We all know that Warner Brothers is waiting to see how well Man of Steel does in the box office before pulling the trigger on their Justice League project, but another information surfaced recently about who could possibly helm the potentially bank breaking film: Zack Snyder. It really doesn’t come as a surprise to hear his name being in consideration, but I think this pretty much kills off all rumors of Christopher Nolan being up for that task, not that anybody was holding their breath or anything.

A new trailer was released a day ago, but I just got around to watching it…and it is magnificent. This new trailer gives us a glimpse into its story structure a bit more than the previous ones and we get a few more frames of action to see how this new Superman stacks up. Needless to say, he moves and tears through things like the last son of Krypton should. Continue Reading
Michael Shannon doesn’t have the greatest hair cut in this picture, but boy does he fill out that metal armor! Recently, there’s been a few more revealing pictures for Man of Steel, but it’s been far too long since we got any new footage from the film.
And now, in the long standing tradition of DC viral marketing campaign, they released a static clip of Zod threatening the humans to present them with Kal-El, a former native of Krypton and our featured super hero. Continue Reading
According to Latino Review, Christopher Nolan has been given full creative control over their Justice League franchise and WB wants the entire thing set in the same universe as “The Dark Knight” trilogy. If this is to be believed, then they’re no longer rebooting Batman (meaning it is absolutely possible that Christian Bale would reprise his role), but this wasn’t necessarily the approach they had in mind from the start.

Amy Adams was recently on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to talk about her role in The Master (which she got an Oscar nod for) and they move the discussion along to her playing Lois Lane in the upcoming Zack Snyder helmed Man of Steel. She talks about how much she wanted to be Lois Lane (not to play her character, but to actually BE her) ever since she’s been exposed to Richard Donnor’s Superman movies. Continue Reading
So according to a report from Variety, the possibility of a “Justice League” movie will hinge on the big man’s success at the box office. While this is not surprising, I’m wondering if that means that they’ll forgo any ties to the team-up in “Man of Steel,” kind of like “The Avengers” initiative scene from the first Iron Man movie.

There’s been a lot of Star Wars related news as of late. Today, it’s been reported that Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Man of Steel) is developing a spin-off Star Wars movie based on Akira Kurosawa’s masterpiece Seven Samurai. He was one of the directors rumored to be involved in Star Wars VII, but I guess I wasn’t able to properly grasp the scope that Disney had envisioned for their newest acquisition. Apparently Disney CEO Bob Iger wants a new Star Wars film every two to three years. Couple that with their Marvel stuff, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the usual Disney animated movies, I’m thinking they’ll rule the planet within the next fifteen years. Continue Reading
