Justice League Teaser Trailer


In the wake of his friend Clark Kent's monumental sacrifice, Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince are determined to recruit the most powerful superheroes on the planet to help them fight a new menace that Lex Luthor predicted was coming to the Earth. They are the intrepid Arthur Curry or Aquaman, king of the sea; the young but lightning-fast Barry Allen, also known as The Flash; and the half-man half-machine known as Victor Stone or Cyborg. Together they must fight an army of parademons that have descended upon them, apparently in search of the Mother Box that transformed Victor Stone into the biomechanical creature he is. They are serving the villainous extra-terrestrial Steppenwolf, who will stop at nothing to get what he wants and take over the world. But as you can probably work out, these heroes have an advantage in that Superman is far from dead as they initially suspected.

Justice League - Comic Con Trailer


Bruce Wayne knows that the Earth is under threat from evil forces much worse than any he's - or any other superhero - has previously seen. To defend the people of Earth, Bruce and Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) decide to hunt down some of the most skilled individuals the planet has to offer, each of these people have a special talent and could play a vital part in saving the world.

As well as the new recruits (who include Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash) Batman also recruits Wonder Woman who previously fought alongside Superman whilst trying to beat Lex Luthor's incredibly strong genetically-engineered creature which also killed Superman. The fate of Superman is unclear but given the end of Batman Vs. Superman it's presumed that Superman will return to life albeit potentially temporarily weakened.

The Justice League is DC Comics’ superhero team and it’s thought that a supervillain called Steppenwolf will be their main target – though it’s sure that Lex Luthor will appear and cause as much trouble as he possibly can.

'Batman V Superman' May Have Smashed The Box Office, But It Hasn't Convinced Critics


Zack Snyder Ben Affleck Henry Cavill Gal Gadot

Probably the most highly anticipated film of the year, 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' predictably stormed the box office with $170.1 million domestic ticket sales and $424.1m global. That's easily superseding critically acclaimed hits like 'Zootopia' and '10 Cloverfield Lane', and yet it continues to be viciously attacked by critics.

Batman v SupermanIt's Batman VS. Superman VS. the critics

As it stands, 'Batman v Superman' starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill is at just 28% on Rotten Tomatoes, actually dropping from 29% in just a day. Both would-be fans and film reviewers were left feeling more than a little disappointed at the distinct lack of any humour, the controversial ending and a lot of over-the-top production. Our own critics, Rich Cline, explained that the main issue lay in the theatrics. 'The problem is that the film is so big and loud that it can't help but feel bloated, especially since so much of what's on screen feels rather vacuous', he said.

Henry Cavill: 'Batman And Superman Have Different Views On Justice'


Henry Cavill Ben Affleck Gal Gadot

Batman and Superman are clashing on the big screen in Dawn of Justice, where Henry Cavill’s character faces off against the debuting Ben Affleck. The pair are arguably the two most recognisable superheroes of all time, but as Cavill explains, they’ve always been on opposite sides of the spectrum.

After starring in the 2006 critical bomb Daredevil, Ben Affleck declared, "I've inoculated myself from ever playing another superhero!"

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Review

Good

After 2013's beefy Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder goes even bigger and darker with this sequel, cross-pollenating Clark Kent's story with flashbacks to the origins of Bruce Wayne and his Dark Knight alter-ego. The problem is that the film is so big and loud that it can't help but feel bloated, especially since so much of what's on screen feels rather vacuous. But it looks amazing and is relentlessly gripping.

After a Bat-origin prologue, the story kicks off with the climactic battle from Man of Steel as seen from the perspective of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), watching his city being destroyed by Superman (Henry Cavill). This further fuels the rage that began when his parents were murdered. And that fire is stoked by the mischievous millionaire Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Meanwhile, Superman/Clark is struggling with how the world is revering him as a god, which is straining his relationship with intrepid reporter Lois (Amy Adams). As these very different vigilante heros head toward a climactic confrontation, Luthor is up to something seriously nefarious. And the ensuing chaos brings another hero into the open, Wonder Woman Diana Prince (Gal Gadot).

