BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The minute The Dark Knight opened in 2008 to the kind of critical acclaim and box office that almost never happens, everyone started talking about the sequel-- and the loudest ones were probably the executives at Warner Bros., who were surely eager to keep the money train rolling
Only for a movie as hugely anticipated as The Dark Knight Rises can the vaguest bit of information about the ending be considered spoiler-worthy. But just as fans of Harry Potter spent years pondering what J.K. Rowling meant when she said she had already written the last line of the last book, screenwriter David S. Goyer's recent hints about the ending of The Dark Knight Rises
Rewrites in and of themselves are no reason to worry about a project-- and hey, X-Men: First Class proved that you can pretty much be writing a script as you go and have the movie turn out well in the end. Of course, with someone as meticulous as Nolan involved
There is a downside to comic book fanaticism, and Iím not referring to the damage it can inflict on a bank account. Iím talking about surprise. Knowing that Doc Ock was to be the villain in Spider-Man 2, I knew from the get go that there would be a scene in which Alfred Molina would strap on a set of mechanical arms.
With no less than six comic book movies set to be released, 2012 is likely to go down in history as the year of the superhero. The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, the Spider-Man
It's only Tuesday, but already it's looking like Superman week. If you don't already know, the big news of yesterday was that 300 and Watchmen director Zack Snyder has been chosen to direct
Without a doubt, the biggest news of the day has been that Zack Snyder will helm the Christopher Nolan-produced, David S. Goyer written Superman reboot. But as big as this news is, there are still many details
The selection process for a Superman director has been as up and down as any casting for a superhero film. Since it was announced that Christopher
Anyone who has ever caught an episode of Mad Men and has even the most basic experience with comics has had the following thought: "Jon Hamm would make a damn fine Superman."
Even if Jonah Nolan really is the top guy on the list that doesnít mean heís free of competition. The Dark Knight co-writer, David S. Goyer, is also in the running
Talking on last night's The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson Cage confirmed "there's gonna be a new one" and told the host, "I just made the deal today."
Cage is in talks to put the flaming skull back on, and with his money woes of late, rest assured he'll be taking most roles that come his way. All the wheeling and dealing is in the early stages so really nobody is confirmed yet
As for Superman, Nolan quashed most of the rumors we've seen-- no Brainiac or Luthor, no evidence that Jonathan Nolan will direct it-- and promises that Superman and Batman will not exist as part of the same universe
rustratingly, The Wrap doesn't follow up on Nelson's "no deals have been signed," so there's no telling what she actually means by that. My guess is the negotiations are still at work in getting Nolan on board
Their scooper got a few details about what Goyer has planned, including the fact that it's not an origin story-- good news for anyone already familiar with Lois Lane and such, which is pretty much everyone on the planet
As we draw closer to the two-year anniversary of The Dark Knight and its phenomenal success, and Christopher Nolan's next project Inception prepares to open in July, it's clear there must be some work happening on a third Batman film
As for what that polish will entail, it's basically Goyer taking his "hard R" Ghost Rider 2 script and transforming it into PG-13, a process he says won't be as difficult as you might think, given that he wrote The Dark Knight and released it on the "bleeding edge" of PG-13
Nicolas Cage has been suggesting for a while now that he'd be game for Ghost Rider 2, and now such a horror has come to pass. Variety is reporting that David S. Goyer is in early talks to create the story for the sequel
Whether Magneto will be the focus of one, whether Ian McKellen will somehow play the role, nobody's saying, though Goyer promises "that project will move forward in the next year or so." So more vague promises"
No, Justice League doesn't seem any closer to happening, but David Goyer-- who co-wrote the recent Batman movies, remember-- wants to unite some DC villains in his prison film, Super Max
