Superman is finally coming to 'Supergirl'

1 hour ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Superman fans have been wondering for quite some time if the Man of Steel will be making a guest appearance on his cousin's show, "Supergirl". Turns out, he will be!  While Henry Cavill is off battling the Dark Knight in cinemas next spring, a younger version of his character will be appearing in episode 13, according to TV Line. Superman has made a few cameos on "Supergirl," he has been more of an off-screen presence, a legend, with whom the titular heroine, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), shares a familial bond.  This young version of Kal-El is currently being cast. The lucky actor will first appear in a flashback in episode 13. While the article doesn't say if he will be a recurring character, it's possible he and his adoptive family, the Kents, will appear in a few flashbacks throughout the series.  "Supergirl" currently airs on CBS Mondays at 8/9C.  »

Ben Affleck says there’s a “ton of pressure” on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just a few short months away from release, Ben Affleck has been speaking to Variety about Warner Bros.’ plans for a fully-fledged DC movie universe, admitting that there’s a “ton of pressure” on on the film to succeed.

“I think there is a ton of pressure on it,” states Affleck. “I mean I would be bullshitting you to say there isn’t. You’ll see next year [Warner Bros.] are going to have a great year. They are now developing probably the single greatest under-exploited IP asset in the entertainment business, the DC comic world. And now they have started to exploit that and you are going to see that blossom. And, when it does, it’s going to be massive… We are a very kind of instant gratification culture when it comes to analyzing the film business. And there is a lot of hyperbole involved. »

Ben Affleck: There's 'a Ton of Pressure' on 'Batman v Superman' to Do Well

8 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Every movie wants to find an audience, but big-budget movies with franchise ties and huge future plans really Need to find an audience. A massive audience. And that audience has to like the movie enough to want to come back for sequels and tie-ins. It's currently working for Marvel's "Avengers" but what about DC? "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" comes out next year, as a follow-up to the meh-ly received "Man of Steel," and it will be followed itself by "Suicide Squad," "Wonder Woman," "Aquaman," "The Flash," a two-part "Justice League" movie, and more.

Ben Affleck is the new Batman in "Batman v Superman" and he knows a lot of eyes will be on him and the movie, especially since it's meant to include more of his Caped Crusader than Henry Cavill's Man of Steel. "I think there is a ton of pressure on it," Ben Affleck admitted to Variety. »

Batman v Superman action figure set may (or may not) confirm a rumour about Lex Luthor

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

An image of an action figure set from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is doing the rounds on social media, which has led to speculation that it may confirm an old rumour about Lex Luthor.

The image in question shows Batman and Superman alongside ‘Mega-Armored Lex Luthor’, seemingly suggesting that Jesse Eisenberg’s villain will be suiting up in the movie to take on the World’s Finest.

Now, while this is certainly interesting, it should be noted that toy manufacturers often throw in a tonne of alternative -and often ridiculously over the top – costumes and accessories in order to sell more toys, so in no way does this confirm we’ll be seeing Lex in his power suit. Still, Batman and Superman need someone to punch (besides each other), right?

Batman V Superman: "there is a ton of pressure on it"

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




Ben Affleck has been chatting about the DC movie universe, and Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice...

2016 is a very big year for Warner Bros. Notwithstanding the likes of the Harry Potter spin-off series kicking off with Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, it'll be looking to put a tricky 2015 behind it with the effective launch of the DC movie universe (following 2013's Man Of Steel).

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice arrives in cinemas on March 25th 2016, bringing with it Henry Cavill reprising the role of Superman, and Ben Affleck taking on the role of Batman.

Affleck, chatting to Variety, has conceded of Zack Snyder's upcoming movie that "I think there is a ton of pressure on it. I mean I would be bullshitting you to say there isn't".

The new Batman was also chatting about the difficult year that Warner Bros has gone through, »

DC Cinematic Universe Will Be Massive Promises Ben Affleck

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Next year will be huge for fans of both Marvel and DC Comics, with each studio launching two huge movies apiece. Marvel's Captain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016) will start the studio's Phase Three initiative, while Warner Bros. kick starts their own DC Comics Extended Universe with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (March 25, 2016). At the heart of the Dceu is Ben Affleck's Batman, a character who will share the screen with Superman (Henry Cavill) for the first time ever. Variety recently caught up with Ben Affleck, who acknowledges that there is an immense amount of pressure for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to succeed.

"I think there is a ton of pressure on it. I mean I would be bulls-ting you to say there isn't. You'll see next year they are going to have a great year. They are now developing probably the single greatest under-exploited IP asset in the entertainment business, »

Superhero TV Thrives After Warner Bros. Loosens Film’s Grip on DC Entertainment

24 November 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Call it the Tsujihara Doctrine.

Soon after Kevin Tsujihara took over as Warner Bros. chairman-ceo, he made the decision to break with protocol from the previous regime — a change that would have a profound effect on the studio. At an early strategy session, senior execs recall him issuing a new edict: DC Entertainment is open for business across the lot.

Tsujihara made it clear that the vast archive of comic-book characters in the DC vault would no longer be under the tight control of Warner Bros.’ film division. WB’s television and interactive units would have new flexibility to develop projects derived from the properties, even if they were concurrently being eyed for movie projects.

