Hilarious Action-Packed Third Trailer for Gunn's 'The Suicide Squad'

The Suicide Squad Trailer

"I'm going to get you out of here alive." Ahahaha amazing. Warner Bros has released a third official trailer for James Gunn's new The Suicide Squad movie, arriving in theaters everywhere this August. The more they show, they better this looks, and I am so down for this action-packed comedy superhero smorgasbord. It's going to be a blast! This ensemble anti-hero DC action comedy boasts one hell of an explosive ensemble cast, bringing back Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. Also starring: Idris Elba, Joel Kinnaman, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Michael Rooker, Flula Borg, Daniela Melchior, Steve Agee, David Dastmalchian, Mayling Ng, Alice Braga, Sean Gunn, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Peter Capaldi, Nathan Fillion, Joaquín Cosío, Juan Diego Botto, also with Taika Waititi as King Shark. That big starfish looks nuts. I've seen enough footage - just show the movie already.

Joker's Back in 'Batman: The Long Halloween' Parts 1 and 2 Trailers

Batman: The Long Halloween Trailer

"Everyone's invited to this party!" Warner Bros has unveiled an official trailer for both parts of their new animated adaptation of the iconic comic book Batman: The Long Halloween. These animated direct-to-VOD / DVD movies are the latest animated WB DC offerings, based on the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. Batman investigates a murder spree in Gotham that takes place on holidays. Few cases have ever tested the wits of the World's Greatest Detective like the mystery behind the Holiday Killer… The Dark Knight must fight a unified front of classic DC Super-Villains, diffuse an escalating mob war and solve the mystery of the Holiday Killer in The Long Halloween - Part Two. Featuring the voices of Jensen Ackles as Batman, and Troy Baker as Joker, with Laila Berzins, Billy Burke, Zach Callison, David Dastmalchian, Alyssa Diaz, John DiMaggio, Robin Atkin Downes, and Josh Duhamel. This looks quite similar to other Batman movies we've seen, but I'm still excited to see this story turned into animation.

Another New Trailer for James Gunn's 'The Suicide Squad' Drops In

The Suicide Squad Trailer

"Nothing like a bloodbath to start the day." Time for more already! Warner Bros has dropped in yet another trailer for James Gunn's new The Suicide Squad movie, following up the original Suicide Squad from 2017. This is a "green band" trailer they made to initially show in theaters exclusively with Godzilla vs Kong, and it plays totally differently than the first full red band trailer. You just gotta see it. This ensemble anti-hero DC action comedy boasts one hell of an explosive ensemble cast, bringing back Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. And it also features: Idris Elba, Joel Kinnaman, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Michael Rooker, Flula Borg, Daniela Melchior, Steve Agee, David Dastmalchian, Mayling Ng, Peter Capaldi, Alice Braga, Pete Davidson, Sean Gunn, Storm Reid, Nathan Fillion, Joaquín Cosío, Juan Diego Botto, and Taika Waititi as King Shark. As great as that other trailer is, I think I prefer this one just a bit more. Even without all the extra F bombs, this rocks hard.

"Who knows why madmen do what they do?" Warner Bros has revealed the first official red band trailer for James Gunn's new The Suicide Squad movie, a standalone sequel to the original Suicide Squad from 2017. Introducing a big batch of new characters. Holy smokes this looks awesome!! This ensemble anti-hero DC action comedy boasts one hell of an explosive ensemble cast, bringing back Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. With a whole bunch of other exceptional talent: Idris Elba, Joel Kinnaman, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Michael Rooker, Flula Borg, Daniela Melchior, Steve Agee, David Dastmalchian, Mayling Ng, Peter Capaldi, Alice Braga, Pete Davidson, Sean Gunn, Storm Reid, Nathan Fillion, Joaquín Cosío, Juan Diego Botto, and Taika Waititi as King Shark. It's clear that James Gunn was the perfect guy to handle this kind of ensemble madness, and I am so excited to see this. It seems like just the right kind of ridiculous wackiness. This is going to be a blast!! Dive right in.

