Zack Snyder to introduce Batman in Man of Steel 2

Comic-Con LogoIt was just revealed at San Diego Comic Con earlier today that Zack Snyder will introduce Batman in to the universe he created in Man of Steel. Henry Cavill will return as Superman but Batman has yet to be cast. Snyder is currently working on the story with David S. Goyer, who will pen the script solo.

Review: The Lone Ranger (2013)

Review: Pacific Rim (2013)

245941id1b_PacRim_1sided_120x180_2p_400.inddPacific Rim is what all summer blockbusters strive to be: entertaining. We can practically see the film’s director, Guillermo del Toro, standing over these giant robots and monsters like a boy playing with action figures, so it’s no surprise that he has stated this is the film he’s wanted to make since he was a child. Surely inspired by the Godzilla movies of the 60’s, Pacific Rim has all the action, destruction and mayhem that you’d expect a giant monster movie to have, even if it kind of drops the ball a little in the character department.
