So, basically, John Conner as a Terminator… that’s a twist…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer ready to go

Batman on Film came with this scoop and, while the site had quite a few rumors that proved to be true, this should be taken with the usual grain of salt. It appears that the first teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is already done and that it will be first viewed with one of this fall’s movies. Most likely, it will be featured before a November or December release.

But, given the release date (25th of March 2016), isn’t it too early? Just asking.

Anyway, the same website reports that it will be a Batman-centric teaser trailer.

Is Lex Luthor part of the Suicide Squad

While about a week ago it was announced that Warner Bros and DC want Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Tom Hardy for their dirty dozen with supervillains, Deadline reports one addition (probable) cast member: Jesse Eisenberg.

If this happens and Lex Luthor will appear in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, does this mean that we know what will happen to Superman’s archnemesis by the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Well, it may appear so.

But this isn’t an official announcement and, given the fact that Jesse Eisenberg also eyes a role in Todd Phillips’ Arms and The Dudes (which means that he can’t make both of them at the same time), we just have to wait. So, the usual grain of salt should be taken.

New teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron announced

It seems that Hydra did’t actually foil Marvel’s plans when it leaked the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, thus forcing the studio to give up their previous plans (the trailer was scheduled for release next week, during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.): the trailer smashed all the previous records, being watched by about 35 million viewers, which is almost 20 million viewers more than the trailer of Iron Man 3.

So, to that respect, Marvel has made the following announcement:

Tune in to “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” this Tuesday, October 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC to see an exclusive piece from Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Then, on Tuesday, November 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC, tune into “Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop!” for another taste of Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”–and much more!

Counting the days until the release!

Is this the Mummy reboot opening scene?

Take this with the usual pinch of salt:

The story follows Navy Seal Tyler Colt and his mission in the Iraqi desert to find a group of terrorists hiding out in a bunker. To him and his teams surprise the terrorists within the bunker turn out be nothing more then some grave robbers who have all magically died. Upon entering the bunker Tyler and his team also succumb to some mystical forces out of their control. They soon realize the bunker they have infiltrated is actually a centuries old tomb. Mayhem erupts as all the Navy seal members start turning on one another and are captivated by the forces within the tomb. Tyler is the only one to make it all the way deep within the tomb alive to find an Black Iron Sarcophagus. It’s marked with Egyptian symbols like the Ankh and Eye of Horus. Here Tyler is entranced by the forces to open up and release what is inside. But after placing his hand onto the sarcophagus he is immediately stabbed in the palm with a star shaped symbol. From then on his mind is cursed with visions of Ashurbanipal, King of Assyria…..The Mummy.

The Mummy will be directed by Alex Kurtzman (which will also be his debut) and is intended to be a part of the larger universe (called the Monsterverse), currently developed by Universal.

The release date for The Mummy is scheduled on the 24th of June 2016.

New Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice details

Latino Review reports that, a couple of on set people have confirmed the occasion for the party thrown by Lex Luthor. It is the reopening of Metropolis Central Library post the battle for Metropolis. Lexcorp funded the construction because “Intellect is man’s biggest strength” which seems to be a direct shot at Superman.Other small details tied to that scene, the movie will have an almost red carpet montage where the rich and famous are asked their views about the Superman who appeared in the public eye recently. The red carpet setup is attached, and will include both Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor being asked that question by Lois Lane and Clark Kent on the carpet.

If it sounds a little weird for a Pulitzer winner to actually go as a reporter at a red carpet event, then you are not alone. However, it all depends on what Louise Lane wants to know about this particular perspective of the rich and famous, as well as what she wants to do with the information.

As far as Clark is concerned, he is just being there – after all, he is partly to blame for all the destruction, so he must want to know how people have welcomed him.

There are still no details as to why Bruce Wayne will fight Lex Luthor.

Adam McKay for mystery Marvel movie

Adam McKay (Anchorman 2): ”I just did a big rewrite on Ant-Man with Paul Rudd and had such a great time working with [Marvel] that we’re kicking around ideas. But yeah, maybe I would take on one of the characters so we haven’t locked in anything, but discussions are definitely going on.

Well, since all the other projects already have their directors, there is only one left which is also announced. If you have seen the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, then you definitely spotted Andy Serkis. The word on the web is that he is actually Ulysses Klaw, who is in fact the main antagonist of Black Panther.

Could it be?
