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.

Warner Bros.' 'Batman Vs Superman' Movie Postponed To 2016 Release


Henry Cavill

The new 'Batman vs Superman' will surely be an epic sequel to 2013's 'Man Of Steel' but fans will have to wait a little longer to see the two superheroes come face to face. Plans for the two DC Comic characters to face off was revealed by director Zack Synder at last year's comic-con in July (2013).

Ben Affleck's Batman Debut Held Back Until May 2016


Ben Affleck Henry Cavill Gal Gadot Jason Momoa Zack Snyder

It seems as though we'll have to wait a bit longer to see Ben Affleck in tight spandex pants, sharing screen time with Henry Cavill's equally tight spandex pants. DC were looking to launch their own multi-hero film franchise with the release of the Man of Steel sequel, working under the title of 'Superman vs. Batman,' in July 2015, however a recent announcement from the studio has said we'll have to wait a little longer.

Man of Steel
The first Man of Steel was a hit and the sequel promises to be even bigger

Warner Brothers revealed on Friday (17 Jan.) - via The Hollywood Reporter - that it planned on holding back on the Man of Steel sequel until 6 May, 2016, with the studio's prequel of Peter Pan - titled Pan - replacing the initially planned 17 July, 2015, release date. The studio did not give any reason as to why the films were trading release dates, however has been suggested that Warner Bros. wanted a May release for the superhero film owing to the month's tendency to yield higher box office returns in recent years.

Joaquin Phoenix To Play Lex Luthor In Batman Vs. Superman?


Joaquin Phoenix Henry Cavill Ben Affleck Amy Adams Gal Gadot

Joaquin Phoenix could be the next actor to be announced for the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman movie, scheduled for 2015. The movie will see Henry Cavill's Superman and Ben Affleck's Batman go head-to-head for the first time on film. If the rumour is confirmed, Phoenix will join Cavill and Affleck as well as Amy Adams' Lois Lane and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman.

Joaquin Phoenix
Could Joaquin Phoenix Play Lex Luthor?

Fans of the 39 year-old Walk The Line actor won't be used to seeing Phoenix star in such big-name, huge budget action blockbusters which means the Batman Vs. Superman movie will be an intriguing change of role for the reclusive star. According to sources speaking to Variety, Phoenix is being linked to the movie as the film's antagonist, probably Lex Luthor.

Jason Momoa In Talks For 'Superman Vs Batman' - Are We Looking At A Justice League Movie?


Jason Momoa Superman Batman Zack Snyder Ben Affleck Henry Cavill

More news from the upcoming 'Superman Vs Batman' movie as Jason Momoa is apparently a definite maybe to join the cast.

The 'Conan the Barbarian' star could be set to star as Martian Manhunter in the upcoming film, which currently has no official title but will serve as a sequel to this year's 'Man Of Steel'. The character is one of the superhero members of the DC comic book team, the Justice League of America so if this suggestion is true, it could throw into question an 'Avengers' style movie given that Wonder Woman will also make an appearance in the movie.

Kryptonian supervillain Doomsday from the Batman franchise is another possibility for Momoa; a character known to be the only supervillain to have ever managed to kill Superman - a storyline that appeared in the 1992 comic 'The Death of Superman'.

Superman Is Super-Sexy: Henry Cavill Tops 'Sexiest Man Alive' Poll

Henry Cavill has topped the latest poll by Glamour magazine to determine the '100 Sexiest Men Alive.' The Man of Steel actor took the top spot from four-time winner of the accolade Robert Pattinson, who after four consecutive years of being declared the world's biggest hunk, fell down to number two this year.

Henry Cavill is apparently the sexiest man alive

The Twilight-star has long been a favourite for the magazine when compiling their yearly list of sexiest men, but this year the spandex-wearing DC superhero Cavill proved too dashing to ignore, as he leaped to the top spot. Cavill was chosen as the sexiest man alive by the magazine on the back of his successful turn as Superman in the blockbuster Man of Steel, with his chiselled abs and facial features probably going some way towards securing his spot at the top of the poll too.

