Back in July during the San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. gave fans in attendance in Hall H a sneak peek at 2016’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman by showcasing footage from the film, along with promotional images of Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess and Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight. We’ve seen high-resolution, official versions of the character images for Superman and Wonder Woman, but so far Batman has been kept under wraps. Well, thanks to BatmanvSuperman2016 on Instagram (via Cbm), we now have a low-quality look at The Dark Knight in what appears to be a blue and grey Batsuit. Take a look…
To be totally honest, apart from the colouring it’s not much better than the snap that made its way online during Sdcc, so let’s hope we get an official release soon…

Back in August a report from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teased the possibility of anti-Superman protests in the film, and it looks like an eagle-eyed fan has just confirmed it. Twitter user Tim Reinmann spotted protestors on the set of Batman V Superman, holding up signs like “Thanks For The ‘Help’,” “SuperDEATH,” and “When Invasion Becomes Reality Revolt Becomes Duty!”
It looks like Superman’s big battle with Zod at the end of Man of Steel will bring more consequences than just property damage, and the anti-Superman sensibilities sure will help Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) in his fight against his soon-to-be arch-nemesis.
Check out the photos below, and let us know your thoughts about the film containing anti-Superman protests in the comments…

X-Men: Days of Future Past did a lot to spin Fox's X-franchise on its head. While being a sequel to X-Men: First Class, and sharing a cast with all of the previous films, it essentially rebooted the series. In a rather ingenious way, Simon Kinberg, Bryan Singer, and their writing staff were able to give the series a fresh new start without having to press a Batman Begins-style "Reset Button." It's not the first time this has happened, as 2009's Star Trek also proved that you can use certain, accepted science fiction conventions to start things over without having to say that everything that came before it is now meaningless.
Kinberg sat down with Yahoo to discuss some of the ripples that will be felt all throughout the X-universe after the events of Days of Future Past. What stays? What goes? What can we expect? With X-Men: Apocalypse looming, »

Though X-Men: Days of Future Past was absolutely massive, bringing together the older cast of the earlier trilogy with the new actors of prequel First Class, word has it that X-Men: Apocalypse will go even bigger. And though production on the franchise entry isn’t getting underway until next spring, Days of Future Past scribe Simon Kinberg was recently more than happy to shed some light on what Apocalypse will look like and how it is being approached in relation to the previous films.
Speaking with Yahoo! Movies UK, Kinberg, who is currently developing the script for Apocalypse with returning director Bryan Singer and X2 screenwriters Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty, discussed the scope and focus of the upcoming blockbuster:
“The thrust of Apocalypse is really to complete the trilogy we began with First Class – to complete the stories of young Raven, young Hank, younger Charles and Erik. And complete »

With Ben Affleck currently on the promotional rounds for David Fincher’s Gone Girl, we can expect the actor to be inundated with questions about his upcoming role as The Dark Knight in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the Boston Globe has already managed to grab a few of his thoughts about the big DC ensemble…
“I can tell you that I’m very excited and it’s very exciting. I can tell you that in my entire career, I haven’t had so many people come up to me and say how much they’re looking forward to the movie. Naturally, that’s a lot of pressure, but I love the script, I love the director, I love the studio. I’m very much looking forward to it, but it’s two years away so it probably doesn’t bear talking about anymore.”
So, based on those comments, »

As filming continues on Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it looks like we may have had our first look at Wayne Manor as it will appear in the DC Cinematic Universe… and if it is, then it’s very different to previous Wayne Manors we’ve seen on screen. Batman-News has posted a selection of images showing the crew setting up at the abandoned Ransom Gillis House in Detroit, while a set video has arrived online showing Gotham City Police arriving at the mansion. Check them out…
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016 with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, »

The Wolverine released on home video in December 2013 with several different disc-based options, including the comprehensive “Unleashed Edition” which featured director James Mangold’s unrated and slightly extended cut of the film. For the next X-Men home video release by Twentieth Century Fox, fans are going to have to wait months for the director’s cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past by Bryan Singer, which will come only in a second, separate release.
Writer and producer Simon Kinberg appeared on the Fox studio lot earlier today to promote next month’s home video DVD and Blu-ray releases of X-Men: Days of Future Past (it’s currently available digitally) and made a surprise announcement that the film will be re-released ...

Universal Studios tried to revive their classic monsters with 2004's Van Helsing, which starred Hugh Jackman ("The Wolverine") and Kate Beckinsale ("Underworld"). It featured a bunch of monsters: vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein's monster. But there was another monster that was supposed to appear in the film - the Creature from the Black Lagoon (also known as Gill-man) . Sadly, the scene didn't make it into the film, but you can view the storyboards below that storyboard artist Doug Brode ("Looper") worked on. For those of you not familiar, Gill-man was featured in the 1954 film the Creature from the Black Lagoon and its two sequels, Revenge of the Creature (1955) and The Creature Walks Among Us (1956). Universal has made several attempts to reboot the franchise but they've been unsuccessful so far. Though, hope was renewed in July of this year when Universal hired Alex Kurtzman ("Star Trek Into Darkness") and Chris »
Ah, you've been busy. When we opened our special folder to see what new letters have come in, it turned out you'd sent us loads, and that the questions aren't getting any easier. As such, this is our longest letters page yet. Keep the correspondence coming - contact details are down at the bottom - and we'll crack on with the latest letters here...
Four Questions, Not All Of Them Easy
Having read your first few letters pages, it appears that a good way to start is to spend a paragraph or so gushing about [nice things redacted] which then gets deleted out, and then to start mid-sentence. So, here goes:

