Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice - Batman

Though the DC Extended Universe began with Man of Steel, we’ve been hearing Superman might take a backseat to Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In a recent interview, director Zack Snyder confirmed that is indeed the case, but he offers a pretty good reason for that apparent imbalance. Read the more Batman Zack Snyder comments after the jump.  Read More »

Zack Snyder Man of Steel

We’re in a boom time for superhero movies, with something like 20 more planned for the next five years. Nevertheless, Steven Spielberg predicted last week that it wouldn’t last, saying the genre would “go the way of the Western.” And surprisingly, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder doesn’t necessarily disagree.

“I feel like he’s right,” Snyder admitted. Still, he thinks Batman and Superman will stand the test of time — unlike, say, “flavor of the week Ant-Man.” Read the Zack Snyder Steven Spielberg superhero comments after the jump.  Read More »

Rumor: ‘Wonder Woman’ Setting Revealed?

Wonder Woman setting

Although we’ve had an eye on Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman for a while now, we actually don’t know a whole lot about it at this point. It’s confirmed that Patty Jenkins will direct, with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine starring. Beyond that, we don’t know what it’ll be about, who the villain will be, or when and where it takes place.

All we have to go by right now is rumor and speculation, and on that front one particularly interesting tidbit is making the rounds today. While an earlier rumor indicated Wonder Woman would be set in the 1920s, this new one says it’ll go back even further than that. More about the possible Wonder Woman setting after the jump.  Read More »

Batman v Superman Adding More Batman

Before Ben Affleck was officially locked down to direct, co-write and star in his own solo Batman movie at Warner Bros., the story started as a rumor following a test screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice attended by the film’s crew and studio executives.

While the reaction to the screening was reportedly overwhelmingly positive, a new rumor says Warner Bros. now wants to make some changes. Supposedly the studio thinks that Batman v Superman needs more of Ben Affleck as Batman in the movie and less of Henry Cavill as Superman. Why? Well, the reasoning is that Affleck is blowing Cavill off the screen, so they think more of The Dark Knight will only help the movie. Details on Batman v Superman adding more Batman to the flick below! Read More »

Wonder Woman cinematographer

UPDATE: Much as we’d love to see a Wonder Woman movie shot by Hoyte van Hoytema, the cinematographer insists it isn’t happening. “I have nothing to do with that movie,” he told The Playlist. Original story from September 3 follows.

We’ve had new information on Wonder Woman only very occasionally, but with the film getting ready to shoot in the fall with Patty Jenkins directing, we’ll soon start to learn a lot more about the movie.

We know that Gal Gadot (above) plays Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, and Chris Pine will be Steve Trevor. Now there’s a credible rumor that Hoyte van Hoytema, who shot films such as Interstellar and the upcoming Spectre, will be the Wonder Woman cinematographer. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

American Wolf

Last year, Warner Bros. got hold of a story called American Wolf. That’s the film concept based on a book proposal from a  Texas Monthly editor that tells the story of a hunter who accidentally kills an endangered wolf while on a trip in Yellowstone. Leonardo DiCaprio’s company Appian Way, with Langley Park, picked up the rights last year, and Warner Bros. will release the eventual film. And now Scott Cooper (Out of the Furnace, seen above, Black Mass) is in talks to direct.  Read More »

Zod Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice casket

A few weeks ago, Michael Shannon sent the Internet in a tizzy when he casually revealed Zod would have flippers for hands in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Did this back up certain rumors about a certain transformation? Was he actually talking about flippers, or just flipper-shaped prosthetics? For that matter, why’s Zod in Batman v Superman at all?

Well, Shannon’s finally got some answers for us, sort of. The actor has walked back those Zod flipper hands comments, claiming that it was all a joke and he made the whole thing up. And while Shannon is involved with Batman v Superman, it’s a voice-only role. Read his clarification after the jump.  Read More »
