Zack Snyder Shares A Close Up Look At Batman v Superman's "Knightmare" Caped Crusader

4 December 2016 7:30 AM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Batman-News has spotted a new image on Zack Snyder's Vero account, and it offers up a detailed look at Ben Affleck in his "Knightmare" Batman costume from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The filmmaker captioned the image "Joker Card," and while it's likely this is an old picture, what if it's actually confirmation that we'll get to see the hero back in this suit for next year's Justice League? The scene did after all revolve around Darkseid and his Parademons, while The Flash's message from the future is something we've been told will be addressed somewhere down the line. It seems like we're just going to have to wait and see for now, but if nothing else, this is still a cool photo!

Lego Batman Movie Poster Is Jam-Packed with DC Heroes and Villains

1 December 2016 4:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Warner Bros. debuted a new trailer for their highly-anticipated animated spin-off The Lego Batman Movie, as fans get ready for the February 10, 2017 release date. Director Chris McKay, who served as the animation director of the 2014 blockbuster The Lego Movie and makes his feature directorial debut with this spin-off, revealed that there are also plenty of Easter Eggs that are waiting to be found when the film hits theaters. Today we have a new poster, which offers a new look at Batman (Will Arnett), Batgirl (Rosario Dawson) and Robin (Michael Cera), along with a slew of other DC Comics characters, most of whom have not yet been announced.

iTunes debuted the poster earlier today, which features The Joker (Zach Galifianakis) and Alfred Pennyworth (Ralph Fiennes) directly behind the aforementioned heroes, along with Harley Quinn. If you look up in the sky you can see Lego versions of Superman, Green Lantern and Hawkman, »

May The [Speed] Force Be With You: Miller Likens The Flash Powers To Star Wars

30 November 2016 6:27 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

While there's definitely something going on with the WB's The Flash movie- with the film having lost two directors in less than a year over "creative differences"- one constant positive coming out of the production is star Ezra Miller's passion for the character. In the past, he's given some very meaty, thoughtful responses about how he feels about Barry Allen, aka The Flash, and what he can do. A new series of comments regarding the Speed Force continues the trend of Miller being super locked-in and invested in The Flash's abilities and challenges.

While out promoting Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, Miller was asked about the Speed Force and the way it'll be handled in The Flash. Miller drew a comparison to another very famous force: Namely, The Force.

Here's exactly what Miller said about the Speed Force in The Flash and how it calls »

The Flash: Ezra Miller Compares The Dceu's Speed Force To Another Familiar Sc-Fi Force

30 November 2016 2:42 AM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While we may have caught our first glimpse of the Speed Force in Batman v Superman, there's still a lot left to explore in the Dceu's take on the extra-dimensional energy that powers The Flash and other Speedsters like him. In a recent interview with the #Mills YouTube channel for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, Ezra Miller elaborated a little further on what his idea of the Speed Force is to both himself and his take on Barry Allen.  "[Dance choreographer] Martha Graham, one of my greatest inspirations, said in a a quote that 'there is a vitality, a life force, a quickening', and for me, the idea of a quickening, the idea that the whole universe as we know it is essentially this composition of things at different speeds, is an interesting idea," Miller said, comparing the influence of the Speed Force as similar to that of the Force from Star Wars. »

John Cleese linked to DC Extended Universe role

27 November 2016 6:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rumours are flying that John Cleese could have bagged himself a role in the DC Extended Universe, owing to some social media activity which has seen Dceu stills photographer Clay Enos following Cleese on Twitter, before the Monty Python legend then began following both Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck.

While it seems quite preposterous that someone following someone else on Twitter could spawn a news story, a similar thing occurred earlier this year when director Rick Famuyiwa began following DC-related accounts, and he was then subsequently announced as director on The Flash (although he has since left the project).

So, with regards to Cleese, it’s certainly possible that he is being lined up for a role, presumably either in Justice League or The Batman (or both). Or, seeing as neither Snyder or Affleck are following him back yet, perhaps he’s just seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and is #TeamBatman… »

Warner Bros. purchased Machinima to “lure fanboys” to their DC films and video games

24 November 2016 2:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was announced earlier in the week that Warner Bros. had purchased online brand Machinima for just under $100 million, and now The Hollywood Reporter are saying this purchase was a strategic one as the studio want to use the brand to “lure fanboys” to their products.

It’s fair to say that this year has not been a positive one for Warner Bros.’ DC output. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was destroyed by critics and failed to win over audiences, and many felt Suicide Squad didn’t live up to the hype set by the trailers. Futhermore the Wonder Woman trailer, released last month, didn’t raise any spirits for fans of the franchise, nor did the news that Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa had both left The Flash without a director. But they’re hoping this new channel to reach out to fanboys could bolster their popularity.

Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Ruin: Column #4

21 November 2016 12:14 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm. 

It's suggested that you read the previous entries in the series, as they all build upon one another:

Column #3

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times."

