A couple of weeks ago Michael Shannon offered up a few intriguing words on his role in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, suggesting that he had “flippers” for hands. Naturally this sparked a lot of debate amongst fans, and Shannon has now played down his comments in an interview with The Daily Beast, and in doing so he may have just inadvertently confirmed the inclusion of Doomsday in the DC superhero ensemble.
“Somebody was asking me about this in New York and I made up some ridiculous bullshit answer about how my character Zod has flippers, and this went viral on the Internet or something and people have been asking me about that,” states Shannon. “That is so obviously a complete bullshit story, right? But people took it seriously.”
“I wasn’t there [on set],” he continues. “It’s a really awkward situation—I’m in the trailer »

Lois Lane could find some competition for Clark Kent’s affections in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the form of Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince, a.k.a. Wonder Woman, and Heny Cavill has offered a rather diplomatic response when asked by Cosmopolitan whether the intrepid Daily Planet reporter or the Amazon Princess is a better fit for the Man of Steel.
“This is a very long discussion because there are a lot of questions to be asked and answered,” states Cavill. “I mean who is better for a super-powered alien, a human or a goddess? Yes, the goddess can do all the normal things, which we would think are normal in a relationship, and not have any fear of Superman. But you also need to have that baseline of humanity, which Lois provides. And literally keeps his feet on the ground, keeps him down to earth. So »

The Weinstein Co. has moved the U.S. release of period thriller “Shanghai” back six weeks to Oct. 2 — more than five years after it played in China.
The film, TWC’s first Asian production, was set to be shot in Shanghai in 2008, but Chinese authorities revoked the permits for political reasons. The production then relocated to Bangkok, Thailand, and the U.K., and the finished film premiered in Beijing in June 2010.
“Shanghai” is directed by Mikael Hafstrom from Hossein Amini’s script and stars Cusack as a U.S. intelligence officer trying to find out who killed his friend, portrayed by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, in the months before the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. He’s then drawn into a web of mystery, »

When Warner Bros. first announced Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2015, the DC superhero ensemble was originally set to arrive on July 17th 2015. However, the film was pushed back to May 6th, 2016, which put it head-to-head with Marvel’s then-unannounced Captain America: Civil War, before WB decided to shift the date again to March 25th 2016.
By the time the film rolls around, it will have been close to three years since the previous instalment Man of Steel, and now Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara has offered up a few words on the studio’s decision to shuffle around the release date.

Although Michael Shannon’s Man of Steel villain General Zod is confirmed to be making an appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, his exact role in the film has largely been kept a secret. While we may not know how Zod fits into the plot (spoilers), especially considering that he died in Man of Steel, actor Michael Shannon did reveal some information about his character’s strange new look in a recent interview with Vulture.
While telling an anecdote about how he got stuck in a porta-potty during the shoot, Shannon said, “I was in my costume, and I couldn’t use my fingers because in the sequel I have flippers instead of hands. So I had these wax flippers on my fingers, and I couldn’t open the door, and I could hear Zack [Snyder, the director] being like, ‘Where’s Shannon?'”
He finished the story by saying that »

Following his work on Man of Steel, costume designer Michael Wilkinson then tasked with creating the look for The Dark Knight and the Amazon Princess (not to mention Aquaman) for the upcoming DC epic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from director Zack Snyder. Now, during an interview with Peoples Choice, Wilkinson has offered some insight into his work on the hotly-anticipated blockbuster.
“We tweaked the Superman suit only slightly from our suit from Man of Steel,” states Wilkinson. “We streamlined plus sharpened the details of the costume a little to suit the more earthly (less alien) context of this film. The batsuit is a complete 180 degree turn from the previous film incarnations — our Batman’s power comes from his incredible physical strength and fighting skills, not from armor. The director Zack Snyder wanted him to look as much like the comic book version as possible — to be respectful to the original source. »

Many years ago, Mikael Håfström (1408, Escape Plan) made Shanghai, a ’40s-set mystery with a splashy international cast that included his 1408 star John Cusack along with Chow Yun-fat, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Franka Potente, Gong Li, David Morse and Ken Watanabe. The film saw release in many countries, but sat on the shelf in the Us after being purchased by — you guessed it — The […]

In a world filled with secrets, solving a mystery can be murder. The Weinstein Co has debuted the official Us trailer for a film called Shanghai, which you may remember hearing about because we ran the first trailer for this in 2010. The film has been delayed for release here in the Us for 5 years, and TWC is just now putting it out quietly this month. John Cusack stars in Mikael Håfström's Shanghai (the film Håfström made before going on to do The Rite and Escape Plan) as an expat who goes to Shanghai when it's occupied during WWII and falls for a woman and uncovers gangland secrets. Also starring Chow Yun-Fat, David Morse, Ken Watanabe, Franka Potente & Jeffrey Dean Morgan. It doesn't look so good. Have fun. Here's the official Us trailer for Mikael Håfström's Shanghai, on YouTube (via The Playlist): A '40s period piece which »

Way back in 2012, Harvey Weinstein promised that the star-studded "Shanghai," which by that point had already opened in several overseas territories, but had been sitting on the U.S. shelf for years, would finally be released via Radius. That didn't happen. Fast-forward a few years and now the movie is being dumped in a couple of weeks in limited release, and a trailer has been put together. Mikael Håfström ("1408," "Escape Plan") directs the international ensemble of John Cusack, Chow Yun-fat, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Franka Potente, Gong Li, David Morse and Ken Watanabe, in the 1940s-set story that follows an American Naval Intelligence agent named Paul Soames who travels to Shanghai, posing as a pro-Nazi journalist, in order to investigate the death of his good friend Connor, only for things to be complicated by a love triangle. So, is this a long lost treasure? Probably not, but as a rainy Sunday. »

The DC Cinematic Universe has faced an uphill battle against critics, who have either compared them to Marvel or have claimed they ‘don’t know what they’re doing’. But someone who reckons the studio has their finger on the pulse is Superman himself, Henry Cavill.
“There’s a big plan in place at WB for the whole DC franchise,” the actor told Uproxx while promoting The Man From U.N.C.L.E. “So, all of this stuff ties in. They’re not thinking from movie to movie, they’re thinking from a big tent pole type thing and each story has its own story, which is attached to the major issue. Yeah, there’s a big plan.”

Another rumour has come from the world of Heroic Hollywood this evening as the former El Mayimbe is reporting that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will feature a one-on-one showdown between Wonder Woman and Doomsday.
“During the fight with Doomsday, Wonder Woman draws that awesome sword of hers, swings it at Doomsday and manages to chop off the hand of the beast! Kind of reminds me when I was a kid and saw Perseus cut off Calibos’ hand in Clash of The Titans. Wonder Woman is badass and got skills but don’t count Doomsday out! He is still in the fight! Complications ensue because a Bone Blade grows back where Doomsday’s hand used to be! In screenwriting that’s called a reversal. Now Doomsday got a blade of his own.What happens next? Find out when Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice drops in theaters”
