    Was it the one month break? I am not sure but this was a deflated chapter in the storyline. We backtracked on the murder and the bait and switch was really felt with a seemingly out of the blue fundamental change in Neil/Ulysses. The villain Machinist turned out to be far from a great new villain he was built up to be and into a story trope and a bit of a dull one compared to how threatening he was to start with! The only plus was the very short scene of Daily Planet chatter and Perry swearing he would get Clark back where he belongs as part of their team. I hope the story can recover because it had such promise and that seems lost now.

    The impact on the cast is weighing heavily, and reliving Smallville's past seasons as they begin to wipe out, really upped the ante. I liked that the Blue Lantern ring found a new host and a worthy one at that. I am really disappointed that the story is nearing an end very soon. The energy in the story and the life breathed into characterizations is so refreshing that it will be a real loss to Superman fans!

October 26, 2014: Henry Cavill Video Interview - Gibraltar ROCK RunPrint

Gibraltar Rock Run As an ambassador for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, Henry Cavill participated in a video interview with HenryCavillNews.com to discuss the Gibraltar ROCK Run, his affiliation with the Royal Marines, and how he's enjoyed his time working on "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in Detroit, Michigan.

Part 2 of this interview will be posted online tomorrow.


October 26, 2014: Cemetery Scene Filmed for "Batman v Superman"Print

Wayne Tomb Batman-News.com posted a few photos taken over the weekend of the Wayne family tomb and cemetery which were built in the Orion Oaks County park in Michigan.

    You can clearly see that these are tombstones from members of the Wayne family. Will we see Ben Affleck take part in the iconic scene from the comics and animated TV series which show Bruce Wayne visiting his parents? There's also another theory that this is a flashback funeral scene, perhaps going way back to when Bruce Wayne's parents were murdered. Bananadoc spotted some very old looking cars and a hearse on the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set this weekend, which back up that claim.

The Batmobile was also spotted in Metamora at the Orion Oaks County park location.

"I chose to support this charity, not only because of my obvious familial connection," said Henry, whose brother is a Marine and also participated in the run, "but because of the deep respect I have for the Royal Marines as men and as a corps."

October 24, 2014: Could Lex Luthor Appear in "Suicide Squad" Movie?Print

Jesse Eissenberg Deadline.com report that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor could appear in the 2016 "Suicide Squad" movie.

    I hear that Warner Bros is in discussions with Jesse Eisenberg to take the Lex Luthor character he will unveil in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and transfer the villain character to Suicide Squad. As Deadline reported, Will Smith and Tom Hardy are the being sought hard to star in the David Ayer-directed action film along with The Wolf of Wall Street‘s Margot Robbie. Charles Roven is producing.

    This would complicate the expectation that Eisenberg would star in the Todd Phillips-directed Arms And The Dudes. I'm hearing it's unlikely he would be able to do both. He's already set to reprise in Now You See Me 2, and this one is a clear priority since Kevin Tsujihara told Wall Street that it would be a 2016 release.

October 24, 2014: Screenwriter Dan Gilroy Talks About "Superman Lives"Print

Nicolas Cage as Superman In an interview with Movies.com, screenwriter Dan Gilroy reveals that the never-made "Superman Lives" script was amongst his favorites, and its cancellation in the late 1990s is still a sore point for him.

    Movies.com: Is there a favorite script of yours that never came to be?

    Gilroy: I had some pretty high-profile ones. You know, I spent a year working with Tim Burton on his Superman Lives movie and the day they pulled the plug on that was very, very disappointing. It was disappointing for all of us: for me, for Tim, for Nic Cage, for John Peters. We were very far along and Warner Bros. had gone through a cycle where nothing they were making was connecting and they were hemorrhaging money and they just didn't feel that they could sustain making that film. So that was a major disappointment. I think Tim would have made a really marvelous film out of what we had come up with. That was hard.

    Movies.com: How do you recover from that?

    Gilroy: It's a wound. It's like getting punched in the face. You spend a year pouring all your artistic and creative energy into it and suddenly it evaporates and goes away in the space of a phone call. And you have to regroup. It's a disappointment, though obviously there are greater disappointments in life than that, but you have to take the time to say that hurts and figure out what that means and as honestly as possible move on and continue what you're doing. I think Tim and all of us went through that process. It was very painful.

    Movies.com: Is there anything from your script that you wanted for Superman that you're still bummed hasn't seen the light of day?

    Gilroy: Tim had the idea, which was really the driving force of the movie, that Jor-el didn't have the chance to tell Kal-el when he put him in the little spaceship meteorite where he came from or who he was. So poor little Kal-el grew up on Earth having no idea where these powers came from or who he was, and I always thought that was a really inverted, deconstructionist element to bring to the story. I loved it and working with Tim we tried to explore it as much as possible. I'd love to see it happen some day. I'm a big Tim Burton fan.

October 23, 2014: Batman-Heavy Teaser Trailer for "Batman v Superman" Rumored in DecemberPrint

Dawn of Justice Batman-on-Film.com claim that a teaser trailer for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", which will focus mostly on Batman, will be released over the next two months.

    According to a few of BOF’s BvS insiders, the first teaser trailer for the film is complete and ready to go. The overt hint I got from these folks is that the teaser will be revealed this Fall along with a November or December film release (and online, of course). I have no idea to which specific film it may be “attached,” but New Line’s (which is Warner Bros.’ sister company) THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES is being released on December 17, 2014.

Releasing a teaser trailer 15 or 16 months before a film's release does seem like a long time. The teaser trailer for "Man of Steel" was released with "The Dark Knight Rises" on July 19, 2012, which was 11 months ahead of the film's release.
