Are These Superman’s New Duds for ‘Dawn of Justice?’

- 05-28-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

batman_vs_superman

So let’s talk about Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Yes, the title is ludicrous, and yeah Man of Steel was below par in terms of what we’ve come to expect out of a superhero movie, but let’s skip all that and get to the new stuff. Now we already know what Batman is going to look like in the film played by Ben Affleck, and many have noted the comic book connections between the Batfleck suit and its variations on the printed page. But what about Superman’s clothes? Does the Last Son of Krypton, and his portrayer Henry Cavill, get some new duds for the new movie? Does the below photo offer a sneak peak? (more…)

The “Legofication” of the world continues, as Warner Bros. & TT Games released an announcement trailer for Lego Batman III: Beyond Gotham today. Pretty soon we’re going to be able to play all of our favorite characters in Lego form. I personally cannot wait for the Lego version of David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers, just so I can see what Lego gynecological instruments look like.  (more…)

So the Official Subtitle of ‘Batman v. Superman’ is…

DAWN OF JUSTICE!

You know, I wasn’t sure how to feel about this official subtitle when I saw the logo pop up in my Twitter feed today (though the rest of Twitter has seemingly decided that the subtitle somehow spells doom for the movie). So, instead of rushing to snap judgements, I thought I’d call up one of my top sources…Batman himself. In this EXCLUSIVE (WORLD STAR!) interview, I get good ol’ Bruce Wayne’s feelings on the new title to his upcoming movie.

The Rap Titan Throw Down You’ve Always Wanted to See: Goku vs. Superman

Fans can be weird sometimes.

While certainly not as disturbing as erotic 30 Rock fan fiction, it’s always kind of fascinating to see just how far the goofiest lovers of certain properties will take their adoration. Today, we get to see the strangest (and perhaps whitest) rap battle ever committed in the service of nerdom. Yes, it’s the rhyme-spitting, high noon showdown between two similarly dressed (yet rhythmically opposite) rappers no one saw coming: Superman and Dragon Ball’s Kakarrot. Who thought watching these two throw down like Rabbit and Poppa Doc would be a good idea? Who cares?

Jesse Eisenberg Talks Playing Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s ‘Batman vs. Superman’

- 05-13-14Comics, Film Posted by Jacob Knight

Eisenberg:Luthor

Upon the initial announcement of his casting as the iconic, bald baddie Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder’s upcoming titanic superhero collision, there was a mixture of head-scratching and groans that seemed to fill the Internet. But now, while touring with his latest indie film (Richard Ayoade’s Dostoyevsky adaptation The Double – which is quite good), Jesse Eisenberg has spoken with IGN about the role. Mixing his trademark smarm with purposeful vagaries, Eisenberg answered a few questions…without really saying anything at all.

This Just In: The sun is round, people get easily offended on the internet, and there will be a Justice League movie following Batman and Superman: Friendship is Magic; this according to The Wall Street Journal, the acknowledged primary source for nerd news.

To direct Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavil), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and all the other eventual members of the Justice League (who will play Snapper Carr?!?!), Warner Bros. will once again turn to Zack Snyder, the man behind both the Man of Steel and its upcoming sequel as they hope to release the Justice League: Rise of the Superfriends as soon as 2018.  (more…)
