Next up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Eighteen months after the battle between Superman and General Zod in Metropolis, Superman has become a controversial figure. Billionaire Bruce Wayne, who has operated in Gotham City as the vigilante Batman for two decades, sees Superman as a potential threat to humanity. After learning of Batman's form of justice, Clark Kent seeks to expose Batman via Daily Planet articles.

Retro Movie Review: Man Of Steel

This week is DC Universe week over here at Sandwichjohnfilms. In preparation for Justice League hitting theaters this week Zach is going to be reviewing some of the individual Justice League member's films that have lead up to this. First up is Man of Steel. Man of Steel is a 2013 superhero film featuring the DC Comics character Superman. It is a British-American venture produced by Legendary Pictures, DC Entertainment, Syncopy Inc., and Cruel and Unusual Films, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. It is the first installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). The film is directed by Zack Snyder, written by David S. Goyer, and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni , and Russell Crowe.

Tom Hiddleston Wanted For The Sandman

After years of wallowing in believed-unfilmable development hell, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman appears to be creeping closer to actually hitting screens in the hands of David S. Goyer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and The Fades’ Jack Thorne. But just who should play the iconic central figure, Morpheus? According to Gaiman, Tom Hiddleston could be a good shout. While the author – who is also a producer on the film – seriously considered Benedict “ubiquitous” Cumberbatch, the actor is a little busy conquering every genre role under the sun, including Marvel’s Doctor Strange. "It's a funny thing with Morpheus, says Gaiman. “Again, it's that thing where you look around and think, 'Yes this person would be a fantastic person', and then time passes. "There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine. I think the first time I saw Benedict was as Sherlock Holmes, I thought, 'wow, that's incredibly Morpheus'

Superman Origin Story "Krypton" Coming To Syfy

Look, up in the sky! It's another comic book show. Syfy is turning to David S. Goyer — the man behind The Man of Steel — to develop Superman origin story Krypton , The Hollywood Reporter has learned. From Warner Horizon Television and DC Comics, Krypton takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This drama, which is in development, follows the Man of Steel's grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known. Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, FlashForward) will pen the script and exec produce alongside Goyer. The story was conceived by both Goyer and Goldberg. The drama is in the same vein as Fox's DC Comics take Gotham , which tells the origin story of Jim Gordon ( Ben McKenzie ) and features a pre-teen Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) before he became Batman. Krypton also becomes the latest DC Comics-insp

TV Review: Constantine “Rise Of Caliban”

TV Review: Constantine “Rise of Caliban” By: Brandon Wolfe The recent announcement that NBC has declined to order additional episodes of ‘ Constantine ’ beyond its initial 13-episode order, rendering the series unofficially canceled, is starting to sting a bit. ‘ Constantine ’ continues to gather steam. What felt at first like a blandly flavored supernatural time-waster is now inching its way toward becoming something worthwhile. Pity it’s a dead show airing. After an evocative opener where we are shown the aftermath of a bloodbath where the only survivor appears to be a young girl, we meet up with Constantine in bed with a young woman and being rushed out the window half-dressed when her boyfriend comes home unexpectedly. It’s a nice character building moment for our hero, illuminating the haphazard lifestyle he gravitates toward. From there, he and Chas head off to Birmingham to look into the massacre. A bit of magical forensics work tells Constantine that the little girl

TV Review: Constantine “Danse Vaudou”

TV Review: Constantine “Danse Vaudou” By: Brandon Wolfe “ Danse Vaudou ” is perhaps the best episode of ‘ Constantine ’ aired thus far. It’s the first entry where all elements come together into a largely satisfying whole. The story it tells is appropriately spooky and involving and the supporting cast finally begins to congeal a bit. It’s the first sign that the visible growing pains this show has been suffering through thus far might be starting to subside. We’re in New Orleans this week as we follow drunken cop Jim Corrigan out of a bar and into an alley to relieve himself. There he bears witness to a woman being slashed to death by another woman wearing a surgical mask over the lower half of her face. When Corrigan attempts to fire at the assailant, the bullets have no effect. Meanwhile, in an urban legend come to life, a man picks up a teenage hitchhiker out on a dark backroad not far outside of town only to have the young man vanish from the passenger seat and appear i

TV Review: Constantine "A Feast of Friends"

TV Review: Constantine "A Feast of Friends" By: Brandon Wolfe Four episodes in, the question is starting to arise of whether ‘ Constantine ’ is still struggling through its wobbly first steps or if the largely rote series that seems to be emerging is simply what we’re gonna get. The series has some solid attributes, but its weaknesses are overpowering them. One can only hope the show will strengthen with time, but one can also only extend benefit of the doubt so far. A sweaty, squirrely man named Gary Lester is passing through customs at an airport in Atlanta and his sketchy demeanor pings airport security’s suspicions, hauling him into a backroom for inspection. When an antique container is found among Gary’s possessions, Gary implores the guard not to open it, which of course necessitates that the man open it immediately. Doing so releases a swarm of mystical beetles, which forces itself down the guard’s throat. Somehow, amid all this chaos, Gary escapes from th

TV Review: Constantine "The Devil’s Vinyl”

