SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL
What would a Superman flick be without Metropolis citizens running in terror? The Man of Steel Facebook community spotted video of extras doing that very thing:
You almost have to wonder if anyone living in the fictional city can get insurance considering the town's high propensity for property damage.
Directed by Zack Snyder, release date: June 14th 2013
Chris Evans tells The Huffington Post (via Latino Review) that the filmmakers have "struck a really good balance" of action and character moments in the film. "There's obviously action, you've got all these super heroes, there's gonna be constant battle, I think every ten pages, there's going to be some sort of action, but you can have all the action in the world, if you don't have some substance, you got nothing," he explains. "It's not easy trying to bring all those characters together and find a story, but the best thing about [director Joss Whedon] is that Joss is a fan, Joss is a comic book guy. It feels so nice working with a guy that is well, the people I am trying to please is Joss. Joss is one of those dudes."
Directed by Joss Whedon & starring everybody, release date: May 4th, 2012
Sigourney Weaver offers this morsel about the film while talking with Hollywood Outbreak: "When you first find [the alien] in the first movie with what we call the Space Jockey, the kind of strange creature with the elephant face… anyway, the eggs were in its ship, where they come from? So ['Prometheus' is] following that storyline with, I hope, another great ensemble." While she admits that she hasn't read the script, she believes director Ridley Scott will deliver another fine film. Then he can move on from that to "Monopoly" or the "Blade Runner" sequel or ... I don't know, a movie about his house getting painted or something.
Directed by Ridley Scott, release date: 2012
THE END OF NETFLIX
