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 »

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.

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.
