Filming begins on Man Of Steel 2.

Recently, there has been discussion on whether the film dubbed Batman Vs Superman would film within the next month.

Now we can confirm that the Man Of Steel’s production is underway in Michigan thanks to reports from locals describing spotting Henry Cavill around town. He has posed for photos with the public and apparently has been quite open about what he is filming.

According the comicbookmovie.com , Cavill has revealed the following:

1. Principal Photography has begun on the Man of Steel sequel.

2. Superman is sporting the beard. (Mario-Francisco Robles at Latino-Review assumes this means Superman is in exile)

3. Henry Cavill said he will be filming for the next 10 MONTHS! (Justice League? Anyone?)

4. Henry Cavill is currently on a strict training regime.

Interesting? Maybe the film is indeed filming back-to-back with Justice League?

Let us know what you think of this intriguing news!

Thoughts and reflections on Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

20131205-190607.jpg

After today’s surprising and puzzling casting news, I have decided to let you know my thoughts on the casting on the most important and influential superheroine of all time.

I have been wanting Wonder Woman to be on the big screen for years. I knew there was no chance of her joining Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy but when Man Of Steel was announced, I though that maybe Diana was coming to the silver screen. My heart has always been set on Thor’s Jaimie Alexander for the part and recent rumours got me excited that she may just be cast.

But it was not to be. Gadot was cast today. I liked her in the Fast & Furious movies, but didn’t take much notice of her to be quite honest. I thought she was great eye candy and a kick ass character but that was it. She didn’t have the screen time to really show us if she could act.

For me, I don’t care if this incarnation of Wonder Woman has big boobs, because that is not the essence of the character. She needs some muscle though, so I believe Snyder will have her put on a training program almost immediately.

So, I’m relatively pleased with the decision as she had the looks and can do action, but what we need to see is whether she can carry a film and act as powerful and commanding as Lady Diana.

What are your thoughts?

Well, this is a surprise. On one hand I’m pleased that WB have finally given Diana a shot at the silver screen, on the other hand I really thought Jaimie Alexander would be perfect and I’m skeptical about Gadot’s acting ability.

A bit in shock at the moment. Sorry for the short post, thought I’d bring you guys up to speed. I’ll do a longer analysis later of the casting.

Who would you have picked for Lady Diana?

DC Universe news.

20131204-113604.jpg

There have been a few tidbits of information from Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Henry Lennix and a VFX supervisor on Batman Vs. Superman.

Affleck (when asked working with Zack Snyder) : “Well, I don’t want to get too far afield and I’m sure I’ll have time to talk about Batman down the road. What I’ll say is that I really like Zack. From what I’ve seen of what’s Zack is doing, it’s made me very excited. One of the nice things about being an actor in that movie is they show you all the stuff before anyone else gets to see it. So all the sort of world-creation, and the take on the character and the other characters is really exciting.”
“And at the end of the day, the truth is it’s really directors that make movies work or not — especially these kinds of movies, where it’s about the whole world, and a rising tide lifts all ships. And if it all has integrity, if it all has a sense of realism, then it works. And if it doesn’t, than it doesn’t really matter what everyone’s doing [on the screen] because they just look like a bunch of Mexican wrestlers in suits.”

Cavill (on Easter eggs in Man Of Steel) : “On the extras on the Blu-ray, we’re going to get the opportunity to see Zack’s references to other aspects of the DC Universe. There’s one obvious one which is now particularly obvious because of our next installment, which is involving Batman as well. We see Bruce Wayne Enterprises on the satellite in space. We also see some references to LexCorp. I actually have no further knowledge of this next story, but there’s a good chance Lex is going to be introduced soon or at some stage.”

“What really intrigued me was Dr. Emil Hamilton’s connection to S.T.A.R. Labs. Cyborg I think would make a wonderful character and an incredible bridge between both superhumans and humanity in a different way to Batman. So I don’t know where he’s going to come in or if he’s going to come in, but that’s one I’m particularly excited about. Other references I’m not too sure on, but we’ll see where those lead. Those with keen eyes will see them.”

Lennix (on announcing the sequel at Comic-Con) : “It was all in real time, and the audience was playing catch-up to the mysterious weight of this reading. Just to be a part of that and to really be going on auto-pilot was just surreal. It was like an out-of-body experience. I couldn’t see anybody out there, just because of the nature of the configuration, but I could feel them. It’s like having sonar. You could feel this wave of energy coming up, the lights black out, and then I went off stage. It was a once-in-a-lifetime thing. When’s the next time I’m ever going to be able to say that Batman and Superman are going to be in the same movie. That’s crazy!” Then when asked whether he would be in the sequel Lennix said: “I have some confidence that I’m gonna be in the next installment”

VFX supervisor John Desjardin:
“I was working on Batman-Superman right before this interview, a lengthy discussion with Zack looking at a bunch of drawings he’d made on his whiteboard that charted some iconic representations of… well, of things we’re going to have to try and do. Zack told me two weeks before Comic Con exactly how he was going to present the Batman announcement, and it was exactly the way he did present it. I got chills up my spine. What I want to get out of this movie is helping Zack tell a satisfying version of these characters, a version that nobody has seen on screen yet, but when audiences watch it they’re going to say “That’s what we always wanted to see but we hadn’t seen it yet.” Touch wood, because we have a long way to go, but the course is charted and we’re set to bring those ideas onto the screen, that something we haven’t seen before.”

What do you think of these comments?

Adam Driver denies being cast as Nightwing in Batman Vs. Superman.

‘Girls’ star Adam Driver has denied being considered or cast as Nightwing in Batman Vs. Superman.

AdamDriver

The rumor, originating from TheWrap, said Driver and two others were being rumored for the part.

These were Drivers comments on the subject: “That’s like intensely flattering as you can imagine. I mean, it’s Batman and Superman, who doesn’t want to be involved in something not only of that scale but of who those characters are. That’s an incredible world to be able to be in for a bit. Like who wouldn’t want to do that?”

Since the Driver rumor is now false, it’s a big possibility that the Nightwing rumor is false also. This would be great news for the movie, which has enough comic book characters as it is. Although i would love to see a Wonder Woman cameo by Jaimie Alexander.

What do you think of Driver’s comments? Do you want to see Nightwing in a movie soon?

– Logan.
