Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice teaser trailer news

4 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Zack Snyder nears the end of the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice shoot, news lands that the trailer might be closer than thought.

In a week where one teaser trailer has already proven itself rather popular (you can probably guess which one), we now learn that the first teaser for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice will be with us this side of Christmas. That's a surprise: given that the film isn't due in cinemas until March 2016, we weren't expecting footage to be released for some time yet. However, Batman On Film is reporting that the first teaser trailer is "complete and ready to go".

Furthermore, the site reports that "the teaser will be revealed this fall along with a November or December film release". If that's the case, then the biggest Warner Bros title between now and Christmas is The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies. »

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance) – The Review

5 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“A thing is a thing, not what is said of that thing.” That’s a message on a postcard displayed on the dressing room mirror of Riggan Thompson (Michael Keaton) in Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance). With that phrase in mind, I feel it’s best to simply say, “Go see the movie. Then we can talk about it.” I could leave this review at that considering the film brings into question the role of the critic when an actor, director, or artist puts their heart and soul on the line for his or her art. But just plainly urging you to see the movie is also counter-productive when there is so much love, effort, and ideas pulsating from this work of art. And it is just that. Birdman is a work of art. Don’t take my word for it though, go and see it for yourself. »

Is the 'Batman v Superman' Trailer Ready and Coming Soon?

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is showing no signs of slowing down, with recent reports surfacing that the crew is building a massive set in New Mexico, with shooting also slated to begin in Chicago next month. While it remains unclear when principal photography will actually be complete, a new report from Batman-on-Film claims that Warner Bros. already has a teaser trailer "ready to go."

The site's sources claim that the teaser will be attached to one of Warner Bros.' November or December releases, which could be one of four possibilities: Horrible Bosses 2 (November 26), Inherent Vice (December 12), The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies (December 17) or American Sniper (December 25, in limited release). While none of these are superhero titles, if word got out that the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was attached to any one of these films, it would »

Is Batman V Superman Going To Focus More On Batman?

13 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While the prospect of seeing a Batman/Superman live-action team-up movie has been an exciting thought for comic book fans, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice might not be the film fans had dreamed about for years. Aside from the fact this film is essentially serving as a prologue to Justice League Part One, a large portion of the attention on this production has centered on Ben Affleck.s Batman, or Batfleck as the Internet affectionately calls him. One would think Superman and Batman would the same amount of coverage, but despite the two of them sharing the title, there.s a chance that the Caped Crusader will be the headlining character of the movie. Insiders talking to Batman-On-Film.com say that the first teaser trailer for Batman V Superman will be "Batman heavy." Keep in mind that this film is meant to be a follow-up to Man of Steel, »

Is the Batman v Superman Teaser Coming Sooner Than Expected?

14 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice won't hit theaters untli 2016, but eager fans are still anxious for footage from the upcoming film.  While many of us expected to see the first official teaser trailer for the film in Spring 2015, a new report suggests it might happen in just a couple months.  Come inside to learn more!

While everyone is still reeling from the awesomeness that is the Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer, fans are now hoping for a glimpse at what Warner Bros./DC has in store for Batman v. Superman.  To be honest, my first reaction to these comments are, you're going to be disappointed.  Dawn of Justice isn't hitting theaters until March 2016, and even if DC decides to give fans an early look, many of us weren't expecting to see anything until a year before the release (marketing doesn't even normally start that soon).  That would put »

Christian Bale will play Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic being penned by Aaron Sorkin for Sony Pictures. As TheWrap was first to report, Bale has long been a favorite for the role but Sorkin confirmed his involvement this week in an interview with Bloomberg TV.

Batman v Superman Teaser Trailer Is Supposedly Ready; Focuses On Batman

16 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to sources for Batman-On-Film the first teaser trailer for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been completed and could be attached to a film coming out this Fall.  Which film that will be, is unclear at this time. The one thing that was made clear, was that the trailer would focus on the Caped Crusader and not the red and blue boy scout. This will surely disappoint Henry Cavill ("The Count of Monte Cristo") fans - if true. While on the other side of the fence, this will surely make Ben Affleck ("Pearl Harbor") fans very happy. Yahoo! According to a few of Bof’s BvS insiders, the first teaser trailer for the film is complete and ready to go. The overt hint I got from these folks is that the teaser will be revealed this Fall along with a November or December film release (and online, »

It's Official: Christian Bale Will Play Steve Jobs in a New Biopic

17 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Last week, word surfaced that Christian Bale was in talks to play Steve Jobs, and now, he's been confirmed for the role. Bale will portray the late Apple cofounder in an upcoming movie based on Walter Isaacson's 2011 biography, Steve Jobs. "We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range, and that's Chris Bale," said screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. "He didn't have to audition." This project has been tossed around quite a bit, with names like Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, and Leonardo DiCaprio attached at various points. While David Fincher was once on board to direct, Danny Boyle is now at the helm. What do you think - can you see Bale as Jobs? Perhaps more so than Ashton Kutcher? »

Christian Bale Confirmed To Play Steve Jobs In Danny Boyle’s Untitled Biopic

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Aaron Sorkin has kicked rumors and speculation to the curb and confirmed that Christian Bale will indeed play Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle’s as-yet-untitled biopic.

News comes via Bloomberg, where The West Wing scribe formally confirmed Bale’s involvement in the film, stating that The Dark Knight is “gonna crush it” as the late visionary.

“We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale. It’s an extremely difficult part and he’s gonna crush it. There was a meeting. The role is an extremely difficult role; he has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined. There isn’t a scene or frame that he’s not in.”

