Frank Miller on Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy

16 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

During an interview with Playboy, legendary comic book writer Frank Miller talked about what he thought of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. Miller is the writer of some incredible comics book stories such as RoninDaredevil: Born Again, The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City, and 300. The Dark Knight Returns is one of my favorite comics of all time. 

It's really interesting to read what Miller thinks about the movies that were based on characters that he's written for over the years. I was really surprised to learn that he has never watched any Batman movie all the way through. Here's an excerpt from the interview where he also addresses the Daredevil and Elektra films, as well as his love for Batman and his hate for Superman.

Playboy: There’s a consensus that Daredevil and Elektra, two movies adapted from comics you wrote, were lousy. Do you agree with that opinion? »

Frank Miller Can’t Even Watch Batman Movies

20 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

For better or worse, Frank Miller helped define superheroes in the ’80s with his grim and often violent stories featuring Marvel’s Daredevil and DC’s Batman. His work on those books had an influence that is felt in comics and film today, 30 years after the publication of some of Miller’s work. The most recent run […]

Frank Miller Is Not A Batman Film Fan

20 August 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Frank Miller's seminal Batman graphic novels "The Dark Knight Returns" and "Year One" are often credited as reinventing not only the Batman franchise but comic books on the whole - ushering in an era of dark, adult-targeted works full of more complex themes and darker violence.

When it comes to Batman's cinematic interpretations though, Miller says he can't watch them despite his works having an obvious influence on their construction. Speaking about it in a recent interview with Playboy to promote this week's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" film release, he says his dismissal isn't just for the Caped Crusader but most of the films of titles he has worked on including "Daredevil" and "Elektra":

"When people come out with movies about characters I've worked on, I always hate them. I have my own ideas about what the characters are like. I mean, I can't watch a Batman movie. »

Frank Miller Hates Every Batman Movie, Refuses To Watch Any Of Them

20 August 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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. In an interview with Playboy, Frank Miller admits he's not much of a fan of the movies made from his comics, like Daredevil and Electra. Fair enough, those movies are generally regarded as poor to terrible. But Miller extends that sentiment to every representation of Batman, a character he re-imagined as a grizzled, fifty-something who was essentially a sociopath back in the late 1980s. He tells Playboy : "When people come out »

Frank Miller: Batman v. Supermanc "They're only lines on paper"

20 August 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night, a Playboy interview with Frank Miller was brought to my attention as he discusses his new film, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, as well as his interpretation of Batman as seen in his graphic novels "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" and "Batman: Year One". He also doesn't shy away from giving his impression of movies based on characters he's worked on, up to and including Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, but let's take this one step at a time. As far as his approach to Batman, whom he portrayed as older and more grizzled, he says, "Well, you do get crabbier as you get older. laughs Also, I never believed that a guy who tortured people and dressed like Dracula was the most pleasant person to have over for dinner." Zack Snyder appears to be taking this approach »

Frank Miller: 'I love Superman but can't watch a Batman movie'

20 August 2014 2:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Frank Miller has revealed that he "loves" Superman, but is not so fond of Batman films.

The controversial comics legend addressed the commonly held belief that he hates the Man of Steel in an interview about his upcoming Sin City: A Dame to Kill For adaptation.

"The Dark Knight [comic book] series is all from Batman's point of view," Miller told Playboy. "But if you look at Dark Knight 2, you'll see a Superman who's much calmer than the one in the first Dark Knight.

"Batman and Superman are dead opposites. I love Superman. Do I love Batman more? They're not people. They're only lines on paper."

When asked about the poor reception of the Daredevil and Elektra films - two characters he wrote at length - he said: "When people come out with movies about characters I've worked on, I always hate them.

"I have my own ideas about what the characters are like. »

Frank Miller Comments On Chris Nolan's Batman Trilogy

19 August 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Legendary comic book writer and artist, Frank Miller, is no stranger to stirring the pot. The man created some fantastic comics as well as some of the best story arcs for already established characters. You could start with: Ronin, Daredevil: Born Again, The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City and 300. Many of his tales have been adapted into feature films and he has even written a few of those as well. Though, I wouldn't bring up RoboCop 2 if you happen to run into him. In recent years, he has kicked up some dust by putting out a controversial comic book title, Holy Terror, and criticized the Occupy Wall Street movement. Thank god for Alan Moore or Frank Miller would be considered the grumpiest guy in comics. Thanks Alan. Cute beard. Now, check out his recent comments on Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy which will surely rub some people the »

Being Batman: The Actors Underneath the Cowl

17 August 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

“What are you?’ That question has been on many a criminal’s mind for numerous decades. Out of absolute fear, these evildoers stare into the face of darkness personified, a creature of the night that is a true symbol of justice. I’m talking of course about Batman, the Dark Knight, a crimefighter who strikes fear into the hearts of those deserve it. He is a highly complex character and throughout his 75-year history, many talented (and some not so talented) actors have brought him to life on the silver screen.

Lewis Wilson Batman (1943) The first film appearance of the Caped Crusader occurred at the height of World War II in 1943, four years after the character’s creation. Lewis Wilson portrayed Batman in a 15-chapter film serial released by Columbia Pictures, in which he and trusty sidekick Robin go head to head with Dr. Daka, a demented Japanese scientist who »

Everything You Need To Know About Deadpool

14 August 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I remember first reading about Deadpool in the early 2000's in my X-Men anthology series. The picture next to his profile, if I remember right, was Dp kicking ass while talking about GI Joe. I remember thinking it was weird and flipping the page, not really giving it a second thought. Longshot was my favorite mutant. 

Fast forward to now, when the "Merc with a mouth" has skyrocketed to geek fame. Cons are flooded with geeks in suits, he's in video games and, yes, even children's programs.

