Snyder Discusses The Heroes Of Justice League

Following the release of the amazing Justice League trailer this weekend, USA Today caught up with director Zack Snyder who was more than willing to share his enthusiasm for this new project - and all its iconic heroes coming together for the first time on the big screen.

"The thing that’s awesome about these icons is that a lot of them we haven’t seen in the movies before on the big screen," Snyder said referring to Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash.

"It’s kinda fun to really let (the actors) stretch their legs and inhabit those characters,” he added. “It is a process to make a team out of this group of individuals, but for the greater good maybe they can put their differences aside."

Snyder then went on to discuss the evolution of The Batman. "He’s been a loner for certainly his crime-fighting career, maybe with the exception of Robin,” Snyder said. “When we meet him in BvS, he’s definitely at this low point of isolation. That was always our intention, that Justice League would be this continuation for Batman to evolve into a more complete hero."

In regards to Wonder Woman, the director says her upcoming movie will "flesh out and realize (her island home) Themyscira and embrace canon with her and get all the elements to mash up that I love from the original stories. But also we’ll see that dovetail into not only the why of BvS, but even now the why of Justice League and who she is finally realized. We know now where she comes from."

Snyder then went on to further discuss the DCEU newcomers. "You have Jason stomping around as this inked hairy man, just this mythic figure. And you’ve got Ezra, who’s full of life and hilarious and all over the place and amazing — a really fun and also poignant Flash. And Ray’s story is in a lot of the ways the heart of the movie."

And what of the Man Of Steel?

"It’s hard to have a Justice League without Superman. That’s how I feel about it," Snyder laughed. "It was always a super-intriguing concept to me to have this opportunity to have him make that sacrifice but also have him be this, in a weird sort of way, the why of Justice League: What do you do now with him? What does the team think? What does the world need?” Snyder said. “All that comes into play. It’s fun for us but it’ll be interesting for audiences what we do with him."

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Starring Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe and J.K. Simmons, Justice League hits theatres on November 17th, 2017.

Deadpool 2 Scribes On Lack Of Release Date

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick confirmed that the highly anticipated Deadpool sequel has yet to receive an official release date, but they admit that this has helped them when it comes to writing the film.

"We’re very close to a draft that we’ll go off and shoot in a couple of months and we couldn’t be more thrilled," Reese revealed. "We don’t want to put the cart before the horse, and often times with release dates that happens."

"You end up racing and you end up being forced to do something you’re not happy with and the great thing about Deadpool is we spent a career trying to duck other movies…. I think in most cases, people are going to have to duck us. Fox is probably going to be able to drop that thing on a date and everyone else is going to scatter, because no one will want to come out the same weekend."

"The fact that Deadpool came out in February and did as well as it did, and you are seeing similarly the summer [movie season] start earlier in March, and movies succeed in October and so the date to us doesn’t mean as much as it used to. I think the studio feels the same way. We just want to make the best movie possible and Deadpool will find an audience, we feel at this point."

The trade then went on to ask the duo what the odds were that Hugh Jackman could make a cameo in Deadpool 2 - despite being recently finished with the role of Wolverine.

"Oh my gosh, that’s one we haven’t heard. That’s not a bad idea. I like that. Deadpool lives in a world where Hugh Jackman is out there. He’s got the People’s Sexiest Man Alive cover that he staples to his forehead in the first movie, so maybe he could meet Hugh as Hugh. That would be really funny."

Fox currently has three release dates set aside for Marvel projects in 2018.

Could Deadpool 2 end up occupying one of those spots?

Arrow Promotes Katie Cassidy To Series Regular

Katie Cassidy is making her DC TV return in a very big way!

The actress has been promoted to a series regular on Arrow moving into Season 6. She will be taking up the role of Black Siren in the final two episodes of Season 5, and will return to the part in the Fall.

"One of the things that most excites us about Arrow is that we go where the story takes us.  Last year, the story took us to the tragic death of Laurel Lance.  This year, our midseason finale reintroduced us to Laurel’s doppelgänger, Black Siren," executive producer Marc Guggenheim said in a recent statement. "We were so taken by Katie’s fearless interpretation of this character that we knew her story was not yet finished. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Katie back to Arrow as Black Siren, though as her appearances on Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow this season show, she never really left the family."

The last time we crossed paths with Laurel's Earth-2 doppelganger, she was locked up in an ARGUS facility after trying to kill Felicity. Currently, it is unknown what Cassidy's return could mean for the current Black Canary, Dinah Drake.

Before she returns to Arrow, fans will meet up with Laurel once again in the Season 2 finale of Legends Of Tomorrow, which airs on April 4th.

So, what do you think, Infinite Earths fans?

Are you excited to see more of Black Siren on Arrow next season?

We know we sure are! Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8pm.

New Tomb Raider Images Are Here

Thanks to Vanity Fair, we have three official images of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in the upcoming MGM reboot of Tomb Raider. And judging by the images posted below, it's pretty clear that this new movie is taking inspiration from the 2013 video game from Crystal Dynamics.

Vikander recently told Vanity Fair: "When I was asked to take on this role I got really excited—Lara Croft is a truly iconic character.  I think people can identify with her for lots of different reasons, but for me I very much see her as a model for many young women. She’s trying to carve out her place in the world and connect her future with her past. She also has a fantastic mix of traits—tough, smart, vulnerable, plus she’s kick ass! She is also uniquely different to other characters I have taken on previously. It's a lot of fun trying to get into Lara’s head and the challenge of getting to grips with such a physical role is an element of this project that I find an absolute thrill."

Check out the three official images posted below...

Tomb Raider is directed by Roar Uthaug and stars Alicia Vikander, Walton Goggings, Daniel Wu and Dominic West. The movie hits theatres on March 16th, 2018.

Power Rangers Morphs To A Box Office Win

Dean Israelite's Power Rangers morphed its way to a box office win this weekend, exceeding expectations and proving that the world is still in love with Saban's classic heroes.

The movie raked in $40.5-Million here in North America despite some fierce competition from Disney's live-action remake of Beauty And The Beast. Heading into its first weekend, the movie was expected to bow somewhere within the $30-Million range.

Combined with the $18.7-Million brought in from overseas and Power Rangers currently sits at a worldwide total of $59.2-Million. If that's not exciting enough, the movie also nabbed an unexpected A rating on CinemaScore and is attracting scores of fans who grew up watching the original television show, which was first introduced to North American audiences back in 1993.

Starring Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin, Becky G, Bryan Cranston, and Elizabeth Banks, Power Rangers is playing in theatres now.
