The fifth instalment in the DC Extended Universe, following on from 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League sees Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) recruit The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) after the selfless death of Superman (Henry Cavill) to restore faith in a now very down-beaten humanity. Directed by Zack Snyder, the team must face an even great enemy as they must save the world from the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf (voiced by Ciarán Hinds) and his army of Parademons.
(This week I took a trip to my local Showcase cinema to watch the new release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Thanks again to Showcase Cinemas for asking me to host a game of #OscarsBingo. By playing, I won two free cinema tickets, which I used today.)
Directed by Zack Snyder, the follow-up to 2013’s Man of Steel and the second instalment in the DC Extended Universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sees Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) share the screen as the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs. Two years after Superman’s battle with Zod, which left the city of Metropolis in ruins, the collateral damage has left many feeling angry and helpless. Fearing that the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the Man of Steel, convinced that Superman is now a threat to humanity, while the conniving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) launches his own crusade.

The summer blockbusters are coming to an end for 2015, and with a few big releases still left for the rest of the year, we’re already eager for 2016 to get a move on. One of the most anticipated films we can’t wait to see is DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, just to see how DC do in the battle of the superhero films.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Man Of Steel is the latest superhero blockbuster that follows DC‘s comic book character Superman. His return to screen tells the origins of his story, as a young boy, Clark Kent (Henry Cavill), learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. Journeying to discover where he came from, the soon-to-be hero must figure out what he was sent here to do if he is to save the world from annihilation when it is invaded by a member of his own race, General Zod (Michael Shannon), and to become the symbol of hope for all mankind.

Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton is in final negotiations to lead in Noam Murro‘s 300 prequel, it has been announced this week.
The apparently untitled prequel (Or 300: Battle of Artemisia as most are naming it), will tell the story of Greek General Themistocles, who leads Athens against Persian invaders in a battle played out simultaneously with the battle depicted in Zack Snyder‘s 2006 gore-filled predecessor.

This month sees a number of images for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, first with an image of Amy Adams as love interest Lois Lane whilst filming on set on Vancouver Island, and more recently with a shirtless Henry Cavill for his role as Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman.
Even more images of the cast on set can be seen here. There’s undoubtedly enough to get us excited in this mass gallery of pictures, it’s just a shame we still have to wait so long.
Directed by Zack Snyder and based on the 1986–87 DC Comics of the same name, Watchmen is set in an alternate America where costumed superheroes are part of everyday life. When one of his former comrades is murdered (Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s The Comedian), masked vigilante Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) uncovers a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his retired associates – Nite Owl II (Patrick Wilson), Silk Spectre II (Malin Åkerman), Doctor Manhattan (Billy Crudup), and Ozymandias (Matthew Goode) – Rorschach glimpses a far-reaching conspiracy involving their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the world’s future.
