Confirmed by the WB/DC Zack Snyder to direct not just Batman vs Superman but Justice League also!

That's right I'd like to think we broke the news here a week ago but it's official now. The news broke the WB in a last ditch effort to create some positive news has stepped up, and released the info that they are indeed shooting both movies BATMAN vs SUPERMAN & Justice League back to back.

I have really mixed feelings about this because as much as I'd love to see a Justice League movie I hated Man of Steel, and I'm not at all excited about his Batman vs Superman. Now he's in charge of the entire DCU? This is a major mistake by the WB/DC which could cost them big at the box office.

Here is the official report from Josh Wilding of Comic Book Movie.

According to Latino-Review (who had the scoop on Zack Snyder and Justice League not too long ago), we should expect to see the follow-up to Batman Vs. Superman on May 5th, 2017. While The Wall Street Journal article - which you can find more details on by clicking here - said that the movie wouldn't hit until before 2018, this date would certainly make a lot of sense for Warner Bros.

Firstly, it's an extremely desirable slot, and secondly, it adds a lot of weight to the rumours and speculation that Snyder will shoot Batman Vs. Superman and Justice League back to back. It also keeps DC's own superhero ensemble far awar from Marvel's likely 2018 release for The Avengers 3! The site does point out that this is a rumour as of right now, and cautions not to expect confirmation until Comic-Con.
Well there it is! What do you think? Do you agree with the announcement? Do you think Zack is the right choice? Personally I'm not too happy with knowing he's in charge of Superman, Batman, and JL. This is scary especially coming from the director of Sucker Punch, and the awful Man of Steel movie. WB/DC you have really screwed the pooch on this one.  Anyway drop your comments on the matter below.

Filming to start soon? Trolls annoying Snyder? Well check this out... we don't like to reveal our sources for obvious reasons but the person we got this information from is someone close to the production, and is involved in production meetings with the entire staff. He/She was also involved with the production of Man of Steel.

This person has sent us information in the past, and has never been wrong. This time we are told us here at "The man from krypton: Blogspot" that director Zack Snyder has become some what frustrated with the internet, and how badly each casting has been received by the fans, and online media sources which instead of helping some have joined in the backlash.

He's recently also said to have been very disturbed by what some are calling a super divided  "pro & anti" fans of the movie, and some of the extreme reactions to come out of these people have shocked him. Last thing he wanted was to divide the fans this badly going into this sequel. While the idea to add Batman into the mix was his idea the studio agreed as soon as he mentioned it. He wanted to use his own Batman or bring back Bale but the studio wanted, and pushed for Ben Affleck. After a bit of hesitation he agreed to call Ben, and the rest is now history.

As soon as that casting broke the internet exploded with negativity which really shocked Zack, and while they have seen this before with casting of Batman actors it's never been to this extent. Now while that has died down some each following casting choice has been met with an almost equal amount of hate from fans, and he's really starting to worry about the cast he's put together.

He was heard as saying to Christopher Nolan on a phone call "Too much backlash man. This is F**king crazy." We were told that Zack repeated this to our source, and has said that the reason Chris Terrio was allowed to re write the script is because Snyder had a major issue with what David Goyer handed in to the point that it caused him to have a major panic attack over it.

Apparently the script had more holes than Swiss cheese in it...  The first draft by a new writer Chris Terrio was handed in not long ago, and rumor's are that he seems lost in translation as he's never done a comic book movie before in fact his only real Hollywood film was ARGO.

A good film but one which is not a comic book movie, now can he give us an epic Superman vs Batman movie is the real question? He's also said publicly that he's not a big Superman fan or Batman for that matter. He's doing this because Ben asked him to help clean up the mess left by Goyer. But make no mistake he was Ben Affleck's idea to bring on board, and since the WB wanted Ben so badly they agreed to bring in Chris without questioning his writing history.

