Maybe Christian Bale wasn't quite ready to permanently park the Batmobile after all. When The Dark Knight Rises actor hung up his cape at the end of the Christopher Nolan-directed trilogy, a lot of people mourned the loss of a great Batman. It turns out, Bale was sad, too! He admitted to Empire magazine that at first he had some regrets about leaving the franchise. "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, 'Oh, go on… Let's do another,'" he admitted. "So when I heard there was someone else doing it, there was a moment where I just stopped and stared into nothing for half an hour." Now »
Although Christopher Nolan.s Dark Knight trilogy was a tremendous success, its last entry is still heavily debated among fans. Many consider The Dark Knight Rises to be the weakest entry of the series and believe it doesn.t fit thematically with its predecessors. Among the issues often discussed is the film.s main villain, Bane. Although Tom Hardy was intimidating as the League of Shadows strongman, some take issue with his role in the film - specifically that he has only loosely adapted from the comic book incarnation, the gaps in his plan and his anticlimactic death. However, there.s a new fan theory that not only puts Bane in an entirely new light, but paints the entire movie in a new light: Bane wasn.t a villain at all, he was on Batman.s side the entire time! Reddit user ciociosanvstar has posted a message on the "Fan »
Christian Bale now admits that he was "jealous" when he heard that Ben Affleck would be taking over the role of Batman. Even though he had always said "The Dark Knight Rises" would be his third and final time as the Caped Crusader, he did start entertaining the idea of a return. He says, "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, ‘Oh 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 into nothing for half an hour." Affleck will star with Henry Cavill in "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice" next year.

If we go back before the huge success of The Dark Knight (2008) and the media-hyped excitement of The Dark Knight Rises (2012), there still lives a pure gem from Christopher Nolan in the shape of Batman Begins (2005).
Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) brought our cave and mansion dwelling hero to the big screen in a way no-one had ever expected and those two movies, very specifically, still stand up to the endlessly changeable tests of time. When Joel Schumacher took up the reigns for the likes of Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997), none of us ever thought that the Bat-man would make such an ambitious return some years later when Christopher Nolan turned up with an absolute game-changer for both his back catalogue and the superhero film industry.
Batman Begins remains one of the best of the last 11 years with a truly tremendous origin story that’s swathed in truth, »

Nobody was more emotional about Ben Affleck as Batman than Christian Bale. The actor chose to end his tenure as the caped crusader after 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, but Bale was stunned (even envious!) to learn that Affleck had been cast as the masked vigilante in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie. "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, 'Oh go on… Let’s do another,'" [...] »
In a new interview with Empire, Bale – arguably one of the best Batman portrayers – admitted to being "jealous" of Affleck's casting in the forthcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, scheduled for a March 25, 2016 release.

"I've got to admit initially, even though I felt it was the right time to stop, there was always a bit of me going, ‘Oh go on … Let's do another,'" Bale said in the interview, excerpted by Comic Book Movie. "So when I heard there was someone else doing it, there was a moment where I just stopped and stared into nothing for half an hour."
More than a year after Affleck landed the role, Bale seems to finally be coming to terms with the fact that his days as the Dark Knight are behind him. (He »
Oscar Isaac, so hot right now. Oscar Isaac. He may have been snubbed by the Academy, not receiving an Oscar nod for his brilliant performance in Inside Llewyn Davis, but that was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Not only will Isaac be seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Deadline is reporting that the actor has officially signed on to star in yet another gigantic geek property. Isaac will take on the villainous role of the ancient mutant Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse. The Dark Knight Rises’ Tom Hardy was previously rumored to be up for the role. This news comes on the heels of reports last week that Fox is narrowing down their choices for actors to play younger versions of Jean Grey and Cyclops in the upcoming 1980s set sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past, which will continue to follow the X-Men: First Class cast. »

The Expendables 3 didn’t do too well at the box office, saved only by international takings. It didn’t do too well with us here at Flickering Myth either, and you can see why here and here. And it seems that the big man himself, Sylvester Stallone, agreed. In an interview with Crave Online (which you can read here), the action star is asked if future instalments will be R-rated:
“Absolutely unequivocally yes. I believe it was a horrible miscalculation on everyone’s part in trying to reach a wider audience, but in doing such, diminish the violence that the audience expects. I’m quite certain it won’t happen again.”
Phew. Lets hope that he sticks to that when EX4 rolls around. At least he lost that awful moustache.

Even though Christian Bale said he was done playing the Dark Knight after The Dark Knight Rises, it seems like there was still a little bit a part of him that wasn’t ready to completely give it up. In a recent interview with Empire Magazine the actor was asked how he felt when he first learned about Ben Affleck being cast as the new Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Apparently, he was just as shocked as the rest of us.
"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, 'Oh 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 into nothing for half an hour.

