Megatron’s New Movie Look Revealed?

These days our first glimpses of superhero or Transformers characters usually comes from action figures. Since the toys are developed alongside the films, most of the time someone will leak images of these toys before we get to see what their live-action counterparts look like. For example, someone sent JoBlo an image of what appears to be the new Megatron toy. The toy and its vehicle actually do match up with a truck that’s been seen around set. Definitely one of the more stylish looks for Megatron, which is good since I can never tell which giant metallic robot is which.
 
Emma Stone Signed to Multiple ‘Spider-Man’ Movies
Normally one doesn’t sign onto a superhero movie without their contract giving the studio an option to use them for at least three films. Thus, chances are great that Andrew Garfield, like Tobey Maguire who came before him, is already signed on for three Spider-Man movies. However, it wasn’t exactly guaranteed with Emma Stone, since she’s playing the character of Gwen Stacy who, well, -- spoiler warning – kind of dies in the comics.
That said, Stone was on Jay Leno last night where she admitted to signing on to multiple movies, saying that she may need to keep her blonde hair “for a couple of years” because “there’s a few Spider-men.” Hmm, so does that mean Peter Parker will be involved in a feisty love triangle between Gwen and Mary Jane in parts two and three? Guess we’ll see …
David Goyer Reveals ‘Superman’ Movie Inspiration Superman
In a new forward for the graphic novel Superman: Secret Origins, David Goyer (who’s writing the script for the new Superman movie) admits that this series of graphic novels are what helped inspire the idea for the new Superman movie. Here, I’ll let Goyer do the talking …
There is a heart breaking moment halfway through the first chapter in which young Clark is told the truth about his heritage. He races out into the night, sobbing, stumbling through the cornfields. Eventually, his foster father, Jonathan, finds him.”
‘I don’t want to be someone else,’ says Clark. ‘I don’t want to be different. I want to be Clark Kent.’
‘I want to be your son’
“Right there in that moment, Geoff contextualized Superman in a way that I’m not sure has ever really been done before. I had an ‘aha’ experience when I read that. For the first time I was able to grasp how lonely Clark must have been when he was growing up. And what a sacrifice Clark must continually make by being Superman.”
“As I write this, I am midway through my first draft of a new Superman screenplay. It’s a task that has stymied many talented fimmakers in the years since Donner’s film. And for all I know, it will end up stymying me as well.”
“But I’ve got one advantage that the screenwriters who came before me didn’t have—and that’s access to all the wonderful Superman stories written by Geoff Johns—first and foremost being the SECRET ORIGIN issues reprinted in the very volume you are now holding”
Is this a good place to start when it comes to the next Superman movie?