While the various plot threads are fascinating, and Snyder maintains a snappy pace, the overall story centres on the fact that Affleck's prickly, bitter Bruce is easily manipulated into doing terrible things, which makes him rather unlikeable. And Cavill's fundamentally good Clark isn't much easier to identify with. Both are also oddly constrained by their costumes and bulked-up physicalities, which leave them unable to move properly. This allows the side characters to steal the show: Adams adds emotion and passion, Eisenberg provides the nutty nastiness, Irons is hilariously cynical as Bruce's butler Alfred, and Fishburne is all bluster as Lois' editor. But in the end, the film belongs to the gorgeous, clear-headed Gadot, instantly making her stand-alone movie the most anticipated superhero project on the horizon.

Actor Henry Cavill has said he’s tired of ‘disrespectful’ female fans hitting on him in front of his girlfriend. The Superman star has been dating 19-year-old college student Tara King since late 2014 and says there’s a "double standard" when it comes to women hitting on men.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Trailer


Every superhero has a dark side and being 100% human, Batman is in doubt over how genuine Superman actually is. After all, Superman is from a different planet and has incredibly natural powers; powers that could easily destroy our world.

As Lex Luther manipulates Batman and Superman into a deeper and deeper war, the duo find that they are pitted against a force that's much more of a present threat than either of the heroes. They are joined by a number of other heroes (including Wonder Woman and The Flash) on a quest to save earth from immediate danger.

Warner Bros. Pictures releases Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in cinemas 25 March 2016.

Next year is taking comic books to a new level. No longer are the lines between heroes and villains solid. Now we're seeing a new side to our favourite caped crusaders; Marvel's Captain America may be bringing about a civil war, but that's nothing compared to the battle between DC's Batman and Superman in 'Dawn Of Justice'.

Henry Cavill in Batman vs SupermanHenry Cavill reprises his role as Clark Kent

The new trailer sees an evermore intensifying hostility between the two vigilantes: on the one side you've got a billionaire human being named Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) who's disillusioned with what Gotham City has become and determined to fight crime in his own way, and on the other you've got an alien journalist named Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) with supernatural powers who's rather more modest when it comes to his own crime-fighting practices.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice - Official Trailer


What happens when two superheroes with vastly differing opinions come head to head? Well, not very well if Lex Luthor has anything to do with it. Superman believes Batman is a vigilante and the civil liberties of the people of Gotham are 'being trampled on' whilst Batman feels Superman's abilities are blown out of proportion by the media and is far from a fan of his superhero outfit.

Lex Luthor has enough power to manipulate this situation to his benefit and pitches both heroes against one another - Son of Krypton versus Bat of Gotham however, when his plan doesn't go exactly to plan he creates a monster to destroy both men - on the verge of destruction, Batman and Superman are joined by Wonder Woman, Aquaman and other superheroes on their quest to save their city from destruction.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder and it's a precursor to The Justice League films - which are also written and directed by Snyder.

Christian Bale Wont Be Doning His Black Cape For The Justice League Film


Christian Bale Christopher Nolan Joseph Gordon-Levitt Henry Cavill

The Dark Knight trilogy has been lauded as the greatest comic book adaption series ever committed to film and has re-written the way Hollywood sees superhero movies, but Christian Bale has decided that when it comes to wearing the famed black mask and cape; three times is enough. The Oscar-winning actor told Entertainment Weekly that although he cherishes the time he had making the movies, he thinks it better to leave things as they are and not tamper with Christopher Nolan's astounding vision.

Bale wont be returning as Batman/Bruce Wayne

"We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That's enough. Let's not get greedy," said the Batman/Bruce Wayne actor during the interview to promote his new film, Out of the Furnace, adding; "Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time and we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying 'We're about to make the third.' We never really knew if we were going to get to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well."

The Justice League (DC's version of Marvel's Avengers) movie will not, speculating from what Henry Cavill said in a recent interview, be in cinemas in the near future.  

Should such a film be made would we see Cavill as Superman saving the world (or possibly the universe) alongside Christian Bale's Batman and Ryan Reynolds's Green Lantern?  They would, of course, be supported by a team of other less known superheroes: Wonder Woman, Martian Man-hunter, Flash and Aquaman.

Box Office: Man Of Steel Turns Into Golden Hen For Warner Bros.


Henry Cavill Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder may just be Warner Bros. golden boy, what with his Man of Steel currently being projected to earn 345.6 million worldwide by the end of the weekend (figures courtesy of Deadline.) The dark retelling of Superman’s story earned an impressive $19 million on Friday. Up until that point, the flick had made a cool 135.6 million over the nine days since its release, adding up to... one happy production company. Read what our own Rich Cline has to say about the film itself.

