Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is easily shaping up to be one of the most highly-anticipated movies of next year, hitting theaters on March 25, 2016. As the countdown continues to this superhero movie, which brings Batman and Superman together on the big screen for the first time, director Zack Snyder revealed in an interview with 411 Mania that the new trailer will be coming soon, but he wouldn't reveal an exact date.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Diane Lane as Martha Kent. It is widely believed that other members of the Justice League, Jason Momoa's Aquaman, Ezra Miller's The Flash and Ray Fisher's Cyborg will be introduced at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

According to Deadline, these talks took place several months ago, while director Zack Snyder was still hard at work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. At this time, it's believed that no active talks are on-going. Zack Snyder is very busy with his DC Comics slate of films coming up, starting with Dawn of Justice next year. He is also overseeing the entirety of the DCEU, along with directing Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2. It's believed that he doesn't have a lot of time to devote to a TV series.
If the Watchmen TV series does move forward in the near future, it isn't known how much Zack Snyder will actually be involved. His participation in the actual production is speculated to be very limited. Watchmen was first published as a 12 issue miniseries in 1986, created by writer Alan Moore, artist Dave Gibbons and colorist John Higgins. Zack Snyder directed a feature film adaptation of the title in 2009. If the show moves forward, this will continue to expand the DC brand to another Time Warner TV Network, joining The CW, who currently have The Flash and Arrow airing new episodes, with DC's Legends of Tomorrow coming in spring 2016. CBS has Supergirl airing this fall, and Fox has Gotham airing in its second season. At this moment, TNT is currently developing a live-action series based on Teen Titans simply titled Titans.Read More
A Watchmen TV show? That's what a new rumor claims may be happening at HBO, with original director Zack Snyder in-line to produce this retelling of the popular comic book miniseries. Zack Snyder first directed an adaptation of Alan Moore's iconic tale in 2009, but it failed to set the box office on fire. Many fans thought it was better suited to a long form storytelling format. And that may turn out to be the case.
Even before it went into production, many believed Alan Moore's seminal DC Comics adventure Watchmen was to unwieldy for the big screen. It is a monster work of interconnecting story lines and referential plot. And even with a runtime of 3 hours, it all couldn't be contained within the frame work of Zack Snyder's film. So now he wants to try again. This time, the story will be told in a serialized nature better suited to its attributes.Read More
While production was under way this summer, set photos surfaced that showcased Bucky/Winter Soldier running alongside Falcon, hinting that Bucky is fighting alongside his old friend Steve Rogers/Captain America. We also saw Bucky in concept art that showed the members of each "team," lead by Cap and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). The actor teased that he has scenes with Elizabeth Olsen, joking that he doesn't have any real powers when compared to her, while stating that, despite the massive number of heroes in the movie, it is still a Captain America story.."Yeah, it's awesome, and I kind of like that he doesn't really have super powers. He's got this metal arm and stuff, sort of the serum situation, but he's sort of just a dude. It's funny placing him next to the Scarlet Witch or something where she's got all the stuff- [waves his hand, imitating Wanda doing magic] I'm going, "What is he going to do? He's just going to sort of block a lot of stuff with his metal arm." But I think it's good, it's relatable. He could die at any point. I mean, I know everybody's treating it like there are all these Avengers in it, like it's Avengers 2.5 or something, and there's an element of that, but it's still at the end of the day very much a Captain America film. It's different from The Avengers, it's definitely its own entity, totally connects to the last Winter Soldier film, and the Russos' stamp is all over it.
