Ben Affleck directing Batman

With the San Diego Comic-Con just a couple weeks away, we’re likely going to get an onslaught of new information and sneak peeks at whatever Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have in store for the DC Comics cinematic universe.

The new comic book sandbox won’t kick into full gear until Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives, and then we’ve got a whole slew of DC heroes headed towards the big screen over the next few years. We’ve already got a full slate of films lined up through 2019, but it sounds like some of those plans might be expanding if a new rumor is to be believed.

Reportedly, Warner Bros. has Ben Affleck lined up to direct his own solo Batman movie for release in the fall of 2018. Find out more about Ben Affleck directing Batman after the jump. Read More »

Green Lantern Rebirth cover

One of the questions surrounding Warner Bros.’ upcoming Green Lantern movie is which Green Lantern it’ll center on. There have been several of them in the comics, since they’re all part of a single intergalactic police force called the Green Lantern Corps.

Well, now the rumor is that the Green Lantern movie won’t focus on any one of those — because it’ll follow multiple Green Lanterns. And that Chris Pine, who was recently reported as being in talks for Wonder Woman, could play one of them. More on the Green Lantern rumors after the jump.  Read More »
