The new Man of Steel trailer is here.
Whatever you thought of The Amazing Spider-Man (personally, I thought it wasn't the Spider-Man I grew up with, but it was a valid reinvention and a sturdy foundation for a new franchise), I am sure we can all agree that Martin Sheen's Uncle Ben was one of the absolute highlights. In fact, I would say it is the one area that Marc Webb's reboot betters Sam Raimi's original trilogy.
Good news! Sheen has confirmed that he will be returning to play Uncle Ben in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Those last two news stories were excessively negative, so here's some positivity we can all agree on: Henry Cavill has a handsome, handsome face.
Since Warner Brothers announced Christopher Nolan would be producing the upcoming Man of Steel, there has been much discussion over the similarities between his own Batman Trilogy and Zack Synder’s version of Superman.
Nolan has been doing some press for the Blu ray release of The Dark Knight Rises and was asked by the guys at The Playlist whether Man of steel fits into the same universe as Batman.
Joss Whedon is one busy chap, that's for sure.
Ladies, gentlemen, geeks and anti-hipsters, welcome to another Panels To Frames, where a bald and angry comic geek froths at the mouth for your amusement. This week I'd like to talk to you about comic book movie merchandise. This stuff and I have quite a history, to be honest. As well as being a lifelong nerd, I worked in a comic shop for nine years and spent my every waking moment surrounded by action figures, statues, graphic novels and endless other bits of licensed treasure.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has found its Harry Osborne in the shape of Dane DeHaan, star of the Superhero movie with a difference, Chronicle.
Now this is a striking image. The latest poster for Man Of Steel, the Zack Snyder-directed/Christopher Nolan-produced Superman reboot, shows the last son of Krypton under arrest by the military.
Following the monumental success of The Avengers this summer, Warner Bros. are in a mad scramble to put together a rival from their immense back catalogue of DC superheroes. While The Avengers had over five years and five lead-in films to develop and evolve into the crowd-pleasing hit that we have today, Justice League has a little under three to figure itself out. This involves figuring out a roster, casting, figuring out a plot and so forth...
One decision that appears to be made; with the identity of the Justice League's arch-nemesis being heavily rumoured to be Darkseid.
The rumour mill is running on overdrive at the moment, not least to do with X-Men prequel Days of Future Past. It’s now set to include members of casts both old and new to the mutant universe as Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are joining in the fight once again. Potentially Hugh Jackman, as well - if whisperings from Tinsel Town are to be believed - in a somewhat meatier part than the previous film.
