Justice League concept artist says Zack Snyder did finish his cut of the movie

Warner Bros. and DC Films may be doing everything they can to move forward from Justice League after the DC blockbuster’s disappointing box office performance last year, but it seems there still remains a passionate section of the fanbase hoping that the studio will release a ‘Snyder Cut’ of the superhero team-up.

While it seems very unlikely that we’ll ever get to see Zack Snyder’s original vision for the movie, Justice League concept artist – and frequent DC animation director – Jay Oliva has revealed that Snyder did in fact deliver a completed version of the film before his departure.

“Zack isn’t the kind of director who creates the film in the edit bay,” said Oliva.” It’s all planned out meticulously from beginning to end. That’s how Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were done. All of the scenes Zack envisioned was

Man Of Steel 2 Announcement Said To Be Imminent

While it sounds like Warner Bros. are waiting to see how Aquaman and Shazam! do before deciding on what’s going to happen with Matt ReevesThe Batman, it looks as if they’re raring to go for a Henry Cavill-starring Man of Steel 2 and an official announcement could be imminent.

Or at least, that’s according to the insider gossip-filled El Fanboy Podcast, which has noted that Cavill’s set to appear on the Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con, which runs from July 19th-22nd, and that the actor’s diary for the next year or so is suspiciously clear.

This news dovetails with Henry recently seen hitting the gym on Instagram, claiming that he’s “working on the Super Buns,” a reference to Superman’s ass. Similarly, recurring whispers put Christopher McQuarrie in the directing seat, having just finished working with Cavill on this summer’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

Brian Michael Bendis Will Write a Year-Long Batman Story in New Batman Giant Comic Book

After years of writing great comic book stories for Marvel Comics, Brian Micheal Bendis headed over to DC Comics to try something new and play with their characters. Well, it has been announced that he'll write a new 12-part Batman story arc in Batman Giant. This is the first time he will be writing a story for the Dark Knight and I'm looking forward to seeing what he does with the character.

This comic is a part of DC's new line of 100-page Giant comics for Walmart. Bendis has had his fair share of working with dark, gritty, and grounded heroes in the past such as Daredevil and Jessica Jones, so Batman should be a fun character for him to play with.

What's interesting is that Bendis is currently writing Superman for DC and while he's taking on Batman for DC's Walmart-exclusive titles, DC's Batman writer Tom King will write a 12-issue Superman story arc.

Did Justice League Also Apply CGI To Henry Cavill’s Hands?

Call it mustache-gate or unfortunate timing, but coming out of Justice League, everyone – and we really do mean everyone – unanimously agreed that Henry Cavill’s upper lip looked very, very strange during select portions of Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s superhero ensemble movie.

There’s a reason for the last-minute CGI, of course, as Henry Cavill was contracted to Mission: Impossible – Fallout, the Paramount action sequel in which he plays a high-ranking operative…with a mustache. So when Justice League‘s production ran into overtime in order to accommodate the sudden loss of Snyder, Cavill was left with no choice but to return to the Warner Bros. lot with mustache still intact.

The fallout was fast and furious, with countless memes of Cavill’s upper lip popping up overnight. However, if a new action shot is to be believed, then Justice League‘s much-maligned CGI wasn’t limited to

The Return of the DC 100-page Giant!

If you’re of a certain generation, you remember the big summertime issues that your parents picked up for you on the way to whatever you were doing that required a long car ride to get there– comics that gave you new stories combined with older fare that brought you into a richer shared universe.

This summer, Walmart shoppers will get a chance to do that again as DC Entertainment announced today that a series of “giant” monthly comics will be sold exclusively in more than 3,000 participating Walmart stores around the country.

Available for $4.99, each 100-page anthology features all-new stories written exclusively for these books by some of DC’s top creative talents, including Tom King, Dan Jurgens, Brian Michael Bendis, Andy Kubert (New Challengers) and others. Each title will also include additional story arcs drawn from fan-favorite DC eras such as the New 52, Rebirth and the New Age of DC Heroes.

Man Of Steel 2 Fan Art Imagines Henry Cavill As Bizarro

Out of all the many DC movie ideas that Warner Bros. is throwing around at the moment, one that fans really want is a Man of Steel 2. Practically everyone agrees that Henry Cavill’s Superman deserves a second shot at a solo adventure, both to explore more of the resurrected version of the Last Son of Krypton from Justice League, and to introduce additional elements of his comic book mythology into the cinematic universe.

Seeing as we’ve already had the likes of Zod, Lex Luthor and Doomsday in the Dceu so far, one villain who seems to be a good candidate for Man of Steel 2 is Bizarro, Superman’s imperfect clone. Given that, it would make sense for Cavill to take on double duty and portray the villain himself, right? Whether you agree or not, we now have an idea of what that might look like.