Nobody ever wants to hear that their ex has found another lover. But we all react to said news differently. When it comes to actors and their former roles, the connection can be equally intimate . and equally tough to get over. Just ask Christian Bale about the time he he found out someone else was stepping into Batman.s cape and cowl. It wasn.t pretty. Christian Bale, of course, played Bruce Wayne and Batman for three movies with Christopher Nolan. They brought their trilogy to a close with The Dark Knight Rises, even though Bale admitted to Empire Magazine recently (via ComicBookMovie) that he kind of wanted to "do another." Still, it wasn.t meant to be, and Warner Bros. tapped Ben Affleck to step into the iconic role for Zack Snyder.s world-building Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. And how did Bale react when he heard the »
Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale and now....Ben Affleck. By the time "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice" arrives it will be five actors playing Bruce Wayne/Batman in just under thirty years. It speaks both to the viability of the character and the constant reinvention the franchise has gone through. But arguably, the peak thus far has been Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. Together with Christian Bale, they created a Batman worthy of the comic mythology, grounded in reality and stripped of the more cartoony takes in previous efforts. Many people wanted more after "The Dark Knight Rises" -- as it turns out, so did Bale. With the actor now doing the rounds for "Exodus: Gods And Kings," it was inevitable that he would be asked about Affleck taking over the cowl, and rather than the standard I-wish-him-luck speech, Bale was candid about the »

As with many of the best film discoveries in my life, I went in to see Dredd with low expectations. I’d been invited and figured I might as well go, but the idea of another cinematic crack at the Judge? The scaled-down, rubbery-looking costumes and the prospect of an eyeball-squeezing 3D presentation weren’t enough to attract my interest. Once the lights went down, that all changed. I found myself sealed into a greasy and violent world that lives on in my scorched brainpan to this day. It may not be the greatest movie ever made, but of its type Dredd is a minor classic, evoking the spirit of the book in a way Stallone couldn’t manage whilst building its own gritty, low budget vibe. Of everything I’ve seen at the pictures over the last decade or so, this is the one that surprised and inspired me more than any other. »

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 »
Interstellar, Christopher Nolan’s dystopian space odyssey starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, is in many ways the Nolan movie we’ve had coming since the director first stepped into the realm of blockbuster filmmaking. It’s ambitious, loud, unapologetically intellectual, occasionally awe-inspiring and narratively twisty, and confidently, proudly so on all counts.
It’s also po-faced, ham-fisted, over-long and pretty much hollow. These are aspects that represent the worst of Nolan, and they’ve never been as prominent as they are in Interstellar. The film has some great features: there’s a wonderful score from Hans Zimmer and his church organ, an achingly emotive performance from McConaughey in the lead role, and a collection of space sequences to rival those of last year’s Gravity. It’s also probably Nolan’s most personal film.
The positives in the film are challenged, however, by »

X-Men: Apocalypse – director Bryan Singer’s hotly anticipated follow-up to this year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past – won’t hit theaters until summer 2016, but with production expected to start sometime early next year, we’re already getting a wave of potential new casting information. This past week we received word that Singer was looking at a handful of actors for younger versions of Cyclops and Jean Grey, and now we’ve got an update on who may play the titular villain himself.
Last we heard, 20th Century Fox was looking at The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy for the role of Apocalypse, an ancient, immortal mutant with powers that definitely suit his name, but a new report suggests that that may not be the case. According to TheWrap’s Jeff Sneider, three names are being tossed around for the role, and Hardy isn’t one of them. While »

There's not a lot to this -- just a fan-favourite actress revealing that she really likes a fan-favourite character. Lawrence tells IGN that Batman is the on-screen hero she likes best, and while she seems to adore Christopher Nolan's middle film in his trilogy, she found The Dark Knight Rises to be "ehh". Still, I think many of us can relate to her reaction upon leaving the theatre having seen The Dark Knight for the first time (the machine-gun hands thing, not the underwear thing). The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson »
After a long and exciting built-up to the release of Christopher Nolan’s first flick since the controversial Batman finale The Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar – starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine and Jessica Chastain – blasted off, launched itself into the depths of space, disappeared through a wormhole and has… found itself met with middling reviews? Surely not?
At least, there has been a noticeable lack of “super positive” reviews; a lot less than Nolan fans presumably expected, what with even the movie’s most adamant fans – critics inducing – citing plot holes and a confusing ending amongst the many reasons why Interstellar failed to provide movie-goers with the totally immersive and modern day 2001: A Space Odyssey they’d desperately hoped for.
Which means that a lot of the coverage on Interstellar over the course of the past two weeks has focused on the negative aspects – the things »
