Who Jena Malone Is Probably Playing In Batman v Superman

30 July 2015 2:57 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We still have eight months until Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in theaters, but that.s not going to stop the rumor mill from spinning. The latest scuttlebutt to make the rounds involves the possible identity of Jena Malone.s character in the movie. Be warned, there are potential spoilers beyond this point. If you.re averse to such things, leave now. You.ve been warned. According to Latino Review.s industry sources, the Hunger Games and Donnie Darko star will appear in Dawn of Justice as Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner James Gordon, and the civilian alter ego of both Batgirl and Oracle in the comics. This latest bit of news runs contrary to earlier reports that Malone is playing a version of Robin based on the Carrie Kelley character from Frank Miller.s The Dark Knight Returns.

Malone's "Dawn of Justice" Role Revealed?

30 July 2015 2:23 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Last year came a rumor that not only would there be a Robin appearing in Zack Snyder's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice," but that it would be female and akin to the version seen in Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" comic.

At the time there were also rumors that Snyder's "Sucker Punch" star Jena Malone would be taking on the character as she was spotted on Detroit set for a brief period sporting red hair like the character did in the Miller comic.

With the film's recent Comic Con trailer now confirming that at least one male Robin has died prior to the events of the movie, and offering no suggestion of a replacement, the talk of Malone's potential involvement has switched to another character.

Latino Review claims to have heard from three different sources that Malone is playing Barbara Gordon in the film. Whether she'll just be herself, »

Rumor: Jena Malone's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Role Finally Revealed

30 July 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When it was revealed that Jena Malone had been cast in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (a role she dyed her hair red for), fans immediately began speculating that she would be playing Carrie Kelly. After all, this movie is taking inspiration from Frank Miller's classic The Dark Knight Returns, so that theory made at least some sense. Then, The Hollywood Reporter weighed in by indicating that they had heard that was indeed the role The Hunger Games star had been chosen for.  Maybe not! According to Latino-Review, Malone has actually been cast as Barbara Gordon, a character better know to us all as either Batgirl or Oracle! They're not sure what exactly her role in Batman v Superman will be, but Snyder could really go either way with the character here.  Malone always seemed a bit old for Carrie, and Barbara - another redhead - seems like »

New 'Batman v Superman' Pictures, and Why 'Dawn of Justice' is the Full Title

30 July 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's not a Man of Steel sequel (supposedly), so it's not Man of Steel 2. It's also got Batman in it, has reportedly drawn some inspiration from Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" and will feature the two title superheroes squaring off. Thus it would be assumed the title would be Batman vs. Superman, but no, not "vs." and not "versus", the latter of which would only add another "s" where it already had one too many, and what's with the periodc But hold off, it's not even going to be Batman v Superman, because that would imply this was a single film, and not part of a cinematic multiverse. No, it's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and director Zack Snyder tells "Empire" magazine why the need for the subtitle in a new cover story that also delivers a batch of new pictures.

10 Sh*tty Sequels That Could Be Heading Our Way

30 July 2015 1:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The landscape of cinema today is a vastly different and distinctly less-original one than previous decades. Itʼs hard to put your finger on exactly when the tide began to turn, but it’s safe to admit we live in an age of sequel-mania.

Currently there are a staggering 142 sequels either in-production or development across numerous studios. Some are justified and worthy of warranting second instalments, whilst others will strike you as desperate attempts at squeezing out that last remaining trickle of money from a dying franchise.

Here is a selection of the most sh*tty and unnecessary sequels (possibly given the the protracted production of some) heading our way in the next few years.

 

10. Sin City 3 Dimension Films

Although nothing is set in stone, reports suggest Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller may team-up once again for a third Sin City movie.

The original was innovative and a blood-splattered shot of adrenaline. »

Interview: Mike Johnson talks Star Trek

25 July 2015 1:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of Star Trek/Green Lantern #1 and the Sdcc news of Star Trek: Starfleet Academy just breaking Villordsutch managed to sit down and chat with the always busy Mike Johnson

Villordsutch: Your name is attached in the top corner of all the Star Trek ongoing series comics Mike, and you’ve written up a lot of stories.  Did you arrive at the Idw doors saying, “I have a plan for the next 5 years!” or are you part of an Idw’s current Star Trek plan for the next 5 years?

