Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Dark Knight Rises

There is always one weak film in a trilogy, and for Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight trilogy that film was The Dark Knight Rises. Of course, no film is perfect, and while it was ambitious and had great action, it was bloated and clunky.

Still, if the trilogy had to end one way, no one could really have done it any better than what Nolan had to offer. And it seems that Joseph Gordon-Levitt believes that it was the perfect ending. More on the story below.

Heath Ledger as Joker in The Dark Knight

I don’t know if people will be talking about Zack Snyder’s and Ben Affleck’s Batman when the year 2026 or so rolls around or not. What I do know is that people are still talking about Christopher Nolan‘s and Christian Bale‘s Batman, especially 2008’s The Dark Knight, which featured the late Heath Ledger‘s unforgettable Oscar-winning performance as the Joker.

An excellent new YouTube channel (only a couple of months old) called Lessons from the Screenplay takes a closer look at Ledger’s Joker in a recently released video, and what truly made him the perfect villain to face off with the Batman.

You can check it out below.

Superhero films can be a dime a dozen, especially since a lot of them come out every other if not every month of the year. So it would be hard for one to make an everlasting impression on anyone, let alone someone like Steven Spielberg.

Now, the legendary filmmaker, who is at the Cannes Film Festival to help promote is upcoming film, The BFG – check out the new trailer here – is talking about which superhero films are his favorite. And don’t worry, he is not a part of the conspiracy, as his list is a pretty nice mix from Marvel and DC. Check out which of the superhero films are his favorite below.

SDCC 2014: New Photo Of Ben Affleck As Batman From ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

Batman vs Superman

In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of Batman and the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Entertainment has created a montage wall at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con featuring pictures old and new of the Dark Knight.

On said wall there now exists a brand new one photo revealed specifically for this event. It’s a profile shot of Ben Affleck from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the newest incarnation of the classic cowl we all know and love. The matte black of the mask and the unshaven chin give this Caped Crusader a very grisly look, reminiscent of some of Frank Miller’s darker renderings. Looking a bit worn around the edges, I’m beginning to think Affleck might do well in his role. Time will tell. No doubt there will be more movie news as SDCC 2014 continues. But until then, check this new photo out here below.

Wait, What? WB Chooses Ben Affleck To Replace Christian Bale As Batman

Batfleck: Ben Affleck is Batman

According to Variety, Warner Brothers has their new Dark Knight – and it will be Ben Affleck. The “bomb in Phantoms yo” is to replace Christian Bale in the franchise, and will co-star alongside Henry Cavill as in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman crossover film slated as the direct sequel to Man Of Steel.

I’m surprised at this revelation. First off, I’ve never been able to picture Affleck as Bruce Wayne, much less Batman – his demeanor really doesn’t fit the characterization. That being said, Affleck has shown to be adaptable in some of his movies, so this might be an interesting result.

Rumor Patrol: WB Offers Christian Bale A $60 Million Reason To Play Batman Again

The Dark Knight Rises: Batman

We’ve all heard that the Batman vs. Superman script was calling for a Batman/Bruce Wayne that is older and more experienced. A shortlist of actors which included names like Josh Brolin and Joe Manganiello, or even the fan requested Jon Hamm, would certainly fit the bill. Now a new report says that Warner Brothers is offering a large sum of money to Christian Bale to reprise his role Batman/Bruce Wayne.

The report comes from The Sun, so it’s best that we consider this a rumor, and tread lightly. It mentions that WB is offering Bale up to 40 million British pounds to reprise the role of the Caped Crusader. That means 40 million British pounds equates to $60 million dollars.

‘Justice League: Mortal’: The DC Comics Movie Event Forever Damned To Development Hell

Justice League

It’s good to see Warner Bros. and DC Comics finally starting to learn from their past mistakes in bringing their classic comic book superhero stable to the big screen. Outside of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy their future looked mighty bleak in the wake of the less-than-enthusiastic receptions given to Superman Returns and Green Lantern. Last week the long-in-the-works Man of Steel brought Superman back to the big screen to the tune of a record-smashing $128 million opening weekend despite mixed reviews. Warners/DC had been hedging their bets of Man of Steel being successful enough to begin constructing a long-running cinematic universe of multiple superhero movie franchises to rival Marvel Studios, with the end result being an all-star Justice League team-up film.

However, the Justice League movie has proved to be of even greater difficulty to get off the ground than the film adventure of any single DCU character. Gangster Squad scribe Will Beall took a crack at the project last year but his efforts were eventually discarded by the studio in favor of a fresh start overseen by David S. Goyer, the writer and hardcore comic fan who helped make Blade the first lucrative feature franchise out of a Marvel character and also co-wrote Batman Begins and wrote Man of Steel, as part of a three-picture deal that also includes a naturally inevitable Man of Steel sequel.