While the casting of Bale is hardly surprising, early reports indicated that he was one of the many actors in contention for the role, »

10 Things You Need To Know About Batman Vs Superman

21 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Brothers

We already know a lot about the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, even despite Warner Bros’ stoic secrecy. It’s already one of the most anticipated, talked-about films currently in production, and it is exactly the kind of blockbuster that will make a fortune at the box office (possibly despite its quality).

However, while financial success is essentially a given, creative success is another question, and that’s what has fans both hardcore and casual alike curious. How will Dawn of Justice come together? Can it live up to Christopher Nolan’s popular Batman trilogy? Those are the key questions.

We know Henry Cavill is back as Clark Kent/Superman and that Amy Adams is back as Lois Lane as well. Diane Lane and Laurence Fishbourne are back also, resuming their roles from Man of Steel. And of course we know Ben Affleck has been »

Outrage Over Superhero Casting

22 October 2014 8:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Warner Bros Pictures and DC Comics recently released their full slate of upcoming comic book movies through the year 2020. Outside of Justice League and Wonder Woman, two other announcements really stood out. The Flash and Aquaman will be getting their own films in 2018. With The Flash TV show just premiering to great numbers it makes sense to bring that character to the cineplexes. Well DC has other ideas about who will be playing The Flash.

Along with the announcement of the film, it was announced that The Flash would be played by Ezra Miller. The young actor is best known for his roles in We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Critics have praised his performance in both films and he is looking like a standout star of this generation. Well that wasn’t enough for comic book fans.

Ray Fisher Talks DC "Cyborg" Film Reveal

22 October 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Best known as a stage actor, Ray Fisher has garnered a lot of attention for landing the plum role of DC hero Cyborg in the various upcoming films of Warner Brothers' DC cinematic universe.

Before the announcement last week, it was already known Fisher would have a part in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Beyond that though it was anyone's guess as to what he would be in, even Fisher himself was in the dark.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, the actor revealed that he had no idea Warners would announce a full "Cyborg" solo movie in 2020 until just a few hours before the announcement when the producers revealed the news to him:

"I didn't know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character. When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information [the Cyborg film], I found out then and there. »

Akshay Kumars Jaanwar to release opposite Shah Rukh Khans Happy New Year

22 October 2014 3:38 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

What Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck couldn't do, Akshay Kumar has dared to attempt. Take on Shah Rukh Khan in his Diwali domain.

While the Brad and Ben starrers Fury and Gone Girl were pushed ahead so as to not clash with Shah Rukh's Happy New Year, Akshay Kumar's Jaanwar creeps stealthily into the theatres alongside the Srk monster-release.

Suddenly out of the blue Shah Rukh Khan has competition. If we can call it that. Shah Rukh's eagerly awaited Happy New Year which no other film dared to take on, has now an Akshay Kumar starrer to reckon with.

The film is Suneel Darshan's 1999 hit Jaanwar which is being flash-released this Diwali in a new digitally enhanced avatar.

Explaining his decision to suddenly release the film on the same day as Happy New Year producer-director Suneel Darshan says, "The re-release was over-due. And what better time than Diwali? »

Ray Fisher Talks About ‘Cyborg’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

22 October 2014 2:29 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Sometimes things work out for the better.

Actor Ray Fisher was taken by surprise after Warner Brothers announced a “Cyborg” movie set for release in 2020. The actors discovered the new just a few hours before it was publicly revealed earlier this month.

“I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character,” Fisher told Entertainment Weekly. “When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.”

He signed on in March for a cameo in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and recently wrapped shooting on his part. He kept plot details a secret, but confirmed meeting many other superheroes like Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Batman (Ben Affleck).

So what can he say about this movie? »

The Conjuring Director James Wan To Helm A DC Comics Movie?

21 October 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier today, it was announced that The Conjuring director James Wan had officially signed on for the horror film’s sequel, which was recently delayed and is now slated for release in 2016. However, buried in that news story was a little hint pointing toward another project on Wan’s slate: A DC Comics film.

Wan’s Conjuring 2 directing gig comes with a nice producing deal at New Line Cinema, but Warner Brothers is interested in keeping him behind the camera for as long as possible. They see him as “an emerging major filmmaker” and they hope he will grow in that capacity on their lot. So, what better way to keep Wan around for a bit longer than hand him the reins to one of the recently-announced high profile comic book films slated for release between 2016 and 2020?

The director will reportedly “make an important movie for New Line and Warner Bros or DC. »

'Cyborg' Star Talks 'Justice League' and 'Batman v Superman'

21 October 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Warner Bros. announced in April that Broadway star Ray Fisher will make his feature film debut as Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was believed to be a smaller role that would expand in Justice League. Little did we know that Warner Bros. planned on making this 27-year-old actor a major part of their DC Comics movie universe, after last week's announcement that he will have his own Cyborg movie in 2020. During a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor also confirmed that he will star in both Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, along with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and his stand-alone Cyborg movie.

The actor revealed that he was just as surprised as the fans, since he was told only a few hours before last week's huge announcement that he will be getting his own Cyborg movie. »

Ray Fisher didn’t know about Cyborg solo movie until the official announcement from Warner Bros.

21 October 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ray Fisher – who is set to portray Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in the DC movie universe – was just as surprised as fans when it was announced there would be a Cyborg standalone film in 2020. The actor found out at the same time the fans when Warner Bros. and DC announced their film line up last week.

Fisher told Entertainment Weekly: “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character, when I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.”

Newcomer Fisher will first be seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will likely appear in both Justice League movies before taking the lead of his own movie in 2020.

So look out for Fisher »
