The latest trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is more like “BATMAN!!!! (And Oh Yeah Superman Too).”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Does Bruce Wayne know any other emotions besides brooding, or any other facial expressions besides “righteous scowl”? This is perhaps one of the greatest unanswered questions of the modern, grittier era of Batman. And judging by this new photo from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the answer appears to be: nope.
Zack Snyder caught a lot of grief from some Superman fans who complained that his version of Man of Steel wasn’t true to the character. Specifically the wanton destruction of Metropolis and, oh yeah, snapping General Zod’s neck. Classically Superman...
Over the years, Batman has had some highly iconic themes. From the opening song of the classic 1960s ABC series to Danny Elfman’s instantly recognizable theme from the Tim Burton films, the many Batman adaptations have always included memorable music. With Batman vs. Superman fast approaching, we’re about to get a new addition from composer Junkie XL, who partnered with composer Hans Zimmer for the film’s score. Today, you can listen to the new Batman theme from Batman vs. Superman and see how it stacks up against some of the old classics.
Actor Scoot McNairy stars in Batman vs. Superman, this much we know. His casting was announced and there are photos of him on set filming scenes from the movie. What we don’t know is who he plays in the film. We’ve heard reports that McNairy is playing everyone from The Flash to Metallo to Jimmy Olsen. It turns out none of those are true, because now we actually know McNairy’s top secret Batman vs. Superman role. An
For the past year or so, Hot Toys has been teasing life-size statues of its licensed figures from the Marvel, Star Wars and DC Comics universes. Though the gigantic pieces have typically been "display only" and never put up for sale, there was always a feeling Hot Toys was taking the temperature of fan interest in taking a giant Chris Evans or Hulkbuster home. Given Hot Toys' adoration of Iron Man, many speculated a life-size Tony Stark would be the first to make the leap to the consumer market. That's not the case however, and today Hot Toys surprised everyone by revealing the life-size Armored Batman as the first in this new 1:1 scale series. Now I've stuck up for the look of this suit despite my general feelings of malaise towards Dawn of Justice, and that holds true to this larger version as well. The armored batsuit is well-designed armor outfit that's hard to find fault with... to a degree. It's pretty damn accurate to the comic it's based on, and like I've said before, it maintains Batman's striking silhouette even though it's a giant metal suit. When kept at the 1:1 size ratio, which makes Batman here a hefty 6' 4", the more questionable design elements stand out a bit more. I'm talking about that cod piece.
Judging by images alone, you would think that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is actually just a clothing catalogue for privileged vigilantes and alien superheroes. There’s so much pensive staring and gloomy brooding and handsome, chiseled faces in nice jackets and expensive button-ups. All that’s missing is a caption with a price tag and one-click ordering.
Christopher Nolan delivered a solid trilogy of Batman films (okay, two really good Batman movies and a competent sequel we begrudgingly accept) and inspired a wave of gritty blockbuster imitators. His Dark Knight trilogy gave us the best Batman movies since Tim Burton’s time with the iconic superhero, which made fans feel a little skeptical about Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck’s plans for the character. In an attempt to soothe your fears — however reasonable and totally justified they may be — Snyder has revealed that he received Nolan’s blessing for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. So that’s something, right?
It’s a crying shame that Marlon Wayans locked down the title Fifty Shades of Black for his low-rent spoof film set to debut this Friday. That could’ve been a tidily apt label for Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero crossover Batman vs. Superman, a film...
At least part of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman movie takes place during World War I, which would indicate that at least some of her solo adventure serves as a prequel. But before we get to that film, Gadot will make her debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where — according to new details — she’ll find herself pulled out of retirement to fight once again. In addition to the latest intel on Diana Prince, we also have some new images from the epic superhero film, including one that appears to tease DC supervillain Darkseid.
