'Man of Steel' Ending Was Right Choice Says Zack Snyder

4 July 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Man of Steel had an epic finale that saw most of Metropolis destroyed. This certainly rankled fans, and has been a point of controversy ever since the 2013 movie came out. It's presumed that a lot of innocent bystanders died in the climactic fight between Superman and Zod. But director Zack Snyder doesn't quite see eye to eye with his critics. He believes this ending was very necessary, and it will carry over into next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Talking with EW, he goes onto explain how the brawl sets the next phase of the DC Comics Cinematic Universe in motion. About the backlash, Zack Snyder has this to say.

"I was surprised because that's the thesis of Superman for me, that you can't just have superheroes knock around and have there be no consequences."

Ben Affleck Confirms 'Superman' Destroyed One Of 'Bruce Wayne''s Buildings In Man Of Steel

4 July 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Anyone else sick of hearing people complain about that epic final battle in Man of Steel? It seems Zack Snyder is based on a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, and he's now further expanded on the that point by discussing why he believes it was wholly necessary to show a large amount of death and destructoon when Superman went to war with General Zod with the fate of Earth hanging in the balance. "There are other superhero movies where they joke about how basically no one’s getting hurt,. That’s not us. What is that message? That’s it’s okay that there’s this massive destruction with zero consequence for anyone? That’s what Watchmen was about in a lot of ways too. There was a scene, that scene where Dan and Laurie get mugged. They beat up the criminals. I was like the first guy, I want »

Best TV Episodes of 2015 (So Far): Part Three

27 June 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Check out Part 1 and Part 2 of the Best TV Episodes of 2015 (So Far)

Justified, “The Promise”

Written by Graham Yost & Fred Golan & Dave Andron & Benjamin Cavell

Directed by Adam Arkin

Aired April 14th, 2015 on FX

Over the course of its run, Justified established itself as a top tier drama, which meant that expectations were high going into its sixth and final season. The series finale, however, delivered on several fronts, elevating itself into not only a highlight of the show, but a highlight of the television year as a whole to date. The deft manner in which the episode balances its numerous characters is one of the key ways in which it distinguishes itself. While the finale’s most important showdown is the one between Boyd and Raylan, the writers make sure to give the season’s antagonist Avery Markham his due as well, not diminishing the danger he posed by dismissing him easily. »

'Watchmen' Star Confirms 'Batman v Superman' Role?

25 June 2015 12:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in August of last year, when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was still shooting exteriors on the streets of Detroit, a painting was spotted that looked suspiciously like Watchmen star Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Was he reuniting with his director Zack Snyder for a cameo? While the actor has never been confirmed for the movie, many believe he is playing Bruce Wayne's dad Thomas Wayne.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host asked if this was the case. While Jeffrey Dean Morgan doesn't come right out and confirm that he has a role in the superhero movie, his smile all but gives it away. He goes onto say that the painting in question does look just like him.

"Gosh dang, it sure looks like me, doesn't it? I think you have to watch the movie to see if that's me. But that looks a lot like me, man! »

Jeffrey Dean Morgan teases a small but iconic Batman v Superman role

25 June 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jeffrey Dean Morgan has teased that he could have a role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The Watchmen actor looks to be reteaming with Zack Snyder to play Thomas Wayne in the Man of Steel follow-up.

In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! the host pointed out a portrait bearing a striking likeness to Morgan on the set of the DC Comics/Warner Bros movie.

"Goddang it sure looks like me, doesn't it?" said Morgan.

"I think you probably have to go watch the movie to see if that's me, but that looks a lot like me, man."

The portrait is presumably that of Bruce Wayne's father, whose murder along with that of his wife Martha eventually led to his son becoming Batman.

Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane and Jeremy Irons will star in the movie.

Exclusive Kingsman: The Secret Service Blu-ray Clip Celebrates Artist Dave Gibbons

8 June 2015 9:06 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Today, we’re pleased to debut a Kingsman: The Secret Service Blu-ray clip from the 90-minute behind-the-scenes featurette for the movie. In the clip, writer/director Matthew Vaughn and author Mark Millar exult the comic’s artist, Dave Gibbons. Gibbons is a comic book legend, and will likely be best remembered for his phenomenal work on Watchmen. However, he’s been working in the industry for decades, and Millar recalls a nice story about how he came to realize his dream of working with the renowned artist. This clip may not have much to do with the movie, but I like it when featurettes expand beyond the film and go into interesting bits such as this. Check out the Kingsman: The Secret Service Blu-ray clip below. The film will be available to own on Blu-ray and DVD on June 9th. [complextv contentid="JnYmxqdTrL8zzBJ2SGtCEEmHSr6rzsvI" sitename="collider" playerid="26aa5f02d93f4c05a4546f6d5ecb59b7" adsetid="67a3ff9d3a842ae818bb9de1badc5b0" width="600" height="360" keywords=""]   For more on Kingsman, check out our interviews below: Matthew Vaughn »

Interview with ‘Material’ Writer Ales Kot

8 June 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ales Kot is one of the freshest, most cerebral voices in comics. He cut his teeth on DC Comics’ Suicide Squad with a run focused on the demented serial killer Jim Gordon Jr. before taking his talents to Marvel. Kot wrote two of their quirkiest titles, namely, Secret Avengers, which made supervillain Modok a full-fledged Avenger and had a good mix of references to Jorge Luis Borges and Nick Fury Jr. and Agent Coulson having existential crises in the middle of space. Speaking of space, he has also written Bucky Barnes, Winter Soldier, which followed the titular character’s trippy adventures on distant planets depicted in the style of Heavy Metal by artist Marco Rudy.

