New rumours about Batman’s costume in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

11 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Another day, another Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rumour. Yesterday we heard that Doomsday designs have been spotted around the offices and today, we have another source who has something to say about Batman’s suit for the epic team-up.

A source by the name of “shoeless” has told Batman-on-Film that The Dark Knight’s costume is “steel grey and black. It’s mostly made of foam rubber even though it appears to be ‘cloth.’ It has the muscles built into the suit (which I think is supposed to be “armor” under the ‘cloth’ bodysuit.”

This also ties in with what Kevin Smith had to say about the Batsuit when the first image of Batfleck landed online.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on May 6th 2016, with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois »

The Beautiful and the Damned Dirty Apes: A History of The Planet of The Apes

11 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Planet of The Apes movies occupy a curious netherworld of critical opinion. With each film, the budget was sawn in half, leading to a successive pattern of diminishing returns that led to a cheapening of its esteem. The spin-off TV show was quickly cancelled, further dulling the lustre and few people even remember the animated series that finally put the Apes to bed until a rude awakening in 2001.

However, for all their child-pleasing capers (the family-friendly G rating was a mandatory stipulation from the studios), the Apes movies deftly juggled important themes and arguments about slavery, free-will, nuclear war, vivisection, racism and oppression, and man’s innate capacity for cruelty. In pure storytelling terms, the circuitous plot links the first five movies (and the prequel Rise of The Planet of The Apes) into a pleasing, if relentlessly pessimistic, self-perpetuating full-circle.

Latest Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Rumors Point To Doomsday

10 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s getting a bit difficult to keep up with all of the villain and hero appearances rumored for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, especially with that fake script floating around. Before we jump into the latest rumor to hit the web though, let’s run down what we officially know.

The likes of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are all guaranteed to appear and have been cast. Victor Stone a.k.a. Cyborg will also have a small cameo, played by Ray Fisher, that will set him up for a future Justice League appearance. Then there’s Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and returning Man of Steel cast members Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne.

That’s it. Now, as far as rumors go, there have been plenty. We’re pretty sure Aquaman will have a small cameo as well, and that he’ll be played by Jason Momoa, »

Doomsday getting ready for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

10 July 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He was featured in the supposedly fake script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (read our review and breakdown here), but this rumour hasn’t surfaced from that script, but rather sources for Bleeding Cool, who claim that Doomsday designs have been spotted.

In DC Comics lore, Doomsday is the character that killed Superman in the 1992 in the Doomsday! series which is now more commonly known as Death of Superman. In the fake script leaked online they re-enact the Death of Superman storyline which leads the reveal of a Superman statue, not unlike the one that is being built on set.

However, the website does go to lengths to point out: “Now, of course, much can change in the production process. This may be used purely for flashback purposes on the screen, looking at the life (and death) of Superman. It may be purely for promotional efforts to accompany the film. »

Everything we know so far about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

10 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel may have crafted their own wide-spanning cinematic universe, but DC and Warner Bros will strike back from 2016 with the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Zack Snyder's sequel to last summer's Man of Steel.

We may be just under two years away from release, but cameras are already rolling and fan anticipation is cranking up. Digital Spy rounds up everything you need to know on the superhero epic below...

DC Comics' iconic heroes will come to blows…

When Zack Snyder announced the crossover movie at Comic-Con last year he got his Man of Steel star Harry Lennix to read a line spoken from Batman to Superman in Frank Miller's landmark comic The Dark Knight Returns: "I want you to remember, Clark. In all the years to come. In all your most private moments. I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I »

O’Connell Shines In New ‘Unbroken’ Trailer

10 July 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The second trailer for Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut Unbroken has just landed and we’ll tell you what; anyone who doesn’t yet know the name Jack O’Connell is going to be hearing about little else in the coming months. The film, adapted for the screen by the Coen Brothers, is the harrowing true-life survival story of Louis Zamperini (O’Connell), an Olympian and war hero who along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.

The trailer footage of Zamperini growing up, with C.J. Valleroy as the younger version of O’Connell, looks great as does the footage of him as an Olympian. However, where the movie looks set to come into its’ own is the prisoner-of-war survival story. We know O’Connell is »

John Goodman in talks to star in Bad Robot's thriller Valencia

9 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

John Goodman is in talks to star in upcoming thriller Valencia.

Dan Trachtenberg will direct the film, produced by Bad Robot and Insurge Pictures, a division of Paramount which distributes "micro-budget" projects.

