C.O.W.L., or the Chicago Organized Workers League, consists of individuals with powers and some without. All members of the league, whether it is the telekinetic Radia or the honest detective John Pierce, are out to fight a common enemy: the villains that commit crimes and threaten the greater good of the city of Chicago. The premise may sound redundant, however, there are particular examples that utilized the genre of superheroes in a very unique way. C.O.W.L. has the potential, and to a certain extent captures an early feel of the impact that Watchmen would have not only on the genre, but also on comics as a whole.
Writers Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel start the first issue of C. »

Batman-News.com reports that Ben Affleck sports a traditional Batsuit, the one we've already seen, for much of the film. However, he also slip on an armored Batsuit akin to the one from Frank Miller's acclaimed comic "The Dark Knight Returns".
Their source, who claims to have been in touch with Affleck's personal trainer on the film, says: "The armored suit has Kryptonite all over it, and it can shoot missiles." They also say there are apparently two Batmobiles, and Affleck has a scene where he is shirtless and overlooking a destroyed city.

Critics did not like it. Audiences did not like it. And yet, thanks most likely to its status as one of the few spooky flicks to enjoy during the Halloween season, Ouija took the box office crown with an estimated $20 million. It was still not good news for an overall dipping box office trend, as second place went to the new (and much better received) John Wick. Keanu Reeves made good with an estimated $14.2 million start and good word of mouth, but along with Ouija had no reported budget numbers, so whether Reeves finally has a winner on his hands is undetermined.
Fury (estimated $13 million), Gone Girl (estimated $11.1 million), and The Book of Life (estimated $9.8 million) all stayed in roughly the same positions, if only pushed down by new releases, but only Gone Girl is a winner and the highest earner in the current top ten. Fury and The Book of Life »

Michael C here wondering if we are ever going to get more films about 20th Century conflicts other than World War 2? How long has it been since we've had a solid Vietnam film? Did Three Kings and Jarhead say all there was to say about the first Iraq war?
At this point, it feels like there are enough World War II movies to reconstruct something close to the entirety of the conflict, across all theaters of operation. Audiences can be forgiven if the appearance of yet another crew of hard-bitten soldiers marauding through the German countryside in David Ayer’s Fury strike us as more than a bit superfluous. The diffrence this time is that Fury wants to strip away the gauzy Greatest Generation glow that has diminished other depictions of this subject matter. No American flags flapping in the wind, no swells of violins, no famous battles. Just the anonymous, »

Although we're still not certain who she's playing, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zach Snyder for a mystery role in the much-anticipated comic book showdown Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although it's far from confirmed, rumors have suggested that she might playing the Carrie Kelley Robin, Batman's sidekick from Frank Miller's epochal The Dark Knight Returns! We're sharing our thoughts on this week's Most Craved along with discussion about Eli Roth's just-announced plans to remake Cabin Fever with the same screenplay and the tremendous amount of nostalgia-driven franchises headed to television ("Full House," "Big," "Rush Hour," "Bachelor Party," and "Uncle Buck" just to name a few). »

The action-packed, graphic novel-styled thriller Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is the decade-later sequel to 2005’s Sin City, both of which are directed Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez (The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl).
We don't know your opinion, but we definitely think Eva Green is A Dame to Kill For.
The film is filled with scandal, murder, betrayal and mystery revolving around the lives of those swept up in a crime-filled underworld. Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, Sin City’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants.
Last week, a local Detroit news station spilled some significant details about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" that set the rumor mill aflame.
The source, an extra on the film who risks a $5M lawsuit over breaching his/her Nda, disclosed that Jena Malone is playing Robin, who's also known as Carrie Kelley in Frank Miller's comic series "The Dark Knight Returns." Whether or not that's true, Malone has been spotted on the set and also recently posted a self-portrait of herself to Instagram with flaming red hair. (For more spoilery details, check out this report from The Wrap.)
According to The Hollywood Reporter, several of its sources have confirmed that Malone is attached to the film, although the role is still a mystery. Mmm, yeah, a mystery. A $5 million mystery!

Before he began work on Marvel's Netflix series "Daredevil," British actor Charlie Cox took on a role in the upcoming Stephen Hawking biopic "The Theory of Everything". Attending that film's premiere this week, Cox spoke to Heat Vision about his "Daredevil" role and the reaction he's received so far:
"It's great fun, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility. I wasn't really aware of how vast the comic book world was until I became part of the Marvel universe. I went to [New York] Comic Con last week, and it's really important to a lot of people. It really is. I'm having a great time."
So far we've only seen Cox's Matt Murdock character in his civilian clothes and a ninja-style stealth suit which serves as an early version of his costume before he slips on a more familiar outfit. It certainly sounds like Frank Miller's stories will »

"...'Carrie' was a schoolgirl and girl scout who was attacked by muggers one night, but was saved by the recently returned and grizzled elder Batman on his first night out of retirement.
"She would then spend her lunch money on a 'Robin' costume and hunt down some petty con-men to find Batman again, using a slingshot loaded with firecrackers as weapons.
Her parents were very neglectful of her, as one-time activists and hippies during the 1960's that became 'apathetic stoners'..."

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay actress may have been cast as a female Robin, according to a Wilx-10 report later backed up by The Hollywood Reporter.
The original report also features an interview with an anonymous extra, who claims to have been on set for a fight scene between Batman and Lex Luthor at a swanky party.
The extra could face a multimillion-dollar lawsuit for violating the movie's nondisclosure agreements.
While Malone's involvement as a female Robin is yet to be officially confirmed by Warner Bros, rumours originally surfaced after the actress dyed her hair red.
Drastic times call for drastic measures.

