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, when Warner Bros. unveiled the screen costumes at the annual Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, along with a bunch of the studio’s movie-related merchandise. As we’ve noted before here (and here!), the looks are inspired by such video games as Injustice, Arkham: Batman, and DC Universe Online as much as the classic comics.

Common is a Grammy-winning rapper, an Oscar-winning soundtrack contributor, and an increasingly prolific actor. Turns out they were all just warm-ups for John Wick: Chapter 2, the new hit sequel that pits Common against Keanu Reeves’s titular dog avenger in the most intensive action the rapper has faced. Common told Yahoo Movies about entering the hyper-violent realm of John Wick, how close he came to playing Green Lantern in George Miller’s ill-fated Justice League movie, and more.
There’s been plenty of talk where the DC Expanded Universe in concerned, especially when we’ll actually see ‘Man of Steel 2′ come to fruition.
Arguably DC fans are most excited to see how the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ turns, hoping it’ll be the turning point where the studio can begin to compete with Marvel for big screen prowess. While ‘Wonder Woman’ is in cinemas next summer and Patty Jenkins’ production is shaping up nicely, it’s perhaps Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ that looks set to be the film that competes with Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ series. With all the buzz around the character, Snyder (who’s directing ‘Justice League’ and is responsible for ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’) has shared a brand new image of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman on Twitter.
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.
DC Comics writer Greg Rucka made headlines recently when he acknowledged what many fans of Wonder Woman have long suspected: that the superhero is bisexual. With that news in mind, we wondered whether her sexuality would be represented on screen in next June’s highly anticipated solo adventure Wonder Woman? “It’s not in the film,” Gadot told Yahoo Movies (watch above) while visiting our studios with her Keeping Up With the Joneses castmates Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher, and Zach Galifianakis.
Zack Snyder has given us the best look yet at the team of super friends joining together for Justice League. The clip features the nearly assembled League — Flash (Ezra Miller), Batman, (Ben Affleck), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) — taking an elevator ride. Ezra Miller’s Flash provides comic relief both onscreen and off.
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.
J.K. Simmons has not only revealed that he’s already finished his work on ‘Justice League’ but he’s also admitted that his role as Commissioner Jim Gordon in the blockbuster isn’t actually that big. Simmons was then quizzed about who he got to spend most of his scenes as Commissioner Jim Gordon with, which led him to remark, “Yeah, mostly with Ben [Affleck]. Which, off the back of the poor critical response to ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’, is probably the nicest thing that ‘s been said about Zack Snyder in a while.
Where ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ failed, ‘Suicide Squad’ is expected to succeed, as its release at the start of August is set to truly kick-start the DC Extended Universe. To do just that it’s already been confirmed that ‘Suicide Squad’ will include an appearance from Batman, but it’s now been heavly suggested that the blockbuster might feature another member of the ‘Justice League’, too. Because it’s been speculated that Ezra Miller’s the Flash/Barry Allen will make his second appearance in the DCU in ‘Suicide Squad’, following on from his teeny tiny cameo in ‘Batman V Superman’.
Back in 2008, when Batman epic ‘The Dark Knight’ swooped into cinemas just a couple of months after Robert Downey Jr’s big screen debut as ‘Iron Man’, comic book fans could never have imagined how successful Marvel’s then-pioneering cinematic universe would go on to be. If you had told anyone that a movie in which Batman fights Superman would struggle to surpass the unspeakably obscure ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ at the global box office, DC acolytes would have cackled maniacally in your face like The Joker after pulling off a particularly cruel and ingenious jape. Christopher Nolan’s Batman films were wowing critics and stirring up huge numbers at the box office while Marvel was still pulling on its power-suit.
Earlier this month, J.K. Simmons basically broke the internet when pictures of his insanely jacked body started to do the rounds online. Was it for ‘Justice League’? Will his Commissioner Gordon beat Batman and Superman in a fight?
During his down time from performing in the show, Eisenberg looked to take in the sights and sounds of the Big Smoke, picking up a Boris bike to travel around the city.

Pictures of J.K. Simmons working out in a Los Angeles gym in preparation of his role in as Commissioner Jim Gordon in ‘Justice League have taken the internet by storm over the last few days. Rather interestingly Williamson insisted that he wasn’t aware if Simmons, who he described as the most natural trainer he’s ever worked with, had got into shape for his role as Commissioner Gordon in ‘Justice League’, refusing to comment on this speculation. Instead, Williamson added, “[Simmons] is just a really good friend of mine, and he’s been training now for a couple of years.
Following the tepid release of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ all Warner Bros. can do now regarding their DC Extended Universe is look to the future. Thankfully they’ve got a lot to keep track of, with ‘Suicide Squad’ due out later this summer, ‘Wonder Woman’ having recently wrapped, and ‘Justice League’s’ production now in full swing, too. Obviously the threat in ‘Justice League’ needs to be rather enormous so that Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Aquaman, and The Flash all have a challenge.
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is one of the brightest spots in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a dark superhero spectacle critics and audiences are otherwise split on. Before the Israeli actress lassoed the role though, there was a lengthy list of other lovely ladies in the mix to finally bring Wonder Woman to the big screen (Friday Night Lights’ Adrianne Palicki got the closest, playing the Amazonian in a failed 2011 TV pilot). Here’s a look at those would-be Wonder Women (with the help of some fan-made art).
‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ didn’t just see the debut of Ben Affleck’s Batman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, we were also introduced to Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, too.

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’. In order for DC to finally catch up to the already dominant Marvel, it was always going to be vital that Zack Snyder’s flick did its best to set-up upcoming universe expansion ‘The Justice League Part One’. Here’s everything ‘Justice League’-related we learned in the film and what it means for the future of the DC movies.
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.
If you thought ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ was big, you aint seen nothing yet as director Zack Snyder is promising something even bigger from 2017′s ‘Justice League’. The core members of the Justice League - DC’s answer to Marvel’s Avengers - are introduced in ‘BvS’, but without giving too much away, they’re still far from being a cohesive unit by the end of the film. - Zack Snyder: Why Isn’t Star Wars Critiqued For Its Death Count?
Just to help you out, from left to right, the picture includes Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) Zack Snyder (Director), Henry Cavill (Superman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Deborah Snyder (Producer), and Ray Fisher (Cyborg).
