Warner Bros. has again prevailed in the test-of-endurance battle involving Superman rights. On Wednesday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a decision that the family of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel transferred rights to Superman in 2001. As a panel of circuit judges notes, the decision marks the latest in "long-running litigation stemming from the 1938 transfer of the Superman copyright" by Siegel and his colleague Joseph Shuster when they were both struggling comic book creators. At the turn of the century, the heirs of Siegel and Shuster attempted to exploit the "termination" provision of the

With the anticipation building for next month’s release of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, we thought it would be fun to speculate what it would have been like if a version of this film had been made 30 years earlier. How would this project have looked if it was made with Christopher Reeve, Adam West and Lynda Carter?
In 1980, Christopher Reeve--generally considered the best Superman of the big screen--starred in Superman 2, the successful sequel to his earlier blockbuster Superman: The Movie (1978). The box office windfall of that film guaranteed that Superman would fly again on movie screens. (He ultimately made two more sequels.)
Only a year before, Adam West had reprised his career-defining role of Batman in the mini-series Legends of the Super-Heroes (1979). He’d originally portrayed the caped crusader in the TV series Batman, which ran from 1966-1968. West additionally supplied the voice of Batman »

Last week, a new report surfaced that revealed what studios were planning on airing new movie footage during Super Bowl 50. That report claimed that Warner Bros. would be sitting out today's big game, which surprised some fans, especially since their highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25. However, that report did tease that, while there may not be a new trailer during the big game, there may be an ad featuring Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice characters from one of the movie's promotional partners. During today's pre-game coverage, Turkish Airlines unveiled two new ads, announcing that the airline now offers "service" to both Gotham and Metropolis.
One ad features Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne representing Gotham, who is rebuilding his city through a substantial grant from his foundation, with Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor representing Metropolis, which is being rebuilt thanks to Lex's generous donations. »
The Batman v Superman hype train is rolling in faster than a speeding bullet as what is arguably the Last Son of Krypton’s most anticipated on-screen outing draws closer.
Us superhero fanatics are no strangers to hype, but there are times when it leads only to bitter disappointment, as the resulting film flops like Clark Kent under a heavy dose of Kryptonite or, in some cases, never makes it to cinemas at all.
Believe it or not, there are as many Superman movies lost in the depths of Development Hell are there are on Warner Bros’ historic release slate – and fans can only wonder what might have been if some of these rejected ideas had been given the chance to fly.

If you have been living and routinely interacting with other human beings over the last month, you’ve probably heard one or two words involving this year’s Academy Awards and the heated controversy over the startling lack of both films and people of color among the nominees. Personally, I think that the real focus of concern ought to be less on the back end-- awards handed out for films which were financed and/or studio-approved, scheduled for production and filmed perhaps as much as two or three years ago-- and more on addressing the lack of cultural and intellectual and experiential diversity among those who have the power to make the decisions as to what films get made in the first place. This is no sure-fire way to ensure that there will be a richer and more consistent representation of diverse creative voices when it comes time for Hollywood »

Way back in November 2014, it was revealed that composer Hans Zimmer is teaming with Junkie Xl (a.k.a. Tom Holkenberg) to work on the score for Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hans Zimmer will craft the theme for Superman (Henry Cavill), like he did in 2013's Man of Steel, with Junkie Xl working on a new Batman (Ben Affleck) theme. Earlier today, Water Tower Music released the Batman theme, entitled "Men Are Still Good (The Batman Suite), which you can listen to below.
Before taking on the job, Hans Zimmer admitted in September 2013 that he was unsure about taking on this job, because he didn't want to create new Batman music after working on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. Junkie Xl, a.k.a. Tom Holkenborg, most recently composed scores for Mad Max: Fury Road, Black Mass and Point Break, along with the upcoming Deadpool. »
In case you missed the first track released, listen to it below.

Why would you risk life and limb for reality TV? We head to the alps for apres ski with this year’s (surprisingly famous) contestants
Halfway up a mountain in Austria, a ferocious blizzard is blowing, though you wouldn’t know it from the party going on in the rickety log cabin nearby. Inside, Eddie “the Eagle” Edwards is flapping his arms wildly, while Davina McCall rings a comically oversized cowbell. Brian McFadden sits at the bar in fur-lined Lycra, looking like a cross between Buffalo Bill and Mr Motivator. An oompah band parps out the same five-note motif over and over, adding to the sense that this is some Alpine-themed purgatory. Welcome to the set of the Jump, the celebrity winter sports competition, and one of TV’s stranger reality shows.

This highly-anticipated superhero adventure will mark the first time both Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) have been seen on the big screen together in cinematic history. The movie will also introduce Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, »
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 »
Move aside, Marvel! It looks like there's a new player on the scene, and this town may not be big enough for the both of you! That's right, DC Comics' two new upcoming 2016 movies, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, are tracking 500% higher than other superhero competition on all digital and social media outlets. Climbing the Dar-Film leaderboard, these highly-anticipated comic book movies are overshadowing and out-pacing even the epic Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange.
2016 will see plenty of other comic book movies debut as well, including heavyweights Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse from 20th Century Fox. But early digital tracking places DC Comics at the forefront of this intense race, which is based on their standing at the same point pre-release. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently the #1 movie in volume and awareness. Number 2 is Suicide Squad. And standing at Number 3 is, »
Everybody knows the key to being happy in life is to be filthy, disgustingly rich. It appears the easiest way to achieve that dream is to become a beautiful, talented actor and move to L.A., where you can command fees that puny regular folk can only daydream about.
That’s the fantasy anyway, but in reality, very few actors will ever reach that level of success, and even fewer will manage to stay there. For those that do, luxury yachts or private jets will be taking them down to the shops. Even in these frugal times, the most successful actors are able to command fees that would make Donald Trump sick, and they’re (usually) worth the money from a box-office standpoint.
There seems to be a fascination among the public about the fees star names can demand, and the last decade or so has seen some »

In just under two months, Warner Bros. will kick off their DC Comics Extended Universe (Dceu) with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is quickly becoming one of this year's most anticipated movies. While we still have to wait and see how it performs at the box office, a new report from BoxOffice.com is projecting that the movie will have an opening weekend of $154 million, with a $388 million projected domestic gross.
This highly-anticipated superhero adventure will mark the first time both Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) have been seen on the big screen together in cinematic history. The movie will also introduce Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, whose stand alone movie is currently in production and set to hit theaters on June 23, 2017. It has also been rumored that this movie will introduce the rest of the Justice League, before Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2 hits theaters in 2017 and 2019, respectively. »
Recently, Empire Magazine released their newest March 2016 edition, which delivers a lot of new, official photos from the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action movie. In addition to that, it also gives us new details about certain things that will go down in the movie, and they sound quite interesting. For starters, we're going to see Superman try to expose Batman's dark methods of doing things in his Clark Kent newspaper articles rather than try to bully him as Superman. Superman will form the opinion that Batrman is just as bad as the criminals he's thrown into Arkham, because of his dark methods. We're going to see Clark and Lois shacking up together in a Metropolis apartment. At some point during the movie, the Batmobile is going to receive some repair work. Henry Cavill's Clark Kent won't be doing that whole clumsy act like Christopher Reeve »

Recently we updated you on the status of the upcoming third solo Wolverine film, which is slated to be actor Hugh Jackman's final outing as the world's most famous X-Man. Here at Comics on Film, we tend to think pretty highly of Jackman's turn as the ol' Canucklehead, especially when we ranked him as the second greatest superhero performer ever, second only to Christopher Reeve's iconic turn as Superman. As the new Wolverine film gets ready to roll -- with a soon-to-start shooting schedule and a release date slated for March of 2017 -- it still remains largely shrouded in mystery. We don't really have much of an idea concerning where the story will take Jackman for his final ride as Logan, or whether or not it will...

Since the events of Man of Steel, Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent has gone through some big changes. The latest issue of Empire actually reveals that in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Clark Kent is living with Lois Lane and working his way up the ranks of The Daily Planet, but as Superman, the world remains unsure whether he’s their saviour or tyrant.
However, while the public may have either embraced or turned on him, it definitely sounds like Superman has come a long way as a superhero.
“He’s more used to this gig, doing his best to save as many lives as he can. He is no longer frantic. He’s no longer a wet behind the ears kind of superhero,” says Cavill.
As for Superman’s view on Batman, the actor explains that Clark initially hopes to use his position as a journalist to expose »
