“The Batman” sequel greenlighted w/ Matt Reeves returning to direct and Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz returning to star…

Well it was announced that “The Batman 2” has been officially greenlighted. Matt Reeves has been signed to return to direct and I’m sure he’ll help write the screenplay as well. Robert Pattinson is of course set to reprise his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Zoe Kravitz is set to return as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.

I’m sure other characters and actors from the first Batman movie will be returning as well. Yes, of course, I definitely think Colin Farrell will return as the Penguin once again. I’m sure Paul Dano will come back as Riddler probably. Andy Serkis as Alfred, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon… they all will come back except for John Turturro as Carmine Falcone… he’s the only character that can’t come back but don’t want to give spoilers as to what happened to him.

What will the title be for the sequel? Will they just simply title it “The Batman 2”??? Or will they end up giving it a subtitle? I think they should give it a subtitle and not give it a number.

Now lets talk about some potential storylines and possible villains. I would like them to do something that they’ve never done before. They shouldn’t repeat storylines from the earlier Batman movies. For example, it be interesting if “The Batman 2” would do their own version of League of Assassins storyline like with Ra’s Al Ghul, Talia and the Lazarus Pit and all that stuff but that was already done in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy.

“The Batman 2” will probably start where the first one will leave off so obviously the Riddler and Penguin will return and I’m sure new villains will start appearing too. We could probably get Harvey Dent/Two Face again but the Two/Face character was already done in earlier movies, a couple of times actually. Maybe a Matt Reeves version of Two Face would be cooler and “scarier”, maybe he should give it a go, I don’t know.

I think the Joker should return, though… maybe not as a leading villain but as a smaller role or maybe as another cameo. I think they would bring back Barry Keoghan as the Joker again too but in what way? We’ll see.

There are plenty of other Batman villains from the comics and graphic novels that haven’t been used yet for the big screen, though…. villains like Clayface, Killer Croc, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Blackmask, Hush, Dr. Hugo Strange, The Court of Owls, etc.

As far as good guy characters, I’m sure we’ll get new names of those too…. maybe a new Robin will get introduced in the next one. Who knows. Maybe other Batman allies could introduced in the next movie like Barbara Gordon slowly becoming the Batgirl would be cool and maybe bringing in Azrael would be kind of cool too.

If they were to do a new Robin then it should be someone like Damien and that way they could finally introduce Nightwing. Imagine Matt Reeves doing a Nightwing character?

If they were to do the Court of Owls story then the Joker may have to be brought back ’cause he was an important part of that story. I read the graphic novel.

“The Batman 2” will probably follow the same format as the first one. It’ll be a detective story that will have the feeling of a gangster movie. I think it’ll be a whole new trilogy.

We’ll see what the story and the villains will be. I bet the next one will probably be about Mr. Freeze ’cause Matt Reeves already said he liked the Mr. Freeze story so don’t be surprised they could do Freeze again and I’ll have to say a Reeves version of Freeze would be awesome. It could end up being the Court of Owls instead, though. We’ll see.

They haven’t started the script yet but I’m sure Matt and Robert are already talking about ideas. I can’t wait for “The Batman 2” as I fucking LOVED the first one.


Matt Reeves drops this deleted scene of “The Batman” of Batman meeting the Joker in Arkham Asylum out of nowhere…

Yesterday, Matt Reeves dropped that deleted scene in the video above. In it, shows Batman meeting the Joker at Arkham Asylum.

I read an interview with Matt Reeves that even though he liked that scene very much, it couldn’t be in the movie for whatever reason. Matt reveals that there is another deleted Joker scene before this one that he plans on releasing soon.

Will the Joker become the main villain for Batman 2 or 3? As of this point, Matt is not sure. He doesn’t know yet so keep in mind that’s not a “yes” or a “no” so that also means “never say never”.

The Joker scenes didn’t really need to be in the movie ’cause there was an already established relationship between the Batman and the Joker… that means, the two already knew each other long before this movie.

