Of course, these files might just be kept in Amanda Waller's office, but it's a cool nod nonetheless.

New York director Noah Baumbach, the child of writers, writes consistently smart screenplays about that urban intellectual milieu, from his debut "Kicking and Screaming" to his Oscar-nominated "The Squid and the Whale," arguably his most fully realized film to date, which broke out Jesse Eisenberg, followed by less well-received "Margot at the Wedding," which was a dark, dead-on accurate portrait of a family of narcissists. Baumbach is willing to show characters who are lost and flailing. Ben Stiller has portrayed his alter-ego twice now, in L.A.-set "Greenberg," co-starring Greta Gerwig, which made me squirm with discomfort, and now "While We're Young," which debuted at Toronto 2014. Stiller plays Josh, a blocked and earnest documentary filmmaker stuck in a dead-end career and a tired childless marriage to Cornelia (Naomi Watts). The duo meet and become briefly infatuated by another couple (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried) who »

Over the last year, we.ve seen a number of heroes from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice revealed, including the titular characters as well as Wonder Woman and Aquaman . but being kept cloaked in secret was the movie.s main villain. Jesse Eisenberg signed on to play Lex Luthor in the blockbuster back in January 2014, and yet we couldn.t even get confirmation that the new version would be bald. That changed this week, with the first official image of the character released. Here's your exclusive first look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in @BatmanvSuperman! http://t.co/wG87toA3li pic.twitter.com/BjvWQZvSdm. Entertainment Weekly (@EW) March 25, 2015 Of course, there.s only so much you can say about a black and white image of an actor with a bald head, but it does spur own a certain conversation: what exactly are we expecting from this version »
Yesterday marked exactly one year to the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Warner Bros. celebrating by giving us our first look at a bald Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and now EW (via Cbm) has released an official version of the Jason Momoa Aquaman image, minus the ‘Unite the Seven’ tagline…
On a side note, we’ve heard a whisper today that the first trailer for Batman v Superman will be with us on April 4th. This is unconfirmed, and there may be nothing to it so please don’t take it as gospel. Our money is on the first trailer coming with Mad Max: Fury Road. But you never know…
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on March 25th 2016 and sees Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane »

Champaign, Illinois isn’t quite Cannes or Park City, Utah, but the film festival hosted there annually in Roger Ebert’s name is as charming as they come. Now Ebertfest, in its 17th year, has announced its lineup of films prior to its four day run in April.
It was previously announced that Jean-Luc Godard’s acclaimed Goodbye to Language 3D would be the opening night film. Now Chaz Ebert has penned a touching love letter to her late husband detailing the choices they’ve made for the festival in his absence.
Among them are James Ponsoldt’s The End of the Tour, Ramin Bahrani’s 99 Homes, Roy Andersson’s A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting On Existence, Céline Sciamma’s Girlhood, and special screenings of A Bronx Tale with Robert De Niro and the 1926 silent film The Son of the Sheik »

Superman may be the archetypal superhero from whose rib all later comic book heroes were created, but Lex Luthor is far from your typical supervillain. The Man Of Steel’s arch nemesis is a smart, conniving, megalomaniacal and intensely driven sort that isn’t a world away from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg; or at least the Mark Zuckerberg from the recent movie The Social Network. And if his world domination plan involved social media instead of robots.
Which makes Jesse Eisenberg’s casting as the villain in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice a stroke of genius. Eisenberg has the requisite chops to not only make Luthor the true threat he is – despite lacking any powers of his own, and coming up against the indestructible Last Son Of Krypton – whilst also conveying what a complex character Lex is.
Plus, as the picture released by Snyder this week proves, »

Yesterday kickstarted the 365 day countdown to when Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice will careen into multiplexes the world over. March 25, 2016 is a long way off, and expectation surrounding Zack Snyder’s superhero team-up movie continues to mount on a daily basis. Rumors, speculation, set images have all cluttered the web and sparked much early excitement for a film that’s yet to even grant us a trailer. The absence of which makes every tiny morsel all the more newsworthy. So, with that in mind, we can now bring you a cleaner look at Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
This is, in fact, the very same image Snyder debuted earlier in the year – but minus the “Unite The Seven” text plastered on top. This textless version appeared as part of EW‘s “What we know so far” coverage of the movie, which also includes portraits of Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, »

