Superman and the Dceu: Henry Cavill Never Stood a Chance

Henry Bevan on Superman and Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill is Superman no more. When the Hollywood Reporter dropped this rumour and suggested Warner Bros. want to replace him Michael B. Jordan, the internet went into a tizzy. Some were happy to see him leave. Others were angry at DC and Warners. Many were angry their timeline was full of something they didn’t care about.

The actor himself responded with a bizarre video that didn’t confirm or deny his exit, and people must remember there has been no confirmation that he is hanging up the cape. Regardless, Superman will exist after Cavill. The actor is only renting the Fortress of Solitude.

Naturally, people are discussing Cavill’s legacy. Due to the binary nature of social media, the dialogue is split into good and bad. Professionals like Nicolas Cage and Steven S DeKnight have praised his performance, others have argued

Bryan Singer in Talks to Direct ‘Red Sonja’ for Avi Lerner’s Millennium
Bryan Singer is in negotiations to direct “Red Sonja” for Avi Lerner’s Millennium Media, according to a spokeswoman for the producer.

The news comes three months after Singer received the directing credit for Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” despite being replaced by Dexter Fletcher during the latter stages of the shoot. Fletcher came on board to direct in December after Fox fired Singer from the project after repeated absences from the set had forced the studio to halt production.

Singer’s other directing credits include “The Usual Suspects,” “Superman Returns,” “X-Men,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and “X-Men: Apocalypse.” He was also dropped as an executive producer on FX’s “Legion” in January in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations.

Millennium Media announced in November during the American Film Market that it was rebooting “Red Sonja” and was planning to finance and produce a new movie based on the female warrior.

DC's Supergirl Movie is Rumored To Feature Brainiac as The Villain

One of Warner Bros.’ main focus right now is getting a Supergirl movie made. That’s one of the reasons that was given as to why Henry Cavill and the studio decided to part ways on Superman. As of right now there are no plans for another Superman movie.

But today we have some information regarding the main villain in the planned Supergirl film. According to a rumor that spawned from SuperBroMovies' Daniel Rpk, Brainiac could end up being the the big bad villain in the story.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this turned out to be true. Brainiac is a great DC villain that has yet to be brought to the big screen. He was supposed to be the villain in Kevin Smith, Tim Burton, and Nicolas Cage’s Superman Lives, but that never happened. He was also reportedly the planned villain for the sequel to Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns.

Bradley Cooper Addresses ‘A Star Is Born’ Producer Jon Peters’ Harassment Charges
Bradley Cooper, the director, producer, writer, and lead actor in the upcoming “A Star Is Born” remake, spoke for the first time about the sexual harassment allegations against one-time producer Jon Peters. Peters, who produced the 1976 version with Barbra Streisand, has been accused by numerous women of harassment in cases ranging from 1996 to 2008.

Cooper said although he needed Peters’ permission to remake the film, he was not aware of the allegations against him.

“Luckily, Jon wasn’t there [on set]. And if I had known all those things, I would have done it differently,” Cooper told NPR. “I wanted to make the movie, I knew I had to get consent from him, otherwise there’s no film. But I should have checked. I guess that’s the thing.”

The actor went on to say that he created a safe environment on set, and Peters was involved due to a “grandfather clause of the movie.

The Internet Wants Nicolas Cage To Be The Next Superman

While the announcement that Henry Cavill would be stepping down from his role as Superman left many a DC fan feeling disappointed, some are choosing to stay optimistic, and suggesting that now might finally be the time for the legendary Nicolas Cage to assume the role.

