At East Los Angeles College during halftime of their home football game. Weingart Stadium was turned into the Gotham City University home stadium for a game against their rival, Metropolis State University. It started with Warner Bros. telling the crowd that they were going to be in Batman vs. Superman. Yes, a Warner Bros. representative referred to the movie as Batman vs. Superman. That’s still not the official title, but it’s one that keeps coming up. Warner Bros. also announced that this would be the opening of the movie. Then two scenes were filmed. Both plays were from around Gotham city’s 30 yard line. The first play was a tackle for a Metropolis loss. The second was for a touchdown pass to the corner of the end zone for Metropolis. Then the bench cleared for Gotham and they had to break up a fight on the field. Gotham never even went on offense.

“Day 1 of filming for 2015’s “Batman Vs. Superman”. The scene takes place at Gotham City University’s Stadium facing off against rivals Metropolis University. Everyone in the audience was given various Gotham Football shirts. Some black, some yellow, some T Shirts, some sweatshirts, etc. Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300, Man of Steel) was on set, however the main characters were not there.”

Rockstar Games have announced that their latest game, Grand Theft Auto V, has netted over $800 million USD  in revenue in just 24 hours. The game will become the fastest selling in history when it breaks the $1 billion mark, a feat which took Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 fifteen days when it was released last November. Rockstar are reported to have spent $265 million creating and marketing Grand Theft Auto V, making it the most expensive game in history, but figures like these mean they’re even smashing the Hollywood movie box office. Compared to the blockbusters of 2013, GTA V is already ahead of films such as as Fast and Furious 6, World War Z, Man of Steel, and the year’s highest grossing film, Iron Man 3, which took home $200 million USD on its opening weekend.

Ben Affleck to Star as Batman in ‘Man of Steel’ Sequel

Superhero movie fans, we have our next Dark Knight. Oscar-winner Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman in the sequel to “Man of Steel,” Warner Brothers has confirmed. Affleck, who recently won a Best Picture Oscar for producing “Argo,” which he directed and starred in, will join Henry Cavill as Superman in the next installment of the Superman franchise. The yet-to-be titled film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who lensed “Man of Steel,” “Watchmen” and “Sucker Punch.” “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman,” Snyder said in a statement. “He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne.  I can’t wait to work with him.” The film will bring Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen, and will also bring back “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

The announcement of Affleck in one of the lead roles followed weeks of speculation about who would play Batman in the hotly anticipated film. After Christian Bale, who starred in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, nixed the idea of returning to the role, a number of actors were rumored to be on board the project, including Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Michael Fassbender.

The announcement was made today by Warner Bros. Pictures  representatives Greg Silverman and Sue Kroll:

We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular super heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some,” Greg Silverman, president of creative development at Warner Bros., said in a statement. “His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.

Two of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer just got brand new trailers (on the same day).  With shots of Kirk apologizing to his entire crew for pretty much getting them on the endangered species list, some interesting new views of Krypton, Pike giving Kirk some fatherly advice, and Kal El beating the crap out of Zod, both trailers are a must watch.  Check them out.

The Brand New Man Of Steel Trailer Is Here.


o-MAN-OF-STEEL-POSTER-570

“Man Of Steel” is one of Warner Brothers’ biggest 2013 releases, so it goes to reason that a new trailer for the film will come attached to prints of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.” (Not that you need to enter Middle-earth to see the latest teaser.)  Directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan, “Man of Steel” recalls the oft-recounted origin story for Superman. As the first teasers hinted at, however, this isn’t necessarily your pa’s Man of Steel: Snyder’s film appears to have the earthy look of a Terrence Malick feature mixed with the gravitas of Nolan’s well-regarded Batman trilogy.

Marvel vs. DC Comics – The Battle for 2012.

As many people already know, Captain America signaled the end of the initial Marvel Comics movies period before the Avengers.  (The Avengers is one of the single largest ensemble collaborations between multiple films in the history of cinema… just in case you were doubting how epic this movie will be.)  Recently however, some rather awesome artwork has surface that showcases all the individual heroes of the film.  The Avengers assemble in the summer of 2012, and will undoubted be one of the biggest movies of the year. But just in case you really are unfamiliar with what happens at the end of Captain America, just check the preview below.

Marvel isn’t the only company planning to take over the box office and break records for next year’s summer season, DC Comics is also pouring it on thick with two different super-hero franchises.  The primary looker is ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.  Staring Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, and Anne Hathaway, this is set to be the final chapter in Christopher Noland’s Batman trilogy.

One interesting thing about some of the photos being revealed, and the news on the official website is that Selina Kyle is listed as a character, but ‘Catwoman’ isn’t.  (Selina Kyle is the Catwoman’s true identity in the comics.)  So when the first photos of Anne Hathaway as Selina debuted with her jacking Bruce Wayne’s batpod, it was somewhat evident that she may not take the Catwoman persona at all, she seems to be bad-ass enough without holding a whipe, or putting on the claws.

And the final banger… One that WON’T help tip the box-office battle of 2012 in the favor of DC, (because it drops 2012) is The Man Of Steel. Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have provided the first look at the new Man of Steel, revealing star Henry Cavill as Superman in the film from director Zack Snyder.  The film also stars three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Oscar nominee Laurence Fishburne as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Oscar nominee Diane Lane and Academy Award winner Kevin Costner.  Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Oscar nominee Michael Shannon, and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Julia Ormond, and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Academy Award winner Russell Crowe.  Check the Man of Steel’s first picture below.
