You really can't tell a good Superman story without, at some point, introducing Lois Lane. She's crucial to Superman's character. More crucial even than either set of parents or villains like Lex Luthor. She humanises the character and allows him to have flaws and weaknesses and interesting feelings that are unrelated to Kryptonite.

Last year, it was revealed that Henry Cavill did his screen test for Superman in Christopher Reeve's legendary costume from the monumental 1978 film. Now, Zack Snyder has shared another picture from that screen test, one that he says convinced Warner Bros. that Cavill was the man for the red trunks.
As different as Justice League and Crisis on Earth-X are in shape and style, they're both trying to tell similar stories. It's just that Crisis tells that story much, much better. As dire as the DCEU may seem right now, not all hope is lost. Warner Bros.' film division just needs to pay attention to what their television arm is doing right.
The Man of Steel Superman costume is a perfectly fine rendition of Superman's classic look, if a little muted in colour. But somewhere in an alternate world Henry Cavill took to the silver screen in the classic Superman costume of the original comics, just like Christoper Reeve, and I bet it looked as fantastic as this image teases.
A sequel to Man of Steel has long been expected, but there hasn't been much news about it thus far. Last we heard, the DC film was in "active development", but that was eight months ago. Now we know that Warner Bros. has its eye on a certain comic book director to bring Superman back to the big screen.
Last week, the news came out that Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) would direct a Justice League Dark movie, with a script from Guillermo del Toro, who would be sticking around to produce. All of that sounds like great news, but there's just one issue: The looming presence of Warner Bros. over it all.
With the release of Suicide Squad, chapter three of the DC Extended Universe is now in the books. We now have another piece to the puzzle that started with Man of Steel, continued in Batman v Superman and will go on next year in Wonder Woman and Justice League. Here are the biggest changes that Suicide Squad has made to the larger story of the DC Extended Universe.
Despite being on television continuously from 1988 to 2010, Superman has only had two interpretations on the big screen in the past 40 years: Richard Donner's Silver Age-inspired fella who eradicates memories with a kiss, and Zack Snyder's Superman. The latter version is back this week, facing off against Batman -- and in an effort to get myself pumped for Batman v Superman, I've been mainlining Super-people stories like its my job. And I've come to one major conclusion: Immigration is the whole point of the Superman story. And if you don't keep that in mind, you don't get Superman.
Ben Affleck has just been cast as Batman in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel sequel (sorry, Daredevil 2 hold-outs), and the internet is flipping its collective desk over at the very idea of a quippy Dark Knight. If you're so smart, you fix it: who should have been cast?
Oh my God. This is incredible. Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel hits cinemas soon, and we can't wait to see it Down Under. We found ourselves wondering, however, what other films would look like if given the Snyder-treatment. Thankfully, we don't have to wonder: someone re-cut a new trailer The Matrix trilogy and it looks freaking amazing.
