Warner Bros. Blinks First!!! Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Gets New Release Date!!! Also Announces Release Dates For 9 Future DC Films!!!

batman-v-superman In a game of chicken that Warner Bros. initiated with Marvel, The DC Comics owner blinked first. After initially changing their scheduled release date of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice to go head to head with Marvel’s future Captain America 3 movie, and professing they would not budge, Warner Bros. has indeed budged, blinked, chickened out, and whatever other metaphor for retreating you can come up with, and announced that they are changing the release date for the upcoming superhero blockbuster. But the good news is that the movie will be pushed up and not delayed. Batman & Superman fans will now get to see the two comic book goliaths go at it on March 25, 2016. A surprisingly early release for a movie that has Summer Blockbuster written all over it.

Personally, I think Batman v Superman would have won the Box Office battle against Cap 3 because even though the Captain America films and pretty much everything Marvel has put out these last few years have been really good, it’s Batman & Superman on the big screen together for the first time ever!!! And I think everyone that’s even remotely a comic book and superhero fan wants to see that. It also looks like we will be seeing a lot more of the heroes and villains from the DC Nation, as according to Box Office Mojo, Warner Bros. has also announced release dates for nine more untitled future DC Films and two untitled WB “Event” films. Speculations are that some of the untitled DC Films will be the already confirmed Justice League movie and it’s potential sequels, a solo Wonder Woman movie, a Sandman movie involving Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and a Shazam/Black Adam movie starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Early thoughts are the two WB “Event” films will be the sequels to the Harry Potter spinoff movie ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ which is scheduled for Nov. 18, 2016.

So what do you think of the new release date for Batman v Superman?   Do you think Warner Bros. showed weakness by backing out? Should they have kept the box office battle with Marvel going? And what are your thoughts on the heavy stable of DC films that are rumored to come? What movies and characters would you like to see in these future movies?

Feel free to join the discussion and give your thoughts and opinions!!!

Solange Knowles Viciously Attacks Jay Z In Elevator At Met Gala!!! (Video)

” I Got 99 Problems But A Bitch Ain’t One, Hit Me!!!” And hit him she did!!! In a shocking video just released by TMZ (Shout out to Harvey Levin and the TMZ Crew. Love those Guys. ) Beyonce’s not so little sister Solange straight snapped off and brutally attacked Mr. Carter himself, Jay Z, in an elevator at last week’s Met Gala event. Now unfortunately, as usual, there is no audio to this footage, but we can only imagine what was said or done for Solange to behave so violently towards Jay. She swings at him several times and aggressively kicks him in his groin twice before Jay was able to grab her foot!!! Rumor has it she also spit on Jay as well. Seeing the video, it’s very apparent that Solange is extremely pissed at Jay about something. Jay Z never physically attacked back while security separated the two. The security guard also pressed the emergency stop button while all of this was going down to keep the situation private. A pretty smart move but pointless in the end as the surveillance footage is now public anyways. Even more surprising is that Beyonce seemed very calm about the situation. She didn’t show much emotion, which is shocking when your sister is trying to knock your husband’s block off. I’m sure this story is going to get some major play and we will hear tons of opinions. I just hope we get the audio from that elevator. I think that’s what everybody wants at this point.

The Rock To Be The New Green Lantern In Batman Vs Superman/Man Of Steel 2?!!!

The Rock To Be The New Green Lantern In Batman Vs Superman/Man Of Steel 2?!!! 

