Henry Cavill on whether Lois Lane or Wonder Woman is a better fit for Superman

24 August 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »

Warner Bros. CEO on the decision to push Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice back to 2016

20 August 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Warner Bros. first announced Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2015, the DC superhero ensemble was originally set to arrive on July 17th 2015. However, the film was pushed back to May 6th, 2016, which put it head-to-head with Marvel’s then-unannounced Captain America: Civil War, before WB decided to shift the date again to March 25th 2016.

By the time the film rolls around, it will have been close to three years since the previous instalment Man of Steel, and now Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara has offered up a few words on the studio’s decision to shuffle around the release date.

Will Poulter And Anthony Michael Hall Board Netflix’s War Machine

20 August 2015 12:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The cast for War Machine, Netflix’s next foray into original films, is starting to take shape. The Brad Pitt-starring pic already snagged Scoot McNairy last week, and this week, it’s found two more supporting actors in Will Poulter and Anthony Michael Hall.

The film will be directed by Animal Kingdom helmer David Michôd and is based on the bestselling book The Operators: The Wild And Terrifying Inside Story Of America’s War In Afghanistan by the late journalist Michael Hastings.

For those unfamiliar with the source material, it focused on a four star, “rock star” general whose lethal reputation and impeccable track record vaults him to command the American war in Afghanistan. Pitt is set to play the general, and Hall is locked in for the part of his second in command. As for Poulter, there’s no word yet on who he’ll play, but expect an update soon. »

General Zod will have “flippers instead of hands” in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

19 August 2015 11:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Michael Shannon’s Man of Steel villain General Zod is confirmed to be making an appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, his exact role in the film has largely been kept a secret. While we may not know how Zod fits into the plot (spoilers), especially considering that he died in Man of Steel, actor Michael Shannon did reveal some information about his character’s strange new look in a recent interview with Vulture.

While telling an anecdote about how he got stuck in a porta-potty during the shoot, Shannon said, “I was in my costume, and I couldn’t use my fingers because in the sequel I have flippers instead of hands. So I had these wax flippers on my fingers, and I couldn’t open the door, and I could hear Zack [Snyder, the director] being like, ‘Where’s Shannon?'”

Michael Wilkinson on designing the costumes for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

19 August 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following his work on Man of Steel, costume designer Michael Wilkinson then tasked with creating the look for The Dark Knight and the Amazon Princess (not to mention Aquaman) for the upcoming DC epic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from director Zack Snyder. Now, during an interview with Peoples Choice, Wilkinson has offered some insight into his work on the hotly-anticipated blockbuster.

“We tweaked the Superman suit only slightly from our suit from Man of Steel,” states Wilkinson. “We streamlined plus sharpened the details of the costume a little to suit the more earthly (less alien) context of this film. The batsuit is a complete 180 degree turn from the previous film incarnations — our Batman’s power comes from his incredible physical strength and fighting skills, not from armor. The director Zack Snyder wanted him to look as much like the comic book version as possible — to be respectful to the original source. »

And just like that new Tom Hiddleston and Sandra Bullock flicks are headed to Toronto

18 August 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After the initial slate for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival was announced last month there were many observers, including this pundit, who wondered of the annual September event had once again lost the battle of premieres to its Fall festival cousins.  While debuting Ridley Scott's "The Martian," Jean Marc Valle's "Demolition" and Michael Moore's "Where Do We Invade Next" is nothing to sneeze at the fact some of the most anticipated films of the year are heading to Venice and Telluride first has to be a bit disheartening.  Especially when it's your 40th anniversary.  Never fear fans of the Great White North, Toronto always seems to land some eyebrow raising last minute additions and this year is no different. Today Tiff announced that David Gordon Green's "Our Brand Is Crisis" with Sandra Bullock, Marc Abraham's "I Saw The Light" with Tom Hiddleston, Catherine Hardwicke's "Miss You Already »
