I know. Marvel’s kicking DC’s @$$, Warners is grapsing desperately to catch up, Zack Snyder is a hollow, talentless hack; all the talking points for why Man of Steel 2 (AKA: Batman Vs Superman) will be handing its lunch money to Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016. But let’s put all that aside for the moment and talk about expectations. Not yours or mine, but the director’s. Snyder is talking about his own ideas, how he struck upon the notion that led to the movie known to all Batman Vs Superman, and he’s also talking about those initial screen tests for the costumes on the holy trinity: Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman. (Sadly, the above image is as close as you’ll get to seeing it for yourself… For nooooooowwwwwwww…) (more…)

- 04-15-14Comics, Film Posted by Mark Poynter


Even with the, much deserved, criticism that Sam Rami’s third foray into the movie world of Spider-Man gathers anytime someone mentions the movie on the Internet, the film did have some amazingly cool stuff in it. The problem was that there was just too much of everything, to many characters, too many villains, too much dancing dousche Peter Parker. Turns out, there was some amazing stuff created for the film that wasn’t used, like this Venom costume. (more…)

With the success of The Lego Movie, Gravity, the buzz surrounding the upcoming Batman & Superman team up film and the news that we will see a new trilogy from the Harry Potter-verse in the future, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara is surely riding high, but he’s not Marvel Studios high, and that may be something that the exec wants to change. (more…)

‘Man of Steel’ Writer David Goyer Says Listening to “Fan Chatter” Is “A Mistake”

- 03-26-14Comics, Film Posted by JT Stevens


Fans are like protective parents sitting at their daughter’s wedding reception; happy to see their child going off on a new adventure, but in a well hidden corner of their minds they’re always secretly convinced that their kid just won’t be as protected and as loved by this new person. They were ours before they were theirs. We will always have that attachment, and so when that day comes that this new person wants to take our kids away, it hits us hard.

I am not allowed to watch Father of the Bride 2 while writing an article ever again. (more…)

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder

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…)

- 01-17-14Comics, Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson


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! You now have nine extra months to fill with baseless claims that Colin Farrell will be playing Jimmy Olsen and that Peter Dinklage and Verne Troyer are competing for the role of Mister Mxyzptlk (my sisters cousin dates the roommate of the the key-grip, he says it is totally happening.)

Jason Momoa Denies Involvement in ‘Batman vs. Superman’

- 01-15-14Comics, Film Posted by James Daniels


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.

Most recently, the name Jason Momoa–of Game of Thrones, Stargate: Atlantis, and the disappointing Conan The Barbarian remake fame–has been tossed around as a possible candidate for Aquaman

This one’s a no–according to the actor himself. (more after the jump) (more…)
