Rumor: The Zack Snyder Cut Of Justice League Is “Much Longer” And Includes More Cameos

You didn’t think The Batman would be the only DC property mentioned in a 4chan leak now, did you?

Amid chatter that Matt Reeves’ solo movie will be a decade-spanning yarn that pits the Caped Crusader against Deathstroke, the masked vigilante to be played by Joe Manganiello, the rumor mill has churned out another speculative tidbit – only this time, the focus has been shifted back toward Justice League.

Now playing in theaters across the globe, Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s team-up movie has been dogged by mediocre reviews ever since its release on November 17th. It looks like things will only get worse before they get better though, what with analysts claiming Justice League will now limp miserably toward a $700 million box office tally, despite initial estimations projecting a billion-dollar home run for the suits at Warner Bros.

But there is an S-shaped light at the end of the tunnel – and no,

Here’s The Deal With Rorschach In Doomsday Clock #1

By now, a good portion of you have probably gotten your hands on a copy of Doomsday Clock #1, whether you’ve made an early trip to your local comic shop or attended one of the release parties at 11:57 pm last night. Either way, DC fans are in for quite the ride, especially when you consider that Superman and some of our other favorite heroes are on a collision course with those originating from the Watchmen universe.

Obviously, there’s the appeal that comes with seeing an eventual showdown between the Man of Steel and Doctor Manhattan, but what of other surviving characters such as Nite Owl, Silk Spectre II, Ozymandias and Rorschach? Well, the first two mentioned have yet to be reintroduced, but it has been made known that Ozymandias’ scheme that was hatched at the end of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ original story was eventually exposed, thus

Ranking the Post–‘Justice League’ Dceu

5) Suicide Squad – Although there have been many compelling arguments in favor of Batman v Superman as the worst Dceu movie, I simply can’t get past how bafflingly terrible Suicide Squad ended up being. Unlike Snyder for Man of Steel and Dawn of Justice, David Ayer was an inspired choice to head up this hard-hitting franchise about an expendable team of villains under the direction of a clandestine government para-military organization. Margot Robbie was an incredibly actress to tap for fan favorite henchwoman Harley Quinn and Jared Leto’s Joker was, at least conceptually, a compelling take on the storied

Blast From The Past: Examining How Justice League Plays On Our Nostalgia

While watching Justice League, you get the sense that it brings an end to the first phase of Dceu movies.

In 2011, the company kicked things off with Man of Steel and now, at last, we’ve come to what fans hoped would be the crowning glory of the Dceu – Justice League, the movie in which the comic book titan’s greatest heroes unite against the threat of Steppenwolf. Unfortunately, it’s proving to be a bit of a disappointment critically, and commercially. Failing to crack even $100 million during its opening weekend, Marvel remains the clear box office frontrunner, but that wasn’t always the case.

DC’s heroes have been standing tall on the big screen since 1978, and as a result, the company has tried to ensure that Justice League pays homage to this rich cinematic history as much as it can. They’ve done this by carefully infusing the

Superman finally joins the Justice League marketing campaign

Now that Justice League is here and the “surprise” – Spoilers – that Superman makes his return to the DC Extended Universe, Warner Bros. has decided to release an updated version of its poster and banners featuring Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel; check them out here…

Superman Added To Alex Ross-Inspired Justice League Promo Photos

For those of us who enjoyed Justice League, one of the major talking points we’ve been discussing since leaving theaters has been that of the return of Superman. After all, the “truth and justice” schtick that we’ve come to love finally reared its head in the DC Extended Universe, offering a sense of hope that some felt it lacked. And even though the Man of Steel was absent from a fair amount of the film’s marketing, the more diehard fans among us knew that his resurrection was to be expected.

One such unfortunate omission was in what happened to be the favorite poster of many, that being the one that channeled the photo-realistic artwork of comic book legend Alex Ross. Having been been plastered all over social media and proudly on display at movie theaters the world over, the group shot we’ve come to enjoy included the likes of Batman,

Henry Cavill keen to “show Superman in his full colors”, contracted for one more DC movie

In the build up to the release of Justice League, Henry Cavill revealed that he felt the resurrected Man of Steel in Justice League is “the first time we see the true Superman” in the Dceu, and now the actor has been talking to The Los Angeles Times about how this sets the stage to tell a definitive Superman tale going forward.

