    New Dark Knight Image From "Batman V Superman"

    If you've watched the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer at least eleventeen times like I have, you noticed a steam punk version of the Dark Knight going toe to toe with Superman Soldiers. Why there are Superman Soldiers remains to be seen but Clay Enos posted a photo of Batman's Gotham By Gaslight look via TWITTER.

    "X-Men: Apocalypse" Comic-Con Poster & Interview With Bryan Singer

     

    I don't remember if I am in the minority or majority anymore, nor do I even care, but I enjoyed Superman Returns. Sure there were some major flaws, but there was also a large number of flaws in Man Of Steel and I enjoyed that quite a lot as well. I think Bryan Singer put his heart and soul into Superman and it showed. Now back in the X-Men universe, Singer is doing the same for Fox and is looking to up the ante with X-Men: Apocalypse

    Check out his interview with YAHOO MOVIES! where he discusses the 2016 film below and enjoy the Comic-Con poster above.

    Singer On Apocalypse:

    “Apocalypse is a pretty cool character, X-Men is always centered around the fight between mutants and humans. This one is a bit different, it deals with the concept of ancient mutantism, gods and men. It deals with issues that are global. Apocalypse makes no distinction between humans and mutants, only between the weak and the strong. He as a character is what is so ultimately compelling.”

    Singer On The Younger Versions Of Jean, Scott, Storm and Nightcrawler:

    “These are very different characters than they were in the films X-Men 1, 2, and 3,” he states. “They are at times in their lives when they are at the most opposite of what they would become. That’s a thrill to me, to take characters I crafted so many years ago and flip them completely on their side and show how they evolved and began.”

    Singer On The Classic Suits: 

    “The X-Men are sort of a fighting team, so it was always an attempt at being realistic to have them in fighting uniforms, flight suits, things like that,” Singer suggests. “In ‘X-Men: First Class,’ which I produced and wrote the story for, we hark back to the original colors of the original costumes from the 1963 comics. I will say that in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ there is a chance -without giving anything away- that you may get closer to seeing what I think, Mr. X-Men News, you are interested in seeing. I know its something that I’ve been interested in, I just always wanted to do it the right way.”

    The Brothers Warner Get Mad, Release "Suicide Squad" Trailer

    I honestly don't know why it surprises a studio that bootleg footage of some kind would come out of a presentation at Comic-Con anymore. Especially footage from a big nerd film like Suicide Squad. Trust me, I'm not condoning bootlegging of a studio's property, I just expect this to happen at these giant conventions. 

    Apparently it pisses Warner Bros off to no end and they decided, "If you can't beat them, join them" releasing the Comic-Con trailer after trying unsuccessfully to stall the virus like spread of the illegally obtained material.

    Here is a statement from Sue Kroll, President Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution At Warner Bros:

    “Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”

    The studio had no choice in this case if you ask me, but considering the mostly positive reception the trailer is getting, seems like a win despite the lawyer-like statement from Kroll aimed at an overzealous fanboy. 

    Enjoy the trailer below and get your first real glimpse of Jared Leto's Joker and hear the Heath Ledger like voice for the first time in HD.

    First Poster For Michael Dougherty's "Krampus"

    I've always been a big fan of Michael Dougherty. I've paid close attention to his career; from his work on X-Men & Superman Returns to his horror-themed art and directorial venture on Trick 'r Treat. I'm grateful for his part in bringing the Man Of Steel back to the big screen for the first time in almost 30 years and the excitement and anticipation leading up to the film has not been duplicated for me personally since. 

    When I heard he was taking the lead on Christmas horror film Krampus, I knew he was the right person for the job based on my appreciation for Trick 'r Treat. Take a peak at the poster below and if you haven't had the time to check out his art please head over to his WEBSITE, a lot of these images helped to inspire Trick 'r Treat

    When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.

    "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" - Comic-Con Trailer

    Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman

    Nikolaj Arcel Officially Set to Direct Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower'

    Coming out of Comic Con this weekend, news comes that Sony Pictures and Media Rights Capital have closed their deal with Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel to direct Stephen King's The Dark Tower, the first entry in what they hope will be a series of films.

    Arcel will rewrite the original script - by Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner - with another Danish filmmaker, Anders Thomas Jensen.

    Both men have Oscar credentials with Arcel having been nominated for the foreign language film, A Royal Affair, and Jensen having won for his short film, Election Night.

    Sony is set to handle theatrical distribution with MRC developing a companion TV series as well, much like Stephen King's other, long in-development adaptation, The Stand. That project is further along, with a Showtime series set to debut prior to a cumulative feature film.

    Oscar winning producer Brian Grazer and fellow Oscar winning director Ron Howard are still aboard the project as execs, along with King himself. They've been involved in this project for a while, since it was being developed at both Warner Bros. and Universal.

