Someday, someone is going to write a fascinating account of Warner Bros.' Sysyphean efforts to make a Justice League movie.
If the latest rumor is to be believed, then a chapter in that entirely-hypothetical The Devil's Candy-style tome could be devoted to Will Beall's Justice League script, which, according to the rumor, is being kicked to the curb entirely.
We've been seeing quite a bit of Henry Cavill stuffed into a supersuit as the title character in Man of Steel lately, as well as thoughts on Superman's alien origin from screenwriter David S. Goyer. Between Cavill's muscles and Goyer's assertion that the reboot is "a story of a man with two fathers," things are getting a little phallocentric in Metropolis.
Luckily, a new black and white image brings a feminine touch to Man of Steel, as it shows off Amy Adams as the indomitable Lois Lane.
Despite looking like a corn-fed quarterback, Superman is, in fact, an alien refugee on Earth. And from what screenwriter David S. Goyer has been saying about Man of Steel, the new Superman reboot will make Kal-El of Krypton's extraterrestrial lineage a central thematic element of the rejiggered origin story that remains fairly mysterious.
With just about five months until Man of Steel brings Superman back to theaters in ostentatious fashion. In order to facilitate the hype that'll be overwhelming later this year, we have two variations on one exceedingly clear image of Henry Cavill in the redesigned Superman costume as the Last Son of Krypton.
That we know virtually nothing about Justice League for sure beyond the writer and that Warner Bros. is hoping to have it in theaters during 2015 hasn't stopped a steady stream of rumors, all of which will remain rumors for the time being. Earlier this month, one such rumor concerned just which DC Comics characters would make up the titular superteam.
Now, a follow-up rumor specifies five familiar heroes who will form the Justice League, along with several other, less familiar characters who might just pop up in cameo appearances.
Okay, let's keep this short and sweet: the Superman reboot has received a rating from the Motion Picture Association of America about five months out from its nationwide release.
Man of Steel is rated PG-13, which is pretty much exactly what you'd expect from Zack Snyder's take on Superman's origin.
He hasn't seen the movie yet, but Russell Crowe is psyched about Man of Steel nonetheless.
Between the set photos of long ago and the more recent theatrical for Man of Steel, we've now put our eyes on Henry Cavill in costume as the newly rebooted cinematic Superman quite a few times. In those set photos, though, Cavill isn't properly lit, and the trailer itself keeps shots of the costume quite quick and partial.
Thanks to the miracle of merchandizing tie-ins, today we have a look at an excessively detailed statue of Superman and his new duds. Spoiler: he looks very superheroic.
Want to see an almost upsettingly handsome man looking his handsomest in an iconic outfit?
Look no further, folks, because there's a new image of Henry Cavill as the title character in this year's Man of Steel making the rounds, and it features a Superman with features chiseled out of Kryptonite.
Justice League is still without a director, but Warner Bros. very much intends to have its own superhero team-up in theaters by 2015, the year that will also see The Avengers sequel reassembling Marvel's foremost supersquad in theaters. Director or not, we may just have an idea which DC comic book story will form the basis of the theatrical Justice League.
