Ben Affleck Reportedly Signs Up For DCEU's Batman Trilogy And A Future 'Batman Beyond' Adaptation

He may have been considered by fans to be the best part of the divisive Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Ben Affleck's professional relationship with DC and the greater DC Extended Universe (DCEU) has been uncertain as of late. Affleck was rumored to be having disagreements with producers, ranging from creative differences to a general dissatisfaction with the DCEU's current direction. These rumors, however, may have finally been put to rest by Ben Affleck, who reportedly just signed up to be a part of the DCEU for the long haul.

Bat-Fleck, More BatmanMovies And Beyond

Comicbookmovie.com have reported that the actor-director of critically acclaimed features like Argo and The Town just signed a contract that solidified his future in the . According to the website's Warner Brothers insiders, Affleck signed on to reprise his role as Gotham's Dark Knight for director Matt Reeves' planned Batman trilogy and the future Batman Beyond adaptations.

"Affleck has signed on to appear as the Batman in Matt Reeves Trilogy. Affleck will play the Dark Knight for three more films, with the last leading into a Batman Beyond film, which will also lead to the next phase of the DC Extended Universe."

While Reeves' take on the Caped Crusader's nocturnal escapades in the crime-ridden Gotham City will surely be something to look out for, the most interesting development here is the confirmation of a DCEU adaptation of .

 

 

 

Batman Beyond was an animated series that acted as a sequel to the critically acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series. Here, an aging Bruce Wayne (Kevin Conroy) has retired and passed the mantle to Terry McGinnis (Will Friedle) in a futuristic, crime-infested Gotham City where old and new foes roam the streets.

Despite being an original concept that didn't start out as a comic,Batman Beyond spawned a large following and has since been considered to be a part of the greater DC canon.

DC and Warner Brothers have been trying to adapt McGinnis' crime-fighting crusade to the big screen for years, but their efforts have proven futile. Following the failure of Batman and Robin in 1997, DC shuffled their plans for a Batman reboot, including a live-action take on Batman Beyond. In the end, DC placed its trust in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy, which proved to be a fantastic decision from the studio.

By the time the DCEU would be ready to adapt Batman Beyond, Affleck would be the perfect age to finally take a back seat. Not only will Affleck's age make him a perfect fit for an older Bruce Wayne, but his continued presence in the DCEU would strengthen the cinematic universe's continuity while keeping one of its fan-favorite characters around for a little while longer.

The DCEU may have gotten off to a rocky start, but it's finally shaping up to be the cinematic universe that DC fans deserve. With Ben Affleck's reportedly renewed presence as the most bad-ass Batman to ever hit the big screen, things are looking up for Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Univer

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Is Batman in Flashpoint?

 

 

Warner Bros. had a pretty eventful panel today, packed with a few surprises. For a lot of DC fans the silent announcement of a Flashpoint movie was the most exciting reveal of the day, or quite possibly the last year. And now things are starting to get a little (or a lot) more interesting as Jeffrey Dean Morgan could end up being the next Batman.

Morgan and Lauren Cohan play Thomas and Martha Wayne, respectively in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and as it's known to DC fans, those two play a large part of Flashpoint, the just announced title for The Flash movie

While at San Diego's Comic-Con at the Walking Dead panel, the Jeffrey Dean Morgan Twitter account posted an image of him and Cohan at the Walking Dead panel, but the interesting part about the post is the caption. The caption reads: "Did you say... Flashpoint?" and then tagged Lauren Cohan in the post. Morgan has expressed interest in a [Flashpoint} project with him jumping into the role of The Dark Knight and that could very well become a reality now.

The Flashpoint storyline was written by DC's Geoff Johns and tells the story of Barry Allen traveling back in time to try and stop the murder of his mother. When he returns to the present day, he finds that his mother is still alive but the world is an entirely different place from the one that he initially left behind. The alternate reality is not a pretty one, the Justice League no longer exists and most importantly here, the robbery of the Wayne family takes an interesting twist as Bruce Wayne is murdered instead of his family. Ultimately, Thomas Wayne becomes Batman and Martha Wayne becomes the Joker.

