Ben Affleck Defends Batman Casting: 'I Handle S**t'

The Batfleck finally speaks, Gotham!

After getting some superheroiffic backup from the likes of Matt Damon, Kevin Smith and even "The Wolverine" himself Hugh Jackman, Ben Affleck has finally dared to emerge from his Batcave — no, but seriously he did have one of those in his house at one point — and speak up for himself being cast as Batman in Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" follow-up, that "Batman Vs. Superman" project. Get More »

Justin Bieber may very well have spent the weekend following Floyd Mayweather around Vegas like a puppy, but one thing the Biebs was not doing — even though he'd obviously like you to believe he's cool enough to — was putting his grubby little mitts on that covetous "Batman Vs. Superman" script. 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.

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 »

'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 »

5 Things You Will Not See at Comic-Con This Year

Warner Bros. Warner Bros.

In case you haven't already noticed, the list of movie-related items expected to drop at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con event is, to put it mildly, incredibly extensive.

Just about all the major players are pullin' out the stops this year to get that geek street cred on lock ('cause nerds rule, yo!). So, while we're all optimistically jotting down little lists of things to be particularly jazzed about, things are going to be so busy, hectic and ridiculously awesome for just about anyone even remotely involved with the entertainment biz ... well, except for a few people.

Believe it or not, there are some franchises opting out of a day in the sun at America's Finest City ... and some pretty big ones, too. Get More »

Russell Crowe Signs On to Imaginary 'Man of Steel' Prequel

Warner Bros. Warner Bros.

With "Man of Steel" nearing the $600 million mark worldwide, Warner Bros is already hard at work on a sequel, while fans and industry experts are happily speculating over which villain is going to be next in line to get their neck snapped by Zack Snyder's ragingly emo Superman.

But while most folks are focused on the franchise's future, there's at least one bloke fixated on the past: "Man of Steel" co-star Russell Crowe, who revealed to the Twitterati this weekend that he's totes down for appearing in a "Man of Steel" prequel about Jor-El's time on Krypton.

If, you know, anything like that was actually happening. Get More »

Damon Lindelof Gives 'Man of Steel' A Thumbs Up

If you haven't heard of Damon Lindelof, you've surely heard of his work. (Does "Lost" ring a bell? "Prometheus"? "Star Trek Into Darkness," perhaps?)

You've also probably heard of some other movie that just came out that has sparked a debate among critics and audiences alike.

A self-proclaimed comic book fan, Lindelof recently shared with MTV Splash Page his opinions about the latest Superman installment, which has proven to be especially controversial among comic book fans. Get More »

'Man of Steel' Rumors: What Came True

Man of Steel Warner Bros.

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 »

'Man of Steel' Stars Talk Supersuits and Shirtless Scenes

The internet is no stranger to pictures of Henry Cavill lookin' all heroic (and pensive, and happy, and scared, and courageous, for that matter…)

But how does the actor himself feel about going shirtless and donning the iconic Superman suit in "Man of Steel"?

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 »
