Jason Momoa: 'Military-style Directors Are The Best'


Jason Momoa

The 36-year-old star has had his fair share of physically demanding roles, having portrayed warrior leader Khal Drogo in HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones, but in addition to acting, he's been given the opportunity to direct commercials for clothing brand Carhartt in recent years.

And when he's on set filming the Carhartt adverts, Momoa makes it a point to not just sit behind the camera - he gets in the trenches with the actors by taking actions like running alongside stuntmen without a coat on in the dead of winter.

"I love getting in with real people and getting them and capturing them in their real lifestyles," he explained to ET Online of his directing style. "They're looking at me, going like, 'Dude, I love you! You're Drogo!' And it's nothing but me. I get to get down there and be with them and inspire them.

Emilia Clarke: 'Jason Momoa Has A Fabulous Manhood'


Emilia Clarke Jason Momoa Michiel Huisman

The actress, who portrays Daenerys Targaryen in the hit fantasy TV series, spent much of the first season of the show naked with her onscreen husband, played by Jason, and the cheeky Brit admits she did catch a glimpse of his penis in between filming.

"I saw his member," she quipped to the May (16) issue of Glamour magazine. "It was covered in a fluffy pink sock. Showing it (onscreen) would make people feel bad. It's too fabulous."

Game of Thrones producers have faced some criticism over the amount of female nudity on the show, an adaptation of George R. R. Martin's book series of the same name, but Emilia has no qualms about the saucy scenes, because she's had her fair share of naked love interests too.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Review

OK

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.

Johnny Depp's wife was recently confirmed as sea queen Mera, portraying the wife of Jason Momoa's underwater superhero Aquaman, and they will unite for the first time in the two-part Justice League films, due to be released in 2017.

Amy, who reprises her Man of Steel role as reporter Lois Lane in the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, hopes her character will be making an appearance in forthcoming blockbusters, because she is a big fan of Amber.

"I love it," Amy gushed to Entertainment Tonight of Amber's casting. "I hope that we all get to work together at some point, because women, sometimes in these films, don't get to actually be on set together at the same time."

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.

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.
