“Tone” has been the magic word for the DC Universe since the release of Batman v Superman. Would future films get the right tone, giving audiences a sufficiently fun, superhero feeling to go along with the universe’s decidedly dark vision? Well, at CinemaCon 2017, that answer, maybe for the first time, was “Yes.”
A sequel to Man of Steel has long been expected, but there hasn’t been much news about it thus far. Last we heard, the DC film was in “active development,” but that was eight months ago. Now we know that Warner Bros. has its eye on a certain comic book director to bring Superman back to the big screen.
Today is Zack Snyder’s birthday, and he’s celebrating by being hard at work on Justice League. But he’s also celebrating by sharing the first, tiny look at Aquaman in action under the sea, and it looks pretty damn majestic.
Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, and Aquaman are finally side-by-side and in action in the latest image from Justice League. And since it’s a Zack Snyder movie, obviously it’s going to have a bunch of looming fog. Still, Snyder’s right to call them a bunch of badasses.
Some shots are just not important enough to bother the expensive actor with.for example, if all you need is a close-up of a body part that’s not the face, somebody standing around the set can step in. And sometimes that someone is the director.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may only be 27 percent “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, but I’d bet the percentage of people impressed by the visual effects is much higher.
The Justice League just officially gained a new adversary and a matriarch.
Zack Snyder has never made it a secret that he’s a Star Wars fan. During production on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he and Star Wars director J.J. Abrams would exchange fun photos on social media, mashing up the DC and Star Wars universes. But Snyder just took it to another level.
You can’t actually fault Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. for their out-of-the-box thinking when it comes to casting. And, when it came to Aquaman, it was such an unusual offer that it wasn’t even close to what Jason Momoa thought he was being called in for.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Steppenwolf, the character cut out of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, would be the main villain in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Now we know who is playing him.
Zack Snyder tweeted a new image of Wonder Woman today. You’d think with all that fire, there’d be more light so we could see more of her glory.
Justice League director Zack Snyder just posted a video to commemorate the final day of shooting the film in the UK. And while that’s all well and good, really, this video is just 90 seconds of exciting behind the scenes footage.
As you would if you were him, Zack Snyder posted a photo of himself on the Justice League set and wearing a Batman gauntlet to Twitter, causing nerds everywhere to scream, “WHAT’S ON HIS TABLET?” The answer is Deathstroke. Deathstroke is on his tablet.
Zack Snyder tweeted an image of what he called “the new Tactical Batsuit.” Love the goggles, Batman.
In their first interview since taking over the DC Films, the men put in charge of righting the ship after Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad admitted that the tone of the previous films has been wrong—and as a result, many changes are being made.
This photo might be Zack Snyder’s best work.
This is bizarre news. Not just because Wonder Woman has wrapped production and we’ve only just learned who wrote the script Patty Jenkins shot, but because what many assumed would be a DC movie out of the direct hands of Zack Snyder’s involvement is in fact very much connected with the filmmaker.
The funniest comment I read about Batman v Superman was when someone said they loved the scene in the movie when Wonder Woman sat down and watched the trailer for Justice League. Thanks to that scene—and a new behind-the-scenes featurette—we finally have a closer look at Aquaman and Cyborg.
Recently, io9 was on the set of Zack Snyder’s movie Justice League. The trip was coordinated to try and change perception after the polarizing response to Batman v Superman, but it also provided answers to some burning questions. Among them, why the heck did DC release a deleted scene online immediately after that…
Steven Spielberg confirms George Lucas’ involvement with Indiana Jones 5. Karl Urban really wants Dredd 2 to happen. Arrow casts a former Walking Dead star as a new villain. Plus, a Power Rangers teaser poster for a teaser poster, and more Spider-Man Homecoming casting. To me, my Spoilers!
