5 Reasons Ben Affleck's Solo Batman Movie Needs To Use The Hush Story Arc

23 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Say what you will about the current shaky ground of the Dceu, the future still looks bright for the members of the Justice League. The one Justice League member who has us particularly excited is also arguably the most popular: The Dark Knight. Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie has slowly but surely started to take shape, with recent developments stating that Red Hood will not make an appearance, and that the film will feature a large number of villains.   With that in mind, we think this is a perfect time for DC to finally adapt the modern classic Batman storyline, Hush. A personal battle between Bruce Wayne and his childhood friend Tommy Elliot, Hush was written by Jeph Loeb and blew audiences away when it hit shelves back in 2003. In the years since its release, it has become a quintessential Batman read, and more than worthy of »

Gotham season 2 episode 19 review: Azrael

Azrael brings brutal, cape-wearing justice to Gotham season 2 this week, seemingly inspiring a certain someone...

This review contains spoilers.

2.19 Azrael 

Holy holy warrior, Batman! Wasn’t that a delightful change of pace? In recent weeks, there’s been a fear that Gotham is burning through its storylines – and its villains – too quickly. In Azrael, though, a baddie was given room to breathe and left un-locked-up at the end of the episode.

When this episode worked, it really worked. For example, the shot of David Mazouz’s young Bruce Wayne looking up at Azrael in awe truly hit the right notes, and felt like a natural step in the inception of the Batman. That tableau of Azrael looming large atop the Gotham bridge at the end of the episode had a similar effectiveness, as did the moment when he smashed through a window at the Gcpd. It will »

Film Review: Captain America: Civil War

2 May 2016 10:03 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Synopsis:  Political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability when the actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage. The new status quo deeply divides members of the team. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sharply disagrees and supports oversight. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) must pick a side.

Exhale. Since announcing the third chapter in Captain America's trilogy would be Civil War, the nights have been long. That may seem extreme, but the exhale is one of satisfaction. Captain America: Civil War is just as good as everyone wanted it to be. Do you know how rare that is? Unless we're talking about a Uwe Boll film (ugh), the last time it happened was The Dark Knight. Speaking of which, it's absolutely »

Jeremy Irons to return as Alfred for 2017’s Justice League Part One

2 May 2016 12:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since an on-screen Batman isn’t complete without his Alfred Pennyworth, Jeremy Irons will be reprising his role from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as the Wayne family butler and chief of security in Zack Snyder’s Justice League Part One. 

The news was confirmed to Showbiz 411 by Irons himself while he was promoting his newest film The Man Who Knew Infinity. The outlet also mentions that Irons will be back on board for the 2018 Batman solo film, directed by his frequent Dawn of Justice screen partner and the Caped Crusader of DC Extended Universe, Ben Affleck.

The size of Irons’ role in Justice League is currently unknown, but it shouldn’t necessarily come as a surprise that he’ll be back, considering that for each of the Dark Knight’s previous live-action cinematic efforts, dating back to 1966’s Adam West-starring Batman, Alfred has appeared.

Irons took the role over from Michael Caine, »

Ben Affleck’s The Batman Will Be “Crammed With Villains”

1 May 2016 4:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fans might not have taken too kindly to Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but if there’s one thing that they all agreed on, it’s that Ben Affleck’s take on The Caped Crusader was a definite highlight of the film. So, it’s reassuring then to hear that the actor has complete creative control over the character’s upcoming solo effort, which is currently titled The Batman.

Rumors in the past have pointed towards the film adapting the famous “Under the Red Hood” story arc, which has Jason Todd return to Gotham City as a vengeful villain who’s after both Batman and The Joker. While fans would no doubt love to see that story on the big screen, Birth.Movies.Death is reporting that due to the similarities between “Red Hood” and Captain America: Civil War, DC isn’t going down that route for the film anymore. »

Will 'Batman' Ally 'Alfred Pennyworth' Return In Justice League? Jeremy Irons Reveals All!

