See Ohio State Marching Band's Amazing Movie-Themed Halftime Routine

This weekend, while the Ohio State Buckeyes took a halftime break from their utter annihilation of Penn State, the school's marching band decided to pitch in with their own brand of day-ownage as well and performed one helluva movie-themed routine.

Dubbed the "Hollywood Blockbuster" halftime show, these OSU marchers pulled out all the stops to give a little homage to their favorite film franchises, and what's really interesting is that all of their choices are pretty relevant to today's market as well. Get More »

The 9 Dumbest Plot Points of Summer 2013

Man of Steel Warner Bros.

All told the movies of summer 2013 would have to get an A … for Average. Well, or maybe a B, for Blah. There were a few high points ("Iron Man Three," "The Conjuring," "This Is the End"), a few low points ("The Lone Ranger," "After Earth," "R.I.P.D."), and a whole mess that landed somewhere in-between.

What seemed to really come in abundance, though, in movies of varying degrees of quality, were head-scratching plot points, the things that made you go, "Hmmm … that was f**king stupid." Get More »

Shut off the Bat-Signal, he's finally here: Ben Affleck will be the next to don Batman's cowl, Warner Bros. announced today.

Affleck will slip into Bruce Wayne's polished shoes for the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie, replacing Christian Bale, who refused buckets of money to reprise the role he played in Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy. Get More »

Bryan Cranston As Lex Luthor? Yes, Please!

With all due respect to Gene Hackman, John Shea, Michael Rosenbaum, Kevin Spacey and all those other dudes who bravely put razor to scalp to become Superman's arch-rival Lex Luthor on the big or small screen, the most picaresque fella for the job might just be "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston.

With his show being officially dunzo and a "Batman Vs. Superman" movie on deck to follow up Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel," well, the planets seem to have aligned on that note indeed! And Cranston is totally down for the job, too, because obviously. Get More »

Guess Who's Being Considered to Play Batman in the 'Man of Steel' Follow-Up

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.

And it looks like there might already be a few frontrunners for the coveted gig of the Caped Crusader — though nothing's even remotely official yet as it's script drafts, not talent offers, which are currently crowding the guy's table.  Get More »

Armie Hammer Talks About Why He Won't Play a Superhero

We're all for some Hollywood bromance action (here's to you, Benedict and Matt), and we think we may have just found another pair to add to our list.

In a recent interview with Metro, "The Lone Ranger" star Armie Hammer revealed his feelings toward Henry Cavill (swoon) and what's next for the hunky duo — especially with all of those Batman vs. Superman rumors circling around.

According to Variety, Hammer was initially cast as Batman in Warner Brothers' "Justice League" movie back in 2008. Although the George Miller film didn't pan out, Hammer went on to star in 2010's "The Social Network" (times two) and is gettin' a lot of love from the ladies... so it doesn't seem like he's regretting much. In fact, the actor says he doesn't have any interest in playing the caped crusader, now or ever. Get More »

These Silhouettes Capture the Origins of Your Favorite Superheroes

Creative Bloq Creative Bloq

Everyone loves a good superhero movie. But with all of these remakes, reboots, prequels and sequels (see: "Man of Steel", "The Amazing Spider-Man", "The Wolverine", this new "Batman vs. Superman" business, et al.), it seems as if we've been watching the same films over and over again, just with a different set of actors and a few tweaks here and there.

However, there is a reason why those big Hollywood execs think these movies are worth rebooting: because they're gonna sell. Audiences have come to idolize and identify with these iconic characters and their journeys — so much that we're willing to watch their stories get re-hashed on the big screen time and time again.

Artist Khoa Ho has beautifully captured this sense of timelessness in his new poster series, which is aptly titled "Trials of the Past." In these illustrations, Ho puts his own spin on the classic superheroes we've all come to know and love. Get More »

'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' & 7 Other Movie Mulligans

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Fox

When Hollywood dishes out big bucks to make a brand name movie, there are generally some huge expectations. Sequels! Toys! A themed ride at Universal Studios!

But when that movie alienates fanboys, draws the ire of critics, is generally a pile of crap, and, most importantly, fails to make enough cash money, all bets are off. And usually, instead of humanely laying an ill-received film to rest, the powers that be beg audiences for another shot at a franchise — henceforth known as a "movie mulligan." Get More »

'Batman' and 'Superman' Movie Might Just Have a Name Already

Batman and Superman Movie Warner Bros.

This weekend Warner Bros. made us geeks in Comic Con's cathedral-like Hall H have to rush to the bathroom to change those Wonder Woman underoos after they announced that the follow-up to this summer's smash-tastic "Man of Steel" wouldn't be a straight sequel but would instead be a team-up movie along the lines of the "World's Finest" comic books, combining both Superman (Henry Cavill) and a new Batman (who has yet to be cast). The creative team behind "Man of Steel" — director Zack Snyder, screenwriter David S. Goyer and producer Christopher Nolan — are all returning for the project, along with much of the "Man of Steel" cast, so this thing is legit.

But what oh what will such a movie be called, we wondered (especially in light of the big "Avengers 2: Age of Ultron" mind melt that also happened at SDCC). Scribe Goyer, for one, seems to suggest that we should expect to see a "Vs." tag in there somewhere between the two heroes' names. Get More »

Henry Cavill: 'I Know Nothing About Man of Steel 2'

[From MTV News] Newly minted box-office hero Henry Cavill played it coy when it came to talk of a rumored "Man of Steel" sequel, but one of his co-stars was a bit more forthcoming at Friday night's Superman 75th Anniversary Celebration bash at San Diego Comic-Con.

"It looks like it's going to happen," Harry Lennix, the man who played General Swanwick (and worked for "Avengers" director Joss Whedon on the short-lived TV series "Dollhouse"), confidently told MTV.

Cavill himself wasn't ready to make such bold declarations. "I don't know anything about 'Man of Steel 2' yet. I don't even know if it's going ahead," insisted the British actor, who has no doubt dodged that line of questioning for months now."

"Nothing in Hollywood is a safe bet," he added. "It's not done till it's done."
