Well: that WAS a BIG surprise! The CW Network with KEVIN SMITH and GEOFF JOHNS have shown us a taste of things to come.

We were treated to:

DC

  • Confirmation that BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE does indeed launch a new shared universe of super heroism onscreen.
  • Commentary from: BEN AFFLECK, HENRY CAVILL, ZACK SNYDER, JASON MOMOA, GAL GADOT and others.
  • FIRST FOOTAGE from WONDER WOMAN!
  • Potted Explanations of the origins and powers of: CYBORG! GREEN LANTERN! THE FLASH! AQUA MAN!
  • Distinction between the television version of FLASH and the upcoming cinematic counterpart.
  • REVEAL of the new trailer for SUICIDE SQUAD!

The whole show should be available online and can be viewed on various facebook feeds. Meantime: Here are some highlights to enjoy.

 

 

Each taster fuels desire for more movie news / spoilers etc. And this IS still a BIG risk. BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is out in March but we still don’t know quite how big a hit it will be. When I dared suggest it could do STAR WARS numbers, I was lambasted. Lesson learned. And it’s a fair point: remember that MARVEL really only went ahead fully with a shared universe once IRON MAN had hit big. But, MAN OF STEEL did well for Warners /DC back in 2013, despite any suggestion to the contrary. So one could argue that SUPERMAN is the IRON MAN of DC? 

One thing is for sure: these are very interesting times to be a fan of comic books, movies and of comic book movies!
