Jena Malone and Callan Mulvey’s Batman v Superman roles revealed?

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a pretty good week for DC fans, what with some new images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice [see here and here] and comments from the likes of Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck. And now we have a couple of rumours to chew on, concerning the identity of the characters played by Jena Malone and Callan Mulvey

According to Latino-Review, Jena Malone – who has been heavily rumoured to play Carrie Kelley, the female Robin from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – is actually portraying Barbara Godon, who may or may not be in her Batgirl or Oracle guises. Meanwhile, Heroic Hollywood is claiming that Callan Mulvey will appear as the DC villain Anatoli Knyazev, a.k.a. KGBeast, who has long been rumoured to make an appearance.

As always, take these with a pinch of salt, particularly given the sources…

Denise Richards & Jane Seymour Join Adi Shankar’s Gods And Secrets

30 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Yesterday we found out that producer Adi Shankar (Dredd, Punisher: Dirty Laundry) would team with Stewart Yost to co-direct a dark new superhero series for HBO titled Gods And Secrets, which is said to be (and very much sounds to be) inspired by Alan Moore's Watchmen. Now The Wrap reports that Denise Richards (Wild Things, Starship Troopers, The World Is Not Enough) and Jane Seymour (Live And Let Die, How I Met Your Mother, Battlestar Galactica) have joined the cast in unspecified roles. Gods And Secrets will focus on the exploits of a superteam known as the "Guardians of Justice", and will explore "the darker ramifications of a world filled with superheroes — for the people they protect and the famous heroes themselves." Former WWE Superstar Diamond Dallas Page, Jackson Rathbone (The Twilight Saga), Kellan Lutz (The Legend Of Hercules), Sharni Vinson (You're Next) and Andy Milonakis will also star, »

Superheroes Go Dark In "Gods And Secrets"

29 July 2015 3:26 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following on from his work as a producer on "Dredd" and "The Grey" along with the much talked about "Power/Rangers" fan film, Adi Shankar is set to team with Stewart Yost for his directorial debut effort "Gods And Secrets".

The project is described as a dark drama akin to Alan Moore's "Watchmen" in that it will explore the darker logical underpinnings of superhero tropes in a world in which superheroes exist and the resulting celebrity culture are front and center.

The story deals with what happens when a tragedy strikes the super heroic team Guardians of Justice, and in its aftermath secrets are revealed, lives are changed, and the war to end all wars begins.

Diamond Dallas Page, Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz, Sharni Vinson and Andy Milonakis star in the project. No further specifics about it are available at this time.

Adi Shankar to direct dark superhero drama Gods and Secrets for HBO

29 July 2015 2:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Adi Shankar, the producer behind the likes of Dredd and The Grey and the fanmade shorts Punisher: Dirty Laundry, Venom: Truth in Journalism and Power/Rangers, is set to make his directorial debut with the “dark superhero drama” Gods and Secrets.

Deadline reports that the show “will mine territory similar to Alan Moore’s Watchmen, exploring the darker logical underpinnings of superhero tropes. In a world in which superheroes exist, personal foibles and the resulting celebrity culture are front and center. In the story, tragedy has struck the superheroic team Guardians of Justice, and in its aftermath secrets are revealed, lives are changed, and the war to end all wars begins.”

Set to feature in the cast of Gods and Secrets are Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz, Sharni Vinson, Andy Milonakis and Diamond Dallas Page.

