Justice League, good or bad, is going to be an absolutely monumental movie. This will be the first time in history that the seven members of the DC Comics superhero team will unite on screen in live-action together. For those who may be doing the math, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman makes six, but the would-be seventh member Green Lantern has not been anywhere in the marketing for the Justice League movie. However, it looks like a member of the Green Lantern Corps. may, in fact, be appearing, which will complete the lineup and "unite the seven."
Film reporter Umberto Gonzalez recently did a live Q&A on Periscope and was discussing all things related to the DC Extended Universe. During the course of the Q&A, the subject of Green Lantern came up and he prefaced that what he is hearing should be taken as rumor, »
The DC Extended Universe has seen better days. After the critical bashing received by both Batman V Superman, and Suicide Squad, rumours are now swirling that Ben Affleck is eager to step away from the clumsy comic book world. This comes after The Flash losing two separate directors in the space of a year, and recent reports that Wonder Woman is also in trouble.
This is all beginning to look like DC’s cinematic universe is crumbling under its own weight, before it has even gotten off the ground. In contrast to the immense excitement and success currently surrounding the Marvel cinematic universe, Warner Bros has a real problem on their hands. Here are five ways that the Dceu can be fixed, before it is broken beyond repair.

Back in April of last year it was announced that Zack Snyder’s frequent collaborator Larry Fong would not be behind the camera on Justice League due to a scheduling conflict with Kong: Skull Island, with Snyder then enlisting Game of Thrones cinematographer Fabian Wagner to shoot the DC team-up.
Posting on his Instagram page, Wagner has spoken briefly about the film, revealing that he took inspiration from Fong’s work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and judging by his comments, it seems we’ll be seeing a somewhat consistent look between the two movies.
“Last year I was fortunate enough to work with Zack Snyder on his new movie Justice League,” said Wagner. “I had always been a fan of his work and of his long time cinematographer Larry Fong. I tried to put my own stamp onto it but Larry’s dark and beautiful lighting was a huge source of inspiration. »

Not much is known about Nomis, the psychological thriller starring Henry Cavill (Justice League, Batman v Superman, Sand Castle), Ben Kingsley (The Jungle Book, Night at the Museum 3) and Alexandra Daddario (Baywatch, San Andreas), which is set to start shooting in Canada this month.
The movie is written and directed by David Raymond and produced by Enderby Entertainment. According to Raymond, the film is “about an American police force who trap an online predator, only to realize the depth of his crimes goes far beyond anything they had anticipated.” Two unofficial synopses of the movie popped up on IMDb last week and have now been confirmed by Enderby Entertainment in a tweet to a Henry Cavill fan site this morning.
Both work for us. Multiple versions out there. https://t.co/cPtA3v8gS2

If Empire’s March issue was reserved for Logan and Wolverine’s last hurrah, the outlet’s latest cover hails from the other end of the superhero spectrum. Replacing a haggard anti-hero with a graceful female warrior, a swan song with a bona fide origin story, Empire has now ushered Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman into the spotlight in time for its April issue – and it’s a doozy.
First spotted by Cbm, consider this an unofficial preview of Empire’s latest issue, given that it’s been uploaded by one subscriber who was fortunate enough to receive their copy ahead of schedule. The outlet is yet to release the official high-res version at the time of writing, but we’ll be sure to update this post if and when Empire lifts the lid on next month’s copy. »

While Justice League did have a presence at the San Diego Comic-Con last year in the form of a teaser/sizzle reel, we’re yet to get a full trailer for the DC blockbuster, which is set to open in November. However, director Zack Snyder has now revealed that the wait will not be much longer, with the information coming by way of Snyder’s Vero account (via Smtv’s Sean Murphy):

Warner Bros. has Wonder Woman set to arrive this summer, so presumably the focus for the studio’s marketing team will be on the Amazon Princess’ solo outing for the time being. That said, it would be a surprise if we still haven’t had the trailer before Wonder Woman opens in July.

The past few days have seen some very interesting reveals come our way courtesy of the New York Toy Fair, and now we have a detailed look at the Dark Knight's new Batmobile in Zack Snyder's Justice League. As you can see, it's not massively different from its predecessor, but a lot of significant changes have definitely been made to the overall design and weaponry. It also appears to be sporting a lot more in the way of armour and weaponry, something which makes a great deal of sense considering the fact that Batman will be fighting alongside the likes to Aquaman and The Flash against Steppenwolf and his powerful Parademons. Anyway, you can check out the full gallery of images over at CNET, but a selection are below. Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, »

The DC Extended Universe is soldiering on after a less than stellar year in 2016. Financially speaking, both Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad crushed it, but they seriously divided fans and were generally trashed by critics. Still, there are a lot of projects that the studio is still working on, one of which is the long-in-development Shazam movie. Now it looks like the movie may have finally found a director in the form of David F. Sandberg.
The Wrap is reporting that David F. Sandberg, who had a major breakout last year with his horror movie Lights Out, is in negotiations with the studio to helm Shazam!. Sandberg also has Annabelle 2 coming out this year and since both that movie and Lights Out were done for New Line, which is where Shazam is happening, it makes sense that they would turn to him. Not necessarily because »
While we continue to wait for the new trailer, director Zack Snyder has teased an action sequence from November’s Justice League movie, sharing a photo from the post-production studio featuring Ben Affleck’s Batman going up against some heavily armoured – and heavily armed – mystery villains.
And here’s a closer look at the scene in question…
So, who do you think those bad guys are? Let us know in the comments below…
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.

