Okay. So we know that DC and Warner Bros. would really like to play some catchup with Marvel and Disney. Man of Steel didn’t do especially well, so they’re moving full steam ahead into the Avengers-esque territory of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, which will be shot back-to-back by Zack Snyder. But wouldn’t it be nice if they put some solo movies in there too? There were some rumors last month about a potentially leaked Warner Bros. schedule for Comic-Con this week that included a Wonder Woman movie, a Sandman movie and a Shazam movie. And it’s the latter film that Dwayne Johnson seems to be hinting at. Hit the jump for more on a possible Shazam movie starring Dwayne Johnson. Johnson told Total Film: “There’s a character out there that we’re going to announce very soon that I’m going to play. »

During the Summer 2014 TCA Press Tour, the various DC Entertainment television shows, Arrow, Flash, Gotham and Constantine, have all been questioned by the media about whether the shows will connect or hint at the events of Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman, similar to how ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. connects to the Marvel Cinematic Univserse. The answer to that question is no, Johns and the various showrunners have stated that they view the DC TV shows as seperate continuity from the film universe currently being established by Zack Snyder and co. Ok. So what about establishing a tv universe, across the various networks, that's seperate from the film universe? Said Arrow Ep Marc Guggenheim on the chances of The CW's Arrow connecting to NBC's Constantine, "When we do our Easter eggs, they’re never in conjunction with other DC Easter eggs" said the writer and showrunner, going on to »

Sneak Peek super-dog 'Krypto' coming to the rescue of 'Batman', 'Superman' and 'Wonder Woman' on the cover of DC Comics' "Batman Superman" #11.
'The Legion of Super-Pets' appear in the "DC Nation Superman 75th Anniversary" short, included in the "Man of Steel" DVD release.
Although animal members of "The Legion Of Super-Pets" had appeared in various comic books throughout the years, with super-dog 'Krypto' debuting in 1955, the super-animals made their official team debut in DC's "Adventure Comics" #293 (February 1962).
The team roster included 'Comet' the 'Super-Horse', 'Streaky' the 'Super-Cat', 'Krypto' the 'Super-Dog', 'Beppo' the 'Super-Monkey' from 'Krypton' and shape-changer 'Proty II'.
Significant appearances include issue #322 (July 1964) when 'Proty II' is initiated into the team and issue #343 (April 1966), with the 'Super-Pets' helping the 'Legion of Super-Heroes' battle the 'Luck Lords'. »

Legendary comic book writer Alan Moore (Watchmen, From Hell, V for Vendetta) has never been shy about his utter disdain for movie adaptations of his work. He preemptively disowns any film version of his books, even famously removing his name from Zack Snyder’s Watchmen movie and publicly denouncing DC’s Before Watchmen prequel series.
Having once stated that his experience with DC on Watchmen was “a toxic cloud of memories,” it goes without saying that fans of Moore shouldn’t expect to see his name anywhere near the big screen, presumably ever. Recently, however, Moore has gone on the record in defense of the late comic book writer Steve Moore (no relation), Moore’s friend for forty years, whose Radical Comics series Hercules: The Thracian Wars is hitting ...

Geoff Johns, who wrote the The Flash pilot for The CW, as well as produces the series, is also an executive producer on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Speaking at the TCA panel for the upcoming DC Comics series, he clarified the differences between the DC Cinematic Universe and its small screen companion, confirming that the two streams will never cross. This also means that we'll never even see small screen versions of Batman or Superman on either The CW series Arrow or The Flash.
The comic book writer explained that there has never been a plan to incorporate the two different universes into one entity, and that the small screen actors who portray Arrow and The Flash, Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin, won't be squeezing their way into Justice League either.
""You'll see a lot of DC universe characters [on The The Flash and Arrow]. You won't see Batman or Superman. We're on production on Batman v Superman now. »
With filming on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice heading to Corktown, Detroit in a couple of weeks, the website TheBananaDoc has posted a few images from the set, showing construction of a devastated section of Gotham or Metropolis. There’s nothing too exciting, but hopefully we’ll get to see the cast out in the open once filming on the set gets underway…
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on May 6th 2016, with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons (The Borgias) as Alfred Pennyworth and Holly Hunter »

With actress Gal Gadot currently co-starring in director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" as DC Comics' 'Diana Prince' aka 'Wonder Woman', take another look @ the origins of the iconic female superhero character, plus enjoy footage of Gadot in a series of revealing commercials:
The original 'Wonder Woman' was created by William Moulton Marston, (aka 'Charles Moulton') who saw the educational potential of comic books and in 1941 was hired as a consultant @ "National Periodicals/All-Winner Comics" (DC Comics).
Marston created his female superhero, in a field dominated by male characters, inspired by his mistress Olive Byrne, who lived with him and his wife in a 'polygamous, polyamorous' relationship.
Having 2 children with both women, Marston said that his women served as independent exemplars for his 'Wonder Woman', whose comic book adventures would be illustrated by 'Harry Peter'. »

