At first glance Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice looked like it was only going to be about the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel. But as we can see based on the subtitle, it’s going to be more than just about the two heroes. For one thing, Gal Gadothas a role as Wonder Woman, as does Ray Fisher who will play Victor Stone aka Cyborg. Given that Gadot is in a three-picture deal, it’s really no surprise that she will be getting her own movie as well as have a role in Justice League. But where does it all fit on the schedule? Dawn of Justice isn’t due out for another year and half, and what about the other heroes? Where do they fit into all of this.
Well a new rumor has popped up, and it reveals that not only does Warner Bros have a schedule laid out for the DC Cinematic Universe, but they have plans laid out until 2018. Sure that may not be as expansive as Marvel Studios who has plans up until 2018, but it is a start, and if successful, WB may be able to finally catch up with their rival. Hit the jump to see what the studio has planned for us.
Kevin Smith is probably the closest person to the production of the now officially titledBatman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, without actually being involved in it, thanks in part to his friendship with Ben Affleck. He was one of the few who got to see the new Batsuit before Zack Snydertweeted it out to the public a few weeks ago. In fact he was the first to confirm that the suit was black and grey, which is a nod to the Batsuit that we saw in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.
But even though he dropped that tidbit a few months back, Smith is dropping even more info about the film’s universe. He hints that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice actually sets up not one, not two, not three or four, but a five or maybe six-part Justice League film. Hit the jump to read what he said.
Warner Brothers Studios has announced that the Man of Steel sequel, known up until now as Batman vs. Superman, will officially be Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. It’s funny how this title is not only a play on the former tentative title, but the official subtitle is also a play on the Justice League film itself – if it’s even called that anymore.
In addition to the title announcement, an official logo for the movie has also been released. You can see that, plus reaction to the title, below.
Outside of a ceaseless parade of casting news there has been little revealed regarding Warner Bros.’ Man of Steel sequel/2016 superhero team-up epic which may or may not be called Batman Vs. Superman (which I will refer to it as for the sake of this article), until now.
Yesterday director Zack Snyderteased the reveal and today he’s not only given us our first good glimpse at the new Batmobile, but he also threw in our first look at star Ben Affleck in full Batman costume, via his Twitter feed.
