Jesse Eisenberg

Since he was cast, Jesse Eisenberg has said little of his role as Lex Luthor in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.” He recently talked to Total Film, who asked him about the role.  He said as a kid he didn’t read comic books and even intimated that he hasn’t really watched the recent bevy of superhero movies being released.  However, he now understands their appeal and fan base, given the quality of story, acting talent, and professionalism involved in making this film. However, since getting the role he has read some comic books, and even watched one of the Superman films featuring Gene Hackman. Regarding his version of Lex Luthor in this film. Eisenberg stated; ““There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then an actor makes it his or her own. I got to know one of the writers Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology. I can only say I’ve been asked to play an interesting role. A complicated, challenging person.”

B V S - Clark Kent in Gotham

More photo’s of the Gotham City Jail set location have found their way on the internet. This time we see Henry Cavill on set in full Clark Kent mode. He somewhat resembles Tom Welling’s version of the Clark Kent disguise in this picture. The main difference being that Henry Cavill is a far better actor then Tom Welling in general.  This picture is capturing history. This is the first time ever in a live action film that Clark Kent has been in Gotham City.  I get chills just thinking about it.

Gotham Police

Obviously we knew Gotham City would feature in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice”, since you know, Bruce Wayne/Batman is in the movie.  We know Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne’s butler is in the movie, played by Jeremy Irons.  It’s also safe to assume that the San Diego Comic Con footage was set in Gotham. However, many of the set photo’s released thus far were set in Superman’s home of Metropolis.  Until recently that is. New on location set imagery reveals the Gotham City Jail. We’ve also seen Gotham City Police vehicles on the scene. What’s happening in these scene is anyone’s guess, but it begs the question, will Gotham City’s top cop Commissioner Gordon be in the film as well? We’ll have to wait until Warner Brothers announces such news, or he makes a surprise appearance in the film. If he is in the film, Kurt Russell is my first choice.

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.

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.
