Michael Shannon backtracks on Zod’s “flipper” hands for Batman v Superman, namedrops Doomsday

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of weeks ago Michael Shannon offered up a few intriguing words on his role in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, suggesting that he had “flippers” for hands. Naturally this sparked a lot of debate amongst fans, and Shannon has now played down his comments in an interview with The Daily Beast, and in doing so he may have just inadvertently confirmed the inclusion of Doomsday in the DC superhero ensemble.

“Somebody was asking me about this in New York and I made up some ridiculous bullshit answer about how my character Zod has flippers, and this went viral on the Internet or something and people have been asking me about that,” states Shannon. “That is so obviously a complete bullshit story, right? But people took it seriously.”

“I wasn’t there [on set],” he continues. “It’s a really awkward situation—I’m in the trailer »

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.

“It was a tough decision at the time because it was going to create a hole in 2015,” Tsujihara tells The Hollywood Reporter. “But it was absolutely the right decision for the franchise, »

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?'” 

He finished the story by saying that »

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. »

How actor Cliff Curtis avoids playing 'repetitive stereotypes'

17 August 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Māori actor relishes a starring role in Walking Dead spinoff after a career filled with highs that include Scorsese and lows – The Piano

In 1999, Cliff Curtis hit a kind of American cinematic jackpot: in a single year, he had roles in Michael Mann’s The Insider, David O Russell’s Three Kings and Martin Scorsese’s Bringing Out the Dead.

“Scorsese talks tens to the dozen. He’s amazing. Like a machine gun,” the actor reminisces about the experience, making gun noises, during interviews in Wellington and his hometown, Rotorua, New Zealand. “Rattling off. Like Add.”

Henry Cavill talks Warner Bros’ plans for the DC Cinematic Universe, “They’re not thinking from movie to movie”

12 August 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The DC Cinematic Universe has faced an uphill battle against critics, who have either compared them to Marvel or have claimed they ‘don’t know what they’re doing’. But someone who reckons the studio has their finger on the pulse is Superman himself, Henry Cavill.

“There’s a big plan in place at WB for the whole DC franchise,” the actor told Uproxx while promoting The Man From U.N.C.L.E. “So, all of this stuff ties in. They’re not thinking from movie to movie, they’re thinking from a big tent pole type thing and each story has its own story, which is attached to the major issue. Yeah, there’s a big plan.”

Rumour: Wonder Woman fights Doomsday in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

12 August 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: possible spoilers below…

Another rumour has come from the world of Heroic Hollywood this evening as the former El Mayimbe is reporting that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will feature a one-on-one showdown between Wonder Woman and Doomsday.

“During the fight with Doomsday, Wonder Woman draws that awesome sword of hers, swings it at Doomsday and manages to chop off the hand of the beast! Kind of reminds me when I was a kid and saw Perseus cut off Calibos’ hand in Clash of The Titans. Wonder Woman is badass and got skills but don’t count Doomsday out! He is still in the fight! Complications ensue because a Bone Blade grows back where Doomsday’s hand used to be! In screenwriting that’s called a reversal. Now Doomsday got a blade of his own.What happens next? Find out when Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice drops in theaters”

If there is one thing to be said about Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s that he will be a rather moody man. Never is that more true than in this new image from the movie, which sees the parentless billionaire roaming the grounds of his family estate.

Jena Malone and Callan Mulvey’s Batman v Superman roles revealed?

30 July 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a pretty good week for DC fans, what with some new images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice [see here and here] and comments from the likes of Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck. And now we have a couple of rumours to chew on, concerning the identity of the characters played by Jena Malone and Callan Mulvey

According to Latino-Review, Jena Malone – who has been heavily rumoured to play Carrie Kelley, the female Robin from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – is actually portraying Barbara Godon, who may or may not be in her Batgirl or Oracle guises. Meanwhile, Heroic Hollywood is claiming that Callan Mulvey will appear as the DC villain Anatoli Knyazev, a.k.a. KGBeast, who has long been rumoured to make an appearance.

As always, take these with a pinch of salt, particularly given the sources…

Rumour: Is this who will be playing Robin in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

23 July 2015 12:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was rumoured during the production of the movie that The Boy Wonder would not be joining us for adventures in the DC Cinematic Universe due to being a bit dead. Those rumours were seemingly confirmed via the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with the shot of a Robin suit with Joker scrawl in the Batcave.

Heroic Hollywood are now reporting the rumour that we could see Robin in action, including his death scene with The Joker, via a flashback scene. Not only that, but the rumour-hound is claiming he will be played by Eli Snyder, the son of director Zack Snyder.

Eli has featured his father’s movies previously, having played a young Leonidas in 300 and young Rorschach in Watchman.

Heroic Hollywood note that this is far from being confirmed, so take this one with a pinch of salt for the time being.
