Ben Affleck Says We’ll See A Different Kind Of Batman In Justice League Movie

Batman White Television Logo Navy Blue T-Shirt

Speaking to EW, Ben Affleck talks about the evolution of the Batman. Going from a angry vigilante to a something more heroic:

And the character is very different, too. “BvS departed a little bit from the traditional Batman,” says Affleck. “He started out with all this rage directed at Superman, because of his coworkers who had died in the fight Superman had with Zod.” For Affleck, most of the hero’s ensuing actions were defined by barely-repressed fury – in contrast to the Batman we meet in Justice League. “He was holding on to a lot of anger, in a little bit of an irrational way,” Affleck says. “Whereas this is a much more traditional Batman. He’s heroic. He does things in his own way, but he wants to save people, help people.”

and

Affleck frames the new attitude as a return to a more classical incarnation of the Caped Crusader. “This is more in keeping with the canon of how Batman’s usually been portrayed, and how he’s portrayed vis a vis the Justice League in the comics,” he explains. “This is more the Batman you would find if you opened up your average Batman comic book.

Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.

Watch Now: IT – Official Trailer One

The single reason I was afraid of clowns at a young age was the Tim Curry version of Pennywise. Can’t wait to relive my clown fears with this one.

When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

“IT” stars Bill Skarsgård (“Allegiant,” TV’s “Hemlock Grove”) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (“Midnight Special”), Jeremy Ray Taylor (“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip”), Sophia Lillis (“37”), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s “Stranger Things”), Wyatt Oleff (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming “Cops and Robbers”), Jack Dylan Grazer (“Tales of Halloween”) and Nicholas Hamilton (“Captain Fantastic”).

i09 has the full story.

“So much happens in [the 3rd and 4th Avengers movies], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker?” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told io9. “So, coming out two months after Untitled Avengers, [that’s what] much of what the next Spider-Man film will be about.”

and

“I hope [the news comes] after that. I think there will be certain elements that start to come about, not the least of which is the already announced release date of the next Spider-Man film. But other than that we’re going to keep it very close to the vest because this is really about focusing on the unprecedented conclusion to a 22-movie overarching narrative.”

Can’t wait for the 7th!

Silly Action Movies That Make Us Laugh

Sales of theater tickets, Blu-Ray discs, and DVDs make it clear that movie-goers still like their traditional action flicks. Something about the drama, suspense, fighting, and special effects is still captivating to the crowds of people looking for entertainment.

Of course, just watching the same tired, old plots gets boring for any genre. New elements must be introduced, from time to time, and that is where action-comedies come in. Continue reading Silly Action Movies That Make Us Laugh

Our Favorite Quips from the Lego Batman Movie

If you like superheroes and hilarious one-liners, The Lego Batman Movie fits right into your repertoire of movie selections. Right from the first moments of the film, there was witty banter that kept both kids and adults laughing for the entire hour and forty-four minutes of show time. Most of our favorite quips from the Lego Batman movie are between Batman and the infamous villain, The Joker. Others are with Richard (his friends call him “Dick”), whom Batman has accidentally adopted. Continue reading Our Favorite Quips from the Lego Batman Movie

John Wick 3 Details Teased!

Collider has the full story.

We want, not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world… I feel like there are all these different subtleties that I skipped over in Number Two, that I’d like to go back to on [chapter three] and show you the inner workings of different parts of New York. So rather than massive set pieces, I’d like to show you cooler and more intricate ones… I think it would be a mistake budget wise and creatively to just go big and blow up a freeway. That’s not our gig. That’s a comic book or a Bond gig. We want to show you cool and intricate details. What are those little details in everyday life? Hopefully – we make people look at garbage collectors and cleaner vans and homeless people a little differently now.

and

And although we know some of Wick’s backstory from what’s been implied in the previous movies, Stahelski says more revelations will only come from action, not from some exposition dump:

“Yeah, definitely — but it’s about John revealing it. It’s not about you finding a hidden book or a secret map about who John Wick is. Anyone watching can start piecing it together. You know he’s had some serious training. Was it military? Ehh — he kind of looks military. Where’s he from? Well — he speaks all these languages. We’re giving you the pieces and I think it’s always good… Hopefully in five years, you and your buddies will talk about how ‘he’s this or he’s that.’ We’ll give you a couple more pieces and let you stitch it together.”
