More Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Details Revealed

31 July 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Empire’s cover story on next year’s superhero blockbuster Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was chock-full of new photos and information about what’s surely the most anticipated film of 2016 (all necessary apologies to Finding Dory fanatics), and thanks to Batman-News, we’ve now been able to sort through every sentence of that magazine’s story to pull out some very interesting tidbits.

It was already known that Wonder Woman was beginning to shoot this fall and that Justice League was set to begin filming next spring, but the story indicates that pre-production on the latter film is already well underway.

Additionally, the piece confirms Zack Snyder’s status as the linchpin in Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe. Along with his producer and wife Deborah Snyder and producer Charles Roven, Snyder is overseeing the entire cinematic universe and even has a whiteboard in his office with the whole Dceu sketched out. »

Snyder Talks Wider DC Cinematic Universe

29 July 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Continuing our look at Empire's feature story about Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" film, Snyder has also gone into more detail about the overall DC cinematic universe plans that Warner Bros. Pictures are beginning to play out - an initiative that really gets going with "Batman v Superman" and builds from there:

"What we are doing is ground up all the way. It is one giant story. The first thing we had was the Justice League concept. The other movies, in a way, have to support that. That is our Wonder Woman, our Aquaman. They have their own creative concepts that supports them, but they do serve Justice League in the coming together of those heroes.

I want all the other directors of the other films to be able to stretch their legs and do what they want, but at the same time there is a big interconnected universe. »

New Details On Batman v Superman's Dark Knight; He Put The Suicide Squad In Prison

29 July 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The latest edition of Empire Magazine includes tons of new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice details, with a particular focus on Ben Affleck's Batman. As has been the case ever since he was cast, much of that focus revolves around the fact that the Gone Girl star is playing an older Caped Crusader than we're used to seeing. "We are playing him 45 or 46," director Zack Snyder confirms. "He has been Batman for 20 years. All the history is there. Was there a Robin at one time? Possibly." This interview obviously took place before the trailer was released as producer Charles Roven also teased the fate of a certain Boy Wonder. "He has lost those near and dear to him, and not necessarily from old age of disease..." That could of course also refer to Batman's other allies, especially as Jim Gordon's fate in the DC Extended Universe isn't all »

'Wonder Woman' Gets Chris Pine as Boyfriend Steve Trevor

28 July 2015 7:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two months after Chris Pine entered talks to portray Steve Trevor in Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman, The Wrap reports that the actor has closed his deal for the coveted role. The deal reportedly includes options for multiple movies, so it's possible that he could also be popping up in Justice League Part 1, Justice League Part 2 or any of the other upcoming movies on Warner Bros.' DC Comics slate. The site also reveals that Steve Trevor will be "more than just a love interest" for Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, and there will be "plenty of action to keep him busy."

This deal also means that Chris Pine will not be playing Hal Jordan in another DC superhero movie, Green Lantern Corps. It was rumored that the Wonder Woman negotiations were a "smokescreen," and he was really in talks for Green Lantern Corps., but that proved to be untrue. »

'Batman v Superman' Introduces Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves

28 July 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though it has been rumored for quite sometime, today we get official confirmation from DC All Access that actress Tao Okamoto is playing Mercy Graves in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The character was originally created for Superman: The Animated series back in 1996. And this is the first time she has been seen on the big screen. Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad has similar origins. Instead of springing forth from a comic book, she was created for the Batman animated series back in 1992.

Tao Okamoto was personally selected by director Zack Snyder for the role after her appearance in The Wolverine. The character can be seen in the second Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer as she leads the dead body of super villain Zod through Lex Corp Industries, a hold over from Man of Steel. Early in the production process, Warner Bros. claimed that »

'Batman v Superman' Photos Show Off Lex Corp Industries

28 July 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As production began to heat up on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice two years ago, we got various reports on what type of villain Jesse Eisenberg is playing in bringing Lex Luthor to the screen. Rumors claimed that he was from new money, comparing him to Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network. One of the constant teases was that this Lex had his own baseball court inside Lex Corp Industries. New photos prove that true. The second trailer that debuted at Comic-Con showed Lex walking across the bullet littered floor of his destroyed offices, passing deflated basketballs. Now we see Lex standing proudly on this court, in front of his glorious neon sign, before any damage is done. It hints at a much more youthful Lex. A brat. Someone who is possibly quite immature.

