Lynda Carter on how she’d like to see Wonder Woman portrayed in Batman vs. Superman

11 April 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Zack Snyder and actress Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) gear up to give a big screen debut to the Amazon Princess, former Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has shared her feelings on how she’d like to see the character portrayed in the Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman, telling The Huffington Post that…

“I’m in [Gal's] corner. I just hope they write well for her. I’m very hopeful she embodies the essence of Wonder Woman. It’s less about super powers and more about heart and intellect and a sense of right and wrong with a goodness in her. Often times, writers really want to take a male superhero and dress him up as a female – and that’s just not who she is… They make Wonder Woman a macho Superman type character – they make her mean – and that’s not who she is.”

Do you agree with Carter? »

History of Live-Action Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman

11 April 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Reddit user Hitokirivader created a collage of most (but not all) of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman's live-action costumes.

Hitokirivader added:

I made tributes to the Supermen and Batmen, so it only felt fitting to include all 73 years of Wonder Women too

A few things come to mind, wow what a crazy imbalance, why is Wonder Woman not spelled Wonderwoman, Gal Gadot looks like she's got the same build as Lynda Carter, I don't miss Superman's underwear on the outside look, and none of the movie Batmen can turn their heads.

8 female comic book characters who deserve their own movies

9 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's no secret that women have been neglected in comic book movies. Certainly, only a tiny number of female superheroes have so far made it to the big screen. Female leads are still shockingly rare, and even Joss Whedon only managed one out of six in his Avengers ensemble movie.

Things are looking up, with Scarlet Witch and Gamora coming to Avengers: Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy respectively, hints at a Black Widow solo outing, and Wonder Woman due to feature in the Batman vs Superman film - although, tellingly, not in her own movie.

It's time that the women of comics got some recognition. Here are our top picks from the many worthy candidates that we want to see in their own solo movies:

Wonder Woman

Who is she?

As if you need to be told. DC Comics's foremost heroine, she is a feminist icon »

Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, & Holly Hunter Join the Cast of Batman vs. Superman

3 April 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With filming for Zack Snyder's follow-up to Man of Steel set to being very soon, casting for the movie has obviously been stepped up.  Just now, Warner Bros. issued a press release announcing that three new actors have been cast in the movie for various roles.  Come inside to check out all the details!  

If you're hoping for information on who they'll be playing...you may be a little disappointed.  All the press release really says is that they were cast for characters created specifically for the film.  Meaning they don't already have a comic book counterpart.  Either way, it's really nice to hear some sort of official information on this film, considering how quiet things have been lately on the upcoming DC Superhero flick:

13 Tie-In Toys That Look Nothing Like They Were Supposed To

31 March 2014 3:08 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

http://www.superpunch.net/2012/01/worst-action-figure-ever.html

Before the wave of smartphones, apps and video games, children obsessed over plastic toys sandwiched into moulds and cardboard boxes. Boys would ask Santa nicely for G.I. Joe and concoct their next military take-down, while girls would dream of brushing Barbie’s lustrous golden hair and attempt to smear their mum’s lipstick or blusher all over the poor doll’s face. Sometimes siblings swapped toys and imagined a new world where Barbie ditched Ken for a whirlwind romance with Stretch Armstrong, later to be found wrapped in a sweet embrace, to then take off on her horse with Polly Pocket strapped down in her luggage – though, much to Polly’s chagrin.

But the toy market isn’t just for children nowadays and it isn’t dominated by great companies such as Mattel, Hasbro or Toy Biz either. The collectible action figure market has »

Batman vs Superman costume designer on new superhero outfits

13 March 2014 3:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Batman vs Superman costume designer Michael Wilkinson has discussed his approach to the iconic superhero outfits.

Wilkinson, who has worked with the blockbuster's director on 300, Watchmen and Man of Steel, said creating big screen superhero suits "all comes down to the crotch. And if you're doing a female superhero, the bust".

"You have to present things in an appealing way but something that's not too confronting and has the right tone for the film. It's something where you have to use all of your costuming skills to find that balance," Wilkinson told Esquire.

The Oscar-nominee hinted that Ben Affleck's outfit won't feature nipples, which were derided by fans on the Val Kilmer and George Clooney costumes, and also spoke about the potential unveiling of the new suit.

"I know last time when we worked on Man of Steel, we released an image of the Superman suit well before the movie was released, »

Birds Eye View Gala Screening – Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines

7 March 2014 4:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The popular Birds Eye View Film Festival (now in its 12th year) is back again this April. Dedicated to showcasing work by female film-makers from around the world, there’s a special Gala screening to tie with International Women’s Day this Saturday. The BFI Southbank are screening the super entertaining documentary, Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines.

