Jared Leto’s Joker will be an important component in Suicide Squad, but we may get to see him on screen before then, as it’s being reported that Leto will make a cameo appearance in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman before he makes his formal debut in Suicide Squad. If the rumor is true, it looks like DC is definitely taking another page out of the Marvel handbook, which isn’t exactly a bad thing. In other Joker-related news, those laughable tattoos from our first official look at Leto in character might not actually be a part of his look.

With a cast filled with villains and antiheroes from all corners of the DC comic book universe, Suicide Squad was already looking like one of the most jam-packed superhero movies of all time before Ben Affleck was reportedly spotted arriving at the film’s Toronto set. Although nothing has been confirmed, this certainly lend credence to the rumors that Batman (or at least Bruce Wayne) will be showing up in David Ayer’s supervillains-on-a-mission movie.
Beyond the recent Batman vs. Superman trailer, we still don't know a lot about the upcoming superhero rumble. Particularly, why are Superman and Batman even fighting each other? It might seem weird to seek superhero movie guidance from an astrophysicist, but when that astrophysicist is Neil deGrasse Tyson, whose voice you heard in the aforementioned trailer, you take notice. Especially when he starts describing the Batman vs. Superman plot and the main crux of the beef between these two superheroes.
Frank Miller hadn’t tweeted for over three and a half years before today. Guess he waited until he had something major to tweet about it. I would say this qualifies:
For better or worse, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel took more than a few pages from the Christopher Nolan school of superhero filmmaking, placing Superman and his foes in a bleak, gray world. The video above asks a very interesting question: What if he didn’t? What would Man of Steel (and the upcoming Batman vs. Superman) look like if Snyder let the natural colors of Superman’s costume and his world do what colors do best?
Rather than create an entirely new Batmobile or simply modernize the caped crusader’s more classic model, Zack Snyder basically took the tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and combined it with the vague shape of the retro model for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We got a peek at the tumbler last year via the first official photo of Ben Affleck’s brooding Batman last year, but now you can get a more thorough look at the hero’s super-vehicle with this new footage.
Despite the Batman vs. Superman trailer leaking online over the weekend, Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder still went ahead with their big IMAX presentation yesterday in over 35 cities across the U.S. and Canada. It should have been the first time anyone saw the trailer, but after the leak, everyone had seen it. So Snyder had to give the fans a little something extra...
Man, it’s just all about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this week. And this movie doesn’t come out for almost another year! You’ve got the first teaser, you’ve got the first posters, and now there’s a new video, from Bleacher Report, that features NBA player DeAndre Jordan touring through Warner Bros. Studios’ Batman exhibit, and getting a special sneak preview of the Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman costumes from Batman v Superman, along with the brand-new Batmobile. It’s not enough that he’s hugely successful and wildly rich? He gets to see the Batman costume before the rest of us too? Lucky son of a gun.
Man, things are just not going well lately for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. First, someone leaked the filmmakers’ plans to release a snippet of the film’s teaser trailer on Twitter to advertise a big premiere event for the rest of the coming attraction at IMAX theaters around the country. Then someone uploaded a grainy bootleg of the trailer, essentially spoiling the big reveal almost a week early. (Warner Bros. later released a high-res version.) Now someone’s defaced the movie’s first posters! Damn internet hooligans! Get off my digital lawn!
Warner Bros. has planned one of the most ambitious trailer launches in history for their upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. On Monday, April 20, fans can attend a special event at IMAX theaters around the country where the new Batman v Superman trailer will debut after a special introduction from director Zack Snyder. They spent this week teasing that big unveiling with previews of the preview on Snyder’s Twitter feed. This was a carefully orchestrated media event.
