SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL
According to Cosmic Book News, there’s a possibility for a Lex Luthor cameo in the film with a surprising actor in the role. “We were told after ‘Paradise Lost’ bottomed out, that Bradley Cooper will appear as Lex Luthor,” they write. Of course, their source is an anonymous tipper, so take this information with a healthy dose of salt.
Directed by Zack Snyder, release date: June 14th 2013
As Spinoff Online reported yesterday, actor Mark Rufallo told The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog what the movie is really about. “You have all these disparate egos, superheroes in this and that, and they refuse to give up some of their positions in order to make a more perfect union and to join the team,” said the actor. “[It’s about] subjugating your own best interest momentarily to further that of the whole.” Meanwhile Reeler Christopher tells me yesterday’s HeroClix spoiler may not necessarily relate to the film. “The very first figure previewed in the Movie Avengers set was a rookie Captain America piece that was from his movie. This was given away by both the bio on the card, and also the names of the powers on the card as they were all lines from the first movie,” he writes. Therefore, the possible second villain may just be included in the set because of his presence in a previous film and not “The Avengers.”
Directed by Joss Whedon & starring everybody, release date: May 4th, 2012

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Collider offers a retraction of their report that the sound mix on the prologue had been altered in a new audio file sent to theaters. “I spoke to a representative from IMAX. They told me that they have not issued a new mix for ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ but some theaters have been sent the digital file that would have been playing on an analogue system,” writes Collider’s Steve Weintraub. “They say this digital delivery does not change the way Bane sounds or any of the background noise. Needless to say, I’m sorry we posted something that appears to be inaccurate. Saying that, I’ve seen the IMAX prologue three times and I still struggle to understand what Bane is saying. It’s a real issue.”
