Zack Snyder Explains How Batman Ended Up in the 'Man of Steel' Sequel

18 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

While it's still too early for many details about the plot of "Batman vs. Superman" -- the super-secret "Man of Steel" follow-up slated for release in 2016 -- to be revealed, director Zack Snyder is opening up about his inspiration for the film, including how he decided to insert Batman into the Superman reboot's universe.

In an interview with Forbes, Snyder admitted that the idea to revisit Bruce Wayne had been with him early on in the sequel-planning process, but explained that the character's presence in the film wasn't a shoehorned excuse for a reboot so much as a natural foe for the Man of Steel.

I gotta be honest, it definitely was a thing that... after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, »

Zack Snyder talks costumes and studio competition for Batman vs Superman

Forbes recently sat down with director Zack Snyder to talk all things Dcu and got him to pipe in about how he became a fan of Batman (Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns), how Batman came to be involved in the Man Of Steel sequel, a lengthy discussion about Watchmen and the Terry Gilliam feud, and finally, his reaction to seeing the new costumes for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman (aka The Trinity) and how badly he wants to share those images with the world.

10 Best Daredevil vs. Kingpin Storylines

16 April 2014 11:37 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Daredevil has been a mainstay in the Marvel Universe for 50 years, but it took nearly two decades for this iconic superhero to get a legitimate arch nemesis to call his own. When Frank Miller and Klaus Janson first incorporated Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin of crime – a villain previously associated with Spider-Man – into Daredevil in 1979, it dramatically changed the course of the series. Fisk was unquestionably the missing piece of the puzzle – bringing a physically and intellectually imposing villain into a world that was getting darker and grittier thanks to Miller and Janson’s film noir-inspired sensibilities.

In the years that followed, Daredevil and Kingpin evolved into one of comics’ very best hero/villain pairings. The two have engaged in a long-term game of cat and mouse that has featured brutal beat downs, cerebral mind games, heartbreak, betrayals and unlikely alliances. And these storylines have been crafted by »

Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Storyboard Images Are Every Bit as Sexy and Stylized as You’d Expect

16 April 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

    In addition to some recently released live-action images, we've now got a look at some of Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For storyboard images used for the film.  To me, they look like panels from Miller's source material, which makes sense considering his films are aimed at bringing the pages of his graphic novels to life.  Plenty of style on display here, but we'll have to wait until later this summer to see if the sequel's got the substance to match.  *Fyi, the images could be considered Nsfw depending on how uptight your workplace is.

Creepy Vampire-Like Version of Frank Miller's Dark Knight

15 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Christian Ronchi's version of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight looks like a creepy vampire Batman. This version of the classic superhero is pretty terrifying, and he'd definitely scare the shit out of the criminals of Gotham. I imagine the people of the city would be scared to death to leave their homes with this thing out on the streets! He looks mean as hell.

Greek Fire: Patrick Tatopoulos showcases concept art for 300: Rise of an Empire

9 April 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Patrick Tatopoulos about production designing a project which allowed him to honour his Greek heritage…

Rodrigo Santoro who portrays Xerxes on-set with Noam Murro

“The first 300 [2006] I wanted to get on board with years ago,” recalls Patrick Tatopoulos who pursued the opportunity to do the production design for the stylish historical epic helmed by Zack Snyder about the Battle of Thermopylae where 300 Spartan warriors fought the invading Persian army. “I remember that day very well. I did interviews for 300 and I Am Legend [2007]. I had my first sitting with Zack. I was really pumped. The Greek side of my family is from Sparta so when I heard that there was a movie being made I thought it was an incredible story. I was so passionate about it that I scared Zack at the time who said, ‘You actually could be directing it!’” The success of the »

Batman ’66 Puts the Biff, Bam Pow Back Into Comics

8 April 2014 7:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Batman ’66 Vol 1

Written by Jeff Parker

Drawn by Jonathan Case, Ty Templeton, Joe Quinones, Sandy Jarrell, Ruben Procopio and Colleen Coover

