Johns: 'Justice League' will address 'BvS' criticisms

By all accounts, Warner Bros.' DC Extended Universe, now three movies in, has struggled to find the same kind of critical footing as Marvel Studios' Cinematic Universe. Since its debut in 2012's Man of Steel, DC flicks have been roundly sla...

Warner Bros moving forward with Man of Steel sequel

Despite its poor critical reception, Suicide Squad broke crazy records last weekend. Because of this Warner Bros and DC Comics have to decided to move along with their plan, good films be damned. But something we didn't see coming along wit...

These Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice posters are badass

So what did you think of that first trailer? The majority seems to swing toward apathy, but I really dug it. It looks a bit weird, more sterile than anything, but I'm hoping that'll ease up during the year. If the film can capture the style...

Batman vs. Superman delayed until 2016

It looks like 2015 is going to get a bit more breathing room. Instead of releasing next year to many fans' distress since the film still doesn't have an official title and seemingly adds more and more Super Friends everyday, Zack Snyder's M...

Jason Momoa in talks for Batman vs. Superman

Although he may have been unsuccessful in joining Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, looks like Reboot Conan has worked his way to the other side of the comic book pond. Joining the recently announced Gal Gadot (as Wonder Woman) Momoa is now...

WB registers terrible names for Batman vs. Superman

While we here at Flixist have been using Batman vs. Superman as a shorthand way of referring to the Man of Steel followup starring Batman, it was never the official title. David Goyer has been simply considering calling it that. There's a v...

Flix for Short: Superman's 75th Anniversary Short

Regardless of what you believe Superman's become in the last few years, Superman is an iconic character for numerous reasons. Above all, Superman's a character that stands for truth, justice, and moral way. To celebrate Supes turning 75, a...

Nolan won't have creative input for Batman vs. Superman

The times, they are a-changing. With Interstellar underway, it seems like Christopher Nolan won't have as much (if any) creative input on Batman vs. Superman. Rather than serve as producer on the film, Nolan is now an executive producer. (W...

Ten possible Batman actors worse than Ben Affleck

So Ben Affleck is going to play Batman in a few years (in a Superman movie no less) and a lot of folks are angry about that for some reason. Despite his Academy Award win and not being terrible for the last ten or so years, some people just...

Man of Steel sequel possibly titled "Batman vs. Superman"

Now that Batman is starring alongside Superman in the Man of Steel sequel, and we've pretty much gotten all of our anger/pity/celebration/confusion out of the way (but expect just a little more of that later this week), what next? It's time...

Superman to team up with Batman in Man of Steel sequel

I'm sure no one guessed DC Comics would take its first concrete steps toward Justice League so soon. But since Man of Steel was a success (despite its problems), I suppose anything is possible now. The sequel to Man of Steel (confirmed shor...

Max Landis also has opinions about Man of Steel

Man of Steel has certainly caused a ruckus with the Flixist staff. Hubes outright hates it, Matt liked it to a certain degree, Alec liked everything but the ending, I love pancakes, but we can all mostly agree that Man of Steel was not rea...

Man of Steel features $2 trillion in overall damage

I'm probably the only person on staff who outright hates Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, which Matt enjoyed but also found problematic as a Superman movie. To me, Man of Steel is a film so joyless and unheroic that it makes Superman Returns see...

With Man of Steel hitting and missing with audiences across the world, I saw the perfect opportunity to write about one of my favorite things in the whole wide world: pretty redheads. Amy Adams is one of those women who really is the whole ...

Mondo's Man of Steel posters are super

Mondo has a such a way with its movie posters that even if you weren't excited for an upcoming film, just looking at one of its pieces will instantly change your mind. Case in point: Mondo's Man of Steel collection. The header above feature...

New Man of Steel images are "the most realistic" yet

Here are a collection of new images (mostly showing Clark's Smallville days) and a disturbingly mis-aligned poster for Man of Steel (which Zack Snyder claims is his most realistic movie he's ever made). But that's not the important thing he...

Snyder confirmed to be asked to direct Justice League

This comes with a big if however, this will only happen if Man of Steel is a success. Seeing as it was received rather well during early screenings, I don’t think this will be an issue. To clear up the confusion, in the recent edition...

Trailer: Man of Steel

Everyone, this trailer for Man of Steel does everything, and I mean everything, right. It gives a better look at the man behind the cape, gives you plenty of quick looks at Superman punching guys real good, Michael Shannon looks as good as...

General Zod has slow internet in new Man of Steel viral

Although this premiered online yesterday, I actually didn't see this until it played during the MTV Movie Awards. While it was just a commercial, it actually made Man of Steel look a lot better than any of the trailers (or weird looking im...

First Superman TV spot is up and away

I can't really get enough of Man of Steel. I'm personally of the opinion that it is going to be a fantastic movie despite not being a love letter to the Richard Donner movies. That's why even though this new TV spot has nothing in it we ha...

Man of Steel receives positive feedback

The Man of Steel has been on an uneasy slope since photos and the trailers were released. No one knows how much influence Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight has spread. It looked like Man of Steel may turn out to be a fairly serious Supe...

Rumor: Batman might not wait for Justice League

Before I start, I am calling this a rumor because there isn't a whole lot of substantial evidence backing this up. Take this with a grain of salt. I'm not calling Batman-on-Film liars by any means; however, let's hope that Warner Bros. even...

Justice League movie depends on Man of Steel

While I really don’t think that Man of Steel will be doing horrible in the box office, it now becomes important that it does well. If it doesn’t do well for some horrible reason, the Justice League movie might not be made. To su...

Man of Steel steals a PG-13 rating...obviously

I hope you weren't expecting too much "grittiness" from a Superman film. Superman has always been a good, clean hero and it looks like that's not changing too much for Man of Steel. Despite Snyder and Nolan's gritty take on the hero, i...

New Man of Steel image features a bored Superman

With the last trailer for Man of Steel establishing that the world may not be ready for a guy with killer frickin' laser beam eyes, this new(ish) photo released by USA Today serves to further prove that people fear Superman (most likely at ...

Man of Steel will release in IMAX and 3D because money

I wish there was more I could say about the situation, but the headline pretty much says it all. Man of Steel, with its "naturalism" and rubber toy Zod, will release in IMAX, 3D, 2D, Smell-O-Vision, Vita-Scope, and Laserdisc formats June 14...

Man of Steel to be 'naturalistic,' says David S. Goyer

I've been excited for Man of Steel for a while now. Although I'm still mad that DC rebooted the Routh version of Supes since he was awesome in Superman Returns. Superman has always been my favorite DC character too. There's something i...
