Ben Affleck's Batman Movie Release Date

For awhile now, Warner Bros. Pictures has had their release slate for the DC Extended Universe locked down for the next few years with some minor changes here and tehre. However, there has been another change made to the schedule in order to accommodate a movie that wasn’t part of the original ambitious schedule for DC Comics movies down the pipeline.

Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice all the way back in August of 2013, but it wasn’t until the following summer that we got word of Warner Bros. developing a new solo Batman movie. Since then the movie has grown to be quite an anticipated project with Ben Affleck working on the script with DC’s Geoff Johns as well as getting behind the camera as director.

Now we have an idea of when to expect Ben Affleck’s movie, reportedly titled The Batman, in theaters, because one of DC’s scheduled superhero movies is being pushed back for it. Find out more about Ben Affleck’s Batman movie release date below. Read More »

Fist Fight trailer: Ice Cube and Charlie Day

Why should teenagers get to be the only ones embroiled in high school drama? In Fist Fight, the battle is between two teachers. Mr. Campbell is your typical Charlie Day character, which is to say (as Kumail Nanjiani puts it in the trailer) he is “probably a nice guy, but a bit of a worm and a sneak.” And Mr. Strickland is your typical Ice Cube character, which is to say he’s got a “scary but effective” reputation as a hothead. When a conflict between them escalates to the point of physical violence, everyone in school — from the teachers to the students — gets invested.

Fist Fight is the feature directing debut of Richie Keen (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and features a top-notch comedic cast including Jillian Bell and Tracy Morgan. And unlike a lot of comedy trailers we’ve seen lately, this one looks like it might actually live up to the potential of the talent involved. Watch the Fist Fight trailer below. Read More »

ApeMeetsGirl Batman Begins Prints

Every now and then Hero Complex Gallery likes to have secret screenings of movies in Los Angeles, and accompanying those screenings is always a cool new print commemorating the movie in some way. This past weekend brought another one of those screenings, and along with it came not just one but two new prints from ApeMeetsGirl.

This time, it was Batman Begins that was the secret screening, and the two prints act as a before and after of the home and training facility of Ra’s Al Ghul and The League of Shadows. Both contrast each other spectacularly and would look great together on a wall.

Foot Locker Space Jam Commercial

As children of the 1990s get more and more nostalgic for the decade that is now over a decade old itself, we’re bound to see movies studios and TV networks going back to the well for more film and TV revivals. One such project is Space Jam 2, the sequel to the Warner Bros. Pictures live-action animated hybrid that had NBA superstar Michael Jordan team up with the Looney Tunes for an intergalactic basketball game.

Space Jam 2 has been rumored for years, but the rumors became more solid when director Justin Lin became attached to the project with NBA player and Trainwreck star LeBron James on board to lead the movie. Many are skeptical this will ever happen, so in the meantime, Foot Locker created a commercial that acts as a sort of mini-Space Jam 2, but with NBA player Blake Griffin stepping up to play the Monstars this time.

Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face

If it’s been a while since you’ve seen Tim Burton’s Batman from 1989, you might not remember that Billy Dee Williams played District Attorney Harvey Dent. In fact, the original plan for Batman Forever before Joel Schumacher took over for Tim Burton was to have the Star Wars star reprise his role and become the Gotham City villain Two-Face. Sadly, we never got to see that happen. But that’s about to change.

The LEGO Batman Movie is bringing the building block version of the Dark Knight back to the big screen, and after seeing the trailers, it’s one of our most anticipated movies of 2017. Now we have even more reason to be excited because Billy Dee Williams will be voicing Two-Face in the animated movie. Read More »
