David Goyer Addresses Controversial Man Of Steel Ending

Warner Bros. has put another Superman film on the back burner. The film has struggled to get even a sequel announcement and now that Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman, it seems very unlikely we will ever get a Man of Steel 2. The only possible person who could have prevented this all from happening was Mission: Impossible – Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie. The filmmaker had worked with Cavill on the latest Mission: Impossible film, and even talked to the actor about a possible sequel. However, nothing came of it.

But this wouldn’t be the first time that he has been approached to direct a DCEU film. A new interview also reveals that he was also in the mix to direct Green Lantern. More on the report below.

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.

WB Eyeing ‘Kingsman’s Matthew Vaughn To Direct ‘Man Of Steel 2’

David Goyer Addresses Controversial Man Of Steel Ending

It was just a few years ago that director Zack Snyder declared Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice a sequel to Man Of Steel. It may very well be, depending on how you look at it. But that hasn’t stopped the studio from actively looking into developing a direct sequel to the 2013 film. Snyder seems to be heading towards a break after Justice League, leaving the director’s chair vacant. There have been some rumblings that George Miller could step into Snyder’s place, given that his Mad Max: Fury Road was a critical and commercial hit. But that never came to fruition. However, it seems that the studio has their eyes set on a new director.

According to a new report, WB is eyeing X-Men: First Class and Kingsman: The Secret Service director Matthew Vaughn to helm Man Of Steel 2.

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.

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.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Movie Review

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 151 Minutes

“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.

Mark Millar Says Zack Snyder’s ‘Man Of Steel’ Is Too Violent

David Goyer Addresses Controversial Man Of Steel Ending

We all have our qualms about the final fight scene between Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod (Michael Shannon) in Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel. Some of us may like it, but the majority feels that it strayed too far away from what Superman stands for. Even the level of destruction that Metropolis went through seemed a bit over the top. Regardless if you think Supes killing Zod is okay, or that DC’s major city laid in ruins, like it or not, these events have helped shape the DCCU.

Now, one of comic books most infamous writers has come out to criticize Superman’s most recent origins story. Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service) has admitted that he isn’t a fan of Man of Steel, and has compared the film to Sylvester The Cat catching Speedy Gonzales. More on the story below.

David Goyer Defends Killing General Zod In ‘Man Of Steel’ (Again)

Michael Shannon as General Zod

At this point, one would think we have moved past the fact that Superman (Henry Cavill) killed General Zod (Michael Shannon) in Man of Steel, two years after the release of the film. So if you still harbor any ill-will over such a decision, then you are not alone. But director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David Goyer had to defend Supes killing Zod on numerous occasions, both citing that the hero was put in a difficult situation and forced to make an equally difficult decision. Whether or not you agree with this, it’s clear that Superman’s actions in Man of Steel have had a polarizing effect on DC fans.

But it appears that some still haven’t gotten over their non-killing hero killing someone in cold blood. So Goyer is once again defending Superman killing Zod, because the events leading up to that moment justify Superman’s actions and “that’s the right way to tell that story.” More on the story below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image 03

Though we are still about five months away from the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the hype machine continues to run on all cylinders. Recently, a viral marketing campaign gave us a glimpse into the world of LexCorp. Then, a new rumor popped up hinting that Wonder Woman would take place months before the events of Batman v Superman, and that Batman has been observing Wonder Woman for some time.

In the months leading up to the film’s debut, we are likely to get even more trailers, clips, and other promotional items that will crack the DC Cinematic Universe wide open. Now a new set of images have appeared online, and Henry Cavill is talking a little bit about the highly anticipated sequel, and even a “prologue.” More on the story below.
