Casting Walking Dead characters in Batman – watch the first episode of Flickering Myth’s Jump Cut

2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Two actors from the hit AMC zombie drama The Walking Dead are in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – the lovely Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays super bad guy Negan. They will be Martha and Dr. Thomas Wayne respectively, Bruce Wayne’s mum and dad.

It got me thinking: how would the characters they play in The Walking Dead, and the other principle cast, best translate into the Batman mythology? And, as the second half of The Walking Dead beings this Sunday, why not devote the first episode of Flickering Myth’s new weekly YouTube show Jump Cut to the question? You can watch the video below, or, if you fancy text-based fantasy casting scenarios, the transcript is just beneath that.

First, the obvious one. Rick Grimes, the main man in Walking Dead, would be Bruce Wayne Batman. Apart from both being their respective universes’ central characters, »

Zack Snyder on the Justice League’s involvement in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

5 February 2016 3:08 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As well as bringing DC’s two biggest icons together on the big screen for the very first time, Warner Bros.Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will also pave the way for the two-part Justice League movie by featuring Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash, and director Zack Snyder has been discussing the role they’ll play during an interview with Hall of Justice.

“As far as the other Justice League characters go, they play a very small role,” states Snyder. “It’s really just a whisper they exist. Except for Wonder Woman, we see her really well. But really, the movie is about Batman and Superman. And we really take time with them and we really drill down on the why of them and what they stand for and their beliefs and them as characters. That’s pretty much the why of the movie. But again as I said, »

Zack Snyder on Man of Steel: “If you’re a comic book fan, you know that I didn’t change Superman”

5 February 2016 12:22 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact the movie is almost three years old, Zack Snyder is still coming under fire from some fans for his handling of Superman in the 2013 reboot Man of Steel.

Appearing on the Hall of Justice podcast to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Snyder has once again addressed complaints about the film, stating that comic book fans who know the true canon of the Man of Steel know he didn’t change Superman.

“I was pretty ready for it,” said Snyder with regards to the backlash. “I knew that we were really updating a beloved character. I don’t think ‘changing him’ — People are always like ‘you changed Superman.’ If you’re a comic book fan, you know that I didn’t change Superman. If you know the true canon, you know that I didn’t change Superman. If you’re a fan of the old movies, »

Simon Kinberg on the X-men Universe Continuity, and Where Deadpool and Gambit Fall

5 February 2016 9:30 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The X-men movie franchise is definitely one muddled beast. It started off pretty straight forward with X-men all the way through X-men: The Last Stand. Things get a little bit weird with X-men Origins: Wolverine, a film that is still technically canon, but is largely ignored in the grand scheme of things. The timeline gets more interesting with X-men: First Class. It's a period piece, and as such, logically takes place before any of the other X-men films (with the potential exception of X-men Origins: Wolverine, which takes place throughout time--but again, the less said about that film, the better). The Wolverine takes place after all the X-men films.

So while it's all over the place, it's not terribly confusing by this point. But then we have X-men: Days Of Future Past, a film that holds as both a sequel to X-men: The Last Stand, The Wolverine, and X-men: First Class, »

4 February 2016 12:44 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, FX's upcoming X-Men TV series Legion added its first cast member, with Fargo star Rachel Keller signing on as the female lead, although her character wasn't identified. Today we have word from Variety that three more cast members have been added, Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza and Jean Smart. The project reunites Jean Smart with Rachel Keller and Fargo series creator Noah Hawley.

Dan Stevens is portraying the lead character David Haller. Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he's confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.

10 Ways That Fox Can Make Sure The Wolverine 3 Is An Instant Classic

4 February 2016 8:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If the rumors are to be believed, it looks like Hugh Jackman won’t be playing X-Men favorite Wolverine for much longer. While that could mean saying goodbye to the character on film for good, most likely Jackman will be replaced for future entries in the franchise. Either way, the actor reportedly doesn’t have long left in the X-universe.

One concern is the prospect that Jackman could end his term without a truly great Wolverine movie to his name. The Wolverine is promising in places but ultimately disappointing, while the less said about X-Men Origins the better. As Jackman winds down his X-Men tenure, his final movie – The Wolverine 3 – approaches. After two duds, however, it’s more trepidation than excitement that we’re feeling.

More News From The Web

According to Jackman, the next (final?) Wolverine film’s script is finished, and the movie at present has a tentative release date of March 3rd, »

Scoot McNairy rumoured to be another villain in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

2 February 2016 12:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the film coming out in under two months, rumours and speculation are still running rampant for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, particularly when it comes to the bad guys. We’ve heard potential rumours of Bizarro showing up in the movie via some Lego sets (and a seemingly concrete confirmation) and there was a rumour a while back that villains such as KGBeast would show up at some point. We already know that Lex Luthor and Doomsday are in the anticipated team-up, but a new rumour suggests that another villain will be on the big screen.

It is still unknown who Scoot McNairy will be playing in the movie – with speculation saying he’s Jimmy Olsen, Metallo and even Green Lantern – but Latino-Review say they’ve got the inside scoop. According to the website, McNairy is playing an anonymous pawn in Lex Luthor’s plan, and was left »

Avatar 2 and Wolverine 3 set to start shooting this spring

A new report suggests production on the final Wolverine film and the first Avatar sequel is edging closer...

Both Avatar 2 and The Wolverine 3 are sequels that seem to be without shooting start dates. James Cameron has been working on his three planned Avatar sequels for many years now, without any obvious sign that they're going in front of the cameras. Meanwhile, Hugh Jackman has been insistent that his Wolverine swansong - to be directed by James Mangold - wouldn't enter production until the script was where it needed to be.

In fact, Jackman revealed just last week that he's back doing the required physical work to become Wolverine for the final time, and he also said that the screenplay was very close to where they needed it to be. Now we learn that The Wolverine 3 is likely to start shooting at the end of April, with »

With less than two months to go before The Dark Knight takes on the Man of Steel, BoxOffice.com is forecasting a $154 million domestic box office opening for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which would be the tenth biggest North American opening of all time behind The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($158 million).

The Dark Knight Rises holds the record for the biggest domestic opening for a DC movie, debuting to $160.9 million in 2012.
