Think back to 2002, when Warner Bros. was eager to relaunch the Superman franchise and had J.J. Abrams as the man leading the way. It's almost amazing to think - knowing now that Abrams was practically begged by Lucasfilm to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7' - that Warner Bros. didn't move forward with Abrams' vision for 'Superman' but his 'Flyby' was eventually scrapped and replaced with Bryan Singer's 'Superman Returns' a few years later. Now, as 'Man of Steel' is set to hit theaters this summer, Abrams reveals what his 'Superman' movie would've looked like and what, if anything, it has in common with Zack Snyder's upcoming film.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' has attracted the attention of many actors, from the original cast (who have signed on to return) to even those, like Olivia Munn, who are practically begging for a role. But there's one guy who bold enough to admit he wants no part of the new 'Star Wars' trilogy: Jason Statham.
Between the titular role of 'Dredd' and the iconic portrayal of classic 'Star Trek' character Leonard "Bones" McCoy, Karl Urban needed little help breaking out as a major Hollywood talent.

Abrams has decided to continue his relationship with Urban, tapping the actor for the lead role in forthcoming FOX drama pilot 'Human,' a new high-concept drama of police officers and their android partners. Get an inside look at Karl Urban's new TV role inside!
'Star Trek 3' has been the topic of discussion for a lot of Trekkies, especially now with J.J. Abrams moving over to direct the upcoming 'Star Wars: Episode 7' movie and a certain Enterprise actor or two who said they'd be disappointed if he decides to not return for a third film. With or without Abrams, however, (and it'll probably be with, if only on a production basis) is Paramount already prepping 'Star Trek 3' for 2016?
There's no getting around it: JJ Abrams has transformed the 'Star Trek' franchise into an action series. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is a question the fans can debate in the comments below, but the newest trailer for 'Star Trek Into Darkness' isn't at all shy about showing off the film's galaxy-spanning action.
Well, it might not be that rumored 'Twin Peaks' revival we were so enamored of a few months ago, but it seems Kyle MacLachlan will head to NBC after all. The former 'Twin Peaks' star and recent 'How I Met Your Mother' guest has joined NBC's buzz-worthy J.J. Abrams pilot 'Believe,' but will lightning strike twice for NBC following the success of its other Abrams-produced series 'Revolution?' Find out MacLachlan's new role inside!
'Star Wars: Episode 7' is still in the early stages of development with J.J. Abrams just joining the team a few weeks ago. So what was one of J.J.'s first orders of business after signing on to direct the next 'Star Wars' film? Today we get word that Harrison Ford will return as Han Solo in 'Star Wars: Episode 7.'
'Star Wars: Episode 7' director J.J. Abrams has been met with mostly happy and supportive comments from the 'Star Trek' cast, despite the fact he's leaving their sci-fi cast to start a new trilogy. But one 'Star Trek' star has come out against the idea and says Abrams is "being a pig" for trying to work on two of the biggest franchises in movies.
