Who can forget last summer, when the might Marvel vs. DC war raged on throughout the summer as fanboys feverishly debated whether 'The Avengers' or 'The Dark Knight Rises' was better. We're not sure that was fully settled but the Marvel vs. DC battle lied mostly dormant in the past few months. That is, until now, when 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder threw down the gauntlet with some harsh words for his competitors at Marvel. Find out what he said and let us know if you agree.
There have been rumors that 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder and Ruben Fleischer ('Zombieland') were frontrunners to direct Warner Bros. planned 'Justice League' movie. Today, we spoke with Fleischer about those rumors and asked about whether he still has his eyes set on 'Justice League' he revealed he's no longer in the running. And why? Because he says Snyder already has the job.
You might think Zack Snyder is keeping busy, what with post-production on 'Man of Steel' and the latest trailer hitting today, but he broke a near six-month Twitter silence to tweet the debut of the first poster for '300: Rise of an Empire.' And the image definitely makes it look like the last movie, and that it is proud of its producer.
This is the trailer you've been waiting for!
The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly contains a sizable 'Man of Steel' feature, as well as Henry Cavill's Superman on the cover. Best of all, the mag is bringing us seven new images from the film, including looks at Zod (Michael Shannon) and Jor-El (Russell Crowe); you can see the whole batch after the break!
Though there hasn't been much to go on when it comes to Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' (it feels like the biggest leaked information came from the toy sets), what's been released so far suggests the film will feature a lot of soul searching, and an emo-Superman who's torn between two fathers. Recently footage was screened, and it turns out they're saving all the big spectacle for later.
One of summer 2013's biggest question marks is 'Man of Steel.' There's a lot riding on this picture for Warner Brothers (who wants to be competitive in the Superhero genre), and for Zack Snyder (who's coming off of a misfire and an out-and-out flop). We're hoping for the best, and we're cautiously optimistic after seeing the film's first TV spot.
