"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - More Leaked Images

15 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ leaked images from the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" (currently in post-production), revealing actor Scoot McNairy ("Halt and Catch Fire") as a popular character from the 'Superman' family:

"McNairy plays 'Daily Planet' investigative reporter 'Jimmy Olsen',  a friend of 'Superman’, who was present during the 'Black Zero' event in 'Man Of Steel' and lost his legs after they were pinned under falling building rubble. The 'green-screen' socks McNairy is seen wearing will be replaced, in post-production, by CG mechanical legs..."

"It’s definitely 100% a character I’ve never played and I can’t speak too freely on it," said McNairy. "But yeah, getting into that 'thing' was definitely something I had to wrap my head around emotionally, in order to play that character. 

"But with that being said, I had a lot of fun doing it »

The Week in Disappointment – Batman v Superman, Terminator, Watchmen TV Series, Nicolas Cage and The Lord of the Rings and more

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras with this week’s disappointments from the entertainment world…

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice rated PG-13 for ‘sensuality'”

Makes perfect sense. You could feel the pulsing sexual tension emanating from the screen when he ripped the top off of the Batmobile. Matt Damon knows what I’m taking about.

Matt Damon says ‘it must be really hard’ to be a gay actor”

It is. Real hard. And it only gets harder. Until eventually the gay actor has no choice but to sprinkle audiences with his white hot talent. Then it’s not so hard anymore.

“Nic Cage says he turned down the Aragorn role in The Lord of the Rings.”

I’m not sure who comes off looking worse in this story: Peter Jackson for offering the role or Nicolas Cage for turning it down. Speaking of things no one wants to see…

Vin Diesel was the lynchpin of ‘The Last Witch Hunter’ and is a ‘300’ sequel on the way?

2 October 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last November, deep beneath the frozen ground of Pennsylvania, I visited the set of “The Last Witch Hunter”. Producer Mark Canton sat down to talk about how the film came into being, the hopes for an expanded universe, and what makes Kaulder different from other heroes.  Unrelated, Canton also spoke about his hopes for teaming up with Zack Snyder again in the future.  How did you get involved in “The Last Witch Hunter?” Mark Canton: I worked on it for about four years. Breck [Eisner] was aboard early and then Bernie [Goldmann] he came [on]. Then we just kept hammering away at the screenplay and Breck created this incredible world, which was really difficult to do in light of the fact that there was no IP on this. Normally everyone would think [a story like “The Last Witch Hunter”] would come from a graphic novel, but in this case, the graphic novel’s gonna follow [the movie.] We had no Frank Miller to fall back on, »

HBO In Talks For A Watchmen Series

2 October 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We could be seeing a Watchmen Series in our future, courtesy of HBO!  Read on to find out why.

In 2009, DC Comics' Watchmen blew up in theatres.  Most thought it was an incredible achievement in superhero cinema.  Others thought it was a poor interpretation of the comics.  Then there were those who couldn't stop snickering at Dr. Manhatten's...nevermind.

Fast forward six years, HBO is in talks to bring back the Watchmen but now as a series.  In most cases, companies like HBO would refrain from discussing it.  HBO, however, being the standard decided to have a lengthy discussion about it.

"Preliminary discussions regarding Watchmen have occurred, but we have no additional information and no deals are in place."

If that doesn't say it's happening, I don't know what will.

Deadline first reported that Zack Snyder had initially pitched this to HBO.  However, with everything else he's doing with DC Comics, »

Kevin Feige responds to Spielberg's and Snyder's superhero comments

2 October 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Exactly one month ago, we reported that Steven Spielberg felt that superhero films would go the way of the Western, suggesting that they were just a passing genre. Fair enough, if only because superhero flicks are no more prevalent than they are today. Zack Snyder responded in kind by saying that Spielberg might not be wrong, but that Batman and Superman are transcendent of superhero movies and that... Read More »

"Watchmen" Superhero TV Series

2 October 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, director Zack Snyder's 2009 superhero feature "Watchmen", based on writer Alan Moore's limited comic book series, may be adapted as a live-action dramatic TV series @ HBO, the home of "Game Of Thrones":

With the release of the "Watchmen"  'Director's Cut' & an 'Ultimate Cut', the film has developed and maintained a strong fan base over the years.

