With production underway on Batman vs. Superman, we should expect to hear plenty about Warner Bros. Man of Steel sequel over the coming weeks and months (which will no doubt be music to DC fans’ ears), and to start things off director Zack Snyder has taken part in a lengthy interview with Forbes, during which he spoke in depth about the hotly-anticipated film…
On the decision to include Batman (Ben Affleck) alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman in the Man of Steel seuqel: “It definitely was a thing that… after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, ‘Maybe Batman?’ Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne’s house or something. Like in a cryptic way, »

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder is getting ready to start production on what may be the biggest film of his career, Batman Vs. Superman, which brings together these comic book icons on the big screen for the first time. During a new interview with Forbes, the filmmaker revealed when and why they first started discussing bringing these two superheroes together, and what it was like seeing the holy trinity of Batman, Superman and Wonderman together on set as the stand-ins first climbed into their costumes.
"After Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, "Maybe Batman?" Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne's house or something. Like in a cryptic way, that's the first time we see him. »
Even though Zack Snyder currently can't really say anything incredibly substantial about Batman vs. Superman (unofficial title), he can talk around it, and that's close enough for most fanboys. In a recent interview with Forbes, Snyder gave his thoughts on both characters and seeing them together on screen. Personally, the most disconcerting part of the interview is when the interviewer says, "Superman is kind of the ideal of what we’d like to be, and Batman is kind of rooted in what we are. He reflects what we are, so to speak," and Snyder replies, "Oh, 100%. And I think that’s at the heart of that, you know." I could not disagree more with that response. I think an "idealist versus pragmatist" approach is understandable, but please don't lump me in with a billionaire who treats a crime-ridden city like a playground so he can constantly work though his childhood trauma. »

With Warner Bros.’ kicking off production on Batman vs. Superman in Detroit, cinematographer Larry Fong has tweeted what may just be the first behind-the-scenes image from the Man of Steel sequel. No, it’s not Batman or Wonder Woman in full costume, but rather a Panavision camera pointed towards a blurry figure in a suit. Bruce Wayne, perhaps?
So, nothing too exciting, but surely it’s only a matter of time before things start to pick up…
Batman vs. Superman is directed by Zack Snyder and sees returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) joined by Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons (The Borgias) as Alfred Pennyworth and Holly Hunter (The Piano), Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an »

Zimmer told Digital Spy that he will begin working on Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” follow-up once he completes the score for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” (Nolan evidently kept the sci-fi film’s plot a secret from his longtime composer).
“We’ve already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about, I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas,” said Zimmer, who most recently scored Oscar winner “12 Years a Slave” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Zimmer is no stranger to the Batman universe, having penned the music to Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy. However, he »

In just under a month, Richard Ayoade's "The Double" will take you into a retro-future-punk world where there are two Jesse Eisenberg's and yet no one manages to confuse the two. In fact, one is smooth and confident, while the other is meek and anonymous, and the actor gets great mileage out of both parts in the film that hilarious and wonderfully put together. And now you can find out how it was all done. Ayoade recently stopped by New Directors/New Films festival in New York City, and spent thirty minutes following the screening of the film talking about the ins and outs of his work. The self-effacing filmmaker discussed working with Avi Korine on the screenplay, adapting the novella by Fyodor Dostoevsky, transitioning from his main gig as a comedy actor to his more serious turn as a director and so much more. Thoughtful and soft-spoken, »

Getting into character!Kristen Stewart was spotted rocking bright orange hair for her upcoming film, "American Ultra," on Wednesday. She was filming just outside of New Orleans in a small town called Gramercy, where she shot scenes with costar Jesse Eisenberg.In addition to her fiery tresses, the "Twilight" alum sported a long, polka-dot skirt, cream sweater, red plaid flannel and brown lace-up boots. The new look is a drastic change for K. Stew, but it may not last too long. Last January, the 24-year-old actress admitted she plans to chop off all her hair one day."If I wasn't an actor, I would definitely do things to my hair. I would cut it more, I would dye it more," she revealed in an interview with Into the Gloss. "At some point I want to do a total boy cut, completely -- not a pretty, girly version -- like a straight up James Dean haircut. »

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg got into some serious grunge duds when they headed to work for their new film, American Ultra, in New Orleans on Tuesday. Jesse wore a long wig and orange converse while redheaded Kristen sported a '90s-appropriate ensemble, which included a long polka-dot skirt, hiking boots, and a plaid fleece jacket. Jesse plays a "stoner slacker" whose small-town life with his girlfriend, played by Kristen, is turned upside down when he's thrust into a covert government operation. The project also stars Sharon Stone, Bill Pullman, and Topher Grace. Kristen was back to work after celebrating her 24th birthday last week in Nola with a group of friends, including Jesse. She spent the day chilling at a park with a group of friends (and some playful pups) and later headed to a dinner. She has been on the move over the past few months as she »

Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) stars as Mike, a hapless, lazy stoner, happy with his boring life with girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart – Twilight). However, unknown to Mike and everyone around him he’s actually a secret agent. When his past flashes before his eyes the realities of the responsibility of his power surface, especially when he’s called in to support a deadly government operation. Co-starring Topher Grace (That ’70s Show), John Leguizamo (Kick-ass 2), Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Walton Goggins (Django Unchained), Stone joins the cast as Victoria Lasseter.
With Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) directing and Max Landis (Chronicle) behind the script this could go either way – brilliantly witty and action-packed…or a little lacklustre. We’ll have to wait and see.
American Ultra is already in production. It currently has »

Sometimes when casting rumours emerge, everything works out: deals are struck, hands shook and ink hits paper. Other times, such as with recent indications that Uma Thurman would join action comedy American Ultra, events simply don’t go that way. So now we have Sharon Stone taking on the role instead.American Ultra, which will find Project X's Nima Nourizadeh directing a Max Landis script, follows what happens when a small-town stoner called Mike (Jesse Eisenberg) discovers that he’s not quite the man he thinks he is. Happily living an unmotivated life with his girlfriend Phoebe, Mike suddenly learns that he’s not simply a joint-happy slacker; he is, in fact, a highly trained, sharp-shooting, fist-flinging sleeper.Of course, upon learning that he’s essentially Bourne with a bong, Mike’s life is instantly in danger and he’s forced to summon all his sublimated skills to survive. »
The second book in Yancey’s planned trilogy, The Infinite Sea, will be published on September 16.
