Update: Henry Cavill‘s manager Dany Garcia has confirmed that another Superman standalone movie is a top priority right now:
“Henry has a big appetite,” she told Newsweek about Cavill’s Hollywood ambitions. “We’ve been in a five-month period of time where he’s re-strategizing, acquiring property , he’s filming [‘Justice League‘] now, he’s in development for the Superman standalone… he’s beginning to expand that world. It’s beautifully teed up. In a year from now, or two years from now, he’s going to be a force globally.”
I wonder how the Superman world will be expanded.

Next year’s Justice League will see Henry Cavill step into the Superman suit for the third time on the big screen, but said suit might look a little different this time around. While the Superman uniform remained pretty consistent from 2013’s Man of Steel to this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Cavill is teasing a new costume for his next outing as the the DC superhero. Take a peek at the black Superman suit below. Read More »
Some of your favorite actors and actresses can be just as geeky and nerdy as you and me. However, since they have some of the most recognizable faces on the planet, they can’t walk around places like the Comic-Con show floor without being bombarded with fans looking to snap a picture or get an autograph. That means celebrities often have to have some kind of disguise in order to enjoy Comic-Con like an average attendee, and Henry Cavill did just that this past week.
In a video posted to the actor’s Instagram, Henry Cavill shows how he donned the Guy Fawkes mask from V for Vendetta in order to walk around Comic-Con. He even snapped some photos with fans wearing Superman shirts and ended up surprising some of the cast members of Suicide Squad during an autograph signing sessions at the DC Comics booth. See the Henry Cavill Comic-Con disguise fun after the jump. Read More »
When Warner Bros announced their Hall H line-up for San Diego Comic Con International 2016, Justice League was mysteriously absent. So its not shocking that Zack Snyder brought his still-in-production film to San Diego — its more like an expected surprise. They revealed a new piece of Justice League concept art, giving you a better look at the Aquaman and Flash costumes. We also got a sizzle reel, which you can watch below.

Ever since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hit theaters, fans have been buzzing about the possibility of a standalone Batman movie starring Ben Affleck. And after Gal Gadot‘s truly epic debut as Wonder Woman, it’s no wonder people seem hyped for her upcoming standalone movie. But what about the third member of the DC trinity? Will Henry Cavill‘s Superman ever get to fly solo again?
While there’s no Man of Steel 2 on the Warner Bros. release schedule just yet, Cavill and director Zack Snyder aren’t ruling one out. It’s just that they need to find the right time. Or get the right script. Or they’re waiting to see how things shake out with Batman v Superman. Or something.

If the box office numbers are any indication, then all of you saw director Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice over the weekend. And why not? Negative reviews or not, the film is a proper event and a gigantic, towering moment in geek culture. Those bad reviews grease up discussion and inspire conversation, even as they try to warn you against actually seeing the movie.
And since you’ve seen it, we’re going to take a slightly deeper dive into the movie today, hand-picking stuff that works and stuff that doesn’t work for the purposes of spirited debate. Think of this as less of a review and more of an opportunity to pick this movie apart and/or defend it. And like it or not, Batman v Superman offers a lot to talk about. Spoilers follow.

Whether you liked Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or not (and don’t forget that regardless of your opinion, you’re 100% right), there’s no denying that the film is a box office success. We’ll get to the specific numbers below.
However, if box office numbers don’t interest you, the real meaty part of this story is director Zack Snyder talking about the ending of the film, which has been a little controversial for some comic book fans. But since that delves into major spoiler territory, we’ve saved that chatter about the Batman v Superman ending for after the jump, along with some of the director’s thoughts about the forthcoming assembly of Justice League.

After debuting with the usual preview screenings last night, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is in theaters everywhere this weekend. But before the film had even been seen by a majority of the general public, there was already an uproar on the internet when negative reviews started rolling in. And it wasn’t just a few negative words here and there.
Critics have largely been unkind to the film, resulting in a current 30%, with an average 5.1/10 rating, on Rotten Tomatoes (down slightly form earlier in the week), making it worse than the abysmal X-Men Origins: Wolverine. That upset some of the fans who were lucky enough to see it early, as well as tons of fans who hadn’t even seen the movie yet. It’s par for the course with a comic book movie.
However, this time there was some quick response from director Zack Snyder as well as cast members Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams about the negative reviews. But there’s one particular response to the negative reviews that is really frustrating to see, and it opens up a discussion about film criticism and fandom at large that must be had.
So let’s dive into this debate stirred up by Batman v Superman critics and fans below. Read More »

Nearly three years after Man of Steel, Zack Snyder is back with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, an ambitious film that not only attempts to play out the aftermath of the attack on Metropolis in the last movie, but also set up Warner Bros’ DC Universe film franchise. Batman v Superman is a overlong, poorly plotted, thinly characterized, painfully dour mess, but it’s a gorgeously shot mess that has the kind of spectacle and grandeur that you’d hope for from a major big budget release.

We’re less than a week away from seeing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice debut on the big screen, giving DC Comics fans the cinematic match-up they’ve been dreaming about for years. So far the trailers and TV spots have fans divided on their excitement for the battle, mostly due to their enjoyment or distaste for director Zack Snyder, but the box office tracking indicates this is undoubtedly going to be a huge movie.
If you’re desperate for as much footage from the movie as possible, you can check out five Batman v Superman clips. They’re basically extended bits of footage of snippets that we’ve seen in the trailers. We get a bit more of the battle of words between Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), but characters like Alfred (Jeremy Irons), Lex Luthor (Jesse Eiesenberg) Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne) get some more screentime as well. Plus, one clip shows us a saucy exchange between Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince (Gal Gadot).
