20 Weirdest Things About Lex Luthor's Body

Whether you prefer Jesse Eisenberg, Kevin Spacey, Michael Rosenbaum, or Gene Hackman; Injustice or Lego Batman; chances are we can all agree on the singular genius of Superman’s archnemesis, Lex Luthor.

He founded the Leagion of Doom, he’s outmatched just about every member of the Justice League, he is a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist to rival Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark, and he's even spent three years as leader of a country, during which time he successfully led the country against an alien invasion.

Like all DC Comics characters (and indeed most comic book characters across the board), Luthor hides some pretty weird physical and mental traits. Since his first comic book appearance in Action Comics #23 in 1940, he’s undergone some dramatic transformations, survived cataclysmic, universe-altering events, and (like most comic characters) has even lost his life several times.

Over the years, Luthor has employed just about every

Warner Bros. has big plans for Black Manta in the DC Extended Universe

Although he’ll be playing second fiddle to Patrick Wilson’s Ocean Master in this December’s Aquaman, it seems that Warner Bros. and DC Films have big plans in store for Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s Black Manta in the future.

“We certainly have every intention that Manta plays a very large role in the DC universe,” producer Peter Safran tells CinemaBlend. “He has to. He’s just too great. And we give him his origin story in this movie. We do show how Manta, that we see in the comic books, became that character. And we’re so fortunate to have this guy, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, to play him. I don’t know if you guys saw The Get Down on Netflix, this guy Yahya is just extraordinary, and he came in and he auditioned and we met with him and it was just a slam dunk.”

Zack Snyder states that Dick Grayson is Batman v Superman’s dead Robin, planned to introduce Carrie Kelley

Earlier this year, Zack Snyder implied that the Robin suit on display in the Batcave in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may not have belonged to Jason Todd, and now the filmmaker has confirmed on his Vero account that he intended it to belong to “Richard” – a.k.a. Dick Grayson.

As we saw in the rap-sheets in Suicide Squad, The Joker was responsible for murdering the Dceu’s Robin (just as he was in DC comic book continuity), but Snyder’s plan was to have the Robin persona retired following Dick Grayson’s death, until the eventual introduction of The Dark Knight Returns’ Carrie Kelley as Batman’s new sidekick…

‘The Death of Superman’ Review – What ‘Batman v. Superman’ and ‘Justice League’ Should Have Been

Warner Bros. Animation has brought one of the most iconic moments in comic book history to the animated DC Universe. Death of Superman retells the story from issue #75 of Superman (1992) when Superman met his demise to the hands of Doomsday. DC has told this story once before in another animated film with Superman/Doomsday (2007) in which it was loosely based on the original story. It forever changed the comic book world – could the animated Death of Superman do to animated films what the original story did to comics?

An Astroid hits Earth along with it is the monstrous unstoppable force known as Doomsday. With Metropolis under attack the Justice League rally together to stop the monster. But when the dust settles, only a last stand from Superman stands in Doomsday’s way.

The first thing that I assume fans would want to know is if it’s accurate to the comic book.

Superman’s return reportedly happened much earlier in Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut

With Warner Bros. officially dismissing the prospect of a Zack Snyder cut of Justice League, it seems unlikely that well ever get to learn exactly what the filmmaker had in store for the DC blockbuster prior to his departure from the movie.

We do know that Snyder’s version differed considerably from the theatrical cut completed by Joss Whedon, and now we have a little nugget of information regarding one rather drastic change, with actor Marc McClure revealing that Superman’s resurrection originally occurred much earlier in the film.

“There’s a big fight sequence in the park, where Superman’s statue was,” states McClure (via Comic Book). “And it was more at the beginning of the film. So it all got kinda changed around. I’m not quite sure why it was, whether it just didn’t work with the story, I think it was such a hard sequence

20 Crazy Details Behind The Making Of Zombieland

TV and movie fans can’t seem to get enough of the mysterious mythos surrounding the horrific idea of zombies. Gaining in popularity since George Romero’s 1968 cult film Night of the Living Dead, stories of the deceased coming back to life have flooded TV and movie screens worldwide. Eventually gaining the term “zombie”, the appearance of these creatures signals the beginning of the now popular term “zombie apocalypse”.

Although various films have depicted the aftermath of such an occurrence, the world found in Zombieland certainly stands out from the others. Filled with hilarious jokes, zombie slayings, and unforgettable characters, the movie managed to carve out its own unique place within zombie fandoms.

