Critics Slam ‘Batman vs. Superman’, What Does This Mean For ‘Justice League’ Plans?

The first critic reviews of Batman vs. Superman hit the web last night and early word was…not kind. The film currently sits at 40% on Rotten Tomatoes. By comparison, the divisive Man of Steel had a 56%. Even The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had a 53% and that film was so bad it single-handedly killed a franchise. Our own critic, Matt Singer, called it a “a burdensome 150-minute slog” in his review. Other reviews have called it “an holy mess,” “a near-total drag” and “a deeply disappointing experience.” Perhaps most importantly though is this sentiment from GQ, which seems to be a recurring theme amongst negative reviews: “The wider problem is that [Batman vs. Superman] doesn’t make you want a Justice League film.” Studios are used to bad reviews, but if the overwhelming sentiment is that the Dawn of Justice doesn’t make you want to see Justice arrive, Warner Bros. has a supersized problem.

Marvel to Release ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Prequel Comic Series

One of the reasons Disney paid $3 billion for rights to Lucasfilm and Star Wars was because they knew they could synergy the s— out of it. No company does cross-promotion quite like Disney does and they’ve already proven adept at using each of their brands to help promote their other brands (remember when the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer debuted on ESPN?). Continuing on the path “Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens” started last year Marvel Comics has officially announced that they’ll be publishing a Star Wars: Rogue One prequel comic series later this year.

Marvel One-Shots Could Return as Exclusive Online Content

Remember the Marvel One-Shots? They were the series of short films set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe that were included as bonus features on the DVD and Blu-ray releases of Marvel films. Five Marvel One-Shots were produced from 2011-2014 including one that served as the inspiration for ABC’s Agent Carter TV series. Then in May of 2014 Marvel announced that the DVD and Blu-ray release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier wouldn’t include a One-Shot. Then the Guardians of the Galaxy DVD was released without one as well. It seemed as if the Marvel One-Shots might be dead, but like Bucky Barnes, they’re not dead, just in a cryogenic hypersleep waiting to be reborn bigger and better.

So, for example, you could watch Batman vs. Superman on March 25 on your couch for $50. The plan was generating some buzz and support from filmmakers like J.J. Abrams and Peter Jackson, but received its biggest setback today as the National Organization of Theater Owners have officially dismissed the proposal.

‘Sausage Party’ Review: Just Get Stoned and Watch ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’ Instead

Sausage Party is the first ever R-rated CG-animated film. Based on a concept Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Evan Goldberg first came up with 8 years ago, the film, by definition, is something you have never seen before. It’s raunchy, rowdy and completely insane. Unfortunately, it’s just not very funny.
