Just yesterday we got a new look at the Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and today brings even more official photos from Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero showdown. Among them you’ll find a furious Superman, a brooding Batman and a quite lovely Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman.

With every new iteration of Batman comes not only a new costume and Batcave, but a brand new Batmobile for our hero’s nightly vigilante cruises around Gotham. We’ve gotten a few looks at Ben Affleck’s Batmobile via promotional images over the last few months, but Warner Bros. has now released another new, dramatic look at the vehicle from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
It’s been kind of a big week for Marvel — we haven’t really covered it here, but the company had a bit of a shakeup, as Marvel Studios disengaged from Marvel Entertainment, with Kevin Feige taking the movie end of things over to Disney and gaining more control over the MCU. On the heels of that major news, Chris Evans has revealed that he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Clearly things are pretty good over at Marvel right now.
Rock, Roll, Dr. Light, Dr. Wily and all the robot masters are supposedly heading to Hollywood in a live-action Mega Man movie being made by 20th Century Fox.
They’ve just wrapped up a massive Global Unboxing Event for #ForceFriday, the grand unveiling of the new toys for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And looking through the acton figures that were unveiled, there are some really impressive likenesses. The little Finn, for example, really looks like John Boyega. And then are a few that don’t. The action figure version of Rey could be Daisy Ridley. But if you put it in front of me with no context (and no awesome BB-8 accessory), I’d probably be a little lost. I might guess it’s a Natalie Portman figure from Revenge of the Sith.
The fight over whether Spider-Man should have organic or mechanical web shooters in film / TV adaptations has been ongoing — Sam Raimi went against canon by making Spidey’s web-slinging abilities the result of a mutation, while one of the only thing Marc Webb’s films did right was give the hero mechanical web shooters. But what will Marvel and Sony’s newly rebooted Spider-Man have when he makes his debut in Captain America: Civil War?
Everyone loves superhero movies…at least right now. But, if there’s one thing 2015 has shown us is that there is success to be had, and lots of it, without them. Universal Pictures is having a record-setting year without a single superhero movie on their roster. It’s true that superhero movies have been incredibly successful, but is that sustainable? Steven Spielberg doesn’t think so.
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies, You Think You Know TV, and Post Credits comes a brand new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
A few weeks ago Michael Shannon got the internet buzzing when he made comments during an interview about his involvement in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It involved General Zod (whose corpse appears briefly in the trailers), flipper-hands and a hilarious story about a port-a-potty. Michael Shannon would now like you to know that he was joking.
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
