Of all the Bat-gadgets, perhaps the most popular is the Batmobile. Each interpretation of the Caped Crusader has put its own spin on his favorite ride, and as we’ve already seen in the promotional materials, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is no exception.
In a new interview, production designer Patrick Tatopoulos talks about what makes this Batmobile special, how it’ll be introduced in the movie, and how a certain film that hasn’t even started shooting yet influenced its design. Read all about the Batman v Superman Batmobile after the jump. Read More »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice won’t even hit theaters for another eight months, but the DC Cinematic Universe has no time to waste.

Back in the year 2000, director Steven Spielberg had been slated to direct Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, but he passed on the project, opting to take his career in a different direction by taking on both A.I. Artificial Intelligence (check out a recent visual study of the film) and Minority Report (which is being turned into a TV series). That left the opportunity open for Chris Columbus to step in and launch the franchise as well as directing the sequel, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
But Chris Columbus nearly directed another huge franchise around the same time instead of Harry Potter. Did you know that Chris Columbus was previously the frontrunner to direct Spider-Man before Sam Raimi got the job? Find out more about how we almost got a Chris Columbus Spider-Man movie after the jump! Read More »
In an exciting meshing of old and new franchise stars, X-Men: Days of Future Past effectively rebooted the comic book franchise again, complete with a new timeline that retconned the old one, and brought all your favorite characters who died in the original trilogy back from the dead.
And while the title and basic storyline is lifted directly from a Marvel story arc in the mutant comic book series, there are a significant number of differences between the comic book and the movie, and we’re not just talking little nitpick details here and there. For example, perhaps the biggest change is sending Wolverine back in time in the movie instead of the time-traveler being Kitty Pryde as it is in the comics.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Jon Watts got the gig as the new Spider-Man director for Marvel and Sony thanks in large part to his Sundance entry Cop Car, which casts Kevin Bacon as a sheriff on the trail of two kids who have taken his cruise for a joyride. That film shows a great deal of empathy for, and understanding of the young kids at the center of the film. It’s not difficult to see how that empathy, blown up to a larger scale, would be a big plus for Spider-Man.
Still, we don’t know a lot about Watts. And aside from talk that the new Spider-Man movie, with Tom Holland in the title role, will have something of a John Hughes film quality, we don’t even know much about the project at all. In a new interview, Watts talks in general terms about Spider-Man, and while he’s guarded enough to reveal very little, what he says does help build our understanding of the upcoming film.

While we were at Comic-Con in San Diego earlier this month, we learned quite a bit about the forthcoming sixth season of The Walking Dead premiering in October (check out our full panel recap right here). And the lengthy trailer for the new season also teased plenty of confrontation, zombie action, and even a few new characters in Alexandria.
Now some new photos from the sixth season of The Walking Dead have surfaced, giving us another look at a new character played by Ethan Embry (who can be seen in the aforementioned trailer), as well as previously unseen characters played by Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie) and Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton). See the new Walking Dead season six photos, and find out more about the new characters after the jump! Read More »

Yesterday at the Television Critics Association Summer Press tour, Netflix presented a panel on Longmire, the series they rescued from A&E for a new season on the streaming service. After the panel I approached actor Bailey Chase for a further interview, and he gave me an exclusive story about his work on Batman v Superman.
More interesting, his comments shed a bit of light on one shot from the film that we’ve wondered about: the image of people on horseback seen in the Comic Con trailer. Read More »
Every time a new Marvel Studios film comes out, there’s an influx of stories surrounding the film, from how it effects the future of the Marvel cinematic universe to easter eggs and more. The latest release is Ant-Man, and we’ve certainly run the gamut of stories surrounding the tiny superhero.

Now we’ve got an Ant-Man sweded trailer, giving a quaint, homemade makeover to the big budget blockbusters, and it’s simultaneously adorable and impressive. Watch below! Read More »
