Bruce Wayne Broods In New Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Image

11 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The final trailer for Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is expected to screen in theaters in front of Deadpool, and if that’s the case, it should be released online any day now. After all, the movie’s official Twitter account definitely seems to be gearing up for something, as they’ve released a stunning new promo image which can be seen below.

The shot features Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne standing in the ruins of the Wayne Financial Building, which was presumably destroyed during Superman’s battle with General Zod at the end of Man Of Steel. As we know, the billionaire vigilante blames Kal-El (Henry Cavill) for “bringing the war” to Earth and taking so many lives in Metropolis – but it may also be a bit more personal for Gotham’s golden boy. Did Bruce lose someone specific in the devastation, perhaps?

Bruce Wayne Mourns in Latest Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image

11 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

"They brought the war to us." That quote from the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer and TV spots has become an unofficial tag line for the upcoming DC Films release. It also perfectly sums up the latest image released by the Batman v Superman marketing team on social media Wednesday evening.

By "they" Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) is referring to Batman (Henry Cavill) and Zod, or more specifically the destruction and carnage caused by the Kryptonian battle across Manhattan in Man of Steel's final act. Bruce has no tolerance for the threat posed by aliens and he's taken what they're capable of as a personal attack.

As the image below clearly depicts, Wayne can be seen mourning in front of a crashed Wayne Financial sign for one of his buildings in Metropolis. The image evokes memories of 9/11 when the World Trade Center towers fell with steel bent »

10 February 2016 2:47 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

It's apocalypse time at the Indian box office, what with John Abraham's Rocky Handsome ready to take on Zack Synder's summer Hollywood extravaganza Batman Vs Superman Dawn Of Justice which features Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman.

Director Nishikant Kamat feels the action scenes in Rocky Handsome take the action genre in Bollywood to the next level. "We had to make sure the action scenes surpassed whatever John had done in his earlier films, or for that matter whatever was attempted in the action genre before this."

Kamat feels the stunts in Rocky Handsome are unique. "They are stylized yet raw and real. If you ask me for a reference it would have to be Transporters."

Kamat conducted a 3-week action workshop with John. "He has a very pumped-up gym-designed body. We needed John to be more agile. We prepared John for the role in Bangkok. »

It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity.

8 February 2016 12:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many fans were disappointed to hear that Warner Bros.' didn't buy any airtime for the Super Bowl this weekend, which meant that the studio would not be releasing new footage from Suicide Squad.

Gary Collinson on the 2016 superhero box office showdown…

We’re used to seeing three or four superhero movies each year, but 2016 sees Hollywood’s infatuation with costumed heroes making the jump to ludicrous speed with Six superhero movies set to grace the big screen (it would have been seven, had Fox been able to get its act together on Gambit). But which one will come out on top? Here’s our predictions for this year’s Superhero Showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

As always, we’ll get things underway with a quick recap of last year, which saw Marvel bringing the curtain down on Phase Two with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, and 20th Century Fox killing the Fantastic Four franchise again with the disasterous reboot from director Josh Trank.

Last Year’s Prediction – “While it should comfortably double the combined take of Ant-Man and The Fantastic Four, »

Ranking the Super Bowl 50 Movie Trailers

Most people thank (or blame) Ridley Scott's 1984 Macintosh ad for inventing the spectacle of the Super Bowl commercial, but the Independence Day spot that 20th Century Fox unleashed during the big game in 1996 was an equally significant milestone. Ever since 100 million Americans gawked at their televisions in awe as a massive alien spaceship blew up the White House, the football championship has become the ultimate launching pad for the next wave of spring and summer blockbusters.

Joker and Harley Quinn teased in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Super Bowl spot

8 February 2016 1:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

DC and Turkish Airlines had two Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice commercials placed in last night’s Superbowl, announcing the airline’s new routes to Metropolis and Gotham.

In the latter, amongst shots of Bruce Wayne discussing rebuilding his beloved Gotham after the events of Man of Steel, the cityscape twice shows a building called Ace Chemicals.

Ace Chemicals is known as one of The Joker’s most prominent origin stories (definitively told in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke). There, a stand-up comedian with no name is dressed up as the infamous gangster ‘Red Hood’. He falls into a vat of chemicals after a showdown with a young Batman, permanently bleaching his skin white, and birthing The Joker.

A very similar scene is shown in the most recent Suicide Squad trailer, where Dr. Harleen Quinzel (who later becomes The Joker’s lover and partner-in-crime Harley Quinn) is lifted »
