First up is the highly anticipated Lego Movie spin-off, focusing on Will Arnett’s hilariously parodied version of Batman. While the idea was initially met with skepticism, trailers have so far indicated that this could be one of the caped crusaders greatest cinematic outings yet.

This fall, some of DC Comics' most iconic characters will unite on the big screen for Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated DC Comics adaptation Justice League. As we saw in previously-released behind-the-scenes footage, the cast seemed to have a blast filming this movie, which brings a diverse group of superheroes together on the big screen, with A-list talent (Ben Affleck), rising stars (Ezra Miller) and respected action icons (Jason Momoa). Now that production has since wrapped, Jason Momoa has offered some unique insight into the film, revealing who his favorite cast member is.
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Jason Momoa who was promoting his new TV series Frontier, when he was asked a number of rapid-fire questions related to the highly-anticipated Justice League movie, such as his first reaction to meeting both Ben Affleck (Batman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), which was apparently a very high-pitched scream. He gave »
With Ben Affleck doing the promotional rounds for his new film Live By Night, we’ve heard him responding to many questions about the status of The Batman, leading to an entire ‘will he, won’t he direct?’ saga.
Well, in an interview with Cineplex, Affleck has been asked about his next outing as Batman in November’s Justice League, during which he talked about the tonal shift we can expect from Zack Snyder’s third Dceu offering.
“Justice League, you probably saw the teaser that came out of Comic-Con; I thought it is nicely emblematic of the kind of minor tone shift and segue in storytelling,” said Affleck. “It’s a little bit lighter, the characters are a little bit more comfortable in themselves, so they can express a wider array of emotions. And there are just more people in it, so it’s more fun. It’s all »

Nickel City did not disclose the amount of the investment, which was announced Thursday with the European Film Market due to open in Berlin in less than a month. Nickel City announced in November at the American Film Market that it was partnering with Thunder Road Pictures and Entertainment 360 on “Naja,” a big-screen adaptation of the French graphic novel centering on a beautiful assassin, who is all the more deadly because she is unable to register pain.
Fasano will be responsible for overseeing the production of the company’s slate, which is focused on commercial film and television content across all genres. Fasano previously held the same position at PalmStar Media, where he was involved in the development and production of “American Ultra,” starring »

It’s pretty hard to find an actor that’s as high profile as Andrew Garfield right now. That’s exactly why he was Stephen Colbert’s most recent guest on The Late Show. The once shy seeming guy who played Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network where he co-starred with Jesse Eisenberg has officially evolved into an A-List actor and potential Oscar Winner. At first Garfield took on the role of Peter Parker in The Amazing Spiderman and it appeared he might be headed down blockbuster alley. However 2016 has been the year of amazing roles for the young British actor. First

The joke came when Jimmy Fallon noticed Matt Damon in the audience, to which he delivered a zinger suggesting that Damon’s best acting role was telling Ben Affleck (the two are very good friends) that he liked Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

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. »

Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

The Golden Globe awards are airing tonight on NBC, which in essence kicks off the annual awards season race celebrating the year's best movies. There is also another awards ceremony that hands out awards to the year's "worst" movies, the Golden Raspberry Awards, a.k.a. the Razzies. While we'll likely have to wait a short while for the full nominations to be unveiled, the 2017 Razzies short list has been unveiled, and it seems that Warner Bros.' blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has found itself in almost every category.
The nominations short list was unveiled by a YouTube user dubbed "truthhopelove," who took a video showing an email he received which features the 2017 Razzie nominations short list. The email reveals that voting will close on January 16, although the nominations won't be released until a few days later. Traditionally, the Razzie nominations come one day before the Oscar nominations are announced, »
Warner Bros. has released a new photo from the highly-anticipated Justice League movie, which assembles some of DC Comics' biggest heroes. The photo features Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa), but Superman (Henry Cavill) is still nowhere to be found. While the beloved hero is expected to be resurrected at some point in the movie, after sacrificing his life at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we don't know exactly how this will happen quite yet.
Of course, Superman's sacrifice is one of the reasons this Justice League is formed in the first place, with Batman assembling this team of heroes. USA Today debuted this new photo and spoke with director Zack Snyder, who shed some light on Wonder Woman's arc in both her stand alone movie, debuting this June, and how it »
Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder are assembling DC’s greatest heroes on the big screen for the very first time this November with the arrival of Justice League, and a new image has surfaced on Twitter, which shows a scan from a German magazine and gives us a look at the team assembled – sans Superman of course, who is presumably still dead at this point (now updated with a hi-res version).
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg »

