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 »

According to a new report from Batman News, Entertainment Weekly got a chance to chat up "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" Cyborg star, Ray Fisher (left), and he gave a few details about the filming process, talked about the new "Cyborg" solo movie, and more. First, he commented on the solo Cyborg movie, stating: "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.” Next, Ray talked about how great it was to work on the Batman v Superman set, revealing that he never did get to see Superman aka Henry Cavill or The Flash aka Ezra Miller. "I met everyone in the Justice League except Henry Cavill and Ezra Miller. »
The 27 year old Ray Fisher first got the attention of Hollywood after playing Muhammad Ali in Fetch Clay, Make Man. Standing at 6-foot-4, a ripped 212 pounds, and a classically trained veteran of the Shakespeare Theater of New Jersey, Fisher seemed destined to be a superhero.
Fisher likely signed a gigantic, multi picture deal with Warner Bros., but the studio gave him no clue as to what those movies might be. Just a couple of hours before Warner Bros. announced its eleven movie plan, the studio informed Fisher that his character Cyborg would be getting his own solo movie in 2020. Not bad for an actor who had zero film credits before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

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. »

It was only last week when Warner Bros. and DC lifted the lid on their expansive cinematic blueprint that openly confirmed a hoard of big-budget superhero films. From Suicide Squad to Wonder Woman and Shazam to Aquaman, ardent fans of the comic book series were overjoyed when the show-stopping news was first unveiled. Only, for Ray Fisher — the Broadway star who has signed on as Cyborg — the announcement was news to him as well.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 27-year old spoke candidly of his involvement in the rapidly-expanding DC universe, stating that he had no idea that Warner Bros. had planned a solo movie for his take on one Victor Stone.
“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. »

The actor - who will star in the solo movie - has revealed that he was only told about the plans hours before the official announcement last week.
"I didn't know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character," Fisher told EW.
"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 standalone film."
Fisher is best known for his portrayal of Muhammad Ali in the off-Broadway play Fetch Clay, Make Man.
"I'm a long-game player and didn't see any of this happening until at least my 40s, »
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 – 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.”
So look out for Fisher »

Nobody told Ray Fisher the plan. The 27-year-old had no idea he was set to explode into Hollywood movie stardom, top-lining as the title character in a Cyborg movie set for release in 2020. In fact, producers called the New Jersey-born theater actor on Oct. 15 with the heads-up only hours before Warner Bros. publicly revealed its slate of mega-budget superhero movies tied to the DC Cinematic Universe—Wonder Woman, The Justice League, Suicide Squad, and Shazam among them. “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character,” says Fisher, who was hired in »

During an appearance at Atlanta’s Walker Stalker convention this past weekend, actor Jason Momoa reportedly spoke about his newly confirmed role as Aquaman in the expanding DC Comics cinematic universe.
According to Comicbook.com, Momoa explained the secrecy surrounding the role, telling fans, “Listen, I was asked to play it. You know, you audition and stuff like that, but the fact is you’ve just got to keep it quiet… I was just trying to respect Warner Bros. and everyone’s wishes. I’m really, really happy that I don’t have to be quiet anymore, because that’s really hard for me.”
On the subject of his rumored appearance in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Momoa demurred, “I really wish I could say something, but I don’t even know… I found out some of the characters that are in ‘Justice League’ that are casted that I didn’t know. »