He's not very experienced, and from the sounds of the feed back my insider has got the reason the production was pushed back to when it was had everything to do with how bad the original script was, and how bad Chris touched up script was that's when the WB asked him to start from scratch all over again. This is where Wonder Woman became involved. That was Chris Terrio's idea... Which as we know that casting didn't go well and only added to the negative backlash by fans. But with all the casting don't be shocked if they announce sometime soon a J.L movie also in the works. We're told they will announce that pretty soon.

There is a lot of tension also between Ben and Zack who are at odds with part of the story. With one outburst over heard by Snyder saying to Ben "Ben why don't you star in it, write it, and direct it yourself if your going to bitch about everything." Some say all the backlash has gotten to Ben and he's scrambling to make sure this isn't another Daredevil which is what we all fear. This is why there is now growing tension between him and Snyder.

Also the footage shot at the football stadium will not be used that whole scene is now gone from the film and it cost the WB close to 15 Million to make. They are not happy knowing they blew that much on a set of scenes which are now voided from the script. I was told the scene was cut because it was to close to what was done on Dark Knight Rises.

The movie might start production within the next few weeks and they will be shooting, and writing as they go since the script isn't finished, and neither is the cast the movie is still in pre production, and new cast members will be announced shortly.

One thing Snyder has said was that he was made aware of trolls on the internet who have been getting into wars online over the movie both to defend it, and some to trash it so both side of equation. He's disturbed by it, and even thought about not directing the movie because he was disturbed at some of the videos sent to him.

One person in a video who looks like he's of middle eastern descent with clear mental issues was seen trashing the producer of Man of Steel himself Christopher Nolan in every video he saw and than praising Snyder and the movie Man if Steel.

Which makes no sense he told our source since Nolan of course is the main reason why MAN OF STEEL got made to start with.

Nolan is also executive producer of this follow up movie, while his role this time will be less than on the first film this is normal but he will still be involved with the film.

Remember Christopher Nolan was the man who had the idea which ended up being scripted by David Goyer in the first place. How anyone can hate Nolan but love Man of Steel? This is beyond us all really, and any sort of logic.

But for now it seems like Ben Affleck's choice of writer Chris Terrio has looked like some what of a bust or a Fish out of water. But Ben and the WB have enough faith in him that they will get it together some how, and has said that if he can't come up with a good script the whole production could be doomed since Goyers script was panned by everyone involved.

We promise to keep you updated if anything further develops on the films production, and if anymore problems are reported to us by our source.

Who would win in a fight, Superman or Iron Man?
“Iron Man 2” easily beat the box office competition this weekend, but if it came down to a real fight, could Iron Man take on the Man of Steel? We asked America, and America answered.

Will The real Superman please stand up!

So I get my mail today, and I see this link sent to me by my good friend who says "Hey Check out the real face of Superman!" So I click on the link, and I see this...

 The real Superman
(morph between Reeve, Cain, Welling, Routh, and Cavill)!EV9kA
Looks like they also did Batman, James Bond, Spiderman, and Rachael Dawes for some odd reason.
Now looks like a lot of Tom Welling was used there but the dude sure does look the part. lol Now I know this is a "morph" trick but maybe for the next reboot if Man of Steel tanks they could have a casting call looking for this face. Maybe have this spread all over the net now to get him ready. 
Cool trick either way.. What are your thoughts?

Check out the others here.

The New Man of Steel Trailer is Now Online!

Well the trailer does look like this movie will have a more "serious, and realistic" tone to it. Some elements in the trailer look great, and some look terrible. IMO But I won't bore you with my opinions I'll just let you see it for yourself.

Following the viral countdown, Warner Bros. Pictures has now revealed the new trailer for Zack Snyder's Superman movie, Man of Steel. Check it out in the player below!

In the June 14, 2013 release, Henry Cavill plays Superman. The film also stars Amy Adams as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Laurence Fishburne as her editor-in-chief, Perry White.

Starring as Clark Kent's adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Diane Lane and Kevin Costner. Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and Faora, Zod's evil partner, played by Antje Traue.

Also from Superman's native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman's mother, played by Ayelet Zurer, and Superman's father, Jor-El, portrayed by Russell Crowe. Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.