Now this is speculation at this point, but this could end up being the reason that rumors started to swirl about the studio giving Ben Affleck the boot from The Batman. Affleck addressed those rumors today by stating that he'd play the part of Batman for as long as the studio will have him and the Warner Bros. has pretty much echoed that statement lately. Although it has not been confirmed that Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan will play a part in Flashpoint, it does make an awful lot of sense and plus, it looks like Morgan is having a lot of fun with us already... But Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the Thomas Wayne version of Batman just sounds almost too perfect.

Flashpoint turned the universe on its side in the comic books, imagine what it could do to the DCEU... Again, this is all pure speculation at this point, but it does make sense on a bunch of different levels that Flashpoint would work out this way. Let the Batman wars start up all over again; Ben Affleck might finally lose those Christian Bale comparisons real soon and have to compete with Jeffrey Dean Morgan for Batman supremacy. IN the meantime check out Jeffrey Dean Morgan's social media post below. At this time, Flashpoint doesn't have a director.

WOW, BATMAN IS OUT !!! Warner Bro. will replace him !!!!!

 

Ben Affleck out as Batman? Warner Bros. eyes replacing him

With Matt Reeves replacing Ben Affleck as director of The Batman, and recently revealing he’d tossed out Affleck and Geoff Johns’ script, many fans were wondering when Affleck himself might jump ship from the role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. Pictures is mulling over that very thing, with an eye towards replacing Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman in an upcoming DC Extended Universe movie, very likely The Batman.

While Affleck will reprise the role in the upcoming Justice League, his third time at bat after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, either the studio or the actor himself (or both) are not happy with the way the DC movies are shaping up. It could also be a simple case of ageism, with the nearly 45-year-old Affleck far older than any of his fellow Justice Leaguers. Zack Snyder envisioned this iteration of the Dark Knight as an older, battle-hardened Batman who’d been beating up criminals in Gotham City for years by the time we catch up to him. Snyder has now exited the DC universe, with Joss Whedon taking over extensive reshoots on Justice League before filming his own Batgirl within the next year or two. The Batman is being eyed as the first in a potential trilogy, so if Affleck was getting cold feet about the role, it would definitely be a good idea for him to step out before the first one shoots.

However, the studio’s current line is Affleck is still all-in, with studio chief Toby Emmerich saying, “Ben is our Batman. We love him as Batman. We want to keep him in the cowl as long as we can.”

In the upcoming Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, with Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.

Justice League is set to hit the big screen November 10.

Spider-Man: Homecoming in Same Universe as Venom, Silver & Black Films

 

In an interview last April, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said that Sony Pictures’ Venom and Silver & Black films would not be connected to Marvel Cinematic Universe or to their version of Spider-Man. Director Jon Watts, who will helm the wall-crawler’s first MCU solo film, also insisted that Venom would not be connected to the MCU at all. However, while in an interview Filmstarts, Spider-Man:

Homecoming andVenom producer Amy Pascal said that Venom andSilver & Black would take place in the same universe asSpider-Man: Homecoming, which would mean they also take place in the MCU.

“Well, those movies will all take place in the world that we’re now creating for Peter Parker,” Pascal said while sitting beside Feige. “They’ll all be adjuncts to it. They may be different locations, but it will still all be in the same world. They will all be connected to each other as well.”
When asked if Tom Holland would appear in any of the films, Pascal responded, “There’s a chance. There’s always a chance. I think one of the things that Kevin has done with Marvel that’s so brilliant is bringing the fans along and making each movie seem like a chapter in a book that you have to read in order to go forward, and I think the investment that the fans get to feel in being part of a larger story and understanding what’s happening is something that I know Sony would want to emulate.”
Silver & Black‘s and Venom‘s releases are still quite far out, so Holland appearing in those films is neither a foregone conclusion nor a certainty at this stage. However, Holland’s contract only specifies six films, three of which are solo Spider-Man films.
Two of the other three movies are presumed to be the upcomingAvengers films, Avengers: Infinity War and the currently untitled Avengers 4. The actor did mention that there are options in his contract that could be exercised whenever and used a cameo in an Avengers movie as an example, so it’s possible one of those options might allow him to appear in Venom or Silver & Black.