In my opinion, I think Keoghan’s Joker is really cool, though. I think it’s more frightening than the earlier Joker’s in the past.

I agree that Joker has been over done but Matt shouldn’t ignore Joker completely though. Ya know what would be cool? Since these movies were meant to be a new introduction of the Rogues Gallery villains, how about having Keoghan’s Joker team up with the other villains Catwoman, Penguin and Riddler to try and destroy Batman and Gotham altogether. We haven’t had a Batman movie like that yet where all the villains team up kind of like in the old 1966 Batman show. Maybe that’s where this new Batman trilogy is kind of going… have all the villains team up and go against Batman.

People are tired of the Joker but that character is an important foe of Batman. That’s why he’s all over the place. Batman wouldn’t have become so iconic if it wasn’t for the Joker, think about it right? Joker has been all over the comics and graphic novels for decades.

I’m loving Matt’s take on the Batman and there’s probably gonna be a 2 and 3. I’m the biggest Batman superfan you’ll ever see. Love the character and the stories so much. My Batman graphic novel collection is starting to get pretty big too (I have about 23 Batman graphic novels on my bookshelf) and I have some Batman comics as well.


Finally saw “The Batman” yesterday afternoon… it was freakin’ awesome! Best Batman movie for sure!

So I finally got around to seeing “The Batman” in theater yesterday afternoon and my god, I was totally speechless throughout the whole film and my eyes were glued to the screen throughout those 3 hours. The film really was that dark and “intense” like Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson themselves were trying to tell us. That is how a Batman story is supposed to be told, they’re supposed to be dark and intense.

Throughout the first 9 Batman films… the Burton/Schumacher series, The Christopher Nolan/Dark Knight trilogy and the two Ben Affleck Batman movies “B vs. S: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League”… they were all action movies about Batman trying to save Gotham and trying to save himself from the villains that are obsessed at wanting to kill him.

“The Batman” by Matt Reeves and starring Robert Pattinson is a totally different film than all those. This film was focused on “story” mostly which was refreshing. The past Batman films were great but Batman going around trying to save everyone and everything was getting old. This one is more of a detective story and a “mystery”. That is one thing the Batman movies were missing, the “detective” story parts. In the Batman graphic novels and comics, a lot of them were detective stories… just Batman trying to solve crimes just like in the 1966 show with Adam West and those “Arkham” video games, ya know? When will Batman the detective ever happen on the big screen? Well thanks to Matt Reeves, it finally happened.

This film is like “neo noir”… kind of like a crossover of gangster movies and horror films. This film is like a mixture of Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and David Fincher rolled into one. When you watch this film, you would feel like those three guys directed this film. That’s what I felt like almost.

You all probably wanna know my thoughts on Robert Pattinson as Batman well, I was pretty impressed with him, honestly. I felt Pattinson was the true Batman than all the past ones, seriously. I felt like this was the Batman from the graphic novels and comics. I really liked Pattinson’s Batman voice too. I think they got the Batman voice right this time.

The rest of the cast did real great too, though. I was also impressed with the guy that played the Riddler, Paul Dano made a brilliant Riddler. This is a different Riddler than the comics and graphic novels we’ve seen but there are still similarities. The costume is different ’cause it’s just Matt’s vision but the green is still there, the question mark is still there, the glasses are still there and the laugh is still there but you won’t see Riddler wearing that green hat and walking around with a staff with a question mark on the top of it. The jokes and the riddles are still there too.

This is the Batman I want to see, Batman going around trying to solve all the Riddler’s riddles just like in the 1966 Batman TV show and in the comics.

I thought everybody in the movie did great… Andy Serkis the new Alfred, Zoe Kravitz as Selina/Catwoman, John Turturro kills it like he always does and I was real impressed with Colin Farrell as the new Penguin. Colin is totally unrecognizable as that character which is amazing.

