Rumoured details about Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight from Batman v Superman

29 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Affleck’s personal trainer Rehan Jalali has allegedly revealed some details about Affleck’s incarnation of the Dark Knight from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As always the sources claiming that Jalali leaked this are vague and this may just be pure speculation. Nevertheless, the report claims the following:

There are two Batsuits (we’ve seen them both before — he has a traditional Batsuit, and an armored Batsuit like in “The Dark Knight Returns”). The armored suit has Kryptonite all over it, and it can shoot missiles. There are two Batmobiles. Affleck has a shirtless scene as Bruce Wayne to show off his new physique. The shirtless scene is beautifully shot and shows Affleck overlooking a destroyed city (probably Metropolis?).

Most of this information we had already gathered from seeing the leaked trailer, stills released by the studio, and other rumours. Kryptonite has yet to be introduced into the series, »

New Batman v Superman set photos show Wayne family crypt

26 October 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Some new images from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have hit the web courtesy of Batman-News, and they show an iconic DC Comics location: the Wayne family crypt. Is this a sign that we’ll be getting flashbacks to the murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne? Just about every Batman adaptation has its interpretation of that scene, after all. Or, does the grown-up Bruce pay a visit to his parents at some point during the film? Only time will tell…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016 with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer arriving before the end of the year?

24 October 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact that the film itself is still some fifteen months away from release, Dark Knight fan site Batman-on-Film is reporting that the first ‘Batman heavy’ teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is ready to go, and that we’ll be seeing it before the curtain falls on 2014…

According to the site: “The first teaser trailer for the film is complete and ready to go. The overt hint I got from these folks is that the teaser will be revealed this Fall along with a November or December film release (and online, of course). I have no idea to which specific film it may be “attached,” but New Line’s (which is Warner Bros.’ sister company) The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is being released on December 17, 2014. By the way Batman fans, I’ve heard that this teaser is ‘Batman heavy.'”

Patrick Stewart to play a killer white supremacist in 'Blue Ruin' director’s next

22 October 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The genial, Instagram-loving Sir Patrick Stewart isn’t the first actor one might think of for a “ murderous skinhead” part, but his cranium does come fit for the job. Broad Green Pictures (Bgp) announced late Tuesday that the “X-Men” and “Star Trek” actor has joined the cast of “Green Room,” the next thriller from “Blue Ruin” writer-director Jeremy Sauliner (there’s a pattern there, I just can’t put my finger on it…). Currently shooting in Portland, Oregon, the film stars Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkat star as a punk rock band cornered into a secluded venue after witnessing a horrific act of violence perpetrated by white supremacists. As the gang attempts to eliminate all witnesses, the trio are forced to fight for their lives. Think “The Decline of Western Civilization” meets “Straw Dogs.” Stewart will play the leader of the bloodthirsty band of haters. Mark Webber, “Blue Ruin” star Macon Blair, »

Ray Fisher didn’t know about Cyborg solo movie until the official announcement from Warner Bros.

21 October 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ray Fisher – who is set to portray Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in the DC movie universe – was just as surprised as fans when it was announced there would be a Cyborg standalone film in 2020. The actor found out at the same time the fans when Warner Bros. and DC announced their film line up last week.

Fisher told Entertainment Weekly: “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character, when I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.”

Newcomer Fisher will first be seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will likely appear in both Justice League movies before taking the lead of his own movie in 2020.

So look out for Fisher »

Hannibal finds its Lady Murasaki in The Wolverine’s Tao Okamoto

19 October 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hannibal is going to get even crazier in its third season, as Bryan Fuller is now pulling from Thomas Harris’ prequel novel Hannibal Rising for inspiration and new characters. The first character to join the mix is the mysterious Lady Murasaki, Hannibal Lecter’s Japanese aunt, who will be played by The Wolverine and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice actress Tao Okamoto.

Deadline describes her role as follows:

“Okamoto will play the dark and mysterious Lady Murasaki, who possesses an alluring and classical beauty with a dark secret.”

