Though the majority of the world’s current cinematic fervor seems to be directed at the latest iteration of Star Wars (the stunning new trailer didn’t hurt) comic lovers are rejoicing thanks to a new crop of photos and a few juicy plot points from the beginning of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film, slated to release in 2016, marks the start of DC Comics’ push to compete with the all-encompassing Marvel Cinematic Universe. (more…)

Nerds, geeks, super-fans – whatever you’d like to call us, one thing is for sure: there’s going to be a lot of cool stuff for genre fans to check out on TV this Fall.  Information on most of the new (and returning) projects has been moderately available, and it’s always nice when the studios themselves offer up direct access for the fans.  In advance of the new Supergirl TV series coming to prime-time on CBS this Fall, the network has released a 3-minute behind-the-scenes featurette designed to give fans some advance info on the new caped crusader in town.

It seems like the perfect combination: take the guy who directed Snatch, Sherlock Holmes (the Robert Downey Jr. versions), and RocknRolla, and let him make a spy movie that stars Superman and The Lone Ranger.  Oh, and set it in the 1960s, where men were men and you had to rely on your wits and your talent instead of letting technology do your dirty work.  Sounds pretty badass, right?  Well, movie-goer, you’re in luck – because The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is an amazingly-cool movie that’s fun to watch and easy to enjoy.

Empire Magazine recently debuted the cover of its upcoming September 2015 issue, featuring the likes of Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight and Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel as they’ll appear in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. If the cover hasn’t motivated you to drop $10.00 on the mag, Empire has just released a new batch of photos from its multi-page article. The photos give us a better look at The Dark Knight, Supes and a rather hip looking Lex Luthor.  (more…)

The last time I paid $10.00 for a magazine, Olivia Munn was naked in it. Empire Magazine asking that same absorbent price for its September 2015 issue would normally be the equivalent of using a $10.00 bill as toilet paper, but this issue features Batman and Superman on the cover. Paying $10.00 for a magazine in this internet age is still dumb, but any time super heroes grace the cover of a popular national mag, it does stand as victory of nerd cultures dominance over society.

This upcoming issues of Empire Magazine gives us another head-on look at  Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight and Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel as they’ll appear in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. (more…)

Surely by now those of you back home have heard about the insanely long line for San Diego Comic-Con‘s Hall H. It began forming about mid-afternoon yesterday and soon stretched three miles long (according to the convention gossips, that is). Yet–intrepid Nerd Bastards reporter- Rush Urbalejo has managed to grab a spot in the room and will be doing his best to recap today’s announcements. First up, Warner Bros.

Keen to deliver a taste of one of next year’s most eagerly awaited pairings, director Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill take the main stage with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. They are joined by castmates Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot for a sneak peek at the 2016 action adventure that brings the Super Heroes together on the big screen for the very first time. Also from the WB panel will be Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund and Peter himself, Levi Miller, together with director Joe Wright as they discuss and present PanHenry Cavill will then take the stage again with Armie Hammer, a duo with a very different dynamic in this summer’s fresh, über-stylish actioner from filmmaker Guy Ritchie,The Man from U.N.C.L.E., along with fellow stars Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki(more…)

If you’re bored and want a little excitement in your nerdy life, just go down to your local comic shop, stroll in and loudly proclaim that there’s no way that Batman could ever beat Superman, or the Thing is stronger than the Hulk, or cross the DC/Marvel lines with one of my favorites – Who wins in a Namor/Aquaman fight? Bring some snacks, you’re most likely going to have someone take the bait and start a lively discussion. With Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, the old Batman versus Superman fight topic is back on the top of the Who Would Win arguments happening in comic book shops, the back of school buses, and the Internet. Who better to answer the question of why Superman doesn’t just use his incredible powers to take out Batman in a single blow is Henry Cavill, that man who plays Superman himself. (more…)
