Lex Luthor, Doomsday, Green Lantern Rumors

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

Three quite distinct pieces of news and rumor today tying back to Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe in the works at Warner Bros. Pictures.

First up, Jesse Eisenberg recently spoke with Variety about his role as the villain Lex Luthor and asked about his willingness to return to the role in later films: "I would love to. It's a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play."

He was also asked about whether he went bald for the role, something that still has yet to be confirmed. He responds: "I can't say anything about this stuff. They want all this to be a surprise."

Potential Major Spoilers Ahead

Next comes a follow-up to a rumor back in August which indicated that the corpse of General Zod (Michael Shannon) from "Man of Steel" plays an important part in »

Watch The Avengers Trailer Done In Zack Snyder's Watchmen Style

16 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron approaching fast, fans can't seem to get enough of their favorite Marvel superheroes. Ever since the arrival of its trailer in October of last year, the worldwide web has gone bonkers for everything and anything Avengers, creating knockoffs, remakes, mashups and spoofs of Cap, Stark, Hulk, Widow and the rest of the gang. Arguably, The Avengers franchise has inspired more fan-made internet material than any other film series in history. Right now, we're going to draw attention to a newly-surfaced throwback mock trailer of The Avengers done in the style of Zack Snyder's Watchmen. Check it out below. The mashup trailer, posted by The Unusual Suspect, features the Smashing Pumpkins track "The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning," which you may recognize from the original Watchmen trailer from about half a decade ago (it seems so long ago). It's weird seeing the Marvel »

This Fast And Furious Star Wants To Play Green Lantern

19 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Zack Snyder's Justice League is still a couple years out from now, but most of the line up is already locked down. With Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot heading up the pack as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman respectively, there's also Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fischer as Cyborg, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Yet there's one important Justice Leaguer that hasn't been cast yet, and Fast and Furious star Tyrese Gibson is throwing his hat into the ring, with some help from his fans. Through his official Instagram account, Gibson shared the following image, with the perfect caption to stoke the fire. Rumor has it that. A photo posted by Tyrese (@tyrese) on Jan 23, 2015 at 3:04pm Pst Rumor has it indeed, as there is a Green Lantern film set for June 19th, 2020; right at the tail end of Warner Bros' DC Cinematic Continuum release slate. »

Video: Watch The Avengers Cut In The Style Of Zack Snyder's Watchmen Trailer

24 January 2015 6:02 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last week, we shared a very impressive Star Wars/Age Of Ultron trailer from YouTube editor, The Unusual Suspect. It seems he's been up to his old tricks again, delivering another entertaining little mash-up. This time, he turns his focus on Joss Whedon's original Avengers movie and Zack Snyder's Watchmen. The video features footage from Marvel's 2012's smash hit, re-cut in the style of Snyder's epic trailer - arguably one of the best Cbm teasers of all time. Check it out below: Perhaps what's most impressive here is the way he manages to seemlessly blend together two movies with such contrasting tones. It's also always great to hear that Smashing Pumpkins theme again. The Unusual Suspect has been making waves for some time now. If you haven't already, I'd recommend you check out some of his other works over on his channel. What did you guys think? Are »

Is Michael Shannon in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

24 January 2015 4:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rumours have resurfaced again about Michael Shannon having a role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Shannon played General Zod in Man of Steel but due to his character’s fate in that film, it was thought unlikely that he would return for the latest instalment in the series. However, Shannon was spotted alongside Henry Cavill in Chicago a few months back, and now a new report from Comic Book is claiming that General Zod will appear in the new movie, with his body serving as the basis for Doomsday.

“His corpse is stolen (or perhaps just acquired, given his military contacts in most versions of the modern mythology) by Lex Luthor and experimented on, presumably in the hopes of finding a weakness to exploit against Superman. In the course of his experimenting, we’ve been told that he “triggers the Doomsday genome,” causing the corpse to reanimate as »

Tyrese Gibson As 'John Stewart'? Transformers Star Charges Up Green Lantern 'Rumor'

23 January 2015 8:35 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As Warner Bros. announced last year, the Green Lantern reboot is set for release on June 19, 2020, and is currently the last DC Comics film on the studio's superhero slate. However, it's been implied that a fresh take on the Emerald Crusader will feature in Zack Snyder's two-part Justice League movies in 2017 and 2018, which makes it somewhat interesting that singer/actor Tyrese Gibson (Transformers) recently posted fan-art of himself as the Green Lantern on Instagram and with the caption: "Rumor has it that." Given this would be a Warner Bros. production, Gibson is not likely teasing that he has the role or is even in talks, but he could be taking cues from his Fast & Furious 6 co-star Vin Diesel, whose social media lobbying landed him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sure, this might not be the best way to join DC's Universe, but what do you think of the »

'Batman v Superman' to Bring Back 'Man of Steel' Villain?

