Where is Gotham City and Metropolis exactly? New Jersey and Delaware? Ooookay.

When Batman and Superman were created, their respective home towns of Gotham City and Metropolis were invented as generic east coast American big cities, mostly being representative of New York, but also just like Christopher Nolan’s Gotham, incorporating parts of other east coast and midwest cities such as Pittsburgh, Chicago and Newark. Over the decades, as stories evolve, both Gotham and Metropolis have at times exhibited qualities that could put them nearly anywhere in the US, but they’re still at heart, northeastern metro areas. But where? According to many versions, New York exists alongside both Metropolis and Gotham, so where does that put the two fictional big cities? Despite the map above from 1978, neither town has ever officially been pinpointed on a map, though the header image, from an issue of ‘The World’s Greatest Heroes’, is probably about as accurate as it gets— if NYC exists in the DC universe, that puts Gotham in southern New Jersey and Metropolis just across the river, sitting on top of, or possibly right next to, Dover, Delaware.

DC’s movie schedule through 2018 is looking pretty amazing

Even though DC is coming late to the comic movie metaverse thing, looking at their film schedule through 2018, it may come at just the right time. Marvel has burned through their A string and while I’m sure they’ll make plenty of money with Doctor Strange and Ant Man, no one on the planet needs to be taught who Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the Flash are, and DC doesn’t have its biggest characters stuck in perpetual loan to other production companies.

-May 2016 – Batman v Superman
-July 2016 – Shazam
-Xmas 2016 – Sandman
-May 2017 – Justice League
-July 2017 – Wonder Woman
-Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
-May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2

"According to my source, "Like Marvel’s The Avengers, there will be cameos of superheroes for future installments. The cameos will include the already known Cyborg and Flash. Green Lantern [not played by Ryan Reynolds, thank god] may be introduced. And Aquaman will be seen in the Justice League movie."

Official BvS title will be ‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice’
Or… ‘Batman v Superman: Don of Justice’. Come on WB think about it, you guys said you wanted star power in this one, and there’s no other name that says “Justice” like Don Knotts.

Rumor has it that The Joker might be making some sort of appearance in Batman vs. Superman

With DC using Batman vs Superman as their main launching pad into Justice League, they’ve got to be careful not to overload the movie too much with characters. There’s already the titular Batman and Superman, and there will be appearances by Wonder Woman, Cyborg and Green Lantern, with Nightwing and Doomsday rumored. And the movie already has its main villain with Lex Luthor, so what’s up with BvS cinematographer Larry Fong tweeting a picture of a playing card embedded in concrete? There isn’t room at this point for the Joker in the film, but it is reasonable to think that they could tease the character as a lead-in to having him as the main villain in Justice League, which would certainly bring in the crowds.

Oooh… first image of Affleck as Batman next to his Batmobile
Zach Snyder just tweeted this image of Ben Affleck in his batsuit, next to his Batmobile that will be in Batman vs Superman. A look from the back shows that it’s a gorgeous combination of the Tumblr and the iconic Batmobile from Tim Burton’s 1989 movie. Also, yes, the batsuit has veins on it, but otherwise, it’s pretty much exactly how I hoped it would look, since this Bat is based on Frank Miller’s older, rougher Dark Knight from his 1986 Dark Knight Returns graphic novel.

The latest Lego Movie trailer spoofs Man of Steel

Is it possible to fall in love with a movie you’ve only seen so far in trailers?

Jesse Eisenberg cast as Lex Luthor in BvS. Jesse Eisenberg? Really?

After months of all kinds of incorrect rumors on who would be playing the evil Lex Luthor in Batman vs Superman, today it was announced that the role is going to Jesse Eisenberg. Yes, you read that correctly. Re-read it and it won’t change anything. Too young, and way too much of a possibility that writers won’t be able to help themselves in creating some sort of Facebook = Lex Luthor motif, even if it’s not slap-you-in-the-face overt, because… Eisenberg still looks like Mark Zuckerberg and everyone knows it. Bad casting choice… bad. Oh, and Jeremy Irons is going to be Alfred Pennyworth, but Jesse Eisenberg.

Casting call may or may not point to Wonder Woman appearance in Batman vs Superman

If DC is serious about a Justice League movie, they’re going to have to move fast. Which is why it’s both kind of surprising and kind of not surprising that a casting call for Batman vs. Superman has people talking about whether Wonder Woman might show up.
