The fan community has finally come down from the high of seeing what Aquaman looks like in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It was an exciting moment, both because of the character himself and because we hadn’t heard many updates on the film in a while.
Jumping off that, a few minor Batman v Superman updates are now out there. First up, the film’s costume designer, Michael Wilkinson, talked a bit about the responsibility of designing a look for Aquaman. Second, composer Hans Zimmer offered up a few thoughts on the score, which he will soon begin working on. He says that, ideally, all of the heroes in this film will have their own themes and reiterates that Junkie XL will be doing the Batman half of the music.

Now You See Me turned out to be a sleeper hit in the summer of 2013, so the Four Horsemen have reunited for Now You See Me 2. Well, three of the Four Horsemen are, anyway. Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, and Woody Harrelson are all back for the sequel, while Lizzy Caplan has replaced Isla Fisher as the female lead.
Also not returning? Eisenberg’s unruly mop from the first film. In the first cast photo from Now You See Me 2, his hair is closely cropped — presumably because he’s just come off of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hit the jump for your Now You See Me 2 first look, also featuring Mark Ruffalo, Daniel Radcliffe, and Michael Caine.

UPDATE: Star of the film, Henry Cavill, has come out and stated that this story is not true. Read more detail below.
Warner Bros. has yet to comment on this wild rumor, but it’s a super fun one. An image appeared online Friday that appears to be from some kind of promotional material for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. On the image, it says that the movie will be split in two, with Part I, called Enter the Knight, hitting theaters October 23, 2015 and Part II, Dawn of Justice, hitting on the original release date, March 25, 2016.
The order of the dates on the image makes it look like an international image, and the blur on the website makes it unclear if it’s the official site run by Warner Bros. or a fake or fan site. Still, the Batman v Superman split is a fun rumor to discuss none the less. Which we’ll do below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
So many Hollywood films are so fraught with destruction, the complaints directed at Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel were definitely a surprise. At the end of the film, Superman and Zod battle all across the city of Metropolis, creating apocalyptic chaos. It’s basically the same ending of every blockbuster film, with one difference: Superman is usually infallible. He doesn’t do anything that would endanger the public, like throwing his enemy through a skyscraper. Then again, he doesn’t kill people either, and he did that in the movie, too.
The argument was that, in the movie, Superman has only been “Superman” for a few days. He hadn’t fully created his moral code yet, or even explored the depths of his abilities. Then again, he still creates havoc that may or may not have killed thousands of people, which is very un-like the character.
This was, and has continued to be, a big debate since the film’s release. Many expected Snyder’s follow-up, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, to deal with this. We now know not only is that true, we know specifically how Batman v Superman will deal with the Man of Steel destruction complaints.

Jason Momoa has spent the past several months deflecting Aquaman talk, even though we’ve known since this summer that he’d won the role. But now that DC’s finally made the official announcement he’s finally free to spill the details on his splashy superhero gig.

Production just ended on Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the spoilers are already coming faster than a speeding bullet. We’ve been hearing rumored plot points including some major villains, some of the Justice League heroes and much more.
Now comes another potential plot point that’s not exactly a spoiler because it’s about a character who isn’t in the movie at all. This is an important character in the world of the film’s heroes, one you probably expected to be in the film, but apparently is not. Apparently, this character is already dead.
What does this missing character mean for the remainder of the DC Cinematic Universe? Possibly a lot. Read more about the pre-Batman v Superman death below. Read More »
