Full ‘Arrow’ Season 3 Trailer Features Ra’s al Ghul

27 July 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Whereas Arrow season 1 was more or less Green Arrow by way of Christopher Nolan’s Batman (with some CW drama mixed in for good measure), season 2 upped the ante considerably by adding Deathstroke the Terminator, superpowered villains, Barry Allen, the Suicide Squad, and more. Plus, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) himself became more of a “superhero” than a vigilante; now he sports a green domino mask like the one he wears in the comics, he goes by “Arrow” instead of “The Hood,” and he no longer kills as he did in the first season.

Good news, Arrow fans – everything we know about season 3 indicates that it’ll up the ante even more. Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) will play Ray Palmer, who becomes The Atom in the comics; Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) will become Click to continue reading Full ‘Arrow’ Season 3 Trailer Features Ra’s al Ghul

Wildcat And Ra’s Al Ghul Are Heading To Arrow

27 July 2014 1:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One things fans can never complain about the CW’s Arrow is a lack of DC Comics characters. Over the course of the show’s two seasons we’ve seen countless villains and heroes from the comics, and that trend will continue as we head into year three. We’ve already seen characters like Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom (played by Superman ReturnsBrandon Routh), the New 52 version of Count Vertigo (Fargo‘s Peter Stormare) and Katana (Sin City‘s Devon Aoki) join the ranks, and now we have two more names to add to that list.

The first new addition is Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, a championship boxer who served as a mentor and trainer to several younger heroes including Black Canary and Batman. He’s a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and has been seen in several DC animated series like »

Bryan Singer Dismissed From Sex Abuse Lawsuit

25 July 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Bryan Singer has some cause for celebration. The X-Men: Days of Future Past director has been dismissed from a UK sex abuse lawsuit filed by an anonymous British actor.

Court papers were filed in central California today that dismisses the case against Singer “with prejudice,” ending Singer’s involvement in the suit and vindicating both him and his attorney Marty Singer (no relation), who says that he’s “pleased the case was dismissed.”

Bryan Singer has had several sex-abuse allegations levelled against him, beginning with the lawsuit brought about by actor Michael Egan that stated Singer had abused him when he was a teen. Both that lawsuit and the now-dismissed UK suit were filed by attorney Jeff Herman. The UK suit involved allegations that Singer had sex with the then 17 year old plaintiff at a Superman Returns after-party in London. The plaintiff claimed that he resisted, but was held »

Where the Nicolas Cage–Tim Burton Superman Movie Went Wrong

25 July 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

During the '90s, years before Superman Returns, Warner Bros. tried to make a Superman movie with Kevin Smith attached to write the script, Tim Burton attached to direct, and Nicolas Cage attached to play Superman. Obviously, this movie never happened. But from the ashes arose a documentary. The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? tells the story of the film's ups and downs and downs and features interviews with many people involved in the picture, including Burton and Smith. However, its original round of crowdsourced funding fell a bit short of what it actually needed, so director Jon Schnepp is asking for another $85,000 on To entice people, he released a full trailer. Watch below, and then spend your weekend just thinking about Nic Cage flying around without a care in the world. »

'The Death of Superman Lives' Trailer Explores Tim Burton's Failure

25 July 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Anyone who loves Superman knows that director Tim Burton almost followed up his successful adaptation of Batman by bringing The Big Blue Boy Scout to the big screen as well. Nicolas Cage was once meant to play the superhero with a script from fanboy favorite filmmaker Kevin Smith. It was a weird production with the likes of Chris Rock playing Jimmy Olsen and Kevin Spacey once on board as Lex Luthor, way before Superman Returns came knocking at his door for the same role. Now the documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? (which we featured as a Kickstarter film in the beginning of 2013) explores what went wrong with the film, and we have the first trailer. Watch it below! Here's the first trailer for The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? from Jon Schnepp: The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? is directed by Jon Schnepp and »

Documentary about the time Nic Cage almost played Superman gets trailer

25 July 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Remember that time Nicolas Cage was going to be Superman?

In the long period between 1987’s Superman IV: The Quest for Peace and 2006’s Superman Returns, the Man of Steel was stuck in development hell, with several projects failing to launch. Of those projects, one of the strangest was 1996’s Superman Lives!, an adaptation of the Death and Return of Superman written by Kevin Smith (who has talked about this project before) and directed by Tim Burton.

Filmmaker Jon Schnepp has spent the past year making a Kickstarter-funded documentary on the failed project. In an effort to raise more funds »

The Death of Superman Lives documentary debuts first trailer

25 July 2014 2:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever heard of the tale of Nicolas Cage (The Rock) playing Superman? While some of us have seen the photos of Cage in his suit, and heard Kevin Smith’s hilarious take on the film during his An Evening With Kevin Smith DVD, many are still unaware that there was almost another Superman movie before Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns.

But now, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, documentary filmmaker Jon Schnepp has investigated the true story behind the aborted film in The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, which has had its first trailer debut online.