New Image of Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel

Over on they posted the following new image of Man of Steel Henry Cavill taken from the Magazine "Studio Ciné Live." Don't know about you but the new suit just isn't growing on me at all when the blue looks so dark. But I've seen some other photos, and the lighting is better, and it looks much better. The yellow looks like it's dirty or dirty yellow. Weird. Anyway check out the picture. The trailer coming soon!
Henry Cavill has landed on the cover of Studio Ciné Live magazine in his Superman outfit. The cover made its way online today and you can check it out below! Directed by Zack Snyder, the film also stars Amy Adams as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Laurence Fishburne as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent's adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Diane Lane and Kevin Costner. Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and Faora, Zod's evil partner, played by Antje Traue.

Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy. Man of Steel is coming to 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on June 14.

I found this picture of Henry Cavill next to director Zack Snyder on the site.

WOW This is pretty lame indeed... Personally I'm not feeling the new look.


Man of Steel get's it's new Perry White!

Lois Lane and Clark Kent just got their boss: Laurence Fishburne will play Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White in Man of Steel, we have learned.

White has traditionally been an old white man who was a hard-charging, old fashioned newspaperman, who relies on his ace reporters, Clark and Lois, to get the big scoop. Jackie Cooper played White in the Christopher Reeve-era Superman films, and Frank Langella took on the role in director Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns in 2006... This is about the only decent casting in this movie thus far.

Are fans really going to boycott the new DCU Reboot?

If you follow the group "Boycott the DC Reboot" on facebook you would think that it might happen! As you know the DCU is being rebooted after the flashpoint, and they are restarting Beginning on Aug. 31, every major DC comic will be going back to issue #1. Major characters' costumes will be altered, their backstories changed and the entire DC universe will never be the same.

According to DC's press release:
"This year, change is in the air at DC Comics.  On Wednesday, August 31st, DC Comics will launch a historic renumbering of the entire DC Universe line of comic books with 52 first issues, including the release of JUSTICE LEAGUE by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and bestselling artist and DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee.

The publication of JUSTICE LEAGUE issue 1 will launch day-and-date digital publishing for all these ongoing titles, making DC Comics the first of the two major American publishers to release all of its superhero comic book titles digitally the same day as in print.

DC Comics will only publish two comic books on August 31st: the final issue of this summer's comic book mini-series FLASHPOINT and the first issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE by Johns and Lee, two of the most distinguished and popular contemporary comic book creators, who will be collaborating for the first time. Together they will offer a contemporary take on the origin of the comic book industry's premier superhero team.

In the hours, days and weeks to come, we'll have more news about the other titles. Tomorrow, we'll hear from Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee about this momentous occasion. Keep checking THE SOURCE for updates about the other first issues.
This year, make history with us."
Big words. But why now? What's the use? And is this causing fans to actually boycott the DCU?

On the facebook page the group has posted this...
Why they have the right to do this to us. The "MAN" thinks is going to make them money,but we know its a big FU to our face. We should not take this BS. We should fight. I know what you guys are going to say you will not win. Its a lost cause. You know your maybe right, but I want to see if I can do something about this.
 But when looking around I found that this isn't the only group! There are others like... "Boycott Starting Over DC Comics" and "The Reboot? WTF?" so this leads me to ask the question! Will this change the minds at the heads of the DCU/WB? Or will sales themselves start to change their minds? If the later is what might change their minds then the 30% decrees in sales since the reboot was announced might be cause for concern.

In all honesty this reboot is not needed, and it's stupid... You want to make these characters more relevant? Or you want the readers to buy more comics? Well here is a simple solution. Put out better quality material.

But honestly nobody wants to see Action Comics rebooted to number 1 again! There can only be one number 1, and this is a big mistake by the DCU. The backlash it's having should tell them that the fans don't want this reboot.

Let's hope they listen to the fans for once... lol As I type that I laugh because they will never listen to the fans.

Sad but true...
