Batman and Superman Movie Warner Bros.

With Christian Bale out of the Batman picture for good, director Zack Snyder's got some serious wheel-turning to do over who he'll choose to put on the black cape next for his "Man of Steel" follow-up, set to crossover the Big Blue Boy Scout with Gotham City's very finest in 2015.

There comes a time in every girl's life when she must decide which hard-bitten-yet-handsome gentleman from an upcoming cop drama she'd most like to take home to Mom and Dad. (Isn't there?) Now that the Jan. 11 release date of "Gangster Squad" is upon us, it's time to make the call: Is it Nick Nolte who will wait for you at the end of the perp walk aisle? Josh Brolin whose detective skills will equip him for a very, ahem, intimate inspection? Ryan Gosling who will meet a noir-style, gritty end at the barrel of a gun? (Or at the bottom of a long drop, not that we've thought about it too much.)

Yes, the time has come for Eff, Marry, Kill: "Gangster Squad" Edition. Get More »
