BATMAN V SUPERMAN: BEN AFFLECK DESCRIBES A DIFFERENT DARK KNIGHT

Published

on

After the most recent trailer for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ dropped on us and blew our minds with the appearance of an unexpected villain.  We’ve only now began to ask ourselves questions about the content of the new found footage.

Doomsday-750x400

One questions that has been a splinter in the minds of many bloggers is, “Is Doomsday the major villain of this film?” And if so, “Why would they expose him in the trailer, instead of saving him for the film?”  The answer is simple… There is more to this movie than meets the eye.  But lets get back to why we are here.

THE BATMAN!

Ben Affleck in a recent interview with the French magazine: Studio Cine Live had this to say about the comparisons to Christopher Nolan’s Batman.

“Christopher Nolan used his Batman to tell a finite story. My version is different, but remains faithful to the Batman mythology and all the themes associated with it.” Affleck also went on to say, “One of the reasons for the differences, is that Nolan’s Batman isn’t part of a universe where other superheroes exist as well. Here — because we’re working towards the Justice League — there’s Superman, and it’s a world populated with super beings. This situation generates an altogether new reality.”

Affleck went on further to discuss how this incarnation of Bruce Wayne/Batman will have more trouble dealing with his past and inner pain.

The new movie, he said, “play[s] a bit more with the billionaire playboy side of the character. He lives that life at full tilt. He courts many women, owns many cars, and parties a lot. He does that as a way to fill the void in his soul. Moreover, past incarnations dealt with a straight forward search for justice. This time, Batman’s reasoning is clouded by frustration, bitterness and anger.”

Sounds to me like this version of Batman will be a wildly different take on the character.  More of a loose cannon so to speak.  Not so single minded on revenge and justice.

Let us know in the comments what you think of Affleck’s depiction of the new Dark Knight.

Matt Reeves Drops First Look | Batsuit Test From ‘The Batman’

Published

on

Fans have been waiting weeks since filming began for Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman,’ for a quick glance at the new batsuit. Now we have our first official look at what Robert Pattinson will look like dawning the cape and cowl of the dark knight. We also get our first listen at the musical tone we can expect from the upcoming film, which to no surprise, is dark and ominous. Pattinson would like to see Batman receive an R-Rating saying that it would free his character up to do more:

“The only thing that’s more complicated is the rating. As soon as you make something an R-rated movie, you’re freed up to do so much stuff. In terms of the character itself, I want to push it as far as it possibly can go. And I think Matt Reeves does as well. You can do crazy stuff with that part.”

Bruce Wayne Is Dead: The Unused ‘Joker’ Ending That Would Have Made For A Much Darker Film

Published

on

2019’s ‘Joker,’ which has now been nominated for multiple Golden Globes, including “Best Actor” and Best Motion Picture – Drama,” has continued to surprise fans. The film has garnered large success, recently surpassing the $1billion milestone at the box-office, on a relatively small production budget of $50-70 mil. While ‘Joker’ is said to be a one and done film, Joaquin Phoenix and Director Todd Phillips haven’t quite ruled out the possibility of a second installment. ‘Joker,’ is also expected to receive multiple nominations at the Academy Awards as well.

During a recent podcast of Fatman Beyond, Kevin Smith shared a little insider information about one alternate ending that could have pushed ‘Joker’ even further to the dark side. Smith had this to say:

So [Arthur’s] in the hospital and he laughs, chuckles. And the lady goes, ‘What’s so funny?'” Smith recalled. “And he says, ‘I was just thinking of something funny.’ What was supposed to happen was, you flashed back to the death of Thomas and Martha Wayne. And it was him killing Thomas and Martha Wayne. And [Bruce] was screaming and crying. And [Joker] turned to walk away, then he turned back, shrugged, and shot the kid. CREDITS.

This ending would have surely solidified any potential connection to Batman in a future sequel. But, what this tells us, is Todd Phillips wasn’t ready to completely throw away the idea of pitting a future matchup between Phoenix’s Joker with some incarnation of Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Do you think this would have made for a better ending? Or do you like the connection that Phillips left, with Joker’s ideology being the catalysts that kills Martha/Thomas Wayne and births Batman?