Yesterday marked the one year wait for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, we are one day closer to seeing this epic DC Comics movie play out on the big screen, and 5 character portraits richer for our troubles. Thus far, director Zack Snyder has been kind enough to offer a look at his superheroes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. And then yesterday, he finally unveiled the very bald Lex Luthor. We've collected them all for you to see here!
Can you believe it's been almost two years since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was first announced at Comic-Con 2013? It wasn't until several months later, on March 13, 2014, that we got our first look at Ben Affleck in his new Batman costume standing next to the Batmobile, which sent fans into a frenzy. Four months went by before we got our first look at Henry Cavill in his new Superman costume, »
There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).
In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we finally have an official (after plenty of fan-made efforts) version of Aquaman's character portrait minus the "Unite The Seven" tag. It obviously doesn't reveal too much more than what we've already seen, but seeing as yesterday marked exactly a year until the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and all we got was a picture of a bald Jesse Eisenberg, this will do for now! As well as Jason Momoa, the 2016 movie stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot. What do you guys think of this latest look at Aquaman? Sound off below! »
With David Ayer's "Suicide Squad" to be the first DC cinematic universe film to be released in the wake of Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," there's obviously been questions about how 'Squad' will tie in both with 'Dawn' and the subsequent "Justice League" films.
There's been numerous rumors, from Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) cameos to easter eggs tying back to Batman and Amanda Waller's intent to use him to flush out other superheroes. A new rumor today from Latino Review suggests how one character from 'Dawn' ties into the film as well - Aquaman (Jason Momoa).
The site claims that Waller (Viola Davis) has a personal trophy case in the lower levels of the prison where all the super powered meta humans are kept. The case includes several key artifacts, one of which is Aquaman's trident as »

Sneak Peek the first official look @ actor Jesse Eisenberg, playing young 'Lex Luthor', plus a behind-the-scenes look at the actor, with and without his hairpiece, on the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":
...described as "...a power-mad, evil scientist" of high intelligence and incredible technological prowess.
Luthor's ultimate goal of killing 'Superman' was to be a stepping stone to his evil domination of the universe.
In subsequent comic books, Luthor became hairless as the result of an artist's mistake. A 1960 story by Jerry Siegel expanded upon Luthor's origin and motivations, revealing him to be a childhood friend of Superman's who lost his hair when a fire destroyed his laboratory. »

Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice may still be a full year from release, but that hasn’t stopped fans chomping at the bit to uncover more about Warner Bros’ titanic showdown. Yesterday, we had the first reveal of Jesse Eisenberg as evil supervillain Lex Luthor, but today Badass Digest brings word of some fresh speculation relating to the film’s plot which, you should be warned, delves into spoiler territory unabated.
Still with us? Great. According to Badass Digest’s report, Dawn of Justice will still use The Dark Knight Returns as a major touchstone, though it’s understood there will be a number of significant differences between Frank Miller’s seminal comic and Snyder’s feature film. For one, it is Clark Kent who instigates the encounter between the titular pairing at the command of Lex Luthor. How and why exactly this plays out remains to be seen, »

Though Suicide Squad is not necessarily tied directly into Justice League, we know that it is part of DC and Warner Bros.' expansive cinematic universe. So, many believe that this third film in their planned series will somehow connect to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While it has been widely rumored that both Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor will make appearances at some point, Latino Review is back with yet another rumor that claims the movie will also tease a connection to Aquaman. It seems that Amanda Waller, who brings this group of super villains together for an impossible mission, has had her own run in with the legendary Atlantis superhero.
In a recent interview, Viola Davis called her Amanda Waller a brutal badass. That may be true if this latest tidbit proves to be accurate. According to El Mayimbe, Waller is »

Comic book fans have been wondering how curly-haired actor Jesse Eisenberg will look as Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Now, we have our first glimpse of how Eisenberg will embody the character.
Entertainment Weekly shared a photo of Eisenberg as Luthor, and the stark, black and white image certainly bodes well for the actor's portrayal of the notorious villain. The now-bald Eisenberg looks every bit the part, and it's not just the chrome dome -- he stares down the camera with such a menacing intensity that it's hard to hold his gaze for very long.
Some of director Zack Snyder's casting choices for the flick have raised eyebrows (remember the uproar over Batfleck?), but we think Eisenberg looks spot-on as Luthor. As Synder explained to EW, this interpretation of the character is "not any of the Lexes that you've seen, »

It was a bit surprising when Warner Bros announced that Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) has been cast as Lex Luthor in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Considering that Eisenberg is a young actor, many fans wanted to know if Luthor would be bald. And today, we have the first photo of Eisenberg from the movie, answering that question. Check it out below. "He's not any of the Lexes that you've seen, that's for sure," said director Zack Snyder. "Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course. Our Lex is disarming and he's not fake. He says what he believes and he says what's on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it's all there." "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" co-stars Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman. »
