John Abraham to take on Batman and Superman on March 25

just now | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

It's apocalypse time at the Indian box office, what with John Abraham's Rocky Handsome ready to take on Zack Synder's summer Hollywood extravaganza Batman Vs Superman Dawn Of Justice which features Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman.

Director Nishikant Kamat feels the action scenes in Rocky Handsome take the action genre in Bollywood to the next level. "We had to make sure the action scenes surpassed whatever John had done in his earlier films, or for that matter whatever was attempted in the action genre before this."

Kamat feels the stunts in Rocky Handsome are unique. "They are stylized yet raw and real. If you ask me for a reference it would have to be Transporters."

Kamat conducted a 3-week action workshop with John. "He has a very pumped-up gym-designed body. We needed John to be more agile. We prepared John for the role in Bangkok. »

Superhero Showdown 2016 – Deadpool vs Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice vs Captain America: Civil War vs X-Men: Apocalypse vs Suicide Squad vs Doctor Strange

Gary Collinson on the 2016 superhero box office showdown…

We’re used to seeing three or four superhero movies each year, but 2016 sees Hollywood’s infatuation with costumed heroes making the jump to ludicrous speed with Six superhero movies set to grace the big screen (it would have been seven, had Fox been able to get its act together on Gambit). But which one will come out on top? Here’s our predictions for this year’s Superhero Showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

As always, we’ll get things underway with a quick recap of last year, which saw Marvel bringing the curtain down on Phase Two with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, and 20th Century Fox killing the Fantastic Four franchise again with the disasterous reboot from director Josh Trank.

Last Year’s Prediction – “While it should comfortably double the combined take of Ant-Man and The Fantastic Four, »

Henry Cavill Posts Shirtless 'Superman Training' Photo, Internet Faints

8 February 2016 8:24 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Move over, Zoolander, there's a new male model stealing the Internet's attention this week. Henry Cavill -- aka the "Man of Steel" and co-star of the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" -- only joined Instagram a few months ago and he just shared his first shirtless photo. In a classic humblebrag, Cavill used the shot to announce the "Warm up phase for Superman training," saying the photo would be his inspiration for a "minimum goal."

Here it is:

Warm up phase for Superman training started today! Posting this pic to set myself a minimum goal...and force myself to actually keep going haha! @gritandteeth

A photo posted by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill) on Feb 5, 2016 at 9:24am Pst

Please. That's the minimum goal? Fans may not survive if he hits the maximum, whatever that might be. Let's just say Joe Manganiello and Alexander Skarsgard may have more competition than they thought. »

Joker and Harley Quinn teased in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Super Bowl spot

8 February 2016 1:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

DC and Turkish Airlines had two Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice commercials placed in last night’s Superbowl, announcing the airline’s new routes to Metropolis and Gotham.

In the latter, amongst shots of Bruce Wayne discussing rebuilding his beloved Gotham after the events of Man of Steel, the cityscape twice shows a building called Ace Chemicals.

Ace Chemicals is known as one of The Joker’s most prominent origin stories (definitively told in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke). There, a stand-up comedian with no name is dressed up as the infamous gangster ‘Red Hood’. He falls into a vat of chemicals after a showdown with a young Batman, permanently bleaching his skin white, and birthing The Joker.

A very similar scene is shown in the most recent Suicide Squad trailer, where Dr. Harleen Quinzel (who later becomes The Joker’s lover and partner-in-crime Harley Quinn) is lifted »

‘Batman V Superman’ Super Bowl ads offer two destinations

8 February 2016 12:54 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Super Bowl ads for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice offered something a little different from the rest. Rather than just blowing us away with a high-octane commercial, Warner Bros. teamed up with the official airline partner for the upcoming superhero movie, Turkish Airlines, to bring us not one, but two infomercials offering up flights to both Gotham and Metropolis.

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.

Henry Cavill posts a 'target' picture as he begins to get himself back into shape as Superman, ahead of the Justice League shoot.

