Yes, Ben Affleck is a die-hard liberal but he’s still a very talented man and I’ve admired his work through the years in his films. I love him as Batman when he did “B vs. S: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League”, I thought he did surprisingly fucking awesome. I thought he made a great Batman and he was fantastic.
Yeah, yeah, yeah… Affleck’s Batman got mixed reviews. Many hated him as Batman but at the same time there are also many fans out there who thought he was great. I also thought he played Bruce Wayne extremely well too when he didn’t have the batsuit on.
Originally, Ben was going to continue to play Batman and Warner Bros. wanted him to write and direct “The Batman” but he pulled out and the project went to Matt Reeves instead.
Ben’s first explanation of dropping out was that he couldn’t come up with a good version of the film even if he worked with a good screenwriter and said he couldn’t “crack it”. Next thing you know Ben admits the film could make him go back to being an alcoholic again.
I appreciate Ben trying to be honest with himself and trying to stay humble but I don’t think he realizes that a lot of people loved him as Batman and fans want him to keep playing that iconic character.
I don’t think Ben knows that he’s loved by many Batman and DC fans. I know Ben’s been going through a lot of problems and struggles in life but he needs to stop being so down about himself ’cause that’s not healthy.
Wish he would wake up and keep making Batman movies for the fans. I think he should have stayed on for “The Batman”. I think he would have made it a great film.
What’s gonna happen with “Justice League”??? I don’t think there’s gonna be a “Justice League 2” now that WB’s wants nothing to do with Superman and Ben wants nothing to do with Batman anymore. All of this is really sad.
Even though Ben is a die-hard leftist politically, I still wish him well ’cause he is a talented man. He made some good movies over the years.
This just dropped out of nowhere today. Dropped by Matt Reeves himself on his twitter account and the internet was already all over it. It quickly went viral.
This is just a camera test… probably just Robert Pattinson in the batsuit before the movie begins filming, just trying things out and testing it, ya know? Robert in the batsuit in a dark room with red light. Looks like Pattinson is the Dark Knight for this one ’cause the suit is made of armor it looks like.
I just love when Pattinson looks down, you can’t really see his mouth and eyes yet but when he slowly looks up, you start to his mouth and eyes. Omg, his look through the cowl looks freakin’ awesome and very intense! I can now see why Matt Reeves and the crew badly wanted Pattinson ’cause I can see them getting blown away when they first saw Robert in the batsuit. Pattinson’s mouth and eyes looks fantastic through that cowl, though. I love that look.
This video doesn’t show the whole costume just his upper body and they won’t let you show his ears yet either. I’m sure they’ll give us another first look at his full costume real soon. What about Batman’s utility belt? I’m sure he’s gonna be wearing one, of course with all kinds of cool bat-toys… but the utility belt will not only have his weapons, it will also have all kinds of tools giving you a hint that he would be a detective too.
Looking great so far and I’m already impressed!
Unfortunately, though, we’ll have to wait until the summer of 2021 for us to see it, though but they’ll keep giving more and more first looks from the film ’cause it’s filming right now. They’ll give us pictures of Catwoman, The Riddler and the Penguin. They’ll give us pics of the Batmobile, Wayne Manor (Bruce’s home) and the Batcave.
I’m already feeling that this movie could be a huge box office smash. Could end up being the biggest Batman movie ever. Hope Robert is ready for this.
So it’s looking like that Robert Pattinson the star of the “Twilight” movies which is he most famous for is gonna be the next Batman. That means Pattinson is gonna be added to the growing list of Batman actors for the big screen: Michael Keaton, George Clooney, Val Kilmer, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck and looks like Robert Pattinson is gonna be added to the list.
Robert Pattinson to Play ‘The Batman’ for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. (EXCLUSIVE)
I’m no fan of his like most people but I’m not gonna be so quick to judge and I’m gonna give him a chance first. We haven’t even seen what he looks like in the batsuit and cowl yet. We will soon, though. I think the goal for the new Batman reboot is that they wanted a younger Batman. The Batman movies over the years focused on an older Batman who’s in his 40’s and up. They wanted someone much younger so I guess they found that Pattinson is their guy.
What do you think? Do you think Pattinson has what it takes to play the next Bruce Wayne/Batman? I don’t know. He might do a good job and he might not. We shouldn’t be so quick to negatively judge him. Why don’t people wait until we see footage from the film first instead of criticizing him ’cause of his “Twilight” fame?
Never know… Pattinson becoming the next Batman could end up being fucking awesome. We’ll have to wait and see.
So, I just saw DC’s superhero film “Aquaman” in the theater earlier today and wow. I was freakin’ blown away! Usually movies full of CGI are never my thing ’cause movies like that feel a bit too cartoonish for me but I can’t help but love “Aquaman”. I didn’t mind the CGI in “Aquaman” ’cause it worked for a movie like “Aquaman”.
I thought James Wan did an impressive job directing his first superhero film. This comes as a big surprise ’cause James Wan is mostly known as a horror film director. He did mostly horror films in his career but he’s starting to do action films more. He did an action film back in 2007 called “Death Sentence” which starred Kevin Bacon in the leading role so James is capable of doing some action movies and remember James directed Fast and the Furious 7 too.
