Over at SuperHeroHype they’ve had the opportunity to get some snaps of a very cool stand on display at the San Diego Comic-Con. The cape and cowl of the new Batsuit from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! Take a look…
It all looks pretty standard to be honest, with the biggest difference to previous suits being the shorter ears. It is very intriguing that they’ve gone back to a one piece design, as opposed to the overtly flexible neck and head pieces of the last Batsuit seen in the The Dark Knight Trilogy. It doesn’t appear to have much give, but maybe technology has come on since and we’ll have a Batman that has both the iconic silhouette and the ability to back out of the drive a little easier.

While Comic-Con doesn't officially start until tomorrow morning, tonight is Preview Night, giving fans an early sneak peek at the convention floor, along with a number of TV pilots that are being screened.

Take a look at the photo below, courtesy of Twitter user Dan Didio, then read on for an unusual image sent out by director Zack Snyder.

Director Zack Snyder doesn't use his verified Twitter account as much as many other directors, but every now and then he'll give the fans something interesting. Less than an hour ago, the filmmaker sent out the following photo of Henry Cavill wielding a Star Wars light saber, with the hashtag #SuperJedi. »
Comic-Con is in full swing now, and to celebrate, director Zack Snyder has tweeted out a very strange photo that shows his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice leading man Henry Cavill not only wearing his Superman costume, but also a black cloak and wielding a red lightsaber, surely a sign that he has turned to the dark side and joined the Sith, even though Zack refers to Kal-El as a Super Jedi.
Take a look:

We're not sure what this photo is teasing or if the filmmaker is just having some fun with Photoshop during his downtime from the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice production.
#SuperJedi pic.twitter.com/PyNbELK8UZ — ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) July 24, 2014 So, I guess this means that Henry Cavill has joined the cast of a Zack Snyder helmed Star Wars spin-off, right? Wrong. Well, maybe! The director is probably just having some fun here and the cloak that Henry Cavill is wearing is one of those that actors often don on set to avoid being snapped by the paparazzi. It does look a lot like a Jedi's cloak and I guess Snyder had a lightsaber hanging around somewhere...either way, we can see the Superman costume peeking through and the last time that the filmmaker sent out a photo of something covered up, we got our first look at Batman! Could this humourous tease perhaps lead to a bigger reveal? We'll have to wait and see... Update: We didn't think the Warner Bros. would be bringing anything from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice to Comic-Con, »

The Luther actor will play Bedivere, a confidant of Arthur's father who mentors the younger knight as he prepares for battle.

Dwayne Johnson has dropped a huge hint about his involvement in the DC movie universe.
The Hercules star, who has long been linked to a role in a Warner Bros superhero blockbuster, has strongly suggested that he'll play Shazam.
Johnson told Total Film that his undisclosed role will be announced shortly.
"He has the power of Superman," Johnson said. "And it's not the Green Lantern by the way. Believe me - Jon Stewart - he is a character who I wanted to play, but there was already a version of Green Lantern, and so now we've gone in a slightly different direction. But this character has the power of Superman. He can throw down."
Johnson's final clue alluded to "Shazam", the magic word Billy Batson exclaims to get transformed into the costumed hero. "Just say the word," The Rock teased. "That's all I'm going to say."