He established the studio’s equivalent of the Justice League. Every two weeks, top execs including DC Entertainment’s Diane Nelson and Geoff Johns, Warner Bros. Pictures’ Sue Kroll and Greg Silverman and Warner Bros. »

Mafex action figures for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

24 November 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Tag Hobby, we’ve got a look at two Mafex series action figures from Japanese toy manufacturer Medicom for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, featuring the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight…


The figures stand approximately 6 inches tall, and will retail for $50 when they arrive in July 2016.

Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs.  And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Rumour: Abbey Lee and Alona Tal wanted for Black Canary in Justice League and Birds of Prey

23 November 2015 1:11 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Get your pinch of salt at the ready, as Latino-Review has a new rumour about the DC Extended Universe, with the site claiming that the Black Canary is set to feature in Zack Snyder’s two-part Justice League movie, with an eye to including the character in a Birds of Prey film further down the line.

According to the report, Warner Bros. is looking at Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Alona Tal (Supernatural) to don the fishnets. Should there be any truth to the report, it would mark the big screen debut of the Black Canary, although there have been several live-action incarnations of the character on the small screen, most recently in Arrow where both Caity Lotz and Katie Cassidy have assumed her identity.

8 Things Everybody Has Wrong About Batman V Superman

23 November 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros./Wc

Batman v Superman is a movie of such importance to its fans that, without yet having even been released in theatres, it still gets spoken about and argued over like a cherished classic.

In the long months leading up to the film’s release rumours and theories have emerged in their droves, as fans and detractors alike attempt to decode trailers, interviews and promotional materials in a bid to unravel the mysteries of Zack Snyder’s upcoming motion picture.

But while there’s a sense that a lot of the assumptions relating to Batman v Superman are grounded in a kind of logic, there are a few things about the movie that many people seem to have got wrong; things that they’ve misinterpreted, misconceived or have just blatantly misread. Which means, of course, that there are a lot of false factors and a high amount of »

'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' Merchandise Is Pretty Cool

23 November 2015 8:56 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I feel like I say this often but the hype-train for Batman v Superman knows no breaks. An image of two actions figures that will be released alongside the movie has found it's way online, showing us both the caped crusader and the man of steel in all their action figure glory, as they strut down what looks like a devastated street in a city. Other than that there is nothing of substance that we can take away from these action figures and their design. All we can say is they look really cool, and I'd definitely buy these and play with them a bit.

Behind Jessica Jones’s Unprecedented Sex Scenes

23 November 2015 6:22 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Our onscreen superheroes are, for the most part, neutered. Sure, there’s romantic tension and the occasional kiss, but it’ll be a cold day in hell before we see Henry Cavill and Amy Adams do a boudoir scene as Superman and Lois Lane. And, yes, we hear a lot about Tony Stark’s bedroom conquests, but no Iron Man or Avengers director would ever get away with depicting his preferred sexual positions. Not so with Marvel’s Jessica Jones. As anyone who binge-watched Netflix’s new superhero-noir series can tell you, it’s remarkably frank about sexuality: There are a half-dozen sex scenes, and they're as vivid as they are realistic. Jessica Jones’s creators and performers told us that those scenes grew out of the show’s takes on gender, power, and superhero-genre tropes — and that they were much more enjoyable to watch than to film.

Official Wonder Woman Logo From Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Revealed

22 November 2015 4:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve been seeing the unmistakable logos for both the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck) and the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) everywhere on promotional material for Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and now we can add Wonder Woman’s (Gal Gadot) official symbol to the mix.

Hot on the heels of the first image and the additional cast details from the solo Wonder Woman movie, we now have the above logo, which was spotted by

It’s actually been floating around online since it was unveiled along with several other bits of promo art last month at New York Comic-Con, but has only now been given any coverage. It’s pretty surprising that it went so long without being noticed, too, as this does mark our first glimpse of the symbol that’s been assigned to Princess Diana in the Dceu.

Lost photos show what Wonder Woman would've looked like had George Miller directed

20 November 2015 3:37 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It will only take 75 years for Wonder Woman get her debut on the silver screen. In 2016, Gal Gadot will star(?) alongside Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” But before Zack Snyder, before “Man of Steel,” and before interconnected cinematic universes…there was George Miller. Back in 2007, the “Mad Max” director was at on time on track to deliver DC’s superheroes in “Justice League Mortals” in 2009. However, production was crippled by the Writer’s Strike and the project never recovered. Miller moved on to “Fury Road” and the rest is cinematic history. Had it come to passed, “Justice League Mortals” would’ve starred Armie Hammer (Batman), D.J. Cotrona (Superman), Common (Green Lantern), Adam Brody (Flash), Santiago Cabrera (Aquaman), Hugh Keays-Byrne (Martian Manhunter), Jay Baruchel (Maxwell Lord), and Megan Gale (Wonder Woman).

Kick-Ass Scribe Mark Millar Weighs In On Man Of Steel’s Controversial Finale

20 November 2015 8:18 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two years on and still, almost inexplicably, the debate over Man of Steel‘s controversial finale rages on. Though it may filter into next year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice as part of the film’s prologue sequence, the scene continues to divide fans in a way marmite could only dream.

Now, the latest opinion to be tossed into the pot comes via Kick-Ass scribe Mark Millar, who recently spoke to GamesRadar about the traumatizing effect the third act had on him as a viewer and respected comic book writer.

More News From The Web

Weighing on the “edginess” that has become such a prominent feature of the superhero movie scene, Millar believes that Man of Steel‘s finale was ultimately too violent.

You see, I love cartoonish ultra-violence as much as the next Glaswegian (see this year’s Kingsman: the Secret Service where Colin Firth takes down »
