Update: Early reports that suggested Zack Synder’s ‘Justice League’ could clock in at 170 minutes appear to be unfounded. The Wrap is reporting that the film’s runtime has not been finalised yet, adding the “filmmakers aren’t close to knowing the precise runtime as of now.” Although IMDB lists the film’s runtime at 2 hours 50 minutes, it’s worth pointing out that – like Wikipedia – pages can be edited by users and so data on a film’s page isn’t always foolproof. Original story: Anyone who was a bit concerned by the tone of the ‘Justice League’ trailer, should perhaps look away now. ...
The first official trailer for ‘Justice League’ made its way online, but the reaction has been mixed. The heroes that make up the Justice League (bar Superman, of course). While we’d seen footage of Warner Bros. and DC’s upcoming superhero ensemble before, this was the first proper trailer unleashed, and it packed a huge amount into two-and-a-half minutes.
As well as giving us our first proper look at the team in action (including a curiously Iron Man-esque Cyborg, played by Ray Fisher), this trailer also gives us our first brief glimpses of some other new characters, including Amber Heard as Mera, and JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. There’s also a quick glimpse of Amy Adams as Lois Lane – although, as necessitated by the ending of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ one rather notable absentee is Henry Cavill as Superman.
In preparation for the ‘Justice League’ trailer, a new snap of Ben Affleck’s Batsuit for the DC superhero bonanza has been revealed. And it all looks a bit less brooding, and a bit more chirpy than the hulking outfit he was given for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’. Here it is in its full glory… And compare it to the rather more sober garms he wore in BvS… This ‘tactical batsuit’, as it’s being dubbed, is more trim, his bat ears look a bit smaller, and with its grey bat logo, generally feels a little brighter than past iterations. ...
Thankfully, there’s already a tease of what’s to come, with Aquaman getting his own mini teaser. It’s cool, it’s impressive and it’s apparently the first of five teasers to come before the full trailer is revealed on Saturday.
This November’s ‘Justice League’ will see the introduction of a new Commissioner Jim Gordon to the DC Extended Universe – but it sounds like it will be a pretty short introduction. JK Simmons, who will make his debut as the time-honoured ally of Batman in the superhero ensemble piece from ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman V Superman’ director Zack Snyder, has revealed in a new interview that he won’t be in the film much. Reintroduction might be the better word, given that Commissioner Gordon has been a staple of the ‘Batman’ movies, played by the late Pat Hingle in the Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher movies, and most recently by Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy.
Zack Snyder has revealed a new clip from ‘Justice League’. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very small clip from what’s likely going to be an action-packed almost-debut for the character in the upcoming ‘Justice League’ movie.

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.

Connie Nielsen’s Queen Hippolyta and Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will make appearances in “Justice League,” TheWrap has learned. According to Warner Bros.’ 2017 movie press kit, the studio has confirmed that Nielsen and Eisenberg will be in the upcoming DC Comics movie.

This claim comes from The Wrap, who simply state that “a member of the Green Lanterns Corps. This line-up has counted several humans over the years, including Hal Jordan (as portrayed by Reynolds), John Stewart and Guy Gardner. It is anticipated that more than one of these characters will appear in ‘Green Lanterns Corps,’ due from Warner Bros in 2020.
During an interview with The Guardian, the 61-year-old actor revealed that his upcoming role in ‘Justice League’ is just the beginning… and will be a lot bigger in Aquaman’s solo movie. “Well, Justice League is very particular because it’s an ensemble movie and my character is being introduced here in order to be a principal role in Aquaman,” he said. A long-time recurring character in the ‘Aquaman’ comic books, it looks as though his role is likely just a cameo in ‘Justice League’.
It’s official - ‘Justice League Dark’ is going a bit darker. No, not the live-action ‘Justice League Dark’ movie which began life with Guillermo del Toro - we’re talking about the new DC Universe Animated Original Movie, which will be led by none other than Matt Ryan as John Constantine. Appearing online via IGN, the Official ‘Justice League Dark’ trailer gives us an impressive look at DC’s latest animated offering.

During an interview with Variety, 68-year-old ‘Batman V Superman’ star Jeremy Irons revealed that the upcoming Batman solo film will begin shooting next year. Asked about his role in ‘Justice League’, he replied: “Similar [to ‘Batman V Superman’], but then, of course, Ben’s going to make a Batman film next summer. “In the ‘Justice League’ we have seven major lead characters and I’m the butler to one of them,” he added.
With his dog by his side, his long neck wrapped up in a maroon scarf, Jeremy Irons settles into a drab Midtown Manhattan conference room. He pushes his wiry frame into a plastic chair and turns his steely gaze at his interviewer. It’s raining outside — well, spitting — and he’s had to deal with... Read more »
Arguably DC fans are most excited to see how the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ turns, hoping it’ll be the turning point where the studio can begin to compete with Marvel for big screen prowess. While ‘Wonder Woman’ is in cinemas next summer and Patty Jenkins’ production is shaping up nicely, it’s perhaps Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ that looks set to be the film that competes with Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ series. With all the buzz around the character, Snyder (who’s directing ‘Justice League’ and is responsible for ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’) has shared a brand new image of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman on Twitter.
It seems that Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ solo movie is shaping up to be something quite different from the (admittedly few) existing DC Extended Universe movies. Since the biggest complaints of the DCEU’s launch pad films ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ (and to a lesser degree ‘Suicide Squad’) is that they were far too downbeat, it seems that all at Warner Bros/DC have been eager to push a more light-hearted, optimistic outlook in their future films.
Production has wrapped on upcoming superhero epic ‘Justice League,’ and from the look of things Aquaman actor Jason Momoa celebrated the wrap with many libations. A quick look at Momoa’s Instagram reveals no shortage of pictures of the musclebound star posing merrily with his director Zack Snyder, co-star Ben Affleck and members of the crew, all holding aloft bottles of Guinness.
Yes, the Justice League and the Power Rangers are set to cross over in a new six issue mini-series to be co-published by DC Comics and BOOM! Studios. It appears the Power Rangers in question will be those of the 1990s TV series, as opposed to the new incarnations from the upcoming movie, as these are the characters used in the existing ‘Power Rangers’ comics from BOOM! Studios.
IGN were able to get their hands on several images of how Mera’s costume design evolved, which includes a concept picture and production unit still of Heard in the costume taken by director Zack Snyder. Once that was given the thumbs up and gained the approval of the powers that be over at Warner Bros and from ‘Justice League’s’ creative team, Michael Wilkinson and his posse drew concept art of Amber Heard as Mera in the outfit.
