Batman V Superman - Dawn of Justice

For the past several weeks celebrities and non celebrities alike, have participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. This movement started as a way to raise awareness and funding for ALS, a terrible disease we know little about, for which there is currently no cure. Several actors who have played superheroes, have taken the Ice Bucket challenge, as well as donated money.  “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” cast and crew members have taken part. Director Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne/Batman), and Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman) have all been involved. Now Henry Cavill and Amy Adams have joined in, however, they performed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in their Superman and Lois Lane Wardrobe. Check it out:

If you can we encourage you to donate, to this charity or anther charity of your choice.

Henry Cavill On Set In New Superman Costume!

Superman on set of Batman V Superman

We’ve seen plenty of set images of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, on the Detroit set of “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Don’t worry folks, Superman is most definitely in this film.  And to be sure, here’s an image of Henry Cavill as Superman on set in his slightly revamped new costume.  The costume looks great, Henry IS Superman in that costume, and the colours look great. I personally hope they don’t dampen the colours with film filters and such.

Scoot green socks

We’ve also seen our first images of actor Scoot McNairy on-set as well.  His role has been kept a secret since the actor was announced.  Speculation has sparked this week, as set images show the actor wearing green socks. These aren’t any old pair of green socks, they’re green socks worn for CGI replacement techniques. Fans now speculate that Scoot McNairy is playing The Flash, because the CGI will be used to give the actor the illusion of super-speed. This seems like a bit of a stretch just because the green socks are covering the actor’s legs. However, The Flash has been rumored to make an appearance in this film for quite some time. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Gotham Arkham 01

With Gotham being just over a month away, we’re seeing promotion for the series increase.  We know Hugo Strange will play a role in the series, and that his origins will be linked to Arkham Asylum.  Courtesy of the website Batman-News, we have our first look at GOTHAM’s Arkham Asylum.  It looks appropriately, run down ominous, and creepy! I especially love that the lettering on the signage on the gate, matches with the comic book and animated series.  It really is the little things that make my geeky heart happy.

Bruce Wayne on set - B V S

Moving to Metropolis, and the big screen adventure involving Bruce Wayne.  Outdoor filming continues to take place in Detroit. This week they’ve been filming a car chase scene.  Naturally, some scenes involve Ben Affleck’s stunt double, but here we see Bruce Wayne himself rolling up his sleeve getting ready for superhero action. I tell you, when I see that first image of Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent together sharing a scene, I’m going to cry man-tears of joy.

Batman V Superman - Dawn of Justice

The agonizing wait for the release of “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice”, just got six weeks shorter.  The film has moved from its May 6, 2016 release date to March 25 2016,. The Wrap reports the film is the cornerstone of the DC Cinematic Universe.  That universe will include 9 as of yet untitled films, that have all been given release dates. The release dates are as follows;

* Untitled DC Film – 08/05/16

* Untitled DC Film – 06/23/17

*Untitled DC Film – 11/17/17

* Untitled DC Film – 03/23/18

* Untitled DC Film – 07/27/18

* Untitled WB Event Film – 11/16/18

* Untitled DC Film – 04/05/19

* Untitled DC Film – 06/14/19

* Untitled DC Film – 04/03/20

* Untitled DC Film – 06/19/20

* Untitled WB Event Film – 11/20/20

I personally can’t wait to get official word on exact titles for those other DC Films.  So it turns out that the often hyped war between “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice”, & “Captain America 3″ won’t happen.  But most sensible people knew that already. By the way, to the idiots saying Marvel Won because Batman V Superman moved away from Captain America 3, you’re wrong! Had they stayed on the same day Batman V Superman would’ve been #1. Sure Captain America would’ve taken a bite out of B V S take, but it still would’ve won! WB moved to maximize the box office intake. Plain and simple. Bottom line, we’ll get to see Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman on-screen sooner, and the DC Cinematic Universe is expanding.  Those are two great developments.

First Look At Ben Affleck As Bruce Wayne + GOTHAM Finds Its Sal Maroni!

Ben Affleck - Bruce Wayne on set

With location filming taking place in Detroit, set images were bound to find their way on-line! We have our first look at Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, along with a look at the logo of the Wayne Financial building amongst the rubble of destruction in either Metropolis or Gotham.

Staying in GOTHAM, but on the small screen, the upcoming FOX prequel series has cast actor David Zayas as Mob Boss Salvatore Maroni.  “In time, Maroni will develop into one of Batman’s first enemies and become infamous as the man responsible for disfiguring DA Harvey Dent, leading to his transformation into Two-Face. But for now, as he strives to gain more territory in Gotham, he’ll find himself on a crash course with his rival Falcone (John Doman) for control of the city.” The more I hear about this show, the more it feels like “Gotham Central, meets “The Godfather”, and “Smallville” thrown in for good measure. GOTHAM premiers September 22 at 8pm.