After being rumored to play Aquaman for almost a full year, Warner Bros. finally confirmed last week that Jason Momoa will in fact play the King of Atlantis in Justice League and his own stand-alone adventure. The actor made an appearance at Walker Con in Atlanta over the weekend, where he gave his first public comments about the role.
When asked about the level of secrecy involved in his casting, the actor said he tried to respect Warner Bros.' wishes to keep his casting a secret, but it was very hard for him to do so.
"Listen, I was asked to play it. You know, you audition and stuff like that, but the fact is you've just got to keep it quiet. You know what I mean, I was just trying to respect Warner Bros. and everyone's wishes. I'm really, really happy that I don't have to be quiet anymore, »
Superman will appear at least three times in movies in the next five years. But will any of them be a standalone Man Of Steel adventure?
A further, potentially important casting rumour for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice landed over the weekend, which you can read about - with appropriate spoiler pre-warning - here. The bottom line remains of Zack Snyder's March 2016 movie is this: it's going to have an awful lot of DC characters in it.
Originally mooted as the follow-up to 2013's Man Of Steel, the film is said to pick up from where that movie left things, but also add a whole host of new faces. It's already well known that Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman are on board. But rumours suggest we might also get an appearance from Aquaman (as played by Jason Momoa), whilst Jesse Eisenberg joins as »
After months of speculation, DC have finally unveiled the specifics of their cinematic universe and revealed the projected release dates of their upcoming films, but what’s really excited the fanbase is the casting revelations.
Many iconic comic book characters have been recast over the years, and while there may initially be some resistance from the fan community, these choices often work out for the best. People were skeptical that Heath Ledger could better Jack Nicholson’s portrayal of the Joker, but his is now the definitive version of the character. Other actors, like Andrew Garfield, Christian Bale and Henry Cavill, have all carved their own mark on internationally renowned heroes as well.
Despite this, the comic book community rose up in outrage when Ben Affleck was cast as Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Jesse Eisenberg didn’t fare much better either once it »

Take another look @ the (low-res) "Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice" teaser trailer, screened exclusively at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con International, plus a new animatic trailer recently put together to clarify what the clear footage reveals:

This past Wednesday, Time Warner announced a spate of new movies designed to establish, expand, and cement the profitability of DC Comics’ cinematic universe. Those films — Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad in 2016, Wonder Woman and Justice League Part One in 2017, The Flash and Aquaman in 2018, Shazam and Justice League Part Two in 2019, and Cyborg and Green Lantern (a reboot of the property) in 2020 — will be punctuated with additional films starring Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman. The news has taken the internet by storm, even eclipsing some major Marvel cinematic rumors from earlier in the week.
Though the initial optimism at seeing DC finally get its film division off the ground has not yet abated, the discerning fan will find cause for concern. What could — and should — be a strong competitor to Marvel’s bulletproof cinematic universe looks like a pale imitation, »

(Tread carefully; there are Major Spoilers ahead!) This morning, a news report from Channel 10 Wilx in East Lansing, Michigan, confirmed that a female Robin will be appearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The news came from an extra who wished to remain anonymous. This matched up with earlier reports that actress Jena Malone had dyed her hair red to play Carrie Kelley, the Robin in Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns. Now The Hollywood Reporter is confirming that Jena Malone has indeed been cast in director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel follow-up. But is she playing Robin?
There is no confirmation from Warner Bros. or DC about this late addition to the cast, or which character she is actually playing. According to the Channel 10 news report, the character was added to the script late in the game during some last minute rewrites. Multiple sources confirm that Jena Malone »
You might have noticed some Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice news floating around courtesy of an extra who chose to break his signed confidentiality agreement today, but now we’ve finally got a more concrete report that doesn’t call for Warner Bros. to file lawsuit. Apparently multiple sources have confirmed that Jena Malone is indeed in the film, but there’s no word on whether or not she’s actually portraying a female version of Batman’s sidekick, Robin. Hit the jump for more on Malone’s involvement in the film. Batman v Superman is due in theaters on March 25, 2016 and also stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons. Malone was spotted on the Detroit set back in August, so there’s been speculation that she has a role in the film for a while now. »

A couple of weeks back, rumour resurfaced claiming that Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder for the role of Carrie Kelley (a.k.a. The Dark Knight Returns’ Robin) in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, stemming from the fact that the actress had died her hair red – much like the character in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.
Well, Variety is now quoting an alleged extra from the top-secret film, who has apparently told local news station Wilx-10 that “the character of Robin is now female”. This certainly adds some credence to the original report, unless the “extra” is just making it up to get themselves on the local news, of course…
