The reviews for 'Justice League' are beginning to drop, and broadly, it sounds like it's not great news for the DC Extended Universe.
Predominant reviews aggregator site will not release score for comic book movie until Thursday, more than 24 hours after review embargo lifts.
"You don't do it forever," actor remarks of the iconic DC superhero he plays for the third time in 'Justice League.'

While $300,000 (about £236,000) is more money than most people could hope to make in several years of nine-to-five graft, for a lead role in a superhero movie, it's peanuts.
Since her breakout role as Tyra Collette on the beloved television drama Friday Night Lights (#ClearEyesFullHeartsCantLose), Adrianne Palicki has participated in some grand-scale productions. As Baby, Baby, Baby hits DVD and Digital HD, Palicki dropped by Yahoo Studios for a Facebook Live interview (watch above) to tell us all about her new indie, plus her idea for a FNL spin-off and what she thinks went wrong with her failed Wonder Woman pilot. Palicki got to explore her artsy side in Baby, Baby, Baby.
Common is a Grammy-winning rapper, an Oscar-winning soundtrack contributor, and an increasingly prolific actor. Turns out they were all just warm-ups for John Wick: Chapter 2, the new hit sequel that pits Common against Keanu Reeves’s titular dog avenger in the most intensive action the rapper has faced. Common told Yahoo Movies about entering the hyper-violent realm of John Wick, how close he came to playing Green Lantern in George Miller’s ill-fated Justice League movie, and more.
One triumph of The Lego Batman Movie is its ability to simultaneously satirize and celebrate the legacy of the Dark Knight, a rich history spanning eight decades of comic books, TV shows, and, especially, films. From Will Arnett’s Christian Bale-inspired gravelly growl to callbacks to the 1940s serial, The Lego Batman Movie is overstuffed with cinematic references and inside jokes. The pilot immediately calls out the Joker, pointing out how his previous big-screen endeavors were thwarted by the Caped Crusaders, alluding to both 2008’s The Dark Knight and 1989’s Batman.
Part parody, part paean, The Lego Batman Movie lovingly plumbs the depths of the Dark Knight’s rogues gallery to reward long-time Bat lovers — and perhaps confound casual fans. The Clown Prince of Crime has recruited a who’s-who of fellow felons, among them such major big-screen miscreants as Riddler, Catwoman, Penguin, Bane, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, and Poison Ivy, as well as Suicide Squaddies like Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, and Captain Boomerang. Yes, Condiment King is real.
The Lego Batman Movie arrives this week, gleefully poking fun at the Caped Crusader and his Dark Knighthood. But before Bats gets funny, he’ll be his typical gloomy self in the aptly titled Justice League Dark.
Why did “Jingle Bells” get this particular spoof? Spike Jones’s uptempo romp, Yogi Yorgesson (“Yingle Bells“), and the Three Stooges (“Jingle Bells Drag“) showed that “Jingle Bells” could be played for broader comedic effect. As writer Rob Weir documents on his blog, children began applying funny lyrics to the song’s simple rhymes and familiar melody at least as early as the 1950s, while wildly racist versions sprung up in the South in the 1950s and 1960s during the Civil Rights Movement.
Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s The Flash movie has hit another big speed bump: sources tell Variety that director Rick Famuyiwa has left the project.
Remember that mid-credits scene in Suicide Squad? The frosty meeting between Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) ends with her handing over a folder full of metahuman files and him issuing a warning about her Task Force X, of which he definitely does not approve. “You should shut it down. My friends and I will do it for you.” And with that fans began drooling over the thought of a future film.
Today, we got our initial look at Amber Heard in character courtesy of a photo taken by director Zack Snyder and provided to IGN along with some striking concept art and sketches by the film’s costume designer, Michael Wilkinson.
DC Comics writer Greg Rucka made headlines recently when he acknowledged what many fans of Wonder Woman have long suspected: that the superhero is bisexual. With that news in mind, we wondered whether her sexuality would be represented on screen in next June’s highly anticipated solo adventure Wonder Woman? “It’s not in the film,” Gadot told Yahoo Movies (watch above) while visiting our studios with her Keeping Up With the Joneses castmates Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher, and Zach Galifianakis.
Zack Snyder has given us the best look yet at the team of super friends joining together for Justice League. The clip features the nearly assembled League — Flash (Ezra Miller), Batman, (Ben Affleck), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) — taking an elevator ride. Ezra Miller’s Flash provides comic relief both onscreen and off.
