Dany Garcia admits some people may have underestimated her when she began a Hollywood career, managing ex-husband Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. “Dwayne is a big presence, a loud voice,” Garcia notes. “In our initial meetings, we would come in, he’d have a conversation, then hand it off to me. I would run with it and talk about business models and return-on-investments. And we loved watching the reaction in the room; it was always satisfying.”
Garcia is used to shattering expectations. Growing up in Miami the daughter of immigrants from Cuba, she says her plan was just to be financially successful. After majoring in international marketing and finance at the University of Miami, she rose to vice president at Merrill Lynch, then formed her own wealth management firm. But she left the world of finance behind to take on Johnson’s career in 2008, transitioning him from a wrestler with a few solid movies into a global superstar »

Warner Bros. has unveiled a new TV spot for Justice League that features new footage with Batman (Ben Affleck) assembling his team of "warriors." With just over a month left until this superhero ensemble hits theaters, hopefully we'll get much more footage of these heroes working together as a team, even if The Flash (Ezra Miller) isn't terribly confident in his skills. This footage features a new scene where Barry Allen reveals that all he really does is push people and then "run away fast." Still, Batman will need those skills, and the rest of his team, if they are to defeat the new threats that are coming.
Unlike the new Justice League trailer that dropped yesterday, which gave us our first look at Henry Cavill's Superman, this trailer doesn't feature the Man of Steel, like practically every other piece of marketing material thus far. While we know Superman will be back, »

It seems to be one train wreck after another for Justice League: a film that has failed to catch a single break over the course of its production. First, it had to build on the shaky foundations of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: a tall order for any film, no matter how conceptually promising. An early cut of the film was described by at least one Warner Bros. executive as being completely “unwatchable.” Several rounds of reshoots later, and Zack Snyder had to bow out of the production following a family tragedy, replaced by Joss Whedon who, by

Barring the last-minute clips and scintillating promos, Sunday’s grand trailer reveal was concrete proof that the Justice League marketing campaign is now beginning to enter the homestretch.
Set against a rather somber, yet fitting cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes,” the footage itself signaled Steppenwolf’s oncoming invasion, as the DC mega-villain waged war on Themyscira and its opulent army of Amazonians. Out of luck and out of time, Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader then begins scouring the globe in search of allies, eventually cobbling together a team comprised of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Flash (Ezra Miller). And that’s where the fun really begins.
In fact, if you’ve been longing for Superman’s return, the third and final Justice League trailer opened with a dream sequence, one in which Lois Lane (Amy Adams) welcomes the Man of Steel onto Kent Farm, »

Due to New York Comic Con, birthdays and anniversaries, it’s an abridged version of The Week in Spandex this week. Normal service will be resumed this coming Saturday…
The big news from the weekend was of course the release of the latest trailer for Warner Bros.’ upcoming blockbuster Justice League, while on the DC front we also had plenty of updates on the superhero team-up, as well as news on Batman, Aquaman, Constantine, and the various DC TV offerings. On the Marvel side of things, we’re still waiting on an Avengers: Infinity War trailer, but we do have plenty of Thor: Ragnarok promotional material, as well as rumours of Punisher delays, a first look at Runaways and more, and over at Fox Gambit may have found another director…

Wonder Woman, 2017.
Directed by Patty Jenkins.
After a fighter pilot crash lands on her home island, an Amazonian princess leaves the safety of her home and joins the battle of Wwi, discovering her superpowers along the way.
It would be fair to say that the DC Extended Universe has gotten off to a fairly shaky start with some mixed reactions to the three movies already released, those being Man of Steel, Suicide Squad and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, Wonder Woman, film number four, has proven to be a step in a more positive direction with a theatrical run that brought millions of paying customers through cinema doors to see the first full big screen adventure for the Amazonian princess. »

Warner Bros. has released a new Justice League trailer online, offering yet another look at the highly anticipated DC Comics adaptation. The superhero pic follows Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and Wonder Woman as the fifth entry in Warner Bros.' interconnected universe of DC films and finds Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Batman (Ben Affleck) joining forces to create a team of “metahumans” in order to combat the otherworldly threat Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds). Justice League started filming in 2016 under the direction of Zack Snyder, but earlier this year Joss Whedon took over the production so Snyder … »

If you’ve been anywhere near a discussion about Man of Steel or Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, you’ll have heard one major complaint: “It’s tooooo dark!” While it’s a bit of a simplistic criticism, I think they’ve got a point.
Zack Snyder, for better or worse, clearly takes these heroes’ psychological and personal problems dead serious, resulting in some occasionally painfully po-faced melodrama in which it becomes perilously difficult to take seriously a super-powered space alien debating with a billionaire dressed up as a bat.
Spooked by the critical mauling that Batman V Superman received, it’s commonly assumed that Warner Bros. realized they needed to adjust course quickly and that if Justice League was a humorless slog it ran the chance of killing the whole Dceu project. Hence getting Joss Whedon in to finish the film and reportedly engaging in last minute reshoots »

