Like Watchmen, Sandman is considered to be one of those comic books which is impossible to bring to the big screen. However, as Zack Snyder eventually did with Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ graphic novel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is looking to helm a live-action adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s beloved Sandman.
The Don Jon director is attached to produce and direct the movie from a pitch by Man of Steel writer David Goyer. Jack Thorne (A Long Way Down) was recently revealed to be working on the script, but in a recent interview, Levitt confirmed that they’re still very much in the early stages of developing the project.
“Right now we’re working on a script,” the actor and filmmaker revealed. “It’s me and Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros. It’s a really cool team of people. »

Tom Cruise, Anna Wintour and Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot are among the stars who have taken the Als Ice Bucket Challenge. As of Wednesday, the challenge — which asks people to donate $100 or dump a bucket of ice water on their heads — has brought in $31.5 million to the Als Association. It's hard to keep track of them all, so here we present the best from Wednesday. Zack Snyder Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice may be consuming his life, but director Zack Snyder chose to challenge Watchmen stars Malin Akerman, Carla Gugino and Jeffrey

Last night, a Playboy interview with Frank Miller was brought to my attention as he discusses his new film, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, as well as his interpretation of Batman as seen in his graphic novels "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" and "Batman: Year One". He also doesn't shy away from giving his impression of movies based on characters he's worked on, up to and including Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, but let's take this one step at a time. As far as his approach to Batman, whom he portrayed as older and more grizzled, he says, "Well, you do get crabbier as you get older. laughs Also, I never believed that a guy who tortured people and dressed like Dracula was the most pleasant person to have over for dinner." Zack Snyder appears to be taking this approach »

Malin Akerman (Watchmen, Couples Retreat) is joining Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens in The Ticket, an indie drama about a sightless man (Stevens) who suddenly regains his vision only to be “blinded” by his obsession with the superficial. Akerman is playing the wife Stevens leaves after getting back his sight. Pic is written and directed by Ido Fluk, and filming is underway now in upstate New York. Rampart and The Messenger producers Oren Moverman and Lawrence Inglee are producing. Akerman is coming off small-screen roles on Adult Swim’s Children’s Hospital, HBO’s The Comeback, and ABC’s Trophy Wife.

HBO has delivered some terrific comedies over the years, from the quirky musical series Flight of the Conchords to biting political satire Veep, and with the cast that the premium cable network is pulling together for its upcoming comedy The Brink, there’s reason to believe HBO has another major hit on its hands.
Now, our anticipation has been raised with news that Watchmen actress Carla Gugino has joined the cast in a multi-episode arc. Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Jack Black (School of Rock) and Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is The New Black) all topline The Brink, which is described as “an epic dark comedy.”
As per Deadline: The Brink focuses on “a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins); Alex Coppins (Black), a lowly Foreign Service officer; and Zeke Callahan (Pablo Schreiber), an ace Navy fighter pilot. »

Let's face it, we all love Zack Snyder. Some of us love hating him, but that's the same thing. The opposite of love is not hate but indifference, someone wise once told me. We probably all want to know something more about this stunning, handsome man that gave us unforgettable experiences such as 300, Watchmen, Man of Steel, and Sucker Punch (I said unforgettable). A man full of energy, who, according to Scoot McNairy, does a lot of things during his day. Well, with that in mind, I used my non-existent inside source at Warner Bros. Entertainment to learn something about him. Here I give you what it's likely to be Zack "The Pimp" Snyder's typical day. 0:00 - 3:00 Am Dream about flyng skinny hot young women fighting against Nazi-Dinosaurs with lasers, all covered with a grey filter. 3:00 Am Wake up. 3:01 Am Do 50 push-ups,50 pull-ups, 100 crunches, 200 squats.

With writing credits like X-Men and Watchmen to his name, it can be easy to overlook the fact that David Hayter has also kept quite busy in the acting and voice acting realms as well. He’s still pushing forward as a writer/director and has his latest directorial endeavor, Wolves, due in the fall, but Hayter also abides by one very important acting rule; if someone asks him to take a part, he’s going to do it, and that’s how Devil’s Mile came up. Hayter steps in as Toby, a henchman of sorts to an evil crime boss named Mr. Arkadi who orders him and his cohorts, Cally (Maria del Mar) and Jacinta (Casey Hudecki), to kidnap two girls. They manage to get them, but delivering them becomes the problem due to the rather sinister nature of the route home. With Devil’s Mile hitting DVD and VOD on August 12th, »

With production still underway on Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in Detroit, more videos have surfaced from the set featuring car chases, star Ben Affleck and potentially a scene involving an appearance by Superman. There's also a few more rumors that have cropped up over the last few days.
First up, Movieweb suggests the character of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) will be responsible for much of the city infrastructure damage we've see in the photos and videos so far. How exactly is the big question.

