Ben Affleck will portray the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder’s Superman vs. Batman. ¬†Though Affleck was Oscar snubbed this year as a director, the film he directed won Best Picture.

And let’s be honest, when it comes to directing films, Snyder is going to need all of the help he can get.

54.6% mean rottentomatoes score

Whereas Ben’s is 94.6%,¬†as a director.

‚ÄúWe knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics‚Äô most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and¬†Ben Affleck¬†certainly fits that bill, and then some” said¬†Greg Silverman, President of¬†Creative Development¬†and Worldwide Production atWarner Bros. earlier today. “His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúBen provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry‚Äôs Superman,” added director Snyder. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can‚Äôt wait to work with him.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúWe are so thrilled that Ben is continuing Warner Bros.‚Äô remarkable legacy with the character of Batman,” continued¬†Worldwide¬†Marketing¬†and International Distribution President¬†Sue Kroll.¬†He is a tremendously gifted actor who will make this role his own in this already much-anticipated pairing of these two beloved heroes.”

Warner Bros. has a longstanding relationship with Affleck. His most recent hit for the studio was 2012’s Argo, which won Best Picture at this year’s¬†Academy¬†Awards. Affleck’s next directorial effort, Live By Night, will also be produced by Warner.

The film will be penned by Snyder and Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer, and is currently slated to open worldwide on July 17, 2015. The sequel will reunite Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams and Diane Lane.

Man of Steel has taken in more than $630 million at the worldwide box office to date.

UPDATE:

Superman Vs. Batman will film in Detroit, Michigan.

Guardians 3

Marvel’s panel at SDCC¬†primarily showcased an ensemble Guardians of the Galaxy cast including: Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, Chris Pratt and Djimon Hounsou. ¬†The Avenger’s 2 will be titled¬†Avengers: Age of Ultron,¬†which let’s be totally honest is multitudes better than Zack Snyder managed to do:

Albert Einstein himself¬†plans on bringing depth and meaning to his¬†Batman/Superman team up-film,¬†so he titled the film: ¬†Superman vs. Batman. ¬†The guy’s clearly a genius. ¬†Why¬†Warner Bros.¬†keeps hiring a man who’s “best film” garnered a¬†56%¬†on¬†rottentomatoes, is baffling. ¬†As a matter of fact, the guy’s¬†LAST THREE FILMS¬†averaged a blunderous¬†43%¬†on the oft-referenced¬†meta-critic-website. ¬†Now, I’m no rocket scientist. ¬†To be certain. ¬†But words like¬†fail, and¬†baddie; spring to mind.

UPDATE: Actors Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling are reportedly in front-running for a rebooted Caped Crusader.

UPDATE:

Vin Diesel will voice Groot.

Bradley Cooper may be Rocket Raccoon.

DC vs marvel artisan

Zack Snyder may be a bad story-teller, but in all fairness is a¬†talented cinematographer. ¬†Luckily enough for us, Christopher Nolan is the kind of guy that would start¬†trolling¬†a baddie if they are¬†bad. ¬†Which let’s be honest if you are dealing with¬†Zack Snyder;¬†that is¬†going to be the case more often than not.

#TROLOLOLOL. ¬†Disney¬†finally¬†bought itself¬†out of¬†Marvel’s¬†Paramount contract,¬†but is still paying¬†8% and 9%¬†royalties¬†on¬†grosses¬†$1,511,757,910¬†(The Avengers)¬† and¬†$1,147,575,931¬†(Iron Man 3)¬†respectively.¬†¬†Granting¬†Paramount¬†roughly¬†200$mill¬†without breaking a sweat. ¬†Or literally even doing anything.¬†¬†Thor: The Dark World¬†however:¬†will be¬†Marvel Studios’¬†first foot-loose and fancy-free “in-house” project. ¬†With a little bit of¬†wiggle-room,¬†Marvel¬†has¬†already started writing up scripts¬†for some of it’s most¬†recently re-acquired¬†intellectual property¬†most notably:¬†Blade,¬†Punisher,¬†Daredevil,¬†Ghostrider, and¬†Doctor Strange.

My trolling of Zack Snyder evidently will be to no avail as he seems to have turned out a solid film with executive producer Christopher Nolan at his back:

In all fairness though he’s quite good at making trailers, and less good at making movies. ¬†Anywho, it seems that viral marketing campaigns are what all the “cool kids” are doing nowadays and apparently The Big Blue Boyscout¬†is no different:

Concrete Comradery - 2

Shortly after trashing it’s first script, Justice League has been given new life as rumor has it Christian Bale¬†is in talks to reprise his role as The Dark Knight in a JLA film. ¬†Similar rumors dictate that Christopher Nolan has been named “godfather” of the entire¬†DCU at WB Studios. ¬†While both news stories are rumors and should be taken lightly, Justice League¬†is looking a lot better than it was a couple weeks ago.

Meanwhile, a source claiming to have seen an early screening of Man of Steel is claiming that it is “the best movie of the year”.¬† Which let’s be honest is pretty stupid because it’s only March, and the movie isn’t even out yet. ¬†Nevertheless,¬†many think a Superman/Batman film¬†starring Bale/Cavill is the most effective segway into an ensemble Justice League¬†film. ¬†And they make some pretty good points.¬† Why do Superman and Batman make such a powerful dynamic duo? ¬†Because an ¬†Artisan/Guardian¬†symbiosis is a powerful thing. ¬†Let’s take a look.

