8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Dceu Facts, we’ve got a look at two new promotional posters for Suicide Squad, the first of which sees Task Force X assembled, and the second focussing on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn; check them out here…

See Also: Theory: Enchantress is Suicide Squad’s main villain

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. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself? »

19 hours ago | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

People watch the Super Bowl for different reasons. Some actually watch the game. And some watch just to be social. But everyone watches for the ads. And whether they were previews of things to come or commercial tie-ins, there were plenty of commercials to thrill and inspire us this year. I’ve posted my six faves below and want to know your own. Leave your picks in the comments!

One-way Ticket To Metropolis, Please

One of the more creative tie-ins featured two ads, one with Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor from the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice shilling for Turkish Airlines. Hey, I’d book a seat to Gotham City if the Turks could get me there!

Harley Quinn Swings a Big Bat in New 'Suicide Squad' Posters

19 hours ago | 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. Then again, the news wasn't terribly surprising, since the studio released the second trailer just a few weeks ago, during a new special on The CW network. While we don't known when the third trailer will debut, Comic Book Movie has spotted two new posters, one of which features the entire team, and the second which focuses on Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn.

The all-star ensemble cast for Suicide Squad includes Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jared Leto (The Joker), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Karen Fukuhara (Katana) Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), and Jay Hernandez (El Diablo).

Superhero Showdown 2016 – Deadpool vs Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice vs Captain America: Civil War vs X-Men: Apocalypse vs Suicide Squad vs Doctor Strange

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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

23 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

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. These days, it almost feels like there’s an entire Comic-Con worth of »

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu made history at Saturday's DGA Awards by becoming the first-ever back-to-back winner. He was named Best Director for "The Revenant," having prevailed last year for "Birdman," which went on to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

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 »

‘Batman V Superman’ Super Bowl ads offer two destinations

8 February 2016 12:54 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Super Bowl ads for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice offered something a little different from the rest. Rather than just blowing us away with a high-octane commercial, Warner Bros. teamed up with the official airline partner for the upcoming superhero movie, Turkish Airlines, to bring us not one, but two infomercials offering up flights to both Gotham and Metropolis.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Watch: Two Turkish Airlines Ads for the Cities in 'Batman v Superman'

7 February 2016 10:51 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There's never been a better time to visit our great city." Whoa! Now these are cool TV ads, not just your conventional TV spots. Turkish Airlines has debuted two different 60-second TV ads that are also promoting Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman. Each spot is a travel ad for visiting either Gotham City, hosted by Wayne Enterprise CEO Bruce Wayne, played by Ben Affleck; or Metropolis, hosted by Lex Corp's CEO Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenberg. There is mention of Metropolis' "heroes" and they show Superman flying around. I just love the way these TV spots are presented, like they're naturally a part of the world, and an airline deal is totally normal. They run back-to-back on TV and are very effective. I want to visit Gotham! Here's the first Turkish Airlines TV spot for Batman v Superman featuring Gotham, found on YouTube: Here's the second Turkish Airlines »

Turkish Airlines Did a Batman v Superman Super Bowl Commercial, As If Bruce Wayne Deigns to Fly Commercial

7 February 2016 9:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Who better to shill for your luxury brand than comic-book heroes who teach kids to believe in abstract ideals? Yes, Turkish Airlines has ditched its former spokespeople, superhuman athletes Kobe and Messi, and hired new ones: superheroes Batman and Superman. In an ad that debuted during the Super Bowl, Batman (well, technically, Bruce Wayne) and Lex Luthor (complete with a sneer and a stress ball) give competing pitches for Gotham and Metropolis in the run-up to Batman v Superman. Turkish Airlines will, apparently, fly you to either, despite the fact that neither place exists. Ignore that, and focus on the way Ben Affleck curls his fingers around the handle of his espresso cup. It's so dainty. Don't you love it? »

Batman v Superman Turkish Airways Super Bowl Promos Offer Movie Sneak Peeks

7 February 2016 8:25 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Gotham City and Metropolis are on display in a pair of new Batman v Superman Turkish Airways promotional spots that debuted during Super Bowl 50 Sunday evening.

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice spots are designed to promote the fictional cities in a positive light, including touching upon their famous heroes. Potentially new footage lifted from the film is mixed with footage obviously shot exclusively for the Turkish Airways promos to create a presentation that feels lifted from our world.

Highlights in the Metropolis spot include multiple appearances by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and a first-look at the mogul's corporate headquarters from above. Superman makes a couple quick flyby's and the Daily Planet building is obvious, but Lex is big draw as far as the city of Metropolis is concerned.

The Gotham City spot wastes no time dropping a huge Easter Egg with a clear shot of Ace Chemicals, otherwise »

7 February 2016 5:10 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One last "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" trailer was approved for release last week and many were hoping it would premiere during Superbowl 50.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Partners With Turkish Airlines For New Promos

7 February 2016 3:08 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a bit of an unexpected move, Warner Bros. has teamed up with Turkish Airlines for some Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice marketing. It’s actually quite clever, too, as they’ve put together two quick promos which you can see below.

They don’t show off much from the film, but rather feature Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), respectively, as they promote both Gotham City and Metropolis.

The clips play as ads for the airline, announcing that they now fly to both of the aforementioned cities. Again, there’s not really much shown from the highly-anticipated flick itself, but fans will surely get a kick out of what’s been assembled here.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 25th and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne, among others.
