Justice League Dp Isn’t Sure Whether The Zack Snyder Cut Exists

The Zack Snyder cut of Justice League has quickly become Dceu fans’ holy grail. After the underwhelming, mismatched disappointment that lumbered into cinemas last month, critics and audiences alike tore into a movie that was obviously the product of two conflicting directorial styles (and no small amount of studio interference). We know that some version of the movie was screened to Warner Bros. execs back in the spring of 2017 and apparently, they reacted poorly to it, fearing a repeat of the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice critical evisceration.

Many are hoping that there’s enough of Snyder’s footage lying around for it to be included on the Blu-ray/DVD – with an online petition for WB to release it gaining over 160,000 signatures in just a couple of weeks. But is there even a completed Snyder cut that could be released? Justice League Dp Fabian Wagner isn’t quite sure,

Ben Affleck Is Continuing to Receive Treatment for Alcohol Addiction, Says Source
Ben Affleck is continuing to receive treatment for his alcohol addiction.

“He is continuing after care. It is part of his daily regimen,” a source tells People.

The 45-year-old actor who was photographed outside an L.A. area treatment center on Thursday has been open in the past about his long struggle with alcohol abuse. The actor first checked himself into rehab shortly before his 29th birthday in August of 2001. He received treatment at the popular Malibu alcohol rehabilitation center, Promises.

This March, he announced to his fans on social media that he had gone back to treatment.

Justice League surpasses Logan at the worldwide box office

Justice League may have underwhelmed at the box office, but we do have one bit of good news for Warner Bros., as the DC team-up is not going to finish the year as the lowest-grossing live-action superhero movie.

Going into this weekend, Justice League has pushed its worldwide haul to $625 million, surpassing 20th Century Fox’s Wolverine swansong Logan, which earned $616.8 million earlier in the year. Of course, Logan cost less than a third of Justice League to produce, with a budget of $97 million against the DC blockbuster’s $300 million.

Early reports had claimed that Justice League would need to gross around $650 million to break even, while Man of Steel’s $668 million is the target should it not want to end up the lowest-grossing chapter of the DC Extended Universe. With Star Wars: The Last Jedi now gobbling up ticket sales, it will be interesting to see if it manages to limp to that figure.

Justice League Has A Better Audience Score Than Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I realized pretty soon into Star Wars: The Last Jedi that it was going to be an incredibly divisive movie, at least amongst fans. At times it feels as if Rian Johnson has written his script with the intention of doing the complete opposite of what you’d expect from a Star Wars movie, or any big franchise blockbuster for that matter. It’s certainly worlds away from the cosy, nostalgia dripping fan service of The Force Awakens.

So, predictably, the internet peanut gallery is in a right tizz. The worst is one Facebook commenter saying that the next thing Johnson should draft is his suicide note. Ouch! Perhaps supporting this is the disparity between The Last Jedi‘s Tomatometer rating (93% at the time of writing) and the audience score, which sits at a lowly 57%.

This means that it’s got the exact opposite problem to the winter’s biggest bomb,

‘Justice League’ Dp Talks Zack Snyder’s Cut & Shooting Superman’s Black Suit

Earlier this month, “Justice League” cinematographer Fabien Wagner let it slip that somewhere along the way, footage was shot of Henry Cavill wearing Superman’s black suit. As nerds know, this is a nod to the “Death & Return of Superman” story arc, with the superhero wearing the black costume following his resurrection. However, when he’s revived in the film that hit theaters, he’s in the spandex the iconic hero is known for.

Justice League Dp Discusses Filming Black Suit Superman

Regardless of whether you loved or hated Justice League, we’re all aware of how a fair amount of footage was left on the cutting room floor. Perhaps it was either stuff that was shot by Zack Snyder that Warner Bros. didn’t want to use or, maybe, it just didn’t gel with the final cut; the latter happens all the time in the film industry. Still, there was one omission that remains a hot topic for discussion, that being Superman’s black costume.

For well over a year, many of us who were familiar with the source material expected to see the Last Son of Krypton don some darker threads upon his resurrection, just as he did in the comics. But, in Justice League‘s theatrical cut, the closest we’d gotten to that was him wearing some black slacks.

‘Justice League’ Dp Fabian Wagner on Zack Snyder’s Cut, Superman’s Black Suit & ‘Game of Thrones’

Shooting a massive blockbuster movie is no easy feat, but shooting a film like Justice League is almost a herculean challenge. When it came time for director Zack Snyder to start putting Justice League together as his follow-up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he turned to cinematographer Fabian Wagner to lens the superhero team-up. It marked Wagner’s biggest film to date, but his resume not only features films like Victor Frankenstein but also extensive work on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Indeed, Wagner actually served as the cinematographer on two of the show’s most …

Aquaman Helmer James Wan Debunks Three Villain Rumor, Dishes On The Ocean Master

Aquaman will likely feature two major villains, not three.

