Henry Cavill Reportedly Not Giving Up The Red Cape Just Yet

Published

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.

‘The Batman’ Set Photos Have Surfaced Online

Published

With ‘The Batman’ set to being filming soon, we have received our first little tidbit as to what the city of Gotham will entail. Recent set photos have been making the rounds over the last 24 hours, giving us a glimpse of Gotham City Police vehicles. Batman fans have been clamoring for the smallest bit of news since the cast announcements. We know that recently, Robert Pattinson has spoken about the task of putting on the cape and cowl, but also the power he feels after getting suited up.

“It’s maybe the craziest thing I’ve ever done in terms of movie stuff,” Pattinson says. “I put it on. I remember saying to Matt, ‘It does feel quite transformative!’ He was like, ‘I would hope it does! You’re literally in the Batsuit.’”

“You do feel very powerful immediately,” Pattinson said. “And it’s pretty astonishing, something that is incredibly difficult to get into, so the ritual of getting into it is pretty humiliating. You’ve got five people trying to shove you into something. Once you’ve got it on, it’s like, ‘Yeah, I feel strong, I feel tough, even though I had to have someone squeezing my butt cheeks into the legs.”

“You’re trying to think of the way to balance, how to bring something new to it and not want to scare people off,” Pattinson sid. “And work in the confines of the costume.”

While ‘The Batman’ will begin filming in London, many fans are hoping to catch a glimpse of the new “Batsuit” and Pattinson’s “Bat-physique.” Many believe Pattinson will take a little from previously popular batmen, and bring that chemistry to the big screen.

‘The Batman’ stars: Robert Pattinson (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Andy Serkis (Alfred Pennyworth), Zoë Kravitz (Selina Kyle/Catwoman), Paul Dano (The Riddler), Colin Farrell (The Penguin) John Turturro (Carmine Falcone) Jeffrey Wright (Commissiner Gordon)

Production is set to begin January 13, 2020

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?
