BATMAN V SUPERMAN: BEN AFFLECK DESCRIBES A DIFFERENT DARK KNIGHT

Published

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.

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.

Henry Cavill Reportedly Not Giving Up The Red Cape Just Yet

I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on.”

Back in 2018, reports rolled in that 36 year old ‘Man of Steel’ actor Henry Cavill would not reprise his role as Superman. The DCEU has undergone many changes since we last saw the popular DC hero on screen. Warner Bros. And DC have gone in a completely different direction. Now focusing on solo, lower budget, character driven films, instead of big budget Hollywood blockbusters. The formula seems to be working for now, as Todd Phillips’ ‘Joker’ starring Joaquin Phoenix, filmed on a $50mil budget has surpassed $1bill at the global box-office.

In a recent interview with ‘Men’s Health’ magazine. Cavill was asked the status of Superman in the changing DC Universe. And his place and take on what will happen with the character:

I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role,” Cavill expressed to the magazine. “There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honesty of the character I want to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.”


It would appear that Cavill is not planning to hang up the cape just yet. By the sounds of it,  he hopes to continue in the role, ushering in a new era for the hero from Krypton, in the post Zack Snyder era. Can Henry Cavill survive the soft reboot of the DCEU? Let us know what you think below.

Joaquin Phoenix Stares Into Your Soul As The Joker Via “il venerdì di repubblica” Cover

“Cinematic achievement on a high level.”

Director Todd Phillips has gone on the record stating, his film is going to piss off hardcore comic book fans. The upcoming ‘Joker’ movie will not follow any comic book plot lines or continuity for the villain, and will in fact be its very own stand alone film. With that being said, the movie is already garnering praise from select audiences. Cameron Bailey, co-head and artistic director of the Toronto International Film Festival, went on record with Toronto Sun, hailing the film as “Cinematic achievement on a high level.” Bailey continued on, saying:

“First of all it’s terrific. So it should play on our largest stage. But it’s a really original take on comic book movies and on the Joker character in particular. It’s not based on an existing story, it has one of the greatest actors in modern cinema, Joaquin Phoenix, in the lead, and Robert De Niro is in it as well, one of the best actors that has ever lived.”

Bailey, also went on to say, the film is “Very cinematic,” for a low budget feature.

“Has an interesting tone and approach to it. It’s set in the late ’70s, early ’80s and it feels like it was made then. It’s gritty in its look, it has references to Martin Scorsese’s filmmaking and it feels like a cinematic achievement on a high level. Although it’s working with very populist material, it has great ambition. That’s why it’s a Gala.”
