If you weren’t present at Hall H on Saturday morning to witness the first footage from Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. The quick teaser premiered to screams and rapturous applause at the San Diego Comic-Con, and has thankfully leaked online for your viewing pleasure. It’s obviously not the best quality, and will likely get taken down before too long, but if you’re dying to see this footage and couldn’t make it to Comic-Con this year, now’s your chance! Check it out in all its blurry glory below while you still can…

Earlier today director Zack Snyder kicked off Warner Bros.’ Hall H presentation at the San Diego Comic-Con by dropping our first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as screening some footage from the eagerly-anticipated film. You can see the Amazon Princess and read a description of said footage here, and take a look at an image of the three posters for Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman here, but now we have what is said to be a leaked image from the footage, which shows Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight in his armored Batsuit, complete with white eyes…
Update – And here’s a couple more, along with a Man of Steel who looks like he means business…

Just over an hour ago Zack Snyder got Saturday’s San Diego Comic Con off to a hugely exciting start in Hall H by debuting footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as giving us our first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman [see here]. And now, doing the rounds on Twitter is a shot of the three posters for the Trinity…
Now, we really need a hi-res, colour version of the Batman shot…

Warner Bros. has just kicked off its Hall H panel at the San Diego Comic-Con with a huge surprise as Zack Snyder took to the stage to introduce footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; meanwhile, he also introduced the Trinity of Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, as well as giving us our first look at Gadot in full costume as the Amazon Princess. And here she is…
Here’s a description of the footage via Coming Soon…
We’re seeing 3D renders of Batman and Superman! Not actual footage, but painted concept art rendering in 3D. Very Frank Miller looking. It was pretty quick, ending with the Dawn of Justice logo. Zack Snyder has taken the stage! He says he couldn’t be happier with the way production is going at the moment. Batman is standing on a Gotham rooftop in the rain. His costume isn »

After teasing the suit late last week and revealing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman (see here), we now have the first full shot of Ben Affleck’s Batsuit for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice… okay, well not quite, as a photoshopped image has been doing the rounds on Twitter via the Shh forums, but it does give us an idea of what to expect when we do finally get a full colour image of Affleck in the suit. Minus the chin, of course…

We got a good look at Batman’s cape and cowl from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on display at the San Diego Comic-Con International today [see here], and now to coincide with the Batman 75th anniversary panel at Comic-Con, DC Entertainment has given us a brand new image of Ben Affleck wearing it!

Over at SuperHeroHype they’ve had the opportunity to get some snaps of a very cool stand on display at the San Diego Comic-Con. The cape and cowl of the new Batsuit from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! Here it is…
It all looks pretty standard to be honest, with the biggest difference to previous suits being the shorter ears. It is very intriguing that they’ve gone back to a one piece design, as opposed to the overtly flexible neck and head pieces of the last Batsuit seen in the The Dark Knight Trilogy. It doesn’t appear to have much give, but maybe technology has come on since and we’ll have a Batman that has both the iconic silhouette and the ability to back out of the drive a little easier.

A few months ago, a few special edition Blu-ray/DVD sets for X-Men: Days of Future Past were revealed and you can check them all out by clicking Here. The critically acclaimed film will be available on Digital HD, September 23 and will be available on Blu-ray/DVD, October 14. Earlier this year, X-Men: Days of Future Past producer Lauren Shuler Donner said that we should expect an Extended Director's Cut on the Blu-ray when it is released later this year. Earlier today, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment revealed a list of special features that will be included on the Blu-ray/DVD sets and there is no mention of an Extended or Director's Cut. This doesn't necessarily mean that there won't be an Extended Director's Cut, but as of right now it has yet to be announced. James Mangold's The Wolverine received a special Unleashed Extended Cut, so it is still »
With filming on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice heading to Corktown, Detroit in a couple of weeks, the website TheBananaDoc has posted a few images from the set, showing construction of a devastated section of Gotham or Metropolis. There’s nothing too exciting, but hopefully we’ll get to see the cast out in the open once filming on the set gets underway…

A magnificent science fiction drama, and a beautiful one. Wonderfully radical for the simple fact that it is ruled by principled ideas. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
We need a bigger word than humanist.
That was a word I used to describe the lovely, honest, sensitive Rise of the Planet of the Apes — and god, did it feel good to be able to connect those words with a big-budget science fiction movie. But now it feels too small to encompass where Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes the ongoing story. People-ist is the first coinage that leaps to mind, clunky as it is. Because there are nonhumans here who are as fully people as the humans are… in fact, the story is very much about the humans coming to »

Experimental filmmaker Nina Menkes is developing a new film examining the Israel-Palestinian conflict through the Greek legend of Theseus and the Minotaur.
Nina Menkes is developing a new film examining the Israel-Palestinian conflict through a loose re-telling of the Greek legend of Theseus and the Minotaur set against the backdrop of the Old City of Jerusalem in contemporary times.
Entitled simply Minotaur, the film revolves around a Christian Palestinian working with tourists in the Old City, who embodies both Theseus and the Minotaur, which manifests itself as a Hebrew-speaking beast that attacks visitors in the crypt of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. He has a mother called Pasiphae and falls for the beautiful foreign waitress Ariadne.
“First and foremost it’s an emotional story about the process of confronting the self and not living in denial which I think is a big issue around here… but it’s also a political story about here the country »
If he agrees to the contract Bale will feature as lead character Travis McGee, a ‘salvage consultant’ who returns property to its rightful owner – at a price. However, while his job may sound rather dull, McGee gets himself into all sorts of trouble, described at times as a ‘mercenary’.
This definitely sounds promising, especially with Bale and DiCaprio working together. The Deep Blue Goodbye was the first of MacDonald’s 21 stories in the series (yes, 21!) so maybe this will morph into an epic franchise…or have we had enough of those already?

