There has been a lot of talk recently about the lack of women superheroes in comic book movies. While Marvel is looking to rectify that with their female-led Captain Marvel, Warner Bros. and DC will actually beat them to the punch with a standalone Wonder Woman movie. But first, the character will be introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And it sounds like this Man of Steel sequel is paving the way for a more girl-friendly genre environment. Star Amy Adams, who reprises her role as Lois Lane, recently spoke with MTV, and revealed how nice it was to have another woman on set in Gal Gadot.
The actress also revealed that this feels more like a Superman sequel to her than a set up for Justice League Part 1. Though, she did have fun interacting with some of the other characters that will eventually make up that superhero ensemble. »

If you're a fan of superhero films (or comics for that matter), you're probably familiar with the basic details of the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. It's entitled Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2015) and appears to be every bit a prequel to an eventual Justice League film. Here are the basics: Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer will direct and write, respectively; Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), and Jason Momoa (Arthur Curry/Aquaman) will comprise the bulk of the cast from a superhero perspective; Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred) and Amy Adams (Lois Lane) will also be a part of the project, and you can find the full cast and crew listings at IMDb.

Over the past year or so, news and updates about Zack Snyder.s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have set up the 2016 blockbuster as a gateway to a larger DC Cinematic Universe, but there is another big responsibility that it carries. With the return of Henry Cavill.s Superman, Amy Adams. Lois Lane, Lawrence Fishburne.s Perry White and Diane Lane.s Martha Kent, the film is very much expected to be a sequel to Man of Steel that further develops the Kryptonian superhero. But what exactly does and should that mean? Certainly one of the biggest controversies surrounding Man of Steel was both the fact that Superman wound up killing General Zod and, in the run-up, decimated a huge chunk of Metropolis. Furthermore, after he puts on the blue tights and cape in the movie, we never actually get to see him really be heroic; instead, he is »
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:
"...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 used to maintain peace or »

Since it was announced last year, we’ve heard a lot of talk about one half of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not so much on the other. Over the weekend our comments section blew up as people gave their thoughts on the colour of Batman’s new outfit, but there wasn’t so much talk about Superman when his costume was revealed.
Warning – potential spoilers…
So, just what will become of the Last Son of Krypton in this team-up movie? Well, according to Bad Ass Digest, the destruction caused by the fight between Superman and Zod in Man of Steel will play a major role in the plot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to their sources who have read the script, Superman has become a very controversial figure, having intervened in America’s fight in the Middle East and has even been banned from Chinese airspace. »

Production on Warner Bros. highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wrapped just a few weeks ago, with director Zack Snyder now starting the lengthy post-production process on this superhero adventure.

The story opens with Batman's (Ben Affleck) origins then fast forwards to Bruce Wayne coming to Metropolis during the Superman/Zod fight in Man of Steel.

According to a new report from Batman News, some new spoiler intel for the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action flick was revealed by Lois Lane star, Amy Adams (left). She confirmed that there will be no love triangle between Lois,Wonder Woman and Superman, and more. Also in the clip (below), Amy told Collider that Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are “awesome together” as Batman and Superman. “It’s kind of like this big fest of muscles … it was really kind of nice. And then you add Jason Momoa and Gal Gadot and I felt very short.” As for the love triangle details, she said that's not in the cards while speaking with ComingSoon.net, stating: "They always think that if you put in another woman and automatically… ‘Catfight!’ No, I think that’s a male fantasy thing. I don’t think that’s reality. »

Amy Adams says that despite the presence of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman character in Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," don't expect some fanboy love triangle in the film between Clark Kent (Henry Cavill), Adams' own character Lois Lane and the Amazonian heroine. Adams tells Coming Soon:
"It's exciting to get to bring in all these other characters, and I was really excited that Gal was involved, because it was a nice to have another girl on set. Even if we don't work together a lot, it was nice to have her there... They always think that if you put in another woman and automatically... 'Catfight!' No, I think that's a male fantasy thing. I don't think that's reality. I don't know how it will turn out, if we're going to be competition, but we are not in this, I can safely say, and we're not in real life. »