30 April 2016 8:12 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Showbiz 411 has confirmed that Jeremy Irons will return as Batman's loyal butler Alfred in Justice League. The British actor apparently confirmed that he'll reprise the role in a chat with the site after they watched him perform on screen in The Man Who Knew Infinity. Honestly, this was to be expected (where The Dark Knight goes, Alfred surely follows), but it's still great news. Irons' chemistry with Ben Affleck was a highlight of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so reuniting them is essential.  Of course, as he'll be the one assembling the Justice League, Batman is expected to have a leading role in this movie, so it wouldn't actually make much sense if Alfred wasn't there providing him with intel. Just how big his role will be obviously remains to be seen at this point, but be sure to let us know how you feel about the decision to »

How Much Creative Control Ben Affleck Will Have Over The Solo Batman Movie

29 April 2016 12:36 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Audiences generally seem to pretty much agree on the fact that the best thing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has going for it is Ben Affleck’s portrayal of The Dark Knight. Nailing both Bruce Wayne as well as the Caped Crusader, the actor managed to win over even the film’s harshest critics. Considering the news that Ben Affleck will soon take the reigns on the solo Batman movie, it has many people wondering how long of a leash Warner Bros. will keep him on. As it turns out, they’ve pretty much given him carte blanche to do as he sees fit with the film.   During a recent episode of Heroic Insider, the folks at Popboom revealed that Warner Bros. has relinquished complete creative control of the upcoming Batman solo movie to Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns: From what I’m hearing, »

Captain America: Civil War – discuss the film with spoilers

29 April 2016 6:56 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It’s been hailed for its slick universe-building, searing badinage and subtle villain. But what did you make of Marvel’s latest superhero megaflick?

Captain America: Civil War is officially the best-reviewed superhero movie of all time, with a staggering 98% “fresh” rating on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. That’s ahead of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight (94%), and even better than Pixar’s The Incredibles (97%). But is the Russo brothers’ film really the European white truffle of comic-book movies, or just cleverly crafted celluloid candy floss, sweet to the taste but utterly lacking in nutrition? Here are some talking points you might want to consider.

‘The Omen’ Prequel Movie in the Works at Fox

28 April 2016 3:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox is developing “The First Omen,” a prequel to 1976’s horror-thriller “The Omen,” with Antonio Campos in talks to direct and David S. Goyer on board to produce.

Ben Jacoby has written the script for the prequel. Campos directed “Christine,” which premiered at Sundance and starred Rebecca Hall as Christine Chubbuck, the 29-year-old news reporter who committed suicide on live television in 1974.

Goyer, best known for his work on “The Dark Knight” trilogy, is producing with Kevin Turen through their Phantom Four banner.

The Omen” was directed by Richard Donner from a David Seltzer script. The film, starring Gregory Peck, Lee Remick and David Warner, revolved around a young child adopted at birth by an American Ambassador and his wife who are unaware that the child is the Antichrist.

The Omen” was a strong box office performer with over $60 million and won an Academy Award for best original score for Jerry Goldsmith. »

Defending The Amazing Spider-Man

28 April 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the wall-crawler prepares to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War, Henry Bevan defends 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man

A child is trapped in a car that is hanging off a bridge. The hero swings down, takes off his mask and reassures the trapped child that everything is going to be alright. The web holding the car snaps and our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man webs the boy free, saving him for the world to see. In a lesser superhero film, pursuing the villain would have been the main objective, but Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man slows things down and shows our hero being a hero. From this scene alone, it is easy to say that Tasm is a misunderstood movie.

Sandwiched between The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises, it was unfairly seen as a cynical superhero snack, the quick fix between Marvel’s bold experiment »

Fox Summons Plans For The Omen Prequel Movie

28 April 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Not to be confused with A&E’s half-baked drama Damien, which catapults the demonic franchise into the present day, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Fox has hatched plans for a prequel movie to The Omen.

That’s right, forty years since the haunting original crept onto the silver screen, the Antichrist is primed for a return. Bearing the official title The First Omen, the outlet reveals that Antonio Campos – best known for directing Sundance hit Christine – is in line to helm the movie, which will seemingly cast light on the mysterious origins behind Damien’s birth. Newcomer Ben Jacoby, meanwhile, is on board to pen the script.

No word yet on just how far The First Omen will wind back the timeline, but we can surely expect to get the full, gory details of Robert and Katherine Thorn’s switched-at-birth son. The Antichrist is returning, folks, and there »

Joe Russo Says 'Captain America: Civil War' Got Greenlit After Warner Bros. Announced 'Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice'

28 April 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While some superfans might try to deny it, Marvel has a formula, and it's one that has served them very, very well. To date, their superhero movies have more or less followed a broad template, with just enough room to allow filmmakers to add their own creative touches, while adjusting to the needs of each character. However, "Captain America: Civil War" shakes things up, and for the first time, pits the heroes against each other, and forces them to reckon with the far reaching consequences of the actions they've taken. But you might be surprised to learn it was thanks to a rival studio that Kevin Feige decided to pull the trigger. Speaking with THR, 'Civil War' co-director Joe Russo says it was WB's announcement of Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel/The Dark Knight showdown that spurred Marvel to push ahead with 'Civil War,' and make something different from what they've done before, »