Samuel Brace on DC’s movie endings…
Fistfight! Explosions! Chaos!
This has been the climactic scene of every Dceu (are we still calling it that?) film so far, this is how the powers that be have decided to end the movies that populate their connected universe up until this point. Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman. All the same, each film’s narrative struggle brought to a close by a ‘crowd pleasing’ CGI slugfest.
Now, I should have prefaced this by saying Marvel too is guilty of such tactics, but since that ship has well and truly sailed, and I don’t have much interest in trying to call it back, we’re focusing here on DC only because that universe, maybe, possibly, can still be saved. But they have to act quickly, they have to act soon, and they have to learn how to end their movies. »

Are you counting down the seconds until that new Justice League trailer drops tomorrow? Well, if you are, Warner Bros. has just given us all a little something to whet our appetites with in the form of a Justice League trailer teaser. It's only about 20-seconds-long, but if nothing else, it serves as an excellent reminder that we're getting a full-length trailer tomorrow morning. And that Justice League is a little over a month away from arriving in theaters.
The trailer tease was released via the official Justice League Twitter account and features a whole lot of action in a very short period of time. Unfortunately, it is almost entirely footage we've seen previously, but it all looks very flashy and is cut together quite nicely. Plus, that means they're probably saving all of the new stuff for us tomorrow. Are we finally going to get a glimpse of Superman? »
Back in June it was revealed that Joss Whedon had enlisted Danny Elfman to compose the score for Justice League, with Elfman coming on board the DC blockbuster as a replacement for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s Junkie Xl.
Elfman has since revealed that he’s using parts of John Williams’ classic Superman theme in his score for the DC team-up, and now according to Film Music Reporter, he may also be revisiting his own iconic Batman theme from Tim Burton’s 1989 movie.
Treat this as a rumour for the time being, but if true, it will certainly be interesting to hear how Elfman incorporates the two classic themes into his score, and their inclusion will surely raise a smile among fans of the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight.

Being someone who’s been looking forward to seeing a Justice League movie for years, I had a shortlist of villains that I expected to serve as the primary antagonist whenever my favorite superheroes eventually teamed up on the big screen for the first time. Obviously, the usual suspects consisted of heavy hitters like Darkseid, Brainiac and the Crime Syndicate. So, you could imagine my shock upon hearing that Zack Snyder settled on Steppenwolf.
My reason for saying that is because, while Steppenwolf is most certainly a formidable villain and was quite the nuisance in the recent Earth 2 comics, he’s essentially Darkseid’s subordinate. Thus, I found it odd that someone such as him would be chosen as the big bad.
On top of that, this past summer saw reliable sources report that Darkseid’s cameo at the end of the flick had been removed altogether, not only »

Love him or hate him, you have to acknowledge that every superhero you admire today owes their existence to the Man of Steel – and it all started back in 1938 with the release of Action Comics #1. In those pages, we saw the debut of Superman, who soon went on to completely take over that title and headline an ongoing series of his own.
Originally created by Jerry Siegel and the Joe Shuster, Big Blue has since inspired fans in radio productions, animation, live action cinema and especially the realm of television, which is seemingly never bereft of Kal-El or his supporting characters for too long.
Not surprisingly, DC Comics intend on honoring his enduring legacy next year with the historic release of Action Comics #1000, the first comic book to organically reach that milestone. (Face it, Deadpool‘s tongue-in-cheek thousandth issue doesn’t count.) And as such, it obviously won’t be your average twenty-odd page release. »

Even though it’s always much appreciated whenever we receive high resolution images or a round of posters in support of the next blockbuster movie, it’s undoubtedly the trailers that have everyone talking most. After all, what better way to pass the time while waiting for the big screen debut of the Justice League than with a generous amount of new footage?
Now, we already knew to expect the final preview this Sunday, but odds are you were probably wondering exactly when you should affix your eyes to your computer, tablet or phone. Well, thanks to the official Justice League Movie Twitter page, we have our answer: Sunday at 9Am Et / 6Am Pt! Really, could you have asked for something better to watch while you eat your cereal?

Lately, it seems like we can’t wake up without being treated to new Justice League goodies. After all, not only is the theatrical release just over a month away, but we also have the final trailer to look forward to this Sunday. But, in the interim, we have more than just the folks in Warner Bros.’ marketing department to help tide us over.
By now, you probably have some amount of familiarity with Boss Logic, one of the most prolific fan artists on social media today. Basically, whenever there’s a major casting announcement – or even just rumors – they’re quickly on the job, giving us a fair idea of what specific actors may look like in the guise of various iconic characters.
Or, in this case, it’s to fill in a missing piece of the puzzle.

With its November 17th release date not too far off now, the marketing machine for Justice League has really kicked into high gear. Just yesterday, we learned that the third and final trailer will be here this weekend, and to accompany that news, we also got five beautiful character portraits. Yes, only five.
Acting as a timely companion piece to those technicolor one-sheets, they focused on Justice League‘s founding members: Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg. Conspicuous by his absence? Superman, of course, though that’s really been the story of the marketing blitz ever since the Man of Steel was laid to rest at the tail-end of Dawn of Justice.
That being said, if you peer close enough you’ll notice that Kal-El’s iconic symbol of hope is included on each poster, so even if Supes has spent the past few months waiting in the wings, »
