    Award Season's Most Adorable Interviewee? Meet Young 'Fences' Star Saniyya Sidney

    Denzel Washington and Viola Davis may have the biggest Oscar buzz, but there is simply no Fences star cuter than the drama’s precocious young star Saniyya Sidney. Sidney, who has also appeared in Roots and American Horror Story, recalled her reaction to first hearing about the film, a family drama set in 1950s Pittsburgh and based on the Tony Award-winning play by August Wilson.

    Explaining the Great 'Batman v Superman' Divide: The Game Theory

    In a podcast last week, as he was offering his critique of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, inveterate comic nerd Kevin Smith noted something about the performance of Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader: “He moved the way that Batman moves and fights … [it was] the best cinematic presentation of Batman fighting you’ve ever seen in a movie. It looked like the video game, almost.” Smith was onto something with that tossed-off remark, something that explains the polarized reaction to film. Batman v Superman is more relatable as a video game.

    See Lex Luthor Commune With Alien in 'Batman v. Superman' Deleted Scene (Spoilers!)

    Piggybacking off the record-setting success of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros.  on Monday released a deleted scene that will presumably be part of Zack Snyder’s three-hour, R-rated director’s cut. The 45-second, near-wordless clip depicts Jesse Eisenberg’s manic Lex Luthor — acting speechless for a change — deep within the bowels of Zod’s Kryptonian vessel, communing with a giant creature that’s most definitely not of this world. The creature vanishes as a gun-toting SWAT team approaches, presumably to take Lex into custody.

Snyder’s Justice League, the sequel to his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set for November 2017, will be structured in similar fashion.

    'Batman v Superman': Here Are Their Greatest All-Time Fights From the Comics

    It’s been a schoolyard staple for decades: Who would win, Batman or Superman? At first blush, the easy answer would be the god-like Kryptonian in a cakewalk over the all-too-human Caped Crusader. But not so fast. While the two heroes are typically depicted as the bestest of super friends in the DC comics universe, they’ve come to blows for various reasons over the years and the fights are not as one-sided as one might think.

    New 'Batman v Superman' Posters Give Close-Up Look at DC's Hero Trio

    The DC superheroes are ready for their close-ups. Clearly unafraid of Star Wars’ mighty grip on the cultural conversation, on Wednesday, Warner Bros. and DC had the three main stars of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice post new posters featuring their characters to social media. There’s not a whole lot of new material here to take in or pick apart, but Ben Affleck did provide a closer look at Batman’s wicked new armor, which looks like Ironman’s Hulkbuster suit with even more impressive abs. #BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/seVdBBMh7x— Ben Affleck (@BenAffleck) December 16, 2015 As for Superman, we already know what his costume looks like, but are still impressed by Henry Cavill’s jaw line and perfectly cleft chin.

    See Superheroes and Stormtroopers Reimagined as 17th Century Aristocrats

    “As science fiction meets history of art, time meets an inexhaustible desire for mythology which is within each of us.” So writes photographer and artist Sacha Goldberger in the introduction to his Super Flemish series of Hollywood heroes and villains photographed in the style of 17th century aristocrats. To which we would then add, “And besides, the Hulk looks surprisingly elegant in ruffled collar.” The collection, which includes 39 pieces in all, was recently unveiled at an exhibition at School Gallery Paris. While the bulk of the characters featured are from the Marvel (Captain America, Iron Man) and Star Wars (Darth Vader, Yoda, and Leia among others) universes, DC Comics (Batman and Robin) and Disney (Cinderella and Snow White) also get some love.
