Batman v. Superman's Zod will have flippers


Could Aquaman control him then?
Aug 20
// Matthew Razak
This could actually be one of the greatest pranks to ever be pulled by an actor, but Michael Shannon is claiming that his character in Batman v. Superman, who we're all guessing is some incarnation of Zod, will have flippers....

It's not overstating things to say that, as a movie, Man of Steel had a lot of problems. One of those was the fact that Zack Snyder's vision of Superman involved a dreary, washed-out color palette – plenty of fans were ...

Dear Warner Brothers: an open letter regarding your fledgling cinematic universe

Jun 20 // Sean Walsh
First off, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is bloated. There are just too many characters. You've already got Superman, who got his own movie, but you've got to introduce Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg (or at least pre-horrific accident Vic Stone) and apparently Aquaman. That is 5/7th's of the New 52 Justice League to cram into one movie, and that doesn't even count the bad guy (or bad guys, because let's be real, this is a comic book movie sequel). To say that it's an unwieldy amount of big name characters to cram in to one film is putting it lightly. What about Green Lantern and Flash? Well, there's a Flash that will be gracing the small screen this Fall on your channel, the CW. That's awfully convenient. Even more than that? He is spinning out of a universe rich with developed B and C-list characters that. And not just Flash, either! The centerpiece of your small-screen shared universe is Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow. He was one of the first heroes to join the original incarnation of the Justice League in the 60's, and there's no reason the star of Arrow couldn't be considered for a spot on the team at some point. Better yet, TV actors are cheaper than big names like Ben Affleck or Henry Cavill, so in a movie like Justice League that will undoubtedly cost a gazillion dollars, being able to not only save some money but to have well-established characters a good chunk of your fanbase will be familiar with really can't hurt. And, not to besmirch anybody's good name (*cough Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. *cough*), but having a small-screen tie-in to your cinematic universe full of characters we know from the comics is a smashing idea. Why have a group of original characters who are little more than archetypes dealing almost solely with movie-verse themes and issues and the occasional D-list villain when you can have a team of characters that are recognizable and pre-established in other media fighting bad guys that are similarly pre-established? And, honestly, by the time Justice League actually comes out, who knows how many shows you'll have populating your shared universe. Finally, the best part? The real kicker? It's still early enough in your cinematic world's development that this suggestion is completely feasible. To my knowledge, nothing has been done in Arrow or Man of Steel that contradicts either's lore! I cannot think of one reason not to do this, Warner Brothers. Arrow has already built such a rich universe, one that led to a Flash spinoff of all things, that fusing it to your nothing-if-not-ambitious (if the rumors about your film slate are true) plans for a cinematic universe can only result in one much stronger universe for us all to enjoy! And let's be honest: your distinguished competition is already leaps and bounds ahead of you. Having a little super-speed to catch up can't hurt. Love always, Sean Walsh

Jessie Eisenberg is Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred

Jan 31 // Matthew Razak
Full Press Release BURBANK, CA, January 31, 2014 – Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that Jesse Eisenberg has been set to star as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons will play Alfred in the upcoming Zack Snyder untitled Superman/Batman film. The dual announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. Snyder stated, “Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman’s rivals, his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940. What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He’s a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions.” The director added, “As everyone knows, Alfred is Bruce Wayne’s most trusted friend, ally and mentor, a noble guardian and father figure. He is an absolutely critical element in the intricate infrastructure that allows Bruce Wayne to transform himself into Batman. It is an honor to have such an amazingly seasoned and gifted actor as Jeremy taking on the important role of the man who mentors and guides the guarded and nearly impervious façade that encapsulates Bruce Wayne.” Snyder’s film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. The film also reunites “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. The new film is currently being written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers. The film is set to open worldwide on May 6, 2016, and is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment.