Batman v Superman cinematographer says severe criticism of the film “hurts”

The cinematographer on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has addressed the criticism the film received upon release.

While Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman performed well enough at the box office, the film certainly didn’t land with applause from critics and it also received a mixed reaction from fans.

There was a lot of very strong criticism directed at Snyder, the film, and those who worked on the production. One of those individuals, cinematographer Larry Fong, told ComicBookDebate that he can’t accept some of the reactions to the film:

“Everyone has their opinion. Does everyone have to love the movie? Of course not… visually I feel like me and my crew killed it, so when you hear things about it, it kind of hurts. To be honest the weirdest thing… I’ve never really talked about this. But the weirdest thing, and this has happened a lot,

'Jurassic World 2' Roars into Domestic Theaters as 'Incredibles 2' Looks to Hold Strong

'Jurassic World 2' Roars into Domestic Theaters as 'Incredibles 2' Looks to Hold Strong
While it may not appear out of the ordinary, this weekend's release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and its anticipated $100+ million opening will mark only the second time ever that two different films have opened with over $100 million back-to-back at the box office.

The first and last time this happened was in 2007 when Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End opened with $114.7 million following Shrek the Third's $121.6 million opening the weekend prior. In fact, the rarity of what will take place this weekend doesn't end there as only eight times following a $100+ million performance at the weekend box office has a film not repeated at #1 the following weekend. Even more rare, two films have never brought in more than $100 million over the same weekend.

Should Incredibles 2 drop 45.26% or less this weekend we'll have yet another piece of history to discuss come Sunday morning.

Justice League Fans Beg ATandT Customer Service for Snyder Cut Release

Last week, At&T finalized its $85 billion merger with Time Warner, which puts the Warner Bros. film studio under At&T's umbrella, and Justice League fans have wasted no time in lobbying for Zack Snyder's cut to be released. A handful of Twitter users have reached out to official At&T Twitter handles to release the Zack Snyder cut, just days after the acquisition was finalized. To their credit, the At&T customer service Twitter account (@ATTCares) even took the time to respond to some of these fans, although their responses don't offer any sure-fire indications that the Snyder cut will be released.

Some aren't even convinced that there is a full "Snyder cut" of Justice League, but those who do have seemingly no intention of giving up this quest to release this cut to the public. These tweets to At&T customer service included the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, which is

WB Boss Gets Candid About Justice League’s Poor Reception

At the risk of kicking the hornet’s nest, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has outstripped Warner’s superhero efforts in every which way – critically, commercially…you name it.

That’s not to say that the DC Extended Universe is beyond repair – far from it, in fact – simply that it needs to nail down some consistency if it’s to compete with the McU. So whereas Wonder Woman reached dizzying new heights back in 2017, the likes of Man of Steel, Suicide Squad and Justice League all struggled to leave much of a lasting impression, and it’s this lowly performance record that was presented to Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich during a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.

And so, after outlining Aquaman‘s raison d’être, the executive circled back to focus on the Dceu’s track record, and attempted to explain why Justice League and its cinematic brethren have missed the mark.

James Wan’s Lighter ‘Aquaman’ Tone Is Not a to Against Zack Snyder’s Dceu Movies, Says Warner Bros. Executive

James Wan’s Lighter ‘Aquaman’ Tone Is Not a to Against Zack Snyder’s Dceu Movies, Says Warner Bros. Executive
Following the critical bashing of “Justice League” last fall, the DC Extended Universe hopes to reverse course and get back on track with the debut of “Aquaman” later this year. Warner Bros. film chairman Toby Emmerich knows just how important it is for “Aquaman” to be a hit, and he tells Entertainment Weekly the focus for the movie studio is all on ensuring the upcoming tentpole is a hit with critics and fans.

“It’s important that it works,” Emmerich said. “I think everybody really worked very hard to make a really good movie. It’s an expensive movie. We believe this movie can work and we’re going to do everything we can as a company — distribution, marketing everything — to make sure it’s successful around the world.”

One major difference between “Aquaman” and many of its Dceu predecessors is its lighter tone. Zack Snyder’s Dceu movies “Man of Steel,

Infinity War Scribes Diss DC Movies: “There’s A Lot Of Spaghetti Being Thrown At The Wall”

If there’s one common complaint that’s often leveled against the DC Extended Universe, it’s that Warner Bros. has a habit of putting the cart before the horse. Which is to say that films like Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel are too concerned with launching a shared cinematic universe that they struggle to tick the most basic boxes – pacing, character development…that kind of thing.

Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, screenwriters of Avengers: Infinity War and the so-far untitled Avengers 4, certainly think so, too, as the creative duo recently appeared on Kevin Smith’s Fat Man on Batman podcast (h/t TheWrap) to discuss the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the state of its biggest competitor.