Back in July 2013, Man of Steel star Harry Lennix took to the stage at the San Diego Comic-Con International where he quoted lines from Frank Miller’s seminal comic book Batman: The Dark Knight Returns as part of the official announcement that Zack Snyder would be bringing the Man of Steel and The Dark Knight together for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now, during an interview with Moviefone, Lennix has offered up a few words on the DC Comics ensemble, stating that fans of The Dark Knight Returns will be “well pleased” by the “historic event”.
“Anybody who’s a fan of the ’86 graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, I think will be well pleased by [Batman v Superman],” says Lennix, who will reprise the role of General Swanwick in the team-up. “This is a historic event. Clearly, Zack Snyder is on the cutting edge of directing movies of this scope and scale. »

Sullivan Stapleton and Philip Winchester will be back as Strike Back leads Damien Scott and Michael Stonebridge, with Robson Green (Philip Locke), Michelle Lukes (Sgt Richmond) and Milauna Jackson (Kim Martinez) also returning.
Mad Dogs star Beesley takes on the role of an ex-pat gangster in the new episodes, which will also feature guest appearances from Game of Thrones actor Michael McElhatton, Highlander: The Series star Adrian Paul and Spartacus actor Dustin Clare.
X-men: Days Of Future Past was the smash hit superhero blockbuster 20th Century Fox had been aiming to produce for years. The film was a reunion for the cast and crew of the original series which brought back Bryan Singer as its director and Hugh Jackman as its star. This proved to be a fantastic decision on Fox’s part, which elevated the franchise to new heights. As a result, X-men: Days Of Future Past received mass critical acclaim and became 2014’s highest grossing Comic Book movie with almost $750 Million worldwide.
Singer’s time travelling epic re-wrote a large chunk of the X-men continuity, which means that the next instalment in the series has a relatively blank canvas to work from. We have known for quite some time that X-men: Apocalypse is due to hit theatres in May 2016, however now things are beginning to fall into place for the film. »

This final set of ten episodes is scheduled to air sometime in 2015

Strike Back is back in production with a 2015 premiere date. Cinemax has just announced a few casting additions that should bolster the adrenaline rush for the series’ fourth and final season. Production is adding a rich line-up of action heroes from comic-adapted films, action series, martial arts flicks and – of course – Game of Thrones.
We’ve got Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II), Will Yun Lee (The Wolverine, True Blood) and Adrian Paul (Highlander TV series) representing for the martial arts fans. Dustin Clare, aka Gannicus from Sprtacus, also joins the roster, alongside Christian Antidormi (Spartacus: War of the Damned) and Joseph Gatt (Game of Thrones). If that wasn’t enough action for you, Strike Back takes a note from The Expendables and has added a real Mma fighter to the mix. Get ready to see British champ and Ufc fighter Michael Bisping join the foray.
Needless to say, »

The final season of "Strike Back" has the potential for even more bad-assery than usual, based on the just-announced guest cast. The action drama, co-produced by Cinemax and the UK's Sky 1, resumed production on its fourth and final season, following a brief hiatus caused by star Sullivan Stapleton getting injured away from the set. For the final year, Stapleton, Philip Winchester and the rest of the returning crew (including Robson Green, Michelle Lukes and Milauna Jackson as members of British special forces unit Section 20) will be joined by a set of actors with impressive action bonafides: * Michelle Yeoh, one of the greatest action stars ever produced by international cinema, and star of one of the best action movies ever made ("Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"); * Dustin Clare from Starz's very violent "Spartacus" franchise (plus fellow "Spartacus" alum Christian Antidormi); * Adrian Paul, who brandished a sword many times as star of the »

The X-Men franchise is longest running of all the current comic book movie franchises. It debuted in 200o with X-Men and went though 2009 with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Fox then apparently looked at rebooting the franchise with X-Men: First Class but the events of that film remained canon. The sequel to First Class was X-Men: Days of Future Past which brought both the young cast and older cast together, firmly cementing both sets of characters as existing in the same universe.
The next film to be released will be X-Men: Apocalypse, which will follow the younger cast as they take on the villain Apocalypse in 1983. X-Men: Apocalypse seems to be bridging the gap between the original trilogy and the latest films. This would be a nice way to round of the series before a reboot. By the time »

Liam Neeson taking on kidnappers, that's nothing new, right? This weekend's release, A Walk Among the Tombstones, is true to form. Neeson plays Matt Scudder, a detective who retired from the NYPD after being involved in a violent gunfight while under the influence. A plea for assistance from a fellow AA member involves him in a rather grisly kidnapping plot and also offers him a chance at redemption.
Writer/director Scott Frank (The Wolverine, Minority Report, Get Shorty), is responsible for some of Hollywood's biggest hits. This may not be one of them, as it attempts to re-create the formula of Neeson's Taken series. It is, however, a solid thriller that still manages a few surprises.

Writer Scott Frank, whose eclectic resume includes Marley & Me and The Wolverine, has revealed that he despised the ending to the superhero blockbuster, before blaming 20th Century Fox for the way it concluded. While promoting his upcoming film, A Walk Among The Tombstones, with Screen Crush, Frank opened up about scribing the solo outing for Logan, revealing that he had never ever planned to write a superhero movie. After it was pointed out just how diverse his repertoire of films is, Frank declared: "That.s a weird credit, isn.t it? And Wolverine, too! I mean, I railed against superhero movies all the time and low and behold, I write one." Despite these protestations, it would appear as though Frank actually enjoyed his time working with director James Mangold on the epic... until the end. As it turns out, he isn.t a big fan of the way James Mangold »
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? »
