‘The Batman’ May Draw Inspiration From ‘Batman: Year One’ and ‘The Long Halloween’, Could Introduce the Flying Graysons [Updated]

Update: Set photos have been posted online that appear to depict jack-o-lanterns on the set of The Batman, which lends credence to the long-held speculation that Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s beloved comic graphic novel Batman: The Long Halloween may serve as an inspiration for Reeves’ movie. We won’t link to those photos, but they’re out there if you want to track them down. In any case, the apparent Halloween setting may mark the first time a live-action Batman movie has taken place during that ho...

‘The Batman’ May Draw Inspiration from ‘Batman: Year One,’ Could Introduce the Flying Graysons

Since Robert Pattinson stepped into the cape and cowl, it was clear that Matt Reeves‘ The Batman would follow a younger Caped Crusader. But just how early? We still know very few details about the plot of The Batman, but previous reports suggested that the film would show the early days of Batman’s career, barring the origin story that we’ve already seen dozens of times before. Now a new tweet from Reeves hints that The Batman will draw inspiration from one of the most iconic depictions of Batm...

Ben Affleck Opens Up About Struggles With Alcoholism, Why He Left ‘The Batman’

In 2016, it seemed like the future was bright for Warner Bros.’ The Batman. Ben Affleck, who had just made his debut as an older and wearier Caped Crusader in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, was set to direct the Batman solo flick from a script he was co-writing with longtime DC Comics stalwart Geoff Johns. But a year later, Affleck would step down from the director’s chair. Two years after that, Affleck left The Batman altogether. At the time, Affleck was dealing with publicly-docum...

‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Trailer: A Coming-of-Age Superhero Movie in the Vein of John Hughes

If you’ve had enough of big screen superheroes lately, maybe you’d like an origin story for one that feels more like a John Hughes high school movie with all the teenage trials and tribulations you can handle. That’s what Netflix is hoping with their new series I Am Not Okay With This, based on Charles Forsman ‘s graphic novel of the same name. IT franchise star Sophia Lillis leads the series as Sydney, an introverted, disaffected teenage girl who not only has to deal with all the nonsense of ...

‘Venom 2’ Set Photo Reveals Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady with a Much Better Wig

When Venom came to a close, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) came face-to-face with Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) and all of his curly red-haired glory. The vicious criminal gave us the oh-so-very subtle tease of his future as the super villain Carnage in this comic book universe (which may or may not be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?) with the line, “ When I get out of here, and I will, there’s gonna be carnage.” Now it seems we have confirmation of the character’s escape in the first Venom 2...

‘Birds of Prey’ Producer Sue Kroll on Me Too, Reshoots, and Sequel Possibilities [Interview]

Producer Sue Kroll has been with Birds of Prey from the very beginning. Since it was just an idea in star Margot Robbie‘s head while she was originating her breakout character Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Since director Cathy Yan came to Kroll and fellow producer Bryan Unkeless with a vision of a wild, bombastic, and unabashedly fun girl gang movie. “There was something very raw about it, very visceral,” Kroll said of the sizzle reel that Yan showed to her and Unkeless. That visceral tone was...

Marvel Studios’ First Gay Couple Revealed in ‘Eternals’ – Here’s Who They Are

We’ve known for a while that Eternals, the upcoming Marvel Studios movie directed by Chloe Zhao, is supposed to be the first MCU movie to include LGBTQ representation in a significant way. The studio has had an…interesting relationship with LGBTQ portrayals on screen thus far, but it sounds like a major barrier is being broken in Eternals. Read on to find out which actors are playing those roles. In a new interview with Logo (via io9), actor Haaz Sleiman (The Visitor, Amazon’s Jack Ryan) reve...

‘New Mutants’ Images Remind You That Yes, This Movie Is Really Coming Out This Time

Word on the street is that The New Mutants is finally coming out – but we still have our doubts. Can you blame us? We’ve been here before – the film has had its release date shuffled around more times than we can count. And sure, there’s marketing material stating left and right that New Mutants is opening in April. But there was marketing material claiming it was opening on those previous dates, too. Still – the movie’s April 2020 release date hasn’t shifted yet, so I guess we can all relax an...

‘Birds of Prey’ Gets a New Title in Theaters After Underperforming at the Box Office

Birds of Prey may have topped the box office last weekend, but it opened far lower than box office analysts predicted. Even the expectations from Warner Bros. Pictures were nearly $13 million higher than what the movie actually earned. And it sounds like the studio may have figured out what part of the problem is: the title. After being marketed as simply Birds of Prey, and occasionally by the comically longer title Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), the new t...

‘Birds of Prey’ Director Cathy Yan on Crafting Old-School Action With the ‘John Wick’ Team [Interview]

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a movie bursting with personality. It’s poppy and gritty, slapstick-y and visceral, and most striking of all, it doesn’t confine itself to as many boxes or rules as most comic book movies do. It’s a rare comic book movie with an actual sense of freedom and spontaneity. Behind the boisterous vision is filmmaker Cathy Yan. Before Yan was writing and directing films, she was already sharpening her skills as a storyteller. A gr...

‘Birds of Prey’ Writer Christina Hodson on Writing Harley Quinn and How ‘Trainspotting’ Influences Her Writing [Interview]

DC has been a good home to screenwriter Christina Hodson. After writing Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), DC and Warner Bros. hired Hodson to adapt two other comic book properties, including Batgirl. Based on the glowing reception to Birds of Prey, the studio now has another strong voice behind their comic book movies. They haven’t always this much sense of authorship and crystal clear vision.

VOTD: VFX Artists React to Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Endgame’

One of the movies nominated for Best Visual Effects at the Academy Awards last night was Avengers: Endgame. It was the only Oscar nomination that the Marvel Studios blockbuster could muster, and considering the fact that nearly every single shot in the movie requires the use of visual effects, they certainly deserved it. But not every movie is perfect, and even though Avengers: Endgame has some truly incredible visual effects throughout, mistakes were made, and one of them is addressed in a new...

‘Birds of Prey’ Video Review – A Fresh, Action-Packed Take on a Classic DC Character

Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) has style to spare. The new film features a quirky and colorful Gotham, a memorable cast of characters, and some pretty impressive hand-to-hand combat. All of it is tied together by Margot Robbie, who commits to this version of Harley Quinn with a zaniness and intensity that is irresistible. Even in moments when the movie doesn’t quite work, you can still feel the love and care that was put into bringing these char...
