The team at How It Should Have Ended make fun and frenetic videos that give us alternate endings to big blockbuster films. Sometimes those endings are just playful and silly. Often, though, the “what if” endings point out large plot holes in the films they parody. The final video we see contains just a small fraction of the hilarious ideas they (and sometimes you) come up with. So what do they do with all those extra scenes that just don’t make it in? They make a compilation of cut clips, that’s what.
Often we write too many sketches when creating a Hishe and some scenes get left out. Sometimes they are cut because it didn't fit the flow of the main video. Sometimes they are cut because they aren't finished in time. Well rather than let them collect dust we bundled them all together in one collection so »

The Marvel movies are obviously much more lighter than the WB/DC movies. After all, Avengers had bunch of jokes and funny stuff, while Man of Steel was the movie where Superman broke Zod’s neck. Many people say that the DC movies are so dark gritty, but is that a bad thing? Let’s face it, two of the best and most influential comic-book movies in the last 15 years were Batman Begins and the Dark Knight. Both of these movies changed the game for comic-book movies. Iron Man was so good because it some queues from Batman Begins, as Marvel did a much serious and realistic version of Iron Man. Many people will say that the first X-Men movies were pretty realistic and dark, but it was only after the Batman Begins movies that Hollywood started to take comic-book movies much more serious. And I think we can all »
The site reports that the film is set in the Aokigahara forest at the base of Mt. Fuji, and centers on a young American woman (Dormer) who goes in search of her missing twin sister. Despite everyone’s warnings to “stay on the path,” Sara enters the forest determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, only to be confronted by the angry and tormented souls of the dead who prey on anyone who wanders the forest.
This will be director Jason Zada’s first feature length film. He has previously directed three short films, most recently Take This Lollipop (2011). The Forest is based on an original idea by David S. Goyer who wrote the screenplay for Batman Begins, Man of Steel and Batman v. »

Let’s Talk WB and DC Comics
It’s worth noting that while WB may seem to be pulling a Marvel, they really are not entirely. I think there will be cross promotion between titles, but each movie will stand on it’s own. So you won’t see them fighting something that turns into a Justice League possibility, but there is a twist here. With Superman (Man of Steel) we got a lot of Easter Eggs to other heroes, which proves that the universe is already shared. This is what DC could be doing to make their universe “special” just like Marvel having end of credits scenes to set up a big story.
On the flip side, WB is utilizing cross over events more prominently than Marvel is. Heroes won’t just be hinted at, »

20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to Dash Shaw’s — the creative mind behind comedy-drama, Bottomless Belly Button — independent graphic novel Doctors, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sources tell us that David Goyer is also on board to produce the project alongside his production company, Phantom Four.
In terms of the source material itself, Doctors follows a group of doctors (who would’ve thought?) who are as tech-savvy as they are medically brilliant. One day, the medical experts find themselves in possession of a technology that allows them to temporarily assimilate their own subconscious with that of the recently deceased and bring them back to the land of the living for a short period of time. However, a spanner is tossed in the works when the titular group come across a young mother who, despite her daughter’s pleas, doesn’t want to come back.
It’s an interesting premise, »

When Warner Bros. announced in April that Broadway star Ray Fisher will make his feature film debut as Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was believed to be a smaller role that would expand in Justice League. Little did we know that Warner Bros. planned on making this 27-year-old actor a major part of their DC Comics movie universe, after last week's announcement that he will have his own Cyborg movie in 2020. During a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor also confirmed that he will star in both Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, along with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and his stand-alone Cyborg movie.
The actor revealed that he was just as surprised as the fans, since he was told only a few hours before last week's huge announcement that he will be getting his own Cyborg movie. »
Anthony Stokes shares his concerns over Warner Bros.’ DC line-up….
I won’t hide the fact that I haven’t been the biggest fan of DC’s movie offerings. Anything from the last 20 years not starring Batman has not only been a disappointment, but many are considered among the worst of the genre. Anybody remember Jonah Hex and Batman & Robin? Man of Steel is admittedly better than Catwoman and a step in the right direction for creating a brand, but it still isn’t really a good movie. But now Warner Bros. is shaping up to be actual competition for Marvel by announcing its schedule for its upcoming DC slate through to 2020. Some of it looks good, and some of it problematic.

