It’s really a shame that Man of Steel didn’t give Henry Cavill much room to show off his charm, because as the new trailer for Guy Ritchie‘s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. shows, he’s got it in spades. The big-screen remake of the ’60s series stars Cavill as CIA agent Napoleon Solo, who’s forced to team with KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) to, I don’t know, save the world or something.
The specifics of the plot aren’t important. The key thing is that it offers Cavill and Hammer an excuse to engage in snarky banter, wear sharp suits, drive cool cars, and blow up shiny things. Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, and Hugh Grant also star. Watch the new The Man From UNCLE trailer, and check out a new poster, after the jump.

Here’s the first full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it sees the world of DC’s comic book heroes reeling from the aftereffects of Man of Steel.
As humanity struggles to come to terms with the presence of the godlike Superman (Henry Cavill) we hear a clamor of voices discussing the post-Superman world. Some sound like real-world quotes — are Charlie Rose and Neil deGrasse Tyson heard early on? — while others, such as Jesse Eisenberg‘s Lex Luthor, are definitely unique residents of the DC Movie Universe.
And then there’s Jeremy Irons as Alfred, who is heard in voiceover after the rumbling dies down, and Ben Affleck, whose Batman looks incredibly huge even without armor. The confrontation promised by the movie’s title is teased with a question phrased as both a command, and a threat: “Tell me… do you bleed?”

Henry Cavill took a break from being Superman to be The Man From U.N.C.L.E. for Warner Bros. and Guy Ritchie, and now you can see the first footage of him in action. The film features Cavill and Armie Hammer as a pair of unlikely American and Russian spies who work together in the swinging ’60s and the Cold War.
Imagine a spy movie with the action sensibility of Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes movies, filtered through the visual sense of the first couple seasons of Mad Men and you’ll be in the ballpark. Check out the Man From UNCLE trailer below. Read More »
Superman‘s on-screen history is fascinating. There was the early TV show, the Christopher Reeve films, the rumored curse around the role, several failed reboots, including one that made it to the big screen, and now a successful reboot that’s playing into a bigger DC universe.
Adding even more myth to the role, the last two cinematic iterations of the character, Brandon Routh in Superman Returns and Henry Cavill in Man of Steel, each almost put on the “S” several years before. Both actors auditioned for one of the failed reboots, Superman Flyby, which was to be directed by McG from a script by J.J. Abrams. It’s a pretty fascinating coincidence and you can link to photos of their Superman Flyby auditions, including a very different Superman costume, below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The Warner Bros. DC Movie slate is set. From Batman v Superman in 2016 through Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, The Flash, a two part Justice League movie, Aquaman, Shazam, Cyborg and Green Lantern in 2020, that’s a whole lot of spandex on the big screen for the rest of this decade.
However, the press release also says this. “Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release a slate of at least 10 movies—as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman films—from 2016 through 2020 that expands this prized universe of characters.”
So in that time frame, if things go according to plan, not only are we getting the ten movies mentioned above, but new Batman and Superman solo movies too. Read More »
Okay, so as I said yesterday, we usually try to focus on entertainment news and avoid celebrity stories, but the Star Wars Episode 7 cast and crew taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge felt entertainment news-worthy enough to feature on the site. I honestly thought that was the last of those videos we’d feature on /Film but now the comic book superheroes are taking the challenge in full costume: Henry Cavill and Amy Adams both took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on the set of Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in their film costumes. I’m going to call it the Superman Ice Bucket Challenge.
Thats right, Cavill is wearing his complete Man of Steel Superman suit and Adams is dressed as reporter Lois Lane. We absolutely needed to share this video in case you missed it. And one Ice Bucket Challenge is nothing for Superman, so they give our favorite alien superhero something extra. Watch the Superman ice bucket challenge video embedded after the jump now.

Saturday during the Warner Bros presentation at 2014 San Diego Comic Con International, director Zack Snyder showed up at the Hall H panel. Snyder said that he was shooting the Man of Steel sequel Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice last night, but jumped on a plane to come to Comic Con. Snyder then showed a short little teaser for the film featuring some iconic imagery. Read a Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer description after the jump

I’m not really sure what this photo means, or if it’s just some playful pre-Comic Con fun, but either way I thought it was worth sharing. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (yup, that’s still the title) director Zack Snyder tweeted a photo of Man of Steel star Henry Cavill in a black hood holding a light saber with the hashtag #superjedi. We’re pretty sure this has nothing to do with a Star Wars crossover (two different studios and well, never gonna happen) but the backdrop of the portrait suggests Superman’s new black robe look has something to do with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is expected to appear at the Warner Bros Comic con panel later this week. See the full Super Jedi photo after the jump.
