Read The Fake 'Batman vs Superman' Screenplay That Punk'd The Internet


Several months ago several news websites got a hold of what seemed to be a draft of Zack Snyder's Batman vs Superman (now titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) script. Some found it to be so authentic that they ran news story's with plot points and cameos that we would see in the film. Well it was all for nothing because the screenplay was completely fan-made. Some news sites thought that Clerks director Kevin Smith conspired with WB to purposely "leak" this fake draft online. That turned out to be false also. The real author can be found on Twitter and you can go follow him @SonOfArrogance. He has given us special permission to post said script online for all to read! This prank is definitely up there along with Justin Bieber claiming to be cast in Batman vs Superman as Robin..

Lastly, it only took him 5 days to write the first draft but has since been revised...

FIRST LOOK: Adrianne Palicki in Her Full 'Mockingbird' Costume


Yesterday, we got our first glimpse of Adrianne Palicki as an undercover S.H.I.E.L.D agent who had infiltrated Hydra Bobbi Morse. Well next week on S.H.I.E.L.D she will finally become the West Coast Avenger known as Mockingbird. Now Marvel has released a first look at her costume online:

:: CLICK TO ENLARGE ::

Costume Designer Ann Foley goes onto talk about the costume designs:
"It's important to me to keep certain elements, but we had to change it, obviously, for practicality, because it had to fit into our world. It had to have a kind of tactical feeling to it too so that it made sense in our universe. She's got rivets that are in the straps across her chest, and those are there as a tribute to the buttons that go down the side of her [most recent] costume [in the comics], as well as the colors that we were using, [which] are a tribute as well. Her colors are navy blue and white with a little bit of black in there, [but] white would not have been pretty on camera so we changed it to grey. [We] still tried to maintain the original style of what was in the comic book because [with] that white panel that goes up her center and down her legs, [so] we've mirrored that in her costume but in gray instead of white."

The real question is when will she meet up with her future lover and husband Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner in the movies.

Is 'The Conjuring' Director James Wan Directing A Movie For DC Comics?


Yesterday, it was announced that The Conjuring and next years Fast & Furious 7 director James Wan is expected to return for The Conjuring 2. Interestingly enough the President of New Line Cinema Toby Emmerich comments on Wan returning to the horror franchise but also teases there's another reason Warner Brothers and New Line brought him back:
"James will make an important movie for New Line and Warner Bros or DC, and that is definitely part of the plan, and a reason for bringing him into the family. He's the only overall director with a deal here, because we see him as a class of one."
 As we all know New Line Cinema is teaming up with DC to produce Shazam co-starring Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam. So it's extremely interesting that they specifically name drop Wan involved with DC. Now let it be known last week during DC's huge slate reveal of films they announced that New Line Cinematic and Warner Brothers will be co-producing all upcoming DC films not just Shazam...

Either way it looks like director James Wan is on DC's radar for directing one of their upcoming slate of films be it Flash, Aquaman or even Shazam this is exciting news!

'Chronicle' Screenwriter Max Landis Unveils His 436-Page 'Super Mario' Script


Today, Max Landis the man who wrote the fan favorite POV-film Chronicle has unveiled a 436 page screenplay for Super Mario Brothers. (via MaxLandisWrites.com) Now before you think this is for an upcoming reboot of the Nintendo charact3ers after the disaster that was the 90's version starring John Leguizamo...it's not. Landis wrote this script back when he was 19 before he knew how to actually write a screenplay properly and professionally. For one he name drops almost every character that has ever appeared in a Mario game just because. But if you like to read his treatment it is below for you're viewing pleasure. Oh, and if this movie ever did become a movie it would be around 7 hours long! (1 page of a script = 1 minute of screen time)
