Batman v Superman: "Kind Of Like This Big Fest Of Muscles"


Did someone say Muscle Fest?? when you put it THAT way, you're not gonna hear us complaining. Amy has been busy doing press for "Big Eyes," and of course journalists are not missing their chance to ask her about Lois Lane in Batman v Superman.


"Lois is still sort of like the key to the information, you know? She’s the girl going out and getting it and figuring it out and putting it together and all of that, so she’s very much involved, but I kind of leave the heavy lifting to the boys, you know? So to speak.”

Keep going..


“They’re awesome together. It’s kind of like this big fest of muscles … it was really kind of nice. And then you add Jason Momoa and Gal Gadot and I felt very short and, yeah.”


And theeere's that pain that reminds us we have to wait until March of 2016 to see these guys in action (for you Momoa fans, thanks to those Sony hackers we do know who's likely directing Aquaman).

Amy also confirmed there will not be a love triangle involving Supes, Lois, and Wonder Woman. What? not even a little flirting??

“They always think that if you put in another woman and automatically… ‘Catfight!’ No, I think that’s a male fantasy thing. I don’t think that’s reality.”


So "Clois" lovers you can rejoice.. for now (insert flirtmoji)..


"I don’t know how it will turn out, if we’re going to be competition, but we are not in this, I can safely say."


Don't get us wrong, we love the Lois and Clark dynamic -- but Supes and Wonder Woman? chemistry x 1000. HOT.


Bring it, Justice League! - but first let's finish filming Batman v Superman.

Is it really done? we thought it was, when the cinematographer called it. but then came Zack Snyder with his cryptic tweet, thanking New Mexico for the time he spent filming there. While the info released by the New Mexico Film Office around the same time indicated it was in fact the end of principal photography, now there's a casting call for a young Ben Affleck. To be continued..

This past week we also got an update from Jeremy Irons, on his role as Alfred in the film. Check it out at Indie Wire.

It's no secret John Hamm's name was among those rumored to be in contention for the role of Superman, that eventually went to Henry. Now Hamm is talking about his reasons for not wanting the superhero opportunities that have reportedly come his way:

“The deals that they make you do are so draconian. And, of course, you are signed on for not only the movie that you are signed on for… but at least two more that you haven’t read and you have no idea what they are going to be and all the crossover ones you are going to have to do."

But speaking to the Radio Times he also acknowledged, that means he may not be as well known by the younger crowd:

“It doesn’t compute to the generation that most of Hollywood cares about, If your last name’s not Hemsworth or you are not in One Direction or you don’t wear a cape and tights for a living, you literally have a hard time making an impression.”


Henry is certainly leaving his mark as Superman, and not just because he looks the part. He really seems to be enjoying the role, and it most definitely reflects on the big screen.

  2. High hopes for a shirtless scene from Henry in this. I think it is going to be awe-inspiring.

  3. Actually agree with you about chemistry between Superman and Wonder Woman. The Lois and Clark relationship has been done so many times already, be it on the big or small screen Superman movies or TV shows. While it made sense then as they are Superman shows, this movie will lead into Justice League so the Superman and Wonder Woman interaction is possible. Why didn't they exploit this? Oh well, I'll just stick with the new 52 comic book series to get my Superman and Wonder Woman romance.

    1. Oh, it's too soon. The Clois backlash would be off the charts and backfire on them. Having said that, the fact that Amy basically left the possibility open in her answer, to us means there's a good chance at the very least we'll get some heavy flirting in JL 1 or 2. Wouldn't hold my breath for an all out romance like in the new 52 though.

    2. Well, as the title of this movie is Batman vs Superman, I would prefer that they make a movie faithful to the title -- I want to see a movie that explores the relationship between these two super heroes, because the "bromance" between the two of them has never been explored in the big screen before. Much as I respect Amy Adams as an actress, I really would prefer if they kept her character, Lois Lane, at a minimum in this movie or even the JL movies (keep her out if possible). I am not holding my breath for an all out romance between Superman and Wonder Woman, but I would like more interaction between the different DC superheroes, and not another re-telling of the Lois and Clark relationship (even in small amounts, as those small amounts can take scenes away from the other heroes that I love). But that's just my opinion, others may disagree.

    3. Did you have interaction with a particular DC superhero in mind in any future films? Or just all of them in general?

    4. Just all of them, in general. I am excited to see the JL movies because I would love to see how Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Green Lantern, the Flash, etc. will interact/work together as a team (similar to the Avengers). Can't help it as I loved watching The Superfriends cartoons as a kid and also the newer JL cartoons on TV. For the JL movies, I really don't see the point of Lois Lane's character, unless it's just for a very small role. (If she's included, would the love interests of the other heroes be included as well?)

    5. Good question. Interesting thoughts. A lot may be up in the air at this point (literally and figuratively!) unless the scripts are already written, so I guess we'll find out in time...

  4. I like what Amy said about "if there's two women people think catfight...which is a MALE FANTASY not reality". I agree with that! Women can be friends and have good sismance (like a female bromance). While I'm open to some suggestive flirting and maybe some doubts, insecurities Clois may face might add some drama. But I hope they don't make Wonder Woman and Superman a couple. And if they do then make Lois and Batman, too, for a while (dunno if this is in the comics). Because if people can use the "but superman and Wonder Woman are Kryptonians, therefore more compatible" well lois and Bruce Wayne are human, therefore more compatible.

    1. Hey, nothing wrong with a little drama. These films don't have to be ALL about fighting villains. Guess we'll see.

    2. Is there proof that WW is Kryptonian? I heard about the backstory for her in this film but only rumors.

  5. I read that the casting for a young Ben Affleck was for another movie entirely...."The Accountant". It seems there was some confusion and somehow it got added "..for a young Bruce Wayne". However, it seems that is not true...??

    Regardless, I would think Henry is done with his part of filming in BvsS because he has cut his hair into more of a military cut. (Can I say how excited I would be to see Henry in a military uniform?! :-)

    1. Jen...the casting is A Mystery to me too. I haven't A Clue. It's sometimes painful to consider the possibilities. Guess time will tell...Merry Christmas to you, everyone and HCN <3
