It's not like we didn't know it was coming, but Jesse Eisenberg has now confirmed Lex Luthor is appearing in Justice League. He made the announcement at MCM Comic-Con in London: 

"I'm kind of in wait. They just started filming Justice League, so I'm kind of like waiting for my crack at it. I don't know what I'm allowed to say, because I feel like there's probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off (..) I love it, and I love everybody who's in it. You know, it's a really talented group of people." 

He went on to talk about what he tried to accomplish when playing the iconic character. Watch below.


We're less than two months away from San Diego's Comic-Con, and you know we're likely getting a Justice League surprise or two. We'll be there to bring you all the excitement from Hall H. For sure Warner Bros. will be bringing Wonder Woman, and fans will also be able to buy this awesome Mattel collectible revealed by USA Today.


At $80, the Amazon Princess is not cheap, but if you're a fan this is definitely one kick ass doll to own.


Cliché magazine had a chance to interview Sammi Rotibi. He played General Amajagh in Batman v Superman, holding Lois hostage and facing the consequences when Supes arrived to rescue her..

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is out now. Can you tell us a little about your role as General Amajagh?

My character is very pivotal in the movie. [If you have not seen it yet] I can tell you it’s an AMAZING ride. Batman going up against Superman! I promise you they hold no punches. Zack Snyder (Director) really went all out for this one. When it’s over, you’re gonna wanna see more! You’re gonna go back and see it again. Real talk!

What are some of your favorite experiences or take-aways from working on this film?


Getting to work with a great director like Zack Snyder, who makes your job easy because he puts you into this world and you just follow. The actors I also worked with, the big sets—it was an awesome crew. Just the experience of it all was massive! I feel really blessed to be a part of it.

Some of the props used in that scene, are now on display as part of the new DC Universe: The Exhibit at the Warner Bros. studio in Burbank. Check them out!  


Finally, we have a huge request for you guys and you've always come through for Henry. He's now nominated as Choice SciFi Movie Actor at the Teen Choice Awards. The ceremony is watched by millions and it would be a proud moment for Supes to win. The vote is tight because Marvel fans are not letting up. So let's keep voting daily, spread the word, Henry deserves that surfboard and the honor.

You can either tweet your vote, making sure to include the hashtags above, or vote directly on their site.

Voting closes Thursday!

Swiss online magazine HH Journal, has published an interview they did with Henry during the Batman v Superman promotion a few months ago. He talks to them about Superman, pizza breaks, and those tabloid rumors that surfaced during production:

"No, Ben Affleck, who plays Batman, and I didn’t compare biceps or see who could do the most sit-ups!"

Henry goes on to mention the "watch research," he did for his role as Napoleon Solo in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., his love for sports cars and why it's unlikely you'll see him driving one when he's home, and much more!

Superman Training At Roger Gracie's London Academy



Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion Roger Gracie, has just shared these pics from his London Academy.

We're not sure if they are from today, but that's definitely Superman in training with his trainer, Mike Blevins by his side.

Justice League!


 @kywangracie: "Superman will choke Batman next time. @henrycavill @bbboj @rogergracie"


It remains to be seen how Henry applies the skills he learns from Gracie on the big screen, and why he needs them in the first place..


The Durrell Challenge: "You All Have Made A Big Difference"



It was a wonderful day of friendship, fitness, and fan support. Hundreds of people joined Henry at The Durrell Challenge and Fun Day that followed earlier this month in Jersey, with all fundraising going to help Durrell save endangered animals around the world. Henry spoke to us about what your support means to him and the charity, and he echoed those sentiments in an updated message on his JustGiving page where many donated and left him messages of support:  

I Just wanted to thank you all for your overwhelming generosity and at such late notice too! You have all made a big difference here in donating to Durrell. They are so incredibly grateful as well for all of your commitment to the cause! Thank you all so so much, you guys and gals are the best!!

Among the fans that helped make The Durrell Challenge a success, were the volunteers who got up bright and early to take their spots along the race route. The very lovely Nella was among them, and she later took these great pics of Henry as he met with fans, and conducted the raffle for his first car. You can see them all in HQ (almost 100 photos!) in the gallery below. Thank you so much for letting us share them with you guys. If you repost, please credit: itsacoffeeshop.tumblr.com.

Here's our video of Nella and a few other fans getting their photo taken with Henry at Durrell Wildlife


Look for our final wrap this weekend!
