Justice League Is the Highest-Grossing Box Office Bomb …

They say that numbers don’t lie, but that isn’t always the case when it comes to the box office. Since its release almost a month ago, Warner Bros.’ Justice League has pulled in $212.8 million domestic (10th highest this year overall) and $615.4 million worldwide (12th highest this year), but a new report contends that Justice League has become the “highest-grossing box office bomb” in cinematic history. While that distinction seems oxymoronic at worst, and facetious at best, there is some logic within this notion regarding this DCEU movie. ThisRead More


DC Movie Lineup Announced: Justice League 2, Cyborg & M…

Before Justice League hit theaters in November, there had been reports that if the movie had tanked, it could very well alter the course of the DCEU as a whole, with one report from October claiming the Flashpoint movie won’t happen if Justice League bombs. Justice League debuted with the lowest opening weekend in the DCEU’s short history, and with $212 million domestic and $613.3 million worldwide, it likely won’t surpass any of the three DCEU movies before in in either box office category. During Warner Bros. presentation at ComicRead More


Justice League Might Get An Extended Cut, But It’s Prob…

The DC Extended Universe is a tricky place. With the exception of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, all of the installments have been a bit divisive, with reviews ranging from lukewarm to downright frigid. Justice League is certainly an improvement from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, reshoots and studio intervention resulted in a bit of a disjointed final product. Since then, fans have been petitioning for Zack Snyder’s original cut of the film, and now it appears that an extended version may be on its way, but not in theRead More


One Place Justice League Is Absolutely Crushing At The …

Differing global tastes can see a film fall short of expectations domestically, only to find its audience overseas. Pacific Rim for example made $101.8 million domestically on a $190 million budget, but a $309.2 foreign haul has allowed the franchise to continue on. The Transformers films are also another interesting case in that domestic box office has continued to dwindle while overseas audiences still can’t get enough of the Bay-hem. Money counts the same no matter where it comes from and movie studios are in the moneymaking business. While weRead More


Black Suit Superman Scenes Were Shot for Justice League

Yes, Superman in his black suit was filmed for Justice League. The question has finally been answered, but we’re probably never going to see the footage. Justice League was released last month to mixed response from critics and fans, but a lot of that has to do with the clashing visions between Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon, who was brought in to do rewrites, reshoots and see the movie through the editing process. That meant a lot of Snyder’s vision wound up on the cutting room floor. Including Superman’s blackRead More


14 Wild Ideas Found In DC’s Early Justice League Script

Desaad Fights Killer Croc In A Shark Tank You read that correctly. One of the earliest set pieces in this unused Justice League script involved a battle between Darkseid’s henchman, Desaad, and longtime Batman baddie, Killer Croc, in a LexCorp shark tank. The sequence would’ve seen Killer Croc take a massive bite out of a shark in the middle of the battle, and come to a head with Desaad murdering the scaly-skinned Batman rogue and making off with a stash of Kryptonite obtained by Lex Luthor to take down Superman.Read More


One Big Reason Justice League 2 Still Needs To Happen

26 minutes ago When Warner Bros announced its initial slate of DC Extended Universe movies in late 2014, Justice League 2 was among the bunch, and at the time the plan was to release it in 2019, two years after its predecessor. Justice League 2 was taken off the schedule last year, and now following Justice League‘s underwhelming commercial run in domestic theaters, as well as receiving mixed reviews overall, the sequel doesn’t seem to be as sure a thing anymore. Justice League certainly left several hanging plot threads toRead More


Justice League Superman Is Closer to the Comics Says He…

With Warner Bros.’ Justice League currently in theaters, star Henry Cavill has been speaking about his portrayal of Superman. The actor recently revealed in a new interview that he thinks his portrayal of Superman is closely matched to the Superman comics from DC. Here’s what the actor had to say in an interview for the book Justice League: The Art of the Film. “For me, [Justice League] in particular has really drawn closer to the Superman character who we know and recognize from the comic books. I’ve enjoyed playing thatRead More

Additionally, this deleted scene would have helped further connect Justice League with Batman v Superman. One of the more bizarre aspects of the latter was Bruce’s Knightmare sequence, where he saw an evil Superman ruling over the planet as a dictator, with an army of Parademons at his disposal. The nightmare/vision was never really addressed in Justice League, but it looks like the original cut helped to bring this plot line to a close. When asked to join Steppenwolf, Superman would have seen the same vision, and realized what wouldRead More


A Darker Justice League Cut Test Screened, Here’s What’…

Warner Bros.’ Justice League still managed to perform well, despite a middling critical reception and the lowest box office opening weekend of the four DCEU movies released so far. Shortly after the release, a group of fans put together a petition for Warner Bros. to release Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League. While many have said that this cut doesn’t exist in any proper form, it appears there is an alternative cut for the movie that doesn’t have as many jokes. During his new Fatman on Batman podcast, filmmaker andRead More
