Yahoo Movies' sneak peek at Lego Justice League sets, based on big-screen action — revealing a few previously unknown plot points, characters, and vehicles
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.
Denzel Washington and Viola Davis may have the biggest Oscar buzz, but there is simply no Fences star cuter than the drama’s precocious young star Saniyya Sidney. Sidney, who has also appeared in Roots and American Horror Story, recalled her reaction to first hearing about the film, a family drama set in 1950s Pittsburgh and based on the Tony Award-winning play by August Wilson.
In a podcast last week, as he was offering his critique of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, inveterate comic nerd Kevin Smith noted something about the performance of Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader: “He moved the way that Batman moves and fights … [it was] the best cinematic presentation of Batman fighting you’ve ever seen in a movie. It looked like the video game, almost.” Smith was onto something with that tossed-off remark, something that explains the polarized reaction to film. Batman v Superman is more relatable as a video game.
With less than a month to go before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in theaters, clues about the top-secret plot — especially the cause of the titular acrimony between two of DC Comics’ marquee heroes — are at a premium.
The final Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer has arrived and it gives us more of an inkling of why Batman is v-ing Superman, while also showing us Lex Luthor oozing evil and revealing more of Wonder Woman’s devastating power. From there, we get more some background on why exactly Bruce Wayne is concerned about Superman (Henry Cavill).
With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad on the horizon, DC has two of the year’s most anticipated films. Yahoo Movies has an exclusive sneak peek at DC’s inaugural line of highly detailed, virtually photorealistic figures created using 3D sculpts of the films’ stars. “We’re not holding anything back,” Geoff Johns, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, tells Yahoo.
We’ve been focusing on — and indeed Warner Bros. has been emphasizing — the Batman v Superman showdown aspect of the upcoming DC-based superhero flick. That film, however, has a subtitle: Dawn of Justice. And today, the Justice League dawned online.
Between Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (due in theaters March 25) and the 50th anniversary of the campy Adam West-powered Batman TV series (it debuted on Jan. 12, 1966), the brickmeisters will be releasing four different sets centered on the Caped Crusader. First up is a trio of models based on Batman v. Superman that just hit stores this month. Then there’s Kryptonite Interception ($30), which includes the Dark Knight, his tricked-out new Batmobile, and a bunch of Lex Luthor’s henchmen.
The DC superheroes are ready for their close-ups. Clearly unafraid of Star Wars’ mighty grip on the cultural conversation, on Wednesday, Warner Bros. and DC had the three main stars of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice post new posters featuring their characters to social media. There’s not a whole lot of new material here to take in or pick apart, but Ben Affleck did provide a closer look at Batman’s wicked new armor, which looks like Ironman’s Hulkbuster suit with even more impressive abs. #BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/seVdBBMh7x— Ben Affleck (@BenAffleck) December 16, 2015 As for Superman, we already know what his costume looks like, but are still impressed by Henry Cavill’s jaw line and perfectly cleft chin.
The big reveal in Wednesday night’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer was the introduction of a big bad in the form of Doomsday.
Sure it’s called Batman v Superman, but you didn’t think the titular heroes would spend an entire movie slugging it out?
Now we have our first look at the Comic-Con International exclusives and previews based on next year’s anticipated smackdown: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Watch out, Ken. The new doll line, in stores in spring 2016 to coincide with the March 26 release, will also include Batman and Superman. Meanwhile, Mattel will be selling an exclusive Comic-Con action figure set, based on the film’s trailer, depicting the initial, contentious encounter between the titular heroes.
Set in a dystopic alternate universe, 'Justice League: Gods & Monsters' is a new digital-first comic series from DC. Here's a sneak peek.
If the first teaser is any indication , Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are on a serious collision course in next year’sBatman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice . But what if previous incarnations of those two iconic superheroes got in on the battle?
“As science fiction meets history of art, time meets an inexhaustible desire for mythology which is within each of us.” So writes photographer and artist Sacha Goldberger in the introduction to his Super Flemish series of Hollywood heroes and villains photographed in the style of 17th century aristocrats. To which we would then add, “And besides, the Hulk looks surprisingly elegant in ruffled collar.” The collection, which includes 39 pieces in all, was recently unveiled at an exhibition at School Gallery Paris. While the bulk of the characters featured are from the Marvel (Captain America, Iron Man) and Star Wars (Darth Vader, Yoda, and Leia among others) universes, DC Comics (Batman and Robin) and Disney (Cinderella and Snow White) also get some love.
