THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Superhero Hype rounded up a few new photos including this intriguing shot:
Is that … a doomsday weapon?
Release date: July 20th, 2012
Hugh Jackman tells The Playlist that the current script is “a little darker and, I think, a little more true to the character.” He goes on to explain, “If you read all of [the Japanese saga] there is a lot of it that is a little disparate and some of it’s got X-Men in it. There’s a wedding and all that. So we take license with that.”
Release date: 2012?
The lads at Comic Book Movie spotted this photo of the Dude in his dead garb:
He’s got six-guns!
Release date: June 28th, 2013
SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL
Toward the end of this video with Indiewire’s Anne Thompson, Michael Shannon talks about the complexity of the script, saying that its “not just fluff.”
Directed by Zack Snyder, release date: June 14th 2013
Latino Review notes that the film’s official Facebook page now features this synopsis for the film: “Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.” Also, they must sync up with “Alien” at the end. Well, at least I assume they will.
Directed by Ridley Scott, release date: 2012
JUSTICE LEAGUE: DOOM
As Spinoff Online reported yesterday, the upcoming DC Animated Original Movie will feature a “Justice League Unlimited” reunion of sorts. Actors Kevin Conroy, Michael Rosenbaum, Susan Eisenberg and Carl Lumbly return to give Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and Martian Manhunter their voices. Tim Daly from “Superman: The Animated Series” also returns as the Man of Steel. Joining the group are Nathan Fillion (playing Hal Jordan for the first time in a “Justice League” project) and Bumper Robinson as Cyborg. Since the film is based on Mark Waid’s “Tower of Babel” story line, I hope they get David Warner to come back one last time and voice Ra’s Al Ghul. His intonation of the word “detective” was always killer.
Release date: TBA
So, I went into my local Blockbuster — yes, I still have one — and exchanged my mail-rental for a disc in the store. It went smoothly and I think I may stay on as a Blockbuster costumer. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya, bracing for the future threat of Netflix’s next alienating move.