- Charles Dickens, "A Tale of Two Cities"

In 2012, Warner Bros. found itself in a uniquely Dickensian situation. On the one hand, The Dark Knight Rises had just concluded the finest series of films based on their DC property since in 1989’s Batman. They were riding high, enjoying the glow of Christopher Nolan’s work in making high-minded, mature, and often fascinating movies out of comic book characters, while also enjoying the love of fans, critics, and paying customers alike. Yet on the other hand, there’s the »

Justice League: Miller Refers To Gadot's Wonder Woman As A Mother And A Force Of Nature

21 November 2016 6:54 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Ezra Miller has been in the news a lot lately. The actor appears in the current #1 movie in the world, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, and yet as he's gone around promoting that film everyone seems to want to talk to him about his next Warner Bros. movie. Miller will be reprising his role as Barry Allen, aka The Flash, in the studio's ambitious superhero epic Justice League next November. He recently spoke to a member of the Israeli press who wanted to know what it was like to work with Gal Gadot in the DC extravaganza. 

Miller sounds like he loved what the Israeli actress brought to the production. He gushed that "she was such a pleasure" to work with. "What an incredible force of nature,” Miller added. “She is such a mother."

These descriptions of her fall right in line with what we've seen in trailers for Wonder Woman so far. »

Did John Cleese Join Justice League and the Dceu?

20 November 2016 11:16 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite the perceived problems facing the DC Extended Universe at this point, one thing these movies have not had an issue with is casting. They've hauled in big names like Will Smith, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, and the list goes on. It looks like that very impressive list might be getting longer, as comedy legend John Cleese just might be joining up with the Dceu starting with Justice League.

Don't get your hopes up quite yet, but there is some, and we do mean only some, evidence that the Monty Python actor is circling a DC movie for Warner Bros. As Twitter user Dennis Lamb pointed out, both the Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice account, and DC Photographer Clay Enos both followed John Cleese recently. That may not seem like much on paper, but it is more of an indicator than you may think.

Reddit Thinks John Cleese Has A Role In Justice League

19 November 2016 7:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The speculation train is running at full speed tonight, with the internet abuzz over the possibility of John Cleese having a role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Nothing’s been confirmed as of yet, but fans have done some snooping around and it seems like they’ve made an interesting discovery.

If you recall, we learnt of both Joe Manganiello’s involvement in The Batman and Rick Famuyiwa signing on for The Flash due to looking at who key players in the DC Extended Universe had recently followed on Twitter. It seems like a stretch, but it’s proven to be a useful tool for finding out about casting involvements and whatnot before they’re announced by the studio.

Green Lantern Will Be In Justice League

18 November 2016 3:29 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

According to a report from The Wrap, Green Lantern will have a role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which arrives in theatres next November. Despite the fact that we know next to nothing about Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern Corps., which is set for a 2020 release, apparently the studio plans to introduce the character in the upcoming superhero team-up film – and really, it’s about time they do.

All the report says is that a “member of the Green Lantern Corps. will be seen in Justice League in a key sequence.” It doesn’t reveal which member it’ll be or the actor set to play him (though we have our own ideas on that), but it’s an extremely intriguing nugget of information nonetheless.

Back when Justice League was still set to be split into two parts, we were told that we’d be introduced to Green Lantern in the second half. »

The Flash: Don’t Expect Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen To Be A Wholly Competent Speedster

18 November 2016 12:21 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Image via Warner Bros.

When telling a superhero story, there are generally two approaches one could take to the character. Does the character fully understand and know how to use his or her powers, or are they just a hero in training? The latter has a high potential to be frustrating. As an audience member, there are fewer things more annoying when a character does stupid things for the sake of the plot (you have no idea how many times I yell at the TV when watching CW’s The Flash due to Barry Allen's terrible Speedster skills), and the former has the potential to be flat-out boring.

If a character is too competent with its superhuman abilities, you have the potential for everything to come too easy. If everything comes to easy, there is no inherent conflict, and that makes for a dull watch. To be fair, that’s »

Here's Why Brett Ratner Should Direct The Flash For Warner Bros.

18 November 2016 11:14 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

A couple of weeks ago when news broke that Rick Famuyiwa had abruptly exited The Flash, my co-hosts on the Los Fanboys Podcast asked me who I thought should replace him. At the time, I found myself kind of reaching. No one really sprang instantly to mind, and so I made a couple of half-hearted suggestions on the spot. But, being that all things DC are so near and dear to my heart, I've continued to think and think and...think...and a name suddenly popped into my head and I'm now prepared to plead my case for why Brett Ratner would actually be an ideal man for the job.

With Famuyiwa's sudden departure, and amidst rumors that Warner Bros. was at a "To Delay, or Not To Delay?" crossroads, I mentioned that I hope that the WB learns from Fox's mistakes on X3. This wasn't a dig at Ratner. »

Ezra Miller Says We Won't See The Flash's Powers Evolve To Kingdom Come Levels

17 November 2016 7:15 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The small screen version of The Flash has mastered his powers fairly quickly, but based on new comments from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star Ezra Miller, his Scarlet Speedster will be struggling to master his powers in both Justice League and his own solo outing. Talking to IGN, he revealed that while Barry will learn more about harnessing the Speed Force when he teams up with the likes of Batman and Superman, the Fastest Man Alive will remain a hero in training for some time.  "I certainly think it will represent the next stage," he said of The Flash's upcoming movie. "What I find fascinating is that we’re still very much amateur-hour Speedster. I’d love for the series to track an evolution of Barry Allen’s early times as The Flash.
