Just when we thought the future of ‘Deadpool’ was looking rosy, its director Tim Miller has left the project. Deadline have revealed that due to creative differences Miller has left the project, which comes as quite a blow to the beginning of what was shaping to be a lucrative franchise. Having directed the 2015 hit, Miller was on board to helm the sequel which would see Ryan Reynolds return as the foul-mouthed, quick talking merc, Deadpool, but it appears their working relationship is now over.
There’s plenty of hype and anticipation over the future of Ben Affleck’s Batman, especially where ‘Justice League’ is concerned. While Affleck’s solo outing is in the works, we’ll next see the Dark Knight appear in Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’, which is the Avengers equivalent for DC. Speaking to Extra TV on the upcoming superhero projects and about what fans can expect, Affleck teased over the new additions we will see to the Batsuit in terms of tech and gadgets.
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.
With ‘Suicide Squad’ out this week and the mixed reception it’s received, Jared Leto has revealed that many of The Joker’s scenes were cut from the final film. Here, it lists 22 scenes that were edited out of the final theatrical cut of the movie, despite a number of moments that featured heavily in the trailers. For example, there appears to be a lot of scenes contextualising characters and their backstories, such as alleged interview scenes with Boomerang offering his sexist and racist opinions (often to Katana, the character he develops a soft spot for), but, like a supposed moment referring to Slipknot as a serial rapist, these moments were cut from a hard-hitting, gritty version of a comic book story into a (debatable) funner, friendlier film.
‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ cinematographer Larry Fong has changed his opinion on the Ultimate Edition of the DC movie, that gets its home release this summer. Having previously taken a very unambiguous stance on Twitter that audiences who didn’t enjoy seeing ‘Dawn of Justice’ at the cinema definitely won’t enjoy the UE, stating, “Those of you who are fans, will dig it. While this clearly wasn’t the most encouraging of words to anyone who hoped to revisit and ideally get more out of ‘Dawn of Justice’s’ R-rated home release cut (not least Warner Bros.), the cinematographer has since done a 180 degree turn on the matter.
Anyone hoping that the new R-rated cut of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ is going to right any wrongs might be heading for disappointment. Larry Fong, the movie’s cinematographer has answered the question fans have been asking with a succinct tweet, following the release of the trailer yesterday. Notably, this will include Jena Malone’s role, rumoured to be that of either Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City PD boss Commissioner Jim Gordon and the alter-ego of Batgirl, or Carrie Kelly, the female incarnation of Robin.

Since the hype of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ died down, the title on everyone’s lips has undoubtedly been ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’.
