Zack Snyder reveals Jason Momoa as Aquaman for “Dawn of Justice/Justice League”…

Here is what former “Game of Thrones” star Jason Momoa looks like as Aquaman for the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “The Justice League” films.

I love it! Zack definitely knows what he’s doing. To be honest, Jason still looks like his “Game of Thrones” character, Khal Drogo but meaner and tougher!!!

Can’t wait for “Dawn of Justice”!!!!

Finally, “Supergirl” is getting another chance in Hollywood but to the small screen for now…

I remember seeing the 1984 “Supergirl” film starring Helen Slater who played Supergirl (as pictured above). I thought the “Supergirl” film with Helen Slater was great but sadly that franchise only lasted for one film ’cause it was a box office failure. Still a great film, though. I thought Helen Slater was an awesome Supergirl.

Finally this character is getting another chance. Not on the big screen but the small screen. An actress hasn’t been hired for the new Supergirl yet.

I really like the Supergirl character and hopes she makes her way back on the big screen sometime in the future. Maybe she will if this TV series is a hit???

I remember NBC and DC teamed up together to make a new “Wonder Woman” TV series but they killed that project. Hopefully “Supergirl” TV show will be a success.

Happy 75 years, Batman!!!

In celebration of Batman day today, I thought it would be cool to make this post. Like most, I am a pretty huge fan of Batman myself. I love the character. The stories. All the creative villains.

I’m not a very big comic book reader but I did read Batman comics as a kid and sometimes I still read Batman graphic novels.

I’m still a lifelong Batman fan. Obsessively watched the old TV series with Adam West and Burt Ward. Watched all the Batman big screen movies over the years. Out of all the Batman actors over the years: Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale. You’d have to ask which one who I think was the best Batman??? Some may find this pretty crazy but I always thought Adam West made the best Batman. He felt more realistic and he had personality than all the others. Keaton was great. Bale was pretty good, not amazing but pretty good. Kilmer and Clooney were terrible.

Even though I didn’t think Bale was the greatest Batman, I did love the Nolan movies though. I just liked them for the stories. “Batman: Begins”, “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight: Rises” were all pretty amazing flicks. It really is too bad that Nolan couldn’t do one more Batman flick when he could have if he wanted. He spent many years on the Batman flicks so I can’t blame him for finally wanting to move on. I really wanted to see Nolan’s take on the Riddler and the Penguin.

I think Ben Affleck could do a good job on Batman, though.

Batman is the coolest superhero ever ’cause he’s one of the very few superheroes who doesn’t have any powers. He’s an actual human being who have to fight crime with good fighting skills and gadgets. All of his villains are mostly crazy and insane people with different costumes and makeup.

He’s definitely one of my favorite characters.

I am also looking forward to that new Batman TV show called, “Gotham” which will air on FOX later this Fall… looks like a pretty cool show and I’m gonna check it out to see if it’s any good.

Happy 75 years, Batman and I’m sure there will be 75 years more.

Ben Affleck is your new Batman and here are my thoughts…

Like most, I am pretty surprised they picked Ben Affleck as the new Batman for the “Man of Steel” sequel. Warner Bros. announced the surprising news last night. Wow. They were pretty quick on hiring the new Batman so it looks like they’re in a rush. You see? Zack Snyder works fast, I wasn’t joking around.

To be honest, I think Ben is the perfect choice to play the role. Ben seems to be a fan of comics and superheroes himself as he has already played Daredevil, once for Marvel. The team behind the “Batman and Superman” film were looking for a slightly older Batman. I guess that’s the reason why Ben was picked ’cause he fit that perfectly. All the Batman’s from the past: Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, and Christian Bale were all pretty young at the time when they were first hired for their roles. Ben in his 40’s. This would make Ben the 5th Batman actor.

A lot of people online are trashing their choice of Ben playing the new Batman/Bruce Wayne but give him a chance. I think Ben is gonna be great. He’s gonna look great in the suit, I’m sure. The Batman suit is probably gonna be a black and rubber suit again but hopefully they give it a new style. New look and new color. They changed the Superman suit around, some, they’re probably gonna do the same with the Batman suit. I’m looking forward to seeing what Ben is gonna look like in the Batman suit so I’m sure Warner Bros. will release a photo of it soon to show us.

In Ben’s defense, I think he’s a very talented actor. He always has been. He can play any role that throws at him, no matter the genre. Sounds like Warner Bros. want to give Batman a different feeling and Ben would be great for that. Give Ben a chance and don’t be so quick to judge. He’s gonna be awesome! I think Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck will be a great team-up!

