Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Image 06

Tell me if you haven’t heard this one before. Ben Affleck says he is dissatisfied with being the Batman in the DCEU and then backtracks on those comments. Then rumors of Affleck’s unhappiness appear once more only for him to “squash” them at SDCC.

This story has been reported on so many times it’s really hard to keep up. So, let’s just mark this as the third time that we’ve been hearing Affleck wants out. However, it’s not Ben who is saying it, but his brother, Casey Affleck. Get more on this story below.

Ben Affleck Says We’ll See A Different Kind Of Batman In ‘Justice League’

Batman v Superman Ben Affleck Bat Signal

When we first saw Ben Affleck as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he was anything but happy. The Dark Knight was a pessimistic curmudgeon who believed that Superman presented a danger to the world. However, Supes’ sacrifice made him change his ways. And we’ve seen a little bit of that change in some of the trailers for Justice League. He certainly had a fun time recruiting Barry Allen (Ezra Miller). But I can’t say the same for Aquaman (Jason Momoa). But these changes in tone signify that the DCEU is walking away from the dark tones the franchise has started off with. Wonder Woman was a nice way to start off, and bringing in Joss Whedon to direct Justice League will help tone down the darkness.

Now Affleck says audiences will see a different kind of Batman in Justice League. According to him, it will be a “more traditional Batman.” More on the story below.

Rumor: ‘Justice League’ First Cut “Unwatchable”; Reshoots Fixing Tone

Justice League team first look

Movie reshoots are becoming less of a normal thing and more of something to be deeply concerned about. Oftentimes, studios would have reshoots set in place to work out some of the issues of the film. But now it looks like it’s casting more doubt than an assurance that the film will be good. Case in point, Justice League. The highly anticipated film made a huge splash recently when WB debuted the newest trailer at SDCC. However, it was then met with criticism for looking more like a video game than an actual film. Even worse, details about WB working on Zack and Deborah Snyder‘s exit from the DCEU were revealed. Then there were the reshoots that called for star Henry Cavill’s mustache to be digitally erased.

We all know reshoots are just a typical part of the blockbuster filmmaking process. Studios always have a place in the budget for them. But recent reports of reshoots have shown how problematic film production can be. And now we are getting an idea of how severe the Justice League reshoot situation is.

Although they were able to rile the crowd at SDCC this past weekend, the film was still in the middle of reshoots. Of course, none of that was addressed in Hall H, but there is word that Warner Bros. is spending quite a bit of money in order for Justice League to be as big of a success as Wonder Woman, and less of a failure as Suicide Squad. More on the story below.

As the WB panel was quickly coming to a close, the DCEU portion welcomed Ben Affleck, Ezra Miller, Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher and Jason Momoa. As a part of the Justice League, the actors play Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, and Aquaman, respectively. But there’s still no sight of Henry Cavill, who has played Superman for two DCEU films. A recently released poster hinted at his return when Superman’s emblem appeared as a part of the film’s tagline.

The highlight of any panel of course is the footage, and WB delivered here. A huge 4-minute sneak peek trailer for the movie was shown, and then released online for the world to see. You can find it below along with a new poster.

Ben Affleck’s Rumored Wish To No Longer Play Batman May Come True

Ben Affleck as Batman

There comes a point in time where we have to ask ourselves if there’s going to be any good news about Ben Affleck and The Batman. Since Affleck joined the DCEU, he’s been in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, both were marred by negative reviews for a variety of reasons. Then there was the pressure to direct a great Batman film, which he took himself out of.

So while Matt Reeves taking the helm may be a sigh of relief, there’s still the rumor of Affleck wanting out of his obligation to star as the Caped Crusader as well. Now there’s word that the at execs at WB are working on a deal to make that happen, but in a graceful manner. More on the story below.

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.
