The Potential Superhero Line-Up for 'Justice League' Now Revealed?

It's 2013, which means this is finally the year for Superman to rise to the big screen again in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel (watch the most recent stunning trailer right here). That also means we'll finally know whether or not Snyder's take on The Big Blue Boy Scout will be the same version taking to the skies along with the superhero ensemble Justice League, which Warner Bros is still hoping to release in 2015. Well, someone at Cosmic Book News has a source at DC Entertainment that has revealed a few details on the superhero line-up that will be used. It's basically the line-up that everyone would expect from DC Comics. Read On.
Michael Keaton Wanted to Make a Third Batman Movie as a Prequel

By now many Batman fans have taken to writing off Tim Burton's first dark, successful adaptation of DC Comics' hero because of Christopher Nolan's more successful and critically acclaimed trilogy with Christian Bale. However, Batman and Batman Returns deserve a little more credit than they've been given for making comic book films more acceptable to audiences and also giving them a much less fantastical style and presence in cinema. Part of that success was the surprisingly good casting ofMichael Keaton as Bruce Wayne, and for those who aren't aware, he was going to team with Burton for a third film before it fell apart and Warner Bros. decided to go in a different (and terrible direction) with Joel Schumacher. Read on!

Maggie Gyllenhaal to Sing with Fassbender in Rock Comedy 'Frank'

While Michael Fassbender has taken on a good mix of serious projects and blockbusters since his ascent to the A-list, we're very curious about Frank, his upcoming attempt to step into more comedic territory. We don't know much about the film so far aside from the fact that it stars Domhall Gleeson (Bill Weasley from the Harry Potter series) as a young musician who joins a band full of crazy performers, with Fassbender as the wild title character who is the frontman of the group. Now Varietyhas a bit more info as they're reporting The Dark Knight star Maggie Gyllenhaal has just signed on as Frank's sidekick. Read More Here
Legendary's 'Godzilla' Getting a Darabont Rewrite & New Producers

While we anxiously await Guillermo del Toro's Godzilla-esque monsters movie this summer, Pacific Rim, there's an update on the Godzilla front that doesn't sound too good. I'm referring to Legendary Pictures / Warner Bros new Godzilla movie, scheduled for 2014 with Monsters director Gareth Edwards at the helm, teased at Comic-Con last year. Last we heard in October, Drew Pearce was being brought on to rewrite Max Borenstein's script. Now Deadline has confirmed a report from HitFix that two producers, Dan Lin and Roy Lee, are being ousted by the studio and instead, they've brought on the Frank Darabont for a rewrite.

Though Johnny Depp had once been rumored for a part in the long-gestating sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, his role has been taken by another big name instead. Deadline has word that The Dark Knight Rises and Looper star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is taking the role of Johnny, one of the core characters in the ensemble graphic novel adaptation. The sequel is already in production and Gordon-Levitt will shoot his role sometime this month. This means Gordon-Levitt will reunite with Bruce Willis, who Deadline says is returning for the comic book sequel along with Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson and Jessica Alba. Read More Here.