Looks like the folks at Warner Bros. have stumbled onto a particularly successful strategy – or borrowed one from Marvel, anyway. Rumors have been swirling for the past couple of weeks that Man of Steel is just the first step towards a film reunion of DC Comics’ Justice League superheroes – much like the phenomenally successful Avengers franchise. Of course, while it is no doubt a massive earner, Man of Steel isn’t quite catching up to the record takings of Iron Man 3 a few weeks prior. Just a few days ago, Iron Man crossed the $400 million mark domestically and has to date raked in over $1.2 billion domestically.

Man Of Steel Enjoys 'Super' Opening Weekend; Scoring +$125 Million At Box Office


Henry Cavill Russell Crowe Amy Adams

Man of Steel may not have won everyone over yet, but the latest Superman adaption still went on to show that the man from Krypton still knows how to pull in a crowd, with the new film collecting a whopping $125.1 million at the box office in it's opening weekend. This figure now makes Man of Steel the top grossing debut in the month of June, and should this success continue then it could be on course to draw over a billion dollars in ticket sales.

The phenomenal takings for the film means that it has already come close to recouping it's suspected $225 million budget, and as well as being to top grossing film in June of all time (beating Toy Story 3's 2010 record of $110.3 million), it is also the top grossing film that any of the movie's stars have appeared in. That includes Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne and even Russell Crowe, as well as any films that Henry Cavill or Amy Adams have appeared in or director Zack Snyder has worked on, not bad for a film that was so routinely given a hard time by critics in the lead-up to the actual release.

Right now, the film looks as though it could make up the entirety of it's budget within another week, although there has been a trend lately that has seen audience number plummet after first week sales and Man of Steel could be the latest to adhere to the trend. Eitherway, the early signs will probably be enough to encourage Warner Bros. that they have another hit or their way and, therefore, should determine whether we'll see another Superman film at some point. It should also go some way towards deciding whether a Justice League film should be made, which we hope happens with every fibre of our bodies.

Is The 'Man Of Steel' Really The Superhero Movie We've Been Waiting For?


Henry Cavill Michael Shannon Russell Crowe Amy Adams

The Man of Steel is the latest foray onto the big screen from arguably the comic book-world's biggest star; Superman. There is often a sense of anticipation surrounding a new Superman adaptation whenever one is made, but now it seems as though anticipation levels are in over-drive, and with good reason too, as the latest big screen take on the man who wears his underwear on the outside of his trousers has the potential to be one of the biggest comic book movies to date. However that doesn't necessarily mean that the film will be a hit, as this overview will try to explain why the film could be as big a disappointment as Superman Returns.

Watch The Man Of Steel Trailer

There are two names hanging above Man of Steel that seem to indicate big things for the movie: Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan. Snyder has been lauded since his take on Frank Miller's 300 graphic novel and his work with Supermna is the first time he has had the chance to work with a proper superhero, and he now has the chance to bring something new to the Superman tale, a chance he is sure to take. As tempting as Snyder's name is, the real excitement is surrounding Christopher Nolan, the man who remade Batman and turned comic book movie-making into what it is today, and with the Brit filmaker on hand to write the story for the film, the chance to see a Superman film that retains the dark, seriousness of The Dark Knight shouldn't be one that you would want to pass up too easily. What usually happens when two greats come together though is usually a little underwhelming,a nd with Man of Steel this might be the case again - and the critical reception the film has so far received seems to indicate just that.

What’s The Final Word On Superman ‘Man Of Steel’?


Henry Cavill Russell Crowe Diane Lane Michael Shannon Zack Snyder

Today, Friday 14 June 2013, marks the day when the world falls back in love with Superman as the Man of Steel flies into cinemas across the globe as the man in the bright red underpants has been reinvented for the big screen once again and this time we might have a reboot worthy of rivalling the 1970’s movie series. At least, that’s what the movie execs behind the film are hoping for, however the expectations of movie producers is rarely met by audiences and critics and with Man of Steel, we may have another case of a rather disappointing foray into film by the planet Krypton’s most famous son.

