A sequel to last month's hit "Superman" film "Man of Steel" is not only in the works, but will feature two of DC Comic's best-known caped crusaders - Superman and Batman - facing off against each other, director Zack Snyder said on Saturday. Snyder, who directed British actor Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, was a surprise addition to the end of the Warner Bros. film panel at San Diego's Comic-Con, an annual comics convention, and received thunderous applause from the 6,000-plus in attendance. After announcing the plan to bring the two superheroes together, Snyder issued a statement via Warner Bros. saying the two would be fighting each other, and conceded this might surprise some. "Let's face it, it's beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest superheroes in the world," said Snyder, who has been confirmed as director of the as-yet unnamed sequel.

Late kung fu superstar Bruce Lee may be an international icon, but he is still not the complete local hero in Hong Kong. Fans are marking his death 40 years ago this weekend with art gallery shows, exhibitions and even street graffiti but some people are urging Hong Kong's government to do more to honor the former British colony's biggest star. Lawmakers and scholars have joined calls from fans, fearing the government is wary of fully embracing Lee's legacy. His enduring spirit of youthful rebellion and a willingness to fight big oppressors may have spooked city leaders prone to second-guessing their political masters in Beijing. "The Hong Kong government or the people on top of the governing body are not thinking, first of all, in terms of Hong Kong people's mindset," said Lo Wai-luk, an associate professor in the Academy of Film at Hong Kong Baptist University. "They think of how to do something to please the main Chinese government, or not to violate" what they think Beijing likes, he said. More»

A collection of late actress Elizabeth Taylor's personal items, including jewelry, cocktail dresses and film costumes, will go under the hammer in Beverly Hills, California, Julien's Auctions said on Tuesday. The collection, which comes from an unidentified former employee of Taylor, will first go on display in Ireland on Tuesday and will hit the auction block on October 12. The top item, an 18-karat gold, multi-gem earring and necklace set, is expected to fetch between $10,000 and $15,000. The necklace and earrings set include multiple topaz, diamond, peridot and citrine gemstones. Taylor, who died in 2011 at the age of 79, epitomized Hollywood glamour from its golden age with her love of diamonds, her violet eyes and a tumultuous love life that included eight marriages, two of them to Welsh actor Richard Burton.

Rapper Kanye West and his socialite-fiance Kim Kardashian are reportedly planning to marry at an exotic location in Egypt. The couple welcomed their first child, North West, last month. "Kim and Kanye were talking to the baby when in mid-sentence he asked Kim to marry him. She started to cry and mouthed the word, 'Yes'," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying. "This time she wants something different and exotic. She likes how Katy Perry and Russell Brand got married in India with an Indian-themed wedding. She wants that. Kim thinks she's the spitting image of Egyptian goddess Isis, so she has been talking about doing an Egyptian-themed wedding, at the pyramids," the source said. "She says Kanye digs the idea too. It will cost millions to fly everyone to Egypt, but money is no object," added the source. More»

Oscar-winning writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash first explored a father's journey with George Clooney in their 2011 hit "The Descendants," and now they turn their focus on a teenager's coming-of-age story with an all-star cast in their latest film. Faxon and Rash explore dysfunctional family dynamics in independent comedy "The Way, Way Back," out in U.S. theaters on Friday, drawing on their own childhood experiences to follow the journey of a teenage boy on his summer vacation. The film, which has garnered mainly positive reviews and earned a score of 65 out of 100 on review aggregator Metacritic.com, stars Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney and Maya Rudolph, and centers on 14-year-old Duncan, played by newcomer Liam James. Shy and socially awkward, Duncan must spend a summer with his mother (Collette) and her new boyfriend (Carell), and finds a mentor in quirky, carefree Owen (Rockwell), the owner of a local water park.

John David Wilson, the animator, producer and director whose work included the opening credits to Grease and Lady and the Tramp has died at 93. The British-born artist, who also worked on Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and a Stravinsky ballet died in a Blackpool nursing home, Hollywood Reporter said.

Celebrations have erupted across the Palestinian territories at news that a wedding singer from the Gaza Strip has won the Arab Idol talent TV show. Mohammed Assaf, 23, was a virtual unknown until a few weeks ago but has now become a local hero. The contest, held in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, was watched by millions across the region. Fireworks were being set off in Gaza City and East Jerusalem as revellers thronged the streets. Assaf was declared the winner on Saturday evening, a day after he competed in a final against two other singers - Ahmed Jamal from Egypt and Farah Youssef from Syria. The talent contest has been broadcast on the Beirut-based MBC TV channel since March. His last solo song, performed on Friday, had a political edge, asking for the Palestinian traditional scarf to be raised and calling for reconciliation, the BBC's Yolande Knell reports from Gaza City.

Jon Stewart took his politically engaged American satire to Cairo on Friday, appearing on a show hosted by the man known as "Egypt's Jon Stewart", who has faced investigation for insulting the president and Islam. Among barbs aimed at Egypt's ruling Islamists and others, Stewart praised host Bassem Youssef for taking risks to poke fun. "If your regime is not strong enough to handle a joke," he said, "then you don't have a regime." Youssef is a cardiologist whose online comedy clips inspired by Stewart's "Daily Show" won him wild popularity and a prime-time TV show after the 2011 revolution that ended military rule. He paid tribute to his guest as a personal inspiration as the pair traded gags over Stewart's impressions of a visit to Cairo. Stewart in turn played down any difficulties his wit created for him in the United States, telling Youssef: "I tell you this, it doesn't get me into the kind of trouble it gets you into. I get in trouble, but nowhere near what happens to you." With Egypt still in ferment and elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi facing off against liberals who fear he plans to smother personal freedoms, Youssef was released on bail after being questioned in March over alleged insults to Morsi and the channel he appears on was threatened with losing its license.

Musician Andrew W.K., the self-described "party king," set a new world record after playing drums nonstop for 24 hours during MTV's O Music Awards this week. The O Music Awards, which give out accolades in a variety of fan-voted categories to musicians who make a significant impact online through social media, was streamed solely online as a 24-hour virtual concert. The 34-year-old American, who was born Andrew Fetterly Wilkes-Krier, drummed for 24 hours from Wednesday to Thursday, earning the world record for Longest Drum Session in a Retail Store, MTV said in a statement. A message left seeking confirmation from Guinness World Records, which verifies official records, was not immediately returned. Artists such as the Jonas Brothers, Hanson, Atlas Genius and Kate Nash performed from the MTV studios in New York, Los Angeles and Nashville during the 24-hour live music festival that MTV billed as the largest online-only event of its kind.

The Middle East peace process is akin to forcing yourself to go to the gym. At least that’s what Hollywood star Sharon Stone thinks. “We can have peace in the Middle East now, the minute that we just do it,” Stone said in comments recorded on video during a trip to Israel where she attended President Shimon Peres’ annual conference about Israel’s place in the world. “It’s like going to the gym, when do you not want to be fat? Today? When do you want to be in shape? Today? When do you want to stop being mean? How about today?” The "Basic Instinct" star made the comments as she visited children at Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital, and was asked about the chances peace in the conflict-ridden region. “I think there can be peace in the Middle East any minute that you choose to have it,” Stone told reporters.
