Justice League has landed and so it’s time to talk about all that we liked and didn’t for the latest DCEU film. Synder and Whedon brought together DC Comics’ most iconic heroes including Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash,  Cyborg, and Aquaman! Did the movie pull it off or is a bust for Warner Bros?

Then it’s all Wonder Woman as we take a deep dive into the superhero’s first live-action movie. We talk Gal Gadot, Patty Jenkins, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, special effects, plot points, that one scene (yeah, you know which one), and finally, our personal grade for the DCEU’s fourth installment.

SH S3E19: Wonder Woman Review

SH S2E7: Suicide Squad Enters the DCEU

The next movie in the DC Expanded Universe hits theaters this weekend but the Screen Heroes crew was lucky enough to get an early screening. In this episode we spend the first portion providing some spoiler-free thoughts on Suicide Squad! Then, we’ll break before entering into extreme spoiler territory! So, if you haven’t seen it yet, join us for a bit, then see the movie and listen to the rest. If you’ve seen it, listen in and let us know your thoughts on Suicide Squad. We talk characters, casting, plot, special effects, and how it fits into the overall DCEU plans with Batman v Superman and Wonder Woman.

This episode, due to the timing of the topic, was not recorded live.

SH S2E7: Suicide Squad Enters the DCEU

Batman Vs Superman: Breaking Down the New Set Photos

Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is less than a year away.  Little by little new information gets released to us.  The nerds are awaiting patiently. But we want more. We’re all on the edge of our seats for the next tidbit. The tension is palpable.

Well, we got more than our little geek hearts could handle.  Warner Bros. and Entertainment Weekly released these photos earlier.  And I’m going to break them down for you.

Batman vs Superman - Henry CavillLet’s start with my favorite one.  Just by the environment, we can tell it’s taking place in a Latino neighborhood on Day of the Dead.  Superman is striking a very classic pose, however his face is filled with concern.  The people are practically falling over themselves trying to touch him (I’d do it too, but probably for other reasons not related to the pictured situation.)  He’s clearly a god to them, to all of us.  Just one touch would change them.  Maybe it would be the proof they needed of the impossible.  Maybe it would fulfill an unbelievable desire to hope.  For whatever reason they want to touch him, he’s not resisting or fighting them off; he’s letting them do it.

Batman vs Superman - Bat SignalThis one is also pretty cool.  The beautiful blues that fill the scene perfectly set the mood.  Even without the bat signal shining, we would know that’s Gotham. Why? Because it’s always night time in Gotham, and rarely has clear skies.  Duh.  There Batman stands, in what appears to be his Superman-battle-ready-mechsuit.  But it doesn’t look like the bat signal was for him.  I think it’s an easy assumption that the light was meant for someone else, maybe the man the mechsuit was made to take down.  I will say that even though I’m on board with both the batsuits we’ve seen so far, I am not loving that bat logo.  It’s just not as imposing as ones of the past.  It doesn’t have that darkness and terror to it. What do you think?

Batman vs Superman - face off

 

Oooh! I was right. I’d be totally okay if they kissed right now.  I can tell that’s not the mood, they just don’t have the ‘kiss me’ eyes, but still. I digress.  Stare down between the knight and the god!

Batman vs Superman - Affleck behind the scenesFinally a behind the scenes shot!  Of course it’s our Batman, Ben Affleck, and director, Zack Snyder, but look closer.  That vehicle behind them is absolutely destroyed!  This is the remains of a battle scene.  That’s not car wreck wrecked! That’s Zod and Kal duking it out in Metropolis wrecked!  And there’s an older, worn out Bruce Wayne (see you can tell because he’s not wearing the cowl).  He is sporting some graying temples that put Mr. Fantastic to shame.  We’ve never seen this Batman, or Bruce, before.  They keep saying that he’s going to be weary of the world and of Superman, but I’m still not sure if the audience will be fully prepared to the extent they’re planning on taking that story line.

Batman vs Superman - Bruce Wayne and Wonder WomanWhat a gorgeous shot of Gal and Ben.  There’s always an occasion for Mr. Wayne to get dashingly fancy, but why Wonder Woman?  How does she play into this?  Is she an unsuspecting bystander, just another victim of the Bruce Wayne charm?  Very doubtful.  Whatever kind of party this is, be it charity event or what have you, she is there for a purpose.  She could be just as suspicious of Superman as Bruce Wayne is.  She could be the link they need to quell their feud.  She could be there to get down with her bad self.  We don’t know! I do know, however, that she is giving Bruce the cold shoulder.  You go, girl.

Batman vs Superman - Entertainment Weekly coverAnd there they are!  Your Batman vs Superman stars!  And Wonder Woman is front and center! Believe it or not, that is both intentional and meaningful.  Even if her part in the film isn’t as large as one might hope, she will be important to this story and the people behind the movie know it.  Also, this is a huge merchandising jab at Marvel.  While the Avengers tend to forget about the ass-kicking Black Widow, DC is assuring you that Wonder Woman is just as necessary as the boys behind her.  What would the sacred Trinity be without her to hold them up?

Batman vs Superman - Lex LuthorAnd then there’s this. Why? Why? Can we have one Lex Luthor without a hair plot line?  They’ve done it various animated incarnations and it works just fine. Just…stop. Nope, nope, nope.

 

What do you think about the new images from Batman vs Superman? Any of them get you excited? Or disappointed?  Let us know in the comments!