On the whole, the critical response to the film has been mostly lukewarm, and only on occasion has a critics staunchly defended the film and said that it is the summer blockbuster we’ve all been waiting for (since The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises at least). After a week of critical response to the film, it currently holds the rather underwhelming 58% on critic aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, however the film does have a much more appealing 82% approval rate from audience, with a number of people commending the film for being a successful enough spectacle to make the occasional detours into generic blockbuster territory barely discernible. With such a stark contrast between the two percentages, it might leave a few people scratching their heads and wondering whether it will be worth seeing or not, but the only real way to see who has the better opinion of the film would be to go see it yourself.

The overall criticism with the film, it seems, is that the overall spectacle that Zack Snyder has created is too erratic and all-over-the-place, rarely giving the story or development of the characters room to breath. But still, it is a spectacle and one that is still highly entertaining to watch, even if it is pretty hard to follow (think of a smarter version of Transformers).  David Sexton’s review for the London Evening Standard seems to summarize the film pretty competently, saying; “some films make you wish you were 12 again so you could appreciate them as they deserve.”

Man Of Steel Review


Excellent

Superman gets the Dark Knight treatment, as Christopher Nolan offers a much grittier, more intensely personal look at the biggest superhero of them all. It's a flawed film that feels far too violent for its own good, but the pungent story holds us in its grip all the way through, cleverly weaving the character's back-story into a series of emotive flashbacks along with massively thrilling action sequences. And along the way there are resonant ethical dilemmas, family issues and pointed political drama.

Some 30 years ago, scientist Jor-El (Crowe) packed his infant son Kal-El into a pod and sent him to Earth to escape certain doom as the planet Krypton imploded after centuries of ecological abuse. This enrages the viciously tenacious General Zod (Shannon) who spends three decades searching for the child. Meanwhile, Kal-El (Cavill) was raised as Clark in Smallville, Kansas, by the Kents (Lane and Costner), who taught him to keep his powers in check. But when he activates a downed Kryptonian ship, he alerts Zod to his whereabouts. And just as nosey journalist Lois Lane (Adams) learns Clark's secret, Zod arrives to launch a full-on attack.

This is a film about internal conflicts, and everyone has to face up to their own desires and responsibilities. Even Zod, whose dedication to his people means that he is willing to wipe out humanity in order to recreate Krypton on Earth. So Kal-El is caught between protecting his adopted planet and being loyal to his birth species. Lois is struggling with keeping a big secret or reporting the news. All of this provides plenty of gristle for the actors to chew on, even if the dilemmas aren't actually that difficult. And even though they sometimes seem consumed by the elaborate sets and costumes.

Ben Affleck was awarded with the Spike’s Tv ‘Guy of the Year Award’ on Saturday (aired last night). The ceremony took place in Culver City, California. Affleck was presented his antler shaped (nicknamed ‘mantler’) award by fellow Oscar winning actor and director, Clint Eastwood. This is one of many awards; Affleck has received this year including an Oscar for his film Argo.

The Awards were first held in 2007 and previous winners have included Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Mickey Rourke, Maek Wahlberg and Matt Damon. As you’d expect, the awards are hardly female friendly (there is an award named the ‘holy grail of hot’) yet many turned out for the event including Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Alba.

The awards are hardly on par with the Oscars or a Golden Globes – there was a category in 2012 for ‘Hottest Zo(o)e(y)’. The nominations for this particular award were somewhat limited.

Superman 'Man Of Steel' In Danger Of Slipping Into 'Not So Good' Territory


Henry Cavill

Zack Synder's Superman reboot Man of Steel is really good - that's what you've heard right?  It's sort of a fresh reimagining with an impressive new lead actor, right? Well, that's what we were hearing at the start of the week, when its Rotten Tomatoes score was riding high somewhere in the mid 70%'s and all was good with the world. Since then, a handful of seriously unimpressed critics have had their say, leaving Man of Steel surging towards the dreaded 50%'s. It's miles behind Superman Returns, put it that way.

Andrew O'Hehir of Salon.com said, ""Man of Steel" is second-tier and third-generation Chris Nolan-flavored neo-superhero material," while Chris Cabin at Slant wrote, "All its faux-patriotism isn't played for satire, but instead utilized to align the film with an idyllic, unquestioned vision of goodness." The A.V. Club were thinking along the same lines, writing, "By effectively denying Superman his defining traits-his complex relationships to duty and humanity-the movie robs the character of any depth or agency."

