Courtesy of IGN, we also have some new game details. Roger Craig Smith, who has voiced Ezio from Assassin's Creed and Chris Redfield from Resident Evil will be voicing Batman, Not Kevin Conroy. Either, the game will feature flashbacks and we'll have an older and younger Bruce Wayne in the game and therefore both Conroy and Smith or Conroy is actually working on RockSteady's Silver Age Justice League video game, not Origins. The Joker is also confirmed to appear in the game but he's also voiced by a different actor, Troy Baker. Other villains confirmed are Bane, Deadshot, Anarky, Black Mask, and of course Deathstroke. The box art also features Killer Croc and Penguin. Related Content: Video Games: MultiPlayer Set For Batman: Arkham Origins? Video Games: Rocksteady's Batman Arkham City Prequel To Drop 3Q 2013?

Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy turned out to be a multi-billion dollar hit, and "Man of Steel" is on track to become another massive success for the Warner Bros. But the studio has yet to reveal its master plan for its DC superheroes, especially the status of "Justice League of America." Variety has now learned that Warners Bros will definitely begin work on "Justice League" soon, because the studio has signed a major deal with Target to begin selling "Justice League" merchandise, focusing on Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Cyborg, The Flash, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman. Even though this looks like nothing more than Warner Bros attempting to sell a few toys, Variety says that the plan is to get consumers used to seeing DC superheroes in retail stores. All in preparation for a "Justice League" movie. Click here to read more about "Justice League of America." »
Our weekly round up of the latest stories from the world of screen superheroes, including Man of Steel, Justice League, Iron Man 3, The Avengers 2, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man, Arrow, Booster Gold, Wonder Woman, Teen Titans Go!, Lego Batman: The Movie - DC Superheroes Unite, Avengers Assemble, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Ultimate Spider-Man, The Incredibles 2 and more...
Seeing as Marvel has pretty much dominated the headlines these past few weeks (well, months actually), we'll start things off this week with the year's next superhero offering Man of Steel. With less than a month to go until its eagerly-anticipated release a full-on marketing blitz is imminent, and this past week saw Warner Bros. debuting three new posters, two TV spots, two new »

Pretty much at the start of the video above from this weekened's Dallas Comic Con, longtime animated and video game Dcu voice actor Kevin Conroy revealed that he'd spent the last "9-10 months" working on the next "Arkham" game.
While Conroy doesn't call out WB Montreal's "Batman: Arkham Origins," he says that the title he's been working on has already been announced, and that the reveal of the voice cast was strictly down to the studio attempting to control the flow of information about the project. If that's the case, then when a WB Montreal rep was speaking with a South African publication about the prequel, they were either misquoted or outright lying about Conroy's involvement in the game, saying that with a younger Batman taking center stage in "Origins," they wanted to go in another direction.
Conroy's been voicing the Dark Knight in some form or other for over 20 years now, »

Unlike Marvel Studios, Warner Bros. don't have a series of solo movies which have helped to build up brand recognition for the Justice League members. Green Lantern was a commercial failure, Batman's story came to an end in The Dark Knight Rises and it's Man of Steel which will seemingly serve as the launching point for a reboot of the DC Cinematic Universe. Should that prove to be a success, a Justice League movie is expected to hit by 2015 at the very earliest. In an interesting report over at Variety, they reveal that Warner Bros.' consumer products division is now getting consumers familiar with the team by launching a huge range of products exclusively through Target. Despite being inspired by "The New 52" (which many fans hope will also be the main inspiration for the movie) and focusing on Aquaman, Batman, Cyborg, The Flash, Green Lantern, Superman and Wonder Woman, »
Even before “Man of Steel” helps set up a “Justice League” movie at Warner Bros., the studio’s consumer products division is already getting consumers — especially kids and families — used to seeing the match up of the superheroes in the retail aisle.
Starting today, Target will exclusively start selling a summer collection of Justice League-themed merchandise themed around Aquaman, Batman, Cyborg, The Flash, Green Lantern, Superman and Wonder Woman.
But the look goes a little more pop-culture retro, with vintage and nostalgic designs that resemble the merchandise Wbcp recently launched around the campy 1960s “Batman” TV show.

Ubisoft and New Regency are movie full steam ahead with their Assassin's Creed movie adaptation and have set a release date for the film in the already exciting (and packed) Summer of 2015.
As if having Avengers 2, Star Wars Episode VII, Justice League (possibly), Fantastic Four, and several others rumored and confirmed for the Summer 2015, wasn't enough for you, now the movie adaptation of the popular Assassin's Creed video game series is also landing in that time frame. According to Box Office Mojo Assassin's Creed is set for May 22, 2015, in the Memorial Day weekend slot.
And that's about all the new information we have! We know that Michael Fasbender is attached to produce and star and that Michael Lesslie has been tapped to write the script. Outside of that, we don't have any oter real info. While most have assumed the film will follow the storyline of the original game, there's »

The lovely and talented Lake Bell has been a mainstay of film and television for over a decade, stealing scenes in films like "No Strings Attached" and on television series such as "Childrens Hospital" and "How to Make it in America." This week she's an average girl out for a weekend of fun who finds herself in a battle for survival in the indie thriller "Black Rock."
We had an exclusive 1-on-1 with Bell to discuss shooting a film without bathrooms, girl talk during life or death situations, her directorial debut "In a World ... " and her continuing quest to one day play Wonder Woman.
Was the shoot for "Black Rock" as isolated as it looks? Were you guys confined to this island location?
We shot in Milbridge, Maine, which is an incredibly tiny town. Not only is it really tiny but we were sequestered to the girl's cabin and then »

