BEN AFFLECK: “I’D LOVE TO DO IT AS LONG AS THEY’LL HAVE ME”

Published

Entertainment Weekly caught up with ‘Justice League’ actor Ben Affleck at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con International, to clarify some ongoing rumors about his departure from the DCEU as The Dark Knight. Recent reports had suggested a growing feud with Warner Bros. Over Affleck’s thrown out script and his replacement in the director’s chair. Here’s what Affleck had to say about his original plan to write, Star and direct the upcoming Batman film:

“Trying to do that, and direct, would probably be too much. Something would be compromised. I think it came off, optically, to the broader world, like lack of interest or enthusiasm. When in fact I love this character. I think getting Matt Reeves to come in and do it is really, really exciting. Matt hasn’t really unveiled his full vision yet. He wanted to wait until Apes came out, and he was obviously consumed with that. So I’m looking forward to hearing what his story is.”

Matt Reeves who recently just finished work on ‘War for The Planet of The Apes’ will now turn his attention to writing the script for “The Batman.” Reeves most popular works include ‘Dawn of The Planet of the Apes’ and ‘War For The Planet of The Apes’ and 2008’s ‘Cloverfield.’

Affleck continued on stating how humbled he is to be able to play the character of Batman and continued to establish his intention to play the character as long as DC and Warner Bros. will allow it.

“Warners has been working on it, making sure we’re getting it right. That’s the partnership you definitely want. With Wonder Woman, they really hit a home run. With (Justice League), I think we’ve found the tone, and found the flavor of it. I’d love to do it as long as they’ll have me. Eventually it’ll be somebody else, and I’m sure they’ll get somebody great. But while I’m doing it, I’m going to do the best job I can, and really appreciate how lucky I am.”

Published

As the internet catches its collective breath, after hearing official news that ‘Zack Snyder’s: Justice League’ is coming to HBO Max in 2021. Fans can now start to anticipate tidbits as to what we can expect from this new interpretation of Justice League.

Snyder, has started assuring fans, that his film isn’t just a standard “Directors cut,” but will in fact be an almost entirely different movie. Warner Bros. and HBO Max are shelling out an estimated $20-30 mill that will help extend cast member contracts and insure we see an entirely different version. Snyder recently spoke to Hollywood Reporter and shed some light on the project:

“You probably saw one-fourth of what I did,”

Snyder, went on to further separate his vision from what Joss Whedon brought to the screen:

“It will be an entirely new thing, and, especially talking to those who have seen the released movie, a new experience apart from that movie,”

Snyder recently took to social media, to drop a new official image of Uxas aka Darkseid.

Justice Prevails: The Voice of The Fans Bring “Release The Snyder Cut”

Published

on

Yesterday, the internet exploded with news that #ReleaseTheSnyderCut was no longer a myth or an urban legend, but in fact happening. Zack Snyder confirmed during a ‘Justice League’ Vero watch party that HBO Max would be releasing a fully Zack Snyder produced version of 2017’s ‘Justice League.’

Snyder, who was the original director of the JL film, was forced to leave the project abruptly, due to a family tragedy. Warner Bros. execs immediately turned to top Marvel producer Joss Whedon to finish the project. Fans were divided on the outcome of ‘Justice League.’  With a 40% Rotten score and 71% audience score, JL managed to earn $657.9mil at the box-office, which by today’s standards is a poor showing.

Early reports suggest, Warner Bros. and HBO Max will be shelling out an additional $20-30mil for Snyder to complete HIS vision for JL and bring it to HBO streaming in 2021. Other reports suggest, ‘Zack Snyder’s: Justice League’ will have a four plus hour runtime. To many, this suggests, the movie will be broken up in to a four part series. Snyder has reached out to cast members, asking some of them to return for re-shoots and voice overs. Ray fisher (Victor Stone/Cyborg) was the first to receive a call from Snyder.

“He was like, ‘You’re kidding me, right?'”

Snyder went on to talk about his film and what fans can expect from his version of Justice League:

“It will be an entirely new thing, and, especially talking to those who have seen the released movie, a new experience apart from that movie,” he said.

“You probably saw one-fourth of what I did.”

Some of the JL cast have reacted online to the news of Snyder’s vision returning to the screen. Take a look below at the reactions.