Batman Vs. Superman Possible Titles Registered By Warner Bros: Which Sounds Best?


Zack Snyder Henry Cavill Ben Affleck David S. Goyer

Warner Brothers have sparked off plenty of excitement after registering several possible titles for the Man of Steel sequel this week, through the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor, reports Fusible. Currently referred to as Batman Vs. Superman, the movie will see Henry Cavill's Superman go head-to-head with Ben Affleck's Batman.

Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck Will Become The Next Batman.

The Zack Snyder-directed sequel is set to premiere in 2015 but the filmmakers are ensuring that there's sizeable fan interest in the project way, way before the movie is released. During August's Comic-Con panel, Man of Steel actor Harry Lennix read from Frank Miller's graphic novel from a scene in which the caped heroes are locked in battle to set the scene for the new movie: "I want you to remember, Clark. In all the years to come, in all your most private moments, I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you" to which the Superman and Batman logos were projected on to a screen melded together.

Let's All Talk About Jaimie Alexander's Naked Dress [Pictures]


Jaimie Alexander Henry Cavill Ben Affleck Zack Snyder

Jaimie Alexander has become one of this week's most talked-about actresses, less for the rumor that she's preparing to become the next Wonder Woman, and more for her daring choice of outfit to the recent premiere of Thor: The Dark World.

Jaimie AlexanderAll Eyes Were On Jaimie Alexander At The 'Thor: The Dark World' Premiere.

Indeed, Alexander did turn up wearing one of the most revealing dresses we've ever seen: the bold attire showed us the entire length of her body from neck to toe but was kept "modest" by some clever wavy, opaque panelling. The Azzaro outfit has grabbed headlines because Ms. Alexander is very clearly not wearing any underwear. When she turned and walked away from the cameras, we were hit with the back of the dress which gave an equally surprising flash of buttock. See all our photos of Jaimie Alexender's dress here.

Jaimie Alexander Courts Wonder Woman Rumours After Comikaze Speculation


Jaimie Alexander Henry Cavill Ben Affleck Zack Snyder

Jaimie Alexander made sure all eyes were on her at the Thor: The Dark World premiere when she arrived in the most revealing dress we've seen all year. However, everyone's thoughts were mulling over whether Jaimie's Thor character, Lady Sif, was actually going to turn out to be Wonder Woman.

Could Jaimie Alexander's Be The Face Of Wonder Woman?

If it emerges that Sif will be the female lead in the upcoming Superman Vs. Batman movie, then a Wonder Woman transformation will be a sure bet. Otherwise, it could turn out that Wonder Woman has her own movie with Alexander attached.

UPDATE: British pop star Rita Ora has been cast as the adopted sister of Christian Grey, who will now be played by Irish actor Jamie Dornan.

Mystery Over Muscle: Benedict Cumberbatch Beats Gosling And Cavill In Sexiest Movie Star Poll


Benedict Cumberbatch Henry Cavill Ryan Gosling Bradley Cooper Tom Hiddleston Emma Watson

Benedict Cumberbatch has been crowned sexiest movie star in an unlikely turn of events whereby he raced ahead of typical heartthrobs Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper in an Empire poll.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star isn't the most likely sex symbol of Hollywood, but the Brit definitely proved to be best after he was picked by 50,000 more fans than any of the other movie screen hotties. Perhaps the people of the world prefer the mysterious, intelligent look these days - or maybe it's just the accent as 'The Avengers' star Tom Hiddleston came in at second place.

We're surprised at the outcome as 'Man Of Steel' hunk Henry Cavill and 'The Place Beyond the Pines' cutie Ryan Gosling looked like dead certs to receive the honour, with the latter's numerous onscreen romances (we all remember 'The Notebook') and the former's portrayal of Superman, one of the most charming characters ever created.

Kaley Cuoco Johnny Galecki Henry Cavill

Actress Kaley Cuoco and her tennis player boyfriend Ryan Sweeting have topped off their three month romance with the ultimate sign of commitment: an engagement ring. The pair have only been dating since August but have clearly decided that they have eyes for no one else, a representative confirms to Us Weekly.