Extensive 6-Min Featurette on Making Of 'Snyder's Justice League'

Snyder's Justice League Featurette

"He's got such an incredible brain for the visual." WB + HBO Max have revealed a new extended 6-minute behind-the-scenes featurette for Zack Snyder's Justice League, which is now available for streaming on HBO Max. Hey, a classic Hollywood making of featurette! We haven't seen one of these in a long time. Tons of green screen in this, but that's still how they make these superhero movies. JL is the continuation of the Batman v Superman series in the DC Extended Universe, bringing together five superheroes: Ben Affleck as Batman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. As well as Henry Cavill, Jared Leto, Billy Crudup, Willem Dafoe, Jeremy Irons, Amber Heard, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, J.K. Simmons; and also Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Ray Porter as Darkseid. I'm glad they released this, it's quite nice to see Zack Snyder at work on set. I also recommend reading Dan's editorial about Zack's perseverance.

'Zack Snyder's Justice League' is a Victorious Triumph for Perseverance

Zack Snyder's Justice League

The fans were victorious. Zack Snyder's Justice League is finally upon us. After a four year journey that originated with director Zack Snyder departing the project due to a family tragedy, the four-hour superhero epic defied all odds and expectations and arrived streaming on HBO Max this past weekend (watch the final trailer again). No longer besmirched by Joss Whedon's neutered version of Justice League from 2017, Zack Snyder's Justice League (formerly known as "The Snyder Cut") restores his epic vision for the superhero film, and it is a victorious triumph for perseverance and for the vision of an auteur who never gave up.

As well as Henry Cavill, Jared Leto, Billy Crudup, Willem Dafoe, Jeremy Irons, Amber Heard, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, J.K. Simmons as Gordon; plus Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, and Ray Porter as Darkseid. There's some new glimpses of Superman in this, and a Joker reveal at the end as well. It looks seriously action-packed and flashy as hell! Rock 'n roll, Snyder Cut.

Did You Solve the Riddle Hidden in 'The Batman' Teaser? Here's How

To The Batman

"Haven't a clue? Let's play a game, just Me and You…" Its been quite a long time since anyone has hidden something in a movie trailer. But it's no surprise that there's a hidden message in the first teaser trailer for The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves. Especially considering one of the best viral marketing campaigns in Hollywood history was for The Dark Knight (run by the legendary 42 Entertainment). The teaser for The Batman introduces us to Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, with one shot of Colin Farrell as Cobblepot. But there's one other villain teased - The Riddler, also known as Edward Nashton, being played by Paul Dano. There are a few scenes involving notes left "To The Batman", and of these clues at a crime scene is a card from "Your Secret Friend". And inside there's a riddle - along with a threatening message about the "LIAR". Does the code hidden in the card mean anything…? Yes it does! A game designer / puzzlecrafter on Twitter named Mike Selinker figured it out and explained how he solved it using brute force. Find out below.

Meet Dwayne Johnson as DC's 'Black Adam' in First Concept Art Teaser

Black Adam Concept Art

"Now 5000 years later… I'm free." In addition to all the exciting new footage from Wonder Woman and Batman, Warner Bros has released an early promo teaser trailer for Black Adam at the DC FanDome event this weekend. They haven't filmed anything yet (delayed production start due to the pandemic) but they did cut together a motion-graphics trailer, featuring the voice of Dwayne Johnson, to introduce everyone to this character. The character was intended to originally be introduced in David Sandberg's Shazam! movie, but they decided to make another standalone movie to focus on Black Adam's origin story itself. Other DC characters, including the Justice Society of America, may factor into the plot of Black Adam. In addition to Johnson, the only other actor cast so far is Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher. This is just a short teaser, but it's a cool way to tell the story of this big guy. We probably won't see real footage until next year anyway.

Teaser Trailer for Matt Reeves' 'The Batman' Starring Robert Pattinson

The Batman Teaser Trailer

"I'm vengeance." Warner Bros has revealed an awesome first teaser trailer for Matt Reeves' The Batman as part of the DC FanDome virtual event this weekend (along with WW84 and Snyder Cut trailers). The movie hasn't even finished filming - they had to stop earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic - but will resume later in the fall. Reeves introduces the film: "We're in year two, it’s the Gotham experiment. What can he do that will finally change this place; he is charting what he’s doing and not having any of the affect that he wants to have. That's when the murders begin to happen…" Reeves' The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, along with Andy Serkis as Alfred, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle, Jeffrey Wright as Gordon, plus Colin Farrell as Cobblepot, Paul Dano as Nashton, John Turturro as Falcone, and Peter Sarsgaard. Not only a stellar cast, but this looks tremendous - as expected with Reeves at the helm. Such a dark, gritty, somber vibe to this but all the better. Fire up that rad Batmobile! Check this out.
