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!
Last Friday, io9 was among a group of journalists invited to the London set of Justice League. There director Zack Snyder, star/executive producer Ben Affleck, and everyone involved all had one, simple message for us: We know. And we’re trying.
On the one hand, these titles come from the flimsiest of rumors. On the other, they are so bad I totally see the same marketing department that came up with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” coming up with these.
For anyone who missed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s coming home June 28 in a brand-new Ultimate Edition. As promised, it features an R-rated extended version of the film that runs 30 minutes longer and the first trailer for it is here, and its packed with unseen footage from the movie.
One of the biggest criticisms about how Warner Bros. was handling its DC properties was there wasn’t one person overseeing it all. It was a large group of people, too many cooks in the kitchen, and that diluted the overall vision. There was no equivalent of Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige. Well, DC Films has finally…
After Batman v Superman, we all pretty much knew who the villain of Justice League would be, right? Darkseid. Lex Luthor seemed to tease him in one of the film’s final images, talk about a being from beyond in his last speech, and we even see his symbol in Batman’s dream. But this may not be the case.
Yes. I know that sounds impossible, but I’ll explain. It’s from the end of the movie, so spoilers ahead.
Despite the abundance of Batman v Superman’s negative reviews and the film’s swift, severe drop in box office sales since its debut a week and a half ago (even with an utter lack of competition!), Warner Bros. executives seem adamant in learning absolutely nothing from the movie’s problems.
Seven years ago before he became the face of DC’s cinematic universe, Zack Snyder adapted one of DC’s most famous graphic novels, Watchmen. And critical reaction was divided. All these years later, however, the movie holds up for me, for one simple reason: It’s incredibly gorgeous.
In Batman v Superman, one of the many teases to the larger DC Universe is Bruce Wayne’s Batcave memorial to Robin. Logic, and those ominous laughs painted on the chest, suggest the Joker killed him. Now we have confirmation, as well as a few more details.
Given its massive box office, you likely saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this weekend. And whether you loved it or hated it, chances are you had some questions about the portion of the movie you managed to stay awake for. As always, our patented Spoiler FAQ has the answers you seek!
There’s a reason Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice went with that slightly wordy title. In addition to featuring a showdown between the two DC heavyweights, Zack Snyder’s film was largely created to help set up a bigger DC Extended Universe. How exactly did it do that? We’ve got you covered.
Three years ago, Superman got his own Christopher Nolan-influenced movie reboot, full of brooding portents and Kryptonian politics. Man of Steel was a pretty good movie, albeit one with serious flaws. Now the sequel is out, and it deals with a lot of the same ideas and themes. And fumbles them completely.
This week brings the latest Zack Snyder opus to the big screen, which led to the news that Snyder really wants to make Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead into a movie, which led all of us to talk about the last time Snyder put his id on rampant display: Sucker Punch.
Batman v Superman is already overstuffed with characters. Currently, it’s got everyone from Man of Steel, Batman, Alfred, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, Aquaman, the Flash... and originally there were going to be even more.
Some of the biggest questions about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have to do with the shared universe it sets in motion. How will it affect future DC Comics movies, and who is steering the ship? The film’s director, Zack Snyder, explained all that and more at a press conference today.
