For starters, this is NOT an April Fool’s joke. We record Heroic Insider on Wednesday evenings, edit on Thursday and drop on Friday mornings. We are aiming to release future installments on Thursdays instead. On the second episode this week, I introduce the Heroic Scoop Drop where I dish on the hot heroic rumors currently making the rounds here in Los Angeles. This episode also features Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld who talks about the success of the film, Deadpool 2, and X-Force.
In the prologue of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Bruce Wayne tells Diana Prince of his intention to assemble the metahumans discovered on Lex Luthor’s hard drive. Zack Snyder recently gave his reasoning to Entertainment Weekly on why Bruce should be the one who forms the Justice League.
I wanted Bruce Wayne to build the Justice League,” Snyder tells EW. “I felt like with Superman around, it’s a different conversation when you create the Justice League, right? It’s like, ‘Me and Superman, we want to make a Justice League.’ [Other heroes would be] like, ‘Okay, yeah, I’ll join!’ I just feel like Bruce Wayne having to go out and find these seven samurai by himself, that’s a lot more interesting of a premise.
So it looks like Bruce Wayne has his work cut out for him in the upcoming Justice League Part One. Want to find out the setup of the upcoming movie and what cool tech Bruce will have in it? Check out the episode above. I also report on the latest with the standalone Batman film. Filming on Justice League Part One begins in exactly ten days.