That’s the latest piece of intel from James Wan, writer-director on Warner’s maritime (and horror-leaning!) adventure. Chatting to Entertainment Weekly, the former Conjuring filmmaker swiftly debunked allegations that Aquaman will have three antagonists in total: Patrick Wilson as Arthur Curry’s half-brother, Orm (Aka the Ocean Master), Abdul-Mateen as Black Manta, and Dolph Lundgren as the unruly King Nereus.

Turns out that’s not the case, as James Wan wants to gently usher viewers into the world of Atlantis – not bombard them with three fantastical villains and risk overshadowing Jason Momoa’s King of the Seven.

This is what I’ll say: I don’t have three villains. I think that’s ridiculous! I would never go into an origin movie with three villains. We don’t even know the main character let alone the world and its antagonist.

Another Fan Poster For Avengers Vs. X-Men Tees Up The Crossover To End All Crossovers

Avengers: Infinity War, Justice League and Marvel’s Civil War – three mind-bogglingly huge movie crossovers that represent years of groundwork and intricate plotting. But they all pale in comparison to Avengers Vs. X-Men.

Originally dreamed up by Brian Michael Bendis, Matt Fraction, Jason Aaron, Ed Brubaker and Jonathan Hickman in 2012, the comic brought together a whole host of famous faces – namely Captain America, Cyclops, Hulk, Iceman, Iron Man, Magneto, Spider-Man, Storm – for what it turned out to be a crossover event like no other. And thanks to Disney’s newly-unveiled takeover of 20th Century Fox, a film version of Avengers Vs. X-Men may soon become a reality.

It’s yet to be formally announced, of course, and until Disney and Fox iron out the kinks, it’s best approaching any development with a heightened degree of skepticism. Because let’s face it: an acquisition of this size will likely take

First 3 Minutes Of ‘Justice League’ Have Arrived With Henry Cavill’s CGI Face

There are many ways that “Justice League” could’ve started, but we honestly never thought it would be a scene with kids making a podcast. How very #ontrend. The sequence, one of Joss Whedon‘s additions to the overcooked superhero movie, gave the world their first glance at Henry Cavill‘s digitally altered face, and nobody was the same again.

Korea is gearing up for the home video release of “Justice League” next week, and the promotional wheels have turned up the first three minutes of the movie.

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Sets Sights on Becoming the Latest $200M+ Opener

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Sets Sights on Becoming the Latest $200M+ Opener
After a strong performance last month, the December box office is currently pacing ahead of 2016 by 3% while the overall year is still pacing just a bit behind 2016, currently by 4.2%. However, now comes what will surely be the highest grossing domestic release of the year, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The latest film in the Star Wars franchise is looking to become only the fourth domestic release to ever open over $200 million, sure to assist in closing the year-to-year gap even further. Meanwhile, Fox has chosen to once again offer some counter-programming with the animated release Ferdinand. Two years ago they tried a similar tactic when they debuted the fourth installment of the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise against Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Much like 2015, we're anticipating similar results. When forecasting the opening weekend for Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in 2015 it was a rather monumental task as no

Aquaman’s Patrick Wilson still excited over the DC Extended Universe

Aquaman star Patrick Wilson is still excited for the future of the DC Extended Universe.

Wilson is set to appear as the villain Ocean Master in the Aquaman solo movie, to be directed by James Wan. And while the latest entry in the series, Justice League, didn’t go down as well as many had hoped, Wilson is still optimistic about what the future might hold.

Aquaman is one of the DC films that we definitely know is on the way, set to be released next December. And Wilson, speaking to Metro, expressed confidence at the decisions being made regarding DC:

“As they say, there are a lot of different ways to skin a cat. Or to make a movie and a franchise. I can only speak on behalf of being an actor and having a relationship with the directors. As a fan, I sit back and see the choices

The Dceu Is Technically More Successful Than McU After The First Five Films

The new Justice League movie may not have won over the critics in the way that the DC Extended Universe wanted, but this does not mean that it should be written off too soon. In financial terms, the Dceu is actually more successful than it’s biggest rival – the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first five movies from the Dceu have grossed more than $1,600,000,000. The figures from the Marvel films have been adjusted for inflation but still only reach just over $1,300,000,000. This shows that while the films may not have been a hit with critics, they have certainly got

Henry Cavill Says Don’t Sweat About How Clark Kent’s Return Will Be Explained

Superman is back, having been resurrected by motherbox power, and helping to slay the villainous Steppenwolf. So what’s next for the man who wears hope on his chest? Well, according to “Justice League,” he’ll go back to farm life, and presumably commute to work every day to The Daily Planet along with Lois Lane. But wait a minute….as far as his colleagues know, Clark just vanished one day (around the same time as Superman, but hey, no coincidence there, right?).

James Wan Says ‘Aquaman’ Does Not Have Three Villains

With Justice League in the rearview mirror, fans are now looking to next year’s Aquaman to see what else Warner Bros.’ Dceu will bring to the table. The studio made an inspired choice in hiring James Wan, the filmmaker behind The Conjuring and Furious 7, to direct, and indeed Wan was certainly up to the challenge of bringing one of the more difficult comic book heroes to life. The filmmaker was actually given the choice of directing Aquaman or The Flash, and he chose the more challenging route—though given what he went through on Furious 7, this was …