Henry Cavill has begun the 'warm up phase' of his Superman training for the Justice League movie. And it's a good thing, too. The guy just looks like he has totally let himself go during the break between filming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and the Justice League movie. Ahem.

Whether you're a fan of the direction of Man Of Steel or the DC movie universe as a whole so far, it's hard to argue with Cavill's commitment and conviction when it comes to the role of Superman. And he certainly takes his superhero training seriously. 

Here's his Instagram post, as he tries to motivate himself to stay in shape for the upcoming Justice League shoot, for director Zack Snyder...

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Partners With Turkish Airlines For New Promos

7 February 2016 3:08 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a bit of an unexpected move, Warner Bros. has teamed up with Turkish Airlines for some Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice marketing. It’s actually quite clever, too, as they’ve put together two quick promos which you can see below.

They don’t show off much from the film, but rather feature Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), respectively, as they promote both Gotham City and Metropolis.

The clips play as ads for the airline, announcing that they now fly to both of the aforementioned cities. Again, there’s not really much shown from the highly-anticipated flick itself, but fans will surely get a kick out of what’s been assembled here.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 25th and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne, among others.

Gotham and Metropolis Revealed in 'Batman v Superman' Turkish Airlines Super Bowl Ads

7 February 2016 1:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a new report surfaced that revealed what studios were planning on airing new movie footage during Super Bowl 50. That report claimed that Warner Bros. would be sitting out today's big game, which surprised some fans, especially since their highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25. However, that report did tease that, while there may not be a new trailer during the big game, there may be an ad featuring Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice characters from one of the movie's promotional partners. During today's pre-game coverage, Turkish Airlines unveiled two new ads, announcing that the airline now offers "service" to both Gotham and Metropolis.

One ad features Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne representing Gotham, who is rebuilding his city through a substantial grant from his foundation, with Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor representing Metropolis, which is being rebuilt thanks to Lex's generous donations. »

Casting Walking Dead characters in Batman – watch the first episode of Flickering Myth’s Jump Cut

7 February 2016 2:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Two actors from the hit AMC zombie drama The Walking Dead are in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – the lovely Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays super bad guy Negan. They will be Martha and Dr. Thomas Wayne respectively, Bruce Wayne’s mum and dad.

It got me thinking: how would the characters they play in The Walking Dead, and the other principle cast, best translate into the Batman mythology? And, as the second half of The Walking Dead beings this Sunday, why not devote the first episode of Flickering Myth’s new weekly YouTube show Jump Cut to the question? You can watch the video below, or, if you fancy text-based fantasy casting scenarios, the transcript is just beneath that.

First, the obvious one. Rick Grimes, the main man in Walking Dead, would be Bruce Wayne Batman. Apart from both being their respective universes’ central characters, »

As we all figured, a new Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer is on the way. The movie's official Facebook page has also added the new banner above, featuring an alternate image of Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader as he stares down the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill). Not long to go now folks - do you think the movie can live up to expectations? “Following his titanic struggle against General Zod, Metropolis has been razed to the ground and Superman is the most controversial figure in the world. While for many he is still an emblem of hope, a growing number of people consider him a threat to humanity, seeking justice for the chaos he has brought to Earth. As far as Bruce Wayne is concerned, Superman is clearly a danger to society. He fears for the future of the world with such a reckless power left ungoverned, »

'Justice League' Roles Are Small in 'Batman v Superman' Says Snyder

5 February 2016 4:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder spoke about why he prefers the DC Universe to the Marvel Cinematic Universe during an appearance on the Hall of Justice podcast. The filmmaker also had plenty more to say during his appearance, offering new details about both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, which he starts filming this spring. First, the director essentially confirmed rumors that the rest of the Justice League, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) will be featured in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, although he admitted that they have small roles.

"I really feel like this movie... I mean as far as the other Justice League characters go, it's very small roles. It's a whisper that they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her pretty well. But the movie is about Batman and Superman. »

But really, the movie is about Batman and Superman. And we really take time with them and we really drill down on the why of them and what they stand for and their beliefs and them as characters.
