Textless version of the Jason Momoa Aquaman character image from Batman v Superman released, first trailer coming over Easter?

26 March 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday marked exactly one year to the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Warner Bros. celebrating by giving us our first look at a bald Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and now EW (via Cbm) has released an official version of the Jason Momoa Aquaman image, minus the ‘Unite the Seven’ tagline…

On a side note, we’ve heard a whisper today that the first trailer for Batman v Superman will be with us on April 4th. This is unconfirmed, and there may be nothing to it so please don’t take it as gospel. Our money is on the first trailer coming with Mad Max: Fury Road. But you never know…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on March 25th 2016 and sees Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane »

Macross Cynicism Pause | Sony Pushes for Robotech Movie

26 March 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I’m half Japanese. I’m an american. I’ve lived in Japan for a lot of my earlier childhood and 1/4 of my life. I have land there. I knew ramen was  life since the ’80s, and not cheap college student menu before U.S. hipsters of the past several years did. I even rocked a bento strong in elementary school, some of which were Macross branded. I was introduced to Macross through Robotech though, as I suspect most people in the U.S. were, but in my years in Japan, I’ve never come across anyone (the count is officially zero) who seem to care more about how Robotech came into being  as I have in english speaking messaegeboards in the 21st century. They have theirs, we have ours. As a child of both worlds it was never really a conflict, so it’s always puzzled me why it »

10 Things DC Wants You To Forget About Lex Luthor

26 March 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Superman may be the archetypal superhero from whose rib all later comic book heroes were created, but Lex Luthor is far from your typical supervillain. The Man Of Steel’s arch nemesis is a smart, conniving, megalomaniacal and intensely driven sort that isn’t a world away from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg; or at least the Mark Zuckerberg from the recent movie The Social Network. And if his world domination plan involved social media instead of robots.

Which makes Jesse Eisenberg’s casting as the villain in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice a stroke of genius. Eisenberg has the requisite chops to not only make Luthor the true threat he is – despite lacking any powers of his own, and coming up against the indestructible Last Son Of Krypton – whilst also conveying what a complex character Lex is.

Plus, as the picture released by Snyder this week proves, »

Cleaner Image Of Jason Momoa In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice; Aquaman’s Suicide Squad Link Revealed?

26 March 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yesterday kickstarted the 365 day countdown to when Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice will careen into multiplexes the world over. March 25, 2016 is a long way off, and expectation surrounding Zack Snyder’s superhero team-up movie continues to mount on a daily basis. Rumors, speculation, set images have all cluttered the web and sparked much early excitement for a film that’s yet to even grant us a trailer. The absence of which makes every tiny morsel all the more newsworthy. So, with that in mind, we can now bring you a cleaner look at Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.

This is, in fact, the very same image Snyder debuted earlier in the year – but minus the “Unite The Seven” text plastered on top. This textless version appeared as part of EW‘s “What we know so far” coverage of the movie, which also includes portraits of Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, »

'Batman v Superman' Character Portraits So Far

26 March 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday marked the one year wait for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, we are one day closer to seeing this epic DC Comics movie play out on the big screen, and 5 character portraits richer for our troubles. Thus far, director Zack Snyder has been kind enough to offer a look at his superheroes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman. And then yesterday, he finally unveiled the very bald Lex Luthor. We've collected them all for you to see here!

Can you believe it's been almost two years since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was first announced at Comic-Con 2013? It wasn't until several months later, on March 13, 2014, that we got our first look at Ben Affleck in his new Batman costume standing next to the Batmobile, which sent fans into a frenzy. Four months went by before we got our first look at Henry Cavill in his new Superman costume, »

See Batman V Superman’s Aquaman Minus Giant Letters

26 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In February, we got our first look at Jason Momoa as Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We also got a look at gigantic text plastered over his face telling us to “Unite the Seven”. Thankfully, we now have a look at the character minus the text, so if you want to continue collecting your hero portraits—so far there’s also Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot)—add this to your collection. Presumably, we’ll get the remaining characters—The Flash and Cyborg—sometime in the next year leading up to the film’s release (the current rumor is that Green Lantern won’t be showing up until possibly Justice League: Part I). Check out the Batman v Superman Aquaman image below [via EW], and scroll down further for a potential spoiler about what happens to his trident.

26 March 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams are reportedly circling writer/director Tom Ford's postmodern thriller "Nocturnal Animals," to be produced by George Clooney. The Hollywood Reporter says Gyllenhaal is attached to star, and that Adams is currently in talks. There's also talk of Joaquin Phoenix and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (who played John Lennon in "Nowhere boy" and is married to "Fifty Shades" director Sam Taylor-Johnson) potentially being chased for roles. Gyllenhaal has just finished his Broadway stint in "Constellations" and has Antoine Fuqua's gritty boxing drama "Southpaw" coming this year along with Jean-Marc Vallee's "Demolition." Adams will also be working with the busy Vallee on "The Story of Your Life" and reprises her role as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice," which is in post-production.

How "Justice" And "Suicide Squad" Link Up?

26 March 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With David Ayer's "Suicide Squad" to be the first DC cinematic universe film to be released in the wake of Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," there's obviously been questions about how 'Squad' will tie in both with 'Dawn' and the subsequent "Justice League" films.

