Well, the past seven days may just have been the busiest week of the year in terms of superhero news, with several huge stories dropping throughout the week, and the biggest surprise of all?

We've got a lot to get through this week, but we'll start things off with our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man...
So, things have been »

The Flickering Myth writing team give their views on the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2....
What a couple of days it's been for comic book movie fans. Aside from the news that Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman (read our reaction here), we also had Bryan Singer announce X-Men: Apocalypse for 2016 and we've also been given the first official trailer for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The Week in Spandex is going to be a busy one this week!
With all this excitement, what did the Flickering Myth writing team think of the trailer..?
Oliver Davis: I like to think I'm a rational human being. One who's seen enough superhero movie trailers to know that you can't judge these films on the promotional material alone. Some have a boring build, but I end up enjoying them (Captain America: The First Avenger »
We’re quickly approaching the end of 2013, and fanboys and moviegoers everywhere already have their sights set to 2014. Or, more accurately, summer 2014, which will once again be filled with superheroes and tentpole properties (get used to it people, they’re not going away!). And though we’ve already had trailers released for Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, fans have still been waiting to see the first glimpse of Sony’s next Spidey film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
After enduring the annoying run of super short teaser trailers, we were finally given our first look at the film on Thursday in a gloriously awesome two and a half minute trailer:
The trailer is marketed as a “teaser,” though it’s packed with plenty of big reveals and tantalising plot points. WhatCulture writer Scott Tailford has already written a great breakdown of those details, »

While we've already had trailers for two of next year's superhero offerings in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony has been making us wait for our first look at the upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, after counting down with some snippets of footage this week, the studio has finally dropped the first trailer for Spidey's latest adventure and you can check it out right here after the official synopsis...
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen »

Once again we have a Marvel superhero movie kicking off the 2014 summer movie season (though with films like Captain America: The Winter Soldier arriving before it in April, it's pretty easy these days to question when, exactly, that season actually begins). Due out on May 2, 2014, the first full trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has just arrived online, and you can check it out below. What this trailer definitely does is get you excited for what appears to be a very cool Spider-Man movie, but this first look also teases a lot more. Not only do we see Electro (Jamie Foxx), the film's primary villain, and a brief glimpse of Rhino (Paul Giamatti) in some kind of giant mech suit, but they also tease Harry Osborn's transformation into some form of Goblin...

Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have confirmed the casting line-up for Duncan Jones' upcoming movie take on the Warcraft videogame. And as it turns out, some of the rumours that were doing the rounds had just a little substance to them.
The film is now set to star Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel (from the Vikings TV show), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Rob Kazinskey (Pacific Rim) and Toby Kebbell (The Counsellor). Furthermore, discussions are nearly done with Dominic Cooper - soon to be seen again in Captain America: The Winter Soldier - as well.
The film has recently been pushed back to a March 11th 2016 release date - you can blame Star Wars: Episode VII for that - but Jones (who has »
It’s not easy making a great movie, but it’s even harder making a great trailer. Like all advertising, movie trailers have evolved in the last few decades to become a genuine pop culture event. An effective trailer can do wonders for a film, especially for a film that doesn’t come with a built-in audience. There’s no faster way to create buzz than with a good trailer, and a well made trailer can turn a movie from a first-time director starring a bunch of then-unknowns into the most-buzzed about movie for weeks. Meanwhile a poor trailer can doom a movie right from the start. Every year there are but a few trailers that, independent of the film they’re promoting, capture everyone’s full attention. Here are the trailers of 2013 that were able to do that best.
Please note: This is Ricky’s list. Deepayan’s list will follow next week. »
Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures have officially cast its main actors in Duncan Jones' upcoming feature film adaptation of Warcraft. Some of the names we've heard before, others are a complete surprise!
So far we've got Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (RocknRolla), and Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim). Then there is Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), who is in the final stages of negotiations. This is a pretty awesome cast so far, and I expect we'll see even more.
The script for the film was written by Charles Leavitt and then rewritten by Jones. Production is set to begin as planned in Vancouver this January. It's set to be released on March 11th, 2016!
Jones is going to do some amazing things with this film! For more information on what the story could be, click here. »

