The Batman is in good hands right now. Putting aside whatever you think of Zack Snyder‘s portrayal of the character, it’s Ben Affleck who has the keys to Batman franchise. The director of Gone Baby Gone, The Town, and Argo is making the next Batman film, so there’s reason to look forward to the future of these movies. We still don’t fully know what to expect from Affleck’s vision for Batman, but we do know what the franchise would look like if The Dark Knight Returns writer Frank Miller had his druthers.

Frank Miller has been one of the most fascinating people in the comic industry for over thirty years now, writing and drawing stories that have left a profound impact on how we view the medium. He’s also created his fair share of controversial material, work that forces you to confront his earlier comics in a new light. He’s not the kind of artist who you simply embrace. To appreciate Frank Miller is to struggle with Frank Miller and the giant thumbprint he’s left on superhero comics.
And he’s impacted few characters quite like how he’s impacted Batman. In fascinating new interview, Miller speaks about his work, his politics, whether or not he watches movies influences by his work, and, most fascinatingly, the work he did with director Darren Aronofsky on an unmade Batman film.

Judging by the first box-office numbers for the Sin City sequel, the real question here might be “did you even see it?” Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez have returned to the black, white, and bloody world of their first collaboration with a couple more stories adapted from Miller’s Sin City comics stories, along with some new material. The first film was novel and striking in aesthetic, and the sequel still looks like almost nothing else.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For brings back some familiar faces (Powers Boothe, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson ,and Mickey Rourke in extreme makeup) to get into some super-dark and violent dealings with new characters played by Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Christopher Meloni. Josh Brolin takes over the character originally played by Clive Owen, while Dennis Haysbert inherits the role originated by the late Michael Clarke Duncan.
That’s a lot of talent, but do all their efforts make for a film that offers audiences a satisfying trip to the underbelly of Sin City? Weigh in below.

The most recent run of Batman films, directed by Christopher Nolan, bore significant Miller influence, not least being the title The Dark Knight. But Miller hasn’t seen those movies. In fact, Frank Miller hates Batman movies, and can hardly bear to watch any film based on characters he has worked on. Read More »
