As we prepare to watch Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we have forty high-resolution photos for you to check out. Many of these images are new, but there are others that we’ve already seen. There’s no doubt that this movie will blow us away with its incredible visuals, and from what I’ve seen and heard, it seems like the story will be just as strong.
When talking to the LA Times, Ben Affleck talked about his first scene in the film and said that it is something out of a horror movie:
"Exactly. It’s like out of Se7en or Aliens or something, which is a really different vibe. My son still watches the Adam West Batman [TV series]. It’s a far cry from where it started."
In a separate interview with Today Online, Zack Snyder says that Wonder Woman isn’t in that much of the movie, but he does promise that she has the coolest moments in the movie:
"The one thing that Wonder Woman does get the opportunity to do, because she’s not as deeply intertwined in the story, is the cool stuff. Like when you just get to show up and be cool, that’s pretty much what she gets to do."
The movie will be unleashed on March 25th, and it seems like the excitement for it is electrifying.
Artist Brianna Cherry Garcia is the creator of series of fan art that mashes up Marvel’s Loki, Thor, and a few Disney Princesses with the same design of Disney’s classic Gargoyles cartoon. It takes a pretty hardcore Disney fan to think of this combination of properties. As you can see, they turned out pretty cool.
Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead, Colony) was recently officially set to reprise her role as Dr. Sara Tancredi in Fox’s upcoming Prison Break revival series. She will join returning stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell in the event. As a fan of this show, it’s great to see that the old gang is getting back together again for another crazy on-the-run survival adventure.
We will be treated with nine episodes in the upcoming Prison Break limited series, and there are still other cast members in negotiations to come back. Other returning cast members include Robert Knepper as T-Bag, Rockmond Dunbar as C-Note, and Amaury Nolasco as Sucre.
The original Prison Break series focused on Michael (Miller) who entered a prison to attempt to break out his convicted brother Lincoln (Purcell). He came up with a very elaborate plan that worked.
This new chapter of the story “picks up after Michael’s apparent death, Sara has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband. When clues surface suggesting that Michael may be alive, Sara teams with Lincoln to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever.”
This is exciting! I can’t wait to see how this story unfolds.
Here’s a comical piece of art created by Cynthia “Thea” Rodgers for The Line is Drawn art challenge that features all of the male Justice League team members being forced to wear difference versions of Wonder Woman’s costume. It’s titled, “If I Don’t Get Pants, Nobody Does”, and Aquaman’s reaction to it is perfectly hysterical.
The greatest Batman movie of ALL TIME (according to Tyler) is featured on this episode of The 5Cast! Batman v Superman now, but Batman Forever forever.

Looks like a Superbad reunion is brewing. THR reports that Emma Stone and Jonah Hill (who both got their big breaks in the Greg Mottola-directed comedy) are set to star in a new TV series for Beasts of No Nation director Cary Fukunaga, who made a big splash directing all of the episodes of the first season of HBO's critically acclaimed True Detective.
Described as a dark comedy that's based on a 2014 Norwegian series called Maniac, the show "revolves around Espen, a mental patient at the psychiatric ward who escapes reality and lives in a fantasy world in his mind." The search for a writer is underway, and the plan is for Fukunaga to direct every episodes of this show, which is hoping to snag a two-season pickup right out of the gate. Stone and Hill would executive produce alongside the director.
Here's the trailer for the Norwegian version. It's easy to see how Fukunaga could contrast some stunning visuals with the depressing interiors of a psych hospital:
THR is reporting that Steven Spielberg has hired writer David Koepp to pen the screenplay for the recently-announced Indiana Jones 5, which is set to be released in theaters on July 19, 2019. Koepp's filmography is all over the place, with films like Jurassic Park, The Shadow, Mission: Impossible, Stir of Echoes, Spider-Man, Secret Window, War of the Worlds, Premium Rush, and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit among his many credits.
Also among his credits: Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which is a huge red flag for this upcoming movie. The only thing that gives me a little bit of hope is that George Lucas reportedly won't be involved in this one, and it was famously Lucas's idea to include aliens in that fourth entry — a decision Spielberg and Harrison Ford both resisted for years before ultimately giving in. At this point, no one knows whether Koepp will be generating a totally new idea on his own here, or whether he'll be working from a treatment or outline that already exists.
I guess it could be worse. At least it's not Akiva Goldsman.
Daredevil's second season hit the streaming service today, and after viewers wrap up the very last episode, the Luke Cage teaser begins to autoplay. Netflix subscribers can watch the teaser right here. If you're not a subscriber, it's quick enough for me to describe it for you:
Cage walks into a gym filled with gun-toting thugs and says "I guess you guys haven't heard about me" before they open fire, blasting him and everything around him with bullets. Cage, of course, is unfazed, and when the shooting stops, he says, "I'm about sick of always having to buy new clothes." Then one of the thugs goes crashing through a window, and the logo comes up on screen. EW helpfully created some gifs of the teaser:
Luke Cage is set to premiere on September 30, 2016.
