July 3, 2015: Watch Footage of Nicolas Cage Suiting Up for "Superman Lives"Print

Nicolas Cage The LA Times has posted exclusive footage from "The Death of 'Superman Lives': What Happened?", the full-length documentary by filmmaker Jon Schnepp which examines the story behind the proposed 1998 "Superman Lives" movie, showing Nicolas Cage trying on an early prototype for the tight, blue Superman costume.

    The interviews, combined with exclusive concept art and the amazing behind-the-scenes footage of Cage in Superman mode, paint a pretty good picture of what could have been, and it would have been insane. But that good kind of Burton insane. Probably.

    "The Death of 'Superman Lives': What Happened?" isn't all just Cage doing super calisthenics; the documentary also puts a lot of long-held "Superman Lives" rumors on blast. For example, the lightning super suit (seen above) was not going to be used for the entirety of the film. There would be no rainbow lightbrite Superman - a fact that Schnepp clears up. According to the documentary, that suit was made for a singular moment early on in the film.

Watch the video at the LA Times website.

"The Death of 'Superman Lives': What Happened?" will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and video on demand on July 9 only through the documentary's website or at booth #3915 at San Diego Comic-Con.


July 3, 2015: Rumor - Possible Detailed Plot Description for "Batman v Superman"Print

Batman v Superman Earlier in the week I was alerted to a thread started at the IMDB message boards where someone had posted an alleged detailed plot description for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

I didn't pay too much attention to it at the time, but with yesterday's release of new stills from the movie by EW.com, details from the posted plot description seemed more credible. For example, the post specifies a scene in which Bruce Wayne is dancing/flirting with Diana Prince at a fundraising event... and we then got the image from the film of that very scene a few days later.

I have no way of confirming whether the rumored plot description posted at IMDB is for real or not. Having read it, it does seem rather detailed and includes many elements that sound plausible and actually quite impressive.

If you do choose to head on over to the IMDB message boards and read the possible detailed plot description for yourself, be warned that it may contain MAJOR SPOILERS.

July 2, 2015: Melissa Benoist Talks About Landing the Role of SupergirlPrint

Supergirl As part of their Comic-Con preview, EW.com has published an interview with Melissa Benoist to find out all about her feelings on playing Supergirl, what the auditioning process was like, and what research she's done for her new TV role. Here's part of the interview...

    How did you feel when you first landed the role of Supergirl?

    When I learned that I got the part there were a mixture of many emotions that rushed through me - elation, relief, immense joy and then, there was also a huge sense of responsibility that came immediately. I definitely thought to myself, "Oh man, you've got your work cut out for you."

    Were you a big comic book fan growing up or have you had to play catch up now that you have this role?

    Strangely, I was a DC fan, not so much the comics. I loved Michael Keaton's Batman. I grew up with those movies. One of my closest friends is a huge comic book reader and has been since he was very, very little. He really turned me onto them in college - more graphic novels than comic books. I have had to play some catch up specifically with the Supergirl books. I've been reading the New 52 series and more of the newly published Supergirl comics.

    How did you feel the first time you put on the Supergirl costume?

    The first time I put the costume on, it was a mixture of a lot of emotions. It's impossible not to feel empowered when you put it on. You would think, "Oh, it's silly. I'm putting on tights. I'm putting on a leotard and a skirt. There's muscles built into the suit. There's a cape. I'm going to feel like it's Halloween." But something changes internally. I feel like a different person almost. It really is an alter ego, where I feel inspired, hopeful and empowered. I tried the suit for the first time on at the costume designer's house. I had just had an injury to my eye, so I had an eye patch on. [Laughs] So simultaneously, I'm feeling all these feelings of empowerment and positivity and femininity and strength, and I have this pirate patch on essentially. It was a little goofy. There was two things going on at once - two opposing factors of trying the suit on.

"Supergirl" premieres Monday, October 26 at 8:30pm ET on CBS.


July 2, 2015: New Still Images from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"Print

EW.com has published seven new photos from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", including their special Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Preview magazine cover which depicts Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman together.

Other photos include Superman and Batman facing off against one another:

    For his climactic rooftop brawl with Superman, Batman outfits himself with a reinforced mech-suit equipped with strength-augmenting armor and, yes, kryptonite. The design resembles the one used for the confrontation between these two in Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.

Batman v Superman

    Batman and Wonder Woman have a meeting of alter-egos as Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince parry and flirt at a high-society function.

Diana & Bruce

    "I like to think that Man of Steel was the perspective of the world from Clark, Kal-El, looking at the world and trying to exist with in it," says Cavill. "Batman v Superman is definitely more mankind's perspective of Superman."

Superman

    "When it was supposed to look rainy and miserable, it had to be rainy and miserable," says Affleck of the high chance of precipitation on set. "The long dark night of the soul and whatnot."

Batman

    While his version of the villain might be sporting luscious locks in this photo, you can rest assured that the movie will feature that iconic chrome dome.

Lex Luthor

    "It'll be five years by the time the movie comes out," says Snyder "And then if everything goes to plan it'll be another five years of Justice League. I'll be 10 years of superheroes by the end of this."

Zack Snyder

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.

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.

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.

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.
