Anne Hathaway on Advice She’d Give to Zoe Kravtiz’s Catwoman: “She’s a Perfect Choice”
While you might have a favorite big screen Batman, Joker, Superman, etc., one of the most exciting parts about having multiple actors take on the same character is seeing how their interpretations differ. We have multiple stellar and unique Batmans, Jokers and Supermans because of it, just to name a few. Now, hopes are high the same will continue to be true of Catwoman, too.

Michael Keaton was Intimidated by Jack Nicholson on Batman Set

Michael Keaton was Intimidated by Jack Nicholson on Batman Set
It’s kind of interesting to learn that actors can be intimidated by other actors, but it does happen. This isn’t to say that some actors are actively trying to intimidate their costars, but that has happened in the past as well. But in the case of Jack Nicholson and Micheal Keaton it was simply due to the fact that Nicholson was a well-established and very powerful star when he took on the part of Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989, and Keaton, who had already starred in a couple of movies, was still getting his legs under him when

Locke & Key Director Would Love to Take on Marvel's Blade Reboot

Locke & Key Director Would Love to Take on Marvel's Blade Reboot
Following the recent news that the upcoming Blade reboot, which is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has been on the hunt for writers, one director has now thrown their hat into the ring to helm the project. Locke & Key director Mark Tonderai recently explained why he thinks he'd be the perfect fit for Marvel's Blade reboot and praised the first big screen iteration of the character starring Wesley Snipes.

"I'd love to do Blade. Blade, for me, is right up my street in terms of my sensibilities. I also think Stephen Norrington did a brilliant job with the first incarnation of it, and I'd argue that it was the first, other than Tim Burton's Batman, superhero film that really revolutionised movies to where we are now. So, Blade, I would absolutely love to do."

Gotham Knights Reveals New Robin Art And Character Details

Gotham Knights Reveals New Robin Art And Character Details
Gotham Knights developer WB Games Montréal seemingly isn’t quite ready to share a concrete release date for next year’s co-op adventure title set in the Batman universe, but it certainly isn’t averse to sharing new details about the game’s crew of iconic heroes. While we’re still firmly of the belief that the Dark Knight isn’t quite the corpse he claimed to be back in August’s reveal trailer, Bruce Wayne’s alter ego is, at the very least, nowhere to be seen by the events of Gotham Knights, having trusted the protection of the city to his four most talented students.

Similarly well versed in the life of crime fighting vigilantism, Batgirl, Red Hood, Nightwing and Robin find themselves with no other option than to team up root out the evil embedded in Gotham’s underbelly, all of which have their own preferred method of getting the job done.

Hear Danny Elfman’s First Solo Pop Song in Nearly 40 Years, ‘Happy’

Hear Danny Elfman’s First Solo Pop Song in Nearly 40 Years, ‘Happy’
Decades of Halloweens have come and gone since Danny Elfman — film composer extraordinaire and one-time Oingo Boingo frontman — last released a solo pop song. But now he is returning with a sardonic new single, “Happy,” in anticipation of the spooky day.

“I’m so happy — everything is crumbling,” he sings over a slow-building creepy synth line. The accompanying video is fittingly macabre as a CGI Elfman morphs into a disturbing doll and a melty skeleton as he sings the mordant words.

“I always enjoyed Halloween because it was a night to let loose,

Batman: The Animated Series - Why We Need A Reboot (& Why We Need A New Series)

Batman: The Animated Series - Why We Need A Reboot (& Why We Need A New Series)
With ennui setting in around the lackluster series of the Dcau, and the announcement that the most recent Batman film will see a return to the IP's noir roots, many fans of the Caped Crusader have been wondering if they'll soon get a reboot of one of the most famous Batman narratives of all time: Batman: The Animated Series.

Though it only ran for a handful of seasons beginning in 1992, the series is widely considered to be the best imagining of the Dark Knight ever created. There are many reasons to suggest that continuing the series would be a good idea, but should its legacy be potentially tarnished when a new series could be developed instead?