Zack Snyder confirms “Batman & Superman” movie at SDCC…

1025496_596455823732957_865397774_o

Every summer at San Diego Comic Con, there are all sorts of goodies that come out of it and this is one of them. Everyone knew there is gonna be a sequel to, “Man of Steel”, we just didn’t know what Zack Snyder’s plans were. Turns out that he is planning to team Batman and Superman together in one movie. It’s about time too! We always wanted Batman and Superman to have their own movie but the only problem with that is that Christian Bale no longer wants to play Batman. Bale is done with the Caped Crusader so he probably will not be in this or the “Justice League” film. That’s okay ’cause Bale wasn’t that great of a Batman anyways so let him go, ya know? So it’s looking like Batman will have to get replaced by another actor (again).

We won’t see a “Justice League” film for a long while ’cause it’s looking like Zack wants to have all the characters in “Justice League” to get their own film to build up to it. The Flash is getting his own movie too.

It wouldn’t surprise me if they get Joseph Gordon-Levitt to play Batman, though. If you’ve seen the ending to the “Dark Knight: Rises”, you would know exactly what I mean (not trying to spoil things).

Looking forward to seeing what they’re gonna do with the first “Batman/Superman” film. “Batman/Superman” is coming sooner than you think as I think it’s slated for a 2015 release date. Why is it coming this soon? Simply because Zack is a fast worker. He made “Man of Steel” pretty quick. He can get a single film done in less than a year.

In the photo above is the official logo revealed for the “Batman/Superman” movie at SDCC.

You see, Zack Snyder is a great film director, he is just a bad screenwriter…

I know Zack Snyder is not everyone’s favorite film director — his work have always been critical over the years. He’s really talented with the visuals, cinematography and camera work but his problem is the writing. He only wrote a few of his own movies that he directed but the rest of his movies in his filmography someone else wrote the screenplay. He only wrote the scripts for “300” and “Sucker-Punch”. “Dawn of the Dead”, “Watchmen”, and “Legends of the Guardians”, someone else wrote them. People were alright with his previous films but everyone hated, “Sucker-Punch”. I agree, “Sucker-Punch” was a shit movie.

Zack tries really hard to make a great movie. If he makes a bad movie, it’s not really his fault, you know? When you make a movie, sometimes you never can tell how good it’s going to be or what kind of reception the film is going to get. I’ve always thought Zack was perfect for “Man of Steel” ’cause I can’t think of no other director that would make a good Superman movie. It’s Zack talented visuals. That’s the key for WB’s wanting Zack to direct “Man of Steel”.

What Zack needs to start making better films is to quit writing his own movies. He needs to choose better scripts from other writers. I know Zack didn’t hire David Goyer for “Man of Steel”, David was already hired by Warner Bros./DC even before Zack jumped aboard. The point I’m trying to make here is that Zack just proved that he can make a good movie all-around with “Man of Steel”. He proved everyone wrong that he can be a good film maker. Not just his visuals, everything. Christopher Nolan didn’t help him much either. Nolan was on set for “Man of Steel” for a little bit but I remember in interviews Nolan was saying this was Zack’s movie in every way. Chris wanted to step back and let Zack be in charge of the direction. I’m sure Nolan helped Zack a little bit but he wanted Zack to have his time and let him do whatever he wanted with “Man of Steel”. So don’t go mistakenly thinking that Zack made a good Superman movie ’cause of Nolan’s help. Zack did it all himself, all the way. If you look around, you can see all kinds of “Man of Steel” behind the scene photos and you never see Nolan on set that much. It was always Zack, all the time.

Zack really worked hard to make the best Superman movie possible and he did exactly that. It really was an amazing movie, and I’m planning on seeing “Man of Steel” again tonight at the Drive-In movie theaters. Seeing it again with some other friends who haven’t seen it.

Congratulations to Mr. Snyder. He finally won over movie fans and got the respect back that he absolutely deserves! Hope you readers out there have seen the film this weekend. If not, see it this week! You will not be disappointed at all, trust me.

Cool Video: This new “Man of Steel” trailer makes me even more excited for the film now!!!

Could we finally get a great Superman movie after all these years? Could Superman be relevant now with this movie? This is a pretty badass trailer. I’m stoked to see the movie. I’m definitely gonna go see this one but this movie makes me want to go see this film with someone or a group of people. I don’t want to see this movie alone. Movies like this would make you want to see this with people to make it more fun! I have a few pretty good ideas who I would want to see this with. “Man of Steel” keeps looking better every new trailer that’s released. I’m sure it will be an amazing movie. It comes out in a couple of weeks! This film is gonna top “The Avengers” no matter what happens.

Thought: “Man of Steel” question, who is Jenny Olsen???

I know this blog has been a bit way too political as of late, but I think it’s time for a change and go back to discussing movies/music and other entertainment which was the original idea for this site to begin with.

A young actress by the name of Rebecca Bulller, is listed as Jenny Olsen in the “Man of Steel” IMDB page, and in the “Man of Steel” trailer, you see Laurence Fishburne as Perry White running with a young girl which appears to be, Rebecca, in the trailer. A lot of people are speculating that Jenny Olsen, could be a female version of Jimmy Olsen. Jimmy Olsen is not in “Man of Steel” at all, I believe.