One thing pretty much every critic agreed on was the superb addition of Henry Cavill to the Superman story. The British actor - playing the Man of Steel himself - has superhero good lucks and is a seemingly perfect fit. "[Cavill is] a superb choice for someone who needs to convincingly convey innate modesty, occasional confusion and eventual strength," said Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times. Claudia Puig of USA Today agreed, "Henry Cavill has the strapping good looks of the comic icon, and humanity to match his superheroism," he wrote.

'Man Of Steel' Reviews? Out-steeled By 'Superman Return'?


Henry Cavill

The progression of the Superman movie is, well, showing a lack of progression. For all its special effects, high profile stars and big budget marketing, Man of Steel has failed at one thing: outdoing its predecessor.

Click for the Man of Steel International trailer!

That’s right, a quick peek at Rotten Tomatoes – the film review aggregator site – shows us that the critics preferred Superman Returns to Man of Steel, with the former standing at 76% and the latter on a mere 70%. Of course, the scores are close enough to argue that an inflation of expectations has acted in the 2006 film’s favour; Man of Steel comes after a flurry of hugely popular super hero movies, and probably was never going to justify the hype. That’s not to say Henry Cavill’s turn as the caped steel man is awful – “'Man of Steel' is punchy, engaging and fun, even if it slips into a final 45 minutes of explosions and fights during which reason starts to vanish and the science gets muddy,” say Time Out. “It's a thumping, gauntlet-clad fist of a movie, making its impact with brute force, then letting shockwaves reverberate through you,” say The Telegraph.

Man Of Steel Reviews - What Are The Critics Saying?


Henry Cavill Zack Snyder

A 35 year-old graphic novel myth given the CGI reboot on the big screen, the hotly anticipated Man of Steel hits screens this Friday in a long-awaited reinstatement that aims to better Bryan Singer's 2006 chancy incarnation, Superman Returns.

Directed by Zack Snyder, the film will, of course, follow Clark Kent - journalist and alien offspring from Krypton trying to find his place in our world - played by Henry Cavill (Stardust, Immortals) as he goes through the old tale of self-discovery, realising he has special powers but trying to live a normal life working at The Daily Planet, where he encounters Lois Lane (Amy Adams: The Fighter, Sunshine Cleaning).

Cue rebellious villain, General Zod, played by Michael Shannon (Take Shelter, Boardwalk Empire) who plays the Kryptonian general with fire and conviction.

Dylan Sprayberry On Playing A Young Clark Kent In 'Man Of Steel'


Henry Cavill Dylan Sprayberry

Henry Cavill takes the column inches for his tall, dark portrayal of Superman in Man of Steel, but little Dylan Sprayberry provides a vital backdrop to the character, playing a 13-year-old Clark Kent as the film delves even deeper into the blue-spandex kryptonite-hating super hero.

“I think a lot of the percentage of young boys when they are growing up want to be a superhero. I know I did,” explains Sprayberry to MTV. “I would put a towel on my back, run around, and across my couch and try to practice flying and things like that. So I was definitely a fan just of superheroes in general and then you have Superman the ultimate superhero — it was like a dream come true.”

At the tender age of 14, Dylan has an impressive list of credits to his name from Criminal Minds to Glee, as well as starring alongside his 12-year-old sister Ellery Sprayberry in Soccer Mom. This will actually be his sixteenth movie, so we’re expecting a mature performance from the youngster.

Henry Cavill Refused To Acknowledge Pressures Of 'Man Of Steel' [Video]


Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill, the man tasked with portraying a reimagined version of Superman in Zack Synder's new movie Man of Steel, says he refused to get hung up on the pressures of donning the famous suit and potentially letting down a legion of fans. Cavill was the surprise choice to play the superhero in the big-budget movie - likely to form part of a franchise if successful - though he took things firmly in his stride.

"There is that external worldwide pressure of people wanting me to do this and that 'don't mess it up' kind of thing," he explains, "...and I chose not to acknowledge that because that's not going to help me in any way.The pressure I put on myself was far more positive." Cavill clearly boasts the right physique to play the legendary superhero, though the British star hinted that it was his acting talents that probably landed him the role and not his muscles. Brains not Brawn. "It's a story first and there's an emotional being at the centre of it first, he just happens to have these incredible abilities," he says, "You don't balance the two, you be them both. This is what makes this movie different."

