A couple of weeks ago we learned that the script for the upcoming Justice League movie had been totally trashed and needed to be rewritten from the ground up. With early press on the Man of Steel looking super positive, the latest rumor out of H’wood totally changes what Warner Bros. could be bringing to the table in 2015.
The rating a movie receives from the MPAA can do a lot to affect what the final box office numbers will look like.

According to Variety, Richard Schiff has joined the cast of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, playing Dr. Hamilton. Most will remember Dr. Hamilton from the Superman: The Animated Series show, but the character originally appeared in Adventures of Superman #424 (January 1987) as a main villain.

Yup, we now know what Fishburne will be doing following his surprise exit from CBS’ CSI this past May. Over the years, there have been a number of talented actors who have played Clark Kent’s boss at the Daily Planet, including Jackie Cooper, who played the newspaper chief in the 1978 Christoper Reeve Superman movie. This is pretty big news, but I really wonder if they’ll make
