Batman V Superman - Dawn of Justice

We’ve seen partial pictures of the Batmobile that Ben Affleck’s Batman will drive in “Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice.” With filming taking place on the streets of Detroit, and a car chase involving The Dark Knight’s famous vehicle an almost certainty, we were bound to see it in full view eventually. Low and behold, that day has arrived. Amidst all the spy pictures, Zack Snyder & Warner Brothers have released an official image of the the new Batmobile. It looks like my original assessment; as if the Tim Burton Batmobile, and the Christopher Nolan Batmobile had sex, and this was their progeny. There’s also a bit of the “Arkham” video games Batmobile thrown in for good measure. The new Bat vehicle definitely has the sleekness of its 1989 counterpart, but maintains the rugged animalistic quality of its  “The Dark Knight Trilogy” brethren.  Two things are clear from these pictures. 1. I want one 2. I can’t wait to see it in action.

“Supergirl” To Take Flight On Television!

Supergirl in Clouds

While the DC Cinematic Universe is just getting underway, the companies television ventures are thriving.  “Arrow” is going into it’s third season, and this fall will be joined by “The Flash”, “Gotham”, and “Constantine.”  Apparently, DC Entertainment wants to add another hero to that growing list. “On the heels of the success of Arrow and the strong buzz for its upcoming offshoot The Flash — both co-created and executive produced by Greg Berlanti — the top producer is looking to transition another popular DC superhero character to the small screen. I’ve learned that Berlanti has teamed with Ali Adler, who worked on his ABC series No Ordinary Family, for a TV series based on Supergirl. Warner Bros. TV, which is behind all DC TV series, will produce with Berlanti’s studio-based Berlanti Prod. Geoff Johns is involved ins some capacity, and the series is being shopped around much like “Gotham” was.  The fact that this is being shopped around, means it probably won’t be on The CW.  I can only think of two reasons why, the tone of “Supergirl” doesn’t fit with “Arrow” & “The Flash.” The other reason being that The CW already had a Superman related TV series with “Smallville,” and doesn’t want to tread the same waters again.  Speaking of Superman, how will this potential series handle the issue of Superman, and the probable lack of appearance of said character? Who will play Supergirl? All these questions will be answered as the show progresses through development. However, it’s time for another female led superhero television series, and I’m glad the Girl of Steel is getting her time to shine.

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.
