Zack Snyder's 'Justice League' makes a triumphant trailer debut at Comic-Con
Despite what many people believe about critics or people who write about movies professionally, I love to be surprised, and I love to be proven wrong. When I kicked off an unexpectedly vehement wave of fan-driven mayhem this spring by sharing buzz I’d been hearing about Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, I did so without having any idea what kind of blowback I’d get. I wasn’t looking to shake anyone’s faith, and I certainly wasn’t pretending that the buzz I’d been hearing was the final word on anything. That’s one of the reasons the extreme overreaction bummed me out so much. If I can’t feel free to honestly report which way the wind is blowing as we build up to the release of a film, then you’re essentially asking me to just be part of the marketing arm of the studios.

And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

When Warner Bros. announced that the follow up movie to Man of Steel would feature a clash of two of the greatest comic book titans ever, I was beyond excited.

30 Things We Learned About the Justice League Movie

Tai Freligh with 30 things we learned about the Justice League movie…

News about Zack Snyder’s follow up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had been few and far between in terms of photos, logos, plot descriptions, etc. Then late last week the news leaked that several reporters were heading to London to do a Justice League set visit. It looked like they spent a full day on set and then flew back over this past weekend. And that’s when the rumour that something big was going to drop on Tuesday started to circulate and grow and take on a life of its own. It wasn’t until we started to see various entertainment news outlets start to confirm that big Justice League news was dropping on Tuesday morning at 6am Pt/9am Et/2pm UK time that we started to believe the hype. We didn’t know what to expect.

Did Warner Bros. change the conversation about 'Justice League' today?

Did Warner Bros. change the conversation about 'Justice League' today?
When the phone rang, I answered immediately. I knew Bebe Lerner, Zack Snyder’s personal publicist, was supposed to be calling me, but I wasn’t sure why. “Hi, Bebe,” I said. “Am I in trouble?” It’s a fair question. After all, my relationship to Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice has been a difficult one, and my reportage this spring set off way more controversy than I would have guessed possible. At this point, anytime I start to write about any DC film, I have a moment of hesitation. “Is this worth the hassle it will inevitably become?” One of my least favorite things about all of this has been the way all communication with Zack and Deb Snyder ceased the moment my reporting set off a ripple of bad publicity. I’ve been talking to the Snyders about their work since they were in post-production on 300, and

Heaps Of New "Justice League" Details

A whole bunch of set visit reports from numerous outlets have just gone online regarding Zack Snyder's currently in production "Justice League" film. There's a lot to breakdown from these reports, but to save you time here's the cliff notes take of all the key information:

The production has a 111-day shoot and is approaching the 40 or so day mark at this point. Shooting will continue in London until September and then they go to Los Angeles and another still to be determined location with the main shoot scheduled to wrap in October. It is shot on film, but not IMAX, and Junkie Xl is doing the score on his own.

Events take place several months after 'Dawn of Justice' and the tone is decidedly lighter with plenty of moments of levity and a fun sensibility. The theme is almost the opposite of 'Dawn' - it's about learning to trust people.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’s R-Rating Is Only For “A Little Bit Of Violence”

Were you hoping that the R-rated Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would be packed with bloody brawls bordering on torture porn? Well, if you were, you probably won’t like what Zack Snyder had to say to The Hollywood Reporter.

“[The DVD release] is a half-hour longer, and some of that additional material is some of the stuff we took out for the rating. I was like, “Cool, I can put it back in for the director’s cut.” There was nothing by design. This was the material I just put back in, and then when [the MPAA] looked at it again, they were like, ‘Oh, now the movie’s rated R.’ And, by the way, it’s not a hard R. There’s no nudity. There’s a little bit of violence. It just tips the scale.”

Since Deadpool blew up at the box office, proving that R-rated antics aren

What does this 'Batman v Superman' controversy teach us about fan-trums?

What does this 'Batman v Superman' controversy teach us about fan-trums?
When you write about entertainment all day every day, you tend to get caught up in minutiae, and it leads to editorial decisions I would call questionable. When you're writing breathless headlines about Pez dispensers, you may be working too hard to find relevance in the irrelevant. Getting hung up on the micro often prevents us from focusing on the macro, but I'd like to take the opportunity to take a step back from time to time to examine 'The Bigger Picture.' I'd like to start by telling you three stories. They're just three totally unrelated stories about going to see movies with people reacting afterwards in ways that are, by any definition, irrational. I can't imagine what might have happened in the last week that would have me reflecting on these incidents, but maybe by the time I've told them, we can figure out some sort of unifying thread.