And so, when Smith asked straight-up about how McFeely and Markus would go about fixing the DC universe, the Marvel duo responded as so:

Superman Was Always Going To Have A Big Role In Justice League’s Final Act

While we’ve undoubtedly become accustomed to Zack Snyder playing the role of spoiler regarding the purging of his Dceu, storyboard artist Jay Oliva has proven to be quite the veritable treasure trove of information himself as of late. Earlier this weekend, Oliva, who’s served in the art department on every single entry in the franchise up until this point, singlehandedly corroborated most of the lore apropos of a Justice League director’s cut.

For an encore, he then confirmed he was the man behind Superman and his lacklustre freeze breath, depicted in the climax of Justice League, and that Snyder did intend to utilize the ability in his version. Now, Oliva’s dropped another bombshell, this time regarding the moustache that sent the web into a tizzy.

Amongst the many, many detriments levelled against Justice League upon release, almost all reference the atrocious CGI used to remove the

Dceu Storyboard Artist Confirms Zack Snyder’s Entire Cut Of Justice League Was Shot

With San Diego Comic-Con still roughly a month away, where we half expect the fabled Snyder cut of Justice League to be rolled out, storyboard artist Jay Oliva – who’s been a veritable treasure trove of Dceu minutia, mind you – has once again doused the fandom flame in kerosene.

While we sift through the latest deluge of Snyder cut mythos – and await confirmation that Zack has indeed called Warner Bros.’ bluff and will foot the bill to complete the director’s cut of Justice League – Oliva has now gone on record, Aka Twitter, saying: “It may not be 100% polished, but all of the planned scenes were shot and edited into a full timeline.”

According to Oliva, who has served in the art department on Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman, and, of course, Justice League, there is a Snyder cut out there somewhere.

Henry Cavill Says He'll Be Back as Superman Soon
While Justice League didn't end up as good as everybody wanted, it did get fans excited to see the return of all of the characters in their standalone films, especially Superman, who was reborn in the doomed movie. The possibility of Henry Cavill returning to play the Man of Steel seems to be in limbo at the moment with all of the behind-the-scenes changes happening at Warner Bros. and DC Films. However, Cavill has stated in the past that there have been talks and he is willing to come back. In a new social media post, the actor teases DC fans by saying that he'll "totally probably" be back as Superman.

Henry Cavill posted a new video of himself on Instagram in the gym doing some pretty intense thrusts that he calls a "Super Booty Burner with Paws." The point of the post is to get fans to go out

Henry Cavill Teases That He’ll “Totally Probably” Be Back As Superman Soon

We last saw Henry Cavill suit up for his third appearance as Superman in November’s Justice League, which featured the Man of Steel reborn and given a new brighter outlook. It left many DC fans hungry to see more of this traditional take on Supes but, due to the future of the Dceu still being figured out, we don’t know when Cavill will be back in the red cape. That being said, the actor has now hinted that it could happen sooner than we think.

The British star shared a video of himself working out on his Instagram page this week and in his caption, he jokingly encouraged fans to vote for him in MTV’s Teen Choice Awards by teasing that it could get him back in character as Superman soon, before saying that it was “totally probably” likely that it’ll happen all the same.

Darren Aronofsky Talks Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ Trilogy And Says How His Version Would Have Differed

Welcome to #FlashbackFriday, where we look at past moments with filmmakers, actors, etc. and highlight something in cinema history that’s fascinating, amusing, perhaps something you never knew or have seen, you name it.

If you’re a fan of comic book films, you’re probably aware that filmmaker Darren Aronofsky has been linked to a few different superhero films throughout the years. At one time or another, the director has been attached to a ‘Wolverine’ film, which he eventually pulled out of, and even “Man of Steel.” However, with the current state of the Dceu and particularly the unknown status of who’s going to play the character, fans are left to wonder what the filmmaker would have brought to the table with his version of Batman.

The Avengers: Infinity War Writers on How They Would Fix The DC Cinematic Universe

Avengers: Infinity War writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have done an incredible job with the films that they've worked on with Marvel Studios. They have a great sense of character and story development. The two recently appeared on Kevin Smith's Fat Man on Batman and while Smith was talking to them, he asked how they would fix the DC Cinematic Universe.

"You guys have made wonderful films about people. You don't make movies about super heroes, you make movies about people who have these powers, and they happen to have these powers. That being said, if somebody offered you a fuckton of money and swayed you to the dark side and said, 'Fix these fucking movies,' how would you fix the DC universe?"

Markus responded with the following:

"I mean, I would look at what Marvel did out of necessity, in that they didn't have their A-list characters.
