It's just not a movie featuring Bruce Wayne/Batman unless you have the death of Bruce Wayne's parents, thus explaining his mopey origins, is it? Zack Snyder would agree, and so would some new set photos from 'Batman vs. Superman,' which confirm that we will see Thomas and Martha Wayne shot to death yet again, just in case you're not sick of seeing that happen. Seriously? Again? Again-again-again?

ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis.

Batman is a character who comes with multiple vehicles, accessories, and suits -- as a billionaire superhero, it's part of his appeal. And if the latest report is true, we know that one of the Batsuits worn by Ben Affleck in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' will be rather serious business. For fans of Frank Miller's Batman stories -- from which director Zack Snyder is said to have taken some inspiration -- elements of this new suit should excite you.
There's a reason why people have been pretty tight-lipped with 'Batman vs. Superman' details. It seems that everyone, even the extras, face a $5 million lawsuit if they divulge anything at all. But that hasn't stopped one member of the film's background talent, who went to local Detroit news station with some new story details, including the identity of Batman's sidekick, Robin.
Although the bulk of shooting on Zack Snyder's 'Batman vs. Superman' thus far has taken place in Detroit, Michigan, the production has also gotten to work in New Mexico where something big is going down. A large compound of buildings are currently being constructed in a desert environment and fan speculation about what could be going down here has already started to run wild.
We found out a while back that 'Batman v Superman' writer and Ben Affleck pal Chris Terrio would be penning the screenplay for Warner Bros.' upcoming 'Justice League' film, and today comes some potential news about that project and its central villain. Who might DC's superhero super-team be facing off with in Zack Snyder's 'Justice League'?
Gillian Flynn's 'Gone Girl' was a divisive novel upon release in 2012, analyzed and picked apart, often scrutinized and questioned for its depiction of central character Amy Dunne -- was she a "strong female character" or a strong enough female character, and just what the hell does that phrase even mean anymore? It's almost derogatory now. There was perhaps no one better to adapt Flynn's pulpy work than David Fincher, whose film version hits theaters this week and faithfully adapts Flynn's story, serving as an indictment of media vultures and the toxicity of marriage. But it goes one (and even more) further than that, hitting on something imperative to Flynn's novel: how we want to perceive Amy, and how we feel about her as a character when that perception is challenged.
It looks like director Danny Boyle will have to find a new Steve Jobs for his upcoming biopic, as Leonardo DiCaprio has formally exited the project. The actor has backed out to star in another film instead, and now the studio has their eyes on a few replacements, including original choice Christian Bale.
People love watching famous people accept trophies. So, every so often, The Huffington Post’s Chris Rosen and ScreenCrush’s Mike Ryan will speculate about these trophies and which famous person might win one. It will be fun. Let’s talk some trophies! Today, we pick up where we left off last week and continue to discuss why 10 Best Picture nominees isn't working and we discuss the Oscar potential of 'Gone Girl' (which premiered last Friday at the New York Film Festival)
Don’t believe the pre-release speculation – when 'Gone Girl' arrives in theaters this Friday, its original ending is (in spirit, if not exact detail) intact. That’s sure to rankle some of the countless readers who originally objected to Gillian Flynn’s 2012 best-seller on the basis of its conclusion.
