A few years ago actress Lake Bell dropped a bombshell on fanboys at San Diego ComicCon when she declared that she had the moxy (and the guns) to play Wonder Woman. Since then the role has been occupied by Adrianne Palicki in a famously failed TV pilot and by Kimberly Kane in a XXX parody.
Sounds like the big-screen iteration of the gig is still available, and there's still a glimmer of hope that someday, DC's long-delayed "Justice League" movie will actually be produced. During an interview promoting her survival thriller "Black Rock," we checked in with Bell to find out whether she's still looking to get into the spandex-and-spangles game. Get More »
The fact that "Man of Steel," director Zack Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated Superman reboot, is going to serve as the first chapter of a much larger on-screen DC character universe should come as no surprise. What is surprising is that someone at Warner Bros. has finally officially confirmed that that's indeed the plan.
"['Man of Steel'] is setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward. In that, it's definitely a first step," said Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly. Get More »
The cast members of "Parks and Recreation" are practically superheroes to us already. The way they work together to bring justice to the town of Pawnee, Indiana is just remarkable. So why not make it official and slap a Batman mask over Ron Swanson's head? (Completed with a cutout for his mustache, of course.) Get More »
Rumors have been swirling about what Warner Bros. is going to do with their mountain of DC superheroes in the wake of Marvel's dazzling success with "The Avengers," but the studio has backtracked on Will Beall's script and may be unable to reach their 2015 release date for "Justice League."
Or can they? The (frequently correct) rumor mongers over at Latino Review have just posted a video claiming to have inside info that the masterminds behind this summer's "Man of Steel" (Christopher Nolan, Zack Snyder, David Goyer) will be taking the reigns of the entire DC Universe, with Snyder directing Justice League and… *drumroll* Christian Bale returning as Batman!

With the overwhelming success of "The Avengers" this summer, it pretty much became a no-brainer that Warner Bros. would be fast-tracking a "Justice League" movie starring their own iconic superheroes, such as Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. But while Marvel has spent years carefully creating their shared universe, Warner Bros. has been going the opposite direction, with none of their superhero films having any connection to each other. So how are they going to set up "Justice League?"
Well, how about by making it a direct sequel to "The Dark Knight Rises?" Get More »
If you thought the back-to-back excitement of "The Avengers" and "The Dark Knight Rises" made this year the best year for superhero movies ever, you ain't seen nothing yet, because it turns out this was just a prelude for yea real year of the superhero: 2015.
That's because The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Warner Bros. is moving forward with plans to release its long awaited "Justice League" movie in 2015 — the same summer Marvel will be unveiling "The Avengers 2."
Hell yeah! Get More »
It's looking more and more likely that Joseph Gordon-Levitt's days of stalking around Gotham City in a cape and cowl have ended before they ever really started. By the end of "The Dark Knight Rises," Gordon-Levitt's optimistic beat cop John Blake — real name Robin, as it turns out — discovered Bruce Wayne's abandoned Batcave, leaving him the heir apparent to Batman's legacy in Gotham.
Gordon-Levitt hasn't been shy about his beliefs that the ending of "Rises" wasn't meant to be a "to be continued," but a decisive conclusion to the "Dark Knight" trilogy and its themes. Given that Christopher Nolan has also said that he won't be involved in future Batman films, it's a safe bet that further appearances of JGL in Gotham aren't in the cards, either.
But how about that "Justice League" movie that Warner Bros. is currently assembling? It's unclear at the moment how WB plans to connect their superhero team-up (rumored to hit theaters in 2015, the same year as Marvel and Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel) to the "Dark Knight" trilogy, if at all. But for the sake of argument, let's say Gordon-Levitt was approached to be a part of "Justice League" — would he even be interested in signing on?
Is it possible to get nostalgic for something that isn't actually over yet? That's the question facing fans of 'The Dark Knight Trilogy" today, as Batman on Film is reporting that Warner Bros. is already gearing up for a franchise reboot before "The Dark Knight Rises" is even out of theaters.
But hey, at least he'll be bringing the "Justice League" with him. Get More »
When reports surfaced earlier this month that Ben Affleck was being courted to direct the upcoming Warner Bros. superhero romp "Justice League," fans were pretty stoked. After all, Affleck has come a long, long way since his "Daredevil" days and with his star power behind the camera, the long delayed franchise looked to be in good hands.
But according to 24 Hours, Warner Bros. is going to have to head back to the drawing board yet again, as Affleck has denied that he will be directing "Justice League" after all.
Oh well. Thirty-fifth time's the charm, right? Get More »
Ben Franklin once famously said that there are only two things in life that are certain: death and taxes. That's only because he died before he had a chance to see "The Avengers," though, as once that film made over $600 million (!) dollars in America alone, it became a stone cold lock that Warner Bros. would make a "Justice League" movie.
Well, Ben Franklin may have had a hard time imagining "Justice League," but Ben Affleck apparently has no such difficulty, because according to Coming Soon, Affleck is Warner Bros. number-one pick to direct the superhero extravaganza. Get More »