TV Review: Constantine "The Devil’s Vinyl” By: Brandon Wolfe ‘ Constantine ’ is still plugging right along. “ The Devil’s Vinyl ” is very much a case-of-the-week outing, but it allows the series to continue to color itself in. More so than last week’s episode, this entry provides a fair amount of detail on the world that John Constantine inhabits and the players that share that world with him. While the story at its core isn’t terribly vital, that which we are provided in the service of said story certainly is. We open with Zed tracking down Constantine’s lair, using the clues afforded to her in her sketched visions. After finishing some weird blood ritual that isn’t explained to us, Constantine is headed out the door to Chicago to investigate the odd circumstances surrounded the apparent death by suicide of a music producer that John befriended in his pre-demon days when he was embarking on a singing career. Zed, whom Constantine and his associate Chas still don’t entirel

TV Review: #Constantine “The Darkness Beneath”

TV Review: Constantine “The Darkness Beneath” By: Brandon Wolfe ‘ Constantine’ is still in the process of putting itself together. Much of the legwork done in the pilot episode was all for naught as the show opted to change its course after that first outing was shot. As such, all of the material focusing on the character of Liv Aberdeen, the young woman initially being groomed to become John Constantine’s companion, was chucked out the window. This leaves Episode 2, “The Darkness Beneath,” with the task of setting Constantine up with a new partner, which it does in the form of Zed (Angelica Celaya), a young woman with some kind of psychic connection to Constantine, manifesting itself in visions that she sketches on paper. Zed meets Constantine when the latter comes to a mining town in western Pennsylvania to investigate a disturbance where a miner was immolated in his shower (Constantine’s other partner, the seemingly immortal Chas, stays behind due to an outstanding warrant f

TV Review: Constantine “Non Est Asylum”

TV Review: Constantine“Non Est Asylum” By: Brandon Wolfe John Constantine , the “exorcist, demonologist and master of the dark arts” protagonist of DC’s ‘ Hellblazer ’ comic series, has made an appearance once before in the realm of live-action, portrayed by, of all people, Keanu Reeves in a 2005 film. Constantine , in the comics, is blonde and exceedingly British. Keanu Reeves is not those things. And though that film and Reeves’ performance are stronger than their reputations would suggest, such stark changes imposed on the character right out of the gate didn’t set him up to succeed with his fanbase. NBC’s ‘ Constantine ’ is, to its credit and forgive the dumb pun, hellbent on setting the character straight. Portrayed by Matt Ryan, the character is blonde and British as all get out, he maintains his trademark rumpled, trenchcoated look and possesses the proper surly demeanor. All that’s missing, despite his constant tinkering with a Zippo, is the character’s penchant for ch

#CONSTANTINE Clips From Season Premiere

Joseph Gordon-Levitt To Produce Sandman For WB

A month or so ago came the news that Dark Knight screenwriter David S. Goyer was pitching a movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics to Warner Bros. With that story came the whisper of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's involvement somewhere in the project, although the details were unclear. This morning that fog has lifted: Gordon-Levitt, it's revealed, is certainly attached as producer, and may also direct and star as the dream lord Morpheus: the Sandman of the title. Gordon-Levitt confirmed the news on his Twitter feed, initially with a vague announcement saying that he was "honoured to be working with David Goyer, Warner Bros, and Neil Gaiman on Sandman". When an excitable internet leapt to immediate conclusions about what that might mean, however, he clarified that the starring and directing bit "remains to be seen"... With a critically successful recent directorial debut in Don Jon, and a proven track record as a star at Warners via Inception

COD Black OPS: Call Of The Dead Escalation Expansion Pack Level

Director George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead) knows a thing or two about zombies. So it’s no surprise that Activision Publishing enlisted the horror director to appear as himself in the new Call of the Dead zombie level that gamers can download on Xbox Live starting May 3 . Actors Robert Englund (Nightmare on Elm Street), Sarah Michelle Gellar (The Grudge), Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead) and Danny Trejo (Machete) have joined Romero in the new undead level, which is part of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation expansion pack . The zombie storyline was inspired by Romero, according to Mark Lamia, studio head of Treyarch. He said his Santa Monica-based team set out to create an exciting new zombie experience for fans of the genre that takes the gameplay to an “insane new level.” The story focuses on a shipwrecked crew of fearless explorers who are hopelessly stranded in a remote abandoned Siberian outpost. Their dream of discovering the true origins of the mysteri

The Dark Knight Rises, Who Is The Villain?

Let's start with the news about whom Batman will be facing as a villain in The Dark Knight Rises  is a Rumor nothing has been confirmed. Rumor . Truth as she herself confirmed, Anne Hathaway will be playing Selina Kyle/Catwoman in the movie. I can’t tell you what role she has in the beginning, but by the end of the story Catwoman isn’t a villain but rather an ally of Batman. And who are they teaming up to take out? Now onto the Rumors: badassdigest talked to a good source near the Batcamp and have come away with information about The Dark Knight Rises that confirms lots of speculation from recent months. This is, technically, all spoilers. I feel pretty confident that this info is good, but know that Christopher Nolan has gotten very, very skilled at manipulating us nerds and isn’t above throwing out some misinformation from time to time. Here goes nothing: The League of Shadows . Headed by Talia Al’Ghul . With Bane ( Tom Hardy ), who is her muscle/possible love
