Jonathan Nolan denies working on DC Comics cinematic universe movies

8 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Despite his role in setting up the first film in DC Comics' cinematic universe, Christopher Nolan won't be contributing to any further movies at this stage.

Nolan served as producer on Zack Snyder's Man of Steel but his screenwriter brother Jonathan, who worked on The Dark Knight series, told neither of them will play a role in the long list of films lined up by Warner Bros.

The pair were instrumental in bringing back a darker Batman in The Dark Knight series and despite Ben Affleck taking over the role from Christian Bale, rumours continue that the film-making brothers will play a role in setting up Batman as a founder of the Justice League.

"I love those guys and my brother was involved in Man of Steel with Zack [Snyder] and David [Goyer]. [But] I kind of feel like that chapter for us is closed."

But he hasn't ruled »

Eisenberg's Lex Luthor In "Suicide Squad"?

10 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures is reportedly in discussions with Jesse Eisenberg to reprise his Lex Luthor character in David Ayer's upcoming "Suicide Squad" film.

Eisenberg plays the villain in Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" and his inclusion in 'Squad' would give the film an obvious link back to the greater DC Cinematic Universe which the film doesn't really appear to have on the surface.

There's a problem though, Eisenberg is being lined up to star in the Todd Phillips-directed "Arms And The Dudes" and it's unlikely he'll be able to do both. He's also committed to a certain "Now You See Me" sequel and a potential "Zombieland" sequel which is moving forward again.

The likes of Will Smith and Tom Hardy are the being sought to star in "Suicide Squad" which Charles Roven is producing.

Jesse Eisenberg to bring Lex Luther role in DC Comics' Suicide Squad?

11 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jesse Eisenberg has been attached to the DC Comics movie Suicide Squad.

Warner Bros is talking with the actor to bring his Lex Luther character, who he will debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, to the new DC Comics movie Suicide Squad, reports Deadline.

Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad follows supervillains who were organised by the Us government to work together as a black ops team in exchange for redemption.

Earlier this month, it was reported that Will Smith, Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy and Margot Robbie are also being sought to star in the movie.

Suicide Squad is planned for a 2016 release, according to Warner's DC film schedule, which includes a Justice League movie and a solo Wonder Woman film slated for 2017.

On Friday (October 24), Warner and DC are said to be searching for a female director to helm the solo Wonder Woman movie with Gal Gadot playing the title role, »

Will Dawn of Justice Focus Mostly on Batman and Snub Superman?

21 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »


Will the Dark Knight cast a big shadow over the Man of Steel in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Insiders say that DC/Warner Bros. is planning to put the spotlight firmly on their box-office champ, the Caped Crusader of Gotham, rather than on the man from Metropolis.

 Superman may become a super sidekick in the upcoming Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice. According to the site, insiders say that the film will be very “Bat-heavy”, and Superman will be shoved down to the second rung of the ladder.

DC has a lot of faith in Batman, since he’s been their most successful franchise player, going all the way back to Tim Burtons’s hit films starring Michael Keaton.  The Nolan trilogy was a gold mine for Warner Bros. in recent years. However, they don’t have the same faith in the man from Krypton, »

Batman V Superman: Jena Malone Doesn't Deny That 'Robin' Rumor

24 October 2014 7:06 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Okay so this is pretty much some non-news, but what else would you be doing on a Friday night if not speculating on an outlandish casting rumor? Nobody really believed that Jena Malone was actually cast in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice when she was spotted on set, and when a new hair color gave way to the female Robin talk most of us thought the suggestion was outright laughable. Then, lo and behold THR reported that she would indeed play a role in the film, and then a Detroit news station claimed to have the Robin stuff confirmed by an extra on the set. Nothing has been made official yet of course, but UK E Online's Marc Malkin caught up with the Sucker Punch actress last night at a book launch party and asked her about it outright. "So, are you the new Robin?" I asked. »

