Robert Pattinson is the next in line of Batman actors, I’m no fan of him like most but I’ll give him a chance…

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.

“Black Panther” doesn’t deserve the hype, “Aquaman” does!!!

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.

Joaquin Phoenix will play the Joker in the Joker’s first standalone live-action film…

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 is finally getting his own solo film by Warner Bros./DC… interesting…

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.

Full “Justice League” trailer is finally out and it looks freakin’ awesome! Hell yeah!!!

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.

Ever since “Suicide Squad” and “Batman: Arkham Knight” game, Harley Quinn has become very popular…

Harley Quinn statue at FYE.

A post shared by Kev Brock (@kevbrockmusic) on

These days everywhere you go at the mall or your local comic book store, you’re gonna see Harley Quinn everywhere. There are Harley Quinn statues (or life size replicas, whatever you want to call them), t-shirts, posters, action figures, etc. They’re selling those all over the place. I take it that Harley Quinn has all of a sudden become very popular. There are men that like the character but the character is mostly popular with women. Have you noticed that more and more women have been liking the Harley Quinn character? She was the Joker’s girlfriend from the comics. This character is getting so popular for whatever reason.

So for this reason alone, I think she’s definitely gonna get her own spinoff series for film and possibly a TV show even. The pic above I took myself while at the mall doing my Christmas shopping. It’s nice to see Harley Quinn finally get some recognition ’cause she is an interesting character. Why is it that a lot of women love her so much? Is it because Harley relates to women? Maybe women like her ’cause they admire the fact that Harley is not afraid to look like how she wants and women out there feel the same. You know how Harley is kind of crazy? Well a lot of women out there are crazy too so this character can relate. Harley relates to women in a lot of ways.

Wonder Woman and Catwoman should watch out ’cause I think very soon, Harley Quinn is gonna be bigger than them. Harley could take their spotlight pretty quick. I haven’t seen “Suicide Squad” but plan on getting around to it.

It is interesting how this Harley character is getting popular very fast. She is an interesting character. I like her a lot myself.

Just finished “Gotham – Season 1” last night on Netflix… such an awesome show!!!

I’m a really huge Batman fan. Just love the characters and the stories. Even though I’m not much of a comic book reader, I just watch all the Batman movies… play the Batman video games and read a few graphic novels. I also love the original Batman TV series with Adam West and Burt Ward. I should read more Batman comics, though and I want to. It’s just that comics are hard to collect these days. I just read the graphic novels when I can. I love Batman ’cause I just love how he’s one of the very few superheroes with no superpowers.

I finished the new Batman TV show on FOX called, “Gotham” which focus’s on the earlier days of Batman… the history of it. It’s kind of like a prequel. It shows the build up of all the characters from the comics. It will show the life of Bruce Wayne before he became the Batman. The show also shows the buildup of all the villains like the Riddler, Penguin, the Joker, Poison Ivy, Harvey Dent/Two Face, Scarecrow, Catwoman, etc. All the Batman characters from the comics are a part of this show except for Fish Mooney (who is played by Jada Pinkett Smith) which is an exclusive character for the show. This show is about the lives of the villains before they became what they became so those characters are not in full costume yet. The Batman is not a part of this show yet ’cause Bruce Wayne is just a kid right now.

This show is pretty similar to “Smallville”, the show about the life of Superman but “Gotham” is about the life of Batman.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3749900/

Ya know, I hate Jada Pinkett Smith like most people. I can’t stand the Smith family but I’m not afraid to admit that Jada’s character as Fish Mooney is entertaining as hell to watch. Jada as Fish Mooney is really enjoyable to watch… I won’t deny it. Plus, Jada is pretty hot and sexy as that character. That’s some damn good acting, Jada, great job and I really mean that.

I also love the actors who plays Edward Nygma (who later becomes the Riddler) and Oswald Cobblepot (who later becomes the Penguin)… the actors who plays those two characters are really good actors as well. If Ben Affleck ever decides to have the Riddler or the Penguin for his solo Batman film he should get the actors from the “Gotham” TV show that played those two characters. Would be cool.

My only complaint about this show is that I’m not that crazy about the choice of the young Jim Gordon… I don’t think Ben McKenzie is that great of an actor but everyone else in this show are great though.

When will we ever see all the villains in their full costumes? I would predict in the final season whenever that will be, that will be the season when the Batman will finally appear. So when the young Bruce Wayne is all grown up, they will have to find an older actor to play the new Batman for the show.

“Gotham” is surprisingly a great show. I’m loving it so far. I finished Season 1 last night and will start season 2 next week. Season 3 is currently being played on FOX cable TV but I’ll wait for Season 3 to get on Netflix. So glad this show is on Netflix. If you’re a Batman fan too, it’s worth checking out.
