Warner Bros. announces Injustice: Gods Among Us, a new DC fighting game from NetherRealm

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have just unveiled Injustice: Gods Among Us, which is a superhero fighting game set in the DC Universe. Based on the debut trailer above, it appears as though something has turned the Earth's greatest heroes into the Earth's deadliest villains, who are now pitted against each other in mortal combat.

Spotted characters include Batman, Superman, the Flash, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn (!!), Lex Luthor and Solomon Grundy, all of whom seem capable of delivering incredible amounts of damage to one another. Injustice: Gods Among Us will launch for on the PS3, 360 and Wii U sometime in 2013.

Update: Injustice's character roster is split into two categories: "Power" characters like Superman and Wonder Woman, and "Gadget" characters like the Batman and (presumably) Harley Quinn. Depending on a character's class, they'll be able to interact with the environment in different ways. Batman may be able to slam Wonder Woman's head into a parked car, for instance, while Wonder Woman is able to slam a parked car into Batman's head.

Environmental hazards are set to play a major role in the game, adding a bonus level of strategy to each character match-up, according to this video interview with NetherRealm's Ed Boon: "You're really going to want to care where you are, in which background, with which character."

Additionally, the debut trailer clearly shows the Flash narrowly avoiding a massive icicle, which may be a strong indicator of the presence of either Captain Cold or Mr. Freeze. Injustice will have "at least as many" fighters as Mortal Kombat, according to Gamespot.

The New “Ninja Turtles” Movie Shut Down by Paramount, Release Date Moved to 2014

Probably because of karmic reparations for angering fans, pre-production on the new live-action
Mutant Ninja Turtles movie has been shut down by Paramount, which has also pushed the planned December 2013 release date back to May 2014. Not surprisingly, the issue is said to be with the script — a script for a TMNT reboot that has abandoned the original story so much that it’s basically another movie that is just borrowing the TMNT name because no one could think of anything better. I’ll pretend to be upset about this right after I stop laughing.
At least production hadn’t started yet. Ninja Turtles, which is being produced by Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes and directed by Jonathan Liebesman, was still in pre-production in Vancouver, so it was still fairly early in the game for this controversial movie. Some might think that “controversial” is a strong word to describe a TMNT movie — unless you’re a fan of the actual TMNT. As some of you might remember, fans (including me) were pretty excited about a new TMNT movie. And then we heard Michael Bay was involved with it. And then we heard he was changing the Earthly creatures to aliens, which is effing ridiculous. And then Michael Bay told us all to “chill out,” and then we told him to do something to himself that I won’t repeat here.
However, we realize that the ooze that mutates our reptilian heroes does come from outer space, so maybe we’ve just been misunderstanding each other. But it’s still Michael Bay, and there’s still reason to be nervous.
Exhibit A: The issue of the script. The script with the supposed problems is being written by Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec, and — shockingly, for me, anyway — TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman. (If you’re wondering if the other co-creator Peter Laird is not involved because of the changes to his story, then you’d actually be incorrect. The above order to “chill out” from Bay? Laird highly recommends it.) No cast had been announced, though it was revealed that the Turtles themselves (or rather, the aliens) might be shot using motion capture; Liebesman said in an interview with Collider that he really liked how the reboot of The Rise of Planet of the Apes was made. So, let me be the first to nominate Andy Serkis for the role of Splinter if this turns out to be better than we think it is. I don’t want Serkis to be in a crappy movie, but I would trust his talents for giving life to non-human characters in this “sensitive” of a situation.
Schadenfreude towards Michael Bay aside, Paramount is having some trouble making movies lately. In addition to Ninja Turtles, they also ordered an 11th hour rewrite and seven weeks of reshoots for World War Z as recently as last week. That was not too long after they suddenly yanked G.I. Joe: Retaliation from its planned June 29 release, citing a “3D conversion,” which is code for “our movie sucks and we’re desperately going to try to fix it.” So Paramount is apparently becoming the most reliable source of fits and starts rather than awesome movies, and that’s kind of sad.
As far as Ninja Turtles goes, I’m going to hold out hope that any work on this script leads to something we fans can really get behind.

The Expendables 2 Poster Explodes Into A Fireball

There may be a lot of action films on their way this summer, but it's unlikely any of them will hold a candle to The Expendables 2, which in all its advertising so far has promised nothing short of the most explosions, punches, quips and aging action stars you've ever seen in a single movie. They know what sells-- tough dudes + balls of fire-- and that's very much on display in the new poster for the film, which has debuted at Yahoo! below.
If you remember the teaser character posters-- including the one we exclusively premiered, they were all about looking austere and black and white. For the big group shot, though, they've gone for the full-on bright fireball, not unlike how the first Dark Knight Rises poster was stark and colorless, and the final one is bursting with flames. Clearly the big new thing this summer is starting out colorless, but eventually picking up your flamethrower and lighting things up.