More From Man Of Steel Producer Deborah Snyder

In the recent issue of SFX Magazine, Deb Snyder dishes on Lois casting, the costume and what she feels is the heart of the movie. Click the link below for more from Mrs Snyder! On the heart of the story: "Someone said to me it’s the greatest adoption story in all of history. I think that’s an interesting way of looking at it – maybe because I was just in the process personally of adopting my two children. The people of Earth adopt him and he adopts us, as well. A lot of the messaging in this film is about family, and who makes you who you are. Clark is on this journey of self discovery, trying to figure out who he is and where he fits in, and in the end he comes to see what Jor-El, his Kryptonian father, has sacrificed and given for him. And he

R-Rated Extended Cut Of Zack Snyder's 'Sucker Punch' Lands On BluRay On June 28th With 18 More Mins.
Worst film of the year so far? Zack Snyder's massively wrongheaded and overstuffed faux feminist folly is certainly up there, but the film does have its defenders and the debate will start all over again when "Sucker Punch" hits BluRay next month with a longer extended cut which will add 18 minutes to the already overly long movie. During press rounds for the film back in the spring Zack Snyder and his wife and producing partner Deb Snyder weren't shy about sharing what they had to cut to in order to please the MPAA and get the film to their…

Set Visit: Visual overload, lovely ladies on 'Sucker Punch' set

Set Visit: Visual overload, lovely ladies on 'Sucker Punch' set
Vancouver - Walking through the various sets and art departments and rehearsal spaces in use for the movie "Sucker Punch," Deb Snyder giving us the majority of the tour with well-orchestrated appearances from the various department heads and director Zack Snyder himself, one thing quickly became apparent to me:  no matter how hard they all tried to explain the film to me, this was not going to be a movie that would ever be easily summed up. I've known Zack Snyder since the post-production period on "300," when I visited his offices in Burbank to watch some early footage that he'd...

  • JoBlo
You've seen the trailer. You know this film is full of hot chicks. But what is Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch about? I was lucky enough to visit the set last year in a very rainy Vancouver. The film is almost all women...women kicking ass! All this week we'll be bringing you interviews from the stars of the film including Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Oscar Iaasc, Jena Malone, Abbie Cornish and geek goddess Carla Gugino. We'll even have Deb Snyder giving a sneak peek at the film. First...

Exclusive: John Orloff Talks Legend of The Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

The writer discusses adapting the screenplay as well as his upcoming movie Anonymous, about William Shakespeare

Writer John Orloff's career began when Oscar winners Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg read a screenplay he wrote called Soul Of The Age, which is about the authorship controversy surrounding many of William Shakespeare's most famous plays. That led to an opportunity for Orloff to write several episodes of the Emmy Award winning mini-series Band of Brothers.

In 2007 the writer's adaptation of Mariane Pearl's memoir A Mighty Heart was released starring Oscar winner Angelina Jolie, and it earned him an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best First Screenplay. Since then Orloff has been hired to pen several high profile scripts, including a film based on the life of "James Bond" author Ian Fleming called Fleming for Leonardo DiCaprio, and an adaptation of The Martian Chronicles, by Ray Bradbury. Not to mention that his screenplay about Shakespeare,

Zack Snyder's sexy, surreal 'Sucker Punch' trailer debuts online

When I visited the Vancouver set for Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch," producer Deb Snyder spent an hour of the tour explaining the film's plot to us, using storyboards, production art, and the sets themselves. And I still couldn't tell you what the film will be about. What was obvious during that set visit just became obvious to about 6500 people on Saturday morning when Warner Bros. premiered the first footage from the film during their panel.  Whatever "Sucker Punch" turns out to be, it is absolutely a Zack Snyder film.  This is the first time he's not working from existing source material, and as...

Zack Snyder seems unsure about 'Sucker Punch' 3D conversion

This is where things start to get interesting. I really like Zack and Deb Snyder.  There's something great about a married couple that is also a creative partnership that works this well together, and every time I've ever spoken with them about their various projects, they've struck me as really no-nonsense, hard-working people who love what they do. They also speak their minds whenever they're in front of reporters, so it shouldn't be a surprise that they went off-book in a recent red-carpet interview with MTV about their next film, "Sucker Punch."  For most of this year, Warner Bros. has been talking about...