New Man On The Scene Henry Cavill On Being The "Man Of Steel"


Henry Cavill

If you’re looking for a new Hollywood heartthrob to fawn over, look no further than Henry Cavill. No, but seriously, the 30-year-old actor, hailing from the island of Jersey in the English channel has quite a list of achievements behind his back, including starring in The Tudors and in Immortals and, with the “Man of Steel” trailer looking as cool as it does, there’s a good chance that this might be a career-defining moment for the actor. As for Cavill’s take on the whole thing, he just wants to do the fans proud.

"This character matters so much to so many people," Cavill says in the June/July issue of Detailsmagazine. "I want to get that right. I want to do it justice. I want people to believe in the character and have faith in the character and kids to grow up wanting to be Superman." He also goes on to recount the experience of learning that he would get to play the iconic character:

Tom Cruise Out, Henry Cavill In? The Man From U.N.C.L.E Cast Takes A Twist


Henry Cavill Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise out Henry Cavill in! That’s the way it appears to be going in the film adaptation of the hit TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E, if Variety are to be believed.

We already know that Tom Cruise has dropped out of the action spy film – we don’t blame him, with another Mission Impossible film and a new franchise in Jack Reacher on his hands, he probably doesn’t need another similar role. However, it would appear that Cavill is going to step into the role, with Variety claiming that he has entered talks with Warner Bros about the film. If he does get involved, he’ll be co-starring alongside Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander in the flick, which will be directed by Guy Ritchie.

Cavill has a good relationship with the studio and had apparently already met for the Hammer role when Cruise had already been negotiations for the lead. He has worked with the studio before, on Superman film Man of Steel, while they’ve also apparently been looking at him for a co-starring role opposite Chris Hemsworth in In the Heart of the Sea. Given that Cavill currently has a pretty open schedule at the moment, it could be that Warner Bros have found their man. The wider success of the cult 1960’s TV adaptation remains to be seen.

New 'Man Of Steel' Trailer Debuts With Less Than A Month Until Release! [Trailer]


Henry Cavill

We all love General Zod mincing around in Superman II back in the 80's, however the Zod who Superman must face in the 2013 re-boot Man Of Steel doesn't look he's going to offer any such comedy - instead he's going to bring pestilence, pain and more than a little mass killing. That's unless unassuming Daily Globe journalist Clark Kent's secret alias of Superman can stop him. 

Watch the Man Of Steel trailer

Zod and his lieutenants are on their way down to planet earth to take vengeance on one of their own kind, who they believe to be hiding on planet Earth. You can guess who that is of course; however this is set during Superman's earlier years, and all he's known is the love of his adopted Texas family. While he knows his super powers, it's only when he finds out that Zod and co will stop at nothing to get at him, even if it means thhe extinction of the planet he's come to call home.

Man Of Steel - International Trailer


The world is facing the biggest global threat that it has ever come across as the Kryptonian villains General Zod and his assistant Faora attack with vengeance in their hearts searching to destroy a lost member of their race. Clark Kent is a journalist for the Daily Planet, adopted as a baby by a loving Kansas family and, though he has always been aware of his extraordinary powers of strength, speed, flight and not to mention intelligence, he has rarely sought to use them preferring to make an attempt to fit in with the rest of human civilisation. However, when his existence threatens the destruction of mankind, he finds he must embrace his true identity and use it to defend the world that has become his home.

As he grows older, however, he becomes an outcast having developed extraordinary superpowers that allow him to accomplish great feats of strength. He attempts to conceal his abilities to fit in as a budding journalist for the Daily Planet, but when a threat of galactic proportions threatens to destroy the Earth, he is forced to venture on a path of heroism and become the planet's saviour.

Henry Cavill as Superman in Man Of SteelHenry Cavill as Superman in Man Of Steel

This summer will see a new Superman movie, Man of Steel, attempt to supersede the Batman Dark Knight trilogy as king of the comic book movie. No mean feat, but judging by the trailer, it’s got a good chance.

We’re not saying there haven’t been any good superhero films since Batman; the Iron Man franchise is strong, as are The Avengers movies, and The Wolverine is showing promise, but The Dark Knight stands as the saviour of the genre, and set the standards to which other films are judged. This epic trailer for Man of Steel takes us on a journey. From Superman’s journey to earth, to that incident on a bus, to saving humankind from the evil that threatens to destroy it. At 3 minutes, this is a ‘make a coffee’ trailer, so do that and watch. And let us know what you think! Either way, with the Superman movies so far being far from satisfactory, this will be a welcome addition to the franchise.

