'Superman' Solo Movie Not Happening Until After 2020?

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in October, Warner Bros. unveiled their slate of DC Comics superhero movies, which didn't include a stand alone adventure for Superman starring Henry Cavill. The actor will reprise his role as the Man of Steel in next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before appearing in Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2. But it isn't known if we'll ever get a stand alone Superman sequel with the actor in the lead. With the inclusion of Ben Affleck's Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, some fans are wondering how large a role Superman even has in this next DC outing. Henry Cavill tells Entertainment Weekly that the movie is not even a sequel to 2013's Man of Steel, something we've heard expressed many times before.

"As far as the individual character is concerned, this is not a Superman sequel. It's more of an introduction to Batman, »

'Justice League Part 1' Script Is Finished

3 July 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When DC Comics and Warner Bros. announced their crazy 9 movie line-up back in August of last year, many thought it was way too ambitious. Fans and pundits alike shook their heads, claiming there was no way it could happen. But the studios are proving them all wrong. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is completed and awaiting release next March, Suicide Squad is near the end of filming in Toronto and will soon move into post-production, and Wonder Woman is currently in the stages of pre-production and has a director attached in Patty Jenkins. Now comes word from EW that the script for Justice League Part 1 is finished!

Screenwriter Chris Terrio has completed the screenplay, though it isn't known how many drafts it has been through, or how many polishes it will need before the movie begins shooting next year for its set release date of November 10, 2017. It's not the »

3 July 2015 6:12 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek a new official image of actor Jesse Eisenberg as criminal master-mind 'Lex Luthor', plus a behind-the-scenes look at him, with and without his wig and hairpiece, on the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" follow-up "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

The original 'Alexander Joseph "Lex" Luthor', created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, debuted in "Action Comics" #23 (April 1940), with a full head of red hair...

...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 and Ben Affleck Talk 'Batman v Superman' & 'Man of Steel' Easter Egg Idea

2 July 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

San Diego Comic-Con is fast approaching, and Warner Bros. is hoping to make a big statement in Hall H this year. In preparation for WB's big panel, Entertainment Weekly has published their 2015 Comic-Con Preview issue featuring Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman on the cover. In the article about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zack Snyder talks more about the inspiration for the film and the large task of building a universe. It all started with an off-handed remark from Snyder to Chris Nolan and David S. Goyer about a potential easter egg. "I said, 'What about at the end of Man of Steel we do a scene where there's a crate full of kryptonite delivered to Wayne Manor. Everyone was like... Okaay. Once you say it out loud it's a problem because you can't unsay it," says Snyder. And thus, Batman v Superman was born. amz asin="1563893428" size="small »

Batman V Superman Started Off As A Joke, According To Zack Snyder

2 July 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 that Batman and Superman would finally appear together in a live-action film, nearly all of collective geekdom went insane with glee. Two years later and less than a year from release, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has become more than just a shared adventure between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel, as it.s also kicking off the grander Dccu by introducing other heroes like Wonder Woman and Aquaman. What you may not know is that this whole game-changing DC Comics project started as a simple joke from the director. Originally just meant to be an Easter Egg for Man of Steel, Zack Snyder told EW about the first time he pitched the idea to fellow franchise "co-captains" Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer. According to Snyder: I said, .What about at the end of the movie we do »

Zack Snyder Reveals The Easter Egg Idea He Pitched Christopher Nolan And David Goyer For 'Man Of Steel'

2 July 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While is name is longer associated with Warner Bros. unfolding cinematic universe of DC movies, Christopher Nolan lent his input, brand and producing stamp on "Man Of Steel," along with David S. Goyer, who wrote the screenplay and the forthcoming followup, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice." And as ideas were being tossed around for the Superman movie, Zack Snyder had a brainwave about how to reintroduce Batman, and set up the battle between the two comic book titans, and he pitched it to both Nolan and Goyer. “I said, ‘What about at the end of the movie we do a scene where there’s a crate full of kryptonite delivered to Wayne Manor,’” Snyder told EW. “Everyone was like…‘Okaay.’ Once you say it out loud it’s a problem because you can’t unsay it.” It's not exactly the most subtle scene to introduce and thankfully, that idea got nixed, »

