‘Batman v Superman’ Trailer Leaks Early

UPDATE:

So after the failed attempt at keeping the Batman v Superman trailer a secret, Zack Snyder went ahead and released the real, HD version on Twitter.

Enjoy it in all its #notpirated glory.


Sorry Zack Snyder, guess that 21 second teaser/announcement you gave us for the upcoming Batman v. Superman was not enough to hold fans over until Monday’s official debut.

Thanks to a sneaky person who got to see the complete trailer a few days before the rest of us, the new trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice has been leaked. Originally, like Snyder’s teaser revealed, the two-minute trailer was set for a massive IMAX debut this upcoming Monday (April 20), many of which were already sold out.

While for a short while the trailer was available on YouTube, Warner Bros. is currently on the offensive taking all the videos down, but don’t fret because tons of torrent site like the one we have the link for, still have the video up.

In the trailer, we get to see what began this so-called feud between the iconic DC superheroes.

Following the events of Man of Steel, people begin to turn on Superman, going so far as to deface his status with the words “False God” written on it in blood-red paint.

We also get to finally see Ben Affleck’s Batman make his debut, all serious and stuff. Batman in his new costume and glowing blue eyes, proceeds to ask his new foes “Tell me, do you bleed?” And with one last warning or more of a promise, he tells Superman, “you will.”

Chilling.

Check out the trailer here which is choppy, blurry, and has subtitles, but still, it’s something.

Warner Bros. Announce DC Entertainment Films Among Others

DC Comics has officially taken the war against longtime competitor Marvel Comics to the big screen.

Marvel has seen success in recent years thanks to the big screen adaptations of some of their beloved characters like Iron Man, Thor, and of course The Avengers as a whole. But today, Warner Bros. made an announcement that might result in Marvel and their parent company, Walt Disney, watching their back.

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tuijihara announced plans for their DC Entertainment properties this morning which included ten DC movies to be released between 2016 and 2020. Three Harry Potter spin-offs and three Lego movies were also announced.

The on slaughter of DC movies will begin with the much-anticipated and talked about (#Batfleck?) Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice set for a March 2016 release date. Originally, the film was supposed to be released in May 2016, but Warner Bros. decided to move up the date to avoid competition from Marvel’s Captain America 3 reportedly due out around at that time.

In August, Warner Bros. had announced nine untitled releases for those years and now we have the official names for each film.

UPCOMING DC COMICS/ WARNER BROS. FILMS (2016-2020):

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
Suicide Squad – directed by David Ayer (2016)
Wonder Woman  starring Gal Gadot (2017)

Shazam – Dwayne Johnson said he would be playing Black Adam(2019)
Justice League Part Two – directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
Cyborg starring Ray Fisher (2020)
Green Lantern (2020)

Aside from the DC Comics, Warner Bros also announced three Harry Potter spin-offs which are set to be released in 2016, 2018, and 2020, respectively. The films will follow the book series/ film franchise’s mythology based on author J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them novella.

The first of three films will act as Rowling’s debut as a screenwriter and will be directed by Harry Potter director, David Yates.

The Lego Movie which saw major success earlier this year, will also be coming back with three movies over the course of four years. Ninjago in 2016, followed by The Lego Batman Movie in 2017, and The Lego Movie 2 in 2018.

Today must be a good day to be involved in a superhero franchise because two big pieces of superhero news have been revealed. 

Earlier in the day, we found out that after months of speculation, Channing Tatum has been chosen to take on the role of Gambit in a future X-Men film. No specific film has been given yet, but it’s beginning to sound like his apperance will happen in the next film for the franchise, X-Men: Apocalypse.

But why let Marvel have all the fun today (this eveing also marks the season one finale of Agents of SH.I.E.L.D.) when you can reveal your own big news, right DC Comics? 

Man of Steel director, Zack Snyder took to Twitter earlier in the day to reveal the official costume for Ben Affleck’s Batman (Batfleck?). The costume will be put on display in the upcoming, Batman vs. Superman film, though we are not sure if they will leave the title the same when it comes out in May 2016. 

The dark image, shows the caped crusader in his outfit, but the ears of the mask are a little shorter than what we are used to seeing. Snyder continued his Batman Twitter Takeover by teasing the first image of his version of the Batmobile which should be revealed tomorrow, according to his trolling.

The only thing we really need now is Wonder Woman’s official costume…and some kind of sneak peek at the story line. We’re just saying.

New Justice League Member Role Cast

When it was announced that Ben Affleck would be taking the place of Christian Bale as Batman for the ‘sequel’ to Man of Steel, the whole world it seemed rioted against the choice in actor.

Affleck, who previously played Daredevil in the 2003 film adaptation of the comic, was not welcomed by fans when he was chosen to take the role that Bale had portrayed for six years.

Today, it was revealed that another member of the Justice League had been cast and it’s one of the roles that had several female actress line-up for; the role of Wonder Woman.

Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman director, Zack Snyder took the internet to reveal that Israeli model turned actress, Gal Gadot would be putting on the iconic blue, red and gold costume made famous by Lynda Carter and modernized by Adrianne Palicki in the never-made-it-to-air Wonder Woman series by The CW.

“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe,”  Snyder said in a statement. “Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”

And like all things, fans took to social media, mostly Twitter, to address how they felt about the casting decision. Gadot’s bio lists Fast & Furious 6Fast FiveFast & Furious and Knight and Day as some of the films she had acted in.

No matter what the opinion is, looks like Gadot will in fact be Wonder Woman in the film that is slated to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
