The German Justice League Posters.


It’s been a very Justice League-heavy week and don’t expect the marketing train to slow down anytime soon as we approach November and race closer and closer to the arrival of the biggest DC film to date.  Earlier, Germany’s Blu-ray Magazine has released five brand new collectible covers featuring arguably our best look at five out of the six core League members: Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).  Check the method below.

Batman v Superman v Justice v Suicide Squad v Joker.

San Diego Comic Con is in full effect, and some folks though that with Marvel’s absence, there wouldn’t be that much to cheer for.  Wrong.  The 3 minute and 40 second full length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tore the roof off the convention center in San Diego.  I myself was furiously texting my homegirl Vicki, and screaming at the to of my lungs at my television, when I got a fresh look at the movie.  The 9/11 style opening shows Bruce Wayne’s relation to events of ‘Man of Steel’, and you see his true nature as people flee from danger, and he runs directly into it.  A dead Robin suit, the hint of Doomsday, Superman tearing to doors off of the Batmobile, and the Dark Knight using the man of steel as a skateboard, are all in the extended trailer.  Words can’t describe the excitement, check the method below.

 

The Batman/Superman news isn’t the only thing that DC and Warners had up their sleeve.  The ‘Suicide Squad’ trailer was also put online, in a much more glorious fashion.  In traditional Comic Con fashion, there is a grainy cell phone video, of the trailer, and many a person whooping when the new Joker shows up.

From the logo, to Joker being the antagonist to the character designs, to Amanda Waller (played by Viola Davis) explaining how Superman brought out more individuals with “abilities”… this movie seems a bit more solid than people have given it credit for in the past.  Check the method.

Ben Affleck to Star as Batman in ‘Man of Steel’ Sequel

Superhero movie fans, we have our next Dark Knight. Oscar-winner Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman in the sequel to “Man of Steel,” Warner Brothers has confirmed. Affleck, who recently won a Best Picture Oscar for producing “Argo,” which he directed and starred in, will join Henry Cavill as Superman in the next installment of the Superman franchise. The yet-to-be titled film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who lensed “Man of Steel,” “Watchmen” and “Sucker Punch.” “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman,” Snyder said in a statement. “He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne.  I can’t wait to work with him.” The film will bring Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen, and will also bring back “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

The announcement of Affleck in one of the lead roles followed weeks of speculation about who would play Batman in the hotly anticipated film. After Christian Bale, who starred in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, nixed the idea of returning to the role, a number of actors were rumored to be on board the project, including Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Michael Fassbender.

The announcement was made today by Warner Bros. Pictures  representatives Greg Silverman and Sue Kroll:

We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular super heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some,” Greg Silverman, president of creative development at Warner Bros., said in a statement. “His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.