Mike Johnson:  I wish I was clever enough to have five years planned out! My arrival was fortuitous, because at the time I was working for Alex Kurtzman & Bob Orci, who were in the process of writing and producing the 2009 Star Trek movie. With their encouragement I had already been writing for DC Comics, and when the »

"Civil War" Haircut, "Ultron" Blu-Ray Trailer

24 July 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Been a long time since a new hair cut has caused such talk.

Scarlett Johansson has been spotted returning to the "Captain America: Civil War" set after a break from filming. The catch? She's got a new hairdo and Just Jared has posted the shots of the actress sporting her own natural hair dyed Black Widow's signature red color - but way shorter.

When not on-set in a more regular Black Widow style wig, Johansson usually kept her blond hair intact - like she did back in May shooting scenes for 'Civil War' with a long red wig as seen here. This has immediately sparked speculation that Black Widow will get her locks chopped off in the film into a pixie-style reminiscent of her appearance in Frank Miller's "Daredevil" comic run.

Omg Scarlett Johansson has dyed her blonde hair Natasha Romanoff red, Could This Be short hair Natasha??? pic. »

'Captain America: Civil War' Gives Black Widow a Drastic New Look?

24 July 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Are you ready for Black Widow to get a makeover? Seems Marvel might be! Actress Scarlett Johansson was spotted away from the Captain America: Civil War set sporting a new hairdo that she tried very hard to hide. An actress with a different hair style wouldn't normally be anything new to report, but the shorn hair is still dyed Black Widow red, a color Scarlett Johansson doesn't usually keep when out of character. Is Natasha Romanova getting a drastic new look?

Since her debut on the big screen in 2010's Iron Man 2, Black Widow has altered her appearance in both hair and suit in each following movie, with Scarlett Johansson showing up in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and this year's Avengers: Age of Ultron. And her hair has gradually gotten shooter with each new adventure. But the 'pixie' cut, which is buzzed close to the scalp, »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Justice League: Gods and Monsters’

24 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bruce Timm has achieved legendary status in certain circles for his contributions to Warner Bros. Animation — including the “Justice League” TV series — and returns to that niche in a dazzling way with “Justice League: Gods and Monsters,” an original alternate-universe rewrite of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman’s origins. Conceived by Timm and writer Alan Burnett, this direct-to-Blu-Ray release plays like a mind-bending fever dream, owing a spiritual debt to Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” but standing very much on its own. Clearly calibrated to wow comics aficionados, anyone who can distinguish Batman from Man-Bat will want this baby on their shelves.

In this bizarre (no, not Bizarro) world, Superman (Benjamin Bratt), Batman (Michael C. Hall) and Wonder Woman (Tamara Taylor) operate out of the Tower of Justice, working on behalf of a government that capitalizes on their talents but fears it cannot control them. When the President »

Does This Photo Reveal A Drastic New Look For 'Black Widow' In Captain America: Civil War?

23 July 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As you can see from the image below (via Just Jared), Scarlett Johansson has been spotted out and about with a very different hairdo than we're used to seeing. This would normally be no big deal, but the fact that she's a) seemingly trying to conceal it, and b) it's still a Black Widow shade of red, definitely appears to indicate that this could be her look for Captain America: Civil War.  Bear in mind that the comic book version of Black Widow sported a similar short style during Frank Miller's Daredevil run, so a change of look for the character wouldn't be too huge a departure from the source material. We've obviously seen the actress on the Atlanta set with her now familiar long haired look, so perhaps this new do will factor into the plot somehow. What do you guys think? »

