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…)
Warner Bros. Hall H Panel has released a new trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that will quite literally knock your damn socks off. While the Star Wars: The Force Awakens footage shown yesterday made a lot of grown men cry with child like joy, this trailer will pump them up like a bloodthirsty MMA crowd. (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 Pan. Henry 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.

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…)
As expected, Warner Bros. has gone ahead and officially released the trailer that was leaked late last night. Now we can get a non-shaking look at Zack Snyder‘s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. (more…)
Suave, witty, handsome agent? Check. Incredibly attractive woman in the mix? Check. No Nonsense Russian agent? Check. Animosity between the two agents that eventually, grudgingly, becomes respect and then friendship? Check. Guns and special gadgets? Check. Crazy 60’s fashion? Check. Yep it’s all there in Guy Richie‘s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. trailer, everything you need to enjoy a movie going experience while you work your way through that super-sized buttered popcorn tub. Why not take a look? (more…)
The Justice League movie may seem a fair way off yet. Its official release date isn’t until 2017, that’s two full years for those of us counting on our fingers, but apparently things are moving along nicely with the script. Perhaps a little too nicely! Why, and how, could this positive script process be a problem? Well, unlike the problems with David S. Goyer‘s rather disappointing script for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, we’re hearing rumors that the main issue with the Justice League script is that it’s suffering from quite the opposite, a maze like overabundance of characters and situations. (more…)
The complaints surrounding the battle between Superman and General Zod at the end of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel have been pretty rife to say the least. During the final confrontation, Superman and Zod battle it out; causing apocalyptic chaos across the city of Metropolis. Hollywood films are fraught with destruction, what makes this any different?, I can here you all asking! Well, fundamentally, it all boils down to the fact that Superman is supposed to be infallible; he has suppose to have a code; a moral duty to prevent individuals from being harmed. Thusly, there doesn’t seem to be any thought for innocent standers-by when Superman throws Zod through a skyscraper, causing a hefty amount of collateral damage. Superman isn’t suppose to kill people, but yet, he does in Man of Steel, and you are about to learn why this is. (more…)