Wonder Woman Movie Coming June-02-17.....

 

 

Release Date: June 2, 2017

 

Director: Patty Jenkins

 

Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, and Lucy Davis.

What We Know So Far: Gadot made her first appearance as the character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will appear in Justice League, but not before she gets her own standalone film, and a World War I one at that. This marks the first female-led superhero movie of the modern era, and it will fittingly be directed by a woman.

However, while Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones veteran Michelle MacLaren was previously attached to direct, she departed over creative differences and Warner Bros. subsequently enlisted Monster helmer Jenkins, who herself was previously attached to Marvel’s Thor 2. Cast-wise, Pine plays Wonder Woman’s love interest Steve Trevor, a pilot who washes ashore on Diana Prince’s island paradise and tells her of the horrors of WWI happening in the outside world.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.

Cullen Bunn scares up new horror series Regression at Image Comics !!! Avaliable 05-10 -17

 

It comes as no surprise that Cullen Bunn likes to write horror, since he apparently doesn't ever sleep. Just this week saw the release of his Monsters Unleashed event for Marvel, and he continues to helm the relaunch of Micronauts at IDW ... as well as writing his own chilling creation Harrow County at Dark Horse. And I'm sure I'm forgetting some other comics he's writing, such as Deadpool: Back in Black and Uncanny X-Men.

Quite fittingly, his next big project is a creator-owned book about a guy with waking nightmares at one of the few major publishers left for him to conquer: Image Comics. His new series, Regression, is set to debut in May and will feature art by Haunted artist Danny Luckert, with colors and lettering by Marie Enger (Pistolwhip).

The story follows a man named Adrian as he desperately turns to past-life regression hypnotherapy in an attempt to cure his visions. On top of the lack of sleep, the hypnotherapy is another aspect that Bunn is pulling from real-life experiences.

"My father was a professional hypnotist for many years," the writer explains in the press release. "While it wasn't part of his on-stage act, he often conducted past life regressions. During these sessions I saw people describing other time periods with pinpoint accuracy and even saw someone speaking a language they didn't know. I also witnessed some really extremely creepy regressions that planted the seeds for this story of supernatural horror conspiracy."

In Adrian's regression, he'll see something even more horrifying than the visions he was trying to get rid of ... and will be followed back by something unspeakable. The series promises "a world of occult conspiracy, mystery, reincarnation and insanity — from which there is no escape."

Readers of Bunn's horror titles like Harrow County or The Sixth Gun will definitely want to check out his first work with Image Comics when Regression #1 hits comic book stores on May 10.

But be careful ... you may end up getting as little sleep as the writer.

Marvel, Brian Michael Bendis Bringing Back 'The Defenders' Comic Book Series !!!!

 

 

 

Marvel Comics is bringing back The Defenders as a comic, but this time it’s coming with the Netflix state of mind.

Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist, heroes who are headlining their own shows on Netflix and are to team up for a show called Defenders, will now partner up on the publishing side.

Brian Michael Bendis, one of Marvel’s most popular writers, and artist David Marquez, who worked with Bendis on books featuring Spider-Man and Iron Man, are behind the new ongoing series, which will launch in June, after receiving a preview in the publisher’s Free Comic Book Day offering in May.

Defenders was a comic Marvel first launched in the early 1970s and it mostly included a fluctuating roster of heroes, with Doctor Strange and the Hulk being strands throughout. In 2013, Netflix and Marvel announced their plans for a Defenders television miniseries.