Batman V Superman Hits the Cover of Entertainment Weekly for Comic-Con

2 July 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off some new images, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has landed on the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. The latest issue is previewing Comic-Con, and Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated superhero movie will have its panel on Saturday, July 11th in Hall H, and Mattel will also be offering toys from the movie. It's nice to finally see the characters in full color, though in the film I imagine they'll be a bit washed out again. It's also clear from this cover that Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman represent three very different types of heroes. Ben Affleck's Batman is bulky, almost hulking, while Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman is a bit exotic looking and is the only one brandishing a weapon. Henry Cavill's Superman, meanwhile, is the classic visualization of the "hero," even though he's an alien. Snyder recalled to EW the inception of BvS, »

"Sandman" Won't Come To TV, Follow Comic

29 June 2015 6:48 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Looking at Neil Gaiman's "Sandman," his beautifully rendered fantastical magnum opus of a graphic novel series, many have said the only way it can be properly adapted and remain relatively faithful it is to do it as a high-end cable TV series.

Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who is currently working with producer David S. Goyer and Jack Thorne on the script for the big-budget film adaptation of the property, says that the property is better done on film than as a film. In a new Reddit Ama session, he says:

"I think a big screen adaptation is a better idea and here's why. If you did the episodic version, I think it could very well end up as a not-as-good-version of what is already brilliant in the comics. But by reworking the material into a big movie, Gaiman's brilliant characters and ideas get to take shape in a way they never have before. »

'Sandman' Movie Storyline Won't Follow the Comics

29 June 2015 12:12 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently held a Reddit Ama session where he offered new details about the Sandman adaptation, which he is producing. The actor/filmmaker revealed that he is currently working on the script with producer David S. Goyer and Jack Thorne, and that he believes this story is better told as a movie, instead of a TV series. Here's what he had to say below.

"I think a big screen adaptation is a better idea and here's why. If you did the episodic version, I think it could very well end up as a not-as-good-version of what is already brilliant in the comics. But by reworking the material into a big movie, Gaiman's brilliant characters and ideas get to take shape in a way they never have before. Also, I think Sandman deserves to look absolutely mind-blowingly awesome, just on a visual level, and as cinematic as some TV shows are becoming these days, »

Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice Star Ben Affleck Shows Off His Batman Voice

28 June 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

I'm Batman. Well, actually no, but Ben Affleck is. We're probably still about a month away before we get to see and/or hear about any new footage from Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but until then, a new Instagram video posted by Seth Lee, Affleck's co-star on The Accountant, features the new Caped Crusader giving us our first soundbite of his Batman voice. Now, granted, this may not be an exact match to the voice we hear come next March, but regardless, it's still a pretty cool watch.

Will Ben Affleck Direct A Solo Batman Movie?

24 June 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While we know Ben Affleck will be donning the cowl for next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017 and 2019’s Justice League parts one and two, information on a solo adventure for his take on the Dark Knight has been very thin on the ground. Until now. According to a rumour from Latino Review, Warner Bros. are eying a November 2018 date for The Batman (putting it alongside The Flash, on March 23rd, and Aquaman, set for July 27th), and not only that, the studio has Affleck in their sights to pull double duty and direct, working from a script by his Argo scribe Chris Terrio, who was brought on board to rewrite David S. Goyer’s Batman v Superman script, and is expected to tackle the Justice League movies. While it is still just a rumour at this stage, it’s one that isn’t too surprising, considering »

Rumor: Ben Affleck to Direct The Batman for 2018 Release

24 June 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It sounds as if Ben Affleck might be bringing some gravitas behind the camera to go along with his gravelly on-screen voice in his portrayal of Batman. A new rumor has surfaced suggesting that Affleck will not only play the vigilante in Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman and both Justice League films; he'll also be directing himself in The Batman, a standalone film due out in 2018. Latino-Review is reporting just that, with the additional news that Chris Terrio has been appointed as the film's screenwriter. This lines up with what we here at Collider have been hearing for some time now--that Affleck's deal to play the Batman in a minimum of three films likely included the opportunity to write and direct his own feature focusing on the Caped Crusader. With Affleck's schedule as crazy as it is, it makes sense that screenwriting duties have fallen into the capable hands of Terrio, »
