David Goyer Addresses Controversial Man Of Steel Ending

Warner Brothers’ DCEU, or the DC Extended Universe, has had its share of problems. One of its major issues is that most of the films that have been released could never match the critical or commercial success of Marvel Studios releases.

The other is having an actor commit to playing their respective superheroes. In the latest shocking development, Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman. The move could give way to change how WB moves forward with its DC films. More on the story below.

Zack Snyder’s Creative Influence In DCEU To Be Significantly Reduced

Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder and his wife, producer Deborah Snyder, have been a part of the DCEU creative force since the very beginning. In fact, Zack Snyder has been a major presence having directed Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, some of Suicide Squad, and was an executive producer and/or writer for Wonder Woman and Aquaman. But it appears that the filmmaker’s creative input could be minimized significantly as the DCEU moves forward.

According to new reports, the Snyders “will no longer have anything like the level of creative influence that got the franchise to this point.” More on the story below.

DCEU: Geoff Johns and John Berg Bring Hope For WB’s DC Films

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

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%.

Scathing Open Letter To WB CEO Says ‘Wonder Woman’ Is A Mess

There are plenty of reasons why Warner Bros. should be happy with Suicide Squad‘s box office performance last week, but also plenty of reasons why they should be worried. Despite a $135 million weekend opening, the film saw a 40% drop off on Saturday and another 20% drop on Sunday. Experts are saying that while David Ayer‘s film will probably get the number one spot again, it most likely stands to see a 60% – 65% drop from last week, according to THR. As the numbers continue to decline at such an alarming rate, more reports are coming out about how studio interference may have done more harm than good and how some of the actors were displeased with the lack of screen time they got despite how much footage was shot.

It’s not something we haven’t seen before, especially when it comes to WB trying to figure out what to do with the DCEU. But as more and more reports come out, a scathing open letter written to CEO Kevin Tsujihara reveals that the future of the DCEU is in more trouble than we’d like to think. More on the story below.

Superman Lives! ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel Reportedly In Development At Warner Bros.

Man of Steel

Three years after it launched DC Comics’ cinematic universe with a $668 million global box office gross, the Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot Man of Steel is finally getting a standalone sequel, as an unnamed source familiar with the developing film at Warner Bros. told Umberto Gonzalez at The Wrap.

Plans for a sequel were changed not long after Man of Steel was released in the summer of 2013 when Snyder announced at that year’s San Diego Comic-Con that the follow-up would pit Superman against Batman. The end result, released this past March, was Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which also featured the first appearance of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and Cyborg.

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.

Video: How Many People Batman Killed In ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Of the many problems that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had the one that unphased me was the idea that Batman killed. The Dark Knight has been portrayed in the comics and animated series as a person who doesn’t kill, in fact at times he refuses to do so. Though there are some times where you can argue that he killed characters indirectly.

But when it comes to Batman (Ben Affleck) in Dawn of Justice, the Dark Knight seemed to have killed criminals with no restraint. This did not sit well with some fans, and director Zack Snyder made a few arguments that showed when and where Batman has killed in media. Now there is a new video that shows how many people Batman killed in the movie. So place your bets, and guess what the number is before checking out the video 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.
