"Marvel & DC Aren't Competing" Henry's Interview With 'Schon'



It's a busy start to the weekend, with word that Henry has an official Weibo account, and this new interview from the Huawei P9 promo.

Henry spoke to Schon magazine in London, opening up about being a tech geek, his experience working with Scarlett Johansson, and his thoughts on the Marvel-DC "rivalry:"


The one thing I have always stood by is that the two universes, Marvel and DC, aren’t competing. They are very different universes and if a Marvel movie does well, I’m very, very happy. I love when they do well. I love to go watch their movies. If their movie’s doing well, that means people want to see more in the way of superhero stories. I love the stories about superheroes and I want to keep on seeing them on the big screen.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone.

Henry Thanks Chinese Fans On Official Weibo Account


We have just found out that Henry has created an official Weibo account. He made his first post while in Shanghai for the P9 event there a few weeks ago. Henry shared this great photo, along with a message for his Chinese fans:

Hello Weibo! Sending my first post from Shanghai. Thank you to all the fans in China for your incredible support. You have made this a trip to remember.

This is the link for you to follow him! (account is verified). If you're not in China, the Weibo app makes it a little easier for you to sign up. Also, if you click on the letter icon at the top of your page, Google will translate the basic info. Not really ideal, but it helps.  

Thanks to @HCavillArg, @Primula87_tmblr for the heads up.

National Superhero Day: Fan Appreciation Post


Today is National Superhero Day, and we don't have to tell you who we think is the best one (and Henry's fans and USA Today readers agree!).

Henry has shown nothing but respect and love for the character he represents, and it shows in the way he treats his fans. Charan wanted to share with you his experience, after meeting Henry at the London premiere of Batman v Superman last month. He drew this beautiful portrait for Henry to sign, and he wasn't disappointed, telling us about his experience when Henry saw the drawing..


"It was just amazing!!! -- Yes he loved it, but he is such a humble guy and he loves his fans!"


"I actually made a copy of the drawing for him to keep, and he couldn't believe it."



Longer version


And that kindness and attention to his fans, is just one of the many reasons that make Henry a great Superman.

 Happy National Superhero Day, Supes!


Thank you so much for sharing your pics, video, and details Charan.

Bearded Supes In Justice League?.. Not So Fast!

Pic: Henry's FB







Okay, so it's pretty obvious Henry has been working incredibly hard to outdo what he called his "minimum goal," as he prepares for Justice League filming. But we're not quite ready to get too excited about the beard, and this is why.


That pic was taken in April of 2014, just before Henry was about to start filming Batman v Superman. He has just shaved off a beard that he'd been growing since he arrived in Detroit at the beginning of 2014.

Back then we totally hyped up Henry with his "Super beard."

Now we're a little more cautious about assuming the same thing, despite the fact that the storyline certainly seems to apply a lot more this time around (via):

It's most likely that when we see Superman come back from the dead, he'll be sporting the beard, due to him being in a coffin all this time.


That's apparently because Superman is not really dead (hair keeps growing). You can read more on that, and the Superman black suit that also keeps coming up in convos HERE and HERE. Thanks for the tips on the comments section you guys.

Beard or no beard, we can't wait to bring you the latest Justice League news as it happens.

Aquaman is ready as well!

'Batman v Superman' Box Office, 'Justice League' Update


Thaaat's right. Supes leaving his mark at the box office, with Batman v Superman still going strong in its fifth week in theaters. Scott Mendelson at Forbes has the highlights:

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earned another $8.3 million overseas from 66 markets. Like in America, it had a slightly stronger hold (-47%) in its fifth weekend than it has in past frames. That brings the DC Comics sequel’s overseas cume to $532.1m as it winds down. The Ben Affleck/Henry Cavill/Gal Gadot blockbuster has earned $851.601m worldwide (..) that’s the seventh-biggest superhero movie ever behind Spider-Man 3, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Iron Man 3, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and The Avengers. Regarding Warner Bros. releases, it’s the tenth-biggest WB movie ever worldwide.

