The rumor mill continues for two of the most anticipated comic book movies of 2012. So who will Joseph Gordon-Levitt play in The Dark Knight Rises? And who will play Lois Lane in 'Superman'? Read on to (not) find out.
With Zack Snyder heading up Superman: The Man of Steel, expectations are high that the man behind 300 and Watchmen can bring a Dark Knight-level of success to Big Blue. As Superman Returns proved, however, achieving greatness isn't easy. Like so many superhero films of late, what seemed like a great idea for a Superman story didn't quite materialize on the big screen.
Man of Steel is set to begin filming this year, so I've thought hard about how the director can really make this film work. I've now compiled five different ways Zach Snyder can make us all happy to see the Last Son of Krypton on the big screen again.
Concept art is a wonderful tool for filmmakers, and can give them an idea of how they want their films to look well before the cameras start rolling. The problem is there is such an abundance of concept art for a film, not every idea can be used, and inevitably lots of ideas get cut. Every now and again an artist will release these unused concepts in order to give fans a look at what might have been, and this is the case today where fans get to see what Doomsday could have looked like in Bryan Singer's Superman movie.
For now, let's file this as a rumor and hold back on any major excitement, lest the disappointment send you into a fit of despair. This information comes from the British newspaper News of the World and let's face it, except for the London Times, most British papers aren't exactly reputable. For the most part they hold the same reputation as our tabloids do here in the States. That doesn't mean they're always wrong, but it's a good reason to take this news with a grain of salt. According to them, they talked briefly with Zack Snyder on his upcoming Superman film and he revealed he might be re-considering Brandon Routh to return to the Man of Steel role.
It’s been quite a day for the new Superman film. The film gained a director out of nowhere and surprised all of the internet in it's aftermath. Not to shabby at all, Supes.
Deadline had the exclusive on what is sure to be one of the most controversial directing decisions of 2010. Zack Snyder is in fact directing the new Superman under the tutelage of Godfather Nolan. Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan working together on the same project? Well...that’ll be interesting. Moving on, Zack Snyder claims that he will begin work on the film once he finishes post for Sucker Punch. Nice to see that he’ll still have robots with pink rabbit faces on the brain when he starts work on Superman. That’s all the background you need, after all.
Godfather Nolan (as Warner Bros. should now be calling him) has a pretty good idea on who he wants to have direct the new Superman film. But who are the lucky five chosen to be on his shortlist?