Universal Pictures and Legendary have revealed the cast for Duncan Jones’ Warcraft today and we must say, it’s not all that impressive. Deals have been made with Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, and Rob Kazinsky, with Dominic Cooper in final stages of negotiations as well.
It’s a cast that’s made up of mostly B-list actors and while it may not be the all-star line-up that most blockbusters boast, there are a few bright spots here.
Ben Foster is one of Hollywood’s most under-appreciated talents and recently did some excellent work in Kill Your Darlings. I’m also a big fan of Dominic Cooper. He showed what he’s capable of in The Devil’s Double and with projects like Need For Speed and Captain America: The Winter Soldier in production, his star will only continue to rise.
As for the rest of the cast, »

Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures just announced that they've closed deals with Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (The Counselor), and Rob Kazinsky (Pacific Rim) for writer-director Duncan Jones' Warcraft. Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) is also in final negotiations to star. Production is scheduled to begin in Vancouver this coming January. Warcraft will open March 11, 2016. Hit the jump for more. Unfortunately, no casting details are available at the moment, and the order of the casting announcement is not indicative of the final film's billing. News out of BlizzCon 2013 did tell us that the Warcraft film adaptation would tell “the story of Anduin Lothar versus Durotan, Human and Orc heroes from the original real-time strategy games.” Your guess is as good as mine as for who will be taking on which role when the film kicks into gear. »

This is a breaking news bulletin. We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you the following news. What seems too good to be true is finally happening, ladies and gentlemen. The Flash has been confirmed to appear alongside Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman film, the sequel to this years reboot of the Superman franchise Man Of Steel. To reiterate however, we do not know to what capacity we will see both characters in the film, which is to say they may introduce them as these superpowered individuals, or have brief cameos readying for future instalments.
In the short span since the announcement, many have wondered just who will be playing The Flash and if Glee actor Grant Gustin will be expanding his role from The Flash in the popularised Arrow (featuring Green Arrow, another DC/Justice League member) onto the silver screen. »

Warner Bros. is making moves on Batman vs. Superman. The studio just announced that Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot will be playing Wonder Woman opposite Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman in the film, and now it appears they have their sights set on casting the pic’s villain. Though the working title would lead us to believe that Batman and Superman’s relationship will at one point be contentious, the film will also have a proper villain. Now that Wonder Woman is set, director Zack Snyder can focus on casting that role, and one of the contenders is reportedly Callan Mulvey. Hit the jump for more, including which Justice League members will be making cameos in the film. Embedded in their story about the Wonder Woman casting, Variety reports that Callan Mulvey is “someone Warner Bros. is eyeing” to play the antagonist in Batman vs. Superman. »

The film's director Zack Snyder has confirmed that the role is indeed that of Wonder Woman and tells Deadline:
"Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character."

Hot on the heels of Warner Bros. announcing who'll play the Amazon Princess in Justice League Batman Vs. Superman, word is out on who they're considering for the villain role in the Zack Snyder-directed Man of Steel sequel. We still don't know which DC character will provoke the assemblage of Batman, Superman, Nightwing and Wonder Woman (along with supposed cameo appearances by “several other members of the Justice League”), but Variety is reporting that the studio is considering Callan Mulvey, 38, for the part. The Australian actor, who appeared in Zero Dark Thirty last year, will be seen in next year's 300: Rise of an Empire and he also has a villain role (Jack Rollins) in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. As the source suggests Warner Bros. is just “eyeing” Callan Mulvey, there could be other actors in contention. Anyhow, previous rumors suggest that Lex Luther and Doomsday will »

This week, James considers the impact of film sequels, and comes up with a few he'd like to see himself. Robot & Frank Rises, anyone?
"So, when do we start shooting the next one?" - Every major movie studio executive on the Monday following a bumper opening weekend at the box office.
Did you enjoy that? Good, because they're going to make a sequel. This is standard operating procedure and the modus operandi in Hollywood film production. If something is successful you do it again. And then you do it again. And then you do it again and again until it's not successful or until a »
