A sequel to the first Superman film, "Man of Steel," is coming March 2016 and will be titled "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice." Plot details are still scarce since the film is still a long way away but there are rumors about certain details in production such as the alleged "No Jokes" policy and Lex Luthor's plan in the film.
For the "No Joke" rumor, Warner Bros. has supposedly mandated that the film will be shot at a more serious tone compared to the Marvel Universe films. The DC Comics Universe films have only begun to create films based on the comics.
Warner Bros. seems to be posititioning its films to be more serious than the Marvel films, where a little subtle (and not-so-sublte) comedy is inserted here and there. more >>
After months of being off the radar, news about the rumored "Iron Man 4" is swirling and it doesn't sound like there's much hope of the film being made. There won't be any "Iron Man 4" at the moment, according to Tony Stark/Iron Man actor himself, Robert Downey Jr.
"There isn't one in the pipe. No, there's no plan for a fourth 'Iron Man,'" he told Variety Sunday.
The 49-year-old actor was recently seen in Toronto to promote his new film "The Judge," which is the first film project of the newly-founded production company called Team Downey – a company under the Warner Bros which Downey and his wife Susan opened on June 14, 2010. more >>
The charming chemistry of "Divergent" on-screen couple Shailene Woodley (Tris Prior) and Theo James (Tobias "Four" Eaton) will once again be witnessed by fans and viewers for the upcoming second film adaptation of Veronica Roth's "Insurgent" series. The sequel is reportedly titled "The Divergent Series: Insurgent."
While the film is currently on its production stage, Woodley and James shared some insider information on what to expect in the forthcoming sequel.
"We're in Atlanta, it's summer, it's not cold, Chicago winter. Our director is different, the set design is different, the costumes are different," Woodley told the LA Times. "It feels much bigger. It's interesting because the movie feels bigger in tone and in image but in a scene it feels smaller. Some scenes feel like we're doing an indie film in a way because they're so full of truth." more >>

Latest developments about "Kill Bill" vol. 3 indicate that it is to be titled "Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair." This suggests that it would simply be a combination of the first two films – not a sequel but rather a full version. This has been given light by director Quentin Tarantino himself during a Dynamite Entertainment panel, where he was asked about the status of the upcoming Kill Bill movie.
"What's going on with that is originally back when Kill Bill was going to be one movie, I wrote an even longer anime sequence," the "Pulp Fiction" director stated. "So you see in the movie [O-Ren] kill her boss but then there was that long hair guy… The big sequence was her fighting that guy. I.G. [The Japanese Anime Studio] who did Ghost in the Shell said we can't do that and finish it in time for your thing. And [plus] you can't have a thirty-minute piece in your movie. I said – 'ok.'"
"It was my favorite part but it was the part you could drop. So we dropped it and then later when I.G. heard we were talking about doing Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair — they still had the script so without even being commissioned, they just did it and paid for it themselves," he continued. more >>

"There are certain characters and situations that come into play in the second film that will become much more crucial to the story by the third," DeBlois told The Hollywood Reporter. more >>
