With production underway on Batman vs. Superman, we should expect to hear plenty about Warner Bros. Man of Steel sequel over the coming weeks and months (which will no doubt be music to DC fans’ ears), and to start things off director Zack Snyder has taken part in a lengthy interview with Forbes, during which he spoke in depth about the hotly-anticipated film.
On the decision to include Batman (Ben Affleck) alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman in the Man of Steel seuqel: “It definitely was a thing that… after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, ‘Maybe Batman?’ Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne’s house or something. Like in a cryptic way, »

With Warner Bros.’ kicking off production on Batman vs. Superman in Detroit, cinematographer Larry Fong has tweeted what may just be the first behind-the-scenes image from the Man of Steel sequel. No, it’s not Batman or Wonder Woman in full costume, but rather a Panavision camera pointed towards a blurry figure in a suit. Bruce Wayne, perhaps?
So, nothing too exciting, but surely it’s only a matter of time before things start to pick up…

Building from the critical and financial success of X-Men: First Class and The Wolverine solo film, 20th Century Fox has placed an enormous amount of trust and financial backing in X-Men and X2 director Bryan Singer for the time-traveling shared universe kickoff X-Men: Days of Future Past. The film will bring back both the original X-Men cast (lead by Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen) as well as the First Class team (lead by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender) while also attempting to sew-up plot holes and controversial filmmaking choices that plagued earlier installments (most notably Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand) – in order to streamline the franchise in preparation ...

Having previously refused to commit one way or another, composer Hans Zimmer has now confirmed that he’s set to take a second stab at scoring the Caped Crusader after Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, revealing to Digital Spy that Zack Snyder has invited him to compose the music for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman.
We’ve already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about [Christopher Nolan's Interstellar] I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas,” said Zimmer, who also composed the score to Man of Steel, as well as The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Zimmer then went on to admit that he’s anxious about finding a new take on the Dark Knight for Ben Affleck’s Batman, »

As is becoming customary with superhero movies, it seems UK moviegoers will get to see The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel joining forces on the big screen slightly earlier than Batman vs. Superman’s planned North American release date of May 6th 2016.
According to Launching Films (via Cbm), Warner Bros.’ Man of Steel sequel will hit UK cinemas a week earlier on April 29th. That brings it away from Marvel’s Captain America 3, although you’d have to assume based upon Marvel Studios’ past release pattern that Cap’s third solo outing will arrive a little earlier on these shores too.
Batman vs. Superman is directed by Zack Snyder and sees returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) joined by Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg »

There is not much of a description of the plot of the film, but here's what we know:Veteran killer Gon (Jang Dong-gun - My Way, The Warrior's Way and Taegukgi) receives a mission, which is to target Mo-kyeong (Kim Min-hee).

As Zack Snyder and actress Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) gear up to give a big screen debut to the Amazon Princess, former Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has shared her feelings on how she’d like to see the character portrayed in the Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman, telling The Huffington Post that…
“I’m in [Gal's] corner. I just hope they write well for her. I’m very hopeful she embodies the essence of Wonder Woman. It’s less about super powers and more about heart and intellect and a sense of right and wrong with a goodness in her. Often times, writers really want to take a male superhero and dress him up as a female – and that’s just not who she is… They make Wonder Woman a macho Superman type character – they make her mean – and that’s not who she is.”
Do you agree with Carter? »

Directed by Jonathan Teplitzky and based on the autobiography of Eric Lomax, the man behind the nickname of the title character, The Railway Man is yet another traditionally told period piece, elevated due to a wonderfully effective story and strong lead performances from Colin Firth and Jeremy Irvine. We're first introduced to Lomax (Firth) as a middle-aged British Army veteran of World War II. He's obviously a quiet man, but there are no visible physical or emotional scars, and for the time being his life is about to take a turn for the better. A chance meeting with a woman, Patti (Nicole Kidman), aboard a train results in love at first sight. The two eventually marry and find a house together, but the horrors of war can't elude him forever. It's never quite clear if Eric told Patti about his time in the British Army, but she's soon made well »

No longer content to make standalone superhero movies, studios are looking to put together superhero movie universes, thanks largely to what Marvel has done with their interconnected properties. It’s too early to tell whether or not this will be good or bad for the genre as a whole, but Sony, 2oth Century Fox, and Warner Bros. are clearly planting seeds to emulate what Marvel has done.
Warner Bros. is laying groundwork for a DC universe with Batman vs. Superman, Sony has greenlit multiple Spider-Man sequels as well as Venom and Sinister Six spin-offs, and Fox is looking to fix their X-Men universe with Days of Future Past, then one day merge the property with the soon-to-be-rebooted Fantastic Four.
What’s going on over at Fox is particularly interesting, as they were the ones who helped kickstart the superhero genre in 2000 with Bryan Singer’s X-Men. They now have six X-films under their belt, »

