Watch: Condensed IMAX Trailer for Snyder's 'Batman v Superman'

Batman v Superman IMAX Trailer

"This means something… it's all some people have, it's all that gives them hope." Warner Bros has debuted a new IMAX trailer for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that is a condensed version of the new Comic-Con teaser. There are a few new shots of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) in this one, which is cool to see, but it's still pretty much the same of what we've seen before. And same as before I think this looks awesome, way more exciting than what Marvel is doing. Henry Cavill plays Superman, Ben Affleck plays Batman, Amy Adams plays Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg plays Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons plays Alfred. This ends on a very cool shot that finally puts meaning to "The red capes are coming…"

Discuss: Does 'Batman v Superman' Fix Some 'Man of Steel' Issues?

Batman v Superman

After years of speculative buzz, Zack Snyder finally unveiled a complete look at where the future of DC is headed at Comic-Con with an extended trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Technically speaking, this is a sequel to Man of Steel, but Zack is adamant to remind fans that this is the beginning of something new (meaning: Justice League and other DC movies) and not so much a sequel to Superman's re-imagined origin. That said, it's clear with some of the footage in the trailer that these two movies connect directly. There's a shot of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne (aka Batman) on the ground in Metropolis watching Supes fight Zod as buildings collapse around him. This changes everything about Man of Steel. Or does it?

Must Watch: David Ayer's 'Suicide Squad' Movie Comic-Con Teaser

Suicide Squad Teaser Trailer

And here we go… Warner Bros has suddenly released the Comic-Con sizzle reel teaser for David Ayer's Suicide Squad, after the footage leaked to the internet following its debut in Hall H. The studio released a statement saying: "Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed." It's awesome, and I'm glad they're doing this, but it also sucks that it was leaked. This looks dark and gritty and different than anything we've seen, but I am so excited for it. There's even a glimpse of Batman in this, along with all your favorite villains: Deadshot, Harley Quinn, The Joker, Enchantress, Killer Croc and Rick Flagg. Have at it.

Batman v Superman Trailer

"Black and blue. God vs man. Day vs night." Warner Bros has debuted the new full-length trailer for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice following the debut during the Comic-Con 2015 panel. This time they don't hold back, giving us major glimpses of the battles and many of the new characters we're meeting. Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Ezra Miller, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane and Jeremy Irons all star. This looks really extraordinary, they're covering the complaints about Metropolis from Man of Steel, and introducing so much more. Move aside Marvel, I'm way more excited for DC's upcoming set of movies. Seriously, just watch this video right now. We are not worthy!

It's True: Ben Affleck Will Co-Write & Direct a Solo 'Batman' Movie

Ben Affleck Batman

We can't exactly say "it's official" until Warner Bros sends out the press release, but this is about as close as we'll get until then. Deadline is reporting that the rumor first reported by Latino Review a few weeks ago is actually true. Ben Affleck will be co-writing and directing the solo spin-off Batman movie following his appearance in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice coming out next year. He'll be teaming up with DC's Geoff Johns, writer of Batman: Earth One, to write the script for this before he directs. Well I'll be damned, this doesn't so bad at all. "They are likely to turn in a script before the end of the summer."

10 Years Later: How Nolan's 'Batman Begins' Redefined a Dark Knight

Batman Begins

Ten years ago the state of the Batman franchise – and the movie industry – was in a much different place than it is now. In today's movie climate, the term "reboot" is a word bandied about casually and Batman as a character and movie franchise is held in high regard. However, ten years ago things were completely different. Before Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, the future of Batman in live-action was uncertain. With the ten year anniversary of Christopher Nolan's seminal film this week, let's take a look back at how Nolan – before he was the enormously successful filmmaker he is today – redefined Batman and the reboot.

Photos: 'Batman v Superman' Batmobile Seen at the Licensing Expo

Batman v Superman Batmobile

Throughout Batman history, the Batmobile has been an iconic part of the superhero's stories, and a key part of the marketing for all the movies. Warner Bros has been hosting rolling roadshows of all the various Batmobiles throughout history, so it makes sense they're already showing off the latest model now. Wired has snapped a nice, clean shot of the new Batmobile from Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that's on display at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas this week. A few other photos from social media have been added below. We've seen this before, but it's always nice to see it in closer detail. There's a hint it may even show up again in David Ayer's Suicide Squad, which is filming right now. Batman is back.

James Wan Set to Direct DC's 'Aquaman' Movie + Sony's 'Robotech'

James Wan

Well now we know what's in store for James Wan. Warner Bros has officially confirmed that James Wan will be directing the Aquaman movie based on the DC Comics superhero, with Jason Momoa already set to play the aquatic superhero (since he's supposed to potentially appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). Wan just came off of directing Furious 7, which is setting some epic box office records, and has also been confirmed for the Robotech movie (via THR). "The Aquaman film will be a major tentpole picture for us and James's span of work has proven him able to take on any manner of project, bringing his incredible creative talent and unique voice to the material," Warner Bros' Greg Silverman commented on the news.

First Photo: David Ayer's Task Force X 'Suicide Squad' Assembled

Suicide Squad

Assembled and ready to kick ass. Ready to kick the Avengers' ass? Maybe. David Ayer has tweeted out the first official photo of the Suicide Squad crew in costume from his upcoming DC Comics' Suicide Squad movie, which is now filming up in Toronto. We finally get a look at everyone in the line-up, and all of their wild outfits, including (seen from L to R): Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo. We recently got a first look at Jared Leto as The Joker, so that pretty much covers everyone. From this first look, I'm sure Harley Quinn is going to be every geek's favorite character in 2016.

Better Look at Ben Affleck as Batman Without the Superman Logo

Ben Affleck as Batman

We've already seen a couple good glimpses of Ben Affleck suited up as Batman thanks to that black and white photo of him standing next to the new Batmobile that debuted last year. The teaser trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice also featured Affleck in Batman's metal suit as he prepares to fight Superman in the rain, and the poster gave us a headshot, albeit with Batman's face obscured by a shredded Superman logo. But now we finally have a good look at Affleck in the cape and cowl in the form of the photo used for that aforementioned poster, but without the Superman logo. And there's one in color too.
