Did you like the superhero music in films like Batman, Batman Returns, Spider-Man, and Spider-Man 2? Well, that composer, Danny Elfman, has taken over the duties writing music for Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
We were all saddened to learn that Justice League director Zack Snyder and producer Deborah Snyder were stepping down from the film after a tragic death in their family. Joss Whedon agreed to take over the film—partially because, as it turns out, he was already working on it.
In one of the most heart-wrenching stories you’re likely to ever hear, director Zack Snyder has decided to step back from directing Justice League to be with his family after the tragic suicide of his 20-year-old daughter, Autumn. Joss Whedon will finish the film.
The thing about Zack Snyder is that he’s always completely into everything he puts on-screen. He has tons of enthusiasm for everything—including making sure that Henry Cavill snapped Michael Shannon’s neck in Man of Steel exactly right.
The Man of Steel Superman costume is a perfectly fine rendition of Superman’s classic look, if a little muted in color. But somewhere in an alternate world Henry Cavill took to the silver screen in the classic Superman costume of the original comics, just like Christoper Reeve, and I bet it looked as fantastic as this…
“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.
