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.

Mel Gibson set to direct and co-write “The Wild Bunch” remake… will Mel star in the film as well???

Well this is interesting. Warner Bros. has got “The Wild Bunch” remake in the works and they just signed Mel Gibson to direct and co-write the film. The question is will Mel star in the film as well? That is not yet known but I’m sure we’ll know pretty soon. Who’s gonna play the leading character of the film, Pike Bishop? I think none other than Mel Gibson himself should play that character ’cause Pike does remind me of Mel. The Pike role would fit Mel perfectly so don’t be surprised if Mel does decide to take on the role. Mel did direct and star in two films in the past which were “The Man Without a Face” and “Braveheart” (both excellent movies, by the way). Mel directed “Passion of the Christ”, “Apocalypto” and “Hacksaw Ridge” but didn’t star in those movies.

Currently Mel is at work on “The Passion” sequel and he’s going to get right to work on “The Wild Bunch” after that.

If Mel decides not to star in “The Wild Bunch” remake at all then I’m sure he’ll get someone else to play Pike and it will be interesting to see who he’s going to choose.

I’ve seen “The Wild Bunch” movie like once and it’s definitely one of the greatest Western films in the history of cinema. It was probably the most violent Western movie I’ve ever seen and Mel’s version would probably be even more violent. You know how violent and dark Mel Gibson directed movies can be.

Since “The Wild Bunch” remake is by Warner Bros., I am predicting we have a huge hit in our hands here. People will pack up the theaters for this one for sure, I bet. I’m sure Mel will choose a great cast for the other Wild Bunch gang members too.

I don’t like Hollywood remaking classics but I’m actually all for this one and I’m sure Mel can pull it off nicely. Mel seems to be a huge fan of Western stories so I’m sure he’ll do a good job. Remember, Mel starred in a Western movie once… remember the movie, “Maverick” released in 1994?

Kevin Smith weighs in on DC/Warner Bros. no longer making Superman movies to concentrate on other superhero films… he says it’s a mistake and I agree…

Kevin Smith weighs in on his thoughts about DC/Warner Bros. no longer making Superman films to concentrate on other superhero flicks which sparked the rumor that Henry Cavill maybe hanging up the cape for good.

Kevin says what DC Films are doing is a huge mistake. Why? It’s because Superman is the king of all superheroes. Superman was the first superhero ever created… he paved the way for many other superheroes to be created. He also says we’re in an era of comic book movies and he feels Superman shouldn’t be ignored.

I agree with everything he said. Without Superman, we wouldn’t have gotten other DC Superheroes such as Supergirl, Batman, The Flash, Wonderwoman, The Green Lantern, Aquaman, Thor, etc. Marvel comics happened ’cause of Superman too, admit it right? The Superman character popularized comics… that’s a fact.

The Superman character is so famous and legendary, the character shouldn’t be ignored at all. The character’s legacy needs to be kept alive forever so for DC Films/Warner Bros. to neglect Superman for other superhero films is a freakin’ joke.

Superman was a character that was loved by people of all ages. I loved the character ever since I was a child and still love the character now. I was a Superman fanatic all my life. When I was a child, I was obsessed with the Christopher Reeve Superman flicks and still love those movies. When I was a child, I used to watch the George Reeves Superman TV show and used to watch all the Superman cartoons. Of course, I used to read Superman comics when I was a kid too and I just gotten back into reading Superman comics. I just love the character.

Whether or not Henry Cavill is still on for Superman, DC Films still needs to make Superman films either way. Just have a different Superman actor for all I care, just keep making Superman movies. Sure the Henry Cavill Superman films got mixed reviews but they were all still huge money makers. If Henry is out as Superman then just do another reboot… anything. Just don’t ignore Superman, period.

Superman is an important character for all of us and always will be.

Henry Cavill the man himself quick to shoot down quitting Superman rumors on his instagram… looks like he’s still ON as Superman! YES!!!

Today was exciting #Superman

A post shared by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill) on

The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report the news that Henry Cavill was out as Superman and a huge debate sparked on the internet. Lots of rumors and speculation swirling that Henry quit the Superman role.

Well here he is quickly shooting down the rumors in this humorous video. Wearing a Krypton Lifting Team t-shirt and then he holds up a Superman action figure. Well, looks like he’s still on as Superman, y’all so you can all settle down now.

Truthfully, I don’t think Henry Cavill will quit the role ’cause you can tell that he loves playing the character too much. I think he’ll still play Superman for “Justice League 2” and “Man of Steel 2” (if it happens that is). Glad he’s still on myself.

Henry Cavill done playing Superman… did he just quit playing the role? Seems so…

Superman-Henry-Cavill.-Photo-Superman-Wiki-Fandom-e1536767614323.jpg

It looks  like Warner Bros/DC. films are parting ways with actor Henry Cavill who just played Superman for them for three films: “Man of Steel”, “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League”. The split appears to be amicable ’cause the WB’s spokesperson said they and Cavill still have a great relationship together and always will.

Why are they parting ways? Well, WB’s seems to be so heavily focused on other superhero projects by the time they finish with those films, Henry will be too old to be playing Superman. Henry is 35 right now so age is probably what to blame for on this.

Another reason could be that Henry is a pretty busy guy.  He has other film projects in the works so that means he might not have time to play Superman again. Henry’s next focus is the new TV show “The Witcher” which is based upon the video game, a Netflix TV series.

So Henry done playing the Superman role for good? It looks like it.

Henry Cavill’s Future as Superman in Doubt, Warner Bros. Focusing on Supergirl

This kind of sucks, ya know. I thought Henry made a great Superman,  I really did. It’s looking like Ben Affleck  is done playing Batman too. I really was hoping for a follow-up/sequel to “Man of Steel” but looks like it’s never happening now. Another “Justice League” film will probably happen but looks like Superman and Batman will have to be replaced.

I never thought WB’s and Henry would make this unprecedented move ’cause people were expecting them to give us a few more Superman movies w/ Henry playing the character. Well, that’s Hollywood, I guess. Things changes different directions all the time.

Henry really is a great actor, though. I’ve seen him in other movies besides Superman flicks. The Superman movies did give him a pretty big career boost and I think he will star in bigger movies in the future. Maybe Henry will play a different superhero somewhere down the road, I can see that happening.

It’s going to be interesting to see what Warner Bros. is planning to do with Superman now. They’ll probably reboot the series again and I’m hearing stuff about Michael B. Jordan being the possible replacement.

“Man of Steel”, “Batman vs. Superman: DOJ” and “Justice League” all got mixed reviews but I liked all three movies,  I really did. Henry probably feels that three Superman movies is enough for him. Maybe he just got overwhelmed and he wants to move on to other projects?

Henry hasn’t responded to this with a statement yet but I’m sure he will soon. I think he will speak out about it on his official instagram page so keep an eye on that…

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.

Warner Bros. moving forward with an all-female “Lord of the Flies” movie… really? Lmao…

Well, we’ll see how this one goes. Hollywood already toyed with the idea of an all-female “Ghostbusters” movie… well, looked at how that turned out; that movie flopped in the box office pretty hard. The same will happen to this movie that Warner Bros. is planning: an all-female version of “The Lord of The Flies”. There’s a couple of dudes by the name of Scott McGehee and David Siegel who made a deal with WB to write and direct it.

Scott McGehee & David Siegel Plan Female-Centric ‘Lord Of The Flies’ At Warner Bros

My question is, why? The book by William Golding is one of my favorite books of all time and I love the movie too. The book is way better, of course. I’m with most people that I don’t like this idea at all. This “all-female” trend has gotta stop ’cause nobody wants it.
