Henry Cavill posts weird Superman video on Instagram, is definitely saying something

Earlier today, we reported that Henry Cavill was most likely done playing Superman in Warner Bros.’ DC superhero movies, meaning we wouldn’t be seeing him and his CG lip for another Justice League or Man Of Steel movie any time soon. Supposedly, Warner Bros. is choosing to focus on a Supergirl movie instead, but…

Forget Aquaman: Let's baselessly speculate about what the rest of the Justice League has been doing all year

2018 has been a shockingly sparse year for DC superhero movie output; Warner Bros. has yet to unleash even a single DCEU entry since 2017's Justice League, and the next film on the companies’ schedules, Aquaman, won’t arrive in theaters until December. Which raises the question: What have all these superpowered…

At Comic-Con, Conan's bummed out Batman wants to join Marvel's cool kids' table 

Sure, it might be the 10th anniversary of superhero movie benchmark The Dark Knight, but the DC movie universe isn’t exactly the place to be these days. That’s the conceit of the star-studded skit from last night’s kickoff of Conan’s annual trip to Comic-Con, anyway, as Conan O’Brien’s Caped Crusader glumly sidles up…

Wait, now there's some more weird shit going on with Henry Cavill's beard

We thought the drama surrounding Henry Cavill’s multi-million dollar mustache ended when the actor shaved the damn thing off earlier this year. Alas, such was not the case. Not only will it haunt any future screenings of Justice League, which will forever find Superman’s upper lip afflicted by uncanny shadows, but it…

People are hectoring AT&T to release Zack Snyder's cut of Justice League

One of the internet’s most organized, hyper-specific, extremely-online fanbases is that of Zack Snyder and Warner Brothers’ critically reviled DC Extended Universe. While most people have reacted to the recent run of Batman and Superman movies with something between indifference and strong dislike, some very vocal…

Hey DC, why not let the writers of Infinity War fix your cinematic universe? 

Things are not so great over in the DC Extended Universe at the moment. Case in point: Justice League, the superhero team up that was supposed to be the DCEU equivalent of an Avengers film, ended up becoming the worst-performing DCEU film to date. (Admittedly, that’s like saying you wanted a gold-encrusted Ferrari…

The Justice League Blu-ray is a bizarre exercise in hiding the truth about moviemaking

The behind-the-scenes drama that went into Warner Bros.’ tentpole superhero team-up Justice League this past fall ended up being a far more compelling story than the one that played out in front of the cameras. Anyone who was paying attention to the ongoing shakeups, studio meddling, and eventual overhaul of the…

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…

Killer Frost is granted her greatest wish in this JLA #22 exclusive

DC’s Justice League books are the best they’ve been in years right now, largely by shifting focus to the character dynamics within superhero teams. Christopher Priest and Pete Woods’ Justice League is off to a riveting start, and Steve Orlando’s Justice League Of America is at its best when it shows how different…

There’s at least one absolutely great scene in Justice League

Alex McLevy: Justice League has been out for a couple of weeks now, and to say opinions are mixed would be gentle. Some people love it, some hate it, but most, like we here at The A.V. Club, just think, “Meh.” To be fair, the film had an uphill battle. Its primary architect had to withdraw well before it was done, due…

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…