Other than that, I now wonder if you can tell how big their parts are based on where the actors are positioned on the poster-- if that's true, Schwarzenegger will have a much bigger time, and Liam Hemsworth will barely be in it.

Ryan Reynolds To Take Over As Batman After The Dark Knight Rises

green lantern ryan reynolds 544x360 Ryan Reynolds To Take Over As Batman After The Dark Knight Rises

Christopher Nolan has always said that The Dark Knight Rises would be the last film in his Batman trilogy, but that doesn’t mean that Warner Bros. wants to stop producing adventures for the caped crusader. The franchise is a surefire box office hit and it wouldn’t make sense for the studio to just drop it after The Dark Knight Rises. They already lost Harry Potter and I’m sure that they’re not eager to lose another huge franchise.
Today, the studio announced that they plan on giving Batman a reboot once Christopher Nolan steps away from the franchise. Being a reboot, none of the original cast will be returning which means that the studio needs to find a new actor to play the caped crusader. Following in the footsteps of Christian Bale is a daunting task for just about anyone but Warner Bros. seems to think that Ryan Reynolds is the man for the job.
Yes, you read that right. Once Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale depart from the Batman universe, Warner Bros. will reboot it with Ryan Reynolds in the lead role. The studio recently worked with him on Green Lantern and though the film flopped, it wasn’t Reynolds’ fault. He showed us that he could craft an effective superhero and Warner Bros. obviously enjoyed his performance. Much of the film’s faults stemmed from the writing and directing, not from Reynolds’ performance.
“We’ve begged Chris [Nolan] to stay on board but he refuses. He feels that he can’t do anything more with the series after this third film. We don’t want to let Batman die though, we know there are tons of fans out there that will want more and that’s why we’re looking into a reboot,” says Barry Meyer, CEO of Warner Bros.
“We loved the work that Ryan did for us on Green Lantern and we feel that he’s the right man to lead the Batman franchise. He’s an extremely talented individual and we hope that fans will embrace him as the new Batman,” continued Meyer.
As for directors, nothing has been announced as of yet but apparently, the studio wants Duncan Jones. Jones, the director of Source Code, was rumored for both The Wolverine and Man Of Steel at one point so it’s clear that studios feel that he can handle big franchises. This is by no means confirmed though but it is what our source close to the studio has told us.
“Duncan impressed a lot of people with his work on Source Code and Moon, he’s very in demand right now and Warner Bros. is hoping to have him take over the Batman franchise,” says a source close to the studio.
So there you have it, Duncan Jones and Ryan Reynolds taking on Batman, what do you think?
I honestly enjoyed Reynolds’ work in Green Lantern and while I am surprised that Warner Bros. has chosen him to lead the franchise, I’m not upset with the choice. I think he has a lot of potential but he hasn’t reached it yet. He still hasn’t had that one huge role that will skyrocket him onto the A-list.  With his recent casting in the Batman reboot, this could be his moment. I feel like he’s been on the cusp of greatness for a long time now and with this role, he’ll be able to solidify his place on the A-list.
That being said, the studio had high hopes for Green Lantern and the film ended up flopping hard. Does that mean there’s a risk of the Batman reboot flopping too if Reynolds is leading it? I don’t think so, like I said above, Green Lantern‘s problems were with its script and direction, I don’t think you can fault Reynolds at all for the movie’s poor reception and box office take.
As for Duncan Jones, I’m sold. I love both Source Code and Moon and I think he’ll bring a very interesting vision to the Batman series. He’ll give us something very different than Nolan did but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I think both him and Reynolds will infuse a new energy into the series and give us an exciting final product.
This is a lot to take in and fanboys will surely be split right down the middle on this decision but as you can tell, I’m on board. I love what Nolan and Bale did with Batman but I’m ready for a fresh new take on the iconic superhero.
What about you? Are you on board with Reynolds and Jones leading the Batman reboot?

First Poster For Dredd Arrives Online

So much is being made of The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises, but there's still one late yea-in-the-year comic book movie that we shouldn't forget about: Dredd. Directed by Pete Travis and starring the characters created by Carlos Ezquerra and John Wagner, the movie isn't getting a big summer release like its brethren, but instead is set to come out in September with Karl Urban as the titular judge, jury and executioner. Because of its later release we haven't gotten to see much from the film other than the occasional still, but today brings the biggest piece of marketing material yet.

Lionsgate has sent JoBlo the first official poster for Dredd. Stark and minimalist, it's actually a pretty cool poster that does a good job teasing the movie and the suit. Check out the poster below and head over to the source to also check out two new stills.
The even better news? When posters are released it typically means that the first trailer isn't far off. Stay tuned here on Cinema Blend in the coming days/week and we'll have it for you.

Dredd is set in a violent future where laws have begun to crumble and it becomes the responsibility of the police to prevent and punish crime. The story follows one particular police officer, Judge Dredd, teams up with a young agent named Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) to hunt down a dangerous, reality-bending drug called SLO-MO. Lena Headey stars as the villain, Madeline 'Ma-Ma' Madrigal. The script was written by Alex Garland of 28 Days Later and Sunshine fame and the movie will be released on September 21st.

