Last year, it was revealed that Henry Cavill did his screen test for Superman in Christopher Reeve’s legendary costume from the monumental 1978 film. Now, Zack Snyder has shared another picture from that screen test, one that he says convinced Warner Bros. that Cavill was the man for the red trunks.
As different as Justice League and Crisis on Earth-X are in shape and style, they’re both trying to tell similar stories. It’s just that Crisis tells that story much, much better. As dire as the DCEU may seem right now, not all hope is lost. Warner Bros.’ film division just needs to pay attention to what their…
In the DC Cinematic Universe, before there was Batman, Wonder Woman, a Suicide Squad, or a Justice League, there was Superman. And now even he admits that mistakes have been made with the current slate of DC films.
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…
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.
Teen Titans Go is not the follow-up to the classic animated series that many desperately wish it would be, but it’s probably the DC property that loves poking fun at the wider DC world the most. And when it does, it’s... (puts fingertips to mouth, makes kissing noise) exquisite.
Last week, the news came out that Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) would direct a Justice League Dark movie, with a script from Guillermo del Toro, who would be sticking around to produce. All of that sounds like great news, but there’s just one issue: the looming presence of Warner Bros. over it all.
When Clark Kent joined the Daily Planet at the end of Man of Steel, it was obvious there was more to come. However, that ended up being Batman v Superman followed by Justice League, two team-up movies that have the iconic hero as a supporting player. That’ll change very soon.
With the release of Suicide Squad, chapter three of the DC Extended Universe is now in the books. We now have another piece to the puzzle that started with Man of Steel, continued in Batman v Superman, and will go on next year in Wonder Woman and Justice League. Here are the biggest changes that Suicide Squad has made…
The citywide rampage at the end of Man of Steel is one of the most talked-about scenes of the past decade. For some, it’s a heroic feat of wonder where good triumphed over evil. For others, it was unnecessary carnage and chaos for the sake of letting Zack Snyder blow up a city and making Superman neck-snap a dude.
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.
From the beginning, Supergirl has been a flawed show with a lot of heart. The “problem of the week” storytelling has occasionally fallen a little flat, but the characters have gotten sharper and sharper. But last night’s episode, “Manhunter,” proved Supergirl has become essential viewing.
Despite being on television continuously from 1988 to 2010, Superman has only had two interpretations on the big screen in the past 40 years: Richard Donner’s Silver Age-inspired fella who eradicates memories with a kiss, and Zack Snyder’s Superman. The latter version is back in a couple days, facing off against…
Film editor Miguel Branco has gone and taken most of the films adapted from DC Comic properties, and it makes them all look pretty good together, even if they’re not part of the same cinematic universe.
Every cinematic blockbuster is accompanied by a massive publicity campaign that carpet bombs the public with trailers, trailers for trailers, TV spots, more trailers and exclusive glimpses to make sure that it’s a huge hit on opening weekend.
We’re only weeks away from the premiere of Batman v Superman. And it remains to be seen if that movie will retroactively justify some of the most widely-hated choices in Man of Steel. Based on Zack Snyder’s comments over the last three years, we can guess that it won’t.
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.
There are not many people fond of the ending to Man of Steel—especially Superman’s infamous bout of neck-snapping—and there are many who eagerly await the day for Zack Snyder to apologize for the wanton destruction and general not-Superman-ness of it all. Today is not that day.
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.