As the actor who named his son Kal-El, it’s no secret that Cage is a fan of the Man of Steel, and there was once a time when it looked like he would be donning the red cape himself. For those unaware of this strange saga from the ‘90s, Superman Lives was a cancelled film that was to be directed by Tim Burton, written by Kevin Smith, and featured the endlessly meme-able star in the title role. Evidently, the movie never came into existence, but the film’s journey through development hell was interesting enough to spawn a movie in itself, with the

Henry Cavill Should Have Been the Next Great Superman

To quote a pretty well-known comic book arc from 1993: "He first came to us in an hour of need, when society had grown dark and cynical and it seemed that greed had become the American Way." That time, of course, was the year 2011; Transformers: Dark of the Moon was one of the biggest movies of the year, Game of Thrones was but a wee baby fantasy series debuting on HBO, and there hadn't been a big-screen Kryptonian since 2006's disastrously uninteresting Superman Returns. And then Warner Bros. announced British actor Henry Cavill would slap …

Warner Bros. Says Jon Peters Has ‘A Star Is Born’ Producer Credit for Legal Reasons as Sexual Harassment Charges Resurface

Warner Bros. and the Producers Guild of America (PGA) have both weighed in on producer Jon Peters’ involvement with Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born” as sexual harassment charges from Peters’ past begin to resurface in the wake of the film’s awards season buzz. At least five sexual assault allegations have been made against Peters, ranging from 1996 to 2008, all of which were brought up in a detailed report by Jezebel published September 11.

A spokesperson for Warner Bros. says Peters’ credit on Cooper’s directorial debut is solely for legal reasons. “Jon Peters’ attachment to this property goes as far back as 1976,” the spokesperson said. “Legally, we had to honor the contractual obligation in order to make this film.”

The 1976 version of “A Star Is Born,” directed by Frank Pierson and starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, was produced by Peters. Because the producer was still a rights holder

Jon Peters Is Not a PGA-Certified Producer on ‘A Star Is Born,’ Guild Says

  • The Wrap
Jon Peters Is Not a PGA-Certified Producer on ‘A Star Is Born,’ Guild Says
Jon Peters has not been certified by the Producer’s Guild of America for the 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born” starring Bradley Cooper and Lady GaGa, the PGA tells TheWrap. He will therefore not receive the guild credit next to his name, and is ineligible for any PGA award should the film be nominated.

The PGA disclosed the determination after an article Monday on Jezebel resurfaced accusations of sexual harassment made against Peters by at least five different women. Notably, in 2011, Peters was ordered to pay $3 million in damages to Shelly Morita, his former personal assistant, who among other accusations said Peters touched her inappropriately during the filming of “Superman Returns” in Australia. Peters has consistently denied the accusations.

The PGA determination means Peters, who also produced the 1976 version of “A Star Is Born,” is unlikely to be eligible for a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards next year.

PGA Says Jon Peters Not a Certified Producer on ‘A Star Is Born’ as Sexual Harassment Charges Resurface
The Producers Guild of America has determined that Jon Peters is not part of the certified producing team for “A Star Is Born” and won’t be eligible for the PGA’s Darryl F. Zanuck Award as the top feature film.

A guild spokesperson disclosed the determination Tuesday that Peters has not received the PGA Mark. That came following the publication on Jezebel of a detailed report of numerous sexual harassment cases against the producer ranging from 1996 to 2008. Warner Bros. is releasing the Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga drama on Oct. 5.

Warner Bros. released a brief statement Tuesday saying it will have to continue calling Peters a producer: “Jon Peters’ attachment to this property goes as far back as 1976. Legally, we had to honor the contractual obligation in order to make this film.”

Peters is also not a PGA member. As far as which producers accept the Academy Award for best picture,

Kevin Spacey’s ‘Billionaire Boys Club’ Bottoms Out With Measly $618 Box Office Debut
Kevin Spacey’s “Billionaire Boy’s Club” grossed an abysmal $618 its opening weekend from 11 theaters in select states.

It’s by far the worst opening of Spacey’s career, which peaked in 2006 with the $52.5 million debut of “Superman Returns.” His new crime drama earned just $126 on opening day from eight locations, and grossed $287 from 10 screens in its first two days in theaters.

Filmed in 2015 and released with no publicity following a VOD release last month, “Billionaire Boys Club” was one of Spacey’s final projects before he was hit with more than two dozen sexual misconduct accusations last fall.

Kevin Spacey’s ‘Billionaire Boys Club’ Bombs With $287 in First Two Days at Box Office
Kevin Spacey’s latest film, “Billionaire Boys Club,” has earned the lowest box office opening of the year, making just $287 from 10 screens in its first two days in theaters, according to an individual with knowledge of the numbers.

