‘Man Of Steel 2’ May Be Put On Permanent Hold
  |  @   |  

Last week brought news that Mad Max: Fury Road‘s George Miller was rumored to be in talks to direct Man of Steel 2. Of course given how close the filmmaker was to directing a Justice League film back in the in the late 2000s, it was long overdue. And perhaps Fury Road‘s success convinced WB that the director deserved such an honor. However, there was no mention of a sequel during SDCC, and the film isn’t officially scheduled for a release, tentative or otherwise. Still Warner Bros. may be waiting to see how successful Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad are before they confirm anything, which makes sense.

However, there is a new report saying that WB may actually be putting Man of Steel 2 on a permanent hold. More on the story below.

From Fury Road To Metropolis: George Miller Could Direct ‘Man Of Steel 2’
  |  

Warner Bros. is proceeding carefully with their plans for a shared cinematic universe based around their DC Comics properties (a lot of which rides on next March’s release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) to compete with the unassailable Marvel Studios. They had originally planned a sequel to 2013’s Superman reboot Man of Steel to kick off the summer of 2018, but the tentatively-titled Man of Steel 2 was taken off the roster as James Wan’s Aquaman moved into position as Warner/DC’s big 2018 summer tentpole release. Meanwhile, a solo Batman reboot starring Ben Affleck has been dated for November of that year.

Unlike Marvel Studios’ blockbuster line-ups, which are usually set in stone but remain subject to the occasional alteration, the DC Comics Shared Cinematic Universe release schedule appears to be in constant flux. Even though Man of Steel 2 is not in active development at Warner Bros. for the moment, that can always change, and fast.

DC Rumors: Batman Solo Movie; Chris Pine As One Of Two Green Lanterns
  |  

The usually reliable Latino Review is reporting on some interesting new rumors surrounding Warner Brothers’ long-term plans for the expanded cinematic universe it is creating based on DC Comics’ stable of iconic superheroes.

The first is that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck will possibly both direct and star in The Batman, a reboot of the Dark Knight franchise. His Oscar-winning Argo scribe Chris Terrio (who also worked on the scripts for Dawn of Justice and the studio’s Justice League feature — the latter of which will be released in two parts with the first tentatively scheduled for a late 2017 release and the second for the summer of 2019) will write the script for a possible November 2018 theatrical release. This would put the most popular DC character in direct conflict with Marvel Studios’ eagerly awaited Captain Marvel, which will be their first female-headed blockbuster event.

  |  

Almost two weeks ago, director Zack Snyder tweeted out two character posters for a special Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice IMAX event. They featured both the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight’s faces obscured by each other’s character logos with the year 2016 right dead in the center.

A variant of the Batman character poster has been released that gives us our first clear look at Ben Affleck decked out in the classic cape and cowl of Gotham’s nocturnal vigilante. You can check it out here below.

‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Teaser Trailer Officially Released
  |  

Well, that was fast. Warner Bros. Pictures has planned to unveil the long-awaited teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on Monday following the premiere of 15 minutes of footage on select IMAX screens across the country. Then the trailer would debut online and
be attached to screenings of Mad Max: Fury Road.

That was the initial plan anyway, but following the unanticipated leak of the trailer yesterday, the studio has apparently (and wisely) decided to grant it an official release a few days ahead of schedule.

You can check it out in glorious high-definition here below.