Published by DC Comics

Is there another fictional character who has so many clearly identifiable and distinct incarnations as Batman does? There’s the original, Silver Age Batman, Neal AdamsBatman, Frank Miller, Tim Burton, Bruce Timm, Christopher Nolan and so many other clear and different visual and narrative approaches to the character, each one signifying a distinct vision to the character. It’s all Batman, from the Dark Knight to the urban vigilante to the sleek animated hero. But then there’s the version that embarrassed comic fans for years, the Adam West version from the 1966 Batman television show. Growing up, we called it campy and silly. We called it a humiliation of a comic character that was maybe taken a bit too seriously for a bit too long. »

How did 'Community' and 'Arrested Development' get the Russos to 'Captain America 2'?

3 April 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When you look back at it, Marvel Studios has almost always taken the unconventional route when it comes to picking the directors for their movies. When most Hollywood studios would select the proven blockbuster director, indie darling or recent Oscar nominee looking for a payday Marvel has always gone in a different, um, direction. It started with Jon Favreau on "Iron Man." The former "Swingers" star and "Elf" helmer was coming off "Zathura," a critically lauded kids flick that was a bomb at the box office. Kenneth Branagh, on the other hand, had been in director's jail following four misfires in 10 years. "Thor" turned out to be his best film since 1996's "Hamlet." Joss Whedon was a geek icon for his legendary TV show "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and had major comic book cred after dabbling in writing Astonishing X-Men," but studios weren't banging down his door after "Serenity" fizzled in theaters. »

Noah Wins Weekend, Chronicle & Top Gun Sequels in the Works, Chris Evans Passes the (Human) Torch, New Sin City 2 Stills

1 April 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Box Office Based on the Bible or not, Noah was a big draw for moviegoers this past weekend, dominating the box office with a $43.7 million debut, the fourth highest of 2014. The movie was not only a coup for Paramount, but for title star Russell Crowe and director Darren Aronofsky: Noah is the highest opening ever for a Crowe-led movie and it earned more than Aronofsky's first movie movies put together!

Divergent took second, adding $25.6 million to its total, which nears the $100 million mark. Divergent actually had more staying power than similar Ya movies, dropping 53% in week two versus, e.g., The Hunger Games, which dropped 62% in its second week in theaters. Muppets Most Wanted took third with $11.3 million, while Mr. Peabody & Sherman came in fourth with $9 million. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opens this week in the States, opened internationally to an impressive $75.2 million.

Darren Aronofsky Explains Why He Didn’t Direct ‘The Wolverine’ & ‘Man Of Steel’

31 March 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After years of being a celebrated indie, relatively non-mainstream filmmaker, director Darren Aronofsky has the number one movie in the country with his biblical epic “Noah” (and it should be noted it’s a pretty dark, non-mainstreamy tentpole). And while he’s flirted with many super hero movies over the years, perhaps the Russell Crowe-starring movie will finally get him there. “In reality, our original super heroes were characters the Bible so these were the original super hero stories. People have forgotten how amazing these stories were,” Aronofsky said in a recent Epk interview. But for the traditionalists out there, Aronofsky could go down as one of the biggest “what-ifs” in super hero comic book history. The “Black Swan” filmmaker tried, failed and eventually gave up on adapting Frank Miller’s “Batman: Year One” (you can read more about on our feature: 20 Superhero Movies That Couldn't Fly All The »

Darren Aronofsky held discussions with Warner Bros. about directing Man of Steel

31 March 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having topped the U.S. box office this past weekend with his latest film Noah, director Darren Aronofsky has been doing the press rounds in promotion of the Biblical epic, and during a chat with MTV the subject of comic book movies was brought up. As we know, Aronofsky came close to rebooting the Batman franchise in the early 2000s with an adaptation of Frank Miller's Batman: Year One, while he was also set to link up with The Fountain star Hugh Jackman for last year's The Wolverine.

Well, it turns out those weren't the only two superhero movies that could have had Aronofsky's name on the credits, with the director revealing to Josh Horowitz that he held "a few conversations" with Warner Bros. and producer Christopher Nolan about helming last year's Superman reboot Man of Steel, and that he would have "absolutely" taken the job under the right circumstances. »
