New image of Ben Affleck’s Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

24 July 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We got a good look at Batman’s cape and cowl from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on display at the San Diego Comic-Con International today [see here], and now to coincide with the Batman 75th anniversary panel at Comic-Con, DC Entertainment has given us a brand new image of Ben Affleck wearing it!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on May 6th 2016, with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons (The Borgias) as Alfred Pennyworth and Holly Hunter (The Piano), Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an Empire), Tao Okamoto »

The Cape and Cowl from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice spotted at Sdcc

24 July 2014 2:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over at SuperHeroHype they’ve had the opportunity to get some snaps of a very cool stand on display at the San Diego Comic-Con. The cape and cowl of the new Batsuit from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! Here it is…

 

It all looks pretty standard to be honest, with the biggest difference to previous suits being the shorter ears. It is very intriguing that they’ve gone back to a one piece design, as opposed to the overtly flexible neck and head pieces of the last Batsuit seen in the The Dark Knight Trilogy. It doesn’t appear to have much give, but maybe technology has come on since and we’ll have a Batman that has both the iconic silhouette and the ability to back out of the drive a little easier.

Michael Keaton's Birdman Will Close This Year's New York Film Festival

21 July 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This year's New York Film Festival is quickly stacking up to be a can't miss cinematic event. Just days after announcing the selection of David Fincher's Gone Girl and Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice, Nyff has revealed the film for their closing night will be none other than Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman. THR reports Birdman will make its New York premiere on October 12th at the 52nd New York Film Festival, five days ahead of its theatrical release in the United States. Prior honorees of the closing night festivities included Jane Campion's The Piano, Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and Spike Jonze's Her. As you might be able to tell by former films that shared the honor of snagging the prestigious festival's closing night, the movies selected for the New York Film Festival are typically titles expected to thrive in award season.

Images from the Corktown set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

18 July 2014 4:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With filming on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice heading to Corktown, Detroit in a couple of weeks, the website TheBananaDoc has posted a few images from the set, showing construction of a devastated section of Gotham or Metropolis. There’s nothing too exciting, but hopefully we’ll get to see the cast out in the open once filming on the set gets underway…

No Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at San Diego Comic-Con?

16 July 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week Warner Bros. announced its line-up for the San Diego Comic-Con International, with the eagerly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice absent from a schedule that includes the likes of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, Jupiter Ascending, Into the Storm and Godzilla. Of course, there’s every chance that WB could be keeping its big superhero offering as a surprise, but now stills photographer Clay Enos has indicated that we might have to wait until 2015 before we get to see something from the DC ensemble.

A few days back, Enos teased a “historic” photoshoot on Twitter, with speculation suggesting that WB could be preparing a promotional photo of the Trinity – Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) – to debut at Sdcc. However, Enos has now stated that we should expect WB to hold things back until next year’s Comic-Con:

Gary Oldman says Batman v Superman has “got big shoes to fill”

15 July 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Zack Snyder currently rebooting The Dark Knight as part of Warner Bros.’ big DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Yahoo! Movies caught up with Gary Oldman during a promotional interview for his new film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, during which they managed to get a few comments from The Dark Knight Trilogy star about his thoughts on the latest incarnation of Batman, and it appears he’s quite skeptical of it:

“They want to keep it going. Of course they do. But, it’s Superman yeah? Batman and Superman together? We shall see. The thing about Christopher Nolan, there was some grounding of reality to it. In our trilogy, and as fantastical and as big as The Joker was, it was based [on reality]. We could relate to it. But now we’ve got Batman and we’ve got a guy who can fly who’s an alien? »

Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters

12 July 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The old saying goes is that if you want to win an Academy Award then the best way is to undertake playing a disabled part or portraying a famous personality in a biopic. In some cases, actors have accomplished both themes and reached their Oscar-attaining goals (see Patty Duke in The Miracle Worker or Daniel-Day Lewis in My Left Foot for instance).

In Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters we will look at the top movie characters that became Academy Award-winning figures within their films. Interestingly, there have been a couple of performers that were real-life disabled individuals that convincingly embodied their fictional disabled alter egos (see Harold Russell from The Best Days of Our Lives or Marlee Matlin from Children of a Lesser God).

Anyway, this selection of Able to Disable: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Disability-Bound Movie Characters are (in alphabetical order according to film title): »

New rumours about Batman’s costume in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

11 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Another day, another Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rumour. Yesterday we heard that Doomsday designs have been spotted around the offices and today, we have another source who has something to say about Batman’s suit for the epic team-up.

A source by the name of “shoeless” has told Batman-on-Film that The Dark Knight’s costume is “steel grey and black. It’s mostly made of foam rubber even though it appears to be ‘cloth.’ It has the muscles built into the suit (which I think is supposed to be “armor” under the ‘cloth’ bodysuit.”

This also ties in with what Kevin Smith had to say about the Batsuit when the first image of Batfleck landed online.

