Critics and fans alike have constantly been bothered by the amount of damage Superman and Zod bestow upon Metropolis in Man of Steel. It's a contentious plot point that director Zack Snyder promises he will answer for in the follow-up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But while the climactic ending of that first movie will serve to propel the new plot forward, don't expect these superheroes and villains to take it easy on DC's iconic city.
New set photos have emerged, which show some of the damage inflicted upon Metropolis' city buses and police cars. These arrive courtesy of a fan on Twitter. Take a look:
Saw some other damage.. but probably not due to weather! #BatmanVSupermanpic.twitter.com/fP5Fo7rwBA

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…
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 »

It's getting hard to keep up with all of the villains (and heroes) rumored to be participating in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Heck, it's hard enough keeping up with the rumors about who wrote which version of a fake script that all of this info may or may not be coming from. And now there are fresh rumors that Doomsday will be making an appearance in the film, perhaps as one of the five villains people claim are on tap for this franchise installment. Hit the jump for more on the possible Batman v Superman Doomsday appearance. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Scoot McNairy, and Jeremy Irons. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on May 6, 2016. Bleeding Cool is reporting that some of their most reliable sources have »

Earlier today, it was reported that four more villains are going to be showing up in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice alongside Lex Luthor. Now a new rumor is circulating that a trio of lesser-known heroes may also be helping out in some capacity.
Badass Digest has gotten their hands on a pdf file that started circulating a few days ago, which claims to be the actual working screenplay for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And it is from here that Latino Review is believed to have gotten their information regarding the four new villains, which include Victor Zsazs, Moran Edge, David Cain and Amanda Waller.
Badass Digest has its doubts that the script in question is real, as it contains spelling and punctuation errors, and it caters to the fans with a tone that is not inline with Man of Steel.
Aquaman is revealed to show up »
Warner Bros. has released the first Batman v Superman image of Henry Cavill back in costume as the Man of Steel. It's a way of showing something "new" from the movie without really showing anything new, although it's far better than the image of Cavill just standing around in normal clothes and calling him "Clark Kent". The Superman costume remains the same, and Cavill still fills it out well. What's meant to spark speculation is the context of the image, which could be a depressing indicator of the movie to come. Frankly, it looks like Superman stumbled into Batman's movie, and this photo could be set in Gotham, a town where the sun never shines and no one ever smiles. I usually don't associate "Superman" with "gloomy", but that's what this image is. Maybe Warner Bros. can provide some balance by having the next official image show a confused Batman »

Well, rest assured ladies and gentlemen: Henry Cavill is still ridiculously handsome, and still looks really good in his Superman costume. This morning Warner Bros released the first official shot of the actor in his Kryptonian garb, from the upcoming sequel 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.' This comes a few days after that weird sort-of look at him as Clark Kent. Based on the grimness of the rest of the image, though, it looks like tough times could be ahead for the Man of Tomorrow.
In the photo Superman is standing on top of a rain-slicked rooftop, possibly in Gotham, because as the title of the movie suggests, he will be battling the Dark Knight (played by Ben Affleck) and certainly some of that battle must take place outside of Metropolis. The weather causes his big cape to ripple elegantly behind him, with Cavill's steely gaze aimed directly »

Independence Day was released in the Us 18 years ago today. Ryan looks at its ongoing impact on how summer movies are made and marketed...
In 1990, Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin were Hollywood outsiders. Devlin was a young New York-born actor who'd appeared in a few TV shows and movies, such as the 1985 comedy, Real Genius. Emmerich was a German filmmaker whose credits consisted of low-budget films such as The Noah's Ark Principle (1984), and Hollywood-Monster (1987). Emmerich's 1990 film, Moon 44, was about pilots defending mining colonies with space-faring helicopters, and featured a glum-looking Malcolm McDowell.
Dean Devlin was also among Moon 44's cast, and it was here that he forged a partnership with Emmerich: Devlin hated Moon 44's dialogue, so he went and wrote his own. Within two years, they'd made their first film together - Universal Soldier, written by Devlin, directed by Emmerich, and produced by Carolco. »
Earlier today, the latest report from the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice revealed new details about Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor character, who will not be sporting the traditional bald look from the comics. The villainous head of LexCorp will instead be sporting "a long, straight, surfer mop" of blonde hair, although it is believed that this hairstyle is being used towards the beginning of the movie, leaving room for Lex to go bald towards the end.
Another report from Batman-News has surfaced that reveal more details about Lex's personality.
"It's not Eisenberg's typical curly look - it's a bit longer, kind of loose and wavy, and it's dirty blonde. Eisenberg's Luthor has spastic mannerisms, like a 20-something guy that pounds energy drinks all day."
If you’re one of those people who thinks that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is overcrowded, you might want to turn back now, because a new report suggests that Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Aquaman won’t be the only superheroes in the film. According to The Daily SuperHero, everyone’s favorite speedster may be making a blink-or-you’ll-miss-it cameo as well.
That’s right, the Flash is the latest character rumored to appear in Bvs, though his role sounds like it won’t be very substantial, and will instead set the stage for his full appearance in the already-announced Justice League film.
According to one of The Daily SuperHero’s insiders, the Flash will appear in security camera footage that shows the scarlet speedster stopping a robbery in progress, as seen by a “sudden flash of wind.” Now, while that little save could easily be something »