Have Warners Cancelled The 'Justice League' Film Project?


Henry Cavill Christopher Nolan

Everyone getting all excited about the forthcoming Justice League film just hold onto your hats – the movie might not even be getting made.

A recent report by Variety assesses the future of Warners studios and pinpoints that the Henry Cavill-starring Superman film Man Of Steel is the key target for them this year with regards commercial success. This much we already knew; what we didn’t know is the suggestion that the success of that film could impact plans further down the line – namely the production of the Justice League film. If the film tanks it’s unlikely that that film would then happen – disappointing news for all those who’ve reported on rumored directors, actors, plots and characters so vehemently. As Variety points out, Warners hasn’t been able to fully exploit its DC Comic titles that well – Christopher Nolan’s Batman films aside – with Green Lantern most notably struggling at the box office.

The studio has of course been prospering elsewhere, with the likes of the Harry Potter films, The Hobbit, and The Hangover franchise all doing well in recent years, as well as Batman. Yet in turbulent economic times, even the biggest movie companies know that the collapse of their fan base could always be just one bad film around the corner, and so the suggestion that The Justice League is being treated cautiously is a sensible, if not slightly disappointing, decision.

'Man Of Steel''s Henry Cavill Dating Gina Carano


Henry Cavill Gina Carano Zack Snyder

'Man of Steel' star Henry Cavill has begun dating Gina Carano of 'Haywire'. The couple were seen walking arm-in-arm on Thursday 10th January (2013) out of the 18th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards in California, after Gina received a nomination for Best Actress in an Action Movie. While the couple have supposedly been dating since September 2012, 29-year-old Cavill and 30-year-old Carano have now made it official.

Cavill has shot into public eye since being cast as the Krypton-born, Kansas-raised Superman for the Zack Snyder reimagined reboot of the iconic superhero. In 2012, he secretly split up with his professional show jumper fiancé Ellen Whitaker after being together for five years. The news of the split came months afterwards in August of 2012; before he allegedly moved on to start dating Gina Carano.

New Man Of Steel Movie Still Reveals Little About Superman's New Look


Christopher Nolan Henry Cavill

Man of Steel, the newest Superman franchise reboot, is looking pretty good from the latest movie still.

The shot shows Clark Kent, sporting the classic Superman suit and cape and staring into the distance in classic pensive superhero fashion. Unfortunately, as far as costume reveals go, this one isn’t the most exciting. We only get to see Henry Cavill’s back in this one, which is great as far as backs go, but doesn’t really give away much in terms of changes to the suit. Fans don’t get a good look in the trailers that have been released so far either, but they do, at least, give us a feel for the movie itself.

As origin stories go, this one will be pretty dark it seems, going for sleekness and style, which has been the trend these days, but with Christopher Nolan producing, is anyone really surprised. Nolan has set the bar high with The Dark Knight trilogy and there’s no question that comic book geeks and casual fans alike will be going into the theatres with high expectations. The flick will also be competing with Thor 2, which comes out later in 2013. Looks like it’s going to be a good year for superheros.

Man Of Steel Trailer


Clark Kent is a young reporter for the Daily Planet newspaper. He was adopted when he was a child after planetary disaster caused him to be sent down to Earth when his home planet Krypton was destroyed. His adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, brought him up in the rural town of Smallville in Kansas. Throughout his life, his super-abilities isolated him from the rest of the population; he had to make a choice about what kind of man he wanted to become equipped with these powers. Naturally, he transforms himself into the Superman, a new found alter-ego, and uses his astonishing faculties to defend the planet when it comes under attack from an evil force that could prove to be a match for his abilities.

'Man of Steel' is the epic DC comic book movie rebooting the original 'Superman' film series from the 80s. It was directed by the award-winning Zack Snyder ('300', 'Watchmen', 'Sucker Punch') and produced by his wife Deborah Snyder (who co-produced many of his movies) alongside 'The Dark Knight' trilogy producers Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Charles Roven. Based upon characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster in DC Comics and written by David S. Goyer, 'Man of Steel' was filmed mainly in Plano, Illinois with Chicago and Vancouver as backdrops. It is set for UK release on June 14th 2013.

