New Release Date Announced for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Nine Dates Set for Untitled DC Movies

6 August 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With this past weekend seeing another movie added to the Marvel films family in Guardians of the Galaxy, Warner Bros. is setting their sights on a similarly structured future with the unveiling of nine release dates for untitled DC films through 2020, while also revealing that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be moved from its May 6th, 2016 slot to an earlier spot on that year’s calendar.

Collider reports that Warner Bros. has moved the release of DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from May 6th, 2016 to March 25th, 2016, taking the film out of summer blockbuster territory. Some speculate that Warner Bros. pushed forward the Batman/Superman mash-up to avoid competing directly with Marvel’s Captain America 3, which is expected to hit theaters in May of 2016. Warner Bros.Gerard Butler-starring Geostorm has been removed from the March 25th, 2016 slot and will receive a new debut date. »

'Uncharted' Takes Old 'Amazing Spider-Man 3' Release Date

23 July 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After Sony Pictures announced earlier today that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was being pushed to 2018, the studio gave Uncharted the superhero sequel's old release date on June 10, 2016. Uncharted currently has the date to itself, falling between another Sony project, the animated comedy Sausage Party on June 3 and Disney-Pixar's Finding Dory on June 17.

Here's what Sony Pictures President Doug Belgrad had to say about Uncharted's new release date.

"June 10 is a great date for Uncharted. It's just the right place for this exciting action-adventure film."

Director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) revealed last week that production on Uncharted will begin in early 2015. This action-adventure is based on the successful video game series that follows the adventures of treasure hunter Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, who goes on a quest to find the lost city of El Dorado. Mark Wahlberg was once attached to play Drake, but he is no longer involved. »

Sony Pushes Back ‘Spider-Man 3′ to 2018, Dates ‘Sinister Six’ for 2016

23 July 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Looking to broaden its Spider-Man franchise, Sony has dated spin-off “Sinister Six” for Nov. 11, 2016 as the next tentpole in its key property — while moving back “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ two years to 2018.

Sony did not set a specific 2018 date for “The Amazing Spider-Man 3.” It had originally dated “The Amazing Spider-Man 4″ for May 4, 2018, but that’s no longer the plan.

After modest box office results for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the studio thinks “Sinister Six” will expand the Spider-Man universe by bringing in villains, making Sony a stronger competitor against the likes of Disney/Marvel’s “Avengers” and WB’s Justice League superheroes in the coming years.

The studio has also slated “Uncharted” for June 10, 2016 — which had previously been the release schedule previously held by “The Amazing Spider-Man 3.”

Sony made the announcements Wednesday on the opening day of Comic-Con. The studio first revealed the “Sinister Six” and “Venom” spinoff projects in December, »

Kevin Smith Denies Writing Fake 'Batman v Superman' Script

8 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that director Kevin Smith was responsible for floating a fake Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice script, which he wrote himself, to various movie news outlets and bloggers. This had supposidley created a storm of fake rumors circulating on the Internet, heavily reported on by Latino Review and Badass Digest. While Kevin Smith stayed quiet about the rumor throughout the weekend, he has now come forward to finally answer the question.

No. He didn't write a fake Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice screenplay.

No, I didn't write a fake Batman v Superman script. But I Have kept busy regardless... http://t.co/dPdZtLTzie Thanks for saying #WalrusYes !

Did Kevin Smith write the “fake” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice script leaked online?

5 July 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems like a never-ending war for “scoops” and speculation between Star Wars: Episode VII and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Earlier this week rumours of plot details and multi-villain appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were reported by Latino Review, based on a script that was leaked. Since those reports, it has been claimed that the script was a fake and leaked on purpose to throw “scoop” sites off the real scent of what the movie is about.

Well, now Movieweb are claiming that their sources have told them that the leaked script was written by Clerks director Kevin Smith.