"...The 'Minutemen', a team of costumed crime fighters, was formed in 1939 in response to a rise in costumed gangs and criminals. The 'Watchmen' was similarly formed decades later.

"Their existence has dramatically affected world events: in particular, the superpowers of 'Doctor Manhattan' helped the United States win the Vietnam War, resulting in 'President Richard Nixon' being reelected.

"Doctor Manhattan gives the West a strategic advantage over the Soviet Union, which by the 1980's threatens to escalate the 'Cold War' into a nuclear war.

Zack Snyder Is Seeing Batman V Superman For The First Time In IMAX This Weekend

2 October 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice may still be five months away, but from all the behind-the-scenes whisperings it’s sounding like the film is really coming together. A rough cut was screened to Warner Bros. executives (who applauded how much money they were going to make) and the film recently got it’s long-expected PG-13 rating. Now it appears the production is turning its eye to finding out the way to deliver the best cinema experience for fans.

At an IMAX With Laser event in London, it was revealed that Zack Snyder is going to be viewing the film’s IMAX effects for the first time in La this weekend. This, along the MPAA rating confirmation, suggests that we’re in the finishing touches stage of production

Several sequences of the film have been shot in the format, which is why Dawn Of Justice is being »

Watch: 14-Minute Video Essay Explores The Differences Between The Film And Graphic Novel Of 'V For Vendetta'

2 October 2015 8:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even though reclusive, hirsute author Alan Moore has been adamantly opposed to any mainstream re-thinking of his texts, he hasn't been opposed to selling the rights. Moore, a famous crank and brilliant graphic novelist, cited Stephen Norrington’s godawful “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” as the reason he would never lend his name to another Hollywood adaptation of one of his works, and it’s been something of a bumpy road since. He also decried the Hughes Brothers' gory adaptation of his Jack the Ripper comic, “From Hell,” although that film holds up better than it should when viewed today. As for “Watchmen,” it’s a text held in near-religious reverence by many fanboys, and Zack Snyder’s slavish devotion to the source material didn’t always work to the film’s benefit (though he'll get another crack in TV series form if his talks with HBO pan out).

Macbeth review: A ferocious Michael Fassbender dominates a breathtaking adaptation

2 October 2015 6:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Brutal. Ferocious. Intense. If you think those words apply to the latest technical challenge on Bake Off, then Justin Kurzel's visually stunning adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Scottish play' should set you straight. Spearheaded by Michael Fassbender's mesmerising lead performance, this tragic tale grips your senses from the beginning and never lets go.

Fassbender initially cuts a traumatised yet courageous figure, leading his men into bloody battle before encountering three witches armed with a prophecy. They tell him that he's destined to become the King of Scotland, an ambition later fuelled by the malevolent manipulations of his wife (Marion Cotillard). Deception, murder and madness ensue, amidst a gritty and breathtaking landscape that alternates texturally between fire and ice.

When such a familiar text (the scourge of many a Gcse English Lit student) is subject to yet another adaption, you have to question its purpose. What new elements can it bring? »

Zack Snyder May Make a 'Watchmen' TV Series for HBO

2 October 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After his big screen take on the graphic novels failed to become a franchise, director Zack Snyder may be bringing "Watchmen" to TV instead.

According to Collider, Snyder has been meeting with HBO to discuss potential for a "Watchmen" series. The site says it's unclear whether or not this new series would be a reboot of the film, a prequel, or a sequel, though the DC Comics property is certainly intricate enough to warrant multiple angles of exploration.

HBO later confirmed these talks with Snyder, providing the following statement to Collider:

Preliminary discussions regarding Watchmen have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place.

So obviously, it's not a done deal yet, though that still doesn't stop the possibility from being an intriguing one. As Collider points out, the 2009 feature film wasn't a huge hit with critics or moviegoers, but that's mainly been blamed on »

Watchmen: HBO considering TV show

2 October 2015 12:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

HBO has met with Zack Snyder about the possibility of bringing Alan Moore's Watchmen comic to the small screen...

