Textless version of the Jason Momoa Aquaman character image from Batman v Superman released, first trailer coming over Easter?

26 March 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday marked exactly one year to the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Warner Bros. celebrating by giving us our first look at a bald Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and now EW (via Cbm) has released an official version of the Jason Momoa Aquaman image, minus the ‘Unite the Seven’ tagline…

On a side note, we’ve heard a whisper today that the first trailer for Batman v Superman will be with us on April 4th. This is unconfirmed, and there may be nothing to it so please don’t take it as gospel. Our money is on the first trailer coming with Mad Max: Fury Road. But you never know…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on March 25th 2016 and sees Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane »

First look at Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

25 March 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Though we know it’s setting the scene for the larger DC cinematic universe and have a good idea who’ll be in it, there isn’t that much information around Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Up until today, we didn’t even know if Lex Luthor would have hair or not. But now we do!

Just released by Entertainment Weekly, here’s the first photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor:

He definitely look intense, plus he’s got previous experience from The Social Network playing a billionaire who isn’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers.

Eisenberg is set to debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and is also rumoured to be a part of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad in 2016.

Gal Gadot responds to criticism of her Wonder Woman casting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

22 March 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Robot Underdog, Gal Gadot has been speaking about her upcoming role as Wonder Woman in next year’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and more specifically, the criticism levied towards her casting as the Amazon Princess.

“They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small. hen I was younger I would take criticism really hard. But now it mostly amused me. The true amazons had one boob so it won’t bother them in their archery. So it’s not going to be like real amazons. We always try to make everyone happy but we can’t… After they asked me here, In Israel, if I have eating disorders and why am I so skinny, they said my head was too big and my body was like a broomstick I can take anything. It’s just empty talk. I »

The Noteworthy: 11 March 2015

11 March 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Monday was International Women's Days, and to mark the occasion, Sight & Sound complied a list of "vital female voice(s) in film criticism":"Cinema would be a very different place without seminal figures like Iris Barry, Pauline Kael, Laura Mulvey and Susan Sontag. This collection is a reminder of their importance but it also looks beyond them too. Asking 25 writers and curators to each nominate a female critic and choose a piece of their writing has amassed a surprising array of different voices: from 1920s teenage gossip columnist Nerina Shute to the first regular broadsheet female film reviewer C.A. Lejeune, Sight & Sound’s august editor of 34 years Penelope Houston, zombie-loving trade reviewer Marjorie Bilbow and the feminist activist and author bell hooks, as well as unlikely cinema analysts like novelist Hilary Mantel."Also of note, the April issue of Sight & Sound is out now.

Remembering Actress Wright: Made Oscar History in Unmatched Feat to This Day

4 March 2015 9:02 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright movies: Actress made Oscar history Teresa Wright, best remembered for her Oscar-winning performance in the World War II melodrama Mrs. Miniver and for her deceptively fragile, small-town heroine in Alfred Hitchcock's mystery-drama Shadow of a Doubt, died at age 86 ten years ago – on March 6, 2005. Throughout her nearly six-decade show business career, Wright was featured in nearly 30 films, dozens of television series and made-for-tv movies, and a whole array of stage productions. On the big screen, she played opposite some of the most important stars of the '40s and '50s. It's a long list, including Bette Davis, Greer Garson, Gary Cooper, Myrna Loy, Ray Milland, Fredric March, Jean Simmons, Marlon Brando, Dana Andrews, Lew Ayres, Cornel Wilde, Robert Mitchum, Spencer Tracy, Joseph Cotten, and David Niven. Also of note, Teresa Wright made Oscar history in the early '40s, when she was nominated for each of her first three movie roles. »

Hans Zimmer briefly talks Batman v Superman score, writing individual themes for each hero

25 February 2015 12:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Catching up with Hans Zimmer at the Oscars this past weekend, MTV managed to grab a few comments from the composer about his work on the upcoming DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, asking him whether he plans to develop individual themes for each of the heroes.

“I’m trying, I’ll put it that way,” states Zimmer, who has previously stated that he plans to tackle Superman, whilst handing Batman over to Junkie Xl. “We’re in early days. But yes, of course, ideally that’s what you want to do.”

Zimmer was also asked if Warner Bros. has him down to score any future DC movies, with the composer responding that: “Look, the studio is going to hedge its bet, if I ruin this one…. And at the same time you have to remember I come from ten years of doing Batman, so it’s really »

Five Film Composers that Hollywood Needs Back

12 February 2015 4:35 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hollywood has no shortage of talented composers crafting mostly serviceable tunes for the next young adult literary adaptation or prestige awards tearjerker. But for every auteur like Hans Zimmer and John Williams, you have musical yes men pounding out ominous notes in anticipation of the next horror movie jump scare or making ratatat noise to underscore a superhero chase scene. The film world screams for diverse sounds, but is often left wanting when scores become interchangeable to feed the Hollywood machine. The current film decade is no different from any other in terms of talent, mediocrity, and ingenuity, but could always use a boost from professionals who bring specificity to the table. These five forgotten or diminished artists, each among them with varied yet singular skills, are screaming to be brought back into the Hollywood fold to create their signature sounds.