Here’s what the report says:

“Up until last year I worked for as a Pa for a Warner Bros. exec until I was promoted to marketing. It was here I and several others where approached to work, directly and indirectly, for Susanne Knoll and sometimes Deborah Snyder. »

May as Well Stop Paying Attention to 'Batman v. Superman' Rumors

5 July 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last week a rumor started floating around about several new villains added to Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but now it sounds like everything you hear about the film moving forward may be false. Word is Warner Bros. hired Kevin Smith, whose been revealing plenty of little nuggets of information concerning WB's future with DC Comics, to write a fake script for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel and leak it to movie news blogs such as Latino Review and Badass Digest. While this isn't confirmed, it doesn't sound in the least bit unlikely, as MovieWeb received an email with the following info: Late last year both producer Charles Roven and Zack Snyder approached Kevin Smith with a early treatment for the film and It was Kevin Smith who came up with the idea to write an entire screenplay based on it but with several huge »

Did Warner Bros. Hire Kevin Smith To Write And Leak A Fake Script For Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice?

5 July 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Okay guys, grab your salt shakers, because we’ve got another big rumor for you. According to MovieWeb, one of their sources “deep within the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice production” has informed them that Warner Bros. hired writer/director/Batman fan extraordinaire Kevin Smith to write and leak a fake script for Batman V Superman. Apparently this was done to throw people off of the scent of the real script and away from the things Zack Snyder is actually trying to accomplish.

The fake script is supposedly the one Latino Review got a hold of and was the basis for their report about four additional villains joining the film. Honestly, I don’t know how I feel about this news, and I’m a bit skeptical about how true it is. But MovieWeb seems pretty confident about it, and shared their source’s letter explaining the details:

Kevin Smith Wrote Fake Batman v Superman Script and Then Leaked It Online?

5 July 2014 4:28 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

There are constant "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" rumors floating around the internet, with most of them being circulated by sites like Latino-Review and AICN. Now comes word that Warner Bros is the one behind these rumors as a way to spread misinformation. Movieweb recently reached out to its Warner Bros contact, who works in the marketing department. This contact revealed that he came across a "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" script that was commissioned by the studio and producer Charles Roven. The script has little to do with the actual "Batman v Superman" plot, which is why the studio "leaked" it to several sites. Warner Bros accomplished this by asking its marketing people to pose as recently-fired production crew members when getting in touch with movie websites. So who wrote this script? Apparently director Zack Snyder has been working with Kevin Smith to put together something believable, »

Fake 'Batman v Superman' Script Written and Leaked by Kevin Smith?

3 July 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We just received an interesting tip from an anonymous source deep within the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice production. This comes just moments after we posted a story about the introduction of three new, lesser-known heroes in the movie. Badass Digest has gotten their hands on a pdf that claims to be the legitimate shooting script, and in it, there are a number of new secondary characters and locations. This came hot on the heels of Latino Review claiming four new villains were going to appear alongside Lex Luthor. Well, guess what? If we're to believe the email we just got our hands on, not only is the script fake...It was written by Kevin Smith!

Yes, that Kevin Smith. The director of Clerks and Red State. The guy who has been dropping Batman v Superman hints since the film was announced. The same guy who is best friends with Bruce Wayne himself, »

Live-Action Scooby Doo Reboot in the Works at Warner Bros.

18 June 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Just a decade after the release of Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, Warner Bros. are planning on rebooting the franchise with a new live-action movie. The original two were written by Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn and directed by Raja Gosnell (The Smurfs).

Both of the movies did well at the box office, but the sequel was not well-received by critics, and the iconic Hanna-Barbera has since been kept on the small screen and direct-to-dvd animated features.

According to Deadline, Charles Roven (who produced the first two movies which starred Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, and Linda Cardellini) will also be spearheading this new take, although he’s the only one currently attached to the reboot, so it’s obviously still at a very early stage.

How they will recreate Scooby Doo for a new audience remains to be seen. The last two movies had a »
