AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

A new still from “Age of Ultron” (posted over at ComicBookMovie) reveals a closer look at the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Infinity Gauntlet.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

In an interview with Larry King, posted early by ComicBook.com, Michael Shannon elaborated just a little more about General Zod’s role in “BvS.” Shannon said again that he would appear in a ghost-like role, and also stated that he won’t share a scene with Batman.

“I did not cross paths with Batman, no,” said Shannon.

Following a rumor that Warner Bros. wanted less Superman and more Batman, director Zack Snyder has clarified exactly how heavily his DC film will skew towards Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight in an interview with The Daily Beast — and why.

“Only in that because it’s a different Batman than the Batman that was in the Chris Nolan movies, so we have a little bit more explaining to do — and you just had a whole Superman movie,” said Snyder. “But I think only in that way, because you need to understand where Batman is with everything. And that’s more toward the beginning, but it evens back out as it goes on.”

Snyder also spoke to the dynamic between the two characters in his film. “They’re actually opposite sides of the same coin,” said Snyder. “It’s interesting because Batman’s a man and Superman’s a god, if you think about it in those terms. So their relationship is very contentious. What Superman sees as Batman’s limits, Batman sees as Superman trying to control him, acting like an absolute dictator.”

“What we went after was the humanity of each character,” continued Snyder. “We tried to say, ‘What would Batman have to do to unravel Superman, and what would Superman have to do to unravel Batman?’ Their conflict is based on each others’ understanding of the other’s weakness. The fun of that is when you’re dealing with these mythological creatures — to make them human again, bring them back to earth. And to do that you have to know the rules before you can break them. They have to go all the way to the stratosphere before you can bring them back down.”

While talking to Yahoo! Movies, Snyder cleared up another rumor regarding Robin and his son in the movie.

“There’s a rumor that my son is [playing] Robin,” Snyder told Yahoo! Movies. “It’s not true. Now there are all these images of him that people have made where he’s dressed like Robin. It’s fun to hear and see them.”

HELLBOY 3

IGN has an interview with Ron Perlman in which the actor once again talks about the much talked about but still not in production “Hellboy 3.”

Perlman clarified that he’s only on board for the role if it’s on film — not television. “Anything’s possible,” said the actor when asked if Hellboy could jump to the small screen. “It won’t be me playing him. The only time I would ever go back to do Hellboy is to do the third and final instalment of the trilogy. Which is why I’ve been yapping away and opening my big fucking mouth on Twitter and all that shit.”

“People encourage me,” continued Perlman. “‘Yeah come on Ron. Be an asshole some more. Come one, come on. You do it so well.’ Guillermo [Del Toro] shared with me what the third and final installment would look like and it’s incredibly theatrical, it’s highly charged, it’s got huge dynamic to it and it’s very cinematic. And on top of that it’s the deal we made with the public by making instalments one and two. Clearly we’re not finished. We’re not finished until we find out whether this guy’s is going to meet his destiny or whether he’s going to find a way to avoid it. So that’s what the third instalment would be and that’s why I got on my soapbox saying ‘We owe it to the fans and it’s essential that we finish this — it’s too good an idea to not do.’ And so I will now shut my mouth and leave it up to the gods and the fates.”

We’ve tried to hire as many female members of the crew as possible.”
