Batman Superman

In the first press release announcing Batman would appear in the sequel to Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder revealed the major players from that film would return. Perry White played by Laurence Fishburne, Ma Kent played by Diane Lane and, of course, Lois Lane played by Amy Adams. That last one was crucial because her relationship with Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) had just started to blossom as that film ended.

Batman Superman

In the past decade, one man has been responsible for setting the mood for both Batman and Superman: Hans Zimmer. The Oscar-winning composer wrote (or co-wrote) the music for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy — Batman Begins, The Dark Knight (with James Newton Howard) and The Dark Knight Rises — as well as for Zack Snyder‘s Superman film, Man of Steel.

At a recent event, Zimmer was posed with the question about possibly scoring Snyder’s upcoming film and gave a very interesting answer. Read More »

Yes, the flood gates have officially opened — and opened wide — on fan reactions and mashups for Zack Snyder‘s July 17, 2015 film Batman vs. Superman. All we officially know about the film is the cast from Man of Steel, including Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, will be back, and Ben Affleck will join them as Batman. Bryan Cranston has been rumored to be playing Lex Luthor. No matter what you read, however, that is nothing more than a rumor at this point.