I bet Matt was inspired by horror films too ’cause a lot of scenes in this movie were very dark, scary and disturbing. Crazy. Of course, this film had violent action scenes too. This film had to have some action in it ’cause what’s the point of making a Batman movie when he’s not gonna be fighting? This film had some pretty great action scenes and good fighting sequences.

This film was definitely a masterpiece. I’m definitely gonna buy the BluRay when it comes out. I think I’m gonna buy the soundtrack ’cause I really liked the score in the movie too.

I was really impressed and blown away with “The Batman”. I’ll give it a 9/10 and I’m already looking forward to the sequel now. Definitely worth seeing.


Ben Affleck’s take on “The Batman” would have been an all out action film and very James Bond-esque…

During an interview director Matt Reeves who just helmed “The Batman” which is still scheduled for a March 4th release date in theaters described a little bit of what Ben Affleck’s take on “The Batman” would have been like. Yes, Ben already wrote his script for “The Batman” and handed it to Warner Bros. Since Ben stepped out of directing and acting, Matt Reeves took over the job. Warner Bros. handed Ben’s script of “The Batman” to Matt and Matt decided that he didn’t like it at all.

Matt’s biggest complaint about Ben’s script that it would have been an all out action movie and it was too James Bond-esque and that’s what Matt didn’t want at all. Matt also felt that Ben’s script was very much like DCEU that had other characters from the other films and other comic book stories. Matt didn’t want that either.

Initially WB’s wanted Matt to direct Ben’s script but Matt says “No”, turned down the script and Matt made “The Batman” his own movie instead.


While Matt Reeves take on “the Batman” looks amazing so far, I honestly wanted to see Ben’s take on it. Ben making a Batman movie an all-out action movie would have been awesome.

Ben does have action movie experience believe it or not. Ben has done movies in every genre from drama, action, comedy, thriller and he even done horror a little bit, I think. For action movies Ben starred in action flicks like “The Accountant”, “Reindeer Games”, “Triple Frontier”, “Sum of all Fears” and of course his most popular “The Town” (in which he directed himself). I thought “The Town” was definitely one of his best films anyways. I would think Ben is definitely capable of making a violent Batman flick. I kind of wish Ben hung on but oh well. Ben is not done playing Batman yet as he is going to play the character once more in the upcoming “Flash” movie and that’s it. Ben is moving on and no longer wanting anything to do with Batman after that.

Matt didn’t say but I wonder who the villains would have been in Ben’s version of “The Batman”? It probably wouldn’t have been The Joker but I’m sure Ben picked other villains. I think in the past, Ben teased in an interview that Deathstroke was the main villain in his version so Deathstroke was probably it. Seeing Deathstroke would have been badass.

Anyhow, I’m definitely looking forward to the Matt Reeves “Batman” movie in March and I’ll make sure I’ll be there for that one. I think it looks awesome so far. I love Batman. I’m the biggest Batman superfan you’ll ever see. You should see my Batman collection at home. I have many Batman graphic novels, some Batman comics, many Batman movies and animated stuff on BluRay. Only thing I don’t have yet is the 1966 Batman TV show BluRay set and the Burton/Schumacher movies of Batman but I’m gonna getting around to getting those soon to complete my collection.


“The Batman” teaser is finally here and it looks amazing, I’m so there for this one…

When Robert Pattinson was announced that he was going to be the next Batman for the upcoming “The Batman” directed by Matt Reeves, it got mixed reactions. Some love it and some hate it as Pattinson being the next Batman. I’m one of those that always believed that Pattinson could pull it off and I always believed in him in that role. So many trashed Matt Reeves and “The Batman” ’cause of Pattinson’s history with the Twilight movies. So far, I’m seeing the Pattinson critics having a change of heart after the teaser finally came out and many critics not saying anything as well.

I think the first teaser is impressive and gave me goosebumps. Looks like this movie is gonna be the beginnings of Catwoman, The Penguin and the Riddler ’cause as you can see those characters look different and they aren’t those iconic villains… “yet”. Just an origin story for them, not an origin story for Batman which has already been done so many times.