"The Batman" - Bat Lives Matter

Shooting continues on Warner Bros live-action feature "The Batman", starring "Twilight" vampire Robert Pattinson as DC Comics 'Caped Crusader':

"Following a hiatus for 'Covid-19' quarantine precautions, filming has resumed on 'The Batman' in the UK", said Warners.

Production initially started back up September 2020 after a 5 1/2-month 'hiatus'. But it was 3 days into shooting that Pattinson turned up positive with the virus and production shut down again.

Cast of the new film also includes Jeffrey Wright, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, Jayme Lawson, John Turturro and Peter Sarsgaard.

"It's very much a point of view-driven, 'noir Batman' tale," said Reeves.

"It's told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional.

"It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films.

"The comics have a history of that. He's supposed

Multiple Titans Spinoffs Rumored To Be In The Works For HBO Max

Multiple Titans Spinoffs Rumored To Be In The Works For HBO Max
Warner Bros. are making a serious effort to position their lineup of DC Comics content as the cornerstone of HBO Max, and there are already a whole host of exciting projects in the works. Zack Snyder’s Justice League is obviously the big one, but there’s also John Cena’s The Suicide Squad spinoff, Matt Reeves’ companion show to The Batman that focuses on the Gotham City Police Department, James Wan’s Aquaman animated miniseries and J.J. Abrams’ Justice League Dark to name but a few.

It isn’t all about the new arrivals, though, as an established favorite is also shaping up to become an integral part of HBO Max’s lineup. The first two seasons may have aired on the doomed DC Universe, but Titans managed to find a huge audience after Netflix acquired the international distribution rights to the series.

Older Actors Fear Pandemic Has Made Hollywood’s Ageism Worse

Older Actors Fear Pandemic Has Made Hollywood’s Ageism Worse
While the pandemic has hit all of Hollywood hard, older actors in Hollywood are facing a perfect storm of problems as the new financial and health stresses of Covid-19 blend with the ageism that has plagued the industry for decades. One 60-something actor, who spoke to TheWrap on condition of anonymity, said that his emergency savings will run out in a few months but worries that even if he lands a new job that he will put his life at risk since he has a chronic health condition that makes him more vulnerable to the coronavirus. “If I’m lucky enough to get a role, I’m going to be really careful, but I wish I could just ride this out, he said. And like many older performers who spoke to TheWrap in recent weeks, he notes that new safety protocols on many productions have been less than foolproof — several

The Batman: Why Anarky & Mr. Freeze Could Work In This Universe

The Batman: Why Anarky & Mr. Freeze Could Work In This Universe
After some roadblocks, Matt Reeves has been covering more ground in filming his upcoming The Batman. It's been shooting in Liverpool recently, with set photos giving us looks at Bruce Wayne, Selina Kyle, Oswald Cobblepot and more leaking online. However, there's been some particular pictures making the rounds on social media stirring up some speculation over what's to potentially come down the road after this initial Batman movie.

Some posters put up seem to hint at the possible existence of two supervillains in this universe: Anarky and Mr. Freeze. Perhaps these two could be set up for later in this planned trilogy. The former could fit like a glove given the context of this soon-to-be Batman universe, though the latter will be more of a stretch, but not impossible--and the payoff could be great.

Dceu: 5 Actors Considered To Play Batman (& 5 For Wonder Woman)
After Zack Snyder kicked off the DC Extended Universe with Man of Steel, he needed to cast two more actors to join Henry Cavill’s Superman in his follow-up Batman v Superman to round out DC Comics’ holy trinity as Batman and Wonder Woman. This casting process wasn’t easy. This was the first time the trio was united on the big screen in a live-action movie.

Keanu Reeves Reportedly Eyed For Dceu’s Deathstroke

Keanu Reeves Reportedly Eyed For Dceu’s Deathstroke
In an alternate version of our reality, not unlike the one that Warner Bros. are currently planning for their shared superhero universe, Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke is an integral part of the Dceu. Having debuted in Justice League‘s post-credits scene, the actor went on to play a major role in Zack Snyder’s Part II, and proved to be a formidable foe when he faced off against Ben Affleck in The Batman.