The opening scene to 'Septic Man' has been released on to the internet and it certainly does push the limits of gross-out comedy! The movie from the creators 'Exit Humanity' and 'Pontypool' will be unleashed on 15 August and looks to be doing as much as it possibly can to help bring your lunch up. The movie from director Jesse Thomas Cook and penned by Tony Burgess stars Jason David Brown, Molly Dunsworth, Robert Maillet, Tim Burd, Julian Richings ('Supernatural') and Stephen McHattie ('Watchmen'). You can watch the video below but remember, you have been warned!! »
Our weekly round-up of all the latest superhero news and talking points, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Cinematic Universe, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, Batman: Assault on Arkham, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3, Black Panther, Daredevil, Deadpool, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Venom Carnage, Kick-Ass 3 and more….
Well, the big showdown between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America 3 is no more, with Warner Bros. blinking and shifting the release of BvS away from Marvel’s May 6th 2016 date to March 25th 2016 (a wise move, considering it will now face very little in the way of competition). The news was followed by the announcement that Warner Bros. has finally pulled the trigger on a DC Cinematic Universe by setting a further Nine »

One of my most anticipated movies is director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. The story is based on the comic by written by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons about a veteran secret agent (Colin Firth) who takes a teen delinquent (Taron Egerton) from the streets of London, and brings him into a British spy school that molds its students into suave 007-types. As a huge fan of what Vaughn did with X-Men: First Class and how awesome the first trailer looks, I cannot wait to see the finished film when it opens February 13, 2015. For more on the film, here's our Comic-Con panel recap and our interview with Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson. Shortly before their panel at Comic-Con, I landed an exclusive video interview with Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. They talked about working with Vaughn, the way he likes to do action, how Kingsman brings back the fun espionage genre, »

One Comic-Con movie that I actually wanted to see has been pushed back from October 24 to February 2015. It's Matthew Vaughn's spy flick "Kingsman: The Secret Service," which to be fair, looks like it might play better in a less competitive time frame. At the Con, star Colin Firth said he got to fulfill every boyhood fantasy dream by playing a kick-ass spy who trains a younger counterpart (Taron Egerton) in "Kingsman," based on the comic created by Mark Millar ("Kick Ass") and Dave Gibbons ("Watchmen"), which is a throwback to the fun-loving 007 from "The Spy Who Loved Me." (Vaughn brought a '60s vibe to his "X-Men: First Class.") In the trailer (below), elegantly dapper Firth deploys a stylish umbrella as an intricate weapon (shades of John Steed in "The Avengers"); he and Samuel L. Jackson actually discuss Bond movies. Mark Strong and Michael Caine provide support for along »

A new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice casting rumor has hit the web, and I’ve got to say it would be pretty great if it were true. New set photos have been leaking for the film left and right, and an eagle-eyed fan noticed something particularly interesting on Wednesday. Check out the image below…
It sure does look like Morgan, and if it is him, it looks like he’s playing the late Thomas Wayne. It’ll likely be more of a cameo than anything, and may not go beyond that portrait. But it would be a great nod to Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation, and a fun Easter egg for fans. Also, Morgan was one of the names tossed about when casting for Batman was underway. He may not have landed the role, »

New 'Batman V Superman' set photo reveals a painting that looks like Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Could he be, Thomas Wayne?! pic.twitter.com/w6rgvmzH8H. Superhero Report (@SuperheroReport) August 7, 2014 Spies have been all over the Michigan set for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, eager to catch a peek at any little snippet or detail for the recently rescheduled superhero mash-up. As such, each small piece of information has been analyzed and scrutinized beyond belief. Which is how we arrive at the photo above, which allegedly shows an interesting portrait being carried around.. Who is That handsome devil? Either Batman is good friends with Ron Burgundy's badass dad, or that's our first glimpse of Mr. Thomas Wayne. And, as noted, he does look quite a bit like Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who last worked with director Zack Snyder on Watchmen. If we're talking about similar facial structure to Ben Affleck, »
Warner Bros. may have moved its Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice away from Disney/Marvel‘s May 6, 2016, threequel Captain America 3, but the switch to March 25 was more bold strategy than tail-turning. Instead of going head to head (to head) with Cap, Warners now will open its DC superhero faceoff ahead of the summer movie crush, as director Zack Snyder’s 300 and Watchmen did in years past. It’s just the start of WB’s long-game plan to release two new superhero tentpoles per year through 2020 — following Marvel’s example of long-range flag planting and going farther than their […] »

“There Is A Red And Angry World.
Red Things Happen There.
The World Eats Your Wife.
Eats Your Friends.
Eats All Of The Things That Make You Human.
And You Become A Monster.”
When you hear the phrase, “Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen” you think it’s a sales pitch for something that you probably have seen before; but in the case of Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing, it’s dead on the money. When people think of Swamp Thing, »

It appears Marvel's box office performance this past weekend with the record-setting debut of Guardians of the Galaxy has shaken up Warner Bros. Pictures and their plans for the DC Comics mash-up Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The studio has just announced that they have shifted their comic book release away from their original May 6th, 2016 date, which would have pitted the film against Marvel's Captain America 3, to the more safe spring release of March 25th, 2016. No, that's not a typo. Warner Bros. is releasing this massive blockbuster in the spring, which almost seems like a punishment. Read on! While at first this might seem weird, director Zack Snyder has proven to be a valuable commodity in the month of March with previous films like 300, Sucker Punch and Watchmen all seeing spring releases. If anything, this guarantees that Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will be the massive box »
