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

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.

‘Justice League’ Reshoots: Henry Cavill’s Mustache, Joss Whedon, Scheduling Headaches

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.

‘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 Steps Down As Director Of ‘Justice League’ After Family Tragedy

Zack Snyder

We’d like to joke and poke fun at how the term “creative differences” gets used a lot as a reason why a director walks out on a project. But there are times where it’s for reasons other than that. Sometimes, it’s very personal. For Zack Snyder, he’s stepping away from directing Justice League to be with his family after his daughter, Autumn Snyder, committed suicide in March. More on the story below and how it will affect the post-production of the Justice League.

Joss Whedon To Write and Direct ‘Batgirl’ For WB

Batgirl

So much for superhero fatigue. The genre continues to dominate at the box office and no matter which side of the studio you are on, as long as it is successful we will be getting more of these films.

But after a few missteps, WB is ready to do some course correction by hiring the right directors – or at least getting out of their way. In the latest inspiring hire, WB is close to a deal with Joss Whedon to write, direct, and produce Batgirl. Which seems fitting since he was working with DC on a Wonder Woman movie before Marvel snatched him up for two Avengers films. More on the story below.

20 Great ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Quotes
Olympus Athens   |  

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Cast

Twenty years ago Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 1 episode 1 aired on the The WB to modest ratings. The story of the chosen one, a teenage girl destined to protect the world from vampires (and more), resonated with audiences long past when the show ended. I have watched all of the episodes over and over, and although I cannot recreate that magic of when I watched the episodes for the first time, sharing the series with someone new is the next best thing. One of the reasons Buffy was so successful was the witty banter the characters let loose in the face of this dangerous life. My list is not complete. I can probably write a list of 200 quotes, and still not be done, but I have chosen ones that really resonate with me. Some are not exactly quotes and are more dialogue moments, but I think you will enjoy them anyway.

“In every generation there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the vampires the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer.”

The Movie God   |  

Firefly's Serenity

Fans of Joss Whedon‘s space western Firefly have been waiting for news like this for well over a decade. Fox says that they’re actually open to reviving the long-dead show.

The news came out of the Television Critics Association 2017 press tour about a month ago, but flew under most radars at the time. Fox Broadcasting president of entertainment David Madden was on hand for a panel, and the status of many projects were discussed. When Firefly came up, Madden surprisingly said they were open to reviving the show, under one condition: Whedon has to be up for doing it.