To break it down, it brought in $126 on its opening day and an additional $162 on Saturday. If the current national ticket price average of $9.27 is used, that means that no more than 31 people bought tickets to see the crime drama.

The Evolution of Superman

Superman is undeniably a pop culture icon and one of the most well-known superheroes seen in comics, on TV and on the big screen. The face of Superman may have changed over the years but his incredible fan base will always remain. With his trademark ‘S’ emblazed across his chest in red, flowing cape and red pants, Superman burst on to the scene in 1938 at a time of great need and he has gone on to inspire an entire franchise and built a league of super-fan followers from every generation…

To celebrate the release of The Death of Superman, available on Digital Download now and on DVD and Blu-ray August 6th, we’re taking a look back at how the leading Man of Steel has grown and changed over the past 80 years.

Henry Cavill Gets Classic Superman Curl In Awesome Fan-Made Edit

Henry Cavill’s Superman infamously began as a much more somber take on the Man of Steel. However, by the time of his resurrection in Justice League, he’d been retooled as a character more in line with the version of Supes that DC fans have in their heads. That said, he’s still never really sported the classic ‘S’ hair curl that was once a fixture of the hero’s look.

If you’ve always wanted to see what Cavill’s Superman would appear like with the hair-lick though, you’re in luck. An awesome fan edit of a Man of Steel promo photo has surfaced this week and it brightens up the darker colors of his suit and puts things right by giving the actor the Christopher Reeve curl.

Much like the classic red trunks, Superman’s curl hasn’t been in fashion for a while now, with

Zack Snyder Shares First Photo Of Henry Cavill In Man Of Steel Costume

Up until Tim Burton’s Batman stormed theaters in 1989, costume designers working on superhero flicks had yet to think outside of the spandex box. Slowly but surely, though, we saw new territory charted with leather and other fabrics in trendsetters such as 2000’s X-Men and 2002’s Spider-Man.

Though each outfit worn by Superman in various movie and TV productions had all been accurate to the comics, the aforementioned spandex look now seems dated in a world where this area has taken major strides. To be honest, I didn’t hate the threads Brandon Routh donned in 2006’s Superman Returns, but I felt the right formula had yet to be found.

Fortunately, Zack Snyder and company exceeded my expectations in 2013 with Man of Steel, affording the timeless icon a suit that was every bit as badass as something the Dark Knight would sport. Being sleek and sans red trunks, Henry Cavill

Bryan Singer Will Get Directing Credit on ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’
Bryan Singer has received the directing credit for Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” despite being replaced by Dexter Fletcher during the latter stages of the shoot.

Fletcher came on board to direct in December after Fox fired Singer from the project after repeated absences from the set had forced the studio to halt production.

Fox is opening the movie on Nov. 2. The studio confirmed a report about the directing credit Tuesday in Empire Magazine.

“Bryan Singer is the credited director of the film,” producer Graham King said. “Basically, Bryan had some personal issues going on. He wanted to hiatus the movie to deal with them, and the movie had to get finished. That was what it came down to… It wasn’t about reinventing the wheel. We needed someone who would have some creative freedom, but work inside a box.”

King also said in the interview that Fletcher shot footage for about 16 days.

A List Of Possible Titles For Wonder Woman 2 Have Surfaced

I’m not nearly as harsh on the DC Extended Universe as others may be, as I think – despite some missteps – that there’s a lot to enjoy about what’s been served up thus far. Still, I must concede that its finest offering to date was that of the Amazon Warrior’s first solo movie, so I’m right there with anyone else who’s eagerly anticipating Wonder Woman 2.

Of course, it’s assumed that’s merely a placeholder title because numbering DC movies just hasn’t been the modus operandi of Warner Bros. since the days of Christopher Reeve’s Superman. Granted, not many other heroes from this brand aside from Batman have been granted sequels in the time since, but you can’t deny the pattern that’s emerged.

So, before we move on, let’s go over what we do know about Diana Prince’s next adventure.