While it’s true there’s the upcoming Netflix show, Marvel’s senior vp executive editor Tom Brevoort says the roots for the new book grow from 2012, when Bendis wrapped up his run on New Avengers, the team book that consisted of Cage, Jones, Fist and Daredevil — along with Wolverine, Spider-Man and others.

“There are a lot of fans who will say, 'Oh they’re doing a TV show, so of course there’s going to be a comic,' but at least in this case, there’s a comic I can point you to," Brevoort tells Heat Vision. "Read the last two pages of Brian’s New Avengers! Certainly that there is a big new exciting Netflix TV show coming is a good excuse for us to get to that story that we planted the seed on.”

Thus, Defenders sees Bendis' return to private investigator Jones, whom he co-created, and Cage, whom he returned to prominence in 2005 by including him in an Avengers lineup that was initially met with skepticism. And of course, Daredevil, for whom Bendis wrote a defining run for five years, working with artist Alex Maleev, in the early 2000s that was gritty and grounded.

“You will get Jessica Jones looking out her window, street-level, and my return to Daredevil, which will be different than what I and Alex did before,” says Bendis. "And Luke and Danny, characters that I have a strong affinity for. I spent most of the oughts being mocked for the love of Luke Cage. Now that Luke Cage is a household name, I just sit back in my chair and laugh and laugh.”

In keeping with the tone of the Netflix shows, which, of course, are based on the gray worlds of the heroes’ stories, Defenders sees the group banding to take on the various criminal empires vying for dominance in New York City and the neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen.

“I wanted to do a sprawling, Godfather-like epic at the street level of the Marvel Universe, really putting out hooks down and creating a modern, elaborate organized crime story that is different than what has gone before, but builds on everything that has happened to these characters, as individuals or as a team, and putting them in the hardest battle for the street that anyone can imagine."

For Defenders, Bendis is reteaming with Marquez, both coming off of the event series Civil War II.

"Usually, when an artist is finished with a book like that, they want something quieter,” says Bendis of the artist, who, like Bendis, lives in Portland. “This is the least quiet, ‘quiet book’ to do after an event.”

Bendis says his authorship of the book is going be ongoing, a hallmark of the writer in an era where many scribes do just half-year or yearlong contracts.

“I love ongoing titles. I love what happens in the second year of titles…. There’s a lot of hit-and-run writers and artists, I get that, but I find the real substance is when you’ve made a commitment. If you say to yourself, 'I’m only staying for six issues,' you've already kind of left. If you say to yourself, 'I’m staying,' then you really commit to it on a level that is important to the reader."

Mark Strong To Star In ‘Deep State’ For Fox Networks Group....

 

 

Mark Strong is set to star in espionage thriller Deep State, Fox Networks Group’s first regional scripted commission for Europe and Africa. The eight-episode hourlong original series (which previously was announced under the working title The Nine) is written by Matthew Parkhill (Rogue), Simon Maxwell (American Odyssey) and Steve Thompson (Sherlock, Dr Who) and will air in more than 50 countries via Fox.

The intense, character-driven espionage thriller is set in Britain, the U.S., Iran, Lebanon and France and shows the merciless reality of the world of espionage in which an increasingly rare conscience can get you, and the ones you love, killed.

Strong will play Max Easton, a man caught between two versions of himself — the past and the present. An ex-spy, Max is brought back into the game to avenge the death of his son, only to find himself at the heart of a covert intelligence war and a conspiracy to profit from the spread of chaos throughout the Middle East.

Alongside Strong, breakthrough talent Karima McAdams (Fearless, Vikings) has joined to play Leyla Toumi, a smart and uncompromising elite intelligence operative.

Robert Connolly, the helmer behind ABC-BBC miniseries The Slap, will direct Episodes 1-4. Connolly recently directed Sam Worthington and Deborah Mailman starrer Paper Planes as well as political thriller Balibo, starring Oscar Isaac and Anthony LaPaglia.

