“300: Rise of an Empire” star Callan Mulvey and “The Wolverine” star Tao Okamoto have joined the cast of Zack Snyder’s untitled Batman-Superman-centric “Man of Steel” sequel, which has been working under the title “Batman Vs Superman.” Holly Hunter has also joined the cast today. The three newcomers to the film will be playing “newly created” characters, though I’m sure the possibility is still there that they could turn out to be familiar to comic book readers. Henry Cavill is returning to play Clark Kent, aka Superman, Ben Affleck isRead More

The cast of Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” sequel “Batman vs Superman” is slowly but surely starting to come together, with THR reporting today that “Game of Thrones” alum Jason Momoa is in talks for an unspecified role opposite Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman. If his deal comes together (let’s hope this goes better than his “Guardians of the Galaxy” talks), Momoa will join Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and maybe Adam Driver as Nightwing in the film which increasingly looks like it’ll be a smorgasbord of familiarRead More

Well, I guess that answers that. Wonder Woman is in Zack Snyder’s sequel “Batman vs Superman” and she will be played by Gal Gadot, according to Variety. Gadot tested for the role and beat out competition from Olga Kurylenko and Elodie Young for what is now described as “one of the female leads” in the film. We still don’t know many details about the film, only that Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck is stepping into Bruce Wayne/Batman’s shoes. No indication of how largeRead More

UPDATE: Latest rumor from Comic Book Movie indicates the other two candidates for the job are Ezra Miller and “Gossip Girl” star Penn Badgley. They wanted a “young John Hawkes” and it looks like they just might get one. The Wrap reports “Girls” breakout star Adam Driver is the frontrunner for the newly revealed role of Dick Grayson in Zack Snyder’s “Batman Vs. Superman” team-up flick. While most of the attention has focused on the search for the female lead, which may or may not be Wonder Woman, Latino ReviewRead More

Despite “The Fifth Estate” fizzling at the box office, Benedict Cumberbatch is still in demand as Deadline reports he is the frontrunner to take the lead in Doug Liman’s adventure pic “Everest” after Tom Hardy has had to drop out. But he has some competition still, a lot of it, with just about every late 20s-early 30s actor also in the mix, including Joel Kinnaman, James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, Matthew Goode, and Jim Sturgess. Adapted from Jeffrey Archer’s book “Paths Of Glory” by OscarRead More
A mix of established and up and coming actors are being eyed by Warner Bros to go up against Henry Cavill in “Man of Steel 2″, recently unveiled at Comic Con to be Batman vs Superman themed. THR reports an older, more cynical Bruce Wayne is being sought by Zack Snyder and the studio, with Josh Brolin considered the current frontrunner, though with the script still being hammered out, it’s still very early stages. Other names in the mix include Ryan Gosling, who’s also rumored for “Star Wars Episode VII”,Read More
Looks like she’s taking her big break and running with it. Elizabeth Debicki was barely out of drama school in Australia when Baz Luhrmann cast her as Jordan Baker opposite Tobey Maguire in his “The Great Gatsby”, and Hollywood has clearly taken notice. Variety reports Debecki has now landed another major role in a major Hollywood production, signing on for Guy Ritchie’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” opposite fellow up and comers Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander. This is the 1960s buddy cop comedy style spy series that WarnerRead More
Rose Byrne is the latest to (maybe) join a big screen musical adaptation, with Variety reporting she is in early talks to take the role of Grace in Will Gluck’s adaptation of the classic orphan tale “Annie.” She is also up for a role in “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” but budget cuts on that film could delay or cancel that deal altogether. Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis plays the little orphan Annie in Sony’s remake, with Jamie Foxx as Benjamin Stacks, the updated version of Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, and Cameron DiazRead More
One of the most shocking and crowd-pleasing moments during Warner Bros’ panel at the San Diego Comic Con on Saturday came when “Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder stepped onto the stage and thanked the fans for supporting the film, and revealing that (of course), another one is on its way. But he didn’t stop there. Actor Harry Lennix was brought onto the stage, and read a message in a booming voice under a spotlight: “”I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come. In all yourRead More
With Zack Snyder’s “Man Of Steel” only a week away from release, anticiptation couldn’t be any higher. But if a “dreamy, blurry and sweepingly epic” trailer didnt sweep you away, or an action-packed, three minute long trailer featuring all the most important people in Superman’s life didn’t bring a shiver to your spine, then we’re not sure if there’s any hope for you. But just in case, here’s one last trailer. Starring Henry Cavill as Superman, one of DC’s most iconic superheroes, this final trailer has little dialogue but aRead More
