Henry Cavill rumoured for cameo appearance in Batman Vs Superman
Following months of Batman casting news, inescapable rumours surrounding the possible introduction of Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman, the ongoing scenario regarding the forthcoming Justice League franchise and the possibility of appearances from DC characters including Nightwing, it's rumoured that Henry Cavill - star of 2013 movie Man Of Steel - might cameo in Batman Vs Superman. Probably not, though, let's face it.

10 dumbest things about Man Of Steel
We've all seen Man Of Steel now, right? So I don't have to worry about spoilers? Good, in that case: IT BE STOOPID.

Lessons learned from The Superman Project
I've spent the last two years obsessively dodging any and all promotions of Man Of Steel, purely so I could see a blockbuster untainted by trailers, posters and news stories. Now, having seen - and enjoyed - Man Of Steel - I ask the question: what have I learned? How have I grown? And why did I start doing this again? Here are my findings.

Review: Man Of Steel

Man Of Steel
Wow. That was my first reaction upon exiting Man Of Steel. Not necessarily 'Wow' in the sense that I had been overly impressed, but 'Wow' like I had been totally exhausted by the experience and felt so light-headed my brain couldn't quite process words with more than one syllable. Now I've had time for my synapses to cool, I can downgrade 'Wow' to 'Huh': though Man Of Steel is epic in the truest sense of the word, it pummels you so hard with its epicness that you don't have the time or the spatial awareness to notice its flaws. Maybe it's the fact I saw it cold, purposefully not having watched any trailers or promotional material beforehand, but flying blind made for an interesting experience – and dare I say, I perhaps enjoyed it more than others might due to that same lack of preconceptions.

Because, let's face it – comic-book fans will only be happy if they can spot unnecessary nods and homages in the film to prove that they can appreciate it on a much better level than your average cinema-going shitmuncher.

Review: Immortals

Immortals
To look at it, you might think Immortals has no idea how ridiculous it is – characters with glistening muscles and mountainous pectorals swing around their hugely phallic swords while wearing gold lamé hotpants, like the most expensive porn parody ever. The problem is, director Tarsem Singh knows exactly how ridiculous it looks, which means not only is it one of the campest movies of the year, but one of the most vain, too. Oddly, though, you can't take your eyes off it – it's like watching the butchest float on the Gay Pride parade crash in super slow-motion HD.

The Superman Project
You may or may not have seen the first official image of Henry Cavill as Superman from The Man Of Steel this week. Here it is. I won't be looking at it, or anything-else Superman-related for that matter, until its release in 2013, as part of a self-enforced Kryptonian diet – an experiment to experience a blockbuster knowing as little about it as possible.
