Everything about 'Man of Steel,' from the goosebump-inducing trailer to the slew of promotional material, has us psyched to see Superman return to the big screen. And now, as we're nearly a month away from actually seeing this latest reboot of the saga, Warner Bros. has delivered a brand-new 'Man of Steel' poster banner and some inspirational words from our hero's birth father, Jor-El (Russell Crowe).
With 'The Avengers' and 'Iron Man 3,' Marvel now owns the records for the two biggest opening weekends of all-time. They've had an embarrassment of riches with their films and it all started with a plan to lead their superhero properties into one epic franchise. While Warner Bros. has found success with the 'Dark Knight' trilogy, they've had difficulty launching their own epic franchise, 'Justice League.' So what words of advice did Marvel head Kevin Feige have for team Warner Bros.? Time for some unsolicited advice!
'Man of Steel'-ers beware of potential spoilers ahead...
Amidst all of the Superman hype for Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot, hitting theaters June 14, Warner Bros. unleashed a breathtaking trailer a while back that revealed a Lex Luthor Easter Egg, foreshadowing a possible appearance from the Man of Steel's famed rival down the road. But now it looks like we'll get to see another MAJOR DC character teased in 'Man of Steel'... and this one's a superhero.
Everything we've heard about 'Man of Steel' suggests that it will be one of the films to beat this summer, an epic superhero adventure unlike anything else coming out this year. So why isn't the marketing selling that movie? A new banner for the highly anticipated film has arrived and it's just more of the same.
The new 'Man of Steel' poster has dropped faster than a speeding bullet -- eh, you get the idea -- to keep our adrenaline going for the June theatrical debut and frankly...we're thrilled! Seriously, we've seen countless one-sheets for 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' 'Pacific Rim' and the like, so it's about time we saw more from Zack Snyder's Superman reboot.
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.
