Christian Bale: "I'm jealous of someone else playing Batman"

8 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Christian Bale has been chatting about the moment when he heard that Ben Affleck was the new Batman...

Christian Bale was adamant come the end of his work on The Dark Knight Rises that, unless Christopher Nolan was directing again, his Batman days were over. Thus, as you more than likely know, the role then went to Ben Affleck, who's taking over Batman duties in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which is due in 2016.

But how did Bale feel when he heard that Affleck was the new Batman? Empire magazine posed that question to him.

"I've got to admit initially, even though I felt that it was the right time to stop, there was always a bit of me going 'go on... let's do another'. So when I heard there was someone else doing it, there was a moment where I just stopped and stared »

Christian Bale Talks Ben Affleck As Batman And Whether He Contemplated A Return

22 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Despite the voice, Christian Bale is widely considered to be the best big screen Batman to date, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck has a lot to live up to after the British actor's superb take on the iconic DC Comics superhero in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy. Talking about his upcoming movie with Sir Ridley Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings) in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, Bale was asked to compare the role of Moses to Batman. "It's a little embarrassing to compare Moses to Batman," Bale laughed. "There are similarities, you know, tragic beginning and then a heroic future. But Moses is a little more violent. I'm sure if there'd been guns around at that time, Bruce Wayne might have had a chance." As for how he felt to learn that Gone Girl's Ben Affleck had been cast as the »

Why I Think Man of Steel Is Great

22 November 2014 5:20 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Man of Steel has been polarized by a lot of critics and it has like a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes. Although it seems like most critics don't really like a lot of Zack Snyder's work. Like 300 which everyone would agree was amazing they gave it a 60%. Also, Watchmen which I really enjoyed they gave it a 64%, most people might not agree with me on that but I still really enjoyed Watchmen. With that said though I really liked Man of Steel a lot and it's the best Superman movie in opinion. I know a lot you will be like, "What about the first two Christopher Reeve Superman movies?", and yes they're great and classics, but let's face it they're extremely dated and they didn't have the technology back then to show everyone Superman can do on the big screen. If Man of Steel suffered from anything, it suffered from some of the most unfair, »

10 Amazing Unmade David Fincher Films

20 November 2014 10:05 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

There’s a good chance that, even if you consider yourself a pretty big fan of director David Fincher, there’s a fair amount of his work you’ve never lied eyes on. Before he reached the cinematic heights of this year’s Gone Girl and cultural landmarks like Se7en, Fight Club and The Social Network, Fincher worked primarily as a music video director. He worked with some pretty big names, too, with his video production company Propaganda Films seeing him rub shoulders with fellow future tians of cinema like Spike Jonze, Zack Snyder and Michael Bay, making clips for the likes of Madonna, Aerosmith and Michael Jackson.

It was that music video work that got him his first feature gig, the underrated Alien 3 (Fincher’s quoted as saying “No one hated it more than me; to this day, no one hates it more than me.”). That experience was »

Why Guardians of the Galaxy was such a massive financial success

18 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on why Guardians of the Galaxy was such a massive financial success…

As it stands now, Guardians of the Galaxy has $770 million dollars worldwide, passing every other comic book movie released this year, and second only Transformers: Age of Extinction in the highest-earning movies of the year. I did predict Guardians having a good run, but I would never have guessed it would have made so much. So why did Guardians, a pretty obscure comic book, turn into the biggest comic book movie of the year, and also pave the way for what might be one of the greatest franchises of our generation?

The most obvious answer is James Gunn. I want to give screenwriter Nicole Perlman a lot of credit for helping shape the project to what it needed to be so that James Gunn could run with it. I’m actually a little concerned she won »

Are Bruce Wayne's parents the most killed characters in movie history?

18 November 2014 6:34 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Walk down the wrong alleyway in Gotham City and you're in for a nasty shock. Nobody has found this out more frequently (or violently) than Thomas and Martha Wayne, the most murdered people in all of film and television history apart from Sean Bean.

This event proves to be a formative moment in the life of a young Bruce Wayne, the turning point that spurs him on to a life of fighting crime as a masked vigilante.

With the news that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will recreate this iconic Dark Knight moment, Digital Spy looks back at some of the screen recreations of that fateful Gotham night.

Batman (1989)

The first big screen depiction of the Waynes' death happened in Tim Burton's 1989 blockbuster. Here there's a twist in the tale as it's not Joe Chill but Jack Napier (later reborn as The Joker) who ambushes the millionaires.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - The Quality Of 'Mercy'

17 November 2014 6:08 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Japanese actress Tao Okamoto ("The Wolverine") plays DC Comics' character character 'Mercedes "Mercy" Graves' in director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

Mercy Graves originally appeared in "Superman: The Animated Series" (1996) as the bodyguard/personal assistant of Superman's archenemy, 'Lex Luthor'.

Originally the leader of a gang of female thieves, Luthor was impressed by her mixture of ruthlessness and street savvy.

He offered her a job, taking her in, cleaning her up and entrusting her with personal security and dirty work.

A proficient martial artist, Mercy uses a rough, street-form of kickboxing as her preferred form of attack. 

She is also an expert with most forms of handheld weapons.

