Zack Snyder teases Wonder Woman’s role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, hints at Brainiac as a future villain

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Just a few days ago thanks to Entertainment Weekly we got a bunch of new images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (see here and here) and as part of their ongoing exclusive the magazine has been speaking to director Zack Snyder.

In the extensive interview amongst other things Snyder teased that Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman wouldn’t just be a cameo and that her role would be more important than everybody thinks:

“She plays a super-important part. In a lot of ways, she’s the gateway drug to 
the rest of the 
Justice League.”

Considering we already know that Dawn of Justice is the lead-in to the long awaited Justice League movie – and other solo DC superhero flicks – then this little piece of information shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise. Still it’s nice to hear it from Snyder anyway. The “gateway drug” comment »

Ben Affleck on his initial reaction to being offered Batman, and the difference between DC and Marvel movies

3 July 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday Entertainment Weekly unloaded a batch of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice images as part of its Comic-Con issue, giving us a peek at the hotly-anticipated DC movie ahead of next week’s Sdcc panel [check them out here, here and here]. Well, now they’ve posted some comments from The Dark Knight himself Ben Affleck, who described how he felt when he was first offered the cape and cowl.

“My first reaction was ‘Are you sure?’ At the time I was 40, 41, and had just finished Argo, and I felt like ‘This seems like a strange way to get to Batman.’ But Zack convinced me… I thought if I was going to direct a movie like this, which I would like to do at some point, I need to have something of a refresher course of how these movies are done.”

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

3 July 2015 1:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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”

Jesse Eisenberg talks Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

19 June 2015 12:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back when it was announced that Jesse Eisenberg was set to play Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Internet didn’t take too kindly to it. However, a photo of the actor in the role did change a few minds. In an interview with MTV, Jesse Eisenberg has been talking about the role and if there are any comparisons to Gene Hackman’s portrayal in Superman: The Motion Picture.

“It’s a really great character. It was written by this guy, Chris Terrio, he’s a phenomenal writer,” he said. “He comes from a place of character. He loves my character in the same way I love my character. He put a lot of work into it. It’s a great character. There’s an emotional core to character. It’s not a silly villainous character.”

“It is an entirely different thing, »

'Carol,' 'Inside Out' and 10 other Cannes 2015 films ready for Oscar's closeup

25 May 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes — Awards season is no stranger to Cannes. From "Amour" to "The Tree of Life" to "No Country For Old Men" to "The Pianist" to "The Piano," every year there seems to be a player or two that pokes its head out from the crowded Croisette and into Oscar's waiting arms. This year's potential players may not include a true Best Picture contender, but they are evidence enough that the festival's presence will be felt throughout the upcoming campaign. Before you start second guessing which films have a shot and which don't, remember the actions of this year's Hollywood-influenced competition jury. The Coen brothers, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sienna Miller and the Guillermo Del Toro, among others, awarded some interesting prizes that will absolutely affect the race. The critical kudos are important, too (as are those of us who cover the beat on a regular basis and took in this year's slate »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Hanks and Ryan Take Forever to Realize That Men are from Seattle and Women from Baltimore

24 May 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Sleepless in Seattle': Meg Ryan 'Sleepless in Seattle' review: Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks in an affair to forget In Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colors: Red, the last installment of his "Three Colors" trilogy, the word "magic" is never bandied about. No need to. Magic is just about everywhere in that lyrical tale about love and fate. On the other hand, the word "magic" seems to crop up every other minute in writer-director Nora Ephron's Sleepless in Seattle. Ephron and fellow Oscar-nominated screenwriters Jeff Arch and David S. Ward (plus an uncredited Delia Ephron) were apparently trying to create screen magic through the power of suggestion. If you repeat it often enough... Following in the footsteps of Claude Lelouch's 1974 hit And Now My Love, with added touches borrowed from Leo McCarey's 1957 romance classic An Affair to Remember (itself a remake of McCarey's own 1939 Love Affair), Nora Ephron »
