MUSIC VIDEO: Boardroom Heroes – “New Wage”

Today, our friends in DC-based skate punk band Boardroom Heroes released a music video for their song “New Wage.” The video takes place in DC, and gives you a sneak peak into life in their hometown.

However, what makes this video special to us is that not only is it by a band we all love, but the video was also directed and produced by Under The Gun staffer Tyler Osborne. For more information about his work, or if you would like to work on a video with him, check out out his studio ToZ Productions.

You can read what he had to say at the end of this post.

Ben Affleck’s Batman Revealed

Yesterday we were given a tease of the new Batmobile for the upcoming Batman vs. Superman. Director Zack Snyder claimed that the tarp would come off today, and boy did he deliver.

Not only have we been given a nicer shot of the Batmobile, but we have also been given our first look at Ben Affleck’s Batman. Bulked up, brooding, black, and butt-chinned, Affleck’s Batman is quite reminiscent of The Dark Knight Returns comic arc. Sporting much shorter ears, a giant bat symbol on the chest, as well as a more cloth like looking Batsuit, this is surely a …

‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Release Moved To May 2016

Holy delays Batman!

In a move that is not that surprising, the upcoming DC epic, Batman vs. Superman, has been pushed back a whopping ten months, from July 2015 to May 2016. With all the news buzzing around about a possible Nightwing, Wonder Woman casting, DC cameos galore, and a massive budget, it comes as no surprise that the film’s production has been extended.

This is a massive undertaking for Warner Bros, and at times, it seems that they are trying way too hard to catch up to The Avengers with only one film under their belt. Although saddening …

UTG EXCLUSIVE: Stream Makeshift Shelters’ Debut EP, ‘The Cautious End of Things’

Today Under the Gun Review is proud to exclusively stream the debut EP for DC-based indie rock band Makeshift Shelters. The EP, titled The Cautious End of Things, is a cathartic short release that is so catchy that you’d think a more established band wrote it already. We already reviewed the first single from the EP earlier this month, and we’re happy to announce that the rest of the EP keeps up the same high quality as the title track. The Cautious End of Things is a great introduction from Makeshift Shelters, and really leaves our staff …

Nightwing And Wonder Woman Joining ‘Batman Vs. Superman’?

Not going to lie, I am a little surprised. Reports are coming in that there have been casting calls for the roles of Nightwing, and Wonder Woman, for the upcoming DC film, Batman vs. Superman. There is still no word if that is the official title or not, so we’ll just go with it.

According to Latino Review, Dick Grayson will be involved in the film, though he will no longer be at Batman’s side. In the comic canon, Dick Grayson grows tired of the Robin persona, and decides to leave Gotham and the under arm of Batman. …

UTG PREMIERE: Makeshift Shelters – “The Cautious End of Things”

Today at Under the Gun Review we are really excited to share with you the debut track from DC’s newest indie rock outfit, Makeshift Shelters. The title track off their debut record, The Cautious End of Things, is a story about dealing with the fallout of a relationship gone sour, and the mental toll it can take.

Makeshift Shelters is brand new to the indie scene, but feels more put together and advanced then just some random group of kids playing in their garage. “The Cautious End of Things,” as well as the rest of the EP, is …