While we wait for director Zack Snyder's extended cut to be released, we have a quick update on Justice League. It comes courtesy of J.K. Simmons, who will play Commissioner Gordon in the film. In an interview with DP/30 (via), Simmons says he won't start filming until June and talks briefly about his role. WATCH (at about 3:06).


Collider also talked to Simmons about Justice League. Read the rest on their site

It’s been announced that you’re going to be playing Commissioner Gordon in the DC cinematic universe. When you play a character like that, do you feel the need to read the comics and watch whatever previous versions of the character are out there, or do you personally prefer to stay away from all of that and find the character yourself?

SIMMONS: Well, to read the comics, yes, absolutely. I’m still a couple of months out from doing that and I have two other films before then, so I haven’t gotten started on that. Obviously, a lot of really wonderful actors have played that character previously, and most of them I saw at the time the movies came out, never imagining that I would be doing the same thing. So, I can’t say that I don’t have some impression of that character in my head that’s based on what I saw, but I’m not planning on going back and watching any of the other films. I’m just planning on learning as much as I can about him through the comics and getting my feet wet in the first movie, and then hopefully continuing on from there. I take this from my days doing theater. If I was doing a musical, I would never listen to the cast album because I wanted to do my version of something. I’m sure there will be differences and similarities with what Gary Oldman or Pat Hingle have done before, but I’m just going to try to do my take on it and be as informed as I can about the rich history of the Batman universe, going into it.

Having previously played a character in a comic book movie, with J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man films, and having had people love your work as that character, does it place any added pressure on you to take on another iconic comic book character?

SIMMONS: There are easy comparisons to make. I wasn’t a big comic book reading kid, so I did a fair amount of reading when I was playing Jameson, who was very much the comic relief in those movies. Even in the comics, he was a blowhard who was all bark and very rarely bite. My understanding, from what I’ve learned so far about Commissioner Gordon, is that he’s the older guy with the mustache who relates with our hero in a certain way. Other than that, it’s a vastly different character and much more of a stronger, impactful character in the DC universe.

There is also an update from the Kent farm outside of Chicago, where it looks like things are once again getting prepped for filming later this year.


Jeff Frost shared this pic with the Superman Homepage, adding that "boards have been removed from the windows, and security guards are patrolling the location."

Can't wait to see how the Kent farm and Superman's mom play a role this time around, given how Batman v Superman ended. We know Supes will definitely be back, but what about Clark?..

Filming updates as we get them!

Willem Dafoe Joins Justice League, J.K. Simmons On Gordon


Big casting news today, as The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Willem Dafoe will join Henry in Justice League:

Dafoe, who starred as the villainous Marvel character Green Goblin in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies, is playing a good guy in a role that will see him appear in both parts of the JL movies. Details of his character, however, are being kept under lock and key.


UPDATE: We're leaving it to the CB experts to try and guess who Dafoe may be playing. They've come up with some interesting choices, some of which you mentioned on our Instagram post. Smart people.





The announcement comes just a few weeks after J.K. Simmons was added to the cast, as Gotham City's Police Commissioner Gordon. Simmons recently talked to Collider about preparing for the role:

Obviously, a lot of really wonderful actors have played that character previously, and most of them I saw at the time the movies came out, never imagining that I would be doing the same thing. So, I can’t say that I don’t have some impression of that character in my head that’s based on what I saw, but I’m not planning on going back and watching any of the other films. I’m just planning on learning as much as I can about him through the comics and getting my feet wet in the first movie, and then hopefully continuing on from there.

Over the weekend in China, Henry mentioned that everything "is very top secret" about Justice League, as he trains to return to his role as Superman with filming reportedly underway in London. Warner Bros. has yet to issue an official press release, but we're staying on top of the latest developments for you.
