Frank Miller is a comic book author known and admired for his deeply dark brand of visual storytelling, perhaps most recognized from the movie adaptations of his graphic novels Sin City and the upcoming Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. It turns out, Miller is outright hostile to movie adaptations of his characters that he himself didn't have a hand in helming, and that includes every single Batman movie. In fact, he hates them. Every. Single. One.
The Argo co-star was photographed smoking a cigarette and checking his phone, allegedly between takes. But when you scan down, you see that Scoot McNairy is wearing socks over his calves that suggest his legs will be altered in post-production, the way green-screen technology allows a filmmaker to manipulate an image.
Affleck is said to be going to the gym regularly for this role, but before this, he was happily playing non-musclebound characters. For a body to make a sudden shift into bruiser territory so quickly? No amount of money or personal trainers can ignore that this is just an unnatural treatment for the human body, and the body will often act accordingly.
Ben Affleck knows you arenít crazy about him being cast as the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyderís Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But he has been through this before (Gigli), and it seems to have made him (Jersey Girl) stronger as a result.
Momoa's been outspoken about this before: he apparently turned down the role of Drax in Guardians Of The Galaxy because he didn't think the role would push him as a performer and actor. Which might have been a bit too harsh, particularly to star Dave Bautista: what Momoa more likely dislikes is the pressures of these big films, and how they seem to dominate conversations.
Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has created its fair share of controversies as its moved through pre-production and filming, but one of the most interesting points of contention between the fans and the film has been the casting of Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
Two juicy rumors just dropped, in fact, but Iím going to protect you from yourself. Stop reading this story now if you do not want to possibly be spoiled about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice plot developments.
Imagine a Bruce Wayne/Batman dichotomy that isn't merely about dispensing justice, but about a man who's starting to lose faith in what his ultimate cause is all about. Imagine a man who wants to pass the mantle onto someone else, but has a past that makes him question whether he actually can. The possibilities are plentiful, and for the sake of brevity we've picked six Batman stories that would be perfect big screen adaptations to feature a more aged, but no less badass version of The Dark Knight.
What is a big deal is that we're dealing with a more mature Batman than we're used to. When you think about it, Batman has always been old enough to kick ass, but young enough to keep kicking ass.
Zack? If you are reading this, drop me an email. I have a lot of good questions about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the direction you hope to take this entire DC Cinematic Universe.
It's true that this year is an excellent case study, at least in regards to the domestic box office. The two biggest films of the year domestically are Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Lego Movie, which bowed in the spring. And aside from Transformers, no other film opened at the level of The Winter Soldier until Guardians Of The Galaxy, an August release.
If this approach is accurate, then Superman is indeed taking a backseat to Batman, and again being turned into a too-powerful demigod with questionable judgment, and not the hero who believed in the good of people and fought to protect the ideals of his adopted planet.
With dates for nine untitled films being announced this week, DC Comics has sparked the speculative fires at any and every movie site in town. If you're tired of Marvel running the show, and want to see some competition, continue reading on!
Spies have been all over the Michigan set for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, eager to catch a peek at any little snippet or detail for the recently rescheduled superhero mash-up. As such, each small piece of information has been analyzed and scrutinized beyond belief. Which is how we arrive at the photo above, which allegedly shows an interesting portrait being carried around.
A rumor began circulating this summer claiming that the companies have seven titles currently in the works, including Justice League, Wonder Woman and Flash and Green Latnern projects. Itís hard to say exactly how much of that information was accurate in terms of naming in-development projects, but one thing is definitely for sure: there are a lot of DC Comics movies set to be unveiled over the next few years.
