Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’s disappointing second week drop and negative reviews, along with the mixed general audience, is having a ripple effect over at Warner Bros. Studios. The sequel grossed a meager $51 million, a 69% drop from its opening weekend of $166 million. With those kind of numbers, and a slew of other tentpoles that are getting more positive word of mouth, it is highly unlikely that BvS will even reach the $1 billion mark.

The poor performance will now have WB mulling over a decision to release fewer films in a given year. More on the story below.

Jesse Eisenberg Unsure If Lex Luthor Will Be In ‘Justice League’

Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor In Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Justice League

Justice League: Part One will start production in just a few short weeks, and the film seems to be set on the idea that the villain will be Darkseid. This would be the first time that Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Flash, Aquaman, and possibly Green Lantern will all be together on screen. The film recently added J.K. Simmons to play Commissioner James Gordon, but there is no word yet if Jena Malone will return to reprise her role as Barbara Gordon – her role was ultimately cut from the theatrical version of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice and saved for the Ultimate Edition cut. However, it appears that one person who will not be returning is one of Superman’s greatest villains.

Jesse Eisenberg who played Lex Luthor in BvS has made a few comments about his supervillain role and his future in the DCEU. More on the story below.

Turns out Batman v Superman was just the beginning of the DC universe’s superhero brawling. While Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill kept their battle confined to the big screen, several other actors associated with the famed comic brand got bloody and bruised today. At an early screening in Hollywood for the blockbuster hit, critics were shocked to witness a melee between TV’s Flash Grant Gustin and DCU Flash-to-be Ezra Miller.

NYCC 2015: Kevin Smith

The critics and audience have spoken, and while the former didn’t like it as much as the latter, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was the number one film at the box office. This wouldn’t be the first time that there was a huge disparity between audiences and critics, and it won’t be the last. You’ve already seen our review of the film. And now celebrities are voicing their opinions on it. But one of them may come as a huge surprise.

Following his hosting duties on the DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League special on The CW with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, Kevin Smith has expressed some of his disappointment in BvS, saying that it lacked joy and that there is a “fundamental lack of understanding of what those characters are about.” See what else he had to say below.

‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Deleted Scene: Lex Luthor Meets The Devil

Batman v Superman Jesse Eisenberg Lex Luthor

As big a film as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is, there is bound to be a plethora of deleted scenes that didn’t make the cut. Whether or not these scenes could have helped with the missing context and plot points remains to be seen. Still, the fans have spoken, and it is the number one film at the box office, proving that it is indeed critic-proof. Fans are just itching to see what the deleted scenes are when the Ultimate Edition is released later this year. And now WB has already started their marketing campaign for the Ultimate Edition by releasing a scene that never made it into the theatrical cut.

Warning, it does dive into spoiler territory, so if you haven’t seen the film yet, then I suggest you turn back now.

This will be your final warning.

Michael Shannon as General Zod Batman v Superman

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice hit theaters this past weekend, and so far we’ve posted two reviews that did not speak favorably about the film. Zack Snyder‘s follow-up to Man of Steel currently has an astonishing 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, while the audience score stands at 73%. And let’s not forget that Sad Affleck meme. Looks like Snyder has successfully created yet another polarizing film where the apologists will be working all hours of the night to convince you that this is the best movie, even better than anything Marvel could come up with.

“What have you done?”

You know those combination Pizza Hut/Taco Bell fast food places where you can get a Pepperoni Lover’s® Personal Pan Pizza and a Doritos® Cheesy Gordita Crunch with a Mountain Dew Baja Blast®? Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is kind of like that, except the pizza is a soggy, overloaded sadness pie and the Cheesy Gordita Crunch is deep-fried in sweat and dread. So, your standard Taco Bell experience I guess.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, Watchmen), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is both deadly serious and aggressively silly. It’s a heavy-handed treatise on post-9/11 America written on a Quesalupa wrapper; a soliloquy on sacrificing freedoms for the illusion of security, delivered by a GameStop manager between trade-ins of LEGO Batman 3.

Don’t get me wrong: A movie about the ideological divide between Batman and Superman could be compelling, but that isn’t this movie. There are no heroes in this movie, only violent psychopaths trying to one-up each other in the “right-wing nutjob” department. This isn’t a battle of ideologies; it’s a war for bragging rights. These guys aren’t fighting for justice – they’re gunning for the highest body count.

Ben Affleck in Hollywoodland

Most people are aware that Ben Affleck makes his debut as Batman this week with the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and that it’s the second time the actor has played a superhero after his appearance as Daredevil in the 2003 movie adaptation of the same name.

But what some people don’t know, or have forgotten, is that Affleck also played Superman once upon a time in 2006’s Hollywoodland. OK so it wasn’t actually Superman he was playing but actor George Reeves, who played the character in the ’50s television series The Adventures of Superman, but still!

Using shots from both movies, someone has made a short trailer for a new Batman v Superman in which Affleck plays both the title roles. This was something that needed to happen, and the internet didn’t let us down. You can check out the video below.

Regardless of the success of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Warner Bros will proceed with their DC Cinematic Universe as planned. As such, they have announced that they will begin filming Justice League Part I in April in England and Iceland. Making these sorts of announcements isn’t entirely new, it’s almost commonplace. Zack Snyder will return to directing the DC Comics ensemble film, which has yet to reveal why the heroes must unite.

However, the timing of the announcement comes into question, as rumors that test audiences aren’t responding to the film as well to Dawn of Justice as WB would have hoped. More on the story below.
