'Justice League' Roles Are Small in 'Batman v Superman' Says Snyder

20 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder spoke about why he prefers the DC Universe to the Marvel Cinematic Universe during an appearance on the Hall of Justice podcast. The filmmaker also had plenty more to say during his appearance, offering new details about both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, which he starts filming this spring. First, the director essentially confirmed rumors that the rest of the Justice League, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) will be featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, although he admitted that they have small roles.

"I really feel like this movie... I mean as far as the other Justice League characters go, it's very small roles. It's a whisper that they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her pretty well. But the movie is about Batman and Superman. »

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“As far as the other Justice League characters go, they play a very small role,” states Snyder. “It’s really just a whisper they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her really well. But really, the movie is about Batman and Superman. And we really take time with them and we really drill down on the why of them and what they stand for and their beliefs and them as characters. That’s pretty much the why of the movie. But again as I said, »

Zack Snyder on Man of Steel: “If you’re a comic book fan, you know that I didn’t change Superman”

5 February 2016 12:22 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact the movie is almost three years old, Zack Snyder is still coming under fire from some fans for his handling of Superman in the 2013 reboot Man of Steel.

Appearing on the Hall of Justice podcast to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Snyder has once again addressed complaints about the film, stating that comic book fans who know the true canon of the Man of Steel know he didn’t change Superman.

“I was pretty ready for it,” said Snyder with regards to the backlash. “I knew that we were really updating a beloved character. I don’t think ‘changing him’ — People are always like ‘you changed Superman.’ If you’re a comic book fan, you know that I didn’t change Superman. If you know the true canon, you know that I didn’t change Superman. If you’re a fan of the old movies, »

Scoot McNairy rumoured to be another villain in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

2 February 2016 12:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the film coming out in under two months, rumours and speculation are still running rampant for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, particularly when it comes to the bad guys. We’ve heard potential rumours of Bizarro showing up in the movie via some Lego sets (and a seemingly concrete confirmation) and there was a rumour a while back that villains such as KGBeast would show up at some point. We already know that Lex Luthor and Doomsday are in the anticipated team-up, but a new rumour suggests that another villain will be on the big screen.

It is still unknown who Scoot McNairy will be playing in the movie – with speculation saying he’s Jimmy Olsen, Metallo and even Green Lantern – but Latino-Review say they’ve got the inside scoop. According to the website, McNairy is playing an anonymous pawn in Lex Luthor’s plan, and was left »

Zack Snyder asked for Christopher Nolan’s permission to use The Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, “I think he found it a little bit hard”

28 January 2016 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy was highly praised upon its release, and is often hailed as the greatest achievement in big screen comic book adaptations. Someone who clearly agreed with this statement was Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder, who has admitted that he asked for Nolan’s permission to use the character in the upcoming movie.

“You tell me if you don’t want me to do it,” Snyder told Nolan, recalled in an interview with Empire. According to the director, there was a pause of silence before Nolan responded with, “Well, we don’t own these characters. When you’re done making Batman movies, someone else will [make them].”

“I think he found it a little bit hard,” Snyder admits. “I would feel the same way.”

Do you think Snyder needed to ask Nolan for permission to use Batman? Let us know in the comments below. »

Marvelous DA7E: TV as Comics and Questioning the Dawn of Justice

27 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Superhero television is legitimately back on the CW. Yes, Marvel’s Agent Carter is also back and doing okay in the excitement department (and meta references thanks to Howard Stark’s Kid Colt movie), and Supergirl is chugging along with her morality tales through the lens of a soap opera, but it’s the CW slate that is still the most risky and comic-book-like in its execution.

There are occasionally runs in print comics where a character or crossover event is enough up my alley that each week finds me buying multiple books to keep up. Thankfully (for my wallet) these events are fewer and less complex than they were back in the early ‘90s. It used to be I had to follow the Trial of Peter Parker through four different Spider-Man books for each installment, now I’m following nine part Secret Wars books, but mostly accepting whatever »

Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Gal Gadot reveal details on Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

26 January 2016 7:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than two months to go before its release, Empire has posted a detailed preview piece on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the latest issue of their magazine, during which director Zack Snyder, producer Deborah Snyder and star Gal Gadot have revealed some new details on Wonder Woman and her role in the film.

“It was incredibly organic how Wonder Woman came into the story,” states Zack Snyder. “The whole concept came of, ‘Let’s not save anything. Let’s try it all.’ Then Wonder Woman’s entrance made us realise we were much closer to the Justice League than we thought. We realised we were one movie away.”

Her sexuality is part of her power, but she is also a feminist icon,” adds Deborah Snyder. “Gender has been a hot topic, so it is very timely to bring her back. The way we have approached it, »