The popularity of the character saw Manganiello headline his own blockbuster, with the origin story by The Raid‘s Gareth Evans perfectly blending a martial arts movie with the tropes of the comic book genre, firmly establishing the Magic Mike star’s take on Slade Wilson as a fan favorite. Of course, the major drawback is that none of this actually happened.

Instead, the actor’s involvement in the Dceu effectively ended after Justice League, but he

Robert Pattinson celebrates 'real-life heroes'

Robert Pattinson celebrates 'real-life heroes'
London, Oct 25 (Ians) Actor Robert Pattinson, who is currently shooting the superhero film The Batman in London, took out time to celebrate Covid-19 heroes.

He got the opportunity on Saturday at the Go Campaign's 14th annual Go Gala.

He was joined by actors Lily Collins and Ewan McGregor to help raise $1 million for Go Campaign's efforts to provide global Covid-19 relief and to fight to end racial inequality in the US, reports variety.com.

Pattinson introduced the organisation's new initiative to provide internet access, tutoring programmes and mental healthcare for young people whose education is affected by the pandemic.

He added that it is even more critical than ever to come together this year, saying "no child should have to sit on a curb to have access to education".

During the early days of lockdown, Pattinson and Collins donated to the organisation's emergency funds that were used to provide food

Jack Nicholson's Joker Had Michael Keaton 'Nervous' & 'Self-Conscious' on Batman Set

Jack Nicholson's Joker Had Michael Keaton 'Nervous' & 'Self-Conscious' on Batman Set
Jack Nicholson played Joker in Tim Burton's 1989 Batman movie opposite Michael Keaton as Batman/Bruce Wayne. At the time, Nicholson was already an established star, while Keaton was still trying to find his way. As a result, working with Nicholson caused Keaton to suffer from an attack of the nerves, as the actor revealed during an interview with Seth Meyers.

"The only thing that happened when I did the first Batman was, I was very nervous and self-conscious about being with Jack, because he's so strong on film, you know, and it ended up just being great. We became pals and everything."

Before Burton's take on the character, the live-action persona of Batman was most famous for the campy Batman tv show starring Adam West and Burt Ward. The announcement of Jack Nicholson in the role of Joker for the movie went a long way towards establishing that Burton's

Another Villain Has Reportedly Been Revealed For The Batman

Another Villain Has Reportedly Been Revealed For The Batman
Before the official cast and first plot details for The Batman had been confirmed, it was rumored that up to half a dozen members of the Dark Knight’s iconic rogues’ gallery could be appearing in the reboot. That instantly set alarm bells ringing, because anyone with even a passing interest in the superhero genre is fully aware that stuffing the plot full of bad guys very rarely if ever results in a great movie.

Matt Reeves appears to be satisfied with keeping his number of antagonists down to three, though, with Paul Dano’s Riddler, Colin Farrell’s Penguin and Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman all set to pose problems for Robert Pattinson’s rookie Caped Crusader. However, this being the first installment in a comic book franchise there’s bound to be teases and Easter Eggs that drop hints for what future installments could have in store, and we

Michael Keaton Says He Was Nervous Working With Jack Nicholson On Batman

Michael Keaton Says He Was Nervous Working With Jack Nicholson On Batman
Michael Keaton may have been playing the title character, who also happened to be one of the most famous figures in popular culture, but there’s no mistaking who was initially positioned as the real star of Tim Burton’s Batman. After all, fans were so against the idea of an actor best known for his work in the comedy genre portraying the Dark Knight that they sent hundreds of thousands of letters to Warner Bros.’ headquarters in the 1980s equivalent of cancel culture.

Jack Nicholson, on the other hand, was one of the most famous actors on the planet. The big screen legend took top billing in all of the promotional and marketing materials, and also walked away with the most lucrative deal after agreeing to take a percentage of the profits in return for lowering his usual salary. That ended up being a savvy move in the end,