The new Batman looks intense though and looks 10x’s more violent than the previous Batmans we’ve had in the past. Batman, a lot more tougher and more angry.

My question is, no Joker at all in this movie? I wouldn’t rule that out… probably no Joker but don’t be surprised if you’ll see or hear a Joker reference or more. If there is going to be a sequel to this movie and probably will be depending how this movie does in the box office, I’m sure they will feature more and different villains.

I’m so glad this movie “The Batman” is gonna be a detective story finally. All the previous Batman films we had were “action” movies. They weren’t detective stories. We need a detective story where fans can figure things out ourselves and we need a Batman movie where we can really think. A mystery “whodunit” story is what’s missing and we’re finally getting that.

Can’t wait and I’m definitely seeing this film when it comes out.


Robert Pattinson as the Batman in cowl and suit revealed… freakin’ awesome so far…

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.


Matt Reeves “The Batman” and starring Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz sounds more intriguing the more I hear about it!!!

Some of you probably wanna know my thoughts about Matt Reeves “The Batman” starring Robert Pattinson and new cast member Zoe Kravitz who just got signed to play the new Selina Kyle/Catwoman. I’m a die-hard Batman fan. I love the big screen movies, love the comics and I love the animated series and animated films as well. I just love anything Batman ’cause I just love the character and the stories.

From what I’m hearing about Matt Reeves “The Batman”…. oh man, it sounds more intriguing the more I hear about it. The thing with “The Batman” they are planning is that it’s not going to be a typical origin story that we’ve already seen so many times. I’ve read this movie is going to be set in the 90’s and will focus on a much younger Bruce Wayne/Batman and in my opinion, I think Robert Pattinson is a great choice. A lot of people are skeptical of the idea since Pattinson’s history with the Twilight films but I think he will make a great Batman. Some maybe skeptical now but wait until the actual movie comes out and give him a chance. I predict Pattinson is gonna knock that role out of the park and kill it! We still haven’t seen what Pattinson is gonna look like in the bat cowl but I’m sure they’re gonna give us our first look at the new Batman soon.

I’m also hearing stuff about that “The Batman” movie is gonna focus more on a detective story and that’s what’s got me sold on it completely. That’s one thing that Batman has been missing for years… the detective part of things which is what Batman is supposed to be… a detective. All those live action Batman movies over the years… the Tim Burton films, the Schumacher films, the Christopher Nolan trilogy and the Zack Snyder Batman… they are all big action flicks and Batman was a crime fighter in all those movies, not the detective.

In the comics and graphic novels, Batman was a detective in most of ’em. Batman was also a detective in those Arkham video games by Rock Steady. I love the detective stories in Batman and it’s finally time to bring those to the big screen and I applaud Matt Reeves for that. In Matt Reeves “The Batman”, I’m sure  there will be some violence and action scenes but I hear it’s going to mostly focus on story.

I also hear the film is going to feature more than one villain and it’s probably gonna feature everybody. Penguin and the Riddler hasn’t been casted yet but if they’re going to use those characters for the film, I’d suggest they get Robin Lord Taylor for Penguin and Cory Michael Smith for The Riddler… actors who played those characters from the “Gotham” TV show on FOX. Robin Taylor as the Penguin and Cory Smith as The Riddler… oh god, those guys played those characters so well. They made a perfect Penguin and Riddler and I hope Matt Reeves will get those guys for “The Batman”. I doubt it but ya never know. I love the “Gotham” TV show on FOX as I’ve been watching it on Netflix a lot and I’ve been watching Season 4. Only 5 seasons of that show and trying to catch up to the very end of the show.

Back to “The Batman” being a detective story, like I said I love the idea and this movie needs to be a who-dun-it kind of thing. Will it be a murder mystery? Probably.

I wonder who’s going to play the rest of the characters??? They still need to cast a new Alfred Pennyworth, Lucius Fox and they need to cast Harvey Dent if they’re going to use him.

