Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) are getting together a bunch of their new super friends for (what DC and Warner Bros. hope is) a crime-busting good time in the upcoming Justice League, slated for Nov. 17. While we've glimpsed the new members in trailers and brief interludes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we haven't really gotten a clear look at Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) until today.
Yahoo Movies has the exclusive first look at DC Collectibles’ upcoming line of premium, screen-accurate 12-inch statues based on the Justice League lineup. The meticulously detailed poly-resin sculpts were designed in coordination with Warner Bros. and present our best look yet at the costumed characters who make up DC’s premier hero team: Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Each piece, mounted on a Justice League stand, will retail for $150, be limited to a run of 5,000 copies and will be available timed to the film’s Nov. 17 opening.
IGN were able to get their hands on several images of how Mera’s costume design evolved, which includes a concept picture and production unit still of Heard in the costume taken by director Zack Snyder. Once that was given the thumbs up and gained the approval of the powers that be over at Warner Bros and from ‘Justice League’s’ creative team, Michael Wilkinson and his posse drew concept art of Amber Heard as Mera in the outfit.
Warner Bros. and DC may be struggling to secure positive reviews for their movies (notably recent release ‘Suicide Squad’), but it hasn’t deterred them from starting work on a ‘Man of Steel’ sequel. 2013 saw Henry Cavill don the red and blue suit for the first time but any news on a follow-up has been pretty quiet until now. Instead, the focus was on ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, which was a long and gruelling process alongside new Batman Ben Affleck.
Why stop at Batman v Superman when you can have Superman v Flash or Batman v Aquaman? The cinematic announcement trailer for the upcoming Injustice 2 video game arrived Wednesday, teasing a monumental throwdown among DC Comics’ greatest heroes, including Batman, Superman, Flash, Aquaman, and Supergirl.
Following on from the news that Seth Grahame-Smith has pulled out of directing ‘The Flash’, rumour has it that James Wan is expected to be the next DC drop-out. Birth.Movies.Death report that Wan is about to walk out on production of ‘Aquaman’, starring Jason Mamoa as the sea-dwelling hero. “According to multiple, reliable sources James Wan is feeling a tremendous amount of trepidation about ‘Aquaman’.
After dropping by at WonderCon this weekend, director James Wan had some interesting details to reveal about his upcoming ‘Aquaman’ movie, starring Jason Momoa. With ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ finally in cinemas, focus has shifted to the upcoming ‘Justice League’ and solo movies, especially Wan’s ‘Aquaman’, and he’s been eager to reveal his fresh approach to the often mocked character.
Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg make a magnificent seven. With that in mind, director Zack Snyder says his upcoming Justice League team-up will pay homage to one of cinema’s all-time classics: Akira Kurosawa’s The Seven Samurai. Snyder’s Justice League, the sequel to his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set for November 2017, will be structured in similar fashion.
Still think Aquaman is a joke? Think again. DC Films introduced its cinematic take on the much-maligned superhero during a preview special Tuesday, and this incarnation aims to dispel any lingering notions of Aquaman as the chump of the Justice League. He’s just misunderstood.
Amber Heard is reportedly in discussions to join ‘Aquaman’, with reports suggesting that she will play Mera, the love interest to Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry. The Hollywood Reporter have alleged that the Heard will actually make her debut in Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe in the first ‘Justice League’ film, which is due out in 2017, a year before Aquaman’s solo flick. Amber Heard is a solid choice to appear in the DC Extended Universe, having proven with the likes of ‘Magic Mike XXL’, ‘The Rum Diary’, and, most recently, ‘The Danish Girl’, just how magnetic she can be.
The first look at the new Aquaman has finally surfaced. Zack Snyder, the filmmaker in charge of the latest effort to put DC Comics characters on the big screen, tweeted on Thursday night a photo of Jason Momoa as the King of Atlantis and co-founder of the Justice League. Momoa’s superhero will appear alongside Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Snyder’s upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as a future Aquaman movie.
