Oscar Race at the 2016 Halfway Mark: Diversity and Confusion

9 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2016 hits the halfway point, the Oscar race is even fuzzier than usual. Two things are clear: The studios are back-loading their awards hopefuls yet again, with launches at fall festivals and/or the fourth quarter; and there are more diverse films in the mix, with at least 16 potential biggies from filmmakers who are women, Asians, Latino-Hispanics, black and seniors (i.e., over 65).

In the past few years, “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Boyhood” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” had been widely screened and started industry buzz by late June. This year, there is a lot of industry enthusiasm for a few January-to-June titles such as “Zootopia,” “The Jungle Book” and “The Witch.” But best-pic contenders? Not so sure.

The festivals so far have offered possibilities like “Manchester by the Sea” and “Loving.” And some pundits anointed “The Birth of a Nation” as the Oscar front-runner last January (a mixed blessing for Fox Searchlight, »

Zack Snyder says Batman v Superman backlash has changed the tone of Justice League

15 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Vulture, Zack Snyder has revealed that he was taken aback by the mixed response to this year’s DC blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With many fans criticising both the film and the director for the direction he chose to take the fledgling DC Extended Universe, Snyder has admitted that the criticism levied towards the movie has led to a shift in tone for next year’s Justice League movie.

“When Batman v Superman came out, I was like, ‘Wow, okay, oof,’” said Snyder. “It did catch me off guard. I have had to, in my mind, make an adjustment. I do think that the tone of Justice League has changed because of what the fans have said… Listen, if it’s about putting more fun in the movie or embracing some of what I think is in all the characters inherently, this sort of larger-than-life, »

Eisenberg Confirms Return As Lex Luthor

22 June 2016 7:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following those set reports for Zack Snyder's "Justice League" that went up yesterday, a new quote has emerged from actor Jesse Eisenberg. Yesterday's reports noted that with everything a group of journalists saw on set, there was zero indication Eisenberg's Lex Luthor character from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" would return for the follow-up.

Now though, in a recent interview with The Shortlist, Eisenberg confirmed he is coming back but his scenes won't be done for a while yet:

"They are filming (Justice League) now, and I jump in from August. I loved the character and it was the most fun I've ever had at playing a role, and most challenging, in a great way, and most rewarding. I would love to play it for years.

The character I play is so unusual and complicated. As an actor he's everything you'd want to do. It's very exciting for me to play that role. »

‘Justice League’ will be just One movie – plus tons more news

21 June 2016 9:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Justice League

A whole bunch of press outlets were invited to the set of Justice League, the multi-superhero movie from DC and Warner Brothers which is now shooting in London. Quite a lot of news has come out of the visits, the big news-bites being that the film will stand-alone in just one part – not two. It will simply be called Justice League and will release next November. However, producer Deborah Snyder says that they are still very much on track for a second film on the date they have scheduled in 2019.

Snyder added: “All the films kind of fit in a timeline, but they’re independent films. You can see one and not need to see the other. They operate on their own. They all have their own tone and they deal with different characters. Yet they’re all in the same filmic universe and there is little »

Ben Affleck confirms he’s directing a Batman solo movie

21 June 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Justice League set reports springing up online, Slash Film has posted an interview with The Dark Knight himself Ben Affleck, during which he officially confirmed that he’s set to direct a solo Batman movie following the big DC team-up.

“Why I’m an executive producer [on Justice League] is that I’m directing one of the movies,” states Affleck. “So there’s sort of this cross-pollination of story and characters and I don’t want to give any of that stuff away, but it basically means that there are some things that might happen in my Batman that are affected by, I mean, here we are in the police station in Gotham City. There’s a potential that something like this might exist in that story. So it’s a creative way that DC came up with of kind of being a filmmaker-driven company and entity and also making sure that »

Justice League reveal coming on Tuesday, new villain rumours emerge

20 June 2016 3:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, several outlets were invited to the London set of Justice League, and it seems that Warner Bros. is set to pull back the curtain on its big DC ensemble on Tuesday morning, with various reports surfacing on Twitter to suggest a big reveal is incoming.

So, what could this reveal be? Well, the smart money would be on set reports from said outlets, but it’s also possible that Warner Bros. could give us the first official photo of the team all assembled, or perhaps even a teaser trailer, although that seems a little unlikely given that the movie isn’t out until November 2017. We will of course keep you posted…

While we await the reveal, some new villain rumours have popped up, although these come via Reddit (via MoviePilot) should be taken with a pinch of salt until we get something a little more concrete:
