Snyder Justifies The "Man of Steel" Ending

5 July 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Several years on, people are still debating the ending of Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" and the sheer amount of destruction levelled on the fictional city of Metropolis by the fight between Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod (Michael Shannon) along with the villain's 'world engine'.

Though numerous films feature similar massive city-levelling damage on this scale, including Marvel's "The Avengers," the movie's more serious and grounded tone made the mass carnage more impactful and thus horrific to witness. The controversy has been enough that the third act of this Summer's Marvel film "Avengers: Age of Ultron" goes out of its way to show its superhero team saving civilians as the villain carries out his massive plan of destruction.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly for their Comic-Con issue, Zack Snyder has addressed the backlash and was reportedly surprised that people were so shocked:

"I was surprised because that's the thesis of Superman for me, »

Bad Ideas: Films We’re Glad Never Got Made

4 July 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While we often lament some of the films that end up stuck in development Hell, never to become realized on the big screen, there are some films we should all be glad never came to fruition.  

Sometimes they don’t get it! We all know that the film industry is a business and they want to make money, but Hollywood doesn’t always realize that the best way to do that is to make a good film. Sometimes, Hollywood’s habit of taking a known property and stretching them out to absurd proportions proves that they just don’t get the point. Fortunately, there are times when someone recognizes a bad idea and puts on the brakes. Below is a list of 14 films where someone was smart enough to notice that they were making a pile of trash and threw in the towel.

'Superman Lives' Video Shows Nicolas Cage Costume Test

3 July 2015 5:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Long before Henry Cavill's portrayal of Superman in 2013's Man of Steel and 2016's Batman vs Superman, Nicolas Cage was set to play Clark Kent in director Tim Burton's Superman Lives, although it never got off the ground. Over the past few years, concept art images and photos have surfaced showing a long-haired Nicolas Cage in the Superman suit. Today we have a clip from the upcoming documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, which reveals footage from a costume test, where the actor is seen trying on the iconic Man of Steel suit.

Along with the brief costume test video, the clip also features director Jon Schnepp interviewing costume designer Colleen Atwood and Tim Burton's assistant Derek Frey. Jon Schnepp clears up rumors of a "bio-suit" that this version of Superman would have worn. Many thought that it was a bio-suit after photos leaked of the "rainbow-colored" costume, »

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - 'Lex Luthor'

3 July 2015 6:12 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek a new official image of actor Jesse Eisenberg as criminal master-mind 'Lex Luthor', plus a behind-the-scenes look at him, with and without his wig and hairpiece, on the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" follow-up "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

The original 'Alexander Joseph "Lex" Luthor', created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, debuted in "Action Comics" #23 (April 1940), with a full head of red hair...

...described as "...a power-mad, evil scientist" of high intelligence and incredible technological prowess.

Luthor's ultimate goal of killing 'Superman' was to be a stepping stone to his evil domination of the universe.

In subsequent comic books, Luthor became hairless as the result of an artist's mistake. A 1960 story by Jerry Siegel expanded upon Luthor's origin and motivations, revealing him to be a childhood friend of Superman's who lost his hair when a fire destroyed his laboratory. »

Batman and Wonder Woman know each other’s secret identities in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

If you’ve not had your fill of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice photos and the like (see here, here and here), we’ve got another little nugget of information for you via EW’s coverage. Turns out, Batman and Wonder Woman are rather familiar with each other in the movie to the point where they even know their secret identities.

Speaking of the photo released yesterday of Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince dancing, Ben Affleck said, “I love the fact that there was this Thomas Crowne Affair, Bond-y sexy scene that they wrote about two people who are pretending to be two different people who each know the secrets of the other person.”

Affleck also added in the interview that his Batman is, “at the end of his run, and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it”

‘Batman v Superman’ Photos: Bruce Wayne Meets Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor Has Hair

2 July 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A week before the cast of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” takes the stage at San Diego Comic-Con, fans can get a closer look at the Warner Bros. film thanks to new photos that debuted in Entertainment Weekly, which reveal Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) out of costume as their alter-egos Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince, as well as Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor sporting a mane of ginger hair — a stark contrast to Eisenberg’s bald appearance in a previously released photo.

Affleck also offered some insight into his version of the Dark Knight, a character that has been through many iterations on the big and small screen over the years, from Adam West to Christian Bale.

“He’s at the end of his run and maybe the end of his life. There’s this sort of world-weariness to it,” Affleck told EW. “He’s »

Wonder Woman And Batman Know Each Other's Secret Identities In Batman v Superman

2 July 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

DC Comics fans are already drawing allusions to the above image and the animated Justice League episode Maid of Honor from Bruce Timm.   And just like in the episode, Batman and Wonder Woman may be playing as if they're strangers for the benefit of those surrounding them, but they actually know that the other moonlights as a crime fighting superhero. Here's what EW reports: Batman and Wonder Woman have a meeting of alter-egos as Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince parry and flirt at a high-society function. “I love the fact that there was this Thomas Crowne Affair, Bond-y sexy scene that they wrote about two people who are pretending to be two different people who each know the secrets of the other person,” says Ben Affleck. *Photo credit: Clay Enos Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in theaters on March 25, 2016.

Wonder Woman And Batman Know Each Other’s Secret Identities In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Earlier today, EW dropped some official stills from next year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (which you can check out above), highlighting an intimate moment between Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) at a high-society gathering. And according to Affleck, that’s not just a chance encounter – the two know each other both as seemingly normal people and as gifted crimefighters.

“I love the fact that there was this Thomas Crowne Affair, Bond-y sexy scene that they wrote about two people who are pretending to be two different people who each know the secrets of the other person,” Affleck told EW of the scene, which is reminiscent of a scene from one of the Batman animated television series in which the pair come together and dance (as well as the scene in which Wayne and Catwoman had a flirtatious interaction in »

Can You Spot the Difference Between Wonder Woman's Costume Compared to Batman & Supermanc

2 July 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

People didn't necessarily agree with me when I said I thought Wonder Woman's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice looked ridiculous. I know comic book fans feel the films should be loyal to their origins, but can you honestly look at the cover of Entertainment Weekly below and tell me you don't see a double standard in the way the characters are presentedc At the very least, Scarlett Johanson's Black Widow in The Avengers is given a full-body, skin tight suit, similar to what Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) are wearing here so why wouldn't it make sense for Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) sport a similarly protective outfitc If you believe the films should remain loyal to the comics... fine. I could argue against that merely saying we are living in a different era from that which the character was created, but instead I will simply ask you consider the alternative. »

'Batman v Superman': New Look at Wonder Woman and Lex Luthor

2 July 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Comic-Con 2015 is exactly one week away. And that means EW is bringing us their exclusive Comic Con preview, which has a ton of new photos and info on all the movies heading to San Diego. They kick things off with their cover reveal, which features Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's holy trinity of Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). We also get several new photos, most notable for offering a look at Princess Diana of Themyscira in her civilian dress, dancing with Bruce Wayne (are they romantically involved), and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor before he loses all of his hair. There is also an interview with the cast and crew, including this tidbit about how director Zack Snyder first pitch the idea of having these two DC Comics titans face off against each other. The movie started as an end-credit Easter egg. »

Superman is Jesus and Lex Luthor has hilarious hair in new 'Batman v Superman' images

2 July 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This morning Entertainment Weekly unveiled our best look yet into the world Zack Snyder is building with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” The crop of photos covers everything Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor to Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman’s alter ego Diana Prince to a Batman so emo even Lego Batman would be like “Dude, chill.” First up, a still image as Superman that evokes Jesus imagery. In case the metaphor wasn’t sinking in yet.   We’ve also got a Lex Luthor with flowing locks that would make Fabio jealous. Does this mean Lex going bald is a plot point? Probably.   Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince engage in some upper-class recreational activities. Is this their meet-cute or has Wonder Woman’s alter ego been among humanity for quite some time by the opening credits?   Ben Affleck gets some direction from director Zack Snyder.   Of course, no set »
