COMIC REEL: “Batman V Superman” Running Time Revealed; “Walking Dead” Showrunner Dishes About New Romance


If you can’t wait for “Batman V Superman” to hit theaters and want to watch 10 straight minutes of footage compiled from every trailer and teaser out there, well, you’re in luck.

A trio of lo-res scans of behind-the-scenes pics have also appeared on Twitter.

AMC has officially announced the running time of the film: as previously reported, the film will run for 151 minutes.

And lastly, there’s a new Batmobile-centric clip.

Opens March 25, 2016


You can read a recap of last night’s episode, “The Next World,” right here. AMC has also released a promo and scene from next week’s episode, “Knots Untied.”

Showrunner Scott M. Gimple spoke to TV Line about last night’s spoilery development between two of the show’s leads. Rick and Michonne’s relationship took a romantic turn during last night’s episode, and Gimple said he’s been interested in that story for a long time.

“It was a story I was interested in pursuing for a long time, even before I was running the show,” said Gimple. “Then, starting Season 4, my overall goal was to bring them to a unique place of respect and intimacy, possibly/probably leading to romance… At this point in the story, the characters have fought their battles and won their home, their safety. Over the past weeks, they’ve found a certain peace. And that’s when these two characters could realize what they had.”

Concept artist Andy Poon has posted some of the work he’s done for this season’s CW shows, including looks at “Flash’s” Geomancer, Doctor Light and Jay Garrick as well as “Legends of Tomorrow’s” White Canary and Firestorm. The pieces work with costume designs by Maya Mani.


“Entertainment Weekly” has learned that “Justice League Part One” will begin filming on April 11. The news comes from both director Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. Snyder is currently in the UK preparing to start production, which will begin just a few weeks after the release of “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.” “Justice League” will shoot at Warner Bros.’ Leavesden studios in southeast England.

“The idea that we could begin to boot up a Justice League concept was a cool thing,” Snyder told EW. “It was a little bit of an ‘about time’ moment, and I don’t blame [the studio] for feeling that way, because it’s a long time coming. But I do feel like it’s a little bit of a creative hurdle. It seems like an easy thing to do at first glance, the idea that, ‘Oh, we just get the rest of the superheroes in there.’ But you have to [establish] a world where they can exist.”