‘Hawkeye’ #22 concludes the series in a blaze of glory

16 July 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hawkeye #22

Storytellers: Matt Fraction and David Aja

Colorist: Matt Hollingsworth

Publisher: Marvel Comics

Five months after Clint Barton’s faithful dog Lucky showed up with an arrow in his mouth in Hawkeye #21, Hawkeye #22 is finally out and ties up the series’ arc in a violent, emotional bow. (Pun fully intended.) Storytellers Matt Fraction and David Aja bring back both Hawkeyes  and show how much Kate Bishop has progressed as a character throughout series, and how much Clint hasn’t progressed in the best of ways. Like last issue, Hawkeye #22 is mainly action, but artists Aja and Hollingsworth raise the stakes with a variety of artistic tricks, including Aja’s trademark multi-panel grids, making Chris Eliopoulos’ lettering look like panels Will Eisner or Frank Miller style, and the use of silhouettes.

Aja’s vivisection of the comics page in Hawkeye #22 makes for smooth, coherent reading and  his bigger panels that much more meaningful, »

'Batman Vs Superman': What We Learned at Comic-Con

14 July 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The dust has finally settled on Comic-Con 2015, and we're left with quite a few awesome souvenirs. One of the best being the brand-new, full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which helped cap off a memorable panel for Warner Bros. that also included The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Pan and a surprise appearance from David Ayer and his Suicide Squad cast. As huge as that collective is, the Batman v Superman trailer brought down the house, giving us Much more than the underwhelming first trailer from April.

The trailer offered our first look at Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) in action, Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) doing his best Kurt Cobain impression and an explanation of exactly why Batman (Ben Affleck) has beef with Superman (Henry Cavill). But the trailer was just the tip of the iceberg, with Zack Snyder and the entire cast shedding some much-needed light on this iconic story. »

True Detective Season 2 Recap: “Down Will Come”

13 July 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Recovering from the utter madness of Comic-Con 2015, which this writer just returned to some 11 hours ago, made the uptick in potent, rousing moments in True Detective Season 2’s fourth episode all the more disorienting. “Down Will Come” ends with the sort of visceral, bloody tragedy that actually matches Season 2’s lugubrious tone, whereas the rest of the season thus far (including a large amount of this episode) has simply felt portentous. The attempted taking of Ledo Amarilla (Cesar Garcia), the first strong suspect in the murder of Vinci’s city manager, ends with dozens of casualties, as well as the death of Detective Dixon (W. Earl Brown), one of this season’s more intriguing characters; that’s not even mentioning that the extended shoot-out ends with the shooting of Amarilla himself. Credit the talented television director Jeremy Podeswa, a veteran of Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire, for giving the »

Comic-Con: Warner Bros. Unveils 'Superman vs. Batman: Dawn of Justice' (Trailer)

12 July 2015 12:56 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It was a major power move when Warner Bros. put two of the biggest comic heroes of all time in one movie. You could almost hear them saying, "Take that, Marvel!" At Saturday's Comic-Con panel the studio wowed Hall H with a dramatic three-panel display running down the sides of the massive space. And threw up all the DC titles in the works: "Justice League" 1 and 2, "Suicide Squad," "The Flash," "Cyborg," and "Aquaman."  Warner Bros. has been through many iterations of DC's Batman at this point, from Tim Burton and Michael Keaton through Val Kilmer, George Clooney and finally, the winning Chris Nolan trilogy starring Christian Bale. Now Ben Affleck is taking on the role of an older Dark Knight (influenced by Frank Miller's take on the character) who decides to get back into his Batgear in order to set his vigilante sights on too-powerful evil alien Superman.

Warner Bros lights up San Diego

11 July 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Comic-con: Warner Bros set the bar high with the first Hall H session of Saturday, unleashing a slick and loud session that suggested it has begun to execute on a long-term strategy to exploit the treasures that lie within the DC Comics vaults.

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice was the jewel in the crown, but the wrap-around panels that stretched along the side walls of Hall H pointedly referenced two Justice League films, a Green Lantern project, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Suicide Squad.

Zack Snyder and his key Batman v Superman cast of Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Amy Adams took centre stage as the studio did a good job of ratcheting up anticipation levels ahead of the summer 2016 release.

The trailer for Batman v Superman delighted the crowd and profiled a gritty, disturbing world reminiscent of the Gotham created in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy.
