There were thousands of extras on the set of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! As you would expect, one of the extras spilled the beans regarding a private party scene that will take place in the film. According to the extra from the Michigan Film Office, that scene took three days to film, and over 1000 people! "I worked 15 hours a day, but I was so thrilled to be on the set, and surrounded by so many talented people, that the long hours did not affect me. Not only did I get to stand by Henry Cavill while he played Superman’s alter ego Clark Kent, I quite literally ran into Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne. As we were resetting a shot, I was walking back to my mark. Affleck came rushing round the corner. I had nowhere to go because there were lights in the way. »
Last we reported on Ben Affleck’s adaptation of Live By Night, it had slipped down the actor-director’s pecking order as he focused attention on donning the cape and cowl for Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. But with a November start date fast-approaching, Affleck is ready to assemble his cast and crew for the crime drama, itself an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s (Shutter Island) eponymous novel.
The latest star to enter talks to board the thriller is The Mindy Project and The Newsroom alum, Chris Messina, who could reunite with his Argo co-star should this deal pan out. Rather than a tense hostage situation, Live By Night would have Messina step into the role of Affleck’s literal partner in crime. Then again, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller and Zoe Saldana are all still circling the gestating project, which has suffered setbacks due to Affleck »

West. Kilmer. Keaton. Clooney. Bale. Affleck. Brosnan? Speaking in an interview with Details, former 007 Pierce Brosnan revealed that he was once offered the chance to play The Caped Crusader for Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman film.
At the time, Pierce Brosnan was one of a number of stars in line for the coveted part, rubbing shoulders with Mel Gibson – fresh off the Mad Max trilogy – Tom Selleck, Charlie Sheen, Kevin Costner and Bill Murray. Ultimately, though, it was a role that never really caught the actor’s attention, and here he reveals exactly why he passed up the chance.
“It was the beginning of these huge movies, and I just thought, Batman? Batman held such an indelible place in my own childhood, but I said something flippant to Tim Burton like, ‘Any guy who wears his underpants outside his trousers cannot be taken seriously.’ So, yeah.”
Low and behold, it was »

A few weeks ago came a report that Warners studio executives had screened Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" at least once and were ecstatic over the results. Den of Geek posted the report and were quickly knocked by various outlets who decried it... that was until Warners CEO Kevin Tsujihara confirmed a week later that it was essentially true.
Now, the site is back with a new report which deals with a rumor that cropped up over the weekend. That rumor? That "Mad Max: Fury Road" director George Miller was in talks to take on a direct "Man of Steel" sequel at Warner Bros. Pictures - a film that has Not as yet been announced as part of their slate for the DC Comics cinematic universe.
The new report seems to confirm that the studio is not moving fast on the project, in fact it is »

A new rumor recently popped up saying that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was in talks to take over the Man of Steel franchise from Zack Snyder. But considering the movie isn’t officially on Warner Bros. Pictures’ schedule for their DC Comics cinematic universe, it didn’t sound like it was an immediate concern […]

Question. When is a zombie movie not a zombie movie? The answer in this case is when the director says so, and Umberto Lenzo is a great pains to point out that Nightmare City is absolutely not a zombie movie, despite what his friend Quentin Tarrantino keeps insisting, and that it is instead a film about people infected by radiation.
I have to admit that having originally seen Nightmare City back in the 1980s, I have always had fond memories of it being a zombie movie, but watching it again it’s clear that it has far more in common with George A Romero’s The Crazies and particularly the most significant film that it has influenced in recent years, Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later, who Lenzi states in a fascinating thirty minute interview ‘copied him, but everybody knows that’.
In fact, the nature of Lenzi’s infected, in that »
Take another look @ the origins of DC Comics' 'Doomsday', on the news that the super-villain could appear in director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", during a climax against the film's 'trinity' of superheroes 'Batman', 'Superman' and 'Wonder Woman' :
Created by writer/illustrator Dan Jurgens, 'Doomsday' debuted in DC Comics' "Superman: The Man of Steel" #17 (November 1992)...
...followed by another appearance in "Superman: The Man of Steel" #18 (December 1992), portrayed as a deadly monster born from the depths of ancient 'Krypton'.
His creation imbued him with few feelings, mostly hate and destruction which led to his destroying worlds and eventually finding Earth where he meets Superman.

