Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman is not messing around

WONDER-WOMAN-SNYDER

If you had to use one word to describe the first official photo of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, it would probably be ‘fierce.’ Another would be ‘warrior.’ Or ‘demigod.’ Although there’s no reason you couldn’t string them all together and say that Diana of Themyscira sure does look like one Fierce Warrior Demigod, because that is accurate too.

Director Zack Snyder tweeted out the photo this morning during the Warner Bros. movie panel at San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H Saturday morning.Fans got a glimpse at a brief bit of footage from Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, along with several other upcoming WB films like Mad Max.

Zack Snyder interview reveals new 'Batman v Superman' photo

Batman is sharing the screen with Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but that doesn’t exactly mean they’re going head to head.

In an interview with USA Today, director Zack Snyder revealed that the “v” in the film’s title means more than you might think. In fact, the Man of Steel director purposefully used that instead of “vs.” “to keep it from being a straight ‘versus’ movie, even in the most subtle way.”

Less subtly, Warner Bros. tweeted a new image of Henry Cavill (see above), who returns to play Superman after working with Snyder in Man of Steel, to accompany the photo’s simultaneous debut on USA Today‘s website. (Superman’s look hasn’t changed.) And unlike our previous speculation that Batman’s top billing in Dawn of Justice‘s title might signal a big role for Bruce Wayne, Snyder revealed that the caped crusader was actually added to the movie second.

Batman gets top billing in Superman's sequel, 'Dawn of Justice'

Age before beauty.

At least that’s part of the thinking at Warner Bros. when it comes to its Man of Steel sequel, which includes Ben Affleck as Batman. The studio announced today that the 2016 blockbuster will be officially titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The subtitle, “Dawn of Justice,” is a not so subtle nod at the Justice League movie that Warner Bros. and DC Comics already have on the calendar for 2018. (Or maybe it’s a sly reference to director Zach Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead…) READ FULL STORY

Zack Snyder tweets picture of Ben Affleck's Batman costume

Just one day after tweeting an image of the new Batmobile, Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder has posted a new image from the set of his upcoming Man of Steel sequel/Batman reboot/Justice League pilot/Aquaman sidequel. The photo shows a shadowy image of the new Batman costume, as worn by a human being who appears to be Ben Affleck. I say “appears to be” because the only exposed body part you can really see is the chin — although local Affleck scholar Jeff Labrecque insists that it is definitely Affleck chin: READ FULL STORY

Superman-Batman movie pushed to 2016, nine months later than first planned

Warner Bros. announced on Friday its decision to move the release of Zack Snyder’s untitled Batman-Superman movie to May 6, 2016. The studio said their move allows “the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story.” This follows word that the production starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck  had been pushed to begin in the second quarter of 2014 rather than its originally planned winter start date. In their statement, Warner Bros. also took the opportunity to announce that Joe Wright’s live-action untitled Peter Pan adventure would now slide into the July 17, 2015 release date.

Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. President of Domestic Distribution, went on to say “We know that there is already great anticipation building for the next Super Hero film from Zack Snyder, and we are equally eager to see what he has in store for Superman and Batman as they share the big screen for the first time ever. The summer release corridor is also perfect for Joe Wright’s ambitious new Peter Pan adventure, reimagining the ageless story of the beloved and forever-young hero for audiences worldwide.”

 

Ben Affleck on the extended cut of 'Argo,' and the movie role he thinks is even more intimidating than Batman

argo-best-picture.jpg

Last year at this time, Argo had just surpassed the $100 million mark at the box-office on its way to winning three Oscars, including the statue for Best Picture. Ben Affleck’s true Hollywood story of the CIA’s risky mission to rescue six U.S. diplomats from the angry hive of the Iranian Islamic revolution in 1979 was bold, confident filmmaking, and his emergence as a sentimental favorite during awards season was as delightful as it was unlikely, considering the many ups and downs of his career. Fifteen years after Good Will Hunting, 10 years after Gigli, and five years after becoming an acclaimed director with Gone Baby Gone, Affleck’s crowning achievement established him as a master Filmmaker, with a capital F, in league with other actors who became esteemed directors, like Eastwood, Redford, and Beatty.

Affleck, fortunately, hasn’t given up acting. In fact, it’s well known that he’ll spend 2014 filming two of Hollywood’s most-anticipated movies: David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, and Zack Snyder’s Batman Vs. Superman. (Psst, he plays Batman.) But before he embarked on those projects, Affleck wanted to revisit Argo one last time. In the new extended edition Blu-ray, in stores today, he reinserted nine minutes of footage that revolve around his character’s family life, fulfilling a promise he made to a now-famous actor whose scenes had been left mostly on the cutting-room floor.

Below, in addition to a behind-the-scenes video from the new Blu-ray, Affleck discusses the cut scenes, why he’s not worried about the fans who erupted online when he was cast as the new Batman, and the one character that he considers even more daunting than the caped crusader. READ FULL STORY

'Batman vs. Superman' brings superhero rivalry to the football field

The last time football was featured in a Batman movie, a pro stadium was being decimated by deadly explosions. But Gotham football fans are apparently resilient.

Tomorrow, in East Los Angeles, director Zack Snyder is filming scenes for Batman vs. Superman during a college football game between East Los Angeles College and Victor Valley College. Though the community colleges aren’t exactly the sort of traditional football factories that pop up on SportsCenter, the teams that will square off at halftime are comic-book powerhouses: Gotham City University versus Metropolis State University.

Batman-News.com even has the team’s uniforms (see above), with both squads wearing colors that reflect the styles of their hometown hero. Gotham City University’s black and gold unis even echo those of their ill-fated professional franchise, the Gotham City Rogues. Nicknames and mascots for the college teams haven’t been revealed, but can we get some support for the Gotham City Knights and the Metropolis State Crusaders?

Snyder plans to spend 20 minutes filming the two imaginary teams squaring off at the 20,000-capacity Weingart Stadium, which will stand in for Gotham’s home field. It’s safe to assume that the cities’ ultimate bragging rights in this upcoming blockbuster won’t be determined by what happens on the field — but it can’t hurt to deliver a blow for civic pride.

See Christian Bale's 'Batman Begins' audition... opposite Amy Adams?

There are a lot of bat-goodies contained within the 90 minutes of new special features on Warner Bros.’s new Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray. (Try saying that three times fast.) But this clip could very well be the collection’s coolest moment. It’s pre-Batman Christian Bale! Doing a screen test for Batman Begins! Wearing Val Kilmer’s old batsuit from Batman Forever. And acting opposite… Amy Adams! (Don’t get too glum thinking about what might have been, Katie Holmes haters — she was only there as a favor to the movie’s casting director.)

As the video proves, Bale’s rumbly batvoice was there from the very beginning — before the beginning, even. “He had decided that Batman had to have a different voice… that he had to put on a voice,” director/co-writer Christopher Nolan explains over footage of the screen test.

And evidently, that simple acting choice was a major factor in Bale’s ultimate casting. READ FULL STORY
