Since it was announced last year, we’ve heard a lot of talk about one half of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not so much on the other. Over the weekend our comments section blew up as people gave their thoughts on the colour of Batman’s new outfit, but there wasn’t so much talk about Superman when his costume was revealed.
Warning – potential spoilers…
So, just what will become of the Last Son of Krypton in this team-up movie? Well, according to Bad Ass Digest, the destruction caused by the fight between Superman and Zod in Man of Steel will play a major role in the plot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to their sources who have read the script, Superman has become a very controversial figure, having intervened in America’s fight in the Middle East and has even been banned from Chinese airspace. »

We’ve seen a couple of shots of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not in colour… until now. ComicBook has discovered a colourised version of the first official photo of Affleck’s Dark Knight, which is taken directly from Zack Snyder’s Cruel & Unusual Films production company website…
So, pretty much as expected, but now that we know exactly what colour scheme they’ve gone with, how do you think it stacks up against the previous all-black versions we’ve seen on the big screen?
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016 with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has recently wrapped shooting but is not due for release for another fifteen months yet. The film is set to introduce us to lots of new characters and reimagining of characters we have seen on screen before. One of those is Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth, played by Jeremy Irons, and so far not much has been said or revealed about the character in this version. Until now.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Irons revealed a bit of information about his role of Alfred, stating that it’s “not a large role” and adding that: “He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted. I would just say he’s more hands-on perhaps than just a butler.”
So although it is a small role it sounds like it »

Filming has wrapped, but we’re still a little way off from an official trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (unless it does come out this year, attached to The Hobbit: The Five Armies), but that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill churning.
So what do have today? Robin? Doomsday? KGBeast?? Nope. According to Bad Ass Digest, there will be a major Batman character that will already be dead by the time the movie starts.
Still with us? Spoilers ahead…
So, the site is claiming that Detective Jim Gordon will already be dead in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with script calling for a shot of his memorial plate. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a rumour that the Batman character will already be dead, with the same site reporting that Robin would have bitten the dust as well.
What do we make of this new rumour? »

Recently, The Hollywood Reporter caught up to "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" Alfred star, Jeremy Irons (left), and he revealed a little tidbit spoiler teaser for how Alfred's demeanor will be in this version. It turns out that we're going to see a very different Alfred than any of the other ones we've ever seen as he'll be a little more hands on. Jeremey told them: "He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted. I would just say he’s more hands-on perhaps than just a butler.” As previously reported, filming for the movie, has just recently wrapped up. And there's a rumor going around that a new teaser trailer for it could show up during the "Hobbit 3: The Battle Of The Five Armies" on December 17th, 2014. The movie stars: Henry Cavill as Superman »
We cover Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice nonstop, but we actually haven’t discussed Jeremy Irons’ involvement in the film since he was first cast as Alfred back in January. However, while attending the Marrakech International Film Festival to receive a career tribute, Irons teased what we can expected from his version of Alfred in the upcoming release. Hit the jump to catch what Irons said about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's Alfred. The film is due in theaters on March 25, 2016 and also stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter and Scoot McNairy. Here’s what Irons had to say about his role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice via THR: "He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted. I would just »

Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wrapped filming this weekend, so we still have a very long 15 months of trying to find out every single thing we can about the movie before it opens, and that's not to mention all of the other Dccu movies in the works. One of those movies is 2018's Aquaman starring Jason Momoa as The King of the Seven Seas. Speaking at Comic-Con Experience in São Paulo, Brazil, Momoa couldn't comment on the details of Batman v Superman, but he did talk about his contract, when he came on board, his hopes for the character's future, and more. The most surprising revelation is that he's only signed for four movies. While he didn't specify, I assume he's talking about Batman v Superman, Justice League: Part I and Part II, and Aquaman. This is yet another way DC/WB is breaking away »

Black Sea, 2014.
Directed by Kevin Mcdonald.
In order to make good with his former employers, a submarine captain takes a job with a shadowy backer to search the depths of the Black Sea for a submarine rumored to be loaded with gold.
“The most dangerous creation of any society is the man who has nothing to lose” wrote American author James A. Baldwin and in Black Sea director Kevin Macdonald puts us in a Russian submarine 100 metres below the surface with a handful of men who have exactly that. Aside from one young man who should never have been there, I didn’t trust single one of them and therein lies the secret to this thrilling, claustrophobic, and dangerous underwater adventure.
Four tonnes of Nazi gold lies at the bottom of »

Flickering Myth TV sat down with the director of new submarine thriller Black Sea, Kevin MacDonald (The Last King of Scotland) to ask him about all things under-watery. Apart from mermaids. There wasn’t enough time for mermaids.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the movie:
“A suspenseful adventure thriller directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald, centering on a rogue submarine captain (two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law) who pulls together a misfit crew to go after a sunken treasure rumored to be lost in the depths of the Black Sea. As greed and desperation take control onboard their claustrophobic vessel, the increasing uncertainty of the mission causes the men to turn on each other to fight for their own survival.”

