WARNER BROS. PICTURES REVEALS SUPERLATIVE LINE-UP FOR THIS YEAR’S COMIC-CON

The Studio gets set to hit Hall H with Fan Favorites and a few surprises.

BURBANK, CA, July 1, 2015 – Warner Bros. Pictures continues its tradition of delivering its most anticipated tentpole properties and their biggest stars to Comic-Con International: San Diego with this year’s Hall H presentation.

On Saturday, July 11, beginning at 10:30 a.m., Warner Bros. will showcase several of its upcoming feature releases and offer up a surprise or two as well.

Keen to deliver a taste of one of next year’s most eagerly awaited pairings, director Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill take the main stage with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” They are joined by castmates Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot for a sneak peek at the 2016 action adventure that brings the Super Heroes together on the big screen for the very first time, from Warner Bros. Pictures and RatPac-Dune Entertainment.

From “Pan,” Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund and Peter himself, Levi Miller, together with director Joe Wright, soar into town with their high-flying adventure, coming to theaters this fall from Warner Bros. Pictures and RatPac-Dune Entertainment.

And Cavill once again takes the stage, this time with Armie Hammer, a duo with a very different dynamic in this summer’s fresh, über-stylish actioner from filmmaker Guy Ritchie, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” along with fellow stars Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki.

Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, stated, “Comic-Con provides us a fantastic opportunity to interact with the fans and this year, as with every year, our aim is to surpass their expectations. We’re also thrilled to give our filmmakers and talent a chance to experience the unique energy and enthusiasm of Comic-Con.”

With “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and “Pan” headlining the bill, Warner Bros. will also present some unexpected offerings that are sure to delight the crowd.

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” has a March 25, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto in new character roles for the film. Justice League is to follow directed by Zack Snyder as well.

Synopsis:

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman Vs. Superman & Suicide Squad Footage Shown Off At CineEurope

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:21136:]]

Today at the CineEurope trade show, Warner Bros. showed off a sizzle reel featuring footage from Batman Vs. Superman and Suicide Squad.

None of the footage has made its way online, but with WB showing off footage from the two movies, more than likely new trailers and/or footage for Batman Vs. Superman and Suicide Squad will be revealed at Comic-Con as well.

Update: The footage shown is described to be a roll call with every character revealed in detail. Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is featured as a major part of a scene that was showed off, with Jared Leto’s Joker laugh revealed. 

Update #2: Jai Courtney will be in attendance at Comic-Con for Batman vs Superman and the Suicide Squad panel.

WB is speculated to have a major presence in Hall H Saturday night, July 11th, at Comic-Con as Jesse Eisenberg has already confirmed he will be in attendance for Batman Vs. Superman, which more than likely means the other cast members, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and more, will also be present in addition to director Zack Snyder.

It’s also reported at CineEurope, WB showed off new trailers and footage for their other movies including Pan, The Man From UNCLE and Black Mass.

Henry Cavill Attends CinemaCon: Talks Batman Vs. Superman

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:20170:]]

Prior to teaming with Ben Affleck in Batman Vs. Superman, Henry Cavill is teaming with the 2008 Justice League Batman, Armie Hammer, for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Both Cavill and Hammer were in attendance in Las Vegas for the WB presentation.

Regarding Batman Vs. Superman, Cavill stated, in the below video, he might be attending Comic-Con this July, but noted “things can change” with a a smile. Cavill also side-stepped questioning in regards to how Batman Vs. Superman was different than filming Man of Steel. Man From UNCLE co-star Armie Hammer then asked Cavill about working with Ben Affleck, with Cavill replying, he is “very excited, actually.” The two then went on to joke about not answering any more questions.

Update: A second video of Cavill from the event has surfaced (see below) where he offers he has seen just a little bit more of the Batman Vs. Superman footage, but says it wasn’t much as it was in black-and-white. Cavill also says he wouldn’t call it a Superman sequel: “This is Batman versus Superman. It’s a separate entity altogether. It’s introducing the Batman character and expanding upon the universe, which was kicked off by Man of Steel. It’s definitely an introduction to the character and ultimately an introduction to Justice League.”

At the WB presentation, Warner Bros. Chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujijara spoke to the exhibitors reiterating WB’s plans to release ten DC Comic book movies starting with 2016’s Batman Vs. Superman with more movies all the way to 2020. Tsujijara also made mention of the recently announced three LEGO movies and also said at least three Harry Potter spinoffs of the Fantastic Beasts series will be released, with the first due out November 2016. Following the presentation, the Batman Vs. Superman trailer was shown to the audience.

“While tentpoles and franchises are important to us and to you they are just one part of what we do. We’re also very excited about the wide variety of comedies, dramas, action adventures and horror films that we’re making,” Tsujijara said. “These films allow us to reach broad and underserved audiences and they create the opportunity for breakout hits like The Lego Movie, The Conjuring and that little film that exceeded everyone’s expectations, American Sniper… We’re committed to bringing you great films throughout the year, not just the summer and holidays…this time next year I will be here, or somebody who replaces me, will be talking about the great success we had with Pan in October.”

“The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” has an August 14, 2015 release; “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” hits March 25, 2016.

New Henry Cavill & Armie Hammer Man From U.N.C.L.E. Set Images

Filming continues on the The Man From U.N.C.L.E. where more set images have hit the net of Henry Cavill, as well as Armie Hammer and Hugh Grant.

Cavill plays Napoleon Solo, a CIA Agent who gets paired up with Russian KGB Agent, Illya Kuryakin, played by Armie Hammer. Grant plays Alexander Waverly, the British head of the multi-national intelligence organization U.N.C.L.E.

It’s sort of interesting that Cavill gets paired up with an at-one-time-Batman with Armie Hammer, once attached to the Dark Knight in the defunct 2008 Justice League movie, while Ben Affleck was paired up with the younger Justin Timberlake in Runner, Runner, playing an egotistical rich gambling tycoon. Seems some parallels are present for Batman Vs. Superman.

BURBANK, CA, September 3, 2013 – Principal photography will begin on September 9 on Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”  The film is the first to be made under filmmaker Guy Ritchie’s and producer Lionel Wigram’s new production shingle, Ritchie/Wigram Productions, which has a first-look deal with Warner Bros.  Having successfully re-imagined the classic detective Sherlock Holmes in two hit films, the pair now bring their fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series by bringing super spies Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin to the big screen.

Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin.  Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology.  The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

Henry Cavill Said To Be Up For Man From U.N.C.L.E – With Armie Hammer

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:8081:]]

Add yet another rumored movie for rising star Henry Cavill, who will don the cape for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel come June, as the new Superman is said to be a contender for WB’s Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Presently, the Guy Ritchie-helmed Man From U.N.C.L.E. only has the one time Batman attached, Armie Hammer.

Tom Cruise was most recently up for a lead role but bailed on the project; it’s now said that Henry Cavill is in contention.

It’s also said Cavill was at one time up for Hammer’s part as well.

Variety says that Cavill’s schedule is “wide open having not set up his next film,” but we are not sure if that is indeed the case as Henry signed on for a three-picture deal with Man of Steel, and it’s rumored Justice League is next.

It looks as if WB will be announcing what’s next for Cavill at this Summer’s Comic-Con.

Henry Cavill is also rumored for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, and according to his IMDb, The Great Wall is in pre-production.

Armie Hammer currently has The Lone Ranger coming out July 3rd with Johnny Depp.
