Joseph Gordon-Levitt is easily one of the busiest and most talented young actors working in Hollywood, and he's been branching out in other aspects of the business. On top of acting, he's currently running his HitRECord web project, he made his directorial debut with Don Jon, and he was an executive producer on Looper. He's now looking at developing the long awaited big-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Sandman, which he is looking to star in and direct.
"It's a lot of the same people who worked on the Nolan Batman movies. It's really exciting. There's not a script yet, we're still kind of working it out because it's such a complicated adaptation because Sandman wasn't written as novels. Sin City was written as a novel. »

Like Watchmen, Sandman is considered to be one of those comic books which is impossible to bring to the big screen. However, as Zack Snyder eventually did with Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ graphic novel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is looking to helm a live-action adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s beloved Sandman.
The Don Jon director is attached to produce and direct the movie from a pitch by Man of Steel writer David Goyer. Jack Thorne (A Long Way Down) was recently revealed to be working on the script, but in a recent interview, Levitt confirmed that they’re still very much in the early stages of developing the project.
“Right now we’re working on a script,” the actor and filmmaker revealed. “It’s me and Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros. It’s a really cool team of people. »

A feature film adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s seminal Sandman comic book has been in development hell for years now, leaving many fans doubtful that the beloved series would ever make it to the big screen. Late last year, however, The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer (who recently signed a first-look deal with Warner Brothers) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt announced that they were working on an adaptation, with Gaiman himself on board to give them a hand.
There’s no word on when we can expect to see the film hit theaters, or whether or not it’s one of the nine untitled DC projects slated for release between 2016 and 2020. Rumor has it that Gordon-Levitt will star in and direct the project as well, but according to him, his focus right now is nailing the screenplay. He recently spoke with Moviefone, and gave the following »

Between his hitRECord series, burgeoning directorial career, and flourishing acting career, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has proven himself to be an excellent multi-tasker. He recently wrapped the starring role in director Robert Zemeckis’ 3D drama The Walk, but he’s also still very much developing an adaptation of the beloved Neil Gaiman comic Sandman. Gordon-Levitt is attached to produce and direct the film based on a pitch by Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer, and last we heard How I Live Now scribe Jack Thorne had been tapped to pen the script. While Gordon-Levitt is plenty busy with his various other projects, he recently provided a status update on Sandman, saying he and his team are still working on putting together the script. Read what he had to say after the jump. Speaking with Moviefone, Gordon-Levitt said Sandman is still in the early stages: “Right now we're working on a script. »

With Warner Bros. Pictures scheduling almost a dozen films based on DC Comics properties over the next few years, not all of them will necessarily be a part of the same cinematic universe.
One likely standalone work is the film adaptation of Neil Gaiman's acclaimed comic "Sandman" which Joseph Gordon-Levitt and David Goyer are involved with and Jack Thorne is adapting the script for. Levitt, who has been out promoting "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," spoke with Moviefone recently and offered an update on how the project is going:
"Right now we're working on a script. It's me and Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros. It's a really cool team of people. It's a lot of the same people who worked on the Nolan 'Batman' movies. It's really exciting.

Between HitRECord, his directorial debut Don Jon and his executive producer credit on Looper, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been branching out in filmmaking. But the dapper leading man is getting ambitious, by digging into a long-stalled adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Sandman for Warner Bros. Gordon-Levitt was first tied to the resurrected adaptation back in November of 2013, but now, he's sharing details on how The Sandman is developing. While promoting Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Joseph Gordon-Levitt told Moviefone that he's working in the script with David S. Goyer and Neil Gaiman. He explains: "It's a lot of the same people who worked on the Nolan Batman movies. It's really exciting. There's not a script yet, we're still kind of working it out because it's such a complicated adaptation because Sandman wasn't written as novels. Sin City was written as a novel. Sandman is 75 episodic issues. There's a reason »
According to Joseph Gordon-Levitt – who is currently on board as producer and will likely also star – the big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s seminal graphic novel series Sandman doesn’t have a complete script yet. Speaking exclusively to Moviefone while promoting his latest flick Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Gordon-Levitt spoke candidly about the slow progression of Sandman and what we all can hope to expect…
“Right now we’re working on a script. It’s me and David S. Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros. It’s a really cool team of people. It’s a lot of the same people who worked on the Nolan Batman movies. It’s really exciting.”

Filming for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is in full swing, and MTV News has brought the latest photo from the Detroit, Michigan, set. While we've officially seen Henry Cavill in his new Superman suit already, the Man of Steel star was spotted on set earlier this week hiding the Kryptonian getup with a black cloak. Today, however, Cavill was heading back to his trailer when he uncovered the goods long enough for papz to get a good shot, as seen in the photo below! Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter. The film, written by Chris Terrio from David S. Goyer's screenplay, and directed by Zack Snyder, hits March 25, 2016! »
For almost 50 years, Batman has graced the silver screen. Whether working solo or accompanied by sidekicks and associates, Gotham City is continually saved by his enduring presence. Even though the eight theatrical live-action films featuring the Caped Crusader have had their ups and downs, there is no denying his appeal as a lead character.
With that in mind, these are all theatrical Batman releases, ranked from worst to best:
8. Batman and Robin (1997)
The dark cloud over a struggling franchise, Joel Schumacher’s second directorial outing in the Batman franchise hammered the last nail in the coffin and became known as one of the worst sequels, nay films, of all time. From the garish set design, poor character development, uninspired casting and hideously unfunny pun-filled script, Batman and Robin was a mistake from the moment it went into production.
7. Batman: The Movie (1966)
Occasionally forgotten as the first theatrical Batman film, this »

