"Young Justice: The Complete First Season" Blu-ray
All 26 episodes of the first season will be included in this Blu-ray collection, which will be released on August 12.
"Man of Steel" Action Hero Vignette Figure
Superman soars into action with this dynamic new 1/9-scale vinyl figure. Featuring an accurate likeness of actor Henry Cavill, Superman strikes a dramatic pose on his diorama base. Fully colored and textured to a movie likeness, Superman requires minimal assembly for display.
Petersen, who has yet to cast anyone, said he wants serious actors and not action stars to assume the title roles.
"We have a script that really very, very much concentrates on the characters," he said. "It's really material for two great actors."
Though he mentioned Matt Damon in an interview with Variety, Petersen said he only cited the "Bourne Identity" star as an example of what he's talking about - "Someone where we so far did not really think of as a big action hero [who] turned out be a great actor who can also do great action. ... He's one of these kind of guys, but there's a lot of these guys out there."
And a lot of guys, including Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney, have previously portrayed Batman on the big screen. Christopher Reeve, of course, played Superman in four well-known films. Petersen said "Batman vs. Superman" will steer clear of the conventions laid down in each film series, though he admitted some degree of influence from the DC Comics series "World's Finest."
