'Batman vs. Superman' Watch: Major Players In Place, Zimmer In Talks To Score Film


It's coming.. we can feel it.. any day now! - as cast and crew continue arriving at home base aka Detroit, we're thinking filming on Man of Steel 2 is about to begin (or is already underway). No official date has been given, but today cinematographer Larry Fong shared this exciting update from Michigan. Is that Ben in the background??
As we were first to report Sunday, photographer Clay Enos is now in Detroit. He shot most of the amazing pics you saw during the promo for Man of Steel, including the EW cover that featured Henry last April. Clay shared the update by including a picture of himself in costume during the filming of Man of Steel. He added the hashtag "Autumn Frost," which was the working title for the film (as you know Sage and Milo is the name for the sequel).

Today he shared this photo from the Michigan Motion Pictures Studios in Pontiac.


Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and trainer Mark Twight all arrived in Detroit over the weekend. New cast member Tao Okamoto, today showed us a bit of what the weather is like there for them right now (the beanie lives!).



So who is missing? Lois Lane herself! although she reportedly flew in Monday night. That's according to a teenager with a camera in a dark room somewhere in Detroit. Welcome to the Snowden era of reporting everyone. UPDATE 4/18: Yeah.. she's now in LA.


We're sure there's A LOT more of THAT on the way, but the news we can confirm, is that the very awesome Hans Zimmer is in talks to score Batman vs. Superman. He shared the news with Digital Spy:

"We've already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas." 
He goes on to talk about the only concerns he has about returning to score the Man of Steel sequel. Read the rest at Digital Spy.

We are big fans of Zimmer, because he's an amazing composer that puts together what can only be described as auditory works of art (check out some of the Man of Steel behind the scenes). But what we love is that he really connects with his fans. From Reddit Q&As to continued updates on Facebook and Twitter, to giving us a tour inside his studio, the man shares so much. Can't wait to see what he brings to Batman vs. Superman.

  

Warner Bros. is giving a shout out to Man of Steel for its win at the MTV Movie Awards. We know you really mean Henry WB.. ;)

As you know Man of Steel is now playing on HBO and for you UK fans, it will soon be available on Sky Movies that shared this new video with Henry previewing that cable premiere. Enjoy!



Filming news coming in fast now, and you can bet we'll be bringing it to you as it happens. If you live in the Detroit area and have tips/pictures/videos to share, we'd love to hear from you as well. Here we go everyone!

  1. Can't wait for the WW suit reveal. Some rumors say she will be an equal star with Batman and Superman in the film. I'd love that if, if she is portrayed as strong an independent. No silly romance please.

    Anyone else think Mulvey's character will be Steve Trevor?

  2. Most Mulvey spec sees him being Gotham's Commissioner Gordon. Just saying.

  4. There's some rumor that someone might have seen Henry in LA earlier tonight. I kind of doubt it because why would he suddenly go there now while everyone else is finally in Detroit, but idk what do you guys think?

    2. It is very unlikely Henry was in LA the last 3 months.He has been very dedicated to his training even staying in Detroit over Christmas to be in Superman worthy shape.Now with all the major players in place on the cusp of filming he would not be able to take the time to fly to LA and back with all the other demands in his day...just rumors

    3. Gina was probably in Detroit celebrating her birthday with Henry and their pup Kal..

  5. Like Gal Gadot and I'm happy to see her role in the film beefed up but not so much that it further takes away from Amy Adams screen time. With all the new characters Lois is going to have a smaller presence in the film. Get that but I want her to still have key scenes and not be reduced to little more than a glorified cameo presence.

  6. This film is NOT coming out soon enough, he's on Tudors for just a few minutes per episode, I've already watched all his films....there's just not enough Cavill out there!!! I know this is selfish, but if he was at least on the news or Good Morning America, I could get my daily fix.

  7. This doesn't have to do with the filming of the new MOS movie, but I am dying to find out more about how Gina Carano and Henry first met and when they began dating. I read somewhere online that someone saw a picture of Gina on the dashboard of the vehicle Henry was in in the Discovery channel's Driven to Extremes (filmed Aug. 25 -29, 2012). They were then together at a car show in England in Sept. 2012 with some pictures of their arms around each other's backs. That would make it appear that they began to see each other at least in Aug. 2012. Has anybody seen the dashboard picture?

    1. Henry is getting to the age where its time he thinks about marriage and starting a family. Ben and Jennifer were married when Ben was about Henry's age. If he wants kids - I assume he does as I've read he absolutely dotes over his 7 year old nephew.

    2. Is Henry close with any of his brothers? I've read 3 are quite a bit older and one is near his age. I never hear him mention his brothers or see photos of him with any of them. Except for the London premier of MOS.