This informative and reverential hour-long film uses the famous DC character as a springboard to tackle modern feminism in a wider context. Using some nice pop art-infused comic book graphics to tell her story, director Kristy Guevara-Flanagan has gathered together a number of key figures as interview subjects, including 70s TV Wonder Woman Lynda Carter, and renowned political activist and women’s liberation movement figurehead, Gloria Steinem.

Created in the early 40s (seemingly as a response to both the desires of female comic fans and a propaganda-led, fascist-fighting device) Wonder Woman »

'Batman vs Superman': what's with the casting choices?

6 February 2014 9:50 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot to Jesse Eisenberg, the casting on this movie has definitely swerved the obvious

• More on Man of Steel 2

If there's one conclusion to be drawn from recent events surrounding the forthcoming "Batman vs Superman" movie, it's that Zack Snyder and David S Goyer don't give a monkeys whether fans agree with their casting decisions. First there was Ben Affleck as Batman, a choice that proved about as popular as New Coke when it was announced in September. Next there was little-known Israeli actor Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, a svelte, gazelle-like actor for a role traditionally handed to someone with the vital statistics of a Barbie doll. And now we have Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, a character the world at large had imagined being played by someone who looked rather more like … well, Bryan Cranston.

Since that announcement last week, it has »

The Flickering Myth Reaction to Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Batman vs. Superman

2 February 2014 2:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team sit down to discuss Jesse Eisenberg's casting as Lex Luthor in Batman vs. Superman...

Let's be honest, who saw this one coming? Jesse Eisenberg is playing Lex Luthor is Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman, set for release in 2016, while Jeremy Irons will play Alfred Pennyworth.

But what do our writers think? Here's the latest Flickering Myth reaction on Eisenberg's casting...

Chris Cooper: Well bloody hell.

Scott J Davis: Get the Irons thing, that's great casting. Eisenberg is a train wreck casting. Then again, same was said of Ledger... The real "villain" of the piece is Snyder in my book. Dude couldn't direct a Yellow Pages advert...

Helen Murdoch: Eisenberg is the same in everything! Wasn't going to watch this anyway, but wow!

Anthony Donovan Stokes: Thank God they got a good actor

Gary Collinson: I just can't see how I'll enjoy »

Jesse Eisenberg is Lex Luthor and 'Batman vs. Superman' officially has our full attention

31 January 2014 4:10 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Jesse Eisenberg is a great choice for Lex Luthor. Jesse Eisenberg is a terrible choice for Lex Luthor. It sort of depends on what kind of Luthor they’re going for. Eisenberg was great as Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network and he was great as Magical Mark Zuckerberg in Now You See Me, so him joining the still-untitled Man of Steel sequel seems like a net positive.

Of course, Michael Shannon is a great actor, and he spent half of Man of Steel encased in a weird exoskeleton ranting about the genetic codex. Remember the genetic codex? It was »

"Batman Vs Superman" Casts 'Lex Luthor'

31 January 2014 3:19 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Warner Bros has confirmed casting arch-villain 'Lex Luthor in "Batman Vs Superman":

Actor Jesse Eisenberg ("The Social Network") will co-star as 'Lex Luthor' and Jeremy Irons will play 'Alfred' in the new film, according to Warners' Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

"Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman’s rivals," said director Zack Snyder, "his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940. "What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He’s a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions."

Superman/Batman Movie Loses Its Name, Gains New Cast Members

31 January 2014 11:08 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Great casting news comes from Warner Bros. Pictures today, as they announce that Jeremy Irons (The Borgias, Die Hard With a Vengeance) will be playing the role of Alfred and Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) will be Lex Luthor in the upcoming movie formerly known as Batman vs Superman.

That’s right, it’s apparently no longer Batman vs. Superman but is now The Untitled Superman/Batman Movie. Not as catchy, really. Maybe, though, it will be something more in keeping with what looks like a Superman movie with some Batman and Wonder Woman involvement. Note that the release says the script is currently being written. We shall see.

Also please note that there is no mention of Jason Momoa, nor of anyone else playing a villainous role other than Eisenberg as Luthor, but there is confirmation of the return of Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne.

Jesse Eisenberg Cast as Lex Luthor & Jeremy Irons as Alfred in Batman vs. Superman

31 January 2014 10:05 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In perhaps the most interesting piece of casting news in recent memory, Warner Bros. have announced that Jesse Eisenberg has been cast as the infamous Lex Luthor in the upcoming untitled Man of Steel sequel, tentatively referred to as Batman vs. Superman.

And not only that, but the great Jeremy Irons has landed the role of Alfred, played so wonderfully by Michael Caine in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy.

Michael Shannon made an absolutely terrifying villain for Man of Steel as General Zod, and casting Eisenberg as Luthor here is a totally unexpected move. Eisenberg is known for playing characters teetering on the edge of being an antagonist, like Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, but never quite as ruthless as Lex Luthor, and I can’t wait to see what he does with the character.

We had heard late last month that Joaquin Phoenix was being eyed »