Wait, Has Henry Cavill Signed On For Fifty Shades Of Grey?


Henry Cavill Ryan Gosling Mark Wahlberg Michael De Luca Daniel Craig Ian Somerhalder Michael Fassbender

As Hollywood rolls into awards' season, the head honchos at Universal Pictures and Focus Features are probably busy plotting for 2013 having landed the rights to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, Paramount and Mark Wahlberg's company all placed bids for the rights in one of fiercest movie bidding wars of recent times. Despite the general critical mauling of E.L. James book (though massive sales figures), the movie boasts a pretty impressive team. The Social Network producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti have signed on while Terra Nova's Kelly Marcel will pen the script.

But that's all the boring stuff. We want to know who's playing Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele right? Murmurings around Hollywood suggest Ryan Gosling is pretty much everyone's first choice to play the wealthy protagonist. Universal want Gosling, the producers want Gosling, the fans want Gosling, hell, Gosling probably wants the role himself. Irish bookmaker Paddy Power have the Drive actor as 2/1 favourite, though one man threw a pretty giant spanner into the works this week. He's the third favourite with the bookmaker, he plays Superman in the forthcoming movie Man of Steel. He is Henry Cavill

The 29-year-old British actor - who screen-tested for the role of James Bond before Daniel Craig got the part - discussed Fifty Shades of Grey during a recent interview with Details magazine. When quizzed as to whether he would take the role, Cavill gave a curious answer. Whereas Gosling, Ian Somerhalder and Michael Fassbender have coyly laughed off suggestions of becoming Mr Grey, Cavill said, "Whether that happens, that decision will be made at the time it has to be made. It would be a very different kind of thing than Man of Steel." The interviewer observed that Cavill spoke in "the measured tones of someone who knows his way around a Hollywood gag order."

Imagining James Bond Without Daniel Craig: Who Were The Other 007 Contenders?


After seeing Skyfall this week, Roger Moore described Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes' new James Bond film as "without a doubt... the best Bond there's ever been." The film's crew is seemingly made up entirely of Oscar winners and critical reaction has suggested that Skyfall could be the first 007 movie to win big at the Academy Awards.

Though there were murmurings of discontent when British star Daniel Craig replaced Pierce Brosnan in the secret agent franchise, he's since become a revelation, with many considering him to be the finest Bond yet. His turn in Casino Royale had far more depth than anything Brosnan (or Dalton for that matter) had delivered, leaving Bond geeks squabbling between just three actors as to who was the best Bond ever: Moore, Connery or Craig? Though Quantum of Solace failed to reach the heady critical heights of its predecessor, early reaction suggests Skyfall betters Casino Royale and possibly anything before it. But it all could have been very different, couldn't it? Cast your mind back to 2005, when the protracted process of choosing the new James Bond was reaching its final stages. With Ralph Fiennes unable to commit to the filming schedule of Casino Royale, and Jude Law, Orlando Bloom, Eric Bana and Heath Ledger discounted, producers chose to go ahead and run screen tests on the four 'finalists'. (They had lost the chance of landing Clive Owen after refusing to include gross profit points in his contract) The contenders were Layer Cake star Daniel Craig, ER actor Goran Visnjic, Australian actor Sam Worthington and 22-year-old Henry Cavill, reported Variety. All were relatively inexperienced, though producers were keen for someone considerably younger than the 52-year-old Pierce Brosnan. In fact, writer Paul Haggis told the Hollywood Reporter at the time, "We're trying to reinvent Bond. He's 28 - no Q, no gadgets."

The Count Of Monte Cristo Review


Good

The latest big screen adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' "The Count of Monte Cristo" has such a conspicuously clean Hollywood ending that, even though I've never read the book, I was suspicious and went online to bone up a little before writing this review.

Sure enough, even the central act of revenge that motivates this classic tale of obstinate, meticulous reprisal has been unduly rewritten to make for a cinematic and action-packed climax. The hero has been acquitted of his less honorable acts, the fates of characters have been drastically altered (those that haven't been dropped completely, that is), and comic relief has been shoehorned into the story so crudely you can almost see the impatient studio suit tapping his foot on the set and saying, "Can't this be funnier?"

Yet even with these gross departures, this "Count" has such a flavorful, popcorn-literature air about it that at its worst it still recalls the best of Golden Era swashbuckler flicks.
