You've seen the pictures, both official and unofficial, now see an unofficial glimpse at Ben Affleck‘s Batmobile in action on the set of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” An Instagram user captured footage of the Dark Knight's automotive sidekick chasing a Dodge Challenger through the streets of Detroit, where the Warner Bros. film, directed by Zack Snyder, is currently in production. See photo: Zack Snyder Spots a Stormtrooper on the Set of ‘Batman v. Superman’ and Has Him Arrested “Dawn of Justice” is not only a sequel to “Man of Steel,” but an introduction to “The Justice League, »

Move over FX. TNT is clearly stepping up its game in the area of blockbuster movie acquisition deals. The network has inked a licensing agreement with Marvel for the next five theatrical releases from Marvel Studios. This comes on the heels of its recent deal with Lionsgate to acquire network TV rights to the Hunger Games and Divergent movie franchises. TNT’s most recent pact includes the network television premiere windows for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, due in theaters next summer, and the third installment in the Captain America franchise, slated for release in 2016. Each of the five films is tentatively scheduled to premiere on TNT a little over two years after its theatrical release.
“Marvel’s brand of entertainment is a thrill ride for audiences, and we’re excited to be adding their next five blockbusters to TNT’s arsenal of high-quality genre fare,” said Deborah K. »

Every summer tells the same story: superheroes reign supreme at the global box office, with studios churning out sequel after reboot after prequel to capitalize on pop culture’s hottest trend. This year’s undisputed champion is Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which has raked in over $300 million domestically to date.
But while Marvel continues to dominate the big screen, rival publisher DC Comics is poised for a small screen coup. This fall, DC and Warner Bros. Television have three hotly anticipated comicbook properties slated to hit the air: the CW’s “Arrow” spinoff “The Flash”; NBC’s darker “Constantine” and Fox’s Batman prequel series “Gotham,” with CW procedural “iZombie” on deck for midseason. Looking ahead to next season, TNT is also nearing a pilot production order for “Titans,” a one-hour drama that will focus on DC’s younger heroes, while Fox just gave a put pilot production »

Take another look @ DC Comics' "Man Of Steel" comic book prequel on the news that Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions are developing a "Supergirl" live-action, dramatic TV series, from producers Greg Berlanti ("Arrow") and Ali Adler:
"...the mystery of the empty, open 'cryo-pod' in the movie 'Man of Steel' is no mystery at all...

"Set in the 'Krypton' planet's pre-apocalypse past, 20,000 years ago, Kara faces tragedy, battling Krypton’s first murderer in centuries, 'Dev-Em' and terraforming in a 'Fortress of Solitude' scout craft.

Further to "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" filming a memorial ceremony in the city of 'Metropolis', paying tribute to the thousands who died during the alien battles in director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel", take another look @ a 'destruction compilation', highlighting the carnage from that first film:
"...in the pantheon of superheroes, 'Superman' is the most recognized and revered character of all time. 'Clark Kent'/'Kal-El' (Henry Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination.
"Transported to Earth years ago from 'Krypton', an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question...Why am I here?
"Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents 'Martha' and 'Jonathan Kent', Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions.
"But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain »

I know @treinman already posted a picture of the twins but they were too cool! #BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/sBhMNhTJtp — Tim Malin (@D3T0N8R) September 16, 2014 They wouldn't let @treinman nor I take the billboard home so we had to settle for some photos. #BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/63PToAEFQ8 — Tim Malin (@D3T0N8R) September 16, 2014 Bang! Pow! Ka-boom!!! @treinman and I knew they'd blow one of 'em up! #BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/iN3PQnhALz — Tim Malin (@D3T0N8R) September 16, 2014 So, nothing too revealing here, but the fact that they're utilising a number of stunt Batmobiles shows that the vehicle will obviously see a lot of action in this movie, and the state of that truck might just be a sign that Gotham City is about to get as messed up as Metropolis was in Man of Steel! Remember, the first official image of the Batmobile can be found by clicking here. »
Marvel fans who can’t get enough of the demigod Loki may be drawn to the massive monster franchise Legendary is cooking up, as it’s just been announced that Tom Hiddleston will play the lead role in the upcoming King Kong origins movie, Skull Island. A new director has also been attached to the film that will explore the seemingly prehistoric island teeming with colossal creatures.
Legendary announced today that Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct Skull Island off a screenplay by Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein. Skull Island was revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con during a surprising teaser video that concluded with an amped-up King Kong. In late July we reported that Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) had been offered the director’s chair for the project, but now it is Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) who will helm the large-scale adventure.

Legendary announced its plans to make a feature film based on the cinematic origins of King Kong during this year's San Diego Comic Con with an original draft of the script by Max Borenstein. Previous works have touched on the island, but staying on and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions. Universal Pictures will distribute the film on November 4, 2016.
Vogt-Roberts directed and executive produced the Sundance darling The Kings Of Summer. He has also directed the pilot and multiple episodes of FX's new series "You're the Worst" and is set to direct Metal Gear Solid for Sony. His other credits include directing the pilot of "Cocked" for Amazon Studios and directing and executive producing the concert documentary Nick Offerman: American Ham. He is represented by UTA, 3 Arts »

Despite its constant appearance in the news cycle, we still don’t know very much about Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, especially when it comes to the version of the Caped Crusader that we’ll see on screen. No two Batman interpretations are completely alike, and from the sound of it, Ben Affleck will play a far different Batman than Christian Bale did in the Dark Knight trilogy.
We’ve already heard reports that this version is in his mid-40s, making him a bit older than previous versions of the character, and that he’s likely been operating in the shadows of Gotham for quite some time. This darker, more seasoned crime fighter will draw inspiration from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, and even has a massive and powerful Batmobile to prove it.