One of the biggest takeaways from the film became the inclusion of a list of survival rules in case a zombie apocalypse occurs. These rules, varying from the sensible to the ridiculous, helped to build the movie's

Rumour: Warner Bros. has dropped its Injustice League / Legion of Doom plans for the Dceu

Last year’s Justice League seemed to indicate that DC Films’ was sewing the seeds to bring together the DC universe’s biggest villains for an Injustice League / Legion of Doom-style group with a post credits scene featuring a meeting between Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor and Joe Manganiello’s Slade Wilson.

Rumours have suggested that this team-up could build over a number of movies, with the likes of Aquaman featuring another post-credit stinger, and the storyline serving as the “connective tissue” of the next slate of Dceu films before culminating with an epic superhero vs. supervillain showdown.

Well, according to a new rumour from Revenge of the Fans, these Legion of Doom plans have been put on the back burner following the arrival of new DC Films chief Walter Hamada. Apparently Hamada’s immediate priority is to establish the next wave of DC films as standalone stories, and does

WB Said To Be Shelving Their Plans For The Legion Of Doom

Remember that post-credits scene from Justice League? Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor escapes from prison and is hanging out in princely villainy on board a luxury yacht apparently crewed by sexy ladies. He invites Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke to chat and asks him a question: “Shouldn’t we have a league of our own?”

Seasoned comic book fans will know he’s not talking about the 1992 classic sports comedy, but rather, the tyrannical Legion of Doom! Yup, DC’s future plans are definitely to have their most powerful villains team-up and take down the Justice League. Except now, they’re not.

Revenge of the Fans has revealed that all plans for the Legion appearing on screen have been abruptly terminated as the Dceu becomes Worlds of DC and the concept switches gears from an McU-style shared universe towards more standalone stories.

Warner Bros. executive confirms no plans to release Snyder Cut of Justice League

Despite several conflicting reports and mixed messages as to whether it actually exists, a number of Zack Snyder fans still haven’t given up hope that Warner Bros. will give us a look at “what might have been” by releasing the ‘Snyder Cut’ of last year’s DC superhero team-up Justice League.

It’s been heavily rumoured (or rather speculated) these past few weeks that an announcement about the Snyder Cut could come at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend during Saturday’s DC Films panel. However, if that’s something on your wishlist for this year’s Comic-Con, then I’m afraid we have some bad news for you.

In a piece over at The Wall Street Journal about Snyder’s Justice League, an unnamed “senior executive” at Warner Bros. has revealed that there will be no mention of a Snyder Cut at Comic-Con, and that the studio has no

Henry Cavill would “rather focus on the future” rather than a Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League, talks Man of Steel 2 villain hopes

Given the amount of CGI upper lip we saw in Justice League, it seems pretty clear that the vast majority of Henry Cavill’s Superman scenes in the final cut of the DC superhero ensemble came by way of Joss Whedon’s reshoots.

While much of the material that Cavill shot for Zack Snyder ended up on the cutting room floor, the actor has revealed to Yahoo! Movies that he doesn’t really see any point in calls for the ‘Snyder Cut’, and would prefer instead to focus on what the future might bring for the Man of Steel.

“I don’t know if [the Snyder cut] actually exists so the only way I can look at it is as a business model, and I don’t know what difference it’s going to make,” said Cavill. “There are stories to be told, which need to be told and adjustments that can be made,

‘Zombieland 2’, ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ & More Get New Release Dates

Sony has shaken up their release calendar in the next few years, with new release dates being set for ‘Zombieland 2‘, ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood‘ and more. Perhaps the most notable change here is ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood‘, which has moved two July 26, 2019, accoding to The Wrap. Quentin Tarantino‘s latest film had an original release date of August 9, 2019, marking the 50th anniversary of the Murder of Sharon Tate to the day. Since the movie reportedly uses these events as the backdrop for the movie, moving the release date up by two weeks is a smart but risky change.

While ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ currently faces no direct competition on the weekend of July 26th, but jam-packed release schedule for the month includes the like of ‘Top Gun: Maverick‘, ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home‘, and the live action/motion capture remake of ‘The Lion King‘, to name a few.

Zombieland 2 Release Date Announced, First Plot Synopsis Revealed

Unfortunately, Sony hasn’t already shot Zombieland 2, despite a report to the contrary last month. However, the idea of a follow-up to the moderately successful post-apocalyptic comedy – which had been intermittently convulsing this year – did manifest into something tangible last week when The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that said sequel would be moving forward, with the original cast, no less.

That’s right, after co-screenwriter Paul Wernick teased the living bejesus out of the Pacific Playland faithful, and the other scribe, Rhett Reese, acknowledged an inescapable time jump, we finally received corroboration that Zombieland 2 is officially a go, and the likes of Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) will all be returning to the land of the undead. And now, we know exactly when.