“He’s definitely different from previous incarnations,” said Cavill with regards to Justice League’s Superman. “I feel like this is the natural progression from the end of Man of Steel into what he is now. This is a rebirth of the character, to coin the D.C. comics franchise right now: It’s a refresh. This movie highlights the qualities of Superman that exist in the comic books. That’s something I’ve always been very keen to highlight in the character. This rebirth provided the opportunity

Justice League Actually Made Less Money Than We Thought

Though it was once talked about in the same breath as The Avengers, this past weekend has been a sobering one for Warner Bros. executives. After initial estimates put Justice League at $96 million for its home turf debut, the final numbers are now in and unfortunately, it’s worse than we thought, as the pic only made a measly $94 million in North America.

It’s not a disaster by any means, and this is only $2 million less than what was reported yesterday, but given that Zack Snyder’s superhero tentpole had been tracking for $120 million prior to release, thereby lumping it in the same ballpark as Thor: Ragnarok ($127.7 million), Justice League hasn’t got off to the best of starts. And that’s really been the story for Warner’s mega-movie over the past few days, when the critical consensus deemed the CG-laden epic to be a “big, beautiful mess.

Justice League underperforms even more than previously predicted

  • JoBlo
So Justice League is finally out in theaters! And it's...just barely okay! I mean, I'm sure it has its detractors and defenders, but overall the film has received a generally critical "meh" from most moviegoers. Unfortunately, with the past critical disappointments of Man Of Steel, Batman V Superman, and Suicide Squad (with Wonder Woman as an outlier), this might be the first actual... Read More...

Henry Cavill is contracted for one more Superman movie

Joseph Baxter Simon Brew Nov 21, 2017

Superman actor Henry Cavill updates on the status of his contract, hinting that a more “feel-good” movie appearance is next.

Justice League spoilers lie ahead.

While Justice League‘s $96 million weekend Us debut may have fallen a little below Warner Bros' wishes, it did still prove there's commercial mileage in the series. Further, it re-established Henry Cavill as Superman on the big screen. Given that there had been reports of a possible Man Of Steel 2, it's now opened up a different path for the blue tights man.

And now, actor Henry Cavill has hinted at a more sanguine Superman for the future.

Speaking to The La Times, Cavill reveals that he is currently contracted for one more Superman movie appearance. While he did not specify if it will be fulfilled in Justice League 2 (which, as far as we know, is still on the table,

Is Justice League’s Steppenwolf the worst superhero movie villain ever?

Anghus Houvouras on whether Justice League’s Steppenwolf is the worst superhero movie villain ever…

Yes. Totally. I don’t even think this is debatable. I’m curious to see if anyone steps up to defend the opposing position. Marvel and DC villains have been notoriously terrible. You can name all the good/interesting villains on one hand.

Loki (Thor movies, Avengers) – A no-brainer. Tom Hiddleston has been a gift to the McU.

Zod (Man of Steel) – Not everyone liked Michael Shannon’s mega-intense portrayal of Zod, but I found him interesting.

Zemo (Captain America: Civil War) – Another polarizing choice. For me, the idea of a man seeking revenge for the collateral damage cause by super heroes is interesting and Daniel Bruhl’s quiet, cerebral interpretation of the character was well done.

It’s kind of frightening that there have been over 20 Marvel and Dceu movies and after three villains

Henry Cavill Is Doing One More Superman Movie
With the release of Justice League, DC fans are officially able to welcome Henry Cavill's Superman back to the Dceu. But what does the future hold for the actor and the Man of Steel on screen? There's a lot of uncertainty this point, but Cavill has revealed that he's contracted for at least one more turn as Superman in the Dceu. While we don't know for sure what that movie is going to be just yet, he hopes it's going to be Man of Steel 2.

Warner Bros. has been waiting to see how Justice League performs at the box office in order to determine their future slate of Dceu movies. That being the case, it's hard to say what that final Superman movie will be. During a recent, in-depth interview about Superman, in addition to revealing the length of his current contract, Henry Cavill also expressed the desire to tell a more traditional,

Henry Cavill Is Contracted To Play Superman At Least One More Time

Now that Justice League‘s opening weekend has come and gone, it’s certainly given us much to ponder when it comes to the future of the DC Extended Universe. Admittedly, this writer agrees with the masses in saying that the film was awesome, but it’s impossible to deny that it fell short of financial expectations. That said, we can only wonder when we’ll be seeing more of Superman, whose own cinematic future is yet to be decided.

Regardless of whatever lies ahead, actor Henry Cavill recently confirmed that he’s contracted to play Big Blue for at least one more film – whether it be in a team-up flick or in a solo outing – in a discussion with La Times. Furthermore, he expressed his enthusiasm to do so:

Justice League Now Has The Lowest Domestic Opening Of Any Dceu Movie With “Dismal” $94 Million

Though it was once talked about in the same breath as The Avengers, this past weekend has been a sobering one for Warner Bros. executives after Justice League opened to a measly $94 million in North America.

