With trailers now in theaters and the 2016 release date slowly inching closer, speculation is growing about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Most people assume—probably correctly—that Batman will leave the Man of Steel lying in defeat. Batman’s popularity is such that bat-fans would riot if the Dark Knight should lose. However, the fact is…Batman Should lose, and here are five good reasons why.
Batman is the most popular super hero in the world. That’s hard to dispute. Starting with the success of the Batman: The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel, continuing through the staggeringly popular Nolan/Bale films, Batman is the king of comic characters. The fervor people have for this character is such that fans consider him unbeatable given the proper prep-time. That will probably affect the script of the Batman v Superman film, and Superman will end up flat on his back. »

"I gotta hustle," said Johansson about her acting career.
"Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers.
'Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work — theater, producing... this thing with 'Esquire'..."
March 2009, Johansson first signed on to play Marvel Comics' Russian spy 'Natasha Romanoff' aka the 'Black Widow' in the feature "Iron Man 2", as an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark' (Robert Downey Jr.) aka 'Iron Man'.
She was cast only after a scheduling conflict forced actress Emily Blunt to drop out of the part.

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is the epic return of cult classic Wet Hot American Summer, with the 2001 movie coming to the small screen in Netflix's new series, which debuts Friday. While it's clear that this series will already please fans, just judging from having the original cast assembled, there's another detail about the cast that will make superfans happy. At the Netflix day at this Summer's TCA press tour, showrunner and star Michael Showalter (Coop!) was talking about how the original cast all came together and how they wanted "every single cast member back." Even, he mentioned, the "indoor kids." Remember the "indoor kids"? In the movie, when David Hyde Pierce's professor character, Henry, wants to teach some of the kids of Camp Firewood about astrophysics, he goes to the cafeteria and asks where he can find such kids - calling them "the indoor kids. »
Having hit the bullseye as Marvel’s ace archer Hawkeye in the Avengers franchise, he is back this week as Agent Brandt in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Here, we celebrate his best performances
It’s been a blockbusting summer for Jeremy Renner that continues with this week’s release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, where he stars as right-hand man Agent Brandt. The 44-year-old actor scored a bullseye when he was cast as a reoccurring character in Marvel’s The Avengers franchise. He’ll be on the big screen again as ace archer Hawkeye in Captain America: Civil War next year but it’s often forgotten that he started out as more of a character actor, with intense performances in smaller films, often playing unstable characters. Here’s a list of Renner’s non-Marvel career highlights.

'Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation': Tom Cruise. 'Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation': Tom Cruise, the last action hero There are two impossible missions in the latest Mission: Impossible. The first involves Chechen terrorists, political assassinations, the Vienna Opera House, and a car that unlocks when the user places his hand on the driver's side window (Detroit, get on that). The other impossible mission, one that is not only accepted and completed, but conquered and victoriously ground into dust, is proving that 53-year old Tom Cruise is still an action star. As Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation demonstrates with cruel ease, Cruise isn't just an action hero. In the post-movie star age, he is, with apologies to a certain Austrian bodybuilder whose drawing power is all but terminated, the last action hero. What makes him thus is not just his supreme confidence, compact good looks, and million dollar smile. The camera has »

Chris Hemsworth, aka the Sexiest Man Alive, is following his Thor fame with a couple of comedy roles -- "Vacation" and the new "Ghostbusters" reboot -- but he's also making waves in the thriller "In the Heart of the Sea." The movie is based on the real-life story of the sinking of the whaleship Essex, which inspired the novel "Moby-Dick," and it's headed to theaters December 11. Ron Howard directed the movie, which stars Chris, Cillian Murphy, and Tom Holland, aka the new Spider-Man.
Entertainment Tonight got a first look behind the scenes and, in the on-set video, Chris talks about the cast's 500-calorie-a-day diet to be convincingly starved on screen. Ron Howard mentions that he talked to Tom Hanks about how to lose weight for a film, since the "Cast Away" star has done that a couple of times now.

