After what feels like decades of anticipation, Zack Snyder’s Justice League is coming out next week. To get a refresher before seeing the film, there are two choices. First, you can read years of DC Comics, then rewatch Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Wonder Woman... or you could…

Batman v Superman may have only just come out, but Warner Bros is already teasing the release of its R-rated home edition.

Throughout its marketing campaign, Batman v Superman has focused on the fact that Batman and Superman are butting heads pretty much because Bruce Wayne has taken it upon himself to stop Superman before he becomes a threat to the world.

Lex Luthor is joining the Justice League in April — yes, seriously — along with Flash villain Captain Cold, Shazam, and maybe another surprise or two. Geoff Johns details the reasons for the changes, all of which sound genuinely interesting, in a lengthy article over at Newsarama.
I seem to recall in 2013 there was a big deal about Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah coinciding.

Every single new media outlet is completely sure that Breaking Bad villain Bryan Cranston is going to be Lex Luthor in the next Man of Steel. A new rumor says that he may have signed up to be Superman's archenemy "in anywhere between six and ten films."