Anything Wolverine can do, Mystique can do better?
“I love what Jen Lawrence has done with her, and I feel like because she is in such a crowded ensemble, there’s so much more opportunity if you were to follow her solo,” “X-Men: First Class” writer-producer Simon Kinberg told Entertainment Weekly in this week’s issue.
Rebecca Romijn played the older version of the naked blue mutant in previous “X-Men” films.
“There was a regime (at the studio) that didn’t see the worth in (spinoffs), and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it and we »

20th Century Fox are reportedly said to be once again seriously considering the idea of individual X-Men spin-off movies to go along with both their upcoming two films featuring the "X-Men: First Class" cast and a follow-up to last year's "The Wolverine".
The company previously tried spin-offs, stumbling out of the gate with "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" which sunk the idea before it began. Now, producer Lauren Shuler Donner tells EW that she's keen on trying it again:
"There was a regime [at the studio] that didn't see the worth in [spin-offs], and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it, and we're going to do right by it. I'd like to do Gambit. I'd like to do Deadpool. We'll see. There's a lot of really great characters."
Writer/producer Simon Kinberg however has another character in mind - Mystique: "I love what Jen Lawrence has done with her, and I feel like because »

While Hugh Jackman's antimantium-laced mutant Logan is the only X-Men to get his own spin-off movies, in both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine, he's not the only one ever considered for a solo adventure. X-Men Origins: Magneto was in the planning stages around the same time as 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but it's script went through many drafts to ultimately become X-Men: First Class. And we've been hearing about a Deadpool movie for years. But now producer Lauren Shuler Donner claims she has her eye on Mystique, with Jennifer Lawrence to star in her own spin-off adventure.
Lauren Shuler Donner explains why we haven't seen more spin-offs for individual characters sooner.
"There was a regime [at the studio] that didn't see the worth in [spin-offs], and the current people who run Fox understand, embrace it, and we're going to do right by it. I'd like to do Gambit. I'd like to do Deadpool. »
Deadline has revealed that Ubisoft and New Regency’s forthcoming adaptation of the hit video games series Assassin’s Creed is to undergo a rewrite courtesy of Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, the screenwriters behind Ridley Scott’s biblical epic Exodus. The duo’s other upcoming credits include Darren Aronofsky’s planned George Washington biopic The General, as well as an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Devil in the Grove and Jerry Bruckheimer disaster flick Shake.
The movie adaptation of Assassin’s Creed is being developed as a vehicle for Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave, X-Men: Days of Future Past), who is attached to co-produce and star. The original draft was penned by newcomer Michael Lesslie, with Scott Frank (The Wolverine) subsequently rewriting. A director is yet to become attached, although Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) has been rumoured as a possibility.

Not too long ago, Fox announced the release dates for several future films, including the sequel to last year's The Wolverine. The sequel is slated to arrive March 3, 2017. We've received confirmation that director James Mangold will return and that David James Kelly has been chosen to write the film, but we still haven't received any definitive confirmation about the return of series star, Hugh Jackman. Well we might have an answer to that question now as Yahoo Movies conducted a joint-interview with Jackman and his X-Men: Days of Future Past co-stars, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, where they answered fan questions from Twitter. Check out the video below where Jackman answers a fan question regarding his status for the future: "Um, I am not signed on, but if I was a betting man, there's a good chance. Yes." "There's a good chance you're coming back?" "There's a good chance." The Wolverine »
Earlier this week, Marvel Studios officially announced the release of Captain America 3, confirming that the currently-untitled superhero sequel will hit cinemas on May 6th, 2016 – the exact same date as another currently-untitled superhero sequel in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel follow-up Batman vs. Superman.
Well, it seems that Marvel isn’t the only one refusing to budge, with Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman telling Bloomberg that: “It doesn’t make a lot of sense for two huge superhero films to open on the same date but there is a lot of time between now and May 6th 2016. However, at this time, we are not considering a change of date for Batman vs. Superman.”

Last week, Warner Bros. dropped another surprise casting announcement for Batman Vs. Superman, revealing that Oscar winner Holly Hunter (The Piano), Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an Empire) and Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) joined the cast. The official press release stated that all three actors are playing characters "newly created for the film," but a report from Latino Review reveals that Holly Hunter may be playing, "Leslie Thompkins, or a Leslie Thompkins replacement character."
In the DC Comics, Leslie Thompkins is a doctor who went to medical school with Bruce Wayne's (Ben Affleck) father before his murder, and she also knew Bruce's Batman secret very early on. Some versions of Batman's origin story have Thompkins comforting a young Bruce right after his parents were killed.
The character also appeared in the Batman animated series, where she also knew about Bruce's alter-ego and would provide medical care for injuries he couldn't go to a hospital for. »