While promoting "Hercules," director Brett Ratner spoke about how he would create comic books as a child and would often pit Hercules against Superman. So when Dwayne Johnson was asked about who would in a fight, he had a clear answer. "Who would win in a fight between Hercules and Superman? I would take my club and I would knock Superman into next week, and then I would whup his ass for leaving! That's what I would do," he said. Johnson is currently rumored for a role in a future DC movie. And we know that he's close friends with Superman actor Henry Cavill. So does the actor really believe that Hercules would stand a chance against Superman, or is this an inside joke, since many fans believe Johnson will play Darkseid in "Justice League." »
The Greek god has been a presence in mythology and pop culture for centuries, and in many ways is the father of the modern-day superhero. As a child, Hercules director Brett Ratner used to ponder the outcome of a battle royale between the son of Zeus and son of Jor-El - he could never pick a winner.
When Digital Spy sat down to speak to Johnson about his latest action epic, there was one thing we had to know. How would his Hercules fare against Henry Cavill's Superman? Watch the video above to see The Rock's answer and also his musings on Hercules as the prototype superhero.
As a side note, we may soon get to see this play out in some form, because Johnson has »
Recently, Comicbookmovie acquired some new, exclusive set photos for the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action flick. The new photos feature more major,chaotic debris action over in Corktown, Detroit. A lot of the focus was on the large cross-shaped structures which we have been clearly identified as broken steel beams. There's also large pieces of styrofoam, along with wood structures ,and more. You guys can view the new set pics at Comicbookmovie.com by Clicking Here. Their source delivered new entail as to what this debris is all about, stating: "Similarly the large pieces of styrofoam are in the process of being painted gray to look like large pieces of concrete, torn up pavement, and other disaster-debris. The wood structures that look kind of like construction-roofing seem to be the framework for the concrete slabs, so the scene will look like there’s been pretty major upheaval. »
Geoff Johns, who wrote the The Flash pilot for The CW, as well as produces the series, is also an executive producer on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Speaking at the TCA panel for the upcoming DC Comics series, he clarified the differences between the DC Cinematic Universe and its small screen companion, confirming that the two streams will never cross. This also means that we'll never even see small screen versions of Batman or Superman on either The CW series Arrow or The Flash.
The comic book writer explained that there has never been a plan to incorporate the two different universes into one entity, and that the small screen actors who portray Arrow and The Flash, Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin, won't be squeezing their way into Justice League either.
""You'll see a lot of DC universe characters [on The The Flash and Arrow]. You won't see Batman or Superman. We're on production on Batman v Superman now. »
Any fans still holding out hope that DC and Warner Bros. could combine its Cinematic Universe with the likes of Arrow and The Flash will be disappointed to hear that DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has categorically ruled out a shared movie and TV universe:
“You’ll see a lot of DC universe characters [on The Flash and Arrow]. You won’t see Batman or Superman. We’re on production on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice now. So you’ll see characters like The Atom or Firestorm, but no not Batman or Superman right now [on TV]. “It’s a separate universe than film so that the filmmakers can tell the story that’s best for film, while we explore something different in a different corner of the DC universe. We will not be integrating the film and television universes.”
So, that’s seems pretty final, and I guess we can now put an end »

With filming on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice heading to Corktown, Detroit in a couple of weeks, the website TheBananaDoc has posted a few images from the set, showing construction of a devastated section of Gotham or Metropolis. There’s nothing too exciting, but hopefully we’ll get to see the cast out in the open once filming on the set gets underway…
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on May 6th 2016, with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons (The Borgias) as Alfred Pennyworth and Holly Hunter »

As Arrow continues to get more and more popular, and The Flash gets his own series, fans have been desperate to know whether the movie and television DC universes are one and the same. There have been hints that they both are and are not in the recent past, though Geoff Johns made it clear once and for all today that they are very much their own thing. "You'll see a lot of DC universe characters [on The Flash and Arrow]. You won't see Batman or Superman. We're on production on Batman V Superman now. So you'll see characters like The Atom or Firestorm, but no not Batman or Superman right now [on TV]." That makes sense, but Smallville aired when Superman Return was released, so why not? Well, Johns is referring to the Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck versions of these characters, and went on to definitively state that we won't »

Last week Warner Bros. announced its line-up for the San Diego Comic-Con International, with the eagerly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice absent from a schedule that includes the likes of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, Jupiter Ascending, Into the Storm and Godzilla. Of course, there’s every chance that WB could be keeping its big superhero offering as a surprise, but now stills photographer Clay Enos has indicated that we might have to wait until 2015 before we get to see something from the DC ensemble.
A few days back, Enos teased a “historic” photoshoot on Twitter, with speculation suggesting that WB could be preparing a promotional photo of the Trinity – Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) – to debut at Sdcc. However, Enos has now stated that we should expect WB to hold things back until next year’s Comic-Con:

Further to the sequel "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" reportedly 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 @ 'destruction' footage, highlighting the SFX carnage from that first film:
"...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?
"Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents 'Martha' and 'Jonathan Kent', Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions.
"But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be »

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.
I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »

With Zack Snyder currently rebooting The Dark Knight as part of Warner Bros.’ big DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Yahoo! Movies caught up with Gary Oldman during a promotional interview for his new film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, during which they managed to get a few comments from The Dark Knight Trilogy star about his thoughts on the latest incarnation of Batman, and it appears he’s quite skeptical of it:
“They want to keep it going. Of course they do. But, it’s Superman yeah? Batman and Superman together? We shall see. The thing about Christopher Nolan, there was some grounding of reality to it. In our trilogy, and as fantastical and as big as The Joker was, it was based [on reality]. We could relate to it. But now we’ve got Batman and we’ve got a guy who can fly who’s an alien? »