Lex Luthor Probably Won't Be In Just Batman V Superman

24 October 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When the Spider-Man universe flirted with the idea of a villainous team named the Sinister Six, the movie drew on enemies introduced in the movies. (Electro, the Green Goblin and the Rhino were the core examples.) With DC eyeing a similar Suicide Squad film, you would think it would follow suit. only, General Zod.s "unavailable" (read: dead) and there haven.t been any other major villains in this DC cinematic universe. Except one. And he might increase his role in a major way. Jesse Eisenberg is about to introduce the classic villain Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder.s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Lex.s presence was hinted at in Man of Steel, but the character is stepping into the foreground for the battle between the Dark Knight and the Blue Boy Scout. But Deadline now reports that Eisenberg is "in discussions" with Warner Bros. to continue then »

24 October 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Warner Bros. is looking for a real-life superheroine to bring "Wonder Woman" to the bigscreen.  The studio is reportedly searching for a female director to helm the iconic DC Comics character's first solo film in 2017, after Gal Gadot first appears as the Amazonian warrior in 2016's "Batman V Superman." In a rundown of the upcoming deluge of superhero films from both Marvel and DC (nearly thirty over the next 6 years), The Hollywood Reporter noted that "Warners... is opting for strong directors, tapping David Ayer ('Fury') for 'Suicide Squad' and seeking a female helmer for Gal Gadot's 'Wonder Woman.'" Although there have been no official news reports, numerous rumors floating around the Internet point to the possibility of Kathryn Bigelow ("Hurt Locker"), Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilght"), and Michelle MacLaren ("Breaking Bad"), among other notable names.

'Wonder Woman' Movie Is Searching for a Female Director

24 October 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There has been much made about the lack of female-led superhero movies in the past couple of months, with DC Comics taking a giant leap forward by announcing a standalone Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot. A new report indicates that Warner Bros. is set on hiring a female director to take on the project. But who will it be?

Zack Snyder will have the first crack at shaping and defining this big screen incarnation of Wonder Woman, a character that will debut in his upcoming superhero ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Its believed that the character will be loosely based on the New 52 version, with the Amazonian princess a goddess fathered by demigod Zeus. While Justice League Part 1 is also being released in 2017, its unclear which project will hit screens first that year.

Its no secret that female directors are in short supply. Kathryn Bigelow seems like an obvious first choice, »

Wonder Woman movie: 5 female directors who could take up the mantle

24 October 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We'll admit it – the prospect of Zack Snyder being the first director to bring a live-action Wonder Woman to the big screen does not necessarily fill us with confidence, given his track record with "empowering" female narratives like Sucker Punch. Heavy emphasis on those air quotes.

But this morning came news that Warner Bros and DC are on the hunt for a female director to spearhead Gal Gadot's standalone spinoff in 2017, which would unfortunately be a groundbreaking move in itself for the superhero movie industry.

While it's undeniably early days (we're a fair way off from even having a writer confirmed), speculation is fun, so below Digital Spy rounds up five potential contenders for the Wonder Woman job.

1. Kathryn Bigelow

While she's now best known for her rigorous and critically acclaimed work on war dramas The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow cut her teeth on genre movies. »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer arriving before the end of the year?

24 October 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact that the film itself is still some fifteen months away from release, Dark Knight fan site Batman-on-Film is reporting that the first ‘Batman heavy’ teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is ready to go, and that we’ll be seeing it before the curtain falls on 2014…

According to the site: “The first teaser trailer for the film is complete and ready to go. The overt hint I got from these folks is that the teaser will be revealed this Fall along with a November or December film release (and online, of course). I have no idea to which specific film it may be “attached,” but New Line’s (which is Warner Bros.’ sister company) The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is being released on December 17, 2014. By the way Batman fans, I’ve heard that this teaser is ‘Batman heavy.'”

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice teaser trailer news

23 October 2014 11:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Zack Snyder nears the end of the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice shoot, news lands that the trailer might be closer than thought.

In a week where one teaser trailer has already proven itself rather popular (you can probably guess which one), we now learn that the first teaser for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice will be with us this side of Christmas. That's a surprise: given that the film isn't due in cinemas until March 2016, we weren't expecting footage to be released for some time yet. However, Batman On Film is reporting that the first teaser trailer is "complete and ready to go".

Furthermore, the site reports that "the teaser will be revealed this fall along with a November or December film release". If that's the case, then the biggest Warner Bros title between now and Christmas is The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies. »

Is the 'Batman v Superman' Trailer Ready and Coming Soon?

