A color photo of the Batsuit that Ben Affleck will be wearing in 2016's Batman V. Superman has emerged online, and despite rumors that it would be a little less dark than Nolan's all-black outfit, it might actually be the least colorful Bat-costume we've ever seen on film.
Doctor Strange will likely be one of Marvel's most ambitious phase three projects. With fan-favorite Benedict Cumberbatch on board as the Sorcerer Supreme himself, and a level of magic and the supernatural that's once again going to test just how far this movie universe will stretch, it's slated to be a huge undertaking.
If you haven't heard, Sony got the crap hacked out of them back in November by an unnamed group (some speculate it's North Korea, seriously), and so much data was lifted that we're still seeing it slowly trickle out into the public. One of the more recent finds was a bunch of emails between top Sony execs discussing the future of their Spider-Man franchise.
DC might be waaay behind Marvel in the movie department, but their cinematic universe is growing fast. The announcement of a Suicide Squad movie (with actors like Will Smith, Tom Hardy, and Jared Leto cast no less) has done a huge amount of legwork in establishing just who the villains of this world are; and now, a bunch of new rumors have emerged that might expand this side of things even more.
It seems that the rumors are true, and Batman V. Superman will indeed feature yet another retelling of the death of Thomas and Martha Wayne. It's hard to imagine where this is going to fit in a movie that already features Wonder Woman and Superman at the very least, but it is a pretty iconic scene, and I suppose necesary to some degree if you're going to be setting up a new version of Batman.
With a new Batman on the scene, it was only a matter of time before DC and WB found a new movie Joker. While it seems unlikely that he'll have anything more than a brief cameo (if that) in 2016's Batman V. Superman, it sounds like Warner Bros. has already started casting for the role, and Harley Quinn might not be very far behind.
We got all of the announcements from the big Marvel event earlier that went down earlier week, but what didn't arrive online were the two new videos they showed. Luckily for us (albeit probably frustrating for Marvel), both of them were discretely filmed and leaked online. The first one, a teaser for Avengers: Infinity War, hit the web yesterday, and now we've got a pretty decent look at the second: a full scene from Age of Ultron that succinctly sets the stage for Civil War.
Yesterday, Marvel broke the internet when they announced all of their films from now up to 2019. Nine films were presented, including newbies like Doctor Strange and Black Panther, and the ridiculously exciting prospect of Avengers: Infinity War, a movie that will presumably be so packed with awesome, it needs to be split into two parts.
Yesterday was a massive day for Marvel news, but we've got two more video clips this morning to finish things off. First up is the Infinity War teaser that Marvel showed at yesterday's press conference. Aside from Thanos and his new accessory, it has no new footage, but it is really cool.
Today, Marvel dropped some huge bombshells in regards to their Phase Three plans. One of the biggest announcements was the long-rumored title of the third Thor film: Ragnarok. Thor hasn't always been the most popular comic book character though, so even though this is also the title of one of his most epic stories, I haven't seen it discussed all that much.
