Earlier, Ben Affleck was signed for Justice League part 1 & 2. Now, this news has brought delight among the fanbase, who greatly celebrated seeing Ben Affleck as Batman.


Zack Snyder was asked whether Ben Affleck should direct a Batman film, he said, he should certainly do it because its going to help him in comprehending the universe of Batman. ‘Oh yeah, for sure. I think he would. I think that’s kind of the prerequisite, hopefully, for him doing [the film]’, says Snyder.

Reportedly, Ben Affleck concentrates on one film at a time, he completes a film, and then takes the next project. ‘I keep working on him, he’s always said he’s a one movie at a time guy. He’s finishing editing his film ‘Live By Night’ and then he comes to ‘Justice League,’ and then after that, I think he’s going to try and develop the story [Batman].’, says Snyder.

IMAX has released a video and image explaining on one of the reasons why should you watch Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice in IMAX. Although, the entire film has not been shot using IMAX cameras. Select footages such as the epic battle scenes between Batman and Superman, the eventual battle with Doomsday, introduction of superheroes who are going to be united in Justice League were shot in IMAX.
‘IMAX cameras magnify the experience and make the world of BvS, more vivid and clear’ says Zack Snyder. IMAX is meant for nature photography, lately filmmakers such as Christopher Nolan, JJ Abrams, Michael Bay and Zack Snyder transitioned into cinema camera as they are needed to visually present massive images and make the experience holistic for audiences. It happens only with IMAX.

The cinematographer of BvS, Larry Fong, A.S.C said, Snyder chose to use IMAX, and wanted us to push it a lot, making more movements. The camera is humongous in size, and challenging to move around. However, Larry Fong managed to take dolly, technocrane and even handheld shots with IMAX, which is not generally possible. The dream combat sequence is a single take continuous shot, and IMAX has produced amplified images. Zack Snyder was excited and jumped after watching the IMAX version. Thanks to the cinematographer and the visual effects team.

The aspect ratio is one of the main reasons for making the IMAX experience unique and complete. The standard projectors feature in 2.4:1, whereas IMAX Xenon/Digital system projects in 1.9:1, IMAX Laser and film 70mm systems project in 1.43:1. What do they really mean? The movie BvS has expanded aspect ratio, which means it carries more details, they are needed to seen on the large format screens so as to see the images. The regular projections and screens technically cannot provide the complete images, the filmmaker intended the audiences to watch. Therefore, you get to see more of the films shot on IMAX or BvS only on IMAX.

filmtheoristIn Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice, both Batman and Superman are in middle of life crisis. They are pessimistic, and doubt each others intentions. More importantly, in the comic version of Batman Vs Superman, Batman is more villainous, because of the fact that he does kill the guilty. He plays the role of both jury and executioner. Mercy is not shown for the bad, they are just killed.
When two superheroes clash, the film needs to carry the darkness and intensity throughout. Superman is not anymore a God. He gets beaten by a man, batman. The premise of Superman can do anything possible is boring. He needs to face the death.
Justice League unites all the superheroes. They all communicate with each other, resolve their differences, eventually fight against the bad. Therefore, its going to be comical and more optimistic. The shooting of Justice League begins in April of 2016, and slated for release in November of 2017.

We all remember, how did Christopher Nolan turn the comical batman franchise into an intensive
emotional drama, with strong focus on characters reflecting ground realities. The approach proved to be
an unprecedented success. Zack Snyder has adopted the similar strategy of making a philosophical superhero drama than a mere adrenaline rush packed typical superhero film. The film has already started receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics and audiences all over.


It starts with Batman questioning the real intentions of an alien, Superman, deemed as God by some and hated by another section of people for causing catastrophic damages ( The leveling of Metropolis in Man of Steel). The conflict arises between them, in meantime, a new threat challenging the existence of humankind surfaces. Both, superheroes sort of reconcile their differences, and eventually become friends and fight evil. The dawn of justice is born. Wonder Woman plays a pivotal role in uniting them.


Batman Vs Superman is kind of continuation of Man of Steel and marks the advent of Justice League as well.
