Joker and Harley Quinn teased in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Super Bowl spot

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

DC and Turkish Airlines had two Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice commercials placed in last night’s Superbowl, announcing the airline’s new routes to Metropolis and Gotham.

In the latter, amongst shots of Bruce Wayne discussing rebuilding his beloved Gotham after the events of Man of Steel, the cityscape twice shows a building called Ace Chemicals.

Ace Chemicals is known as one of The Joker’s most prominent origin stories (definitively told in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke). There, a stand-up comedian with no name is dressed up as the infamous gangster ‘Red Hood’. He falls into a vat of chemicals after a showdown with a young Batman, permanently bleaching his skin white, and birthing The Joker.

A very similar scene is shown in the most recent Suicide Squad trailer, where Dr. Harleen Quinzel (who later becomes The Joker’s lover and partner-in-crime Harley Quinn) is lifted »

Casting Walking Dead characters in Batman – watch the first episode of Flickering Myth’s Jump Cut

7 February 2016 2:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Two actors from the hit AMC zombie drama The Walking Dead are in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – the lovely Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays super bad guy Negan. They will be Martha and Dr. Thomas Wayne respectively, Bruce Wayne’s mum and dad.

It got me thinking: how would the characters they play in The Walking Dead, and the other principle cast, best translate into the Batman mythology? And, as the second half of The Walking Dead beings this Sunday, why not devote the first episode of Flickering Myth’s new weekly YouTube show Jump Cut to the question? You can watch the video below, or, if you fancy text-based fantasy casting scenarios, the transcript is just beneath that.

First, the obvious one. Rick Grimes, the main man in Walking Dead, would be Bruce Wayne Batman. Apart from both being their respective universes’ central characters, »

Zack Snyder on the Justice League’s involvement in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

5 February 2016 3:08 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As well as bringing DC’s two biggest icons together on the big screen for the very first time, Warner Bros.Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will also pave the way for the two-part Justice League movie by featuring Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash, and director Zack Snyder has been discussing the role they’ll play during an interview with Hall of Justice.

“As far as the other Justice League characters go, they play a very small role,” states Snyder. “It’s really just a whisper they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her really well. But really, the movie is about Batman and Superman. And we really take time with them and we really drill down on the why of them and what they stand for and their beliefs and them as characters. That’s pretty much the why of the movie. But again as I said, »

Zack Snyder on Man of Steel: “If you’re a comic book fan, you know that I didn’t change Superman”

5 February 2016 12:22 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact the movie is almost three years old, Zack Snyder is still coming under fire from some fans for his handling of Superman in the 2013 reboot Man of Steel.

Appearing on the Hall of Justice podcast to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Snyder has once again addressed complaints about the film, stating that comic book fans who know the true canon of the Man of Steel know he didn’t change Superman.

“I was pretty ready for it,” said Snyder with regards to the backlash. “I knew that we were really updating a beloved character. I don’t think ‘changing him’ — People are always like ‘you changed Superman.’ If you’re a comic book fan, you know that I didn’t change Superman. If you know the true canon, you know that I didn’t change Superman. If you’re a fan of the old movies, »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Reportedly Adds Comedian Steve Agee

3 February 2016 11:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though there’s no official word from Marvel or director James Gunn yet, it sounds like comedian Steve Agee will have a role of some description in the soon-to-begin-shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2.

This news was spilled by fellow funny man Doug Benson during his Doug Loves Movies podcast. While interview mutual friend Scoot Mcnairy, Benson let slip that they were actually supposed to have Agee on the show but he couldn’t make it because he was off working on the Marvel sequel.

[Steve] just found out because he’s in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he has to shoot that bulls–t instead of being here with us today!

Agee (best know for his appearances on The Sarah Silverman Program) is also a pal of Gunn’s and will appear in the director’s  upcoming horror thriller The Belko Experiment – so there’s a pretty good »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 adds Steve Agee

2 February 2016 1:34 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Steve Agee has been added to the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, according to a recent episode of Doug Loves Movies.

During the February 1st episode of the podcast, host Doug Benson was talking to guest Scoot McNairy (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), who he originally had gotten in contact with thanks to Agee, a mutual friend of theirs. When explaining why Agee wasn’t able to be on the show, Benson said, “… [Steve] just found out because he’s in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he has to shoot that bullshit instead of being here with us today.”

Before 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy was released, Agee was rumored to be in the cast of the film, but director James Gunn eventually cleared things up and confirmed that he would not appear. Obviously, the two friends will now be working together on the sequel. »

Japanese 'Batman v Superman' Trailer Has Doomsday on the Attack

2 February 2016 11:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, box office analysts started tracking Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with the early projections claiming that this highly-anticipated superhero adventure will take in approximately $154 million during its opening weekend in late March. While we still have to wait several weeks to see if those projections will hold up, Warner Entertainment Japan has released an international trailer, which doesn't include any new footage but offers a brief refresher course on this blockbuster-to-be, in case it's been awhile since you've seen the previous trailers. It isn't known if the studio plans on releasing any new footage between now and the March 25 release date.

If you look closely at this trailer, you'll notice Scoot McNairy's mysterious character in two scenes, one where he's in a wheelchair near the Metropolis memorial, and another where Superman (Henry Cavill) is seen entering a Senate hearing. A rumor surfaced yesterday »

Scoot McNairy's "Batman" Role Revealed

2 February 2016 8:44 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The role that actor Scoot McNairy plays in Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has been one of contention since he joined the project.

Originally rumored to be up for The Flash, for much of the last few months its thought that he would take on the role of Daily Planet reporter Jimmy Olsen - in this case one who was crippled in the events of "Man of Steel" but holds no grudge against Superman for what happened.

It hasn't been confirmed though, and McNairy has yet to appear in any promotional material for the film beyond cast lists. Now, a new report over at Latino Review has refuted the long-held belief about his character, and posted what they claim are the real details:

Just who is Scoot McNairy playing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? It’s a question that has been asked in our headlines on more than a few occasions, but every query has been met with silence by Warner Bros. Because of the secrecy, and because McNairy was spotted on set wearing bright green stockings […]

All Those Rumours About Who Scoot McNairy Was Playing In Batman V Superman Were Wrong

2 February 2016 5:53 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Entertainment

If you thought that Scoot McNairy was going to be playing a 38-year-old Jimmy Olsen (come on now) in Batman V Superman, you were wrong – according to Latino Review, at least. They’ve been right plenty of times to trust their scoops, and combined with the fact that people were just plucking character names out of thin air when they saw his unnamed character in unauthorised set pics… it’s always been highly unlikely that he was Olsen.

Due to the fact the actor was seen on set wearing green socks, speculation was rife (as it always is) as to what the final purpose of that was, whether he was going to have metal legs à la Metallo or what have you – and it’s turned out that he’ll be playing a wheelchair-bound survivor of Zod’s attacks on Metropolis (you can see him in the trailer, »

Scoot McNairy rumoured to be another villain in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

2 February 2016 12:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the film coming out in under two months, rumours and speculation are still running rampant for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, particularly when it comes to the bad guys. We’ve heard potential rumours of Bizarro showing up in the movie via some Lego sets (and a seemingly concrete confirmation) and there was a rumour a while back that villains such as KGBeast would show up at some point. We already know that Lex Luthor and Doomsday are in the anticipated team-up, but a new rumour suggests that another villain will be on the big screen.

It is still unknown who Scoot McNairy will be playing in the movie – with speculation saying he’s Jimmy Olsen, Metallo and even Green Lantern – but Latino-Review say they’ve got the inside scoop. According to the website, McNairy is playing an anonymous pawn in Lex Luthor’s plan, and was left »
