Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Rumors of the tentatively titled The Batman having “serious script issues” were a cause for concern as it put a direct light on what many were fearing. That WB execs didn’t care about the quality of the script and were just happy that the film can make bank overseas. However, Bret Easton Ellis, who was the source of that rumor, backtracked on his comments and clarified that he was merely reporting on a second-hand rumor.

Moving on to much better news, Joe Manganiello, who will play Deathstroke, is talking a little bit about The Batman, its tone, and working with Ben Affleck. Check out what he had to say below.

Ben Affleck as Batman

News of DCEU films having major issues seems to be a recurring thing for Warner Bros., but despite those rumors, the films have been huge box office draws. So it doesn’t come as any surprise that there are new rumors that Ben Affleck‘s The Batman has issues of its own, despite the fact that the Batman v Superman star will direct and co-write the script with Geoff Johns. But there appears to be much more to it than that. It appears that Warner Bros. doesn’t seem to care at all. Check out the full story here below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

DCEU’s Batman standalone film may finally have a start date. So much of the film has been surrounded in secrecy that even its title, The Batman, isn’t even confirmed. We know that Ben Affleck will star, write, and direct the film. But aside from the two dates that Warner Bros. has reserved for two untitled DCEU films, it’s not clear when the film will hit theaters.

Now Joe Manganiello, who is set to play Deathstroke, says the film is expected to start shooting next year. Check out the full story below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Ben Affleck‘s standalone film is in pretty good hands, as not only is the actor reprising his role for the solo feature, he is also going to direct it using a script he co-wrote with Geoff Johns, who will also produce alongside Jon Berg. Though we know the major players and that the antagonist would be mercenary-for-hire Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello), the official title of the movie was largely unknown. Until now. During the press junket for The Accountant, Affleck said the title for his standalone Batman film would be The Batman.

More on the story below.

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.

Ben Affleck tweeted a short video today supposedly from the set of Justice League giving his followers a tantalizing glimpse of an iconic DC Comics character who, according to a source for Umberto Gonzalez’s original story at The Wrap, could be the main villain in the untitled standalone Batman movie Affleck will star in as well as co-write, produce, and direct. Check out the video below of the reveal of Deathstroke.

Aquaman

Suicide Squad is out and kicking butt at the box office despite withering reviews. Wonder Woman is in post-production and expected to be one of the big blockbusters of next summer. Justice League is still filming and hopes to pack theaters and reap riches the following November. Next on deck is Aquaman, which has yet to begin filming under the direction of James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7) but is locking up a fine cast headed by star Jason Momoa (who makes his screen debut as DC Comics’ Atlantean warrior king in Justice League).

Now it has been revealed which villain Aquaman will oppose in his first big screen solo adventure: Black Manta, one of Arthur Curry’s greatest foes. More below.

‘Suicide Squad’ Creator Believes Critics “Came Prepared To Hate” The Movie

Suicide Squad Margot Robbie

Three films into the DC Extended Universe and the cinematic comic book shared universe has built somewhat of a reputation for putting out bad movies, or movies that will be negatively criticized by critics. Some say these critics have been paid by Marvel Studios – if you believe in such a conspiracy – while others just want to believe that DCEU films get a bad rap. No matter how you slice it, we are still going to get films based on DC characters, at least until 2020. So hopefully by then Wonder Woman would have steered the DCEU ship into the right direction or at least save it from sinking itself.

It’s still hard to believe that Suicide Squad shares the same criticisms as the previous two DCEU films. But John Ostrander, the creator of the comic the movie is based on, believes that critics had it out for the film since the very beginning. More on the story below.

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.
