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.
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.
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.
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.
In an interview with Hey U Guys, while appearing at the Showmaster’s Film & Comic Con in Glasgow, the actress who played Lois Lane in the original four movies was asked why fans tend to return to Richard Donner’s classic original, over the more recent efforts from Zack Snyder and Bryan Singer. “Superman responds to women by saving them, saves the children and beats up the bad guys, if you will.
Sure it’s called Batman v Superman, but you didn’t think the titular heroes would spend an entire movie slugging it out?
Zack Snyder may be helping to build and oversee a multi-billion dollar comic book movie empire, but like the DC heroes he directs, the 49-year-old filmmaker still has time for the little guy. As he puts the finishing touches on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and preps to unleash chaos on Gotham, Snyder is helping Doritos end its mega-successful Super Bowl advertising campaign with a bang.
Ben Affleck had some doubts about playing Batman — until director Zack Snyder explained that the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice character would be a different kind of Dark Knight. “Initially I thought, ‘I’m older, it doesn’t seem like the right sort of fit for me,’” Ben Affleck told Empire Magazine for their new cover story (via Comic Book Movie). “Then Zack pitched me his concept for this older, more broken, kind of f—d up Batman.
