Principal photography is getting underway on Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman: Justice League .5, or whatever they’re going to call this movie.

Plan B produced The Normal Heart. So Brange showed up last night at the NY premiere of the film. (I desperately want a screener for this. Is anyone listening?)
