When it was revealed that the sequel to 'Man of Steel' would actually be 'Batman vs. Superman', fans were both excited and concerned. To some, it sounded like the best thing ever. To others, it seemed like desperation after Superman's epic return didn't do 'The Dark Knight'-sized business. However, director Zack Snyder has officially gone on record explaining why the Caped Crusader will be in the film ... and it turns out that he's been thinking about this for awhile.
David Fincher may not be directing a Steve Jobs biopic, but that doesn't mean he isn't keeping busy as his latest film, 'Gone Girl,' hits theaters later this year. The film, which is based on the best selling novel, stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, and now the first 'Gone Girl' trailer has hit the web.
In 1995, Kevin Smith followed up his directorial debut 'Clerks' with the comedy 'Mallrats,' starring Jason Lee and Jeremy London as two nerdy friends who, recently dumped by their girlfriends, spend the day at the local mall trying to win them back. Featuring an ensemble cast of Smith regulars (and a then relatively unknown Ben Affleck in a supporting role), the film wasn't quite a box office success, but went on to become a cult classic following home release. 19 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
The impending end of CBS staple 'How I Met Your Mother' will surely allow stars Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Radnor and Jason Segel to achieve even greater heights than over the past nine years, but fellow series star Alyson Hannigan doesn't mind staying right where she is. The erstwhile Lily has signed on for another CBS pilot 'More Time With Family,' albeit under the impressive producing banner of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
Long before Joss Whedon made the hit TV show 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' he wrote the film of the same name -- released in 1992, 'Buffy' follows Kristy Swanson as the titular heroine, a cheerleader who discovers that it is her destiny to hunt and kill vampires. Co-starring Luke Perry and Donald Sutherland, the film was a moderate success, though it's often forgotten in the shadow of Whedon's wildly popular TV show starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. Twenty-two years later, we take a look back at the cast of this '90s classic and see what they're up to now.
Before Ben Affleck tackles the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder's 'Batman vs. Superman,' shooting later this year, he'll be seen in David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' alongside 'The World's End' star Rosamund Pike. A new look at the film, hitting theaters October 3, has graced the cover of the latest Entertainment Weekly issue, shot by Fincher himself and revealing just how crazy in love (emphasis on crazy) Affleck's character is with his wife.
How little do we actually know about the upcoming 'Batman vs. Superman'? For starters, we don't even know the title and 'Batman vs. Superman' is just what everyone is calling it until we hear something more official. However, we do know that the film will act as a sequel to 'Man of Steel' and will also include the character of Wonder Woman, who will be played by 'Fast and Furious' franchise star Gal Gadot. Recently, producer Wesley Coller talked at length about the production and while he doesn't drop anything new about story details, he did have plenty to say about the Amazonian superhero.
Argued by many to be one of Kevin Smith's best films, 'Chasing Amy' follows the story of comic-book artist Holden (Ben Affleck), who falls in love with lesbian Alyssa, throwing his friendship with his best friend and work partner into upheaval. Released in 1997, the romantic comedy was the third in Smith's "Jersey Tales" series of films and also featured regular stars Jason Lee and Jason Mewes. Sixteen years later, we take a look back at the cast and see where they are now.
Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder have been keeping mum on their upcoming 'Batman vs. Superman' film, despite letting slip that Lex Luthor will pop up as the new villain. With pre-production underway and the recent release of 'Man of Steel' on Blu-ray and DVD, though, stars Henry Cavill (Superman) and Ben Affleck (Batman) have chimed in on what we can expect from the upcoming superhero follow-up.