Man of Steel’s Christina Wren returning as Carrie Farris in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

10 February 2015 11:43 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like we can add another returning player from Man of Steel to the cast of next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Christina Wren – who played the United States Air Force officer Carrie Farris – revealing to Pittsburgh Magazine that she’ll be back in the hotly-anticipated DC ensemble.

“The casting director got in touch with me. I got to know her a bit through the first project, Man of Steel because she had to hunt me down a little bit; she just called me directly, which is always nice. It’s more personal. We filmed mostly in August; I was out in Detroit. Back a little bit in September. I can tell you that I think it’s going to be badass! They’re just such an awesome team. The bits that I was on set for look fantastic; everyone in it is fantastic. It »

Jason Momoa talks Aquaman, says he wont be blonde

29 January 2015 1:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jason Momoa was announced last year as playing Aquaman in the DC Cinematic Universe, and while his first appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still over a year a way, fans are keen to get any little bit of information they can about the film.

During a panel at the Sundance Film Festival, Momoa has offered up some new details, responding to a question from a fan about what we can expected by stating: “Well, things are going to be a little different. When I first went in I met with Zack [Snyder] and his idea is pretty amazing. When I went in, he told me … my jaw kind of dropped. My jaw doesn’t normally drop. What he has planned for the DC world and for … definitely for Aquaman is something that, you know… I think I was brought on for a certain reason and they got »

Is this the line-up for Guillermo Del Toro’s Justice League Dark?

26 January 2015 11:24 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The last we heard about Guillermo Del Toro’s Justice League Dark was that the script was finished and it would be part of the DC Cinematic Universe. Although, we still have no release date.

In an previous interview, Del Toro stated that the line-up for his Justice League Dark movie would include Swamp Thing, Demon, Deadman and Zatana. Well according to Latino-Review, there could be a slight change to that line-up.

El Mayimbe (who has blocked us on Twitter so thanks to Cbm for the heads up) claims that the line-up will be John Constantine, Zatana, Deadman and Jason Blood.

Del Toro is also working on Pacific Rim 2 with Zak Penn, so there is every chance that Justice League Dark could be on the development table for some time yet.

Before we get to Justice League Dark, we need to kick things off with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice »

Is Michael Shannon in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

24 January 2015 4:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rumours have resurfaced again about Michael Shannon having a role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Shannon played General Zod in Man of Steel but due to his character’s fate in that film, it was thought unlikely that he would return for the latest instalment in the series. However, Shannon was spotted alongside Henry Cavill in Chicago a few months back, and now a new report from Comic Book is claiming that General Zod will appear in the new movie, with his body serving as the basis for Doomsday.

“His corpse is stolen (or perhaps just acquired, given his military contacts in most versions of the modern mythology) by Lex Luthor and experimented on, presumably in the hopes of finding a weakness to exploit against Superman. In the course of his experimenting, we’ve been told that he “triggers the Doomsday genome,” causing the corpse to reanimate as »

Jesse Eisenberg talks reprising Lex Luthor role after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

23 January 2015 12:37 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With his latest film, The End of the Tour, premiering at this month’s Sundance Film Festival, Variety caught up with Jesse Eisenberg about the film, but also dropped in a few questions about another small indie film he has coming out next year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While Eisenberg didn’t divulge too much, particularly about his hairstyle for the film, the actor did suggest that he would be more than happy to reprise the role in any future DC film, let alone a Batman v Superman sequel.

“I would love to,” says Eisenberg. “It’s a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play.”

Rumours are abound that Luthor is set to appear in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, whether in a cameo or as the film’s big bad. But while he has obvious excitement about the role and the forthcoming film, »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice crew shirt reminds us that “giants walk the Earth”

20 January 2015 2:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new image of a Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice crew member shirt has been making waves online today, and for good reason.

Not only does it offer up a great illustrated look at an armored Batman facing off with Henry Cavill’s Superman in what’s very reminiscent of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, but it uses a quote from that seminal comic as well: “…Remind them that giants walk the Earth.”

Interestingly, the quote is actually only part of what Miller originally wrote: “We must not remind them that giants walk the Earth.” If the actual quote is in Batman V Superman at all, perhaps Snyder is paraphrasing or reworking it. Or maybe it’s just included here because it looks badass on the T-shirt.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice choreographer talks fight scenes, promises they will be better than The Dark Knight

20 January 2015 5:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With rumours floating around the Internet that the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be hitting the world next month (attached to Jupiter Ascending), the wait to see The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel square off is almost upon us.  But how will the fight go down?

Warner Bros., they are very strict, so I can’t say much, but it’s no surprise if I say Batman and Superman come face-to-face in the movie,” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice choreographer Guillermo Grispo told Los Andes Diario (translated by Batman News). “It’s one of the most important sequences and I was actively involved in the design of the fight: the exchange of punches and the physical movement were put together with my partner Ryan Watson.”

“There’s a thought that Batman has no chance, that [Superman] will squash him like a bug,” he continues. »
