Entertainment Weekly writer Anthony Breznican was able to get an early look at Warner Bros. biggest film to date, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In a tweet heard round the world, Breznican took to Twitter to share his thoughts saying if you loved Man of Steel you’ll love Batman v Superman, including its grim/dark look. He even went so far as to say that even the most cynical of fans will tear up when Batman and Superman are together on screen. Touching on Wonder Woman, he said that she is fearsome. Lastly, the fans will have a lot to discuss and fight over.
Among the huge slate announced by Warner Bros. way back, we got confirmation about the entire cast set up to appear in Justice League save one member – Green Lantern. Very little is known about Green Lantern and who will be playing him. Among the coverage from this week’s Entertainment Weekly on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, producer Charles Roven says we’ll see a “fully formed” Green Lantern most likely in Justice League: Part 2. He said, every beat of the movie is not yet worked out and since they are introducing so many characters in Part 1, the best thing to do is wait for the best possible introduction in Part 2.

With only a few weeks to wait for Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice, DC fans are looking even farther ahead with Suicide Squad. Early buzz for the movie is remarkably positive, according to a number of rumors from people who have seen the film. Now, Variety is reporting that behind closed doors, Warner Bros is also so thrilled with the movie, they are beginning to develop a sequel even though one hasn’t been dated as of yet. The report also says that Warner Bros wants it as quickly as possible and are looking for a writer since director David Ayer will be busy with his next project, Bright.

Hey guys, Loving the news of all the new shows coming up!
Thinking about other new things I’d like to see from you I thought “Why not a guest show?” You bring guests on Movie Talk all the time so why not make a special show revolving around these people and what they do, you can bring directors, actors, ask them about the industry and stuff like that. If you had the time and resources, would you do it?
Thanks and keep bringing on the filthy.

Hey Collider crew,
With the upcoming film 10 Cloverfield Lane, producer J.J Abrams is using a first time director in Dan Trachtenberg ( who also happened to co-host a movie type podcast on the internet a few years back ) Do you think Abrams had to hard sell to the movie studio to use a first time director or do you think at this point in time, they pretty much let him do anything he wants?
Keep up the great work,