Spoilers Ahead

There's been numerous rumors, from Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) cameos to easter eggs tying back to Batman and Amanda Waller's intent to use him to flush out other superheroes. A new rumor today from Latino Review suggests how one character from 'Dawn' ties into the film as well - Aquaman (Jason Momoa).

The site claims that Waller (Viola Davis) has a personal trophy case in the lower levels of the prison where all the super powered meta humans are kept. The case includes several key artifacts, one of which is Aquaman's trident as »

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - 'Lex Luthor' Revealed

26 March 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek the first official look @ actor Jesse Eisenberg, playing young 'Lex Luthor', plus a behind-the-scenes look at the actor, with and without his hairpiece, on the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

The original 'Alexander Joseph "Lex" Luthor', created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, debuted in "Action Comics" #23 (April 1940), with a full head of red hair...

...described as "...a power-mad, evil scientist" of high intelligence and incredible technological prowess.

Luthor's ultimate goal of killing 'Superman' was to be a stepping stone to his evil domination of the universe.

In subsequent comic books, Luthor became hairless as the result of an artist's mistake. A 1960 story by Jerry Siegel expanded upon Luthor's origin and motivations, revealing him to be a childhood friend of Superman's who lost his hair when a fire destroyed his laboratory. »

Rumored Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Plot Reveals Reason Behind The Titular Pair’s Titanic Showdown

26 March 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice may still be a full year from release, but that hasn’t stopped fans chomping at the bit to uncover more about Warner Bros’ titanic showdown. Yesterday, we had the first reveal of Jesse Eisenberg as evil supervillain Lex Luthor, but today Badass Digest brings word of some fresh speculation relating to the film’s plot which, you should be warned, delves into spoiler territory unabated.

Spoiler warning!

Still with us? Great. According to Badass Digest’s report, Dawn of Justice will still use The Dark Knight Returns as a major touchstone, though it’s understood there will be a number of significant differences between Frank Miller’s seminal comic and Snyder’s feature film. For one, it is Clark Kent who instigates the encounter between the titular pairing at the command of Lex Luthor. How and why exactly this plays out remains to be seen, »

'Suicide Squad': 'Aquaman' Connection Revealed?

26 March 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though Suicide Squad is not necessarily tied directly into Justice League, we know that it is part of DC and Warner Bros.' expansive cinematic universe. So, many believe that this third film in their planned series will somehow connect to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While it has been widely rumored that both Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor will make appearances at some point, Latino Review is back with yet another rumor that claims the movie will also tease a connection to Aquaman. It seems that Amanda Waller, who brings this group of super villains together for an impossible mission, has had her own run in with the legendary Atlantis superhero.

In a recent interview, Viola Davis called her Amanda Waller a brutal badass. That may be true if this latest tidbit proves to be accurate. According to El Mayimbe, Waller is »

Possible Spoiler On Another Way Suicide Squad Connects With Batman V Superman

26 March 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Though the following probably won't have a direct bearing on the plot of this movie, the latest Suicide Squad scoop from El Mayimbe definitely sets up some interesting stuff for future films, and might give us an idea of what to expect when it comes to a certain character in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. We were deliberately vague in the teaser so as not to spoil the surprise, but word is Amanda Waller is going to have Aquaman's trident (the very one being grasped by Jason Momoa in the above image) in her trophy case under the prison where she keeps all of the supervillians she recruits for Task Force X. How did she come by this? How will the King of Atlantis be relieved of it in Batman V Superman? We'll have to wait just under a year to find out, but it's »

X-Men: Apocalypse Casts Its Jubilee; No Word on Her Yellow Trenchcoat

26 March 2015 7:09 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

X-Men: Apocalypse is going to be an ’80s period piece, so of course it will include Jubilee, the most ’80s-est mutant. Bryan Singer announced this week that newcomer Lana Condor will play the part of Jubilation Lee, joining Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler. There's been no indication whether or not Condor will don Jubilee's famous yellow trench coat, but given that this is a Singer project, its chances of survival are slightly higher than if, say, Zack Snyder were directing. »

Here's Your First Look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' (Photo)

26 March 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Comic book fans have been wondering how curly-haired actor Jesse Eisenberg will look as Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Now, we have our first glimpse of how Eisenberg will embody the character.

Entertainment Weekly shared a photo of Eisenberg as Luthor, and the stark, black and white image certainly bodes well for the actor's portrayal of the notorious villain. The now-bald Eisenberg looks every bit the part, and it's not just the chrome dome -- he stares down the camera with such a menacing intensity that it's hard to hold his gaze for very long.

Some of director Zack Snyder's casting choices for the flick have raised eyebrows (remember the uproar over Batfleck?), but we think Eisenberg looks spot-on as Luthor. As Synder explained to EW, this interpretation of the character is "not any of the Lexes that you've seen, »

First Look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

26 March 2015 4:21 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

It was a bit surprising when Warner Bros announced that Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) has been cast as Lex Luthor in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Considering that Eisenberg is a young actor, many fans wanted to know if Luthor would be bald. And today, we have the first photo of Eisenberg from the movie, answering that question. Check it out below. "He's not any of the Lexes that you've seen, that's for sure," said director Zack Snyder. "Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course. Our Lex is disarming and he's not fake. He says what he believes and he says what's on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it's all there." "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" co-stars Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman. »