But Kot has also worked on creator owned comics as part of the Image Comics renaissance. Zero is an espionage series created by him and his Secret Avengers collaborator Michael Walsh and has found critical and commercial success. »

“Watchmen” Described for Screen Reader Users

7 June 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

During a 1940’s newspaper strike, New York City mayor Fiorello Laguardia would read the comics over the radio so kids wouldn’t miss out on the funnies. In a similar vein, Liana Kerr is reading Watchmen for people who can’t see it:

Watchmen is a classic comic book written by Alan Moore and drawn by Dave Gibbons, published in 1986. It’s set in an alternate history where the existence of superheroes changed American politics, culture and everyday life. I’ve described it panel-by-panel for blind and low-vision readers, including the supplementary material at the end of each chapter. Text within asterisks indicates bold text.

Watchmen Video Lists Every Difference Between The Comic And The Movie

4 June 2015 2:54 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Watchmen not only propelled Zack Snyder into the blockbuster stratosphere, but it is also probably the most divisive comic book adaptation in movie history. When you consider just how damn popular and influential Alan Moore.s original comic series is to this day, that was always going to be the case. But where do Moore.s book and Snyder.s interpretation split off in completely different directions? Here.s a handy video guide to show us. Kudos to CineFix for creating this impressive and comprehensive breakdown of both the seminal comic book and the divisive blockbuster. They also deserve praise for not just spending the entire clip completely lampooning and attacking Zack Snyder for his alterations, and for not fantasising about Terry Gilliam.s long touted version that never made it to screen, but has always been cited in arguments against Snyder.  But where do Zack Snyder.s Watchmen and »

‘Providence’ #1 one of the best examples of smart, layered comic writing this year

29 May 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Providence #1

Writer – Alan Moore

Art – Jacen Burrows

Colors – Juan Rodriguez

Letters – Kurt Hathaway

Publisher – Avatar Press

On its surface, the story of Providence is the story of two genre fiction visionaries who in practice couldn’t be more dissimilar. One died a good decade-plus before the other was born. One wrote mostly prose fiction and probably would have despised the funny books that are the other’s stock-in-trade. One deals mostly in existential dread while the other routinely deals in sex, love, heartbreak, death, and all the messy bits of individual human existence. But Providence aims to find some middle ground between the two.

It’s appropriate that Providence, the long-awaited Lovecraft deconstruction comic miniseries, should come this year, the 125th anniversary of Lovecraft’s birth. No matter what Lovecraft’s place among the pantheon of great horror-fantasy writers might be, it’s a matter of course that modern critical »

Comic book movies, and the exposition dump

28 May 2015 10:06 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Comic book films are full of intricate storytelling. But sometimes, even Batman, Spider-Man & Iron Man need Basil Exposition's help...

This article contains spoilers for Avengers: Age Of Ultron and various other comic book movies - if you're not entirely up to date, then watch out as you read on...

As you know, we're enjoying a golden age of comic book movies and there are around 30 more of them pencilled in before the decade is out. Since Marvel Studios started experimenting with continuity between movies and whole franchises, there's been criticism of its use of MacGuffins and plot exposition - it provokes nightmares of long-winded recaps of already established stuff, starting with dreaded phrases like 'as you know'. And who'd start anything with those three words?

It's not that we're mistaking the use of exposition for poor storytelling - it's a super-broad term to describe something that's kind of essential to most stories. »

Carla Gugino Has Her Eyes Set On A DC Movie Role

28 May 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The cast and crew of new disaster flick San Andreas seem mighty interested in the burgeoning DC Cinematic Universe. Dwayne Johnson is already signed on to star as Black Adam in Shazam, director Brad Peyton has expressed his interest in helming the next Superman movie and now, Carla Gugino has tossed her hat into the ring.

Gugino has technically already appeared in a DC film, as she voiced Kryptonian artificial intelligence Kelor in Man of Steel. She’s also no stranger to comic book adaptations, with roles in both Watchmen and Sin City. Still, the actress has her sights on the Dccu and recently spoke about her desire to work with Snyder once more in a new interview with Digital Spy:

“Interviewer: Do you have any ambitions now that [Snyder is] kinda the head of the DC Movie Universe to appear on screen and play a superhero?

Gugino: I mean, let me tell you something. »

Which DC Comics Character Could Carla Gugino Play?

28 May 2015 6:39 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Everyone wants to get in on the superhero movie genre, and Carla Gugino is no different. The San Andreas actress did the press rounds for her earthquake disaster movie and was asked which superhero she'd like to play. Although she didn't specify a character, she did say that because she's worked with Zack Snyder in movies like Watchmen, Sucker Punch and in Man of Steel (she voiced the Kryptonian service robot Kelor), she has her eye on the DC universe. But whom could she play? Gugino told Digital Spy that a DC role needs to be "next on my list," after emphasizing that she'd go anywhere with Snyder. It's unclear how involved the filmmaker will be in the DC cinematic universe after Batman v Superman. He has been attached to the Justice League movies, but a lot can change between now and then. He also could either act like a »