Kaley Cuoco
It Is Confirmed: Kaley & Ryan Are Engaged!

When Kaley appeared on the set of the movie she's filming, The Wedding Ringer, no one could work out at first whether the enormous diamond ring on her finger was a prop for her character or whether it was for real. However, a source speaking to the magazine reveals that it's the real deal: "It's only been three months but she knows Ryan is the one: when you know, you know," adding "[She's] never felt this way. She knows this is it. And the ring is gorgeous!"

Batman's Commissioner Gordon To Get Spin-Off TV Series: Will Gary Oldman Resume The Role?

Police Commissioner James Gordon from the Batman action comics and films is about to get his own spin-off television series thanks to TV network FOX who won a bidding war to air the new show, reports Deadline.

The series, currently entitled Gotham, has bypassed the tentative pilot stage and has been given a straight-to-series order which shows just how keen the network are for the Warner Bros. produced Batman spin-off. The series will apparently focus on the detective James Gordon's career and "the villains that made Gotham famous" before Batman arrived on the scene.

Now that its all-star yet controversial cast is pretty much in place, Man of Steel 2 has a filming location: Michigan, with possible jaunts to Morocco to film the meteor crash scenes. The sequel is expected to hire around 400 people in the area and is expected to generate $131 million in revenue.

Will Bryan Cranston Play Lex Luthor In New 'Man Of Steel' Film?


Bryan Cranston Henry Cavill Ben Affleck Matt Damon

Bryan Cranston could be about to break even badder, by donning the bald look once more for what would be his most sinister role to date; as Superman's arch nemesis Lex Luthor in the upcoming sequel to Man of Steel. The star of AMC's soon-to-end hit series Breaking Bad is apparently in advanced talks with Warner Bros. to take on one of comic book-land's most iconic villainous roles in the eagerly anticipated Superman sequel.

Cosmic Book News first announced that Cranston had already been cast alongside Henry Cavill and the controversial Batman choice, Ben Affleck, in the upcoming film, with the site adding that Cranston has signed a multi-movie deal that will see him star in cameo-like appearances as the super-villain, describing his role as being like that of Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury in the Marvel movies. The site also alleges that Warner Bros. are only holding out on the announcement because they want to wait for the end of Breaking Bad before they confirm anything.

Ben Affleck has been chosen as the next actor to portray the immortal role of Batman in the upcoming sequel to this year's Superman epic Man of Steel. In a move that frankly no-one saw coming, the Daredevil actor has been picked above a bevy of more obvious candidates, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Josh Brolin, as former Caped Crusader Christian Bale couldn't be forced out of retirement despite a number of enormous offers.

Affleck's appointment was first announced via The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday (22 August), following the release of a statement from execs. at Warner Bros., with the studio's president of creative development and worldwide production, Greg Silverman, issuing a gushing appraisal of Affleck. He said, "We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics' most enduringly popular superheroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some. His outstanding career is a testament to his talent, and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character."

Henry Cavill: "It's 'Essential' Lois Lane Knows Clark Kent As Superman"


Henry Cavill Ryan Gosling Chris Pine Superman

Henry Cavill has given the first hint at the possible plot direction for the Batman vs Superman movie, telling io9.com that Lois Lane must discover Clark Kent's secret for the franchise to remain realistic.

"...if we're trying to base it [on] reality, there's no way that Lois has these direct interactions with Superman, and then doesn't recognize Clark sitting next to her in the office," Cavill quite rightly asserted at Comic-Con, "If she falls in love with Superman, and she's ignoring a guy who looks just like Superman, behaves just like him, and has the same kind of mannerisms and behavior, then what does that say about Lois? I like this relationship. She saves him just as much as he saves her."

Has Cavill just hit the nail on the head? It's an issue that has plagued superhero movies for years. In the modern age of movies, filmmakers simply cannot treat audiences like idiots any longer. Lois Lane knows Clark Kent is Superman. She does. So let's see it play out on screen.

