Justice League Teaser Trailer


In the wake of his friend Clark Kent's monumental sacrifice, Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince are determined to recruit the most powerful superheroes on the planet to help them fight a new menace that Lex Luthor predicted was coming to the Earth. They are the intrepid Arthur Curry or Aquaman, king of the sea; the young but lightning-fast Barry Allen, also known as The Flash; and the half-man half-machine known as Victor Stone or Cyborg. Together they must fight an army of parademons that have descended upon them, apparently in search of the Mother Box that transformed Victor Stone into the biomechanical creature he is. They are serving the villainous extra-terrestrial Steppenwolf, who will stop at nothing to get what he wants and take over the world. But as you can probably work out, these heroes have an advantage in that Superman is far from dead as they initially suspected.

Justice League - Comic Con Trailer


Bruce Wayne knows that the Earth is under threat from evil forces much worse than any he's - or any other superhero - has previously seen. To defend the people of Earth, Bruce and Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) decide to hunt down some of the most skilled individuals the planet has to offer, each of these people have a special talent and could play a vital part in saving the world.

As well as the new recruits (who include Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash) Batman also recruits Wonder Woman who previously fought alongside Superman whilst trying to beat Lex Luthor's incredibly strong genetically-engineered creature which also killed Superman. The fate of Superman is unclear but given the end of Batman Vs. Superman it's presumed that Superman will return to life albeit potentially temporarily weakened.

The Justice League is DC Comics’ superhero team and it’s thought that a supervillain called Steppenwolf will be their main target – though it’s sure that Lex Luthor will appear and cause as much trouble as he possibly can.

Jesse Eisenberg

He's pretty excellent at playing distinctly unlikeable characters on screen and on stage, but Jesse Eisenberg proved he was all heart in reality when he stopped to confront some anti-gay protestors in London over the weekend as he pushed his rented bicycle across the street.

Jesse EisenbergJesse Eisenberg stands up for gay rights with five words

The 'Batman v Superman' star was enjoying the UK city, taking a break from his play on London's West End 'The Spoils' during London Gay Pride on Saturday (June 25th 2016), when he came across a small group of anti-gay protesters claiming that God hates gay people. In a nutshell. Understandably, Eisenberg seemed pretty shocked to be faced with such outdated opinions and stared with a dumbfounded smirk before confronting one of the protestors with a well-deserved expletive.

Are You Not Entertained? Batman Vs Superman: A Modern Gladiator Story - Trailer + Pictures


Henry Cavill Ben Affleck Jesse Eisenberg Gal Gadot Zack Snyder

Next year is taking comic books to a new level. No longer are the lines between heroes and villains solid. Now we're seeing a new side to our favourite caped crusaders; Marvel's Captain America may be bringing about a civil war, but that's nothing compared to the battle between DC's Batman and Superman in 'Dawn Of Justice'.

Henry Cavill in Batman vs SupermanHenry Cavill reprises his role as Clark Kent

The new trailer sees an evermore intensifying hostility between the two vigilantes: on the one side you've got a billionaire human being named Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) who's disillusioned with what Gotham City has become and determined to fight crime in his own way, and on the other you've got an alien journalist named Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) with supernatural powers who's rather more modest when it comes to his own crime-fighting practices.

Jesse Eisenberg And Kristen Stewart Reunite For American Ultra


Jesse Eisenberg Kristen Stewart

When she first read the script for American Ultra, the thing that stood out for Kristen Stewart was the chance to work with Jesse Eisenberg. "Actors get sent these scripts from their agents," she says. "But this is a really, really original and strange script. And I jumped at working with Jesse. We really had a good time on Adventureland a couple years ago. And I've sort of declared we should definitely make a movie every five years. So just in keeping with that, I jumped on this one!"