Ray Fisher will be making his DC cinematic debut in the Man of Steel follow up, Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although he will only play a minor role in Zack Snyder's sequel, Fisher's character Cyborg/ Victor Stone will then be receiving a spin off movie in 2020. EW spoke to the actor recently in the wake up Warner Brothers and DCs upcoming film slate announcement. 'I didn't know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character," he recalls, 'When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific in formation, I found out then and there. I didn't think I'd be getting my own stand alone film.' Funnily enough, the actor only found out from producers he was getting his own solo movie a few hours before the line up was publicly released. In typical fashion, »
Ray Fisher – who is set to portray Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in the DC movie universe – was just as surprised as fans when it was announced there would be a Cyborg standalone film in 2020. The actor found out at the same time the fans when Warner Bros. and DC announced their film line up last week.
Fisher told Entertainment Weekly: “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character, when I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.”
So look out for Fisher »

Charlie Cox (Stardust) was announced to play Daredevil on Marvel’s Netflix show of the same name a few months ago, and since then he has kept quiet about the project. We knew virtually nothing about the show prior to its panel at the New York Comic Con earlier this month where the cast spoke about working on the project [watch the panel here], and now Cox has divulged more information in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Check out what he had to say below…
“It’s great fun, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility, I wasn’t really aware of how vast the comic book world was until I became part of the Marvel universe. I went to Comic Con last week, and it’s really important to a lot of people. It really is. I’m having a great time.”
Cox went on to talk about research »

(Cbr) Empire has an interview with "Fury" director David Ayer that includes his first remarks regarding his comic book movie debut, the recently announced "Suicide Squad." "I can say that it's a 'Dirty Dozen' with supervillains," said Ayer of the well-established anti-hero team. "Then I can ask the question, 'Does a movie really need good guys?'" Since its debut in 1987, the Squad has included numerous DC villains as part of its constantly shifting roster, including Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Bronze Tiger and Harley Quinn. When asked by Empire how he would go about casting these unusual characters Ayer's answer was straightforward. "Like one would cast any other role. I don't know what I'm going to do. I’m going to do what I do in my typical fever dream of directing." "Suicide Squad" will be the third film in DC's slate of super hero films to star more than one super-powered character, »

Superman will appear at least three times in movies in the next five years. But will any of them be a standalone Man Of Steel adventure?
A further, potentially important casting rumour for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice landed over the weekend, which you can read about - with appropriate spoiler pre-warning - here. The bottom line remains of Zack Snyder's March 2016 movie is this: it's going to have an awful lot of DC characters in it.
Originally mooted as the follow-up to 2013's Man Of Steel, the film is said to pick up from where that movie left things, but also add a whole host of new faces. It's already well known that Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman are on board. But rumours suggest we might also get an appearance from Aquaman (as played by Jason Momoa), whilst Jesse Eisenberg joins as »

Of all the DC Comics movies announced last week, one in-development project was noticeably absent: the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s seminal and beloved comic Sandman. The last we heard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was working on the film with Man of Steel scribe David S. Goyer and Gaiman himself, with Skins and This is England scribe Jack Thorne on scripting duties.
Sandman‘s omission from the DC announcement raised some eyebrows, and left fans worried that the project had (once again) fallen off the rails. Luckily, that doesn’t appear to be the case. According to Gaiman himself, Sandman wasn’t included in the DC announcement because it’s not technically a DC property…
“It’s not a DC Comics film. It’s a Vertigo film. That’s a different slate of films, and a different announcement.”
So, fret not, Sandman fans! The film is still very much in the works, »

Big Eyes is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters of the 1950s and early 1960s. The artist earned staggering notoriety by revolutionizing the commercialization and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered though: Keane’s art was actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret (Amy Adams). The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a lie that had grown to gigantic proportions. Big Eyes centers on Margaret’s awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings, and her tumultuous relationship with her husband, who was catapulted to »
