Batman vs. Superman was recently revealed to be two hours and 31 minutes long, pretty lengthy for a superhero movie. But even despite that runtime, director Zack Snyder still had to trim some things out of the movie, namely an extended cameo from late night host Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel and his guest Ben Affleck debuted the footage on last night’s post-Oscars Jimmy Kimmel Live and it seems as if Batman and Superman may have found a common enemy.

Following in the footsteps of previous unlimited passes for films like Spectre and Interstellar, Regal is offering a fans a chance to see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as many times as they want (or until their brains melt and there’s nothing left but the hollow shell of a person). There is a catch, of course: There’s a limited number of these special passes, which will allow you to see Zack Snyder’s superhero epic as frequently as you’d like during the film’s entire theatrical run.
If you’re particularly invested in the stories of Batman and Superman pre-Dawn of Justice, then Warner Bros. is about to test your devotion by offering a new Batman v Superman prequel comic — but only if you buy a bag of Doritos at Wal-Mart and surrender your fingers to bright orange cheese dust. If that seems okay to you, then you’ll be rewarded with a digital prequel story that helps set the stage for Zack Snyder’s upcoming film.
One of the stipulations when Ben Affleck signed on to star in Batman vs. Superman was that his Argo writer, Chris Terrio, would come aboard to help fix the script. Though Terrio was indeed brought in to rewrite the script (originally written by David Goyer), it seems Affleck still was not happy with it. According to a recent report, Affleck spent each day rewriting that day’s scenes until they were up to snuff. Oh, and he did it dressed as Batman.
Just a couple of months ago, a foreign website offering pre-sale tickets for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice appeared to have the official runtime for Zack Snyder’s superhero epic, clocking the film at a lengthy 151 minutes. In addition to confirming that runtime, Warner Bros. has released a few new character posters, giving Alfred, Lex Luthor and Lois Lane their very own one-sheets.
Like single-cell organisms slowly complexifying and dragging themselves out of the primordial soup that was early Earth, details on the hotly-anticipated upcoming Justice League movie have begun to collect. Some specifics of the film were self-evidently obvious from the start — there will be a league, they will spread justice, the usual cast of characters including Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) will appear — and some were revealed right out the gate, such as that the Justice League project will screen in two separate parts, both of which will be directed by Zack Snyder. Now, Warner Bros. has set progress on their hopeful Avengers competitor in motion. An exclusive over at Entertainment Weekly breathlessly relates that Justice League will commence principal photography on April 11.
A (very) brief clip from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has arrived online, offering another look at the new Batmobile from Zack Snyder's upcoming superhero showdown epic. The clip is part of the film's international marketing, and features Batman speeding through a tunnel in his newly-redesigned vehicle, and shows off just how fast and furious this thing can get.
While much of Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent’s origins remain faithful to well-known iterations of the characters, at least one person’s backstory in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is getting a makeover. Zack Snyder has given Batman / Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler Alfred a bit of a promotion, upgrading him from devoted servant and caretaker to former British Special Air Service officer with expertise in weapons, vehicles and various other useful skills.
Zack Snyder recently revealed that he sought and received Christopher Nolan’s blessing for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (though it really sounded like Nolan just didn’t care), but he wasn’t the only one looking for approval for the upcoming superhero epic. Ben Affleck says that he also went to his Batman predecessors — not for their blessing, but for some helpful Bat-tips.
There are three sides to every fight, but in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice there are only two sides: Justice, and…justice. The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel simply cannot agree on how to properly deliver said justice. It’s all a matter of perspective, you know? If that’s not clear enough, these new posters for the upcoming superhero showdown illustrate the concept of perspective, showing you the two sides of this fight.
