Twitter Pics From The 'Batman vs. Superman' Set? Don't Count On It

    Henry gets ready to film a scene for Man of Steel (Blu-ray extras) 

We can't say we're not jealous. In the last 24 hours, the stars of  The Avengers sequel have been creating buzz for the start of filming by tweeting pics from the set. So of course our first thought was, what if..

K-Lor is... RIGHT. At least not when it comes to Batman vs. Superman cinematographer Larry Fong. How do we know? well, because we asked him.


Didn't we tell you he was funny?.. but it does sound like that's a wise decision. Turns out Mark Ruffalo got in trouble for the photos he shared on twitter. Guess he doesn't have that Robert Downey Jr. clout.


You probably also saw the headlines, about Disney considering moving Captain America 3 so it wouldn't compete with Batman vs. Superman come May 6, 2016. The Hollywood Reporter has an update.


With the sequel on course to eclipse the $668 million earned worldwide by Superman pic "Man of Steel," sources reiterate Disney has no intention of moving the next "Captain America" in order to avoid a direct showdown with "Batman-Superman."

So the public "battle of the studios" continues, despite the fact that we all know SOMEONE. IS. MOVING.

Back to the set pics, despite what Larry Fong told us we're still hoping Warner Bros. incorporates some social media fun into the promo for the Man of Steel sequel. We did already get a teaser pic. You never know what could come next. Updates from Detroit as we get them!

  1. Sadly Captain 2 is what MOS should have been. If I were a betting person I'd say Captain 3 will beat Batman vs Superman.

    1. Captain America 2 is a sequel. Marvel had a chance to work out all it flaws from the first movie. The first Captain America movie made less money compare to the other Marvel origin movies. MOS made more money then it.
      It sounds like DC is doing the same with MOS II. We should wait and see how it comes out.

    2. No. MOS2 is a Batman and Superman film. Does anyone believe Batman/Affleck won't be the effective star. Marvel gave Cap a real follow-up film and won the day. WB, whether they didn't have confidence in Superman or Cavill to carry another film or whether they wanted JL right away - or a mix of both, did not give MOS a follow-up.

    3. Snyder has stated already more then once that he had planned to include Batman in sequel even before MOS release.
      Also Affleck is an effective director not star. Many don't feel he can be really effective as Batman. His last movie "Runner, Runner" was a bomb. He received a lot of negative reviews for his acting.
      MOS II is a follow up because it suppose to deal with the aftermath of the invasion and how people feel about Superman. That is the reason why Batman and Luthor are both the in this movie. They provide conflict.
      Finally, Captain America had two prior movies to develop him-Captain America and Avengers. Is it a surprise Captain America II did so well?

  2. Batman/Superman will only do well if it has a good storyline and great characterization. No longer believe putting Batman and Superman on screen automatically makes the film huge. WB and Snyder better not blow this. So wish Henry had gone the Marvel route. He is a decade late. Captain America is the new Superman and Henry should have been playing Captain America.

    1. I think every is getting discouraged with MOS2 (not really a sequel) and so it is disheartening to say that by the time this film hits theatres people are just not going to feel it. Captain America has the advantage at this point.

    2. Transformers 2 being absolute poop didn't stop Transformers 3 from making even more money.

  3. Maybe move the film to December 2016?
