San Diego Comic-Con has yet to officially release its schedule, but many things are already going on. We know Disney and Lucasfilm are bringing Star Wars to Hall H at some point Friday, we’ve heard definitively that Marvel Studios is skipping this year, and now two more studios are joining Marvel on the sidelines. These are Sony and Paramount, two studios who had very good Comic Con panels last year but reportedly don’t feel they have enough to show this year.
One studio which will be showing up is Warner Bros., as confirmed by Lex Luthor himself, Jesse Eisenberg. In a new interview, the Oscar nominee confirmed he’ll be at Comic-Con for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Read all the info below. Read More »

The Internet has made a sport of questioning how Warner Bros. is handling their DC properties. First fans scoffed at Man of Steel. Next they hated Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman. Many felt a Batman v Superman movie was a rush. Ditto for Justice League. Then there was Jared Leto’s Joker make-up, the loss of Michelle MacLaren as Wonder Woman director and the fact they’re using multiple screenwriters to figure out many of these movies. It’s like Superhero Movie Whack-A-Mole, there’s always something to hit.
So it’s nice for one of the people responsible for those decisions to finally get his say. That would be the head of film production at Warner Bros., Greg Silverman. He, along with marketing president Sue Kroll and CEO Kevin Tsujihara are the three people most directly responsible for green lighting movies at Warner Bros. In a new interview, Silverman explained the strategy of having multiple screenwriters tackle some of the DC movies, how their DC movies will attempt to be different from Marvel’s and more.

Our first, and so far only official look at Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice revealed that Jesse Eisenberg would be sporting the character’s classic chrome dome. But it didn’t reveal much else. We still don’t know how exactly he’ll fit into the story, or even what the rest of him will look like.
Now, however, a juicy new rumor suggests Eisenberg’s Lex will be borrowing some other aspects of the character’s comic book appearance as well — namely, his purple and green warsuit. Read all about the Lex Luthor warsuit rumor after the jump. Read More »
Fans first saw the Ben Affleck Batman suit in a cryptic, black and white image next to the Batmobile. Then there was a shadowy close up on the cowl. The full Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer revealed more of the full body, then we saw the full suit, but again bathed in shadow. That was followed by a video with all three costumes. By that point, it was obvious Zack Snyder and his team were being careful to show the full suit, giving fans just enough to keep them guessing.
They probably still want to do be mysterious but leave it to the Internet to foil those plans. Two new images of Ben Affleck’s Batman have now arrived online. One is the Batman v Superman IMAX poster image, with the distracting Superman symbol removed, and then there’s the same shot, but from a step back and in full color, leaving the whole suit up to intense scrutiny. Check out the latest images of the Ben Affleck Batman suit below. Read More »

Last week was a weird one for Zack Snyder and his film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film’s first trailer was briefly teased on Instagram, then released online in low-quality bootleg form, forcing Warner Bros. to officially release the trailer days in advance of its planned theatrical IMAX debut. (That’s still happening tonight.) But that’s all out there now, so we’ll just move forward. Now you can get a look at the primary Batman v Superman costumes thanks to a video featuring NBA star DeAndre Jordan checking out a Warner Bros. exhibit of the suits and new Batmobile.
UPDATE: B-Roll footage has now been put online with a much more detailed look at the costumes. Read More »
