Zack Snyder- who recently sat down with Hero Complex to discuss a variety of Batman Vs. Superman topics, such as fan reaction to casting and when shooting will begin- gave something of an explanation of why we are all so confused over the news coming out of the pre-production. “What explanation could he have for Ben Affleck as Batman, or Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor?!” I hear you scream at your computer screen in a violent fit of rage. Well, because the Man of Steel sequel plans of “explode” the universes that we know and love, and create something new entirely. (more…)
Coming to you fresh from that inexhaustible source of dubious nerd news, El Mayimbe of Latino Review.

If you are a fan of the endless speculation and rumor mongering that surrounds Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel (commonly but not officially known as Batman vs Superman ) boy are you in for a treat!

First there were rumors that the sequel to Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel would co-star Batman: Confirmed. Then we heard Wonder Woman would be joining the party: Confirmed. Jon Stewart’s Green Lantern–perhaps portrayed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson–is apparently a possibility. But no one has confirmed or denied anything yet.

There’s been quite a bit of backlash over the Batman Vs. Superman movie, and although nothing could come close to Ben Affleck being cast as the new Dark Knight, there’s been quite a bit of unrest amongst fans over Gal Gadot being cast as Wonder Woman in the Man of Steel sequel.
