Marvel and DC Movie Updates – DC Blinks, Moves Batman v Superman Release

Four months ago, after the success of the Captain America: Winter Soldier’s opening weekend, Marvel announced that Captain America 3 would be produced and released on May 6, 2016. This is the same date that DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film was slated. This was widely seen as shots fired across DC’s bow, whose film franchise plans depend widely upon the success of Batman v Superman. If DC has any hope of replicating Marvel’s film franchise success, it needs Batman v Superman to do well, as it will introduce, not only a new Batman (portrayed by Ben Affleck), but also Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) in a lead up to what is widely speculated to be a Justice League movie.

Today, in a move that has suprised few, DC and Warner Bros. have announced a new release date, March 25th, 2016.

Additionally, Warner Bros. announced 9 more theatrical release dates for as yet unnamed films. See them and more speculation after the break!

Wonder Woman is Gal Gadot in Batman/Superman film

GAL GADOT at Fast & Furious 6 Premiere Wonder_woman

Rumors of Wonder Woman’s casting have been swirling for years and that has only heated up with rumors that the Amazon might appear in the forthcoming Batman/Superman film featuring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, respectively. The HollywoodReporter is reporting that actress Gal Gadot has been cast for the role in the Man of Steel sequel.

“Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.” -director Zack Snyder.

This will be Gadot’s first time in a leading role after having portrayed mostly supporting roles in notable films in several of the Fast & Furious movies and Knight and Day.

Gal seems to have the right look, but she has a very small frame. I would have imagined a female body builder more in line with the look for the role. This seems like a hard sell. I look forward to seeing how they will make it work.

SDCC 2013: WB announces Man of Steel sequel based on Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns

SDCC-2013-batman-superman-header-comicbooktherapy

According to SlashFilm, at the very end of the DC panel, Zack Snyder took over to make an announcement about a Man of Steel sequel:

I’m gonna take the lectern from you, because some shit’s going to happen up here.
It’s official that we are going to make another Superman movie. And you say, Zack, what is the movie about? But you don’t want me to tell you that. You want to go and see the movie. But I can say that maybe there’s a single element that will be in the film that I could… help you out with. I was thinking about how to do that. I pored through the DC Universe to look for a way to tell this thing. We’re writing the thing now, but I came across a thing I found that’ll help you understand it.

The image in the banner came on screen and a voiceover was done:

I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come, in all your most private moments, I want you to remember your hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you.

This line comes from the end of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. Snyder made it very clear that this will not be a direct adaptation, but will instead be used to help form a new story based on many cues from the source. Henry Cavill and the cast from Man of Steel are slated to reprise their roles, while the part of Batman has not yet been cast.

Press release after the jump!

Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill as Superman and is set for release on June 14, 2013.

New DC Animated feature trailer: Superman Unbound

The newest animated feature coming from DC Entertainment is Superman Unbound. We see Superman and Supergirl taking on Brainiac with lots of backstory concerning Brainiac’s attack on Krypton and the disappearance of its capital city, Kandor. The story is loosely based on the 2008 Action Comics plotline written by Geoff Johns.

The movie is due out later this year and will feature Matt Bomer as Superman, Molly Quinn as Supergirl, John Noble as Braniac and Stana Katic as Lois Lane.

Looks pretty interesting to me. I am happy to see the clear reference to Independence Day in the trailer.
