Snyder Gets Racy with Batmobile Tease

12 May

SnyderBatmobileHoly Heart attack Batman! Can I keep my beating organ at a steady rate when Zack Snyder, director of the Batman Vs. Superman feature film, reveals the newest incarnation of the Batmobile tomorrow? In all honesty, I’ll try. But I make no guarantee I won’t need a defibrillator when Gotham’s sick ride is made known.

Batman Vs. Superman is currently set to debut May 6, 2016 and will star Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne / Batman), Henry Cavill (Clark Kent / Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince / Wonder Woman), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), and Jeremy Irons (Alfred).

Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman

DC Comic’s holy triumvirate will kickstart the movie universe right in the shins and hopefully race on ahead to plans for a Justice League film. As for whether or not that will work is not the question right now. Instead, the attention will be on giving Wonder Woman the love thats needed in a mostly machismo universe. That’s been established with the recent reboot of Superman and in fitting in with the continuity that started with Christopher Nolan’s Batman.

But with Zack Snyder behind this product, the information that Israeli-born actress Gal Gadot will be playing a warrior-princess from Themyscira is exciting. She is best known for playing Gisele Harabo in the Fast and the Furious film series and this model won the title of Miss Israel in 2004. To have a foreign presence is fitting since this character is from the Mediterranean area. But little is known about this actress since her filmography is relatively on the short side. Her online bio states she served the Israeli Army for a time and this experience will no doubt serve her well when she starts training to really look the role.

But after this film, her presence in Hollywood will no doubt be on the rise.

Superman Celebrates 75 Years With Special Treats This Month

I have to say this, but Superman is a partially Canadian invention, and he’s being honoured with several 75th anniversary commemorative coins by the Royal Canadian Mint this year.

Cleveland born Jerry Siegel and Toronto born Joe Shuster created this iconic character, and their simple ideals were at the forefront of what the Golden Age character was like. Superman’s ideals hardly ever changed in comic-book land. While the films took on a different front, that’s hardly the point of what I found great about this superhero. He’ll always be the ideal boy scout. This hero is supposed to represent the best of what the United States of America should be like. And I’ll leave the commentary about current political climate out of this exposition.

*Spoiler Alert

When Cartoon Network’s DC Nation is now comprised of Beware the Batman and Go Teen Titans Go, just where will comic fans get their Justice League fix? With Young Justice gone, fans of DC’s animated products do not have much left over to enjoy. This particular universe has a great diversity and great storytelling backing it. But with the new products showing a divergence than convergence, only the direct to video releases, namely Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox will prove that there can be only one.

void(0)By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

DC Fans can rejoice. At San Diego Comic Con 2013, Zack Synder said he will be working on a sequel to Man of Steel and Warner Bros. confirmed that Batman and Superman will meet! The few details revealed confirms that Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will reprise their roles and David Goyer will write the script. The creative team who brought this reboot of Superman to a new generation will be kept.

Production is expected to begin in 2014 for a Summer 2015 release. Now the big question is, just who will be the Batman? As most viewers will know, Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) has “retired” and the mantle may well be passed on to a younger passionate John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt).
