Earlier this year, Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder called a local Detroit radio station to defend Aquaman. This was before Jason Momoa was officially announced as the character, so it created a bit of a stir. Plus, how often do major film directors call local radio during production to talk about their film? Not often.
Well, Snyder is at it again. The production of Batman v Superman is almost done in the Detroit, Michigan area and the director called the same radio station to thank the city for their support. He also offered an update on the production, teased returning for Justice League and more about Aquaman. Listen to the audio and read his Batman v Superman Detroit quotes below. Read More »

Everyone knew Jason Momoa was Aquaman. The trades reported it, Zack Snyder talked about the character, and Momoa teased it, but no one would confirm it officially until Warner Bros. made a move. That finally happened last week, when the full DC Comics schedule was revealed. Momoa will play Aquaman in two Justice League movies and in a solo movie due in 2018. He’s also likely to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Because the news is out there, Momoa can finally talk about the role, and he’s got some good things to say. At a recent convention, the Game of Thrones actor talked about respecting the secrecy of the project, the honor he feels in playing the role because of his Polynesian heritage and what he thinks the solo movie might be about. Read the new Jason Momoa Aquaman quotes below. Read More »
A news report out of Detroit has a few big bits of information about Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman, and the biggest report is that a character long-speculated about will finally appear in the film. According to a local reporter, Robin will make an appearance. And in keeping with the influence from Frank Miller’s Batman story The Dark Knight Returns, the Batman v Superman Robin will be female.
Those who’ve been following along with Batman v Superman rumors probably know where this is going, but we’ll keep the real info after the jump for those who want to avoid detailed spoilers.
Update: One part of this story has been confirmed, though we don’t have final confirmation on Robin’s appearance (or lack thereof) in the film.

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.

UPDATE: Ben Affleck is currently shooting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We’ve seen photos of him on set, he appeared at Comic-Con to promote it, but not much has changed in regards to his feelings.
In September 2013, the actor praised the script’s unique take on the character, the work of director Zack Snyder, and discussed how he got cast – with Warner Bros. showing him clips of previous superhero casting backlash. Now, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said all of this again. We’ve got the new Ben Affleck Batman quotes, along with the old ones (and a video), below.