    While I have never read any of The Dark Tower series (I know, I should), the first installment - entitled The Gunslinger - centers on the main protagonist, Roland Deschain, and his relationship with a young protege, Jake Chambers.

    Both Javier Bardem and Russell Crowe were previously attached to play Deschain and it's unknown if either actor is still interested in the role.

    All I say is this: The Dark Tower, much like The Stand, is a massive, massive undertaking. There are numerous books and millions upon millions of fans over the past 30 years. They better know what they're doing and not screw this up, period.

    'Sherlock' Christmas Special Coming to Theaters; First Clip Released

    Even though this is a TV show, it will be hitting theaters later this year so I figured it qualified for the movie section.

    Sherlock is one of those shows that has a major cult following and is a favorite among many avid TV watchers. Certainly in the vain of Doctor Who, BBC does a great job in scripting the series and seemingly keeping the storylines fresh and engaging for audience. While I have never watched the show myself, I would imagine any thing that keeps Benedict Cumberbatch on TV while the guy is crushing film roles must be pretty darn good.

    Below you'll see a clip that was released yesterday at Comic Con for a Sherlock Christmas special that is scheduled to air obviously during the holiday season. Not only that though, showrunner Steven Moffat revealed that the special will get a theatrical release in select U.S. theaters as well during December. I'm sure many Sherlock fans are eager to buy tickets to these versions of Holmes and Watson on the big screen.

    Enjoy the clip and we'll keep you posted on any more news about this project.

    Ben Affleck to Star, Direct, and Co-Write Solo 'Batman' Film with DC's Geoff Johns

    Well we pretty much knew this was coming.

    Ever since Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman almost two years ago (funny how it's been that long and we still have to wait another 8 months to actually see him play the character), it's been widely assumed he would write and direct his own Batman movie that he would of course star in as well.

    Coming out of Comic Con, word now is that Affleck will indeed helm his own Batman flick, but not only that, he'll be scripting it with DC Comics' chief creative officer, Geoff Johns.

    Johns has written some of the most memorable comic series over the past couple decades, so it's pretty great to hear he'll be working with Affleck to write the film. And though it's not reported, I personally expect Affleck's Argo writing partner, Chris Terrio (who won an Oscar for that film and also scripted next year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) to assist with the script as well.

    Word is that Affleck and Johns are very much 'in-sync' with writing the script and may even have a complete draft by the end of this summer. The plan is for Affleck to direct his long-awaited Live By Night this fall with a possible release of the new Batman film in 2018, meaning it would begin filming sometime next year, maybe early 2017.

    While it's pretty exciting to hear a guy like Affleck will be taking on his own Batman film (like him or not, the guy is talented), I'm curious as to what the public's reaction will be to his take on the character. Again, we don't know what that will be until Batman v Superman hits next year, but it's just interesting plans are already being made for more when audiences still have yet to be introduced to his new Dark Knight.

    Anyway, stay tuned for more on this project as it becomes available.

    Marisa Tomei to Play Aunt May in New 'Spider-Man'

    It's funny to think that just 13 years ago, we were in the midst of the summer of 2002, when Sam Raimi's original Spider-Man starring Tobey Maguire was dominating the film industry and box office.

    I was heading into my freshman year of high school as the public's first foray into the cinematic world of the webcrawler was a roaring success. The film had received glowing reviews and and opened with the biggest box office weekend of all-time (then $114 million), eventually heading to over $400 million domestically and over $800 million worldwide (back then, that was pretty huge).

    Obviously, two more sequels came after, followed by a reboot in 2012 with a sequel to that hitting last year, and now we have another reboot coming in 2017. This one though, is being headed by Marvel Studios and will be connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the next 10-15 years.

    How time flies.

    With our new Spider-Man cast in Tom Holland (The Impossible) and a director found in newcomer Jon Watts, word now comes that the all important role of Aunt May (the woman who raises Peter Parker and guides him as his moral compass) will be played by Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei.

    Yeah that's right, Mona Lisa Vito from My Cousin Vinny will be playing Aunt May (believe it or not, she's 50 now but doesn't exactly look it). Like I said, time flies.

    This casting actually makes a lot of sense given the Peter Parker/Spider-Man we'll be getting in this new rebooted series will be starting out as just a freshman in high school (ironic connection to my summer of 2002) at the age of 13-14, so Aunt May being in her late 40s, early 50s seems pretty appropriate.

    There's also a rumor that she'll be making her first appearance as Aunt May in next year's Captain America: Civil War, alongside Tom Holland's new Spider-Man. We shall see on that.

    Tomei is a really great actress, having been nominated for an Oscar three times (winning once, My Cousin Vinny) and appearing in numerous films like Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Wrestler and The Lincoln Lawyer. This serves as a new direction for her into studio tentpoles as she mainly sticks to dramatic work.

    Sony Pictures/Marvel Studios untitled Spider-Man reboot hits theaters in a little over two years, July 28th, 2017.