Damon Lindelof (Prometheus, Star Trek Into Darkness) has offered some advice to Warner Bros. about their planned Justice League movie, which will tie together their superhero properties of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, etc - just like Marvel did with The Avengers / Avengers Assemble.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lindelof was asked whether he would help WB solve their 'Justice League problem' if they called. He deflected the question with his superpower of Suggestion Shield...
"I think a lot of that depends on Man of Steel. The Justice League problem is not a problem of, who is the bad guy that Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, Superman, whoever you decide to pit them against. The problem is: What’s the tone of that movie? They’ve been struggling with launching their own tone. The tone of Green Lantern is very different from the tone of The Dark Knight. They »

It's not that unusual for interviews on the Empire Podcast to include news stories that jump out of the podcast and onto the internet at large. Ryan Reynolds (on both the Justice League movie and the Deadpool script), Iron Man 3's Drew Pearce and Shane Black (on Pepper Potts sex scenes and more). Now writer / producer / director David S. Goyer is talking about why Man Of Steel has that title in the first place.The interview in question went live two weeks ago, in Podcast #59, which also included the delightful Rian Johnson talking about directing or writing a Doctor Who project, but instead of fanfaring the news snippet we thought we'd leave it in there as a kind-of-sorta present for regular listeners. Now time has passed, here's a transcript of what Mr. Goyer said for anyone who's allergic to podcasting and/or doesn't have headphones they can use in the office. »
I enjoy Damon Lindelof's work. I like that he's a geek like the rest of us that we can relate to, only he's on the inside and gets to tell fun stories and make really cool movies. That's one of the reasons why I respect his thoughts on things going on in the film business, and why I enjoy the things he works on.
As you know, Warner Bros. has had a very hard time bringing Justice League to the big screen. In fact, they've had a hard time adapting any of their DC characters (other than Batman) as a feature film. It looks like they might have gotten Superman right with Man of Steel, but that has yet to be seen.
During a recent interview with THR, Lindelof was asked how he would solve the "Justice League problem" if Warner Bros. reached out to him for help. This »

It's coming this fall to the PC, Wii U, and 3Ds, and it's going to let you draw in just about any DC Comics character you can think of.
Probably even this guy.
I would have gone with Vibe instead as the weird example, but whatever. We're getting a new "Scribblenauts" game and it's going to feature the heroes and villains of the DC Universe helping Maxwell solve occasionally bizarre challenges. The announcement name-checks Batman, Superman, the Justice League, Lex Luthor, and Sinestro as characters that will pop up in the game as well as Metropolis, Gotham, and Atlantis as locations where the DC villains will plot and scheme (and Maxwell will have to try and stop them).
Besides the usual "Scribblenauts" usual, "Unmasked" will feature dynamically-generated puzzles called "Heroic Challenges," while the Wii U and PC versions will include a Super Hero Creator where you can give your own »

"The Justice League problem? I think a lot of that depends on Man of Steel," he told The Hollywood Reporter.
"The Justice League problem is not a problem of who is the bad guy [for] Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, Superman, whoever you decide to pit them against. The problem is - what's the tone of that movie?

Warner Bros. needs to do something with "Justice League" fast, otherwise interviewers will keep asking other people how to handle their potential franchise. Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige previously offered his take on the DC Comics films, and now screenwriter Damon Lindelof has weighed in.

Love or hate his stuff, Damon Lindelof gets a Lot of work. Coming off Star Trek Into Darkness with J.J. Abrams once again, many fans wondered if he'd be involved in the new Star Wars movie in some capacity, and in his interview with The Hollywood Reporter they do ask him about that -- but they also quiz him about the planned Justice League film at Warner Bros. Although he is asked outright if he'd like to take a crack at the script, Lindelof plays coy, instead detailing what he feels the major issue with getting the movie together in the first place is. THR: If Warner Bros called and asked you to help solve their Justice League problem, would you take that call? Lindelof: The Justice League problem? I think a lot of that depends on Man of Steel.

While the conversation surrounding a new Justice League film has been focused on the level of success enjoyed by next month's Man of Steel, Warner Bros. is seeing new successes when it comes to its superhero team that may indicate a greater investment by the studio in a potential franchise. While Batman and Superman by themselves have always proven to be the top cash cows for Warner Bros. in relation to its DC Comics properties, recent hits in other fields and the impending release of a League-related line of merchandise in a major American retailer may be indicating renewed interest in the team. Couple that with the immense, ongoing success of Marvel's Avengers franchise, and it becomes no surprise that the studio may be looking to...

While Warner Brothers’ Justice League remains lodged firmly between rock and hard place, it seemed as though Guillermo del Toro’s Justice League Dark would be the DC super-team most likely to go head-to-head with Joss Whedon’s The Avengers.
A recent update from del Toro himself suggests that Justice League Dark is itself no sure thing either. On one hand teasing a line-up which includes Constantine, Swamp Thing, Madame Xanadu, Deadman and Zantanna, the Pacific Rim director also revealed that he has yet to receive an official greenlight from the studio.
The script a work in process — the specifics kept secret to keep spoilers to an absolute minimum — del Toro explained that if Warner Bros. like the results he’ll helm the film. If not, however, this could be another of his many abandoned or simply unfinished projects; a long list which at this point includes At The Mountains Of Madness, »