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 »

With the way a lot of fans are gushing over Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, it seems they’ve forgotten that Man Of Steel was something of a disappointment. Promoted as Superman’s Batman Begins, it was a movie with lush visuals, awesome action scenes, a cracking score, and a terrible story courtesy of regular comic book movie hack David S. Goyer.
While Batman v Superman has the advantage of having Argo’s Chris Terrio on writing duties, there’s nothing to say he’ll find success with a superhero project as plenty of writers and directors have crashed and burned when it came to moving into this genre (just look at what happened with Josh Trank). Zack Snyder meanwhile has a solid enough track record, but he too can be a little hit and miss.
Despite all of that, Batman v Superman is shaping up to be something great… »

Let's start by staying that this "news" comes firmly from the rumour mill, is confirmed by nobody, and may be based on a misunderstanding of the source. Nevertheless, you may find it hard to stifle a whistful "oooh" at the very notion that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller might be directing the sequel to Man Of Steel: Henry Cavill's second solo outing as Kal-El after the team-up / face-off antics of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.The rumour stems from Jon Schnepp, the director of this year's documentary The Death Of Superman Lives. Appearing on a DC focused episode of chatcast Popcorn Talk, he casually offered up the following (at about the 55-minute mark):"George Miller is doing Man of Steel 2. I don’t feel weird about breaking it. Obviously Zack Snyder is doing Justice League one and two, James Wan is doing Aquaman. »
“I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years to come…in your most private moments…I want you to remember…my hand…at your throat…I want…you to remember…the one man who beat you.”
That’s the quote from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns comic book series that was used to introduce the concept of Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice back in the summer of 2013. Specifically, the quote comes towards the end of the series, where a big bust-up between DC’s finest heroes comes to a head.
Snyder has cited the comic »
While Christopher Nolan’s gritty Dark Knight Trilogy is beloved, Tim Burton’s kooky Batman films have ardent fans and Joel Schumacher’s campy sequels… exist, a lot of Bat-fans claim that the all-time best version of the caped crusader on-screen is the animated series which ran from 1992 and on-off all the way until 1999.
Helmed to near-perfection by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, and sporting the acting talent of Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill as the Joker, Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn and many others besides, it expertly strode the line between winning the hearts of superhero-loving children and those of hardened adult comic book fans. It may have undergone a more kid-friendly redesign in its later seasons (being retitled The New Batman Adventures) but the quality generally held out.
And it, of course, began the run of numerous shows – such as the brilliant Batman Beyond – that »

Attention: we are in the midst of a nerdgasm. In news that's sure to thrill fans of the Superman movie franchise (and superhero movies in general), "Mad Max: Fury Road" director George Miller may be taking the helm of the next "Man of Steel" sequel. That's at least according to Jon Schnepp, director of the forthcoming documentary "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?", which focuses on the ill-fated Nicolas Cage/Tim Burton Superman film that died in development hell back in the 1990s. How does Schnepp know this? He doesn't say, so let's treat this as a rumor until we get more details. As Comicbook.com notes, Miller was previously attached to helm DC's first attempt at a "Justice League" movie several years ago, before "Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder took the helm. Watch the video below (h/t Popcorn Talk) for Schnepp's comments. »

While we've heard plenty of rumors that Ben Affleck is directing, co-writing and starring in an Untitled Batman Reboot trilogy, that will supposedly kick off before the end of this decade, we haven't heard anything about a second standalone Superman movie. That all changes today, though, in a big way. A new rumor has surfaced about Man of Steel 2. It looks like Warner Bros. has already decided on a director, and you're going to love the choice.
George Miller, who created the Mad Max franchise and returned to direct this past summer's well-received Mad Max: Fury Road is supposedly set to direct Man of Steel 2. The news broke on the latest episode of Popcorn Talk, and comes from a pretty reliable source. Director Jon Schnepp was promoting his documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? when he let it slip. He's had inside access to Warner Bros. »
Some fans have complained about the addition of long hair to the DC villain in a recent trailer, despite previous teaser images hinting at a traditionally-bald Luthor.

During an interview with IGN, Eisenberg was asked to respond to the backlash over his Batman v Superman character's luscious locks.
"People get upset because they feel a connection to it," he replied. "But the movie's great, so they'll be happy when they see it.
"I understand feeling ownership over something, but once they see the movie they'll see how great it is."

Zack Snyder.s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice isn.t just one movie. It is the springboard that is going to lead to several new movies. We know that Warner Bros. and DC plan to do a two-part Justice League movie in the wake of Snyder's DOJ (with the rumors being that Snyder would direct those, as well). And there has been talk that Ben Affleck could be locked up for a trilogy of Dark Knight films that would follow his first tussle with Superman. But what of the Blue Boy Scout, himself? When will he get another solo movie?
If Jon Schnepp is to be believed, it will happen soon. and it will be directed by Mad Max: Fury Road helmer George Miller! Schnepp appeared on the Popcorn Talk podcast and discussed, briefly, news that he has been told that Miller will direct Man of Steel 2 »
The speculation about the 70-year-old filmmaker being handed the keys to Henry Cavill's next solo Superman film began with Jon Schnepp, the director of documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?.
Some DC fans will remember that Miller was in 2007 attached to direct Justice League: Mortal, the shelved movie that would have starred DJ Cotrona as Superman, Armie Hammer as Batman and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman.
Justice League: Mortal was initially scrapped due to the 2007 Writers' Strike, »
