We’ve got Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Lois Lane (Amy Adams), Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Alfred (Jeremy Irons) and then some.  Certain main players may seem vital to the Batman and Superman lore, but there’s only so many key characters one film can handle so it’s no surprise that it’s being reported that Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will do away with one.

This is a MAJOR spoiler so you’ll have to hit the jump if you want to find out which very familiar character might not make it into Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice [Last warning!  There’s a big Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice spoiler in this article!]

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Wraps Filming

by     Posted 13 days ago

After nearly eight months of production, it appears that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has finally finished filming.  Production began on director Zack Snyder’s superhero follow-up to Man of Steel back in April, and then today cinematographer Larry Fong shared an image from an icy location with the caption, “That’s a wrap.”  While it’s possible Fong meant only that work in that particular location has wrapped, given that production has been ongoing for nearly the length of a full pregnancy, it makes sense that Batman v Superman would be completed just before the holiday break.  More after the jump.

It appears that we now have a Wonder Woman director, and the choice gives fans of both the comics and filmmaking in general reason to rejoice.  When Warner Bros. first announced it was officially moving forward with a Wonder Woman movie, one of the first directors that immediately came to mind was Michelle MacLaren.  She’s been doing incredible work in television for years, helming notable episodes of Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead, and her move to feature filmmaking has been long overdue.  Some welcome news came a couple of weeks ago when it was reported that MacLaren was actually in talks to take the helm of WB’s Wonder Woman movie, and now word comes that MacLaren will indeed develop and direct the film.  More after the jump.

After directing three Batman films, Christopher Nolan opted to take a step back and serve as executive producer on Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Even though that means Nolan isn’t as deeply involved in the production this time around, he’s still got an opinion on Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman.

Hit the jump to check out Nolan’s first thoughts after finding out Affleck was interested in the role.  Batman v Superman hits theaters on March 25, 2016 and also stars Henry CavillGal GadotJesse EisenbergAmy AdamsLaurence FishburneJason MomoaHolly HunterScoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons.

Christopher Nolan Vetoed a MAN OF STEEL Post-Credits Scene

As director Zack Snyder’s superhero pic Man of Steel approached release, there was a high level of both anticipation and curiosity in the air.  The previous year, Marvel Studios had capped off its Phase One of interconnected superhero movies with The Avengers, which enjoyed both critical and commercial success to the tune of $1.5 billion.  Their experiment worked, and they would continue building out their MCU for years to come.  With Warner Bros., though, Man of Steel was seen as possibly the first piece of a larger puzzle that could lead to the studio’s own interconnected universe of DC Comics adaptations.  How would Man of Steel compare to Marvel’s approach?  Would there be many similarities?

The finished film, it turns out, was actually quite different from Marvel’s output.  It maintained the same dramatic tone of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy even though the films weren’t connected, and there weren’t too many nods to other DC characters.  But the film almost had one big similarity to Marvel’s approach: a post-credits stinger. However, when WB brought up the prospect of adding a coda, Nolan (a producer on the film) reportedly nixed the idea quite strongly.  More after the jump.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Works to Save the Bats

It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes a blockbuster will pick up a charitable cause, and I’m glad it’s happening with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  The film has become part of the “Save the Bats” campaign, and the production has released a video where director Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck and Amy Adams explain why it’s so important to keep these creatures (which I’ve been told aren’t bugs) as part of our ecosystem.  I don’t disagree with that, and I’m glad that Batman v Superman will bring a great amount of attention to this cause; I hope other blockbusters follow suit with their own projects.  That all being said, if a bat flew into my home, I would run away screaming.  The bat would be the new owner of my apartment.

The STAR WARS: EPISODE VII and BATMAN V SUPERMAN War Continues with a First Official Look at the Return of the Millennium Falcon

Directors J.J. Abrams and Zack Snyder have been going back-and-forth online by parodying their respective blockbusters, Star Wars: Episode VII and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Snyder struck the most recent blow by showing a Stormtrooper getting arrested for hi-jacking Batman’s ride.  Abrams has retorted in a way that will be tough to top.  He’s stolen the Batmobile back and placed it on the underside of the Millennium Falcon.  And this isn’t just a cutesy little model.  This is a real shot of the Millennium Falcon with a huge pan and everything.

Hit the jump to check out the Star Wars: Episode VII Millennium Falcon video featuring the Batmobile.  It’s now your move, Mr. Snyder.  May I suggest putting Batman behind the wheel of a Star Destroyer?  Star Wars: Episode VII opens December 18, 2015.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.

New BATMAN V SUPERMAN Batmobile Image Charges a Stormtrooper with Grand Theft Auto

Filmmaker Zack Snyder continues to make excellent use of social media when it comes to teasing fans, with the latest being a new Batman v Superman Batmobile image with yet another Star Wars tie-in.  This is the third such Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Star Wars mash-up, as Snyder previously tweeted a photo of Henry Cavill dressed as a Jedi and another photo of Batman hanging out with R2-D2.  This new image offers another look at Ben Affleck’s formidable-looking Batmobile, as a Stormtrooper is seen being arrested by GCPD for the theft of said vehicle.  It’s clearly a joke, but Snyder seems to be laying on the Star Wars love pretty thick.  Is he simply a big fan, or could those long-ago rumors of a Snyder-helmed Star Wars spinoff have some truth to them?  Whatever the case, the filmmaker’s tied up in the DC universe for the next few years as he’s poised to shoot Justice League directly after BvS.

Take a look at the new Batman v Superman Batmobile image after the jump.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice storms into theaters on March 25, 2016.

It’s been an entire week without any kind of photos from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so how about we blow the dust off with a reveal of Bruce Wayne’s new Batmobile?  Okay then.  To me this thing looks like it was informed both by Christopher Nolan’s films and by the more classic Batmobile designs.  It’s got the militaristic look and jagged edges from the Nolan-verse, but the shape itself leans ever-so-slightly back to the old school design in the way it tapers off in the middle.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The Zack Snyder directed film stars Ben Affleck, Henry CavillGal GadotJesse EisenbergAmy AdamsLaurence FishburneJason MomoaHolly HunterScoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on May 6, 2016.
