‘The Batman’ Will Be A Noir Detective DC Film
eelyajekiM   |  

Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne in Justice League

Batman goes by many names, but none as intellectually imposing as The World’s Greatest Detective. Sure he may have gizmos and gadgets at his disposal, and a lot of it helps him discover clues about the criminal underworld. But we really haven’t seen a film where those same detective skills are at the forefront of the character.

However, it appears that director Matt Reeves wants to bring a noir style to the world of The Batman. Pull down those Venetian blinds, and read more about what Reeves has planned for the Caped Crusader.

‘Justice League’: Danny Elfman To Compose Score
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Danny Elfman

Now that Joss Whedon has taken on the responsibility of completing production on Justice League in time for its release this fall following Zack Snyder‘s departure from the movie due to a death in his family, he has brought on the always amazing Danny Elfman to compose the score for the much-anticipated DC Films blockbuster.

The hiring of Elfman comes just as Whedon is about to commence with the filming of additional scenes in London. Obviously this isn’t Elfman’s first time creating original music for a big-budget superhero movie; his score for Tim Burton’s first Batman in 1989 captured the film’s madness, melancholy, adventure, and Gothic atmosphere perfectly and continues to influence composers to this day. He also created the themes for the first TV series of The Flash, which aired for one season from 1990-1991, and Batman: The Animated Series.

Zack Snyder Talks Vaguely About Superman’s Return In ‘Justice League’

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image 03

A world where the Justice League exists without Superman. It’s something we’ve all seen before whether it’s in the comics or on the small screen. But now Justice League, the big screen adaptation of the superhero ensemble, will present that idea to the audience.

The Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) has been missing for the better part of the marketing campaign and has not been seen in any of the released footage. But there is an explanation for all of that, and while Zack Snyder is not likely to spoil how Supes returns specifically, he will indulge those wondering with a few vague comments. Check out what he had to say about Superman’s absence and return in the full story below.

Justice League header

So after a long-awaited eight months of anticipation, Warner Bros. has dropped the newest trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Justice League. It’s not as though we didn’t see this coming. After all the studio had made the announcement about the upcoming trailer on Thursday through a series of short vignettes. Now, we are finally seeing the final cut of the trailer for the DCEU ensemble film everyone has been waiting for. It’s Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Moama), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) all together against strange winged-creatures, the very ones we saw in Bruce Wayne’s Knightmare sequence in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Check out the newest trailer here below, along with the new poster featuring the team.

‘Justice League’ Teaser Spotlights Jason Momoa’s Aquaman; Full Trailer Coming Soon
eelyajekiM   |  

Justice League Aquaman Jason Momoa

For some DCEU fans, it has been a long frustrating eight months since the release of the first Justice League trailer which dropped during SDCC last Summer. Since then, Warner Bros. has released Suicide Squad and dealt with a myriad of bad publicity surrounding The Flash, The Batman, and the entire DCEU as a whole. Despite what has been said about Wonder Woman, the first female-led superhero tentpole looks very promising, and Matt Reeves will be directing The Batman – a film which star Ben Affleck looked like he had no interest in directing in the first place. They are even courting Matthew Vaughn to direct Man of Steel 2 or an untitled DCEU film.

Now Warner Bros has announced that they will soon be releasing a new trailer for Justice League, and judging by how it is focused on Aquaman (Jason Momoa), we might be getting a lot more of them. Check out the teaser for the trailer here below, along with the newly released teaser poster.

‘The Batman’ Script Getting Complete Overhaul; Won’t Start Shooting Until 2018

Batman v Superman Ben Affleck Bat Signal

The Batman has been in a production stall ever since the title was announced. Despite having then-director Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns writing the script with Chris Terrio doing the rewrites, and Affleck bowing out as director only to have Matt Reeves take his place, the film has yet to shoot a single scene. While the box office speaks for itself, critics have not been kind to the DCEU films, and things can only get worse with more behind-the-scenes troubles affecting the overall morale.

Now, it is being confirmed that Reeves’ current obligation to War for the Planet of the Apes is forcing the production of The Batman to be pushed back. Also, the script is being rewritten from scratch. More on the story below.

Laurence Fishburne as Perry White in Batman v Superman

Normally an ensemble superhero movie is the culmination of all the major characters’ stories that have appeared throughout the cinematic universe. Obviously the bigger superheroes will make it in, but some supporting characters make their way in as well. But one of the characters that won’t be appearing in Justice League, despite being in two DCEU films, is Perry White, confirmed by the actor who plays him, Laurence Fishburne.

The actor also confirmed a few things about the rivalry between DCEU and Marvel. Check out what he had to say below.

Ben Affleck as Batman

Before we get into this, let’s just start by saying that this is just a rumor.

There is no confirmation yet. But there is a rumor, and I emphasize the word rumor, that Ben Affleck doesn’t want to be Batman anymore. The actor has played the Dark Knight twice already, with his third being in the upcoming Justice League. He was poised to direct the hero’s standalone feature The Batman with a script he had written with Geoff Johns. However, he suddenly dropped out, forcing Warner Bros. to enter talks with Matt Reeves to take his place. More on the story below.