Lecter’s relationship with Murasaki is pretty dark and complicated, as the two are quasi-romantic. Judging by the way showrunner Bryan Fuller has pulled from the source material thus far, we won’t get a direct translation, but he certainly won’t shy away from the darker psychological implications of their relationship.

Yeah, Hannibal can’t return soon enough.

Tao Okamoto Joins Hannibal Season 3 As Lady Murasaki

18 October 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bryan Fuller has some exciting things planned for Hannibal‘s hotly-anticipated third season, which includes some intriguing new characters from Thomas Harris’ books. While the series has deviated greatly from the source material thus far, Fuller has taken it upon himself to draw inspiration and story beats from novel like Hannibal and The Silence of the Lambs at will, and is tackling the prequel novel Hannibal Rising next.

That, of course, comes with the inclusion of Lady Murasaki, Hannibal’s mysterious Japanese aunt. According to Deadline, Murasaki will be played by The Wolverine and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice actress Tao Okamoto. The site describes her role as follows:

“Okamoto will play the dark and mysterious Lady Murasaki, who possesses an alluring and classical beauty with a dark secret.”

More rumours that Jena Malone is playing Robin in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

17 October 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of weeks back, rumour resurfaced claiming that Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder for the role of Carrie Kelley (a.k.a. The Dark Knight Returns’ Robin) in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, stemming from the fact that the actress had died her hair red – much like the character in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

Well, Variety is now quoting an alleged extra from the top-secret film, who has apparently told local news station Wilx-10 that “the character of Robin is now female”. This certainly adds some credence to the original report, unless the “extra” is just making it up to get themselves on the local news, of course…

Would you like to see Carrie Kelley in Batman v Superman, and if so, is Jena Malone a good choice for the part?

Batman v Superman producer talks Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight and building to Justice League

14 October 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having served as producer on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy, Charles Roven is now involved with the latest incarnation of the Caped Crusader, as Zack Snyder’s brings together Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel for the eagerly-anticipated 2016 sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. During a Hollywood Masters interview for Lmu Film School, Roven has now spoken about the casting of Ben Affleck, as well as stating how this interpretation of Bruce Wayne / Batman differs from previous versions, and teasing the expansion of the DC movie universe leading up to the Justice League movie.

“We knew that we wanted a very mature Batman, because we wanted to juxtapose him against this young Superman, so we wanted a guy who was tougher, rugged, had signs of life, had lived a hard life,” states Roven. “We wanted the guy to have chops, for sure. »

Review: Keanu Reeves shoots all the faces in the preposterous pulpy 'John Wick'

13 October 2014 2:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Austin - When the lights went down in the theater for the Fantastic Fest debut of "John Wick," I had no expectations at all for the film. It never occurred to me that it would end up being one of the most enjoyable things I saw there and a genuinely exciting announcement for a pair of pulp action filmmakers. Chad Stahelski was the stuntman who doubled for Keanu Reeves on "The Matrix," and since then, he's done "The Replacements," both "Matrix" sequels, "Thumbsucker," "Constantine," and "Man Of Tai Chi" with Reeves, and they've developed a strong collaborative relationship. David Leitch, who co-directed the film with Stahelski, has worked on dozens of movies with him in the stunt department. They've both worked as second-unit actual unit directors on films like "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Escape Plan," "Safe," "The Wolverine," Parker," "Ninja Assassin," and the upcoming "Jurassic World."

Ben Affleck talks Daredevil and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

5 October 2014 6:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Affleck has been doing the promotional rounds for his latest film Gone Girl, and of course much of the conversation has shifted to his upcoming role as The Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Affleck has been reluctant to give anything away, but he did take a moment to express his regrets over Daredevil during an interview with NPR, as well as stating how he feels confident about the 2016 DC ensemble…

“Indeed I have regrets about Daredevil. I have regrets about all the movies that I don’t think were executed properly… Look, if I thought we were remaking Daredevil, I’d be out there picketing myself … and that goes for other movies as well that I haven’t been happy with. You know, I’m hard on myself and I have exacting standards and I want to do excellent work and I don’t always succeed, »
