Since the version was confirmed to be released on HBO Max in 2021, fans have been waiting to see this version for sometime. Synder himself has confirmed the movie will be 4 hours long, however will be broken up into 4 parts for the streaming service. Here is the first look

Black Adam is slated for release December 2021.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Game First Look
Rocksteady Studios, primary developer of the Batman Arkham games, revealed its long-awaited next game, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, with a trailer and some brief details. In Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, players take control of Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, and King Shark, who are tasked with taking down a mind-controlled Justice League. It can be played solo, or with up to four players cooperatively. If you’re playing single-player with AI-controlled teammates, you’ll be able to switch between different characters at will.
The Batman First Trailer
Last, but not least was the biggest announcement out of the Fandome event which was a first look at Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Fans were very worried about Robert Pattinson taking over the role as Bruce Wayne/Batman when the announcement was made, however this trailer might actually change your mind. In this trailer we got a look at Robert Pattinson’s darker, disheveled Batman, glimpses of Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman (although Reeves stated she isn’t Catwoman yet in this film), Colin Farrell as The Penguin, and Jeffrey Wright as Detective Jim Gordon. Judging by clues in the trailer, The Batman isn’t set in the ’90s as originally speculated, and The Riddler seems to be the main villain of The Batman, despite never seeing actor Paul Dano on screen in the new footage.
So with all that being said, what do you think DC Fans? For many years, Marvel has seemed to be winning in the cinematic space, however this appears that DC is finally heading in the right direction. Let us know what you think
