DC Collectibles announced the upcoming release of a number of new action figures, including their own line of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" figures, "Man of Steel" figures, and a Jim Lee designed BlueLine Superman action figure.

February 11, 2016: New "Batman v Superman" IMAX PosterPrint

IMAX Poster In conjunction with the release of the final trailer for the movie, Warner Bros. has also released a new poster via USA Today for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" promoting the release of the film in IMAX.

    From the trailers to the "v" in the title, we knew there was going to be a serious battle of the world's finest superheroes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But looking at this exclusive new IMAX poster, STUFF GETS REAL.

    There's so much rubble flying around it looks like a tornado of ruination. Henry Cavill's Man of Steel doesn't look pleased. And although his back's turned, it's safe to guess Ben Affleck's armored Dark Knight isn't smiling. We're betting on the grimmest of grimaces.

February 11, 2016: Good Morning America Cancels "Batman v Superman" Special EventPrint

Earlier this week we reported that ABC's morning talk show "Good Morning America" would host a special "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" presentation on the morning of Monday, February 15 starting at 7.00am in New York City.

Unfortunately that event has now been cancelled.

The event was promoted by the 1iota Twitter account, with free tickets offered for fans to be in the audience for the show... but people who were lucky enough to snap up those tickets received an email today informing them of the event's cancellation.

Email

We don't know what the special "Batman v Superman" event was supposed to include, or whether any of the cast were scheduled to be in attendance. I guess now we'll never know.

February 11, 2016: Dan Amboyer Talks About His Role in "Batman v Superman"Print

Dan Amboyer Dan Amboyer, best known for his role in TV Land's "Younger" series, spoke to PopSugar.com about his secret role in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"... a character called Lieutenant Christie, a character speculated to possibly be the Green Lantern.

    PS: First, what was set like?

    DA: It was awesome. I got there right at the beginning of shooting and it was crazy because my first day people were showing me around and all of a sudden the Superman suit comes by - and it's giant. It's not something you can hang up. So that was insane. But what I thought was really interesting was that they filmed a lot of it on film, not digital. So a lot of the sets were actually built. So, all of a sudden, you're on another planet, literally. Everything is so intricate and perfect. You think so much of that is just CGI and postproduction, but it was actually there.

    PS: Were you a fan of comics growing up? DA: That was more my brother's thing. I had an appreciation from the outside, but I never got deep into it. But I've become more interested in it and it's strange because I have started to audition for more of that stuff. I auditioned to play Superman in Man of Steel originally and I auditioned for The Flash. I've constantly been coming back to these characters.
