A $500 PC and an AI Did a Way Better Job Erasing Henry Cavill's Justice League Mustache Than Expensive VFX

There’s a long list of things wrong with the Justice League movie, not the least of which being the hasty and poorly-executed digital removal of Henry Cavill’s mustache that he couldn’t shave during the film’s reshoots. But not to worry, some random dude on the internet with a $500 used PC and a world-changing AI just…

Justice League's Blu-Ray will add just 1 deleted scene, and you have to get it at Walmart

Last year’s superhero team-up blockbuster Justice League was a claustrophobic mess of bad effects, boring urban and industrial locations, and awkward, cramped staging. It was also the third most expensive movie ever made, budgeted at a cool $300 million. (That’s not counting marketing costs, which were likely around…

Paramount was “ridiculously petty” about Henry Cavill’s Justice League ’stache, apparently

It was kind of funny over the summer when Henry Cavill joked about whether or not he’d keep the mustache he grew for Mission: Impossible 6 during Justice League reshoots. On his Instagram at the time, the Superman actor said, “It is not a question of IF I should shave. It is a question of how can we possibly be…

The current Justice League film is a hodgepodge of different creative impulses and corporate demands, but fans who want a cohesive vision of the team need to check out the Justice League run from the late ’80s.

Weekend Box Office: Lex Luthor wouldn't kneel to pick up what Justice League just made

Most of the time, when a movie makes that kind of cash at all, let alone in a single weekend, there’s no question that we’re talking about a runaway smash.

Ben Affleck's Justice League promo tour keeps turning into The Harvey Weinstein Show

Ben Affleck is dutifully making his way around the talk show circuit at the moment, giving a command performance as someone who’s not totally sick of all this “being Batman” bullshit by now. Affleck’s efforts to promote his new superhero throwdown Justice League keep getting sidetracked in interviews, though, as…

Our critics debate the merits of DC's Justice League

It’s been more than a year and a half since A.V. Club’s A.A. Dowd and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky last sat down to debate the merits (or lack thereof) of a Zack Snyder superhero movie. But now, duty calls them to return to the bombastic Snyder-verse with a look at Justice League, an intentional course-correction for the DC…

The superheroes of Justice League deserve better than another misbegotten blockbuster

A blockbuster with more studio notes than script (underlined: “Be more Marvel”), Justice League attempts to inject some levity and rock ’n’ roll into Zack Snyder’s dinosaurian version of the DC Comics-verse; in many cases, it ends up with the worst of multiple worlds. Gone are the artistic pretensions and doofy…