Morrison has written the Batman graphic novels for seven years yet he has decided, following the release (on Wednesday) of his thirteenth novel Batman Incorporated, to move on to Wonder Woman.

Is 'Batman Vs. Superman' The Title Of New DC Comics Movie?


Henry Cavill Christian Bale David S. Goyer Zack Snyder Ryan Gosling

After Zack Snyder's Comic-Con announcement that Batman and Superman would meet on screen for the first time in a 2015 Warner Bros. movie and sequel to 2013's Man of Steel, there's now fresh knowledge from screenwriter David S. Goyer that the production team are mulling over a few specific titles. "We're already in pre-production," Goyer told a Comic-Con panel on Sunday. "(The film) comes out in summer of 2015 ... We're actually not sure whether the title is 'Superman vs. Batman' or 'Batman vs. Superman,' but yes, it's that rematch, that combination, the two guys onscreen and that's happening," as reported by the NY Daily News. The franchise will apparently eventually build up to match Marvel's Avengers movies with DC Comics' Justice League of America team that should also include Wonder Woman, Flash and Aquaman.

Zack Snyder
Zack Snyder Teases Fans With New Movie Concept.

Superman vs. Batman/Batman vs. Superman certainly gets the point across well: two opposing forces fighting it out. But to juxtapose the two characters in such a way seems a bit blunt; not least the question of superiority to whichever superhero's name comes first in the title. Secondly, the 'vs.' part implies the combatants represent antithetical concepts: good vs. evil, light vs. dark, heroes vs. villains, etc.

The X-Men panel certainly had the most impressive cast turnout. Actors from across the X-Men films appeared to promote X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is due to be released in 2014. Ian McKellan flirted with the younger reincarnation of his character Magneto, Michael Fassbender, commenting on Proposition 8, he said "It's great to be back in California, I feel safe here now." He continued by announcing "I'm looking for a husband", cheekily adding "it's great to meet you Michael".

Ryan Gosling, Joseph Gordon-Levitt In Frame To Become New Batman


Ryan Gosling Joseph Gordon-Levitt Christian Bale Brad Pitt Zack Snyder Henry Cavill

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ryan Gosling are leading the race to become the new Batman, following the announcement at Comic-Con that both Superman and the Caped Crusader will unite for the first time on-screen.

Following the success of Man of Steel, it is likely that Henry Cavill will return as Superman, though with Christian Bale announcing his departure from the Batman franchise, the race is on for one of Hollywood's hottest roles.

As it stands, bookmakers Paddy Power have Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the 3/1 favourite to play the role, though many would regard it as an odd choice, given his role as 'Robin' in The Dark Knight Rises.

Zack Snyder Confirms That A Superman & Batman Movie Will Be Happening


Batman Superman Henry Cavill Zack Snyder Christian Bale

One of the biggest rumours to be circulating around this years San Diego Comic-Con International was the potential big screen team up with two of the most famous superheroes of all; Batman and Superman. These rumours were confirmed towards the end of the convention when Man of Steel director Zack Snyder told an eager audience that he and a team of others are currently working on the script for the superhero crossover, with Warner Brothers going on to confirm their involvement in the project shortly after the announcement.

Henry Cavill
Henry Cavill will reprise his role as the Man of Steel

Much to the delight of many of the comic book fans at the San Diego convention, and indeed to the delight of superhero fans the world over, a Batman/Superman crossover film has long be awaited and following the huge success of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy and this years equally impressive Superman re-boot, Man of Steel, an eventual collaboration between the heroes had been expected. In the DC comic universe, the two have teamed up on more than one occasion, beginning with a slew of friendly team-ups in the 1950's to the 70's, before Frank Miller's The Dark Knight comics changed the complexion of their relationship to an antagonistic one where the two heroes barely see eye-to-eye on anything. The big screen hook-up will probably take the latter route.

