DC Movies Podcast – Episode 9: Heroes Behind The Heroes


As of the time of recording this episode, the official release date of one of the most anticipated comic book movies: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is only nine days away – March 25, 2016.  In episode 9, your hosts Chris Doucher and Tony Kim talk about the heroes behind the heroes. Who some may call secondary characters, including Lois Lane, Commissioner Gordon and Alfred, we call characters that are just as integral and tough as the heroes they help. In addition, we get you all caught up on some exciting DCEU news for both Justice League and….Lobo! So go ahead, hit that play button and enjoy our latest episode. Thanks for listening and we’ll catch you on the DC Movies Podcast after we’ve all seen Batman v Superman!

Official Batman v Superman synopsis:

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Directed by Zack Snyder, the film also stars Oscar nominees Amy Adams (“American Hustle,” “Man of Steel”) as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg (“The Social Network”) as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane (“Unfaithful,” “Man of Steel”) as Martha Kent, and Laurence Fishburne (“What’s Love Got to Do with It,” “Man of Steel”) as Perry White; Oscar winners Jeremy Irons (“Reversal of Fortune”) as Alfred, and Holly Hunter (“The Piano”) as Senator Finch; and Gal Gadot (the “Fast and Furious” films) as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.

Snyder directed from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, with Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and David S. Goyer serving as executive producers.

Snyder’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Larry Fong (“300,” “Watchmen”) and production designer Patrick Tatopoulos (“300: Rise of an Empire”), and from his “Man of Steel” team, editor David Brenner, costume designer Michael Wilkinson and visual effects supervisor John “DJ” DesJardin. The music is by Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer (“The Lion King,” “Man of Steel”) and Junkie XL (“Mad Max: Fury Road”).

  • J.K. Simmons played a Chief of Police on The Closer for seven seasons so I think he’ll be a great Commissioner in Gotham City. I highly recommend The Closer if you’d like to see more of him in a more serious and police-oriented role. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0458253/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    Lois Lane has had red hair in the past. Noel Neill had red hair in the Adventures of Superman TV show and Dan Jurgens’ Lois Lane in the comics had red hair. In fact, to me, Amy Adams’ Lois looks like Jurgen’s Lois come to life. Amy even correctly addressed the red hair issue in this interview: http://www.hulu.com/watch/500528

    Have they confirmed that Chris Pine is going to play Steve and his grandson? Or is that just speculation?