The film is said to take place mostly in an underground cellar, following a young girl who loses consciousness in a car accident.

The girl - who is yet to be cast - awakes in the cellar with a mysterious man (Goodman), who tells her that the world has been devastated by a nuclear attack.

Goodman, perhaps best known for his roles in Roseanne and Argo, has worked with Paramount in the past, most recently voicing a Transformer in Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Trachtenberg, who directed the short fan film Portal: No Escape, was named last year as the director of New Line's planned adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's acclaimed comic book series Y: The Last Man. »

Kevin Smith to address rumours about him writing a fake Batman v Superman script

8 July 2014 2:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, a report emerged suggesting that all of the “scoops” we’ve heard about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice these past few weeks have in fact been sourced from a fake script, which Kevin Smith has allegedly penned as a diversionary tactic for Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder.

The title page from the script that has been doing the rounds claims that David S. Goyer and Chris Terrio are the authors, and the screenplay itself is packed with fan service and spelling errors, which has drawn its authenticity into question. And now Kevin Smith has taken to Twitter to announce that he’ll comment on the speculation tomorrow:

 

Riddle me this, riddle me that! Did I write a diversionary script for the Bat? Let me tell you a story… Tomorrow morning at 11am Pst.

— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) July 8, 2014

Interesting that he didn’t just come out and deny it… »

Watch the Devilish New Trailer for David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' (Video)

7 July 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well, here it is: the brand new trailer for what might be our most anticipated movie for the rest of 2014 (at least if we're talking about movies that don't involve talking raccoons) -- David Fincher's "Gone Girl," the twisty new thriller starring Ben Affleck that is based on the equally twisty, best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn (who also wrote the screenplay). And folks: it's going to be good.

This trailer is a bit more fleshed out than the original, laying down the basics for the four people out there who didn't read the book, with Affleck becoming suspect #1 after his wife (Rosamund Pike from "The World's End") goes missing. Anything else, especially given the tricky nature of the story, would drift uncomfortably into the forbidden territory of spoiler-world, so we'll try to keep things to a minimum, although Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Missi Pyle, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit »

Did Kevin Smith write the “fake” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice script leaked online?

5 July 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems like a never-ending war for “scoops” and speculation between Star Wars: Episode VII and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Earlier this week rumours of plot details and multi-villain appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were reported by Latino Review, based on a script that was leaked. Since those reports, it has been claimed that the script was a fake and leaked on purpose to throw “scoop” sites off the real scent of what the movie is about.

Well, now Movieweb are claiming that their sources have told them that the leaked script was written by Clerks director Kevin Smith.

Here’s what the report says:

“Up until last year I worked for as a Pa for a Warner Bros. exec until I was promoted to marketing. It was here I and several others where approached to work, directly and indirectly, for Susanne Knoll and sometimes Deborah Snyder. »

A trio of villains rumoured for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

3 July 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today we got our first look at Henry Cavill suited up as the Man of Steel in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but preceding that a new rumour emerged via Latino-Review, who claim to have uncovered a trio of secondary villains set to join Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in the DC ensemble.

According to the site, Ben Affleck’s Batman will tussle with the deranged serial killer Victor Zsasz early on in the film in Gotham, while Morgan Edge will feature as a PR exec at LexCorp and the assassin David Cain will be hired by Luthor’s bodyguard Mercy (rumored to be played by Tao Okamoto) to set up a hit. The report goes on to suggest that previous rumours about Metallo and The Joker are inaccurate, as well as suggesting that Amanda Waller will also feature in the cast. As always, don’t take this »

First image of Superman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

3 July 2014 4:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen Henry Cavill in his civilian duds as intrepid reporter Clark Kent, and now we’ve got an image of him in his boy scout uniform. USA Today has an exclusive shot of the Man of Steel, looking all massive and stoic…

USA Today adds, “‘Dawn of Justice‘ continues to immerse Superman on Earth by working at the Daily Planet as Clark Kent along with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne). But it also takes him to new environments such as Gotham City and introduces larger threats, including Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). The debuting heroes Superman meets will affect his perspective on Earth and on the ones he loves, and Snyder feels his convictions will be drawn into question as well.”

Head on over there to USA Today to check out the full interview where Synder also discussed the ‘v’ in Batman v Superman and »

We’ve seen Ben Affleck suited up as The Dark Knight and Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, and now we have our first look at Henry Cavill as Clark Kent on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice thanks to a set photo posted by The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.
