Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Sneak Peak Footage Released for Upcoming Film

For the past year, Warner Bros has been keeping Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice footage close to the chest. First there was the April teaser, and the only other preview for the first live action outing between the two heroes was this summer at San Diego Comic-Con. Fans have been eager for another look at the movie, and their wish was finally fulfilled tonight during the Gotham Season 2 midseason finale on Fox. Check it out the latest sneak peek at the 2016 blockbuster showing Batman and Superman in an uncomfortable situation.

Expanding on the desert commando Batman scenes from the last trailer, this new preview shows Bruce Wayne being held prisoner in an underground bunker. Getting a look at his surroundings (note how he can turn his head wearing that mask), he notices he’s not the only prisoner chained in that room, with one man on either side of him. Suddenly, he’s surprised by a falling Man of Steel. Yes, just as seen during the previous trailers, we have an angry-looking Superman with his own force of soldiers. Casually walking over to Batman, he unmasks Gotham City’s Dark Knight, and needless to say Bruce isn’t pleased with this. The preview cuts off before we see what happens next, but that look of contempt on Kal-El’s face as he looks at the mask and back at his prisoner suggests there won’t be a friendly conversation.

There’s been a lot of speculation about the circumstances of these desert scenes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which presumably take place far away from Gotham City and Metropolis. The Comic-Con trailer showed Batman in his desert gear infiltrating this base of operations and battling Superman’s army. Considering Superman’s firm moral code and his desire to protect the people of Earth, this moody and dictatorial persona for the Kryptonian is out of character, feeling more at home in stories like Superman: Red Son or Injustice: Gods Among Us.

The common belief is that this is some kind of dream sequence probably being imagined by Batman. We know that he considers Superman to be a threat that must be stopped, as does much of the world after the events of Man of Steel. Perhaps this sequence is Bruce imagining what would happen if Superman were to take control of Earth. Awakening from this nightmare, he realizes that drastic measures need to be taken, leading Bruce to create that bulky armor and take him on personally. Other possibilities could include mind control or that not even being the real Superman, but we’ll learn the answer in due time.

Admittedly, there wasn’t a lot to chew on here, but fortunately, we won’t have to wait long to see more new footage. At the end of the sneak peek, it’s noted that the next trailer will debut Wednesday, December 2 on Jimmy Kimmel Live! at 11:35 EST. As for the movie itself, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.

Blade Runner Star Rutger Hauer Has Died Aged 75

Hollywood star Rutger Hauer has died aged 75.

The actor was best known for playing Roy Batty in the 1982 movie Blade Runner and also Sin City, Batman Begins and TV show True Blood.

His agent Steve Kenis confirmed Hauer died on Friday following a short illness. His funeral was held on Wednesday.

Tributes have begun pouring in for the star, with Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro tweeting to say: “RIP the great Rutger Hauer: an intense, deep, genuine and magnetic actor that brought truth, power and beauty to his films.”

KISS musician Gene Simmons wrote: “Sad to hear Rutger Hauer has passed away. He was always a gentleman, kind and compassionate. Sending our condolences and prayers to his family, friends and fans.”

Hauer was born in Breukelen in the Netherlands and did stints in both the merchant navy and army before he became an actor.

He got his big break in 1969, when he became the lead in TV series Floris.

Away from acting, Hauer launched The Rutger Hauer Starfish Foundation, which aimed to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS, especially within children and pregnant women.

Issuing a statement following his death, the foundation said: “The Rutger Hauer Starfish Association announces with infinite sadness that after a very short illness, on Friday, July 19, 2019, Rutger passed away peacefully at his Dutch home.

“He leaves his beloved wife Ineke, after they have been together for fifty years.

“We at Starfish will always cherish the many unforgettable memories we have of Rutger and his dedication to the Rutger Hauer Starfish Association.

“One of Rutger’s last wishes was that Starfish should continue its charity activity and its fight against the AIDS disease, and with Ineke’s precious help, involvement and direction we will follow Rutger’s wish and will do our best to carry on Rutger’s inestimable legacy.”

Beyoncé is the New Nala! The Lion King Fans Are Not so Impressed!

Are you as much of a fan of both Beyonce and The Lion King as I am? I mean, Beyonce could sing the phone book and I would still think she sounds angelic! And as an African, I am bound to love The Lion King!

If you are at least a fan of either, Beyonce or The Lion King, I’m sure you already know that Beyonce stars as Nala in the latest Lion King movie. Now its trailer is already out, and it is set to hit the cinemas soon! There are also beautiful photos of the “Lion King” cast all over the internet. Have I already told you just how beautiful the photos are? If you would like to see them, check them out here!

Now the problem is that some Twitter users are not so happy with “Queen Bey” as Nala! Honestly, I personally wouldn’t find fault in anything that Beyonce does, but clearly, not everyone shares the same sentiments as myself! One critic claimed that Beyonce is being “too Beyonce”, I don’t even know what that means.

The critic tweeted, “It’s like something is off here, maybe the lions look too real for voice-overs. And I know Nala is Beyonce but it sounds very Beyonce. It’s so distracting…”! Another also posted, “Okay I’m going to be brave and say this but I don’t think I like Beyonce as Nala. I wish she had just done the soundtrack but her voice doesn’t suit Nala. Hope I’m wrong…”!

Another Twitter user suggested that Queen Bey should have tried to change her voice to suit the character, saying her voice is “too distinct for this. It doesn’t even sound like she attempted to change the sound of her voice for the character”.

Robert Pattinson is Officially The New Batman, Film Releases in 2021

After weeks of speculation, Robert Pattinson has officially inherited the keys to the Batmobile from Ben Affleck

The actor who shot to fame as a vampire in the Twilight films will take on another nocturnal hero: Batman. Pattinson, 33, inherits the role from Ben Affleck, whose tenure came to an end after the critical and commercial disappointments of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

Pattinson’s first film as the billionaire crime fighter Bruce Wayne, who assumes a full-body black costume to battle baddies in Gotham City, will be titled The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves, and set for release in June 2021. Originally scheduled to start shooting in 2017, The Batman will be the first solo Caped Crusader film to form part of the DC Extended Universe.

The Warner Bros studio confirmed to Variety on Friday that Pattinson had beaten the other names on the shortlist – which included Nicholas Hoult – to the role. Following breakthrough performances in the Harry Potter and Twilight franchises, Pattinson has spent some years steering clear of the mainstream, instead working with directors such as David Cronenberg, David Michôd, the Safdie brothers and James Gray.

His recent collaboration with the French director Claire Denis, erotic sci-fi mystery High Life, won Pattinson considerable acclaim. He also stars in one of the best-reviewed films from this year’s Cannes festival: Robert Eggers’s The Lighthouse, an intense psychodrama set in 19th-century Maine.
