With Aquaman now in theatres, lets rank the films in the DC Extended Universe. Continue reading “Ranking the Films in the DC Extended Universe”
If you would like to read my review of Batman v Superman, please click here. Those who have seen it (I’m guessing everyone based on how much money it made on its opening weekend), know that it is not exactly a short film. It’s sometimes hard to fathom that it could possibly be any longer, but it will be with the release of an R-rated extended cut later this summer which promises more content, unseen so far from the initial release. One of those things is a deleted scene from near the end of the film (shown below) involving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and whatever else would be considered a spoiler to the few who haven’t seen the original yet. For those who have seen the film, this does explain a few things involving Luthor. I will say that it does answer some questions for me and raises a few more. I’m personally excited for the extended cut primarily because I’m curious of what an R-rated Batman and Superman film would look like and for the extra content such as this scene. Like I said, the R-rated extended cut will be released later this summer.
It’s been nearly two years since Superman’s (Henry Cavill) colossal battle with Zod (Michael Shannon) devastated the city of Metropolis. The loss of life and collateral damage left many feeling angry and helpless, including crime-fighting billionaire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Convinced that Superman is now a threat to humanity, Batman embarks on a personal vendetta to end his reign on Earth, while the conniving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) launches his own crusade against the Man of Steel.
If you are looking forward to the release of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice on Friday and also are a big fan of Ben Affleck, then this video may be for you. Now many actors have played Superman in the past but some may not know that Affleck also played Superman, or the actor George Reeves who played Superman in the 1950s TV series “The Adventures of Superman”, back in the 2006 movie “Hollywoodland”. Some genius editor decided to take a trailer for Batman vs. Superman and cut Henry Cavil’s scenes as Superman and replaced them with Affleck’s scenes in Hollywoodland in a video entitled “Affleck v Affleck”. Some were not a fan of his casting as Batman but maybe he would be a better Superman. Maybe this would be a better movie than what will be released on Friday? Watch the video and decide for yourselves.
Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is a big movie (but I didn’t really need to tell you that). There have been many trailers released so far, each full of action and excitement but not really giving too many plot hints (I don’t read comic books so those who do can probably see more than I can). This new “final” trailer appears to offer more than all the others did (they seemed to all be the same, more or less), giving us the best look of Ben Affleck’s Batman, showing him and Alfred (Jeremy Irons) at work. My opinion of him is still undecided (and probably won’t be until I see the movie) because you don’t see that it’s him in the suit so the action stuff doesn’t mean much to me. I’m personally not yet convinced on Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor either. Anyways, it still looks exciting and I am curious about how this connects to future Justice League movies. Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice releases March 25th, 2016.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Everybody already knows about this one but here’s another trailer anyway. This one doesn’t really give much more of the story away but it sure is loaded with action. People seem to be against Superman a little more here. We also get another glimpse of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman without her costume. Some may not have been a fan of Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman (I’m still on the fence) but you can’t deny that it looks exciting. I will say this again (not that you all need reminding), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice releases March 25th, 2016.
On the next page there are some that I’m sure you probably didn’t know about (myself included).
For more of an explanation, please refer here. In that post I talked about a previous trailer for Batman v. Superman and all of its excitement. The reason why I’m doing this is that a new trailer for the movie just came out. It isn’t necessarily a new trailer, it’s a TV spot that features most of the stuff in that previous trailer but there is a little more new stuff that hasn’t been seen yet. The only thing is that it’s all in German. The voices they use are definitely interesting to say the least. Batman v Superman will be released March 25th, 2016.
I’ve been analyzing a lot of trailers lately but I thought this one was deserving. The Batman v Superman trailer was just released and it was exciting to say the least. I’m not completely sure why but Clark Kent/Superman (Henry Cavill) and Bruce Wayne/Batman (Ben Affleck) sure don’t like each other. I’m also not exactly sure what the main conflict is but there definitely was some action involving both main characters. There was also something else that I found interesting but I will let you watch the trailer to figure it out for yourselves. Ever since it was announced that Ben Affleck would be playing Bruce Wayne/Batman, I was a little on the fence and after this trailer, I’m still on the fence. I felt the same way with Jesse Eisenberg playing Lex Luthor and after watching this trailer, I found him terrible but I suppose he still has a chance to redeem himself. Gal Gadot also appeared as Wonder Woman but didn’t say anything here so the jury is still out on that. The trailer did have some excitement but it just wasn’t on the same level as the Civil War trailer (and that’s a discussion for another time). Batman v Superman will be released March 25th, 2016.