Thanks to the The Bananadoctor, we have some new Corktown set photos and information for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Over the past few weeks, we've seen many images of this sets construction. Most of the focus were on the large cross-shaped structures which we can now clearly identify as broken steel beams. "Similarly the large pieces of styrofoam are in the process of being painted gray to look like large pieces of concrete, torn up pavement, and other disaster-debris. The wood structures that look kind of like construction-roofing seem to be the framework for the concrete slabs, so the scene will look like there’s been pretty major upheaval." - The Bananadoctor Click Here - More Batman V Superman Set Photos “It is very exciting to get calls from movie production companies that are interested in using our products on the big screen,” said Rob »

Two years after remaking Romero’s socially aware Dawn of the Dead, director Zack Snyder jumped aboard 300, the action porn realization of Frank Miller’s graphic novel. Sin City had just come out and Miller was in. The movie would go on to cash in big, while making an international star out of Gerard Butler, Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey, and, yes, even young Magneto himself, Michael Fassbender. Snyder also legitimized himself as an A-Lister and went on to direct Alan Moore’s mesmerizing epic Watchmen and franchise reboot Man of Steel, with the Justice League movie on deck. Fast-forward to 2014, and Warner Brothers tried to catch lightning in a bottle again, returning to the shores of Greece, this time with an Athenian navy taking on the Persians and a more recognizable cast. The ride is worth the wait, thanks to two words: Eva Green.

This fan-made poster for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes from Sysmatic on tumblr, and it features our two heroes coming face to face in the dark, rainy city of Gotham. I really want this movie that Zack Snyder is making to be great. I definitely have my doubts, but hopefully he will surprise fans with some footage at Comic-Con next week to show us what he's doing with it.

There.s a very good chance that, by the end of next week, we will have a legitimate Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer to share with you guys. Warner Bros. is hosting a massive panel from the stage in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, and while Zack Snyder.s title isn.t officially on the roster, you know there.s no way possible the studio can let a Hall H presentation float by without bringing something from one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the near future. Until then, we stumbled on this totally fake, but still chill-inducing fan-made trailer, to get you even more amped up for the possibility of next week.s reveal. The YouTube user BvS Teaser cobbled this together, cleverly using General Zod.s pirate-radio telecast from Man of Steel to suggest how Ben Affleck.s caped crusader might be brought into the »

Last week Warner Bros. announced its line-up for the San Diego Comic-Con International, with the eagerly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice absent from a schedule that includes the likes of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, Jupiter Ascending, Into the Storm and Godzilla. Of course, there’s every chance that WB could be keeping its big superhero offering as a surprise, but now stills photographer Clay Enos has indicated that we might have to wait until 2015 before we get to see something from the DC ensemble.
A few days back, Enos teased a “historic” photoshoot on Twitter, with speculation suggesting that WB could be preparing a promotional photo of the Trinity – Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) – to debut at Sdcc. However, Enos has now stated that we should expect WB to hold things back until next year’s Comic-Con:

An instagram user by the name of @upcomingdccu had a small interaction with Clay Enos, the set still photographer on 'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice', where Enos spoke about what Not to expect at Comic-Con 2014 and when fans will be able to see the picture he had infamously teased on twitter (shown below). Enos has previously worked alongside Zack Snyder in 'Watchmen' (2009) and 'Man Of Steel' (2013). Clay Enos said, "I shoot them easily enough but many talented hands have a say in what is released and when. Nothing happens quickly." When asked about how it feels to be part of a film that is so highly anticipated Enos said, "You don't need to tell me that, I can't say anything without some speculative article being written. »
Further to the sequel "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" reportedly filming a memorial ceremony in the city of 'Metropolis', paying tribute to the thousands who died during the alien battles in director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel", take another look @ 'destruction' footage, highlighting the SFX carnage from that first film:
"...in the pantheon of superheroes, 'Superman' is the most recognized and revered character of all time. 'Clark Kent'/'Kal-El' (Henry Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination.
"Transported to Earth years ago from 'Krypton', an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question...Why am I here?
"Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents 'Martha' and 'Jonathan Kent', Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions.
"But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be »

As the supplements suggest, 300: Rise of an Empire is not a straight sequel to Frank Miller and Zack Snyder’s 300, as it can also be described as a prequel, sidequel, and probably some other words that have been invented to describe modern spin-off films that don’t pick up after the last film ended. Rise of an Empire is meant to be like a glove to the first film, as it surrounds the original narrative with new material. The results are a film that doesn’t totally work on its own terms, but does offer a delicious scene-stealing performance from Eva Green. My 300: Rise of an Empire Blu-ray review follows after the jump. Told in parallel (somewhat) while the Spartans battle elsewhere, the film shows how the Persian leader Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) became the golden god he was, and that it was because new character Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) killed his father, »

With Zack Snyder currently rebooting The Dark Knight as part of Warner Bros.’ big DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Yahoo! Movies caught up with Gary Oldman during a promotional interview for his new film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, during which they managed to get a few comments from The Dark Knight Trilogy star about his thoughts on the latest incarnation of Batman, and it appears he’s quite skeptical of it:
“They want to keep it going. Of course they do. But, it’s Superman yeah? Batman and Superman together? We shall see. The thing about Christopher Nolan, there was some grounding of reality to it. In our trilogy, and as fantastical and as big as The Joker was, it was based [on reality]. We could relate to it. But now we’ve got Batman and we’ve got a guy who can fly who’s an alien? »
