September 11, 2015: Michael Shannon Talks About His Role in "Batman v Superman"Print

Zod's Body Michael Shannon created a bit of a stir last month when he not only revealed that he was indeed returning in the role of Zod for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", but that his character had flippers instead of hands. We now know he was joking about the flippers thing, with Shannon later revealing that he had recorded some voiceover dialog for the movie. Seems he's more involved than that though, with Michael Shannon talking more about his role in an interview with Larry King...

"The pressure that I'm under in this situation sometimes leads me to say silly things like 'Zod has flippers'," said Shannon. "It was a false. A red herring, as it were."

But when Larry presses him for more details about who or what his role is in "Batman v Superman" Shannon explains, "It's the same thing like in the first one with Jor-El. Russell Crowe's character is kind of like a ghost. So I guess I'm a ghost, kind of."

Larry King's full interview with Michael Shannon will go live on Ora TV on Monday, September 14.

September 10, 2015: Zack Snyder Talks "Batman v Superman", Rumors and MythologyPrint

Batman v Superman TheDailyBeast.com has published a very interesting interview with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" director Zack Snyder, in which he discusses the launch of the Doritos "Crash the Super Bowl" contest, why Superman and Batman transcend the Superhero movie genre, and those recent rumors about Batman dominating screen time in the upcoming movie.

Here are a few excerpts from the interview...

    "Chris Terrio and I worked on the [Batman v. Superman] script, and he did an amazing job," Snyder said of the March 25, 2016, blockbuster, which pits Affleck's Batfleck against Cavill's Man of Steel and will lead off 10 more planned DC superhero flicks. "It's great fun, but it also has an eye toward the future - it's going toward Justice League. Early on, once we decided that we were going to put Batman in the movie, then I was like, 'OK, good! Because you know what that means? It means the floodgates can open!'"

    "It's a tricky process, setting up the DC universe, or Justice League," Snyder said. "The credit goes to [Batman Begins director] Chris Nolan because he set the die for the DC Universe in a great way that I tried to emulate. I look at it as more being mythological than, say, bubblegum. And I think that that's appropriate for Batman and Superman because they're the most mythological of our superheroes."

Responding again to the idea that Superhero movies will go the way of the Westerns...

    "It goes to the mythological nature of the movies that we're making," he said. "I feel like he's right. But I feel like Batman and Superman are transcendent of superhero movies in a way, because they're Batman and Superman. They're not just, like, the flavor of the week Ant-Man - not to be mean, but whatever it is. What is the next Blank-Man?"

And what about those rumors that Batman will be more prominent in "Batman v Superman" than Superman?

    "Only in that because it's a different Batman than the Batman that was in the Chris Nolan movies, so we have a little bit more explaining to do - and you just had a whole Superman movie," he smiled. "But I think only in that way, because you need to understand where Batman is with everything. And that's more toward the beginning, but it evens back out as it goes on."

September 10, 2015: Superman Mod Coming to "Batman: Arkham Knight"Print

Superman emblem Previous mods for the popular "Batman: Arkham Knight" video game have enabled players to play the game as different characters... but they've really been nothing more than extra skins, and haven't changed gameplay that much.

Now, a preview of an upcoming Superman mod looks like it will change gameplay in a rather drastic way as you get to use Superman's powers... At the moment it looks like you'll definitely be able to fly. What else the mod will contain is unknown at this point in time.

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    What an awful installment. The introduction of an unknown player is theft of Year Three's storyline, and Year Three was a terrible storyline. So unknown figure wants Regime Superman, and of course, no one knows about it because they're all to busy fighting... except the Batman who has created tracers that cannot be detected by gods, and can track otherworldly beings even when they exit to other worlds. However, the pièce de résistance was watching the ludicrous fight between Aquaman and Poseidon. Poseidon, who trumps Aquaman's abilities in every way imaginable, is swallowed by a great white shark... or was that a megalodon? It would fit in this anachronistic tale, perfectly. Regardless, as Poseidon is master of the oceans and all who inhabit it, that would include the shark that swallows him. It would also include Aquaman and Mera. Why he throws punches with either of them is absurd. Somewhere, Odysseus is reeling: "I was beaten about with the full force of the oceans, and that verdigris dandy gets to duke it out? Where's the justice?!" The rest of the story is just etiolated and indolent.

September 9, 2015: Zack Snyder Talks Doritos, "Superhero Fatigue" and MorePrint

Batman v Superman Yahoo! Movies has published an article/interview which reveals that Zack Snyder is involved in the 2015 "Crash the Superbowl" campaign from Doritos, where the lucky winning filmmaker will get to work alongside him on an upcoming Warner Bros./DC superhero movie.

    As he puts the finishing touches on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and preps to unleash chaos on Gotham, Snyder is helping Doritos end its mega-successful Super Bowl advertising campaign with a bang. After ten years and more than 32,000 entries, the addictive Frito-Lay chip is running its last "Crash the Superbowl" campaign, which tasks aspiring filmmakers with making a 30-second commercial inspired by Doritos (last year, a 35-year-old first-time director won the prize).

    This year, fans at home will determine the winning ad, which will air during the Super Bowl. In addition, the lucky (and very talented) filmmaker who created it will get to work with Snyder on the set of an upcoming Warner Bros. and DC superhero movie. The winner will also get a $1 million prize, while the two runners-up will score a cool $100,000 and get to consult on an upcoming Doritos campaign.

Beyond that however, Snyder also spoke about the recent comment by Stephen Spielberg that superhero movies would eventually die off like Westerns have. Here's Snyder's response to that...

    He might not be wrong. I think it puts more pressure on us, the filmmakers, to not just crank out superhero movies for the sake of it. To me, the one thing I love working in the DC universe is that Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman are American mythology. It's not about making a superhero, it's a mythological universe that we live in. That I hope stands the test of time. They stood the test of time. That's hopefully the sort of magic bullet. But who knows what audiences will want in the future.

September 9, 2015: "Supergirl" on CBS Fall Preview SpecialPrint

On the night of Monday, September 7, Jane Lynch hosted the CBS Fall Preview Special on CBS. The special took fans behind the scenes of their new and returning shows premiering this Fall in the U.S., including "Supergirl".

[Here's a YouTube version for anyone outside the USA who can't see the above video]

Supergirl SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El, Superman's (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents' help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later, at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara's days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.

After 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be, on the series premiere of SUPERGIRL, Monday, Oct. 26 (8:30-9:30 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.
