Directing a massive superhero film has lots of privileges. Money? Sure. Fame? Of course. But also the ability to geek out and see things before anyone else in the world. In a new interview, Zack Snyder – the director of Man of Steel and 2016’s Batman vs. Superman – admits he doesn’t know when fans will get to see the new Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman costumes. But he has a huge of them photo up in his office, geeks out over it daily, and really wants to upload it. He just knows he can’t.
He also talks about the first moment Batman was mentioned as a possible foil for Superman in the sequel, what it will be like when they finally show down, the “rivalry” with Marvel Studios and, oddly, Slashfilm. Read the quotes below. Read More »
Hans Zimmer provided the emotional sound of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, and he he helped build the soul of Zack Snyder’s new Superman, too, for Man of Steel. But Zimmer has been reluctant to commit to the Batman vs. Superman film that acts as sequel to Man of Steel, because it will bridge his own Superman, and a new version of Batman. It’s a strange spot to be in for a composer. Yet it seems that whatever reservations the composer had are now slipping away, as he says in a recent interview that he’s going to work on ideas for Batman vs. Superman. Read More »

So far, most of the Batman vs. Superman actors announced are playing very familiar roles. We’ve got Henry Cavill as Superman, of course, plus Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and Jeremy Irons as Alfred. But last week, a trio of names were added with no indications about which characters they’d be playing.
Today, we finally might have some dirt on one of them. According to a new rumor, Holly Hunter will be a woman who has a history with Batman in the comics. Hit the jump for more details.

The battle for May 6, 2016 just took an interesting turn. In an new interview, Dan Fellman, the president of domestic distribution for Warner Bros., said “at this time, we not considering a change of date for Batman vs. Superman.” The quote comes a day after Marvel Studios made official what we’d heard a few weeks back: Captain America 3 will open on the same date. So will two of the potentially biggest superhero movies in history actually open on the same day? Most certainly not. But which one will move? Read more below. Read More »
Briefly: Three new actors have been added to the cast of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel, tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman. They are Oscar winner Holly Hunter, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 300: Rise of an Empire player Callan Mulvey and Tao Okamoto, Logan’s love interest in The Wolverine. While there’s no word on specifically which role each actor will play, the roles are not from the comics and have been created specifically for the movie.

Any property with a devoted following also typically has a very vocal following. When fans aren’t convinced a superhero movie is doing justice to the source material — or a TV show is headed in the right direction, or a reboot gets the old characters quite right — they’ll say so, loudly and repeatedly. Whether anyone is actually listening, though, is another question.
David Goyer, for one, says he doesn’t necessarily find it worthwhile to listen to “fan chatter.” In fact, the Man of Steel scribe thinks studios and networks stumble by paying too much attention to what fans think they want. Hit the jump to read his comments.

Batman vs. Superman starts filming in about a month and director Zack Snyder couldn’t be happier. In a new interview, the director talks about geeking out when he’s in the same room as the new suits, and discusses the backlash over his casting decisions such as Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Ben Affleck as Batman. Most interestingly though, he says the film “explodes” the universes of each character because they’re “not as tied to the mythology.” Read his quotes below. Read More »

The topic of Gal Gadot playing Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman, has been one of very heated discussion. First there’s the issue of Snyder putting a third major superhero into the film. Then there’s the possibility of finally getting a Wonder Woman movie. Finally, some have even criticized the casting saying Gadot is too skinny to play the super-heroine. While all this debate has been circling, everyone in the Batman vs. Superman camp has more or less kept quiet.
Now an Israeli entertainment show has what they’re touting as Gadot’s first interview since being cast. In it she talks about the training, her body type and more. Unfortunately, the whole thing is in Hebrew, but thanks to the magic of the Internet, we’ve got a translation below. Read More »