Adi Shankar To Direct Watchmen-Inspired Superhero Drama Gods And Secrets For HBO

29 July 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Adi Shankar, the producer behind the 'Bootleg Universe' one-shot films Power/Rangers & The Punisher: Dirty Laundry and 2012's Dredd will make his directorial debut with HBO's Gods And Secrets. According to Deadline, Shankar will team up with Stewart Yost to co-direct this dark superhero drama that's said to be inspired by Alan Moore's seminal graphic novel, Watchmen. The drama will feature an original team named 'Guardians Of Justice', and explore the more secretive and shady aspects of celebrity culture by applying it to superheroes. The series is set to star WWE's Diamond Dallas Page, Jackson Rathbone (The Twilight Saga), Kellan Lutz (The Legend Of Hercules), Sharni Vinson (You're Next) and Andy Milonakis. The core premise appears intruiging, while the project's placement on HBO should be enough to pique most people's interest. The cast is admittedly rather uninspiring, but Shankar has impressed in the past with his Bootleg one-shots. »

Eli Snyder To Play Robin In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice?

24 July 2015 8:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you thought that the new trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice would have put an end to the rampant rumors surrounding the hotly-anticipated blockbuster, think again! If anything, the new footage has only created quite a few more questions and this week, one of those queries came to the forefront and gave way to a new rumor: Who’s playing the dead Robin that wore the costume that was on display in Ben Affleck’s Batcave?

In the comics, the second person to take on the Robin moniker was Jason Todd, an orphan that Bruce took under his wing when Dick Grayson left the colorful tights behind to become Nightwing. Jason was later seemingly killed by the Joker, but reappeared in Gotham years later as gun-toting vigilante/anti-hero, Red Hood.

It’s long been rumored that this Death in the Family storyline would play out in the »

Robin Revealed in 'Batman v Superman'?

23 July 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, a rumor started to spread like wild fire that director Zack Snyder had cast his teenage son Eli Snyder to play the Dark Knight's iconic sidekick Robin in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now, Zack Snyder's longtime photographer is throwing a gallon of gasoline on those rumors, sharing a photo on both Instagram and Twitter, which shows Zack Snyder and Eli Snyder standing together. He gleefully asks the question, 'Boy Wonder?'

Eli Snyder is seen in his tuxedo, and as reported yesterday, he attends Maranatha High. This could simply be a picture from his prom done by a very professional photographer. But fans have been quick to assume that it is a photo from the set. Is Jason Todd heading to prom? Where he is killed by The Joker? Well, that doesn't really match up with previous reports. Or the fact that Jason appears to have died in his Robin costume. »

Zack Snyder Might have Chosen His Robin for 'Batman v Superman'

23 July 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In a little over a week since it's release online, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer has been viewed over 36 million times. Every second of the almost 4 minute long trailer has been analyzed and dissected. One of the standout moments for a lot of fans is the reveal of the empty Robin suit set up like a monument in the Batcave. There's no context to the image, except a message painted on the suit that says, "Hahaha jokes on you Batman." So, will we get to see our first big screen Robin since Chris O'Donnellc According to Heroic Hollywood, we will, and we also might know who will be playing Batman's sidekick. Eli Snyder is rumored to portray the Boy Wonder in a flashback scene with the Joker (Jared Leto) in Batman v Superman. If the last name Snyder rings a bell, it should because that's the last name of director Zack Snyder. »

Actor Rumored to Play Robin in Batman v. Superman Flashback

23 July 2015 12:03 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While we saw Robin's costume hanging up in the batcave in the last Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, a new report suggests we could see a flashback showing how that outfit ended up on display.  Come inside to learn more. 

Heroic Hollywood is the one coming with the rumor, but they also rumored that the Robin costume would appear in the Sdcc trailer. That was obviously true, so why not run with this one too?  They're claiming that Zack Snyder's son will be portraying the boy wonder in a flashback scene. 

Snyder's son, Eli, has already done several small roles in 300 and Watchmen which included younger flashbacks of main characters. Currently he is a young high school quarterback coming in at 6 foot and 170 pounds, clearly athletic enough to pull of the part well.

According to the rumor the scene will be yet another flash back for him »

Did 'Batman v Superman' Director Cast His Son as Robin?