As far as other villains go…. I hope they use Dr. Hugo Strange, Killer Croc, Pyg, Hush, Two Face (Harvey Dent), Ra’s Al Ghul and Deadshot. This film will try to fit all the villains in one film. That’s the goal I think?

This film is looking to be like a trilogy of some sorts so it’s not gonna be a one-off. If this film turns out be a hit then there will probably be more.

Another question you have to ask is will I go see “The Joker” movie with Joaquin Phoenix? I’m hoping to see it and I’m gonna try to see it before it stops playing. I think it’s gonna be in the theater for a long while since it’s a box office hit. I do want to see it, though and it looks good.


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.


Matt Reeves “The Batman”… is it gonna be old-school 1940’s Batman??? If so interesting…

While DC/Warner Bros. continues to ignore Superman, they haven’t ignored our other iconic superhero in the DC world… and that is Batman. DC/Warner Bros. studios is in the works of a new Batman movie. It’s going to be a whole new reboot, I guess. It’ll have nothing to do with any of the past Batman films.

Through the press, there are rumors that this film could be set in the 90’s but from the looks of things,  it doesn’t look  like it’s heading that way to me. In this image while celebrating 80 years of Batman, Matt Reeves revealed a photo of what it looks like the first comic when Batman made his debut. In the background which is blurred out, I’m pretty sure it’s the script for the movie. On the cover of the script, you see the old Batman logo from the 1940’s comics.

So now I’m thinking is this movie gonna be taking place in the 1940’s? Are we gonna get the old school Batman? Ya know, the blue and black Batman with the yellow belt. If the old-school Batman is coming to the big screen then that’ll be freakin’ cool and it’ll work. I think the blue and black Batman should return ’cause we had the Dark Knight Batman for many years and I feel we’ve finally had enough of that. We’ve had the Dark Knight Batman through the Tim Burton, Joel Schumacher, Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder films. Now it’s finally time for something different.

If the 1940’s Batman is what they’re going for then that would be some interesting film making and I think Matt Reeves could pull it off. They said it would take place in a different era and the 1940’s could be it. This film would be nothing like the Adam West and Burt Ward TV series ’cause Reeves Batman would take place years before then. It’ll be an interesting take for sure and I’m all for this.

I’m a huge Batman fan and I’m hoping Reeves “The Batman” is gonna be a great one and hope it won’t suck.


Netflix Pick (PS3): Let Me In

For my Saturday movie last night, I have finally decided to see the horror flick, “Let Me In”, written and directed by Matt Reeves.

I know a lot of people are fed up with shit vampire films for the last several years. Finally, someone makes an excellent vampire film! Man, was I so impressed with this film or what? Yes I was, I was blown away and at the edge of my seat throughout the entire film.

The film stars, Kodi Smit-McPhie and Chloe Grace Morets, both who are child actors. The film is set in the 1980’s and it tells the story of a young 12 year old boy named Owen (Smith-McPhie) who develops a friendship with a girl named, Abby (Grace Morets). The only thing though, that Owen doesn’t know that Abby is a vampire. Abby’s father is a murderous madman, who would kill people for blood for Abby to feed on. Vampire’s need blood to survive and Abby’s father would do whatever it takes to keep her alive.

Owen is being bullied by three other kids in school, and Abby gives him the advice that he needs to fight back. While Owen is a human boy and not a vampire, Abby vows not to drink blood from him because they were in love with each other. The movie is also a love story.

Enough with the plot. I thought this was the best vampire film in a long time, it was perfect. Just the way a vampire story needed to be told. This is not Stephanie Meyer’s “Twilight”, Matt Reeve’s “Let Me In” is a totally different story. It’s much darker, more violent and scarier. Yes, “Let Me In” even kind of creeped me out in some scenes. There is some gore, of course. The movie was unpredictable.

I’m glad I finally saw the movie, so I think I’m going to buy this movie on Blu Ray. I know you’re probably tired of vampire flicks, but I think you’ll like this one. Check it out.
