Ben Affleck May Not Be Long For THE BATMAN World

Ben Affleck is currently at Comic Con promoting the upcoming release of the (pretty but deal) movie he’s starring in, Justice League, in the DC Universe. But you know all of this. The interesting thing now is that appears that Ben is not going to be donning that winged hero for long. THR‘s sources are reporting that Warner Bros. is looking to ease him out of the role, possibly in a near future DC movie. Execs, unsurprisingly, are denying it. “Ben is our Batman. We love him as Batman. We want to keep him in the cowl as long as we...

DOCTOR DOOM Film In The Works Says LEGION Creator

One of the cool things about Comic Con is all the cool tidbits of info that bursts out of panels and talks. Yesterday, Noah Hawley, who created the FX TV Show Legion and is the creative force behind the show Fargo, said that the next project he’s working on for 20th Century Fox could be described in two words: “Doctor Doom.” Doom, of course, is the principal villain in that much-maligned Marvel franchise Fantastic Four, an asset that despite much effort and repeated attempts Fox and Marvel have not been able to get off the ground successfully. the last attempt, in 2015, was a disaster.

Charlize Theron Turned Down Role in WONDER WOMAN

Charlize Theron won an Oscar the last time Patty Jenkins directed a film (before her current hit), the 2003 movie Monster. There, the South African beauty had an uglified role as a serial killer sentenced to death that led to widespread critical acclaim. But it appears as if she almost reappeared in Patty Jenkins currently in theaters project, the not-quite-so-indie Wonder Woman.

I think the world of her. We...

FILM REVIEW: In DUNKIRK, Christopher Nolan Gives Powerful Lesson – In Movie Making

Christopher Nolan fans will have much to cheer on as his latest offering, the World War II drama Dunkirk, coasts into theaters this weekend. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Nolan tackles the daunting task of recounting one of the most important historical episodes of the 20th Century, while making it appealing to 21st Century audiences. This he does ingeniously, with the aid of his usual crew of immensely talented collaborators and of his own unique filmmaking touch. Dunkirk, nominally a historical lesson, really is a lesson in the movies, and how devotion to the craft can magnify...
