BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
When Ben Affleck first signed on to play Batman in Zack Snyders upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans were quick to point out that the film won't be the first time that the actor/director has tried to play a legendary comic book character. Back in 2003 he was hired to play the titular character in director Mark Steven Johnson's Daredevil, and while that movie was successful at the box office, it's not exactly one of the best examples of the superhero genre.
Batman v Superman is reportedly getting ready to shoot scenes in what could wind up being Wayne Manor. This story, however, comes with a twist. The house that is said to be in use is a rather decrepit old brick building with boarded windows and an unkempt lawn. Obviously this isn’t a typical description of the stately manor from DC Comics, but it could tell us something interesting about what Zack Snyder and his crew are doing with their incarnation of Dark Knight.
Batman's 75th anniversary will be ushered in with the official unveiling of a Batman stamp collection, which will feature designs from DC's Golden Age, Silver Age, Bronze Age, and the New 52 era.
Starting with Neal Hefti’s 1966 Batman Theme, before then moving onto Danny Elfman’s 1989 theme song for Tim Burton’s reboot and ultimately concluding with Hans Zimmer’s Like A Dog Chasing Cars from 2008’s The Dark Knight, The Piano Guys effortlessly meander to each era with ease, and any self-respecting Batman fan needs to devour this video instantly.

Every time we hear there's a new version of the Batman mythos coming down the pike, there's one question that weighs on everyone's minds: "Does this mean we need to see Bruce Wayne's parents die again?" It's a valid question, as there have been countless origin stories for the Caped Crusader, and an almost equal amount of re-enactments of the moment Bruce Wayne swore his life to vengeance against the criminal scum of Gotham City.

Say you're living near an area where they're filming some early morning shots of the Batmobile from Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Would you start shooting cell phone video once being woken up, or would you demand Zack Snyder's head on a plate?
A Twitter user recently posted some photos on his timeline showing that the production of Batman vs. Superman has changed the location of a restaurant known as the Hygrade Deli to a place named Ralli's Diner.
There are a few different ways that an actor can approach the media when he or she is part of a massive superhero movie franchise. Some gracefully dance around questions with wordy but completely empty answers, as Jesse Eisenberg brilliantly manages here.
There have been a lot of rumors flying around about Scoot McNairy's exact role in Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. But this latest piece of speculation takes the legs out from under us, as well as a classic Superman character.
If we had to guess, we’d say McNairy will play The Flash alongside his Argo co-star and director, Ben Affleck. On that note, McNairy said knowing Affleck didn’t help him get this Dawn of Justice gig.
Appearances of this incredible hero “[date] back about three years, according to some tweets,” and that the superhero impersonator “has also been spotted outside Chiba in Yokohama and Tokyo’s Akihabara district.” Naturally, the Caped Crusader earned the nickname “Chibatman” from area supporters.
In an exclusive interview with the Russos today, they told me the shift was inevitable… and ultimately great for fans. “We knew when they announced that it was somewhat of a placeholder, that it was a game of chicken to see if Marvel really had a film that was going to land on that date or not,” Joe Russo explained
Stupid Bane (Tom Hardy). That dude ruins everything for the poor citizens of Gotham. Want to take your kids to a Gotham Rogues football game? Bane’s blowing up the field.

Clearly it's an exciting time for Zack Snyder right now, as his Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice is one of the most talked about releases on deck for 2016. Things are about to get a little more exciting, as he and his crew are breaking out their passports and heading to lovely Morocco. But why?
Pierce Brosnan started out a star in the 1980's, and has made quite a name for himself ever since. But there's one role he didn't really take to that would have changed everything, had he actually taken it seriously.
Frank Miller is a comic book author known and admired for his deeply dark brand of visual storytelling, perhaps most recognized from the movie adaptations of his graphic novels Sin City and the upcoming Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. It turns out, Miller is outright hostile to movie adaptations of his characters that he himself didn't have a hand in helming, and that includes every single Batman movie. In fact, he hates them. Every. Single. One.
The Argo co-star was photographed smoking a cigarette and checking his phone, allegedly between takes. But when you scan down, you see that Scoot McNairy is wearing socks over his calves that suggest his legs will be altered in post-production, the way green-screen technology allows a filmmaker to manipulate an image.
Affleck is said to be going to the gym regularly for this role, but before this, he was happily playing non-musclebound characters. For a body to make a sudden shift into bruiser territory so quickly? No amount of money or personal trainers can ignore that this is just an unnatural treatment for the human body, and the body will often act accordingly.
Ben Affleck knows you aren’t crazy about him being cast as the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But he has been through this before (Gigli), and it seems to have made him (Jersey Girl) stronger as a result.
Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has created its fair share of controversies as its moved through pre-production and filming, but one of the most interesting points of contention between the fans and the film has been the casting of Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
