It was 1966, smack bang in the midst of the Silver Age of Comic Books, that the idea struck. With the popularity of superheroes old and new once more skyrocketing, the opportunity to capitalise on the public’s renewed interest in comics had grown too great to turn down. And what better way to do so…
From the off the DC Extended Universe has been rushed. So I suppose it’s only fitting that the climax of its first ‘phase’ should be too.
One thing’s for certain: Batman v Superman is categorically not the worst comic book movie ever. Green Lantern and the godawful Fantastic Four (2015) – a film where they seemed to give up halfway through production – are going to take a bit of beating. But it’s also by no means a good film either.
The first image of Jesse Eisenberg as the iconic Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has been released, and he is looking like an all round badass.
Warner Bros. yesterday announced their planned slate for the next six years of DC movies, and there is much to look forward to.
The first official image of Ben Affleck’s Batmobile in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been tweeted by director Zack Snyder, and it looks great, if not entirely dissimilar to Nolan’s from the Dark Knight Trilogy…but militarised with big ol’ guns. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lands March 25th, 2016.
