• News: Bale to Affleck: Don't pee in the Batsuit
• Review: American Hustle
Christian Bale has revealed he developed a "love/hate" relationship with acting after the success of early roles in films such as Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun left him feeling pressure to provide for his family.
Bale rose to fame after being cast at the age of 11 as a young English boy who becomes a prisoner of the Japanese in Second World War Shanghai. The resulting press attention and requirement to keep acting for financial reasons fostered a deep distrust of the profession in the young Bale, which he says has never entirely left him.
"It was money, you know? 'Christ, my family can do with that! »

Over the weekend Amy Adams attended the premiere of David O. Russell's American Hustle, but - following last week's big announcement that Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious) has secured the role of Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman - much of the topic of conversation during the press interviews surrounded Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel sequel and her thoughts on the addition of another strong female character to the fledgling DC Cinematic Universe.
"Oh did they? I don't even know so clearly I'm not the person to talk to," said Adams when asked by Collider how long she had known about the casting. "That's awesome, I hope I get a scene with her. I love working with the gals. I think we start [filming] in February, it's sort of the plan. I'm excited, I think it's gonna be awesome!" I think it's gonna be good times."

Now that Gal Gadot of the "Fast & Furious" franchise is locked to star as Wonder Woman alongside Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman in Batman vs. Superman , it.s time to consider the possibility that the narrative could veer in the direction of the Superman/Wonder Woman comics in which the Man of Steel and the Warrior Princess are a super-powerered power couple. While talking to Amy Adams about David O. Russell's American Hustle , she took the time to tell ComingSoon.net's SuperHeroHype about how she'd feel if Wonder Woman.s presence led to a love triangle: "Am I interested? I don.t know.

Earlier this week, the movie world was shocked when it was announced that Gal Gadot (Fast And Furious film series) will play Wonder Woman for the characters cinematic debut set to take place in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman Vs. Superman.
When it was also revealed that The Flash will have a role somewhere in the sequel, it became very clear that Warner Bros are no longer wasting their time and are indeed paving the way for a future Justice League team up film to rival Marvel’s The Avengers. Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel sequel will now include DC Comics three most iconic heroes, which are of course Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). While the film is becoming increasingly bloated, you can’t argue with Warner Bros’ ambition and willingness to make the audience aware of these characters. This is especially true »

For Playboy‘s 60th anniversary issue, the magazine needed an iconic subject for the Playboy Interview, and I hit the lottery. I got to talk with actor-writer-director-producer Ben Affleck about his life and the remarkable second act that he wrote for himself as writer-director of Gone Baby Gone and The Town, which culminated in the Best Picture Oscar for Argo. Naturally, the first topic on the menu was his surprise decision to become the latest in a long line of actors to play the Caped Crusader in Batman Vs. Superman. At the time we met, Affleck was watching as the Internet exploded negatively to his Bat-candidacy. Having weathered career hardship before and come back stronger for it, Affleck was unconcerned by the Bat-zealots who actually started online petitions against him.

"Can one man make a difference?" No, no, not that Ben Affleck. Well yea, that Affleck, but—the filmmaker. Mondo revealed a new series they've commissioned to highlight the movies of Ben Affleck - the Director. In 2007, Affleck made his feature directing debut with Gone Baby Gone, a riveting kidnapping thriller that is still my personal favorite Affleck-directed movie. He followed that up with the Boston crime thriller The Town in 2010, then won Best Picture with the based-on-a-true-story 70s thriller Argo in 2012. Mondo made print for each one and they're stunning, honestly, The Town especially, the glow of the lights - perfect. Up first, here's the print for Ben Affleck's Argo (2012) designed by Matthew Woodson - 24"x36" at $45: Next - my favorite art print in this Mondo series, the poster for Ben Affleck's The Town (2010) designed by Daniel Danger (website). 24"x36" at $45 (red one).