The character Jenny Olsen, is not from the comics at all. It’s an original character for, “Man of Steel”.

I’m thinking that Jenny Olsen could be a possible relative of Jimmy Olsen. Maybe daughter or sister, or maybe even his wife, something like that. That way, they can introduce Jimmy for the “Man of Steel” sequel.

“Man of Steel” is full of secrecy, and all will be revealed when we see the actual film in June. The film has been rated PG-13. Some may mistakenly say that this is the first Superman PG-13 film but it isn’t ’cause the last Superman film, “Superman: Returns” was PG-13. All the Chris Reeve films were PG, I think. Superman can’t be an R rated film ever, in my opinion, ’cause this character was meant to be enjoyed for people of all ages.

In other Superman news, I also see that characters for the upcoming, “Justice League” film have been confirmed, and they are none other than Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the Flash. I hope they do a good job with the “Justice League” film. That film will be difficult to make it good. I know they will try to top “The Avengers”, but it will be hard to do. They just need a good director and good script.

Looking forward to both “Man of Steel”, and “Justice League”.

Report: “Justice League” movie finally greenlighted for Summer of 2015 release…

Due to the big victory of Warner Bros. copyright case to Superman, Warner Bros. is not wasting any time on the, “Justice League” film, as they have just set a release date for, Summer of 2015. They hope to start shooting next year, so expect casting to start soon. Also, who should direct it and write it. Joss Whedon would be out since he’ll be busy filming, “Avengers 2”. There will be no Christopher Nolan or Zack Snyder. I’m not sure who to direct it, but as for who to cast as Superman, why not get Brandon Routh back? Good idea, isn’t it? This is a good chance for Brandon to reprise his role, if Henry Cavill is not down.

Anyway, this is going to be a very hard movie to make. Could it top, “The Avengers”? I don’t know. The story and directing needs to be spot on. “Justice League” needs to be more than just another typical popcorn action film. It needs to be a MOVIE!!! With great acting and a great story. Sure, I can definitely see, “Justice League” being an action packed ride, but the story needs to work.

More on it, here.

Well, I’m glad Superman got it’s rights back ’cause this could change everything with the Superman character in the comics, video games, cartoons and other forms of entertainment. I can see Superman finally getting his own action/adventure video game in the works soon. It’ll be cool to get a Superman video game that is similar to, “Batman Arkham Asylum/Arkham City”. Sure, Superman has appeared in other games such as “Mortal Kombat vs. DC Comics”, “DC Universe Online”, and “Injustice”, but everyone wants Superman to get his own game. I can see why the video gaming industry hasn’t made Superman his own game yet. They are waiting for the character to come out with a hit movie, and when “Man of Steel” comes out in theaters next year, that will be the time to release his own video game.

EDIT TO ADD: I think I just thought of a director for the “Justice League” film. How about none other than Bryan Singer?

Report: “Man of Steel” will focus on a “naturalistic approach” similar to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy…

While this is no surprise, the new “Man of Steel” movie setting to hit theaters next Summer in 2013, will be similar to the Batman trilogy. The first “Man of Steel” movie will have an origin story much like, “Batman: Begins”. Just like that film was the beginning of Batman, this film will be the beginning of Superman. It’s going to ignore the Richard Donner/Christopher Reeve style. This film will be like a Superman movie made for the first time. So you will not hear the John Williams main theme at all. “Man Of Steel” will make you wonder what Superman will be like if he was real. The screenwriter, David Goyer, speaks out on how he is handling the script, a little bit, but of course, he doesn’t get into details with the story and plot.

More on the story, here.

While, I’m still disappointed that the John Williams music won’t be in the movie, I’ll give it a chance. Maybe Hans Zimmer can give it a good score, who knows. I like their idea for the new Superman story, but admittedly, I’m a bit skeptical like some people out there. This film could be a flop and may not be as good. People may not be used to a different approach to Superman ’cause everyone is so used to the Richard Donner style. I do like Henry as Superman though, that’s a good choice. I’m just hoping and praying that this will be an amazing film. Will Zack redeem himself this time? Or will he make another shit movie, worse than “Sucker Punch”? Who knows. All we have to do is wait to see the actual film and than people can judge. If “Man of Steel” gets positive reviews from everyone, that would be amazing, but I am predicting that this film will get mixed reviews.

I’m hoping Warner Bros., will release trailer #2 soon with Hans Zimmer’s new theme and hope they will show General Zod for the next trailer. “Man of Steel” is just the beginning but I’m sure the sequel will leave open more ideas and more villains. Lex Luthor may not be in “Man of Steel”, but maybe he will get a cameo at the end and he could be the leading villain for the sequel?