As we head into the thick of awards season, it’s time to celebrate all the incredible films that 2016 brought us. La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Deadpool and Arrival will no doubt find themselves on the lips of many moviegoers over the next few weeks, while talent like Amy Adams, Casey Affleck, Emma Stone, Adam Driver and Denzel Washington, among others, will also start picking up some serious buzz.
But, as the best of the best start to take up most of the spotlight, there’s another another awards ceremony gearing up to get underway, and it’ll be celebrating very different types of movies and actors/actresses. We are, of course, referring to the Razzie Awards, which shine a light on the worst that the year had to offer. From the biggest losers to performances that were so dull you couldn’t stand to watch them, »

Last month, it was confirmed that Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor would make his return to the big screen in Justice League, though in what capacity remains to be seen. However, the folks over at Batman-News seem confident that Lex’s return means that we’ll be making another trip to Arkham Asylum.
At the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Lex was incarcerated and was paid a visit by Ben Affleck’s Batman. In the Ultimate Edition, Batman tells Luthor that he’s pulled a few strings, and arranged for him to be transferred to the infamous Asylum that houses many of Batman’s rogues gallery and was glimpsed briefly in Suicide Squad.
While that makes sense, further credence was given to these rumors thanks to several Justice League actors taking to IMDb to update their profiles with their roles. They are “Arkham Guard,” “Arkham Guard 2,” and “Lex Luthor Guard. »

As we inch closer and closer to the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, we’re starting to learn a little more about the upcoming blockbuster. Admittedly, we’re still very much in the dark as to what we can expect, but Warner Bros. has slowly begun peeling back the layers, revealing a film that looks to turn things around for the DC Extended Universe and hopefully make up for the disaster that was Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
We know from a recent casting announcement that Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will be back to cause more trouble and it seems that when we see him next, he’ll be in Arkham Asylum. This makes plenty of sense, given that a deleted scene from BvS – which showed up on the Ultimate Edition – had Bats telling Luthor he’d be housed there. In case you haven’t caught it yet, »

2017 has a lot going on for fans of superhero movies, but there is no doubt that one of the most exciting, or at the very least interesting things happening this year is Justice League. This will be the first time we have ever seen a live-action version of the DC Comics superhero team in a theatrically released movie, so that is a big deal. To add fuel to the potentially awesome fire, it looks like Arkham Asylum may be featured in the movie.
The first clue comes from the Justice League page on IMDb. Several actors on the page now have their roles listed as "Arkham Guard" and "Lex Luthor's Guard." In the Ultimate Edition of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, one of the scenes that didn't make it into the original cut showed Batman telling Lex Luthor that he would be heading to Arkham Asylum. Taking that into account, »

In some ways, Trainspotting is not the type of movie that begs a sequel. The frenetic, scatological story of heroine addicts Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) was hailed as an indie gem when it was released in 1996, and needed no follow-up. But on the other hand, who better to catch up with than those chemical-addled misfits? Have they cleaned themselves up? Have they built enjoyable lives? Director Danny Boyle »

It was confirmed last month that Jesse Eisenberg will return as Lex Luthor in Justice League and while many fans believe he will be the one who hires Deathstroke, we have no idea what exactly he'll be getting up to as of right now. However, according to Batman-News, we'll be paying a visit to Arkham Asylum in the superhero ensemble, something which makes sense after Batman v Superman! While most of their report seems to be speculation, the site points out that a number of Justice League extras and actors on IMDb have updated their profiles to reveal which roles they'll be playing here. Now, it's obviously worth pointing out that anyone can edit these pages, but those idiots usually just change who someone famous is playing or just add a big name who may have been rumoured to appear; it's rare they make alterations like this! Regardless, among the »
A new behind-the-scenes shot from the filming of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice shows a furious Henry Cavill charging forward, presumably during the film’s fight scene between its two titular superheroes. Check it out below…
Cavill unveiled the picture to the whole world via his Instagram and Facebook and attached a humorous caption along with it that read: “Remembering a time while shooting BvS and they told me I wasn’t allowed my usual Salted Caramel Mochaccino with skinny coconut milk and whip… #NoMercy #NoExcuses #Superman.”
Despite the negative reviews directed toward the film, most of them took no issue with Cavill’s portrayal of the Man of Steel, which, considering how much scrutiny certain actors receive for their interpretations of classic comic book characters, is worth something. The case could even be made that Cavill hasn’t really had the proper material from Dawn of Justice and »
