Photos of Full ‘Batman vs Superman’ Batmobile Possibly Leaked

The latter half of this week may give us the first on-set photo of Ben Affleck as Batman we’ve all been craving. Last night, a four-day shoot began at the Russell Industrial Center in Detroit. The exterior of this locale may be the most Gotham-appropriate building we’ve seen for a live-action adaptation since the Burton days. In fact, it looks suspiciously similar to the building in which the first Batman and Batmobile photo was taken. Since sightings of Henry Cahill on-set in the super suit have been plentiful, and such sightings have NOT occurred here, we think this week may focus on a solo Batman outing. Could it be possible that our first introduction to the new Caped Crusader takes place in a dingy, gigantic warehouse? Nearby citizens have been alerted to loud noises and the use of pyrotechnics. Might we meet the Dark Knight as he viciously deals with a certain Firefly?

Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The Ape-pire Strikes Back

In 2011, audiences were shocked upon seeing the surprisingly-great re-imagining, Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  Director Rupert Wyatt, and screenwriters/married couple Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, delivered a well-conceived story that paid homage to original five-film series throughout.  Andy Serkis’ portrayal of Caesar, the leader of the apes, quickly garnered overwhelming praise for its subtlety and believability.  By all means, no one expected such a great, modern film with an old, rather ridiculous premise.  However, despite little marketing compared to other summer blockbusters, Rise surprised us all with its characters and heart.