Doomsday getting ready for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

10 July 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He was featured in the supposedly fake script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (read our review and breakdown here), but this rumour hasn’t surfaced from that script, but rather sources for Bleeding Cool, who claim that Doomsday designs have been spotted.

In DC Comics lore, Doomsday is the character that killed Superman in the 1992 in the Doomsday! series which is now more commonly known as Death of Superman. In the fake script leaked online they re-enact the Death of Superman storyline which leads the reveal of a Superman statue, not unlike the one that is being built on set.

However, the website does go to lengths to point out: “Now, of course, much can change in the production process. This may be used purely for flashback purposes on the screen, looking at the life (and death) of Superman. It may be purely for promotional efforts to accompany the film. »

Kevin Smith to address rumours about him writing a fake Batman v Superman script

8 July 2014 2:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, a report emerged suggesting that all of the “scoops” we’ve heard about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice these past few weeks have in fact been sourced from a fake script, which Kevin Smith has allegedly penned as a diversionary tactic for Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder.

The title page from the script that has been doing the rounds claims that David S. Goyer and Chris Terrio are the authors, and the screenplay itself is packed with fan service and spelling errors, which has drawn its authenticity into question. And now Kevin Smith has taken to Twitter to announce that he’ll comment on the speculation tomorrow:

 

Riddle me this, riddle me that! Did I write a diversionary script for the Bat? Let me tell you a story… Tomorrow morning at 11am Pst.

— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) July 8, 2014

Interesting that he didn’t just come out and deny it… »

Did Kevin Smith write the “fake” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice script leaked online?

5 July 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems like a never-ending war for “scoops” and speculation between Star Wars: Episode VII and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Earlier this week rumours of plot details and multi-villain appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were reported by Latino Review, based on a script that was leaked. Since those reports, it has been claimed that the script was a fake and leaked on purpose to throw “scoop” sites off the real scent of what the movie is about.

Well, now Movieweb are claiming that their sources have told them that the leaked script was written by Clerks director Kevin Smith.

Here’s what the report says:

“Up until last year I worked for as a Pa for a Warner Bros. exec until I was promoted to marketing. It was here I and several others where approached to work, directly and indirectly, for Susanne Knoll and sometimes Deborah Snyder. »

A trio of villains rumoured for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

3 July 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today we got our first look at Henry Cavill suited up as the Man of Steel in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but preceding that a new rumour emerged via Latino-Review, who claim to have uncovered a trio of secondary villains set to join Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in the DC ensemble.

According to the site, Ben Affleck’s Batman will tussle with the deranged serial killer Victor Zsasz early on in the film in Gotham, while Morgan Edge will feature as a PR exec at LexCorp and the assassin David Cain will be hired by Luthor’s bodyguard Mercy (rumored to be played by Tao Okamoto) to set up a hit. The report goes on to suggest that previous rumours about Metallo and The Joker are inaccurate, as well as suggesting that Amanda Waller will also feature in the cast. As always, don’t take this »

First image of Superman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

3 July 2014 4:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen Henry Cavill in his civilian duds as intrepid reporter Clark Kent, and now we’ve got an image of him in his boy scout uniform. USA Today has an exclusive shot of the Man of Steel, looking all massive and stoic…

USA Today adds, “‘Dawn of Justice‘ continues to immerse Superman on Earth by working at the Daily Planet as Clark Kent along with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne). But it also takes him to new environments such as Gotham City and introduces larger threats, including Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). The debuting heroes Superman meets will affect his perspective on Earth and on the ones he loves, and Snyder feels his convictions will be drawn into question as well.”

Head on over there to USA Today to check out the full interview where Synder also discussed the ‘v’ in Batman v Superman and »

First look at Henry Cavill as Clark Kent on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

30 June 2014 5:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen Ben Affleck suited up as The Dark Knight and Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, and now we have our first look at Henry Cavill as Clark Kent on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice thanks to a set photo posted by The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund. Clark’s missing the glasses, but apart from that it gives us a pretty good idea of how Cavill will appear as the Man of Steel’s alter-ego…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – new details on Wonder Woman, Batman and Lex Luthor

23 June 2014 7:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We reported earlier that Latino Review are claiming footage will of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be shown at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and now we have some new rumours from JoBlo.

There could be potential spoilers below…

On Wonder Woman’s costume:

Earlier reports were that [the costume] would be the jacket and leggins outfit, however that is inaccurate. This Wonder Woman is ripped right from the comics and has a traditional – yet sleeker - costume that’s quoted as being ‘battle ready’. She’ll have a blue leather skirt, silver armour cuffs that reach to her elbows, a golden tiara with possibly the red star as the design and a variation of the traditional looking red top. Her overall appearance is described as Amazon Warrior Princess and definitely not an urban re-imagining. Apparently Warner Bros. are thrilled with the costume and our own source used the term “bad ass” several times. »
