DC's 'Cyborg,' Ray Fisher, didn't know he was getting his own movie

Nobody told Ray Fisher the plan. The 27-year-old had no idea he was set to explode into Hollywood movie stardom, top-lining as the title character in a Cyborg movie set for release in 2020. In fact, producers called the New Jersey-born theater actor on Oct. 15 with the heads-up only hours before Warner Bros. publicly revealed its slate of mega-budget superhero movies tied to the DC Cinematic Universe—Wonder Woman, The Justice League, Suicide Squad, and Shazam among them.

“I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character,” says Fisher, who was hired in March to cameo as Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. “When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.” READ FULL STORY

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.

Critical Mass: Can Greece lightning strike twice in '300: Rise of an Empire'?

Artemesia.jpg

The first 300 was an uncompromising paean to glorious graphic-novel imagery, infused with music-video sensibility and CGI magic. Zack Snyder’s adaptation of Frank Miller’s bloody tale, which chronicles the Spartans’ noble defeat at Thermopylae in 480 B.C., splattered the box office in 2007, grossing $201.6 million and making Gerard Butler’s abs more famous than Gerard Butler. 300: Rise of the Empire is a prequel, sequel, and side-quel to that tale.

Butler’s King Leonidas is dead, but Athens’ general Themistokles (Strike Back‘s Sullivan Stapleton) rallies the fractured Greeks at sea against the invading Persian armada, led by Artemisia, a vengeful Greek orphan played with relish by Eva Green. The pre-se-side-quel explains her defection to the Persians, as well as her stepbrother’s (Rodrigo Santoro) transformation from heir to the throne into the giant golden god Xerxes after his father is killed in battle.

Snyder co-wrote the script, but he handed the camera to Noam Murro, a commercial actor who also directed Smart People. That 2008 dramedy, starring Dennis Quaid and Ellen Page, was short on decapitations and homo-eroticism, but he’s clearly up to speed on both for this assignment. “Murro uses 3-D to up the wow factor even further [than Snyder's razzle-dazzle Spartan bloodfest],” writes EW’s Chris Nashawaty. “There’s so much crimson gore flying off the screen you feel as if you should be wearing a tarp like the folks in the front row of a Gallagher show.”

To paraphrase Leonidas, “This! Is! SPARTA!… Sorta.” Same splashy violence, with a dash of S&M that will surely land Green multiple MTV Movie Award nominations.

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.”

 

Gal Gadot to star as Wonder Woman in 'Batman Vs. Superman'

After decades of waiting in the wings while the boys had all the fun — a frustrating exile best epitomized by a failed television pilot — Wonder Woman is finally set to return in the biggest way imaginable. Gal Gadot, the Israeli model and actress who appeared as Gisele Harrabo in the Fast and Furious franchise, will star as the iconic Amazon in Batman Vs. Superman.

“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe,” said director Zack Snyder, in a statement. “Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”

Gadot, 28, competed in the 2004 Miss Universe pageant as Miss Israel before becoming a professional model/actress. What better qualifies her to play a superhero, though, might be the two years she spent in the Israeli army.
