ZACK SNYDER TO DIRECT, CO-WRITE SUPERMAN/BATMAN FILM STARRING HENRY CAVILL [SDCC 2013]
Saturday’s Warner Bros. Pictures panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego concluded in grand fashion, with Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill (Superman) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) joining him on stage to announce the team’s intention to produce a film featuring both Superman and Batman. No title or other information was revealed besides the fact that it will star Cavill and the displaying of a teaser graphic and Lennix’s reading of Frank Miller’s immortal words from the famous Superman/Batman fight at the climax of his The Dark Knight Returns:
I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years to come…in your most private moments…I want you to remember…my hand…at your throat…I want…you to remember…the one man who beat you.

The August 24 release of the new, live-action Gatchaman (aka Battle of the Planets/Eagle Riders for many fans of the anime’s various English dubs over the years) from director Toya Sato movie is creeping ever closer (for fans in Japan, at least), which can only mean one thing: Trailers!
Two new ones, in fact, which also offer fans a quick listen to the movie’s new theme song from the band Bump of Chicken.
Superman is not like other heroes. He’s not only among the first, and the one who defined the genre; he’s also the best. I mean that in a moral sense. Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel’s creation, as we understand him today and as he exists in the cultural lexicon, is the ideal of heroic virtue. That perception may change following the success of Zack Snyder’s new movie Man of Steel.

After some uncertainty about Robert Downey Jr.'s return for The Avengers 2 and subsequent Iron Mansequels, Marvel confirmed today that the actor will once again play Tony Stark…at least two more times.
Last month, as Iron Man 3 raked in more than $1 billion worldwide, Downey balked at the idea of returning for another Shellhead sequel. Perhaps he still is? The movies he has signed on for are Avengers 2 and Avengers 3.
Director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer had to convince Nolan (also the director and co-writer of The Dark Knight trilogy) that the controversial moment was the way to go. Read the whole, spoiler-filled story and hear it in podcast form after the jump.
