Over 30,000 People Sign Petition for McU to Cast Danny DeVito as Wolverine, Because Why the Hell Not

Over 30,000 People Sign Petition for McU to Cast Danny DeVito as Wolverine, Because Why the Hell Not
A petition urging the Marvel Cinematic Universe to cast Danny DeVito in the role of Wolverine has gone viral this week after earning over 30,000 signatures and counting. DeVito, who most recently appeared in Tim Burton’s live-action “Dumbo” remake and continues to star as Frank on Fxx’s beloved comedy series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” is no stranger to the world of comic book movies as he appeared as the Penguin opposite Michael Keaton and Michelle Pfeiffer in Burton’s “Batman Returns.”

While the petition is the equivalent of a viral joke, it does speak to the larger question of what Disney and Marvel Studios will decide to do with the superheroes that Fox previously owned such as the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and more. Now that Disney owns Fox, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has free reign over many characters they were previously unable to feature in its movies.

Seth Meyers on looking beyond the ‘day-to-day politics’ on ‘Late Night,’ plus ‘SNL’ and ‘Documentary Now!’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“There is such an ability for the news out of Washington to be so crazy as to make it hard to remember,” admits “Late Night” host Seth Meyers. So even though he skewers the administration of Donald Trump on a nightly basis, “ultimately what stands out to me, as far as memories from the show, are things that are outside of the day-to-day politics of the news.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Meyers above.

Willem Dafoe Says ‘Lighthouse’ Co-Star Robert Pattinson Has the Perfect Chin to Play Batman

Warner Bros. has not officially announced Robert Pattinson as the new Batman, but the beloved “High Life” actor is currently the frontrunner to take over the role made famous on the big screen by Michael Keaton and Christian Bale. As previously reported, Pattinson is entering final talks to sign on as the lead in Matt Reeves’ upcoming 2021 tentpole “The Batman.” The role would give Pattinson the biggest role of his career and a second major upcoming studio gig after Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet.”

Pattinson was in attendance at the Cannes Film Festival this week to premiere his new movie, “The Lighthouse.” The Robert Eggers-directed psychodrama debuted in Directors’ Fortnight to critical acclaim, with Pattinson and co-star Willem Dafoe earning instant Oscar buzz for their performances. Pattinson deflected all Batman questions, telling IndieWire’s awards editor Anne Thompson with a smile, “I am only answering questions about ‘The Lighthouse.’”

Petition To Replace Robert Pattinson As Batman Is Nearly At Its Goal

To say that the internet was set ablaze following the reported casting of Robert Pattinson as Batman is an understatement. Though some are willing to give him a fair shot, many others fail to realize he’s been in films other than Twilight. Rest assured, the guy is a professional actor and could probably pull it off. Still, knee-jerk reactions may be premature because he’s yet to be confirmed by the studio.

Regardless, a petition to remove Pattinson from the role of the Dark Knight has emerged online. Though these things never, ever cause actual change, it’s amassed 4,892 signatures at the time of this writing. The goal is 5,000, so it may surpass that by the time you read this.

Needless to say, this isn’t the first time moviegoers have second-guessed the Batman film franchise. Over thirty years ago, people were burning Michael Keaton in effigy when he

Alex Brightman (‘Beetlejuice’): ‘You’d be a sociopath if musical theatre came naturally to you’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“You’d be a sociopath if musical theatre came naturally to you,” jokes Alex Brightman. He is referencing the highly rehearsed and precisely calibrated technical aspects underneath his Tony-nominated turn as the title character in “Beetlejuice.” Watch the exclusive video interview above.

Brightman earned his second Tony nomination for playing the pinstriped demon. The musical has an astounding amount of technical elements to juggle, even though the actor doesn’t let the audience see him sweat. “It’s a musical, a magic show and a costume-change party” he explains. Brightman must keep all these elements running smoothly while giving an organic performance.

