    'Man Of Steel' Villainess To Be Faora?

    As you might recall, a couple of months ago a whole batch of names -- including Alice Eve, Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike -- were tipped as candidates for a mysterious female lead role that was not Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel." Well, word quickly dropped off -- and while guesses ranged ...

    Michael Shannon Cast As General Zod In Zack Snyder's 'Superman' Now Officially Titled 'Man Of Steel'

    We'll be goddamned if Zack Snyder isn't doing everything in his power to scrub the ugly, ugly memory of "Sucker Punch" out of our minds. He's got a world of expectation on his shoulders for the upcoming "Superman" reboot but with each casting announcement, we can't help but get more and more excited...

    Rumor Patrol: ‘Prometheus’ & ‘Superman’ Spoiled?

    Movie websites become desperate for page views. As a result, rumors take flight and somehow get upgraded briefly to "truth" before the filmmakers can sort out the misinformation. Lately, however, a spate of big releases have been playing a lengthy game of chicken with film websites, the suggestion b...

    Henry Cavill Calls 'Superman' A "Mega Opportunity"; 'Immortals' Producer Happy For Extra Attention

    Henry Cavill is going to be facing the media gauntlet in the run-up to "Superman" and it will be unlike anything the actor has experienced before. With the production likely to be kept tightly under wraps -- with Christopher Nolan producing, the film will probably face the same levels of secrecy as his own movies -- Cavill will quickly have to learn the game of answering questions but not giving away the surprises that Zack Snyder has in store. And from his first press rounds for "Immortals" at WonderCon, the actor seems to be a quick study. We caught up with the actor -- along with the rest of cast -- who were meeting with press for Tarsem's...

    Amy Adams Is The New Lois Lane In 'Superman'

    After shacking up with Batman's brother in "The Fighter," Amy Adams is set to become Superman's dame. According to the L.A. Times, Zack Snyder has found his Lois Lane for the upcoming "Superman" project slated for a late 2012 release, and it's Oscar nominee Adams, who will step into the iconic workaholic high heels. If the rumors are to be believed (and not all of them are), Adams beat out less-pedigreed competition in Kristen Stewart, Jessica Biel, Rachel McAdams, Malin Ackerman, Dianna Agron, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Amanda Seyfried, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Lindsay Lohan, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Abe Vigoda, Bristol Palin, Justin B...

    Weekend Box Office: Zack Snyder & Warners Get 'Sucker Punch' From 'Wimpy Kid'

    Demographics matter. You want to say, well, screw the numbers, let’s just make a movie for everyone! But considering the multiple sources of entertainment in our multimedia worlds, whatever doesn’t automatically turn us on will turn us off. Because of this, Zack Snyder’s “Sucker Punch” turned people off. It was an action fantasia, a genre normally attractive to teenage boys, but it featured only girls, an immediate turnoff for that demographic. And it didn’t appeal to women, who noticed the marketing campaign centered around cacophonous violence and mayhem, not usually a drawing point for females. It wasn’t made for kids, but the heavily-CGI’...

    Too Romantic? Bryan Singer Made 'Superman Returns' For The 'Devil Wears Prada' Crowd?

    Ahh, "Superman Returns," the prickly, uncomfortable thorn in the comic book movie geek's side. Far better than say, half of the 20th Century Fox films -- "Daredevil," "Elektra," "Fantastic Four," "Ghost Rider" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" -- or half the super hero movies ever made including "Punis...

    Edgar Ramirez Being Sought For A Villain Role In 'Superman'?

    After an early bout of casting rumors around Zack Snyder's upcoming "Superman," the cord has quickly been tightened around the film, employing Christopher Nolan levels of secrecy (and no surprise really, given he's overseeing the project). In fact the only real concrete news of late is that Kevin Co...
