Ben Affleck, who first starred as Batman as a part of the DCEU in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, and will be in the upcoming Justice League, will no longer be directing the standalone Batman film. The news comes months after the studio first hinted during this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con that the actor would get behind the camera of his own superhero film. That was followed by countless Affleck dodging questions during his junkets for The Accountant and Live By Night. Just a few weeks ago, the actor insisted that he was going to direct the film.
But now comes word that he “cannot do both jobs to the level they require.” His and Warner Bros. statement is below.
A strange viral for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steelappeared recently, where General Zod (Michael Shannon) issued the denizens of Earth an ultimatum: bring the last son of Krypton (Henry Cavill) to him or suffer dire consequences. Does the world answer the call or do they stand behind the Man of Steel and fight back? The third trailer for the film has finally arrived, and it answers that question. But also raises a few more about the legendary DC Comics hero.
After being overshadowed by Marvel Studios for some odd years, WB and DC comics are ready to launch their own cinematic universe with Justice League. The problem is that the script written by Will Beal has been scrapped, we don’t know if Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel is the first step into the Justice League movie, and WB is keeping a tight lid on the development of the long-gestating film.
But know WB president Jeff Robinov has revealed that Man of Steel is “definitely a first step” into getting a Justice League movie into development.
In an interview with EW, Robinov said that Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight trilogy is definitely a standalone franchise and has no relation to the Justice League film.
After holding off on months and months of promotions for The Hangover Part III, the WB marketing team has released its second trailer for the film. While we’ve been waiting to hear how this film is unlike the first two, the first trailer didn’t seem to clarify how it would separate itself from its predecessors. So this new trailer gives us a few hints as to how it will do just that.
Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis reprise their respective Wolfpack roles, so check out the latest trailer for the film to find out how this Hangover film is different from the rest.
The Dark Knight Rises is just mere days away (eight, to be exact), and if you got the same tingling feeling from listening to the soundtrack as I did, then you are just as excited as I am to see this movie.
But that’s just a taste of the good stuff, what comes next is like the cherry on top. There’s a new IMAX poster and a “Journey” trailer, and you can check both of them out below.