This movie “Aquaman” was entertaining as hell all the way through, I wasn’t bored one bit. The film has an all star cast but I was most impressed with Jason Momoa and Dolph Lundgren, of course. Those two guys helped made the movie watchable. All the action scenes were a blast to watch and since James Wan is mostly known as a horror director, the film did had some horror elements here and there.
I was never a fan of the Aquaman character much but this movie makes me want to start reading Aquaman comics right now and I would like to start buying some soon. It’s a very cool character actually and Jason Momoa makes you want to like the character when you haven’t in the past.
I thought “Aquaman” was the best superhero of the year. Fuck “Black Panther”, man. “Aquaman” was 10x’s way better than “Black Panther”. When I was watching “Aquaman”, I felt like it was almost Star Wars underwater and that’s what it was pretty much. “Aquaman” was so impressive. People maybe getting sick and tired of superheroes movies yes but go see “Aquaman”. It’ll be a superhero movie worth seeing, trust me. I fucking loved it and definitely buying the BluRay when it comes out.
This is interesting. Joaquin Phoenix looks like he will be playing the Joker in the first ever Joker live-action movie which will be co-written and directed by Todd Phillips. Joaquin is not confirmed for the role yet but he is the top choice to play the Joker and he has agreed to the role. It will probably happen.
The idea for the movie that it will take place in the 80’s and it will be more of a gritty crime-drama than a typical superhero film.
Joaquin Phoenix in Talks to Play the Joker in Todd Phillips’ Standalone Movie (EXCLUSIVE)
I’m sure many are thinking Joaquin Phoenix is a terrible choice but honestly, I think he’s going to do a great job and knock it out of the park. Joaquin is a terrific actor… he’s one of my favorites actually. He has done so many phenomenal movies. Joaquin can play anything that throws at him.
I think Joaquin will play the Joker quite well… however, the question you all have to ask is… will Joaquin be able to do the Joker laugh? Joaquin will have to do that laugh for that movie and I think Joaquin will learn how and practice to get it right. I think Joaquin will do the Joker laugh quite well.
It would be cool if Mark Hamill would play a live-action Joker but it will never happen ’cause Hamill is 66 years old now. He’s too old to play the Joker in a live-action set. I may not like Hamill being anti-Trump but I still think he does a good job voicing the Joker, though, no doubt.
I’m glad Joker is finally getting his own movie too and hopefully Harley Quinn will be in it and she probably will be. Write Harley Quinn in the movie and I’m sure even more people would see it ’cause Harley Quinn is a very popular character.
It’s going to be interesting to see what Joaquin is going to look like in Joker make-up and in full costume. This is gonna be a Joker standalone film and origin story. I don’t think Batman will be in it at all, although, it’s possible that Batman will get mentioned in it.
The Joker who is obviously the most famous Batman villain is finally getting his own solo film brought to you by Warner Bros./DC. Todd Phillips the director of “The Hangover”trilogy is set to direct the solo Joker film.
The Joker has been played by many different actors over the years through animated movies and live-action movies. Most notably, the Joker has been played by Cesar Romero from the old TV show, Jack Nicholson in the 1989 “Batman” film by Tim Burton, Heath Ledger in 2008’s “The Dark Knight” and Mark Hamill voiced the character through animated films and video games.
As far as the new Joker goes, it makes a whole lot of sense to have a comedy director make the film ’cause the Joker is obviously about making jokes and stuff.
The Joker Origin Story On Deck: Todd Phillips, Scott Silver, Martin Scorsese Aboard WB/DC Film
Who’s gonna be the new Joker? I hope they stay away from Jared Leto ’cause I never liked him as the Joker. They probably won’t pick any of the previous Jokers ’cause all the previous ones would be too old. Since this is an “origin” story, they’ll probably find someone young. Will they pick a big name actor or a total unknown? They’re probably gonna go for a big name, I bet. Will Harley Quinn be involved in the solo Joker movie? Probably. That Harley Quinn character is very popular and she’s probably gonna be featured in other films a lot more often. The Joker and Harley were important together so of course, she’s gonna be a part of the story for sure, no doubt.
I’m all for a solo Joker movie just as long as they don’t try to rip off Nicholson or Ledger.
Looking forward to seeing how this film is gonna go, though.
While San Diego Comic Con is underway this weekend, WB’s decided to drop the “Justice League” trailer today. So here it is, the full trailer for “Justice League”.
I’m pretty impressed with it really. I really liked “Man of Steel”, “Wonder Woman” and “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice”. I thought all three were great flicks! All three of those films were leading up to the “Justice League” film. While all the advertisements omitted Superman, I believe they finally included him in this trailer above. The trailer teases Superman’s return. I believe that’s who Alfred was talking to when he was talking to a character “off-screen”… that was Clark Kent/Superman who Alfred was talking to; that was Henry Cavill’s voice, indeed.
So when are we actually going to see Superman in action in the film? Probably not until the very end of the movie I would say. Throughout the movie, they would keep teasing that Superman is alive and then we’ll see him at the end. Superman will join the Justice League group at the end of the movie. It’s not really a “spoiler” ’cause everybody probably knows that’s what’s going to happen anyways.
Anyhow, I’m pretty stoked for the movie. This is one movie that I’m most anticipated for this year other than “Star Wars: Episode 8”, “Stephen King’s The Dark Tower”, “IT” and “Jigsaw” (Saw 8).
Can’t wait for “Justice League”. Definitely going to see this one.