22 July 2015 4:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Warner Bros. debuted the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer during their Hall H panel at Comic-Con, the footage confirmed a number of different rumors that had been swirling for months about the superhero movie. One of those rumors was that Batman's sidekick Robin will be featured in the movie in some way, and that he will be killed, most likely by The Joker. That rumor was confirmed during a shot in the trailer when Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) glances up at Robin's suit, with the hand-painted remarks, "Ha Ha Ha Joke's On You Batman" from The Joker. Today we have a new report from Heroic Hollywood, who claim that director Zack Snyder's teenage son Eli Snyder will be playing Robin.

Gadot Talks, Robin Rumors For "Justice"

22 July 2015 2:14 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The hiring of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has met with both praise and criticism online, some called her too skinny and others just had a different idea in their head. What everyone seems to agree on though is the character is Long overdue her time to shine on the big screen, with Gadot's version being the first ever to be brought to film.

Talking about the challenge with Interview Magazine, Gadot is both excited about the role and has a good response to the critics out there:

"Oh, my God, I'm so excited about this role. I feel like I've been given a huge opportunity to inspire people, not only women. And not because of me but because of who Wonder Woman is and what she stands for. There's a lot of responsibility. But I have the best team »

Is This Who Will Play 'Robin' In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice?

22 July 2015 1:46 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Judging by the above shot from the new Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer, the Joker is going to enjoy taunting the Dark Knight by scrawling on the Robin suit monument in the Batcave. Fans have come to the conclusion that this must be because the Clown Prince Of Crime had something to do with the Boy Wonder's death, and there'd be a good possibility we'd see this via flashback in the movie. Now none of that has been confirmed of course, but we do now have a hot rumor that the character will definitely feature, and we might just know who'll be playing him. According to Heroic Hollywood, it'll be none other than the director's son, Eli Snyder. If he looks familiar it's because he also played the young Leonidas in 300 and the young Rorschach in Watchmen. Snyder Jr. is now 6'0 foot tall Varsity athlete, so would »

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Ring of Roses’

22 July 2015 6:13 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Das Petrou | Art by John Watkiss | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Hardback, 144pp

Well this one has been around the block a bit before being dusted down and dressed up with shiny new colouring by the ever inventive lot at Titan Comics (the original books were black and white). They do have an eye for a rough diamond, I’ll give them that!

Ring of Roses originally started life as a 4 part mini-series published by Dark Horse Comics in 1992, then was re-packaged as a trade paperback by Image Comics in 2004. So the question is, is a story already published twice and dating from over twenty years ago originally, worthy of your 2015 hard-earned currency? For me, yes. There are plenty of themes running through the story that not only are still as relevant now as they were back in the early 90′s, but perhaps even more so. Don’t take my word for it, »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice – 10 Things You Need To Know

19 July 2015 2:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

While Zack Snyder was a slave to the comics when he was adapting Watchmen, it’s quickly becoming apparent that he wasn’t lying when he said that this isn’t an adaptation of The Dark Knight Returns. For that matter, new details about Batman v Superman indicate that he’s veering wildly from the source material in general, something it will only be easy to forgive him for is the movie is as good as most of us are sure it will be.

You see, whether Marvel fanboys like it or not, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is shaping up to be 2016’s biggest and best comic book movie. That’s not to say Captain America: Civil War won’t still be amazing, but it’s going to be damn near impossible for anything to come within a million miles of a movie which pits two »

11 underappreciated graphic novels

17 July 2015 3:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We asked our writers to recommend graphic novels that deserved more fanfare, and here's what they chose...

Geek tastes running tall and wide, when we asked our writers to recommend favourite books that they felt hadn't received the levels of popularity or public recognition they deserved, in came a heap of suggestions. Too many for one piece, hence us dividing the entries into four separate lists: adult sci-fi, fantasy and horror fiction; graphic novels; children's/Ya fiction; and non-fiction.

We'll let you use the power of your eyeballs to see which one of those lists you're currently reading. And in the spirit of the piece, hope you'll join in by providing your own suggestions to keep the recommendations coming in the comments section. Sharing: it's what makes geek communities great.
