The writing narrative around “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is a fascinating one that hasn’t really come to full light yet, but it’ll be interesting to hear what happened when all the filmmakers are ready to talk. You’ll remember Zack Snyder and co. originally had a May, 2015 release date in mind and as early as October of last year, the filmmaker was shooting some kind of football game scene that involved a team from Gotham (Batman’s digs) and Metropolis (obviously the home to Superman). It all seemed like full steam ahead.

Dwayne Johnson, Shazam
Dwayne Johnson doesn’t really know how to play the super hero tease game. Or at least, he’s not very good at it and if this were a Christopher Nolan project, the filmmaker would be having a heart attack by now. So the “Hercules” star already basically let it out of the bag that he’ll be playing Captain Marvel or will have a role in that D.C./Warner Bros. film. And now, unless he’s really screwing with us, he’s tweeted some not so subtle photos.

Marvel Vs. DC
A simple, but terrific (and possibly frightening) observation has been made by our friends over at Rope Of Silicon: over the next four years, if everything goes according to plan for every studio, we're going to see twenty-three (count ‘em) super hero films. Because, as you know, the comic book movie arms race is officially on.

Godzilla
Coming out the gate today with $93 million in its opening weekend, the 2nd highest debut of the year, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are feeling mighty good about “Godzilla.” In fact, in today’s box-office piece we said this mighty opening essentially guarantees a sequel. And yep, that’s the case. Legendary & WB looked at the receipts, plus the international ones that added a $103 million for almost a $200 million worldwide opening weekend and said to each other, “are you thinking what I’m thinking?” Duh, of course they are (btw, it’s international debut is the biggest of 2014).

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Because "There And Back Again" sounded too casual and leisurely. Because "Into The Fire," a recent rumored title because Warner Bros. had registered the domain name, will probably just be used for a video game version . Because over $2 billion in worldwide grosses wasn't enough. Warner Bros. announced today they have changed the title of Peter Jackson's third 'Hobbit' movie and have retitled it, "The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies." Does that mean the movie, as Slant tweeted this am will be broken up into "five more excruciating chapters?" Thankfully not, but you can understand the concern.

David S. Goyer, D.C.
Connecting universes is cool these days, but only insofar as that a billion dollars is cooler than a million dollars. Proof in the pudding? With the release of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become the highest grossing franchise of all time domestically, beating both the "Star Wars" and "Harry Potter" series.

Retired Batman
A new tweet has arrived people. A tweet! Yes, it’s Friday and we're all halfway into the weekend, so let’s get right into it. What are we carping on about? Superhero in-the-know blogger Umberto Gonzalez has been generally on the money with his “Batman Vs. Superman” reporting of late. This morning he tweeted he was about to retweet a “scoop” about the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed superhero film for Warner Bros. And so he did, retweeting film producer Daniel Alter who tweeted “Can't wait for #BatmanvsSuperman.. #batfleck semi-retired/not speaking to Robin anymore… Controlling drones from the batcave.”

With Zack Snyder's “Man Of Steel” sequel set to begin production in earnest next year, with Ben Affleck donning the cape and cowl for a brawl with the Man of Tomorrow, screenwriter David S. Goyer and Warner Bros. have decided to make their professional relationship official. We expect their Facebook status should change any second now.

When director Zack Snyder first announced "Superman Vs. Batman," at Comic Con this summer, he asked one of his “Man Of Steel” cast members to read from a key line in Frank Miller’s seminal graphic novels, “The Dark Knight Returns.” Batman said to his adversary, Superman: “I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come, in all your most private moments, I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you.” And it would set the tone for all things to come afterwards.

Felony Joel Edgerton
While some projects die on the vine and enter the hallowed "what if" halls of legendary projects that never got made, some eventually come creaking back to life. The latest lucky one to defy the odds is "Shantaram," a former Johnny Depp-led project that Warner Bros. is reviving. And while Depp has stepped back in the producers chair for his Inifinitum Nihil production shingle, he has handpicked a new lead: Aussie Joel Edgerton whose stock in Hollywood just keeps rising and rising.
