We got some solid reports claiming that Jason Momoa was set to take the role of Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice back in June, but now that Warner Bros. has confirmed it via that enormous release date announcement, Momoa himself is finally allowed to talk about it.

While at Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta, Momoa discussed the super secretive casting process, why he’s so pumped to take on the role and how he’s prepping for the 2018 Aquaman solo movie.  On top of that, Momoa also confirm that the character will appear in the first Justice League movie.  Hit the jump for more.

You might have noticed some Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice news floating around courtesy of an extra who chose to break his signed confidentiality agreement today, but now we’ve finally got a more concrete report that doesn’t call for Warner Bros. to file lawsuit.

Apparently multiple sources have confirmed that Jena Malone is indeed in the film, but there’s no word on whether or not she’s actually portraying a female version of Batman’s sidekick, Robin.  Hit the jump for more on Malone’s involvement in the film.  Batman v Superman is due in theaters on March 25, 2016 and also stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons.

Zack Snyder will direct both of them, which the press release refers to as Justice League Part One and Justice League Part Two.  On top of that, it also confirms that Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams will all reprise their roles for Justice League Part One, but makes no mention of their involvement in Justice League Part Two.  Hit the jump for more.

The STAR WARS: EPISODE VII and BATMAN V SUPERMAN War Continues with a First Official Look at the Return of the Millennium Falcon

Directors J.J. Abrams and Zack Snyder have been going back-and-forth online by parodying their respective blockbusters, Star Wars: Episode VII and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Snyder struck the most recent blow by showing a Stormtrooper getting arrested for hi-jacking Batman’s ride.  Abrams has retorted in a way that will be tough to top.  He’s stolen the Batmobile back and placed it on the underside of the Millennium Falcon.  And this isn’t just a cutesy little model.  This is a real shot of the Millennium Falcon with a huge pan and everything.

Hit the jump to check out the Star Wars: Episode VII Millennium Falcon video featuring the Batmobile.  It’s now your move, Mr. Snyder.  May I suggest putting Batman behind the wheel of a Star Destroyer?  Star Wars: Episode VII opens December 18, 2015.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.

New BATMAN V SUPERMAN Batmobile Image Charges a Stormtrooper with Grand Theft Auto

Filmmaker Zack Snyder continues to make excellent use of social media when it comes to teasing fans, with the latest being a new Batman v Superman Batmobile image with yet another Star Wars tie-in.  This is the third such Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Star Wars mash-up, as Snyder previously tweeted a photo of Henry Cavill dressed as a Jedi and another photo of Batman hanging out with R2-D2.  This new image offers another look at Ben Affleck’s formidable-looking Batmobile, as a Stormtrooper is seen being arrested by GCPD for the theft of said vehicle.  It’s clearly a joke, but Snyder seems to be laying on the Star Wars love pretty thick.  Is he simply a big fan, or could those long-ago rumors of a Snyder-helmed Star Wars spinoff have some truth to them?  Whatever the case, the filmmaker’s tied up in the DC universe for the next few years as he’s poised to shoot Justice League directly after BvS.

We posted set photos of the Batman v Superman Batmobile earlier today.   They were cool and all, but nothing compared to what the director and still photographer of the movie has to offer.  Zack Snyder took it upon himself to tweet out a new official image of the Batmobile with the caption: “Here’s a real picture of the #Batmobile.”

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Set Pictures Detail the New Batmobile

It’s been an entire week without any kind of photos from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so how about we blow the dust off with a reveal of Bruce Wayne’s new Batmobile?  Okay then.  To me this thing looks like it was informed both by Christopher Nolan’s films and by the more classic Batmobile designs.  It’s got the militaristic look and jagged edges from the Nolan-verse, but the shape itself leans ever-so-slightly back to the old school design in the way it tapers off in the middle.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The Zack Snyder directed film stars Ben Affleck, Henry CavillGal GadotJesse EisenbergAmy AdamsLaurence FishburneJason MomoaHolly HunterScoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on May 6, 2016.

We got a look at Ben Affleck in Bruce Wayne form a few weeks ago so how about some shots of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent to go along with them?  As long as Zack Snyder’s busy shooting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice out in public, bystanders will be snapping photos of the action and this time around, they caught some material that involves Clark Kent having a discussion with a woman in front of the Gotham City jail.

