Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons Cast as Lex Luthor and Alfred Pennyworth in ‘Man of Steel 2,’ 2016 Release Confirmed
Well we certainly didn’t see this one coming, did we? The news broke today that the roles of Lex Luthor and Aflred Pennyworth have been cast for the sequel to Man of Steel, rumored to be called Batman vs. Superman. Hit the jump to read more.
I’ll be the first to admit the wait for any new information on the sequel to Man of Steel has been a tough one, but with the release so utterly far away we can’t really blame Warner Bros. for not opening the floodgates on news for the film. The downside of this blackout, however, is that the internet has stepped in to fill the void with an incessant amount of rumors, hopes, and flat out false reports about the film. Rumors and false reports about anticipated films is to be expected, but with Man of Steel 2 things have hit a fever pitch; not even the Dark Knight trilogy had this sort of whirlwind about it. With a huge amount of sites reporting this rumors as die-hard facts, I feel like someone needs to sort out the truths from the rumors and clear the air, and it might as well be me. Hit the jump to see what’s confirmed, what’s rumored, and which of those rumors are likely to turn out true, or false.
Well, things just got interesting. As revealed on the cover this morning by Entertainment Weekly, it looks like the Man of Steel and the Queen (I mean, given what happened in the first arc of the rebooted Wonder Woman…) of the Amazons will be an item in the New 52 DC Universe. Hit the jump to see the cover and hear all the details.
Another day, another fan-made piece of art that I wish was real. Disney animator Robb Pratt has created a short film for the Man of Steel, animated in traditional Disney animation style, and it’s amazing. I wish this thing was an actual cartoon, seriously. Hit the jump to see the short and be sure to stick around after the very quick credits to see some behind the scenes work from Robb.
We still have a full year until Man of Steel, Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, finally debuts but that hasn’t stopped the trickle of information coming from Warner Bros. Though we still don’t have a teaser poster or trailer (both are expected to debut at San Diego Comic-Con this year, with the trailer also being attached toThe Dark Knight Rises), we now have a nice look at some of the costumes from the film that were on display the 2012 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada this year. Hit the jump to see!
