Justice League team first look DCEU

Warner Bros. released two more DC Extended Universe films this year — Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, both of which performed modestly at the box office but were poorly received by critics alike. But since Geoff Johns and Jon Berg came in as co-heads for the DCEU, Wonder Woman and Justice League have never looked more promising. The two upcoming films look to be straying away from the grim and dark tone set up with the previous movies, including the one that launched the current DCEU, Man of Steel. And now we are getting a better picture of how their influence will impact the future of the DCEU films. Check out what they had to say here below.

‘Wonder Woman’ & ‘The Flash’: Why We Should Still Have Faith In The DCEU

DCEU Wonder Woman header image

So far, Warner Bros.’ film entries in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) have come up a bit short of expectations, with both critics and audiences alike disappointed in the studio’s most recent offerings, Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad.

After these movies were critically panned and audiences were less than thrilled, fans and those involved in the filmmaking process were quick to defend the respective films citing that they wasn’t made for critics. An easy argument to make, especially when films like these get completely railroaded by critics. To be fair, the two did make a decent amount of cash at the box office, but they both also saw huge drops in their respective second week — Batman v Superman fell 69% in its second week, just a few percentage points more than Suicide Squad‘s 67%.

I’ve been looking over my list of new movies I have seen this year — and yes this includes older movies as well, but also movies that I have seen for the first time – to pick my favorites so far. So the easiest step of my process for this post is to first go through and get rid of the older movies and then get into the nitty gritty of compiling my top ten movies of 2016…so far.

Honest Trailer Batman v Superman

We’ve all been waiting for this one! To prep for the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in theaters months ago the gang at Screen Junkies did Honest Trailers for Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman and Superman directed by Richard Donner in 1978. Now the waiting is finally over as today, to celebrate the release of the Batman v Superman extended cut on Blu-ray, we finally get the BvS Honest Trailer. I wonder if fan response will be as divided as it was for the actual movie… nah, that’s literally impossible.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.

‘Batman v Superman’ Ultimate Edition Trailer Is Nothing Like Theatrical Cut

Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition

Given what our reviews have said about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, how will an extra 30 minutes help the Ultimate Edition? While there was a lot of missing information from the theatrical cut, a newly released trailer to promote the Blu-ray seems to fill in some of the plot holes giving us hope that maybe this was the film that was supposed to be released in the first place.

We’ve already seen one tiny glimpse of the Ultimate Edition which supposedly has an Easter Egg to the main villain in Justice League, but this trailer seems to focus more on filling in those gaps with never-before-seen footage. Check out the trailer below.

Jeremy Irons Agrees With Everyone That ‘Batman v Superman’ Was Overstuffed

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image 06

It’s hard to argue that Jeremy Irons was one of the best parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with him spending most of his time with another strong part of the film, Ben Affleck – who also co-wrote the script with fellow Argo writer Chris Terrio. With everything else pretty much a mess, it was hard to see the cast have to answer questions about the flaws and criticisms, especially Affleck who didn’t look all too pleased. But now that we are passed all of that and Justice League: Part One is starting to shoot, it is interesting to hear what the cast really has to say about the film.

Now Irons is opening up about how Batman v Superman deserves all the criticism it got after its release, but he remains optimistic about Justice League: Part One. More on the story below.

WB Hires Jon Berg, Geoff Johns To Oversee Future DC Movies

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

No matter how you look at it, Warner Bros.’ recent decisions have been a result of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s disappointing performance at the box office and less than warm critical reception. The studio will be releasing fewer films and focus on their blockbuster tentpoles. Creative differences forced Seth Grahame-Smith to leave The Flash, while reports said James Wan was “feeling tremendous amounts of trepidation” about directing Aquaman. Wan sent out a comforting tweet reassuring fans he was still on board the project.

Despite the rumors that if BvS didnt’ meet certain box office expectations, WB would have moved forward with other DCEU solo features, the studio marches on with the production of Justice League, and going as far as naming Ben Affleck as an executive producer. He continues “to be supportive of Snyder” and that he’ll work with Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio “to make the film the best it can be.”

But it appears as though the changes are not over, as WB is now going to mirror their competitors by creating a brain trust to oversee the DC Extended Universe. More on the story below.

‘Batman v Superman’ Had An Even Longer Runtime Than The Ultimate Edition

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Henry Cavill

It seems that Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice couldn’t get any longer than the theatrical cut. The film runs at two and a half hours, which is pretty long. A common criticism is that the film had pacing and editing problems with one too many plotholes. If anything, extending BvS would only add to those problems. So when it was announced that there was going to be a 3-hour Blu-ray Ultimate Edition, there was a chance that it could have solved some of those issues. Though that remains to be seen.

Now it appears that there is a much longer cut that no one has seen yet. A near four-hour version of the film that only BvS editor David Brenner knows about until now. Check out what he had to say here below.

‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Three-Hour Rated-R Cut May Get Theatrical Release

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Movie Review

It’s not easy to defend Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The vast majority of critics have panned the film and its box office numbers continue to drop at an alarming rate. Despite the fallout, Warner Bros. remains optimistic that the DC Extended Universe will be just as successful as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We know that we will get a three-hour rated-R Ultimate Edition Blu-ray in the very near future, and saw a small snippet of what was cut when a deleted scene was released by the studio.

However, it looks like we won’t have to wait very long to see that cut as there are reports that say the Ultimate Edition cut could appear in theaters as early as this summer. More on the story below.

Zack Snyder Actually Deleted A ‘Batman v Superman’ Scene Because It Was Too Dark

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Henry Cavill Wayne Manor

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the most divisive comic book films of the past decade. Traditionalists believe that director Zack Snyder has no understanding of Superman, while apologists have no trouble working overtime explaining that the new direction is great for the character. Most would agree that Ben Affleck was a fine Batman, but a lot of the issues are centered on the Man of Steel himself. The film has also been criticized for being overly dark and mopey.

Now it is being revealed that Snyder had actually cut out one scene from the film for being too dark. As if that could actually happen. But when you hear what scene he cut out, you may or may not agree with the decision. Check out what he had to say here below.
