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...

New Releases, week of 11/16/13: Turbo Man Edition

This week's home video releases just remind me that I need to see Jingle All the Way again, and the upcoming holiday season is just making that worse (check back with Flixist in December for a big holiday thing). First off there's Man of St...

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...

Superman 75th short screened at NYCC

At the Superman 75th Anniversary panel most of the discussion was on the legend of Superman and the comic book itself, but we got to check out two things from the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release of Man of Steel, which lands on November 12.&nbs...

 
Snyder Excuses photo

Snyder offers up a BS excuse for the end of Man of Steel

The conclusion of Man of Steel was a bit off putting for many people as Superman is basically responsible for the deaths of thousands without blinking an eye until suddenly he cares for a random family in front of him. It's bad ch...

Box Office Numbers: Wossamotta U

Monsters University has taken the top slot for its second week, fending off newcomers The Heat (which came in second) and White House Down (which came in a disappointing fourth). World War Z held steady at third place, and Man of Steel dipp...

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...

Some Like It Hot: Amy Adams

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 ...

Is Superman Dead Inside? photo

Has Superman lost his soul?

Critically, the reception to Zack Snyder's Man of Steel has been all over the place. Although the Rotten Tomatoes consensus says that it is "mostly successful" (something corroborated by our review), it is nonetheless considered Rotten, wi...

Box Office Numbers: Supermeng

Man of Steel topped this weekend's box office to nobody's surprise, raking in a resounding $113m (with an additional $12m from its early release). The super comedy This is the End came in second with a respectable $20m ($32m cumul...

Goyer talks Justice League, WB working on Aquaman

Whether we end up liking Man of Steel or not (Matt's review indicates we'll mostly like it), Warner Bros and DC are using it as the jumping point for the rest of their cinematic universe, starting with a Man of Steel sequel and eventually l...

Should films be changed in response to real-world events?

Low turnout this week, but The (Movie) Question moves forever forward. And it really had to, because this week we unveil the new introduction animation created by community member Jordan Mann, who is awesome. Also, it's in HD. So that's co...

 
Man of Steel Review photo

Review: Man of Steel

I'm a staunch fan of Superman Returns (more on that in a future post), but the rest of the world wasn't so much. Thus, with Marvel dominating the superhero movie scene, DC went back to the drawing board with Christopher Nolan and decid...

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...

Man of Steel 2 already greenlit

Despite the fact that a Superman movie is risky business (we all remember Superman Returns' disappointing returns) it appears DC Comics and Warner Bros. are full steam ahead with the latest relaunch. Deadline is reporting that the posi...

See Man of Steel early and free

Man of Steel is shaping up to be the movie of the summer so you're probably going to see it. Why not see it before everyone else, then? The trailers have been epic, the buzz positive and the Henry Cavill sexy as all hell. We know you'r...

Trailer: Man of Steel

A new trailer dropped last night for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. It uses the General Zod viral video as a starting point and builds out from it to showcase a little of the mayhem to come. Now, I might be in the vast minority here, but I th...

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...

Listen to some Hans Zimmer's Man of Steel score

The video above will play you a sampling of Hans Zimmer's score for Man of Steel. This things usually drop for a lot of movies and we never post about them, but this one is notable because Zimmer is taking over a score for a film series th...

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...

New Superman images confirm a weird looking Zod

That Zod image is weird, right? What's going on there. The rest of the photos from People's recent issue where Henry Cavill (Superman) took the cover don't show us much new, but do confirm the fact that Cavill looks damn good in his Superma...

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...

Man of Steel action figures for Zod and Jor-El

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 ...

New poster for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel

Today on the Facebook page for The Dark Knight Rises, the new poster for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel was posted. It's quite beautiful in its way, and conveys the suspicion that Superman will likely face in the film. There's also a slightly m...
