Are Charles Roven and Zack Snyder Reading Your Comments? 0
In a recent interview with SFX Magazine, 'Man of Steel' producer, Charles Roven, mentioned that he's reading fan comments related to a potential Superman sequel. If this doesn't send chills down your spine, maybe the actual quote will:
"I think you can go anywhere beyond this film that the mind can take you, and certainly we’ve been reading online all of the various possibilities being laid out there by both fan sites and fans."
Roven doesn't say who "we" is, but WE can guess that he's talking about Zack Snyder. That means that Zack Snyder and Charles Roven want to know what you think about the direction of future films. Haven't commented yet? You might want to do that.
There were some other interesting bits in the SFX Magazine interview too. When asked about the upcoming 'Man of Steel' film, Roven confirmed that we can expect it to be as grounded as the previews make it seem.
"As he [Snyder] said, this is the most realistic film, even though it’s about a superhero, that he’s ever shot. His whole style, everything that we did, was designed to bring that to the fore."
You can expect less of a fantastical movie and more of a look into the actual life of Superman. This movie isn't going to be of the usual superhero sort with the fresh spin that Snyder is putting on it – and that’s going to be a great thing.
We're excited to see this film - and to see whether or not Roven and Snyder pick up any of our comments (or YOUR comments) and run with them the next time around! Got any fresh ideas? Make sure to let your voice be heard!
Carano Would Consider Wonder Woman 0
Wonder Woman is a symbol of strength. She has to be tough, independent, and must have those amazing Amazonia features. In short, Gina Carano would make an amazing Wonder Woman, and hers is the first name that tends to pop up when speaking of the right actress to play the Amazon goddess.
Rumors and speculations surrounding the part that Carano might play in an upcoming film have been circulating long before the actress caught wind of such things. Would she even consider stepping into a superhero suit to play Wonder Woman? ‘Collider Magazine’ asked Carano how she felt about playing the part of Wonder Woman, and here’s what she had to say:
“That’s a dream to put on a costume and be a whole other level of character…there’s always the possibility that some day I will be a comic book character that I’ll play and I’m not sure who that’s going to be. It would be fun and fascinating. We’ll just have to see where my career is going to go. There’s so much I want to do. I’m…putting myself out there and seeing what’s attractive to me.”
Carano hasn’t been cast as Wonder Woman in any film yet, but she’s clearly open to the idea. It seems as though she’s also ready to don a costume and let the world know that she can pull off the part of Wonder Woman (we have no doubt!). Right now, Carano is working on promoting ‘Fast and Furious 6,’ though we certainly haven’t seen the last of her yet.
We’d also like to point out that we are behind Carano’s taking on the role of Wonder Women 100% -- and we love the fact that Carano and Cavill are dating in the real world (check out our post here). It is also rumoured that Carano will make an appearance in ‘Man of Steel’ as (what else?) the Amazonian woman.
This MMA fighter turned serious actress was BORN to play the part of Wonder Woman! Don’t you agree?
Modern Lois Lane Is No Damsel In Distress! 1
Now that all the hype from 'Iron Man 3' and the new 'Star Trek' has worn off (slightly), we can turn our attention to future films. Next up is 'Man of Steel,' but rather than focus more on Cavill's character, let's discuss the modern role that Amy Adams will play.
Ever since Adams was first cast as Lois Lane, she's received a fair amount of criticism. Some felt that she wasn't a good fit for the sexy Lois Lane, and others feel that she's the perfect fit. No matter what side of the fence you're on, you can expect this year's Lois to be a completely different kind of woman -- a thoroughly modern one, in fact.
Right in line with current mantras like "Strong Is the New Skinny" and "Female Power," the newest Lois Lane isn't a damsel in distress by any stretch of the imagination. 'US Weekly' recently interviewed Adams to see what her role was all about - you may find yourself a tad bit surprised.
US Weekly tells us that the new Lois Lane "prefers business casual, is cell obsessed, and fights with her boss." Today's Lois Lane is social media savvy and comes with all the perks of being a modern day journalist (laptop, smartphone, and practical clothing included).
First look pics show Adams dressed in winter hats, pants, and baggy jackets. The days of Lois Lane in pencil skirts and heels are long gone, it seems. US weekly bills her as a "modern day business woman," and that certainly doesn't include any red lipstick or too-tight blazers.
Adams has entirely revamped the role of Lois Lane to fit today's woman, but some fans aren't thrilled about this modern twist. Then again, it's not necessarily all about male viewers - plenty of females will flock to theatres to see the new 'Man of Steel,' and those females want to see an empowered woman...not a flailing female.
How do you feel about the new Lois Lane? Take a look at the pics below and let us know what you think!