Iron Patriot Armor To Appear In Iron Man 3, But Who Will Be Wearing It?

SUPER UPDATE: The mystery has already been solved! The Superficial has received an image from the Iron Man 3 set that shows James Badge Dale in costume as Iron Patriot. It was previously reported that Dale would be playing Eric Savin in the movie, a character who becomes Coldblood in the comics, but it seems that things have changed this time around. To see what Dale looks like in the armor, check out the image at the bottom of this post.

Here is the original post, untouched:

You've probably noticed this by now, but there isn't just one kind of Iron Man suit. In fact, since 2008 the armor has appeared in three movies and there have been a grand total of eight suits: Mark I through VII and War Machine. No film with Iron Man in it has featured less than two different types of armor, and now SuperHeroHype has confirmed that yet another version will be appearing in Iron Man 3. The big question is, who will be wearing it?

The site is reporting that the second sequel to Iron Man, which is being directed by Shane Black, will feature the Iron Patriot, a red, white and blue tinged suit that first appeared in 2009's "Dark Avengers." Here's the twist though: Tony Stark wasn't the guy wearing the suit. In fact, it was Norman Osborne of Spider-Man fame, who, in the story, is actually treated as an American hero. Osborne took the technology from Stark Industries and gave it the patriotic look as a tribute to the recently-deceased Captain America. Iron Man 3 is currently filming down in North Carolina and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale and Jon Favreau.

Obviously Osborne won't be appearing in the movie, as Sony Pictures owns the rights to the character and Iron Man 3 is a Marvel Studios film, so that means that either someone else will be sporting the Iron Patriot armor or its just an idea that Tony Stark has for his newest design. Given that the project is already chock full of villains, I'm really hoping for the latter.

Below you will find a full-size picture of what the Iron Patriot armor looks like:

UPDATE: And here's James Badge Dale as Iron Patriot!

New Iron Man 3 Set Photos Hint At A Great Evil

Iron Man 3 has not been in production for a long time, but already photos that have been leaked from the set have given us an eye into just what writer/director Shane Black has in store for us. In late May a photographer snapped a photo of Iron Patriot on set (click here to see who is wearing the armor), and now it's been revealed that another one of the evil corporations from the comics has found its way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

iO9 holds the new images, which show that Advanced Idea Mechanics, also known as AIM. Will play a role in the movie. While this would be meaningless to anyone not familiar with the comics, AIM is best known as the company that experimented on one of its technicians, George Tarleton, and turned him into MODOK (which stands for Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing). Below you will find the set photos as well as an image of MODOK.

Those who keep up with news about the Marvel movies may note that this isn't the first time that MODOK has been brought up in connection with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After the release of Captain America: The First Avenger last summer, the writers said in an interview that they would love to make the floating giant head you see above be the villain in Captain America 2 (and have Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage play him). It's highly unlikely that MODOK will be playing a role in either Iron Man 3 or Captain America 2, but it will be interesting to figure out why Shane Black is using AIM. Perhaps that will be the company that created the Extremis nanovirus? Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau and James Badge Dale. The sequel will arrive in theaters on May 3, 2013 and you can read more about it in our Blend Film Database.

Justice League Movie Gets New Life At Warner Bros.

Come on, you didn't think DC was going to sit back and let Marvel steal all the superhero movie attention, did you? Sure, The Avengers has swiftly become the biggest superhero movie of all time, but DC Comics has their own equivalent of their super powered team in the Justice League, and now a movie featuring all those characters has found a new lease on life. Variety reports that Warner Bros. has brought on Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall to turn in a new Justice League movie script-- and Beall has actually been on the job since last year, though he's yet to turn in a script.

You may remember that a Justice League movie has been in the works for, like forever-- we ran a story with the ominous headline "Justice League Movie Coming" in February of 2007, back when Warner Bros. was still talking about getting a Batman vs. Superman movie going. The closest the project came to reality was back in 2008, when George Miller was planning to direct it with Armie Hammer as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Adam Brody as the Flash, Common as the Green Lantern, and other casting choices that seem impossible to believe now. The movie fell apart, like so many things do, thanks to budget issues, and probably also the ongoing success of Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise that made it seem irrelevant. But with Nolan's Batman wrapping up, Zack Snyder's forthcoming Superman: Man of Steel might offer a new entry into the kind of omnibus film Marvel started building to with Iron Man.

Crazy as it seems now, The Avengers was a gamble, and DC's Justice League would be a big one too, especially with the recent failure of The Green Lantern having us wonder if the DC stable is strong enough to bring in Avengers-level interest. DC diehards, feel free to contradict me, and suggest your own ideas of how DC will make a Justice League movie possible in the near feature. We knew it was inevitable, but now it looks like we might see it sometime before the decade is out.