For some reason, there was a rumor that a Batmobile had been stolen from the set of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Bleeding Cool picked up the story from CBS News of all places, but it turned out to be completely false. How do we know? Well, aside from the official confirmations that not even one of the several Batmobiles on set had been stolen, director Zack Snyder decided to continue his Star Wars photo gags (previously seen with a Jedi Superman and Batman on Tatooine) by having another recognizable character from a galaxy far, far away apprehended by police for trying to steal Batman's ride. Here's the photo Zack Snyder posted on Twitter over the weekend: Case closed. pic.twitter.com/fVyENoksFp — ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) September 13, 2014 Check out the most recent official photos of the armed and badass Batmobile right here!

Another day, another mysterious Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice/Star Wars crossover from Zack Snyder. The director of the DC Comics sequel tweeted on Saturday a photo of two Gotham City police officers, the newly debuted Batmobile and a Stormtrooper who was being shoved into the cop car, all with an elusive caption: "Case closed." The tweet is the latest in a series, following a shot of Man of Steel star Henry Cavill holding a lightsaber and dubbed a "Super Jedi" and of the caped Batman traversing a mountain with R2-D2 by his side. He's been tagging Star Wars: Episode VII

When Ben Affleck was announced as playing The Dark Knight in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Internet virtually exploded, with opinions ranging from those who felt that it’s the worst thing to happen to the character since bat nipples, to those who simply said that Affleck was “the bomb in Phantoms.”
In an interview with the Sunday Times here in the UK, Affleck talked about donning the cowl in the hope that it could help him develop some of his smaller independent movies, “I hope it’s true,” the actor said with half a smile. “You’re always thinking about the momentum you’re trying to build in your career. There are dual thought processes – on the one hand, you’re going, ‘What’s interesting to me?’ On the other hand, you’re thinking, ‘How do I give myself the opportunity to do those things? »

Earlier in the week Zack Snyder gave us our first official look at the Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, while yesterday brought a crazy – and untrue – rumour suggesting that someone had stolen the Dark Knight’s ride from the Detroit set of the DC ensemble. Well, Snyder has now had some fun with those rumours, posting another Batman v Superman / Star Wars mash-up image showing Gotham Police arresting a Stormtrooper for the theft with the caption “Case Closed”. Check it out…

In light of yesterday's (debunked) rumor that Batman V Superman's Batmobile had been stolen by Detroit locals, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder took to Twitter to continue the lighthearted joking between himself and Star Wars director Jj Abrams, but also revealed the criminals behind the attempt on Batman's favourite automobile: the Stormtroopers!

Not to go all Matrix Reloaded on you, but film criticism is a great example of causality. You watch a film of a certain quality and you form an opinion. Cause (whether the film is good) and effect (what you think). Simple, right?
Unfortunately, sometimes it operates a bit differently; people form an opinion of a film before they see it, with the finished product itself having no impact on what they view on it. It’s the sort of thing that would drive The Merovingian insane.
This is where a fan-boy mentality comes from, with audiences fully prepared to overlook whatever a films flaws may be out of unconditional love for a property. But on the other side of the coin is people who go into a film already hating it. At least when people say they dislike The Dark Knight Rises or Man Of Steel, two »

The Flickering Myth writing team discuss the new Batmobile…
After a few photos of the Batmobile for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice leaked online, a rather perturbed Zack Snyder took to Twitter and revealed the first official photo of the Batmobile in all of its glory. It seems to have split opinion among the Internet, but what did our writers make of it?
Be sure to also check our evolution of the Batmobile.
Tom Jolliffe: It’s design gone mad. There’s too much going on and ultimately it looks like it would be ten times worse to drive than the Nolan Batmobile. Bats would be better off in a Nissan Micra with a bit of bullet proof glass fitted.
Tom Roach: I really like the new look. I’m very happy that the new version of the Batmobile has very little resemblence to the tumbler in the Dark Knight Trilogy. »

Several times during Zack Snyder.s Man of Steel, particularly during the more heinously destructive sequences, it seemed like screenwriter David S. Goyer was more inspired by Rob Liefeld.s morally inept superhero Supreme than the Superman that everyone else grew up with. Snyder' flick made over $650 million, so it should surprise no one that Liefeld has been getting calls from Hollywood about securing the rights to his Supreme comic series. That is, unless your superpower is being surprised by everything. Liefeld took to Twitter for a little humblebragging, saying that not just one but two studios had their literature departments call him about film rights to Supreme, all in the same week. Can we assume Fox, Disney, Sony and Warner Bros. aren.t involved, given their ties to the more marquee names of the comic world? Ponder that while taking a peek at Liefeld.s tweet. So that's Two »
Over the past few days several set pictures featuring the new Batmobile from Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice began sprouting up on Instagram and Twitter, but now the director has revealed an official first look at the vigilante's not-so-road-approved tank. Clearly inspired by the Tumbler in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy by way of Austin Powers, "I want a giant freaking gun on the front." In all seriousness though, it looks cool enough and I can see Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) rocking this thing down the street, making due with whatever destruction comes of it. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is the highly anticipated action adventure from director Zack Snyder, starring Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as BruceWayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, »
