Spoilers for Wonder Woman follow. You have been warned…
Over the weekend it was reported that Harry Potter star David Thewlis is portraying the main villain in Warner Bros.’ next DC Extended Universe release Wonder Woman, and during the New York Toy Fair, an action figure showing said villain – Ares – was on display, giving us our very first glimpse of the God of War from the Gal Gadot-headlined solo movie; take a look here, and let us know your thoughts on the design in the comments below…

While Justice League did have a presence at the San Diego Comic-Con last year in the form of a teaser/sizzle reel, we’re yet to get a full trailer for the DC blockbuster, which is set to open in November. However, director Zack Snyder has now revealed that the wait will not be much longer, with the information coming by way of Snyder’s Vero account (via Smtv’s Sean Murphy):

Warner Bros. has Wonder Woman set to arrive this summer, so presumably the focus for the studio’s marketing team will be on the Amazon Princess’ solo outing for the time being. That said, it would be a surprise if we still haven’t had the trailer before Wonder Woman opens in July.

DC Comics’ God of War, Ares, has been rumored to be the villain of the Wonder Woman movie since before director Patty Jenkins even began shooting, and thanks to a recent magazine article and some photos of a few toys, it would now finally seem to be confirmed. Though we know Ares will appear, we haven’t really given much thought to the actor that would be stepping into the role, as most fans had assumed the character would be a fully CG creation. However, some new information has now revealed that a familiar face will indeed bring life to the powerful baddie.
According to sources close to the project, Ares will be played via a mixture of CGI and practical effects by none other than David Thewlis. Even if you’re not familiar with the name, you’ll almost certainly have seen the British actor in the Harry Potter »

The DC Extended Universe is in trouble. Wonder Woman is being called a “discombobulated mess,” The Flash is still without a director, The Batman is also without someone to helm and pretty soon, Warner Bros. may be looking for a new Caped Crusader. The last remaining bright spot, then, is Justice League. Zack Snyder’s film is hoping to turn things around for the studio and get their grand plan back on track. But will it be enough?
Right now, we’re honestly not sure. The whole cinematic universe is in such a state of disarray that it’s hard to believe that one single movie will turn the tide, no matter how good it may be. Either way, it’s far too early to tell as we really haven’t seen much of Justice League, but that could be about to change. A second trailer has been rumored to »

We still have nine months left until Justice League hits theaters on November 17, and it isn't clear when Warner Bros. pans on releasing the next batch of footage. Thankfully, cinematographer Fabian Wagner sent out a new photo of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman form the movie, while revealing that his movie has a similar visual style to Batman v Superman, which was shot by Larry Fong. Here's what Fabian Wagner had to say in his Instagram caption.
"Last year I was fortunate enough to work with Zack Snyder on his new movie 'Justice League'. I had always been a fan of his work and of his long time cinematographer Larry Fong. I tried to put my own stamp onto it but Larry's dark and beautiful lighting was a huge source of inspiration. I had the best time working with all of those guys #justiceleague #zacksnyder #larryfong"

Warning. Spoilers for Wonder Woman follow…
We’ve seen a lot of marketing material for Gal Gadot’s upcoming solo DC movie Wonder Woman over the past few months, but so far Warner Bros. has done a pretty good job of keeping the film’s main antagonist under wraps.
That being said, a report in January suggested that the Amazon Princess will find herself battling Ares, the God of War – something that was supported by a first look at the action figure tie-in line, which includes an Ares Build-a-Figure.
Well, Batman-News is reporting that Ares is indeed the main villain, and that he’ll be portrayed by Harry Potter star David Thewlis, through a mixture of practical effects and CGI (which the site speculates may be the reason he’s been absent from the film’s trailers).
Thewlis’ casting was first announced by Warner Bros. back in November of 2015, but »

Ares' role in Wonder Woman has been rumoured for a while now, but it was recently confirmed thanks to both a magazine feature and some upcoming action figures. So far, most of us have assumed that X-Men Origins: Wolverine baddie Danny Huston would be revealed as that character, but it appears as if Warner Bros. has been playing a game of misdirection! Test screenings for the movie took place yesterday, and while it's not clear if this information hails from those, Batman-News reports that multiple sources have told them Harry Potter star David Thewlis will, in fact, be revealed as Ares, a character who is the main villain in Wonder Woman and a mixture of CGI and practical effects. We've known about the actor's involvement in the movie for some time now, but most of us probably assumed he was playing some sort of unassuming military figure or scientist. His »

So much for that positive Batman news.
Just a week after War for the Planet of the Apes’ Matt Reeves was reportedly in talks to direct The Batman – the week after Ben Affleck announced his departure from the role – THR have now revealed the director is no longer interested.
Not only that, but according to one report, Affleck himself “wants out” of the franchise.