Scoot McNairy’s role in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is shrouded in secrecy, but a new set photo could provide a clue as to who exactly the Monsters star will be playing in the Zack Snyder helmed movie.
McNairy joining the cast came as a pleasant surprise and was likely on the recommendation of Argo director Ben Affleck (who plays Bruce Wayne/Batman in this movie) and writer Chris Terrio who was brought on board to rewrite David Goyer’s initial draft shortly after Affleck joined the ambitious project.
As you can see from the set photo below, the actor is wearing CGI socks which will obviously lead to some changes being made to his legs in post-production. There have been rumours of The Flash making an appearance not in costume, so it could be that we see McNairy head into action in the suit you see above »

It seems Holly Hunter, Tao Okamoto, and (The Flash?) Scoot McNairy weren't the only stars on set today filming for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Thanks to Just Jared (via @Banadoc), more photos have surfaced from the Detroit, Michigan, production finally revealing Superman himself, Henry Cavill. Although his altered Man of Steel suit, which we got an official look at back in July, is mostly covered by a black cloak, check out the photos for another peek as Cavill exits his trailer! Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter.

The Dark Knight (2008) reunites director Christopher Nolan ("The Prestige") with star Christian Bale ("Empire of the Sun"), who returns to continue Batman’s war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as the Joker (Heath Ledger), who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces the Dark Knight ever closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante. The Dark Knight (2008) was directed by Christopher Nolan, from a script written by Jonathan Nolan, David S. Goyer and of course Christopher Nolan himself. The film starred: Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Heath Ledger as Joker, Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, Michael Caine as Alfred, Maggie Gyllenhaal as Rachel, Gary Oldman as Gordon, »
Sneak Peek footage revealing actor Ben Affleck, playing 'Bruce Wayne' aka 'Batman' in "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", nursing an injured left shoulder on the new film's Detroit, Michigan set August 9, 2014:
"...Affleck, was sent home from set after straining his body due to a complicated move using his left shoulder. 'It was hurting him pretty bad' a source revealed. 'He’s putting his all into this role and it’s pretty physically demanding. The trips to the gym are two, sometimes three times a day and on set he’s like a machine.

After an extensive search, it looks like NBC has finally found its villain for Constantine. According to USA Today, newcomer Michael James Shaw has been cast in a recurring role as Papa Midnite, the “voodoo king of New Orleans” and a formidable magical adversary to the series’ titular supernatural detective.
Shaw is known for such riveting roles as “Caterer” in Today _ _ cks, “Homesless Man” on The Wire (uncredited), and “Don-o-mite” in an eponymous 2014 short film. Needless to say, Constantine is the biggest role he’s landed yet, and I’m interested to see what he does with it.
Papa Midnite was last played by Gladiator and Guardians of the Galaxy alum Djimon Hounsou, who was great in an otherwise lackluster film. In the comics, Midnite first appeared in Hellblazer issue #1 as an immortal mob boss, businessman, and voodoo practitioner operating out of New York City. He often operates on the wrong side of the law, »

The voodoo king of New Orleans is heading to NBC’s Constantine, with USA Today revealing that Michael James Shaw has secured the role of Papa Midnite in the upcoming DC television show. The character is described as ” a formidable magical adversary for demon hunter John Constantine… though with evil forces rising on Earth, they might have to hug it out and become uneasy allies sooner than later.”
Constantine is set to premiere on October 24th in the States, with a cast that includes Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) as John Constantine alongside Angelica Celaya (Burn Notice) as Zed, Harold Perrineau (Lost) as Manny and Charles Halford (True Detective) as Chas Chandler. The show has been created by Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel), with Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones) directing the pilot. Watch the latest trailer here.

Michael James Shaw will have a recurring role as Papa Midnite, the voodoo king of New Orleans who serves as a primary adversary to Matt Ryan's John Constantine. In the original Hellblazer comics, Papa Midnite and Constantine didn't see eye to eye since his first appearance in Hellblazer #1, but they have also been allies at different times during the original comic's run. USA Today reports that, with "evil forces rising on Earth," Constantine and Midnite may have to join forces.
It isn't known exactly when Papa Midnite will make his debut on the series, or how many episodes he will be featured in.
New plot spoilers have been revealed regarding the currently shooting "Man of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", showcasing DC Comics superheroes 'Batman', Superman' and 'Wonder Woman':
"...'Lex Luthor', sworn enemy of 'Superman', gathers pieces of the 'World Engine', an ancient piece of 'Kryptonian' alien technology revealed in "Man Of Steel' and uses it to synthesize 'Kryptonite', while the body of slain alien 'General Zod' has tissue extracted to create an enemy capable of defeating Superman. There is also a scene when 'Batman' breaks into 'Lexcorp' to steal the kryptonite.
The enemy created by Lexcorp is 'Doomsday', a monster who killed Superman in DC Comics' 1990's "Death of Superman" storyline..."