Jesse Eisenberg Talks About the Psychology of Lex Luthor in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

When Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel (perhaps it’s actually a spinoff at this point considering how many new characters there are) Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there was a lot of head scratching.  But I actually can totally see him in the role.  Leaving aside the completely arbitrary question of whether the character will have hair or not, Eisenberg has an intelligence that reads well onscreen not to mention the fact that he can really play entitled and angry.  Eisenberg recently spoke about the film and, while he couldn’t say much, what he did say makes me more confident than ever that he’s the right choice for the role.  In fact, I think his casting could potentially be the most interesting thing about the movie.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently filming in Detroit under the direction of Zack Snyder for a March 2016 release.  The film also stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams and Jason Momoa.  Hit the jump to see what Eisenberg has to say about playing Lex Luthor.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Set Image Reveals a Different Look at Henry Cavill’s New Costume

Judging by some of the reaction to this picture, it appears as though there are some slight shifts away from the established Man of Steel look in Henry Cavill‘s costume for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Not that I can tell.  I’ve seen Man of Steel exactly once and don’t really plan on seeing it again to see if I can spot some minute differences.  This set image (obviously) adds more color to the costume than the official still from last month, and I suppose it’s interesting to see the painted-on muscle patterns in the light of day.  But, on the whole, I think this is a less interesting development than the picture of Scoot McNairy as (potentially) The Flash.

When you sign on to play a superhero, especially someone as iconic as Batman, you’re going to undergo quite a bit of scrutiny.  Warner Bros. was well aware of it and the studio wanted to make sure Ben Affleck was well aware of it before taking the role as well.  However, clearly that didn’t stop Affleck from joining the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as the new Bruce Wayne/Batman.

While discussing his decision to take the part, Affleck highlighted that if he didn’t think he could do it, he never would have signed on in the first place.  Hit the jump for more of Affleck’s thoughts on being the new Batman.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016 and also stars Henry CavillGal GadotJesse EisenbergAmy AdamsLaurence FishburneJason MomoaHolly HunterScoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons.

Could the JUSTICE LEAGUE Release Date Come Soon After BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE?

by     Posted 78 days ago

The choice to uproot Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from its original May 6, 2016 date and put it back down in the March 25, 2016 slot could be a smart play.  Going up against Captain America 3 wouldn’t have been good for either movie, and in 2012, The Hunger Games proved that March could be a lucrative spot.  However, Warner Bros. also made another big release date announcement that’s a far riskier move – it announced dates for nine untitled DC films, essentially trying to set up a cinematic universe akin to what Marvel’s got going on right now.

So far, minus Batman v Superman, we don’t know much about what DC and Warner Bros. have coming up and how they’re planning to pull this off, but those details might emerge sooner than you think.  In fact, there’s even a chance we’ll get the Justice League release date sooner, too!  Hit the jump for more.

Zack Snyder Defends Aquaman’s Role in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

I’ve defended Aquaman in the past even though I understand why fans think he’s kind of silly.  Even though he usually gets to stand beside top-tier superheroes, his powers, which includes talking to marine life, seem weak in comparison.  Furthermore, his inclusion in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice seems like a ham-fisted attempt to cram him into a film that already looks overstuffed.

The DJs on Detroit’s 97.1 The Ticket were also wondering why Aquaman is going to be in the film, and director Zack Snyder called in with an answer.  Hit the jump for more on why Snyder thinks that Aquaman is a worthy addition to the cast.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Release Date Moved Up to March 25, 2016; WB Dates 9 Untitled DC Films and 2 Event Movies

batman-v-superman-dawn-of-justice-release-date

The Marvel/DC release date showdown has come to an end, and it appears that Marvel has come away the victor.  Marvel Studios staked out the May 6, 2016 weekend a while ago for an “Untitled Marvel Movie,” but when Warner Bros. went looking for a new release date for its Man of Steel follow-up, it decided to plant its flag on May 6, 2016 as well with the thinking that Marvel would subsequently move.  Except Marvel didn’t move, it doubled down by announcing that Captain America 3 would be its May 2016 movie, which was certainly a big deal coming off the stellar opening weekend for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

And so now Warner Bros. has flinched, but instead of delving deeper into the summer, the studio will be trying to kickstart the blockbuster season incredibly early by setting the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice release date on March 25, 2016.  If that wasn’t enough, Warner Bros. has announced release dates for 9 untitled DC films and 2 “event films”.  More after the jump.

Zack Snyder Continues Trolling the Internet with New Batman STAR WARS Image

While director Zack Snyder is no doubt extremely busy while he’s in the midst of production on the highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it appears that he still has time to toy with the internet.  A couple of weeks ago during Comic-Con, Snyder put together an image of Henry Cavill dressed like a Jedi and shared it on Twitter with the caption “SuperJedi”.  The pic was presumably just Snyder having some fun, as all of the Batman v Superman actors have to wear those robes to set to avoid being snapped by onlookers; Snyder apparently thought Cavill looked a bit like a Jedi.  It appears that Snyder’s Star Wars fascination isn’t over yet, though, as today he went ahead and put up a Batman Star Wars image captioned “Batman & R2bin”.