Comic book movies have been a thing for about as long as Hollywood has been a thing, but the modern age of Superhero movies didn't really get going until around 2000. That was when X-Men came out, which changed everything. Cut to 17 years later and we still have yet to have a good, female-led superhero movie in the modern era. Wonder Woman is hoping to change that this summer.
Warner Bros. may be a little late to the game in terms of making a cinematic universe around their DC Comics superheroes when compared to Marvel Studios, but they are beating Marvel to the punch on this one. Marvel Studios has strong female heroes like Black Widow and Scarlet Witch, but after nearly a decade of making comic book movies, they have yet to make a movie featuring a female as the lead. Warner Bros. is releasing Wonder Woman as their fourth »

While we continue to wait for the new trailer, director Zack Snyder has teased an action sequence from November’s Justice League movie, sharing a photo from the post-production studio featuring Ben Affleck’s Batman going up against some heavily armoured – and heavily armed – mystery villains.
And here’s a closer look at the scene in question…

It is starting to feel like DC fans around the world are sort of tapping their watches and pointing at Warner Bros., wondering where the Justice League trailer is and when we can see it. A "sneak peek" was released over last summer at San Diego Comic-Con, which more or less served as the first trailer for the movie, but a lot has happened since then and fans want to see some Justice League footage. While it may not be footage, director Zack Snyder has shared a new photo online that not only gives an idea of where they are at in the process, but it also shows Ben Affleck's Batman in action.
The photo, which showed up on Reddit but is currently absent from any of Zack Snyder's social media accounts, gives a bit of a window into the post-production process for Justice League. It appears that »
Now that you’ve had a chance to cool off after seeing a behind the scenes shot of Batman busting a few heads courtesy of director Zack Snyder, you can brace yourself for a look at some of the first collectibles revealed to promote the upcoming Justice League movie.

The Caped Crusader can be seen leaping into action in this all-new Bts photo for Justice League, but does this post signal that a new trailer is imminent?
That’s the question that has been hot on everyone’s lips for weeks, and with Warner Bros. gearing up to launch a new promo for Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – twice delayed, it’s on course to drop in May – the latest trailers for both Wonder Woman and Justice League can’t be too far behind it.
Until such a time when we have that new preview to peruse, this behind-the-scenes image is really the next best thing. Taken from the Justice League editing bay, according to the caption attached to the picture, Zack Snyder is currently overseeing the film’s color-grading process.
As for the action scene itself, the photo showcases Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader »

Word of this latest rumor first surfaced via Reddit (hat tip to Screen Geek), so it almost goes without saying that these allegations ought to be treated with heightened caution. Citing sources close to Warner Bros., Reddit user DCLeaks_Throwaway reaffirms reports that WB has now extended an official offer for Reeves to replace Ben Affleck at the helm. Going one step further, and amid chatter that Affleck is on the verge of exiting the project altogether, this new finding claims Reeves’ potential contract will span multiple films in the DC Extended Universe starting with The Batman, a standalone pic wherein he’ll seemingly have a major say in the casting process.

Justice League is now in post-production, and as we await that highly anticipated trailer, director Zack Snyder has teased us yet again with another image from the editing suite. This one provides a glimpse of a fight scene involving Batman (Ben Affleck) and some well-armed baddies that look like they could be some kind of Parademons - though they do appear significantly different to the ones that were introduced during the nightmare sequence in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The pic is captioned "Down at CO3 with Stefan," so Snyder is obviously overseeing the color-grading at Company 3, who specialize in sprucing up video footage. Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.

While it wasn't exactly a secret, we've finally received more confirmation that Henry Cavill's Superman will indeed make an appearance in Zack Snyder's Justice League this fall. Now, as for how big of an appearance, that's yet-to-be-seen. Yahoo! Movies have debuted six first look images at DC Collectibles' upcoming line of premium, screen-accurate 12-inch statues, which are based on the upcoming movie lineup. That lineup features Cavill as the Man of Steel, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. The meticulously detailed statues offer amazing new looks at each individual costume and reveal that Superman will wear his red-and-blue suit at some point during the movie. It's also been heavily rumored that he'll possibly sport a black-and-silver costume as well, but since we're still a long ways away from November, it'll probably »
