Every movie has a rumor mill, but when your main character is Superman, it naturally becomes a super rumor mill. As anyone who has been following Zack Snyder's film over the past couple of years knows, rarely has there been a film with so many completely random, crazy and unsubstantiated rumors as "Man of Steel."
Which, of course, just made us even more curious to see the movie, if only to find out: Would all of those rumors turn out to be true? Would any of them turn out to be true? Get More »
Cavill, along with director Zack Snyder and co-stars Amy Adams and Michael Shannon, recently sat down with MTV News' Josh Horowitz to discuss what it was like to wear the super-famous, super-tight costume.
"The suit was amazing," Cavill said. "When I put it on for the first time, I didn't see me wearing an outfit, I felt like we were creating Superman in the room. And every time I was on set, people treated me differently when I was in the Superman outfit, and every time I was in it, I felt differently." Get More »
"Man of Steel" had a terrific opening weekend, but since it's never too early to put the cart before Comet the Super-Horse, director Zack Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan were already hard at work on a sequel even before the film opened. Which begs one major question: Who should be the villain?
After all, if there's any genre in movies that truly lives or dies on the strength of the villain, its superhero films. The good ones all have great villains (the Joker in "The Dark Knight," "The Avengers" foe Loki, Magneto from "X2") while the bad ones. .. don't (sorry, Venom in "Spider-Man 3" and cloud form Galactus in "4: Rise of the Silver Surfer").

It's official: Superman is back.
According to Film.com, the first and still greatest superhero set an all-time record for the biggest June debut in box office history, raking in a whopping $113 million to easily dominate the box office.
That was far more than the $20.5 million brought in by fellow new release "This Is The End." Not that Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and the rest of the comedy ensemble are complaining; with Wednesday and Thursday figures factored in, the apocalyptic farce earned $32.6 million overall, meaning it's already in the black.
For a full run down of the weekend's box office, including numbers for returning hits "Fast & Furious 6," "Star Trek Into Darkness" and "Iron Man 3," head to Film.com.
We all know that Warner Bros. has high hopes for "Man of Steel," especially after losing money on the last Superman reboot.
With "Marvel's The Avengers" and "Iron Man 3" both joining the billion dollar club, who could blame the studio that owns all of the DC Comics Universe characters for wanting their own post-"Harry Potter" billion dollar franchise? "Green Lantern" was a misfire, but "Man of Steel" should setup a future "Justice League" nicely. There's just one problem: they're gonna need a new Batman. Get More »
Even as Zack Snyder prepares to unleash "Man of Steel," the powerhouse director and producer has a comic book movie of a decidedly different bent in the pipeline.
The brand new trailer for next year's "300: Rise of an Empire" hit the web today. The movie sees Israeli born relative newcomer Noam Murro taking the reigns from "300" director Snyder, who stayed on as producer. Lena Headey was of course rightfully the subject of one of our "Hot People Looking Hot" features recently and she's returned as Queen Gorgo. Of course, most of the characters in "300" (spoiler alert) didn't make it to the final frame, so we've got a mostly new cast of oiled up beefcakes doing battle in this one. Get More »
With every new "Man of Steel" trailer and TV commercial, there's always a smattering of comments from naysayers suggesting that the latest interpretation of Superman is missing the mark.
True, the new dark and moody translation is indeed a far cry from the spit-shiny slice of Rockwellian Americana that Superman has always exemplified. However, superhero purists should be grateful that Henry Cavill's latest iteration of Big Blue only deviates from the classic Superman formula by lacking red underpants and being a little more frowny than usual.
After all, he could be a little person. Wearing a dog mask. Talking to a hand puppet. Get More »
Handsome Nerd Henry Cavill Almost Missed 'Man Of Steel' Call Because He Was Playing 'World Of Warcraft'
Last night on Jay Leno's "The Tonight Show" (via Uproxx), new Superman Henry Cavill, whose jawline was recently classified as a weapon of mass destruction, revealed that he almost missed the call from director Zack Snyder to appear in "Man of Steel"... because he was playing an immersive videogame on the computer. Even after revealing this super nerdy detail he probably had sex with two dozen supermodels, was crowned king of the pirates and became the spokesperson for a designer men's watch.
"I'm a big PC gamer and I was playing an online game called 'World of Warcraft,'" Cavill explained to Leno. "I was playing this game and you can't save it. You can't pause or anything and other people are relying on you to play on a team. And it was a highpoint of the game. And so the phone's ringing and I'm ignoring it, because I'm not going to bail on these guys. And I look down and it's Zack Snyder calling, so I dive for the phone, and I missed the call from Zack Snyder, the one I'd been waiting for, for Man of Steel." Get More »
To recap, ever since Marvel starting building their "cinematic universe," with stand-alone films introducing several major (and some not-so-major) superheroes, which crescendoed brilliantly with last summer's team-up movie "The Avengers," comic book fans and casual moviegoers alike have been wondering when Warner Bros., slinger of all-things-DC Comics, would adopt a similar approach.

"Man of Steel" ain't gonna be your daddy's "Superman," k?
A new TV spot for the super-serious Zack Snyder rendition of The Big Blue Boy Scout reinforces the December trailer's message that Henry Cavill will be presenting one heavy-hearted, stern-faced son of a gun in this movie, as he searches for his place in a world which he maybe doesn't belong to. Or does? Get More »