Cannes Correspondences #8: Tarantino's Hollywood Elegy and Bdsm Mourning

The Notebook is covering Cannes with an on-going correspondence between critic Leonardo Goi and editor Daniel Kasman.Once Upon a Time... in HollywoodDear Danny, In an interview with Esquire ahead of the world premiere of Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino said something I kept going back to all throughout his latest feature and Palme d’Or contender. “I think of it like my memory piece. Alfonso [Cuarón] had Roma and Mexico City, 1970. I had L. A. and 1969. This is me. (…) And this is my love letter to L.A.” Yesterday, May 21, Cannes woke up to Tarantino’s day. I’d been told there would be days like this, days when the buzz around the Palais du Cinema felt stronger, and the press room would empty out earlier than usual, with critics and festival-goers queuing and fighting for a spot in what was trumpeted as the film of the

Meet Keanu Reeves’ Duke Caboom, your new favorite Canadian hero, in latest ‘Toy Story 4’ trailer [Watch]
Hot on the heels of “John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum” crushing the box office, Keanu Reeves has a new hero for you to meet: Duke Caboom. He is Canada’s greatest stuntman and he is here to save the day in the new “Toy Story 4” trailer.

When Bonnie’s new spork toy Forky (Tony Hale) goes missing, Bo Peep (Annie Potts) calls on the services of Duke, an Evel Knievel-esque, motorcycle-riding daredevil who is quick to show off his flexible poses on his sweet bike. His motto is “Let’s caboom!”, obviously, which he declares before he takes Woody (Tom Hanks) on a giant leap across shelves in a toy store.

Duke doesn’t get too much screen time in the trailer, which is just as well — gotta keep ’em wanting more, you know? But he seems cool, funny and nice, like all Canadians. And having a Canadian icon

The Batman Hopefuls Rumored to Endure Intense Casting Process

The Batman Hopefuls Rumored to Endure Intense Casting Process
Robert Pattinson, or whoever it ends up being, is being put through a very rigorous and detailed casting process in order to land the lead role in The Batman. This project has been in the works for several years now, originally with Ben Affleck attached to direct and star in it. Now, Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) is on board to write and direct, with the search on for a new actor to assume cape and cowl duties. And, apparently, Warner Bros. is taking this process rather seriously, as one might expect.

Last week, we got word that former Twilight star Robert Pattinson was in talks to be our new Batman, with many outlets making it seem like it was a done deal. As it turns out, that's not the case, as Tolkien and Dark Phoenix star Nicholas Hoult is also in the running, with other

Spider-man: Far From Home Clip Confirms Mj Knows Peter Parker is Spider-Man

A new clip from Spider-Man: Far From Home has been released and it confirms that Mj (Zendaya) knows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is Spider-Man. There was a clip that teased that aspect of the story in the new trailer for the film, but a lot of fans thought that Mj was just joking with Peter and that they were just going to brush it off as a joke. But, that’s obviously not the case.

In the clip, Ned (Jacob Batalon) walks into a room while Peter is suiting up in his Stealth Suit with Mj in the room and at that point he admits to Ned that Mj knows about his secret identity. Mj is quick to point out that she figured it out on her own.

Check out the brief clip below and let us know what you think about the fact that Mj knows Peter is Spider-Man.

‘The Whistlers’ Review: A Delightful Romanian Twist on ‘Ocean’s 11’ — Cannes

‘The Whistlers’ Review: A Delightful Romanian Twist on ‘Ocean’s 11’ — Cannes
Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu makes playful movies with a lot to say. From the chatty historical inquiries of his debut “12:08 East of Bucharest” to the deadpan musings on the language of justice in “Police, Adjective” to the ethics of filmmaking in “When Evening Falls in Bucharest or Metabolism,” Porumboiu has managed to mine compelling ideas out of slow-burn narrative techniques loaded with unpredictability. With 2015’s heartwarming father-son story “The Treasure” — in which the roving narrative builds to sentimental payoff — he started to enrich his style with more approachable methods. That proclivity grows even stronger with his entertaining noir “The Whistlers,” a polished mashup of genre motifs that suggests what might happen if the “Ocean’s 11” gang assembled on the Canary Islands.

