wonder woman setting

As Wonder Woman worked its way through development, its setting seemed to shift with with the wind. Depending on who was attached to write or direct the movie at any given moment, it was rumored to be set in Ancient Greece. Or during the Roaring ’20s. Or during World War II. Now that the film is actually in production, the “where and when” of the film has finally been settled by Chris Pine, who will be playing Wonder Woman’s love interest, Steve Trevor, in the film.

It’s official now: Wonder Woman will be set during World War I. So there you go.

batman v superman clip

Ever since the first teaser for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we’ve been treated to Ben Affleck‘s Batman kindly asking Henry Cavill‘s Superman if he bleeds. This bizarre exchange has been the subject of countless raised eyebrows and more than a few stifled in-theater chortles. You can say a great many things about the trailers for Zack Snyder‘s superhero epic, but everyone seems to be in agreement that this is one odd line of dialogue upon which to hang so much of your marketing.

Now, thanks to a newly released clip from the film, we get to see that line in context. Does it sound better when performed in a proper scene? Does Superman have a response to it? Does it feel any less creepy?

more mad max movies

Let’s just cut to the chase: the internet can be a big, stupid echo chamber where the wrong information travels like like flames through a dry forest. Or, in this case, like flames across a Warboy convoy soaked in precious guzzoline. Director George Miller has been talking about a making a fifth film in his iconic post-apocalyptic action franchise since before Mad Max: Fury Road came out. And when everyone realized that Fury Road was nothing short of a masterpiece, he started chatting about potential sequels in every single interview.

So there was something fishy about him suddenly saying that he was done making Mad Max movies. And now we know the reason for that particular odor: he was misquoted.

Batman v Superman Villain

All right, folks, it’s time to put on your rumor hats, because the internet has a fresh one regarding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With the movie just a couple months away from release, we’re probably going to start hearing more and more about this big launch into the larger DC Comics cinematic universe, and this new rumor is something that will take us straight into Justice League.

mad max 5

Mad Max: Fury Road was not an easy movie to make. Very few movies are, but last year’s sequel had an especially bumpy ride to the big screen. Developed for over a decade and originally shot in 2012, director George Miller spent a lot of his time working on Fury Road, so it’s understandable he wouldn’t want to make another Mad Max film. Read Miller’s comments on the Mad Max sequel after the jump.

Jesse Eisenberg Lex Luthor

Some fans were apprehensive when Warner Bros. Pictures announced that Jesse Eisenberg was playing Superman’s arch nemesis Lex Luthor in this year’s blockbsuter comic book battle Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, as we’ve surmised from some viral marketing materials, this isn’t the Lex Luthor that fans are used to. Aside from the hair (which will eventually disappear), it’s clear that this character is pretty far removed from previous iterations in almost every way, save for his efforts to destroy Superman.

In a new interview with Eisenberg, the actor revealed that director Zack Snyder originally approached him for a completely different role. In addition, he talks about the bewilderment that comes with taking a role like this and the relief that this version of the character brought to him. Read More »

Batman v Superman TV Spot

Even though the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is just over a couple months away, it doesn’t feel like it. Sure, the excitement is high, but it’s just strange for a movie of that scale to come out in March. But since we’re so close to the release, it’s time for the onslaught of TV spots to begin. Director Zack Snyder just shared a new tease of the movie and it features a taunt from The Dark Knight that fans will love to hear, especially after Superman damages his ride. Watch! Read More »

Batman v Superman Social Network

Based on the reaction to last month’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, fans aren’t quite sure what to make of Jesse Eisenberg‘s take on Lex Luthor. The character looks bubbly, smarmy, and conniving, and a little different from the Luthor fans know. But I’m all for trying something new with a comic book character, especially one we’ve seen as much as this villain, so I’m looking forward to seeing what director Zack Snyder and the actor have done with Superman’s adversary.

In October, Fortune ran a “profile piece” on the mad genius, and now Wired (via ComicBookMovie) has run a Lex Luthor interview as well. Get to know a little bit more about the businessman after the jump.

hans zimmer dunkirk

Hans Zimmer scoring Dunkirk for Christopher Nolan is probably the least surprising news you’ve read all week.

Although the never-not-ambitious director of The Dark Knight and Interstellar is venturing outside of his comfort zone for the upcoming World War II drama, he’s surrounding himself with familiar faces and frequent collaborators. Inception and The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy will act in the film. Editor Lee Smith, who has been cutting Nolan’s films since Batman Begins, is on board. Warner Bros. will foot the bill, just as they have for the majority of Nolan’s projects so far. So of course Zimmer, whose propulsive and bombastic music lent tension and urgency to five previous Nolan movies, is reporting for duty.

And yes, he’s certainly going to slip a dramatic “BRAAAHHM!” or two into this score.
