They shoot Justice League without Henry Cavil's mustache, and after the shooting he signed in for MI6, which required his mustache so he grew a mustache. And that's when tragedy happened. Zack Snyder, Justice League's director, stepped down due to a family tragedy. In response, Joss Whedon stepped up to helm the film and also called for a few reshoots ($25 ...

Part of what makes superheroes who they are and attracts readers/viewers to them is their origin stories. Superman is an alien with super powers because of his alien status combined with the light of a yellow sun. He's not "one of us", he's an external savior. One of the central concepts of Shazam is that he could have been anyone. In the film he's Billy, a ...

Hermes/Mercury is well known for his winged shoes, also known as Talaria According to wikipedia(citation needed), they flew the god as swift as any bird. So I would say that even if it not explicitely stated, Flying falls under Mercury Powers.

Producer Charles Roven felt that WW I held special meaning for Diana. Amazons are skilled in hand to hand combats. They are also used to the fact that fight is an honorable thing. But all of this was changed in World War I when automated arms were introduced and the armies were fighting with guns, bombs, rifles etc. It was no longer what would he call ...

Because of his commitment for Mission: Impossible 6, he was not allowed to do so, from screenrant.com Mission: Impossible 6 director Christopher McQuarrie reveals why Henry Cavill can’t shave his mustache for the current Justice League reshoots.

NO Military Grade explosives are incredibly safe and are designed to only explode when required. Take C4 (or Composition-4 to give it its correct name) - Wikipedia C-4 is very stable and insensitive to most physical shocks. C-4 cannot be detonated by a gunshot or by dropping it onto a hard surface. It does not explode when set on fire or exposed to ...

Michael Shannon Never Stepped Foot On Batman V Superman Set In a recent interview with Metro UK, Shannon talked about his work on BvS. “To be honest, I never went to the set of that movie ever,” he said. “I did some ADR, I recorded some lines that Zack [Snyder, director] wasn’t even sure he was going to use — like, creepy s— I’d be saying to Lex Luthor ...

The car in question is a Mercedes Vision Gran Turismo. This link indicates that the car has been around for at least 4 years (as that's when the article was written) as a concept. It appears to have been designed for the Gran Turismo 6 Playstation game. To quote from the article: The Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo has made its bow at the Los ...

Coincidence, I think. Martha Kane/Wayne has always been Martha since 1939 Martha Clarke/Kent was variously called Mary, Sarah, and perhaps others in the 1940s before settling on Martha in 1951 and sticking with it. There's nothing in the well-rounded Wikipedia articles on both characters to suggest that they'd have cause to conflict in Batman/Superman ...

She would be injured, but she does have superpowered healing abilities During the first battle scene on Themyscira, Diana does sustain an injury/flesh wound on her left arm which the movie seems to imply was a deflected bullet. This happens when Antiope sacrifices herself for Diana (probably deflecting the trajectory of the bullet to save her) This ...

TL;DR: Christian Bale isn't in the movie as he wanted to leave the role after the third Dark Knight film. Ben Affleck was the choice to replace him. Long Answer: Christian Bale** certainly said he was jealous, but that by no means indicates he wanted the role himself. To quote from USA Today: The former Batman ended his tenure as the masked vigilante ...

There were three pictures Left to Right: David Bowie / Superman / Prince It's a tabloid paper headline which implies that a couple of iconic pop characters might have been aliens....like Superman.

You are making so many assumptions here. To make it clear there are two major universes. The Arrowverse, which consists of the TV shows Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Vixen and Supergirl (Supergirl exists in a different Earth ( Earth - 38) than Flash but is still canon to the Arrowverse). Constantine does exist on the same earth as Flash and Arrow. ...

Its not entirely clear why Diana chooses to stay in the outside world at the end, but I think there are two theories that seem to have the most support from the movie: She Has No Choice When she leaves the island with Trevor, her mother tells her If you choose to leave, you may never return. Now, there's two ways to interpret this. It could be simply ...

Was Bruce Wayne's car specifically designed for the movie? Partially yes, it was a concept car designed for a video game and named Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo but was made into a real functioning car for the film and of-course the crew was also involved too as shown in the video below. And Ben Afleck is 6"4, so the car's size was increased by 10% ...

The full quote is "I am the Light - The Way". If you look at larger variation of the promo image you used, you can see that the same quote is etched into the barrel of his gun: Most likely, this is a mis-quote of a famous quote from the Bible, specifically John 14:6: Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the ...

What is the term “God” meant to mean in the DC universe? Exactly what it means in this universe...someone/thing/power who is worshipped as a "God". The only difference is that in the DC Universe (and Marvel Universe for that matter) is that some "Gods" are real. What they are is unclear or rarely explored or just waved away. In the MCU for instance, "Gods"...

If I remember correctly, the woman being interviewed was the wife of the janitor working at Star Labs, who was kidnapped by Parademons in order to be questioned by Steppenwolf about the location of the Mother Boxes. While we never see the woman again, we do see the janitor again - when Flash, Wonder Woman and Batman find Steppenwolf's lair under Gotham ...

It was acid. Just not a melt your face off type acid. It bleached their skin and discolored their hair and clothing. It likely also affected them mentally, but it's debatable if it made them crazy or just proved that they were. It is implied to be the same Ace chemical factory that the Joker is said to have fall in to make him as pale green as we know him. ...

In the film we only see one young Amazonian, Diana and we got to know in the end that she is and rest of the Amazonian seems to be older than her and we can assume all were created by Gods. So I think they didn't reproduce and they are all immortal (until killed) as their comics counterpart. But in comics they did reproduce: In The New 52 :The Amazons ...

This can be explained by watching The Big Picture - CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS Shazam was originally called Captain Marvel and was created by Fawcett after Superman because, as Movie Bob explains, almost everyone was trying to make their own Superman after his success. However National Allied Production, who created Superman and ...

When Jor-El jumped to retrieve the codex he stripped off his outer clothes and wore a black "activity suit". My impression was that the SuperSuit was a customised version of this design (notice that many of the Kryptonians did indeed have cloaks). As to whether it's more modern - that's difficult to answer without knowing the details of Krypton's fashion, ...

As is indicated in the film, native Kryptonians are born genetically pre-ordained to certain roles within their society based on the codex, and for Zod that was to be a military commander. Zod not only excels in this role, he relishes it, it is every fiber of his being and existence. His single purpose in life is to protect Kryptonian society, and bring ...

Two people know where Kal'El lived. Kal'El himself and of course, Lois. The ship in which he came to Earth was suspected to contain the codex and Zod needed to pinpoint the location. So when you need a piece of information, you collect all possible sources of it. Both of them gave away the location making it clear and credible to Zod where Clark lived. Zod ...

This question has arisen quite a lot since Dawn of Justice came out, and while I think it's a fair criticism of Zach Snyder's Batman, the question is usually framed in a way that has a few problems: the idea that this Batman kills for no reason, the idea that the movie never explains why this Batman "changed", and the idea that Batman in general doesn't kill ...

He was contractually obligated to keep the moustache and it was unfortunate that Justice league had to be reshot by Joss Whedon. I am quoting a Nerdist article: Cavill was also filming Mission Impossible 6 at the same time as reshoots and his character had facial hair. He was contractually obligated to keep said facial hair, so the mustache had to be ...