When Gal Gadot was first announced to play Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, many fans wondered if this superhero adventure may introduce a "love triangle" of sorts, between Wonder Woman, Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Superman (Henry Cavill). While that aspect to the story may be introduced in later films, such as Wonder Woman, Justice League Part 1 or Justice League Part 2, Amy Adams revealed in a recent interview that Lois and Wonder Woman won't be "competing" or fighting for the affections of the Man of Steel. Here's what she had to say below.
"It's exciting to get to bring in all these other characters, and I was really excited that Gal was involved, because it was a nice to have another girl on set. Even if we don't work together a lot, it was nice to have her there... They always think that if you put in another woman and automatically. »
Back when Zack Snyder was casting for Superman in Man of Steel, Mad Men actor Jon Hamm (43) was rumored to be a strong contendor. Of course, the role ultimately went to Henry Cavill. But Hamm isn't losing any sleep over not landing the gig. At the height of the Mad Men actor's popularity, Hamm stated that he was offered his fair share of superhero roles but he's turned all of them down. Recently, Hamm told Radio Times, "The deals that they make you do [for superhero roles] are so draconian. And, of course, you are signed on for not only the movie that you are signed on for… but at least two more that you haven’t read and you have no idea what they are going to be and all the crossover ones you are going to have to do. For me to sign on now to do a superhero »
When Marvel’s The Avengers went on to become the third highest grossing film of all time, Warner Bros. had the expected response of proclaiming their determination to get a Justice League film into production as soon as possible. To many this seemed a foolish and imitative attempt to rake in Avengers-like money without putting in the kind of groundwork that Marvel did in establishing its cinematic universe. Many argued that what WB should do, instead, was a film featuring the one thing that Marvel did not have: a team-up of their two most iconic characters, Superman and Batman. In the end, of course, that’s exactly what’s happening with the sequel to Man of Steel bringing together Henry Cavill’s Superman with Ben Affleck’s Batman. And while a direct sequel to the first film would have been preferable, there’s a genuine sense of excitement about seeing »
"It's exciting to get to bring in all these other characters and I was really excited that Gal was involved, because it was nice to have another girl on set - even if we don't work together a lot, it was nice to have her there," she told Coming Soon.
"They always think that if you put in another woman and automatically... 'Catfight!' No, I think that's a male fantasy thing. I don't think that's reality.
"I don't know how it will turn out, if we're going to be competition, but we are not in this [film], I can safely say, and we're not in real life. She's just the coolest girl ever. »
Amy Adams has been hitting the press junket for her upcoming movie Big Eyes and, unsurprisingly, has been faced with questions about Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which recently seems to have wrapped principal photography. When Zack Snyder’s follow-up to Man Of Steel was first announced, fans of Adams’ character Lois Lane voiced concern that the iconic, intrepid journalist might be side-lined in a movie filled with huge superheroes – including Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).
Whereas in the 2013 film, Lane was integral to the plot, fears of marginalization for the next cinematic outing became very real. Amy Adams herself has dispelled that fear now, however, by confirming to Collider that DC’s big movie for 2016 will see Lois Lane once again being the catalyst for the action.
“Lois is still sort of like the key to the information, »

Lois Lane is a key character, but Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also has Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). How can she possibly make a mark with so many big name superheroes in play? While talking to Amy Adams for her upcoming release, Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, she explained that even though the boys are doing the “heavy lifting” in Batman v Superman, Lois is still very much in the mix because she’s the one acquiring information and putting the pieces together. Hit the jump for more. Here’s what Adams had to say when asked how Lois Lane will stand out amongst all of the other characters in the film: “Lois is still sort of like the key to the information, you know? She’s the girl going out and getting it and figuring »

Principal photography on Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, recently wrapped principal photography, however, it seems there's still a bit of footage that needs to be shot according to this new casting call. Reportedly, the search is on for a young 12-year-old boy to portray a young Ben Affleck/Bruce Wayne in Dawn of Justice and the young actorl apparently needs extensive martial arts training. Based on this info, it's likely that Bruce Wayne started his training to become Batman immediately after the death of his parents. This would be yet another similarity the film apparently has with Batman: Earth One (it seems Jeremy Irons' Alfred Pennyworth is also based on Batman: Earth One). This would also be another difference between Snyder's version of The Dark Knight and the version created by Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale, whose Bruce Wayne »
