Ben Affleck Will Direct, Star In and Co-Write New ‘Batman’ Film

The Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 hasn’t even started yet, but already one of the biggest announcements of the entire weekend has made its way to the general public.

According to several sources, including SlashFilm and Deadline, Ben Affleck is getting his very own Batman movie. Even better, Affleck will apparently be directing the feature in addition to handling the lead role, and he will even contribute to the script. Details on the film are few and far between right now, but the flick is believed to be a ‘solo’ adventure existing away from Batman V

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Demolishes Expectations, Elicits Yelps Of Joy

Film: Mad Max: Fury Road
Starring: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult
Directed By: George Miller

Every once in a blue moon a summer blockbuster comes and demolishes everything that lay in its path. Mad Max: Fury Road is the film that eviscerates the history of large-scale action films. It throws the gauntlet down at the feet of filmmakers trying to break the studio mold in the past ten years. It’s a film that’s so intricately detailed and visually assaulting that you’d think the powers that be just turned a blind eye in favor of letting director George Miller (…

Warner Bros. Reveal DC Cinematic Universe Releases Through 2020

Holy bananas, Batman.

Warner Bros. has released their tentative schedule for the coming six years of DC comics in film through their newly atomized DC cinematic universe. Beginning with 2013’s Man Of Steel, the DC cinematic universe will continue with 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. On top of the upcoming film’s release years, there have been a few casting announcements as well.

Revealed at an investor meeting of all places (Warner Bros., you kind of missed out on Comic-Con), it is now known that Ezra Miller will play The Flash, though which incarnation of The Flash …

Take a Look at the New Batmobile Set to Debut in ‘Batman v. Superman’

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice feels like it’s light years away from landing into theaters, but thanks to a generous Instagram user by the name of Amacro13 who’s given us a glimpse at one of the most iconic vehicles in comic book history, waiting for the film’s March 25, 2016 release date feels all the more tolerable.

We think this modernized edition of the Batmobile looks pretty damn sharp, both literally and figuratively. I’m personally feeling this one more than some of the most recent renditions of it, but like all of the other news to come from this …

Ben Affleck’s Batman Revealed

Yesterday we were given a tease of the new Batmobile for the upcoming Batman vs. Superman. Director Zack Snyder claimed that the tarp would come off today, and boy did he deliver.

Not only have we been given a nicer shot of the Batmobile, but we have also been given our first look at Ben Affleck’s Batman. Bulked up, brooding, black, and butt-chinned, Affleck’s Batman is quite reminiscent of The Dark Knight Returns comic arc. Sporting much shorter ears, a giant bat symbol on the chest, as well as a more cloth like looking Batsuit, this is surely a …

Move Over Batman, “Trapman” is The Hero Pop Music Needs

If you have never heard of Astro Safari USA before this moment you’re about to have a very, very exciting Friday.

A lot of people have been fortunate enough to portray Batman over the last hundred years. Christian Bale, George Clooney, Adam West, an eccentric billionaire named Bruce Wayne, and more. Only one person has ever been so blessed that the unseen powers that control the universe saw fit to dub them Trapman, and fortunately for the rest of us that person has decided to share their gift for wordplay with the rest of the world via Astro Safari USA’s …

‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Release Moved To May 2016

Holy delays Batman!

In a move that is not that surprising, the upcoming DC epic, Batman vs. Superman, has been pushed back a whopping ten months, from July 2015 to May 2016. With all the news buzzing around about a possible Nightwing, Wonder Woman casting, DC cameos galore, and a massive budget, it comes as no surprise that the film’s production has been extended.

This is a massive undertaking for Warner Bros, and at times, it seems that they are trying way too hard to catch up to The Avengers with only one film under their belt. Although saddening …

Affleck’s Batman Will Redefine The Character

It seems that Ben Affleck has indulged us a little more than usual as of late, giving some insight into what we will see in DC’s upcoming Batman vs. Superman.

In a recent interview with Playboy Magazine, Affleck states that the film will portray Batman in a “way that doesn’t compete with the Bale and Chris Nolan Batman but still exists within the Batman canon. It will be an older and wiser version, particularly as he relates to Henry Cavill’s Superman character.”

With all the news surrounding the character and film as of late, it seems that Synder and …

Domain Names Hint To Possible ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Official Title

For weeks, even months now, I have written up on a lot of the awesome and exciting news surrounding Man of Steel‘s sequel, the first DC comics based film of this generation to feature a crossover between characters.

Through all the rumors, casting announcements, and everything in between, the film has only been referred to as Batman vs. Superman. While catchy and intriguing at the least, this title has never been confirmed as official, even though most, if not all of the individuals working on the film referred to it as such.

But, we now may have some …

A “Semi-Retired” Batman “Controlling Drones From The Batcave” In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

The coming weeks and months are going to prove very informative when it comes to the upcoming DC/Warner Bros. film, Batman vs. Superman. For now at least, we have something to ease the wait, and this time around it is actually really intriguing.

Daniel Alter, a producer from Warner Bros. and Relativity Media, has an interesting tweet for us fans. Reading that he cannot wait to see a “semi-retired/not speaking to Robin” Batman, who is “controlling drones from the batcave,” it seems that Warner Bros. wasn’t kidding when they said that we were getting a seasoned and weary Batman. …
