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.”

‘Joker’ Success Has Joaquin Phoenix Talking Sequel

Published

“It ended up being a dream role”

Todd Phillips’ ‘Joker’ had tremendous success this weekend. Blowing the doors off the box-office with a record shattering October at $96mil, beating out ‘Venom’ to take the top spot. While ‘Joker’ is still playing strong in theaters, fans have already started speculating what direction the “Clown Prince of Crime,” will head next. Todd Phillips originally shot down the idea of a ‘Joker 2.’ While talking to IGN Phillips said, “We have no plans for a sequel. We always pitched it as one movie, and that’s it.” Now it sounds like Phoenix has different aspirations for the Joker. During an interview with “Popcorn with Peter Travers,” Phoenix talked about his love for the role, saying:

“You know, I wouldn’t have thought about this as my dream role. But now, honestly, I can’t stop thinking about it,” Phoenix said. “I talked to Todd a lot about what else we might be able to do, in general, just to work together, but also specifically, if there’s something else we can do with Joker that might be interesting. So, it ended up being a dream role. It’s nothing that I really wanted to do prior to working on this movie.”

Phoenix, who famously passed on the role of Doctor Strange in the MCU also had this to say about returning to the Joker:

“I don’t know that there is [more to do],” Phoenix said. “Me and Todd would still be shooting now if we could, right? Because it seemed endless, the possibilities of where we can go with the character.”

‘Joker’ will definitely have fans clamoring for more. The movie sets up plenty of potential options for a sequel. More importantly fans just want to see Phoenix return to the screen as Arthur Fleck aka Joker. Joker has raked in over $258mil worldwide on a reported $50mil budget.
