After an early bout of casting rumors around Zack Snyder's upcoming "Superman," the cord has quickly been tightened around the film, employing Christopher Nolan levels of secrecy (and no surprise really, given he's overseeing the project). In fact the only real concrete news of late is that Kevin Costner was confirmed as Pa Kent in the film, while Snyder himself revealed Viggo Mortensen won't be in the film (he was rumored for Zod). But this morning comes a fresh bit of potential casting, so get ready to put on your speculation hats on people.

For months now, through a barrage of teasing promotional materials, one question has remained about Zack Snyder's glitzy passion project "Sucker Punch" – what, exactly, is it? Is it a period drama about a young girl in a mental institution? Is it a dream world thriller a la "Inception"? Or is it some kind of experimental action film, in which characters take on dragons in one sequence and silvery robots in the next? Well, it turns out that the final product is all of these, and none of these things. It sure is noisy, though (especially if you watched it in IMAX like we did).

Actress Jokes She Would Play 'Superman's Dad If Snyder Asked Her, Also Gives Details On Her Disturbing Next Project 'Sleeping Beauty'EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch" is, if anything, a film like few we've seen before: a female-led fantasy action series where a bunch of girls kick some serious ass in a series of highly stylized fantasy worlds in an effort to escape their reality at an oppressive mental asylum. Baby Doll, the newest patient, leads the pack of young runaways and orphans as they fight off zombie soldiers, dragons and machine-gun wielding robots in an attempt to find the five keys to their freedom. We had the chance to sit down with Baby Doll herself, Emily Browning, and chat about what it took to prepare herself for fighting her way through a fantasy and the intense bonds such an experience can create.

These days, to be considered a major player, you gotta have your fingers in a lot of different pies, and television -- especially on premium cable like HBO or AMC -- are providing opportunities for talent to develop a broad array of work. One has to look no further than Mark Wahlberg or Tom Hanks who are heavily involved with the network with a variety of programs. So really, it's no surprise that David Gordon Green and Zach Galifianakis are making bigger strides down those avenues.
