Artwork by Anas Riasat. To date, the tentatively titled ‘Batman vs. Superman’ stars Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto and Holly Hunter.

Toby Kebbell has joined Nicholas Hoult in the Iraq war drama ‘Sand Castle,’ which is scheduled to start filming in October in South Africa and Italy. Iraq war veteran Chris Roessner’s Black List script is based on real events experienced by a platoon sent to repair an aqueduct in the dangerous and remote village of Baqubah, Iraq. Mark Gordon (Source Code, Saving Private Ryan) is producing the feature from commercials and shorts director Seb Edwards, who is set to make his feature debut.
In ‘Sand Castle,’ Nicholas Hoult is set to play a young machine gunner while Toby Kebbell has been pegged to play the role of Sgt. Baker, the Platoon leader who must keep his men sane in the face of mounting casualties. Two of my favorite young actors working today, Kebbell will next be seen in ‘Dawn of The Planet of the Apes,’ ‘Buddha’s Little Finger,’ Duncan Jones’ ‘Warcraft’ and as doctor Doom in ‘The Fantastic Four’ reboot. Hoult will next be seen in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ ‘Dark Places,’ ‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ ‘Autobahn,’ ‘Kill Your friends’ and ‘Equals.’
Out and about on the promotional rounds for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ (look out for my own interviews for the film this coming week), Michael Fassbender confirmed to the fine folks over at Collider that a ‘Prometheus 2′ is happening. Asked if he was looking forward to working with Ridley Scott on the sequel, Fassbender replied, “For sure. I love Ridley. He’s a master filmmaker,” at which point James McAvoy, who was also part of the interview, turned to Oscar nominated ’12 Years a Slave’ actor and asked, “Are you doing a sequel?” Fassbender turned to his X-Men co-star and replied, “Yeah, but when I don’t know.” Check out the exchange after the jump.
With the red carpet premiere for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ set to kick off tonight from 7pm ET (4pm PT/12am GMT) at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City, 20th Century Fox has made available the following video link below to stream the event as it unfolds. Acting as a sequel to both ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ and ‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ includes cast members from both: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, and Daniel Cudmore return from ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ while James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Lucas Till return from ‘X-Men: First Class.’
From Warner Bros Pictures comes this first clip from Lana and Andy Wachowski’s ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ showcasing Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. Co-starring the likes of Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy and Tim Pigott-Smith, the film opens on July 18th.
From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, ‘Jupiter Ascending’ tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along — her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
