Ben Affleck Gets A Close-Up In New Comic-Con Pic For BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
Warner Bros. is currently busy promoting its next theatrical slate of films for this year's events at San Diego Comic Con, which also include just a touch of what fan can expect with costume pieces from Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The film is currently in production under director Zack Snyder with lead actor Henry Cavill reprising his role from last year's Man Of Steel and is poised for a May 6, 2016 release.
The film also joins Cavill opposite actor Ben Affleck in the title role of Bruce Wayne/Batman, who has gotten quite the spotlight this year seeing as how the iconic DC Comics character is celebrating its 75th birthday. Moreover, as the cameras continue rolling, we have already seen a few photos of the actor and Snyder's rendition of the Batmobile for the new film.
On Thursday, DC Comics is adding another photo to the deck of pics teasing the film, this time with an up-close profile headshot of Affleck in the famous cowl. Check it out:
We've already seen several glimpses of Batman's gear and a promo image of Cavill in the Superman costume, along with actress Gal Gadot on set while yet to be spotted in her upcoming appearance as Diana/Wonder Woman. Currently there is no telling where, when or how we will see the next big update from the film as production continues, although if you live in Detroit, or if you are at Comic-Con this year, you might be lucky.
The film is also geared toward the production of Justice League before Man Of Steel 2, for which by then we will finally see what the rest of our heroes in costume will look like. In the meantime, stay tuned as excitement continues to build.
Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice also stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Scoot McNairy.
Currently stemming from Florida's independent film scene is Victor Rios with his directorial debut, Fury Of The Dragon. Rios helms from the creative auspices of 333 Pictures and Frank Films, and cinematographer Armin Alic who co-helmed the 2015 indie action thriller, Room 236., and with a cast that brings actor Lilo Brancato and Wade Williams to the forefront of the tale of a mysterious vigilante on the streets of America and a detective who may or may not be out to stop him.
The film is currently in production with plans currently set for its own trilogy and it's early days at the moment. In the meantime, peep the teaser below and stay tuned for more info as it arises.
It was to be expected since its confirmation in late 2015, and now it looks as if things will officially take shape for the spin-off corner of Universal Pictures's Fast And Furious saga. On Friday, new report from Deadline presented news on good terms that the studio is keen on efforts to manifest a spin-off that will join action movie stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in their own movie with a script by franchise scribe Chris Morgan.
The news comes following the latest release of the eighth installment of the high speed action movie franchise, The Fate Of The Furious, and while I won't divulge the specific twists and details that outline the prospects of this union, the film did greatly in invoking a buddy element that would bode well for both actors in their current positive chemistry. Ironically it also comes in the wake of other news that the film would have been signaled by an end credits scene filmed by producer Neal Moritz with Johnson and Statham featured which F…
Martial arts action star Scott Adkins is currently treading the streets of Thailand as one of the key antagonists on the set of Jesse Johnson's ensemble action thriller, Triple Threat. In the meantime, post production is already underway for the previous completion from the duo with an adaptation of British comic book thriller, Accident Man which Adkins also produces.
On Saturday, Adkins took to social media to unveil the first official still from the production which takes its cues from creators Pat Mills and Tony Skinner whose once popular Toxic! publication manifests the story of an assassin who disguises his hit jobs as everyday, ordinary accidents. Adkins himself described the film as a dream project from the age of fifteen, telling followers, "I fell in love with the comic book, always knew it would be an amazing movie. I co-wrote, produced and of course star and I am very, very proud of this film and I know you guys are going to love it too." Adkins writes with co-s…