How long will the Superhero Era last? Searching for clues in the history of family comedies

26 April 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In a few weeks, with the arrival of Captain America: Civil War, one more superhero film will march on the box office and swallow the planet’s culture whole. And once again, we will ask: how long can this go on? Not long ago, a person could go to the multiplex in the middle months of the year and barely glimpse a superhero. 10 years ago, in between Superman and X-Men, there was still plenty of room for pirates, cars, spies, and gangsters. 20 years ago, there wasn’t a cape to be found in the movie theaters and we made do with aliens, tornadoes, hard-charging lawyers, and Renée Zellweger. These days, however, from March to September, you can’t go near the multiplex without getting slapped in the face by an airborne cape. Nothing lasts forever, of course, but the superhero genre has already far outlived fad status. So how long »

Christopher Nolan and his impact on comic book movies

24 April 2016 4:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Comic book movies are getting darker and grittier in some quarters. That's down to Christopher Nolan, right? Well, not quite...

If someone were to say the words 'Nolanisation of comic book movies' to you, it might conjur up images incredibly serious, laughter-free movies with a dark visual palette. The word 'gritty' would be used. Furthermore, Christopher Nolan has arguably had as big an impact on comic book movies as anyone over the last decade, and many are keen to follow in his path. Thus, goes the theory, comic book movies - and blockbusters in general - are favouring dark and gritty.

And yet, on rewatching The Dark Knight trilogy, it becomes immediately apparent that Christopher Nolan's own work doesn't entirely align with this.

My own personal frame of reference is, as ever, Doctor Who. In the 1980s, two stories – Earthshock and The Caves Of Androzani – became »

‘Jungle Book’ Dominating ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’ at U.S. Box Office

23 April 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Jungle Book” remains dominant at the U.S. box office, heading for an estimated $62 million for its second weekend — more than triple the opening of fairy tale “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” at about $20 million.

Disney’s “The Jungle Book” pulled in $16.5 million at 4,028 locations on Friday, its eighth day of release, towering over the opening day of Universal’s “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” with $7.3 million at 3,791 sites.

Should the estimate hold, “The Jungle Book” will have posted the best second weekend of 2016, topping the $56.5 million second frame for “Deadpool,” and will wind up the weekend with about $192 millon after 10 days.

“The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” a prequel to 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman,” generated a B+ CinemaScore from audiences amid mostly negative reviews with 17% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Recent forecasts had projected an opening in the $22 million to $25 million range while “The Jungle Book” was expected to »

Movie Review: The Huntsman: Winter’s War

22 April 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s easy to forget about 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman. Even though the film went on to gross nearly $400 million worldwide and was moderately received, it got lost in the shuffle of other huge blockbusters like The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, The Hunger Games, and Skyfall. It was just not very memorable, and although the announcement of a sequel from Universal was not very surprising, it was surprising that they would not bring back Snow White herself, Kristen Stewart, and instead focus on the Huntsman, Chris Hemsworth. A cheating scandal with the film’s director, Rupert Sanders, is seen as the reasoning behind the decision, but it still seems odd that Universal would take that type of gamble when trying to build a franchise. No matter how strange the decision might seem, the world has been given another Snow White/Huntsman movie four years later in the »

Advice for the new Pennywise: Take a cue from Heath Ledger's Joker

22 April 2016 10:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It was only a matter of time before I welcomed Dread Central founder and editor-in-chief Uncle Creepy (not his Christian name!) to Nightmare Fuel, and this week was the week! For those not in the know, Creepy's real name is Steve Barton, and over the past few years the horror maestro has added "film producer" to his resume with his work on the excellent Nightmare on Elm Street documentary Never Sleep Again and the horror-comedy anthology Zombieworld. (Next up: the monster-movie anthology flick Monsterland, slated to hit VOD and DVD on June 7th.) This week, talk turned to the long-developing, two-part adaptation of Stephen King's It, which is rumored to begin shooting this summer in Toronto with director Andres Muschietti (Mama) at the helm. While Steve and I both agreed that the 1990 TV version left much to be desired, it remains legendary for Tim Curry's terrifying performance as Pennywise the Clown, »
