Henry will attend not one, but 2 panels on this year’s Comic-Con! Via THR
San Diego Comic-Con attendees can enjoy a double-dose of Henry Cavill during the Warner Bros. Pictures panel on the Saturday of the annual pop culture extravaganza, as he promotes this summer’s The Man from UNCLE and next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Cavill will be joined on stage by Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki and director Guy Ritchie to promote the retro spy feature during the WB panel on July 11, which runs from 10:30am through 12pm in the massive Hall H of the San Diego Convention Center.
For Batman v Superman, he’ll be accompanied by director Zack Snyder, new Batman Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and cinema’s first Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot. The panel will feature an exclusive look at footage from the March, 2016 release.
There will also be a Cavill-less movie showcased during the panel, with Hugh Jackman, Garret Hedlund and Levi Miller taking the stage with director Joe Wright to promote Pan, the reimagining of the Peter Pan mythos.
In a statement, WB president, worldwide marketing and international distribution Sue Kroll said that Comic-Con “provides us a fantastic opportunity to interact with the fans and this year, as with every year, our aim is to surpass their expectations.” (Warners also promises “unexpected offerings that are sure to delight the crowd,” interestingly enough.) She added that Warners is also “thrilled” to offer filmmakers “a chance to experience the unique energy and enthusiasm” of the show.

By Annie Comments Off on BATMAN V SUPERMAN Official Synopsis Revealed
This summer is already off to a big start with films like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mad Max: Fury Road, and this weekend’s sure-to-be-monstrous Jurassic World, but next year summer comes very early. The March 2016 release date of Warner Bros.’ highly anticipated Man of Steel follow-up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice begins the summer blockbuster season literally just a few days after winter officially ends, and it’s sure to get things off to a momentous start.
We’ve already seen a number of teaser images and even a teaser trailer for director Zack Snyder’s star-studded superhero pic, but thus far Warner Bros. has yet to release an official synopsis. However, with the Licensing Expo set to begin tomorrow in Las Vegas, we’ve been provided with what appears to be the first synopsis for Batman v Superman. Take a gander below:
Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
This jibes with what we’ve been hearing about the pic over the past year or so, and with the tone of the first teaser trailer. Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio take the “first contact” story of Man of Steel to its most likely next scenario, and that’s where Batman comes in—as an Earthbound justice-seeker who sees the alien Superman as a threat to humanity.
But what’s this “new threat” that presumably puts an end to Batman and Superman’s bickering? We still don’t know exactly how Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor factors into the story, but one imagines he’s not the only antagonistic force that takes on the two heroes. And where does Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman fit? With nine months still to go until release we’ve still got a ways to go before the story unfolds onscreen, but this synopsis is certainly tantalizing.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on March 26, 2016 and also stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Scoot McNairy, Jason Momoa, and Holly Hunter.

By Annie Comments Off on Henry Cavill pulls out of ‘Stratton’
EXCLUSIVE: Man Of Steel star quits production just days before shooting was set to begin.
Henry Cavill has pulled out of the leading role in Special Forces thriller Stratton, less than a week before shooting was set to begin on June 2.
Action director Simon West (Con Air, The Expendables 2) was due to start shooting in London and Rome from next week on the film, based on the first of a series of novels by Duncan Falconer.
GFM Films is providing finance and worldwide sales and was selling the film at Marché du Film in Cannes last week.
But GFM co-founder Guy Collins told ScreenDaily that it was now contacting distributors to inform them of the change.
“After securing many distribution deals ahead of the market, we had a really good Cannes and had closed more deals ahead of production next week,” said Collins.
“But just before leaving Cannes last Friday we were informed by the production company that they wanted to push the start date back by around three weeks to finalise some additional casting and make some further fixes to the script.
“Then, during several meetings this week in London with both sets of producers including Henry Cavill, he told us he has decided not to shoot this script at this time. He had a different vision of what the film should be to us and the production team and wanted to delay production until September and shoot a different story and script.”
The project was originally optioned and developed by Ileen Maisel and Lawrence Elman’s Amber Entertainment Ltd, who are co-producers with Promethean Productions, the new production company created by Henry Cavill, his brother Charlie Cavill and producer Rex Glensy.
Cavill was to play Stratton a SBS (Special Boat Service) operative for MI5 as he and his team risk life, limb and national security to track down an international terrorist cell.
“It has been a shock for us and will be for our distributors,” added Collins, whose GFM Films was most recently involved with upcoming Simon Pegg comedy Absolutely Anything.
“We want to keep the production team together and Simon West as director so we have no option other than to exercise our rights under our funding agreements and replace Henry – which is not an easy task.”
When Cavill first came on board he said: “I’ve long wanted to tell a story about the British Special Forces and finally the opportunity has come around. Duncan Falconer’s work is fantastic and we are incredibly fortunate to be working with him so closely.
“We plan to convert the books to cinema as accurately as possible while keeping them topical. Simon West is a perfect match for this movie with his ability to marry storytelling and action, both of which are essential to do this project justice.”
The British actor will next be seen in Guy Ritchie’s spy thriller The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
Cavill’s representation had not responded to Screen at time of publication.