That's not the only new photo we get from Empire, who are running a feature »

15 July 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With several of the big trailers shown at the San Diego Comic-Con leaking over the past few days, it was starting to look like Legendary had managed to keep its upcoming fantasy epic Warcraft under wraps. Alas, it wasn’t to be, as the footage has now arrived online – albeit in awful quality. Watch it here, but move fast, as it probably won’t stay online for long…

First Footage Of Warcraft Video Game Adaptation Leaks Online

15 July 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For the second consecutive year, director Duncan Jones brought a sizzle reel for his upcoming Warcraft to San Diego Comic-Con, and for the second consecutive year, said footage remained locked behind closed doors. However, in keeping with this year’s trend of leaked trailers, a bootleg version of the clip from this year’s show has appeared online, showcasing the director’s mystical, expansive take on Azeroth.

As one would expect, it’s shot from an obscure angle, and while it isn’t a fair indication of the final product – visually or aurally – the video above does at least illustrate some of the special effects that we can expect from Legendary’s blockbuster.

Paramount Pulls 'Triple Frontier' Out of Limbo, J.C. Chandor May Direct

29 June 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Once in the hands of Kathryn Bigelow, who with screenwriting partner Mark Boal has moved onto other projects, Paramount's "Triple Frontier" may finally see the light under director J.C. Chandor.  According to Deadline, Chandor is in early talks to helm this thriller set at the titular organized crime crossroads of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil. Rumors, however, have been flying since the project surfaced at Paramount in 2010, when Bigelow and Boal were fielding actors including Tom Hanks and Will Smith to fill the film's five leading roles. But Bigelow and Boal first pushed "Triple Frontier" aside for "Zero Dark Thirty" and now their upcoming drama about controversial rescued Pow Bowe Bergdahl; Hanks and Smith, however, may be staying on. Boal, who wrote the script, and Bigelow remain executive producers on "Triple Frontier," with Charles Roven and Alex Gartner producing for Atlas Media. Variety notes that, while the deal remains open, »

J.C. Chandor in Talks to Direct Paramount Thriller ‘Triple Frontier’

29 June 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After years of development limbo, Paramount’s action thriller “Triple Frontier” may have found new life.

Sources close to the project say “A Most Violent Year” helmer J.C. Chandor is in early talks to direct the pic that once had Kathryn Bigelow attached to helm.

The film is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge — making “la triple frontera” difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime.

Mark Boal and Bigelow serve as exec producers, with Charles Roven and Alex Gartner producing for Atlas Media.

The deal is not yet closed but if Chandor boards the project, the aim is for production to commence in January. A star has yet to be set for the film, but insiders say Will Smith has been eyeing the project for some time.

Though sources close to the studio and Smith say the actor is not attached, »

J.C. Chandor Circling Former Kathryn Bigelow Drama Triple Frontier

29 June 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A long-developing project may be undergoing an interesting director shift. After Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win the Best Director Oscar for The Hurt Locker, she was understandably in demand for a number of follow-up projects. She and Hurt Locker screenwriter Mark Boal zeroed in on a crime drama called Triple Frontier. Set in a border zone of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil known as “la triple frontera,” the movie would revolve around this haven for organized crime. A number of actors expressed interest in starring, from Johnny Depp to Tom Hanks to Will Smith, but the project was put on the backburner when Zero Dark Thirty gained steam. Our last update on the film came in 2012, when details surfaced that while Smith was interested in starring in the movie, Bigelow was uninterested in casting him. Moreover, Paramount Pictures reportedly balked at the $80 million budget. Bigelow and Boal have »