It is starting to feel like DC fans around the world are sort of tapping their watches and pointing at Warner Bros., wondering where the Justice League trailer is and when we can see it. A "sneak peek" was released over last summer at San Diego Comic-Con, which more or less served as the first trailer for the movie, but a lot has happened since then and fans want to see some Justice League footage. While it may not be footage, director Zack Snyder has shared a new photo online that not only gives an idea of where they are at in the process, but it also shows Ben Affleck's Batman in action.
The photo, which showed up on Reddit but is currently absent from any of Zack Snyder's social media accounts, gives a bit of a window into the post-production process for Justice League. It appears that »
While it wasn't exactly a secret, we've finally received more confirmation that Henry Cavill's Superman will indeed make an appearance in Zack Snyder's Justice League this fall. Now, as for how big of an appearance, that's yet-to-be-seen. Yahoo! Movies have debuted six first look images at DC Collectibles' upcoming line of premium, screen-accurate 12-inch statues, which are based on the upcoming movie lineup. That lineup features Cavill as the Man of Steel, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. The meticulously detailed statues offer amazing new looks at each individual costume and reveal that Superman will wear his red-and-blue suit at some point during the movie. It's also been heavily rumored that he'll possibly sport a black-and-silver costume as well, but since we're still a long ways away from November, it'll probably »

The Berlin International Film Festival is now well underway and deals are being made all over the place. We’ve already told you about new projects for the likes of Tom Hanks, Oscar Isaac and Henry Cavill, among others, and now, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star Dave Bautista has found his next film.
Deadline reports that the wrestler turned actor will board The Ink Factory’s Hotel Artemis, where he’ll star alongside Jodie Foster in the Drew Pearce-directed pic. From what we understand, it’s a future-set story, one that sees “Foster as a nurse who runs an underground hospital for Los Angeles’ most sinister criminals and finds that one of her patients is actually there to assassinate another.”
On casting Bautista, Pearce said the following earlier today:
“He’s a force to be reckoned with — a powerful presence who’s equal parts strength and soulfulness. »

During an interview with the Los Angeles Times to promote his new movie John Wick: Chapter 2, Laurence Fishburne has revealed that he won’t be reprising his Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice role as Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White in this November’s Justice League.
“They asked me to come for a day, but I couldn’t work it out, schedule-wise,” said Fishburne. “And really, what do you need the newspaperman in Justice League for? You want to see the Flash. You want to see Aquaman. You want to see Wonder Woman. You want to see the Lantern. We’ve been waiting 35 years for these [characters] to show up on the screen. What were they doing over there? Marvel has been kicking their ass. This is the comic-book geek in me, who has a collection of comic books. I’ve been waiting to see these people on-screen forever. »

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may have come in for heavy criticism in some quarters, it’s fair to say that the big warehouse showdown between The Dark Knight and Anatoli Knyazev’s goons is one of – if not the – best Batman fight scenes ever put to film, and thanks to Heroic Hollywood, we’ve got a look at some behind the scenes images from the production of said sequence…
“The script was still being worked on when we came in, and that’s generally earlier than a lot of directors have us come in, but Zack likes to really let it flow from early R&D,” said second unit director Damon Caro with regards to the conception and construction of the scene. “Half the time it’s like, ‘try this, try that,’ because there are a »

The Berlin Film Festival has only just kicked off, but already it’s proven to be tremendously busy, with numerous high profile projects coming together and many actors and actresses finding their next roles. Everyone from Jake Gyllenhaal to Tom Hanks have been making headlines over in Germany and now, we’re learning of three more talented individuals who’ve found a new project to sink their teeth into.
That’s because David Raymond’s Nomis has picked up Justice League‘s Henry Cavill, Ben Kingsley and Alexandra Daddario. The psychological thriller will be arriving courtesy of Fortitude International as it looks for buyers in Berlin this week. Written by Raymond, who will also produce, the story follows “an American police force who trap an online predator, only to realize the depth of his crimes goes far beyond anything they had anticipated.” No word yet on who’s stepping into which roles, »

As anticipation builds for the new trailer, director Zack Snyder has been chatting to Total Film about the upcoming DC blockbuster Justice League (via Cbm), and how fun it was to explore the character dynamics of the superhero team.
“One of the more rewarding aspects of creating Justice League was having fun exploring the dynamic between this diverse group of larger-than-life characters with disparate backgrounds, ethics, and unique perspectives all trying to come together and work as a team,” said Snyder. “It not only offers an opportunity for great drama and complex relationships, but it also often results in great fun. It’s an exciting concept to explore and it only gets better when you add the component of our incredibly talented cast – their chemistry really adds to that dynamic.”