Last week, we reported that a massive Superman statue is being constructed on the Detroit set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, although it wasn't known what the purpose of this statue is. Today, a new report reveals that a scene shot last week explains why the statue was created. There will be minor plot spoilers below, including another report that hints The Flash will have a cameo in the movie, along with new photos from the set that offer a better look at the LexCorp offices and logo, so read on at your own risk.
Batman-News reports that the production filmed scenes on Friday for a press conference where the statue was unveiled, as a tribute to Superman (Henry Cavill) saving the world in Man of Steel. The movie takes place roughly two years after Man of Steel, with members of both the Metropolis and Gotham City press »
As filming in Detroit continues on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman-News has received a set report detailing the unveiling of a 15-foot Superman statue in Metropolis, which you can see (pre-cgi enhancements) here….
According to the site’s report, “The statue was built to celebrate Superman saving the Earth in the first movie — Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice takes place about two years after the events of Man of Steel. Gotham and Metropolis news trucks and helicopters were on the scene to cover the Mayor’s speech and the statue unveiling. Elementary school kids wore “Superman Survivors” shirts and helped pull a sheet off the statue for the big reveal. They also released real doves to celebrate statue unveiling.”

Even though production is already under way on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, that doesn't mean that casting is over for this highly-anticipated superhero adventure, which puts Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) together on the big screen for the first time. A number of other characters from the comic books have already been confirmed, such as Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) and Alfred Pennyworth (Jeremy Irons), but as the title suggests, the movie will set the table for Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Justice League. Yesterday, a new, unconfirmed report surfaced that revealed Jason Momoa is playing Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Perhaps in response to the story, Jason Momoa posted a new photo on his Instagram account, where he is seen holding a pitchfork much like Aquaman's trident. Does this mean the actor has signed on to play Aquaman? Take a look at the photo, »
We've long heard rumors that Jason Momoa is officially cast in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It is said to be a small role that will expand into a large part in Justice League. At first, it was believed he was playing either Martian Manhunter or Doomsday. Last night, Hitfix confirmed that he is in both movies, and that he will be playing Aquaman.
This has not been confirmed by Warner Bros. and DC Comics, and according to this new report, it won't be confirmed for quite some time. Jason Momoa himself has denied any involvement with the project.
Hitfix go onto claim that director Zack Snyder has already finished designing the character and that Jason Momoa will begin shooting his role very soon. One big difference from the comic books, he may not be called Aquaman in these movies.

After the big rumor about Warner Bros’ 7-film DC movie plan broke this morning, a leaked photo from the set of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice may not be too exciting. But hey, news about this film has been so cryptic and secretive thus far that we’ll take any updates we can get!
Last week we heard that some scenes would be shot at LexCorp on June 12th and 13th, meaning we may soon see some more leaked set photos find their way onto the internet and spread like wildfire. We saw photos of what looked like an under-construction giant Superman statue a few days ago, and now have our first real glimpse at the LexCorp building, which will apparently be full of hipsters.
Honestly, there’s not much information to be gleaned from a photo like this. I must say though that the building looks a bit »

As Zack Snyder prepares to shoot a scene involving 8500 military extras later today, Batman-News has got its hands on some Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set photos from Detroit giving us a glimpse at LexCorp, as well as a military truck and Metropolis ambulances which will no doubt come into play once cameras start rolling…
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, 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), and Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) in as-yet-unrevealed roles. »

Production on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is underway, and although Superman destroyed Metropolis in Man of Steel, it looks like he's earned himself a commemorative statue for the sequel. A Michigan native snapped a photo of the statute with a green screen in the background. This tells us absolutely nothing about the movie, although you can speculate away at why Superman would be getting a statue. Hit the jump to check out the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice image. The film opens May 6, 2016 and stars The film also stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, and Laurence Fishburne.

Production is well under way on director Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but there has been very little information released about what is currently being shot. An unidentified insider from Batman-News reveals that the production will be shooting scenes at the LexCorp offices starting next week.
The offices are being described as a "Google-type" workplace with an edgy, youthful vibe filled with an eclectic mix of employees ranging from rock and roll types to hipsters and nerds. The scenes will be filmed on June 12 and 13, with the actors wearing layers with long sleeves, blazers and lightweight jackets. Jesse Eisenberg is reportedly involved in the scene, but that has not been confirmed.
Back in February, we reported that the first scene in the movie takes place at the LexCorp offices, where Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) takes a meeting with Lex Luthor, with Wayne seeking to join forces »
As he gears up to shoot the pic’s sequel, the still-untitled “Batman-Superman” movie, the director told Forbes that he’s merely depicting the “real world we live in.” Snyder said that fans are clinging to the more squeaky-clean Superman as depicted by Christopher Reeve in the iconic movies, instead of the comic book version of Superman, who wreaked massive damage.
“The thing I was surprised about in response to Superman was how everyone clings to the Christopher Reeve version of Superman,” he told Forbes. “How tightly they cling to those ideas, not really the comic book version, but more the movie version. … If you really analyze the comic book version of Superman, he’s killed, he’s done all the things. I guess the rules »

With Batman Vs. Superman gearing up to start production this spring, MoviePilot.com has unearthed several new details regarding Ben Affleck's Batman in this highly-anticipated superhero sequel. Of course, none of this has been confirmed yet, but if they do prove to be true, there will be plenty of spoilers listed below, so read on at your own risk.
We reported in September that Batman will be "tired and weary" in this sequel directed by Zack Snyder, but this new report indicates that Bruce Wayne will be 40 years old and "retired" from crimefighting for seven years, which is allegedly the time gap between Man of Steel and The Dark Knight Rises. This report also claims that the events of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight are being treated as "canon," although certain aspects such as Bane's death and Thalia's involvement will not be canon.
After the events of The Dark Knight Rises, »
