Catching up with Hans Zimmer at the Oscars this past weekend, MTV managed to grab a few comments from the composer about his work on the upcoming DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, asking him whether he plans to develop individual themes for each of the heroes.
“I’m trying, I’ll put it that way,” states Zimmer, who has previously stated that he plans to tackle Superman, whilst handing Batman over to Junkie Xl. “We’re in early days. But yes, of course, ideally that’s what you want to do.”
Zimmer was also asked if Warner Bros. has him down to score any future DC movies, with the composer responding that: “Look, the studio is going to hedge its bet, if I ruin this one…. And at the same time you have to remember I come from ten years of doing Batman, so it’s really »

“The casting director got in touch with me. I got to know her a bit through the first project, Man of Steel because she had to hunt me down a little bit; she just called me directly, which is always nice. It’s more personal. We filmed mostly in August; I was out in Detroit. Back a little bit in September. I can tell you that I think it’s going to be badass! They’re just such an awesome team. The bits that I was on set for look fantastic; everyone in it is fantastic. It »

Jason Momoa was announced last year as playing Aquaman in the DC Cinematic Universe, and while his first appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still over a year a way, fans are keen to get any little bit of information they can about the film.
During a panel at the Sundance Film Festival, Momoa has offered up some new details, responding to a question from a fan about what we can expected by stating: “Well, things are going to be a little different. When I first went in I met with Zack [Snyder] and his idea is pretty amazing. When I went in, he told me … my jaw kind of dropped. My jaw doesn’t normally drop. What he has planned for the DC world and for … definitely for Aquaman is something that, you know… I think I was brought on for a certain reason and they got »

Shannon played General Zod in Man of Steel but due to his character’s fate in that film, it was thought unlikely that he would return for the latest instalment in the series. However, Shannon was spotted alongside Henry Cavill in Chicago a few months back, and now a new report from Comic Book is claiming that General Zod will appear in the new movie, with his body serving as the basis for Doomsday.
“His corpse is stolen (or perhaps just acquired, given his military contacts in most versions of the modern mythology) by Lex Luthor and experimented on, presumably in the hopes of finding a weakness to exploit against Superman. In the course of his experimenting, we’ve been told that he “triggers the Doomsday genome,” causing the corpse to reanimate as »

With his latest film, The End of the Tour, premiering at this month’s Sundance Film Festival, Variety caught up with Jesse Eisenberg about the film, but also dropped in a few questions about another small indie film he has coming out next year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
While Eisenberg didn’t divulge too much, particularly about his hairstyle for the film, the actor did suggest that he would be more than happy to reprise the role in any future DC film, let alone a Batman v Superman sequel.
“I would love to,” says Eisenberg. “It’s a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play.”
Rumours are abound that Luthor is set to appear in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, whether in a cameo or as the film’s big bad. But while he has obvious excitement about the role and the forthcoming film, »

A new image of a Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice crew member shirt has been making waves online today, and for good reason.
Not only does it offer up a great illustrated look at an armored Batman facing off with Henry Cavill’s Superman in what’s very reminiscent of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, but it uses a quote from that seminal comic as well: “…Remind them that giants walk the Earth.”
Interestingly, the quote is actually only part of what Miller originally wrote: “We must not remind them that giants walk the Earth.” If the actual quote is in Batman V Superman at all, perhaps Snyder is paraphrasing or reworking it. Or maybe it’s just included here because it looks badass on the T-shirt.

Ah, yes. The big fight. Ever since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was announced (well, it was Batman vs Superman back then), fans have gathered around proverbial water coolers around the web to discuss how it would it wall play out. What happens when a mortal martial artist meets a demigod that loves punching things for a spirited round of fisticuffs? Will it be the central battle of the film? Will it be a short, fan service-y sequence that mainly acts as a build-up to other, greater developments?
