It's been a long and painful week since BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE hit theaters. There was heartbreak, there was sadness, and there was a lot that happened, so here's what you may have missed.
DAWN OF JUSTICE has been panned by critics. Unfortunately, in this day and age of superhero blockbusters, that is quite newsworthy. DC and Warner Bros. had a ton riding on this film and sadly it didn't quite work. Where does this leave the future of the DC films? Time will tell. With JUSTICE LEAGUE just a few weeks away from filming, it will be interesting to see if Snyder is kept around to helm the project.
SUICIDE SQUAD is getting reshoots to make it more "light-hearted." DC's next film is headed back to the drawing board in the wake of DAWN OF JUSTICE'S primary criticisms. Many saw the film as "too dark" and "not a lot of fun." That being said, Warner Bros is putting millions back into the film to make it friendlier and funnier.
Ben Affleck has finished his script for a BATMAN movie. The Oscar-winning screenwriter and producer has reportedly finished his script for a Batman film. While it remains to be seen if he will be directing the film, fans can rest easy knowing the best part of BATMAN V SUPERMAN will be returning soon.
Famed composer Hans Zimmer is no longer scoring superhero films. The man behind Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, MAN OF STEEL, and DAWN OF JUSTICE claims he is done with the superhero business. This is sad news for film fans, as his scores were often a highlight of those films.
DEADPOOL is now the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time. DEADPOOL topped THE MATRIX RELOADED to become the box office champ. Two months after release, the merc with a mouth is still finding ways to make money.
That wraps it up for this week's comic book movie news. As always, come back next week to see what you may have missed.
