July 1, 2015: Warner Bros. Officially Announce "Batman v Superman" Panel at Comic-ConPrint

Batman v Superman Warner Bros. Pictures Reveals Superlative Line-up for This Year's Comic-Con

The Studio gets set to hit Hall H with Fan Favorites and a few surprises

Warner Bros. Pictures continues its tradition of delivering its most anticipated tentpole properties and their biggest stars to Comic-Con International: San Diego with this year's Hall H presentation.

On Saturday, July 11, beginning at 10:30 a.m., Warner Bros. will showcase several of its upcoming feature releases and offer up a surprise or two as well.

Keen to deliver a taste of one of next year's most eagerly awaited pairings, director Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill take the main stage with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." They are joined by castmates Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot for a sneak peek at the 2016 action adventure that brings the Super Heroes together on the big screen for the very first time, from Warner Bros. Pictures and RatPac-Dune Entertainment.

And Cavill once again takes the stage, this time with Armie Hammer, a duo with a very different dynamic in this summer's fresh, über-stylish actioner from filmmaker Guy Ritchie, "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," along with fellow stars Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki.

Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, stated, "Comic-Con provides us a fantastic opportunity to interact with the fans and this year, as with every year, our aim is to surpass their expectations. We're also thrilled to give our filmmakers and talent a chance to experience the unique energy and enthusiasm of Comic-Con."

With "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." and "Pan" headlining the bill, Warner Bros. will also present some unexpected offerings that are sure to delight the crowd.

About "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"

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. Directed by Zack Snyder, the film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot. Snyder directed from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, with Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and David S. Goyer serving as executive producers. Warner Bros. Pictures presents, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, a Zack Snyder film, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." The film opens nationwide in 3D and 2D and in select IMAX theaters on March 25, 2016, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

June 30, 2015: Pak and Kuder Discuss the Changes to Superman in "Action Comics"Print

Action Comics #42 DC Comics has published an interview with Greg Pak and Arron Kuder, the creative team taking care of "Action Comics", and asked them all about the current "Truth" arc and the changes that Superman is going through. Here's part of the interview...

    Aaron, how would you describe the change in the visual tone the series has undergone?

    Aaron: How would I describe it? Paired. Like a fine wine with a good meal, or beer and burger.

    The look is matched to the story. That's in fact how the initial design elements started changing. Greg, Gene, John, Pete, Eddie and I worked together to create the story here. As we pulled together story elements, the images floated into play as well. The T-shirt. The jeans. It wasn't rocket science coming up with the "look," but it fit.

    How does it affect Clark knowing that many citizens of Metropolis do not support, and even hate him?

    Greg: We'll explore that big time in Action Comics. Some of the people Clark cared about the most in the city now hate and fear him. And at the same time, he'll find he has some unexpected new allies - and rivals. Keep your eyes open for a brand new character named Lee Lambert in particular. She's a firefighter who lives in Clark's building and becomes a leader of the community that grows there after the reveal of Clark's secret identity.

    Can we expect to see Lois Lane and Clark come face to face in the future?

    Greg: Absolutely. You're going to see the whole story of how Clark's identity gets revealed in Gene [Luen Yang] and John [Romita, Jr.]'s Superman book, which of course will feature Lois and will be awesome.

    And Lois and Clark have some big moments in Batman/Superman that touch on their relationship post-reveal. Dontcha dare miss it!