23 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is showing no signs of slowing down, with recent reports surfacing that the crew is building a massive set in New Mexico, with shooting also slated to begin in Chicago next month. While it remains unclear when principal photography will actually be complete, a new report from Batman-on-Film claims that Warner Bros. already has a teaser trailer "ready to go."

The site's sources claim that the teaser will be attached to one of Warner Bros.' November or December releases, which could be one of four possibilities: Horrible Bosses 2 (November 26), Inherent Vice (December 12), The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies (December 17) or American Sniper (December 25, in limited release). While none of these are superhero titles, if word got out that the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was attached to any one of these films, it would »

Batman v Superman Teaser Trailer Is Supposedly Ready; Focuses On Batman

23 October 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to sources for Batman-On-Film the first teaser trailer for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been completed and could be attached to a film coming out this Fall.  Which film that will be, is unclear at this time. The one thing that was made clear, was that the trailer would focus on the Caped Crusader and not the red and blue boy scout. This will surely disappoint Henry Cavill ("The Count of Monte Cristo") fans - if true. While on the other side of the fence, this will surely make Ben Affleck ("Pearl Harbor") fans very happy. Yahoo! According to a few of Bof’s BvS insiders, the first teaser trailer for the film is complete and ready to go. The overt hint I got from these folks is that the teaser will be revealed this Fall along with a November or December film release (and online, »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Trailer – 40 New Images You Need To See

23 October 2014 4:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


It’s finally here, even a week early ‘thanks’ to a leak of the trailer that forced Marvel to drop the official – and fancy HD – version for all of us to drink up.

The very idea of doing ‘another’ Avengers movie after just how immaculate and well-received the first one was, is a tall-order the likes of which we’re currently seeing with Zack Snyder’s take on melding Batman and Superman. But the project is in the best of hands here, as director Joss Whedon was the guy who ushered in the direction Marvel has been heading in – their lighter tone and mainstream audience-pleasing spectacles making every subsequent film into a gigantic public event.

So let’s confess; we didn’t think he’d actually be able to top The Avengers – and even though all we’ve got so far is a teaser trailer, it’s safe to »

22 October 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last week, a local Detroit news station spilled some significant details about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" that set the rumor mill aflame.

The source, an extra on the film who risks a $5M lawsuit over breaching his/her Nda, disclosed that Jena Malone is playing Robin, who's also known as Carrie Kelley in Frank Miller's comic series "The Dark Knight Returns." Whether or not that's true, Malone has been spotted on the set and also recently posted a self-portrait of herself to Instagram with flaming red hair. (For more spoilery details, check out this report from The Wrap.)

According to The Hollywood Reporter, several of its sources have confirmed that Malone is attached to the film, although the role is still a mystery. Mmm, yeah, a mystery. A $5 million mystery!

Ray Fisher didn't know he was to get standalone Cyborg film

21 October 2014 10:50 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ray Fisher will be playing Cyborg in Batman V Superman and two Justice League movies. The standalone film? It was a surprise to him...

Amidst the raft of DC Comics' based movies that Warner Bros announced last week was one that not too many people were expecting: a solo Cyborg film. As part and parcel of the announcement, Warner Bros revealed that Ray Fisher was taking on the role, and that the standalone Cyborg project is due in cinemas in 2020.

The second part of that sentence? It was news to Ray Fisher.

Fisher has done some work on Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and he's also confirmed that he'll appear in both Justice League: Part One and Justice League: Part Two.

Chatting to Entertainment Weekly, however, Fisher admitted that "I didn't know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking »

The Conjuring Director James Wan To Helm A DC Comics Movie?

21 October 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier today, it was announced that The Conjuring director James Wan had officially signed on for the horror film’s sequel, which was recently delayed and is now slated for release in 2016. However, buried in that news story was a little hint pointing toward another project on Wan’s slate: A DC Comics film.

Wan’s Conjuring 2 directing gig comes with a nice producing deal at New Line Cinema, but Warner Brothers is interested in keeping him behind the camera for as long as possible. They see him as “an emerging major filmmaker” and they hope he will grow in that capacity on their lot. So, what better way to keep Wan around for a bit longer than hand him the reins to one of the recently-announced high profile comic book films slated for release between 2016 and 2020?

The director will reportedly “make an important movie for New Line and Warner Bros or DC. »