Here’s an exciting one – HBO is in ‘preliminary discussions’ regarding a Watchmen TV show.

Collider broke the news, posting that Zack Snyder had met with HBO to talk about the comic book project. Snyder is keen to re-enter the world of Alan Moore’s comic - after his 2009 film - it would seem.

There’s no word yet on whether the show would be a remake of his film, a prequel or a sequel. There’s narrative potential in all three possibilities, so it’s hard even to speculate.

Our best bet would be a prequel that shows how the brightly coloured heroes fell from grace. That could be interesting. Before Watchmen – the 2012 prequel comic, which ran for 37 issues – could be a basis for that kind of idea. That being said, »

Reel TV: Zack Snyder and HBO Considering a 'Watchmen' Series; 'The Lego Movie' Guys Adapt 'Serial'

1 October 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

If you're one of the many, many people who felt Alan Moore's Watchmen comic would have worked considerably better as a TV series than as a movie, we've got some potentially great news for you. However, if that's the case but you also aren't a big Zack Snyder fan, we've got some potentially heartbreaking news for you: According to Collider, Snyder is in the early stages of talking to HBO about doing Watchmen as a TV series.  We don't know anything about these talks beyond the report that they're taking place. Would this be an open ended show that ran for a few seasons or would it be a contained mini-series? Would it be another adaptation of the original Watchmen or would it dip into the recently published series Before Watchmen? Either way...

HBO, Zack Snyder developing ‘Watchmen’ television series

1 October 2015 6:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Zack Snyder to television? But is this the right property to do so?

Fans of Watchmen should be thrilled as Collider reported on Thursday that HBO and director Zack Snyder have had discussions on doing a series based on the graphic novel. The original movie came out in 2008 and starred Billy Crudup, Patrick Wilson, Malin Akerman, Carla Gugino, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Jackie Earle Haley.

Don’t think this is set in stone, Collider says, but there is some momentum towards a series happening.

“Preliminary discussions regarding ‘Watchmen’ have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place”

Snyder directed Watchmen prior to becoming the head over the DC superhero universe with Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman v. Superman and Justice League. It is still unclear if Snyder would do any work outside of producing, but it is definitely an ambitious project to attempt. »

Following a report from Collider, the network sent out a statement confirming that a show may be in the cards. HBO said the following.

Zack Snyder Pitched A Watchmen Series To HBO

1 October 2015 4:34 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Zack Snyder is the man overseeing Warner Bros./DC’s movie universe at the moment, with the Justice League’s fledgling film days in full swing. But back in 2009, he tackled a much more controversial title, adapting Alan Moore and Dave GibbonsWatchmen graphic novel. And if he has his way, the darker take on DC superheroics could be back – on TV. Collider has heard that Snyder has apparently pitched some idea for a Watchmen series to HBO. No details were revealed about what form the story might take or where in the characters’ chronology the series could be set, but with Moore’s original tale and the more recent prequel run of comics (that sound you hear is Moore preparing a curse for everyone involved), there’s plenty of source material to draw from.But with no official confirmation of any meetings or plans, there’s no way of »

'Mad Max' Director Says No to 'Man of Steel 2'

1 October 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After the box office success of Mad Max: Fury Road, which earned $153 million domestic and $374.7 million worldwide, many fans are curious about what director George Miller will do next. Back in August, a rumor surfaced that George Miller was being eyed to direct Man of Steel 2 for Warner Bros., since the studio is so eager to work with the director again after Mad Max: Fury Road. While that report was never confirmed nor denied, George Miller himself said he was "in the mix" for that directorial gig. But now it isn't happening.

"There's been some of that in the mix, but I'd say that's probably not true."

A straight-up sequel to 2013's Man of Steel has never been officially confirmed by Warner Bros., with filmmaker Zack Snyder revealing that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is Man of Steel 2, "in a way." He did add that it would »