That’s right: One of the directors tied to the so-called Romanian New Wave of the aughts, when dreary masterpieces like “4 Months, 3 Weeks, and Two Days” and “The Death of Mr. Lazarescu

Fans Want A Michael Keaton/Robert Pattinson Batman Beyond Movie

This week brought the shocking news that Robert Pattinson is likely going to be the next Dark Knight as reports say he’s director Matt Reeves’ top choice for The Batman. Not everyone can see the former Twilight star as Bruce Wayne, though, but a neat compromise has been devised by one Twitter user and it’s gone down a treat.

Instead of the 33-year-old actor playing Bruce, how about having him as Terry McGinnis, the legacy hero of Batman Beyond? And when it comes to who should portray the retired Wayne opposite him, there’s only one man for the job – Tim Burton’s Batman, Michael Keaton.

The idea was pitched by writer Chris Hastings on social media, and fans couldn’t get enough of it.

Michael Uslan on who’s the star of Batman movies

  • Comicmix
Michael E. Uslan is, among many other things, an executive producer of the Batman films. This post is reprinted with his permission.

–ComicMix Staff

I’ve always believed that the star of a Batman movie is… Batman. For me, it is not about hiring a big box office draw like making Tom Cruise The Batman for a generation. It is all rather about making Bruce Wayne come to life. Because of that conceptually, the most important aspect of casting is not necessarily the actor, but rather the filmmaker. Does the filmmaker have a love for and understanding of the character? Does he or she have a passion for the character? Does the filmmaker have a vision for the character and do you believe he or she can execute that vision? Ultimately, more than track record, it comes down to trust.

Christopher Nolan is a genius in my book. Part of his genius is,

Ben Affleck’s Batman Film Would’ve Pitted The Dark Knight Against Deathstroke

With all of the talk surrounding the latest casting of Gotham City’s masked crusader, it’s interesting to reflect on what might have been if Ben Affleck had stuck around and played Batman for just a little while longer. While it’s impossible to know exactly what the studio had in mind, fans now have somewhat of an idea of what that future could have looked like thanks to David Betancourt.

According to the reporter, Affleck’s first standalone feature as the superhero would have pitted Bruce Wayne against Deathstroke. Batman’s dreaded foe was also supposed to have a standalone movie of his own, but that appears to have stalled.

It remains to be seen whether or not this same idea is used for the next Batman film now that Robert Pattinson has been cast as the billionaire vigilante. More likely than not, though, the studio will decide

Fans Aren't Happy About Robert Pattinson Playing Batman, But Let's Let Matt Reeves Make the Movie He Wants to Make!

Remember when Tim Burton cast Michael Keaton as Batman? The fans initially hated the fact he was cast as the Dark Knight, but then look what happened. He turned out to be an awesome Batman!

Remember when Heath Ledger was cast as The Joker in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight? The fans complained about it and didn’t think he would make a good Joker, but then look what happened. He was so freakin’ good that he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

Hell, when Hugh Jackman was first cast as Wolverine in the X-Men films the fans were upset! There are more examples of this trend of fans complaining about actors being cast in superhero roles, and now it’s happening all over again with the possibility of Robert Pattinson playing Batman in director Matt ReevesThe Batman.

Robert Pattinson Not Locked In For Batman Yet, Nicholas Hoult Still In The Running

News broke last night that Robert Pattinson is in talks to be the latest actor to play Bruce Wayne in Matt ReevesThe Batman. Fans are already up in arms about the left-field casting choice – just as they were about Michael Keaton, Heath Ledger, Ben Affleck, etc. – but it seems that “Battinson” isn’t a done deal yet, as there’s another British actor still in the running for the lucrative part.

Shortly following Variety’s initial report of Pattinson’s hiring, Deadline changed the story somewhat by clarifying that the 29-year-old star has yet to finalize his deal with Warner Bros. According to them, he remains the frontrunner for the next Batman, but X-Men‘s Nicholas Hoult, who can currently be seen in cinemas in the title role in biopic Tolkien, is another favorite of both Reeves and studio execs.

This has also been corroborated by The Hollywood Reporter,
