San Diego Comic-Con is fast approaching, and Warner Bros. is hoping to make a big statement in Hall H this year. In preparation for WB's big panel, Entertainment Weekly has published their 2015 Comic-Con Preview issue featuring Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman on the cover. In the article about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zack Snyder talks more about the inspiration for the film and the large task of building a universe. It all started with an off-handed remark from Snyder to Chris Nolan and David S. Goyer about a potential easter egg. "I said, 'What about at the end of Man of Steel we do a scene where there's a crate full of kryptonite delivered to Wayne Manor. Everyone was like... Okaay. Once you say it out loud it's a problem because you can't unsay it," says Snyder. And thus, Batman v Superman was born. amz asin="1563893428" size="small »

Normally, I'm not one to brag, but I would like to say right off the bat, I think I did pretty well with my must-see list last month. Of my five official picks -- Spy, Jurassic World, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Dope and Inside Out -- the closest I got to suggesting you see a movie people generally didn't like was Jurassic World, which has broken all sorts of box office records and sits at a "fresh" 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not that box office results or Rotten Tomatoes are the ultimate barometers of quality, but I have to base this off something, rightc Personally I didn't much care for the new Jurassic film aside from a few scenes of enormous spectacle, but others found plenty to like in it. I also ended up seeing Dope twice -- that one might be my favorite movie so far this »
