BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Jared Leto has confirmed that he will be playing the Clown Prince of Insanity in Suicide Squad, but plot details have informed us that, for now, The Joker will be locked away for the duration of the film and will be playing mind games on the villains in the Squad a la Hannibal Lecter.
Despite being primarily lead by supervillains, new information suggests that 2016’s Suicide Squad will feature an appearance from Batman. Here’s how he’ll fit into the film.
Ben Affleck has more than a few exciting projects coming down the pike in the next few years, including Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, his own next directorial effort Live By Night, and the newly-announced David Fincher-helmed remake of Strangers on a Train, but there’s another project that you should be looking out for as well.
It’s been revealed that David Fincher, Gillian Flynn, and Ben Affleck are now reteaming for a remake of the Alfred Hitchcock classic Strangers on a Train, with Affleck set to play the movie’s protagonist. The big question that remains, however, is who will play opposite him as the film’s murder-trading villain.
For the record, I personally thought Gone Girl was a great movie. Rosamund Pike was poetically perfect as "Amazing Amy" Dunne and her performance still haunts our dreams. That said, the David Fincher film was not without its faults, and this video is quick to point them all out.
Author Gillian Flynn has been talking recently about the idea of potentially reteaming with the likes of director David Fincher and Ben Affleck for a sequel to Gone Girl - but while that project is likely years away, the trio is now getting set to work on a completely different project all together.

While answering fans questions via twitter, Steven S. DeKnight also shed light on his opinion of the most recent Daredevil film, starring Ben Affleck. And while the movie had terrible reviews along with its release, DeKnight doesn’t think it’s Ben Affleck’s fault.
Sadly, the sets that were donated don’t tell us a lot about how they were used in Zack Snyder’s movie. The director says that Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) did fight inside of the sets that were later used to build the bat houses… in case a die hard fan wants to try and buy one of them in an auction.
Adam Sandler didn't exactly have the greatest 2014. Blended performed nowhere near the level of the actor's past big releases, and both of his recent attempts at more serious fair - Men, Women & Children and The Cobbler - got largely negative responses following their premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Batman will probably wind up spending most of his time with Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the Caped Crusader will also be sharing a few scenes with the Kryptonian’s love interest, Lois Lane.
The color scheme, while incorporating a darker grey that doesn’t contrast quite as well with the black detailing is most closely related to Frank Miller’s batsuit in The Dark Knight Returns comic book series.
Casting calls are scouting two boys ages 10 and 12, one to portray a younger version of Ben Affleck.
Michael Keaton just shut down every other Batman to follow him in what is undoubtedly the best response to any question... ever.
While there’s been speculation on the return of The Dark Knight’s Batman, Christian Bale has put the notion to rest, assuring that his portrayal doesn’t fit in any other superhero movies.
Despite the fact that the actor has gone on to be in some incredible dramas – earning an Oscar for his dizzying work in David O. Russell’s The Fighter -- it’s likely that Bale will always be remembered for his time in the Batsuit, when he traded lines with fellow icons and reinvented how Hollywood views the modern superhero genre.
To be fair, Ben Affleck is doing his part to keep the conversation going. While accepting the Hollywood Film Award for Fincher’s movie, Affleck made sure to poke fun at the “controversy” over his supposed nudity. And Affleck’s a terrific sport about all of this.
Basically, if he wants to keep his status as the best filmmaker of the past decade, Affleck might be better off never to make another movie. He might damage his average. And actually, that's almost guaranteed, because even undisputedly great filmmakers like The Coen Brothers have hit some low Rotten Tomatoes scores (The Lady Killers at 55).
What surprises me is that Zack Snyder is still filming. We have been running reports of Batman v Superman shooting since earlier this year, and the notes have been flooding in for months. Snyder could have enough in the proverbial can for 11 Batman v Superman movies.
So far, all signs are pointing to Ben Affleck's Batman radically different from the normal Caped Crusader that we're used to seeing on the big screen. The new Batman, so far, has been described as more seasoned and older than we're used to seeing him. But at the very least we know what hasn't changed: he still has the voice that makes the ladies pay attention.
What's the point of having a lot of money if you're not going to have some fun with it? It's why we so often see billionaire characters in Hollywood movies throw big, lavish parties - and it turns out that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is no different. What does set Luthor's big bash apart, however, is his very special guest list, which reportedly includes a good number of superheroes.
With two weekends at the top of the box office, it's safe to say that the mystery of Gone Girl has captivated and ensnared audiences to take a closer look at the film's labyrinthine plot line. Yet with all of the twists, turns, and taunts; there's still one character the story would be nothing without.
Everything there is to know about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is here, including release date changes, new casting and all the latest news on the Batman vs. Superman project in one place.
Ben Affleck’s impossibly comfortable turn as the self-centered Nick Dunne struck me as yet another combination of a perfect Fincher choice, followed by a seamless performance under the director’s watchful eye. And I realized it was the latest of many.
Millions of you flocked to Gone Girl over the weekend, and you saw Fincher’s ending. How does it differ from Gillian Flynn’s book?