Many comic-book fans have welcomed the announced as it is a step towards such DC 'Avengers-like' teams as the Justice League. Marvel's superheroes are considerable more integrated with references to the various Avengers in their individual films. A Justice League movie was rumoured to be in production earlier this year, following the success of Superman: Man of Steel, however Cavill confirmed no such film had been mentioned to him. Should the Justice League movie be shot, it would feature a team of superheroes including Superman, Batman, The Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Aquaman.

Dark Night Of Steel? Warner Bros. Explodes Comic Book Nerds' Universe With The Announcement Of A Superman/Batman Collaboration


Henry Cavill Zack Snyder

We recommend you take a breath before reading the following – Batman and Superman will team up in a 2015 movie, directed by Zack Snyder. The long-standing rumor about an upcoming Justice League franchise from Warner Bros. is finally coming to life, with Flash and Justice League films possibly in the works for 2016 and 2017, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The studio confirmed the news during a lengthy, two-and-a-half hour panel in Hall H this Saturday. To be fair, the panel also contained announcements about a number of upcoming projects, including a live action World of Warcraft movie, Godzilla, 300: Rise of an Empire and a freaking Lego movie – all prospects thoroughly exciting for geeks the world over.

Zack Snyder, Man of Steel Premiere
Warner Bros. is once again betting on Snyder for its franchise plans.

We’re still willing to eat our hats, if anyone paid any attention to a word mentioned after the Batman/Superman announcement though. The movie is clearly a response to the success of Marvel’s Avengers and an obvious step towards a full-fledged Justice League film. Unlike Marvel however, Warner Bros. have apparently decided to take an additional step to raise expectations and fan excitement for the big one - a collaboration between two heroes, before unleashing the mayhem that is Justice League on the world. After all, while Man of Steel was a considerable success, it didn’t even come close to the earnings of Iron Man 3, released earlier in the summer. As far as excitement goes, a cross-over between the two most famous superheroes on the planet should probably do it.

Kaley Cuoco Henry Cavill

Kaley Cuoco’s Penny dates a man who worships Superman in the hit U.S show The Big Bang Theory. But now the 27-year-old actress has bagged the closest thing possible to the man with an S on his chest by dating Henry Cavill – the handsome devil who played him in Man of Steel.

Kayley CuocoCuoco has bagged Superman

The pair went public with their romance when they stepped out holding hands to go shopping on Wednesday (July 3). “They are totally hot for each other," a friend told Us Weeky of the couple. Cavill recently ended his 10-month relationship with actress Gina Carano while Cuoco has a long list of ex-boyfriends. She most recently split up with Bret Bollinger, and previous to that, her and Josh "Lazie" Resnik's engagement got cancelled. She also dated her co-star on the Big Bang Theory, Johnny Galecki – who plays her nerdy boyfriend Leonard – for two years, and managed to keep it a secret!

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.

Christian Bale DKR
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."

Henry Cavill: The Justice League Movie "Needs Building Up"


Henry Cavill Batman Superman Christian Bale

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 Is Guy’S Choice Awards’ ‘Guy Of The Year’


Ben Affleck Clint Eastwood Brad Pitt George Clooney Mickey Rourke Matt Damon Jennifer Aniston Jessica Alba Snoop Dogg Vince Vaughn Jimmy Kimmel Henry Cavill Burt Reynolds Jeff Bridges Jake Gyllenhaal Jennifer Garner

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. However, the award’s lack of prestige did not prevent Affleck celebrating backstage with Snoop Dogg, Vince Vaughn and Jimmy Kimmel.

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."

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.

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.

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."

Next year looks set to be a seminal year for movies. Forget sequels and the so-called impending apocalypse; 2013 is all about beginnings as we discover the dubious past of 'The Wizard of Oz' in upcoming sequel 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' and how loveable 'Monsters, Inc.' protagonists Sulley and Mike got qualified to become scarers. Move over 'Breaking Dawn', 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'Skyfall', and let's see what 2013 has in store! There have been plenty of dodgy trailers come out for 2013 releases, but here are ten of the trailers we consider worthy of your time!

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.