Parkhill has written the pilot and will serve as showrunner. He also will direct four of the eight episodes and exec produce. Co-creator Maxwell will write and exec produce with Tom Nash producing for Endor Productions. Khadija Alami (Homeland, The Night Manager) produces for Moroccan-based K-Films. Hilary Bevan Jones, Alan Greenspan of 6 Degree Media and Helen Flint of Little Island Productions serve as exec producers alongside FNG’s Jeff Ford and Sara Johnson.

“Every now and again a script comes along that you just can’t put down, and Deep State is exactly that – a great example of the best kind of writing,” said Strong. “I’m incredibly proud to be working with FNG on their first regional scripted commission. They have put together an excellent team, and I’m very much looking forward to collaborating with Robert Connolly, Matthew Parkhill, Hilary Bevan Jones. With scripts from Matthew, Simon Maxwell and Steve Thompson, producers Tom Nash and Khadija Alami and with David Higgs as DoP and Pat Campbell designing, it makes this for me an unmissable opportunity to return to television.”

Deep State will begin shooting in May. Fox Networks Group Content Distribution holds exclusive global rights for the series, working in partnership with FNG Europe & Africa.

It opens on September 8, the weekend after Labor Day — which has been a hotbed for Warner Bros in the past with the opening of Clint Eastwood’s Sully ($35M) and the Steven Soderbergh thriller Contagion ($22.4M). The pic starring Bill Skarsgård is produced by Dan Lin, Roy Lee, David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith and Barbara Muschietti.

Jennifer Lawrence Becomes A ‘Red Sparrow’: 20th Century Fox Unveils Intense Spy Trailer At CinemaCon...

 

 

 

20th Century Fox dropped a trailer for Red Sparrowthe movie that reteams Jennifer Lawrence with her Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence. Deadline broke the story about this pic, based on Jason Matthews’ novel about a Russian ballerina-turned-spy seductress, or Red Sparrow. Her target? A CIA guy played by Joel Edgerton.

Rich in gold, red and fall tones, we see Lawrence’s Dominika Egorova weathering a severe leg injury onstage. She recovers and is given the chance in a lush hotel bar “to become special again” by a Russian intel officer. Charlotte Rampling’s voice-over carries the rest of the trailer as we see shots of the snow, and the French-designed estates of Russia.

“You will be schooled in psychological manipulation. Every human is a puzzle of need. You will be trained to determine target’s weakness and exploit that weakness through seduction. From this moment forward you will become sparrows, weapons of Russia.”

Then Rampling tells Lawrence’s protag, “If you can’t be of service to the state, I’m to put a bullet through your head.” The movie can’t get here soon enough. The last part of the title card flashes “Now in production.”

Venom Movie is confirmed, coming 2018 .....

 

 

 

 This July, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” will get a whole new lease on life. Thanks to a deal between Sony and Marvel Studios, Spidey has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it looks as though he didn’t come alone. Sony has a “Venom” film in the works with a projected release date of October 5, 2018.

When reached by CBR, Sony confirmed the release date. The studio also confirmed that Scott Rosenberg and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s” Jeff Pinkner are on board to pen the script.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Venom” doesn’t have a director. Longtime “Spider-Man” producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach will continue to produce and oversee the project. The studio plans to use “Venom” to launch a franchise.
The report claims that the project is from Sony and does not mention Marvel Studios. Though it seems likely that Venom will also be part of the MCU, it is unconfirmed at this time.
Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe film “Aquaman” originally targeted October 5, 2018 for a release date as well. However, the film’s release date was pushed back by two months earlier today.
In the comics, Venom was originally a Spider-Man villain, an alien symbiote which brought out the worst in our friendly neighborhood Peter Parker. He has become more than that in recent years, after the creature was bonded to Flash Thompson, a bully-turned-government-agent. It is unknown at this time which version of the character will appear in the film, though it seems more likely it will be the Flash incarnation.
