As you'd expect with just three weeks to go to its release, Warner Bros.' publicity department ramped up the marketing for Man of Steel this past week. Pick of the promotional goodies was a brand new fourth trailer, which saw a heavy focus on the epic action set to be unleashed in Zack Snyder's hotly-anticipated reboot when General Zod (Michael Shannon) and Faora (Antje Traue) arrive »

Since the very first X-Men film was released at the turn of the century, 20th Century Fox’s biggest superhero franchise has been going through an up and down (mostly down) slope. Even though I consider X2 to be one of the finest of the comic book movie genre, ranking it among The Dark Knight and The Avengers as one of the best the medium can offer, subsequent sequels X-Men 3: The Last Stand and the much hated X-Men: The Last Stand has left a bad taste in many of the fans’ mouths, including myself.
Some salvation was delivered to us in the form of Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, which gave us the origin story of X-Men. The film was a breath of fresh air to many as it was the first true X-Men film that was not Wolverine heavy (but his cameo in the film was perfect »

Man of Steel may be one of the riskiest films of the year, but it’s also one of the most-talked-about releases of the summer movie season. The film is faced with rebooting the character following both the enormous success of The Dark Knight trilogy and the disappointment of director Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns.
For months, speculation has run rampant regarding exactly how Man of Steel will help Warner Bros. and DC finally launch a shared movie universe, and star Henry Cavill himself has offered his hopes for a Batman-Superman team-up in the near future. However, before any of that can happen, Man of Steel has to deliver for ...

I think it would be really interesting with the age-old Batman/Superman conflict because they are two different sides of the same coin and their methods are entirely different. And I think it would actually make for an interesting story as to why, first of all, they were going head to head and how. I think that would make a great story.
I also think that it would be a great story. I doubt they would use the story from Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Falls comic. It is really tragic story, and I don’t think that the general public is ready to see their favorite characters in that gritty of a situation.
Cavill was then asked if he knew if this »

The Flickering Myth writing team sit down to talk about the fourth trailer for Man of Steel....
After releasing what felt like a million posters (albeit awesome ones), Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures gave us a fourth trailer for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel this week - this time featuring more of Michael Shannon's General Zod.
So, what did the Flickering Myth writing staff think?
Martin Deer: This trailer compliments the epic third one so well: we've had the hope that is Superman, now we have the very real threat that is Zod. The stage is perfectly set. You can really see the 'First Contact' scenario at play, with Zod's message - which is brilliant, that would be a terrifying moment in real life and I imagine the story will capture that.
To address complaints I've seen: Superman can be pissed off. In fact, it is »
Until I can purchase a spiky, foam, blonde wig for cosplaying Cloud or an officially licensed Besaid Aurochs Blitzball then I have absolutely no use for the grand opening of Square Enix's online store. But if you're interested in the fantastic plastic figures from the awesome Play Arts Kai series or adorable Chocobo plushies, then you'll find them in one convenient location.
Additonally, pre-orders are now open for The Dark Knight Trilogy Play Arts -Kai- Batman which will be a Sdcc exclusive. He's got a pretty sweet metalic finish and if the other Prk figures are any indication, will sell out in the blink of an eye.

When asked if this movie is actually in the works, Henry Cavill offered this response.
"Who knows, I'm sure there's all sorts of ideas being thrown around at Warner Bros right now."
A new batch of promotional images for Man of Steel have been released.
Among the 10 pictures, seen in the gallery below, there are fresh glimpses of Clark Kent's (Henry Cavill) Kryptonian father and mother (played by Russell Crowe and Ayelet Zurer) and the Daily Planet's Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne).
Nokia debuted the stills through their Man of Steel hub.
Cavill recently discussed Nolan's involvement in the project, saying that he wasn't present during the shooting of the comic book film.
"I'm sure Zack had a phone call or two with him, but this is definitely Zack's baby," he said. "He was the man in charge, and we created the character together, as opposed to having too many outside influences."

Youtube user Jazzmanthemusician has unveiled a pretty funny mistake in Batman: The Dark Knight Rises that's making its rounds on the internet after initially being posted in November. The video shows a guy on the far left running up to attack Batman, stopping, and then falling to the ground before being struck! Pretty obvious error on the part of the extra and production team not to catch it!
Although if you wanted to spin this as an homage, this totally reminded me of one of my favorite scenes from Batman: The Animated Series. Watch both clips below.

