Last week, we had some Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rumors regarding Lex Luthor’s hairline and attitude.  Today, more Batman v Superman rumors have gone online covering not only Luthor but also more details about Wonder Woman, her costume, weapons, how she’ll be integrated into the story, plus a little bit of  background on this latest big-screen interpretation of Batman.  Leading off with Luthor, JoBlo reports that this is a familiar Lex Luthor: an egomaniac who can’t stand the notion that there’s someone out there more powerful than him.  He then tries to persuade people to dislike Superman, and is moderately successful.  Some people see Superman as a savior, and others see him as “the ultimate threat”.  And if you’re wondering about the hair, JoBlo says Lex Luthor starts out with long, red hair.

Hit the jump for more Batman v Superman rumors including Wonder Woman’s costume, her weapons, how she factors into the plot, and miscellaneous Batman details.  The film stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, and Laurence FishburneBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens May 6, 2016.

In relation to Marvel Studios’ well-oiled machine, much has been made of the fact that Warner Bros. has yet to roll out a cohesive superhero universe making use of its extensive DC Comics archives.  After last year’s Man of Steel though, the studio appears to have gotten themselves together.  Instead of another Superman sequel, Zack Snyder is gearing up to direct Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for a July 2016 release, which he will shoot back-to-back with a full-blown Justice League movie.  However, a new report claims to reveal the studio’s tentative schedule for its DC properties, including a 2017 release date for Justice League, a Wonder Woman movie, and a The Flash/Green Lantern team-up film.  More after the jump.

First Look at Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet from BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

Earlier this week, director Zack Snyder revealed a peek at the Batmobile for Batman vs. Superman (unofficial title) before unveiling Ben Affleck as Batman standing next to the front of his famous vehicle.  Today, we’re getting a look at Wonder Woman’s invisible jet.  I know Snyder has his fans, but I am so sick and tired of his empty visuals.  Yet again, it’s style over substance.  And I’m not even a die-hard Wonder Woman fan, so I can only imagine how those people must feel.  It’s bullshit that that the design isn’t even close to what it looks like in the comics.  Maybe it would have been better if they had her fly under her own power so we don’t have to look at this ugly thing.

Zack Snyder Talks BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN; Gives Thoughts on Seeing Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman Together for the First Time

Even though Zack Snyder currently can’t really say anything incredibly substantial about Batman vs. Superman (unofficial title), he can talk around it, and that’s close enough for most fanboys.  In a recent interview with Forbes, Snyder gave his thoughts on both characters and seeing them together on screen.  Personally, the most disconcerting part of the interview is when the interviewer says, “Superman is kind of the ideal of what we’d like to be, and Batman is kind of rooted in what we are. He reflects what we are, so to speak,” and Snyder replies, “Oh, 100%. And I think that’s at the heart of that, you know.”  I could not disagree more with that response.  I think an “idealist versus pragmatist” approach is understandable, but please don’t lump me in with a billionaire who treats a crime-ridden city like a playground so he can constantly work though his childhood trauma.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR Blu-ray Review

If you simply can’t wait to see DC’s most famous superheroes team up to do battle on the big screen, then you’ll want to check out Justice League: War, the latest effort from Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment.  The animated feature adaptation of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s 2011 “Justice League: Origin” storyline finds the famous heroes battling crime separately before they officially team up.  When a powerful new threat invades the Earth, the heroes must put aside their differences in order to work together and save the world.  It’s a worthy addition to the series of animated features, and a great place-holder between live-action movies.

Featuring the voices of Alan Tudyk, Jason O’Mara, Michelle Monaghan, Christopher Gorham, Justin Kirk, Shemar Moore, and Sean Astin, Justice League: War is now available on Blu-ray.  Hit the jump for my review.

For the third year in a row I find myself looking through previous Top 5 installments on the last Saturday of the year, trying to whittle the hundreds of stories I’ve covered in the past 52 weeks down to the five that I find most interesting, important, popular, etc. At its most basic, this is just an exercise of further reducing a list that I’ve been trimming and prepping on a weekly basis all year long. That’s likely the most boring/tedious way of looking at it, but true nonetheless.

At its best, I see the “End of the Year Edition” as a Collider time capsule of sorts. A snapshot that is in no way comprehensive enough to properly acknowledge the amount of time, work, thought, travel, money, etc. that goes into making this site what it is. And yet, representative enough of our content as a whole that someone who stumbles upon it can see what we were trying to accomplish: to cover the things that we’re passionate about in the most interesting and sincere way possible and to completely and utterly dominate the Internet by way of Star Wars and superhero movie casting rumors. Keep reading for the five stories/pieces of content that in many ways defined our 2013.

We’re over a year and a half away from seeing Batman vs. Superman on the big screen, but Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) is already fielding questions about her role of Wonder Woman in the superhero sequel.  In a recent interview with Israel’s entertainment show, Good Evening with Guy Pines, Gadot talked about learning she had won the part, fan criticism about her physicality, and the training regimen she’s about to take on.

