Dark Knight Rises and Superman start shooting in May and June

Nov. 19, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Two hotly anticipated superhero franchises both now have approximate start dates, and they're remarkably close to each other. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL (is that the official title?) are both set to start shooting this spring with 2012 eyed as a release for both. That's going to be one hell of a big summer.

The news comes from two different sources. Buried in the Deadline report that Warners in now searching for their Man of Steel is that filming starts in June. Meanwhile, the always loose-lipped Michael Caine told empire that shooting for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES starts in May and wraps in November, with the first script getting to the actors in January. As for any other plot details, Caine says Nolan has all that info locked up tight. Duh.

Which of these two projects are you more excited for? Instinct would say DARK KNIGHT RISES as I can't remember a more anticipated movie since uh, THE DARK KNIGHT. But a Nolan guided, Snyder directed SUPERMAN should be a sight to behold, and interest should really start to pick up once it actually finds a lead.

Extra Tidbit: And let's not forget Aronofsky's THE WOLVERINE which I'm getting more and more excited for as new details come to light.

Why don't they just give the part of Superman to Brandon Routh already? He did a great job in Superman Returns!

The great news about so many great, big budget movies coming out at around the same time: less 3D. Think about it, there are only a limited amount of theaters with 3d screens and usually studios don't release their big movies within a month or so of each other or there won't be enough 3d screens to go around. So now when a movie like Green Lantern comes out in 3d, all the other movies that week and probably the following week or two will have to be in regular 2d.

Regarding the Superman reboot

There's no "Superman" in the title. It's just The Man of Steel.

cant wait for the the dark knight rises, title is spot on couldnt ask for more, as at the end of the dark knight he had kinda fallen, so he clearly has to rise again!! superman meh, its not even that good a comic, the villians in it are pretty poor. apart from batman the DC universe doesnt really have many good villians. it could be good tho my only issue is synder likes his cgi and i hate it, mby nolan will have a word and say dont make a whole film with it!

SUPERMAN/BATMAN

This would make an awsome poster for a live action Superman/Batman movie. Hollywood should get into gear making it a reality. Does any one think it will happen?

Realized I forgot Hangover, MI4, Super 8, edited before I saw your reply.

And you add even more films, totally forgot about Sherlock 2. 2011 looks to be a darn good year for movies as well as 2012. :)

Goddamn, both 2011 and 2012 are set to rape the incredibly shitty 2010.

Just curious (and lazy, but isn't CAPT. AMERICA 2012 with AVENGERS? Or did it shift to 2011? Cause I'd rather not wait!

Thanks CJN.

I thought originally CAPT was announced as preceding AVENGERS by a month in 2012 (like May CAPT, June AVENGERS), but maybe I'm wrong. It did seem like an odd choice considering they're already shooting (but not done?).

Either way, I'm glad we'll all be enjoying some WWII action next summer.

can't you see the downside of this : more movies, so less space for them to make money, so more flops, even for good movies... And don't forget that you might no afford to see them all because theatre gets more and more expensive...
Yeah, I know, I'm bitching around ;-) !

Fantasizing..

Wonder if having Nolan involved in both would mean they'd let Supes and The Bat have cameos in each others' movies. They're both shooting at the same time, both being made by the same production companies, and looks to be too good a chance to pass up.. Its the most we can ask for in the absence of a movie featuring both.

WB, do the right thing for once!

Far as casting for Supes go, I cannot fathom why James Marsden's name isn't up there for the part of Superman/Kent. He has the charm/comic timing/looks equivalent to Christopher Reeve. I know the universe will implode because he played Lois' squeeze in Returns, but I still think he's a great choice.

It's nice to see two of DC's heavy hitters both coming out in 2012; one being the conclusion to one hero's story while the other is a fresh start. I'm definitely looking more forward to TDKR.

Batman & Superman Movie

Nolan should also do a Movies with Batman and Superman in it! I think that would be great! Remember the Batman/Superman Banner in "I am Legend" ?! :-)

i really really wish....

...that c. nolan would reconsider that title: the dark knight rises. batman/the dark knight has already risen (batman begins). he's already here and active etc. no need to rise again. gotham city is a great title, or batman: (insert tag line here) would be fine too.

the title 'the dark knight rises' as a title is the only mistake nolan has made. and its not too late to change it

I think it makes sense because in terms of the comic book Batman the movie Batman is incomplete, he's not really much of a Detective or a scientist and he doesn't have the cave yet so maybe the title Rises refers to his finally becoming the complete Dark Knight and excepting the fact that he can't live a so called normal life.

actually TDK ends with him getting the title Dark Knight (the voice over at the end when he's running away). now the third movie will be about what he does as the Dark Knight

Snyder SOOO UNDERRATED!!!

Only casting the part terribly can hold him back -- Hopefully, WB keeps their noise out, and let the man choose the main character!!!!! BTW 2012 is the end of the world! LOL

Excited greatly for both, but for me to decide on which one I am more excited for depends on who is cast as Clark Kent/Superman. I am praying that Jon Hamm gets the part.
