Chewbacca was forced to step in to break up a fight between Mr. Incredible and Batgirl.

Tensions between the costumed characters spilled over on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame yesterday as Mr. Incredible launched an attack on Batman.

But in astonishing footage, captured by production company FilmOn.com, the character from Star Wars grabs Mr. Incredible in a bid to pull him off his costumed rival.

Batman-Superman Movie Bumped to 2016, Sets Up Marvel Showdown

The superhero team-up is set for May 6, 2016 as a Peter Pan movie takes the previous July 2015 release date.

Superman and Batman are going to have to wait a little longer to team up.

Warner Bros. announced Friday that the Man of Steel follow-up will hit theaters May 6, 2016, nine months later than its previous July 17, 2015 release date. That date will now be reserved for a Peter Pan movie directed by Joe Wright.

The move sets up a potential Warner Bros/DC showdown with rival Disney/Marvel, which also has set an untitled Marvel move for that date. Marvel has had huge success with releasing big-budget tentpoles in early May. Iron Man 3 became the second biggest-grossing film of 2013 after an early May release. In 2012, The Avengers became the third-biggest grossing film of all time after an early May release.

The early May berth has been associated with Marvel since Columbia released Spider-Man in 2002. X2, the X-Men sequel from Fox, followed the following year. Marvel has released all of its Iron Man movies in that time frame as well as Thor. In fact, a Marvel-based movie has come out each May since 2006.

Additionally, that weekend is so connected to a comic book movie that retailers in North America organize a yearly Free Comic Book Day on the Saturday.

Warners is now aiming for its share of the early May box office. The studio is also pushing production on the movie to the second quarter; it was initially slated to begin shooting this winter.

“We are happy to take advantage of these coveted summer dates, which are perfect for two of our biggest tentpole releases,” Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman said in a statement. “We share the fans’ excitement to see DC Comics’ most popular figures, Superman and Batman, together on the big screen for the first time, which will now be arriving in theatres in May 2016.  Peter Pan has delighted people of every generation for more than a century, so we are thrilled to bring him back to the screen next summer for today’s moviegoers.”

Batman-Superman is the high-profile follow-up to last summer’s Man of Steel, which grossed $668 million worldwide and rebooted the Superman franchise for Warner Bros.

The follow-up movie, which also will feature the Caped Crusader, is in casting mode and has lined up Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in addition to Henry Cavill, who is reprising his role as Superman.

Jason Momoa is in negotiations for a role as well.

Zack Snyder is directing the movie, which is now undergoing a rewrite by Chris Terrio, the Oscar-winning scribe who penned Argo. David Goyer wrote the initial draft.

“We know that there is already great anticipation building for the next super hero film from Zack Snyder, and we are equally eager to see what he has in store for Superman and Batman as they share the big screen for the first time ever,” Warners president of international distribution Veronika Kwan Vandenberg added in a statement. “The summer release corridor is also perfect for Joe Wright’s ambitious new Peter Pan adventure, reimagining the ageless story of the beloved and forever-young hero for audiences worldwide.”

Pan, meanwhile, is a Peter Pan origin story written by Jason Fuchs that will star Hugh Jackman as the pirate Blackbeard and tell the formative years of Pan and the young man who becomes Captain Hook. The movie will shoot in late spring/early summer.

When I Grow Up I Want to be like Mommy

First Grade Drawing – PRICELESS!
A first grade girl handed in the drawing above for her homework assignment. 

The teacher graded it and the child brought it home.  

She returned to school the next day with the following note: 

Dear Ms. Davis, 

I want to be perfectly clear on my child’s homework illustration. 
It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint surrounded by male customers with money. 
I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. 
This drawing is of me selling a shovel. 

Sincerely, 

Mrs. Harrington

Anaheim Comic Con – Part IV (Costumes)

This is the 4th and final blog about the Anaheim Comic-Con. I am sharing some blogs that MiceChat Moderator Coheteboy had blogged about on Micechat.com.

No convention would be complete without attendees wearing costumes of their favorite characters. Here are some from the convention.

 

Anaheim Comic Con – Part III (Guests)

According to MiceChat Moderator Coheteboy, the biggest draw this year seemed to be celebrities as almost half of the convention floor was devoted to signing autographs. There were quite a few Disney celebrities such as Charles Fleisher (Roger Rabbit), Mickey Rooney (Fox and the Hound, Pete’s Dragon), Bill Farmer (Goofy), Ed Asner (Up), and the latest member of the Disney team, Stan Lee. William Shatner and Billy Dee Williams were also on hand though Irvin Kershner, director of The Empire Strikes Back had to cancel.
