Latest rumours on The Batman claim it will be a Justice League sequel with or without Ben Affleck

I’m struggling to think of a project which has had as much rumour and speculation surrounding it as Warner Bros. and DC Films’ planned Dark Knight solo movie The Batman.

For months now, it seems a day hasn’t gone by without some report claiming to drop “insider information” on the status of the film, and that stepped up a gear this past week when Ben Affleck revealed that he was yet to sign on for the movie, and looking to “segue out” of the role.

To bring you up to speed, a rumour emerged a few days ago claiming that Reeves has identified Jake Gyllenhaal as a replacement for Ben Affleck, and that he is considering two ideas for his trilogy – one which would serve as a prequel to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the other as a standalone series of films.

Well, we now have

The Batman Said To Be A Crime Film That Dives Deep Into Batman Mythos

After Wonder Woman, there was a brief period when the Dceu looked to be back on track. Then came the big fat mess of Justice League, which likely marks the final time we’ll see Ben Affleck in the Batsuit. Jake Gyllenhaal is apparently poised to take over the role from him in Matt ReevesThe Batman, which is currently in pre-production, but what would a Gyllenhaal/Reeves Dark Knight pic look like?

After the failure of Justice League, will they jettison the increasingly wobbly Dceu and make it a solo film, or perhaps head back way before Man of Steel and show us the prime of the Dceu Batman? Well, inside sources at Warner Bros. have now told former Latino-Review writer Mario-Francisco Robles that it’ll be neither. Word is that DC are ploughing ahead with their cinematic universe, saying in concrete terms: “The Batman will not be a prequel or reboot.

Want To See What It’d Be Like If David Fincher Directed Halloween?

Because I’m a giant film geek, I absolutely adore those “what if X directed Y” video mashups. Perhaps my all-time favorites are Patrick (H) Willem’s What If Wes Anderson Directed X-Men and What If Ingmar Bergman Directed The Flash. Now, it looks like we have two new challengers: “Jack and Justin” aka Justin Nijm and Jack Bishop, who you might be familiar with from their online comedy shorts – particularly, Dennis Quaid’s On-Set Freak-Out, which was featured on Jimmy Kimmel.

Recently, they served up a cool-as-hell imagining of what a David Fincher-directed Halloween might look like. Clearly, the pair know their Fincher, as they’ve gone to impressive lengths to emulate the aesthetics and atmosphere of one of his movies, complete with a stabilized camera and color correction. On top of all that, they’ve used Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ remix of the Halloween theme, which

Is it time to erase Kevin Spacey from history?

Anghus Houvouras on whether it is time to erase Kevin Spacey from history…

It’s rare that you get to see a snowball rolling down a hill. The popular metaphor about momentum has always struck me as odd for a few reasons. First, how often does someone roll a snowball down a hill, much less successfully have a hand-sized ball of snow transform into a gigantic ice-cold flattening orb? Second, even if this was physically probable it’s doubtful that you were there to witness it. More than likely, you’re seeing the thing just moments before it mows you down like a Looney Tunes character.

The last few weeks has been the first time that the snowball metaphor has felt apt. I watched, as so many did, as accusations rolled out against small type perps like Devin Faraci, Harry Knowles and their enablers like the head of Alamo Drafthouse

Made in England: Three Classics by Powell and Pressburger

  • MUBI
Mubi is showing Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Small Back Room (1949), The Tales of Hoffmann (1951) and Michael Powell's Peeping Tom (1960) in November and December, 2017 in the United States in the series Powell & Pressburger: Together and Apart.The story goes that when they were casting their first flat-out masterpiece together, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943), Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger sent a letter to an actress outlining a manifesto of their production company, called "the Archers." At the time, the Archers was freshly incorporated, with Powell and Pressburger sharing all credit for writing, directing, and producing, and their manifesto had five points. Point one was to ensure that they provided their financial backers with "a profit, not a loss," which may raise eyebrows among those who are used to manifestos burning with anti-capitalist fire—but then, in a system like commercial cinema, profitability buys freedom.

Should Hollywood’s Worst Keep Us Away from the Content It Produces?

Samuel Brace on whether the scandals currently rocking Hollywood should keep us away from content…

Hollywood is in crisis. There are no two ways about it.

First there was the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the alleged sexual assaults, harassment, and even rape of myriad women during his time as one of the industry’s most powerful producers. And then there’s director Brett Ratner, accused of preying on individuals and forcing himself on a former employee of Endeavor Talent Agency. And, perhaps most shockingly of all, there’s Kevin Spacey, accused of molesting a 14 year old actor when he himself was 26 years old, and sexually harassing and assaulting copious other young men throughout his career, including on the set of his hit Netflix show, House of Cards.

Now, accusations aren’t convictions, allegations aren’t proof, but where there is smoke, there is nearly always fire, and right now, the smoke

Alien 3 to Mindhunter: David Fincher’s outsider protagonists

Ryan Lambie Nov 3, 2017

Netflix's Mindhunter is the latest example of the unique, outsider characters in the work of David Fincher...

When FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) sits down with convicted serial killer Edmund Kemper (Cameron Britton) in the Netflix series Mindhunter, he’s both terrified and fascinated. Kemper, serving multiple life sentences for a spate of brutal kidnappings and murders - including his own mother - could offer a valuable insight into a criminal mindset that was barely understood in the late 1970s. Ford hopes to use a series of interviews with Kemper, and convicts like him, to build up a psychological profile which could be used to help track down other serial murderers; it soon becomes apparent, however, that Ford’s fascination with Kemper runs beyond the strictly professional.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Head Was in a Box for Halloween Like in Se7en
Last month marked the 22nd anniversary of the iconic 1995 classic Se7en, which starred Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman and marked a breakthrough role for a young actress named Gwyneth Paltrow.
