We usually keep the meme stuff in Page 2 or Superhero Bits, but I thought this one was particularly funny. Yesterday, after Zack Snyder revealed the first photo of Ben Affleck in the Batman costume alongside the new batmobile (from the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie), the internet took to photoshop and started cropping sad Batfleck into various funny photos and animated gifs. Basically, its the geek version of the Sad Keanu meme from 2010. Hit the jump to see some of the best of the photos and even get a template to create your own Ben Affleck sad Batman photos.

Zack Snyder revealed both the new Batman costume and the Batmobile from his upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman. It’s a moody black and white shot, and we don’t really get to see the full car, but I think the fact that Ben Affleck‘s Batman is standing next to it, in costume, is more than enough to make up for that. See the first image of the new Batman suit and Batmobile below. Read More »

For years, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been trying to make a movie about a ’70s sex scandal involving two Yankees pitchers. Development has been slow going, and the film has been threatened with a lawsuit by one of its real-life subjects. But now The Trade is finally moving forward again, under new director Jay Roach.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that while Affleck and Damon are still producing, they’re no longer starring as originally planned. Hit the jump for the latest updates on this salacious project.
The combined demands of promoting David Fincher’s Gone Girl (above) and acting in Zack Synder’s Batman vs. Superman have served to push back Ben Affleck’s next movie as director. For months Affleck has planned to make Live By Night, based on the book by Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River author Dennis Lehane. Affleck will still make the film, but it is now third in line behind the two aforementioned projects. Live By Night will have to cool its heels waiting for an evening in 2016. Info on that, and a few other Warner date changes, is below. Read More »

One of the most underrated reality series is HBO’s Project Greenlight. The show, executive produced and judged by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, began in 2001. The premise was that producers waded through submissions from filmmakers and screenwriters, then paired the best in each category to make a movie. Three feature length movies were made as a result of the show. The series launched the careers of Saw writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, horror director John Gulager, and featured a young Shia LaBeouf, among others. Unfortunately, the reality series never really hit with mainstream audiences and HBO let it go after three seasons.
That’ll change soon though as Damon and Affleck are now bringing back the reality competition for a new decade. One person who won’t be involved, however, is another Project Greenlight producer: Chris Moore. He’s currently working on a similar film-centric reality series called The Chair for Starz. Read about both shows below. Read More »

Here’s the first full Gone Girl trailer, showing us the fruits of David Fincher‘s recent labors. The thriller adapts Gillian Flynn‘s best-selling novel (with a new ending scripted by Flynn) and stars Ben Affleck as a man whose wife (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on their fifth wedding anniversary. As the mystery of her disappearance persists, eyes turn towards Affleck.
This trailer should keep fans of the book happy, as it has more than enough imagery to recall the book’s key moments and general tone. And movie fans should love this teaser as it lays out many basic concepts without giving away anything specific. This looks and feels like a mystery, and a very engaging one at that. Read More »

With Batman vs. Superman now set to open May 6, 2016 instead of July 17, 2015, it’ll be some time before we get to see Ben Affleck in his new batsuit. But Jennifer Garner doesn’t have to wait that long, because one of the perks of being married to a superhero is getting to see the costume first. And according to her, it’s nothing like the previous incarnations of the uniform. Hit the jump to see what she had to say.
