‘Justice League’: Why Joss Whedon is Only Receiving a Credit for Writing, Not Directing
After an unspeakable family loss, Zack Snyder left “Justice League” in May and handed the film over to Joss Whedon to complete. However, Whedon was already been working with Snyder to write new material for additional photography. That Whedon was already taking his cues from Snyder in reshaping the film — to say nothing of the “Avengers” credit on his resume — made him the obvious choice to direct the reshoots and steer the film over the finish line.

Since then, “Justice League” producers, cast, and crew have been in lock-step in their message: Whedon selflessly came aboard to carry out Snyder’s vision. Wonder Woman herself chimed in: “This is Zack Snyder’s movie,” said Gal Gadot in an interview with Empire Magazine. “Joss only did a few weeks of reshoots. He was Zack’s guy and knew exactly what he wanted to get.”

Interview [Part 1]: Doug Jones on Playing His Mysterious, Post-Apocalyptic Character in We’Ve Forgotten More Than We Ever Knew

  • DailyDead
Under amazing makeup effects, he stole our hearts as Billy the zombie in Hocus Pocus, warmed our souls as Abe Sapien in the Hellboy films, and sent chills down our spines as one of the Gentlemen on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For his role in We've Forgotten More Than We Ever Knew, actor Doug Jones is not accompanied by practical prosthetics, but he's just as mesmerizing as ever. With Thomas Woodrow's post-apocalyptic film hitting digital and VOD platforms beginning November 21st from The Orchard, I recently had the absolute pleasure of speaking with Jones, and in part 1 of the interview, we dive deep into his new intriguing role that required him to portray an intense paralysis.

In part one of our interview, Jones discusses his intriguing character in We've Forgotten More Than We Ever Knew: a paralyzed man discovered by a man and woman in an empty hotel pool in the post-apocalypse.

'Justice League' Review: DC Superhero Team-Up Keeps It Light, For Better or Worse

'Justice League' Review: DC Superhero Team-Up Keeps It Light, For Better or Worse
For those who loathe Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and they are legion, Justice League will be just the corrective followup they're looking for. Granted, BvS got a bad rap for staying true to the dark instincts of the DC Comics universe from which it emerged. It's just that director Snyder lacked the artistic cred that Christopher Nolan brought to his Dark Knight trilogy, to put it mildly. Instead of the Freudian gloom and doom of the Caped Crusader (Ben Affleck) and the Man of Steel

Batman: Sins Of The Father Brings The Telltale Series To Comics

There’s no doubt in our mind that the video game medium has been kind to superheroes for the past eight years and, more specifically, those residing under the DC Comics umbrella. We say that because, for the longest time, interactive experiences based on our favorite masked characters were often mediocre at best. Let’s be honest, we probably played them because they were all we had to go on.

But in 2009, the paradigm shifted with the release of Batman: Arkham Asylum. Not only did Rocksteady Studios get what makes the Dark Knight tick, but they found the winning formula when it came to actually bringing his world to button-mashing life. Soon after, other fan favorites like Injustice and Batman: The Telltale Series came about, each exploring the DC Universe in their own unique ways.

10 Things About The Dark Knight You Never Knew

10 Things About The Dark Knight You Never Knew
The Dark Knight is one of the greatest comic book movies of all time, ranked among the popcorn cinema elite in fan polls as one of the best movies ever. The penultimate chapter of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy saw Christian Bale's Batman go up against the Joker, portrayed with haunting villainy by the late Heath Ledger, who won a posthumous Oscar for the role. Ledger's commitment to the character is the stuff of legend. But there were plenty of other cool facts behind the scenes, as well.

Katie Holmes skipped the sequel to make a terrible comedy.

Memento filmmaker Christopher Nolan rescued the World's Greatest Detective from the train wreck of glossy camp that was Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin with 2005's Batman Begins, a serious minded reboot adored by fans and critics. Katie Holmes co-starred as Bruce Wayne love interest Rachel Dawes, but the Dawson's Creek
