features that always make it the real star of the show.
So that happened. After years of intense secrecy around Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the latest trailer went from 0 to 100 in terms of spoilers. Not only did the trailer show the reveal of Wonder Woman, but it even introduced the film’s big bad guy: Doomsday. Here’s what we learned.
After all, Batman is never more dangerous than when he’s being underestimated. Spoilers ahead...
It’s hard not to read Supergirl in the context of our ongoing culture war over what kind of heroes we’re allowed to value. And no, I’m not referring to gender issues (although Supergirl has plenty to say about them too) but the all-important grimdark-vs-fun schism in hero narratives.
For over 70 years, Superman has hidden behind a single secret identity: Clark Kent. But now that the comics have re-exposed Clark Kent to the DC universe, the Man of Steel needs a new alter-ego. And so, for the first time in his history, Superman has a new secret persona.
Superman used to be really, really careful and considerate about the people he killed. In fact, you could probably count all the kills of Christopher Reeves-era Superman on one hand. He’s not like that anymore. Once you get to Man of Steel, you pretty much need every hand of every citizen in Metropolis to count out…
Sorry, Zack Snyder, your $225 million take on Krypton’s favorite son can’t hold a candle to this fun aerial footage of a Superman figure attached to Barry Craig’s flying Phantom 3 drone.
There have been hundreds of movies based on comic-books, going back to the earliest days of both media. And that cinematic flood has come with a certain amount of “holy crap, what was that” moments. Here are the 50 most shudder-inducing comic-book-movie moments... according to you. Check out our new video, created in…
Playing as Back to the Future’s Marty McFly while he battles Batman, or controlling Superman while he goes up against The Lord of the Ring’s Gandalf sounds pretty awesome. But how all those worlds and characters got so mixed up in Lego Dimensions is partly revealed in the game’s latest trailer.
Next year will be a pretty big year for DC, as Batman v Superman marks their first tentative foray into a new cinematic universe. That means merchandise out the wazoo—and not just movie stuff. DC collectibles would like to remind you where the movie all started, with two figures from The Dark Knight Returns.
Back in the ‘90s, Nicolas Cage was going to play Superman for Tim Burton. The film got canceled, however, and quickly became an Internet urban legend. Well now, a documentary on that film has revealed that Cage’s Superman actually would have looked shockingly great.