Superman Lives was set for release back in 1998/1999, and was going to be directed by Tim Burton (Batman), with Cage in the title role and Chris Rock (Lethal Weapon 4) as Jimmy Olsen. While some artwork and designs, and indeed a teaser poster have appeared online over the years, it seems as though everyone involved with the film, »

First trailer for documentary about Nicolas Cage's unfinished Superman movie

Before Brandon Routh's Superman Returns and Henry Cavill's Man Of Steel, there was Nicolas Cage's Superman Lives...kind of. I'm sure by now most of you know about the doomed Tim Burton movie, and have seen a few images online of Cage in costume, as well as some concept art from the unfinished film.

The Death Of SuperMan Lives, What Happened? Trailer

24 July 2014 11:41 PM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Superman dies! Kicks the bucket. Chokes the cape. Call it whatever. Back in the 1990s Superman Lives was the title for a movie based on a version of The Death Of Superman storyline from the comic book. The Man Of Steel meets his demise at the “hands” of Doomsday. Kevin Smith wrote the script (which is considered by fans to be the most faithful to the mythos) and Nicholas Cage was planning on donning the tights, with Tim Burton set to direct. The project ending up being scrapped and Superman Returns from Bryan Singer flew into cinemas instead. The crowdfunded “The Death Of Superman Lives; What Happened?” documentary is on it’s final lap as it’s just kicked off it’s finishing funds campaign (and has 46 days left as of writing this). The documentary features lots of interviews with those involved including Tim Burton and Kevin Smith and if »

Comic-Con: New 'Death of Superman Lives' Trailer with Tim Burton

24 July 2014 6:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? tells the heartwarming story of how director Tim Burton and writer Kevin Smith tried to resurrect Superman on the big screen before 2006's Superman Returns and before Zack Snyder rejuvenated Kal-El with Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Both Tim Burton and writer Kevin Smith are present in this latest footage, offering their take on the disastrous Superman Lives and how it failed to fly.

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? is a Feature Length Documentary about the unmade movie Superman Lives. This film, out of all the various attempts to make a Superman movie between 1987 and 2006, would have stood the test of time and become a bonafide Cult Classic nowadays. I am not alone with my intense interest in knowing everything I can about this project, and so now I'm embarking on making a Documentary that will »

Colton Haynes First Look as Superhero Alter Ego on ‘Arrow’ (Photo)

23 July 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Starling City is about to get another superhero, though he's a familiar face fans are likely already prepared for. When “Teen Wolf” alum Colton Haynes signed on to the show to play Roy Harper, the countdown to Arsenal was on. Now, as season 3 approaches, he's finally here. The character has also gone by Red Arrow in the comics, which is fitting, judging by the first photo.

5 Movies Due For a Remake

21 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

What keeps any story or idea relevant is continuous adaptation. The blanket statement that “remakes suck” discounts a lot of great remakes and ignores the fact that mankind has been retelling and remixing stories forever. A good example of reinvention is Batman, who will see his 4th cinematic incarnation and is popular worldwide and across all ages. Buck Rogers on the other hand hasn’t had a new movie since 1939 and grows more irrelevant with each passing year.

All five movies that I think are due for a remake are 15 years or older. Four of these are adaptations from other media. For each movie I break down their faults or misfortunes, the opportunity in the source material or potential in a remake, how a remake makes fiscal sense, its current and past remake status, and finally a bit of fanboy wishful thinking.

Geoff Johns: DC Movie & TV Universes Will Be ‘Separate’

20 July 2014 7:59 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

In some alternate universe, Warner Bros. and DC’s 2006 Superman Returns was an extension of their 2005 reboot Batman Begins, ushering in a new interconnected movie universe ahead of Marvel Studios. That didn’t happen, of course. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy exists as an Elseworlds-type of self-contained story, standing apart from the newly established DC Movie Universe created by last year’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel.

Marvel, in contrast, patiently and carefully built up their own universe, starting with Iron Man (2008), peaking commercially with the 2012 Superhero All-Star Jam The Avengers, which was then augmented by the ABC television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now that DC and Warner Bros. is continuing their Man of Steel world-building with Batman v Superman: Dawn ...

13 Actors Who Almost Played Superheroes

15 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.

I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »

Bryan Singer developing The Age of Heroes adaptation

11 July 2014 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having directed 3 X-Men movies (his latest being X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Superman Returns, you would expect Bryan Singer to be moving away from the comic book world before heading back in for X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. However, Tracking Boards show that his company, Bat Hat Harry, have acquired the rights to The Age of Heroes by James Hudnall for a big screen adaptation.

The Age of Heroes was released in the 1990s. Here’s the synopsis:

When the gods were born, they remade the world in the image of their dreams. This was known as the Age of Gods. When man was created along with other races of beings, fantastic cities were raised, insane magics were forged and unimaginable wars were fought, as the gods battled for supremacy over all creation. This was known as the Age of Wonders. When the gods fled and man was left to make »
