Cavill Conservation On August 6 Henry Cavill returned home to the island of Jersey in the Channel Islands to visited Durrell Wildlife Park to meet Lee Durrell and the team. Watch the video below to see why Henry loves Durrell.

"I'm enormously proud to be part of a team that makes such a huge positive impact on the world. Durrell is an organisation with a mission I can really get behind. I feel that saving the diversity of life on our planet will be seen as increasingly important in the not-too-distant future.

August 7, 2014: "Batman v Superman" Car Chase FilmedPrint

Preparation and filming for a car chase scene continued to take shape in dowtown Detroit around Griswold, Fort and Congress streets today for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

    There were plenty gawkers and plenty security folks and production assistance with headphone sets telling people not to videotape or take photos during actual scenes. Not everyone listened.

    One scene included a security vehicle zipping out of the alley between the Ford and Penebscot buildings on Griswold. Spectators were enthralled.

    The film crews and security did a lot of standing around between short filming scenes. Ben Affleck was nowhere to be seen, but there were rumors that he might be on the set tomorrow.

    Crews are expected to return to the area on Friday and Saturday.

August 7, 2014: Young Justice to Return in "Teen Titans GO!"Print

Young Justice Fans of the animated TV series "Young Justice" will be thrilled to hear that their favorite young superheroes will return... if only briefly... for an appearance on the current animated series "Teen Titans GO!".

    We received word back from Warner Bros Animation, who made this 100% official - yes, Young Justice will be on an episode of Teen Titans GO! this year. While they couldn't reveal too much just yet, we did get the official logline (description) of the episode, and it sounds like they're directly addressing the considerable difference in tone between the two series.

    "After being scolded by the superhero team from Young Justice for their silliness and hijinks, the Titans decide to get more serious about superheroing."

We'll keep you posted on when this episode is scheduled to air on Cartoon Network.

A fundraising page at JustGiving.com has been set up for fans to make donations to the cause, with the following personal message from Henry Cavill himself...

    Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page and donating to my charity The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.

    I chose to support this charity, not only because of my obvious familial connection, but because of the deep respect I have for the Royal Marines as men and as a corps.

    I am taking a short break from filming to run, with 350 other participants, from Casemates Square to the 1,300ft summit of the Rock of Gibraltar.

August 7, 2014: "Batman v Superman" Filming Forces Temporary Street and Business ClosuresPrint

Dawn of Justice The Detroit Free Press outlines some of the business and street closures that have come about to make way for more filming taking place in downtown Michigan this week and early next week.

    Downtown offices are making adjustments for the filming. According to a Comerica spokeswoman, the Michigan headquarters on Lafayette and the bank branch at Fort and Washington will keep normal business hours. The branch’s Fort entrance will be closed starting Thursday and is expected to reopen Monday. Customers are asked to use the Washington entrance in the interim.

    A parking lot opposite the Theodore Levin U.S. Courthouse on Lafayette had signs Wednesday saying it was closed by police order. It contained a few trucks and about five giant wind fans. A spokesman for the U.S. District Court said the Fort entrance will be closed starting Thursday and through the end of the week.

    At PenzDetroiT on Fort, owner Alex Lebarre said his fine pens and business case store is just outside the closed filming zone. He predicted some workers inside the closed streets might decide to take Thursday or Friday off.

    The trail of hints that shooting is brewing included accumulating traffic cones, extra security guards, a parking lot closed by police orders, and so on.

    Indications are that the portion of downtown bordered roughly by Lafayette and Jefferson and Cass and Griswold will be the zone of interest starting Thursday and running through the weekend.

August 6, 2014: "Batman v Superman" Moves to March 25, 2016Print

Dawn of Justice Reports are that Warner Bros. has moved the release date of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" from May 6, 2016 up to March 25, 2016.

The move may well have something to do with the apparent clash over the May release date with the third "Captain America" film, although a source within Warner Bros. told The Wrap, "Not flinching - it's a fantastic corridor for us".

Warner Bros. will also release the film in 3D.

Warner Bros. also announced dates for nine untitled DC Comics films between 2016 to 2020.

August 6, 2014: Filming a Bruce Wayne Rescue Sequence for "Batman v Superman"Print

Dawn of Justice Footage of yesterday's filming for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in the Corktown district of Detroit has been posted online, captured by fan Samuel Otten, who explains what was going on there throughout the day...

    "Several Bruce Wayne stand-in's and stunt doubles were on set today. You can see them blocking out a scene involving the rescue of a small girl and the collapsing of a large piece of the Wayne Financial building. Based on city buses and police cars, this is presumed to be in Metropolis, not Gotham. I don't know that any of these are Ben Affleck himself, but you can be the judge. Probably him in the first sequence, but definitely not the later ones. At the very least, it's Bruce Wayne."

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will be released to theatres on May 6, 2016.
