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.

It takes a brave woman to boss Jared Leto and Tom Hardy around, and Warner Bros appear to have found just that as Viola Davis joins the cast of Suicide Squad. According to reports she will play Amanda Waller, aka “The Wall”, the formidable government mastermind who assembles the squad, known as “Task Force X”. The star of How To Get Away With Murder faces up not only to Leto’s Joker and Hardy’s Rick Flagg, but also Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Will Smith’s Deadshot, Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress and Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang.
Rumours about who would take the role have included Oprah Winfrey (a bizarre choice in some ways but perhaps an inspired one) and Davis’ The Help co-star Octavia Spencer. Waller was created by John Ostrander, Len Wein and John Byrne. She first appeared in the DC Universe in 1986. For one storyline she »

Critics and the general populace live very different lives. Critics live in the bubble—a wonderful place where you see movies early and for free. Other moviegoers must carve out time in a busy schedule, track down films, and then pay high ticket prices. We're incredibly sympathetic to these moviegoers, and so we don't expect you to see every movie. It's easy to miss a lot of them, especially when you want to get a lot of bang for your buck. However, there were plenty of movies this year that deserved your attention, and we urge you to track down these ten films you might have missed due to their limited theatrical release.

Yesterday we heard some plot details for Paul Feig’s upcoming all-female Ghostbusters remake, and now the latest round of Sony leaks has given us some insight into Ivan Reitman’s original plans for Ghostbusters III, which stem from an email last year from the director, which was sent to Sony co-chariman Amy Pascal and concerned the second draft of the script.
Titled Ghostbusters: Alive Again, the film would have focussed on Ray (Dan Aykroyd), Egon (Harold Ramis) and Winston (Ernie Hudson) passing the torch to a younger team of Ghostbusters which included ‘Chris’, the son of Bill Murray’s Peter Venkman (who is assumed to be Oscar, Venkman’s son with Sigourney Weaver’s Dana Barrett).
For the role of Chris, Reitman said that he had met with Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) but stated that he was “unsure” about the casting. »

Before Paul Feig came around to reboot the Ghostbusters franchise for a new generation and launch a whole new franchise, there was a direct sequel to the original films that was in development for years. That project will never happen at this point, but some details have surfaced on what that sequel would have entailed.
Screenwriter Etan Cohen (Men In Black 3) completed a second Ghostbusters 3 draft. The film's producer, Ivan Reitman, who was attached to direct the film at the time, sent an email to Sony Pictures Chairman Amy Pascal that contained the second draft, and it reveals the title of the movie and his plan for the cast.
There's not much revealed about the plot, but it would have centered on Ray Stanz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis), and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) passing the franchise off to a younger generation of Ghostbusters. Sadly, a month after this email was sent, »

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. »

Rome – “Boyhood” protag Ellar Coltrane will be feted by Italy’s Capri-Hollywood film festival dedicated to launching Oscar hopefuls and establishing a creative and business bridgehead between Hollywood and the Italian film and showbiz communities.
The young actor from Texas, chosen by director Richard Linklater after an extensive casting process to play Mason Evans Jr. from age six through 18, will receive the Capri Family Award during the informal event on the Italo isle off the coast of Naples. Capri is gaining increasing prominence as a platform for Academy Awards campaigns.
“Capri, Hollywood is more and more focusing its attention on giving recognition to young movie stars,” said Pascal Vicedomini, the Italo journo who heads the fest and also runs its sister event Ischia Global, and the L.A. Italia Italo cinema showcase.

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. There will be Spoilers that follow, so, as always, read on at your own risk. While we wait for the first trailer to surface, Badass Digest has new plot details that tease a major fight between Superman (Henry Cavill) and the villainous Doomsday, along with plot points that may have been put in place to alleviate some fans' concerns from last year's Man of Steel.
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. The script by Chris Terrio, which was turned in just before production started, then turns its attention primarily to Superman. He is now living with Lois Lane and »
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. »

We’ve seen a couple of shots of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not in colour… until now. ComicBook has discovered a colourised version of the first official photo of Affleck’s Dark Knight, which is taken directly from Zack Snyder’s Cruel & Unusual Films production company website…
So, pretty much as expected, but now that we know exactly what colour scheme they’ve gone with, how do you think it stacks up against the previous all-black versions we’ve seen on the big screen?
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 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), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, »

Just days ago, it was revealed that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will have a very different kind of Alfred Pennyworth. One that we haven't really seen on screen before. Jeremy Irons, who is taking over the role last played by Michael Caine in The Dark Knight trilogy, has now offered even more insight into that idea. He calls this Alfred one that any woman would want, and like a Swiss Army Knife, he can basically do anything. A talent that surely comes in handy when Batman is in a pinch. The actor states:
"Oh he'll be quite different. He has an interesting history. He's a very competent man. He's the sort of man I think anyone would like to be married to. He can sort of do everything: change light bulbs, blow up bridges if he has to."
In his interview with Indiewire, Jeremy Irons doesn't go onto »
Though Batman is an iconic comic book superhero, he is often defined by those who have played him on the big and small screen. While other actors picked up the cowl early on, the first real person to be identified with Bruce Wayne was Adam West in the campy 1960s TV show. His take was a little goofy, and full of humor. It wasn't until Michael Keaton took over the role in 1989's Tim Burton classic that audiences started to take this dark vigilante seriously, and the role helped redefine both the superhero genre and Keaton as an actor. While a few others have put on the suit since then, Michael Keaton himself still has strong feelings about his role in the evolution of the Dark Knight. But he is not intimidated by any newcomers who arrive, ready to offer their own take on Batman.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has recently wrapped shooting but is not due for release for another fifteen months yet. The film is set to introduce us to lots of new characters and reimagining of characters we have seen on screen before. One of those is Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth, played by Jeremy Irons, and so far not much has been said or revealed about the character in this version. Until now.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Irons revealed a bit of information about his role of Alfred, stating that it’s “not a large role” and adding that: “He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted. I would just say he’s more hands-on perhaps than just a butler.”
So although it is a small role it sounds like it »
