Click Here To View More Man Of Steel Concept Art 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 twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman. Man Of Steel was directed by Zack Snyder, from a script written by David Goyer. The cast includes: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, »
While Warner Bros. is gearing up to start production on Batman Vs. Superman next year in Michigan, the studio is also working on their long-awaited Justice League movie. A new, unconfirmed report reveals that Warner Bros. is eyeing a "United Nations" approach to casting these superheroes, with each role representing a different region of the world.
Superman (Henry Cavill) represents the Earth as a whole, since he is an "immigrant" of Earth and speaks for everyone. Batman (Ben Affleck) would represent America, with Warner Bros. seeking a Hispanic or Latino actor to play The Flash. While the announcement that Gal Gadot is playing Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman (and presumably in Justice League) took many by surprise, it does fall in line with this alleged plan, since she is of Israeli descent.
Yesterday it was confirmed that Wonder Woman is set to appear alongside the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight in 2015's eagerly-anticipated DC team-up Batman vs. Superman, with Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) securing the role of the Amazon Princess, while Variety also revealed that Callan Mulvey (Zero Dark Thirty, 300: Rise of an Empire) is being considered for the role of the villain.
Now, while most people expect to see Superman's arch-nemesis Lex Luthor as the main antagonist in Batman vs. Superman, Think McFly Think is reporting that the main bad guy will be none other than Metallo, the cyborg supervillain powered by Kryptonite. It should be noted that Think McFly Think hasn't proven to be the most reliable of sources in the past, however in the site's defense they were the first to break the news about the planned Gotham TV series so there is a chance »

Ladies and gentlemen, we have our Wonder Woman. After months of speculation, and after rumour broke out a few weeks ago about actresses auditioning for the role, Warner Bros. has officially announced that Israeli actress Gal Gadot will be playing the Amazonian superheroine in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel (tentatively titled Batman Vs. Superman).
Gadot is perhaps best known for her role as Gisele in the Fast and Furious franchise, and her name was one of those originally rumored for the part, beating out actresses Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion) and Jaimie Alexander (Thor) to play the iconic role. Wonder Woman hasn’t been seen in live action since Lynda Carter played her in the 1975 TV series, and fans have been clamoring (read: begging) for the character to get her turn in the limelight for years.
Zack Snyder, who will once again be in the director’s chair, had this to »

Wonder Woman has been ready for her feature film closeup longer than just about any other comic book character, and it's now confirmed that Fast Five actress Gal Gadot will step up to play the Amazonian superheroine opposite Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in Warner Bros's upcoming Superman vs Batman.
But while the character doesn't have the cinematic history of a Clark Kent or Bruce Wayne, many actresses before Gadot wielded Diana Prince's lasso, and in fact Gadot will technically be beaten to the "first big-screen Wonder Woman" post by a well-known Marvel Studios actress. Controversial.

Earlier this week we heard from Man of Steel star Henry Cavill as he spoke about the addition of Ben Affleck (Argo) as The Dark Knight in 2015's hotly-anticipated sequel Batman vs. Superman, while today has brought us the news that Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) has been cast in the role of Wonder Woman. However, speaking about the various DC references in this year's Superman reboot, Cavill has revealed that there's another member of the Justice League who he's keen to see lining up alongside the Man of Steel as part of the DC Cinematic Universe at some stage.
"There's one obvious one which is now particularly obvious because of our next instalment, involving Batman. We see Wayne Enterprises on the satellite in space. We also see some references to LexCop - I actually have no further knowledge of this next story [for Batman vs. Superman], but there's a good chance that Lex »

Kellan Lutz is the demi-god Hercules, the mythical Greek hero the son of Zeus. The muscle-bound actor already has Greek god under his belt, having played Poseidon in Immortals (Henry Cavill). Directed by Renny Harlin who's been Mia for awhile, the large scale production is heavy on the CGI and like 300, probably shot largely on a green screen, but it looks visually stunning.
The Legend Of Hercules has the half-god, half-man being betrayed by his stepfather King who exiles him into slavery to separate him from his true love. While in exile, he becomes a gladiator

As Batman Vs Superman starts to feel more and more like a Justice League movie, one or two more rumours have sprung up...
Yesterday, it was confirmed that Gal Gadot was being cast as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman Vs Superman movie. Once upon a time, this was the project billed as the sequel to Man Of Steel. With the addition of Ben Affleck's Batman as well to the movie, Henry Cavill's Superman sounds like he's going to have quite a job to get a look in.
For it seems more and more as if the movie is becoming a Justice League film, or if not, a very obvious precursor to one. Obviously we've not read the script or anything, so it's just guesswork. But there are reportedly more DC characters set to appear yet. For instance, Variety is »

Batman Vs. Superman or Justice League? With the news that Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot has been cast in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel follow-up – not to mention reports that The Flash is also confirmed to make an appearance – you would be forgiven for thinking that the movie is in fact more about DC’s version of The Avengers than just a simple team-up between their two biggest characters…
Either way, fans are ecstatic at the news that they will not only see Henry Cavill’s Superman fighting alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman, but also perhaps even the rest of the Justice League. If the team does come together in this movie, the door will be kicked wide open for a feature with them all working together, but right now the biggest news is undoubtedly the fact that Wonder Woman is finally going to get the big screen treatment she deserves. »

This is a breaking news bulletin. We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you the following news. What seems too good to be true is finally happening, ladies and gentlemen. The Flash has been confirmed to appear alongside Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman film, the sequel to this years reboot of the Superman franchise Man Of Steel. To reiterate however, we do not know to what capacity we will see both characters in the film, which is to say they may introduce them as these superpowered individuals, or have brief cameos readying for future instalments.
In the short span since the announcement, many have wondered just who will be playing The Flash and if Glee actor Grant Gustin will be expanding his role from The Flash in the popularised Arrow (featuring Green Arrow, another DC/Justice League member) onto the silver screen. »
