Since the announcement of a documentary following the development of the failed Justice League Mortal, we’ve started to see a lot more of what could have been. We’ve seen some concept art for Aquaman and Wonder Woman as well as a sculpture of Martian Manhunter and now we have a new set of storyboard art that sees the Man of Steel (D.J. Cotrona) take on Princess Diana of Themyscira (Megan Gale).
Check them out below:
So why is Superman fighting Wonder Woman? Well, in the movie The Last Son of Krypton would have had his mind taken over by Maxwell Lord (Jay Baruchel), which would have turned him against his team mates. However, it would have all ended up badly for Lord when Batman (Armie Hammer) steps in to snap his neck. Ouch.

Who loves Joe Dante? Trick question: Everyone does. The legendary director cut his teeth editing trailers for Roger Corman, before doing an excellent job at transitioning into a director himself, helming such classics as Piranha, Gremlins, The Howling, The Burbs and Matinee just to name a few. While Dante’s last offering, The Hole didn’t exactly connect with a lot of its audience (F that, I loved it), it looks like Joe’s back and better than ever with Burying The Ex, a film filled with a stunning young cast such as Like Crazy/Star Trek‘s Anton Yelchin, Texas Chainsaw 3D/True Detective‘s Alexandria D’Addario (Did I mention True Detectiiive?) and Ashley Greene (Twilight). Throw in some zombie gore, a few laughs to round it out, and from what the trailer gives, it looks like a fun time. Rlje/Image Entertainment is unleashing the film to VOD/iTunes beginning June 19th. »

George Miller is riding a wave of adulation right now thanks to the critical and commercial success of Mad Max: Fury Road, but eight years ago the filmmaker came this close to making a superhero movie that would've resulted in an entirely different DC Cinematic Universe.
Back in summer 2007 a script titled Justice League Mortal, by Michele and Kieran Mulroney, impressed Warner Bros bosses and the studio quickly enlisted Miller to make it a reality for a summer 2009 release. However, the movie - which was due to shoot in Australia - was plagued by behind-the-scenes issues that eventually led to the plug being pulled.

A new trailer for Joe Dante's zombie horror comedy Burying the Ex has hit the web, and it promises plenty of Dante's trademark mishmash of feel good comedy and gross out horror. As the man behind Gremlins, The 'Burbs and The Hole, Dante always has my attention, especially when he returns to his genre roots. From a script by Alan Trezza, Burying the Ex stars Anton Yelchin as Max, a nice guy eager to break up with his overbearing girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene) when fate intervenes and she gets hit by a bus. Weeks later he meets his dream girl Olivia (Alexandra Daddario, who is making a career out of playing dream girls), but everything goes to hell when Evelyn rises from the grave convinced she and Max are still an item. While the set up is strikingly similar to last year's lackluster Life After Beth, one look at »

"You died! I saw you die..." Gross. It has been some time since we've seen a new Joe Dante film (The Hole in 2009), but alas this new one doesn't look like it's anything worth rushing out to see. Rlje/Image Entertainment has debuted a trailer for Burying the Ex, the latest horror comedy from Joe Dante that premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year. Anton Yelchin stars as the man of interest, who loses one girlfriend in a bus accident, finds another, then encounters his old dead girlfriend back-from-the-dead to torment him. Ashley Greene & Alexandra Daddario co-star with Oliver Cooper. It's a concept we've seen a few times recently, so it's not that original, but there are a few eerily disgusting moments. Have fun! Here's the new official trailer for Joe Dante's Burying the Ex, in high def from Apple: It seemed like a great idea when Max, »

Jeremy Saulnier's Blue Ruin came to Cannes out of nowhere two years ago to announce the arrival of a new talent looking at film in a different way. He's back, now, channeling Sam Peckinpah with Green Room, a horror thriller that stars Patrick Stewart, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat and Anton Yelchin. For Yelchin, who stopped by Deadline's Cannes studio at Nikki Beach’s Le Petit Bar to run me through the project, playing a bass player in a punk band seemed like it might be… »