There is now speculation that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be Green Lantern, John Stewart in the sequel to last summer’s smash movie “Man Of Steel”. The action star had an interesting Instagram photo a while ago that caught quite a few people’s eyes and is gaining attention again now due to the latest rumblings surrounding Warner Bros. and their DC Universe projects. The hashtag to the photo read, “#JohnStewartCanStillWhupSupermansAss” (which he totally can’t by the way), hence the speculation. Just in the last couple of weeks, rumors were rampant that Johnson would be cast as Superman nemesis Darkseid, who is a villain so powerful it surely would be the catalyst to bring about the creation of the Justice League. The justice League eventually forming has been pretty much considered a given with the casting announcements that have been made for the Batman/Superman film. The question is will we see the true beginnings of it in Man Of Steel 2 or will the Justice League movie be filmed back to back with the Batman/Superman/MOS2 film and that’s when we see The League formed? What do you think? Would you rather see The Rock as Green Lantern John Stewart or as Darkseid? Here is a link to a report on the Instagram photo and hashtag courtesy of IGN.com —-> http://bit.ly/1aqLGJ5

Jesse Eisenberg Cast As Lex Luthor In Batman Vs Superman/Man Of Steel 2 Movie!!! Jeremy Irons Also Cast As Alfred Pennyworth!!!

 

Jesse Eisenberg Cast As Lex Luthor In Batman Vs Superman/Man Of Steel 2 Movie!!! Jeremy Irons Also Cast As Alfred Pennyworth!!!

Warner Bros. Pictures made a huge and shocking annoncement today as they have officially announced the casting of Academy Award nominated actor (The Social Network) Jesse Eisenberg as Superman’s arch-nemesis Lex Luthor and Academy Award winning actor  (Reversal Of Fortune) Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, the world famous butler, mentor and father figure to Bruce Wayne AKA Batman, who of course will be played by Ben Affleck. Responses are already heated about the casting of Eisenberg , who most believe isn’t the right fit to portray the vicious, dark, power obsessed maniac that is Lex Luthor. Meanwhile Jeremy Irons’ casting as trusty butler Alfred has been more well received as he is an established talented actor with a proven ability to have a strong range. The sequel to last year’s blockbuster Man Of Steel has had it’s fair share of criticism with many fans not approving of the casting of several of the roles including a large backlash when Affleck was initially announced as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Gal Gadot’s hiring to be DC Comics Superheroine Wonder Woman (who will at least make a cameo in the Batman Vs Superman film) was also met with dislike We can only wait and see how this will all turn out. And that wait will be a bit longer than originally anticipated as Man Of Steel 2/Batman Vs Superman has been pushed back from July 17, 2015 to May 6, 2016.

Doomsday Mentioned in Man Of Steel Blu-Ray!!!

Doomsday Mentioned In Man Of Steel Blu-Ray!!!

Could Doomsday be in Superman’s Theatrical Future?!!! In the Special Features of the Man Of Steel Blu-Ray to be released nation wide tomorrow (November 12th, 2013) there is an interesting nod to “The One Who Killed Superman.” In a feature called Learn About Krypton, some Kryptonian language is being deciphered and a warning about “Bertron’s Curse” can been seen. The ominous message states “We remember those who fell during the Last War…Beware Bertron’s curse for he is named Doomsday.” Pretty cool, and a nice little nod to all us fans who have wanted to see the epic battle of Superman & Doomsday played out on the big screen. I don’t believe this will happen in Man Of steel 2 AKA Batman Vs Superman, and I also don’t believe this will necessarily happen in the potential Justice League movies either. I could see the seeds being planted in the Justice League movies and Doomsday finally appearing in either the final Man Of Steel movie or the one before the last film. What do you guys think? Are you excited for the possibilities?

Rihanna & Teyana Taylor Got Beef!!!

Rihanna & Teyana Taylor Got Beef!!!

The self proclaimed Good Girl Gone Bad Rihanna is at again with yet another Twitter beef. This time with GOOD Music singer Teyana Taylor. After Riri posted a video on her Instagram of her hairstylist (name not known and honestly who the hell cares?) wearing a wig and performing a parody of Taylor’s  Anita Baker “Caught Up In The Rapture” cover, Teyana posted a video of her singing the song and took to Twitter to blast Rihanna for her behavior. Rihanna better be careful. Yes, she’s a bigger star and entertainer, no question. But Ms. Taylor just may have her on the vocals. Click the box up top to read the link. (Courtesy of upi.com)