Her preferred dress is a chauffeur's uniform with short skirt, chauffeur's cap, nylons and high heeled boots.

Batman v Superman to recreate iconic Dark Knight origins scene

17 November 2014 2:34 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spoilers: This article contains details on Batman v Superman that some readers may wish to avoid.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will feature an iconic scene from the Dark Knight's origins.

During filming in Chicago last week, Zack Snyder's superhero blockbuster recreated the moment when Bruce Wayne witnessed his parents being murdered after an alleyway mugging.

The scene first played out in the November 1939 issue of Detective Comics, with Joe Chill identified as the killer.

Subsequent films, TV shows, comics and video games have replayed the murder, although Tim Burton's 1989 Batman changed the killer from Chill to Jack Nicholson's Jack Napier, who eventually became The Joker.

Batman v Superman has taken inspiration from Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns graphic novel by showing the Waynes getting ambushed outside a cinema after seeing The Mark of Zorro »

Editorial: Dream Directors For The DC Movies

15 November 2014 7:43 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

October 2014 will forever live on in the memory of fans as one of the greatest months for Cbm news ever. A gradually escalating Cold War between Marvel and WB/DC has resulted in both studios unveiling their film slates, and I couldn’t be happier. Though I may be more of a Marvel guy in general, today I’m going to focus on DC’s upcoming projects, and who I’d like to see direct them. We already know the directors for a few of DC’s upcoming movies. Man of Steel and Watchmen director Zack Snyder will be helming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and both parts of Justice League, and Fury and End of Watch director David Ayer will be helming Suicide Squad. Beyond that however, we enter into the wild world of fan speculation, a world I’m going to dive into today. There are hundreds »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Batman

14 November 2014 11:43 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

Quick poll: who is the coolest superhero?

If you answered Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man or Aquaman (God forbid), you’re mistaken. Sorry, but it really is that simple.

As you all know, the correct answer is Batman because… he’s Batman, as he likes to remind us. Frequently. Batman’s popularity has much to do with the fact that, unlike the vast majority of superheroes, anyone could be him if they can only summon the requisite will and make the necessary sacrifices. And if they’re a billionaire – the last part’s pretty crucial.

Still, non-billionaires everywhere have fantasised about being Batman ever since the World’s Greatest Detective (suck it, Sherlock) made his bow in Detective Comics #27 over seventy-five years ago. The Caped Crusader has since become one of popular fiction’s most enduring icons and moved well beyond the comic book medium: finding allies in Tim Burton, »

'Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice' Will Have IMAX Sequences, Plus Iconic Scene Rumored

14 November 2014 10:35 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While some on our team were distracted by the changing aspect ratios of “Interstellar” in IMAX, the sheer quality and magnitude of the footage (not to mention the steep surcharge) means that filmmakers will continue to gravitate to the format. The latest IMAX convert? Zack Snyder. With rumors along those lines floating all over the web-o-nets the past day or two, Slashfilm has confirmed that large format cameras are being used on the comic book movie shoot. Just how extensive the IMAX scenes will be remains to be seen, but one iconic sequence in particular appears to have been shot as such. Warning: spoilers ahead. Some eagle-eyed fans in Chicago (via Collider) have spotted the crew of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” shooting what appears to be the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents. That’s right folks, the “Watchmen” director is following in the footsteps of his “Man Of Steel »

Batman V Superman Shooting in IMAX

14 November 2014 9:32 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It has been confirmed that Zack Snyder is shooting Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice with IMAX cameras. Snyder's Man of Steel was released in IMAX theaters, but he didn't use IMAX cameras to shoot any of the scenes. This will be the first time that the director has shot a movie in the IMAX format.

I'm a big supporter of the IMAX format. I think it's the best format to watch a movie in. I think studios should ditch the whole 3D thing and focus their attention on IMAX. 

Christopher Nolan's Interstellar was an amazing IMAX movie going experience, and it's so cool to see that Snyder is going to take Batman v Superman to that next epic level. I am really hoping that the story and script for this film will match how awesome it's going to look. 

The movie stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, »

What do you think about the photographs? Personally, I'm pleased to see that we are finally getting a origin that more closely resembles some sort of source material. But it's not just any source material, it's Frank Miller's famous gamechanger The Dark Knight Returns. Are you looking forward to this extremely respectful representation of Batman? Leave your thoughts in the comments below and let us know. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Jason Momoa, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Henry Cavill, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Ray Fisher, and Laurence Fishburne.

'Batman v Superman' Is Shooting in IMAX

14 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, we reported that an iconic scene from the DC comics was being shot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice using IMAX cameras. This report came from a fan, who witnessed the cameras being set up on the streets of Chicago for the production. Today, a spokeswoman for IMAX confirms that director Zack Snyder and his crew are using multiple IMAX cameras to capture some of the action in this highly anticipated superhero ensemble.

While Man of Steel was released in IMAX, none of the scenes in the movie were shot using the actual cameras. This marks the first time that Zack Snyder has shot in the immersive format.

While it is not yet known how much of the movie will actually be shot in IMAX, it is known that one very key sequence will utilize the state of the art IMAX equipment. As this is considered a spoiler, »