A few months back, I reported that James Mangold (The Wolverine) was set to direct an adaptation of John D. MacDonald's "The Deep Blue Goodbye." At the time, I noted that based on the description of the book's title character Travis McGee, it sounded like a good gig for Matthew McConaughey.
Here's my description of the character, who would become the protagonist for several more adaptations if Hollywood can successfully launch him with Deep Blue Goodbye:
"The character is described as something of a beach bum in Florida that lives on his houseboat, The Busted Flush, and doesn't do much of anything until he needs money. When he needs to make some cash, he does for-hire jobs helping people get back their missing property as a "salvage consultant," helps and seduces women along the way, and gets himself into various misadventures while on assignments."
Sounds like it would require someone who has the charming, »

Will "Travis McGee" finally get made? The project has been bouncing around Hollywood for years, at one time was positioned as a vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio (who is still producing), while directors like Paul Greengrass and Oliver Stone circled at various times. Now James Mangold ("The Wolverine," "Walk The Line") is attached to direct and an old friend may star. Christian Bale is in early talks for the movie which is franchise material, based on the books by John D. MacDonald and centers on a beach bum “salvage consultant,” who specializes in recovering client's otherwise forever lost property in return for half the property's value as a fee — his first case (based on the novel "The Deep Blue Good-By") finds him reluctantly in search of a treasure hidden by a soldier after World War II. Will Bale be the one to get this moving? We'll see. [THR] Speaking of long developing projects, »

Last week Warner Bros. announced its line-up for the San Diego Comic-Con International, with the eagerly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice absent from a schedule that includes the likes of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, Jupiter Ascending, Into the Storm and Godzilla. Of course, there’s every chance that WB could be keeping its big superhero offering as a surprise, but now stills photographer Clay Enos has indicated that we might have to wait until 2015 before we get to see something from the DC ensemble.
A few days back, Enos teased a “historic” photoshoot on Twitter, with speculation suggesting that WB could be preparing a promotional photo of the Trinity – Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) – to debut at Sdcc. However, Enos has now stated that we should expect WB to hold things back until next year’s Comic-Con:

The literary works of American author John D. MacDonald could be said to have a very specific tone. With published titles including The Executioners – from which the film Cape Fear was adapted – his stories conjure suspenseful, sinister atmospheres in hardboiled narratives. There are, then, few people better suited to adapt his work for film than Dennis Lehane – himself the noted author of original novels Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island. The story he has adapted is A Deep Blue Good-by featuring the character of Travis McGee, and it is a project with franchise potential – particularly since it seems to have caught the eye of Christian Bale.
Travis McGee is a hard-nosed salvage consultant, who makes his living recovering stolen property – keeping half the value as his fee, with a view to funding an early retirement. In A Deep Blue Good-by, McGee finds himself on the trail of the powerful and evil Junior Allen, »

It looks like Christian Bale has set his sights on a potential action/crime franchise, as Variety reports that the Academy Award winner is in talks to play Travis McGee in an adaptation of the 1964 John D. MacDonald novel, The Deep Blue Good-By.
MacDonald wrote 21 novels starring the McGee character over a twenty year period, from 1964 to 1984. Two film adaptations have been made; first came 1970′s Darker Than Amber starring Rod Taylor, then the 1983 made-for-tv-movie Travis McGee (based on the novel The Empty Copper Sea) starring Sam Elliot.
Unlike other detectives in crime fiction, Travis McGee is neither a police officer or licensed private detective. Instead, he considers himself a “salvage consultant,” who recovers others’ lost property for a fee (managing to get himself into trouble along the way, with plenty of bad guy fighting and woman wooing).
The Deep Blue Good-By is set to be directed by Walk the Line »

Circling through various stages of development for some time, it looks like John D. MacDonald’s best-selling series is finally about to make it to the big screen, with Christian Bale eyeing the lead in The Deep Blue Goodbye.
The 1964 novel is the first of twenty-one in the Travis McGee series, and has previously had the likes of Oliver Stone and Paul Greengrass in the director’s chair, as well as Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead.
DiCaprio is still on board as a producer, but talks have commenced with Christian Bale to star as the hero, Travis McGee. And though there’s no offer yet, Bale is reported to have agreed to star, and an offer is expected shortly.
James Mangold, coming off the back of helming The Wolverine, has just closed his deal to direct, and DiCaprio will be producing alongside Jennifer Davisson Killoran (The Ides of March, Out of the Furnace »
