Comic-Con: ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’

Despite a release date that’s almost two years from now, DC Comics had to have something to show at Comic-Con or Marvel would walk right over them even more than they already are, so Zack Snyder showed up on Saturday and amazingly put up a fight by dropping an official photo of Wonder Woman’s costume

Zack Snyder Made Superman A Sith. Of Course.

For reasons known only to Zack Snyder, Henry Cavill, and Ben Affleck dressed like Princess Leia (not pictured), here’s Superman holding a lightsaber which Zack Snyder oddly tweeted last night along with the hashtag #SuperJedi because the man responsible for the DC Cinematic Universe doesn’t even know the difference between a Jedi and a Sith.

Holy Crap, It’s Superman! In The Same Exact Costume As The Other Movie

Following Batfleck and the constant barrage of casting news because they’re shoving 800 superheroes in this thing (Blue Beetle, anyone?), it’s been way too easy to forget about Henry Cavill despite his character’s name being one of the 20 words in the title. So to fix all that, Warner Bros. released the first official image

Holy Shit, The New ‘Man of Steel’ Trailer

After The Dark Knight Rises made Batman into a wiener, I’m really trying not to get my hopes up for superhero movies based on how kickass their trailers are, but Jesus-fuck, this new one for Man of Steel made me feel like your mom in the middle of a Renegade marathon, and I’m talking the…

WEEKEND NERDIOR: ‘Man of Steel’ Edition

It may be a beautiful spring Sunday outside, but fresh air is the enemy and I’ll be goddamned if I’m about to let its invigorating aroma stop me from talking about Superman on the Internet. Also, there might be bees. Anyway, let’s jump right into this week’s edition of Weekend Nerdior where apparently it’s DC…

So Christian Bale Might Be In ‘Justice League’

Until today the conventional wisdom was that Warner Bros.’ lack of confidence in Man of Steel caused them to toss out the script for Justice League and adopt a wait-and-see plan before shamelessly copying The Avengers. Except now Latino Review claims (above) that the radio silence is from locking down a deal with Christopher Nolan

Jimmy Olsen’s A Girl In ‘Man of Steel’

Because staging school shootings to steal our guns and making Perry White black apparently isn’t enough for Obama, Jimmy Olsen will reportedly be “Jenny Olsen” in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. And you don’t need me to say that’s PC bullshit because everyone knows comic creators had perfectly good reasons for making all their characters…

Henry Cavill Is Your Lady Porn Of The Day

Someone once told me that chicks dig dudes who are great with kids. Then again, in this post-Sandusky America, that advice sounds a little sketchy, so maybe I shouldn’t have let that guy watch that day care for me while I went rafting with Tom and Huck. Anyway, here’s Henry Cavill arriving in Vancouver yesterday…

Superman Doesn’t Like Shirts

Here’s Henry Cavill filming scenes for Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel which apparently features a homeless Superman who’s not afraid to let poverty stop him from daily physical exercise, so I guess that counts as more “dark and edgy.” Although personally I’d like to see more cutting people with tin cans action. I like…

Who Likes Their Superman Extra Bulgy?

God, I hope this is in 3D… I mean, who said that?
Following this summer’s trend of filming blockbusters in clear view of the paparazzi, here are shots of Henry Cavill on the set of Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel which we can now say with throbbing accuracy is red underwear-free. (Which, yes, I…

Henry Cavill is Dressed Like Superman, Have You Heard?

If you logged onto this global porn delivery device we call the “Internet” today, you’ve probably been buffeted in the face with this first image of Henry Cavill as Superman in the Zack Snyder eventual clusterfuck Superman: Man of Steel. So here’s that image again because I’m dedicated to exciting, fresh content which is why…

Russell Crowe is Superman’s Dad.
The Other One.

“Now, hear me out. If you apply Kryptonite to the tip, you should be able to make the cut.”
Keeping with the Hollywood tradition of casting once-handsome actors turned comically obese as Superman’s space dad, Russell Crowe will reportedly play Jor-El in Zack Snyder’s reboot, according to Variety:
Christopher Nolan had all along been seeking…

Lindsay™ Might Be in Superman

If you consider “sources close to Lindsay Lohan” to be someone besides her mom talking in a fake British accent, apparently she’s is talks to star in Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel, according to RadarOnline:
“Lindsay plans to return from New York on Wednesday and meet with producers and read with an actor who…

Amy Adams is Lois Lane

Plucky (Why did I just write that?) Oscar nominee Amy Adams has been cast as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel which is apparently still happening despite Sucker Punch eating a giant dick, according to almost universal consensus. The LA Times reports:
“There was a big, giant search for Lois,” Snyder said.

Truth, Justice and Sexual Harassment

Via Nerdist, here’s an awesome rendering of Don Draper himself Jon Hamm as Superman which I’m posting entirely because I’m a huge fucking dork and it’s my birthday. On that note, don’t be surprised if there’s a delayed start tomorrow morning. Not that I’ll be out “winning” tonight in the Charlie Sheen sense of the…

Henry Cavill is Superman

Back when Bryan Singer was getting ready to bore the world to tears by paying homage to Christopher Reeve via a flying, gay Jesus in tights, British actor Henry Cavill (The Tudors) made it to the final round of casting only to be passed over for Brandon Routh which worked out for the best considering…
