There are dozens of Hollywood projects that never happened, but few are spoken of so wistfully as the superhero movies that were scrapped. From the Nicolas Cage-starring Superman Lives to Guillermo del Toro’s Justice League Dark, there have been articles and even documentaries covering them.
Longtime screenwriter, producer, and director Akiva Goldsman is shedding some light on one of those scrapped superhero projects — the original Batman vs. Superman movie from the early 2000s that was set to be directed by Wolfgang Petersen and star Colin Farrell as Batman and Jude Law as Superman. But alas, it was not meant to be, and the project was canceled. However, Goldsman recently revealed what could have been with the scrapped superhero movie, calling it “the darkest thing you’ve ever seen.”

When the new trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice debuted in Hall H at Comic-Con in San Diego, you could feel the excitement from fans. But how does the trailer play to more general audiences? Or more specifically, how does it play to the elderly?
That’s what Fine Brothers Entertainment, the folks behind those adorable Kids React videos (we recently featured some youngsters learning that Transformers existed before 2007), found out when they sat down some lovely old people to watch the most recent trailer for the DC Comics match-up for the first time. Their reactions might be more adorable than the kids.

Last fall, a rumor surfaced that Robin would be appearing in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and in a way unlike any version of the Dark Knight’s sidekick we’ve seen on screen before. This incarnation of the character was rumored to be female. And there were even rumblings that Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch star Jena Malone was playing the character.
However, we’ve since seen that Robin is likely dead in Batman v. Superman, seemingly killed by The Joker in a quick shot glimpsed in the most recent trailer that debuted at Comic-Con. The suit the sidekick wore doesn’t look to belong to a female with the physique of Jena Malone, and is likely a young man played by the director’s son Eli Snyder.
So if Jena Malone isn’t playing Robin, then just who is her character? We may finally have an answer. Find out more about Jena Malone in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice after the jump, but beware of potential spoilers! Read More »
When the latest trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was unleashed recently, many were blown away by the sight of Batman and Superman squaring off for the first time. But as we pointed out later, there are plenty of little things to notice that hint at what’s coming in the forthcoming big screen battle.
One of the more surprising reveals in the trailer was what seemed to be confirmation that Batman’s trusty sidekick Robin appears to be dead. The above shot from the trailer has a message, presumably from The Joker, written on Robin’s suit, which appears to be in a display case as a memorial to The Boy Wonder. But fans have been wondering if we’ll actually see Robin in action in some sort of flashback.
The answer appears to be yes, and a new rumor even tells us who might be wearing the suit in the flashback. Find out more about Robin in Batman v Superman after the jump, but beware of spoilers! Read More »
By now you’ve probably seen the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer that premiered at Comic-Con and went online shortly thereafter. Or maybe you’ve seen the slightly shorter theatrical edit of the trailer that was released last week. Either way, you’ve seen some of the destruction of Metropolis repeated as we now see part of the final battle from Man of Steel from the perspective of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, watching as one of his buildings is destroyed.
Now a fan has edited together parts of the scene from Man of Steel with footage from the Batman v. Superman trailer to help paint a slightly more complete image of what we’ll see unfold on the screen next spring. You might have seen a GIF floating around with a side-by-side comparison of the laser vision tearing apart the building, but this is a little different.

Even though we’ll just be seeing The Dark Knight taking on The Man of Steel on the big screen for the first time in March of 2016, there’s a long history of rivalry between Batman and Superman that goes back decades.

In the history of Batman vs Superman, you’ll learn that before the two heroes ever battled, they actually worked together. Watch the video below! Read More »
Sure, the official image of the new Batman v Superman Batmobile is beautiful. The lighting is perfect. Every nook and cranny is there. But what does it look like in the wild? Exactly how wide is it?

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.

After last year’s epic Batman v Superman announcement, everyone expects Warner Bros. to give fans tons of big news at Comic-Con this year. We’d already heard pretty definitively that the next bit film, Justice League directed by Zack Snyder, would hit in 2017. Given the casting of characters such as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, WB and DC seem to be readying other major superheroes for spin offs. Now, a rumored schedule has been released that shows the potential Warner Bros. and DC schedule through 2018. Not on the list? Batman. What is on the list? Shazam, Wonder Woman and a Flash/Green Lantern team up. See the Warner Bros DC schedule below. Read More »