23 January 2015 5:44 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warning! There may be Spoilers ahead! Back in August, a report surfaced from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which revealed that the corpse of General Zod, played by Michael Shannon in 2013's Man of Steel, plays an important part in the events that unfold in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The earlier report, which was never confirmed, stated that Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) was experimenting on Zod's dead body, since it is, "the key to his master plan to defeat Superman." While the report didn't divulge what exactly Luthor was using Zod's corpse for, today we have a new report from ComicBook.com that fills in the blanks.

Over the course of Luthor's experiments with Zod's corpse, he reportedly, "triggers the Doomsday genome" which re-animates the dead body and turns it into the villainous Doomsday. Granted, we've heard a number of Doomsday rumors over the past year, »

General Zod To Become Doomsday In Batman v Superman?

23 January 2015 3:35 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In November, Michael Shannon was photographed in Chicago hanging out with his Man Of Steel co-star Henry Cavill. Since then, fans have speculated that Shannon might reprise his role for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, despite having his neck snapped like a twig by Superman. How can Zod return if he is dead? Well, comicbook.com has just posted a new rumor that could offer an explanation. His corpse is stolen (or perhaps just acquired, given his military contacts in most versions of the modern mythology) by Lex Luthor and experimented on, presumably in the hopes of finding a weakness to exploit against Superman. In the course of his experimenting, we've been told that he "triggers the Doomsday genome," causing the corpse to reanimate as the mindless killing machine at the center of The Death of Superman. It has been previously reported that Doomsday will appear in the film, »

More Lex Luthor Films For Jesse Eisenberg? Here's What He Said

23 January 2015 1:22 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was just about a year ago today that Warner Bros. officially confirmed that Jesse Eisenberg will indeed play Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, slated for release next year. Other than that, it's uncertain what may lie ahead for Eisenberg's Luthor but the actor did recently speak on the subject, sharing his excitement for the potential of his character resurfacing in future Superman films. While promoting his latest film The End of the Tour, the actor was asked a few questions about his role in another, inarguably much larger project, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and whether he'll be following it up with more appearances as supervillain Lex Luthor in other Superman sequels. This is what he had to say. " I would love to. It.s a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play." I don't know »

Jesse Eisenberg talks reprising Lex Luthor role after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

23 January 2015 12:37 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With his latest film, The End of the Tour, premiering at this month’s Sundance Film Festival, Variety caught up with Jesse Eisenberg about the film, but also dropped in a few questions about another small indie film he has coming out next year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While Eisenberg didn’t divulge too much, particularly about his hairstyle for the film, the actor did suggest that he would be more than happy to reprise the role in any future DC film, let alone a Batman v Superman sequel.

“I would love to,” says Eisenberg. “It’s a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play.”

Rumours are abound that Luthor is set to appear in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, whether in a cameo or as the film’s big bad. But while he has obvious excitement about the role and the forthcoming film, »

Gary Sinise And More Rumoured To Join The ‘Suicide Squad’

23 January 2015 11:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The upcoming Suicide Squad adaptation from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, has quickly become one of the most highly anticipated blockbusters of the next few years. Not only will David Ayer (Fury) helm the large scale project, but the film also boasts an all-star cast consisting of Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Jared Leto.

However, this past week has seen the production hit a minor speed bump with the unexpected departure of Tom Hardy. It was initially assumed that Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) would replace the Dark Knight Rises star in the role of Rick Flag, however it has since been revealed that he declined the invitation. Now, two more potential candidates for the part of Flag have arisen, and they are certainly interesting choices!

Ayer is reportedly considering both Jon Bernthal and Joel Edgerton as Hardy’s replacement in the upcoming DC Comics adaptation. While Bernthal will be »

Star Wars: Is The Han Solo Movie Also The Boba Fett Movie?

23 January 2015 10:40 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It looks like the first Star Wars “spin-off” movie, to be directed by Gareth Edwards, is gearing up to start shooting. We know that there was a reading of the draft done by Gary Whitta in the UK and now production is going to move stateside, likely to be close to Mexico.

Making Star Wars has some bullet points they obtained by talking to sources inside Pinewood Studios that flesh out where this non-trilogy film is going to look like:

Expect more on-location shooting than for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Crew members are hearing their start dates now.

Many believe they are doing a lot of work on-location in Mexico for the first spin-off.

There have been some Star Wars: The Force Awakens re-shoots going down recently at Pinewood using some of those people.

Bounty hunters are important to the film.

Painters are expected to redress some »
