Some rumored titles for Zack Snyder’s Justice League recently popped up online, and a few of them sounded just a little bit silly. For a while now, the two-part superhero ensemble has been referred to as Justice League: Part One and Justice League: Part Two, though fans have wondered if Snyder and Warner Bros. might rename the two films, similar to what Marvel is planning for Avengers: Infinity War. That doesn’t appear to be the case, as DC’s Geoff Johns has revealed the actual Justice League title and…well, it’s nothing fancy.

When studios split films into multiple parts, there’s a few options for titles. They can go the simple and effective route of ‘Part One’ and ‘Part Two,’ or stylize it a bit à la Quentin Tarantino and Lars von Trier with ‘Vol. I’ and Vol. II.’ Or they can go the colon route, adding a subtitle that either works well or sounds horrible.
It seems like Justice League must be a ways off; we just got Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice a couple months ago. But the DC Cinematic Universe is kicking into high gear, with multiple movies coming out from now until climate change renders our planet uninhabitable. After Suicide Squad later this summer, and Wonder Woman next June, Justice League arrives in November of 2017. It’s just 18 months a way at this point.
Jesse Eisenberg’s wildly eccentric portrayal of Lex Luthor was certainly one of the more divisive elements of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but whether you loved or hated his take on the iconic Superman villain, you have to admit that the movie was never boring when he was on screen. And it looks like he’s not going anywhere anytime soon, as Eisenberg has confirmed that Lex Luthor will appear in Justice League — or at least Part One, anyway.
Remember when we all pretty much assumed that the Justice League villain would be Darkseid, one of the most powerful beings in the DC universe and a guy who was heavily teased throughout Batman vs. Superman? Ahh, those were the days. As Justice...
In another bit of news that lends credence to the rumors of tension between Zack Snyder and Warner Bros., Ben Affleck has been officially promoted from mere Batman to Executive Producer-Man on Justice League. Snyder is currently in production on the film in London, having begun less than two weeks after Patty Jenkins wrapped principal production on Wonder Woman.
One of the better — and perhaps somewhat undervalued — parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was Jeremy Irons’ portrayal of Alfred, Bruce Wayne’s longtime advisor / caretaker / BFF. Although it wasn’t directly referenced on screen, the official companion book for Zack Snyder’s film reveals that this iteration of Alfred is much more than a butler — he’s a former special services operative with a wealth of knowledge and combat skills. We may get to see Alfred’s talents on display sooner rather than later, as Irons is officially returning for Justice League.
The Batman vs. Superman follow-up, Justice League, quietly began filming in London last week, and while there wasn’t a big splashy announcement, we do have a new and interesting bit of casting. In addition to all the many known cast members both...
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know! This week we're looking at Darkseid, the tiger force at the core of all things! Perhaps the biggest of DC's big bads, Darkseid might be Jack Kirby's most enduring legacy at Detective Comics Comics. In this video, learn the connection between the new god of evil and the legend of Curly's gold, the evilest inhabitants of Apokolips, and the secret of the anti-life equation.
By now you’ve seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and if you haven’t, then you’re still probably well-aware of the Justice League cameos — they weren’t exactly kept secret, after all (Warner Bros. even spilled the details of The Flash’s cameo to EW weeks ago). In any case, it looks like we may see two of those characters team up in a film separate from the Justice League movies, as Batman v Superman producer Deborah Snyder reiterates that #NotAllDCMovies will have the same gritty tone.