Man of Steel released a new trailer this week and it looks like Zack Snyder is still bad at making movies:

Warner Bros. has high hopes for the project however as they reportedly may be throwing in a post-credit¬†“team up” scene¬†with Joseph Gordon Levitt¬†tying in Nolan’s Batman Universe and opening the door for a¬†Justice League of America. ¬†Nothing is official of course and some fans are nerd-raging about¬†JGL donning Batman’s¬†threads in a JLA film, because it would disrupt the continuity of Nolan’s Trilogy. ¬†Regardless, DC/Warner Bros.¬†knows it is now losing an arms race against arch-nemesis¬†Marvel/Disney¬†in Hollywood, and is brainstorming furiously to even the playing field. ¬†A key piece of this puzzle of course is Big Blue himself, as even Warner Bros. CEO Jeff Robinov called him a “flagship character”.

WHO IS the cornerstone of the Justice League, the #1 comicbook superhero of all time? ¬†¬†Let’s take a look.

Despite the tragic shooting that happened in a movie theater in Aurora Colorado, The Dark Knight Rises has become the biggest box office 2d film of all time, beating out its predecessor The Dark Knight.¬† Christopher Nolan’s swan song to the batman franchise was quite the conclusion, but what lies in the future for Warner Bros./DC.¬† Well I suppose rebooting America’s favorite superhero of all time will have to be ample recompense:

Let’s all hope that Zack Snyder doesn’t do to Superman whatever the hell it is he did to Watchmen and Sucker Punch.¬† It does look like the franchise is in good hands however as¬†Christopher Nolan is producing the film and let’s be honest, that guy knows whatsup.¬† The film seems to be peppered with the darker and more grounded tone that¬†Nolan used to reinvigorate the Batman Franchise.¬† With Nolan’s powerhouse trilogy concluding (somewhat), DC/Warner Bros. will be looking to further establish solid superheroes in the DC universe in order to continue competing with Marvel/Disney in Hollywood.

Who is the Man Of Steel?

Superman is a hero that reflects the potential in all of us for greatness; a beacon of light in times that are grim and a glimmer of hope for the hopeless. He‚Äôs an archetype for us to project upon; whether you consider him a messiah or just a Big Blue Boyscout, Superman‚Äôs impact on the genre and pop culture is undeniable.”¬† Let’s take a look.

WOWWWWW.¬† Do i want to see The Dark Knight Rises.¬† Like seriously.¬† FFS.¬† As the summer of the movie nerd approaches its mid-life crisis Christopher Nolan will be ramping up his viral marketing campaign.¬† And he certainly has as evidenced by this content right here.¬† The true question on everyone’s mind however is:¬† Can Tom Hardy’s Bane even get close to stacking up with Heath Ledger’s epic and dark portrayal of Gotham’s Clown Prince of Crime?¬† The God’s alone know my dear friends,¬†but the film should be decent either way as: Anne Hathaway will be portraying villain/heroine/femme fatal Selina Kyle a.k.a. Catwoman, while Marion Catillard is playing Liam Neeson’s daughter a.k.a villain/Batman love interest Miranda Tate or a potential Talia al Ghul.¬† And the young and talented Joseph Gordon Levitt will play a young Dark Knight replacement John Blake a.k.a a possible Robin.¬† What epic tactician’s cataclysm has Jonathan Nolan and his brother been able to concoct?¬† We will soon find out as The Dark Knight Rises can be seen in IMAX and 3d in less than a month on July 20th.¬†

Breaking news (via viral marketing) tells us that Gotham City is currently experiencing a slew of cat-related burglaries:

“All the victims were wealthy folks, who lost jewelry, family heirlooms and other precious valuables. The suspect is said to be dressed all in black, and is capable of a quick getaway.¬† Some of the victims were at a Wayne Enterprises event when their homes were burglarized.¬† The Observer adds that Deputy Police Commissioner Peter Foley¬†(played by Matthew Modine) is heading up a task force composed of the GCPD’s brightest young recruits to catch the thief.”

WHO is Gotham’s Female Robin Hood?¬† A femme-fatal who refuses to kill, drowned in dichotomies and characterized by her allegiance ambiguity?¬† Let’s take a look.

Strategic Bloodthirst

The brutal yet delightful showdown between Marvel and DC rages on as Warner Bros. execs are scrambling to make some moves seeing as they have to sit back and watch The Avengers become a worldwide box office juggernaut (1.4$ billion) while it boasts a formidable critical reception(93%).¬†¬†Warner Bros. president and CEO Jeff Robinov and company have their work cut our for them as sources say they are currently spit-balling ferociously to figure out how to put a successful and high-caliber Justice League of America franchise together.¬† A major factor in accomplishing such a feat involves wooing and recruiting¬† big boss-man randy savage Christopher Nolan to spearhead what would essentially be a “JLA initiative”re-invigorating¬†Warner Bros’ stake in Hollywood.

High ups in the Warner Brother roster even openly admitted that Marvel/Disney is doing a much better job than they are:

Quote1.pngSources indicate that the execs now realize they need to hire creatives that genuinely understand the characters the way Joss Whedon was comfortable with The AvengersQuote2.png

If these people just knew what was up with the Four Basic Personality Types, maybe they’d have a viable Super-quad right now.

DC/ Warner Bros. however is still in the fight as it has yet to unleash the epic dope sauce-ee-ness that will be The Dark Knight Rises.¬† Other than that though, they indeed better start making some moves, as Marvel/Disney continues to put itself in a position to dominate Hollywood’s lucrative box-office.

Speaking of Hollywood dominance for those of you silly gooses who aren’t well-versed, the¬†The Avengers Easter Egg post-credits scene revealed that the next major villain for Earth’s Mightiest hero’s will be none other than the Mad Titan himself, Thanos the Overmaster.¬† A Bloodthirsty Intergalactic General on a mission to rid the universe of existence, if Thanos is conceived and casted correctly; he could serve as Marvel’s ultimate supervillain.

Who is Marvel’s God of War you ask? A character based off of the Greek God of Death?¬† Let’s take a look.