So with all the hype of the potential movie on the horizon, you may be toying with the idea of getting into Deadpool. For those people, I have a collection of everything you need to know. Where you need to start reading, basic character background, etc. Let this be that little push you need to dive right into his twisted world!

Ben Affleck Opens Up About Playing Batman in Batman V Superman

14 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Since Ben Affleck was cast as the Dark Knight about a year ago, I've seen a lot more fans open up to the idea of him taking on this character. Maybe it's because of the cool photos and footage of him in costume that people have seen. We still have yet to see what his performance will be like, but I still think he's going to be great as the Caped Crusader. 

In a recent interview with EW, Affleck opened up about his role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, saying:

"Before I took the role, Warner Bros. gave me a bunch of past reactions to casting and said, 'Are you sure you want to get into this? This is part and parcel of these movies now. There's a lot of active fans with a lot of opinions.' To me, having been through a certain amount of that, »

Ben Affleck Talks Batman V Superman Role; Praises Zack Snyder And Chris Terrio's Vision

14 August 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The initial response to Ben Affleck being cast as Batman was met with a mixed response to say the least (#BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck trended worldwide for days). While many fans embraced the decision to cast an actor who had turned his career around both in front and behind the camera, others simply could not see past performances in the likes of Daredevil and Gigli. When EW recently got the chance to catch up with the Gone Girl star, they were quick to quiz him on what it was like to see such a vocal response. "Before I took the role, Warner Bros. gave me a bunch of past reactions to casting and said, “Are you sure you want to get into this? This is part and parcel of these movies now. There’s a lot of active fans with a lot of opinions.” To me, having been through a certain amount of that, »

How 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Went From In-Joke to Blockbuster

14 August 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently the number-one movie in America — a development largely viewed like it's a plot by the evil Shredder himself. Technically directed by Jonathan Liebesman, this blockbuster reboot bears the stamp of its superstar producer, Transformers maestro Michael Bay: a sturdy children's-toy concept sits uncomfortably alongside destructive urban combat and awkward double entendres about turtle erections. Garnering bad reviews from both film critics and nostalgic fans, it nonetheless displaced its direct competitor, the much, much better-liked Guardians of the Galaxy, to seize control of the box office. »

Our weekly round-up of all the latest superhero news and talking points, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Cinematic Universe, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, Batman: Assault on Arkham, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3, Black Panther, Daredevil, Deadpool, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Venom Carnage, Kick-Ass 3 and more….

Well, the big showdown between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America 3 is no more, with Warner Bros. blinking and shifting the release of BvS away from Marvel’s May 6th 2016 date to March 25th 2016 (a wise move, considering it will now face very little in the way of competition). The news was followed by the announcement that Warner Bros. has finally pulled the trigger on a DC Cinematic Universe by setting a further Nine »

Set Pics: Cox Films "Daredevil," Affleck On "Dawn"

4 August 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Charlie Cox has been at work on Netflix and Marvel's "Daredevil" TV series and Just Jared has posted photos of the British actor in costume as blind lawyer Matt Murdock, the man who suits up as "Daredevil" to fight crime. Close up photos showcase an interesting scar that has been added to the character's right eye.

Speaking of the Man Without Fear, the previous Daredevil himself Ben Affleck is currently busy playing Bruce Wayne/Batman for Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Photos and a bit of video have been taken of Affleck on the set confirming that the older, hardened Wayne we see in the film looks like... well like Affleck, albeit with some silver flecks on the sides. Sadly there's nothing juicy here (and the camera work is pretty shocking):

First Look at Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock on the Set of Marvel’s Daredevil

4 August 2014 5:04 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Daredevil made his big screen debut back in 2003 when he was played by Ben Affleck. Critics and fans alike agreed that the movie did not work, and while a reboot was in development at one point at Fox with Joe Carnahan, the studio ultimately decided to let the rights revert to Marvel Studios.

Rather than give the Man Without Fear another movie, Marvel have instead decided to make the character part of four series’ which will debut on online streaming service Netflix.

Daredevil will be joined by Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, with the foursome later teaming up in an event series called The Defenders. We haven’t heard much about the other three, but Daredevil is currently shooting in New York, and Boardwalk Empire star Charlie Cox has been cast as the superhero.

The series also stars Deborah Ann Woll, Vincent D’Onofrio, Elden Henson, and Rosario Dawson. »

Daredevil: More Pics Of Charlie Cox On Set As 'Matt Murdock'

4 August 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

So still no costume, but I'd say Marvel will actually release an official image of that themselves before there's any chance of it being snapped on set. What do you think of Charlie boy as Matty Murdock? They seem to have gone with the auburn hair similar to what Ben Affleck sported on his noggin in Fox's Daredevil movie. We'll keep you updated if any more pics make their way online. The show will debut on Netflix in 2015, and also stars Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin/Wilson Fisk, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Rosario Dawson in an unknown role.

Not A Set Visit: A 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Preview

4 August 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

And when I walk up in the building/everybody's hands go Up!....And they stay there!

It’s the week of release and I still don’t feel like I have a bead on the new live-action iteration of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But that's okay.

I’ve been following the development of this movie since it seemed like an immediate reality at a public showing of the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live action film in New York celebrating a Turtles anniversary. The creators were on hand and everyone was excited to hear the Turtles were going to interact with real things again after a hibernation period in the cartoon space (which gave us some worthwhile entries for the Turtle fan - TV’s Turtles Forever and cinema’s CGI Tmnt).

Then, there was the whole “these Turtles are Aliens” debacle that at first looked like producer Michael Bay misunderstanding the property then, »
