Jason Momoa talks Aquaman and his part in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After his version of DC’s Aquaman was seen around the globe last week, Jason Momoa has been able to open up about his role in the expanding DC Cinematic Universe, and what part the King of Atlantis will play in that, as well as next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly whilst promoting his new series The Red Road, Momoa spoke about how the water-based hero fits into Zack Snyder plans’s, and just how big his role is opposite Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader, Henry Cavill’s Man on Steel and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman in the 2016 release.

“It’s Batman and Superman,” he says. “It’s not my movie. It’s the first time in history to have them both on the screen together, and I’m just excited to see those two up there… Justice League is still quite a ways away. »

'Batman v Superman' Has No Aquaman Action Scenes?

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jason Momoa seems to back up reports that his Aquaman is not featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice too much. He hasn't shot any action scenes, teasing that its Clark and Bruce's movie, not his. He goes onto talk about his solo movie, Justice League Part 1, and what it was like to see Aquaman revealed for the first time, which came earlier than expected.

Promoting his series The Red Road, Jason Momoa claims that the Aquaman reveal will actually help his show. He then goes onto say that he has not been involved in 'too much action' in terms of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, hinting that he won't have much to do until Justice League hits a year later in 2017. While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has wrapped, there is the possibility he could be called in for reshoots. »

Henry Cavill To Star In Simon West-Directed Thriller Stratton

25 February 2015 1:18 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Before we catch sight of Henry Cavill reprising his Man Of Steel role in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, he’s committing to a variety of different projects, including this latest on from the director of Con Air. Variety reports that Simon West has signed to direct Cavill in Stratton, a special forces action thriller based on Duncan Falconer’s series of novels.

In the title role, Cavill will play a Special Boat Service operative who’s repeatedly sent into dangerous scenarios when British Intelligence are at their wits end. For Stratton, he will be sent across the globe as he’s tasked with tracking down an international terrorist cell. There are eight of Falconer’s books that chronicle Stratton’s adventures, but the movie is said to be based on the first, entitled The Hostage.

Here’s an abbreviated synopsis (via Amazon):

Hans Zimmer briefly talks Batman v Superman score, writing individual themes for each hero

25 February 2015 12:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Catching up with Hans Zimmer at the Oscars this past weekend, MTV managed to grab a few comments from the composer about his work on the upcoming DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, asking him whether he plans to develop individual themes for each of the heroes.

“I’m trying, I’ll put it that way,” states Zimmer, who has previously stated that he plans to tackle Superman, whilst handing Batman over to Junkie Xl. “We’re in early days. But yes, of course, ideally that’s what you want to do.”

Zimmer was also asked if Warner Bros. has him down to score any future DC movies, with the composer responding that: “Look, the studio is going to hedge its bet, if I ruin this one…. And at the same time you have to remember I come from ten years of doing Batman, so it’s really »

Supergirl May Be Casting Superman For Its Pilot

25 February 2015 7:55 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Apparently Kara needs Kal-El in order to kick off a new series? If casting reports are to be believed, that appears to be the case for CBS’ Supergirl, which is reportedly looking for someone to play Superman in the show’s pilot. The information comes from ProjectCasting.com and was first reported by Kryptonsite.com, which pointed out that details in the casting call make it pretty obvious that the role Supergirl is trying to fill is that of Superman. Now, before you get too excited or too upset, depending on your opinion about this news, it appears that this will not be a major role (and maybe not even a speaking role), as the casting call says that the series is “looking for a body double.” Not to mention that, most likely due to possible conflicts with DC’s current movie plans and the fact that Henry Cavill is presently playing the Man… »

Recently, MTV News caught up to Hans Zimmer at the big 2015 Oscar Awards the other night. He's been hired to score the new "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action flick, and revealed that he will not actually be scoring the Batman parts to avoid betraying the work he did with Christopher Nolan's Batman.

Then , of course, Hans will work on scoring the other parts of the film involving Superman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and more. Check it out, below. Batman v Superma stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg ,and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, »

New Batman V Superman Aquaman Unite The Seven Details Revealed,New Clip

24 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Recently, "Emergency Awesome" hit us up with a new clip (below), explaining the secret meaning of the "Unite The Seven" words that were plastered all over the new Jason Momoa aka Aquaman promo pic. He just basically said they are trading the original Martian Man Hunter character for the Cyborg character, claiming that he's more easier to market to the general public than a Martian man. Anyways the "Unite The Seven" is definitely in reference to the other Justice League members, and I'm sure we'll see individual promo pics of them, arriving in the not too distant future. Batman v Superma stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg ,and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, Jeremy Irons,Jason Momoa as Aquaman, »

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - 'Metropolis Memorial'

24 February 2015 12:21 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Further to "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" filming a memorial ceremony in the city of 'Metropolis', paying tribute to the thousands who died during the alien battles in director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel", take another look @ footage highlighting the carnage from that first film:

"...the damage in the film encompassed a one-mile diameter and the aftermath of the attack yielded 129,000 dead, more than 250,000 missing (most of whom would also have died in the battle) and almost one million injured. The damage done to the city's infrastructure cost about $700 billion. 

"...in the pantheon of superheroes, 'Superman' is the most recognized and revered character of all time. 'Clark Kent'/'Kal-El' (Henry Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. 

"Transported to Earth years ago from 'Krypton', an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question...Why am I here?