Also starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Amy Adams, Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman is due out July 15, 2015.  Hit the jump to see what Gadot had to say.

Adrianne Palicki Looks Back at Starring in the Failed WONDER WOMAN Pilot; Will Return to Play Lady Jaye in G.I. JOE 3

A couple years ago, David E. Kelley (The Practice) attempted to launch a Wonder Woman series for NBC, and what we saw looked unimpressive to say the least, although two people who saw the pilot were mixed on the result.  All I can say is that the costume looked laughably cheap (NBC changed it after the negative reaction from fans), and it didn’t bode well for the series. However, Adrianne Palicki wasn’t a terrible choice for the role at least in terms of her physique and ability to do stunts.  In a recent interview, Palicki talked about the chance to play the famous superhero, and why she’s a little grateful the show didn’t get picked up.

TOP 5: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Trailer, OUT OF THE FURNACE, Gal Gadot to Play Wonder Woman in BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN, Sundance 2014, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

This week in Blu-ray/DVD recommendations I confidently offer up writer/director Maggie Carey‘s The To Do List for your consideration. Starring Aubrey Plaza, Johnny Simmons, Bill Hader, and many more, The To Do List delivers consistent laughs and, at times, an all too realistic depiction of the awkwardness of “first times”. As an added bonus, I imagine viewers who grew up in the 90′s will appreciate the fashion and accessory induced nostalgia the film provides (the sound of a Trapper Keeper ripping open is music to my ears). Moreover, having a story like this told from a female perspective is refreshing to say the least. I don’t want to oversell it as being a comedic game-changer but The To Do List is a solid feature debut for Carey and Plaza is excellent as the overachieving lead who approaches sexual experience the only way she knows how: like it’s a class final that’s worth 75% of your overall grade.

Home entertainment recommendations aside, this week’s Top 5 highlights the first trailer for director Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Out of the Furnace interviews with Christian Bale and more, Gal Gadot landing the role of Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman, Sundance 2014 announcing its competition lineup along with a slew of first/new images from many of the entries, and the possibility of X-Men: Apocalypse hitting theaters in May 2016. For more, check out a brief recap and link to each of the above after the jump.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have our Wonder Woman.  It’s been clear that Warner Bros. is ramping up its DC presence in the upcoming Man of Steel follow-up Batman vs. Superman, and rumors have swirled that Wonder Woman would be introduced in the film along with Ben Affleck’s Batman and a few other comics characters.  A report surfaced last month that Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion), Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), and Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) were auditioning for the female lead in director Zack Snyder’s upcoming film, but the nature of the role was being kept under wraps.  Well now not only do we know which actress won the role, but also that the identity of the character is indeed Wonder Woman.  Hit the jump for more.

Earlier today, we reported that Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion) was rumored to have screen-tested for the role of Wonder Woman.  Now, we’re getting some additional reports that say the same, but also include Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) and Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) in the mix.  It’s important to note that this trio has or will test for the female lead in Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman.  While some are quick to jump to the conclusion that the role is that of Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, it’s equally possible that it will end up being the love interest for Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), not that those two characters must be mutually exclusive.  Hit the jump for more.

BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Rumors: Dick Grayson (aka Nightwing) Will Be in the Movie; Olga Kurylenko Tested for Wonder Woman

When Batman vs. Superman was announced at Comic-Con this past summer, the crowd went absolutely nuts.  For the first time, DC Comic’s most popular superheroes would share the screen in a blockbuster picture.  That is legitimate cause to be excited.  But in the months since then, such a pairing is no longer good enough.  A couple weeks ago, Warner Bros.’ Greg Silverman gave the slightest of indications that Wonder Woman could be in the movie.  And apparently, that’s still not enough for sites that are so desperate for scoops they’ll take whatever information they can regardless of its proximity to the truth.

Warner Bros. has been one of the braver studios when it comes to taking chances on risky projects.  It’s paid off in a big way lately with Gravity, and they also distributed Pacific Rim as well as last year’s Cloud Atlas.  The studio can afford to take these risks because they’ve got some heavy hitters in the franchise department, most notably their DC superheroes.  Superman got back on his feet and in the sky with Man of Steel, and Batman will be returning for 2015′s Batman vs. Superman.  In addition to bringing back the Dark Knight, the studio has also managed to revive Harry Potter with the spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. reiterated its pledge to make a Wonder Woman movie.  Arguably the most famous female superhero, the Amazonian princess still hasn’t gotten a feature film, and I doubt it will happen any time soon if Warners is still waffling between telling her story in movies or on TV.  But they have fielded pitches from creative folk, and last night at an event for the Blu-ray/DVD release of The Heat, director Paul Feig revealed he recently gave the studio his idea for what a Wonder Woman movie should be.