It's been two decades, and still, the waves from the tsunami that was "Waterworld" have not receded.
Released 20 years ago this week (on July 28, 1995), the post-apocalyptic epic about the survivors of a drowned Earth became known as one of the most bloated flops of all time. That reputation wasn't really fair (the movie eventually broke even), but it was the then-most expensive movie ever made.
For a year before the film's release, stories leaked out about the waterlogged production's near-disastrous setbacks and its ego clashes between star Kevin Costner and his hand-picked director, Kevin Reynolds. Punsters were calling the movie "Fishtar" and "Kevin's Gate." By the time "Waterworld" finally came out, its underwhelming reception was a self-fulfilling prophecy. Costner's career as a bankable leading man has never really recovered.
In honor of the film turning 20 years old today, here are 20 facts you may not know about "Waterworld."
1. Initially, "Waterworld" was »

For those who have seen Ant-Man in theaters, there are two post-credit scenes, one which sets up the future of a certain Ant-Man character, Evangeline Lilly's Hope Van Dyne, and another that teases Captain America: Civil War. Earlier today, Marvel released a photo from the first end credits scene, but there will be spoilers for those who haven't seen the movie yet. This is your last chance to avoid any spoilers, so from here on out, read on at your own risk.
One of the running sub-plots throughout Ant-Man is that Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) resents her father Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) for choosing Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) to become the Ant-Man. Towards the end of the movie, Hank reveals that his wife and Hope's mother Janet was killed during a mission, while she was wearing the first version of The Wasp suit. He didn't want to lose »
For those who haven't seen Ant-Man in theaters quite yet, there will be Spoilers for one of the post-credits scenes below, so read on at your own risk. There are actually two post credit scenes, one which features Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), and another that helps set up Captain America: Civil War, which is currently filming in Atlanta. This is your last chance to avoid any spoilers, so proceed at your own risk.
The second post-credit scene features Captain America (Chris Evans) and The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) as they have finally caught up with The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). The Winter Soldier's robotic arm is caught in some sort of device, as both Cap and Falcon try to figure out how to get him loose. Falcon says that he "knows a guy," as the scene ends, inferring that he will bring Scott Lang »

Disney/Marvel is claiming that Ant-Man, with $24.765M, will retain the #1 spot at the box office, narrowly beating out the Sony newcomer Pixels, which even that studio is claiming made only $24M for the weekend. As a group the top 12 films earned an estimated $140.6M. That's 2.4% more than last year's $136.8M, top-heavy, top 12 when Lucy led the competition with $43.9M for the three days. That Luc Besson/Scarlett Johansson film won out over Hercules, the Dwayne Johnson vehicle, which came in second with $29.8M. Ironically, if that $29.8M finish had been this year, Hercules would easily have been #1. It's a testament to how disappointing that Pixels opening is. The Adam Sandler vehicle, on 3,723 screens, should have had cross-generational nostalgic appeal, much like last year's Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles, which opened to $65.6M in early August. But Pixels relied heavily, too heavily it turns out, on appealing to a generation that »

Critics have long despised his films, but the appeal of the Adam Sandler comedy label amongst wider audiences seems to be on the wane too. Despite a fun high-concept, the critically derided Sandler-led "Pixels" opened this weekend to $24 million and second place.
It fell behind Disney's "Ant-Man" which scored first place and $24.8 million in its second outing, bringing it to a $106.1 million stateside haul. Both films opened in the wake of a cinema shooting in Louisiana which saw three deaths and nine injuries, and has prompted discussion of consumers steering clear of cinemas.
Two other new films opened. Fox's "Paper Towns," the next film from social media celeb and "The Fault in Our Stars" author John Green, opened to $12.5 million which was only about half what was projected. The $12 million budget means it'll be profitable, but it certainly hasn't gone past the core base like 'Fault' seemed to.
