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.
With ‘The Flash’ still a couple of years away the casting is gradually beginning to take shape. Billy Crudup - yes, the guy who played Dr. Manhattan in ‘Watchmen’ - will play the pops of hero Barry Allen (aka The Flash), according to Variety. It reunites Crudup with the DC cinematic world after starring as one of the main characters in the Zack Snyder-directed ‘Watchmen’ back in 2009.
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.
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.

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 a positive buzz around the upcoming Ezra Miller-starring ‘The Flash’ movie, attached director Seth Grahame-Smith has left the project.
When Ezra Miller makes his debut as The Flash in the DC Cinematic Universe we will immediately be able to compare him to Grant Gustin’s version on the television show of the same name.
Certain "Arrow" fans would argue that Stephen Amell’s body is a work of art. Well, the folks at DC aren’t about to disagree. The comic purveyors have transformed the TV hunk into this limited-edition Arrow statue, available next month from DC Collectibles for $150.
