Collider rounded up some pictures and videos from a brawl staged in the real Gotham (New York) for the film. Here’s a video in which Gotham PD joins the fray:
Release date: July 20th, 2012

SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL
Henry Cavill tells The Los Angeles Daily News that the best tactic to deal with online reaction while filming is just to ignore it. “You never know where an opinion’s coming from or why it’s coming in such a way. Sometimes it can affect you, certainly, so you have to be capable of taking everything with a pinch of salt,” he says. “The nice stuff is nice. But it’s like training. When you’re training really, really hard and you’re trying to achieve a certain look for your body, you look in the mirror and you ignore the good stuff because that’s taken care of. It’s only the stuff which you haven’t quite got yet which you’re panicking about. The same goes for any kind of Internet response or public response to a performance or the way I’m coming across.” I guess stick and stones can’t hurt his bones … but words can still smart.
Directed by Zack Snyder, release date: June 14th 2013
Brian Azzarello tells The Los Angeles Times Hero Complex that part of the problem in getting a film off the ground is the often muddled presentation of Diana. “The first Superman movie was [sold on] the fact that he could fly and the special effects were so great – ‘You’ll believe a man can fly,’ that was the tagline. They are kind of these clear niches where they work, Batman in Gotham City and has seriously creepy villains, Superman is in Metropolis and he fights with the smartest man on Earth. With Wonder Woman, I don’t think people know what they would get out of that right now. Lyle Waggoner as Steve Trevor?” I think that’s a fair point.

THE WALKING DEAD
Actor Steven Yeun discusses Glenn’s romantic entanglement with the official AMC blog. “I knew it was coming, but I didn’t know how it was going to come. I remember we just improvised a lot of that scene,” he says. “I wanted it to play as this crazy awkward situation, as it should be: This kid hasn’t had this happen to him and out of nowhere this girl is saying, ‘Let’s do it.’ It should be a beautiful thing because it’s a sweet thing, but it’s also awkward and frightening. I hope that scene captured all those things.”
BACK TO THE WORK WEEK
After a Sunday that turned out pretty relaxed and restful because of the rain, I’m ready to attack the work week with renewed vigor. 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 the week ahead.
