There’s detail and then there’s DETAILS. Like the kind you’ll see in today’s Movie Morsels — for the title characters’ costumes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Plus, we’ve also got your first official look at Captain Jack Sparrow himself in the upcoming fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film, along with a trailer for the animated adaptation of The Little Prince and a clip from Danny Trejo’s latest. As well as the deets on Valiant’s comic superheroes as they hit the big screen in their own cinematic universe!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Want your most detailed look yet at the Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman costumes from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Some b-roll footage from a new Warner Bros. exhibit of the suits has just landed online. Check it out below. The first big screen team-up of DC’s three greatest champions — starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy, and Jason Momoa — arrives on March 25, 2016. Gotta admit, this may be the most functional Bat suit we’ve seen yet in a live-action movie…
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has tweeted the very first photo of Johnny Depp in the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Though Depp was recently injured during production, Pirates 5 is still set for release on July 7, 2017. Javier Bardem joins Depp and his fellow returning franchise stars Orlando Bloom and Geoffrey Rush in this tale of the hunt for Poseidon’s trident.

Harbinger and Bloodshot
While Warner Brother and Disney have their own superhero movie universes in DC and Marvel, Sony is looking to do the same with indie publisher Valiant. The studio just revealed that two comic titles — Harbinger and Bloodshot — will get two films each in the coming years, while a fifth film, titled Harbinger Wars, will unite the two series. The first Bloodshot is due in 2017, and will be directed by John Wick‘s David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, with a screenplay by Kick-Ass 2’s Jeff Wadlow and Eric Heisserer. Matthew Vaughn and Jason Kothari are producing. Heisserer will work alone on the Harbinger script, for which a director is still being sought.
The Little Prince
Remember The Little Prince, that classic children’s novel about a star-voyaging royal who meets a crashed pilot that taught generations of young Americans how to read French? Well, it’s a got a modern retelling in a new animated film starring the voices of Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Marion Cotillard, Benicio del Toro, James Franco, Ricky Gervais, Paul Giamatti, Albert Brooks and Mackenzie Foy. Directed by Kung Fu Panda‘s Mark Osborne, the movie will hit France on July 29th, with U.S. engagements to follow. Here’s the latest international trailer.
The always entertaining Danny Trejo teams up with Sonja Bennett and James Caan in Preggoland, a comedy about a young woman who finds her friends and family are much happier believing she’s with child, so she fakes a pregnancy. The film arrives in theaters and on VOD on May 8th from Gravita Ventures. Here’s a clip…
