Yahoo Movies has the exclusive first look at DC Collectibles’ upcoming line of premium, screen-accurate 12-inch statues based on the Justice League lineup. The meticulously detailed poly-resin sculpts were designed in coordination with Warner Bros. and present our best look yet at the costumed characters who make up DC’s premier hero team: Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Each piece, mounted on a Justice League stand, will retail for $150, be limited to a run of 5,000 copies and will be available timed to the film’s Nov. 17 opening.
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.
Jason Momoa posted this gym selfie to Instagram, along with a message to the ‘Justice League’ cast and crew. Justice League has wrapped filming, and Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, commemorated the event in true Jason Momoa fashion, with a shirtless Instagram pic. The actor, sporting a full beard and long hair, shared the black-and-white gym selfie on Sunday, along with a message to the Justice League cast and crew explaining his absence from the wrap party.
Time Warner chairman-CEO Jeff Bewkes told investors Wednesday that there is “a little room for improvement” in the creative execution of Warner Bros.’ DC Comics movie slate. Bewkes said the studio has enlisted DC Comics entertainment president Geoff Johns and production guru Jon Berg to take a firm hand in guiding the upcoming DC releases.

Johns was appointed co-architect of DC Films with Warner Bros. executive Jon Berg after the critical lambasting of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While they came aboard too late to seriously impact this summer’s poorly reviewed Suicide Squad, the executives’ influence will be felt on Justice League, which will team Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg.
This story contains images and plot points from Rebirth. For a master of the universe, Geoff Johns is surprisingly chill, roaming DC Entertainment’s headquarters outfitted in a T-shirt and jeans under the guise of mild-mannered comics guy. Johns, a boyish 43, has been the architect of DC’s television portfolio, which includes Arrow, Flash, and Supergirl.
Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg make a magnificent seven. With that in mind, director Zack Snyder says his upcoming Justice League team-up will pay homage to one of cinema’s all-time classics: Akira Kurosawa’s The Seven Samurai. Snyder’s Justice League, the sequel to his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set for November 2017, will be structured in similar fashion.
Ostensibly, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel. But, as the second half of the title suggests, the Zack Snyder-helmed superhero smackdown also serves as the launchpad for an interconnected series of DC Entertainment-based films, a slate that includes at least a dozen films over the next several years. BvS not only introduces Ben Affleck’s Batman into the same world as Henry Cavill’s Superman, but we also get a big dose of Gal Gadot’s mighty Wonder Woman and quick glimpses of Ezra Miller’s Flash, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Together, the quintet will dawn into the Justice League.
Turns out that the elder superhero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (in theaters March 25) isn’t Ben Affleck’s “older, broken” Batman; it’s Gal Gadot’s remarkably well-preserved Wonder Woman. The new Empire cover story on the film has revealed (via Comic Book Movie) that the Amazon heroine is literally ancient: 5,000 years old, to be exact. Below, a few more new things we’ve learned about Bats, Supes, and Wonder Woman, including tidbits from the Empire story, brand new photos, and two TV spots that delve into the ultimate superhero showdown. Wonder Woman retired prior to the events of Batman v.
Still think Aquaman is a joke? Think again. DC Films introduced its cinematic take on the much-maligned superhero during a preview special Tuesday, and this incarnation aims to dispel any lingering notions of Aquaman as the chump of the Justice League. He’s just misunderstood.
The clip, unveiled Tuesday during The CW’s Kevin Smith-hosted special, DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League, is set to the tune of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and offers a quick overview of the film’s premise. The inveterate troublemakers — Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Deadshot (Will Smith), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Slipknot (Adam Beach), and Katana (Karen Fukuhara) — have been locked deep in the bowels of Belle Reve, an off-the-grid, ultra-max prison.
We’ve been focusing on — and indeed Warner Bros. has been emphasizing — the Batman v Superman showdown aspect of the upcoming DC-based superhero flick. That film, however, has a subtitle: Dawn of Justice. And today, the Justice League dawned online.
