Watching a director's cut of a film you've previously seen can be a fascinating experience. It can show you just how substantial an impact even the slightest bit of editing can have on a project.

As much as diehard fans of Warner Bros.’ DC movies might not want to admit it, the fact of the matter is that most of the studio’s films so far have been, well, not great. The studio’s less-than-stellar track record made it kind of difficult to get too excited for Shazam!, a property you wouldn’t immediately think would be one of the major linchpins of DC’s (still relatively new) cinematic universe.

Aquaman is Warner Bros.' latest entry into the ever-expanding DCEU, but it's also something much more fascinating on a technical level. It's an action movie that takes place mainly underwater, something that could either be brilliant or absolutely terrible. While the first images from the film don't give us an idea of which way the tide will turn, they are pretty to look at.

Say what you will about Zachary Levi and his starring role in Warner Bros.' upcoming Shazam! solo movie, but you have to respect the man's unflinching pride in that (questionable) suit that the studio is taking its sweet time in letting everyone get a proper look at. You also have to respect his very considerate response to one "hater" recently.

A lot of bad edits, behind-the-scenes antics, and other questionable decisions turned DC's Suicide Squad from a cool antihero saga into a weird, confusing mess. Jared Leto's Joker took the biggest hit - making the much-hyped "method" character a glorified cameo. Now, director David Ayer is shining another light on the villain-that-could-have-been, revealing how the Joker's schemes originally included an alliance with Enchantress herself.

Wonder Woman 2 isn't coming out until November 2019, but director Patty Jenkins is already starting to put the pieces into place. She's sharing a few new details on what to expect in the upcoming film, as well as how the theme of love will carry over from the last film. Hint: It's a person.
