The DC Comics superhero ensemble was on the verge of starting production, but the actor wasn’t sure if he was needed just yet. But that seems to have changed in the past couple months.
While appearing at MCM London Comic-Con over the weekend, Jesse Eisenberg confirmed that we’ll see the return of Lex Luthor in Justice League. And if the previous rumor is to be believed, that means we’ll have at least two villains appearing in the film. Read More »

Jeremy Irons‘ Alfred Pennyworth was one of the best parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a welcome font of warmth and humor in an otherwise pitch-dark movie. Nevertheless, he’s well aware of the drubbing that the film has received from critics, and he’s even inclined to agree that it “deserved” those terrible reviews. But don’t worry — he sounds more optimistic about Justice League, in which he’ll reprise his role as Batman’s loyal butler. And not just because the role gives him “a bit of an income,” as he puts it. Read More »

In 2005, screenwriter Shane Black made his directorial debut with the wonderful Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, but years before he directed his first feature, he co-wrote The Nice Guys with Anthony Bagarozzi. The finished film is quite different from the original draft, but the spirit of that script has remained intact throughout the years. Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) and Holland March (Ryan Gosling) are still the same flawed and immensely charming duo they first were.
By this point, Black is an old hand at writing buddy films. The writer behind Lethal Weapon, The Long Kiss Goodnight, and The Last Action Hero has written some of the most memorable on-screen duos of the past 25 years. We’ll see if Healy and March manage to stand the test of time like some of Black’s other characters, but it’s difficult to imagine audiences not sharing Black’s enthusiasm for these two down in the dumps heroes.
The Nice Guys director, who’s affection for Healy and March rings loud and clear in the film, was kind enough to discuss his latest film with us. Below, read our Shane Black interview.