It’s not a disaster by any means, but given Zack Snyder’s superhero tentpole had been tracking for $120 million prior to release, thereby lumping it in the same ballpark as Thor: Ragnarok ($127.7 million), Justice League hasn’t got off to the best of starts. And that’s really been the story for Warner’s mega-movie over the past few days, when the critical consensus deemed the CG-laden epic to be a “big, beautiful mess.” Ouch.

It gets worse, too. At $94 million, Justice League‘s domestic opening is now the lowest of any film in the DC Extended Universe. Man of Steel kicked things off in 2013 with $116.6 million, before Batman V Superman raised the game with $166m.

Box Office: ‘Justice League’ Comes Up Short With $94 Million U.S. Debut

Box Office: ‘Justice League’ Comes Up Short With $94 Million U.S. Debut
Warner Bros.-DC’s costly “Justice League” misfired with a $94 million opening weekend at the North American box office — $2 million short of the studio’s estimates on Sunday.

The final result caps a disappointing domestic debut that fell far short of expectations, which had been at $110 million before “Justice League” opened on Friday at 4,051 locations. “Justice League” wound up launching with only the eighth-largest opening of 2017 and ranks as the 56th-biggest domestic launch of all time behind 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Jeff Goldstein, president of domestic distribution at Warner Bros., said Sunday there were several positive signs such as a 28% hike in business from Friday to Saturday and the start of Thanksgiving vacations this week. Stakes are particularly high for Warner Bros., which hasn’t revealed the cost of “Justice League” — estimated to be as much as $300 million.

Fans petitioning Warner Bros. to release Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League

While director Zack Snyder certainly has his critics, he’s also got a very devoted fan base – one which has launched a new campaign for Warner Bros. to release his original version of Justice League with a petition on Change.org which has so far attracted almost 60,000 signatures.

“We the undersigned make this petition, because during the last few months, the film Justice League underwent a few changes in terms of composer and runtime,” reads the petition. “Zack Snyder, director of the film, screened Justice League to Warner Bros. executives earlier this year, they where happy with the film, but the director himself felt the film needed something more, he contacted Joss Whedon, director of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, to write a few additional scenes with plans to shoot them over the summer, but an unfortunate tragedy in his family happened and he understandably had to step down,

Movie Review – Justice League (2017)

Justice League, 2017.

Directed by Zack Snyder.

Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Ciarán Hinds, Diane Lane, Amber Heard, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Billy Crudup, J.K. Simmons, and Jeremy Irons.

Synopsis:

Inspired by Superman’s heroic sacrifice, Batman and Wonder Woman assemble a team of heroes to tackle the demonic Steppenwolf.

Lots of big films have troubled productions, but few go through such publicised woes as DC’s latest. Zack Snyder, director of the Dceu’s first two instalments, left the project while it was in its final stages due to a family tragedy, and Joss Whedon was promptly roped in to handle reshoots and to oversee post-production. This was met with mixed reactions from the fanbase ? some were excited because Whedon had managed to craft successful and entertaining ensemble pieces with The Avengers and (to a lesser extent) Avengers: Age of Ultron,

Justice League, Batman's Knightmare & the future of the Dceu

Mark Harrison Nov 21, 2017

A spoiler-y look at Batman Vs Superman, Justice League, and Batman's 'Knightmare'...

This article contains spoilers for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Justice League.

One of the most surreal and oft-discussed scenes in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice comes around an hour into the film, when Bruce Wayne nods off at his desk in the Batcave. The five minute sequence that follows, dubbed 'the Knightmare' (but not the Citv gameshow), is the sum of all Bruce's fears about Superman, showing a dystopian future that could have foreshadowed the future of the DC cinematic universe.

However, these plans have been significantly changed over the course of the 20 months between the release of Batman V Superman and its follow-up, Justice League, by a combination of the vitriolic reception of the former, a frantic course correction on the latter and the real life

8 Interesting Ways That Justice League Sets Up Future Dceu Movies

Much was made in the run-up to Justice League that it would echo recent comics and offer something of a rebirth for the DC Extended Universe, moving the franchise away from the dour tones of Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and morphing it into a brighter, more optimistic future.

But what could the future of the Dceu consist of? Well, Justice League bears a lot of that on its back. By the end of the film, all six Leaguers have been moved into new positions on the board which could be picked up in later outings. Likewise, elements of much wider mythologies such as the New Gods mythos and the Green Lantern Corps are only briefly touched on here, ready to be picked up later down the road.

Granted, Justice League hasn’t been the barnstorming success that Warner Bros. were hoping for, and its
