To make your mark on the future, it helps to take stock of where you’ve been. 2017 promises to be an exciting year for DC and its fans, but before we celebrate the new year, we thought we’d look back on 2016 and consider some of the places we’ve been. DC made some bold choices in the worlds of comics, film and TV, and many of them set our course for the months and years ahead. The past year was full of memorable moments, but some of these moments held real significance. Some of them really mattered. So as we do every year at this time, we thought we’d discuss a few of them.
Just in time for Batman Day, Zack Snyder gave us another great look at Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight as we’ll be seeing him in Justice League. Earlier today, he tweeted a photo of Batman standing alongside the Batmobile and sporting a new Tactical Batsuit that we haven’t yet seen.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce proudly unveiled a Walk of Fame star in honor of the late Batman creator Bob Kane on Wednesday, October 21st. The star in the category of Motion Pictures was dedicated in front of the Guinness World Records Museum right beside the all-new Batmobile from Warner Bros. upcoming film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
We’re used to seeing Superman as in control and good tempered. He may be a man of action and willing to throw a punch in the name of justice, but rarely does he get mad. And yet, that’s the only way to describe him in one of the latest photos to be released from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Squaring off against Batman, the Man of Steel looks moments away from letting loose with a blast of heat vision. We think it’s fair to say that in the battle between these two heroes, the gloves are off!
We’ve only seen a few seconds of video and a handful of still photos of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but it’s been more than enough to confirm that we’re in for a much more contemporary take on the character when Zack Snyder’s super-powered blockbuster debuts next March.
