Trailer-The Batman

Warner Bros. has released the first teaser trailer for Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’ and it’s pretty outstanding.

The Batman will be a noir-style story, that will heavily on Batman in his detective mode. Which is something no other Batman movie has done yet. In the comics, he’s the world’s greatest detective. Director Matt Reeves has said that it’s going to tell a deep and psychological story and confirmed that the movie will not be an origin story. We’ll be seeing Batman in the second year of his

The film stars Robert Pattinson as Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Cat Woman, Andy Serkis as Alfred, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone and Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson. Gil Perez-Abraham (Orange is the New Black), Charlie Carver (Teen Wolf), and Max Carver.

The Batman is now scheduled for release on October 1, 2021.

Ben Affleck is Batman returning

According to Vanity Fair, Ben Affleck is set to don the Batman cowl again. It’s thought to be a cameo role and it will be alongside Michael Keaton, who is also reprising his role as Batman from the 1989 Tim Burton film. Both will appear in The Flash, starring Ezra Miller.

The Flash director Andy Muscietti said:

“He’s a very substantial part of the emotional impact of the movie. The interaction and relationship between Barry and Affleck’s Wayne will bring an emotional level that we haven’t seen before. It’s Barry’s movie, it’s Barry’s story, but their characters are more related than we think. They both lost their mothers to murder, and that’s one of the emotional vessels of the movie. That’s where the Affleck Batman kicks in.”

I honestly didn’t see this coming, I thought Affleck was done with the character. It’s nice to see he’s willing to come back to give the character a proper send-off.

The Flash is scheduled for release on June 3, 2022.

Confirmed: Ben Affleck directing a Batman movie 

It was finally confirmed last night that a standalone Batman movie co-written, starring and, directed by Ben Affleck is officially in development. Warner Bros. boss Kevin Tsujihara took to the stage at CinemaCon to break the news. 

Speculation that Affleck would direct the project, has been circling for about a year now. But this announcement is the first official confirmation. 

Reactions to Batman V Superman have been mixed. But Affleck was universally praised for his debut as the Caped Crusader.

  
No further details were given on the production, but it’s thought that a new Batman could be one of the two as-yet untitled DC movies already given a release date — if so, Batfleck could be back in the cowl on either October 5th, 2018, or November 1st, 2019. Personally, I think Batman will be 2018, with Suicide Squad 2 in 2019. 

Zack Snyder explains Robin’s death 

I know I’m going against the grain here, but I actually enjoyed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It was a deeply flawed movie, but it wasn’t as bad as people want it to be.  

If you have seen the movie, then you know that there are glimpse into the DCU. One of those involves a Robin suit, in a glass display case with “HAHAHA The Joke’s On You Batman” graffitied on it.

Batman V Superman director Zack Snyder sat down with IGN, to explain that scene:

“In my mind, it was that Robin had died 10 years earlier, during some run-in with a young Joker, so there was a fun backstory there to play with. I felt like the whole idea was that there had been loss and there had been sacrifice. In a weird way, he had sacrificed everything to be Batman. He doesn’t really have a life outside the cave. I thought that including Robin, a dead Robin, was helping us understand that he’s been on quite a little journey.”

Ben Affleck has already co-written a Batman script

Last year, we heard a rumour that Ben Affleck was going to co-write a solo Batman film with legendary DC writer, Geoff Johns. Well, today the Hollywood Reporter has reported that the dynamic duo has completed the first draft and have submitted it to Warner Bros.

THR spoke to Patrick Whitesell (Affleck’s agent) who revealed the following information:

“He’s [Ben Affleck] contracted to do at least Justice League One and Two, so at least three times wearing the cape. There’s a script that he’s written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that’s out there as an option.”

It’s no secret that Batman V Superman has received mixed reviews, but Affleck’s Batman has been hailed as “the best Batman we’ve ever seen”. It remains to be seen exactly when Warner Bros. will fit a solo Batman film into their already packed release schedule, but I imagine they’ll find room for it.

Vlog 2:Batman V Superman press screening

I was lucky enough to attend the Batman V Superman press screening last night. Is it as bad as the critics would have you believe? Check out the video below to find out.

It features an appearance from Alex Zane, Zack Snyder, and the man of steel himself-Henry Cavill.

Ben Affleck confronts fans who say Superman is better

Last week, we saw Henry Cavill asked kids if they prefer Batman or Superman, this week Ben Affleck hid inside the batmobile during a tour of the warner bros studio and confronted fans who say Superman is better than Batman.

The video made me laugh and, it’s all to raise awareness for a good cause. Find out more information here.

Henry Cavill asks kids if they prefer Batman or Superman

“Who is better Batman or Superman?” That’s a question that comic book geeks have been asking for well over seventy years. We’ve seen them team up many times in comic form, but in just a few short weeks we will see the two icons battle it out on the big screen in, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Jesse Eisenberg have partnered with Omaze, to give fans the chance to enter in the “Ultimate Batman v. Superman Experience“.

In participation with Durrell wildlife park, Cavill interviewed a bunch of kids, and asked them who they prefer.

 

Rumour:Affleck to star in Batman trilogy 

This is only a rumour at the moment, but I would be very surprised if it isn’t true. 

According to den of geek, WB want Ben Affleck to star in a trilogy of Batman films. 

Den of geeks sources claim that at a recent cast and crew screening of Batman V Superman:Dawn of justice, which included several of the WB’s top suits, the film received a standing ovation. 

The suits are apparently so impressed with Affleck’s portrayal, that they want to lock him into a “golden deal” that would see him playing the capes crusader for the next ten years.