    3. Regarding the dashboard pic, it's not Gina, it’s a group shot of people, you can’t even see if it’s actually even Henry. Some people think it was a group shot of Henry and the other driver and others who worked on the show, but it’s all guesswork. Also, I think general consensus is that he met Gina through Luke Evans in July/Aug 2012, probably at a Jessie J concert, so there’s no way he would be putting up a photo right on the dashboard of a girl he’d been seeing a few weeks! He has always been very private and that’s a weirdly showy thing to do – espec of a girl you barely knew, at that stage! IMO they met in July and started seeing each other, and by September were an official couple.

  8. Every body has them married already...slow down! They are just dating. He's focusing on his career right now, things are just getting good for him. He's young and has all the time in the world to settle down. All the pressure he's getting, he got a puppy and all of a sudden the media was saying "oh their going to get engaged!" so lame! I would be pissed because she would probably expect that next. This is his time and he should enjoy every minute of it. Once you get married and have children things are not the same, it's tuff to have a family and be successful. It's alot of pressure. Besides he should have fun and wait for the one that will make him want to jump on a couch!!! He deserves that and more.

    1. Gina may well be the one to make him jump on the couch, we just wouldn't know because he's not a nutjob like Tom Cruise... Henry would do any couch jumping in the privacy of his own home! Plus, I don't think he would be dating Gina if he didn't think he COULD end up with her, he's spoken several times about wanting a family so I don't think he'd be dating someone where he doesn't feel it's going to go anywhere now he's hit 30.

      BUT I totally agree with you that everyone is really jumping the gun, Henry and Gina haven't been together that long, I think about 1.5 years altogether. He is clearly focusing on his career right now and with the BvS movie taking up most of the year I don't think that will change in 2014. Same with Gina though, she's talking about fighting again so I really don't think she's desperate to settle down and have babies or is expecting a proposal!

  9. Hope he is having fun. I don't like that the film sites are mostly focusing on Affleck and Gadot news. Henry is the odd person out in the mix. My worry is if the film does well all credit goes solely to Batman/Affleck.Joke making the rounds is henry is the guest star in his own film.

    1. I don't like that either. By adding Batman into the mix, all the Superman naysayers having been yelling that "See, Superman can't carry a film". I'm not going to jump on the bandwagon & kiss anybody's ass regarding Batman/Wonder Woman. I wanted a Superman movie. Doesn't sound like I'm getting one.

      Delete
    2. Personally, I think film sites are focusing more on those two because they are so controversial. It sells. Many don't like their casting, but are hoping to be proven wrong.
      Also, I think studio's pr team is pushing them so hard in hopes of winning naysayers over. As a longtime bat fan, I am not happy about Affleck's casting. I am actually rooting for Superman (Henry Cavill) in this movie.
      Gadot is a unknown so I will be more open about her and acting.

  10. 30 is not old by the way, who says 30 is the mandatory age to get married? Crazy, as per Gina, nobody even knew who she was until she met Henry. She was not that great in MMA nobody cared for then and probably even less now. To say "end up with her" I wouldn't want to end up with anybody I doubt he would either.

  11. I agree, just because he's 30 does mean it's Time to settle down, he's Just getting started, and 30 is the new 20 so he has all the time in the world. He has a slew of other projects coming his way, can't imagine what's next for him.......

    1. Gina is the face and pioneer of Women's MMA. Gina has a huge fan base--it's probably larger than Henry's. So cut the hate on Gina that you have been spewing about her for the past year--Henry is with Gina because he wants to be with her.

    2. " 30 is the new 20"????!? What have you been drinking? #wishfulthinking

      Delete
    3. Actually no, and only some one who looks like crap at 30 would say that, Sad not wishful thinking.

      Delete
    4. Face of MMA? How many years ago? Get over it, and MMA blows anyway. You have fans and haters in everything, every one has the right to like and disagree. That's what makes it interesting. Can you imagine everyone agreed on the same things? Boring! So listen Gina's only fan, let it go it's ok...

    5. Yeah really, people are in better shape now in there 30's and 40's then when they were in there 20's, crazy.....

  12. I can't even see Henry being over shadowed by Afleck and Gadot, especially since the majority was not thrilled for any of these two playing these characters. Henry rules on all accounts, he is a great presence in this role. Afleck and Gadot are giving it a shot, it does not mean they will make the grade so I don't see them as leads really.

    1. I agree. Many are not happy with Afleck and Gadot casting. Henry Cavill did well in MOS which included a much stronger cast. MOS's had Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, Amy Adams, and Lawrence Fishborne. They are all amazing actors. I am confident Mr. Cavill will do fine.
