Yesterday several news outlet reported an on-set visit offered by Warner Bros., probably to make fans sure that Justice League will be different from Batman v. Superman. As you know, Amy will be back as Lois Lane – in a probably smaller part that she already had on BvS, due the huge cast and storylines to be developed, she wasn’t on set when media visited it for the reports. Checking up all the news that popped up, what do we know so far about the film?
Here’s the official synopsys:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash -— it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.
Justice League was first planned as two films, but now its being developed as a single film only. It was retitled to Justice League (previously Justice League: Part One). Forbes has a very detailed description of the film’s plot. The film is set to wrap up in early September, with a November 2017 release date.
November will be a busy month for Amy. A couple of weeks ago it was announced a November 18th release for Nocturnal Animals. Earlier today The Wrap reported that Paramount will release “Arrival“- the new title for former Story of Your Life – on November 11.
The film, directed by Denis Villeneuve and co-starring Jeremy Renner, is based on the short story by Ted Chiang, “Arrival” will feature Adams as an expert linguist recruited by the military to determine whether a group of aliens crash-landing on Earth come in peace or are a threat.
She begins experiencing flashbacks that unlock the greater mystery about their visit.
Tom Ford’s A Single Man follow up Nocturnal Animals, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, Kim Basinger, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon, Isla Fisher, and Armie Hammer have now set a release date. The drama will open on November 18th in limited release. The film will expand further on November 23rd, before going wide on December 9th. It will gets a UK release on November 4th.
An adaptation of Austin Wright‘s book Tony and Susan, the George Clooney-produced film follows two stories, one of a woman who faces dark truths when reminiscing about her first marriage. The other story is found when the woman reads a manuscript from her ex-husband, which follows a man on a family vacation which turns deadly.
“That’s an amazing script. It’s going to be a trippy movie, really unique — because it goes back and forth between two completely diametrically opposed world,” Shannon told Indiewire last year. “It’s a real head trip, half of it set in the LA art world and the other half is this grimy crime story in Texas. I’m just in the Texas part, playing a detective trying to help Jake Gyllenhaal’s character solve a crime.”
Games Radar – Even though Zack Snyder promised a three-hour extended version of Batman v Superman on home video, there was always a slim chance it wouldn’t materialise. That butt-numbing runtime has now been confirmed by a Swedish retailer, CDON, which lists the Ultimate Edition of the movie as clocking in at 181 minutes: three hours and one minute.
According producer Charles Roven, the uncut version will be more intense, but Snyder alerted it’s not really “R” version, due the lack of nudity and gore.
While the second disc of the release is the one that includes the R-rated cut, it’s the first disc which also has some surprises in store. Two hours of them, to be exact. Yes, we’re getting a hefty 120 minutes of bonus features that’s likely to include making-ofs, artwork, commentaries and more deleted scenes. The Blu-ray is expected to arrive in July, so we’ll no doubt receive specifics on those extras sometime before then.
You can already pre-order the DVD on Amazon, but the estimate release date is set for July only.
