January 17, 2015: Henry Cavill Says "Batman v Superman" is "Cinematic History"Print

Henry Cavill DailyMail.co.uk and The Anglophile Channel both caught up with Henry Cavill for a quick video interview at the BAFTA LA Tea Party this past week, where he spoke briefly about his excitement for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

"It's Zack Snyder so it's going to be a visual spectacle and it's cinematic history," said Cavill. "We're doing Batman and we're doing Superman and it's all happening at the same time. So, fingers crossed, it turns out to be as exciting as I think it is."

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will be released to theatres on March 25, 2016.


January 17, 2015: Did Jesse Eisenberg Shave His Head for Lex Luthor Role?Print

Eisenberg A new promotional image for "Now You See Me 2" has been released online, showing Jesse Eisenberg with a crew cut hairstyle, leading many to speculate as to whether the actor actually did shave his head to play the role of Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" film.

Eisenberg attempted to keep fans in the dark about his hair (or lack thereof) during production of "Batman v Superman" by covering his head whenever he was seen in public. This new photo seems to give us a clue that Luthor may indeed be bald afterall.

January 16, 2015: Details on "Convergence" Titles in Week 4 of AprilPrint

Action Comics So far this week we've posted details on the DC Comics Convergence titles set to be released in the first three weeks of April. Today we move on to week 4.

And there's just the one Superman title to report on:

January 16, 2015: Dan Jurgens and Jeff King Talk About "Convergence"Print

Convergence #0 There's a lot of hype surrounding the upcoming two month "Convegence" comic book event spanning March-April, and PreviewsWorld.com caught up with the Dan Jurgens and Jeff King who explain how the pieces of the puzzle will now be put together.

    PREVIEWSworld: The tagline is "where do worlds go when they die?" Is it true that fans have been provided clues to this question? Dan DiDio said the Convergence series was teased in DC Universe Presents: Challengers Of The Unknown #7, and the ending of Superman: Doomed #2 supposedly gave us hints on the carnage as well. Are there any more books readers should consult as a primer to Convergence #0?

    Dan Jurgens: Convergence can be read on its own, but if readers want to look for clues they can absolutely be found in other titles. Futures End certainly plays a strong roll in setting it up and taking us there. And, tying in with that, the Futures End Booster Gold issue presented an even more in-depth look at what was coming. As I said earlier, it's a place where almost anything is possible - where the very best of DC history is a reality.

    Jeff King: I'd say read every issue of Grant Morrison's amazing Multiversity to set the mood. Then Futures End #1 and Superman Doomed #2 which show you that some long presumed-dead pre-New 52 Worlds still exist, but they are domed (versus bottled). Then read Justice League International Annual #1 and especially Booster Gold: Futures End #1 because they establish certain characters retain their memories when they travel to, and return from, this place. Finally, in Futures End #22, we meet Brainiac himself in the flesh. And Action Comics #35 suggests that the Brainiac we meet is the Brainiac of... pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths! Because Convergence is the sum of its parts, I'd say it all starts there. Remember 2015 is the thirtieth anniversary of that event. Zero Hour, Red Son and Kingdom Come each have important clues as does Geoff Johns' seminal work on Flashpoint too.
