My Favorite Scene: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2015) “Bruce in the Battle of Metropolis”

 

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s theatrical cut is a mess.  It doesn’t even make coherent sense.  The R-Rated cut does make sense, and improves the film, but doesn’t fix the underlying problem that Warner Brothers put too much into a film that only needed Batman and Superman.  They begin it beautifully.  They pull an absolute masterstroke by taking one of the biggest criticisms of Man of Steel (the mass collateral damage during the film’s climactic battle between Superman and Zod), and placing Bruce Wayne right in the middle of it.  He watches as the fight between the Kryptonians claims the Metropolis branch of Wayne Enterprises and holds a new orphan in his arms as he balefully glares up at what caused all of it.  THAT WAS ALL THEY NEEDED.

Trailer Time: Justice League Teaser #1 *First Look from Comic Con 2016*

Right on the heels of their release of the first full trailer for Wonder Woman, DC has released the first teaser trailer for Justice League as well as the first look at the full team, official synopsis below:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot will be reprising their roles as the DC Trinity, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.‘ Justice League, and joining them are Jason Mamoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as The Flash. Amber Heard is set to play Queen Mera in the film as well before moving to the solo Aquaman movie in 2018, with Willem Dafoe appearing in a mystery role, and J.K. Simmons playing Commissioner Gordon.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Justice League will debut in theaters on November 10, 2017.

Movie Review: Batman vs. Superman – Dawn of Justice: Ultimate Edition (2016) *Does 30 More Minutes Make it Good?*

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman, Superman, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill
In a year that’s given us a lot of great films already, there have been a few disappointments, but none more so than Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.  The first pairing of the biggest characters in comics was a befuddling, out-of-character, mess with plot holes you could throw Doomsday through.  It’s an unfortunate start to the DCEU.  I’m an optimist about the recent reshuffling in the creative powers that be, and that Warner Brothers appointed Geoff Johns to run the DCEU as Kevin Feige does the MCU is an encouraging sign.  When it was announced, that there would be an R-Rated version of the bloated BvS that would add 30 minutes onto it’s running time (which is now 3 hours 2 minutes if you’re scoring at home), most assumed it was a cash grab to try to eke more money out of the film WB has dubbed a financial disappointment.  Before we go any further, spoiler warnings below.

How Tall is Your Favorite DC Character? Fantastic Comic Art!!!

DC Height Comparison
From DC and Costume Collection, comes this great piece showing exactly how tall the members of the DCU are.  From Robin to Swamp Thing, you can figure out exactly where you rank.  I am Aquaman.  This leaves me somehow feeling less cool than we did the Marvel one and I ended up in the company of Nick Fury and The Punisher.  But…..hey…..trident!  How exactly did they determine the heights?  I’m so glad you asked….and I will be lazy and let them tell you: Continue reading How Tall is Your Favorite DC Character?
