Most of the build-up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has focused on star Ben Affleck and his new version of Batman, the introduction of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) to the DC Movie Universe, and the direction of Zack Snyder. There hasn’t been a ton written about or with Chris Terrio, the film’s co-screenwriter who won an Oscar for his work on the script for Affleck’s Argo. But in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal, Terrio discussed his work on the film, and on the larger series of DC movies he’s contributing to.

Last week we learned that Jena Malone’s secret role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had been cut from the theatrical release, though her scene (which is presumably brief) will be restored for the Ultimate Edition on Blu-ray and DVD. But you won’t have to wait until that version hits shelves to find out who Malone is playing in Zack Snyder’s superhero epic, since it looks like Warner Bros. has accidentally spilled the beans.

It’s only been four years since Christopher Nolan concluded his Dark Knight trilogy, so when Zack Snyder announce Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there were some understandable rumors that Christian Bale might be reprising his superhero role. Since Snyder’s film effectively reboots Batman, Bale reprising his role as the caped crusader was never really plausible — but the director did consider giving Bale a different role in the film.

Ever since Warner Bros. revealed that first promo image of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman at Comic-Con a couple of years ago, we’ve been anxiously waiting for our chance to see her on the big screen. The trailers have only gotten us more excited, as Gadot’s superhero looks to be one of the most interesting things about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And although she’s making her debut in a movie about two other iconic superheroes, Gadot wants fans to know that Wonder Woman isn’t there to support those guys or service their story.

‘Batman vs. Superman’ TV Spot: Alfred Thinks Bruce Is Getting Too Old for This, You Know

by Britt Hayes March 6, 2016 @ 1:45 PM
It’s both cool and a little silly to hear the name “Alfred” come out of Ben Affleck’s mouth, but the brief moments we’ve seen between our new Batman and Jeremy Irons’ Alfred have been one of the highlights of the trailers and TV spots for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The latest spot opens with Bruce Wayne and his most trusted friend bantering about the Dark Knight’s age, though that does not stop him from taking on the Man of Steel later on in the new sneak peek.

Of all the movies-that-could-have-been, Darren Aronofsky’s Wolverine and Batman movies are two of the more curious unmade projects. Before Christopher Nolan rebooted the Batman franchise and inspired a slew of gritty comic book adaptations, Aronofsky was briefly attached to helm a Dark Knight movie based on Frank Miller’s Year One. Much has been written about the project, and in a rare new interview, Miller himself explains what it might have been and why it was never made.

As promised, we have more details on the R-rated Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will hit Blu-ray and DVD later this year. And contrary to the initial assumption that Warner Bros. was trying to capitalize on Deadpool’s success with a restricted version of the superhero epic, director Zack Snyder confirms that the Ultimate Edition exists more as a director’s cut — not an excuse to ramp up the violence and profanity.