Details for the upcoming movie remain thin on the ground, although director Zack Snyder has previously said that the film will take cues from Frank Miller's 1980s mini-series The Dark Knight Returns. »
A few months back, Jena Malone was spotted on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, directed by her Sucker Punch director Zach Snyder, fueling speculation that the actress has a part in the upcoming first step on the road to a DC Cinematic Universe. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed she will have a mystery role in the movie. Of course, this has put the rumour mill into overdrive, with the most popular being that she will be portraying Carrie Kelly, a female version of Batman's sidekick Robin from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns mini series. Snyder is already drawing from The Dark Knight Returns for the look of Batman's costume, and even used an excerpt from the series' final issue to announce the project at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, so it's a rumour that could have some legs. Of course, it's all speculation until we hear something concrete, »

(Tread carefully; there are Major Spoilers ahead!) This morning, a news report from Channel 10 Wilx in East Lansing, Michigan, confirmed that a female Robin will be appearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The news came from an extra who wished to remain anonymous. This matched up with earlier reports that actress Jena Malone had dyed her hair red to play Carrie Kelley, the Robin in Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns. Now The Hollywood Reporter is confirming that Jena Malone has indeed been cast in director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel follow-up. But is she playing Robin?
There is no confirmation from Warner Bros. or DC about this late addition to the cast, or which character she is actually playing. According to the Channel 10 news report, the character was added to the script late in the game during some last minute rewrites. Multiple sources confirm that Jena Malone »
The other month actress Jena Malone was spotted on the set of Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". At the time some speculated she had a role in the film, but that talk was dismissed and it was suggested that the actress was merely visiting Snyder who had worked with her on "Sucker Punch".
It turns out there may have been more to it than first thought. This morning came a report from Channel 10 Wilx in Michigan in which a source for them, an extra from the set who wished to remain anonymous, claims that Malone is in the film and she's playing a female Robin.
The source for the news station also described a scene set at Lex Luthor's house (which is actually being shot at an Art Museum on the Michigan State University campus), where the super villain gets in a physical altercation with Bruce Wayne. »

Rumors of Malone’s involvement in the highly-anticipated superhero showdown began a few months ago, when the actress visited the set of the film. At the time, her visit was chalked up as nothing more than just that, a visit to her friend Zack Snyder. However, rumors like this don’t die easily, and were given new life this month when Malone was spotted with red dyed hair. That may seem like a minor detail, but for fans of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns (which Snyder is drawing heavy influences from for Bvs), that pointed toward Malone playing the female Robin, Carrie Kelley.
I’ll be the first to admit that I found those early rumors a bit ridiculous, »

A news report out of Detroit has a few big bits of information about Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman, and the biggest report is that a character long-speculated about will finally appear in the film. According to a local reporter, Robin will make an appearance. And in keeping with the influence from Frank Miller’s Batman […]

The latest rumor surrounding Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is that the film will feature a female Robin a.k.a. Carrie Kelly played by actress Jena Malone. This news comes from a local news station in Detroit Michigan where the film is currently shooting. One of the things they are currently shooting involves Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). You can read more about that here, but click at your own risk because there are spoilers.
Wilx-10 News reporter Kirk Montgomery talked with one of the extras at Michigan State University, who said, “I’ve also learned that the character of Robin is now female.” On top of that Malone, who recently appeared in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, has been seen on the set of the film sporting a new red hairdo.

Warner Bros has been hard at work on "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" in Detroit, where local news crews have been stalking the film, trying to break whatever they could about the production. Now it appears one station is at the center of a controversy about information they revealed. While there are plenty of details that have already been confirmed about the film, the vast majority of what we'll see in March of 2016 is still a mystery. And good for them. Warner Bros. has no other film in production right no that is more important to their overall game plan for their tentpole movies for the next six years. Forget about the creative side for a moment… just in terms of numbers, this movie matters more to them than anything else they're making right now. If it works, they are off to the races. If it doesn't, then they're »

Rumors about Batman's sidekick are nothing new for Dawn of Justice (including Nightwing talk), but now a supposed extra on the set has come forward to confirm Robin is in the film and will be a female. There's more on this report, but if you're trying to avoid any potential spoilers, now's your chance to turn around.
If the latest report is to be believed (it's coming from a news station and then shared by The Wrap, so it's decently credible), then it looks like Jena Malone could be our new Robin in the form of Carrie Kelley. As I mentioned, the report is coming from a news cast, where an extra talked to them about Warner Bros. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, risking a $5 million breach of contract lawsuit in the process.
He claims that Jena Malone (Hunger Games: Catching Fire), who sparked rumors a while ago by »

Warning: there are mild Spoilers in this article.
As the main bulk of shooting in Detroit wraps on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, a local NBC-affiliate news team in the Lansing area has become privy to a glut of new information about the sequel. That’s nothing out of the ordinary, especially after we saw aerial shots of a new set being built for Zack Snyder’s follow-up yesterday in New Mexico. However, today’s news may cost one shortsighted extra a whopping $5 million. Why? Because he broke a confidentiality agreement by revealing secretive plot points with a Wilx-10 reporter.
The biggest piece of info concerns Batman’s loyal sidekick, Robin, who we are now led to believe is female. This rumour remains unconfirmed (obviously, as the studio didn’t opt to reveal it) but might hold true as this isn’t the first time the idea has been suggested. »
