Aquaman’s running time revealed, early reactions draw comparisons to Thor: Ragnarok

Last week, director James Wan took to social media to announce that he’d finished work on December’s Aquaman movie, and now the final running time for the next chapter of the DC Extended Universe has been revealed.

Dark Horizons is reporting that the aquatic adventure clocks in at 143 minutes, which is exactly the same as 2013’s Man of Steel, and the joint-second longest Dceu movie behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at 151 minutes.

Meanwhile, it’s also being reported that reactions to the final cut from test screenings have been very positive, with its tone drawing comparisons to Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok and Ant-Man and the Wasp. If true, it sounds like Aquaman could well please those critics of the Dceu who’ve found some of the previous films too dark and dour.

Aquaman Runtime Seemingly Confirmed

Dceu movies have a reputation for being self-serious, high-stakes works that value outsized conflicts over fun little adventures, and with the exception of the heavily edited Justice League and the relatively laid-back Suicide Squad, this approach is reflected in each release’s beefy runtime. It’s a trend that Aquaman looks set to continue, with a new report suggesting that James Wan’s film will play for a hefty 143 minutes.

The source for this news is a document from distributor Vertical Entertainment that’s been making the rounds, and if this apparent confirmation is the real thing, then we’re looking at a runtime that fits right in with the previous entries in the franchise. At 143 minutes, Aquaman’s length would be equal to that of Man of Steel and a little longer than Wonder Woman (141 minutes), though not quite as bulky as the theatrical cut of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

Zack Snyder Finally Explains That Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Plot Hole

Two years after it came out, fans are still picking apart Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and uncovering things they hadn’t previously noticed about it. The handy thing for DC lovers is that director Zack Snyder often replies to them on social media site Vero, and the latest example of this saw him clear up a plot hole that’d been bugging fans of the movie for a while now.

As you know, the titular battle between Bats and Supes hinges on Lex Luthor’s scheme to kidnap Martha Kent and force Clark to go fight the Dark Knight in exchange for her safety. The thing is, though, why couldn’t Superman have just used his super-hearing to locate where his mother was being kept and rescue her himself?

A deleted scene, it seems, was going to offer an explanation for this. One fan shared an image of

Zack Snyder Hints At A Deeper Meaning In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’s Ending

In lieu of the fabled Snyder cut, DC fans continue to scrabble for information on what director Zack Snyder’s original vision for Justice League was like. The man himself is proving to be an invaluable asset, too. Though he tends not to say much, the filmmaker regularly replies to fans who want to know more about the meanings behind his movies on Vero and now, he’s given us more to ponder about the ending of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

You no doubt remember the final shot of the movie. As we gaze at Clark Kent’s still coffin, the earth above it begins to tremble, which is the smallest hint that the Man of Steel’s not dead for good and will soon be resurrected in Justice League. That did indeed happen, but in the Frankenstein’s monster of a movie that arrived in cinemas, the

Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns Originally Killed Off Batman

Despite every bonkers thing that Frank Miller has said over the last decade or so, despite the iffy sequels and despite realizing that it’s essentially a fascist power fantasy, The Dark Knight Returns is still a damn good comic (and was decently adapted by DC Animation a few years ago). The 1986 miniseries by Miller and Klaus Janson almost immediately redefined what Batman was, and its influences can still be seen all over contemporary portrayals of the hero, most notably in Ben Affleck’s aged and paranoid take in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The comic itself has spawned two sequels, with The Dark Knight Strikes Again being slightly unfairly maligned and 2017’s The Dark Knight III: The Master Race considered a bizarre but enjoyable read. But all that might not’ve happened if Miller had gone with his original instincts when it came to the ending. Those familiar

Ray Fisher Wants Zack Snyder To Direct The Cyborg Movie

Remember a few years back when Warner Bros. merrily released its slate of upcoming DC movies? Due to behind the scenes hurdles and creative redirections, few of those have actually made it to the screen, but some are definitely on their way – The Flash and The Batman, for instance, should both be here by 2022, according to the latest intel. However, one that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere right now is a Cyborg solo flick.

Originally scheduled for 2020, the film would star Ray Fisher, after he joined the DC ensemble in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and had a bigger role in Justice League. The actor himself is naturally 100% up for featuring in his own film, but who would he get on board as director? Unsurprisingly, Fisher remains loyal to the man who cast him as Victor Stone – Zack Snyder.

“I did know about being a part of Justice League.

Comics on Film: 'Wonder Woman 1984' Moves to Summer 2020

In a new demonstrated confidence from Warner Bros. for the forthcoming Wonder Woman 1984, the follow-up to last year’s DC Comics-based hit starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, the release date for the sequel has been pushed back from November 2019 to June 5, 2020. It will be only the second DC Comics-based film since 2013 that will be opening in the prime summer category, since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opened in March of 2016, Suicide Squad in August that same year at the end of the summer season, and Justice League premiered in November 2017. The first Wonder Woman film came out in June of 2017. The renewed confidence in Wonder Woman 1984 may mean good things for both the forthcoming sequel, as well as other DC Comics-based movies that are on the schedule...

Zack Snyder Reveals New Details About Justice League’s Original Ending

If you followed Justice League‘s production from start to finish, then you no doubt remember how it’d originally been planned as a two-part epic with Zack Snyder in the director’s chair. But after Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice didn’t meet the studio’s expectations, Warner Bros. instead went in a different direction and eventually brought in Joss Whedon to reshoot most of the movie.

Although I can understand some of the decisions from a business perspective, I’ll probably never get past how Darkseid was an unfortunate casualty of trimming the story down to a single film. Granted, it did make sense to focus on Steppenwolf and not create any anticipation for the true Lord of Apokolips in a followup that was no longer on the docket, but on the other hand, we ended up with a flick in which the chief antagonist was a subordinate.

Ray Fisher discusses Zack Snyder’s original plans for Cyborg pre-Justice League exit

Although he dismissed speculation back in August that he was no longer attached to the role, Justice League star Ray Fisher recently admitted that he isn’t sure that the Cyborg solo movie will ever happen, and with a Justice League sequel on hold (and unlikely), and the character set to make the jump to the DC Universe streaming service for the live-action Doom Patrol series, it’s fair to say that the big screen future of Victor Stone is very much up in the air at the moment.

During an appearance at New Jersey’s Heroes and Villains Fan Fest, Fisher reiterated that he’s unsure of Warner and DC Films’ plans for Cyborg, although he did go on to reveal that original Justice League director Zack Snyder had a clear vision for the character and where he wanted to take him.

“[What] I will say is Zack had very specific plans for Cyborg,
