As the title declares, this movie has two enormously famous superheroes, and we’re led to believe Justice will Dawn as a result of them facing off. But with a mouthful of a title, we have a little trouble figuring out exactly what kind of movie Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is trying to be. On the surface, it’s a long one. From what I could tell, Zack Snyder wanted to fit both a Batman movie and a Superman movie into its two and a half hour runtime. Those two unraveling entities finally meet up at the end for a bombastic finale that gets tacked on after the fight that the title promises. Individual parts of the movie aren’t bad, but the execution of putting them together leaves much to be desired, and we come out with a movie that is, in a word, a mess.

Russell Crowe May Finally Make Directorial Debut With Historical Drama The Water Diviner

By: Nick Venable It’s been a pretty solid year already for Russell Crowe, having starred in Allen Hughes’ so-so crime thriller Broken City as well as Zack Snyder’s summer blockbuster-on-kryptonite-crackMan of Steel, where he found his inner Marlon Brando to play Superman’s father. I’m pretty sure if a Justice League movie ever gets made, they’ll figure out a way to get Crowe involved. Perhaps by hologram and voiceover a la Superman … Continue reading Russell Crowe May Finally Make Directorial Debut With Historical Drama The Water Diviner

The Hobbit Image Gives Us First Look At Evangeline Lilly’s Tauriel

By: Sean O’Connell From what we’re hearing, Warner might plan to have a trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug attached to Man of Steel when the Superman story opens in theaters on June 14. Makes sense, right? Use one massive blockbuster to help tease your next massive blockbuster, even thought the second Hobbit movie doesn’t reach theaters until December. If you need more clues that Warner has Hobbit news … Continue reading The Hobbit Image Gives Us First Look At Evangeline Lilly’s Tauriel

Zack Snyder Suggests Man Of Steel Will Lead Directly Into Justice League

By:  Katey Rich What do we know for sure about the Justice League movie so far? Honestly, not a whole lot.

Michael Shannon Swears He Won’t Say ‘Kneel Before Zod’ In Man Of Steel

By: Sean O’Connell It’s General Zod’s most-famous line (at least, from the Superman movies): “Kneel before Zod!” Yet Michael Shannon, who’s playing the infamous villain in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel movie, spoils a bit of our Krypton fun by telling VH1 that he doesn’t say the line in the movie. (And man, does he look uncomfortable playing along with host Carrie Keagan’s brand of early-morning chat wackiness …) michael-shannon-reveals-some-man-of-steel-scoop.jhtml#id=1696753 … Continue reading Michael Shannon Swears He Won’t Say ‘Kneel Before Zod’ In Man Of Steel