Got a hot date coming up? Well, you may want to consider taking him or her to see Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness or Man of Steel as a new research study has revealed that over 77% of women rated superhero movies as being their ideal first date. Over two thirds of men - 62% - agreed! Roy Gower, Head of Film at Cineworld, said: "Superhero films are huge right now. The recent success of films like The Dark Knight, Iron Man and The Avengers has re-kindled our love for comic book heroes and whetted our appetites for the latest superhero instalment, Man of Steel, released on June 14." As part of their survey, the cinema chain also asked women which five superheroes they would most like to date. Iron Man came out on top, followed by Thor, Wolverine, Batman and Superman. It may just be time to start »

The Dark Knight trilogy has many memorable performances throughout each film. Whether it be actors who reprised their roles such as Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, Michael Caine as Alfred or Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, to actors who shined in their respective roles in only one of the films, such as Heath Ledger as the Joker or Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent… the trilogy is filled with examples of excellent portrayals.
However, there are performances throughout the trilogy that do not receive quite as much positive attention as they should get. Here are 5 performances that are overlooked in The Dark Knight trilogy…
5. Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox)
Morgan Freeman’s depiction of Lucius Fox in The Dark Knight trilogy is one example of seeing an accomplished actor portray the same character in the trilogy. Fox is one character who had yet to be included in a Batman film before the first film in the trilogy, »

Anthony Stokes explains why he thinks Comic Book Movies have become more than just the latest trend...
The last decade has been incredibly good to Comic Book Movies. Not only are there a significant amount of comic book movies coming out every year, but they're making a lot of money. Comic Book Movies used to be a once a year thing, and now they're coming within weeks of each other (this year alone sees the release of Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, Kick-Ass 2, R.I.P.D., The Wolverine, Red 2, 2 Guns, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and Thor: The Dark World). But all good things must come to an end eventually, right?
I would say no. Of course everything has an ebb and flow, and we may get to the point where we get back to one or two Comic Book Movies a year, but »

Well, the final theatrical trailer for Warner Bros.’ re-imagining of the DC comic-book icon and his journey from helpless infant on a distant planet to his calling as the saviour of the human race, has ultimately arrived. Henry Cavill takes the tile role as the Kryptonian super being forced to confront his villainous home world headcase General Zod after the former compatriot tracks him down on Earth.
Of all the blockbusters to come, as well as those already gone, Man Of Steel is the event movie of my summer and I’m desperate to see how Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot plays out on the big-screen. The epic supporting of Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Christopher Meloni and Kevin Costner, not forgetting The Dark Knight trilogy’s Chris Nolan and David S. Goyer on story and screenwriting duties, only heightens my anticipation for the film.

Man of Steel has premiered a final trailer before the movie's theatrical release next month.
The new trailer debuted through the movie's official website, following a static viral message that broadcast the message "you are not alone" in several different languages.
Michael Shannon features as villain General Zod in the new trailer, broadcasting a message demanding that Superman/Kal-El gives himself up within 24 hours and warning that planet Earth will "suffer the consequences" if he does not surrender.
Henry Cavill leads the cast of the Superman reboot, while the supporting cast features Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Clark Kent's Earth parents Jonathan and Martha Kent and Russell Crowe as Kal-El's Kryptonian birth father Jor-El.
How far did J.J. Abrams go to keep the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's "Star Trek Into Darkness" villain a secret? So far, that he manipulated certain footage to prevent media members from getting an advanced reveal at Cumberbatch's "Star Trek" name.
During a visit to the Bad Robot production studios last year, Abrams showed a group of journalists the "Star Trek Into Darkness" scene where Cumberbatch and Chris Pine's Captain Kirk fly through space in super suits. The sequence happens more than an hour into the film, after the true origin of Cumberbatch's villainous John Harrison is unveiled. (No spoilers here, but check IMDb or this HuffPost piece from Monday.)
"[Producer] Bryan Burk was the one who first proposed that we use the space jump sequence as a way of getting folks excited for the movie," co-writer Damon Lindelof told Slashfilm. "The challenge was obvious [because] this is After the reveal. »
