The Crew of “The Justice League” Movie Give hope for the “TONE” Of the upcoming Film!

Damon Caro and Bryan Hirota had an interview with Heroic Hollywood and talked about the DCEU. The assistant director and effects supervisor both worked on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and have carried over to Justice League. Although they  could not speak freely about the film, Caro did talk about the movie’s tone, and it sounds different from anything seen in the universe so far.

“The interesting thing is, on Man of Steel, in [Zack Snyder’s] head he had the storyline treatment of where they were going to go, and at the beginning of BvS it was even richer and deeper. The arc was BvS was the midway point and the darker movie. Hence what happens at the end; the whole tone of it was darker. If you play your story all at one level, there are no peaks and valleys, there’s no life. The great stories, the Greek tragedies, even life we have to be knocked down before we can build our way up,” Caro said.

“Justice League was always the rebirth of hope and the rise,” he continued. “People try to say that it’s a response to the backlash, and I’d definitely say that criticisms were heard, but it’s not like we threw everything out and started with a blank slate. It’s a bit like Star Wars. Empire Strikes Back? Dark movie! But then Return of the Jedi is the rise and the rebuilding of hope.”

The director also revealed which part  he thinks fans will be enjoy most . “I’m excited for people to see all of these characters together. I can’t be more specific than that unfortunately, but that’s it. Finally getting to see the whole team together. We were on set for the shots when they first had them all together and it was incredible,” he teased.

.FINALLY! ‘The Batman’ script is ready!

He said that a new script for ‘The Batman’ was turned in this month (assuming the Chris Terrio rewrite), also that everyone at Warner Bros., including President and Chief Content Officer Toby Emmerich as well as Ben Affleck are “very happy” with it!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Gets Perfect Score in Test Screening:

In an extremely rare case, Guardians 2 scored a perfect 100 out of 100 at the first test screenings for the film. That means everyone that saw it at the screening gave it a perfect score, according to a report by THR.

That perfect score is higher than their previous top scoring film, The Avengers (though Iron Man 3 also scored high in the 90s). Marvel Studios doesn’t recruit random fans from the LA area, instead brining in “friends and families” for their screenings, which no doubt colors things slightly (and keeps their notoriously tight secrets in place), but the fact they haven’t had a 100 before certainly says something.

Groot Wasn’t Always Going to Stay a Baby in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2:

If you’ve seen a single piece of promotional material for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, then you’ve fallen in love with Baby Groot. It’s not even a question: to see him is to love him. It’s also to recognize and acclaim a bold choice; with Groot’s popularity as the big bruiser of the team in the first Guardians film, leaving him as a diminutive version of the character for the duration of the film was a risk – and originally James Gunn didn’t even think of doing so.

 

“A hundred percent, I started out thinking of him as full grown, and I didn’t have him grow up,” Gunn told ComicBook.com and assembled press at a set visit last spring. Groot was just going to start the film back to full size. “Then all of a sudden I thought, ‘that’s what [fans] would think [we] would do, and I really don’t have to stick with that.'”

 

That’s when he started to think about Baby Groot, having just grown out of the pot, ready for action despite his size.

 

“It could be baby Groot, and baby Groot is very different. He’s a unique little fella, and he’s pretty great in the movie even though he’s not even [physically] there [on set]. But all the time Chris [Pratt, Star-Lord] is like ‘G-d dammit, he’s gonna steal the f***ing movie.’ And it’s nothing. It’s nothing there, but he’s funny even in the dailies we’re watching. And we got the guy on a stick, and people are laughing! Gunn said.

 

Baby Groot has a unique personality, as well, with a little more of a sting to his behavior – and a little less intelligence.

 

“There’s something really cool about him, and he’s funny in the movie. He’s a little jerk too. He can kick some ass… he’s also an idiot. He’s a baby, he’s not very smart,” said the director.
