Every day I drag my increasingly aged and decrepit body out of bed, log-on to the computer, fire up the site and try and find some interesting breaking movie news to share with our beloved Outposters. Hoping not to have more news about Justice League to write up.
Only to discover that, while I have been asleep several time zones ahead of him, Zack Snyder has been at it again. Damn it Zack, don’t you ever sleep? Come March 18th this will all be over, we can stop feeling like Ain’t It Justice League News at times and return to some normalcy, like bitching about anything Disney does with Star Wars or something. Until then… guess what? Breaking Justice League news!
Two weeks to go and it has been revealed that the four-hour superhero extravaganza will be divided into six chapters, each with a title card of their own. A Superhero Kill Bill if you will? Here are the chapters:
PART 1: “Don’t Count On It, Batman”
PART 2: The Age of Heroes
PART 3: Beloved Mother, Beloved Son
PART 4: “Change Machine”
PART 5: All the King’s Horses
PART 6: “Something Darker”
In addition, Snyder has dropped additional footage and another trailer via his usual preferred social media channels. First up is a rather nice gif showing us Steppenwolf’s assault on the Themyscira mother box:

Secondly, we get a short Batman-centric trailer that includes a shot of Batman standing on the tank-like Batmobile directly out of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.

Despite the near constant barrage of marketing driven single handedly by Zack Snyder, I am still interested to see this as some kind of experiment. After the long journey to bring this to the screen I am kind of rooting for him.