Having been shooting since May, cinematographer Larry Fong has taken to Instagram to announce that filming has now wrapped on Warner Bros.’ hotly-anticipated DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The production has taken in locations in Los Angeles, Detroit and Chicago, as well as scenes in New Mexico which were originally planned for Morocco.
Now, let’s see if we get that first teaser trailer which is rumoured to be attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies…

That’s right – after months of speculation, DC have finally announced the main cast for their supervillain team-up movie Suicide Squad. Comic book favourites Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Boomerang and Joker will all appear. Which is why we appear so serious.
In other supervillain news, the main foe of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has been uncovered and the title and cast for the new James Bond movie has been announced, along with a mighty find automobile (spoiler: it doesn’t double up as a submarine). Find out the answers to all that and more in this week’s episode of the Movie Newsgasm below.
Fmtv will be back next week with our Jurassic World trailer video review and again on Friday for the Movie Newsgasm. »

After about eight months of shooting, director Zack Snyder has wrapped production on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The news comes from cinematographer Larry Fong via his Instagram. The production will now move into the post-production process, where the magic of sound, editing, colorization, special effects, and several other elements will be completed to bring this film to life for the fans.
I have to say say that I'm surprised that we didn't see more leaked set photos of Ben Affleck as Batman. In fact, we haven't seen any leaked photos of him in full costume. That's a pretty impressive feat. We have seen some of him as Bruce Wayne, and we've also seen some of the Batmobile and Henry Cavill as Superman.
The movie is set to be released on March 25th, 2016, and I'm looking forward to seeing more footage. I'm sure Snyder will have a lot more »

For an adventure set on (or, more accurately, beneath) the high seas, there’s something peculiarly low-key about “Black Sea,” a modern-day pirate thriller — complete with buried treasure — in which maritime derring-do takes a backseat to subtler, neo-Cold War skulduggery. As ruggedly crafted as you’d expect from director Kevin Macdonald, with a sturdy ensemble led by Jude Law as a submarine captain of formidable sangfroid, the film nonetheless never quite sparks to life: The predominantly stern tone of Dennis Kelly’s script sits oddly with its fanciful plotting, while the emotional temperature of proceedings largely matches the icy depths in which they take place. Commercially, the pic faces choppily competitive waters when it opens in Blighty on Dec. 5; Stateside, Focus Features is unlikely to regret holding fire until late January.
Macdonald’s Oscar-decorated credentials as a docmaker have lent a certain sinewy authority even to commercial productions as far-fetched »

An underwater heist of Nazi loot? Awesome. Submarine movies don’t get much better than this intensely suspenseful popcorn adventure. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
An underwater heist of Nazi loot. Does a submarine movie get better than this? How about some rage against the 1 percent thrown in for fun? Jude Law’s (Dom Hemingway, Rise of the Guardians) Robinson is a veteran of the British navy who’s been working in marine salvage until he gets an unceremonious boot from his job: nothing wrong with his work, just changin’ times, and don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out. He puts together a team of similarly hopeless men who’ve given their lives to the same dangerous, demanding work and have been discarded with nothing but flipping burgers as a career option. »

According to Badass Digest – who are usually spot on with “scoops” – Doomsday will indeed be in the main villain of the piece. Not only that, but Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will have a henchman who is called Anatoli Knyazev in the script. Hardcore DC fans will take pride in knowing that this is in fact DC villain KGBeast, who has battled with Batman in the past. It is unlikely that we’ll see KGBeast in action in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but there are always other films…

Here's a submarine thriller that delivers on tension but doesn't get too deep, which is surprising when you consider that director Kevin Macdonald is also the man behind The Last King of Scotland and State of Play. Still, there is some meat for Jude Law to chew on as the captain of an undersea mission to recover a stash of gold and he proves himself a sturdy anchor.
Apart from an impressive Scottish accent, the actor shows some serious grit as Captain Robinson, who is laid off after years of loyal service to a salvage company. For a while it looks as though Macdonald is venturing into a socialist diatribe against big business as Robinson and his colleagues gather at the pub to fuel their anger. The »

Sneak Peek images from the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", revealing actor Scoot McNairy ("Halt and Catch Fire") filming a dialogue scene in the film, reportedly as reporter 'Jimmy Olsen':
"...Scoot is playing 'Jimmy Olsen', but with a bit of a twist. Jimmy was injured during the battle of 'Zod' vs 'Superman'.
"His legs were pinned under falling building rubble and that caused him to lose the legs.
"He now walks with prosthetic legs that will be realized with CGI FX, hence the green-screen socks worn by McNaairy on set. Jimmy doesn't blame Superman for the accident, but grateful to 'Kal-El' for saving the world..."
The comic book origins of Jimmy Olsen began as an unnamed 'office boy' debuted in DC's "Action Comics" #6 (November 1938). That character was also first introduced as 'Jimmy Olsen' in the »
