Adaptation of 2003 graphic novel 'Superman: Red Son' (in which Superman grows up in the USSR) rumoured to be in the works.
After Zack Snyder called the shots on ‘Man of Steel,’ ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and the upcoming ‘Justice League,’ it looks like there’s a new director in the frame for Superman’s next solo movie. According to Collider, Warner Bros and DC are pressing on with a second ‘Man of Steel’ movie starring Henry Cavill, and they want British director Matthew Vaughn to take the helm.
Yahoo Movies has the exclusive first look at DC Collectibles’ upcoming line of premium, screen-accurate 12-inch statues based on the Justice League lineup. The meticulously detailed poly-resin sculpts were designed in coordination with Warner Bros. and present our best look yet at the costumed characters who make up DC’s premier hero team: Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Each piece, mounted on a Justice League stand, will retail for $150, be limited to a run of 5,000 copies and will be available timed to the film’s Nov. 17 opening.
Denzel Washington and Viola Davis may have the biggest Oscar buzz, but there is simply no Fences star cuter than the drama’s precocious young star Saniyya Sidney. Sidney, who has also appeared in Roots and American Horror Story, recalled her reaction to first hearing about the film, a family drama set in 1950s Pittsburgh and based on the Tony Award-winning play by August Wilson.
After an impressive first season, Supergirl fast became one of my favourite superhero television shows currently airing. What is interesting though is that, even amongst those who like Supergirl, there’s one character who is typically quite unpopular – that’s Jimmy Olsen, as played by Mehcad Brooks.
One minute you’re walking the red carpet, the next you’re flipping burgers. That’s not quite where these 10 screen actors found themselves, but they did choose the real world – and a job you or we might do – over the glamour of Hollywood. Image credits: Getty, Rex_Shutterstock
In an interview with Hey U Guys, while appearing at the Showmaster’s Film & Comic Con in Glasgow, the actress who played Lois Lane in the original four movies was asked why fans tend to return to Richard Donner’s classic original, over the more recent efforts from Zack Snyder and Bryan Singer. “Superman responds to women by saving them, saves the children and beats up the bad guys, if you will.
It looks as though Superman is back… with his classic spit curl. Obviously, we all knew that Superman would return for ‘Justice League’. Although he may have been seemingly bumped off at the end of ‘Batman V Superman’, there’s no ‘Justice League’ without him… and with the ominous scene of Clark’s coffin right at the end, it was always obvious – Superman would be back.
The upcoming ‘Justice League’ movie features some of DC’s biggest superheroes finally getting together on the big screen. Appearing on Instagram, ‘Batman V Superman’ star Henry Cavill has unveiled a teaser close-up of Superman’s new costume with the hashtag #Superman.
It’s a moment that spurs Batman (Ben Affleck) to form the Justice League with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), but we already know that - as is so often the case in the comic book world - Kal El’s death won’t stick. In the famed 'Death of Superman’ storyline that inspired 'Dawn of Justice’s climatic moments, Superman’s demise is short-lived too.
Talk about a dynamic duo. Warner Bros. has released the first photo of newly-christened Superman Tyler Hoechlin alongside onscreen cousin, 'Supergirl' star Melissa Benoist.
It’s been an exciting few days for DC fans, with the company releasing trailers for their highly anticipated upcoming movies Wonder Woman and Justice League, as well as their popular television programs The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Vixen, and Arrow. (Unfortunately, there was no trailer for the wonderful Supergirl, which has found a new home on the CW after an excellent first season at CBS, but I’ve no doubt we’ll start to see some material from that show soon.) Generally speaking, these have all been received well, drumming up an even greater level of suspense in both dedicated fans and the wider public.
In the comics, it’s normally the villains who play tricks on the heroes, but Henry Cavill decided to flip the script at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, by playing a joke on Will Smith. The 33-year-old Brit, who plays Superman in the DC Comics movie universe, took to the show floor wearing a ‘V For Vendetta’ mask to prank Will Smith, who plays the villainous Deadshot in ‘Suicide Squad’, and the moment was captured on camera. - Marvel v DC: Who Won Comic-Con?
In a podcast last week, as he was offering his critique of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, inveterate comic nerd Kevin Smith noted something about the performance of Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader: “He moved the way that Batman moves and fights … [it was] the best cinematic presentation of Batman fighting you’ve ever seen in a movie. It looked like the video game, almost.” Smith was onto something with that tossed-off remark, something that explains the polarized reaction to film. Batman v Superman is more relatable as a video game.
With less than a month to go before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in theaters, clues about the top-secret plot — especially the cause of the titular acrimony between two of DC Comics’ marquee heroes — are at a premium.
The final Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer has arrived and it gives us more of an inkling of why Batman is v-ing Superman, while also showing us Lex Luthor oozing evil and revealing more of Wonder Woman’s devastating power. From there, we get more some background on why exactly Bruce Wayne is concerned about Superman (Henry Cavill).
With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad on the horizon, DC has two of the year’s most anticipated films. Yahoo Movies has an exclusive sneak peek at DC’s inaugural line of highly detailed, virtually photorealistic figures created using 3D sculpts of the films’ stars. “We’re not holding anything back,” Geoff Johns, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, tells Yahoo.
Turns out that the elder superhero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (in theaters March 25) isn’t Ben Affleck’s “older, broken” Batman; it’s Gal Gadot’s remarkably well-preserved Wonder Woman. The new Empire cover story on the film has revealed (via Comic Book Movie) that the Amazon heroine is literally ancient: 5,000 years old, to be exact. Below, a few more new things we’ve learned about Bats, Supes, and Wonder Woman, including tidbits from the Empire story, brand new photos, and two TV spots that delve into the ultimate superhero showdown. Wonder Woman retired prior to the events of Batman v.
We’ve been focusing on — and indeed Warner Bros. has been emphasizing — the Batman v Superman showdown aspect of the upcoming DC-based superhero flick. That film, however, has a subtitle: Dawn of Justice. And today, the Justice League dawned online.
Between Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (due in theaters March 25) and the 50th anniversary of the campy Adam West-powered Batman TV series (it debuted on Jan. 12, 1966), the brickmeisters will be releasing four different sets centered on the Caped Crusader. First up is a trio of models based on Batman v. Superman that just hit stores this month. Then there’s Kryptonite Interception ($30), which includes the Dark Knight, his tricked-out new Batmobile, and a bunch of Lex Luthor’s henchmen.
The DC superheroes are ready for their close-ups. Clearly unafraid of Star Wars’ mighty grip on the cultural conversation, on Wednesday, Warner Bros. and DC had the three main stars of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice post new posters featuring their characters to social media. There’s not a whole lot of new material here to take in or pick apart, but Ben Affleck did provide a closer look at Batman’s wicked new armor, which looks like Ironman’s Hulkbuster suit with even more impressive abs. #BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/seVdBBMh7x— Ben Affleck (@BenAffleck) December 16, 2015 As for Superman, we already know what his costume looks like, but are still impressed by Henry Cavill’s jaw line and perfectly cleft chin.
