SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL
Henry Cavill tells Collider that he went straight to source when researching the role. “I avoided watching anything which was someone else’s interpretation of the source material. I didn’t go back to the movies and watch them. I didn’t go back to the TV series and watch them. I didn’t want to take that and have that influence my interpretation and my performance of the character,” he explains. “Where the character truly belongs and where the character truly comes from is not from the movies or the TV shows; it’s from the comic books.

Various sites are linking back to this Vulture article which claims Hollywood is “flabbergasted” by the amount of creative control Ubisoft will retain during the creation of the “Assassin’s Creed” film. “To make the deal, Sony had to grant the gaming company approval over just about everything – budget, principal cast, script, release date,” the Vulture reports. The industry insiders they spoke to seemed to believe it will doomed the project … but I think it’s just a lot of naysaying because they don’t want any content owners getting cheeky ideas about involvement. Y’know, it’s not like cooperation with the original creators (“Harry Potter”) or the custodial IP entity (“Iron Man”) has ever been successful.
